This was a dream come true for them, Amy was really keen on using the garden setting, as we arrived to set up it wasn’t looking good but as we were creating the arch we just kept her dream in mind and all the guests joined them for this most romantic wedding.

So last weekend was epic we had an amazing time decorating Longbourn Barn for an amazing couple Megan and Tom. Longbourn Barn is a real authentic barn, set in the beautiful English countryside. The barn is a blank canvas, very rustic with a french feel to it as you drive up the driveway. This is the second time we have been fortunate enough to be at the barn this summer and were just blown away by all the beauty.
These are just a taster of the photos by the talented photographers.We cant wait to see the full photos including the epic look inside the barn using rose gold stands with statement blooms and epic top table flowers as well as lots of surprises.
With all our love and huge congratulations to Megan and Tom. xxx
Megan chose an elegant style for her maids and her flowers, blousy hydrangeas with a dusting of eucalyptus to keep the look cool on a hot day and a trailing bouquet of blush sweet avalanche roses, avalanche roses and blousy hydrangea finished with trailing ivy as a nod to her beautiful baby girl Ivy. Megan is a very lucky girl as you will see she surprised everyone with a change of dress after her church wedding before going into a fully decorated barn and delicious gourmet meal.
‘Artists Days’ or any ‘Day Out’ is good for creatives and for the soul. I have long been an admirer of Sabine Darrall but had not had the opportunity to visit her at Lynne Down Barn in Herefordshire. The drive through the countryside gave me chance to unwind and I was all set for a great day out.
The designs we are often asked for by our brides are natural and cascading and it was lovely to spend a day with a small group of florists to exchange ideas and create some beauty. The cascading bouquets were so light hold and all looked very different. I choose seasonal peony and rose blooms and foliage much of which was locally grown. It is the delicacy of the trailing elements that helped pull the design together jasmine trails, scented honeysuckle, philiadelphus, grasses and ammi are firm favourites for a cascading bouquet. Ribbon trails beautifull finish off the bouquet and Elsie the dog was waiting to get in the photo.
Looking for tall wedding centrepice ideas for your Hampton Manor wedding? Hampton Manor suits tall centrepieces. At the spring wedding fair we showed our two newest floral stands both of which would be perfect for Hampton Manor, depending on your style. This rustic branch stands would also suit barn wedding venues, or could be used as floor standing arrangements to frame your ceremony in The Birches and later used on the tables.
TALL GOLD STANDS
Tall gold stands are great for adding height and a WOW factor to a room. Here a lush arrangement with trailing foliage and a mix of scented roses, ranunculus, tuberose and tulips filled the room with scent and romance. The stands can be set out along tables or to form a top table arrangement. Smaller vases and candlesticks along the table finish the look.
TALL RUSTIC CENTREPICES – BRANCH STANDS
Tall bronze branch stands add an element of drama to the room, they suit relaxed mixed foliage displays with highlights of seasonal blooms. Here we added a mix of beautiful English tulips perfect for a spring wedding. These stands can be used floor standing at the entrance to a room, either side of the aisle or ceremony and later for the dinner.
Extra details are always appreciated a single stem to the chair and place setting is a lovely touch.
We were delighted to style the enchanting chapel at Compton Verney which is now available for wedding ceremonies. The white interior needs a natural look and so we choose an entrance welcome of a mix of aged lanterns and simple decoration inside the chapel. We lined the aisle with a mix of bronze gold bottles with the softest of grasses. The main ceremony arrangements were natural and organic in style with a mix of white and green in bronze urns sat on pedestal bases.

The choice of wedding bouquet is one of the key decisions for any wedding as the bouquet is one of the most photographed pieces of the day.
STUNNING WEDDING CAKE
The icing on the cake for any wedding is a cake from Ben the Cakeman. This semi naked cake design is just so stunning. We love to meet Ben on the morning of the wedding with fresh flowers which he then works his magic on to create an amaziing look which always surpasses our expectations. His attention to detail is beyond comparison and this wedding cake was a real beauty.

Creating flowers at Hampton Manor for weddings is always a treat, the warm wood, stone arches in this arts and craft house need the right floral touches to bring them to life. If your budget permits staircase flowers are a wow factor statement. The bride and her bridesmaids will walk down these stairs before heading to their ceremony, walking through an avenue of flowers is the perfect way to start your day, and imagine the photos your photographer will get!
These staircase flowers will be a focal point during your drinks reception creating a warm welcome for your guests and setting the tone for the rest of your day before they head through to Elizabeth’s Court. Here at Passion for Flowers we always jump at the chance to decorate the staircase for a wedding. Foliage, seasonal blooms and dashes of candlelight show you what can be done. This is for an autumn wedding but the look can be adapted depending on the season you have chosen to tie the knot.
