Romantic white wedding cake with white flowers and mint

Not quite wanting to give in to the colourful wedding cakes that remind us of summer, but at the same time wanting to bring a little spring cheer, I’ve chosen this romantic white wedding cake for today’s Cake Love feature.

With it’s pretty selection of white and cream blooms and dotted with sprigs of green mint, it had just the right amount of the hopefulness of warmer days, whilst being quite subtle and soft in its appearance.  I am a huge fan of herbs being used for weddings, both incorporated into bouquets, buttonholes and table arrangements, and as well as decorating cakes, drinks and other edibles.

Jam jars of mint, flowering chives, and cornflowers

Ok.  So the sun is out.  It’s been out for two days now, and I have given into the dreams and whims that spring, and eventually summer might be on its way.  Of course, they are always ‘on their way’ but on sunny winter days like these it is a lovely reminder.

So bursting out of all the beautiful winter wedding inspiration I have shared over the past few months, is a glimmer of late spring/early summer.  These little jam jars filled with herbs (mint, oregano, flowering chives) and those gorgeous blue cornflowers might well have been snapped on a farmers market stall, but this is exactly the kind of look I love to steal for weddings.

Don’t you think they are just as pretty as anything over-the-top and extremely grand?  Certainly I think so, and I have a feeling that if you’re here on my blog you probably like a similar down-to-earth, relaxed and natural style.  This image makes me want to sip homemade lemonade in the garden and dig great beds of lush herbs and cornflowers with which I can fill jam jars all summer long.

I thought it might be nice to do a round-up of what some of the lovely businesses listed on the directory have been up to recently.  So I’ve had a snoop round their blogs and decided I would feature some seasonal flower photos, for the following reasons:

  • I just can’t get enough of English flowers at the moment (probably spurred on by the buckets of gorgeous flowers I had to arrange for my wedding)
  • They are always such a positive and beautiful reflection of our seasonal countryside

Charlie Ryrie from The Cut Flower Garden has been creating floral wonders such as this stunning globe of flowers for a wedding recently…

And arranging flowers for this wedding in vintage style jugs and jam jars…

Jo and Rachel over at Green and Gorgeous created this stunning (and pretty fabulous, don’t you think!) summer collar for one of their dogs.

It’s made from blue cornflowers and apple mint – I think this could be the new must-have item for anyone incorporating their dog into their wedding…
