Wedding Flowers Through The Seasons

Couples quite often come to me not knowing what flowers are available for their wedding. Most of them are happy to trust me with the finer detail of what flowers make up their arrangements, as long as it’s in-keeping with a select style or colour palette. Occasionally there is a request for a specific something because it’s a favourite or has sentimental value & I will always try my best to make sure it’s part of the day.

I say try because Mother Nature is very much in charge of what is available at the market. Especially if you have a preference to British grown flowers over imported. That’s why not being too specific is usually the best way - have faith that your florist will deliver you gorgeous blooms.

I’ve compiled a list of a few of my favourite wedding flowers available by month. This list is just a tiny snippet, some flowers might be available for longer than I have listed but it’s a good basic guide:
