Rich Purple & Lilac Wedding Flowers

Beautiful Wedding Flowers at Highclere Castle

These gorgeous wedding flowers at Highclere Castle were a great diversion at the end of the summer from the current trend for ivory & blush weddings.  I adored the colour combination of these opulent wedding flowers at Highclere Castle – the colour looked so dramatic in the saloon and the library! For the bridal bouquet we used a rich mix of ivory and purple hydrangeas, ivory and vintage lilac roses and spray roses, lavender, deep purple lisianthus and just a few hints of dusky lilacey pink spray roses.  The colour against the deep purple bridesmaids dresses looked stunning! The men wore buttonholes of calla lilies with deep purple lisianthus and lavender to match.  We welcomed guests to the venue by framing the entrance with two topiary bay trees with accent roses and coordinating ribbons, surrounded by storm vases with candles and rose petals.  Stephanie arranged for some huge lit up initials to be placed in the hall, and they looked spectacular!  Leading into the Saloon for the wedding ceremony, we framed the grand fireplace with two really dramatic huge urn centrepieces packed with opulent summer blooms, adding height to them with deep purple and lilac tall delphiniums.  A matching urn on the table with the seating plan, and two stair-end floral decorations completed the ceremony room décor. For the wedding breakfast in the library, we dressed most of the tables with tall elegant displays of silver vases, with lavish displays of hydrangeas, roses, scented stocks and lisianthus in deep hues of purple and lilac with touches of ivory.  The remaining guest tables and the long top table were dressed with coordinating low mirrored cube vase centrepieces and on the top table we added little posies of flowers in small vintage vases, to create a more informal feel.  The beautiful wedding photography featured is courtesy of Danni Beach Photography.  Thank you so much to Stephanie for sharing these with me!
