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 people 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 Honor Hera Goddess of Marriage & Fertility. They often also incorporated Ivy which symbolised the unbreakable bond of Marriage.
To This day Brides more often then not have a bouquet of flowers which are predominantly chosen due to their aesthetic and to match the colour scheme or as the brides favourite flower. But did you know flowers have secret little meanings? Examples of these are: -
Freesias- Innocence & Trust |
Iris - Faith & Wisdom |
Dahlia -Commitment & Everlasting Bond |
Lily - Majesty, Truth & Honour |
Peonies - Love, Happiness & Ambition |
Roses - Romance, Love & Beauty |
Sunflowers - Adoration & Joy |
Tulip - Love & Passion |
Lilac - Loves First Emotion |
Would you consider picking flowers now because of its secret meaning? What flowers will you choose? -
