Rebecca and Ryan were planning a Hollywood glamour inspired wedding and enlisted our help to create their stylish look, beautifully captured by Jo Hastings. Rebecca had candlelight high on her list of priorities and loved crystals and white flowers with silver vases.
WHITE BRIDAL BOUQUET – HYDRANGEAS AND ROSES
The bridal gown was so beautiful and suited a white bridal bouquet with hydrangeas and roses. We wanted to ensure the bouquet we designed for her complemented her gown with its intricate embellisments rather than outshone it.
WHITE BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – HYDRANGEAS AND ROSES
The girls wore Venetian style dresses in gold and so we created a smaller version of the bridal bouquet for them to carry with hydrangeas and roses. The stems were wrapped in organza ribbon with just a hint of shimmer.
WHITE BUTTONHOLES – HYDRANGEAS
Ryan looked immaculate in this dicky bow, tailored suit and white hydrange button hole waiting for his bride. What a cool dude.
WHITE AND SILVER WEDDING CENTREPIECES – HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR
To continue the Hollywood glamour tone set for the day we worked with white and silver to create the wedding centrepieces, vases lined the top table with silver voties and cascading crystals.
The guest tables had elegant candelabra draped with crystals and vases at table level or around the candelabra.
I just love the photos taken in the grounds of Nuthurst, the shot under the cypress tree is such a gorgeous image of this very glamorous couple x
Moxhull Hall in early spring was the venue for Linda and Michael’s wedding. Linda contacted us during the planning of her wedding to help create a look for the day that was in keeping with the Victorian house, gorgeous gardens and time of year. We agreed on a mix of spring flowers incuding tulips, ranunculus, lisianthus with snippets of broom, gyposphila and highlights of roses.
Lovely comment from the couple
Thank you so much for all your help and your vision in the planning of our wedding, I LOVED the flowers and everybody commented on the amazing table centres you provided. We can’t thank you enough.
BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUETS – BRIDAL BOUQUET
We created a soft romatic bridal bouquet for our spring bride with a mix of blush pink roses, palest lisianthus and tiny snippets of gypsophila. The soft ivory ribbons kept the look delicate and soft.
The marquee at Moxhull Hall is a light filled space and suits soft dreamy flowers and centrepieces. At Passion for Flowers we have a large collection of crystal vessels and vases which bring a vintage glamour look to the marquee setting. The tables had a mix of crystal vases and tiny jugs filled with delicate blooms. To add some height we used antique cake stands and a collection of old books.
Emma and Nathan chose Hogarths Hotel to tie the knot. They planned a gorgeous day with a colour scheme of soft muted pinks, cream and navy for the girls dresses and we created a romantic look with a mix of soft flowers in muted pinks and creams.
CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES HOGARTHS HOTEL
The tables looked amazing with large silver candelabra draped with pearls and a lavish arrangement of blousy roses including cream and dusky pink roses, scented freesias, astrantia, astilbe (feathery) in soft pink, gypsophila as a delicate filler and small touches of pittosporum.
Since our early days at Passion for Flowers we have enjoyed creating Wroxall Abbey wedding flowers in the Mansion House, marquee and Wren’s Cathedral. Sam and Mike asked us to help them create a perfect look for their vintage glamour wedding at Wroxall Abbey.
WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS
Sam was the most beautiful relaxed bride and was very happy to leave everything in our hands. She had a lovely vision for the day and was open to all the ideas and extra touches we presented and asked for our advice on lots of the aspects of her wedding. At one point I fondly recall her saying ‘but you are the wedding’. As a couple they were a joy to work with and we loved our times liaising and chatting over details.
The dusky pink rose bouquets were soft and spring like finished with lace to perfectly suit the style of the soft mint green bridesmaids’ dresses. Touches of variegated pittosporum picked up the pastel tone of the fabric. Sam’s rose bouquet finished her look for the day with lace trimmed cathedral veil and wonderful wedding dress.
Mike and the boys wore dusky pink rose button holes with a touch of pittosporum.
WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – CHURCH FLOWERS
Wroxall Abbey has a wonderful church just a short walk from the Mansion House and church flowers always include decoration of the wooden screen. Roses were threaded through the soft foliage garland to create a romantic backdrop for the service.
Sam and Mike wanted us to create a vintage glamour look to their centrepieces and we agreed on a mix of centrepieces, stunning candelabra festooned with flowers and soft foliage finished with trailing pearls, raised silver cake stands with pretty blooms, delicate three tier crystal cake stands trimmed with lace and pearls and the soft glow of votives and candles.
WINDOW SHUTTER TABLE PLAN
Mike loves comics and this fun couple chose to name their tables after characters including Spider Man and Batman for the top table. We displayed the stationery on our window shutter table plan making it easy for guests to find their seats. I loved seeing the newly married Dr and Dr McFarlane on their wedding day.
WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – HANGING BOTTLES
Outside the church the ancient yew tree is the perfect place to let some light and interest into the churchyard. Soft vintage rose heads hanging in apothecary bottles look great and make the churchyard seem brighter and more welcoming.
We love summer marquee wedding flowers and the opportunity to create elegant marquee wedding flowers. We were thrilled when Louise chose us to work with her on the florals for her elegant wedding in Orton on The Hill. The village is just gorgeous and perfect for a timeless summer wedding.
When getting ready at home it is always lovely to have some flowers around the place to relax you on the wedding morning and capture the essence of your wedding day. The elegant cream rose bouquets for the bride and all her bridesmaids were delivered in vases to keep them fresh on a hot summer’s day.
CREAM ROSE BUTTON HOLES WITH NAME TAGS
Cream rose button holes are always elegant and adding name tags make the morning handing out much easier. We added a touch of gold ribbon to tie in with the colours for this elegant wedding and to complement the ribbon on the bouquets.
ORTON ON THE HILL CHURCH WEDDING
The village church was full with family and guests and made the perfect setting for this radiant bride and her bridesmaids. The emotions of the day have been beautifully captured.
SUMMER MARQUEE WEDDING IN ORTON ON THE HILL
After the church service the bridal party and wedding guests strolled over to the marquee and gorgeous garden setting for this summer marquee wedding in Orton on the Hill. Neil and Louise enjoyed al fresco drinks with their guests as they arrived from church.
FLOWER GARLAND OVER THE BENCH
The lake setting was gorgeous for photos and relaxing and we added a flower garland over the bench as well as decoration to the gazebo. It is these extra touches that really bring your wedding together and make the day so memorable for you and your guests. Again gold ribbon, which we had sourced from the States, completed the elegant look.
WINDOW SHUTTER TABLE PLAN FOR THIS SUMMER MARQUEE WEDDING
At Passion for Flowers we source many props for our weddings and Louise had her eye on an eye catching table plan, we found a perfect window shutter table plan and an elegant stand to complement the gorgeous marquee setting.
SUMMER MARQUEE WEDDING FLOWERS – TOP TABLE FOOTED VASES
The creams, gold and silver looked splendid in the marquee and we made a statement top table including silver footed vases, candlesticks, pearls and an abundance of votives set on silver trays.
SUMMER MARQUEE WEDDING FLOWERS – ELEGANT CANDELABRA WITH CREAM ROSES
Elegant candelabra with cream roses and hydrangea created just the right ambience for the marquee, keeping the palette neutral like this with touches of silver, gold and candlelight bring a feeling of calm elegance to a summer marquee wedding.
SUMMER MARQUEE WEDDING CAKE FLOWERS
A simple posy was added to the cake with rose heads at the base. Photos of family weddings were displayed in silver frames alongside the bridal bouquet.Credits – Florist: Passion for Flowers // Photographer: Simon Bunney // Marquee: Fews Marquees
When I first met Sarah and Cam I knew we would all get along famously and that we could help them create a beautiful wedding at Ettington Park.The moment they showed me their travel inspired Save The Date’s on a luggage tag I loved them. They met and got engaged on a plane so the travel idea was just perfect. The brand colours for their wedding of coral, mint and peach with grey, were great to work with and we highlighted garden roses in soft peach tones,ranunculus and the grey tones of eucalyptus, brunia and lamb’s ears with rustic touches.
PEACH CREAM AND GREY BRIDAL BOUQUET
Sarah had chosen a gorgeous dreamy dress and knew the style of bouquet she wanted for her peach, cream and grey bridal bouquet. We chose a mix of David Austin garden roses in peach and cream with snippets of grey brunia and cream ranunculus finished with hessian and heart buttons.
PEACH & MINT GREEN BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The bridesmaids wore navy dresses which we teamed with bouquets in a mix of peach and mint green, again finished with hessian and twine. The bouquets were created with a mix of David Austin peach roses, Bloom chrysanthemums, wax flower and soft lambs ears for texture and the perfect mint green tone.
PEACH ROSE BUTTONHOLES ON A SLATE TILE
Cam gave out the peach rose buttonholes presented on a slate tile to the bridal party.
ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING CEREMONY – FRESH PETALS & SILVER LANTERNS
The ceremony room at Ettington Park was full of fresh rose petals to line the aisle and soft candelight from the silver lanterns to herald Sarah’s arrival for the ceremony. I love the date on the ceremony table with jars with succulents in just the perfect shade of mint green. The sun came out for some wonderful photos at Ettington Park.
ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING – PRETTY PAPER LANTERNS WITH PEACH & MINT GREEN FLOWERS
In the Long Gallery the party continued and Sarah and Cam were keen to add extra lighting and interest in the room, the pretty paper lanterns and lights looked wonderful and added a fairytale look to the space. The tables were filled with glass vases and apothecary bottles in mint green to create a light look and feel to the tables, flowers were chosen in peach and cream with dashes of mint green foliage.
ROSEMARY PLACE SETTINGS
A sprig of English rosemary completed the place settings for each guest. Did you spot the plane on the gorgeous menu, Cam and Sarah first met on a plane and Cam proposed on a plane so it was a key element to their day!
Rachel and Matt held their wedding at Edgbaston Old Church followed by a reception at Mallory Court. The couple asked us to create purple wedding flowers with a mix of tones and summer flowers.
PURPLE BRIDAL BOUQUET
Rachel’s purple bridal bouquet was just lovely for a summer wedding with blooms including lisianthus, roses, freesia with touches of grey eucalyptus and cineria to finish.
CREAM AND PURPLE FLOWER GIRL POSY
It is always lovely to continue the bridal colours through the whole of the wedding party and a pretty cream and purple flower girl posy suits young girls.
PURPLE ROSE BUTTON HOLES
For the groom we prepared a purple rose button hole and chose Ocean Song rose for just the perfect tone.
WEDDING FLOWERS MALLORY COURT
We enjoy creating wedding flowers at Mallory Court especially in the summer months when the gardens are so perfect for elegant outdoor photos.
FOOTED VASES AND CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES
The cream and purple colours were carried through into the reception with a mix of silver footed bowls and elegant silver candelabra. Soft fluffy hydrangeas added to the mix to bring more cream into the room.
Louise and Neil had an elegant marquee wedding in a private home in Orton on the Hill, they were married in the lovely church next door. We will blog more about this elegant wedding soon but for now we just wanted to show you our wooden window shutter table plan and how it can be styled.
As soon as we heard about Justine’s Ian Stuart dress we knew we had to create a perfect bouquet to set it off; we agreed on a cream and nude bouquet with an abundance of quicksand roses, ranunculus, snippets of astrantia. Justine was overjoyed with the florals for the day and her cream and nude roses bridal bouquet. We feel it worked wonderfully with her statement dress totally in keeping with the elegant, romantic look.
For the bridesmaids we created blousy white hydrangea bouquets to link with the softness of the brides Ian Stuart dress.
WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CEREMONY URNS WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF GREEN & NUDE FLORALS
Walton Hall Wedding Flowers and decorations are always elegant and in keeping with this gorgeous venue. We met Justine and Andy at the National Wedding Show and they fell in love with our rustic inspired urns and table decorations and we worked closely with them to design the florals for the ceremony urns with an abundance of green and nude florals. Eucalyptus, hydrangea, lisianthus, viburnum opulus or guelder rose with quicksand roses toned beautifully with the elegant mercury silver candlesticks and elegance of Walton Hall.
WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ ELEGANT TABLE CENTREPIECES
At Walton Hall it is key to use elegant table centrepieces, here with some rustic textures and soft tones of flowers, we combined mercury silver hurricane vases for the elegance with a soft mix of hydrangea, ranunculus, anemones, guelder roses as well as quicksand roses. The urns for the ceremony were later re-purposed in the alcoves to be enjoyed during the wedding breakfast. Justine loves candles and we had filled the fireplace, tables and windowsills with a mix of mercury candlesticks and tea lights, another elegant touch.
THANK YOU FLOWERS IN JUGS
The mum’s always appreciate a thank you gift and florals are especially welcome. Justine and Andy chose thank you flowers in jugs, keeping with their elegant, rustic wedding look, the jugs can be used again and again and kept as a reminder of a lovely wedding day.
Thank you Danielle for such gorgeous photos, we always love working with you. If you are looking for a florist for your Walton Hall wedding we would love to hear from you.
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.
