What’s in Season: Summer
A Floral Wonderland
If you have plans of tying the knot in a whole new floral wonderland, bursting with natural colour and fragrance - you must be keen to know which seasonal flowers are available to adorn the whole event. Here are some of the trendiest and visually stimulating blooms that are in season….
This flower has clusters of small, star-shaped blossoms bursting from a leafy green stem and is very delicate. Often compared to stephanotis blooms as they share a similar structure but vary just enough to catch your eye. Often available in white, peach, pink and red.
(Symbolises gratitude and dignity)
Look no further for the perfect summer bloom. These bold, bushy flowers have a history as dramatic as their appearance. Available in white, yellow, orange, pink, red and purple tones.
(Meaning innocence and simplicity)
You may find the daisy a fitting flower for your wedding if you plucked its white petals in a game of "he loves me, he loves me not" as a child. Is there anything more cheerful than a whimsical flower for a casual wedding
A classic in English cottage flower beds, the delphinium has towering spires and clustered florets. It lends a country-garden feel to wedding arrangements while adding height and drama in white, pink, lavender, purple and blue.
Standing tall and proud, the gladiolus has a spiky stem with large florets that open in succession. Full stems can be used to add height to arrangements, while the individual florets make lovely boutonnieres. Often available in white, yellow, green, apricot, orange, pale pink, dark pink, red, lavender, purple.
With its big, bushy head and intense colours, Hydrangea's large floral head makes it the perfect bloom to span garlands the length of a table runner, cover big arches or cascade down tiers of a grand cake.
(Symbolises sweet dreams)
With large clusters of small-petaled, disk-shaped blossoms atop branching stems, phlox provides a lush backdrop for featured flowers in a bouquet or arrangement. It has a sweet and mild to very aromatic scent.
(Symbolises Sensible Woman)
This enchanting flower is right at home tucked in between showier blooms. After the bloom flowers, the scabiosa pod is equally as beautiful. It's often used in rustic, wild-looking bouquets for a touch of organic whimsy.
(Symbolises loyalty and pride)
Bold and flashy, with raylike petals and disk-shaped dark centres, the sunflower is most at home at informal weddings. It comes in warm colours, from golden yellow to deep reddish brown.
