Pampas + Pastels

Written by Emma Hla
Titchwell Manor is a four-star boutique hotel located just a stone’s throw from the sandy shores of the North Norfolk Coast.

Once you walk through the traditional Victorian farmhouse-style Manor, you are embraced with light from the gleaming glasshouse conservatory. This space is the ultimate blank canvas with neutral and coastal-inspired hues of dusky blues and greys, and adorned with sparkling fairy-lights that dangle from the glass top. The 180-degree views of the quintessential English Country garden offer itself to a natural, floral-led design for a wedding.

We’re taking a little sneak peek into their latest wedding showcase day where couples and guests were treated to a scene of pampas and pastels! We adore…

Notes from the Venue

Kirstie says…

It’s no secret that pampas grass is a very popular trend in weddings right now, and the ‘millennial’ blush pink isn’t going anywhere! So, we thought, why not marry the two trends to create a natural, soft, boho-chic look. Rose gold is dominating silver and gold when it comes to metallic elements, so we introduced elements of this but entwined with soft, pink fabrics to embrace a relaxed and comfortable feel.

We wanted to keep the palette as natural as possible. The pampas grass and dried flowers naturally bring nude, sandy, and cream hues, and we introduced bursts of green foliage to further embrace the natural and organic theme. We wanted to introduce some colour to the palette, and thought that the every-popular dusky rose would complement the other colours exquisitely.

Epic Event Hire provided additional décor elements including thin, delicate candlesticks in varying sizes, as well as soft, dusky pink table runners that reflected the pink hues used in the floral arrangements. Additionally, local stationer Silk + Ink Designs created simple yet elegant table numbers and menus that echoed the design and theme in the space.

We chose dried flower specialist and local business Sirrah Flowers for this shoot. Whilst we were excited to embrace the dried flower and pampas grass look, we also wanted to include some colour; Elle at Sirrah is fantastic at using bright but natural colours in her arrangements. She created two arrangements atop tall plinths for the top table with a complementing spray on a copper arch. For the guest tables, Sirrah used several small jars with stems and sprigs of foliage that truly gave a natural, relaxed feel.

We also love that dried flowers last a lifetime! So, there is no need to preserve your bouquet, as you can keep the actual arrangements from your wedding; they look great as home décor, and what a way to remember the day.

The same florals used elsewhere in the Conservatory were repeated on the sleek and simply stunning ombre style cake created by Love Wedding Cakes, with delicate roses and sprigs of dried flowers decorating each tier.

You can easily interpret this design into your wedding day plans, whilst putting your own stamp on the theme. If pink isn’t your colour, opt for cornflower blue or soft lilacs. Having an autumnal wedding? Grab those rustic, burnt orange hues by the stems! It’s such a versatile theme that works in almost any space.
