What flowers are blooming in late June?

Hi I wonder if anyone could give me some advice please. We have shrubs and some trees becoming established in our young garden(6 yrs) but we are getting married in June and I would like the garden to look full of colour for our party. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can plant that will give colour of all heights?
I would love it to look like a cottage garden but know that isn't possible but also I did want to avoid bedding plants everywhere. I love gerberas, michelmas daisies, lupins, delphiniums (which always get eaten) and the roses will hopefully be in bloom.
Many thanks Poppy

Ah, but it is possible to have a cottage garden look by June..... in late February or early March, sprinkle packets of California poppies, shirley poppies, sweet alyssum, and maybe annual candytuft everywhere you see bits of bare earth - (turn it over lightly before you sprinke seed, but don't cover the seeds with dirt, unless you can throw spare handfuls of sand very lightly on top. )All of these should be in bloom by June, if planted early. Maybe even bachelor buttons might bloom that early if planted at the same time. Some rarer annuals that bloom quickly from seed include California baby blue eyes, and egg foam flower. Also linaria will bloom quickly from seed.
