WINTER WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR

Hampton Manor is a beautiful place to tie the knot at any time of year but certainly comes into its own in the winter months. We loved creating flowers for the adorable Katie and Matt for their December wedding.

BRIDAL BOUQUET – WINTER BLACK TIE WEDDING

The moment of truth when you present your bridal bouquet to the bride is a moment of pure joy to behold. Katie was beyond excited and so happy with her bouquet. The flowers chosen had great sentimental value and were some of Katie’s Grandma’s favourites. The girls look so elegant in their black bridesmaids gowns perfect for a winter black tie wedding.

A beautiful backdrop was created with the purest white drapes for an elegant arch with large urns with a mass of foliage and white blooms. The bride and groom chair backs including a pheasant feather added a touch of whimsy. Lanterns down the aisle added a magical light and a lush foliage and floral garland decorated the registry table.

HAMPTON MANOR – WEDDING FAIR AUTUMN 2016

stone-urn-centrepieces-white-hydrangeas-winter-wedding-flowershampton-manor-wedding-florist-passion-for-flowers-21

We love Hampton Manor weddings and were delighted to have free rein to decorate the sumptuous Elizabeth’s Court for the autumn wedding fair. We enjoyed meeting a number of wedding couples and showing them how they could decorate the venue to suit their wedding style and season.

Since then we have been busy meeting with couples at our studio at Home Farm in Berkswell where we have an ever expanding range of vases, vessels and large scale props to make your wedding day your own.

TOP TABLE GARLANDS

top-table-floral-garlands-with-candle-sticks-wow-factor-hampton-manor-wedding-florist-passion-for-flowers

At your wedding reception all eyes are on the top table so make a statement with your florals as these will be captured in your photos of the speeches on the day. We love decorating the Butchers Block table with an abundance of mixed foliage with flowers and added textures. For this look we added roses, brunia and air plants for great texture. Elegant silver candlesticks complete the look.

White, grey and green and a perfect choice for an elegant wedding whatever the season for a timeless look. For a spring take on this we would include some white tulips and ranunulus in the design. There is always a choice of flower to add to create a great look with the season and your wedding colours in mind.

Add interest to the place settings with a pocketful of delicate astrantia nestled in the napkin. Posy vases by the place settings also add a welcome personal touch.

ELEGANT TALL BRONZE VASE CENTREPIECES – PEACH  ROSES WHITE HYDRANGEAS

Metallics are still hot news and look oh so stunning at the Manor, this look is perfect for an overstated elegant look with a bit of glitz and glamour. See how the tall bronze vases goes so well with the stunning chandelier in the room. We always look to tie in your wedding decor with the room and your bespoke theme. Peach roses and cream hydrangea brought out the warmth to this look.

Team with gold and bronze lower vases running along the table and add gold rimmed glasses for an elegant look. The glass charger plates keep this fresh and contemporary.

Photo frames in opulent metallic finish add a finishing touch to the tablescape. If using the sprig table layout at Hampton Manor make sure you have interest running along the table, use candles and lanterns to add to the romance.

If you are planning a room layout with round tables you could consider using a mix of different centrepieces around the room. Perhaps a stunning tall bronze vase on a central table and lanterns surrounded by gorgeous blooms on others, with an abundant mix of gold and bronze vases on another. By keeping to the same blooms the look remains cohesive and easy on the eye but becomes a talking point amongst your guests.

STONE URN CENTREPIECS BRONZE CANDLESTICKS AND BOTTLES

Rustic woodland settings work so well at Hampton Manor and can be started with the ceremony in The Birches. The stone vases and urns create great centrepieces and bring a sense of naturalness to the tables. The stone in the courtyard was our inspiration for this look. For a winter wedding we have included touches of grey brunia and eucalyptus and added bronze candelsticks and bronze bottles with  bloooms along the table.

stone-urn-centrepieces-white-hydrangeas-winter-wedding-flowershampton-manor-wedding-florist-passion-for-flowers-21

For the place settings a slate place card holder looks just right with torn edge paper and a calligraphy name card. Its the little details that take your wedding from great to amazing.

ELEGANT TALL GLASS VASES – PEACH AND CREAM ROSES

We love elegant tall glass vases and wanted to show one of our latest designs at Hampton Manor. This elevated design could form a centrepiece to a long table design with a mix of smaller glass vases and glass candlesticks running along the table. They can also be used to add drama to the Parlour for exclusive use weddings or to create a stunning top table design.

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.

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.

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.

GREY WHITE AND GOLD WEDDING FLOWERS | GLAMOROUS NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING

candelabra-wedding-flowers-in-church

We are going to start re-publishing some of our most loved weddings that feature in our blog archives, our old blog doesn’t get a lot of views any more and we think it’s a big shame that our newer couples don’t get to see some of our favourite weddings from the past couple of years. If you are planning a glamorous wedding with touches of white, grey and gold wedding flowers you will love Amy and Huw’s New Years Eve wedding.

top table wedding flower garland full length white grey silver

I first met Amy at the Rock My Wedding Pop Up Shop last year when Lolly introduced us and knew we would be able to help her with her plans for a gorgeous New Years Eve Wedding. Amy and Huw were married in the seclusion of St Paul’s Convent, bringing back lovely memories for her family, and the couple were welcomed with open arms.

The ceremony in the chapel was followed by a sumptuous dinner and party at Edgbaston Golf Club where we helped Amy create a glamorous look for her New Years Eve wedding celebrations.

BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ WHITE, GOLD, IVORY AND GREEN

Flowers were very important to Amy and she wanted a bouquet to suit her elegant lace wedding gown. The bouquet was a mix of white, ivory and gold with touches of green from the eucalyptus. We included touches of gold with hydrangea, artichoke heads and bitter balls perfect with  creamy hydrangea, roses and lisianthus all finished with a luxe gold wrap to the stems.

BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS ~ WHITE AND GOLD WEDDING FLOWERS

Amy had chosen her bridesmaids dresses with a glamour wedding in mind, the girls had wonderful gold dresses and we teamed these with hand tied bouquets of creamy flowers with accents of gold.

gold-and-white-bridesmaids-bouquets-wedding-flowers

FLOWER CROWNS ~ GREY, WHITE AND GOLD

Later in the evening Amy planned a surprise when she changed her veil and head dress for a delicate flower crown. We always love delivering the bridal party flowers on the day when everyone is getting ready and were delighted that Amy was so happy with her flowers.

BUTTON HOLES ~ IVORY & GREY

Huw and the men had button holes of ivory roses with grey dusty miller.The stems were delicately covered with gold ribbon to tie in with the girls bouquets.

THE CEREMONY FLOWERS ~ PEW ENDS & HURRICANE LANTERNS

Flowers in the chapel were a very important part of Amy and Huw’s day and we enjoyed visiting St Paul’s to discuss details together. Hurricane lamps lined the route through the cloisters and down the aisle and provided the candlelight the couple wanted. Eucalyptus in the pew ends added a lovely winter aroma in the chapel.wedding-church-flowers-white-and-green-pew-endswedding-church-flowers-white-hydrangea-pew-ends

 THE CEREMONY FLOWERS ~ LARGE CANDELABRA

For the ceremony we added to the candlelight with large silver candelabra with creamy white flowers and touches of gold and green, the chapel looked resplendent for such a joyous occasion.

candelabra-wedding-flowers-in-church

RECEPTION FLOWERS ~ LONG TOP TABLE GARLAND GREY, WHITE AND GOLD

With the wedding on New Year’s Eve Amy and Huw wanted to create a glamorous party feel to their wedding celebrations.The gold chairs set the tone and a highlight was the full length garland of flowers to the top table. Mounds of cream hydrangea, roses and touches of gold hydrangea, artichoke heads and grey foliage worked perfectly and as soon as the candles were light the room was ready for Amy and Huw to welcome their family and friends.

RECEPTION FLOWERS ~ GUEST TABLES

Amy and her mum had fun collecting vintage rose bowls, silver candelabra and silver rose bowls for the the guest tables. We loved filling them with gold, cream and grey flowers to continue the glamour look to their New Year’s Eve wedding celebration. A touch of whimsy was added by Amy and Huw, the napkins were in the shape of their pet rabbit Flapjack, who had a special visit from Amy and Huw before they arrived at their reception.

Louise and Craig were planning an elegant winter wedding with rustic touches and I was delighted when they got in touch. We spent time at our consultation identifying winter wedding flowers for their day, flowers we suggested included avalanche roses, thistles, ranunculus, hydrangea, eucalyptus with berries, anemones and brunia. All perfect winter wedding flowers for their Warwick House wedding.

 WINTER WEDDING FLOWERS – CREAM & GREY BOUQUETS

We always love delivering the bouquets and seeing our brides on their wedding day. The cream and grey bouquets were presented in hat boxes.

ELEGANT CEREMONY AT WARWICK HOUSE – CREAM & SILVER

WINTER WEDDING FLOWERS – ELEGANT TOP TABLE

To create an elegant top table we added a mix of mercury silver vases and bottles with winter wedding flowers and of course the large central display in front of the bride and groom. With a top table it is always lovely to add plenty of interest as this will be a key table in all of your photographs. The winter scented candles and tea lights created a wonderful scent in the room. A simple stem of eucalyptus with grey ribbon completed the look with the charger plates and elegant glassware.

As winter is on it’s way we thought we’d share with you one of our all time favourite winter wonderland weddings. This winter wonderland wedding had a black, white and silver colour palette with a hint of sparkle. We did this wedding back in the winter of 2012 and still love this classic timeless look.

FLOWERS USED AT THIS WINTER WONDERLAND WEDDING

We used white flowers with highlights of black, including frilly honeymoon tulips, white gypsophila, black and white anemones and white hydrangeas. To bring in the silver and sparkle elements to the décor we used mercury silver vases, white and silver branches / twigs as well as fir cones to bring a natural winter look to the tables.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC GLAMOUR

step by step guide how to make wedding centrepieces - rustic glamour (5)

Another of our DIY tutorials was featured on Rock My Wedding this week. If you are thinking of making your own wedding centrepieces or maybe your Christmas dining table centrepieces then have a look at these easy to follow instructions. This step by step guide shows how to make a floral centrepiece using a ring of oasis, we have added a mercury silver hurricane vase to the centre for a rustic glamour look with ribbed silver tea light holders to finish. You can change the flowers and central lantern to create a floral centrepiece of a different style using the same guidelines.

For example you could use a clear glass hurricane vase or ribbed glass lantern in the centre, or for a more rustic look perhaps a bark lantern.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC GLAMOUR

step by step guide how to make wedding centrepiece - rustic glamour  (2)

To keep this example simple and stylish we have used four ingredients, you can use more if you wish. We used eucalyptus (a lovely grey / green tone for winter), brunia (grey balls to add textures and soft tones), thistles (these add more texture and bring in a subtle blue tone) and finally fluffy white hydrangeas.

The above example is perfect for a rustic winter or rustic glamour wedding. Alternatively you could use different flowers for different seasons.

Spring example: for a pink and white scented spring wedding we suggest white ranunculus, soft pink freesias (adding a lovely scent), blush pink Sweet Avalanches Roses and greenery of your choice, seeded eucalyptus would look stunning. You could lighten with sprigs of gypsophila.

Summer example: for a peach and green toned summer wedding we suggest peach Juliet David Austin roses, cream David Austin roses, Wizard Of Oz Dahlias, tanacetum daisies and vibrant green amni and alchemilla mollis.

Autumn example: for a nude, grey and bronze toned autumn wedding we would suggest dusty miller, large cafe au lait dahlias, Quicksand roses, brunia, olive foliage and scabious seed pods.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

flower crowns weddings

Are you wondering how you will style your hair on your wedding day? Have you thought of wearing a flower crown? Many of our brides love wearing a circlet of fresh flowers in their hair on their wedding day, whether they wear it for the whole day or just after the ceremony for a more relaxed look. Today we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite flower crowns we have made for our brides as well as some inspiration from Pinterest.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

Caroline looked stunning in her large mixed coloured flower crown, her wedding colours tied into her watercolour theme so we used a mix of roses in pinky tones and blue hydrangeas for a full look.

Amy was married on New Years Eve, she wore a  flower crown made from the flowers of the day. For her white, gold and grey colour palette we used white roses in varying sizes, eucalyptus (some of it sprayed gold), hydrangeas and brunia. Amy wore her flower crown during the evening when the wedding turned into a New Years Eve party.

Victoria wore her flower crown after her wedding ceremony for a walk in the woods at Hampton Manor, we think she looked gorgeous in her peach and cream rose flower crown.

Leanne loved her flower crown, it suited her natural rustic wedding perfectly. We made a delicate flower circlet using very soft muted tones including wax flower for texture, Quicksand roses, bombastic roses and a touch of pittosporum.

Young bridesmaids and flower girls look especially cute when they wear flower crowns and hair flowers. Sometimes they prefer to wear something in their hair than hold a bouquet all through the day. This pretty little girl wore a gypsophila flower crown.

For this Indian wedding the young bridesmaids wore bright orange, yellow and red flower crowns to tie in with their orange bridesmaids dresses. Don’t they look adorable?
