Seasonal spring bouquets of British grown daffodils, narcissi and purple-pink blushed tulips
One of my favourite parts of my job is browsing the websites of the wedding suppliers we list in the directory to see what new things they’ve been busy creating, making, or planning. There are always some hidden gems to discover, and then I get to share them with you!
Recently I came across these beautiful seasonal spring bouquets for a daffodil inspired wedding – now what could be more appropriate to share at this time of year, as all around us daffodil buds are plumping up ready to burst open and cheer us all up with their sunny yellow faces?
These bouquets were created by Melinda at Little Strode Flower Farm, and she grew all the daffodils and narcissi on her smallholding in Dorset for this spring wedding. In addition to daffodils and narcissi, the brides bouquet also contained tulips and some mustard coloured ranunculus, and a couple of stems of clematis wound through it.
“I think it’s amazing how stunning and effective the humble daffodil, such a common flower in spring, can be. And then if you combine another fairly common spring flower – the tulip – it ramps it up a gear again. I love the yellow with the hot pink!” I completely agree Melinda!
I truly love seeing seasonal bouquets from brides who have embraced the time of year they have chosen to marry in, and always feel a little sad when I see a beautiful bouquet of seasonal flowers and then some too-perfect roses that have crept in. Be confident in those British grown blooms that are naturally flowering at the time of year when you get hitched, they really are something special.
