Creating pretty bridal bouquets, table decorations and centrepieces for a winter wedding needn't be as difficult as you think. Like most good things in life, it's best to go seasonal - think: Avalanche roses, hydrangeas and narcissus. White or cream flowers contrasted with rich green foliage is a guaranteed winner, however, beautiful pastels and vintage-inspired colour palettes can also give a timeless elegance to a winter celebration.

    While light and bright flowers are best for summer bouquets, winter arrangements should be deep and romantic; roses are your best bet for getting the most elegant and subtle range of shades. Whatever season you're getting married in, Nikki recommends that your bridal bouquet should reflect how you want to feel: intimate and delicate or big and bold; it should work in harmony with your dress: think texture, fabric and size; and it should always be in proportion - arrangements should not be any bigger than your waistline.
