Our final bouquet from the shoot at The Rotunda, Birmingham. White peonies create a large, blousy, romantic, scented look for your bouquet. We love white peonies and they will always look stunning. These white peonies were chosen with hints of pink on a couple of the petals to give a touch of colour to the white wedding flowers.
White peonies are available from mid April until end of July, they are a special treat for Summer brides, but can be very expensive at other times of the year.
White weddings are always on trend and one of our favourites at Passion for Flowers and with royal brides. Take a look at some of our most loved white wedding flowers.
White roses are perfect and are gorgeous for an elegant wedding.
For winter wedding flowers combine white roses with bright green hypericum berries for a lovely fresh take on white wedding flowers – great for button holes.
For a white wedding in spring at Passion for Flowers we love our brides to choose tulips, the gorgeous honeymoon tulip is a favourite with our brides. So romantic with its frilly petals and just perfect en masse!
For early summer peonies make a gorgeous scented white wedding flower. This romantic bridal bouquet is a lovely combination of white freesia, gypsophilia or baby’s breath and peonies.
Calla lilies offer an elegant white wedding flower with year round availability. This stunning white bridal bouquet included calla lilies, lily of the valley, white hydrangea and white veronica to make an elegant trailing bouquet.
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.
If you are looking for a just picked country style blue purple and lilac bridal bouquet for your wedding this is it. This gorgeous bridal bouquet was created for our Passion for Flowers bride Georgina in October.The bride wanted a bridal bouquet with country flowers for her just picked blue purple and lilac wedding.
The bridal bouquet had hydrangeas, lilac and pink roses, astrantia, wax flower, purple limonium and herbs from the garden to finish. The wine cooler was a family favourite.
Don’t you just love the mixed bridesmaids bouquets. They looked perfect with their prom style dresses. The bride and bridesmaids squealed with delight when the bridal flowers were delivered!
At Passion for Flowers we love working with brides who have a clear idea of the colours they love.Claire was no exception and was inspired by wedding flowers in lilac, cream and purples to create a gorgeous summer look. Her groom Richard and the male members of the bridal party wore kilts so we added a hint of heather and used thistles for the button holes. We loved creating her summer bouquet of lilac and cream wedding flowers captured by Rob and Sarah Gillespie.
The bridal bouquet was a delicate mix of summer blooms in creams and lilacs to create a delicate summer mixed bridal bouquet perfect with Claire’s gorgeous chiffon Sassi Holford dress.
The bridesmaids bouquets had deeper tones of purple and lilac to contrast with their bridesmaids dresses. The mix of flowers was all part of the palette of soft lilac and purple colours we had agreed for the wedding day.
The corsages were a delicate mix of lisianthus and freesia continuing the lilac and purple wedding colours.The wedding reception was at one of our favourite Warwickshire venues, Mallory Court. The room looked stunning with tall silver candelabra with wonderful wedding flowers in creams and lilacs. At Passion for Flowers we love the soft backdrop for a romantic wedding.An elegant top table arrangement with glass hurricane vases and church candles was created with a soft garland wrapped in voile. The wedding flowers were lilac and cream roses, gypsophilia and lisianthus. For brides wanting a stunning effect place a candelabra at either end of the top table. Wow!
At Passion for Flowers we love the work of wedding photographers Rob and Sarah Gillespie – they captured our bride and groom and their lilac and cream summer wedding perfectly. Thank you xx
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.
succulents can be bought well in advance of the wedding day
as potted plants succulents can be kept as a reminder of a special day
a great green option
succulents are a great price
We shared ideas for DIY brides wanting to make their own centrepieces. Use succulents with other flowers to create an eye catching and easy to make wedding centrepiece. Blackboard buckets are available to buy from our sister company the wedding of my dreams. This centrepiece would look gorgeous at a seaside wedding, perhaps adding some shells to the arrangement. Don’t forget to chalk on the table name or number. Great for easy DIY centrepieces.
Pretty rustic bark centrepiece looks great with a semperviren (type of succulent)! These could be hung from trees or set around your wedding reception venue.
Here at Passion for Flowers we love hydrangeas for wonderful wedding flowers. We use them for wedding bouquets, wedding table centres, arches for church weddings and large arrangements for that WOW wedding factor!
This stunning summer bridal bouquet has a mix of soft blue hydrangeas, vintage roses in blues, pinks, lilacs and creams – this set off our brides beautiful Jenny Packham dress like a dream.Hydrangea heads make a statement on their own in a mix of blues – great contrast to navy bridesmaids dresses for pure style.For the purist bride a hand-tied bouquet of white hydrangeas and gypsophilia tied with lace for a vintage look.Hydrangea heads make stunning arches in churches or over doorways, teamed here with dreamy gypsophilia. Statement table centres with white hydrangeas and crystals set off the perfect table.Wow factor hanging hydrangea globes add colour to a marquee Stylish glass bubble vases look cool and elegant with hydrangea heads and steel grass, add blue water glasses for that extra touch.Bell jars add a soft vintage look to a wedding or cake table, jar filled with hydrangea and lace.

To end at Passion for Flowers we just had to share this image captured by the Barbers of a summer vintage tea party with tall candelabra with blue hydrangeas, herbs and a mix of vintage roses. The tones picked up by bunting by the bride’s family and soft pashminas on the chairs. What a great alternative to chair covers!
Earlier this summer we were contacted by Cat and Adrian from Billingham Photography, we have worked with Cat and Adrian before on wedding shoots and absolutely love their work so we were excited to be involved in their latest concept.
This shoot in a corn field was actually the day after a shoot they had organised at Broadway Tower (will share the photos from that shoot another day). The sun decided to show itself and the Billingham’s took the opportunity to capture the natural beauty of a near by corn field. The setting was stunning, the fields had been freshly cut leaving hay bales scattered throughout them.
We love the results. What do you think?We kept the flowers simple for this wedding shoot and supplied a range of Lisianthus in pastel pinks and lilacs as well as some beautifully delicate Sweet Peas. A couple of the props were supplied by The Wedding of my Dreams ~ French Perfume Bottles were filled with soft Sweet Peas and Delphinium Petal Confetti was blown away by the bride.
