I have the most beautiful Huntsham Court Wedding Flowers to share with you today! Holly and Charles were married in December surrounded by stunning winter wedding flowers. I adore a winter wedding and Huntsham Court is the perfect venue with its huge roaring fire and stunning table candelabra. This super stylish black tie wedding was a joy to flower, and a big thank you to Matt Bowen Photography for these incredible photos sharing a snapshot into this happy day.
If you are planning a winter wedding then texture is key to your flowers, there is a huge abundance of seasonal foliage around which can help you complete this. Holly opted for an elegant, stylish palette of all ivory seasonal blooms with the direction to use plenty of foliage! I used blowsy white ranunculus, scented narcissi, anemone with large headed roses too. Foliage wise, scent plays a big part in winter too, with pine and fir bringing that unique smell. Being a late December wedding, Holly wanted her wedding flowers to feel wintery and not Christmassy, so this allowed me to keep my flower choices in that elegant, neutral palette of ivory and green.
The bridesmaids wore dark forest green satin dresses so the ivory flowers looked stunning, and Holly's dress is by one of the prettiest and most glamorous dresses I have seen! The boys looked super smart is black tie, which compliments the big country house of Huntsham Court perfectly. You can really be creative with Huntsham Court wedding flowers as the house has so many beautiful rooms to decorate.
If you are getting married at Huntsham Court then you have the fabulous backdrop of the giant stone fireplace! I have dressed this with flowers on many occasion, but Holly wanted to create some serious impact here. The whole mantel was adorned with overflowing ivory florals and huge amounts of tumbling foliage. I used big branches of dried honesty which has a pearlescent look to it, which shimmered in the candlelight. Winter amaryllis were in season so I carefully placed these in as large focal flowers, grouping them to create maximum impact. Blowsy roses trailed throughout the design and I cannot fail to mention the large varieties of foliage I used. Ivy, fir, pine, scented eucalytpus all provide that winter scent when warm above the fire, which filled the Great Hall.
When thinking about your ceremony wedding flowers, I always encourage my couples to go for a large statement arrangement, such as this mantelpiece. By dressing this area in a beautiful way, you create such impact, a great backdrop for flowers and you can really make the most of these flowers throughout the whole day. Items like chair posies are pretty, but I always think it is better to put your floral budget together to create less, ore impactful designs that lots of smaller posies or florals dotted around the venue.
When working on Hunsham Court wedding flowers, I am lucky enough to be able to use their candelabra. The house has a big selection of beautiful brass candelabra, which can be flowered in a variety of ways. Candelabra work perfectly for a winter wedding. Whereas in a summer wedding you may opt for more floral arrangements such as overflowing low bowls, or glass vases. A winter wedding lends itself to candlelight and warm, so utilise the onsite candelabra! Here we simply used foliage to adorn the candelabra. Trailing fern and eucalyptus is a simple, yet effective way to add interest to the candelabra.
