The world’s most famous flower show comes to London for the next week.

This seems like a great time to talk about wedding flower arrangements and get some inspiration from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

I came across this photo of preparations being made to the gardens shortly before the show opened. Here a gardener arranges radishes at the Jersey Farmers Union vegetable garden.

I can just imagine these radish globes being hung on some beams above the dining tables of a farmhouse wedding.

Vegetables and flowers, and fruit and flowers seem an unlikely combination but work amazingly well together. They can lend a centrepiece a feeling of abundance and plenty. It reminds me of those baroque paintings you see lurking in gloomy gallery corners.

Think a harvest festival and huge merry celebrations full of wine, dancing and loads and loads of glorious food.

Fruits and vegetables have such beautiful colours easily rivalling flowers in diversity and vividness.

Ariella Chezar, who created the above centrepiece for Martha Stewart Weddings, leaves fruit on the vines or branches, arranging them so they arch alluringly.

You can match colours to the colour scheme of your wedding and pick certain fruit for seasonality. Say lemons for spring.

I particularly like the look of peaches and plums as I adore the deep pinks and purples.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a lovely wedding on a farm in Suffolk. Fairy lights filled the trees and twinkled in the rivers that surrounded the farm.

The bride had got crafty and made most of the decorations. Bunting was created from different textures of white fabric and blue and pink fairy lights trailed the beams of the farmhouse along with homemade butterflies.

Each guest was given a local pickle or chutney in cute little jars tied with rose pink ribbons printed with the message ‘To have and to hold’. Get these ribbons for your own big day at Cox & Cox.
