BRITISH FLOWERS WEEK 2017 | Celebrating British Flowers & Flower Farmers | 19-25 June 2017


British Flowers Week kicks off today!

This is an annual celebration of hard working flower farmers and florists that grow and produce those fabulous British seasonal flowers that I consider worthy of gracing greener weddings that reflect my own passion for naturally beautiful flowers.

The ethos of these creative entrepreneurs is that they care deeply about the environment and are committed to conducting their businesses in harmony with nature. Although many are not certified, they tend to use organic growing practices integrating sustainability into every corner of their work and pouring their hearts into cultivating the finest flowers for your natural weddings.

These lovely people are dedicated to the seasonal flower movement and enthusiastically support each other to develop this growing trend choosing, like Green Union, to work in harmony with fellow entrepreneurs and the wider creative community.

That’s why we love them!

And here at Green Union we make a habit of supporting flower farmers and floral designers who make it their business to provide brides with locally grown seasonal wedding blooms.

You can find out more about these lovely wedding suppliers by going to our wedding directory.

I'll be posting an image every day this week to celebrate - so please dip in, or check my social platforms, and indulge in some total gorgeousness!

First up is that beautiful wedding bouquet above made by the lovely Bea of Botanika, a small independent floral design studio with a cutting garden based in Sussex. Bea loves to grow and create wedding flowers using natural elements, interesting textures and pleasing colour combinations that reflect the seasons.
