One of my Favourite Finds recently is this Etsy shop who are creating these beautiful wedding items from biodegradable birch bark. There is a wonderful selection of cake toppers (like these cheerful little birds above), cupcake toppers and mini flags, birch bark confetti in the shape of leaves or hearts, and even a cute little ring bearers pillow.
A wedding is not a wedding without a confetti toss, and I’m a firm advocate of naturally produced petal confetti. The Natural Confetti Company are offering our lovely bride- and grooms-to-be a fantastic offer on their beautiful natural Delphinium confetti.
There are two great options to choose from, for confetti cones and organza bags, both exclusive to readers of The Natural Wedding Company. With every 10 cones of natural Delphinium confetti ordered you will receive an additional 5 cones free, or with every 10 small organza bags of natural Delphinium confetti ordered you will receive an additional 7 bags free.
So rather than showering yourself with mass produced confetti, get your guests to throw handfuls of this beautiful, English grown, natural petal confetti.
Bespoke Confetti grow English flowers on their farm in Devon that they they pick by hand and dry the petals to create a stunning selection of confetti. To celebrate our 5th birthday, Bespoke Confetti have some exclusive special offers available with great savings for our readers.
They have two sizes of natural willow trugs available (large and small) that come with handmade paper cones and confetti in a choice of mixes – two vintage inspired mixes – lilac, and pink – or a bespoke mix of your choice. Check out the Bespoke Confetti website for some alternative ideas for using confetti.
I feel very lucky to be able to share today’s wedding with you all – the wedding took place at St Michael De Rupe Church on the top of Brentor in Devon. Not only is this tiny, windswept church one of the highest and smallest in England but it’s also very close to my heart.
My granny grew up on a farm in Brentor village that sits beneath this ancient hill. A large part of my family come from this part of Devon, I have ridden across Blackdown (the surrounding moors) throughout my childhood, and my great granny had her 90th birthday on Brentor.
So before I get carried away with my family history, this is a special place to me – so a big thank you to photographer Sarah Falugo of Green Photographic for letting me feature this wedding.
I have been inspired by some of the creative and alternative ideas they have for using natural petal confetti, and knew I had to share them with you.
Natural petal confetti scattered around your table centrepieces – perfect for a vintage wedding
Natural petal confetti in paper cones at the entrance to the church – perfect for a country wedding
Dried flower heads to adorn your flowergirls or bridesmaids hair – perfect for a rustic wedding
One of our listed businesses, Shropshire Petals, got in contact to tell us about a fab new product they offer. Here’s a little more about them and an exclusive offer.
Shropshire Petals grow biodegradable natural petal confetti. Their Shropshire farm has fields upon fields of delphiniums. To create the perfect petals all flowers are grown with careful love and attention.
Petals are delicately handpicked, eco-friendly and 100% natural. Together with natural petal confetti, Shropshire Petals also offer wheat sheaves and lavender bundles – how gorgeous would these look at a late summer or early autumn wedding…
