For a laid-back, romantic look, mix delicate and structured blooms with traditional creamy roses. An intricately embroidered dress with a hint of blue is the perfect match.

ALL SHADES OF BLUE RECEPTION THEME

A rich mix of hydrangeas, freesias and roses in creamy whites and pale blues make for delightful wedding flowers including bouquets, posys, circlets and even hair bands for your little ones.

Don't be afraid to mix different tones of blue together throughout the styling, from your bridesmaids' dresses, too.
