Luxury Wedding Styling with a Peach Fuzz Colour Palette at Parish’s House

Filed under:

When Pantone announced the colour of the year for 2024 was ‘Peach Fuzz’, I heard collective sighs from across the wedding industry…

I think some of us (of a certain age!) went straight back to the 90’s – think peach taffeta bridesmaid dresses and tight bouquets of orange roses…no, don’t.

But, done well pops of peach can be a beautiful addition to your wedding colour palette.

Today on The Journal, we’ll delve into all the gorgeous details from a late summer’s day spent at Parish’s House in Bath. This editorial, as seen in Wedding Chicks, features a statement tulle wedding gown, an abundance of summer florals and a cocktail reception to end all cocktail receptions.

Parish’s House is steeped in history, dating back to the 18th century, a stunning regency building that wouldn’t look out of place on the set of Bridgerton. What makes it truly unique is that to this day, it’s still a private residence. The team are keen to only take on a certain number of weddings each year which means it remains a well kept secret and truly offers a sense of exclusivity for those wishing to celebrate there.

Parish’s House is situated near the beautiful city of Bath, set amongst acres of private land with exquisite views of the Somerset Hills. There are numerous options for hosting an elegant, English Country wedding, which means it holds appeal for destination weddings as well as those closer to home.

The gardens are perfectly landscaped and like something out of a fairy tale featuring a beautiful pond with its own waterfall. Enjoying the grounds are a family of majestic white peacocks, Peter in particular is always keen to say hello.

During the wedding design process we decided early on that the pond and waterfall would need to take centre stage – Sarah from The Way to Bloom had big plans with her floral arrangements, they were more beautiful than anything I could’ve imagined in advance.

Creating an impactful welcome area were a large selection of different size vases and urns, fitting in perfectly with their surroundings and the stone columns of Parish’s House, each one filled to the brim of stunning summer florals. These type of arrangements are perfect for any wedding day as they can be moved about throughout the day meaning you’re getting the most from your floral budget.

Once guests had passed through the entrance area they’d be advised to take a seat on the perfectly manicured lawn to await the wedding ceremony. Taking place in front of the long pond, itself flanked by statement florals either side, and a show-stopping floral bridge from which the waterfall seemingly fell like magic.

Our bride looked sensational in a Millia London tulle gown, short at the front with a dramatic long train, accessorised by a pair of feathered heels by British designer Di Hassell. The groom looked dapper dressed in traditional black tie.

The intimate wedding breakfast table was set in a peaceful glade, filled bud vases delicately hung from tree branches overhead. To ensure guests could converse easily across the table, the statement florals for the table were placed high on gold plinths, over-spilling with the sweetest scents of the season and trailing ivy. On the tabletop itself, ikebana style florals added a pretty touch nestled in amongst tall, tapered candles housed in glass sleeves.

The pastel shades continued in the place settings with luxury charger plates layered with soft, knotted napkins and personalised wedding breakfast menus tied with silk ribbon. Gold cutlery added warmth to the setting, whilst a pop of colour was incorporated with a pink water glass.

The drinks reception is one to be remembered and was perfectly styled for a summer wedding. Glasses of champagne with fresh strawberries in classic coupes were displayed for guests to help themselves to. The wonderful urns and vases were re-positioned to the glade to sit alongside the champagne display.

A stunning wedding cake decorated with an array of intricate sugar flowers took pride of place back at the pond clearing, blending beautifully with the surroundings and creating a show-stopping cake cutting moment. It is always so important to consider where you’ll cut your wedding cake, these works of art deserve to be more thoughtfully displayed than on a table in a forgotten corner of your venue.

I hope you’ve taken inspiration from this beautiful day, and perhaps are now considering including Peach Fuzz in your wedding colour palette. I’ll leave you with a gallery of stunning imagery to enjoy, and you can read the full editorial feature over on Wedding Chicks at https://www.weddingchicks.com/real-weddings/luxury-weddings/fuzzy-peach-english-wedding/
