June wedding flowers
June wedding flowers are a delight for us here at Common Farm Flowers near Bruton in Somerset. They have a light freshness which I adore, and the scent of the sweet peas and the roses has both Sharon and I inhaling it like addicts, though of course there will be more tomorrow!
This bride and groom were clever with their budget. They booked the gorgeous Aldwick Farm venue on a vinyard near Blagdon lake in Somerset for a Friday, much cheaper than a Saturday booking. And their determination that their wedding should be beautiful, but not cost the earth, went as far as their flower choices too.
They had nine tables, so I made nine large posies for them, fat cushions of light flowers and foliage, all grown in the flower farm fields at Common Farm, and I put these posies in in square jars, and finished them with trails of double satin, cream ribbon. For the ceremony these posies were the pew ends, zigzagging up the aisle of chairs where the marriage would be celebrated. One spare posy was popped on the registrar's table. And other than the bride's bouquet, two bridesmaids posies, the buttonholes, and some wired single stems to be tucked into the bride's hair, that was it. The pew ends became the table centres, the venue is in beautiful countryside anyway and doesn't need masses of flowers to make it more beautiful, the wedding is a happy happy event, and I expect their special friends will be asked to take a posy each home as a thank you for helping and supporting the couple along their way.

And if you're free tomorrow I'm at the Bishop's Palace Garden Festival at Wells tomorrow, 10th June, giving a talk and demo at 1pm.
