A woodland foraged bouquet for a casual country wedding

Firstly, apologies for being late with my monthly creative post – I have been a bit wrapped up in birthdays and my garden.  However, I knew exactly what I wanted to create for the post – a beautiful woodland and hedgerow inspired bouquet that would look lovely for a casual country wedding.

Made from a simple combination of three plants that can be found in abundance in our woodlands, hedgerows and fields at this time of year, this bunch would look beautiful tied up with rafia or displayed as a table centrepiece in a vintage jug or jar.

Floral ingredients

I used a mixture of cow parsley:

Wild flowers arranged in a vintage jug

There was no great skill or care to arranging these foraged woodland flowers, I simply found a nice vintage jug and added them. I think that’s the joy of wild flowers and foraged items, they naturally look beautiful however you arrange them.

Please make sure that if you are foraging for wild flowers and other plants that you follow your local laws. Not all wild flowers should be picked and some are protected, others can be harmful or poisonous.

If you’d like to have a wildflower wedding, why not check out the florists and flower growers in the Flowers category of our eco wedding directory.
