Welcome to my Autumn Flower Guide. Here I will give you a run down of some of my favourite seasonal Autumn blooms that I love to include in my couples wedding flowers. It’s all about rich colour, muted tones and beautiful texture when it comes to Autumn florals.
I love to use varieties such as garden roses, snap dragons, astrantia, lisanthus and scented stocks. These are available on the cut flower market throughout the year. I truly believe it is the imperfectly beautiful, wild natural nature of seasonal varieties that add that magic and personality to your wedding designs.
Autumn Wedding Flowers
Beautifully abundant blooms. I adore hydrangea in the Autumn when they start to ‘harden off’ and are filled with wonderful muted red tones. Gorgeous for adding impact in larger arrangements, garlands and statement arches.
I absolutley adore any deep red autumn foliage but cottinus is a particular favourite. It has a lovely deep plum colour and really adds depth and richness to wedding designs. I use it in everything from bouquets and table centres to large displays.
So beautiful with their jewel like tones. I love using berries in my autumn designs. Rosehips are perfect for adding delicate detail and a pop of colour to bouquets and buttonholes.
Well known as a autumn flower. I love to use the deeper coloured dahlia with burgundy and red tones in wedding work. They are wonderful as a focal flower in bouquets and table centre pieces. I also love adding them to larger arrangements and bud vases.
Delicate little beauties. They are so unique and unusual looking because of their deep rich brown colour. They are wonderful for just adding that extra special detail to bouquets and autumnal compote vase arrangements.
Beautifully elegant open blooms. I have these in my own garden and they keep flowering right into October and sometimes November. They are seen in pinks and white. I love using them to add detail and movement particularly in larger arrangements.
Lovely arching branches with delicate berries. They add an interesting seasonal shape and detail to wedding designs. I absolutely love using them in autumn urn arrangements. You can spot them growing naturally in the hedgerows from September on wards. Snowberry or Symphoricarpos (to call it by it’s proper botanical name) are available in whites, pale pinks and deep pinks.
These wonderful old fashioned blooms really come into their own at this time of year. I particularly love the ‘mop-head’ varieties with their wonderful in-curving petals. They come in such amazing autumnal colours from bronze through to dusky purples and champagne tones. Chrysanthemum are wonderful added as a focal flower in larger arrangements.
Autumn floral designs are all about the foliage for me. Beech is a very beautiful one for me with its lovely copper colour. I adore adding it to vases, table centres and larger displays.
