Pretty pastels, hops and hydrangeas at Homme House

Posted on March 2nd, 2016

Apparently Spring is on it’s way but as I write this it’s lashing down with rain and blowing a gale so this pretty pastel wedding from last September in the fabulous setting of Homme House is just the tonic needed to brighten the day!

The images from the day beautifully captured by Russell Lewis Photography have a real lightness and grace to them, perfectly summing up the classic but natural feel of the day.

Faye and Tom chose a subtle palette of creams, pale pinks and greens for their flowers, with roses, hydrangeas, waxflowers, eucalyptus and as a nod to the Autumnal season some fresh Herefordshire Hops; which I absolutely love using for both texture and colour and as something a little different from the usual foliage.

Faye’s bouquet was a loose, organic hand-tied design, with the key flowers plus snapdragons and fountain grasses to add movement. I particularly love the flowing shapes and soft sage colour of the eucalyptus foliage.

The beautiful bridesmaids had smaller versions of Faye’s bouquet, which looked really pretty against their pale minty green dresses.

The gents buttonholes were a another favourite combination of flowers, foliage and feathers! I used hops, wax flowers, berries and pheasant feathers and added a little spray rose from Faye’s bouquet into the grooms buttonhole.

A wedding at Homme House wouldn’t be complete without one of my signature heart wreaths on the imposing front door and this one has become one of my all-time favourites! The pretty greens and pinks and all the textures from the hops, hydrangeas, dainty waxflowers and perfect spray roses just came together beautifully and I really didn’t want to part with it!!

Another classic feature at Homme House is their stunning spiralled staircase, which I decorated with full hop bines and big, blowsy hydrangea heads in pastel pinks and greens. I also used hop bines and hydrangeas to create a fabulous archway at the church, which I also decorated with pews ends, a pedestal arrangement and arrangements for the windowsills which were moved back to Homme House for the reception. I also created a long, low arrangement for the top table whilst Faye’s mum created table centres with flowers I’d supplied.

So I hope these lovely images have brightened your day and shown that Autumnal weddings don’t have to be orange to look beautifully seasonal and elegant.

Thanks go to Faye and Tom for letting me share their perfect day and of course to Russell Lewis for allowing me to use his images, if you love his style as much as I do then do pop across to his website at www.russelllewisphotography.co.uk to see more of his work and book him for your big day!

If your dream wedding is at a country house in the rolling Herefordshire countryside then you simply must take a look at Homme House – it couldn’t be a more perfect setting and the owners Jocelyn, John and Charlie are fabulous in truly letting it become your own for the day, I highly recommend! www.hommehouse.co.uk

I’ve included a few more of my own images of the ceremony and reception flowers below, by no means the professional quality of Russell’s but simply because I had to share more from this beautiful wedding!!
