While you can generally get hold of flowers out of season, seasonal blooms will be less expensive and easier to find. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite blooms and styles for this romantic season.
A great choice for a winter wedding, anemones are striking with their jet black centres. Typically, in season from October to May, they are available in various colours with white one of the most popular varieties.
