Dutch Masters’ Wedding Flowers Inspiration

Dutch Masters’ Wedding Flowers Inspiration

Autumn is creeping in and we’re here for it! When it comes to autumn weddings, we’re all about embracing sumptuous roses in rich colours, in the style of the world-renowned Dutch Masters. This beautifully romantic look is perfect for creating a cosy wedding reception with luxurious linens and twinkling candlelight as the cold, dark nights draw in.

The Golden Age of Dutch painting has been a constant source of inspiration for contemporary floral design. Artists like Huysum, Bosschaert, Ruysch, and Vosmaer hold their place in history as the creators of mesmerising paintings depicting sprawling, wild, and heavy arrangements rich with allegory and a distinctive look.

Here a stellar team of wedding creatives, including RSVP Event Designs and Floraison Paris, created a fusion of David Austin Wedding Roses in the unmistakable Dutch Masters’ style. The combination of deep red Tess, pale pink Charity (with a pop of lime) and Constance creates a dramatic painterly effect with the elements of light and shade that this style of art is known for. The bride’s incredible off-the-shoulder pink Monique Lhuillier gown highlights the pink of Constance and totally adds to the drama of this beautiful editorial.

David Austin Wedding Roses are the perfect flower to achieve this artistic look thanks to their full shape and countless, billowing petals. Much of the appeal of the Dutch Masters’ aesthetic is the emphasis on the wild and bountiful.

Consider the lighting of your wedding venue when recreating this look. Deep, dark backgrounds are a trademark of Dutch Masters’ paintings, emphasising the natural light and colours of the flowers at the centre. Another element in making a Dutch floral design come to life is your choice of vessels. Low-footed urns made of brass or copper are ideal for allowing flowers and vines to tumble over the edge, making the entire arrangement appear wild and full of movement.
