BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS
We just love Barnsley House wedding flowers and we delighted to be asked to be the wedding florist for a gorgeous wedding on 1 May. I had the good fortune of meeting Annalise and Pez earlier this spring to finalise arrangements for their intimate wedding celebrations at Barnsley House.
For the day Annalise chose creamy whites and soft blush tones for her wedding flowers. Pez’s button hole had a touch of spray rose and eucalyptus to tie in with the bridal bouquet.
When I first saw photos of the gorgeous dresses the young girls would be wearing I just knew that the dreamy flower girl pomanders would look stunning. Their soft blush pink dresses had a blousy rose and they all enjoyed their day so much. I’ll let you into a little secret here, when collecting the urns the next day the girls had chosen to wear their dresses for their breakfast and still looked just as cute!
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BRIDAL BOUQUET
Annalise had discussed her stunning dress with me and chose a blousy rose and scented peony bouquet with touches of eucalyptus. The look was timeless and so so elegant.
At Barnsley House we created an elegant timeless setting for the indoor ceremony, the large urns brought the feeling of a garden setting filled with hydrangea, peonies and roses. The aisle was lined with elegant silver lanterns filled with fresh rose petals.The gardens beckoned for a few photos after the ceremony just before the heavens opened again but nothing could dampen the spirits of this happy couple.
Candles and mercury silver created the elegant centrepieces for this Barnsley House wedding. The huge mirror and fireplace overflowing with candles and candlesticks set a romantic look and feel to the room. The centrepieces continued this elegant look with a mix of candlesticks, silver footed bowls and mercury silver vases and vessels filled with scented roses and peonies. I love the freshness of the rosemary tucked into each place setting.
I first met Leanne at a wedding last summer and were more than thrilled when she asked if Passion for Flowers would be able to help her with styling and flowers for her spring wedding at South Farm. Leanne runs Blooming Lovely Films and we have admired her work and just love her style. We had great fun when we met David at the Wedding Industry Awards and were introduced to Ross Harvey who had been asked to photograph this epic wedding. Over the last months we met Leanne a number of times, shared pinterest boards and generally agreed on all things floral.
As it was our first wedding at South Farm we took the opportunity to meet up with Leanne and David early this year to see the how we could decorate and enhance the natural beauty of South Farm.
Leanne’s vision for the day was a relaxed day of happiness with family and loved ones. We know she did this and were so happy to be chosen as her florist. As she talked through ideas from the doors to the vespa to the Easter Egg hunt we knew how gorgeous their day would be and of course her divine Claire Pettibone dress.
Leanne and her bridesmaids enjoyed their morning of preparations andwe were delighted to meet up with some of our industry friends Make up by Jodie and Helena Sinclair Bridal Hair when we arrived with the flowers.
South Farm is simply stunning and we worked with its natural beauty to create timeless yet rustic elegant flowers. A mix of roses, clematis, wax flower, pittosporum, hellebores, broom with nigella seed heads created just the right mix for the day.
RUSTIC ELEGANT BUTTON HOLES
David and his best man Jim set the style for the boy team and we loved their coloured jackets. Rustic elegant button holes with spray roses and a mix from the day, finished with twine fitted the bill perfectly.
RUSTIC ELEGANT BOUQUETS FOR LEANNE AND HER BRIDESMAIDS
OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY ~ WOODEN DOORS & RUSTIC CRATES
South Farm is perfect for an outdoor ceremony and we were thrilled with the finished result and were just so lucky with the weather. When Leanne made her entrance through the doors everyone was so moved. Just to let you into a little secret the doors were something Leanne had hoped for from the beginning of her planning and David organised for them to be delivered and set up for us to decorate on the day. They made a perfect frame to the ceremony area with a delicate flower garland and crates of flowers.
OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY ~ SHEPHERDS CROOKS DOWN THE AISLE
Shepherds crooks with simple posies lined the aisle and were later used to decorate the outside tables.
We talked about a flower crown and felt it would work beautifully with Leanne’s wedding dress by Claire Pettibone and the relaxed style of her day. The flower crown was Leanne’s crowning glory and one of the many parts of her day she treasured. I just love the photos on the vespa – we added a surprise posy of flowers to the handlebars.
RUSTIC ELEGANT WEDDING CENTREPIECES IN THE BARN
The barn was full for the wedding breakfast and we used a mix of timeless silver vases and crystal vessels filled with flowers to continue the rustic elegant look. We added elegant candle sticks and a garland of flowers to the top table What a fabulous day they had and a wonderful start to their married life.
We will leave you with their beautiful wedding video below.
Much love, Karen and The Passion for Flowers team x
We love it when we see our Passion for Flowers brides in print. Tom and Vicky’s summer wedding at Warwick House has been featured in the latest issue of Wedding Ideas Magazine, they were lucky enough to also have their wedding featured on Boho Weddings last year!
We know spring is in the air when we include ranunculus in our bridal party flowers. Charlie and Ben were looking for a relaxed spring wedding in the wonderful setting of Moxhull Hall. They were blessed with great weather and had a fun filled day complete with outdoor ceremony with wooden crates and a tandem.
BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ NUDE ROSES & WHITE RANUNCULUS
In our consultation we highlighted the beautiful Quicksand roses, the most perfect nude tone and Charlotte asked us to design a bridal bouquet with nude roses and her favourite white ranunculus. The bouquet was finished with lace and tied with twine.
The bridesmaids bouquets were simple hand ties of spring white ranunculus, we left jugs in the marquee so these could be used later as part of the table decorations.
MOXHULL HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ OUTDOOR CEREMONY
One of many couples wedding day wishes is an outdoor ceremony and Moxhull provides a great opportunity for this. We chose to decorate with a stack of rustic crates filled with spring flowers and added flowers to the tandem bike that Ben had sourced.
Lotty and Dan were married at Hampton Church this April, very local to Passion for Flowers and a short walk through the gardens to Hampton Manor. What a perfect setting for a spring wedding. Over the months we met with Lotty and her mum to prepare ideas and to create the look for Lotty and Dan’s romantic pastel pink and mercury silver wedding at Hampton Manor. Lotty runs a dance school and wanted to use the Beauty and The Beast fairytale as a thread running through her wedding. We agreed on pastel pink roses as the key blooms mixed with touches of white and ivory and lots of sparkle and candlelight.
PASTEL PINK & CREAM ROSE BRIDAL BOUQUET
Lotty had a gorgeous lace wedding dress and so we created a romantic feminine bouquet in blush pinks a complete change from her everyday image.Touches of hydrangea softened the look.
PASTEL PINK & CREAM ROSE BOUQUETS FOR BRIDESMAIDS
With 5 bridesmaids in soft pink dresses the look continued with the softest of rose bouquets hand tied with lace to complement Lotty’s dress. I love their jewel encrusted belts bringing a touch more glamour and sparkle to the day.
PASTEL PINK ROSE BUTTON HOLES
Dan and the boys had pastel pink rose button holes whilst we used the same tones for larger sweet avalanche roses for the ladies. Everything was soft, pink and romantic for this wedding day. With so many button holes it is important to make sure they have name tags to help with the distribution on the wedding day.
PEW ENDS ~ HAMPTON CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS
The wooden pews had simple pew ends blush and soft pink roses hand tied with a sprig of pittosporum and lace. After the service everyone walked back through to the Manor gardens and had a great chance for some photos. I just love the one with the bridal party Rebecca shot.
MERCURY SILVER & PASTEL PINK ROSES ~ A WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR
The richness of the mercury silver with the pastel pink roses looked majestic at Hampton Manor. The long top table had the most romantic collection of mercury silver items, candlesticks in a variety of heights with white candles, large hurricane vases and a mix of different shaped and sized mercury silver bottles with filled with soft pastel pink roses. The guest tables had a touch of whimsy with the key to the castle, lots of candlelight and roses in gorgeous bottles in the glass domes. Mini glass domes were added to the top table to link the look. As the candles were lit the romance blossomed.
VINTAGE ROSES IN CHINA TEA CUPS & GLASS BOWLS ~ A WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR
Lotty wanted to incorporate some of her grandma’s rosebud china to the room and it looked soft and romantic on the large wooden display table with the cakes, vintage roses in glass rose bowls and a collection of beautiful boxes.

As the preferred wedding florist for The Moat House Dorsington we loved being part of a creative shoot to showcase this stunning new venue. The Moat House Dorsington is a stylists dream and offers a great backdrop for the perfect wedding day. We created a rustic styled wedding shoot with long tables full of spring flowers and a mix of vessels and vases that felt natural in the barn.
RUSTIC SPRING BRIDAL BOUQUET
Our favourite bouquets are natural in style and are created and designed to showcase the flowers, we love working with seasonal blooms and so for this rustic spring bridal bouquet we combined scented narcissi, soft ranunculus, spring tulips, grey brunia balls and nigella seed heads for texture with blush pink lisianthus for a touch of colour and foliage from the garden. The bouquet was finished with a hessian wrap and trailing hand dyed silk ribbon with a soft blush tone.
Olivia our model loved the flowers and rustic styling so much she has booked us for her wedding next year.
RUSTIC SPRING BUTTON HOLES
For a rustic spring button hole we combined ranunculus, lisianthus, nigella seed heads, pieris and feathers for a touch of whimsy, all finished with twine. The button hole looked just perfect with the groom’s outfit from Clement & Church. We love to be imaginative when we deliver our wedding flowers and the button holes suited one of our rustic tree slices.
THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON ~ FIREPLACE WITH SPRING FLOWERS IN RUSTIC URNS
The Moat House Dorsington is offered for exclusive use weddings and the large entrance hall with its stunning fireplace is a great place for photographs. These rustic stone urns with a large spring arrangement of eucalyptus, pussy willow, tulips and lisianthus provided a warm welcome.
As guests enter the barn for the reception make sure to add a touch of dressing, the bay tree with a welcome sign sat on a rustic wooden crate is just right.
ESCORT CARDS USING APOTHECARY BOTTLES
We love being creative with escort cards and our A frame ladders are a great place to display apothecary bottles with blooms and a tag with the guests name and table number on. Guests can then pick up the bottle and find their seat. At Passion for Flowers we have a great collection of props including vintage bottles, and hand selected pieces for all our couples to hire.
THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON WEDDING ~ LONG GUEST TABLES WITH RUSTIC CHIC SPRING FLOWERS
The Moat House Dorsington offers a flexible space for your wedding reception. For this shoot we worked with long guest tables with rustic chic spring flowers. If you are using long guests tables the key is to add lots of interesting vases and vessels. We added hessian runners and hessian chair backs to keep the rustic feel to the barn. On the windowsills around the barn vintage books, candles and tea lights in bark containers and spring flowers completed the look.
The key pieces on the tables were our rustic footed urn centrepiece filled with a mix of spring flowers scented narcissi, tulips and eucalyptus with brunia balls, feathers and moss.
HESSIAN MR & MRS CHAIR BACKS
The hessian Mr and Mrs Chair Backs are great for the bride and groom.
Along the tables we added an assortment of rustic centrepieces bark containers with spring flowers, vintage pots, terracotta plant pots with succulents, wooden boxes planted with succulents and moss and lots of apothecary bottles. For a chic look we added vintage brooches to some of the bottles. Books were used to add height to some of the arrangements and give a sense of unity to the tables.
THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON GALLERY ~ JUST MARRIED BUNTING
The gallery in the barn looks down over the main room and is a great spot for a romantic photo. The Just Married bunting finished with a hand tied bunch of spring flowers completes the look.

We were thrilled to be part of a styled shoot at The Moat House Dorsington earlier this year. Robert and Peter from The Moat House were keen to showcase their fabulous new venue and were delighted with the results. Passion for Flowers is looking forward building on our relationship as their preferred wedding florist and creating flowers for their clients. We first met Robert back at The National Wedding Show 18 months ago and are delighted that this wonderful venue is now available for exclusive use for weddings.
THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON WEDDING SHOOT ~ VINTAGE ROMANCE PINK ROSE BOUQUET
For a soft vintage romance bouquet we chose softest blush pink and deeper toned pink roses hand tied with lace to complement the wonderful wedding gown. If your dress has lots of embellishments then we like to keep the bouquet quite simple and let the flowers speak for themselves.
THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON GLASS CEREMONY ROOM ~ MR & MRS CHAIR BACKS & AISLE DECORATIONS
On of the stunning features The Moat House Dorsington has to offer is its Award Winning Glass Ceremony room. This provides an intimate setting for any wedding ceremony and needs little decoration. For aisle decoration simple glass hurricane lamps, wicker hearts tied on with hessian and for the bride and groom our cute Mr and Mrs Chair Backs.
The ceremony table just needs a grouping of organic glass vases with simple blooms to complete the look. As the seasons change the Glass Ceremony room will open up to spectacular views of the moat and surrounding planting. We can’t wait to see it come to life over the coming months.
THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON GLASS CEREMONY ROOM ~ GIANT LOVE LETTERS
If you are looking for a WOW factor piece for your wedding then the giant LOVE letters are just perfect. What a great piece to have for your ceremony which look fantastic as the light fades later in the day. They could then be set up in the bar or party room to add sparkle to your evening celebratiaons.

VINTAGE TEA PARTY ~ THE MOAT HOUSE DORSINGTON
The Moat House Dorsington is a gorgeous new venue which is a stylists dream. It has so many lovely places to decorate and we enjoyed creating flowers for a vintage tea party. With a vintage tea party look we just adore blousy roses in all shades of pink teamed with broom and touches of pittosporum for a country garden feel.
If you are using a long guest table then add flowers in vintage china at differing heights a teapot with flowers, a stack of vintage tea cups and then a beautifully decorated cake plate with soft roses.
Then just sit back and enjoy your vintage tea party. x
SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS WEDDING FLOWERS ~ PURPLE BRIDAL BOUQUET
Purple is Georgie’s favourite colour and played a large part in her glamorous wedding celebrations at Shustoke Farm Barns. We created a hand tied bouquet with purple lisianthus, delicate clematis trails, blush toned Quicksand roses and snippets of astrantia.
SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS WEDDING FLOWERS ~ MERCURY SILVER VASES & PURPLE LISIANTHUS
Georgie and Chris chose the relaxed setting at Shustoke Farm Barns for their summer wedding and were one of the first couples to use the Barn.To continue the luxe look set by Georgie and her elegant wedding gown we agreed on a a mix of mercury silver vases and vessels and added lisianthus in purple, her favourite colour, with the gorgeous nude coloured Quicksand roses and touches of astrantia, the soft tones of the rose picked up the luxe look of the mercury silver vases and mercury silver candlesticks. Candles are another of Georgie’s favourite things and featured everywhere.
Ben The Cakeman created the most wonderful cake which we were thrilled to source the flowers for. The creation he made was just out of this world and stole the show. Photos – floral photos by Passion for Flowers, professional photos by Lyndsey Goddard
