WEDDING FLOWERS WORKSHOP – RUSTIC CENTREPIECES

Wedding Flowers Workshops by Passion for Flowers Warwickshire Midlands

Last week we ran our first wedding flowers workshops here at Passion for Flowers in our new studio at Home Farm in Warwickshire.

WHAT THE DAY INVOLVED

Karen demonstrated how to make a number of rustic country style centrepieces, including milk churns, jugs, mini crates and a grouping on a tree slice. She spoke about which flowers work well together and the techniques needed to make the different types of centrepieces.

In the afternoon all attendees made a place setting and crate centrepiece to take away with them.They also worked as a team to create a top table design, table plan and asked many questions about their own weddings and how they would go about creating various florals.

CRYSTAL GLASS AND SILVER CENTREPIECES – SUDELEY CASTLE WEDDING

sudeley-castle-wedding-flowers-by-passion-for-flowers-1

Andrea and Mitch were living out in New York when they contacted us about creating the flowers for their summer wedding at Sudeley Castle. We had initial skype exchanges and met when the bride traveled over to the UK. We loved working with Andrea to create natural just picked flowers for her wedding in an English Castle. As you can imagine this historic venue was much admired by the visitors from The States.

ORGANIC FREEFORM DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Whilst the bridesmaids carried bouquets with a mix of dusky pink tones the bridal  bouquet had a more organic freeform design with plenty of trailing jasmine, queen anne’s lace, creamy peonies, wax flower, delicate astilbe and roses.

DUSKY PINK ROSE, ASTILBE, WAX FLOWER & JASMINE – HEAVENLY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The brides dress was  Rivini and suited the organic style of flowers we had selected together. The bridesmaids carried heavenly bouquets of dusky pink rose, astilbe, deep toned astrantia,wax flower and scented jasmine. Fabric from the girls dresses loosely wrapped around the stems of all the bouquets brought the look together.

CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS

The chapel at historic Sudely Castle is so romantic decorated with candles to the altar.

GYPSOPHILA GARLANDS & PEW ENDS FOR CHURCH

Andrea requested dreamy garlands of white flowers and simple bunches of gypsophila for the pew ends. The chapel with its history and wonderful workmanship does not suit over embellishing and this style of decor created just the candlelit style the couple hoped for.

FLOWER WALL BACKDROP, PEONIES & GOLD GLITTER – CURRADINE BARNS WEDDING

creating a flower wall backdrop for wedding passion for flowers @kmorganflowers

This gorgeous wedding has so many of our favourite things flower wall backdrop, peonies and lots of gold glitter so we were thrilled to take our team down to Curradine Barns for this amazing wedding for the lovely Louise and Rob.

CREATING THE FLOWER WALL BACKDROP AT CURRADINE BARNS

Louise had one particular request she wanted flowers to cover the wall behind the top table to create a backdrop for her wedding celebrations. So the team carefully created her dream by hanging bombastic and miss bombastic spray roses with soft lisianthus to soften her backdrop. Louise and the girls were getting ready at the Barn and so popped in en masse to check how things were going.

PEONY BOUQUETS FOR THE BRIDE AND BRIDESMAIDS

Glamour was the key to the day and nothing hits the spot more than masses of peonies for beautiful bouquets with luxe dresses and lots of gold and glitter.

CHURCH WEDDING CEREMONY

The wedding took place at Great Witley Church in Worcestershire and was worth the steep climb up the hill to reveal the most beautiful Baroque Church, noted to be the finest example in England. An abundance of gold created the most magical setting for tying the knot.

HANGING FLOWER HOOPS, GLASS FOOTED BOWL CENTREPIECES

Lush florals in glass footed bowls were laid out on the tables with hanging flower hoops suspended from the beams over many of the tables to create the natural flower filled room for our happy couple. I just love seeing the delight on Louise’s face as she enters her dream room.

hanging-hoops-at-shustoke-farm-barns-passion-for-flowers-wedding-florist

Reeya Chalotra and Vishal Kapoor’s wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns in July was an elegant, stripped back look with natural flowers. We combined a mix of blooms chosen with the couple including  hydrangea, wax flower, fountain grass, grey brunia, lisianthus, eucalyptus and highlights of bombastic soft blush spray roses. Just perfect for the setting at Shustoke Farm Barns in Warwickshire.

ORGANIC STYLE CEREMONY FLOWERS

The ceremony had a natural organic style with hand tied bunches of wax flower, eucalyptus and spray roses to the chairs.

CEREMONY TABLE

To decorate the large wooden ceremony table a loose garland was created with plenty or organic foliage and blooms from the day. Garlands are a great look in a barn style venue with the addition of clylinder vases and candles for some magical candlelight.

HANGING HOOPS OF FLOWERS

The large open barns also benefit from some hanging flowers and so we designed hanging hoops made of wicker and wire, covered with relaxed foliage and flowers. It is important to use large scale blooms like hydrangea in these size of designs to create a dramatic look. Smaller blooms would be lost in a hoop of this size.

THE BIRCHES – WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS & DECORATIONS

The Birches suits rustic elegant styling with its large wooden doors, logs and wooden floor. We added candles with moss down the aisle and a mix of vases and vessels. We have an ever expanding selection which our couples can choose from when they meet at our new workshop in Berkswell. That way their wedding is personal to them.

Hampton Manor outdoor seating area styled with flowers and sparklers by Hampton Manor

As we regularly work at Hampton Manor we love it when new changes are made to venues. Hampton Manor have recently enhanced the outdoor area next to Elizabeth’s Court. There is a new seating area for guests to relax which would be lovely on a summers evening.

Have a look at the new seating area we recently styled with copper vases, pretty blooms lanterns, candles and sparklers. Doesn’t it look magical.

ELEVATED FLORALS ABOVE LONG TABLES – PERFECT ALTERNATIVE TO HANGING FLOWERS

Elevated florals above long tables for weddings by Passion for Flowers shown here at Hampton Manor

What do you think of our elevated florals shown here in the Parlour at Hampton Manor? This elevated design can be used along long tables to create the illusion of hanging flowers without having to fix anything to the ceiling at a venue – much quicker and easier to install on site than a hanging display. The flowers sit on a shelf supported by clear glass tall vases and we think they look just fab…

If you have longer tables the elevated display could continue onto another vase and another to match the length of your table.
If you are getting married at Hampton Manor we love a little extra floral decoration in the Parlour, it will be sure to wow your wedding guests.

SPRING WEDDING CEREMONY IDEAS AT HAMPTON MANOR – SPRING FLOWERS

elegant spring wedding ceremony flowers for ceremony table by @kmorganflowers Passion for Flowers at Hampton Manor

Spring is a wonderful time of year for weddings and can often be overlooked. For me it symbolises new beginnings and offers the most amazing time of year to tie the knot. An abundance of tulips, narcissi, ranunculus and blossom herald a most magical time of year for a spring wedding ceremony.

Don’t forget to weave some floral magic outside, create a welcome with plants, trees or hang bottles from trees as a photo booth. A flower cart with natural blooms creates a wonderful scented welcome for a Barn wedding ceremony.

WEDDING ESCORT CARDS – SPRING FLOWERS IN BOTTLES

Our couples love using escort cards as an alternatiave to a formal table plan, guests find the bottle with their name attached with details of the table they are assigned to. These make amazing favours or additional table decor and add to the spring look in the reception room.

Somethings happen for a reason and I was lucky enough to meet Jin and Atul at a Wedding Fair when they came to meet their String Quartet and they fell in love with our flower designs. We worked with Jin and Atul from a distance in the early planning stages as they were planning their wedding from their base in Scotland. We later visited their elegant wedding venue Heath House together to finalise details.

BRIDAL BOUQUET – BLUSH PINK ROSES WITH DUSTY BLUE THISTLES, HYDRANGEAS & FOLIAGE

This image by the talented Jo Hastings beautifully captured the elegance of the second part of Atul and Jin’s wedding day. Yes they had two wedding ceremonies. I just love how the bridal bouquet with its blush pink roses and dusty blue thistles for Atul’s Scottish links complement the beautiful oil painting. Heath House if full of the most amazing antiques and beautiful works of art.
