Working with the seasons is a great place to start when it comes to your wedding. It is a natural signpost that can help you choose most things; from the menu, drinks, clothes and colours. Just as a mulled cider or an apple crumble conjures up images of cosy nights and open fires, the smell of a garden rose can take you straight back to a summer’s day.

As a (very rough) rule of thumb spring flowers tend to be smaller and more delicate; think paperwhite narcissus, hellebores, snake’s head fritillaries. As summer romps in with the bigger and brighter; delphiniums with their blue spears, scented garden roses, twisting clematis and wafting buckets of cosmos. After the riot of summer, autumn strikes a deeper note and brings more earthy tones with sunflowers and dahlias in almost every colour. Of course there are countless exceptions to this (isn’t there always with a good rule?). There’s also the overlaps, like the couple of weeks where rununculas and diva peonies get to appear in the same bouquet.
