Flowers specialist, Ellouise Hasler-Stott, owner of Flowers by EG in Kent, offers advice for picking the perfect flowers for your autumn / winter wedding.
What flowers would you recommend for an autumn wedding?
I love textures, and autumn is all about so many different elements coming together. For Autumn designs choose Amaranthus, Celosia and Rose Hips - these three are all really different in their shaping, form and texture so when put together in a bridal bouquet they compliment one another really well and create a strong visual impact.
What flowers would you recommend for a winter wedding?
Winter wedding flowers include loads of rich foliages in different shades pulled together with muted colours to creating very pure and elegant bouquets. Stick with white flowers teamed with gorgeous foliages in greens, greys and soft blues. My favourite winter flowers are Hellebore, Jasmine, Anemone and Tuberose - all of which are availble in a range of whites and creams to create that perfect winter look.
Which flower trends are popular for autumn / winter weddings?
Large backdrops are very popular right now to create that wow factor. Whether it be an archway, moon gate or hanging display, lots of couples are wanting to give their guests a stand-out surprise on their big day.
If you want to include one of these wow-factor displays in your big they, these can be created with a good mixture of foliages in varying colours, textures and sizes. We have so much choice at this time of year, which is also another great way to keep the cost down by adding just foliage.
Main piece of advice for brides choosing their wedding flowers:
When you find your florist, be honest and tell them your budget - by leaving us with themes, colours and ideas we can work out the best to suit your budget using our knowledge and using the seasons to our advantage.
We can use seasonal availability to create wonderful floral fabulousness and sometimes the more unusual flowers and textures can create designs you can only dream of.
