Seasonal Flowers for a Winter Wedding

The Hellebore also known as the Christmas Rose is most abundantly in flower in January but can be found from December through to February. The beautiful earthy coloured plants have romantic names such as ‘Cinnamon Snow’ and will keep flowering in pots outside despite the cold weather. The flowers could be incorporated into a bouquet for an environmentally conscious winter wedding or used as original table centres in individual pots. They have been used beautifully as a hair accessory in this gorgeous photo from Louise Moon’s Natural Wedding Book. Karen is wearing the Libelule dress from my Sokuhatsu collection.

 

Style Me Pretty, wedding blog

I’ve just been looking at this brilliant blog. One of my brides told me about it so I thought I’d have a peek. Not only can you snoop at hundreds of other people’s gorgeous weddings, you can also build your own ‘Inspiration Board’ using a huge database of beautiful images and ideas. Search for images using colour or keywords from a word cloud and in the DIY section there are oodles of tips for flowers, cakes, favours, gifts and lots more. ┬áIf you’re just starting to plan your wedding and need a bit of help with perfecting your theme, you should definitely take a look.
