he spring issue of DPK florist magazine is packed with bridal designs. Floral designer Hanneke Frankema and the team from ‘Meesterlijk Geschikt’, by floral designer Miranda ter Voorde, used various Marginpar flowers to create some brilliant bridal works. We are privileged to share this shoot with you, and we are delighted to do so.
A cascade of flowers
This design is one of our absolute favourites. Clematis is peeping through everywhere, Craspedia is well represented and if you look closely you can also spot some Gloriosa. This beautiful design is held together by a thick gold wire. There are even little accents of Hypericum on thread. (The frequent use of wire mesh earned Hanneke Frankema the nickname 'Iron Lady'.) The waterfall shape is a beautiful match with the dress, don’t you think?

Pretty in purple
This bouquet is made exclusively of Marginpar flowers. We love how a single Clematis is also used in the bride’s hairstyle to make it a whole.
Furthermore, we see the playful grass Chasmantium Latifolium, Aster Dark Milka, Campanula Champion Pink, Scabiosa Scoop™, Limonium China White, de witte Astrantia Billion Star® and three kinds of Clematis Amazing®: Miami, Havana and Vienna.
Not standard, but just as beautiful is this second hand-tied bouquet. Miranda has chosen a less common colour palette. Because of the warm tones and airy way of tying it, this playful bouquet is just a little bit different.
The following flowers are used in the bouquet: Clematis Amazing® Kibo & Sevilla, Daucus Carota 'Dara', Talinum 'Long John', Gloriosa Fifty Shades, Miscanthus Red Cloud, Scabiosa Scoop™, Crocosmia Prince of Orange and Jatropha Firecracker.

Dine in style
Another essential part of a wedding: centerpieces! Look at this beautiful design that will almost make you want to sit at the table the entire wedding and skip the dance floor altogether. Did you notice that the cutlery is also gold, creating beautiful unity on the table?
The centrepieces match the hand-tied bouquet, with the addition of Astrantia Star® of Africa, Panicum Heavy Metal, Chasmantium Latifolium, Astilbe Vision in Pink and Delphinium Guardian Lavender.
We hope we have inspired you to think outside the box when designing bridal works, and remember: the more flowers, the better!
