For an elegant winter wedding there is no better place than Hampton Manor. The team at the Manor are the perfect hosts and we are thrilled to be asked by couples to decorate their weddings with flowers and styling suggestions. Amy and James were married last December in the Birches followed by drinks and canapes in the The Manor and partied with their families and guests in grand style through to the early hours.

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.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW 2015

PASSION FOR FLOWERS STAND AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

At Passion for Flowers we love the chance to design our show stopping stand at The National Wedding Show. We are able to meet so many couples either just starting off on their wedding planning journey or wanting to be inspired for some last minute touches. Our stand showed a glimpse into our style of individually designed weddings. Every wedding is unique and designed with our couples in mind to reflect their tastes, venue and personalities. Passion for Flowers couples love flowers and have them high on their wedding list.

Cascading garlands of scented roses and foliage hung delicately from the muslin drapes. The large tablescape included a mix of bronze and gold vases and vessels filled with an autumnal mix of foliage and soft blooms. The hanging installation created a WOW factor to the stand with trailing amaranthus, roses, helebores and even more cascading foliage. Country house venues with fireplaces are lovely to decorate so we styled a fireplace with an asymetrical garland and bronze candlesticks.

BOUQUET FROM THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

A blousy bouquet in our natural romantic style with a heavenly mix of eucalyptus, astilbe, helebores, lisianthus and scented roses stole the show. We always love the richness of soft ribbons to trail.

Sometimes you have a once in a lifetime opportunity…

I had just such an opportunity in April and decided to attend the Chapel Designers Conference London 2015. This amazing event was put together by floral rockstar Holly Heider Chapple founder of Chapel Designers with the help of Nick Priestly of Mood Flowers.

From the moment we all gathered for drinks in the aptly named The Rose pub to our final tearful moments leaving Simon Lycett’s studio 3 days later we made lifelong friends.  Love of all things floral binds us together and allows this esteemed group of Chapel Designers to nourish and grow. I am honoured to be part of this family of florists from around the world.

chapel designers uk passion for flowers

We had the most wonderful experience and jawdropping selection of florals to choose from at our base in Brixton East. The love, laughter and emotions we all shared encouraged us to create the most amazing florals.

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to meet so many talented designers. Holly inspired me to create this freeform bouquet.

Jo Flowers and Susanne Hatwood gave us a wonderful masterclass on their romantic, natural style of floral creations both have amazing styles and worked effortlessly to create delightful masterpieces. The compote design above I created after being inspired by their designs.

Rhona Wheeldon of Flowerona joined us for a session on Social Media and is was a highlight to meet her and gain some insights to the world of social media.

The photos below are a snapshot of instagram photos and offer an insight into the amazing times we shared. A masterclass from Robbie Honey who created the dramatic rose and eucalyptus urn, an inspiring behind the scenes visit to Simon Lycett’s studio and so much more.

HAIR FLOWERS & HANGING FLOWERS – BROOKLYN INSPIRED WEDDING

hand held floral arch for bride and groom

Every now and then time stops still to celebrate a wonderful marriage of two people so in love. I first met Ellie and Matt when they were down in Birmingham looking at venues for their wedding. They had strong ideas on the feel they hoped to create and took time to find venues and their wedding team.

The Oratory was such a special place for the wedding ceremony and for their initmate gathering of loved ones. In contrast the urban feel of The Church Inn in Birmingham gave us scope to create a great backdrop for their wedding celebrations. They loved the Brooklyn Inspired feel of urban places. Throughout the planning Ellie was happy to let us offer advice and we worked together beautifully to create this amazing moment in time.

We were thrilled to see this wedding featured on Love My Dress recently too.

HAIR FLOWERS

The bridesmaids wore beautiful white dresses individually chosen and we created loose half flower crowns for their hair flowers. Simple, understated but elegant bringing in soft blues, nude, white and stronger purple tones. The hair was styled by our friend Natalie at Bridal Hair Specialists.

WRIST CORSAGES

For a simple but stunning look the girls wore beautifully created wrist corsages keeping to the tones of the day, with astrantia, wax flower and snippets of garden greenery. Ellie looked stunning in her Sarah Willard Couture designed dress.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

Ellie’s bridal bouquet was designed with her dress and personal style in mind. I love brides giving us freedom to work our magic on their flowers and Ellie fell in love with her bridal bouquet. This loose hand tied design included clematis to trail, a mix of roses, astrantia, lilac, tulips, wax flower, amni and helebores with a mix of garden forages for added texture. I just love her gloves to complete her look.

BUTTONHOLES

The button holes were a mix of quicksand roses, wax flower, some with delicate blue snippets of hydrangea. I love this image of Matt with his button hole.

CHURCH DECORATION – CANDLES DOWN THE AISLE

The Oratory is an amazing space and candles down the aisle in all shapes and sizes create the perfect look. It felt like an Italian church with the wonderful architecture and we decided that flowers in church would not do it justice and agreed with Ellie and Matt to go all out for candlelight. The service was so personal and on entering the church the magic and love could be felt.

HANGING FLOWERS

For the gathering after the formal part of the day Ellie knew she wanted hanging flowers to create a wow factor over the drinks table and as a backdrop to speeches and photos. An exhuberant mix of trailing foliage, large hydrangea blooms, trailing amaranthus, tulips threaded through the frame and scented wax flowers brought the room to life.

Well every girl loves diamonds and flowers. What an amazing combo. One of this years highlights has been the opportunity to create a dreamy bouquet for a shoot with De Beers Diamond rings. Who better for them to choose as a style icon than the amazing Charlotte of Rock My Wedding. See Charlotte’s mood board here.

The diamonds were exquisite and we created a bouquet with a quintessential English feel and fragrance with roses and lilac.

HOW TO MAKE A FLOWER CROWN – STEP BY STEP

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

Ever wondered how to make one of those pretty flower crowns you often see brides and bridesmaids wearing in our weddings? Well here you go, we have put together a step by step guide so you can learn how to make them. This is another of our DIY tutorials we have done in collaboration with Rock My Wedding, see more of our DIY floral guides here.

HOW TO MAKE A FLOWER CROWN

For this example floral crown we have used a mix of roses in nude and pink colours in different sizes as well as wax flower for texture. You can use any flowers for this, the larger the flower heads the less you will need, we suggest using flowers that will be used elsewhere in your wedding and in your bouquet.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

YOU WILL NEED

  • Quicksand Roses
  • Sweet Avalanche Roses
  • Bombastic spray Roses
  • Roll of florists’ tape
  • Wax Flower
  • Vendela Roses
  • Fine gauge silver florists’ 32 gauge wire and
  • Medium gauge 56 or 71 wire

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

1. Measure the head of the bride or person wearing the crown. The easiest way to do this is by using a piece of string. Add an additional 4cm to the length, these will be used to create hooks to hold it together.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

2. Using the medium guage wire cut this to match the length of the string, then cover it in florists tape.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

3. Select your flowers. For the roses cut the stems just below the flower head and push wire up through the centre of the stem. Add silver wire horizontally through the stem and twist it to secure with the main wire.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

4. Cover all the wires with tape, stretching the tape and pulling it as you wind around the wire to keep it as thin as possible. (no need to wire the wax flower)

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

6. Once you have done this for all the flowers you are going to use in your flower crown you can start adding them to the longer piece of tape covered wire you prepared in step 2. Working from one end, place the first flower and fasten to the circlet wire with florists tape, wrapping it around the wires to make sure it is secure, then add another flower and another. Try alternate the flowers on either side of the wire for a natural look and make sure large and small roses are interspersed with the wax flower for texture.

cream-jugs-centrepieces-passion-for-flowers-shustoke-farm-barns.jpg

We are delighted to feature one of our most romatic summer weddings. We love Shustoke Farm Barn weddings and were thrilled to meet up with Natalie and her mum earlier in the year to discuss flowers for Natalie and Tom’s late September wedding. When Natalie mentioned she had chosen the amazing Ross Harvey as her photographer we knew the wedding would be beautifully captured.

All photos by Ross Harvey

THE BOUQUETS – NUDE PINK ROSES & HYDRANGEAS

One of the delights after an early start creating bridal party flowers is delivering them on the day and sharing the excitment as the bride is preparing for her day. The sheer joy and excitment when we presented Natalie with her flowers and finally saw her wonderful dress is a great memory for us all.

The bridal bouquet was a mix of nude pink roses Quicksand, Sweet Avalanche and Bombastic with snippets of texture, the bridesmads carried bouquets with a mix of hydrangea, Quicksand roses and snippets of pittosporum and the bouquets  perfectly set off  their blush dresses.

BUTTONHOLES

The boys looked elegant in their navy suits and nude pink buttonholes of Quicksand rose with a snippet of pittosporum. We love the tradition of the groom selecting a flower from his brides bouquet.

CREAM JUGS FOR BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

On a hot summers day it is good to have jugs ready for the bridesmaids bouquets to be placed in after the photos. They make a lovely gift for the girls to keep after the wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS WEDDING – CREAM JUGS, CREAM CANDELABRA & GIANT LIGHT UP LOVE LETTERS

The rustic charm of Shustoke Farm Barns is best suited to seasonal flowers, tealights and simple decorations leaving the framework of wood, metal, exposed brickwork and natural light to do the rest. Cream jugs with a blousy arrangement of blooms sat on the tables with the addition of a cream candelabra on the top tabe.   For that wow factor just add giant Light Up LOVE letters and a stunning bride and groom.

We invited Nicola of Daffodil Waves Photography along to take some photos of our stand for those of you who couldn’t make it to the show.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – A WEDDING FLORISTS STAND

We chose to create a rustic glamour setting for our stand this year, we often work at rustic style wedding venues (barns and farms) and love adding a touch of glamour to the tables mixed in with the natural rustic look.

LONG TABLE WITH A SEA OF FLOWERS AND GOLD CANDELABRA

The long table scape was our main feature this year, we set it for 6 to give an idea of how it could be used at a wedding. More venues are offering long tables for receptions now, or these florals could go along a top table.

Down the centre of the table we created a sea of flowers in bronze, gold and crystal glass vases with three gold candelabra to give height (all available to hire from Passion for Flowers).

The mix of flowers we used on the table were Quicksand roses, Secret Garden roses, Vendela roses, Bombastic spray roses, Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, white anemones, scabious seed heads, wax flower, brunia, dusty miller and eucalyptus.

BRONZE TEA LIGHT HOLDERS & DETAILS

We used a number of decorations from our sister company The Wedding of my Dreams for extra styling, including bronze ribbed tea light holders and chunky bronze vases. At each place setting was an advice for the bride and groom coaster – we love this as an alternative wedding guest book.

WEDDING STATIONERY

The stationery was by Tom Gautier of Paper & Things, we loved the individual menus and name cards with the floral illustration, and the table plan cards too. The name cards were used in our bud vase name card holders, which are just like old fashioned salt cellars.

TALL GLASS VASES FOR CENTREPIECES

Along the back wall we displayed a tall centrepiece in a relaxed style, this could either be used as a centrepiece with a grouping of smaller bronze vases around the base or as a floral display at the wedding ceremony. The table plan is one of our newest and favourite table plans we hire out, we created a floral garland around the arch of the window shutters table plan with blush pink and nude florals in bronze vases running in front of it.

BRIDAL BOUQUETS

We had two bridal bouquets on display, both tied with glamorous gold ribbon to trail. The first was a blousy loose hand tied bouquet of Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, dusty miller and white astilbe. The other was a rose bouquet of Quicksand roses, Bombastic spray roses, wax flower and eucalyptus.

CHALKBOARD SIGNS

On the chair backs we used a couple of chalkboard chair signs from The Wedding of my Dreams, Mr & Mrs as well as Here Comes the Bride. On the other chairs we created floral chair garlands of eucalyptus, ivy, soft ruscus, scabious seed heads and wax flower for a relaxed rustic look.

FLOWER CROWNS

Each day at the show we wore flower crowns created with a similar mix of flowers we had used elsewhere in the displays.

We used crates along the back wall to showcase some of our other favourite ideas, including rustic tree slices with a grouping of bottles, succulent wedding favours, sprinkle me confetti bags and our welcome wedding sign. Of course we proudly displayed our Best Wedding Florist in the West Midlands award.

THE CHAMPAGNE BAR FLOWERS

Here at Passion for Flowers we strategically chose a stand next to the champagne bar, mainly so we could treat ourselves at the end of a busy day! We created table centres for the tables on the champagne bar using soft pastel pinks and creams. The flowers we used in theses centrepieces were Sweet Avalanche roses, Bombastic spray roses, astilbe, wax flower, astrantia and white hydrangeas.

WEDDING MAGAZINE STAND

We also loved creating the garlands for Wedding Magazine’s stand, and made the girls flower crowns to wear throughout the show. The garlands were in keeping with their bright pink logo so we used Kate David Austin roses, lisianthus, Wizard Of Oz dahlias, Harmony dahlias, Blue Curiosa roses, veronica, sedum, astrantia and poppy heads.

We love their comment…

The flowers on the stand were the best we have ever had, and we all LOVED the flower crowns you very kindly made.

VINTAGE WEDDING FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – SUPER 8 FILM

At Passion for Flowers we love it when our brides let us in on a secret. This film by Mark Brown was so special as it was a present from a bride to her groom. What a gorgeous surprise for Richard and a wonderful gift from his bride Victoria as a lasting reminder of their wonderful wedding day at Hampton Church and Hampton Manor.

Victoria and her bridesmaids carried gorgeous summer vintage style bouquets, we love using vintage flowers at Hampton Manor. We used dahlia Cafe au Lait, a mix of vintage roses in creams, soft and deeper pink and peach tones of Magic Avalanche, Pearl Avalanche, scented Kiera garden roses, astrantia, eucalyptus and olive foliage with rosemary for a relaxed look. Long trailing ribbons completed the look. After the church service Victoria changed to wearing a flower crown of mixed summer flowers including garden roses which totally suited her relaxed day with vintage elements.

What a beautiful bride wonderfully captured on film.
