Winter isn’t always a time associated with weddings or beautiful flowers but there are endless options when choosing the right floral design for your day, with winter flowers often creating some of the most striking and intimate of ceremonies.
For a sophisticated winter wedding we tend avoid the traditional Christmas colour palette of mixed of whites, greens and reds. Often opting for deep burgundies, soft pinks or creams. When selecting the colour scheme for your arrangements don’t be afraid to choose a flower that perhaps doesn’t emanate Christmas or winter but is in season, this will help to get the most out of your flower. The market is a mass of anemones, tulips, ranuculus and luxurious roses during the winter months, all of which are very versatile and will lend themselves to wedding arrangements perfectly. For this December wedding, in the Scottish highlands, we designed the arrangements using very soft blush tones with hints of sage foliage, often a palette associated with early spring. However, to give an eccentric nod to the festive period we accessorised the arrangements and table settings with tasteful pheasant feathers, gold pine cones and luxury silk ribbon. We added warmth and sophistication to the evening reception using opulent crystal hurricane vases, detailed candelabras and a selection of gold vessels were used to display the blush rose center pieces.
