Your in-season guide to winter wedding flowers

Beautiful when used in mass
Soft and delicate to add a whimsical touch
Modern, sleek and popular in lux-style arrangements.
Arum lily (late)
Modern and structural.
These beauties come in white pink and deep pink. The delicate blossoms contrast against their stick base beautifully. Great to achieve height without impairing the view at a table.
Commonly known as Protea
An Australian native with interesting texture
Not usually used as a cut flower as they do not last. However, the few random ones we get on our foliage bunches add a bit of fun.
Great for a touch of texture and vibrant colour pop!

Available in so many amazing colours now, they add a touch of luxury to any arrangement. They come in two head sizes so you can vary their use.

Oh, I love a freesia These are not commonly used now but I certainly love including them in my arrangements – especially the white ones.
Not the most popular flower – but you know what? It depends on HOW you use these beauties. Think outside the box!

Such beautiful soft colours which add a touch of whimsy to any arrangement.
Gorgeous flowerets all down the soft stem, with a lovely scent.
Adds a pop of colour (and quite structural).

The soft Rose!
We don’t use the cut flower, however, the rich green leaves lined with brown are always special.
Just so much variety – we always welcome them in our arrangements.
Perfect to add a touch of LUX. So many amazing colours to choose from in both natural and dyed stems.
A great pop of colour.
Reflexing the petals is very on-trend, but I do love a natural garden Rose.
These are wonderful to use in garden-style weddings.
Available as doubles and singles and with a variety of so many amazing colours now. Just beautiful.
