The Meaning of Flowers

March 16, 2013

I recently got married in Edinburgh. Our very talented photographers Crofts & Kowalczyk agreed to be our witnesses. You can find their unique style of photography here

It only took a couple of months to plan as there was just the two of us to think about. The Victorian's meanings and symbolism behind everyday flowers has always intrigued me. I wanted my wedding bouquet to reflect this symbolism so I set about doing my own reserch of flowers that would be avaibale to me at the time of our wedding, the end of feburary.

White Heather: Good luck

White Carnation: Faithfulness

White Lilac: Memories,

Baby's Breath: Pure of Heart

White Carnation: Faithfulness

 

I pressed my flowers the minute I arrived home and began to create some drawings around these. I have decided to take this idea further and create more patterns that involve symbolism and meaning an extra layer of intrigue.
