Summer wedding flowers
The summer months are abundant with fresh flowers and the best time of year for English grown flowers too. It’s an especially good time for all shades of pinks and purples, it brings beautiful peonies from whites and pale pinks through to deep burgundies. Hydrangeas with gorgeous fat heads in many colours. Delphiniums, sweet peas, dahlias, cornflowers, scabious, asters, sweet william, snap dragons, stocks, astilbe, lilac. The list of summer flowers is never ending. During a season with so much natural light there are no limitations to colour schemes either. Country garden themes work as well as crisp whites and greens or a more tropical look of hot pinks, limes and oranges.
Autumn wedding flowers
Several summer flowers continue into early autumn. Although autumn itself provides many wonderful colours from rich reds to burnt oranges and golden shades. With the wealth of wonderful leaves and berries available at this time many brides choose to go for a natural look. Using bark, twigs, leaves and decorative gourds as accents in floral arrangements of rich shades such as oranges, reds and golds. The chrysanthe comes into it’s own during autumn with various large single blooms in warm shades of bronze and gold. English chrysanthemum blooms are available too in autumn. For brides preferring a contemporary autumn look there are many exotic looking flowers to keep the look modern. Such as Birds of paradise, pincushion proteas and mango calla lilies.
