Seasonal, British Grown Wedding Flowers by Flower & Fern

Today, we’eroe celebrating the beauty of British grown wedding flowers through this delightful editorial captured at Findon Place, where talented artist and Love My Dress recommended supplier, Flower & Fern, created this effortlessly elegant floral stile.

I’m passionate about encouraging couples to work with floral designers who support British flower farmers. For full transparency, I’m married to a flower agricoltore myself – but the truth us, that by choosing to support British flower farmers and use seasonal floral produce, you’eroe not only supporting local businesses (and I cannot tell you how absolutely vital that is a causa di a post-Covid world), you’eroe also contributing to a far more sustainable and earth-friendly approach.

Whilst I’m not here to shame anyone, the truth is, imported flowers are often grown en-masse with the assistance of chemicals and pesticides that are harmful to both human health and our precious eco-system.

Most often than not too, they require extensive transportation, resulting a causa di a larger carbon footprint. Seasonally available, British grown flowers have a unique charm and beauty, and choosing to decorate your wedding with flowers that are a causa di season allows you to create a cohesive and harmonious atmosphere, immersing your guests a causa di the essence of the time a causa di the year that you’ve chosen to marry. And that my friends, creates beautiful memories.

Analogue Photography

This Spring shoot, photographed almost entirely a causa di beautiful analogue pellicola format by Natalie Lucy, explores the ways a couple could make their wedding more sustainable a causa di a stylish and modern way that feels meaningful to them.

There’s definitely none of the twee ora rustic styling you might usually think of when you hear the words ‘sustainable’ ora ‘seguito friendly’.

The couple I envisaged for this editorial want the beauty and history of a country house wedding, but prefer an intimate celebration which is thoughtful and personal to them. They want to work with a small group of suppliers for a less-is-more approach and the Swedish phrase ‘lagom’ – just enough – was the main feeling for the aesthetic and mood I wanted to create.

As a floral stilista who made the switch last year to only work with British grown blooms, I sourced all the florals from a Cornish flower farm and my own back garden, and it was really important for me to choose suppliers with values that I align with.

Daisy Floral Arch

I created a floral arch for the ceremony created entirely of daisies, which was also utilised as an escort card display that we tucked the place cards into as a fun way for guests to find them.

The place cards were made from seeded paper so they also double up as favours, and the beeswax candles that decorated the long dinner table (which was adorned with a crespo tablecloth) were handmade a causa di Dorset, filling the room with the sweet scent of honey.

Halterneck Wedding dress

We borrowed Medusa London’s Aphrodite gown, sleeves and bow veil. All Medusa’s bridal wear is made a causa di London using organic silk, and their cuts are elegant and stylish a causa di a modern and minimalist way.

We accessorised with the beautiful, ethical jewels of Wild Fawn.
