In Bloom: Sunflowers

Words by Tom
February 23, 2016

You can’t help but love a sunflower. Sure, they may be at the centre of many a tacky wedding display, but that’s really not their fault.

Used artfully, these bold, joyous beauties will bring an effortless vibrancy to your celebration like few other flowers can. A clutch of two or three giants (like those pictured above by Brooke Adams) make an easy bouquet for a relaxed soiree, while a crown crafted from their smaller cousins is the ultimate in flower power, perfect for a festival wedding.

There’s a bunch of ways to incorporate this quintessentially summer bloom into your big day. Need a little guidance? Be sure to hit up one of our talented florists.
