Language of Love in Flowers

With Valentines around the corner we thought it would be nice to celebrate the two things we can’t imagine the world without; Love and Flowers

Flowers have a language of their own, an expression of feelings with every movement and just like us they are fragile beings, grow, bloom and wither with time.

Floriography has amazed cultures for centuries, around the world and across different religions. In particular during the Victorian England where flowers were used to send love messages through small “talking bouquets” without having to stay the words which were at the time frowned upon . . .

Here are our 6 favorite flowers and their love designation

She Shines Under The Weakest Light

Echeveria, Botanical Beauty from the Desert

Named after a Mexican botanist, Echeverias are quickly gaining a fan base with many brides choosing this attractive plant with leaf rosettes to be at the heart of their wedding theme. Its versatility comes from its range of colors, neatly ordered leaves and the frost-like edges making it a beautiful addition to a rustic wedding across four seasons.

Real Belle Bride {Joana}

Joana came to us with a simple request, to add a little of sparkle to her tea length lace number for her winter nuptials in Germany, of course we said YES to her dress and created this unique belt made from semi precious rhinestones stitched on a large satin belt and the end look was stunning!
