BURGUNDY DEEP PURPLE FLOWERS FOR WEDDING FLOWERS MAGAZINE

DEEP PURPLE WEDDING FLOWERS

Are you thinking of choosing deep purple and burgundy tones for your wedding flowers? Recently we were asked by Wedding Flowers Magazine to take our designs down to London to be shot for their November issue. We used deep purple / maroon / burgundy flowers mixed with a touch of gold to add some glamour.

DEEP PURPLE BRIDAL BOUQUET

For the bridal bouquet we used an natural mix of smoke bush and clematis foliage, deep toned dahlia perfect for an autumn wedding with scabious, scented Kiera rose, sloe berries and touches of trailing amaranthus. The mix of ribbons created a soft romantic finish.

DEEP PURPLE FLOWERS IN CRYSTAL BOWLS ON A GOLD PLATE FOR WEDDING CENTREPIECE

For the centrepiece we created an asymmetrical design in an antique crystal bowl filled with autumnal foliage and blooms, the gold plate added a touch of glamour and height to the design. The combination of autumnal foliage smoke bush, clematis with a mix of sedum and deep toned blooms were the perfect fit with the lush Kiera roses.

PLACE SETTINGS / ESCORT CARD IDEA

For the escort cards we used a mix of mini bottles with guests name and brought the outside in by incorporating snippets of foliage and flowers to set the tone for the day.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW 2015

Passion for Flowers stand at The National Wedding Show Birmingham

PASSION FOR FLOWERS STAND AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

At Passion for Flowers we love the chance to design our show stopping stand at The National Wedding Show. We are able to meet so many couples either just starting off on their wedding planning journey or wanting to be inspired for some last minute touches. Our stand showed a glimpse into our style of individually designed weddings. Every wedding is unique and designed with our couples in mind to reflect their tastes, venue and personalities. Passion for Flowers couples love flowers and have them high on their wedding list.

Cascading garlands of scented roses and foliage hung delicately from the muslin drapes. The large tablescape included a mix of bronze and gold vases and vessels filled with an autumnal mix of foliage and soft blooms. The hanging installation created a WOW factor to the stand with trailing amaranthus, roses, helebores and even more cascading foliage. Country house venues with fireplaces are lovely to decorate so we styled a fireplace with an asymetrical garland and bronze candlesticks.

BOUQUET FROM THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

A blousy bouquet in our natural romantic style with a heavenly mix of eucalyptus, astilbe, helebores, lisianthus and scented roses stole the show. We always love the richness of soft ribbons to trail.

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.

 HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING CEREMONY BARN

At Passion for Flowers we love Hampton Manor. Did you know they now have a Hampton Manor ceremony barn aptly named The Birches. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to style the Hampton Manor Wedding Ceremony Barn for the unveiling at their recent Wedding Fair. The Birches is set in a woodland glade and offers a unique place for a wedding ceremony.

RUSTIC WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR

The Hampton Manor wedding ceremony barn is a delight to style and offers so many possibilities. At Passion for Flowers we love working with our couples to create their dream wedding ceremony. The main ceremony room is light and airy and it looks wonderful with large statement urns overflowing with rustic flowers and large candlesticks adding light and interest around the barn. For a rustic touch add hessian sashes to the chairs and a hessian runner to the table. Hurricane lamps lining the aisle add warmth and light to the ceremony.

THE BIRCHES HAMPTON MANOR CEREMONY BARN ENTRANCE ~ RUSTIC STYLING

The entrance to the Hampton Manor wedding ceremony barn gives couples a great opportunity to add personal touches. We chose a woodland secret garden look complete with autumnal leaves, aged terracotta pots filled with sedums and candles,bark tea light holders and lots more candles. Rustic styling is just perfect for The Birches Hampton Manor Ceremony Barn. It is amazing how cosy the room feels with lots of candles against its natural wood.The rustic shelves are great for adding small items to make the entrance feel so welcoming and personal.Hampton Manor Wedding Ceremony Barn The BIrches Florist Passion for Flowers (42)Hampton Manor Wedding Ceremony Barn The BIrches Florist Passion for Flowers (43)Hampton Manor Wedding Ceremony Barn The BIrches Florist Passion for Flowers (41)

APOTHECARY BOTTLES ESCORT CARDS

At Passion for Flowers we love apothecary bottles and hang them from trees around the grounds or we what about this idea of using apothecary bottles as individual escort cards. Guests find their name and then take their apothecary bottle escort card with them to Peels and find their table. We think they look gorgeous here with rustic flowers and crab apples ideal for an autumnal wedding. For spring we can add tulips, muscari and narcissi and for summer just picked flowers or summer blooms depending on the flowers for your wedding day – the choice is yours. The rustic wooden crates we have used add interest in the Hampton Manor wedding ceremony barn and can be used to display books, photos and more candles.

VINTAGE GLAMOUR WEDDING FLOWERS ~ HAMPTON MANOR CEREMONY BARN

Here we have chosen a vintage glamour style oozing with crystal and glass ware, vintage cake stands, mercury silver and glass candlesticks complemented with an abundance of David Austin roses. This look would also look just perfect for the wedding tables in Peels, the light and airy atrium with its gorgeous chandelier is just waiting for a touch of vintage glamour.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS WEDDING – NUDE PINK ROSES & CREAM JUGS

cream-jugs-centrepieces-passion-for-flowers-shustoke-farm-barns.jpg

We are delighted to feature one of our most romatic summer weddings. We love Shustoke Farm Barn weddings and were thrilled to meet up with Natalie and her mum earlier in the year to discuss flowers for Natalie and Tom’s late September wedding. When Natalie mentioned she had chosen the amazing Ross Harvey as her photographer we knew the wedding would be beautifully captured.

All photos by Ross Harvey

THE BOUQUETS – NUDE PINK ROSES & HYDRANGEAS

One of the delights after an early start creating bridal party flowers is delivering them on the day and sharing the excitment as the bride is preparing for her day. The sheer joy and excitment when we presented Natalie with her flowers and finally saw her wonderful dress is a great memory for us all.

The bridal bouquet was a mix of nude pink roses Quicksand, Sweet Avalanche and Bombastic with snippets of texture, the bridesmads carried bouquets with a mix of hydrangea, Quicksand roses and snippets of pittosporum and the bouquets  perfectly set off  their blush dresses.

BUTTONHOLES

The boys looked elegant in their navy suits and nude pink buttonholes of Quicksand rose with a snippet of pittosporum. We love the tradition of the groom selecting a flower from his brides bouquet.

CREAM JUGS FOR BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

On a hot summers day it is good to have jugs ready for the bridesmaids bouquets to be placed in after the photos. They make a lovely gift for the girls to keep after the wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS WEDDING – CREAM JUGS, CREAM CANDELABRA & GIANT LIGHT UP LOVE LETTERS

The rustic charm of Shustoke Farm Barns is best suited to seasonal flowers, tealights and simple decorations leaving the framework of wood, metal, exposed brickwork and natural light to do the rest. Cream jugs with a blousy arrangement of blooms sat on the tables with the addition of a cream candelabra on the top tabe.   For that wow factor just add giant Light Up LOVE letters and a stunning bride and groom.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC GLAMOUR

step by step guide how to make wedding centrepieces - rustic glamour (5)

Another of our DIY tutorials was featured on Rock My Wedding this week. If you are thinking of making your own wedding centrepieces or maybe your Christmas dining table centrepieces then have a look at these easy to follow instructions. This step by step guide shows how to make a floral centrepiece using a ring of oasis, we have added a mercury silver hurricane vase to the centre for a rustic glamour look with ribbed silver tea light holders to finish. You can change the flowers and central lantern to create a floral centrepiece of a different style using the same guidelines.

For example you could use a clear glass hurricane vase or ribbed glass lantern in the centre, or for a more rustic look perhaps a bark lantern.

Photos by Adam Crohill, see the full instructions over on Rock My Wedding.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC GLAMOUR

step by step guide how to make wedding centrepiece - rustic glamour (2)

To keep this example simple and stylish we have used four ingredients, you can use more if you wish. We used eucalyptus (a lovely grey / green tone for winter), brunia (grey balls to add textures and soft tones), thistles (these add more texture and bring in a subtle blue tone) and finally fluffy white hydrangeas.

The above example is perfect for a rustic winter or rustic glamour wedding. Alternatively you could use different flowers for different seasons.

Spring example: for a pink and white scented spring wedding we suggest white ranunculus, soft pink freesias (adding a lovely scent), blush pink Sweet Avalanches Roses and greenery of your choice, seeded eucalyptus would look stunning. You could lighten with sprigs of gypsophila.

Summer example: for a peach and green toned summer wedding we suggest peach Juliet David Austin roses, cream David Austin roses, Wizard Of Oz Dahlias, tanacetum daisies and vibrant green amni and alchemilla mollis.

Autumn example: for a nude, grey and bronze toned autumn wedding we would suggest dusty miller, large cafe au lait dahlias, Quicksand roses, brunia, olive foliage and scabious seed pods.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – FLORISTS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

As you may know here at Passion for Flowers we exhibited at The National Wedding Show in Birmingham last weekend, we absolutely loved the whole weekend meeting newly engaged couples and industry friends. We plan our stand months in advance it was amazing to see our visions come to life, we believe all the hard work and planning paid off as we were thrilled to be awarded The Outstanding Exhibitor Award.

We invited Nicola of Daffodil Waves Photography along to take some photos of our stand for those of you who couldn’t make it to the show.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – A WEDDING FLORISTS STAND

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014- Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

We chose to create a rustic glamour setting for our stand this year, we often work at rustic style wedding venues (barns and farms) and love adding a touch of glamour to the tables mixed in with the natural rustic look.

LONG TABLE WITH A SEA OF FLOWERS AND GOLD CANDELABRA

The long table scape was our main feature this year, we set it for 6 to give an idea of how it could be used at a wedding. More venues are offering long tables for receptions now, or these florals could go along a top table.

Down the centre of the table we created a sea of flowers in bronze, gold and crystal glass vases with three gold candelabra to give height (all available to hire from Passion for Flowers).

The mix of flowers we used on the table were Quicksand roses, Secret Garden roses, Vendela roses, Bombastic spray roses, Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, white anemones, scabious seed heads, wax flower, brunia, dusty miller and eucalyptus.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

BRONZE TEA LIGHT HOLDERS & DETAILS

We used a number of decorations from our sister company The Wedding of my Dreams for extra styling, including bronze ribbed tea light holders and chunky bronze vases. At each place setting was an advice for the bride and groom coaster – we love this as an alternative wedding guest book.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

WEDDING STATIONERY

The stationery was by Tom Gautier of Paper & Things, we loved the individual menus and name cards with the floral illustration, and the table plan cards too. The name cards were used in our bud vase name card holders, which are just like old fashioned salt cellars.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

TALL GLASS VASES FOR CENTREPIECES

Along the back wall we displayed a tall centrepiece in a relaxed style, this could either be used as a centrepiece with a grouping of smaller bronze vases around the base or as a floral display at the wedding ceremony. The table plan is one of our newest and favourite table plans we hire out, we created a floral garland around the arch of the window shutters table plan with blush pink and nude florals in bronze vases running in front of it.

BRIDAL BOUQUETS

We had two bridal bouquets on display, both tied with glamorous gold ribbon to trail. The first was a blousy loose hand tied bouquet of Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, dusty miller and white astilbe. The other was a rose bouquet of Quicksand roses, Bombastic spray roses, wax flower and eucalyptus.

wedding-bouquets-nude-roses-blus-pink-roses-gold-ribbon

CHALKBOARD SIGNS

On the chair backs we used a couple of chalkboard chair signs from The Wedding of my Dreams, Mr & Mrs as well as Here Comes the Bride. On the other chairs we created floral chair garlands of eucalyptus, ivy, soft ruscus, scabious seed heads and wax flower for a relaxed rustic look.

FLOWER CROWNS

Each day at the show we wore flower crowns created with a similar mix of flowers we had used elsewhere in the displays.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

We used crates along the back wall to showcase some of our other favourite ideas, including rustic tree slices with a grouping of bottles, succulent wedding favours, sprinkle me confetti bags and our welcome wedding sign. Of course we proudly displayed our Best Wedding Florist in the West Midlands award.

THE CHAMPAGNE BAR FLOWERS

Here at Passion for Flowers we strategically chose a stand next to the champagne bar, mainly so we could treat ourselves at the end of a busy day! We created table centres for the tables on the champagne bar using soft pastel pinks and creams. The flowers we used in theses centrepieces were Sweet Avalanche roses, Bombastic spray roses, astilbe, wax flower, astrantia and white hydrangeas.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

WEDDING MAGAZINE STAND

We also loved creating the garlands for Wedding Magazine’s stand, and made the girls flower crowns to wear throughout the show. The garlands were in keeping with their bright pink logo so we used Kate David Austin roses, lisianthus, Wizard Of Oz dahlias, Harmony dahlias, Blue Curiosa roses, veronica, sedum, astrantia and poppy heads.

We love their comment…

The flowers on the stand were the best we have ever had, and we all LOVED the flower crowns you very kindly made.

ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING FLOWERS – CORAL, MINT GREEN & PEACH

coral mint green peach wedding flowers bouquets

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.

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.

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.

To celebrate their marriage at an English country hotel Sarah and Cam chose an afternoon tea party after the ceremony. Gorgeous home baked cookies and sweet delights filled the table. A cute posy to the main cake was just the right finishing touch with the Mr and Mrs cake bunting. Extra details including the cake flags and Just Married Hessian Bunting were from our sister site, The Wedding of my Dreams.

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.

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!

RUSTIC ELEGANT WEDDING FLOWERS ~ LEANNE & DAVID

rustic-elegant-weding-flowers-flower-crown

I first met Leanne at a wedding last summer and were more than thrilled when she asked if Passion for Flowers would be able to help her with styling and flowers for her spring wedding at South Farm. Leanne runs Blooming Lovely Films and we have admired her work and just love her style. We had great fun when we met David at the Wedding Industry Awards and were introduced to Ross Harvey who had been asked to photograph this epic wedding. Over the last months we met Leanne a number of times, shared pinterest boards and generally agreed on all things floral.

As it was our first wedding at South Farm we took the opportunity to meet up with Leanne and Dave early this year to see the how we could decorate and enhance the natural beauty of South Farm.

Leanne’s vision for the day was a relaxed day of happiness with family and loved ones. We know she did this and were so happy to be chosen as her florist. As she talked through ideas from the doors to the vespa to the Easter Egg hunt we knew how gorgeous their day would be and of course her divine Claire Pettibone dress.

Ross Harvey has done such a fantastic job at capturing this beautiful day.

Leanne and her bridesmaids enjoyed their morning of preparations and we were delighted to meet up with some of our industry friends  Make up by Jodie and Helena Sinclair Bridal Hair when we arrived with the flowers.

South Farm is simply stunning and we worked with its natural beauty to create timeless yet rustic elegant flowers. A mix of roses, clematis, wax flower, pittosporum, hellebores, broom with nigella seed heads created just the right mix for the day.

RUSTIC ELEGANT BOUQUETS FOR LEANNE & HER BRIDESMIADS

At her final consultation Leanne and I agreed on a gorgeous look for her rustic elegant bouquets. The long trailing ribbons looked wonderful with the elegant dresses  chosen for the bridesmaids.

RUSTIC ELEGANT BUTTONHOLES

David and his best man Jim set the style for the boy team and we loved their coloured jackets. Rustic elegant button holes with spray roses and a mix from the day, finished with twine fitted the bill perfectly.

OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY – WOODEN DOORS & RUSTIC CRATES

South Farm is perfect for an outdoor ceremony and we were thrilled with the finished result and were just so lucky with the weather. When Leanne made her entrance through the doors everyone was so moved. Just to let you into a little secret the doors were something Leanne had hoped for from the beginning of her planning and David organised for them to be delivered and set up for us to decorate on the day. They made a perfect frame to the ceremony area with a delicate flower garland and crates of flowers.

OUTDOOR CEREMONY – SHEPHERDS CROOKS DOWN THE AISLE

Shepherds crooks with simple posies lined the aisle and were later used to decorate the outside tables.

RUSTIC ELEGANT FLOWER CROWN FOR THE BRIDE

We talked about a flower crown and felt it would work beautifully with Leanne’s wedding dress by Claire Pettibone and the relaxed style of her day. The flower crown was Leanne’s crowning glory and one of the many  parts of her day she treasured. I just love the photos on the vespa – we added a surprise posy of flowers to the handlebars.

RUSTIC ELEGANT WEDDING CENTREPIECES IN THE BARN

The barn was full for the wedding breakfast and we used a mix of timeless silver vases and crystal vessels filled with flowers to continue the rustic elegant look. We added elegant candle sticks and a garland of flowers to the top table What a fabulous day they had and a wonderful start to their married life.
