So we think we’ve found our ideal venue but the problem is the walls are a terracotta colour. This is quite common in older English buildings. I haven’t got anything against the colour but am thinking I might need to revise the vision of our day. We had originally thought about having a lavender, cream and green coloured wedding, and took our inspiration from this…
And now with the terracotta walls, I’m thinking we might need to go for more wildflowers as opposed to just lavender. We’re having a very laid back civil partnership in the English countryside with under 60 people. Lots of flowers, lots of food and drink, and just a really nice laid back party. Any ideas for working with terracotta walls? Trying to work in some terracotta…

I used painted terracotta pots in my centrepieces.
I don’t have a good picture of the final product, but I think they looked great. I filled them wilt dusty miller, and a variety of red and yellow flowers.

I personally think those colors sound beautiful with the terracotta.

I don’t think you have to worry about it at all. Even the cake pic that was your inspiration has bits of a terracotta color. I presume it’s bits of caramel in the cake or the filling.
If you want to incorporate terracotta you can use clay pots or saucers for centerpieces, tiny clay pots for votive holders etc.

@julies1949: It’s a frosting in the cake, but I can see what you mean. The darker bits are because the cake is made of crepe 🙂

I actually see terracotta in your inspiration photo, so I don’t think you need to worry about changing the colors at all.
