An Autumn Wedding in London

Today we’re sharing a wedding full of classical floral designs with a modern twist. The colour palette of rich reds and deep pinks gave a glorious nod to Autumn, brightening up the occasion despite being the rainiest day ever…

Starting outside the restored, grade 2 listed building, Holy Trinity Clapham, we designed a door arch to sing above the happy couple whilst having their photos taken. Made up of the large and sturdy, multi-layered petals of the Avalanche Rose, the soft, pastel-pink Sweet Avalanche Rose, the purple-berry toned Bleuberry Rose, large gentian-like flowers of Lisianthus and complete with thick-lobed, glossy green leaves of Ivy.

Inside the richly designed church, we created statement urns to surround Becca and Matt during the exchanging of vows. The Avalanche Rose, Sweet Avalanche Rose, Lisianthus and Bleuberry Rose all made another appearance, complemented by the abundant, pom-pom shape of Hydrangea, graceful blooms and sweet scented flowers of Stocks, ruffled-edged, subtly-shaded Snapdragon, evergreen Eucalyptus and bunched Oak Leaves. We transported the urns to the reception venue to continue the floral designs. The Royal Automobile Club - a private member’s club in the iconic central London location of Pall Mall, had such opulent decor and old-fashioned charm, we just loved it!

For Becca’s bouquet, we selected highly fragrant florals so that she will always remember her wedding day when she smells the flowers. Again, Lisianthus and Eucalyptus were carefully placed, this time amongst some paler petals. Our absolute favourite, the White O’Hara with its’ blush-tone, strong and fruity scent and traditional Rose shape looked perfect next to another of our favourites, the petite, multi-headed Bombastic Spray Rose. The fragrant, evergreen Rosemary shrub and its’ needle-like leaves pulled it all together into a delicate, hand-tied bouquet which looked beautiful next to the lace on Becca’s dress. The finishing touch is also an emblem of remembrance, making this bridal bouquet an extra special piece of the day.

Becca’s two bridesmaids each had a hand-tied bouquet too, this time with the deeper, ruffled-petals of the Bleuberry Rose - a unique colour which couldn’t have been a better match for their dresses. To keep consistent with the bride’s bouquet, we continued the use of Lisianthus and Eucalyptus, also selecting the Sweet Avalanche Rose, Avalanche Rose and Rosemary as seen in our other designs around the venue. Each flower throughout the wedding was chosen not only for their beauty and colour, but for what they represent - happiness, gratitude and lasting bonds of affection.

From buttonholes to pew ends and the fireplace to the cake, we wrapped up this stunning wedding with just a few, simple selections in keeping with the door arch, urns and bouquets. Becca and Matt are such a fun-loving couple who were fabulous to work with. We’re delighted with how the arrangements turned out for their special day.
