What flowers and colours would you suggest for a summer wedding?

"We’re all happier in the summer when the sun is shining and the evenings are lighter, it’s when our gardens bounce to life with colour and interest, so why shouldn’t your wedding be the same? Bright vivid hues are easy to achieve with a beautiful mix of summer flowers. Why not be brave and mix a vibrant purple with a hot pink and yellow?

"Flowers such as dahlias are available in lots of shades and can be a good substitute for a rose if you prefer to step away from the more traditional look. Astilbe adds interest and texture, while wax flowers, asters or lavender create a more wild look. Iris or delphinium can work well if you need to create height in your arrangements whilst still injecting interest.

"Never forget foliage, green is the colour of nature, so be it delicate grasses for a messy design or kentia for a tropical feel, just the right amount will help your flowers pop."
