Introduction

Floral Goals...

Autumn has arrived and with the season brings an array of stunning colour palettes, from burnt oranges, warm browns and rich red hues. We’re having a chat with some of our amazing ‘Cream of the Crop’ florists about their favourite bridal bouquets for Autumn…

Frond & Bloom

“A late September bouquet full of David Austin Roses, Dahlias, Zinnias and the last of the seasons Cosmos. This bouquet was full of rich warm colours. Deep pinks mixed with pops of burnt orange made for the perfect autumnal mix while still being bright and bold.”

Gigil & Bloom

“I love this bouquet because to me it represents the change of the seasons, going from those pinks and lilacs of the summer wedding season to the wilder, edgier look of autumn, the dried grasses where incorporated to give it that harvest time feel whilst keeping the romance alive with muted tone roses, ferns to give it that woodland look and all finished with a Little Acorn Silks hand-dyed ribbon in black as a nod to the duskier evenings the end of the year brings. It it contains a mix of Eucalyptus, O’Hara Roses, Dried Lagarus, Quicksand Roses, Snapdragons, Wheat, Dried Grasses, Ferns, Anemones and Lisianthus.”

Catkin Flowers

“This bouquet contains dahlias, annual phlox, snapdragons, scabious, statice, grasses, mint, atriplex. I love it because it is a real snapshot of the cutting garden late in the season- it’s very evocative of the last flowers standing – it’s floral but not summer and the grasses and tangly bits reflect exactly the feel of the garden at this time.”

Essentially Floral

“I adore this beautiful warm Autumnal bouquet, its gorgeous tones range from pampas, apricot and peach through to aubergine, suede and mocha.  Bright pops of yellow signify the romance associated with a heady Indian summer, while the delicate grasses give a nod to the carefree days when you fall in love. How could it not be the perfect choice for an Autumn bride.”

Elder & Wild

“For this bouquet I used, vanilla fraise hydrangeas, cosmos, garden roses, cafe au lair dahlias, Japanese anemones, jasmine, seed heads, grasses, astrantia, phlox, scabiosa, snapdragons, chocolate cosmos. I loved making this bouquet! It included so many of my favourites from the cutting garden and it was full of a delicious scent from the garden roses. The hydrangeas had just started turning from white to a faded pink, there were plenty of seed heads and textural foliage to be had and my cafe au lait dahlias were putting on another flush of blooms. The colours, textures and wildness of this bouquet, packed with flowers from the cutting garden, made this one a real favourite.”

Akito Floral

“This is one of my favourite Autumnal Bouquets, I love the rich berry colours and texture. Instead of the typical oranges, and reds which are used for many wedding florals during this season, my bride asked for flowers in a delicious colour palette of Raspberry, Blackberry and Blueberry to compliment the Navy Blue bridesmaids’ dresses. The inspiration for this bouquet, came from a poem, the opening line of ”Ode to Autumn”. ”Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” by John Keats. I used ‘Memory Lane’ Roses, Ranunculus, Veronica, Skimmia, Ornithogalum Arabicum, Leucadendron and Steel Berries to create this bouquet.”

Violet & Vine

“We love this beautiful, wild bouquet which was inspired by the fading blooms that signify the start of Autumn. It’s a lush arrangement with a mix of foliage including Eucalyptus, Spirea Arguta (also known as Bridal Wreath), Pussy Willow, Ammi, Moluccella, Scillia and Scabiosa Stellata. We then added two varieties of Roses – a deep dark velvety Black Baccara and a dusky pink Lullaby Rose.”
