The Wedding Diary … Country Flowers
Hooray, I’ve found my ‘Perfect Shoes’ and I’m feeling ever so slightly Carey Bradshaw at the moment as I have to keep having a peek in the box.
That’s not a clue by the way for those that keep asking!
Next to arrange were the flowers, I knew exactly what I wanted but were they even in season, could the florist even get them. My dream flowers would have been from the hedgerows but having a September wedding heading into autumn kind of meant there would be little if nothing to pick. So I put my list together. Cow Parsley was a must, David Austin Blush full roses and any vintage looking roses, White Hydrangea, Lavender, Mint, Rosemary, Senecio or Eucalyptus & Gypsophila of course.
I’ve become a real hoarder for the wedding, collecting jam jars and getting friends and family to do the same. All the tables will be scattered with a wonderful mix of pretty jars with random flowers and herbs. The church flowers I must confess are still a gem of an idea but I plan to use lots of Gypsophila, silver birch branches, white hydrangea again and then lots of candles. But we’ll see.
So the to do list is getting ticked off and I do believe I’ve started to drive the girls in the studio slightly mad with my wedding banter!
