We love creating Cripps Barn wedding flowers especially hanging globes. It is always a pleasure to travel down to the Cotswolds and create wedding flowers for our couples tying the knot at Cripps Barn. 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.
CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ RUSTIC BUTTON HOLES WITH TWINE
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.
CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CEREMONY BARN FLOWERS
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 ~ TOP TABLE FLOWERS
The long top table at Cripps Barn looks warm and inviting with an assortment of jars and vases with just picked flowers from the day. Just Married hessian bunting was added to the front of the top table as well as a hessian runner for another rustic touch.
CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ PLACE SETTINGS
The guests place settings were finished with lavender for the girls and rosemary for the boys. It is always welcoming to add a floral place setting for your guests.
CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ WEDDING CAKE DECORATION
The lovely cake was finished with a mini Mr and Mrs bunting and we added rustic flowers hand tied with twine to finish the look. Wedding cake decoration should always tie through into your day so this was just perfect for a rustic wedding at Cripps Barn.
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.
It was lovely to see the rustic shoot we worked on last January at The Moat House, Dorsington featured on Boho Weddings. We love seeing our work published on blogs and this shoot is just perfect for Boho Weddings. We worked with along side a talented team for the shoot and we created rustic tablescapes on long tables. We used hessian runners and an assortment of rustic vases and vessels filled with seasonal flowers. We created bridal bouquets and button holes, a table plan on apex ladders and more. See the full shoot over on Boho Weddings or see more detail about the flowers on our blog post of this shoot.
At Passion for Flowers we love Warwickshire weddings and we were more than delighted when Ben Hanlin (you may know him from Tricked) and Briony Davies asked us to help them style and create the flowers for their circus themed wedding. We worked closely with Ben and Bri on pinterest and circus themed inspiration and what came together on the day was just amazing and beautifully captured by Jo Hastings Photography.
WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – BRIDAL BOUQUET
We created a beautiful scented bridal bouquet for Briony with blousy peonies, roses and highlights of scabious seed heads and Billy Balls perfect for the white and yellow wedding flowers to suit her day.
WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The bridesmaids looked stunning in their nude blush dresses and carried white and yellow wedding flowers with peonies, roses and Billy Balls, finished with ivory ribbon. The wedding was in Tanworth in Arden and the bridal party walked across The Green to the country church in glorious sunshine.
YELLOW BUTTON HOLES
How cool does Ben look with his yellow button hole with Billy Balls, scabious seed heads and touches of eucalyptus. Love the subtle yellow tie.
CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS – RUSTIC CRATES & HEART PEW ENDS
Country churches always look best with country and rustic touches. Rustic crates overflowing with blousy hydrangea, achillea, Billy Balls and eucalyptus welcomed guests to the church and simple hand tied bunches of flowers were added to the heart pew ends. That’s all a country church needs along with a basket brimming with petals to scatter. After the service everyone gathered for drinks on The Green before waving Ben and Briony off in their gorgeous car.
CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING MARQUEE
When we first met and the circus themed wedding was muted I just knew it would be fun. The colours of yellow and white continued from the signs to the ribbons flying in the breeze.
Briony had collected some fun circus themed containers and animals. We raided our props store to find other items to add to the tables. The aim was to have every table a little bit different with a range of vases and vessels. I love how the candelabra, gin bottles, vintage tins and books came together to create a relaxed fun filled day with the yellow and white flowers finishing the look.
CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING IDEAS
If you are planning a circus themed wedding then how about this amazing Joined at The Hip idea brilliant for photos and fun. Outside the marquee guests had the chance to play on the Coconut Shy, sit in the giant Deckchair and generally enjoy this fun filled day. Did I say it was the hottest day of the year and the sun shone all day on the new Mr and Mrs Hanlin.
We just love Barnsley House wedding flowers and we delighted to be asked to be the wedding florist for a gorgeous wedding on 1 May. I had the good fortune of meeting Annalise and Pez earlier this spring to finalise arrangements for their intimate wedding celebrations at Barnsley House.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BUTTON HOLES
For the day Annalise chose creamy whites and soft blush tones for her wedding flowers. Pez’s button hole had a touch of spray rose and eucalyptus to tie in with the bridal bouquet.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ FLOWER GIRLS POMANDERS
When I first saw photos of the gorgeous dresses the young girls would be wearing I just knew that the dreamy flower girl pomanders would look stunning. Their soft blush pink dresses had a blousy rose and they all enjoyed their day so much. I’ll let you into a little secret here, when collecting the urns the next day the girls had chosen to wear their dresses for their breakfast and still looked just as cute!
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BRIDAL BOUQUET
Annalise had discussed her stunning dress with me and chose a blousy rose and scented peony bouquet with touches of eucalyptus. The look was timeless and so so elegant.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ INDOOR CEREMONY
At Barnsley House we created an elegant timeless setting for the indoor ceremony, the large urns brought the feeling of a garden setting filled with hydrangea, peonies and roses. The aisle was lined with elegant silver lanterns filled with fresh rose petals.The gardens beckoned for a few photos after the ceremony just before the heavens opened again but nothing could dampen the spirits of this happy couple.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CENTREPIECES
Candles and mercury silver created the elegant centrepieces for this Barnsley House wedding. The huge mirror and fireplace overflowing with candles and candlesticks set a romantic look and feel to the room. The centrepieces continued this elegant look with a mix of candlesticks, silver footed bowls and mercury silver vases and vessels filled with scented roses and peonies. I love the freshness of the rosemary tucked into each place setting.
