My first fully grown wedding. Quendon Hall, 1st June 2023

June has brought so much abundance with both physical flowers and the opportunities that have come my way. Requests have come in that I would never have expected and taken me deeper on my flower journey, my heart feels so full from all of it.

Let’s start the month at the very beginning with this gorgeous wedding.

I had been working on this wedding with the lovely Bride since my very first flower growing year. Christine came to me as she wanted locally grown, seasonal Jane Austin inspired flowers that were full of fragrance and romance. She was talking my language! I’ll always be so grateful she took a chance on my fledgling business and over the next summer I carefully grew the flowers that provided the seed for so much of what I used on her wedding day.

As a fairly new grower I based my plans on what was in flower the previous years, however our extremely cold spring meant the blooms I was depending on were at least two to three weeks behind. Lucky my Mum’s garden is a little warmer than mine and was able to help fill in the gaps – thanks mum. One thing I tell all the brides I work with is you can’t predict exactly what will flower at the time of the wedding and you have to be open minded to what will appear. This was something I had to really lean into and learn myself. Some of the foliage I had planned on using just wouldn’t grow but it was the year of the magical foxglove and I used it on all the tables for a fairy like feel along with jam jars full of mint, parsley, tulips (wasn’t expecting them), strawberry leaf, roses, anemones, sweet rocket and so much more.

Quendon Hall was a really gorgeous venue to work in. The grounds are stunning and Christine and I felt it only needed a light floral touch to finish the room off. We wanted it to feel it had just come from a garden, which it did! I worked to a light spring palette of soft yellows and china blues with a touch of foxglove purple  in the centre table of the tables. The groom had kindly made log slices for the main vases and Christine decorated over 40 jars with jute ribbon. I’m so proud of how it all came together, the bouquets were simple posies and when I saw them in their final destination alongside the beautiful bride, I couldn’t help but cry (can’t wait to see those photos!).

I would have liked to take a few more photos but the guests were arriving and I needed to get my buckets out the way! I have a selection today that I took along the way and really hope they inspire you to use British flowers at your wedding. My books are open, so if you are looking for anything from a bucket of flowers to DIY yourself or the full flourish take a look at my dedicated weddings page and get in touch as I’d love to make your wedding beautiful.
