New Year’s Eve is a special time for celebrations and we were honoured to assist Kristin and Tim with their wedding flowers and styling at Hampton Manor.

THE CEREMONY – BIRCH ARBOUR

The ceremony was a beautiful affair with a birch arbour trimmed with the softest drapes to create a soft, romantic backdrop. The organic mix of foliage and flowers was continued throughout the day with hand tied bunches of foliage to the aisle chairs to bring the outdoors in.  A traditional Chinese tea ceremony was an integral part of the ceremony. Here tea is lovingly poured by Kristin.

Natural Organic Style Wedding Flowers: Green & Gold Ideas

Mythe Barn Wedding Florist Passion for Flowers Natural Organic Style Flowers

We always love a collaboration and when asked by Country Wedding Venues if we would like to work with The Rustic Wedding Company in styling Mythe Barn we jumped at the chance. We love a rustic wedding as do so many of our wedding couples.

NATURAL ORGANIC CEREMONY AT MYTHE BARN – BIRCH ARCH

Natural organic style wedding flowers are key to creating a relaxed look to a rustic wedding. Starting with our birch arch we added a mix of foliage, we usually use a mix of at least 3 different types of foliage, with a mix of roses, helebores and lisianthus to lighten the look.

Our tree stumps and lanterns tied the look together with a mix of candlesticks. Aisle chairs were finished off with a bunch of eucalyptus to complete the look. The wooden ceremony table has a soft runner, an array of gold candlesticks and a mass of foliage garland with highlights of natural flowers.

BACKDROP BEHIND TOP TABLE

If you are having a backdrop behind the top table make sure it continues the feel of your wedding day, for a rustic wedding add large amounts of foliage for a natural organic look.

LONG TOP TABLE: GOLD AND GREEN WEDDING STYLING

All eyes are on the top table and it should be a feast for the senses, this will be the focal point for the duration of the speeches so you’ll want it to look as pretty as can be. The richness of the gold together with the organic green foliage and soft, delicate blooms caught the magic of the day. I just love the whimsical astilbe in the gold vases and the softest anemones in the lower vases. Each place setting had a snippet of foliage and gold cut out name as a place card / favour.

Gemma’s Wedding – Dreamy Destination Wedding Tuscany

Anna Campbell Adelaide Wedding Gown, Couple portraits Destination wedding Tuscany, Wedding Car Garlands

Every mother dreams of her daughter’s wedding and so when Gemma and Richard announced their engagement and plans for a dreamy destination wedding in Tuscany I was beyond excited. Being a mother and daughter florist team we live and breathe weddings and Gemma’s was no exception.

From the start we wanted Gemma’s wedding to be a relaxed day with family and friends and we are so thankful to everyone that played a part in her wedding. Planning a wedding even we you are in the wedding industry is no easy task but there is nothing we would change, all the effort was worth it.

As you can imagine there were lots of photos and we wanted to share them all with you. We have split the wedding up into sections, scroll down to see everything. The smaller images can be clicked on if you want to pin them or make them full size.

WEDDING PREPARATIONS – LOCANDA IN TUSCANY

Months of planning gave way to the excitement of arriving at our beautiful location in Tuscany to start creating the wedding we had all been dreaming of. All of our vases, signage, dressing, runners and details were sent out from our company The Wedding of My Dreams by van to arrive at our venue to await us.

Wedding preparations continued with the arrival of the flowers and foliage from our friends at Florismart as well as a few local grown specials from Puscina Flowers.  We had invited Lois one of our florists to travel out to Tuscany and work with us to create all this beauty. We have a large family and many able helpers so we enlisted their help in dressing the venue. No task went unchecked as Gemma had planned all the details so brilliantly that we had an amazing work schedule to keep us on track. Whilst Gemma, Lois and I concentrated on the larger arrangements we knew the dressing of the gazebo, foliage hoops, hanging of lanterns, setting out of signs and filling of vases for the centrepieces was happening all around us.

BRIDAL PARTY GETTING READY, LOCANDA IN TUSCANY

The venue had plenty of space for Richard and the boys to get ready in the rooms surrounding the pool whilst Gemma and the girls enjoyed the coolness of the main house for their preparations.

We chose to take out our wedding industry friends with us including Make up by Jodie who did an amazing job keeping us relaxed whilst ensuring we were ready in good time.

Gemma’s dress and her bridesmaids gowns were chosen from Coco and Kate and she just loved the Anna Campbell, Adelaide dress she wore. I managed to find a beautiful Gina Baconi outfit to complement her look. The boys looked relaxed in their white shirts and chinos with Richard wearing a well cut grey jacket. Of course Olivia was the main star of the day with her white and silver dress and good nature.

OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY, BAGNO VIGNONI, TUSCANY

Gemma and Richard chose the romantic setting of the Loggiato in Bagno Vignoni for their outdoor wedding ceremony. The backdrop was so beautiful with the old buildings and thermal pool. We dressed the wooden chairs with flowing runners which blew in the breeze and added large urns with natural organic designed florals and foliage. We even found an antique wooden crib for Olivia and added a flower garland to entice her in. Foliage hoops set the scene and were continued at Locanda as a way of linking our venues.

The garland for the car was a joy to create and I was so thrilled to see Gemma be driven to the ceremony by her father Richard and return after the ceremony with her husband Richard to be welcomed by family and friends.

WEDDING DRINKS RECEPTION, LOCANDA IN TUSCANY

After transporting our guests to our hillside location, a relaxed atmosphere was the order of the day. Food stations were set out offering the very best in Tuscan fare whilst everyone enjoyed cocktails and welcome drinks.

Shade was important for some of the guests and so gazebos and decorated pergolas provided plenty of spaces to chat and relax. Garden games were set out for those who wanted and we loved creating our family tree.

WEDDING GUEST TABLES, ALFRESCO WEDDING LONG WOODEN TABLES

Gemma and Richard knew they wanted the evening meal to be on long tables, under lights surrounded by family and friends. We chose our caterers with the help of our planner Francesca and agreed on the rustic style tables and chairs with long runners. The flowers in a mix of antique gold bottles vases, glass bottles with gold rims with hundreds of bronze tea lights and lanterns created a magical look. As the light faded the candles were lit and the table lanterns enhanced the setting.

EXTRA DETAILS, WEDDING CAKE, BAR, POOL DECORATIONS & DANCE FLOOR

Gemma and Richard decorated their own cake under the direction of the chefs. The loggia backdrop with its fireplace and informal seating was a wonderful place to decorate and relax in late in the evening. Lanterns laid out around the pool added to the magic and romance of the evening, organic arrangements in small urns were placed on the American bar, lanterns and fairy lights lit the dance floor under the pergola so the party could continue well into the early hours.

I can truly say this was the happiest day of our lives and when we had our last glass or two of wine when all the guests had left we all agreed we would not have done it any other way. I am so happy for Gemma Richard and Olivia as they enjoy their married life as the 3 Kings.

With love Karen x

Deep Pink Organic Style Flowers at Shustoke Farm Barns

Organic style floral church arch pink and green Passion for Flowers

Maria and Rik are such a photogenic couple and the loveliest of clients. Maria and I enjoyed many happy hours planning the designs for her summer church wedding and reception at Shustoke Farm  Barns.  We had the pleasure of creating flowers for her sister’s wedding a couple of years back so jumped at the chance to work with these lovely people again. Add to the mix that Steve Gerrard was flying back to capture their day and we knew a good day was to be had by all.

ORGANIC STYLE DEEP PINK BOUQUETS

The organic style of bouquets suited Maria’s dress chosen from our friends at Tilly Trotters Bridal in Leamington. A hand chosen selection of blooms including deep pink dahlia, scabious and soft pink roses were combined with a mix of textured foliage for this late August wedding.

ORGANIC STYLE FLOWERS – CHURCH ARCH

The tiny church at Corley Moor is a real hidden treasure, filled with candlelight it was overflowing with emotion for this wedding. The organic style arch was created to work with the natural beauty of the weathered stone. A base of foliage with trailing amaranthus and natural flowers accentuated the beauty of of the church so much so that the Vicar was heard to comment “I should have flowers hanging for every wedding”

ORGANIC STYLE FLOWERS – TABLE CENTRES TALL AND LOW

We continued the organic style florals in to the reception. We styled the tables with a mix of tall and low table centres, keeping the flowers and foliage organic and lush. Tall designs on bronze/gold stands or tall bronze vases with large urns for the top table overflowing with natural organic styled flowers and foliage. Fresh rosemary was added to the place settings where everyone had their name in gold.

EXTRA STYLING DETAILS

The courtyard at Shustoke is gorgeous with its olive trees and natural planting. We had fun decorating the bike for Rik and the boys as well as adding extra styling details to the table plan. For a welcome touch we added rococco style candlesticks and foliage, as well as decorating their mirror table plan with a foliage garland and we always love adding our floral touch to a wedding cake table.

Birch Arch Rustic Ceremony at Hampton Manor

Birch arch wedding ceremony rustic wedding at Hampton Manor Passion for Flowers (1)

Our birch arch makes a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony. The ceremony barn at Hampton Manor is the perfect setting. We created this autumnal setting at Hampton Manor using large tree stumps down the aisle with candle in clear glass cylinder vases making a lovely setting for the entrance of the bride.

The focal point is of course the birch arch which we draped with sheer white material and organic style florals to each corner, we used lush foliage, dark red hydrangeas, nude roses and larger statement blooms for a textured autumnal look.

Gorgeous Summer Wedding At Shustoke Farm Barns (Video)

heather and stewart shustoke farm barns wedding

Heather and Stewart were married earlier this year at Shustoke Farm Barns. Once you see their heartfelt video by Blue Ridge Weddings I think you’ll agree with me this was such a dreamy wedding and we loved being a part of it and creating the florals.

Heather had a stunning organic bouquet of garden roses, dusky pink roses, lavender,hydrangeas and eucalyptus.

Button holes were dusky pink roses, thistle and eucalyptus.

We created hanging rings from the beams which are a must have at Shustoke. Hanging flowers will frame the aisle and are captured in all the photos, they are enjoyed for the wedding breakfast and right up until the final farewells.

HANGING FLOWERS AND FLOWER CANOPIES FOR CEREMONY TABLES

Hanging flowers over top table wedding ideas

Flower friends are great and as florists we enjoy working and learning together. Earlier in the year I was delighted to spend time  with Alison from Mad Lilies and Janet from the Flower Room Belfast. Alison had kindly invited Sabine Darrall to join us for the day and work with us all to create bountiful and beautiful flowers in the stunning English countryside. I had long admired Sabine’s work but had never had the opportunity to spend time with her and learn from her.  We started off with a relaxed evening together talking all things flowery and more besides!

All the flowers and foliage were beautifully conditioned ready for our flowery adventure.

TOP TABLE STYLING WITH HANGING FLOWERS ABOVE

Hanging flowers always hit the spot and a chandelier over a top table is just so lush with a mix of spring blooms. The table below was styled with runners, candlesticks, bottles  and tea lights from our sister company theweddingofmydreams. Dreamy floral place settings lovingly tied with ribbon completed this romantic,spring look.

HANGING FLOWER INSTALLATION OVER TOP TABLE

We kept the look on the table light and airy so as not to distract from the star attraction the hanging flower installation. For a top table it is always lovely to have a great feature iin place for added impact when it comes to the speeches.

CEREMONY TABLE WITH FLOWER CANOPY OVER HEAD

For a ceremony table with a soft, romantic feel we worked together to create a flower canopy. This lush design was oozing with scented roses, tulips, ranunculi and masses of different foliages for texture.

An asymetric grouping of bottles, vases and votives is perfect for the table with a lush footed urn as the centrepiece. This look really allows your guests to see the individual blooms and appreciate the true beauty of the flowers.

CEREMONY ARCHES – PURPLE, LILAC AND RED

We love creating wild, relaxed florals and worked together to create this beautiful ceremony arch perfect for a country garden or rustic inspired wedding. The rich mix of purple, lilac and red were jewel tones and really made our hearts sing. The finishing touches of logs, lanterns and potting shed finds were just perfect to complete the look. Working together was a fun and heartwarming experience.

CEREMONY ARCHES –  LILAC, PINK AND PEACH

For a more subdued look then lilac, pink an peach fit the bill, an abundance of scented lilac, soft and delicate helebroes, snapdragon, wax flower, viburnum berries, delicate scabious and the softest blush and peach roses made a great choice.

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.

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

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.

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.
