Traditional Wedding Inspiration with White and Pink Roses

Traditional Wedding Inspiration with White and Pink Roses

As much as we love a modern wedding, we will always embrace the romance of old-fashioned traditions. A shoot concept created by the exquisite storytelling of Amy Louise Hatch, who entwines modernity with heritage.  Amy’s brief was to encapsulate the characteristics of David Austin Roses, with an emphasis on luxury, romance and pared back elegance.

“My aim was to show all the incredible capabilities for brides and florists when choosing David Austin cut roses for their wedding. These roses are born for creative masterpieces, promising luxury for a special occasion and to deliver a memory to last.”

Came House, an enchanting Palladian Country House in Dorset, England, has historically provided the backdrop to countless weddings and guests over the centuries. A natural canvas to capture the beauty of our roses and tell the story of a bride on her rose-filled wedding day.

To set the scene…

On the morning of her wedding the bride-to-be awakens. Her big day has arrived!

With butterflies fluttering around her stomach our bride prepares to walk down the aisle. Hollie Danby specialising in natural, laidback hair and makeup adds the finishing touches. The bridal gown by Stephanie Allin is hanging on the wardrobe door, showing off the 3d lace overlaid on an ivory silk.  There is one last jump of excitement followed by a quiet moment of reflection prior to this new chapter of her life beginning.

Two dresses and two bridal bouquets to muse over!  The first bouquet – a timeless classic featuring the ivory rose blooms of Leonora with the blushed quiet beauty of Purity. The roses are framed by ranunculi, white lilac, green hellebore and paper whites. Purity perfuming the air with Turkish delight and rose-water as the bride makes her way down the aisle taking her last few steps before saying “I do”.  The overall aesthetic has a nostalgic feel of a bygone era.

The ceremony, held in the domed conservatory, is filled with natural light and the fragrant blooms of Leonora, Purity and Keira. The three rose sisters are artfully combined by the skilled hands of Joanne Truby and Clementine Moon creating a deconstructed ceremony arch to frame the bridal couple as they say their vows.

“It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of garden roses! To be surrounded by hundreds of gorgeous David Austin Roses really was a dream. I was quite literally like a kid in a sweet shop.”
