To have, and to hold

One of the many seasonal advantages of a winter wedding is the variety of beautifully rustic festive flora at your ??? excuse us, your florist’s – fingertips. Create a multi-sensory wonderland for your wedding with an infusion of pine and rosemary and arrangements of cranberries and mistletoe, offering a visual feast that doesn’t make you feel gluttonous.

The centerpiece
Take inspiration from a winter woodland and create your own rustic centerpieces. Explore your local walking trail to gather twigs, leaves and handfuls of the other seasonal treats waiting to be foraged. By bringing nature to the table you can create a feeling of banqueting outdoors, with the comfort and warmth of being surrounded by the ones you love, in a rustic venue to compliment your blooms.

The bouquet
A seasonal posey of winter florals will last longer than one in summer (or indeed hothoused summer flowers, in winter). These hardy little blooms grow to withstand frost and harsh winds, so embrace the likes of the Star of Bethlahem, the Christmas Rose and even some berries and you should get the new year out of your wedding blooms.
