Welcome to my Summer Flower Guide. Here I will give you a run down of some of my favourite seasonal summer blooms that I love to include in my couples wedding flowers. It’s all about dreamy, abundant, gorgeousness when it comes to summer 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 wedding designs.

Perfectly delicate and hightly scented. They come in a beautiful range of colours from soft pale pinks and lavenders through to deep dark burgundy tones. I adore using these early summer flowers to add whimsical detail to bouquets and table centres.
Chasmanthium, briza, miscanthus, there are so many beautiful varieties. I adore the delicate detail and movement that grasses add to bouquets and arrangments. They help give that relaxed, hazey, romantic feeling. Nothing speaks of summer more.

So beautiful with their delicate nodding heads. Scabious are wonderful for creating a summer meadow look. They add lovely movement and interesting texture to bouquets and help give that wild and natural feel that my couples love. These little beauties are available in delicate, subtle shades from deep berry tones through to delicate lavender and blush.
