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′.

Peony season is always a treat for the senses and these bouquets full of scented peonies, roses with added textures looked great for a dusky pink and white colour scheme. The  bouquets had the addition of feathery astilbe, succulents and spray roses to create a beautiful mixed summer bouquet.

Epic Barn Wedding with Lanterns, Candlelight & Organic Natural Flowers

Barn wedding ceremony lots of candles lanterns - wedding florist Passion for Flowers

We love travelling around the country to create weddings with stylish couples and jumped at the chance to decorate an epic barn for the wedding of Tiffany and Kris in September. A site visit is essential if we have not worked at a venue before, visiting together with Tiffany and her mum gave us the chance to see how we could bring this barn to life.

Tiiffany had clear ideas and was  looking for a boho style wedding celebration with white, green, gold, blue and grey colours with a Cinderella look. As the barn is quite dark she was thinking of lots of candles, twinkling lights and white flowers to add light wherever possible. Well take a look a see how this was achieved.

Final morning preparations for button holes and corsages is always a calming task to carry out before the buzz of the wedding day.

BARN CEREMONY WITH CANDLELIGHT & ORGANIC FLORAL DESIGNS FULL OF FOLIAGE

A set up like this needs access the day before for the lighting to go up and the decor to be started. Organic foliage and floral designs decorated the beams and the  ceremony tables to form a romantic backdrop to the ceremony.

FULL-LENGTH TOP TABLE GARLANDS

The top table is key to any wedding celebration and is the focus of much of the day. For Tiffany and Kris we created full length top table garlands full of scented eucalyptus foliage, the softest blue hydrangea, spray roses and other blooms and textures from the day. A mix of glass cylinders and bronze gold lanterns were added to light the table and foliage chair backs to complete the look.

THE WEDDING CAKE DECORATIONS – HANGING RING & LANTERNS

So every wedding cake deserves to be centrestage and so we created a hanging ring to be suspended over the wedding cake surrounded by a masse of candles. This was the most romantic setting for Tiffany and Kris to cut their cake in front of family and friends.

Hampton Manor Wedding Florist – Ferns, Moss & Delicate Flower Crown

Rustic woodland wedding top table decorations Hampton Manor

Jessi and Jamie asked us to create a  ‘Secret Garden’ look and feel to the English part of their wedding celebrations. We loved coming up with ideas and working with this lovely couple to create their wedding look. It is so wonderful when our couples have confidence in us and give us comments like this:

“Thank you so much Karen! We trust you completely so  whatever you think would make the feel of it come alive works for us! “

THE BOUQUETS

Jessi carried a romantic white peony bouquet and for her maids a bunch of scented lavender keep the look natural and so so English.

CYLINDER VASE LANTERNS, BRONZE FLORAL STANDS & A DOG

Well we loved creating this look for this romantic look with cylinder vases down the aisle, bronze stands with natural arrangements including English Margaret Merrill roses, ferns, trailing foliage and clematis with simple bunches of English lavender to the chairs. Most of all we loved their beloved dog Oreo who stole the show in his bespoke waistcoat.

SECRET GARDEN INSPIRED WEDDING CENTREPIECES – MOSS, BOOKS & FERNS

So when your couple love books and especially the Secret Garden that gives plenty of scope for the most beautiful set up in Hampton Manor. Moss runners and books, delicate ferns in china tea cups and the most beautiful blooms created a gorgeous look and feel to the room. Jamie is one romantic groom and there was not a dry eye in the room when he surprised his bride with an interruption to the speeches when an amateur dramatic group began renditions from Les Miserables, her favourite musical. This was performed in front of her eyes and was one incredible surprise.

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.

Hurricane lamps with candles and an asymetric eucalyptus and flower wreath continued the look set on the church door. Smaller arrangements were set along the table with a simple place setting of eucalyptus.

We loved receiving this note before Seonaid and Oliver set off on honeymoon.

‘Just a little note to say a HUGE big thank you for all of your hard work yesterday.  What can I say……the flowers were simply stunning!
Our breathe was taken away when we had a sneak peak into the restaurant prior to everyone being seated.  I know we discussed the brief, but how you interpreted it was totally beyond expectations!
Thanks again for contributing towards making our day simply perfect!’

Birch Arch Scroll Wedding Backdrop: Hampton Manor

Rustic Birch Arch Scroll Backdrop Hampton Manor Wedding Florist Passion for Flowers

We usually use our birch arch covered in flowers and foliage to create a rustic frame for a wedding ceremony. Here is another use for it. At the recent Hampton Manor wedding fair, we showed our birch arch as a backdrop with a  bespoke scroll hanging from it. This backdrop could be used behind the wedding ceremony, behind a top table or behind a cake table or dessert bar.

The scroll reads “Love is old, love is new, love is all, love is you” but we would love to create this to say something of your choice.

BIRCH ARCH SCROLL WEDDING BACKDROP

A wedding backdrop is a great styling trick to add to your venue decor. Here a pared-back birch arch has a personalised scroll and delicate foliage, glass hanging baubles, rustic tree stumps, an abundance of candles and relaxed planting and florals to create a great backdrop for your wedding day.

ALTERNATIVE WREATH – CART WHEEL

For an alternative wreath, we created an asymmetric floral decoration around an old cartwheel, perfect for welcoming guests to your wedding ceremony. Here the arrow reads flowers, but for a ceremony, we could change it to welcome, or later for drinks or bar.

Hampton Manor Tall Centrepieces – Gold Floral Stands & Tall Rustic Branch Stands

Looking for tall wedding centrepice ideas for your Hampton Manor wedding? Hampton Manor suits tall centrepieces. At the spring wedding fair we showed our two newest floral stands both of which would be perfect for Hampton Manor, depending on your style. This rustic branch stands would also suit barn wedding venues, or could be used as floor standing arrangements to frame your ceremony in The Birches and later used on the tables.

TALL GOLD STANDS

Tall gold stands are great for adding height and a WOW factor to a room. Here a lush arrangement with trailing foliage and a mix of scented roses, ranunculus, tuberose and tulips filled the room with scent and romance. The stands can be set out along tables or to form a top table arrangement. Smaller vases and candlesticks along the table finish the look.

TALL RUSTIC CENTREPICES – BRANCH STANDS

Tall bronze branch stands add an element of drama to the room, they suit relaxed mixed foliage displays with highlights of seasonal blooms. Here we added a mix of beautiful English tulips perfect for a spring wedding. These stands can be used floor standing at the entrance to a room, either side of the aisle or ceremony and later for the dinner.

Extra details  are always appreciated a single stem to the chair and place setting is a lovely touch.
