The Hitched wedding Trend report for 2024 has been released – I know you were all on the edge of your seats too, and what can I say I AM EXCITED! When it comes to luxury wedding flowers, I love to see how we can take new ideas, and interweave your florals alongside to create a seamless day, perfect for you.
I’ll pop the link at the bottom for you to have a good old nose through but here’s my favourite takeaways…
Firstly let’s kick off with celebrant led ceremonies. I’ve come across so many wonderful celebrants recently, and love how they make the ceremony so personal to you – no more 10 minute cookie cutter ceremony scripts, and just a true reflection of a couple, their history, and their future!
Celebrant led ceremonies also open up many options for ceremony spaces, and in turn lot’s more options for ceremony flowers – anyone for an outdoor aisle laden with flower clouds?!
Next up is film wedding photography which I touched on in my last email – what.a.vibe! There’s just such a rich and everlasting quality comes across in film, that we sometimes miss with digital photography. Such a great idea to have a few film shots to treasure, and the depth film gives to the wedding flowers is just so bloody romantic!

Another comeback I’m loving is wedding veils – I mean what better way to feel extravagant, beautiful and bring that luxury vibe than with a cathedral length veil – and just picture the photos with a big, overstated bouquet and a long flowing veil.
Lastly, and definitely not least, in fact maybe my favourite trend highlighted is….*drum roll* … the wedding saxophonist. Bringing music, dancing and joy into ceremonies, receptions and parties, with unquestionable class and flexibility – and an array of musical genres, there’s nothing better than live music (IMO) to create those epic memories that will last a lifetime!
Nothing was highlighted in this report regarding wedding floral trends for 2024, but I would love to see big installations and statement pieces, perhaps with more non uniform and asymmetrical shapes. As always I would love to see a focus on utilising sustainable seasonal flowers – perhaps not even limited to flowers, but also herbs, succulents, vines, but always high impact adding drama and luxury!
What would you like to see in 2024?
