Back in April we worked on a stunning Kilworth House wedding.The tone of the day was soft romantic and elegant which we reflected in our choice of flowers. Having met with Jennie at Kilworth House earlier in the year, we decided soft pink and pastel toned roses would be perfect in the orangery with the gorgeous glass ceiling and exposed brick work.
The ceremony took place in an idyllic country church near to Kilworth House, we used glass footed bowls filled with pearls in the base and soft pink pastel roses in the arrangement. With a highlight of eucalyptus and astrantia for texture.
To continue the elegant look in the country church one of our 5′ silver candelabra was positioned at the front. Again the elegant pastel pink roses and soft peach roses were used mixed with grey green eucalyptus.
For the button holes a soft peach rose and astrantia gave an elegant look. The tradition is that the groom should wear a rose that could have been picked from the bride’s bouquet, so these roses were included in Jennie’s bouquet too.For the bride we created an elegant hand tied bouquet. Using soft pastel pink roses, soft peach roses, astrantia and gyp tied with lace. This is one of our signature styles here at Passion for Flowers… simple and elegant.
On to Kilworth House! At Passion for Flowers we love working a unique venues and Kilworth House wedding’s certainly have a unique look to them. The reception took place in the Orangery a beautiful room with rural views and natural light flooding in.
To keep an elegant wedding look in the orangery we used a mix of table centres. Half the tables had our silver candelabra with full arrangements of roses, astrantia and eucalyptus.For the other guest tables we used our stylish silver and glass footed bowls, with pearls in the base and a similar mix of flowers, a group of vintage tea light holders on these tables would give these tables a soft romantic look as the evening drew in.
For the long top table we used a mix of the soft pink roses and soft peach toned roses, with elegant pearls draped through the arrangement. Either side of this we had glass bottles with single stem roses and tea lights along the tables.
At Passion for Flowers we love creating wreaths as part of your wedding decorations, a heart shaped wreath is so romantic and perfect for a vintage or country wedding.
This heart shaped vintage rose wedding wreath has been a favourite with Passion for Flowers brides – much admired at the National Wedding Show.
A circular wreath placed on the gate or door way to your venue or church is a lovely way to welcome guests. This hydrangea and eucalyptus wreath works beautifully for a summer wedding at a country house venue; Hampton Manor in Warwickshire.
Why not add a romantic wreath to your wedding decorations.
At Passion for Flowers we love the softness of gypsophilia also well known as baby’s breath and million stars. Gypsophilia is perfect if you are looking for white wedding flowers, it can be used on its own or mixed with other flowers.
Why use gypsophilia in your wedding flowers?
As a wedding flower gyspohilia is great for filling large arrangements.As it is so cost effective gypsophilia looks great used en masse.This gorgeous wedding bouquet had a big bunch of dreamy gypsophilia and eucalyptus making a great summer bouquet. The softness of the grey green eucalyptus works well in the groom’s button hole to finish the look.
Alternatively at Passion for Flowers we like teaming gypsophilia with white avalanche in bridal bouquets, especially if the bride has chosen a lace trimmed dress as the delicate flowers look like lace.
Gypsophilia is lovely with the delicate white lisianthus and soft grey tones of eucalyptus for a summer garland or table centrepeice.Gypsophilia is the perfect filler for large scale work in churches or for wedding ceremony flowers. It looks good in bunches or mixed with other flowers here it compliments the lilac roses, spray roses and purple lisianthus.
At Passion for Flowers our brides love making a statement with silver wedding candelabra for their wedding centrepieces. Gypsophilia gives softness and texture to the wedding flowers.
Gypsophilia is very on trend for classic white weddings and as seen here looks amazing as the only flower at your wedding. We love the topiary trees and extravagant centrepieces filled only with gypsophilia. This simple understated flower can have a real WOW factor when used en masse.
At Passion for Flowers we just love winter weddings. See how our beautiful bride Laura and groom Simon styled their day with Passion for Flowers at Wroxall Abbey an exclusive wedding venue in Warwickshire.
Laura’s winter bridal bouquet with thistles, calla lilies and Grand Prix roses. Simon’s button hole with a gorgeous Grand Prix rose hand picked from her bouquet for a traditional touch. Hair flowers added a the perfect finishing touch for our gorgeous bride.
The bridal bouquet picked up the colour of the cravats with deep red ribbon and roses. Don’t you just love the calla lilies adding warmth to the winter bouquet. The thistles added the Celtic touch.
The beautiful wooden screen at Wroxall Abbey Wren’s Cathedral was decorated with a floral arch and continued the warm winter colours with roses and ivy.Back in the Mansion House table centres used hurricane vases and centrepieces with thistles, pussy willow and roses – perfect for a winter wedding.
