Q. Can you give us some flower inspiration for our winter wedding?

A. Vintage & Bloom says: Meet the expert: Vintage & Bloom is a local bespoke florist located in Penryn, Cornwall, with more than ten years experience styling flowers for weddings.

Angela says: When looking for inspiration for winter wedding flowers, consider the beauty of these seasonal months. It's all about the textures and scents. For example, think of the unmistakable aroma of pines or the ashy blue shade of eucalyptus leaves and use luxurious satin and velvet ribbons to finish bouquets.

Winter weddings are incredibly romantic so when planning your flowers, try to capture that wintery feel. Move away from traditional red, gold and green shades and be inspired by nature. Think of the frosty mornings and opt for crisp white and grey tones mixed with soft pink for a touch of colour.

Add thistle, pine cones and berries to a hand-tied bouquet. Other seasonal varieties to pick from are amaryllis, anemone, rosemary and jasmine.

For floral arrangements in the venue and church, suspended foliage hoops and branches with wintery leaves bring the outdoors in. Pine cones and berries styled on tables with candles, and fairylights strung from the ceiling entwined with blooms, will create a cosy atmosphere.
