Enchanted Woodland: Peckforton Castle wedding

Posted in Purple Wedding Flowers

If you are a nature lover and looking for decor inspiration for your wedding day, then take a look at this gorgeous enchanted forest styling at Katie & Scott’s Peckforton Castle wedding. The combination of textured greenery, moss and natural tree bark reflects the amazing woodland surroundings of this fabulous wedding venue and worked beautifully within the Great Hall.

To co-ordinate with their wedding stationery and to add a hint of colour we discussed incorporating flowers in shades of dusky mauve, lavender and purple. The flowers we used included roses and lisianthus with soft romantic scents from dried lavender, freesia and stocks.

Peckforton Castle is such a grand venue and has many different areas to decorate, I would always recommend concentrating the majority of your budget on the main ceremony and reception space and then consider the main entrance, walkways and drinks reception area for extra details. This beautiful floral heart is from our silk flower hire selection which can be designed to match your other decorations. The heart was hung at the entrance arch, above the steps leading into the Great Hall.

For their wedding ceremony in the Great Hall at Peckforton Castle we displayed large floral tree style arrangements on tall plinths to decorate either side of the aisle. The arrangements were then used as table centrepieces for the wedding breakfast.

Each arrangement was designed on our bespoke, natural log stands with moss bases. For extra detail we wrapped trailing ivy around each log stand and placed small clusters of flowers on the moss base.

To co-ordinate with the natural woodland styling we created a wooden crate arrangement to display their table plan cards. This was placed with our wooden ‘house’ post box in the long gallery. When styling your wedding day try to choose accessories that co-ordinate with the theme, incorporating the same materials and similar colour tones. We have lots of beautiful decorations to add those special little details to your wedding reception, take a look on our finishing touches section for more details.

The top table was decorated with a selection of silver mercury glass candle stands and small vases to add a hint of sparkle, along with natural log slice tea light holders, trailing ivy, ferns and clusters of flowers to match those in the table centrepiece arrangements.

We have a variety of wedding table numbers available to hire, which are designed to suit different styles. Our custom made, natural moss numbers worked perfectly with the woodland styling and the log slice bases match with the tea light holders displayed around the base of each table centrepiece.
