Lovely lisianthus

April 5, 2011

My sister Louise has always been missing the bride gene. She got married when 7 months pregnant and had an intimate civil ceremony followed by a meal at one of our favourite hotels in the Lake District (the wonderful Punchbowl Inn). The day was very low-key and relaxed – just the way she wanted it. However, I was determined she should have some flowers and surprised her on the morning of the wedding with a pretty purple bouquet containing violet lisianthus, white roses and lavender freesias. No bride, no matter how laid-back, should be without a posy of some kind and my sister was thrilled with hers. By the way, lisianthus are an inexpensive choice for wedding flowers and come in white, green and lovely shades or purple. They’re also a great alternative to roses if you’re on a budget. Louise’s bouquet cost about £35 from The Flower Shop in Ambleside.

  1. Beautiful!!
    Purple seems to be the colour every bride is asking for this year- that vibrant violet lisianthus is perfect against the soft lilac tone of the freesia to create a perfect purple posy!! xx
