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.

The Moat House Dorsington Wedding Shoot ~ Rustic Spring Reception Flowers Long Tables

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.


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.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Rustic Wedding Flowers With A Twist Of India


At Passion for Flowers we love rustic wedding flowers, marquee weddings, and wedding ceremonies. We loved working with Vanesha and Guy to create their gorgeous wedding at Wroxall Abbey. The initial ceremony was held inside Wroxall Abbey and Vanesha wanted a rustic English just picked look to her  ceremony flowers. We arranged an eclectic mix of bottles and jars to create this look.

The large wedding filled the marquee and the table centres were a mix of different jars and containers with gorgeous blooms from the day. The hessian square added some more colour into the marquee leaving plenty of  space for the sumptuous banquet.

New Hampton Manor Wedding Ceremony Barn The Birches ~ Wedding Flowers by Passion for Flowers


At Passion for Flowers we love Hampton Manor. Did you know they now have a Hampton Manor ceremony barn aptly named The Birches. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to style the Hampton Manor Wedding Ceremony Barn for the unveiling at their recent Wedding Fair. The Birches is set in a woodland glade and offers a unique place for a wedding ceremony.

The main ceremony room is light and airy and it looks wonderful with large statement urns overflowing with rustic flowers and large candlesticks adding light and interest around the barn. For a rustic touch add hessian sashes to the chairs and a hessian runner to the table. Hurricane lamps lining the aisle add warmth and light to the ceremony.

Rustic styling is just perfect for The Birches Hampton Manor Ceremony Barn. It is amazing how cosy the room feels with lots of candles against its natural wood.The rustic shelves are great for adding small items to make the entrance feel so welcoming and personal.

At Passion for Flowers we love apothecary bottles and hang them from trees around the grounds or we what about this idea of using apothecary bottles as individual escort cards. Guests find their name and then take their apothecary bottle escort card with them to Peels and find their table. We think they look gorgeous here with rustic flowers and crab apples ideal for an autumnal wedding. For spring we can add tulips, muscari and narcissi and for summer just picked flowers or summer blooms depending on the flowers for your wedding day – the choice is yours. The rustic wooden crates we have used add interest in the Hampton Manor wedding ceremony barn and can be used to display books, photos and more candles.

Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers ~Summer Daisies & Peach Roses


We first met Nicola at The National Wedding Show and were really excited to create Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers. At Passion for Flowers we love working with our couples and creating flowers at their venues and Iscoyd Park and St Mary’s Church were certainly highlights this summer.

Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers Just Picked Country Style Bridal Bouquet BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ JUST PICKED DAISIES AND PEACH ROSES

Nicola’s dress was a stunning lace dress and we created a gorgeous hand picked bouquet with a mix of David Austin roses in peach, cream and soft pink combined with just picked daisies, veronica and other summer blooms.

St Mary’s is the most beautiful country church in England, we fell in love with it when we visited it with Nicola and Mark earlier in the year. The setting is so wonderful at the end of the lane, within minutes of Iscoyd Park.

The church just needs country church wedding flowers to make it come to life, rustic crates at the entrance brimming with summer blooms. Inside the little church Mark and Nicola knew the church would be packed so we concentrated on the central aisle with just picked pew ends and country church wedding flowers hanging from poles. All the rest of the colour came from Nicola and her gorgeous bridesmaids and cute flower girls. We were thrilled when the Church Warden commented they were the best church flowers she had seen!

Mark wanted a mix of hand tied button holes tied with twine – just perfect for this country church wedding. Don’t you just love the invitation with Mark and Nicola on their tandem outside the church?

The bridesmaids dresses were one of the first things Nicola had told me about. The buttercup yellow dresses would set the colour palette for the day. We complemented these with hand tied bouquets with just picked daisies ad David Austin roses in cream. soft pink and peach. The wedding car Nicola and Mark had found was also called ‘Buttercup’ which really brought a smile to my face.

The gardens at Iscoyd Park are simply stunning. One of the delights of creating Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers was the opportunity to visit with Mark and Nicola, something at Passion for Flowers we always do for new venues to us. We found the perfect tree for hanging bottles and love the photos with the cricket game taking place. The garden at Iscoyd Park was brimming with roses and other blooms perfect as a backdrop to Nicola and Mark on their wedding day.

The rustic wooden crates from church added colour and life into the marquee. Mark and Nicola wanted to ensure the marquee was not bland and so we all worked together to create a warm inviting look and feel in the marquee. Hessian chair backs with bunches of hand picked flowers decorated the chairs, the lovely table names added even more colour as well as the hand crafted cutlery wraps and favour jars.

Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers rustic crates with flowers hessian table runners


We decorated the tables with a mix of crystal glass vases in very shape and size, stacks of crystal plates festooned with flowers and mirror cake stands with small crystal jugs and vases, tea lights and hessian runners. In the marquee we intensified the colours of the flowers by adding warmer yellow and more touches of peach. Pew ends were added around the marquee and on windowsills in the house.

Packington Moor Wedding Flowers {Candelabra & Footed Bowls}


Julia and James were married during May this year at Packington Moor Farm one of our regular wedding venues. At our consultation we discussed the overall look they were trying to achieve, Julia and James wanted a relaxed feel using soft pastel pink and dusky pink roses with natural style in keeping with their rustic venue.

Here at Passion for Flowers we helped Julia and James decide on the mix of flowers which were to be used though out the day. The main flowers we used were Avalanche roses, Sweet Avalanche roses, Memory Lane roses, spray roses, white lisianthus, freesias, wax flower and eucalyptus.


Julia’s wedding bouquet was a natural hand tied mix of the flowers of the day, we kept to a rounded shape creating texture with the wax flower and grey green eucalyptus. Her bouquet handle was finished off with rustic twine.


Unfortunately we have no photos of the ceremony set up at Packington Moor for Julia and James’ wedding. We used two of our 5′ high silver candelabra with a full floral arrangement either side of the aisle which were later moved to either end of the top table. On the ceremony table we placed one of the footed bowls which later was transferred to one of the guest tables.


The reception was held in the Malt Barn, a stunning room within the barn with wooden beams, exposed brickwork and lovely natural light. For the tables we went with two different table centres alternating on different tables. For the lower style of arrangement we created a natural look in our footed bowls, the bowl was lined with moss and then a round mix of soft pastel pink roses, dusky pink roses, ivory roses, as well as lisiathus, rose buds and eucalyptus.

Packington Moor Wedding Flowers Footed Bowl The other guest tables had taller centrepieces. We used our 1m high silver candelabra on these tables, the candelabra created a real wow factor when guests entered the room. Again we used a similar mix of flowers on the candelabra as had been used throughout the day to coordinate the whole look.

Packington Moor Farm Wedding Flowers Candelabra Julia and James had made their own place cards using brown luggage tags and pegged these onto guests napkins with white heart pegs. These are available from our sister company, don’t forget Passion for Flowers brides get 10% discounts from The Wedding of my Dreams.

Dusky Pink Roses & Wooden Swings ~ Relaxed Wedding Flowers at Blakelands Country House

Daniela and Paul were married in April this year at Wombourne village church with the reception at Blakelands Country House in Staffordshire. They were looking for a relaxed approach to their wedding flowers to reflect their day. The overall look they were trying to achieve was vintage inspired with a touch of glamour. For the flowers we used soft blush pink tones through to dusky pink roses and pale greens. We added the touches of glamour with crystal glass vases and silver cake stands as well as mercury silver candle sticks for the reception tables.

Wedding Bouquets

Daniela’s bridal bouquet was inspired by our signature bouquet, she had a hand tied mix of dusky pink roses, vintage roses, soft blush pink roses with highlights of green astrantia. We wrapped the bouquet handle with offcuts of lace from her wedding dress and fastened with pearl pins. The bridesmaids bouquets were a smaller version of the bridal bouquet.

Blakelands Wedding Flowers

At Blakelands we continued on the vintage glamour theme, the room was set out with long tables. Each table had a hessian runner with a mix of crystal glass vases and dainty glass bottles filled with dusky pink roses and astrantia, some of these were placed on our silver mirrored cake stands to give height along the length of the tables. Each table had a mix of glass and silver tea light holders as well as mercury silver candle sticks to add romantic candle light to the room.

Our glass bud vase card holders were used to hold the table names and the happily ever after sign looked perfect hung above top table. Both these are available to buy from our sister company The Wedding of my Dreams.
