I absolutely love it when rosemary is in flower, with those tiny pale blue flowers it takes on a new dimension to its very green version that we mainly see and associate with it here in England. We have featured rosemary and other herbs in abundance here on the blog because they have so many lovely qualities – their fragrance being number one in my opinion.

This simple white wedding cake decorated with flowering rosemary is a wonderful example of how you can achieve a pretty and less conventional look without spending lots of money or time. Invest in a great quality wedding cake, made from organic and fair trade ingredients, and then just decorate it simply with naturally grown herbs.

If you are wanting to create a cohesive look, where your bouquet or your bridesmaids bouquet tied in with other details such as the cake, then here is a truly rustic herbal bouquet for inspiration. Completely comprised of herbs and nothing else, I can spot bay, thyme, sage and lavender amongst the rosemary, and tied with hessian and twine. For me it has an almost Medieval feel to it, or at least this is what I imagine Medieval brides might have carried on their wedding day.

We’ve also got ideas here for herbal buttonholes if you’d like to extend the touches of herbs to your groom and his groomsmen.
