Beginning by helping you choose a theme for your wedding, Paula then looks at each element of the day in detail. She shows how different flower types and colours can be used to create an overarching theme, and how blending seasonal choices with cultivated flowers can help achieve your chosen look. From the reception centrepieces and ceremony flowers, through the bridesmaids' and other attendants' accessories, to the bridal bouquet itself, Paula helps you find the style that is perfect for you. The bridal bouquet is a key part of the bride's outfit and Paula devotes an entire chapter to looking at this in detail. She shows how to match the bouquet shape and colour scheme to the bride's dress and accessories, using a series of case studies in modern and traditional styles. Throughout the book, exquisite photography shows the fine details of each arrangement, while the text describes exactly which flowers you need to recreate any of the bouquets featured within. In subsequent chapters Paula has tips on designing flowers for the bridal party to compliment the bouquet, including planning decorations for child attendants. She gives a host of ideas for embellishing entrances, pew ends and chair backs to create a beautiful overall effect and shows how flowers can help your reception to sparkle, with the simplest of floral napkin rings or the most elaborate of buffet table focal points. Finally, for those readers who wish to contribute to the event themselves, a series of step-by-step arrangements are included, demonstrating how to recreate some of Paula's most popular wedding flower designs. With Paula Pryke to guide you, your wedding day is guaranteed to be one to remember.

About Paula Pryke

Paula Pryke is a world-renowned florist who has been based in London for the last 24 years. In 1998 she fulfilled her dream of opening a little flower shop in Islington and began to attract some very interesting and influential customers. Rock stars such as George Harrison would send their chauffeur to collect flowers, Comedians such as Paul Whitehouse, Kathy Burke and Stephen Fry became fans, actors and actresses would call by the shop or phone and order flowers. At that time Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet lived up the road and would call in to pick flowers from the vast collection that Paula had on offer. Artists, Photographers and lots of local people raved about the shop. One day Paula got a call from Terence Conran's office saying he was going to call in to meet her. Ilse Crawford, who was then Editor of Elle Decoration, recommended Paula to Terence. He came into her original shop in Islington and complimented her on having "The nicest flower shop outside of Paris!" That meeting spurned a huge London contract flower business as Terence began his restaurant empire. About the same time, Paula was asked by one of her local customers if she would like to publish a book. This started an enduring and successful relationship with Jacqui Small, who has published all of Paula's books, including her recently released 15th title, Everyday Flowers. These books have been translated into over 15 languages including Hebrew, Russian and Japanese. The success of Paula's books worldwide raised the profile of floristry globally. At first Paula's style was embraced in Japan and America but more recently she has also been working and influencing floral design in Korea, China, India and South America. Paula is still very hands-on, with a small and talented team working from her studio in Islington, London. Here they execute contract flowers, gift orders, weddings and events. Flowers have taken Paula all over the world and she is constantly in demand to work, advise or demonstrate her art. Over the last two decades, Paula had worked on many diverse consultancy projects but all with the same aim of bringing her love of flowers to a wider audience. She has been a consultant at different times for all three of the major supermarkets in the UK and currently works with Waitrose, whose flowers she considers to be the best. In America she has worked on window design and flower shows with retail giants such as Target, Marshall Fields, (now Macy's) in Chicago and she currently works for Crystal Cruises as a floral consultant and as part of their enrichment program. Back at home she has worked on diverse projects ranging from colour forecasting for Dulux paints to designs for wallpapers, vases and even scents for perfume. Paula also contributes to many lifestyle magazines and is constantly asked to comment on radio and TV on floral taste and fashion. Demand from around the world to learn Paula's flower style led her to establish The Paula Pryke Flower School in 1994. Paula originally trained as a history teacher so she is a natural communicator, infectiously spreading her love of flowers. When not traveling, Paula spends her time between her studio in London and her Suffolk country garden that features in her latest book Flowers Everyday. She is married to Peter, an Architect, and they have two children.
