Favourite Natural Wedding Flowers: bouquets, buttonholes, flower crowns, wedding hair flowers, and floral arrangements

We hope you’re enjoying our Real Wedding Favourites mini series, looking back at some of the loveliest details from the weddings featured on our blog. If you’d like some inspiration do check out the series so far. From bride and groom wedding styles, to wedding ceremony and reception spaces. From beautiful wedding details to some of the most unique weddings we’ve featured.

Today we’re sharing our Favourite Natural Wedding Flowers. Gosh what a hard post this was to create! Narrowing down to just a handful of our favourites was incredibly difficult, because we love flowers. Hopefully this post will give you a taste of what kinds of British grown, seasonal wedding flower inspiration you can find on our blog.

Our Favourite Wedding Bouquets

A Bee-Friendly Wildflower Wedding Bouquet

Natural Wedding Flowers: A Bee-Friendly Wildflower Wedding Bouquet

Miriam was one of our TNWC Real Brides and I loved her passion for incorporating seasonal, locally-grown and bee-friendly blooms into her wedding day. Her wild summer bouquet has always stuck with me, it seems like a genuine representation of the ever-popular ‘just picked’ bouquet style.

It incorporates some really beautiful blooms – blue borage flowers, white cosmos, hot pink honeysuckle, yellow dill flowers, and delicate foxgloves. They all come together in this heavenly meadow-garden bouquet that truly captured the bee-friendly element that Miriam was passionate about.

Winter bride and groom // Cosy winter wedding at River Cottage // Larissa Joice Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

We might be headed into summer but this cosy winter wedding held at River Cottage in Devon reminds us of all that is great about a winter wedding done well. Louise and Andrew had an intimate wedding with just 50 of their friends and family, with excellent local food (obviously!) and seasonal touches that embraced the farm venue. I also particularly love the attention they put in for the babies and children at this wedding – some great ideas. Plus gorgeous photography from Larissa Joice who we’ve featured previously here.

Over to Louise to tell us more…

Bride and groom in a meadow - natural organic wedding inspiration // Jenny Owens Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

This spring photoshoot is full of natural organic wedding inspiration with hints of peach, pale blue and copper. The team were inspired by vintage reclamation and the organic and natural colours and textures of oxidised copper. From the exquisite handpainted botanical cakes to the vintage wedding dresses (the rose pink one!) and touches of foraged blossom, this photoshoot is brimming with inspiration.

Over to photographer Jenny Owens to tell us more…

Bride and groom in field of wildflowers // Stephen Duncan Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

What a lovely treat we have for you today – the elegant eco garden wedding of our colleague Joanna. She’s been busy writing up the beautiful real weddings we get sent to be featured, but today we are taking a look at her own stunning wedding.

Think bouquets of coral peonies and blue delphiniums, a riverside marquee, and a steel pan band for this elegant eco garden wedding. Lots of thought went into taking care of their guests, from an ice cream van to wood-fired pizzas in the evening. Together with their family and friends, Joanna and Dan put lots of love into their wedding, keeping it eco-friendly in the most elegant way.

Over to Joanna to tell us more about their beautiful and elegant eco garden wedding…

Outdoor summer wedding // Freckle Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

It certainly feels as though Spring has sprung, and what better way to celebrate but with a gloriously sunny, cheerful and laid back village wedding.

Charli and Sam’s special day has an authentically wholesome vibe to it. Just looking at these beautiful photographs by Freckle Photography you get the sense that their day was true to them. While their ‘official’ nuptials  took place in the edifying surrounds of historical Bath, their outdoor ceremony and marquee celebrations were set in the village Charli grew up in.

The couple’s decisions typify the quintessential natural English wedding: hay bales, locally sourced wildflowers and homemade bunting, and it really is lovely. Emma of Freckle Photography, one of our recommended suppliers, has captured the happiness of their day perfectly. Let’s chat to bride Charli to find out more…

Winter brides may feel like they are missing out on the wide selection of flowers that are available throughout the warmer months. However with our hellebore wedding flower ideas we’re going to show there are plenty of beautiful winter blooms.

In bloom through winter into early spring, hellebores are available in a plethora of shades and hues. Making them the perfect flower to fit with most colour themes.
