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 in Hampshire. 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. Theme is often linked to the seasons too: a country garden theme will suit bright or pastel spring and summer flowers; warm autumnal flowers are great for a rustic barn wedding; while an opulent winter wedding needs lots of rich colours and fir or pine foliage. Jo’s passion is apparent when making sure that your designs reflect your personality and fulfil 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 to your choice of blooms, colour themes and even bouquet style can seem daunting. Jo explains that 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. The same goes for the wedding venue- Instead of determining a theme around your choice of blooms, it’s recommended to suit the flowers to the overall wedding theme and chosen venue. Statement pieces make a wedding instantly Instagrammable which is where your wedding will be plastered on the day.
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 venue as well as budget. Your budget will impact the styles and sizes that can be created. Jo recommends that by having a realistic budget to work with, she can guide you in the best way and show you possible designs that could become a reality.
Jo Hicks Flowers will be showcasing on Saturday 26th January at our first Wedding Showcase of the year. Make the most of the opportunity to view previous works and to discuss your individual needs and preferences for your Hampshire wedding with Jo between 12pm – 4pm.
