Felicity Cook of Briar House Flowers reminds us why it's important to use in-season blooms in the wedding styling process...

“We try wherever possible to encourage our brides to use in-season blooms,” says Felicity Cook of Briar House Flowers.

“It not only saves money, but reminds us how lucky we are to have such distinct seasons in this country – each with their own range of beautiful floral arrangements.”



Spring bursts into life in a blaze of flowers such as tulips, scented narcissi, genista, cherry blossom, clematis, hyacinths, lilac, muscari and bluebells – the list is endless.



When spring’s wide tapestry of flowers begins to fade, the glories of the full English summer sneak in. Think roses, foxgloves, delphiniums, sweet peas, jasmine, lavender, cow parsley and herbs.



Autumn flowers always remind me of jewels. Hydrangeas, Chinese lanterns, berries, hips, haws, brambles and seed heads of all kinds can be combined in a riot of russets, reds, orange, purples and pinks.



As the nights draw in and we snuggle up in front of log fires with Christmas just around the corner, we love to use candle light, fairy lights and garlands decorated with holly, ivy, spruce, amaryllis, anemones and Christmas roses – using a little fairy dust and plenty of sparkle.
