Struggling for ideas on how to pick your wedding flowers? This glorious photoshoot from Hungerton Hall will give you some ideas for a chic romantic wedding theme in early autumn.
The secluded venue has the most stunning views and of course the classic Georgian country house makes for a great backdrop. It was so exciting to be part of a photoshoot in such an idyllic location. The reception marquee is on the lawn with views of the countryside and of the gardens, so the wedding flowers needed to reflect this setting.
Romantic elegance for your centerpieces
The table centerpiece uses imported and seasonal British flowers in creams and blush to create an elegant feel. The stunning central flowers are dahlias and these are a seasonal flower perfect for September. These are complimented by roses, which can be ethically sourced, and more British flowers in the delicate snapdragons and cosmos. Together with the classic table styling in white and gold a very romantic wedding theme is created.
Chic wedding bouquet
But autumn is not just about cream and blush wedding flowers. If you want rich jewel colours dahlias can do this as well! This unique wedding flower bouquet uses velvety red dahlias mixed with coral roses and lots of birch leaves sourced from the venue. Just using small pops of colour makes a dramatic difference. The overall look is completed by coordinating with hair and makeup. The rich lipstick and smoky eyes draw the whole look together in a way that is chic but still classic with a lace dress.
Oh and of course sunshine helps.
None of these looks would have been possible with just flowers (as much as I would like that) it is all about your wedding team. The dress, hair, makeup, venue décor and photography all came together in such a beautiful way on this photoshoot. While this seemed all very easy to me, making it seamless was the hard work of an amazing wedding planner (and I can say that as she planned our wedding!). Such talented and creative people I can’t wait to work with again.
