When it comes to weddings, there are plenty of traditions that we all enjoy. Seeing the bride for the first time, the best man's speech and throwing confetti all over the newlyweds are all moments to remember.
The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company, based on the Wyke Manor Estate in Wick near Pershore, are the UK’s original wedding petal growers. The business has been growing and hand-picking natural, biodegradable confetti since 1997.
The confetti moment is a quintessential wedding day experience. The traditional simplicity and beauty of the idea of throwing flower petals, together with the fact that they biodegrade as naturally as blossom, means that The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company's petals are instantly loved by happy couples, churches and venues. Today, more and more couples are looking to make eco-friendly and sustainable wedding day choices, which the business fully supports.
The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company's confetti has now been used at tens of thousands of weddings worldwide, including those of celebrities and royalty.
In 2005, the business had the pleasure of supplying the confetti for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, Charles and Camilla. Prince William and Prince Harry organised the confetti purchase, and chose a mix of pale pink and ivory delphinium petals. With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming wedding on May 19th, the business is hopeful that they will have an important part to play in the next royal wedding.
Charles Hudson, owner, said “It would be a wonderful honour to play a part in another royal marriage celebration. We wish Harry & Meghan all the very best for their special day.”
Each summer a huge field of flowers bloom on the Wyke Manor Estate. Delphiniums and cornflowers are this year on display from 29th June to 8th July. Visitors can enjoy the unique views, take some photos and try delicious locally made cakes. After the flower field event, the petals are picked by hand, to be sent out to weddings all over the world.
