Flower Power – Autumn Wedding Flowers No. 1

I was a guest at a gloriously vibrant yellow summer wedding this weekend. There are a load of gorgeous images that I’ll upload shortly, but it got me thinking about seasonal flowers, bouquets and suchlike.

Here’s a roundup of some ideas from around the web that make me smile for the looming cooler weather of autumn, for which I have three friends busily planning their nuptials…

Herbs and roses for a nosegay with height and depth.

Amnesia Roses and more by

Organic components including dried ferns and mushroom pods combine with fresh berries and roses by The Colour of Magic.
