Kilworth House is a delight to decorate and Kathryn and Bailey were looking for natural flowers in bright warm colours, with coral peonies and gloriosa lilies. We first met at The National Wedding Show and were chosen to bring Kate’s vision to life.

Whilst guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the terrace the team moved in to decorate the room with luxe gold vases as centrepieces. The flowers in bright pink, coral and orange complemented the soft gold cloths, stylish charger plates, gold cutlery and luxe glassware. Every last detail was carefully coordinated to ensure this Kilworth House couple had the most amazing of wedding days.

FLOWERS FOR THE CHEESE CAKE

Bailey, Kathryn and families have a love of good food and cheese so the choice of cake was a labour of love. Each cheese stack had been carefully selected as a favourite and we loved the opportunity to style the table with a rustic wooden tree slice and beautiful blooms from their day.

I was thrilled to receive thanks from Kathryn and Bailey and a lovely note from Kathryn’s mum, “We knew from day 1 that you were the florist for us and I would recommend you to anyone; worth every penny (or £)! Thanks again for the visual impact you created for a perfect day.”

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FLOWER CROWNS + HANGING GLOBES

Caroline and Rob tied the knot at Shustsoke Farm Barns on 1 August surrounded by family and friends. Caroline enjoyed the planning of her summer wedding and had a great eye for colour, the one thing she was certain of was she wanted to wear a flower crown for her wedding cermeony and hanging globes in the barn.

FLOWER CROWN – PINK, BLUE & GREEN HYDRANGEAS & ROSES

At our first meeting Caroline arrived with a gorgeous water colour board with inspiration for her day, tones of pinks, blues and greens. The flower crown we designed was very blousy and suited her curls on the day with a mix of pink, blue and green hydrangea with Sweet Avalanche and Ocean song roses. When the flowers were delivered in the morning the squeals of delight were wonderful to hear. The happiness captured in these photos at the start of the day continued throughout the day. What a beautiful relaxed and happy wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – CEREMONY FLOWERS

The ceremony barn was filled with flowers, Rob had made a rustic wooden planter for us to fill with blooms from the day – hydrangeas, feathery astilbe, eucalyptus and roses with moss to edge. Together with the large hanging flower globes filled with a mix of hydrangeas and eucalyptus the wooden planter gave just the look Caroline and Rob had hoped for. I just love the rustic tree slice ring box.

BUTTON HOLES FOR THE BOYS

The boys had a mix of rustic styled button holes with hydrangea and eucalyptus finished with twine with a billy button for the youngest. How cute is his Ring Security shirt!

BRIDAL & BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – BRIGHT SUMMER FLOWERS

Caroline brought one of the dresses over to show me so we could finalise colours for the bouquets and we had great fun selecting such lovely bright summer flowers in colours of pink, green, lilac and blue. The long lace trailing ribbons for the bridesmaids added a good contrast to their floral dresses and finished off the look. The lace was also used to trail from Caroline’s flower crown. The bride herself carried a large bouquet of mixed hydrangeas and roses to offset her flower crown. Caroline bought cream jugs and attached personal tags for each of her maids.

FLOWER GARLAND AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

As guests and finally the bridal party arrived at Shustoke Famr Barns they were greeted by a rustic country style flower garland hanging above the oak doors to the barn. Once inside everyone  was greeted with a wonderfully hand crafted table plan and so many other personal touches.

TOP TABLE FLOWERS IN A RUSTIC CRATE – SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

The top table was the centre of attention for the meal and speeches with the rustic crate  handcrafted with love by Rob taking centre stage. The crate was over a metre in length and looked as if it was made for the barn.

PASTEL TONED FLOWERS FOR THE TABLES – WATER COLOUR THEME

Caroline had a water colour theme to her tables with handmade table numbers, beautifully hand dyed cloths in soft pastel tones on to which we added a mix of organic bottles and vases simply filled with just the right pastel toned blooms.

HANGING FLOWER GLOBES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

Caroline had seen photos of one of our previous barn weddings and just knew she wanted large flower globes to be part of her day. The hanging globes are a great treat for us to create and we just love how they can transform this large space. If you are having your ceremony at the barn, followed by the meal and then the evening the hanging globes can be enjoyed throughout the day and add that extra WOW factor to your day.

WEDDING CAKE ON A TREE SLICE WITH FLOWERS

The wedding cake just needed simple blooms to add a touch of colour and be set on a rustic tree slice. We love the bit of whimsy with the beetle and the ladybird.

It is over a year since we first designed wedding flowers for Shustoke Farm Barns and we just love returning time after time as it gives us the opportunity to style it differently for each and every wedding. Our style is always in keeping with the natural look and feel of this wonderful wedding venue.

WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING

circus themed wedding

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.

CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING CENTREPIECES – CANDELABRA, GIN BOTTLES & VINTAGE TINS

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.
