In recent years, wedding bookings seem to be ever increasing through the later months of October and November, partly due to unseasonal warmer days that we can experience at this late time of year.
As a florist who focuses on the beauty of the changing seasons within our great British surroundings I couldn't recommend these months more highly. This transitional time between late September and early November really is so pretty, from the sunny, bright and busy season of Summer into the warm, vibrant and serene time of Autumn
Autumn brings the most beautiful colours. In fact I think it may be my favorite of all the seasons.
Strong words I know, given that all the seasons bring their own beauty and magic, but when autumn is in full swing, the landscapes literally glow, with the most striking and vibrant colours.
I have been permanently fixated on every drive through the country or walk through the park.
Before the tree's begin to drop, we decided to get out and capture some of these incredible colours in an inspirational bridal shoot.
With an incredibly talented bunch of individuals, we put together some ideas and took to Gosfield Park to create our Autumn Bride, and despite the rather rainy day... the results were glorious
The bouquet was created using golden dahlia, dusky pink trachelium, waxflower and dried poppy seed heads and an abundance of beautiful autumnal leaves and branches which I foraged from the woods. The crown was made using foraged yellow leaves, waxflower buds and dried mini poppy seed heads, with a few sprigs of golden sprayed limonium flower
I hope this beautiful shoot has inspired some of you to book that autumnal wedding!
