Something Old, Something Vintage

Share Article

Vintage is often thought of as something old. However, as soon as the British public saw Kate Middleton emerge in vintage lace, it soon became the latest trend. Expert floral designer, Beverley Nichols, says “Most brides want to go for what’s in fashion – and vintage was seen to superb advantage in the wedding flowers of Kate Middleton and Prince William on 29 April 2011.”

“This beautiful soft look is so appropriate in the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, when I’m sure we will be seeing vintage colours and textures resonating in wedding outfits and millinery.”

Flowers chosen for their texture and depth complement the trend for bridal fabrics such as lace, Beverley describes this Spring’s colour schemes, “there will be lots of soft pastel shades and including peach and nude shades. Peach hasn't been popular for several years so is making an impressive welcome return,” says Beverley, who has over 20 years floristry experience, including working on previous Royal weddings.

“This beautiful soft look is so appropriate in the year of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, when I’m sure we will be seeing vintage colours and textures resonating in wedding outfits and millinery.” Beverley has had exceptional experience working with London florists who designed flowers for the Queen Mothers 100th birthday, whose favourite flowers were soft tumbling roses designed to have the perfect vintage garden feel.

Beverley’s top tip for texture is to use blooms that have numerous petals creating wonderful texture. “We love using blowsy flowers such as peonies, double lisianthus and old English roses, which give depth and character for that perfect vintage look. This layered look is stunning in wedding photography.”

Beverley also provides prop hire items, which can be used exceptionally well to enhance the vintage look. Beverley explains the prop hire items that are currently the most popular for Spring 2012, “Bird cages are still very popular and elegant silver candelabra decorated with soft textured flowers such as peonies hydrangea and roses.”
