If you want to pick your own wedding flowers then why not visit Blooming Green near Maidstone, Kent. It’s the perfect way for brides and their families to de-stress in the run-up to their wedding.

Some brides enjoy the peace and quiet of the flower plot, while others have a giggle, skipping along the rows of flowers and snipping their favourite blooms as they go. Jen and Bek at Blooming Green keep everyone happy with a ready supply of tea and biscuits, and tips if needed.

Pick Your Own Wedding Flowers at Blooming Green

“Last year, one bride said that picking her wedding flowers from our plot had been the most fun hour of her life. I pointed out that her future husband might not want to hear that!”

Brides and their families are encouraged to visit a couple of days before the wedding, so they can pick flowers straight into water and keep them cool overnight, for maximum freshness. It also means there’s less rushing around, and brides have the next day, the day before their wedding, to decorate their venue.

“We never imagined ‘Pick Your Own Wedding Flowers’ would be so popular, but we are thrilled that it is.”

Blooming Green now offers a variety of options for pick your own flowers: on Friday afternoons and occasional Saturdays throughout the summer, people can simply turn up and pick their own flowers, without an appointment. Those wanting flowers for their wedding need to book their buckets in advance, and can come and pick on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, from April to October.

As well as picking their own flowers, brides and their friends and families can also learn how to arrange their own flowers, thanks to a variety of flower arranging courses run by Blooming Green on weekends, and at workshops on selected Friday afternoons.

Today’s incredible styled shoot has been inspired by the beautiful scenes and culture of Morocco, giving inspiration to anyone looking for a romantic wedding abroad, or even a Moroccan themed wedding in the UK. Stylist Carly Rae, with the help of her incredible creative team, has styled a beautifully romantic wedding shoot, based on the memories that Carly has of Morocco from when she lived there.

We love the way the team have used their own twist and deviated from the traditional bright colours used to portray Morocco, and use pretty creams, blues and metallics to create a summer celebration

This is such a romantic bridal look in an amazing location… Okay, it’s not actually Morocco, but we bet you wouldn’t even notice!

“After leaving high school I decided I wanted to take a gap year, and during that time off I lived in Morocco where I fell in love with the people, culture, and aesthetics of the country.

“This Moroccan shoot seems to have been a long time coming; it’s a ‘passion project’! I have taken all my fondest memories of the country and turned them into an inspiration shoot for a modern day wedding. These photos were actually taken in California near the Mexico border, as California is home to some endless sand dunes, much like the ones overseas.”
