How to pick the perfect flowers for your summer wedding

How to pick the perfect flowers for your summer wedding

And so to Wed offers wedding couples a window to all that is beautiful and bespoke for their wedding.

As a florist and owner of Amamini flowers using the best flowers means choosing to use seasonal flowers throughout the year. I buy the very best quality Dutch flowers and I grow a wide selection of flowers in my garden that give my brides bouquets that feel unique and special.


Peach is such a beautiful colour in a summer bouquet.

I love peach roses with fresh mint green or blue summer flowers like English Scabious. Touches of white bring bouquets brightness by day and light in the evening.


Scent is another must for a bridal bouquet and June’s Orange Blossom simply fills the air with its wonderful romantic scent.

Flower choice

Everyone loves Peonies in June, with layers of beautiful petals. Two more unusual favourites are Coral Charm and Pink Dr Fleming.

Choral Charm with Mint green.

Be unique!

I love quirky combinations…these fabulous red garden roses and purples are definitely dramatic.

Seasonal flowers are also wonderful mixed with a feeling that you have just lifted up a part of the border.

It's all in the detail

With details always making the difference in bespoke bouquets – and for me combining texture, form, scent, colour and tone makes that difference.

White flowers show this most and are possibly the most popular choice for scented summer wedding flowers.

And finally here I am holding a vintage style vase of blush Peonies outside my Victorian style green house and the Amamini flowers HQ, where I meet my lovely brides surrounded by fabulous flowers.
