Today is BLUE MONDAY. Apparently the day we are saddest as we now are in the throws of winter, Christmas is over and we are all getting our credit card bills etc and are coming to the realization we overspent during the festivities, oh yes and it's Monday!!
So to combat all this I thought I would share with you this beautifully pretty wedding from last May. The flowers were chosen by the bride, she knew exactly what she wanted - peony and roses. Fortunately May is a month when the beautiful peony is in season, always a plus with this temperamental flower.
The bridal bouquet was a stunning mix of pink peony, avalanche roses in pink and white, white hydrangeas, pink sweet peas and gyp.
The roses, peony and sweet peas are all scented so as well as it looking pretty the scent was divine.
The three bridesmaids carried a very simple but highly scented bouquet of mixed peonies.
Lovely bundles of ruffles.
All bouquet stems were bound with hessian
The three flower girls each wore a pretty wrist corsage of pink sweet peas. These were presented on an white ribbon to be tied on.
Again highly scented bundles of ruffles
One of the mums wore a peony and gyp buttonhole
Stems bound with twine
The groomsmen all wore pink roses with gyp
The other ladies wore a white rose with gyp and foliage
The groom wore a mix selection of flowers from the bridal bouquet
tied as a natural bunch rather than wired.
The page boy looked so cute with his very own spray rose and gyp buttonhole.
This is Part 1 of this wedding and part 2 will be on show tomorrow. Please make sure you check back in as this really was such a pretty set up at a fabulous venue.

*If you are looking to include the fabulous peony in your wedding the prime time for these flowers is May -July. You can get them either side of these dates and a small selection in the autumn BUT beware. Outside their season they are highly expensive and of poor quality (usually but not extensively) so to make the most of them choose your wedding date very carefully.
A good florist will be able to show you other flowers with similar style to enhance your bouquets and not break your budget.
