Autumnal Oxnead Hall Wedding with Relaxed Boho Styling and Floral Semi Naked Cake

Updated: Dec 11, 2022

Why did I love Aleysha and Jack’s Oxnead Hall wedding? Let me count the ways!

If you’re on the search for some autumnal boho styling inspiration then it’s your lucky day, because I mean that literally. From their venue to their styling to their cake – of course! – their Oxnead Hall wedding was a total dream, so pull up a pew, grab a glass (or a mug, whatever floats your boat) and let’s dive in.

Oxnead Hall wedding venue

I’m a regular supplier for Oxnead Hall weddings – you can see another wedding I did there recently here – and fall in love with the venue afresh every single time. It’s an idyllic setting with a variety of spaces for ceremonies and receptions, meaning each wedding is totally different and personalised to the couple. Aleysha and Jack had their relaxed, boho ceremony in the Fountain Room, a light and airy room with focal arched mirrors and a historic feature wall at the top of the aisle. They then ate and partied in the award-winning Great Barn.

Warm, earthy autumnal colour palette

Aleysha and Jack got married in November, and chose an autumnal wedding colour scheme to match. Emulating the very best bits of the season – the crunchy leaves underfoot, all the pumpkin spice – they chose deep orange tones alongside mocha and rich brown shades. These colours ran through everything at their Oxnead Hall wedding, from the flowers to the amazing burnt orange of the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Styled wedding collaboration

Aleysha and Jack’s Oxnead Hall wedding packed a particular punch in terms of design and styling, as they’d chosen the full styling and floral package from The Little Lending Co and Floral Sistas. No one does boho like The Little Lending Co and Floral Sistas, and to have them both team up is a match made in styling heaven!

The Great Barn looked completely different to any other times I’ve seen a wedding there, with impactful flowers and innovative use of texture bringing a rustic but contemporary feel. Against the back wall and from the ceiling beams hung beautifully soft, draped fabric, which also snaked its way up some pillars alongside some dark, dried floral arrangements. Thick, chunky knotted rope also added depth behind the top table, as well as around the table plan, a black board featuring white hand lettering. Alongside the rustic white Chiavari chairs, the top table also featured two giant rattan peacock chairs, which had been part of the ceremony setup too.

Floral Sistas had knocked it out of the park with the flowers, too, in stunning shades of peach, orange, and dark brown. Alongside the flowers, they’d also utilised foliage and dried, fluffy grasses to add even more texture. (It’s hard to pick a fave, but I think my favourite flowers are the arrangement that the statue is wearing as a crown in The Fountain Room!)

Autumnal floral wedding cake

Floral Sistas left me some flowers to use as the finishing touches for the cake, too. The cake design for this Oxnead Hall wedding was simple, yet stunning: a tall, four-tiered cake finished in a semi naked buttercream design. Across these tiers, Aleysha and Jack had three unusual, intriguing flavours: lemon and elderflower, banoffee, and white chocolate, pistachio and cardamom (a super, spiced cake that was perfect for the season!)
