Flowers on wood – a naturally perfect marriage!

When planning a wedding, there are so many things to consider from the venue and catering right down to what shoes to wear!
Flowers play such an important role at a wedding and, quite rightly, should take centre stage with their striking beauty and gentle fragrance.
We have been extremely lucky to have our wood products used as part of floral displays at many weddings over the years. It always amazes us at how many different ways flowers can be displayed and with such amazing themes, awash with colours, that undoubtedly catch the eye.
We felt that it was only right to share some recent images of floral displays from weddings in 2016. It is always such a delight for us here at M H Woodland to see our wood products in use whether it be for centrepieces, table settings or for cakes. Seeing our products in their final setting of a wedding brings them alive and we feel honoured that our wood, from our own woodland here in Wales can be part of so many stunning displays!
I am sure you will agree it’s a perfect natural marriage to use wood with floral displays. Nature at its very best. With colours that literally ‘pop’ as seen with these bright oranges, pinks and purples of the Pumpkin floral display. Wood works well with any colour – the beautiful tones of white and green perfectly compliment each other and look very much at home on a wood slice.
We enjoy working with other businesses in the wedding industry and have worked with some amazingly talented florists in the past, helping them to create stunning displays for weddings, birthdays and competitions!
The photos shown in this post were kindly provided by the super talented Alison White of Alison White Wedding Flowers based in Leaden Roding, Essex. Alison offers a friendly personal service for all wedding and event flowers. We are truly grateful to her for enabling us to share these images – we think you’ll agree they are simply stunning and are a great example of how you can use wood in a floral display!

Photo Gallery – everything with wood!

We have set up a new product photo gallery with lots of amazing photos –  many of these have been kindly sent in by customers who have used our wood products to display cakes at their own events. We LOVE having photos sent to us by customers whether it be a cake display, candles or centrepieces. For us, it enables us to see our products in their fully glory! Why not send us your photos – we would love to share them too!

We have to say – we are very impressed with the creativity of our customers and their cake making skills too! Naked cakes seem to be very popular and rightly so – they look absolutely stunning! Our thanks go to the amazing Claire at ‘Cake Carousel’ ( for letting us use so many of her photos on our gallery and of course, to all the kind customers who have sent in their photos!

Goodbye 2015 – what a creative year it was!

As we say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016 we would like to thank all our customers for their orders and support – we had some very interesting and unusual bespoke requests that were great fun to work on – from cake makers, brides and restaurant chefs! We look forward to this coming year and hope we have just as many requests from creative customers who love what we create here as much as we do!!

Rustic, Creative, Bespoke, Quirky, Unusual are all words we have used time and again in describing what we do – we like to take inspiration from the natural shape of the wood and adore some of the products we list that are that little bit more unusual. We continue to expand our stock list and range of products and are always open to requests or ideas. Last year saw us produce our first ‘cake pop’ stand for use at the National Wedding Fayre. We are thinking of adding these to our standard stock for this year – so if you have any ideas or requests, we’d love to hear from you.

Finally – here are some of the very wonderful comments we received from our customers last year:
