Dusty blues & pinks at Farnham Castle wedding

Beautiful dusty blues & pinks wedding flowers

For Leah and Aaron’s wedding, I absolutely loved the dusty blue and pink wedding flowers mix we created. The wedding was at historic Farnham Castle, with the ceremony in the beautifully light Lantern Hall.  With a grand arched recess  behind the ceremony table and fantastic deep arched windows along one side, the room is so impressive and stunning, dressing it with flowers is an absolute pleasure.  

Leah and her bridesmaids carried bouquets of dusty blue hydrangeas, blush & dusty pink roses, blue thistles and sage green eucalyptus., with grey brunnia berries.  The feature flowers were gorgeously scented O’Hara garden roses in a delicate shade of ivory with a hint of blush, these are my absolute all time favourite rose varieties, every time I walk past them in the workshop I stop to take a little sniff. Arron and the key men wore ivory rose buttonholes with thistles and spray rose detail, which looked great against the dark blue, almost navy suits. 

The ceremony room was dressed with 4 tall impressive floral displays on gold stands, and the windowsills were styled with alternating lanterns, and floral wreaths with a candlelit lantern in the middle. The ceremony table was also dressed with 2 candlelit wreaths, giving enough of them that they could be later reused as table centrepieces on half of the guest tables. And finally, the chairs were dressed with pretty floral posies on every other row and styled with Grecian style chair sashes with a sprig of eucalyptus tucked in.  Petals scatter down the aisle completed the look for the ceremony

For the wedding breakfast in the Great Hall, the dusty blue and pink combination with lots of foliage looked really lovely with the table napkins styling.  The top table was dressed with the bridesmaids bouquets and the chair flower posies, connected by lovely trailing foliage, while the rest f the guest tables were styled with a mix candlelit wreaths and tall geometric stands centrepieces from the ceremony room.  The pièce de résistance was a beautiful long floral display for the grand mantlepiece behind the top table, extended all the way to the edges with trailing foliage and candles – such a beautiful backdrop to the top table, especially during speeches. 

Overall we really enjoyed this dusty blue and pinks colour scheme and love the fact that it would look equally well at a summer wedding or a winter wedding. I hope you’ve enjoyed the beautiful flowers in this post, beautifully captured by Tony Hart Photography, we really love Tony’s photography style – so relaxed and natural, very much like Leah and Aaron who were an absolute pleasure throughout our wedding flowers planning.
