Something unusual a Glamelia Rose

This style of bouquet is also known as glamelia or composite rose bouquet, they were very popular in the 40s and 50s.  The bouquet is essentially one large flower assembled from the petals of around 20 roses.  It is a labour intensive method and is definitely a task for a skilled florist.  Hundreds of petals are painstakingly attached one by one.

This recent Glamelia rose was designed to compliment the bridal gown which also had large appliqued flowers.  Our bride wanted a simple and unique design.  We used hydrangea to back the rose and this also co-ordinated nicely with the bridesmaid’s bouquets of hydrangea and roses.
