Last year I met Sarah and Martin when they decided to celebrate their wedding In Italy. They fell in love with Relais Corte Guastalla, a beautiful  16th century Italian country house, located just a short distance from stunning  Lake Garda and romantic Verona . They decided to organize their party here and they chose an intimate, charming country church for the ceremony.

The floral backdrop was a mix of romantic and country chic.  White, green and peach were use as the colour scheme for the  event.

Sarah was passionate about white peony so I used this as the main flower together with an array  of graceful and rustic flowers.

An impressionist garden in the Tuscan hills

I’ve just come back from a short stay in Tuscany where I visited the beautiful ‘Podere Puscina Flowers’ owned by 3 sisters.

A family run business in the very heart of Tuscany where Teresa, Mara and Laura grow their own local flowers respecting the biodiversity and nature.

I was greeted by Kira, their friendly dog and an incredible landscape. Walking through the fields was like being part of an impressionist painting. The colours of flowers, the bright blue sky, the magical wood at the end of the valley, together with the golden wheat fields were truly inspirational.

There were many amazing varieties of flowers such as: romantic English garden roses, corn flower, lavender, veronica, false goat’s beard, love-in-amist, scbious, alchemilla …

The one that captured my attention the most was the poppy. I’ve never seen so many different colours and varieties.
