Autumn Meets Winter Wedding At Hampton Court House

Today I am very excited to share with you Amy and Andrew’s Autumn meets Winter wedding at Hampton Court House Wedding and what a corker it is! Think oodles of pine cones, gold sequins, autumn leaves, copper and berries and hopefully I have started to build up a picture in your head. From the off Amy and I were on the same page, she is a creative soul herself and it was brilliant getting together to brainstorm ideas and fuse them together. Getting married at the end of November, their wedding very much reflected the change in season with the colour pallet being made up of warm autumnal oranges mixed with wintry navy’s.

The stationary was designed by Amy herself with the help of her brother Nick who is a graphic designer. The design, made up of their wedding colours orange and navy was based around iconic London landmarks that also have a personal meaning to them both. Battersea Power Station is a stone throw away from where they live & Hampton Court is the venue where their wedding reception was held.


Amy wore velvet Yves Saint Laurent heels in navy, which have serious swoon worthy appeal, don’t you think?! We sourced the same lush velvet ribbon to tie round the stems of her bouquet so the shoes and bouquet co-ordinated nicely together.

The little flower girls wore crowns made up of spray roses, thistles, orange ranunculus, wax flower and mimosa, don’t they look cute! I adore the picture above such cheeky happy faces. I have also since been informed that the girls wore their crowns through out the whole day & didn’t take them off until later on in the evening.

The wild alter arrangement for the church was made up of snap dragons, roses, veronica, crocosmia, mimosa and asparagus fern sprayed copper. I know I am biased but I really did love this melody of tones together the peaches and the mimosa gives the arrangement a softness and the orange adds a hint of zing.


Amy bought her stunning gold sequin wedding dress from Blackburn Bridal in Blackheath, initially she hadn’t set out to have an all gold dress but the sparkles caught her eye in the boutique so she tried it on & fell in love with it! The rest as they say is history.

Their reception venue, Hampton Court House is described as a ‘hidden secret’ and I can totally see why. The exquisite 18th century building is nestled on the edge of Bushy park in Hampton Court and offers a tranquil oasis, creating the perfect setting for a wedding venue. How lucky were they with the weather for November, that gorgeous blue sky with barely a cloud in sight!

As part of the ‘Autumn meets Winter’ brief we incorporated styling elements; scattered autumnal leaves in the entrance lobby, pine cones and crab apples sprayed gold & copper were placed on a gold sequin table runner along with tea lights. The urn in the entrance lobby was made up of snap dragons, roses, thistles, euphporbia, veronica and asparagus fern which had been sprayed copper.


The room where the wedding breakfast was held at Hampton Court House has rather vibrant reddish coloured walls which actually complimented the colour scheme well. The centre pieces consisted of two different designs, half the tables had wooden tree slices and gold ridged vases filled with wild like blooms and the other half had tall glass conical vases that were filled with pine cones & a wild woodland arrangements on top. Having a mix of the two designs and the different heights added to the interest of the overall look.

To mark the entrance to the wedding breakfast room we hung flowers and pine cones which were suspended from a branch of twisted willow. I absolutely loved creating this and Steve had the patience of a saint when he was trying to hang it, lets just say the hooks were VERY high up and our step ladder wasn’t quite tall enough but we got there in the end!

At the bottom of the entrance were our new copper lanterns purchased from the lovely Kate at Vintage Style Hire which we placed along with the sprayed pine cones & copper fern that as you may of guessed I just couldn’t get enough of!

Their gorgeous naked cake was dressed with fruity delights and a few scattered flowers that finished it off perfectly with the gold sequin table cloth from Pudding Bridge too.


It was an absolute pleasure working with Amy and Andrew and their wonderfully creative brief. I wish them both lots of happiness for the future.

Are you having a late Autumn/Winter wedding? I would love to hear about it….
