When I think of summer I think of big bold colours. Something to compliment the dark wood as well. Orange and light blue? 

Love your venue though. Where in the UK is that?

I with littlemissmoo–go bright with the florals (I’m thinking yellow and orange) and consider uplighting if you can. If you’d really like pink in the non-peony form, the much maligned carnation may be your best friend… they are actually pretty flowers, and you can get a lot of bang for your buck!

I personally would stay away from anything with red/orange base in it, as I think it would clash with the wood there, or it wouldn’t pop as much. I would probably go for greens and creamy white colors, or possibly yellows and blues.

I think certain shades of green would look AWESOME with that color wood.

I think cream colors would look very lovely here. You can mix tissue paper flowers with real ones to help keep costs down.

Cream, light pink and gold would look FABULOUS! If you don’t have a strong aversion to carnations, you could do a ton of those for a low price. Also, incorporating pussy-willow branches with crystals or dainty flowers dispersed on them would look great too. Awesome venue choice!

Uplighting indeed!  Uplighting in pinks and roses and in purples placed at appropriate spots!   And bring in some fabrics to drape around areas to give a bit of a lightened up effect.  Like this!  (this pic from UK also)

I have already chimed in about the greens, I’m all for that! I think if you had one shade of darker green (like forest or evergreen) and one shade of a paler green like the moss color you linked there, plus cream and maybe pale pink as an accent color… That would be just beautiful I think!!

Sage and green with a pop of blush would be gorgeous… I am totally envious of your venue regardless of the colors you pick, it’s GORGEOUS! I mean absolutely and totally STUNNING!
