Written by Emma Hla
Who’s getting married in May…?

As we’re on the cusp of summer think bold, bright and just bloomin’ gorgeous!

Notes from Amber

May is a month overflowing with colour; whether it’s bold and brash or stylish and restrained, tulips come in a multitude of colours, shapes and varieties – my personal favourite are the flamboyant parrot tulips with their crumpled petals and striking colour combinations.

I also have a soft spot for Icelandic poppies, in fact so struck was I with the beauty of these stunning blooms that I have started growing them in our cutting garden for the first time this year. With colours ranging from the palest ivory through apricot, lemon and pink to the brightest and most gorgeous orange any Spring bride looking for colour in their wedding flowers and wanting something a little different should definitely consider these striking beauties.

Finally, given how mild this winter has been I feel we are likely to be blessed with English peonies later this month. Coral Charm (more pink than coral) is one of my absolute favourites but there are some stunners out there including shades of pink from pale to cerise, bright yellows and deep reds so if you are getting married this month and love peonies you’ll be in luck!

So what takes your fancy…?

For me, I think it would have to be the luscious promise of peonies… I desperately wanted these for my own wedding flowers but alas I picked the wrong month to marry!

If you have your heart set on a particular flower do make sure it’s in season folks!

This is where these fab pinnable floral highlights come in handy…

Thanks again to Amber, do hop over to her little corner of this online world – it’s very, very pretty.

Lots of love…
