May/June 2024

Spring has officially arrived, and before long we’ll be enjoying summer in full bloom. So, what better topic could we have chosen to look into this issue than wedding flowers? I must confess, I adore fresh flowers and love nothing more than putting together our annual feature on the subject – I do hope you’ll indulge me for a short while!

The perfect wedding blooms effortlessly fill an empty venue with romance, fragrance and colour, creating the ultimate ambience; and with the right florist on your side, they can speak volumes about the two of you and the vision for your big day. What’s more, they’re efficient! Pedestals, aisle meadow arrangements, ceremony arches and much more can all be moved into your reception space after the “I dos” and seamlessly transform into centrepieces and top table backdrop. You get the most from your budget, your theme carries through and you keep waste to a minimum.

Your wedding day is all about the two of you, so why not have a think about how you can tailor your flowers to further tell your love story. The language of flowers combines tradition with sentimentality and conveys a meaning that perhaps only the two of you will understand, but as you’re the two most important that’s all that matters. For example, gypsophila is a wedding staple but perhaps its meaning, everlasting love, has been lost over the years. Some of my other favourites are: cornflowers symbolising prosperity and friendship; hydrangeas meaning gratitude and understanding; peonies speaking of romance, prosperity, good luck and a happy life; and roses, in particular pink, which symbolise admiration. So, you see, you can write an entire love letter to your new spouse through your bouquet – how romantic.

I do hope some of this has whet your appetite for more; if so, don’t miss our flower feature from page 45 where the region’s experts have answered some of the floral questions at the forefront of our minds.

As ever, enjoy and keeeep planning!

Located just six miles from the historic city of York, The Parsonage Hotel and Spa stands in three acres of beautiful gardens and enchanting woodland, creating a romantic backdrop for your wedding day. The venue promises that no more than one wedding is held there per day, so the team’s undivided attention will be on yours.

The Castania is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and can seat up to 110 guests. Meanwhile, the Albizia and Wenlock Rooms are available for more intimate “I dos” for up to 20 people.

Wedding breakfasts are hosted in the elegant Crystal Suite, which boasts panoramic views of the garden. Containing its own private bar, it’s the ideal space for your day and evening celebrations.

When your dancing feet are ready to rest for the night, the Hotel boasts a selection of 60 beautifully furnished bedrooms for you and your guests to retire to. Discounted bedroom rates are available, priced per room, per night. You can also benefit from a 20 per cent discount on packages and treatments in the Cloisters Spa and Health Club.

Plus, for the ultimate indulgence, you can book The Parsonage Hotel and Spa for exclusive use for a supplement charge. This would close the hotel from 11am on the day of your wedding until 11am the day following.
