With a winter wedding you can create an utterly romantic, atmospheric affair. Roaring fires, winter whites and a good measure of sparkle all make for a truly magical day! Winter bouquets are one area you can really capture the essence of the season and I have hand-picked a selection of my favourite bouquets. Think icy whites, festive privet berries, eclectic overflowing bouquets that are full of texture, all mixed together with pops of unexpected colour…
One of my favourite things about a winter bouquet is the textures you can create; from the softness of winter roses and cotton flowers to the metallic shimmer of dusty miller and the matte pearl like quality of berries. Add to the mix all the wonderful textures of heather, seed pods and pine boughs and the result will be pretty spectacular. The very nature of winter flowering blooms means that your bouquet will look pretty and fresh all day long and well into the following week too!
You can easily add some festive magic to your bouquet around this time of year by adding a selection of rich red berries and pine boughs to your bouquet. I love the idea of adding some tartan fabric or ribbon around your bouquet too as shown below.
During Spring and Summertime you are pretty much spoilt for choice with an abundance of colourful, natural and seasonal blooms to choose from. Many brides worry that there is not as many options in the Winter months. However you’d be surprised, there is still a huge choice of incredible seasonal blooms and foliage. I have compiled a list of some of these gorgeous winter flowering blooms below…
Flowers: Anemones, tulips, astrantia, roses, tuberose, paperwhites, cotton, narcissus, amaryllis, scabiosa, waxflower, snowdrops, eryngium, pansies and lilies
Foliage: Fresh dill, rosemary, pistache, heather, holly, sola flowers, eucalyptus pods, banana stem, berzelia berries, conifer branches, silver brunia, scented-geranium leaves, dusty miller, juniper boughs, privet berries, pine boughs and pine-cones.
Well I’m spoilt for choice! Which is your favourite?
