If you are looking for wedding flowers at The Mount Without then I am delighted to share with you these incredible inspiration images from Laura Wade Photography. The most stunning venue ran by Michele Jetzer, you have never seen anything like it. An old church restored with so much love and attention to detail, it really is the most stylish venue you could wish to get married in. Sarah the wedding stylist at Stories of Events, and Laura created the most beautiful concept, from which I was delighted to be involved.
I created a stunning floral arch for the ceremony space, filled with natural British foliage branches such as Beech and Birch. The foliage offered a soft and elegant look, complimenting the beautiful stained glass window and aged walls perfectly. I added in clusters of blousy ivory roses, armfuls of cow parsley and spirea blossom branches to lighten the foliage. In a stunning venue like The Mount Without, I adore the simplicity of a foliage arch like this one. Candlelight throughout the base of the arch adds an air of romance and atmosphere to the ceremony too.
When deciding which wedding flowers at The Mount Without to use I wanted to keep the bouquets stylish, elegant and modern with a neutral palette. I used muted cappuccino roses, blousy white ranunculus with lots of sweet peas and tiny blossom to add texture. I decided against using foliage within the bouquets to focus solely on the beauty of the flowers. With such an embellished dress foliage would have looked a little too textured and the trend towards floral only bouquets is one that I wanted to embrace.
If you are contemplating using more modern wedding florals then these inspiration images are the perfect inspiration. This tablescape is a timeless yet super stylish look, filled with overflowing bowls of ivory blooms in a structured, yet romantic design. Tall ivory candles in black candlesticks, soft grey linen and plenty of candlelight is the most beautiful combination for wedding flowers at The Mount Without.
Low table decorations work wonderfully on long tables such as these, place them sporadically throughout the centre of the tables. Amongst beautiful candles, votives, glassware this will create the most stunning look for your guests to enjoy throughout the wedding breakfast. Low floral bowls also are great for round tables too, the candles will sit around the flowers in the centre of the table.
Floor standing arrangements placed behind the top table, offer a great way of softening the backdrop here. The foliage branches and cow parsley bring so much texture and softness against the stone walls, creating a more intimate space. They are versatile too, the great thing about the Mount is that it is a huge space, so florals can be placed alongside the steps during the ceremony and then moved afterwards to create a different look for your wedding reception.
I hope you have enjoyed my modern wedding inspiration a The Mount Without, wedding flowers can completely transform a venue and are hugely important in adding atmosphere to your big day. As an expert wedding florist I have years of experience in working in such stunning venues, so am able to advise on what works best and where!
