Barnsley House Wedding Flowers ~ White, Blush & Mercury Silver Glass


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!

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.

Rustic Elegant Wedding Flowers ~ Leanne & David

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.

Ross Harvey ( has done such a fantastic job at capturing this beautiful day, see all their wedding photos over on Ross’ blog.

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.


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 wedding flowers passion for flowers at south farm rustic elegant button holes wedding flowers passion for flowers


At her final consultation Leanne and I agreed on a gorgeous look for her rustic elegant bouquets. The long trailing ribbons looked wonderful with the elegant dresses  chosen for the bridesmaids. rustic elegant wedding flowers bridesmaids bouquets passion for flowers bridesmaids bouquets rustic elegant wedding flowers passion for flowers bridesmaids bouquets rustic elegant wedding flowers passion for flowers (2)

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.


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.


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.

Pastel Pink Roses & Mercury Silver Wedding At Hampton Manor, Solihull

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.


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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Moat House Dorsington Barn Venue ~ Wedding Ceremony Flowers

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.


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.


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.

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.

New Years Eve Glamour Wedding | White, Grey & Gold Wedding Flowers

I first met Amy at the Rock My Wedding Pop Up Shop last year when Lolly introduced us and knew we would be able to help her with her plans for a gorgeous New Years Eve Wedding. Amy and Huw were married in the seclusion of St Paul’s Convent, bringing back lovely memories for her family, and the couple were welcomed with open arms.

The ceremony in the chapel was followed by a sumptuous dinner and party at Edgbaston Golf Club where we helped Amy create a glamorous look for her New Years Eve wedding celebrations.


Flowers were very important to Amy and she wanted a bouquet to suit her elegant lace wedding gown. The bouquet was a mix of white, ivory and gold with touches of green from the eucalyptus. We included touches of gold with hydrangea, artichoke heads and bitter balls perfect with  creamy hydrangea, roses and lisianthus all finished with a luxe gold wrap to the stems.

Amy had chosen her bridesmaids dresses with a glamour wedding in mind, the girls had wonderful gold dresses and we teamed these with hand tied bouquets of creamy flowers with accents of gold.

Later in the evening Amy planned a surprise when she changed her veil and head dress for a delicate flower crown. I think even Lolly was a little envious of the flower crown. We always love delivering the bridal party flowers on the day when everyone is getting ready and were delighted that Amy was so happy with her flowers.

Huw and the men had button holes of ivory roses with grey dusty miller.The stems were delicately covered with gold ribbon to tie in with the girls bouquets.

Flowers in the chapel were a very important part of Amy and Huw’s day and we enjoyed visiting St Paul’s to discuss details together. Hurricane lamps lined the route through the cloisters and down the aisle and provided the candlelight the couple wanted. Eucalyptus in the pew ends added a lovely winter aroma in the chapel.

For the ceremony we added to the candlelight with large silver candelabra with creamy white flowers and touches of gold and green, the chapel looked resplendent for such a joyous occasion.

With the wedding on New Year’s Eve Amy and Huw wanted to create a glamorous party feel to their wedding celebrations.The gold chairs set the tone and a highlight was the full length garland of flowers to the top table. Mounds of cream hydrangea, roses and touches of gold hydrangea, artichoke heads and grey foliage worked perfectly and as soon as the candles were light the room was ready for Amy and Huw to welcome their family and friends.

Amy and her mum had fun collecting vintage rose bowls, silver candelabra and silver rose bowls for the the guest tables. We loved filling them with gold, cream and grey flowers to continue the glamour look to their New Year’s Eve wedding celebration. A touch of whimsy was added by Amy and Huw, the napkins were in the shape of their pet rabbit Flapjack, who had a special visit from Amy and Huw before they arrived at their reception.

Blush Pink Spring Wedding Bouquet & Delicate Archway Garland

For a dose of spring love check out this blush pink wedding bouquet and delicate archway garland.

As part of the love inspired shoot for Rock My Wedding back in January we created a delicate archway garland to frame the bride, we kept the foliage and flowers wispy and delicate to complement the beautiful lace wedding dress. We used delicate foliage including pieris with spring catkins as a base for the garland and then wired in the softest pale pink tulips, lisianthus and scented narcissus.

This mix is perfect for a blush pink spring wedding. wedding shoot passion for flowers blush pink white spring bridal bouquet posy foliage garland Passion for Flowers featured on Rock My Wedding.

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
