Video: Special Union Jack delphinium flag planted in Worcestershire

The story of The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company began on a late spring afternoon many years ago… Charles Hudson paused outside the village churchyard on his way home, and strewn around the lych-gate were tiny wet pieces of coloured paper, debris from an earlier wedding, that had turned the church entrance into an eyesore.

Charles appreciated why so many churches ban the use of confetti within church grounds, but it seemed a shame that the wedding celebrations could not have started as the happy couple stepped out of the church. When he arrived home some petals fell from the flower bouquet Charles was carrying for his wife and he experienced a 'eureka' moment - the idea of Real Flower Petal Confetti was born.

Charles experimented with many flowers and carefully developed his own delicate process of drying petals - using just sunshine and fresh air. Delphiniums were chosen for their ability to retain their shape and beautiful colour when dried. Huge fields of flowers bloom on the farm each summer, and all petals are picked by hand, to be sent out to weddings all over the world.

The demand for natural, biodegradable confetti has been so great that rose petals, wildflowers, hydrangeas, and lavender have been added to the collection, and handmade confetti cones, bridesmaid baskets, petal bags, beautiful paper envelopes and handmade horseshoes are all available to add those finishing touches.

Now, to celebrate their 20th anniversary, the company had a special delphinium field planted in the shape of the Union Jack, as you can see in the video below.
