Calling all April Brides / by Charley Gynn

April is by far the best month to get married, the weather is never disappointing as you don't really have high expectations, if anything, its always better than you could have hoped but more importantly THE FLOWERS ARE FAB!!! All my favourite flowers are in season.  You are getting the end of all the best spring flowers plus the very start of peonies and garden roses, who could ask for more?!....And the colours, don't even get me started...move over whites, creams and nudes, hello yellows, hot pinks, purples blues oranges. Mix all these wonderful scented blooms with colourful vases, ribbons and a splash of unexpected sunshine and you have the perfect wedding day.  

My favourite April wedding has to be last weekends (possibly my favourite wedding to date all though there have been so many fabulous ones, but this one is definitely up there).  A beautiful setting of The Tap on the Line, a gorgeous listed pub with an incredible atrium over looking Kew gardens train station. Typically London, old mixed with new but in the most cohesive way, elegant way.  The bride was a dream, the venue was a dream and the brief was a dream, all in all, a dream wedding. We used "Claire de Lune" Peonies, Coral Peonies, David Austin Roses, English Lilac, Ranunculus, Aquilegia and the most heavily scented sweet peas.  I've just given you a list of all my favourite flowers there (bar dahlias, but thats a different story)...Anyway, enough about me...as they say a picture says a thousand words....PS. get married in April!!
