Autumnal Wedding in Devon

Jess & Rick, Huntsham Court, Devon

In September last year we created flowers in the beautiful Huntsham Court in Devon for Jess and Rick. Jess and Rick's colour palette was packed with autumnal shades and textures, with burnt orange Rudbeckia, burgundy blowsy Roses and delicate cream Dahlias. Jess's bouquet was accented with speckled toad Lilies and trailing Cobaea vines. 
Her bridesmaids carried bouquets and had wrist corsages both wrapped in vibrant blue silk.

In the church in the grounds of Huntsham we created two large statement urn arrangements, each with tumbling vines, golden amaranth and tall fluffy grasses. 

The long tables for the wedding breakfast were decorated with central vase arrangements and vines with ivy draped along each table, intertwined around the flowers.

In the large entrance hall we wrapped wild garlands around each pillar and created natural upright meadows at the base with a matching installation piece on the fireplace.

The buttonholes were also tied with blue silk ribbon, and the groom's Scottish heritage was celebrated with a single blue thistle in his buttonhole.

Buttonhole Obsession

Buttonholes are easily my favourite things to make, hence why I am always sneaking round my flower patch searching for the best tiny blooms to use, they are miniature wearable bouquets!

Faye & Dan - Pampas Heaven

The wedding of Dan & Faye, September 19th 2015. 

It's an amazing feeling when a Bride gives you free rein, armed with a colour palette of dusky pink, white and the late summer seasons this is what was created. The 10 bridesmaids were a slightly daunting task...
