Summer blooms; roses, peonies and sweet peas

Summer is the season of lush flowers and fragrant gardens. This is where the locally grown British flowers come into their own, with a he array of varieties to choose from. Here are a few of my favourites that I recommend for summer wedding flowers, although it is nearly impossible to choose! Among the highlights are the blousy roses, with their soft petals and romantic hues, creating a luxurious, romantic and elegant feel to your wedding flowers. Peonies, too, are a favourite, though their peak blooms only last a short while, so you best get married in May or June if you are a peony lover! Nevertheless, their delicate beauty is sure to captivate all who take notice.
