Autumn Wedding Flower Inspiration

As the days become shorter and the countryside around us turns distinctly autumnal, we thought we would share with you some Autumn wedding flower inspiration.

Typically, when thinking of Autumn flowers we would generally recommend warm, rich colours in accents of orange, burgundy and red. We would also suggest the inclusion of a selection of berries, seedheads, pine cones and wheat for texture and interest and to add to the overall autumnal feel

Below are photos from a few of our September and October 2016 Brides who chose different but all equally very autumnal colour schemes for their wedding flowers

Hannah – 16th September 2016

Hannah’s bridal party arrangements consisted of orange Dahlias, Scabious Seedheads, yellow Craspedia Balls, dark red Hypericum Berries, cream Stocks, cream Spray Roses, Wheat, Umbrella Fern and Rosemary which all tied in beautifully with the differing shades of her Bridesmaids dresses

Anushka – 17th September 2016

Anushka chose dark red Dahlias, orange Roses, orange spray Roses, dark red Hypericum Berries, Pine Cones, Wheat and complimenting dark green foliage to tie in with the red dresses worn by her Bridesmaid’s. The theme continued into the Venue arrangements with led lights immersed in orange gel pearls creating a lovely autumnal ambience on the tables which were also scattered with oak leaves and pine cones

Hana – 6th October

We were delighted to supply the flowers for wedding photographer Hana’s wedding in October 2016. Burgundy Dahlias, Cosmos, Astrantia and Hypericum berries were mixed with peach Garden Roses, red Skimmea and berried Eucalyptus Populus foliage to create her stunning bouquet with the same flowers being used to fill beer bottles for her venue arrangements

Kelly & Sam who were married at St Mary’s Church in Funtington and then held their reception at Farbridge, near Chichester in August 2016 attended one of our  Open Days prior to their wedding. Whilst Kelly already had an idea of her requirements for the Bridal Party flowers, they both found the Open Day useful for choosing their venue arrangements as it enabled them to see exactly what their flowers would look like.

The photographs below courtesy of Lucy Lou Photography show all the flowers from Kelly & Sam’s wedding day and we hope you enjoy them as much as we have

Vineyard Wedding

On a grey, windy February day there is nothing better than being reminded of hot sunny days and these photographs sent to us by Hazel & Tommy have certainly achieved this.

The couple had originally booked another venue for their wedding but then had to make a last minute change and chose Three Choirs Vineyard, Wickham, Hampshire for their August 2016 wedding.

Hazel had been recommended to us by one of her friends for whom we had supplied wedding flowers the previous year.  Whilst Hazel wished the flowers to be predominantly ivory she asked us to inject some colour in the form of coral mini Gerberas  and the simplicity of all the arrangements reflected the relaxed nature of their venue.

Hazel and Tommy could not have been luckier with the weather on their wedding day with their dream of being married amongst the vines being realised.

These photographs courtesy of Tom Langford – Weddings by Tom have truly captured the happiness of the couples wedding day and have definitely brought a smile to our faces.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER’S WEDDING

One of the bonuses of working in the wedding industry is meeting fellow suppliers. One such supplier we have had the pleasure of working with on many occasions is wedding photographer Hana Venn-Richards. We were therefore honoured and delighted when Hana asked us to supply the flowers for her own wedding in October.

Hana had chosen a beautiful autumnal colour scheme of burgundy and gold and wished the relaxed atmosphere of their pub venue to be reflected in all the arrangements. Peach Garden Roses were combined with burgundy Dahlias, Scabious, Astrantia, red Skimmea, dark red Hypericum berries, brown Cosmos and Eucalyptus Populus foliage. Brown beer bottles which Hana and Matt had collected, with the help of family and friends, were filled with the same flowers and foliage and placed around the pub.

Following her wedding, Hana wrote us this lovely review –

“MY FLOWERS WERE INCREDIBLE!!!! Absolutely blew my mind. I was a little bridezilla about them (sorry…), but Sally was incredible, and seriously I didn’t need to worry! Clare is a flower creation genius, and honestly, they are better than I could have even imagined. I hardly put them down all day, people were talking about them more than me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!”
