Exclusive handcrafted wedding bouquets to have and to hold… forever
Pauline Forde specialises in luxury high end bespoke bridal bouquets. Her signature designs have become instantly recognisable globally and loved by brides to be who want something different.
Trained as a traditional florist, her vision was to create an everlasting bouquet that would be exclusive to each bride and serve as a beautiful keepsake to have and to hold long after their wedding day! Choosing only the finest of fabrics, lace and jewels each bouquet is unique and designed to be an extension of the bridal gown. The colour of the handmade roses are chosen to ensure a perfect match with the brides dress, creating a look of timeless elegance and sophistication.
Each bouquet is a truly unique piece designed to last a lifetime and to be passed down through generations.
All Pauline’s designs are made by hand at her studio in Kildare, Ireland.
