Meadow flowers and real confetti

I think the idea of skipping through meadows picking wildflowers on the wedding morning may have been a bit of a pipe dream! So the idea of Sweet Loving Flowers sounds like a good compromise to me (thanks for the tip, Lula!). It's a small company run by a husband-and-wife duo that grows pretty meadow flowers in an organic plot in Wales. The field was once grazed by sheep and is now blooming with flowers and wildlife. They also provide simple bouquets that have a lovely thrown-together look 

And then my colleague Lucy sent me a link to Confetti Direct, a small company that grows wild flowers, roses and delphiniums for real confetti. Petals are handpicked and packed on the farm at Wyke Manor in Worcestershire, and they also provide paper cones and baskets for display. The fields are covered in a blanket of colour when the flowers are in full bloom… what a beautiful place to live and work:
