Choosing your wedding flowers

Where to start when choosing your blooms.

Choosing your wedding flowers is an artful task that adds colour, fragrance, and life to your big day. Flowers are not just decorations; they’re symbols of growth and new beginnings, making them an essential element of your wedding.


Perfect for spring bouquets are Orchids; they are a sign of beauty. Phalaenopsis Orchids are large flowers that make a statement. At the same time, Cattleya Orchids are beautiful for romantic weddings as they are usually white with shades of pink or lavender in the centre. Anemone represents unfading love and a ray of colours, including brilliant reds, pinks and purples, while daffodils range from yellows to whites and are great for centre Pieces.

Ideal for summer months are forget-me-not and Stephanotis—small blue flowers with short stems representing true love. Forget-me knots are great for filling bouquets with colour, while Stephanotis are white, waxy flowers that make excellent button holes. Chrysanthemums are colourful daisy-like blooms that come in a range of sixes. The lime green satin variety is perfect for complimenting bright bouquets. Carnations symbolise good health and energy, while sunflowers are always a summer favourite.


This autumn is all about the vintage look; faded pinks are in this season and create a fantastic look. The pink illusion Rose looks terrific in bouquets. For a mellow autumn wedding, you could go for Gladiolus, which comes in a warm, soft peach colour or a bright exotic bird of paradise for a more dramatic look. Honeysuckle symbolises generosity and devoted affection, while white heather represents protection. Arcacia’s little yellow flowers represent friendship and secret passion.

Winter weddings can be magical with the right flowers. Amaryllis, ranunculus, and even the classic poinsettia can offer warmth. Don’t shy away from incorporating evergreens and holly for a festive touch.

By considering the season, you not only ensure the availability and freshness of your blooms but also contribute to the natural aesthetic of your wedding time. Whether it’s the bright blossoms of summer or the rich tones of fall, your flowers can make a seasonal statement that enhances the beauty of your special day.
