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!

The best blooms handpicked

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 our collection, and handmade confetti cones, bridesmaid baskets, petal bags, beautiful paper envelopes and handmade horseshoes are all available to add those finishing touches.


Celebrating 20 years of growing confetti

The Real Flower Petal Confetti Company are the UK’s original wedding petal growers and we have lead the way in beautiful, natural, biodegradable confetti since 1997. Charles Hudson was looking for ways to diversify the farming on his family estate when he stumbled upon the idea of real flower confetti. CLICK HERE TO READ OUR STORY.

The confetti moment is a quintessential wedding day experience and the traditional simplicity and beauty of the idea of throwing flower petals, together with the fact that they biodegrade as naturally as blossom, meant that our confetti was instantly loved by Brides & Grooms, churches and venues. Real Flower Petal Confetti has now been used at thousands of weddings worldwide, including those of celebrities and Royalty, and they have also been used to bring a touch of romance to TV and feature films too.

The Wyke Manor estate is nestled in the shadow of Bredon Hill, in the picturesque Worcestershire countryside, and our flower fields are a sight to behold! We welcome visitors to the fields in early July - take a look at the Flower Field page for visiting information.

Over the years Charles has planted some special designs in the flower fields we have big plans for 2017 - our 20th anniversary year! By popular demand we have replanted our famous Union Jack Flower Flag – don’t miss your chance to see the enormous red, white and blue display.
