There have also been lots of Open Gardens. Everyone works so hard to get their gardens in order and speak to their visitors with such passion about their designs and planting schemes. There are some real treasures to be seen.
Visiting Helmingham Hall for the first time on what must have been one of the warmest days so far. What a beautiful place that is. Worth a visit. If you are looking for Wedding Flowers that will be in season for your day then this would be one of the places to go. Beautiful flowers and luscious foliage.
And of course, The Wedding! Keenly anticipating what flowers and foliage were going to be used and in all honesty was not disappointed. Fresh, zingy, clean palette. Perfectly sized bouquets. Elegant. The veil moment!! Very romantic.
If you are planning flowers for your wedding - last minute this year or in the future this is a great time to visit your local garden centre to see what is in bloom. Buy a good quality Bridal Magazine. Choose your dress first. Bridesmaids second then think about colour of flowers. However if flowers are your thing - work round them. Be sure to keep your florist informed of colour choices - a year down the line the original bridesmaid dress choice might have changed.
Wedding Flowers magazine is always good for palette choices.
Enjoy the journey.
