We are so excited here at Tesselaars as our annual “Top Gun” florist competition is up and running again and even in a short few days we have had a heap of high quality entries.

Once again, the competition is separated into three categories; Flowers to Wear, Flowers to Carry and Flowers to Decorate. Just looking at these gorgeous images would make any Bride dream of her wedding day.

Flowers to wear

For the ethereal goddess bride, floral crowns are hugely popular once again in this year’s competition. Michelle Holz of Missy La’Belle Boutique Florist designed a floral crown of pretty blooms and on trend native flowers with textured foliage. The floral crown and bouquet compliment beautifully to create this complete bridal look.

Keren Simpson of Wedding Flowers By Keren shows us that floral crowns can be really simple and just as pretty and effective, this example using woven twigs and gypsophila.

Another great example of pretty blooms mixed with textured foliage and natives for a floral crown is from Chloe Hamilton for Flowers Of Envy. All the pink hues in this one are just divine.

Natives are so hot right now with this manly textured buttonhole from Josie Moss of Sweet Pea Florist. The combination of Leucadendron, Kangaroo Paw and native wax flower is so unique.

Dominique Hardy of Dominique Flowers also shows us that buttonholes don’t have to have a traditional floral feature bloom at all. This great example of all textured foliages is sure to make the groom who doesn’t “want to wear a pink flower” happy.

Flowers to carry

Two distinct styles are emerging from the entries in flowers to carry. Firstly, the wild, untamed, free spirited garden posies, full of colour, texture and movement.

This entry from Faye Eid of The Bloom Collective is so popular with Brides at the moment. It features a gorgeous full rustic textured bouquet of Poppies, Astilbe and Roses with textured foliage in beautiful pink tones. The cascading ribbons are a lovely addition to the design.

Secondly, the confined, classic round posy bouquets, are ever popular. Pastel in colour, with soft foliage and feminine blooms. Enjoy this classic, beautiful example of apricot David Austin roses, white Hydrangea and Silver Suede from Erin Cusack of Florette – Flowers by Erin Cusack.

Another trend emerging in Flowers to Carry, is the use of native flowers and foliage. Just like in interior design, deep rich colour tones can be seen, including lots of golds, coppers, deep reds, purples, blues, pinks and greens. We are totally in love with this example from Melanie Levis from Flowers By M.E.L.

Another lovely native design is from Deborah Loves of Botanic Art, which features a King Protea and Blue Gum mixed with Roses.

Flowers to Decorate

Lots of interesting things happening in this category as the application for florals spans from ceremony to reception, from sweet little table centres, like this creation from Vicky Li of Max and Vicky to larger scale installations.

For the wow factor at your outdoor ceremony, this gorgeous installation from Julia Hails of Ginger Lily & Rose Floral Studio makes quite a statement. We love how the wild branches frame the bride and the complete combination of red and yellow blooms is so eye catching.
