April Wedding Flowers

April is a beautiful month to get married in Wales, with Spring marking the start of the Welsh fresh flower season. Tulips, Anemones, Ranunculus, Geum, blossom and Narcissi in a huge range of pastel and jewel colours mean that there is no limitation to the choice of pallet.

The Inspiration for these wedding flowers was all about mixing both fresh and dried, something that has become really popular over recent years. For the bouquet itself we used dried Hydrangea heads, which we cut in October and took on a beautiful soft pale green hue, not present in fresh flowers, we used these as the understory for the Bride's bouquet. We mixed this with dried seed pods of Poppy and Thlaspi and blended them together with fresh white tulips, peachy pink and cream Ranunculus, blossom from the hedgerow and some evergreen foliage from the woodland.

The photos were beautifully captured by local Wedding Photographer Elin Mai Photography who managed to capture the stunning light drifting through the full length windows in the Bridal Suite. Elin likes to create a very natural vibe, taking time to ensure couples feel comfortable and have fun in order to capture those magical moments.

The venue itself was Glansevin Mansion (Plas Glansevin) set in the heart of the Carmarthenshire countryside, at the foothills of Bannau Brycheiniog. Glansevin is a stunning Georgian mansion house built as a family home during the Napoleonic war and can accommodate parties of up to 80 guests indoors, with over 40 guests able to stay in the property itself. Being a DIY venue, it is exclusively yours for the day and has a fully equipped catering kitchen for your chosen caterer to use. It also means there's no extra corkage fee for alcohol, so you can bring your own refreshments!

It just shows that not all weddings need to be in the height of Summer to have beautiful locally grown blooms and that April offers loads of choice with both fresh and dried flowers being an option.
