Roses are always popular during the summer months and are often considered the summer wedding flower. They come in all shades of pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, lilacs and of course white and creams. My personal favourite is the beautiful Norma Jean Rose – the perfect wedding rose with its large ivory full blooms and gorgeous perfume. It can stand on its own or mix it with blousy open peonies or fragrant sweet peas for the perfect wedding bouquet.
Summer brides should not stop at roses when thinking about their wedding flowers. Conjure up the image of the perfect English country garden dominated by shades of pinks, mauves and blues and you have the perfect palette for your summer wedding.
