October in the garden
We have had some lovely sunny days this October with lots of our trees and shrubs now showing their brilliant autumnal colours as their leaves start to turn wonderful shades of yellows, oranges and reds. Warm days mean that even the fruit on our olive trees have ripened and our woodland floor is full of mushrooms in all shapes and sizes. Autumn is indeed here!
With beautiful sunrises and sunsets, October is a wonderful and colourful month and certainly a lovely month for a wedding. Think rich and opulent colours contrasted with earthy tones of soft greens and browns with mellow candlelight and luxurious fruits for a bountiful feel – gorgeous.
Flowers for weddings in October
Our hydrangeas have been stunning this month and have slowly been turning the most wonderful shades of blue and green with an antique feel. This month, our in-house florist Penny of Crown House Flowers made an elegant garland using these wonderful flowers. Garlands at weddings can be used in many different ways to decorate door arches, marquee poles and even as a runner to decorate tables ready for a wedding breakfast.
Penny also used viburnum with it’s glossy black berries, silver eucalyptus and purple verbena to create this garland. Similar flowers and foliage were also used to create a gorgeous hand-tied bridal bouquet.
