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.

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.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – FLORISTS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

As you may know here at Passion for Flowers we exhibited at The National Wedding Show in Birmingham last weekend, we absolutely loved the whole weekend meeting newly engaged couples and industry friends. We plan our stand months in advance it was amazing to see our visions come to life, we believe all the hard work and planning paid off as we were thrilled to be awarded The Outstanding Exhibitor Award.

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

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014- Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

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.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

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.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

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.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – VINTAGE GLAMOUR

wroxall abbey wedding flowers vintage glamour candelabra with pearls centrepiece

Since our early days at Passion for Flowers we have enjoyed creating Wroxall Abbey wedding flowers in the Mansion House, marquee and Wren’s Cathedral. Sam and Mike asked us to help them create a perfect look for their vintage glamour wedding at Wroxall Abbey.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Sam was the most beautiful relaxed bride and was very happy to leave everything in our hands. She had a lovely vision for the day and was open to all the ideas and extra touches we presented and asked for our advice on lots of the aspects of her wedding. At one point I fondly recall her saying ‘but you are the wedding’. As a couple they were a joy to work with and we loved our times liaising and chatting over details.

The dusky pink rose bouquets were soft and spring like finished with lace to perfectly suit the style of the soft mint green bridesmaids’ dresses. Touches of variegated pittosporum picked up the pastel tone of the fabric. Sam’s rose bouquet finished her look for the day with lace trimmed cathedral veil and wonderful wedding dress.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – CHURCH FLOWERS

Wroxall Abbey has a wonderful church just a short walk from the Mansion House and church flowers always include decoration of the wooden screen. Roses were threaded through the soft foliage garland to create a romantic backdrop for the service.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – VINTAGE GLAMOUR CENTREPIECES

Sam and Mike wanted us to create a vintage glamour look to their centrepieces and we agreed on a mix of centrepieces, stunning candelabra festooned with flowers and soft foliage finished with trailing pearls, raised silver cake stands with pretty blooms, delicate three tier crystal cake stands trimmed with lace and pearls and the soft glow of votives and candles.

WINDOW SHUTTER TABLE PLAN

Mike loves comics and this fun couple chose to name their tables after characters including Spider Man and Batman for the top table. We displayed the stationery on our window shutter table plan making it easy for guests to find their seats. I loved seeing the newly married Dr and Dr McFarlane on their wedding day.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – HANGING BOTTLES

Outside the church the ancient yew tree is the perfect place to let some light and interest into the churchyard. Soft vintage rose heads hanging in apothecary bottles look great and make the churchyard seem brighter and more welcoming.

Sam’s mum was keen on us adding in some bunting which we found in lovely pastel shades to decorate the entrance to the marquee. It even had garlands of pearls on the design so just worked so well for this gorgeous wedding.

A VINTAGE SUITCASE FILLED WITH CARDS

A vintage suitcase was added to the Garden Room at Wroxall Abbey for guests to add their cards and add messages to their photo guest book.

WEDDING CAKE FLOWERS

The cake was a highlight to the day. We liaised with the team at Fiona Cairns, makers of the royal wedding cake that Kate and William enjoyed, to ensure the flowers we created were fit for a right royal cake.

CREAM & NUDE ROSES BRIDAL BOUQUET

As soon as we heard about Justine’s Ian Stuart dress we knew we had to create a perfect bouquet to set it off; we agreed on a cream and nude bouquet with an abundance of quicksand roses, ranunculus, snippets of astrantia. Justine was overjoyed with the florals for the day and her cream and nude roses bridal bouquet. We feel it worked wonderfully with her statement dress totally in keeping with the elegant, romantic look.

WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CEREMONY URNS WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF GREEN & NUDE FLORALS

Walton Hall Wedding Flowers and decorations are always elegant and in keeping with this gorgeous venue. We met Justine and Andy at the National Wedding Show and they fell in love with our rustic inspired urns and table decorations and we worked closely with them to design the florals for the ceremony urns with an abundance of green and nude florals. Eucalyptus, hydrangea, lisianthus, viburnum opulus or guelder rose with quicksand roses toned beautifully with the elegant mercury silver candlesticks and elegance of Walton Hall.

WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ ELEGANT TABLE CENTREPIECES

At Walton Hall it is key to use elegant table centrepieces, here with some rustic textures and soft tones of flowers, we combined mercury silver hurricane vases for the elegance with a soft mix of hydrangea, ranunculus, anemones, guelder roses as well as quicksand roses. The urns for the ceremony were later re-purposed in the alcoves to be enjoyed during the wedding breakfast. Justine loves candles and we had filled the fireplace, tables and windowsills with a mix of mercury candlesticks and tea lights, another elegant touch.

THANK YOU FLOWERS IN JUGS

The mum’s always appreciate a thank you gift and florals are especially welcome. Justine and Andy chose thank you flowers in jugs, keeping with their elegant, rustic wedding look, the jugs can be used again and again and kept as a reminder of a lovely wedding day.
