We asked Hannah Withington of Kent-based Patina & Petal for her suggestions for the perfect blooms to style a fabulous winter wedding. Read on to discover what wisdom she had to impart.
"For me, winter weddings come at such an enchanting time of year. The season conjures up images of warmth, with jewel-toned hues, rich textures and luxurious fabrics. Rich, opulent, deep red roses and amaryllis flowers really evoke images of winter for me. I’d team these with icy colours and frosted foliage. Eucalyptus, succulents, hypernicum berries and ranunculi are beautiful at this time of year too.
"Textures can be brought into play through your tablescapes. Think feasting tables laden with flowers mixed with furs, velvets and luxurious fabrics. Pheasant features bring a touch of the countryside rustic look to the heart of Kent. Add a touch of copper, red and green for a real wintry-warm vibe. Candles add a touch of warmth and light when it’s cold outside, and dark afternoons at venues with a roaring log fire mean you can cosy up with those closest to you.
"I love incorporating seasonality into wedding themes, by looking at the natural beauty surrounding us. Think pinecones and moss to add a natural element to your day, bringing the outside in."
