It’s a total misconception that during winter all of the most beautiful flowers go into hibernation until spring, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Australia boasts a stunning array of blooms that flourish during this cosy time of year. If you’re planning a winter wedding, there is no doubt that you’ll be captivated by the breath taking cool-weather floral options available.

Here are our top picks…

The classic rose

Radiant, resplendent, and a true symbol of romance, roses are a timeless choice for any wedding, and winter is no exception. While roses are available year-round, their beauty takes on an extra allure during the winter season. Deep red, rich burgundy, and soft blush hues create an opulent atmosphere, evoking feelings of love, passion, and elegance. These versatile blooms effortlessly complement any wedding theme, from classic to contemporary, and add a touch of luxury to every arrangement. Roses can be kept in their classic, natural shape or the petals can be reflexed. This involves splaying the petals open gently to reveal a whole new look that’s very on-trend and a captivating addition to any arrangement.
