Asymmetric Deconstructed Arches – Learning with Sabine Darrall

Wedding styles are always evolving and we have been creating deconstructed arches for a number of our weddings over the last year or so. To learn a few more tricks of the trade especially creating with no floral foam I enjoyed a couple of days with Sabine Darrall earlier this year. These images show the beauty we can create. Personally, I love the natural green and white of the first image perfect for a foliage-filled wedding.

I just love this romantic look with the combination of the softest blush pink roses, scented lilac , amelanchier and blousy hydrangeas perfect for a spring wedding.

Dove Grey And White Wedding Colours – Bridesmaids Style

Dove Light Grey Bridesmaids Dresses with White rose ranunculus bouquets

We have just received the photos back from this stunning wedding we did at Hampton Manor. It was so gorgeous we have split it across 4 blog posts. For those of you looking for colour scheme inspiration, you can’t go wrong with a classic grey and white colour palette. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous dove grey long dresses paired with luxury white roses and ranunculus. We think this look is just dreamy.

HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING CENTREPIECES – TOP TABLE

Low Centrepieces – Footed Bowls Along Long Tables

Elegant footed bowl wedding centrepieces by Passion for Flowers Hampton Manor wedding florist

Not every centrepice has to be tall, in fact more and more of our couples are opting for low centrepieces. Low doesn’t mean any less WOW, footed bowls can look stunning on tables and I often design them with flowers cascading over the brim for a really full look.

At Hampton Manor I recently showed some spring designs in footed bowls. I displayed the same designs on both the bare wooden tables and clothed tables, deciding whether or not you have linen on your tables can really transform the look of the room so this is a great way to see how the same centrepiece can look different simply based on the linen and chairs.

Low Footed Bowls – A Classic Look

For the more traditional, classic look I placed 3 low centrepieces down the length of the table. Bronze candlesticks, vases and tealight holders filled in the spaces between the footed bowls for an elegant look. Hampton Manor had clothed the tables and used their Chiavari chairs for a more classic look.

Low Footed Bowls – A Rustic / Industrial Look

Here I have used the same design footed bowls, candlesticks and bronze vases but this time they are displayed on Hampton Manor’s new wooden tables and leather chairs. You can see how the bare tables really transform the look for a more rustic/industrial vibe. Both options are available at Hampton Manor.

Co-ordinating Top Table Design

To co-ordinate the room the top table had one low footed bowl in the centre with loose foliage laid along the length of the table as well as bronze candlesticks and tealights.

Full Length Table Garlands – Long Table Centrepieces

Long tables wedding flower garlands rustic barn wedding ideas

If you have chosen long guest tables you just can’t beat the classic look of a garland flowing the entire length of the table. I created these garlands for Hampton Manor’s recent wedding fair on their new wooden tables, which I just love.

For this design I opted for no floral foam, using a mix of foliage, roses, ranunculus and spring blooms down the length of the table. Candlesticks were entwined into the design and to finish off the wooden tables I added a natural cotton table runner and brass name place settings. If you love this idea but have chosen round tables we could still incorporate this into your table design.

Epic Wedding Backdrop Arch set behind Top Table – Wild Foliage

Hampton Manor new wooden tables and brown leather chairs

My new favourite backdrop! I have recently invested in a new frame which lets me create these epic backdrops for wedding venues. It’s first outing was at Hampton Manor wedding fair where I used it as a backdrop to the top table, I used mainly foliage for this design with touches of roses and blossom. This design was completely foam free and therefore much kinder to thee environment.

This idea could also be used as a ceremony backdrop or could be set at the entrance to your wedding venue or behind you wedding cake. The frame is pretty flexible too so can be made to the size you require, it’s maximum height is 10′ and starts at 6′ and the maximum width is 12′.

Stunning Long Table Garlands with Hanging Ring – Learning with Sabine Darrall

Long top table or guest table garland of flowers Passion for Flowers Karen Morgan

Garlands extending along a guest or top table are a firm favourite at weddings and provide a relaxed environment for any wedding celebration. Picking up tips on making our designs foam free and more eco-friendly has been top of my list this year and so I was delighted to join other talented florists to spend a couple of days creating and learning with Sabine Darrall.

At many of our barn venues or in marquees we have the opportunity to create stunning hanging decorations for our wedding couples. Again we now aim to make these foam free and more eco-friendly. The freshest of gathered foliages is always a good place to start and using flowers that will last through the wedding day. We usually hang these arrangements on the day of the wedding.

Free Form Urn Designs – Pink Peach & Green

Karen Morgan Passion for Flowers urn floral designs

Most of our wedding work includes a statement urn or two, either for the church or ceremony, close to a top table or as a feature by a staircase. This style of arrangement is often the first look at your wedding and is a beautiful piece to be photographed by or enjoyed by guests.  I loved creating this free form urn design using no floral foam and keeping our weddings more eco-friendly.  This natural mix was expertly captured for me by the talented Sabine Darrall whose courses I would highly recommend.

Compton Verney Wedding Fair – Pampas Grass Aisle Decoration, Moongate Backdrop & Tall White Centrepiece

Pampas grass deconstructed arch ceremony flowers Passion for Flowers

A wedding fair is an opportunity to meet newly engaged couples, existing clients and to show our skills at decorating a venue. We loved the opportunity to decorate the Palladian style chapel at Compton Verney as well as decorating in the Adam Hall and Art Gallery.

The Chapel – Pampas Grass Aisle Decoration, Deconstructed Arch

The Chapel was restored lovingly and is now a most beautiful space for a ceremony. We designed a deconstructed arch to frame the ceremony with a naturally inspired mix of foliage, pampas grass, quicksand roses and delicate nigella. The aisle decoration flowed along the aisle with a relaxed walkway of foliage, amaranthus, quicksand roses and pampas grass.

Tall White & Green Centrepiece, White Floral Stand

The elegant Adam Hall  with its tall ceiling benefits from tall centrepieces. For a classic, elegant look we designed the arrangements with masses of green foliage and wedding favourites scented garden roses, spray roses, ammi and lisianthus. For a spring look we added alliums and blossom. The white floral stand is the perfect height to allow guests to see each other across the table and is also available in gold, and copper to work with your wedding colours. Small white vases with single stems add interest at table height.

Moongate Backdrop & Bud Vase Window Display

The moongate was decorated with a delicate eucalyptus foliage for a light display keeping the look fresh and inviting. Buds vases placed along the table with roses, amaranthus and dried delphiniums continued the look. The moongate back drop is perfect for a ceremony or behind a top table, sweetheart table or to frame the cake table.

Urns from Church later moved to Hampton Manor

The Greek church was a stunning venue for the marriage ceremony with its blue interior and wonderful ceiling. As the church has so much decoration large urns were added to frame the ceremony. These were later moved to Hampton Manor to be part of the top table decoration.

Rustic Woodland Top Table Styling – Birtsmorton Court

rustic top table wedding birtsmorton court

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.

Summer Organic Cascading Bouquet – Inspired by Sabine Darrall

Passion for Flowers Organic Trailing Bouquets

‘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.
