In Wedding Flowers by Kyla Helgeson1 Comment

WARNING: Prepare to have your mind blown wide open by the following insanely talented floral designers who have entered the 2015 Top Gun Wedding Flowers Contest. They are so worthy of this title as they produce floral pieces that are original, unique, interesting and most importantly, beautiful.

The point of difference might be in the concept, the execution or the combination of materials and textures together. Below are some great examples from the Tesselaar competition entrants, in the categories of flowers to wear, flowers to carry and flowers to decorate.

Who can go past these cute flower girls adorned with native foliage, nuts and blooms from Bella In Bloom. I am absolutely loving the sweet little teepee also decorated with a matching floral design.

Keeping with the outdoor theme, I love the combination of yellow, green and white on the outdoor arbour from Maria Okwa Creative Flowers. This divine setting would be so lovely to sit and have a peaceful drink or two!

There are a lot of hanging flower installations around now as it is such a popular trend, but what I love about this one from Ginger Lily & Rose Floral Studio is the use of tropical leaves and orchids together with classic pretties of Hydrangea, Gerberas and Calla Lilies. All lit up from underneath with Edison globes, it makes for a truly beautiful statement piece.

Another example of hanging flowers, but this time with a twist. I just love it when interior design and florals combine to create a gorgeous outcome, like this by Stylised- The event specialist. Copper, gold and geometrics are very popular in interiors at the moment and these gorgeous shapes collected together, some adorned with flowers and foliage and some without, would be stunning suspended in a reception space.


Also in the reception space you will find the cake. This example from Naturelle is decorated again with this seasons hottest colour of gold and then paired with a lovely combination of succulents, ferns, native nuts and even feathers. I simply love how the colour palette blends this look together.

Here are a couple of designs to wear, perhaps by the Groom, that are so quirky and unique it will have all the guests talking. The first from Rosehip Flowers is a tie made out of a green cordyline leaf decorated with colourful blooms of orchids and succulents.

The second is a floral design to replace a gentleman’s bow tie by Angie’s Floral Design. The floral combination matches the shirt and suit jacket perfectly.

Now the bride cannot be outdone by the Groom. So what better way to shine than with a divine floral crown. And not just the usual halo, but this one from Willow Bud cascades with pale pink and white blooms down the back of the brides hair, so romantic.

Brides can also shine with a floral belt and bracelet from Heavenly Blooms. Keep the dress simple and accessorise it with beautiful flowers and foliage for something really different.

And what about this amazing fascinator from Bloom Culture. It features the most magnificent variegated tulips, roses, molluca balm, succulents and leaves. Finished with hessian and twigs to give a little rustic twist, I just love the way the design flows like a wave.

Speaking of waves, look at this beach design from Wyld Orchids. Certainly not your traditional attire for the bride, but how fabulous. A moss bikini top and matching green beads decorated with gorgeous Phalaenopsis orchid blooms. I love how the matching bouquet plays on a traditional round posy of white roses but then breaks free and is accented with the same orchids and flowing twigs.

  1. Woah. Absolutely incredible. I’ve never seen anything so beautiful for a wedding before. My brother’s wedding was beautifully styled and they had a sweet little teepee made with lace for the children. I like the ribbon one too though. But all the flowers – just magic.
