Autumn wedding at the Wootton Hall Estate, England

You are currently viewing Autumn wedding at the Wootton Hall Estate, England

Our London based couple knew they wanted to return to the countryside for their Autumn wedding. The Wootton Hall Estate was the perfect match, just a few miles from the Bride’s childhood home. Blending English garden charm with the high standards of service and award winning food they have come to expect in the capital.

Autumn wedding flower brief

The brief for this wedding was light and whimsical in all the colours of autumn. The Bride particularly loved flowers and wanted include both fresh and dried seasonal flowers.

What we loved the most

It is so difficult to choose one thing. The meadow aisle floral installation for the outdoor wedding ceremony was incredibly special; the afternoon light just caught it perfectly as the guests arrived to take their seats. The fairy grotto ceiling installation across the beams in the barn was also beautiful. It was strewn with twinkling lights and branches of jewel like crab apples. O’s bridal bouquet is still one of our all time favourites. Balancing elegance and romance with whimsy and perfectly coordinating with her dress.

Yet, in so many ways it was working with O and D that made this wedding truly steal our hearts. From the first meeting they were keen to hear how their ideas could be transformed into a reality and adored how the flowers would be grown just for them by our local speciality flower farmers. The trust they placed in us to deliver their vision was everything and we made sure we gave everything in return.

Sustainability focus

There are many ways in which wedding flowers can be made more sustainable without compromising on style or aesthetics.

Around half the flowers for this wedding were English grown – a challenge in itself in October. This is right at the end of the growing season and frosts can kill a crop overnight. While there are few reliable statistics, the data that exists suggests English grown flowers have one tenth of the carbon footprint of imported flowers.

In addition, no floral foam was used and almost no single use plastic was used. The only single use plastic was tape and cable ties. All the waste was separated with flowers going to compost and all paper and cardboard recycled. Literally a few handfuls of plastic and rubbish were binned.
