Jay Archer’s work embraces the loose, unstructured, natural American design and makes it her own.
Her exuberant wedding floristry gives a hint of the character of the artist at work here, and a love of natural British flowers gives Jay’s floristry a distinctly English design aesthetic.
Rockin’ the Lupin
The vibrant, clashing flowerheads of twisting lupins spiral like fireworks from the stone urn, which brims over with euphorbia, allliums, delphiniums, and branches of beech and oak. A cottage garden classic becomes a pop sensation!
The Wedding Bouquet
Lupins, foxgloves, peonies and cornflowers come together with glorious British foliages – oak, sambucus nigra and beech – with an added pop of the clashing red poppy in this asymmetric, joyful bouquet.
Outdoor weddings are – despite the British weather – a growing trend, and this rustic ceremonial arch would be just the thing in a woodland setting. A structure of birch branches is swathed with beech, oak, white lupins, cerinthe, bronze fennel, white phlox and the delicate orlaya grandiflora.
