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.
RUSTIC FOOTED URN CENTREPIECES
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.
ASSORTMENT OF RUSTIC CENTREPIECES
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.
Mercury silver tea lights added a touch of candle light and each place setting had a favour, a rustic wooden heart or a thank you bag. Individual bud vases can be used as place names.
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.
