BARTON COURT WEDDING VENUE – FLORISTS

Barton Court Wedding Florist

It was lovely to be invited to celebrate the opening of Barton Court a beautiful wedding venue. As the owner Linda told me “This glorious house will appeal to all those couples for whom the bland hotel wedding is simply not an option.  For those who insist on authenticity, intimacy, creativity and charm – and on a truly magical setting for their most important day, Barton Court will be ideal.”

“Barton Court is all about love.  Henry Lambert created the estate in 1780 as a gift for his soon-to-be wife. We fell in love with it at first sight. It is a perfect little gem of a country house set in 6 acres of private grounds surrounded by some of the finest views in the country.”

Barton Court is a small country house estate, made up of the main house and several interesting outbuildings set in 6 acres of gardens.  The property sits on the edge of the village of Colwall near Malvern and Ledbury and has uninterrupted views of the glorious countryside that surrounds it.

The main house, the Clock Tower and the ancillary buildings can be rented for short breaks, weddings and events, altogether, in various combinations or separately.

We have not yet worked at Barton Court as it is new to the wedding world, but we are happy to recommend this venue to our couples and would be delighted to work with the team at Barton House on weddings. These photos below were taken from their open day to show how the venue can be dressed, flowers by talented florists whose work we enjoyed. Sabine Darrall is a great favourite of ours and we loved how she had decorated the entrance hall in such an organic and natural style. The ceremony barn was beautifully dressed by Helen Walker of BrideandBloom with an arch and meadow style planting to line the aisle.

Natural Flowers At The Ashes Wedding Venue – Florist Passion for Flowers

The Ashes Wedding Florist Passion for Flowers

Hannah and Rishi were married at The Ashes, the most beautiful countryside venue, a place where you feel relaxed as you arrive and revived when you leave. We were delighted to be asked to work with Hannah and Rishi on their wedding as we had the pleasure of creating flowers for Rishi’s brother’s wedding at Shustoke Barns previously.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

The bridal bouquet was a mix of hydrangea and roses in beautiful tones. The whole look was chosen to remind Hannah of the family garden.

The barn at the Ashes is a warm and inviting ceremony space and we love adding a feature arch for the ceremony. Lashing of eucalyptus foliage, ivy and hanging amaranthus set the scenes with colours being added to tie in with Hannah and Rishi’s colours from the day.

FLORAL ARCH OVER DOORWAY

The floral arch proved popular as a photo backdrop for some fun photos on the day.

Hannah and Rishi had collected a lovely selection of antique vases, copper coffee pots and smaller bowls we incorporated into the table decoration with the addition of some crystal glass. Delicate stems of ivy and soft scented flowers were added bringing colour to the tables. I loved the old photos that Hannah had displayed in photo frames for each table.

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.

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.

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.

LARGE TRAILING WILD BOUQUET

Flowers and scent were key to this wedding and the pure joy and delight as we brought the bouquets in to Brides Manor on the wedding day was for all to see, an emotional day but one we will remember for many years to come. Laura gave us a free rein on the final design of her bouquet, but we were thrilled to have been given photos of her grandma’s bouquet as a great starting point and took inspiration from that with the trailing asparagus fern and roses. The bouquet contained the most scented of David Austin roses and was a joy to create.

Organic Bouquet For A Stunning Hayley Paige Wedding Dress

Fairy tale weddings are magical and the setting at Blackwell Grange on a summer’s day was the setting for Danielle and Lorance. The images captured of their day show their love for each other and the elegant style of their day.
Danielle wore a stunning Hayley Paige gown from the lovely Sophie at CocoandKate in Hatton. They have a wonderful range of designer wedding dresses and offer expert advice in choosing the perfect wedding dress. A dress of this stature needed a statement bouquet and we designed an organic bouquet with a bountiful mix of roses and dahlias to complement the bridal and bridesmaids dresses.

WEDDING BOUQUETS

Delivering the wedding bouquets on the wedding morning is always an emotional time and we loved the excitement when a bride first sees the bridal party flowers.

STUNNING WEDDING CAKE

The icing on the cake for any wedding is a cake from Ben the Cakeman. This semi naked cake design is just so stunning. We love to meet Ben on the morning of the wedding with fresh flowers which he then works his magic on to create an amaziing look which always surpasses our expectations.

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.

Staircase Flowers at Hampton Manor – Autumn Wedding Styling

STAIRCASE FLOWERS – HAMPTON MANOR

Creating flowers at Hampton Manor for weddings is always a treat, the warm wood, stone arches in this arts and craft house need the right floral touches to bring them to life. If your budget permits staircase flowers are a wow factor statement. The bride and her bridesmaids will walk down these stairs before heading to their ceremony, walking through an avenue of flowers is the perfect way to start your day, and imagine the photos your photographer will get!

These staircase flowers will be a focal point during your drinks reception creating a warm welcome for your guests and setting the tone for the rest of your day before they head through to Elizabeth’s Court. Here at Passion for Flowers we always jump at the chance to decorate the staircase for a wedding. Foliage, seasonal blooms and dashes of candlelight show you what can be done. This is for an autumn wedding but the look can be adapted depending on the season you have chosen to tie the knot.
