Inspiration

When the bride is a florist by day, you know the floral creations are going to be amazing! Michelle from Floral Sistas most definitely didn't disappoint with the dried flowers wedding decor and details she created at her Norfolk micro wedding. We'll be dreaming of that aisle style for. A. Long. Time. Not only has she got an incredible eye for detail, but she also wows us with her incredible style. Hello, bridal jumpsuit and Valentino Rockstuds. And, as the sign says - LOVE WINS!

After postponing our 2020 wedding to 2021 we soon realised we still wouldn't be able to have the day we wanted and after losing a close family member we realised life's too short and wanted to just go for it! We went back to our original date and held an intimate wedding with our nearest. We called this our 'marriage day' and we will be having our bigger 'wedding day' later this year.

DRIED FLOWERS WEDDING

We decided to keep it quite simple with a modern boho vibe, using a white/natural colour pallet with touches of black and dried flowers wedding decor. Being a florist I knew I wanted a big focal backdrop so we used lots of dried florals, mixed with some fresh orchids and roses. The designs framed the window in the Gatehouse perfectly and looked incredible. I also included lots of boho furniture from The Little Lending Company to complete the look. Candlelight was also important, so we had a large collection of cylinder vases filled with black and white candles.

MOMENTS

We decided to walk down the aisle together. The Gatehouse is set up with two sets of stairs, so Dan went up one side and I went up the other, meeting each other at the top of the aisle and then walking down together to McFlys, Love is Easy. Seeing Dan's face for the first was such a very special moment. Sadly we didn't have any readings due to the restrictions, but when we host our 'wedding day' later this year, we are really looking forward to having an extra special ceremony focused around us as a couple and being able to include many of our friends and family in the ceremony.

Michelle and Dan decided to walk down the aisle together as Michelle still wants the big bride and dad moment on their second wedding day.

During planning, we all worry about so many things, but in the end, it doesn't really matter. Focus on yourselves and what you want. Especially, in these current times, some things can not be controlled, so it's important to do what you want to do.

The dried flowers wedding trend has been about for some time, starting with pampas grass and evolving to dried palm leaves and flowers. We love it! And think Michelle did an incredible job at decorating her own micro wedding with her floral creations.
