It is lovely to be able to share some inspiration from one of the businesses listed on The Natural Wedding Company directory this afternoon. This beautiful spring arrangement of white tulips and branches of blossom was put together by the lovely Green and Gorgeous, and I think just captures this time of year.
If I was getting married now, I would have jugs of these white tulips and blossom everywhere – such a simple combination but artfully arranged by Green and Gorgeous – and all seasonal and English grown, can you really get any better than that?
I’m all for homemade wedding cakes – whether made by the bride, family, friends or neighbours. So this fabulous tiered sponge wedding cake is right up my street – if not homemade it looks like it could be, and I love that there’s no fussy icing, just some gorgeous early spring flowers – tiny yellow narcissi and anemones in jewel shades.
I have been trying to decide what I want my bouquet tied with. Perhaps an offcut of lace from my dress? Or simple and earthy raffia? I don’t want anything too fussy or elegant – something soft and old-fashioned. When I came across this beautiful spring bouquet of pastel shades simply tied up with different coloured ribbons I was in love! It has been quickly emailed off to the lady doing my flowers and she’s off to find some nice ribbon to compliment my bouquet. Image: Tec Petaja via Once WedRead more
Green and Gorgeous recently ran a hen party workshop for a bride who has ordered buckets of flowers to arrange herself for her April wedding. The bride and her bridesmaids spent a fun and relaxed day creating spring posies, flowers in a tea cup and a corsage.
Spring flowers included anemones, tulips, muscari and scented narcissi – aren’t they gorgeous in those vintage tea cups! Check out Green and Gorgeous for their ‘Bouquets and Buckets’ service if you’re a bride on a budget. I’m booked onto one of their flower arranging courses in April with my mom and can’t wait!

I’m going to let the images here speak for themselves, but on seeing this beautiful bouquet on Carrie Patterson‘s wedding photography blog I just had to share with you some of the lovely images I have that showcase seasonal, garden-grown blooms. These images just show how much fun an eclectic bunch of locally grown flowers can be, and hopefully will help convince you to choose seasonally for your wedding…if you need any convincing after these pretty pictures!
