Yorkshire's Monica F Hewitt Florist offers advice on winter wedding flowers

Bride and bridesmaids holding winter wedding bouquets Credit: Naomi KentonWe're getting married in winter, so we want our flowers to be wintry, but not Christmassy. How do we achieve this look?

There's something so special about a winter wedding, and it doesn't have to be Christmassy! Winter is all about capturing the textures of the season. A perfect way to do this is by bringing foliage to the forefront. I love mixing different textures and forms such as brunia, senecio and populus to create interest and drama within a floral design.

The bouquets pictured pair silver-grey foliage with a warm yet neutral toned rose for an elegant and enchanting look. At the same time, don't shy away from using red tones – try a deep burgundy palette alongside a muted cappuccino rose for a cosy winter feel. Everyone has their own style, so don't be afraid to show yours off. Your florist is there to capture your individuality and bring your vision to life.
