It is no secret that flowers are an integral part of setting the mood for a wedding. Not only do they make up a large part of the overall design, but they can help express the personality of the couple as each flower has its own meaning; Roses signify romance and love whereas the lily represents majesty, truth and honour.
From the bridal bouquet to the table centre pieces, flowers are a top priority for many brides and grooms and thankfully Jo Hicks, specialist Hampshire florist, is on hand to bring a setting to life and guide you through the journey.
Jo has worked as a specialist in bridal floristry for over 11 years. Whether your wedding is a classic traditional style or something more unusual or modern, Jo is there to support you through the process of deciding what to have and where on the day.
The theme for your wedding is often linked to the seasons. "A country garden theme will suit bright or pastel flowers, warm autumnal flowers are great for a rustic style wedding, while an opulent winter wedding needs lots of rich colours and fir or pine foliage" says Jo.
Jo’s passion is apparent when making sure that your designs reflect your personality and exceed expectations. Her experience and extensive knowledge of wedding floristry also means that she has seen and done it all, from bold and dramatic grand arches to stunning hair combs, wrist corsages and brooches.
Narrowing down the choice of blooms, colour themes and bouquet style can seem daunting. "As with all clothing and accessories, the style and shape of your wedding dress have a huge part to play in the type of flowers you choose" says Jo. "The same goes for the wedding venue - it's best to match flowers to the style of the venue, rather than the other way around".
Whether you're clueless about Carnations or an expert on Hydrangeas, choosing your wedding flowers is a big task. Jo is on hand to guide you through with various options that will work with both your venue as well as your budget.
