Your Derbyshire Wedding Florist
We really enjoyed creating the seasonal winter wedding flowers for Hannah and Keith, who recently married at Swancar Farm, Nottingham.
We have gotten to know Hannah over the last 2 years or so, as she worked alongside Astra at Timeless Couture who designed and created her beautiful wedding dress. We feel very lucky to share our Derbyshire space with such a talented designer as Astra!
Hannah chose muted pink Roses, grey foliages, white ranunculus, various Eucalyptus's, Genista and cream Hydrangeas and our gold candleabras to complete her glamorous winter wedding look. We also adored the flower crowns worn by her 5 gorgeous bridesmaids (2 of which are also Tineke brides!)
Thank you to Chris Snowden for the amazing photographs.
Interested in the same lovely experience? Then why not book a joint appointment at our Derbyshire studio with both multi award winning florist and dress designer?
We loved working on this couples Summer weekend wedding at Shiningford Farm, where we created rustic inspired wedding flowers.
The bride and groom chose Daisies, astilbe, lisianthus, craspedia, stocks, lavender, love in a mist for their bridal party flowers, and these themed throughout the venue decor and for the buttonholes and corsages.
Their beautiful wedding was featured on http://www.rockmywedding.co.uk/leah-mike/ also, which shows more inspiration and an insight into their day, if you are looking at other inspiration as well as flowers!
Thank you so much to Ben and Hannah at HBA Photography for allowing us to use these images.

We loved creating the meadow themed wedding flowers for Jo and Glenn for their summer wedding in Derbyshire.
Our bride chose a collection of meadow like flowers including daisies, garden roses, delphiniums, lavender, Lisianthus, Nigellas, Thlaspi, Veronicas and Scabious in pastel shades.
We especially loved creating the mini gardens for the guest tables, within wheatgrass!
Beautiful images by Camera Hannah.
This evening, we bring to you a fabulous blog post by Mirlah of our gorgeous friends at Darby and Joan Vintage, hope you enjoy it! Hello there lovelies! Summer is trying to hold on despite the storms, but if it's still a little grey and miserable where you are then we've got a lovely post to brighten up your day!
We're turning our heads to flowers today! Showing you ways to inject floral fun into your wedding day. We've also got a great little interview with some industry experts. We caught up with Tineke Floral Designs who kindly shared with us their tips and what trends are proving popular in 2013.
Ahh I do love a floral crown, there's something so elegant and effortless about them. With festival season well under way, floral crowns are a firm favourite with brides this year. From the elaborate to the delicate. The vibrant to the pastel, floral crowns are a show-stopping way to add a touch of whimsy to your day.
When planning your wedding you'll no doubt face the saying 'don't sweat the small stuff.' Of course the details aren't the be all and end all of your wedding day, but they are the little nuggets of gorgeousness that bring your styling together, and with todays couples turning their hand to a bit of DIY, it's those details that give your day a personal touch too!
You can add some floral fun to your details and styling in so many ways, starting with the invitations. Create a gorgeous memorable scent by adding a sprinkle of lavender or opt for a floral illustration to set the tone.
Create the perfect spot to say 'I do' or say 'Cheese' with floral backdrops for the ceremony or a fabulous photobooth. Jazz up an elegant naked sponge cake with handpicked flowers. Why not add a touch of 'Flower Power' to your favours? Seeds or succulents make wonderful gifts and can double up as place settings too! Perfect!
The High Street this Spring/Summer is adorned with florals and patterns and it's no surprise that wedding fashion is fully immersing itself in this trend too. Whether it's summer brights and big, bold patterns or 'Kitson' inspired pastel prints, there's something for everyone. If you don't want to don the florals on your big day, add subtle touches to your shoes or accessories and leave the rest to your bridesmaids, 50s style dresses are perfect for a bold print. Last but not least, the groom. Who could resist adding a splash of floral pattern to that tie or pocket-handkerchief. Gorgeous.
Over to the Experts
Hello! Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Kerry Wilkinson and I own and run Tineke Floral Designs which was established by myself back in 2005. The company has seen amazing growth from very small beginnings in my parents garden shed with help from my ever understanding and supporting partner Andy, along with brother John and his partner Shaun. We now have on board Avie and the help from my Dad and other brother Martin.
What do you enjoy most about being a Floral Designer?
I enjoy bringing peoples visions and dreams to life on their wedding day and seeing all of the beautiful ideas come to life.
What trends have you been seeing recently in 2013?
We have certainly seen more colours and vibrancy within floral designs and people are opting for more glamorous designs using silverware and glass.
What advice would you give to couples beginning to choose their wedding flowers?
I would start to keep your eyes out for ideas and start pinning or cutting out ideas to bring along to your floral appointment, Any colour samples or fabric also helps. Also, keep an open mind and look for flowers in season as these are always at their best quality and price. Above all, enjoy it! Flowers are amazing!
Thanks so much Kerry, we think flowers are amazing too! We're just in love with your studio and consultation room, and of course, your beautiful designs.

Hope you are enjoying this little glimmer of sunshine!Today, we bring to you a very special wedding as the Bride is one of Kerry's best friends, and Kerry was also bridesmaid, as well as the flower sheriff for the day! It was such a lovely change to be involved with the wedding from start to finish. The wonderful Becky and Neil of Butterworth photography captured the day beautifully and were brilliant on the day. It was also great to see Phil at Lafbery cars chauffeuring some of the bridesmaids to the wedding and also DJ Ferret of Promo disco services who made sure the dance floor was always full. Rose from Pink Cake Box created a lovely cake complete with figures of the Bride, Groom, Flowergirl and Jane's special horse! Hope you enjoy these images!
