I think peonies are a perfect wedding flower

Last updated:

The season for peonies is nearly over, so we thought we’d celebrate this luscious flower with a full feature on wedding peonies!

Peonies come in a rainbow of colours, from pure white to vibrant fuchsia, rust orange to pale peach, these fat flower friends look gorgeous in structured bouquets, wild arrangements and garlands. I adore the ruffled layers of abundant petals, and they look gorgeous by themselves or mixed with roses, sweet peas and green or grey foliage.

I think peonies are a perfect wedding flower – versatile, beautiful and heavenly scented. Here are some of my favourite peony creations.

If you’re planning a spring wedding, peonies are the perfect flower – talk to your florist about how you can incorporate them in your big day. Whether you’re going for a pastel or bright wedding colour palette, there’ll be something to suit!
