If you’ve a forthcoming autumn/winter wedding and you’d like to use some seasonal UK grown flowers; take a look at my list of favourites for some inspiration.
Dahlia – a stunning large flower, which comes in a wide range of colours. Most abundant in the UK from August to October. Stems can last between four and six days.
Amaryllis – lily looking flower. The amaryllis is a very floral plant and popular at Christmas time. Available in a wide variety of colours and makes a great alternative to roses.
Hellebores – a late winter plant, that offers a choice of delicate colours when added to a bouquet. Choose from pinks, creams or pale purple flowers.
Foliage and berries – for a very seasonal bouquet and ideal for a Christmas wedding. Foliage and berries offer a stunning alternative and can be also used to dress up a lapel or as table decorations.
Mistletoe – can’t be missed if again having a Christmas wedding. Mistletoe added to your bouquet can compliment so many other flowers, while adding that seasonal touch.
Anemone – I adore this flower! Flowering in the UK from August to October, the gorgeous anemone also comes in a variety of colours.
Carnations – Great value for money flower and available all year. The carnation packs in colour to any bouquet. Long lasting and very versatile.
