Seasonal wedding flowers for the late summer & autumn

Well, we have, for once had a very long and very hot summer here in Britain which has been an amazingly rare treat but some of us are now looking towards cooling down in the autumnal months ahead. There are probably some brides and grooms that will be thankful they won't be getting married in the blistering temperatures we've seen in recent months. I personally love the autumn, I love the changing of the seasons, the colours, bonfire night and halloween! I myself got married to my lovely wife in November on a bright, cold sunny day at The Asylum in Peckham in 2016, so it's a season close to my heart. We chose jewel tones for our wedding with dark raspberry pink garden roses, emerald green foliage with shots of burgundy, azure gentiana and silvery eucalyptus.

There are so many wonderful blooms and foliage to choose from in November, not to mention berries in every colour imaginable. Popular colour palettes at this time of year range from pure and simple whites, greens and creams, to rich oranges and russets, to dark burgundies and plummy purples and violets with hints of peach and caramel.

Your flowers can really style your wedding and set the scene for your day. You could choose pumpkins, pine cones, rustic log slices with mason jars of red, orange and yellow gerbera daisies with hypericum berries to create a real traditional and cosy autumn wedding. For a more dramatic feel you could use those dark burgundy dahlias and viburnum berries and add a shot of pale pink or peach to give it a slightly softer look.

Whatever you decide you want colour wise, many couples want to keep their flowers seasonal for ethical and financial reasons so use my handy guide when picking out blooms for your special day.
