I love autumn flowers – the rich reds, oranges and yellows. I’ve been dying to showcase some autumnal wedding flower arrangements (even though I am acutely aware that we’re now moving on to the cusp of autumn/ winter!) so I was pretty happy when I got these lovely pics from Planet Flowers. I feature their work quite a lot on LMW because quite simply I love it and also they always seem to use seasonal and local flowers and foliage.
This wedding was on the 14th November at Drumtochty Castle, an award winning wedding venue in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Gemma from Planet Flowers explains how they created these lovely arrangements, which flowers they chose and why.
This was the brides bouquet, the bride LOVED twinkle!! This bouquet is all Stephanotis, a true bridal flower with an amazing scent. We used an under planting of white hydrangea and as the bride wasn’t too keen on greenery we used an under planting of tight gypsophila to finish the bouquet. As the bridle loved sparkles and twinkles we added diamantes in to some of the Stephanotis so it twinkled when the light caught it.
As the bridesmaid was wearing chocolate we wanted her bouquet to be the start of the autumnal theme, rather than a traditional mixed bouquet we made almost a bulls eye design! Using burnt orange Ranunculus for the centre with a surround of orange orchids and then Hypericum.
The finish of a bridal bouquet is so important – we used gorgeous autumnal ivy to finish the bouquet with chocolate satin ribbon to match her dress.
Last but not least this was the Flower girls miniature version of the bridesmaids – super cute!!
I love the bridesmaids’ and flower girl’s bouquets as they are so colourful and pretty, but also the brides bouquet is gorgeous with the white hydrangea and gypsophila.

Do you like the autumn colours or do you prefer the seasonal flowers at a summer wedding?
