I love the colours of autumn and was delighted to work on Fayeza’s wedding flowers in October that incorporated the wonderful colours of the season. Above you can see the ceremony flowers that I delivered and set up in the Orangery at Stoneleigh Abbey.
The bride chose ivory roses and freesias and I teamed these with burnt orange cymbidium orchids, deep red anigozanthos and brown scabiosa seed heads. Above you can see the teardrop shower bouquet that I designed for Fayeza, she was keen to have a small neat bouquet that was packed full of flowers.
The wedding ceremony took place in the beautiful Orangery at Stoneleigh Abbey nestled on the side of the Abbey and overlooking the river. Two large pedestal arrangements work perfectly in here as they add colour and fragrance to the ceremony room as well as filling the space around the ceremony area. I also placed their top table arrangement on the ceremony table. The Autumnal colours worked perfectly in here with the stone walls, ivory chair covers and white aisle carpet.
All of these ceremony arrangements were then moved to the wedding breakfast in the Saloon at the Abbey. The couple also employed us to collect all of the flowers at the end of the evening to take them to a second ceremony the following day.
in the photo above you can see how I set them up the following day for a large family celebration. We always help couple to plan how they can maximise the use of their flowers as they are so beautiful and will last for many days. These were finally collected and delivered to Fayeza’s mother’s house to enjoy and the bride said they were still lasting after 7 days!
