orange & pink wedding flowers, recycled


flowers ranunculus anemone rose orange pink 001


A friend of mine got married recently in a very last minute, low-key ceremony. I wasn't even sure if she would have flowers, so I took it upon myself to grab a handful on my way to the wedding just in case. The ceremony was really sweet and I am very happy for the loving couple. As it turned out she had a bouquet ready, so I just took these home when it was all over (what can I say? I wasn't just going to leave them there!) 
 
The ranunculus here are so stunning in tropical fruity colours with the green centres — I love them. Also included: a few stems of pink anemones, peach hyacinth, roses (err... milva maybe? I am blanking on the name) and eucalyptus. It was a small, bright and fragrant bouquet and I enjoyed having it greatly. People should get married more often — I make a great witness! (It was my fourth time being an official witness to a wedding, and my third time having next to no idea going into the wedding that I would be acting as witness).

Oh I just want to clarify for the sake of my own ego that I literally grabbed these flowers and tied them — I was in and out in less than five minutes. I do realize it's not a proper wedding bouquet. (plus I was on a budget!)
