Blush and burgundy – seasonal flowers and feathers for a September wedding at Blackwell Grange

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 main focal flowers were locally grown dahlias, including the stunning blush Cafe Au Lait and velvety burgundy Karma Choc and Arabian Night. I also added burgundy Scabious, the last of the sweet pea flowers and Chocolate Cosmos – which does actually smell like cocoa!!

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.

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.

Their ceremony took place in a teeny church in Barton on the Heath in Warwickshire. With as many guests as they could fit in there wasn’t much space for massive pedestal arrangements so we kept the floral decoration simple, but beautiful with a garland of Autumnal foliage including Cotinus, Eucalyptus and hops on the old sandstone arch providing the perfect frame for them to say their vows.

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
