Try to use flowers and foliage that work well for that time of year. For example, ranunculus and anemones in spring, blousy garden flowers in summer, mixed foliage and berries for autumn and winter.

Give your flowers priority in the planning process. Remember, they’ll be seen in many of the photos, so it’s important to sit down with your florist to discuss your needs and budget to achieve your desired look. A good starting point is the bouquet, which should reflect you in its style and personality. It can then provide the inspiration for the other floral designs, enabling the same look to run throughout.

Match your flowers to your venue. A relaxed rustic look with garden flowers is ideal for an informal barn wedding, or for a more formal affair in a lavish manor house, you may prefer more structured blooms in high arrangements.
