I just love seeing photos from our couple’s big day. Today I thought I’d share Kat and Luke’s micro wedding from September 2020 with you. They were married at Derby Registry Office and had bright yellow blooms (Kat’s favourite colour) mixed with fresh green and whites. It was such a happy day.
Now restrictions have lifted slightly I am so happy to be getting back in the swing of things. I’m busy preparing for our upcoming weddings of all shapes and sizes, I am just so pleased our couples are able to finally get married.
If you are looking for inspiration for an elegant winter wedding then I thought you would love this one. Hampton Manor plays host to many happy events during the year but it is the home of winter weddings. Hannah and Rick chose the Manor as the setting for their elegant romantic wedding in December.
WINTER WEDDING FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – BOUQUETS
For an elegant winter wedding forgot the strong Christmas vibes of red and green and embrace the season with the softest of roses, brunia berries, wax flowers and lashing of eucalyptus.
We love working with venues on editorial shoots and this opportunity with The Brand Studio Co and a very talented team of suppliers was a great collaboration. The white and green palette was modern and timeless.
Light came streaming in through the windows and the top table was decorated with footed bowls filled with flowers and a mixture of lanterns, candlesticks and votives set out the lightest touch of eucalyptus foliage.
It is lovely to see Moxhull Hall using some of these images in their new brochure and on their website inspiring couples to come and see their wonderful venue. If you are looking for a florist please get in touch.
We met Beth and Blair at the Hampton Manor Wedding Fayre and Beth fell in love with our natural flowers and romantic table with soft roses and crystal vases with candlelight for an elegant look for her wedding. At our consultations, we discussed their vision for the day and how we could bring that to life. We also added in ideas to include the white thistle as Blair and a number of the party would be wearing kilts. We were thrilled to hear they had booked Fjona to capture their day, it is always lovely to work with her.
Beth and her maids carried natural bouquets with a soft and natural mix of flowers from her day. The blooms including the blousy Charity rose, Bridesmaid and Quicksand roses, eucalyptus, white thistle, spray roses and frilly lisianthus and with some of the deep-toned dusky pink sedum.

Steph carried a winter bridal bouquet with deep burgundy red roses, softer toned quicksand roses, touches of nigella seed heads and a mix of eucalyptus to finish.
WINTER WEDDING BLACKWELL GRANGE – THE CEREMONY

Hannah’s large wild bouquet was predominantly foliage with touches of deep red and featured protea and trailing ribbons. Candles in glass cylinders lined the aisle and we created a backdrop to frame the couple as they said their I Do’s.

Within Elizabeth’s Court we added touches of floral decor all around. We decorated the bespoke table plan and provided gold vases for the bouquets to sit in during the meal to create extra floral decorations. We laid foliage down the length of the tables with candles spread out for a romantic wintery glow.
One of the joys of the start of the year is that we have chance to cherish the photos of our weddings from the busy wedding season. Just take a look at the beautiful, elegant wedding of Sarah and James at Hampton Manor. This couple are what weddings are all about having the day you wish and plan for and enjoying every single moment, they are the most lovely pair inside and out.

I can not put into words or thank you enough for your work yesterday.
You are so incredibly talented. From our first meeting I came away with complete and utter confidence in your work. I even said to family and friends that it was like you could read my mind as you just understood my vision from the offset.
From my bouquet, to the candles, ceremony room, Elizabeth’s court and even the foliage on the welcome signs every single detail was EXACTLY how I envisioned. I was looking at the table at 11pm candles were still burning, creating the most wonderful evening ambiance inside and outside Elizabeth’s court.
I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for us and I am so so happy to have had the opportunity to work with you and have you part of our wedding journey. You are inspirational!
This gorgeous wooden door at Hampton Manor is in the main dining room of Elizabeth’s Court. I’ve been eyeing it up for ages wanting to create something gorgeous and floral around it to make even more of a statement than it already is.
At the most recent wedding fair, I created this asymmetric arch style floral display – which isn’t an arch at all! We loved out final creation and guests just loved it. Many Hampton Manor couples use this door as a photo backdrop so florals would certainly enhance this setting.
The 2 floral posts could be used anywhere, often we create something similar at an entrance to a church or between large pillars and arches within venues.
TIMELESS ELEGANT WEDDING AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – WHITE & GREEN BRIDAL PARTY BOUQUETS
White and green is forever elegant and always stunning for bridal party bouquets. The hand-tied bridal bouquet with a natural mix of roses, foliage and a mix of textured flowers including veronica with the stems bound in ivory ribbon created an elegant look to suit Laura’s dress. The young flower girl carried a whimsical posy of spray roses and the bridesmaids an elegant mix of green foliage and roses.
For the wedding ceremony Laura and Simon knew they wanted a natural look with a garland of foliage and flowers from their day, elegant cylinder vases with candles and definitely some over-sized hanging rings to bring the barn to life.
BRONZE, GOLD, GLASS & GREEN CENTREPIECES & VENUE STYLING
The eucalyptus theme continued into the beautiful signs and stationery Laura had designed. The overall look for the day was an elegant bronze, gold and green scheme with lots of detail and candlelight. We love working with our couples in the styling of the day and offering them the wedding look they love.
EUCALYPTUS FOLIAGE PLACE SETTINGS
A sprig of scented eucalyptus added to the place setting is an elegant and thoughtful touch for each guest.
BRASS FRAMES TO CREATE WEDDING SIGNAGE & TABLE NAMES
Laura chose brass frames from our collection of props to which we added her table names. It is all in the detail and this wedding was simple, elegant and with everything styled together.
WEDDING CAKE FLOWERS TO NAKED WEDDING CAKE
Spray roses and snippets of eucalyptus were added to the cake from Butter Cream and Dreams.
Thank you Laura and Simon for sharing your wedding photos and your kind words
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing the flowers for our wedding. It was PERFECT and you’ve been super helpful from start to finish!
We had the best day ever and everyone commented on how beautiful the venue looked so honestly thank you so much! “
That is why we love what we do to here at Passion for Flowers.
We love travelling around the country to create weddings with stylish couples and jumped at the chance to decorate an epic barn for the wedding of Tiffany and Kris in September. A site visit is essential if we have not worked at a venue before, visiting together with Tiffany and her mum gave us the chance to see how we could bring this barn to life.
Tiiffany had clear ideas and was looking for a boho style wedding celebration with white, green, gold, blue and grey colours with a Cinderella look. As the barn is quite dark she was thinking of lots of candles, twinkling lights and white flowers to add light wherever possible. Well take a look a see how this was achieved.
Final morning preparations for button holes and corsages is always a calming task to carry out before the buzz of the wedding day.
BARN CEREMONY WITH CANDLELIGHT & ORGANIC FLORAL DESIGNS FULL OF FOLIAGE
A set up like this needs access the day before for the lighting to go up and the decor to be started. Organic foliage and floral designs decorated the beams and the ceremony tables to form a romantic backdrop to the ceremony.
The bridesmaids carried bountiful bouquets of foliage and flowers.
CEREMONY TABLE AND STAGE FLOWERS
The large stage was dressed with statement decoration including a mix of large lanterns, cylinder vases, rustic wooden tables, and cascading garlands of foliage and flowers.
ELEGANT WRIST CORSAGES
Tiffany’s Mum wore her elegant wrist corsage so well which kept her hands free for her reading.
LANTERN WEDDING CENTREPIECES
Candlelight was central to this wedding and we designed a mix of centrepeices all with a bronze gold look. These elegant lanterns were accented with delicate bronze glass bud vases with a mix of flowers and foliage from the day.
GOLD CANDELABRA WEDDING CENTREPEICES
Tall gold candelabra decorated other guest tables with a generous mix of foliage and flowers.
FULL-LENGTH TOP TABLE GARLANDS
The top table is key to any wedding celebration and is the focus of much of the day. For Tiffany and Kris we created full length top table garlands full of scented eucalyptus foliage, the softest blue hydrangea, spray roses and other blooms and textures from the day. A mix of glass cylinders and bronze gold lanterns were added to light the table and foliage chair backs to complete the look.
THE WEDDING CAKE DECORATIONS – HANGING RING & LANTERNS
So every wedding cake deserves to be centrestage and so we created a hanging ring to be suspended over the wedding cake surrounded by a masse of candles. This was the most romantic setting for Tiffany and Kris to cut their cake in front of family and friends.
Thank you so much Tiffany and Kris for allowing us to be part of your amazing wedding day. The photos captured by Ed Godden are simply stunning.
