November wedding flowers

Inspiration for a winter wedding

November was a busy month for weddings and it is a lovely time of year to get married. The autumn colours are still holding on yet we are starting to see the winter/spring flowers arriving so there is plenty to choose from. Below are 4 weddings from this November – all completely different!

Ha & Minh, The Grand Brighton

This was an intimate set up at The Grand with one long table full of flowers! We decorated one long table with candelabra full of roses and hydrangeas, shorter vases of flowers, tealights and a foliage and rose table runner.

Holly & Rick, Hotel du Vin Brighton

A gorgeously scented bouquet of eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary and waxflower with mixed foliages and succulents. Holly’s bouquet was full of texture and fragrance. Rick and the ushers had mini succulent buttonholes with a hint of dried lavender and eucalyptus to wear.

Charlotte & Guy, Pangdean Barn Brighton

This wedding took place at one of my favourite venues, Pangdean Barn. It’s a great venue for each season but I think really lends itself to Autumn as it has such a cosy feel with all of the twinkly fairy lights in the ceiling and the glow of the candles all around. This time of year is great as some of the winter spring flowers have started to arrive and you’ve also got some autumn treats going strong too. Below we have, orchids, spray roses, astilbe, roses, euphorbia, ranunculus, antirrhinum, alstroemeria and astilbe with a mix of beautiful Irish foliage including pittosporum and eucalyptus.

Jemma & Chris, Long Furlong Barn Worthing

On a gorgeous sunny day on the last weekend of November these two beauties tied the knot. Long Furlong Barn is such a beautiful venue with the most stunning views of the surrounding countryside! For Jemma’s bouquet we used some lovely winter flowers including anemones, tulips, white roses, calla lilies, chincherinchee and big glossy green leaves.

Ruth and Greg’s tropical disco theme wedding flowers

Summer brights in Barcombe!

I love all the weddings I do as each and every one is individually special. It is lovely the way that flowers can add extra personality to an event and everyone’s personalities are a different. So when a wedding like Ruth and Greg’s comes along it is extra exciting as their style choice was right up my street! I don’t need to be asked twice to go for it with tropical style colours and flowers! I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this wedding, from choosing which bright and fabulous blooms to fill the tropical fruit tins to setting up on a beautiful summers day with retro 90’s dance tunes blasting out of the sound system whilst they tested it all out (it was definitely working!)

Here’s a few pictures for you to enjoy from their day to help you remember the beautiful Summer which seems like so long ago now it’s raining and Autumnal!

I used a mix of bright flowers with a Tropical feel to them including one of my favourites, Sandersonia (the Chinese lantern style flower) which I don’t get to work with very often. There’s asclepsia, dendrobium orchid, zinnias, asparagus fern, antirrhinum, germini and hot pink carnations in these cool tins.

I love the simple stylish bridesmaids dresses paired with their colourful wrist corsages.


The Anchor Inn (near Lewes) is such a beautiful venue, I love how you can go boating on your wedding day!

 What a lovely couple. Congratulations Ruth and Greg!
