LONGBOURNE BARN WEDDING CEREMONY – FOLIAGE FOLIAGE & MORE FOLIAGE

The ceremony venue was Longbourne Barn a gem in the Warwickshire countryside that was the perfect choice for this laid back ceremony. Foliage was key to the day and we decorated everywhere we could with a relaxed mix of foliage. The screen was incorporated into the day with beautiful images projected bringing to life this happy couple.  The giant frame was hand built for the ceremony and we loved decorating it with a mix of foliage and natural flowers to create this laid back festival styled wedding.

WEDDING CAR GARLAND – A MUST FOR SUMMER WEDDINGS

Gemma and I always jump at a chance to add flowers to a wedding car and the Fiat 500 was a joy to flower. The garland had to fit the festival look and feel of the wedding and be able to withstand the heat of the day and the trip from Oldberrow House over to the ceremony venue. I have to  say it was one of our favourite parts of this amazing wedding and still brings tears to my eyes.

Natural Flowers At The Ashes Wedding Venue – Florist Passion for Flowers

The Ashes Wedding Florist Passion for Flowers

Hannah and Rishi were married at The Ashes, the most beautiful countryside venue, a place where you feel relaxed as you arrive and revived when you leave. We were delighted to be asked to work with Hannah and Rishi on their wedding as we had the pleasure of creating flowers for Rishi’s brother’s wedding at Shustoke Barns previously.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

The bridal bouquet was a mix of hydrangea and roses in beautiful tones. The whole look was chosen to remind Hannah of the family garden.

Hannah and Rishi had collected a lovely selection of antique vases, copper coffee pots and smaller bowls we incorporated into the table decoration with the addition of some crystal glass. Delicate stems of ivy and soft scented flowers were added bringing colour to the tables. I loved the old photos that Hannah had displayed in photo frames for each table.

Hampton Manor Tall Centrepieces – Gold Floral Stands & Tall Rustic Branch Stands

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.

Fairy tale weddings are magical and the setting at Blackwell Grange on a summer’s day was the setting for Danielle and Lorance. The images captured of their day show their love for each other and the elegant style of their day.
Danielle wore a stunning Hayley Paige gown from the lovely Sophie at CocoandKate in Hatton. They have a wonderful range of designer wedding dresses and offer expert advice in choosing the perfect wedding dress.

Birch Arch Rustic Ceremony at Hampton Manor

Birch arch wedding ceremony rustic wedding at Hampton Manor Passion for Flowers (1)

Our birch arch makes a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony. The ceremony barn at Hampton Manor is the perfect setting. We created this autumnal setting at Hampton Manor using large tree stumps down the aisle with candle in clear glass cylinder vases making a lovely setting for the entrance of the bride.

The focal point is of course the birch arch which we draped with sheer white material and organic style florals to each corner, we used lush foliage, dark red hydrangeas, nude roses and larger statement blooms for a textured autumnal look.

BURGUNDY DEEP PURPLE FLOWERS FOR WEDDING FLOWERS MAGAZINE

DEEP PURPLE WEDDING FLOWERS

Are you thinking of choosing deep purple and burgundy tones for your wedding flowers? Recently we were asked by Wedding Flowers Magazine to take our designs down to London to be shot for their November issue. We used deep purple / maroon / burgundy flowers mixed with a touch of gold to add some glamour.

DEEP PURPLE BRIDAL BOUQUET

For the bridal bouquet we used an natural mix of smoke bush and clematis foliage, deep toned dahlia perfect for an autumn wedding with scabious, scented Kiera rose, sloe berries and touches of trailing amaranthus. The mix of ribbons created a soft romantic finish.

DEEP PURPLE FLOWERS IN CRYSTAL BOWLS ON A GOLD PLATE FOR WEDDING CENTREPIECE

For the centrepiece we created an asymmetrical design in an antique crystal bowl filled with autumnal foliage and blooms, the gold plate added a touch of glamour and height to the design. The combination of autumnal foliage smoke bush, clematis with a mix of sedum and deep toned blooms were the perfect fit with the lush Kiera roses.

For the escort cards we used a mix of mini bottles with guests name and brought the outside in by incorporating snippets of foliage and flowers to set the tone for the day.

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.

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.

Claire and Ben booked us more than a year before their wedding after they had seen us setting up at Cripps Barn. They were looking for a relaxed rustic wedding celebration with family and friends. Ben is a true romantic and I loved the pearls he had chosen for Claire. The boys were at Cripps the morning of the wedding adding some hand made touches while the girls finished getting ready. Don’t you just love the directional signs lovingly made by Claire’s Dad. All photography by Jen Marino Photography.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BOUQUETS

Claire and her bridesmaids had wonderful dresses and needed simple just picked flowers to complete their look. We worked with a white and green palette with highlights of purple and blue adding touches of lavender and veronica in the bridal just picked bouquet. To keep the bouquets rustic in style they were finished with hessian.

Rustic button holes with twine suited this rustic style wedding and its setting at Cripps Barn. The button holes were all a little different and finished with twine. Name tags are great to help with handing out the button holes on the wedding day.

At Cripps Barn you can choose to have your ceremony in the wonderful ceremony barn which is a simply stunning way to tie the knot. Jars of just picked flowers on the ceremony table and huge just picked hanging globes are all that is needed to complete the look. The beauty of the hanging globes can be enjoyed later in the day for the evening celebrations. The young flower girls pomanders also looked perfect hanging as pew ends from their chairs.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ HANGING FLOWER GLOBES

The hanging flower globes are a ‘must have’ at Cripps Barn as they are enjoyed by guests throughout the day and are the last thing seen at the end of the evening. Claire and Ben had the hanging flower globes high up on their list of priorities as they had seen ones we had created for previous weddings. For a rustic wedding we combined lots of fresh scented eucalyptus and dill, dreamy gypsophila and blousy hydrangeas.

One of the lovely comments from our happy couple after the wedding was that the globes smelled really amazing.
