We love decorating and styling weddings and events at Hampton Manor and enjoy keeping in touch with the look and feel of the seasons.
AUTUMN WEDDING CENTREPIECES FOR LONG TABLES – GOLD VASES & TALL GOLD STANDS
Adding gold footed urns and tall gold stands to the long tables creates an opulent look to the tables. Teaming these with flowers and foliage in warm berry tones adds a richness to the designs, small gold posy vases and candlesticks complete the look.
GLASS AND CANDLELIGHT ELEGANT WEDDING CENTREPIECES FOR LONG TABLES
Choose glass vases and a mix of glass footed vases with church candles for an elegant look to your wedding. Blush flowers give a lightness to the look and foliage could be added to entwine through the designs.
GOLD FLORAL STANDS WITH LARGE FOLIAGE ARRANGEMENTS AND BRASS LANTERNS ALONG THE LONG TABLES
Foliage is very much a firm favourite for long tables and these elevated designs on gold stands create a wow factor look to the tables. Here we set brass lanterns with church candles to add interest to the table and echo the shape of the stands.
This gorgreous 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 creating something gorgeous and floral around it to make even more of a stement than it already is.
At the most recent wedding fair I created this asymetic 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.
Jessi and Jamie asked us to create a ‘Secret Garden’ look and feel to the English part of their wedding celebrations. We loved coming up with ideas and working with this lovely couple to create their wedding look. It is so wonderful when our couples have confidence in us and give us comments like this:
“Thank you so much Karen! We trust you completely so whatever you think would make the feel of it come alive works for us! “
Jessi carried a romantic white peony bouquet and for her maids a bunch of scented lavender keep the look natural and so so English.
HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING CEREMONY
CYLINDER VASE LANTERNS, BRONZE FLORAL STANDS & A DOG
Well we loved creating this look for this romantic look with cylinder vases down the aisle, bronze stands with natural arrangements including English Margaret Merrill roses, ferns, trailing foliage and clematis with simple bunches of English lavender to the chairs. Most of all we loved their beloved dog Oreo who stole the show in his bespoke waistcoat.
So when your couple love books and especially the Secret Garden that gives plenty of scope for the most beautiful set up in Hampton Manor. Moss runners and books, delicate ferns in china tea cups and the most beautiful blooms created a gorgeous look and feel to the room. Jamie is one romantic groom and there was not a dry eye in the room when he surprised his bride with an interruption to the speeches when an amateur dramatic group began renditions from Les Miserables, her favourite musical. This was performed in front of her eyes and was one incredible surprise.
CHEESE WEDDING CAKE AND CAKE TABLE FLOWERS
The cake table was decorated with English lavender bunches, a mix of moss covered books and blooms from the day. Crystal decanters with scented peonies and grasses kept the look soft and romantic.
EVENING TABLE CENTREPIECES WITH CANDLES
As the guests headed back to the room for the evening celebrations they were greeted by a change of scene with candlelit tables.
We are eternally thankful for the lovely couples who chose us for their wedding flowers and styling and to the venues we dress and of course the photographers who capture their days so beautifully.
Thank you Jamie and Jessi and all our good wishes for the next stage of this romantic story.
So we always love an epic wedding and thought you would love to see more of this amazing wedding at Longbourn Barn Kineton, one of our favourite’s of the year.
Longbourn Barn Kineton Wedding
We were thankful when Meg and her Mum came to meet us to ask us to create the florals for this gorgeous flower filled wedding. We visited Longbourn Barn together and fell in love with the setting. It offers a space where couples can stamp their mark on it for their wedding day set in the most amazing Warwickshire countryside.
Meg and Tom started their wedding day with a church ceremony with their beautiful daughter taking centre stage. The couple remained radiant and happy throughout their day and all the joy in their lives came together for all to see. We created a bountiful and full bouquet for Meg to carry.
Longbourn Barn Kineton Organ Room
Longbourn Barn has plenty of unexpected features, here the Organ Room is perfect for displaying the bouquets, in addition to her bridal bouquet we created bouquets for Meg’s 6 stylish bridesmaids. Pillar candles added to the romance perfect for this setting.
Wedding Gin Barn, Longbourn Barn
At our first site meeting we heard that Meg and her Mum were looking to create their own bar and had found an old pink van which they were going to transform into an amazing gin bar. Little did we know at the time how epic this transformation was and that it would be be featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces. We were delighted to add some finishing touches to the look with the personalised sign we commissioned.
Longbourne Barn Kineton, Wedding Reception
In the run up to the wedding Meg, Tom and the assembled team of helpers worked tirelessly to ensure nothing was left undone. We just loved creating the florals for inside the barn including the table designs. The large barn could carry off large statement florals set on high rose gold risers. Elegant candle light was added to the tables and the round tables were set with lush florals around an elegant rose gold hurricane vase. Meg had collected so many gorgeous pieces and the geometric marble chargers were a great look for the tables.
This epic wedding was full of surprises and we knew of one little secret that the bride and her mum had kept from everyone. Meg had not one but two stunning wedding gowns and totally rocked the world when she surprised everyone when she walked down from the hay loft in her second amazing dress. This brought tears of joy to everyone’s eye and the party started in earnest.
Acrylic Wedding Seating Plan
The acrylic wedding seating plan was set as a welcome for guests once inside the barn and enabled everyone to find their seat with ease and style.
Meg and Tom
It was a pleasure to create the flowers for your wedding at Longbourn Barn, you rocked your day and are the most beautiful couple.
The garden marquee at Birtsmorton Court can be styled for your wedding, as a regular Birtsmorton Court wedding florist we have decorated this marquee many times but this was one of our favourites. When your couple asks you for a rustic woodland top table we get excited, we have lots of woodland props and vases available for styling and loved creating this rustic setting for a spring wedding. Tree slices along the top table, terracotta pots and glass jars/bottles with blooms including roses, ranunculus, broom with ivy gave a soft and calming look to the room. Dotted along the table were various rustic wooden tea light holders and the table numbers were held up by tiny tree stump card holders.

We love weddings at Shustoke Farm Barns and the atmosphere there suits laid back wedding styles. Fay and Andrew created a laid back feel beautifully captured by our photographer friends Anna and Simon Clarke.
BUTTONHOLES FOR THE GROOMSMEN
Thistles and viburnum berries created a relaxed look for the button holes for the groomsmen with rose bud and thistle wrist corsages for the girls.
DECORATING THE AISLE AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS
The aisle was simply decorated with bunches of gypsophila and thistle tied on with blue and tartan ribbons.
RUSTIC STYLING DETAILS AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS
There are plenty of nooks and crannies to add rustic styling details at Shustoke Farm Barns, the brickwork is a really great backdrop for rustic decoration.
LARGE HANGING HOOPS AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS FOR A RELAXED LOOK
The Barn always benefits from over sized decoration and our large hanging hoops look great decorated to tie in with the colours and style of your wedding day. Here we included masses of foliage and clouds of gypsophila for a laid back look.
CEREMONY TABLE FLOWERS
The ceremony table is a main part of the ceremony and looks good bedecked with laid back bunches of blooms from the day, scented peonies, stocks, hydrangea and lashing of foliage create the relaxed look required.
STYLING DETAILS AROUND THE BARN

The world map table plan from the Wedding of My Dreams c]gave Fay and Andrew the chance to create a beautifully styled table plan for their guests.
LAID BACK TRAVEL THEMED WEDDING CENTREPIECES
The couple continued the travel ideas with their fun, laid back centrepieces for the tables.
The courtyard is a fun place for family and friends to relax during the wedding day. Here balloons from our other website The Wedding of my Dreams created a backdrop for the musicians.

CREAM & GREEN BOUQUETS FOR THE BRIDE AND HER BRIDESMAIDS
CANDELABRA WEDDING CENTREPIECES – HAMPTON MANOR
WEDDING CAKE TABLE FLOWERS – WE PROVIDED VASES FOR THE BOUQUETS TO SIT IN ON THE CAKE TABLE
‘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.
Well we are delighted to say we enjoyed working with Pandora and Rock My Wedding again on this pretty editorial shoot. It is always a dream team and a way to a girl’s heart with beautiful jewels, gorgeous dresses, and great styling.
It was lovely to be invited to celebrate the opening of Barton Court a beautiful wedding venue. As the owner Linda told me “This glorious house will appeal to all those couples for whom the bland hotel wedding is simply not an option. For those who insist on authenticity, intimacy, creativity and charm – and on a truly magical setting for their most important day, Barton Court will be ideal.”
“Barton Court is all about love. Henry Lambert created the estate in 1780 as a gift for his soon-to-be wife. We fell in love with it at first sight. It is a perfect little gem of a country house set in 6 acres of private grounds surrounded by some of the finest views in the country.”
Barton Court is a small country house estate, made up of the main house and several interesting outbuildings set in 6 acres of gardens. The property sits on the edge of the village of Colwall near Malvern and Ledbury and has uninterrupted views of the glorious countryside that surrounds it.
The main house, the Clock Tower and the ancillary buildings can be rented for short breaks, weddings and events, altogether, in various combinations or separately.
We have not yet worked at Barton Court as it is new to the wedding world, but we are happy to recommend this venue to our couples and would be delighted to work with the team at Barton House on weddings. These photos below were taken from their open day to show how the venue can be dressed, flowers by talented florists whose work we enjoyed.Sabine Darrall is a great favourite of ours and we loved how she had decorated the entrance hall in such an organic and natural style. The ceremony barn was beautifully dressed by Helen Walker of BrideandBloom with an arch and meadow style planting to line the aisle.
BARTON COURT WEDDING VENUE
Barton Court is a unique building with plenty of character.
WEDDING CEREMONY AT BARTON COURT
WEDDING BREAKFAST AT BARTON COURT
There is plenty of space for a delightful wedding breakfast. Here it was set out with a long table and a mix of candles and pretty blooms in footed vases.
WEDDING PARTY AT BARTON COURT
The marquee set up by the team at goodintents is the perfect place for a party. Marquees always look lovely with hanging arrangements to continue the tone and look of the wedding. Sabine created some natural arrangements with plenty of style.
Thank you Linda and James for inviting me over. Wishing you all the best with your venue. For further information on Barton Court visit.
We usually use our birch arch covered in flowers and foliage to create a rustic frame for a wedding ceremony. Here is another use for it. At the recent Hampton Manor wedding fair, we showed our birch arch as a backdrop with a bespoke scroll hanging from it. This backdrop could be used behind the wedding ceremony, behind a top table or behind a cake table or dessert bar.
The scroll reads “Love is old, love is new, love is all, love is you” but we would love to create this to say something of your choice.
BIRCH ARCH SCROLL WEDDING BACKDROP
A wedding backdrop is a great styling trick to add to your venue decor. Here a pared-back birch arch has a personalised scroll and delicate foliage, glass hanging baubles, rustic tree stumps, an abundance of candles and relaxed planting and florals to create a great backdrop for your wedding day.
ALTERNATIVE WREATH – CART WHEEL
For an alternative wreath, we created an asymmetric floral decoration around an old cartwheel, perfect for welcoming guests to your wedding ceremony. Here the arrow reads flowers, but for a ceremony, we could change it to welcome, or later for drinks or bar.
New Year’s Eve is a special time for celebrations and we were honoured to assist Kristin and Tim with their wedding flowers and styling at Hampton Manor. This gorgeous couple chose to come back to England to share their day with family and friends from around the globe. We enjoyed skyping with Kristin who is based in Bejing in the build up to her wedding to ensure we delivered the elegant winter wedding she desired.
The bouquets were large organic free form is style with a textured mix of foliage eucalyptus, ozmanthus, dotted with brunia berries, thistle, lisianthus, roses, and ranunculus.
THE CEREMONY – BIRCH ARBOUR
The ceremony was a beautiful affair with a birch arbour trimmed with the softest drapes to create a soft, romantic backdrop. The organic mix of foliage and flowers was continued throughout the day with hand tied bunches of foliage to the aisle chairs to bring the outdoors in. A traditional Chinese tea ceremony was an integral part of the ceremony. Here tea is lovingly poured by Kristin.
As they left the Birches the Kristin and Tim were showered with confetti to celebrate their marriage.
LONG TABLE FLORALS AND CANDLES – NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING
Long tables enabled family and friends from around the globe to connect, chat, and enjoy the food selected for this special wedding day. Fresh foliage was entwined the length of the long tables delicately interspersed with touches of white illuminated with gold candlesticks for a romantic look.
NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING PARTY
The evening was enjoyed as guests celebrated and welcomed in the New Year in style under the amazing chandelier in Elizabeth’s Court. These images are captured by the talented Fjona Weiling.
Thank you Kristin and Tim for putting your trust in us, we loved being part of the magic of your New Year’s Eve Wedding.
