Shustoke Farm Barns Wedding Flowers ~ Mercury Silver and Purple


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.

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.

Chillington Hall Wedding Flowers ~ Ivory & Dusky Pink Roses with Candelabra Centrepieces


Rachael and Ashley were married in August last year at the stunning Chillington Hall. Chillington Hall is a beautiful Georgian country house in Staffordshire. For their flowers their overall colour scheme was vintage tones of creams and dusky pinks colours, they loved the Sweet Avalanche and Memory Lane roses so we used these throughout their day.


For Rachael’s bridal bouquet we created a hand tied bouquet of roses in dusky pinks and creams, we tied this with satin ivory ribbon with an overlay of lace to tie in with her stunning wedding dress.

Her bridesmaids had small bouquets of ivory Avalanche Roses again tied with ivory ribbon. I love how the bouquets have been captured and what a wonderful setting Chillington Hall is for a truly romantic wedding.

For the wedding ceremony at Chillington we scattered fresh rose petals down either side of the aisle and tied a single rose head to each chair as well as the bride and groom’s chairs. The ceremony took place in The Saloon, with soaring ceilings and a magnificent chandelier so these subtle decorations were all that was needed. For the ceremony table itself we created an arrangement filled with cream and dusky pink roses with eucalyptus to trail.

For the centrepieces in the Marquee at Chillington Rachael loved out large silver candelabra as well as our footed vases. We alternated the tables with each of these. The tall candelabra added wow factor and height to the flowers which were noticed by guests as they entered the marquee and the lower footed bowls added variation. The footed bowls were filled with pearls and had a mix of ivory and dusky pink roses, freesias and eucalyptus. A similar mix of flowers were used in the candelabra.

Around the base of the vases we placed our vintage style silver and glass tea light holders which look stunning when lit as they cast wonderful shadows on the table. chillington hall wedding flowers

Finishing touches included delicate dried lavender for the place settings and the tables were named after places they had visited as a couple, they displayed these in our white footed photo frames. dried lavender napkin decorations weding

For their table plan Rachael and Ashley used our vintage birdcage which we decorated with posies of roses. Rachael  enjoyed planning her romantic wedding and we were delighted to be part of her day. birdcage wedding table plan vintage

Mythe Barn Wedding ~ Summer Flowers


Charlene and Gareth  tied the knot in August at the lovely Mythe Barn, a great venue for a summer wedding.


Charlene and her bridesmaids carried pretty pink purple summer bouquets with a gorgeous mix of blooms including feathery astilbe, sweet avalanche roses, memory lane roses and dahlia finished with hessian and wooden heart buttons.

Mythe Barn ceremony flowers are perfect to set the scene for a romantic summer wedding. The Barn looks out over lovely gardens and fields. We brought a bit of summer in with the wedding ceremony flowers overflowing with blousy hydrangea, roses, astilbe and dahlias. The large church candle provided romantic candlelight late into the evening when the arrangement was added to the top table.

For Mythe Barn wedding centrepieces we feel that a mixture of high and low centrepieces add a more relaxed look to the day and work perfectly in this large open barn with its country side views. The summer mix of blooms were used in both the tall candelabra and the footed bowls.

This was a first for Hampton Manor but created a truly magical moment. The setting was created under the acer trees, we hung lights and bottles from the trees to create a gorgeous backdrop to their romantic ceremony. Chris and his team hung a canopy between the trees and the ceremony was conducted around the old oak barrel set amongst logs collected from the Hampton Manor estate.

Within the marquee at Nailcote Hall Kate knew she wanted something tall on the tables. We talked about lots of ideas but settled on a large ball of flowers for our tall glass vases. We set these up in the centre of each of the tables and filled the stem of the vases with pearls to give interest at eye level. In the arrangement itself we used large white hydrangeas, with purple lisianthus, eucalyptus and green alchemilla mollis to create the summer time feel. Along the top table we made a long a low arrangement of the same mix of flowers and spread out our glass heart bottles with purple lisianthus along the length of the table.

Charlotte and Chirs were married in May this year, their wedding was held at Tanworth in Arden Church and then the reception over the road at The Bell country pub. Charlotte and Chirs wanted a relaxed feeling to their wedding with a country look using natural wedding flowers.

Natural Wedding Bouquet

For Charlotte’s bridal bouquet we created a natural just picked style bouquet using purple lisianthus, purple veronica, white peonies, astrantia, lavender, scented freesias, lavender, craspedia and eucalyptus. Charlotte’s bouquet handle was wrapped with an off cut of lace from her wedding dress. The overall look was a relaxed, purple, white and yellow bouquet which reflected the style for the whole wedding.

At the entrance to Tanworth in Arden Church are two old gates, the guests walk past these gates before they enter the church. We tied two hand tied bunches to the church gates to welcome guests. Within the church we hung pew ends from the pews and created large natural arrangements in giant silver milk churns which belonged to Charlotte. They looked stunning at the front of the church.

The table number cards were displayed in our rustic heart table card holders and placed in one of the larger bottles.

Charlotte and Chis had a great idea for their guests place names, they used scrabble letters and took polaroid photos of their guests names next to something that represented that guest! These polaroids were placed on each guests place setting and they could take them home as a lovely reminder of the wedding.

Grafton Manor Wedding Flowers ~Footed Vases & Candelabra With Purple Wedding Flowers

Grafton Manor Wedding Flowers

Grafton Manor is a beautiful wedding venue set in the Worcestershire countryside, it has it’s own chapel on site and marquee off the main house.  We have worked on a number of weddings at Grafton Manor, this wedding had a purple and lilac colour scheme. For these purple wedding flowers we included purple lisianthus, ocean song roses, a hint of white hydrangeas, purple freesias, astrantia and eucalyptus.

It is often a nice idea to mix table centres, not only does it help on budget but also adds variations throughout the room giving interest to each table.

Footed Vases

These footed vases were filled with a purple and white domed arrangement of white hydrangeas, ocean song roses, lilac lisianthus, freesias, astrantia and eucalyptus. The bowl of the footed vase was filled with pearls to give an elegant look.

For a different look these same vases can be filled with moss to create a rustic / woodland feel or glass cubes for a more elegant / modern look.

purple wedding flowers silver candelabra grafton manor

Candelabra Centrepieces

We used a gorgeous mix of florals choosing a similar mix of purple flowers to the footed vases. Our silver candelabra are 1m high, this is the best height for table candelabra as the arrangement is above eye level when guests are sitting at the table, there is nothing worse than guests not being able to see across the table if the flowers are in the way. With our candelabra the flowers are well above eye level and create a real wow factor when guests first enter the room.
