Blush and burgundy – seasonal flowers and feathers for a September wedding at Blackwell Grange
Posted on February 25th, 2018
Seasonality and a natural, free-flowing feel are key elements of my style when it comes to wedding flowers so when Rhian and Tom chose a blush and burgundy colour palette for their September wedding I was keen to include some beautiful Autumnal blooms throughout their day.
The soft blush colours came from palest pink roses, astilbe and some creamy waxflower. I also used lots of grey-green Eucalyptus foliages, some multi-tonal hydrangea and a slightly mauve rose called Amnesia. Autumnal ingredients like grasses, burgundy Cotinus foliage and pheasant feather completed the rustic style.
Rhian wore a dainty crown of waxflowers with ivory spray roses pinned into her beautiful up-do above her veil.
Tom wore a blue suit with a tweed waistcoat and maroon tie; set off with a buttonhole of burgundy scabious, waxflower, eucalyptus and a pheasant feather.
The reception was held back at Blackwell Grange, a stunning new venue with beautifully light converted barns and contemporary copper details.
The tables were dressed with copper jugs filled with blush and burgundy seasonal flowers, which Rhi had tied on little gift tags as thank you’s for some of the family and friends who’d helped with their day.
The top table had jugs of flowers either end, with two rustic wooden crates in front of the bride and grooms seats. We also used a couple more crates to style other areas like the card table and drinks station.
All in all a very pretty blush and burgundy wedding, right up my floral street with lots of beautiful seasonal flowers in a natural, rustic style. Thank you to Rhian and Tom for having me play a small part your big day, it really was gorgeous and perfectly captured by Katrina Bartlam who’s kindly sent me these stunning images to share – you can see more of Katrina’s work, including other weddings we’ve worked on together at www.capturedbykatrina.co.uk
