BRIDAL BOUQUET – CRIPPS BARN WEDDING CEREMONY

Hannah chose a Claire Pettibone dress Viola which suited her beautifully. A rustic glamour inspired wedding will work wonderfully at Cripps Barn. The bridal bouquet was designed with the dress in mind. Flowers we included were selected from a mix of roses, with stocks and delphiniums.

CLASSIC ELEGANT WEDDING FLOWERS AT THE HEATH HOUSE [PART 2 OF JIN & ATUL’S WEDDING]

Stunning blush pink and teal bouquet by @kmorganflowers Passion for Flowers

Somethings happen for a reason and I was lucky enough to meet Jin and Atul at a Wedding Fair when they came to meet their String Quartet and they fell in love with our flower designs. We worked with Jin and Atul from a distance in the early planning stages as they were planning their wedding from their base in Scotland. We later visited their elegant wedding venue The Heath House together to finalise details. Wedding at The Heath House Staffordshire (2)Wedding at The Heath House Staffordshire (4)

PART ONE OF JIN AND ATUL’S WEDDING – HINDU CEREMONY AT THE HEATH HOUSE

Jin and Atul had an amazing wedding day with 2 celebrations. As we were preparing for the afternoon English ceremony guests and family were already mingling for the first part of this amazing day filled with so much emotion.  Atul and his family gathered for the Sehra Bandi ceremony, where the family gathers to pray and attach the Sehra, a heavily embroidered veil, to Atul’s turban. To hear the music and catch a glimpse of procession of the Baraat was so wonderful. We did not create flowers for the morning celebration but just had to share these beautiful images captured so tenderly by Jo Hastings Photography.

Charlotte and Chris chose the elegant setting of the Adams Hall at Compton Verney for their wedding. It is always a pleasure to work with the team at Compton Verney, fellow award winners in The Wedding Industry Awards.

Working with the seasons and time of year is always key to a successul look for the day and this spring wedding was a delight to design.

Another beautiful wedding from our blog archives that we thought you might not have seen. Isobel and Ed were married back in May 2013 the ceremony was held at Princethorpe College and then on to Park Farm in Upper Shuckburgh for the reception. The couple were after a country garden rustic inspired wedding with pretty flowers, hessian, twine, fruit crates and straw bales.

COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING FLOWERS

At our consultation we highlighted a number of flowers which we would use throughout the day, these included peonies, hydrangeas in cream, pink and blue, avalanche and sweet avalanche roses, wax flower, gyposphila with eucalyptus. The choice of flowers offered a great mix of soft rounded shapes and texture for contrast to create the country garden rustic look they were after.

COUNTRY GARDEN BRIDAL BOUQUET

Isobel’s bridal bouquet was a handtied mix of country garden flowers, she had beautiful pink peonies, white peonies, blush pink roses with highlights of wax flower, gypsophila and astilbe. We used an off cut of lace from her dress to wrap the handle of the bouquet so it tied in with her dress perfectly, pinned onto the bouquet handle was a stunning brooch that belonged to her Granny.

COLOURFUL BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The bridesmaids wore colourful dresses, all six bridesmaids had a different coloured dress which worked well for this relaxed style of wedding. For each bridesmaid we created a bouquet which complimented her dress. The bouquets were all made from a mix of hydrangeas and roses with extra foliage and flowers for textures, we used different colours of hydrangeas and roses for each of the girls. The bouquet handles were all wrapped with hessian and raffia to create a relaxed country feel.

COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING FLOWERS IN THE MARQUEE

At Park Farm there was a lovely set up of tipis, hay bales covered in cosy blankets and the main marquee to welcome guests. We focused our floral decorations in the main marquee.

The marquee was filled with colourful country bunting strung from the roof with paper pom poms and lanterns hanging down at various points, this created a real wow factor was guests walked into the marquee for the first time. On the tables we laid out our hessian runners and squares of hessian over the linen cloths to create more interest.

long guest tables at weddings hessian table runners (1)

The top table had a central arrangement which sat in front of the bride and groom, running along the length of the table were a mix of bottles filled with flowers of the day. The bride and her bridesmaids wanted to get involved with decorating so did these bottles themselves as well as hanging up hearts around the marquee and other finishing touches.

pink peonies in bottles

The guest tables had a country rustic cream jug placed on a hessian square, we used a mix of hydrangeas, wax flower, peonies, roses, gyp and eucalyptus in these which smelt divine. We tied raffia around the jugs which the table number was pegged onto. Isobel had collected candles and tea lights to scatter around the tables.

COUNTRY GARDEN TABLE PLAN

We made Isobel and Ed’s wedding table plan from white washed wooden crates which we hung small silver buckets from and filled with peonies, roses and wax flower. Each bucket represented a different table and had a list of the guests names tied to the front of it.

pastel coloured hydrangea bouquets flower crown blue pink green

Caroline and Rob’s wedding has been featured on Rock My Wedding today! We loved working on this wedding last summer, Caroline and Rob’s wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns was oh so beautiful. Their colour palette was a range of pastel tones inspired by watercolour.

The bouquets were a mix of blues, greens and pinks using hydrangeas and roses for a blousy look. Caroline loved her flower crown, she wore it all through the day.

We blogged this wedding back in the summer, see the full feature here to read all about her flowers (bouquets, flower crown, hanging globes & crates) and even more wedding details.

SANDON HALL WEDDING – ELEGANT BLUE AND WHITE WEDDING FLOWERS

Blue and White Bridesmaids Bouquets with Nave Bridesmaids Dresses by Passion for Flowers

Bethan and Mark were married last spring at All Saints, the parish church of Sandon, before celebrating their marriage with a drinks reception in Sandon Hall and a wedding breakfast in the stunning marquee. After meeting with Bethan at Sandon Hall we worked on ideas for her cream, white and navy colour scheme to include some blue tones in the flowers perfect for a spring wedding. We just loved their elegant blue and white wedding and felt extremely priveleged to create their wedding flowers.

BLUE AND WHITE TRAILING BRIDAL BOUQUET

Bethan was certain she wanted a trailing bridal bouquet and we designed  a trailing mixed bouquet with a relaxed  look with avalanche roses, scented freesias, feathery astilbe, trailing ivy, eucalyptus, lisianthus, with some blue tones in the flowers from delphiniums and love in a mist just perfect with her elegant dress and veil.

CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS – STONE URNS

All Saints church at Sandon is a wonderful stone building and we felt that the stone urns on plinths would keep everything looking very natural. We added some blousy hydrangea to the mix of tulips, freesia, nigella love in a mist, delphiniums, and plenty of eucalyptus and ivy to create a larger entrance arrangement . Outside the church we set up a mix of spring blooms in a wooden crate and a small posy was placed in the churchyard.

SANDON HALL MARQUEE WEDDING – CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES

In the marquee at Sandon Hall we created beautiful candelabra centrepieces for the tables. The silver candelabra created an elegant look and the white of the marquee was the perfect backdrop for such stunning arrangements with soft spring flowers and plenty of natural foliage. I just love the pop of the blue delphiniums in the mix of flowers.

I have a wonderful job meeting so many lovely couples in the build up to their  wedding day and so wanted to share this lovely note from Bethan and Mark.

‘Thank you so much for the incredible flowers and arrangements you put together for our wedding. They were simply stunning and complemented my dress, my bridesmaids’ dresses and the surroundings absolutely perfectly.

I still have no idea how you managed to produce the flowers of my dreams with the very few snippets of information I gave you, a credit to your incredible talent! You made the whole process so easy and we knew we had absolutely nothing to worry about as far as our flowers were concerned. Thank you!’

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC CRATE

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

Are you thinking of having a go at doing your wedding flowers yourself? We have been working with Rock My Wedding to put together some easy to follow step by step guides (see our other step by step tutorials here). Today we show you how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic style weddings using a wooden crate as your container.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC CRATE

Follow our step by step instructions as this is what you will end up with – perfect for a rustic centrepiece.

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

To create a relaxed rustic or country style look we have chosen a mix of flowers, including pittosporum, light blue hydrangeas, blue delphiniums, pink wax flower, Sweert Avalanche roses, dahlias, amni and blue veronica.

A similar wooden crate can be purchased from our online boutique, The Wedding of my Dreams, you will need to paint this white (or leave it with a the wooden finish it is up to you).

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

1. Line the wooden crate with cellophane or even a plastic bag if you don’t have cellophane.

2. Cut a piece of oasis to size and soak in a bucket of water.

3. Place the oasis inside the wooden crate on a plastic oasis tray.

4. Now it is time to starting adding the flowers, to begin with edge the box with your chosen foliage. Here we suggest edging it with the pittosporum and pink wax flower.

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowersstep by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

5. Once you have added foliage you should position the key flowers in the oasis. So, this is the hydrangeas, roses and dahlias.

6. Remember to cut your stems on a diagonal to increase the surface area which enables them to drink more water.

7. Fill in any gaps with your remaining flowers.

8. As this is going in the centre of you tables, or perhaps running down the centre of a long table make sure you look at it from different angles to make sure there are no gaps. If you find some gaps just fill them in with foliage or any remaining flowers.

This centrepiece is ideal for a relaxed rustic or country wedding. If blue and pinks aren’t your colours you can use different flowers. Have a look at our pinterest board ‘Flower Library – What’s That Flower Called’ to browse some of our favourite wedding flowers, it also tells you which season they are available in. Or if you are having long guest tables rather than round we suggest you make a few of these and line them up down the length of the table, this can also look good on the top table.

 

Leave us a comment if you have a go at making this, we’d love to hear how you get on and see pictures.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS FEATURED IN WEDDING FLOWERS AND ACCESSORIES MAGAZINE

passion for flowers wedding flowers and accessories magazine

Here at Passion for Flowers we love seeing our work in print. A couple of months ago we took our floral designs down to London for a shoot with Wedding Flowers and Accessories Magazine. Here is the finished result – we created mixed blooms in pinks, blues and greens for a bright Summer look.

passion for flowers wedding flowers and accessories magazinepassion for flowers wedding flowers and accessories magazineTHE BOUQUET

For the bouquet we created a relaxed hand tied bouquet of pink, white, green and blue hydrangeas with touches of pink astilbe, veronica, wax flowers and seeded eucalyptus. Tied with vintage lace and a brooch.

WHITEWASHED WOODEN CRATE CENTREPIECE

For the centrepiece we used a wooden crate (available from The Wedding of my Dreams) and painted it white. We used similar flowers to the bouquet for a relaxed look. We included mixed colours of hydrangeas, blush pink roses, wax flower, astilbe and eucalyptus.

BUTTONHOLE

The buttonhole was an amnesia rose, snippet of blue hydrangea and eucalyptus tied with rustic twine.

PLACE SETTING

The place setting shown on the green napkin was a small bunch including a snippet of blue hydrangea, blush pink rose, eucalyptus and wax flower tied with twine. These make pretty place settings for the ladies.

This mix of flowers would suits a relaxed wedding, perhaps at a barn or in a marquee during the Spring or Summer. This mix of colours are also perfect if you have chosen a watercolour theme for your wedding.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FLOWER CROWNS + HANGING GLOBES

Caroline and Rob tied the knot at Shustsoke Farm Barns on 1 August surrounded by family and friends. Caroline enjoyed the planning of her summer wedding and had a great eye for colour, the one thing she was certain of was she wanted to wear a flower crown for her wedding cermeony and hanging globes in the barn.

FLOWER CROWN – PINK, BLUE & GREEN HYDRANGEAS & ROSES

At our first meeting Caroline arrived with a gorgeous water colour board with inspiration for her day, tones of pinks, blues and greens. The flower crown we designed was very blousy and suited her curls on the day with a mix of pink, blue and green hydrangea with Sweet Avalanche and Ocean song roses. When the flowers were delivered in the morning the squeals of delight were wonderful to hear. The happiness captured in these photos at the start of the day continued throughout the day. What a beautiful relaxed and happy wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – CEREMONY FLOWERS

The ceremony barn was filled with flowers, Rob had made a rustic wooden planter for us to fill with blooms from the day – hydrangeas, feathery astilbe, eucalyptus and roses with moss to edge. Together with the large hanging flower globes filled with a mix of hydrangeas and eucalyptus the wooden planter gave just the look Caroline and Rob had hoped for. I just love the rustic tree slice ring box.

BRIDAL & BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – BRIGHT SUMMER FLOWERS

Caroline brought one of the dresses over to show me so we could finalise colours for the bouquets and we had great fun selecting such lovely bright summer flowers in colours of pink, green, lilac and blue. The long lace trailing ribbons for the bridesmaids added a good contrast to their floral dresses and finished off the look. The lace was also used to trail from Caroline’s flower crown. The bride herself carried a large bouquet of mixed hydrangeas and roses to offset her flower crown. Caroline bought cream jugs and attached personal tags for each of her maids.

As guests and finally the bridal party arrived at Shustoke Famr Barns they were greeted by a rustic country style flower garland hanging above the oak doors to the barn. Once inside everyone  was greeted with a wonderfully hand crafted table plan and so many other personal touches.

Caroline had seen photos of one of our previous barn weddings and just knew she wanted large flower globes to be part of her day. The hanging globes are a great treat for us to create and we just love how they can transform this large space. If you are having your ceremony at the barn, followed by the meal and then the evening the hanging globes can be enjoyed throughout the day and add that extra WOW factor to your day.

WEDDING CAKE ON A TREE SLICE WITH FLOWERS

The wedding cake just needed simple blooms to add a touch of colour and be set on a rustic tree slice. We love the bit of whimsy with the beetle and the ladybird.

It is over a year since we first designed wedding flowers for Shustoke Farm Barns and we just love returning time after time as it gives us the opportunity to style it differently for each and every wedding. Our style is always in keeping with the natural look and feel of this wonderful wedding venue.
