I’ve only been home from Northbrook Park, located in Surrey, for 24 minutes and have been greeted by my very over excited cocker spaniel, surprisingly noticed a seasonal lamb dish simmering away in the slow cooker, drank a glass of well deserved red wine and have jumped straight onto the MAC to download my photos from todays wedding…
I just couldn't wait any longer to share this massively romantic autumnal flower scheme with you.
I have been looking forward to creating this flower scheme for most of the year. I love autumn … the colours, scent and when Sarah and James first came to me with their mood board and ideas, I just couldn't contain my excitement.
The brief - 'romantic, autumnal, but no reds, oranges and certainly no pumpkins!' Well, I soon twisted their arms when I introduced white pumpkins and gourds to the drawing board.
The scheme soon developed into a loose, organic, romantic style with autumnal hues of cappuccino, peach, ivory, browns, golds, blush pinks and pale blues, softened with grey/silver textured foliage and bought together with champagne gold/mercury glassware. Mood lighting was created by gold crackle t-lights and taller vintage brass candlesticks, also adding additional height to the tables.
Attention to detail was key to this scheme, it was all about bringing the 'outside in'. Moss, natural foraged bark, fruit and nuts all played a huge part in creating the organic look. Where possible, I used English grown flowers, including one of my personal favourites, the gorgeous Heritage Rose. This beautifully formed blush pink English Rose has an amazing sweet scent that instantly fills any room.
Every table centre was unique, a low design created from a different wooden vessel or seasoned oak log, I certainly tested my other half's woodwork skills on this wedding!
Our day at Northbrook Park, was made even more pleasurable working alongside the very talented Caper and Berry and Simpson Photography.
Now, best sign off to go and watch 'Strictly'!!
