Winter is the perfect season to warm-up your bridal style and reception décor with fragrant and bold blooms.

Melissa from Melissa Jane Flower Studio tends to lean towards warmer hues in the cooler months, saying, “colours like rich berry reds blended with soft dusky pinks and deep greens, these work beautifully, especially in candle light, for a romantic winter wedding.“

When it comes to foliage, Melissa loves to use a mix ­– "from gorgeous deep greens to soft greys, which help blend together colours and textures". Winter brings a vast selection of foliage to choose from, but her top picks are Eucalyptus, Viburnum Berry and Pieris.

For blooms perfect for a winter bouquets, here are Melissa’s favourites:

  1. Ranunculus - for a velvety texture which is available in so many colours

  2. Freesia - a classic favourite which adds a beautiful fragrance

  3. Protea - be it Pink Ice or the King Protea, be bold and make a statement with these beauties
