Compton Verney Wedding Flowers ~ Crystal Glass & Stone Urns

During the summer we worked on a beautiful wedding at Compton Verney, it was an elegant white wedding with wow factor stone urns and delicate crystal glass vases along the length of long tables. Compton Verney offers a stunning blank canvas for weddings so almost anything can be done with the venue.

Katie and Chris had their wedding ceremony and reception at Compton Verney, it really is a beautiful setting for a wedding, make sure you check it out if you are looking for wedding venues in Warwickshire


We kept the ceremony decoration very simple letting the room speak for itself, on the end of each chair down the aisle we tied a cream rose head. On the ceremony table itself we created a grouping of crystal glass decanters, vases, bowls and cake plates, these are all finds from various charity shops. Along the large window sills that run along one side of the room we also placed crystal vases and containers. These glass vases were all filled with delicate white flowers, from a mix of white hydrangeas, cream roses, cream freesias, blush pink roses, ranunculus and dill.

For the wedding reception the room was set out with long tables in rows. Down the centre of each table we placed crystal vases and decanters of all shapes and sizes, from tiny glass vases to large crystal cake plates. We used a soft mix of flowers in these, white hydrangeas, cream freesias, roses and ranunculus each table was full.

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.

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.

Grafton Manor Wedding Flowers ~Footed Vases & Candelabra With Purple Wedding Flowers

Grafton Manor Wedding Flowers

Grafton Manor is a beautiful wedding venue set in the Worcestershire countryside, it has it’s own chapel on site and marquee off the main house.  We have worked on a number of weddings at Grafton Manor, this wedding had a purple and lilac colour scheme. For these purple wedding flowers we included purple lisianthus, ocean song roses, a hint of white hydrangeas, purple freesias, astrantia and eucalyptus.

It is often a nice idea to mix table centres, not only does it help on budget but also adds variations throughout the room giving interest to each table.

Footed Vases

These footed vases were filled with a purple and white domed arrangement of white hydrangeas, ocean song roses, lilac lisianthus, freesias, astrantia and eucalyptus. The bowl of the footed vase was filled with pearls to give an elegant look.

For a different look these same vases can be filled with moss to create a rustic / woodland feel or glass cubes for a more elegant / modern look.

Candelabra Centrepieces

We used a gorgeous mix of florals choosing a similar mix of purple flowers to the footed vases. Our silver candelabra are 1m high, this is the best height for table candelabra as the arrangement is above eye level when guests are sitting at the table, there is nothing worse than guests not being able to see across the table if the flowers are in the way. With our candelabra the flowers are well above eye level and create a real wow factor when guests first enter the room.

Vintage Wedding Flowers At The Belfry, Midlands

Back in May we worked on a vintage birdcage inspired wedding at The Belfry, Midlands. Working with our bride we decided a mix of soft pink roses and dusky pink roses would suit her theme and initial ideas. The bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets were a mix of vintage roses with snippets of astrantia to add texture. vintage roses bridal bouquet The Belfry Hotel is home to the Ryder Cup and has great views over the 18th hole of golf course. The Wedding breakfast was held in the Ryder Room, vintage inspired bunting was hung all around the room, as guests entered the room it instantly gave it a whimsical feel. Each guest table had an extra large birdcage with a mix of soft pink and dusky pink roses on a bed of moss and gypsophilia with pearls draped through them to add a hint of vintage glamour to the room.

Our bride had created a wonderful table plan using a set of old ladders. The table cards were pegged to the ladders with bottles and jars scattered throughout.
