The Perfect Wedding Flowers for All Seasons
No matter what time of year you plan to marry, the seasons have some wonderful flowers in store. These glorious blooms bring the outside into Morden Hall, whether you’re planning a mid-summer wedding with a pastel colour scheme, or a December celebration with rich reds and greens.
Carnations, Forget-me-Nots, Lily of the Valley, Narcissus, Peonies, Ranunculus, Roses
The spring months introduce some glorious blooms to the UK. Narcissus (daffodils) are a popular choice, especially if you like the idea of a delicate pastel colour scheme or decide to embrace the vibrant yellows.
In early spring, we love a combination of classic white carnations and roses. You might also add some beautifully scented lily of the valley – although it’s an expensive flower so often used sparingly, perhaps just in your bouquet.
If you’re planning an April wedding, tulips are at their best and make a beautiful wedding flower, whether used alone or combined with other blooms.
And, as the weather gets warmer and you move towards May, there are even more flowers in store. Bring the outside in with an abundance of pretty blossom, Sweet William (dianthus) and, of course, some blousy peonies.
Hyacinths, Hydrangea, Lily of the Valley, Muscari, Roses, Sunflowers
In June, July and August, the flowers are in full bloom and you have much to choose from. Tulips and roses remain in season and you can add gypsophila, iris, delphiniums, cornflowers and hydrangea to your list.
When choosing your flowers, consider the combinations of their scents and how well they will last out of water on a warm day. It’s also a lovely idea to add lush greenery and foliage, bringing the beauty of the gardens and Morden Hall Park into the venue.
Amaryllis, Dahlias, Lilies, Lisianthus, Orchids, Freesias, Roses
The decadent hues of oranges, browns and golds are reflected in the season, with some dramatic flowers to make stunning arrangements.
Whether you choose rich, vibrant colours or classic white and ivory, consider adding berries to your arrangements, alongside the wonderful foliage that reflects the great outdoors.
Anemones, Chrysanthemums, Hellebores, Poinsettias, Roses, Tulips, Winter Camellias
Your choice of flowers in this season will depend on your wedding date. A December wedding often embraces the festivity of the month, from the reds and greens from poinsettias to the wintery tones of hellebores. Of course, you might also like to introduce a Christmas tree to the Mulberry Suite!
In January and February, roses remain popular throughout and the options for colour are endless, from rich deep reds and purples to elegant winter whites. We also love anemones with their black centres, and the lavish, large blooms of chrysanthemums.
