In his hand tied wedding bouquet design David uses large yellow Freesias. Recently the Pantone Color Institute declared this ‘PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow’ as one of the trend colours for 2017. They describe the colour as “sparkles with heat and vitality. Inviting us into its instant warmth, this joyful yellow shade takes us to a destination marked by enthusiasm, good cheer and sunny days.” If that doesn’t say ‘wedding’, what does?
