Floral trends come and go but a green and white colour palette never seems to date - especially a green and white floral theme that embraces seasonal flowers. There is something so beautifully timeless, elegant and fresh about a white and green colour scheme for wedding flowers - and the style of floristry and choice of blooms can take it from classic right through to wild and natural. We offer both ‘ready-to-wear’ wedding flowers, which can be delivered throughout most of the UK or bespoke wedding flowers. Our personalised wedding flowers are created for you either by the team in our London flower shops or the florists on our Hampshire farm workshop, who can work on weddings and events anywhere in the UK.

As sustainable English flower farmers and florists our aim is to let the flowers do the talking and we pride ourselves on the flowers we grow, which are brimming with natural character and that all-important ingredient, scent. You can browse our ‘ready-to-wear’ wedding flowers collection here which includes: bridal bouquets, bridesmaid’s posies, buttonholes, flower crowns and floral displays for your venue. Our readymade wedding flowers are perfect if you want to enjoy the impact and style of our seasonal and scented flowers but do not want the extra cost of a full bespoke service.

Here we have shared some of our favourite white flowers by season for inspiration. All of our flowers are grown on our British Flower Farms or our sister farm in Kenya. Our Hampshire Flower Farm has just completed its 2021 carbon audit and is now making a positive impact of the environment, it also holds a LEAF Marque for sustainable farming practices. Our Kenyan farm operates to the highest possible social and environmental standards and has achieved a Gold Standard for the second year in a row as part of a pioneering UN environmental initiative. So when choosing The Real Flower Company you can be confident about the provenance and sustainability of your wedding flowers.


SPRING

Our scented English Peas are grown naturally under glass in our dedicated West Sussex nursery and it is often the white and ivory Sweet Peas that are the first to bloom. English Sweet Peas lend themselves so beautifully to a British wedding with their unique shape and exquisite scent. Ruffled Ranunculus and eye-catching Anemones are also popular choices for weddings and Foxgloves and Lupins can add height and drama.

Spring is also the time when English Lily of the Valley comes into bloom, and is even more special because of its fleeting season. These perfectly formed bell-shaped flowers, with their heady, unmistakable scent are always such a pleasure for our team to work with, knowing the joy they will bring.

SUMMER

Summer on the farm is always such a feast for the senses and our team have an abundance of choice for summer weddings. Each week, or sometimes each day, more flowers come into bloom. It is during the summer that our scented English roses take centre stage including Margaret Merrill - the rose that inspired our founder Rosebie Morton to set up The Real Flower Company. Margaret Merrill makes the perfect centrepiece for wedding flowers with her understated but beautiful form, ivory blush petals and unforgettable scent. There are so many beautifully textured and aromatic herbs that perfectly compliment a green and white colour scheme including different varieties of Mint, Sage, Geranium, Dill, Silver Lavender and Basil.

WINTER

Our partnership with Tambuzi - our sister Kenyan farm puts us in a unique position to offer sustainably grown, carbon neutral scented roses throughout the year. Tambuzi have been chosen as one of a small number of growers of David Austin’s cut roses for weddings and events and we are David Austin’s chosen UK florist for bouquets. Brides often request David Austin’s quintessential white English rose Patience. David Austin’s new rose Leonora, a cupped cream rose with beautiful ruffled blooms, is also proving popular. Vitality, White O’Hara and Jeanne Moreau roses also work beautifully with a white and cream colour scheme. Then layering spray roses such as Alabaster, Exclusive Sensation and Snow Ballet adds interest.

Early in the year scented English Paperwhites are in bloom. Hellebores, Hyacinths, Ranunculus and Anemones can also be found in shades of white and cream.
