Autumn French Country – Amelia & Tim

This mood board was created with Amelia and Tim’s wonderfully whimsical French Country reception venue in mind.

The silvery greys, worn whites and tactile textiles, that fill Hopewood Country House’s light filled rooms, became the starting point for concepts put forward. With the wedding weekend set at the Autumn’s end, the warm colours found in seasonal blooms and fruit add the extra unexpected ‘pop’ that guarantees to excite. These rich and inviting ingredients inspire styling for the wedding whether it be Pomegranate Place Cards, Fig Covered Cake or Berry Strewn Flower Arrangements.

Amelia’s wish for tying tradition and playfulness is evident both in the mood board (the bride wore red shoes) as well as in the invitation concepts themselves. Each solution uses sumptuous paper stocks and luxurious print processes.
