Victoria and Rich

Wedding Location: Battleaxes, Wraxall, North Somerset.

Victoria and Rich embraced the season and had a beautiful September wedding full of autumnal colours and textures.

Victoria and Rich had both their ceremony and reception at The Battleaxes, a beautiful grade two listed Victorian pub which was originally built as the meeting house for the workers of the local Tyntesfield estate.

The Bridal Party

Victoria wore a stunning original 1930’s dress and requested a bouquet which would compliment this style of dress. In the 30’s shower bouquets were very popular so I created a stunning trailing bouquet full of autumnal foliage’s and locally grown flowers. Rich wore a botanical buttonhole to compliment his waistcoat.

Both of Victoria’s bridesmaids wore stunning floor length emerald green dresses and carried natural botanical bouquets including scented garden roses and seasonal English flowers.

The Venue

To stay in keeping with the venue we decorated windowsills and side tables with vintage stoneware pots full of seasonal flowers, each having a very natural feel and looking slightly different.

Larger stoneware vessels were used as a backdrop to the ceremony and delicate garlands of mixed foliage were used to dress the wedding breakfast table. The garlands were styled alongside brass candlesticks and latte coloured candles to give a gorgeous romantic feel and embrace the autumnal light of September.

A beautiful floral arch full of autumn flowers and foliage’s was created as a photo booth for guests to take pictures.

A big thank you Victoria and Rich for letting me be part of your special day. I absolutely loved working with you both and wish you both a long and happy life together.
