10 Winter Blooms for Seasonal Flower Arrangements
We might not be blessed with snow on this sunny island, but that doesn’t mean a ‘winter wonderland’ wedding is off the cards. With a variety of stunning flowers in season at this time of year, you’ll want to ditch all plans of tying the knot in spring or summer. We’re not kidding.
Dramatic anemones, with their white petals and dark centres, will be the star of the arrangement. Complemented by baby pink roses and green fillers, you’re looking at a pretty exquisite and wintery bouquet.
A classic yet contemporary choice, white tulips are elegant, neat and particularly beautiful in white for a winter wedding. This bouquet includes a marvellous mix of white tulips, paper whites, dusty miller, camellia foliage, succulents, mini pine cones and lotus pods.
Deep, rich colours are a great choice for winter weddings, and incredibly on trend too. Mix white calla lilies with deep purple calla lilies, arranged with lilac filler as well as green seeded eucalyptus.
Seasonal delphiniums come in an incredible range of blue and purple tones, from light and pastel varieties to dark and vibrant options. They may be the star or accompaniment to your wedding bouquets, or used for elegant centrepieces in keeping with your wedding’s colour theme.
Gardenias are a delicate and classic option for wedding flowers, and particularly fragrant too. Paired with greenery and minimal foliage or with other, larger flowers the likes of peonies and roses, you’re guaranteed a romantic look and feel.
The versatility and variety of English roses make them a popular yet timeless choice for weddings – no matter the season. Often referred to as David Austin roses, named after Britain’s foremost rose breeder who’s been in the business for over 60 years, they come in a variety of pinks, apricots, yellows and whites, and deserve to be the star attraction of your wedding flower arrangements.
The colour of the berry family could set the tone for the rest of your wedding. From burgundy to grape and all the opulent colours in between, add touches of berries to your wedding bouquet, seen here together with eucalyptus, velvety roses and scabiosa seed pods. It’s a picture perfect bouquet.
Speaking of eucalyptus, it could even be the focal point of your floral arrangements. Paired here with dahlias and veronicas, it’s a perfect choice for the bride who prefers a wild bouquet over a neat round one.
Add a pop of colour to your winter wonderland wedding by way of ranunculas, available in deep purple, blush and bright pink, yellow, red and white. The yellow ones seen here, combined with garden roses, succulents and seeded eucalyptus, are a top choice for a rustic wedding.
Star of Bethlehem
Often the go-to choice for winter wedding flowers, star of Bethlehem, seen here with white veronica, rosemary, fern leaves and other green foliage, is as versatile as it gets, and a great choice for fuss-free couples who prefer a simple palette of green and white.
