Rose Quartz and Serenity – Pantone colours for a vintage inspired wedding at the Curradine Barns
Posted on January 29th, 2017
Pink is always a popular colour for weddings so when colour experts Pantone picked Rose Quartz pink and a pale blue tone called Serenity for their 2016 colours of the year I could see them working beautifully as a colour palette for some of my wedding flowers.
Jonathan and Christian decided to take these colours as the basis for their late spring wedding at the Curradine Barns last May with a vintage vibe coming from lots of vintage props and decor from Pollyanna’s Party Hire. I used a mix of flowers for the pink tones including roses, astilbe, stocks, freesia and lisianthus whilst the Serenity colours came from pale blue delphiniums and hydrangea.
The grooms each wore a pale pink Bombastic rose buttonhole with astilbe, gypsophila and hypericum berries. The rest of the chaps had simple rose and eucalyptus buttonholes, while their groomsmaids had bouquets of pink flowers as well as pink roses in their hair. I also made corsages for the ladies using spray roses and gyposphila.
The beautiful barns were decorated throughout with flowers starting with a vintage bicycle welcoming guests with a basketful of blooms. Inside vintage glass bottles with single stems were dotted about the bar and around the table plan, styled with a vintage globe and postcard guest book.
In the ceremony room I placed white metal jugs of flowers along aisle and two large pedestal arrangements in vintage milk churns either side of the registrars table.
The table centres for the reception were in a ‘just picked’ style in a mismatched selection of vintage tins from Polly, placed on log slices to give a little bit of height with more vintage glass bottles dotted between.
The Curradine Barns really do lend themselves to a rustic country wedding so I hope these few images have provided a little inspiration. If you’re having a vintage inspired wedding then using original props is a great way to style your wedding and Polly has a vast selection!
