"Flowers don't tell; they show." Stephanie Skeem

Nature has been used for centuries as decoration and to provide special meaning to celebrations.

The Hawthorn Tree (May tree) has been strongly linked to Beltane, the ancient festival celebrating spring and symbolises love and protection.

Since ancient times would plant a Rowan beside their home as in Celtic mythology it's known as the Tree of Life and symbolises courage, wisdom and protection

There has been evidence of flowers being involved in wedding ceremony’s as far back as 800 - 500 BC in Egypt, Greece & Rome. Greeks used to carry Olive Branches and Herbs to honour Hera Goddess of Marriage & Fertility. They often also incorporated Ivy which symbolised the unbreakable bond of Marriage.
