Hello there Desi Brides!

Today on the blog I have the lovely Reena from Floral Creations.

I’m not going to lie, I am been stalking her exquisite floral statement pieces even before I was engaged! There is something so unique and different about these beautiful pieces and I don’t really know what it is but they are a cut above the rest, so elegant, timeless and luxurious, they really are a brides dream come true.

I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Reena and introducing her new Mahrani Collection for 2015! So you ready? Here it goes…

Tell us a bit about the wonderful Floral Creations? 

Floral Creations by Reena (headed up by me)  specialises in bespoke custom made bridal bouquets that can be made with fresh flowers, silk flowers, crystal and brooch bouquets. I also have a collection of buttonholes, garlands, bridesmaids bouquets and I can also supply custom made pieces for table settings.

How and when did you launch Floral Creations?

I started off completing floristry courses and slowly started taking small orders around my local area. I began with fresh flowers only as that is what is taught on the course. Everything I do with silk flowers and my crystal and brooch bouquets is what I have taught myself! I initially started off by doing everything from weddings, funerals and gift bouquets as well as being a qualified florist too. I also did set up my own shop however it did not go to plan.  But what they say is true, although that door closed, another door opened and that’s when I started specialising within the wedding industry and specifically bouquets. I use to notice bouquets in the bridal market however nothing in the Asian wedding industry and this is what became my signature piece, the  jewelled bouquet, which is very popular now within the Asian wedding industry!

How do you go about creating your bespoke bouquets and how do you normally tailor the style and colours to the brides taste?

Choosing the right bouquet can be difficult. My brides often tell me during their consultations that when they see my portfolio and samples there is too much choice as I have made so many!
Firstly the bride must choose between a fresh bouquet or a silk/ crystal and brooch bouquet. Fresh bouquets are just as popular with brides to at the moment. And I do always get asked what’s best to choose but  this is entirely the bride’s choice as its her big day and she needs to feel comfortable with what she’s holding all day long so its definitely personal preference.
I would normally ask for a swatch sample of  the material  the bride will be wearing on her big day, which makes it easier to find the nearest matching colour flowers/ crystals and completely match all bouquets with the outfits! As the bouquets are completely bespoke these can be personalised to either your outfit, theme or anything you want!
Each bouquet is unique and whilst I am focusing on making the bouquet I will always send photos to my brides along the way and get their feedback and see if they want anything changing or altered we then end up with a bridal bouquet that is truly unique!
Tell us a bit about the Floral Creations collection?
My newest collection is called The Maharani Collection. I absolutely love making vintage bouquets but the demand for bouquets to complement Asian bridal outfits is getting higher! This new collection is very regal and luxurious. It has been inspired by Jodhar Akbar and Sabyasachi with the opulent brooches, jewels, deep colours with that added sparkle. It’s a must have for the modern Maharani bride! And I’d love to have a bride that was having one of these Maharani bouquets that was wearing a Sabyasachi bridal outfit too!

Thanks Reena for your time…

I’ll leave you Desi Brides with some gorgeous images of Reena’s bouquets!
