Jenny and Peter- The couple tied the knot back in early September after meeting on a night out in Aberdeen. Jenny’s flat mate and Peter, who were both from Newcastle, had many mutual friends in common, giving Jenny an excuse to travel down to visit him a few weeks later. As the saying goes, “the rest was history.”
Danielle and Chris-A wedding with the wow factor” … that was Danielle’s dream for her big day, and choosing to celebrate at Northumberland’s super-luxe, French-inspired wedding venue Le Petit Chateau, gave her exactly that. The first time she visited the truly-unique hotel in Otterburn, she was so blown away that she cried, and knew there and then it was the only place to make her dreams come true.
Florismart's expert florist Katie-Jane Hermes said: "The style of the bouquet is a traditional wired design. Similar to her mother's style but without the ‘S’ shape. It is full of beautiful textures. This is certainly a skilled design to make.

With the bride being a professional florist, the flowers on her big day were bound to be beautiful, and Katie-Jane and Wesley's July wedding certainly didn't disappoint on the floral front.

Florismart Ambassadors and independent florists Katie-Jane Hermes and Lesley Rutter, who have experienced floristry in different eras, offer unique intel into bouquets held by the brides in royal weddings throughout history. Below, Katie-Jane has also recreated Meghan’s bouquet based on the predictions of the flowers she'll carry down the aisle on May 19th to wed Prince Harry.
Katie-Jane predicted that her bouquet will be mostly white and will include Peonies, Garden Roses, Lily of the Valley, Astrantia, Ranunculus and Sweet Peas. She also said that there will be a touch of Myrtle as all past royal bouquets have had. The Myrtle is cut from the same plant used for Queen Victoria’s Bouquet. Furthermore, Katie-Jane thinks that the bouquet will be round-shaped and ensure it’s large and loose enough to show off all of the flowers.
