This theme calls for dramatic flowers in a bright, rich colour palette. I adore proteas, ananas (pineapples) and strelitzias (bird of paradise). All of these have a presence that demand attention, especially as they're not normally seen at weddings. They have solid shapes so a little softening is needed when used in bouquets. Try surrounding these statement plants with delicate, exotic-looking blooms such as dendrobium orchids, gloriosa lilies, tuberosa and alstroemeria, all of which will give movement and also make great buttonholes.

Don't forget to add in tropical greenery such as palms, cheese plants, fatsias and philodendrons. These are all recognisable house plants that come from rainforests. Showstopping centrepieces can be achieved simply and cost-effectively with items such as gladioli and fatsia leaves in tall glass vases. Most importantly though, don't hold back go for bold and vibrant!
