CHILLINGTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS
Rachael and Ashley were married in August last year at the stunning Chillington Hall. Chillington Hall is a beautiful Georgian country house in Staffordshire. For their flowers their overall colour scheme was vintage tones of creams and dusky pinks colours, they loved the Sweet Avalanche and Memory Lane roses so we used these throughout their day.
BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ DUSKY PINK & CREAM ROSES
For Rachael’s bridal bouquet we created a hand tied bouquet of roses in dusky pinks and creams, we tied this with satin ivory ribbon with an overlay of lace to tie in with her stunning wedding dress.
Her bridesmaids had small bouquets of ivory Avalanche Roses again tied with ivory ribbon. I love how the bouquets have been captured and what a wonderful setting Chillington Hall is for a truly romantic wedding.
CHILLINGTON HALL ~ WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS
For the wedding ceremony at Chillington we scattered fresh rose petals down either side of the aisle and tied a single rose head to each chair as well as the bride and groom’s chairs. The ceremony took place in The Saloon, with soaring ceilings and a magnificent chandelier so these subtle decorations were all that was needed. For the ceremony table itself we created an arrangement filled with cream and dusky pink roses with eucalyptus to trail.
CHILLINGTON HALL ~ WEDDING CENTREPIECES
For the centrepieces in the Marquee at Chillington Rachael loved out large silver candelabra as well as our footed vases. We alternated the tables with each of these. The tall candelabra added wow factor and height to the flowers which were noticed by guests as they entered the marquee and the lower footed bowls added variation. The footed bowls were filled with pearls and had a mix of ivory and dusky pink roses, freesias and eucalyptus. A similar mix of flowers were used in the candelabra.
Around the base of the vases we placed our vintage style silver and glass tea light holders which look stunning when lit as they cast wonderful shadows on the table.
For their table plan Rachael and Ashley used our vintage birdcage which we decorated with posies of roses. Rachael enjoyed planning her romantic wedding and we were delighted to be part of her day.
