Q. I am planning my wedding this year and would love to have some inspirational ideas for my flowers. Can you suggest some different varieties, colours and arrangements?

A. Fiona Porter says: Homegrown flowers like those that I supply from my garden in Dursley, Gloucestershire, are a fantastic choice for weddings. Mine are all natural, sustainable and wildlife-friendly. Yellow is proving to be a popular colour – especially for summer weddings – while wild varieties to create large, country-style bouquets are always a popular choice. Arrangements such as floral chandeliers are on-trend and flower crowns, floral horseshoes and wrist corsages are always good choices.
