I’m often asked for recommendations on wedding hair accessories, and with a personal love for styling hair and beautiful accessories I’m always on the look out for unique, beautiful pieces.
I stumbled across @augustaflorals on Instagram last year and instantly fell in love with her work.
Augusta is a floral design artist based in London, and floral hair combs are a small part of what she does.
Augusta draws her inspiration from nature and it’s changing season to create abundant, luxurious and textually inspired arrangements. Not only for weddings, but for any celebration.
From Bridal bouquets and table arrangements to flower walls or hair combs, Augusta will create a bespoke arrangement to leave lasting memories.
With the wedding season (and festival season!) fast approaching Augusta kindly gifted me some beautiful floral combs, so I could create some looks to show you.
I wasn’t sure what would arrive for me to work with, but when Augusta’s fresh flower combs arrived via post I was amazed. The blooms had been sent in beautiful rustic boxes, complete with ribbon and ‘Augusta Floral’ personalised stationary. From beautifully scented freesia’s, to a rustic style dried wheat mix, I had been sent 3 unique pieces.
The Eucalyptus & Freesia Duo
The most daintiest of the 3, this would be beautiful for bridesmaids and flower girls. I feel the summery colours and uplifting eucalyptus scent would also be great for a festival, intertwined with knots and braids. Starting from £12 these combs are an affordable way to give your hair a unique finished look.
Dried Wheat and Lisianthus on a Bed of Foliage
The dried wheat gives this piece a more relaxed feel. This would be perfect for a rustic wedding or a bride with a boho style. If it was me, I’d have this for my bridesmaids and I’d get a bigger version for myself!
Eucalyptus, Lisianthus, Heavy Fragrant Freesia Combined with Foliage
The biggest of the 3 but so lightweight and easy to work with. The comb fitted perfectly with all the styles I tried and didn’t feel heavy.
I love how all pieces can be tailor made to fit a colour scheme and these pink freesias would look beautiful on a bride with a romantic, fairy tale theme.
Augusta was one of the first people I contacted when starting my blog. I had nothing to show her, only my work on instagram. Not only did she put her trust in me - a stranger - she took the time to make these pieces and sent them to me, next day delivery to ensure they arrived fresh. I was treated like a client, so I will always highly recommend her.
