Vintage Wedding Flowers at Wellington College in Berkshire
This beautiful vintage wedding at Wellington College in Berkshire was a gorgeous mix of colours, straight out of a classic still-life painting, with beautiful table styling in rich golds and silver over Tiffany Blue, and all very reminiscent of faded chateaux opulence.
Sarah, the very creative bride is also the founder of wedding planning business Three Graces, and used her impeccable taste and eye for detail to plan her big day! She opted for a varied mix of rich flowers shades, a wilder style of flowers and some beautiful table accessories which really brought the theme together.
For the bouquets we used many shades of roses, from blush, through pale peaches and creams to dusky pinks and moody vintage lilacey pinks. We added wilder style flowers such as plum astrantia, brunnia berries, feathery astilbe, ornamental cabbages, eucalyptus and mimosa. The men wore cream Wedding Rose buttonholes with brunnia berries and mimosa sprigs, and the mums wore lapel corsages of creamy peach lisianthus and spray roses.
The wedding ceremony was held in the stunning chapel at Wellington College, which was dressed with 2 silver urns focal centrepieces either side of the altar. On the altar, we styled Sarah’s vintage silver leaf eternal love swans vases, with loose unstructured displays of flowers.
Across the courtyard, the wedding breakfast was held in the beautifully ornate library, which was dressed with a mix of tall and low centrepieces to keep things interesting while adding impact high up, to echo the room’s tall ceilings. The guest tables were covered in beautiful Tiffany Blue table cloths and laid with gold rimmed charger plates and glassware, all by Jones Hire. Sarah added beautifully gilded pears as table name holders and wedding favours. The beautiful wedding cake was supplied by Debbie at The Sugar Box in Crowthorne.
