Autumn Blues at Goldsborough Hall

Autumn is one of our favourite seasons because it presents so much opportunity for introducing texture. Traditionally, this is a season for shades of yellow and gold but this October wedding at Goldsborough Hall demonstrates how other colour palettes can work beautifully with the richness of foliage and berries.
We chose a classic colour palette of white and ivory with shades of pale blue, electric blue and lilac.
White 'Akito' roses, lilac 'Ocean Song' roses, wax flower and electric blue delphinium proved to be an elegant combination. Blue-green Echeveria succulents added textural interest.
We included plenty of texture and autumnal interest with blue eryngium thistles, deep blue viburnum berries, fresh green autumnal foliage, oak leaves, asparagus fern and ivy trails.
We were keen to arrange everything in a very natural way to complement the traditional country house style of this elegant venue and gardens.
The bride’s oversized cascading shower bouquet was finished with a large sateen ribbon bow detail with long tails added for a fun 90s feel. The ribbon was sourced from from VV Rouleux.
The stone lions at the entrance of Goldsborough Hall may not have seemed too impressed with their collars of trailing foliage and flower placements but they looked stunning and added to the sense of fun.
The theme of green autumnal foliage with oak leaves, asparagus ferm and trailing ivy was carried through to the reception where they decorated the silver candelabra. Three small flower clusters were added to the arms and base for a touch of colour, along with succulent heads.
