I am happy.
Why…? Because it’s Autumn my friends.
This is my favourite time of year and, rather secretly, I’ve been looking forward to the last of the summer days. I say secretly, because when living in a seaside town it’s not really cool to be seen frantically waving goodbye to the sun and holiday-esque mood!
But… from the change in air to the change in fashion, I’m all in when it comes to this season.
So it’s a pleasure to welcome back our in-house Florist Amber Persia for some guidance to this month’s wedding flowers.
Notes from Amber
I love having seasons! Only last month we were talking about garden parties and Pimms and yet suddenly there’s a chill in the air, the trees are beginning to shed their leaves, and September signifies the beginning of Autumn.
September offers a wealth of possibilities; think fern leaves and wonderful grasses, bronze sunflowers and sheaths of wheat. Consider textures as well as colours and make the most of Autumnal fruit; blackberries, figs, rose hips and boughs of apples all add to the rich and bountiful feel.
And have fun with those finishing details; a russet tinted pear on each place setting, bowls brimming with cob nuts to decorate the tables, swags of hops for the bar. Let your imagination run wild…

You will find me heading to my favourite flower shop and scooping up armfuls of eucalyptus and hydrangeas for the house.
What’s your fave from this little lot…?
Are you an Autumn Bride thinking about suitable seasonal wedding flowers…?
Until next month floral folks!
Lots of love…
