Autumn Wedding Flowers can be some of the most beautiful you can imagine! If you are getting married in September October and November the rich jewell colours and varied textures available make for stunning wedding flowers. Jen and Chris were married (a year later, thanks Covid!) at the brand new venue Syrencot at the end of October this year. Not only was I lucky enough to do the flowers, I was lucky enough to attend the wedding too as Chris is the superstar computer guy at BrisTechtonic behind all my website and his wife Jen, both good friends! What a day... here is a little snippet of their autumn wedding flowers!
The colour scheme for the flowers was based around rich autumnal tones such as burnt orange and deep red, yet adding in softer mocha, peach and the tiniest hint of pale blue to soften the look. I am a huge fan of this colour way! Stylish, sophisticated and seasonal... the perfect florals for an autumn wedding. It is important to focus on autumnal foliage, textured berries and seed heads within autumnal wedding flowers. As you can see here from the bouquets, they are just jam packed full of texture and interest!
There are so many amazing seasonal flowers around in autumn and I was lucky enough to use British grown dahlias, because we hadn't had a frost yet! Big blousy chrysanthemum blooms are an absolute must for an autumn wedding. This variety here is called 'Vienna Copper' and has been one of my favourites to use this year. It's so textured and comes in that super trendy muted mocha tone! The blooms are a large flower so by adding just one in each bouquet, you get the colour, without overwhelming the design of the bouquet.
The wedding ceremony was held inside the beautiful Orangery at Syrencot, we created a loose and natural floral arch, full of autumnal texture and blousy blooms. I adore making floral installations in situ, a floral backdrop to one of the most important and special moments of couples lives. Where they say their vows in front of friends and family! By opting for a larger statement piece such as a floral arch or two large vases/urns, more impact can be created over using maybe lots of smaller floral arrangements.
After postponing for a year, I can say that the ceremony was an emotional one, full of love and happiness and just an all round joy to experience these two people finally getting wed! After the ceremony guests moved inside to enjoy a wonderful reception. Flowers in simple vases adorned the tables, cake and behind the top table! The biggest of congratulations to Chris and Jen and thank you so much for allowing me to share your personal wedding photos! Photographer Credit: Russell How One final point... Chris and Jen did a first look! I love this idea, it gives the happy couples first chance to see each other before the ceremony, settling and nerves and capturing a super special moment between the two! You can just see the happiness in Jen's face here!! Why I do what I do.... being a tiny part of helping people celebrate their love, I know I am a lucky florist!
