As a cotswold wedding florist it was an absolute joy to take part in this styled shoot at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester.
The wedding venue
As soon as we visited The Royal Agricultural University, we knew that we wanted to showcase the stunning Victorian gothic architecture of the University, originally built in 1845. For me as the floral designer this meant making the most of the arches and glasswork in the quad.
Fair warning, if there is an arch at your wedding venue I will want to flower it! It makes the perfect wedding photo and really sets the mood for your day.
This asymmetrical deconstructed arch was created using sustainable floristry techniques; vessels, poles, water and chicken wire.
The wedding flowers
I really love this warm late summer palette using burnt orange, peach and pale pink with lots of different foliages to achieve that sought after untamed garden style. The stars were the peach and pink dahlias grown locally by Gemma at Fairfield Green Flowers and the burnt orange luxury chrysanthemums supplied by Flower Vision in Bristol.
My other favourite photographs were taken on the tree lined promenade, a romantic and natural backdrop for your wedding photos.

If you are looking for a cotswold wedding venue steeped in history with gorgeous spaces inside and out I would highly recommend the Royal Agricultural University, they are licensed for civil and religious ceremonies.
