British Flower Week
We are delighted, this month, to be joining in with British Flower Week which is a nationwide campaign organised by New Covent Garden Market to support and promote British flowers and foliage. So, for this months look at British flowers for weddings in June we thought we would do something extra special to celebrate this great event!
Flowers for Weddings in June
As the rhododendrons in our woodland garden are still looking magnificent, together with our in-house florist Penny we decided to use this area as our backdrop. Our wonderful woodland dining table was dressed with a stunning display of lady’s mantle, alliums (stipitatum), poppies (Patty’s Plum) and nepeta. These flowers were used again to create an elegant vase arrangement in our circle garden. We finished the look with scrumptious blueberry cakes, meringues and a glass of fizz – perfect for an afternoon tea Wedding celebration on a warm day in June!
All the flowers and foliage used were grown in our gardens and we hope the images give a feel for the colourful and beautiful displays which can be achieved using locally grown, seasonal blooms.
