As it’s British Flowers Week, we thought it would be the perfect time to share another feature in our ‘an ode to’ floral series, and this time it’s the turn of a quintessential British summer flower: the fabulously fragrant sweet pea. When we moved into our first house, my mum gave us a pot of sweet pea seedlings she had nurtured from a packet seeds and we had flowers all summer long. The more we picked, the more they kept on blooming and we ended up with flowers to decorate every room. Now, even if we grow nothing else, (which […]

Sometimes I get the urge to do a whole blog post dedicated to one particular flower.  Usually I’ve seen something that inspires me and off I head into the internet in search of inspiration on that particularly bloom.  I’ve previously done ‘an ode to violets’ and ‘an ode to old-fashioned roses’ and just last week ‘an ode to snake’s head fritillary’ and was pleasantly surprised by the ideas I found. Today I want to share a seasonal ode to springtime blossom.  The few fruit trees that I have in my garden (cherry, apple, and crab apple) have made my garden […]

Here at The Natural Wedding Company I love to promote seasonality, and to encourage and inspire couples to choose to plan their weddings fitting in with the season whether that be flowers, food, or decorations.  Choosing seasonal blooms for your wedding flowers is one way to reduce the environmental impact of your big day (rather than imported flowers), as well as reflecting the beautiful and varied times of year. Recently on my Facebook feed I’ve been seeing one particular spring flower popping up in bouquets from various TNWC flower businesses – the snake’s head fritillary.  This very dainty bell like […]

Last week Mr Rigg and I spent a week away in the Perigord region of France, staying in a rustic little gite on a goat farm.  One of my enduring memories from our holiday is of beautiful, big blousy roses clambering everywhere in all shades of pink and peach. I thought it would be nice to showcase some rose inspiration for weddings evoked by our trip, so I have been busy scouring the internet to bring your my favourites. I don’t think of myself as a huge rose fan, probably because I immediately think of those tightly closed bud roses […]

Ever since Rachel from Catkin Flowers planted a seed in my head about violets being in season in April I have wanted to do a blog post on them.  It seems more appropriate than ever because they are poking out their pretty faces all over my garden at the moment. I’m not sure that violets are big enough to make a bridal bouquet, but there are other lovely ideas I came across, and I’ve included a couple of viola/heartsease images because I couldn’t find a tremendous amount of violet ideas (I’m also quite picky with what I choose to share […]

Today’s romantic vintage wedding inspiration comes via a beautiful photoshoot from Mademoiselle Fee. Some of my favourite wedding photoshoots have been sent to us from Stefanie at Mademoiselle Fee (you can see them here and here) and they always have a beautiful back story. The raspberry red wedding florals, a wedding dress inspired by Romanian fairytales, and a romantic dessert table are all set against the backdrop of a 14th Century watermill. So many lovely details and ideas to inspire you for your own wedding if you are wanting a romantic and vintage feel. Austrian based stylist Stefanie told me about this […]

Today’s modern botanical vegan wedding inspiration shoot aims to illustrate that ‘having a vegan wedding does not mean a bride wearing a bag for a dress.’ According to the Vegan Society veganism has grown 350% in the last ten years. It is then great to see that industries such as the wedding industry are starting to embrace the trend which goes hand in hand with eco-friendly values. As we very well know choosing eco-friendly doesn’t mean you need to compromise on style. The same can now be said for a vegan wedding. Hellbunt Events the team behind the concept and styling have created such […]
