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. This gorgeous couple chose to come back to England to share their day with family and friends from around the globe.  We enjoyed skyping with Kristin who is based in Bejing in the build up to her wedding to ensure we delivered the elegant winter wedding she desired.

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.

I am delighted to share these photos of a gorgeous December wedding at Hampton Manor.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

There is always a sense of excitement when visiting a bride on her wedding morning, last minute checks on the bridal bouquet before handing it over and of course seeing the dress hanging up in pride of place.

THE BIRCHES AT HAMPTON MANOR, CEREMONY BARN

The Birches at Hampton Manor is a graceful ceremony barn and on this December morning the sun shone through to create a beautiful warm environment for this wedding ceremony.

Large stone urns created the backdrop and were overflowing with a bold design with a mix of foliage and flowers. Colour is so important and our couple knew they wanted to have beautiful flowers and warm winter colours for their wedding.

LOW CENTREPIECES

The room looked splendid with these gorgeous sequin cloths and deep burgundy napkins with individual pace settings. The gold table numbers kept to the warm elegant look and the tables had a mix of high and low centrepieces. The  low centrepieces featured a glass hurricane vase with candle set inside a lush ring of eucalyptus foliage and a mix of roses. Extra details were added with the tea lights.

I was delighted to receive such a lovely note from Mr and Mrs Walton after their wedding.

“Karen, everything you created for our wedding day was simply stunning and far better than I ever imagined. You delivered the wedding of my dreams, it was just perfect.

From the very beginning of our planning journey, flowers were always a priority so they were very high up on our list. When I came across your previous work I just knew I had found the perfect person for the job.

We took a lot of the flowers home with us and admired them for a couple of weeks before they turned. I have pressed a couple to keep and frame them as a lovely keepsake of the day.

Thank you so much once again.
Warmest Regards,

Jen x”

Coast Bridesmaid Dress Shoot 2018 – Passion for Flowers

Deep pink and green bridesmaids bouquets with navy blue dresses

Editorial shoots are a delight to be asked to work on especially by the talented team of stylists at Rock My Wedding.

NATURAL BOUQUET OF VARYING PINK TONES

A natural organic style bouquet works beautifully with these beautiful Coast  bridesmaid’s dresses. The elegance of the navy was offset with the blush and deeper tones of pink. The layering of the colours and a mix of blooms creates interest in the bouquet whilst the snippets of foliage add a natural touch.

FIREPLACE DECORATION: WILD FLORAL GARLAND & CANDLES

The fireplace and dark walls of this bedroom at Hampton Manor create a stunning backdrop. I just love how the organic, asymetric fireplace decoration works in this setting. The light blush pink tones in the florals pop against the dark walls and bring the room to life. An abundance of candles and a stunning Coast dress created a most dreamy look, so elegant and magical.

BLUSH PINK FEATHERY BOUQUET – EXTRA LARGE

For a blush pink feathery bouquet to wow your bridesmaids choose an extra large bouquet design, here we used a mass of just three different blooms, feathery astilbe, the softest lisianthus and the lemon scented wax flower. The effect with this beautiful lace dress from Coast is so stylish.

NATURAL WILD GREEN AND WHITE BOUQUET

Bringing the outside in is a great idea and a natural wild green and white bouquet suits the style of this mint green Coast dress perfectly. A backdrop of jasmine trails, hellebore and the softest foliage stems frame this shot beautifully.

Autumn Wedding Hampton Manor: Organic Natural Style Wedding Flowers

Red Vintage Wedding Car Autumn Wedding Passion for Flowers at Hampton Manor

Sarah and Adam planned the most beautiful autumn church wedding followed by a reception for family and friends at our favourite Hampton Manor. They are currently living out in Hong Kong and so we had the opportunity to meet up on their visits home as well as skype and share pinterest boards and ideas during the planning stages.

BRIDAL AND BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – AUTUMN COLOUR PALETTE

Right from the start this couple knew they wanted natural organic style flowers with lots of autumn colour. With the navy  blue two birds bridesmaids dresses, the burgundy and pink tones worked well with plenty of foliage and texture to the bouquets.

BARSTON CHURCH WEDDING

Sarah had the pleasure of walking down from her family home to the village church for the wedding service where everyone was awaiting her arrival.

TALL CENTREPIECES AT HAMPTON MANOR – AUTUMN AND ORGANIC STYLE

The natural organic style continued through to Elizabeth Court at Hampton Manor. Adam in particular loved the idea of tall centrepieces and we agreed on clear glass vases with an organic design with tall twigs, eucalyptus foliage and the softest of roses.

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.

THE CHAPEL AT COMPTON VERNEY

We were delighted to style the enchanting chapel at Compton Verney which is now available for wedding ceremonies. The white interior needs a natural look and so we choose an entrance  welcome of a mix of aged lanterns and simple decoration inside the chapel. We lined the aisle with a mix of bronze gold bottles with the softest of grasses. The main ceremony arrangements were natural and organic in style with a mix of white and green in bronze urns sat on pedestal bases.

I was asked to design a bouquet for Lizzie and her girls for her recent wedding. Helen, her Mum, of Helen Eames Photography, joined us for our meeting and I was delighted to hear that the flowers then became an important part of Lizzie’s day.

WILD AND ORGANIC PINK BOUQUETS FOR BRIDE AND HER BRIDESMAIDS

Lizzie’s dress was chosen from the lovely Sophie at CocoandKate and we felt a wild organic bouquet with touches of blush pink roses, lashing of eucalyptus and highlights of the grey pink edged echivera would be the perfect choice for this stunning bride and her bridesmaids.

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

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.

Winter styling is so much fun and we always love being asked to create beauty with Charlotte O’Shea and the team at Rock My Style. The opportunity to work with the Joules brand was so lovely as their clothing is one of our favourites. In fact I usually wear a pair of their boots in the workroom.

These images capture the beauty that was made, Charlotte has a good eye for detail and knows what she loves. Pheasant feathers being one of her favourite things, Mabel was the most perfect model and I have fallen in love with these images captured from the day.

A country house needs a country styled wreath on the door and this one with hydrangea, eucalyptus, alliums and the signature pheasant feathers was a pleasure to make.

HOW TO MAKE A CHRISTMAS STAIRCASE GARLAND

A Christmas garland is a great welcome to any home. Charlotte was keen to learn and we found a colour combination which she loved. Warm dusky pink hydrangea, softest astrantia, alliums and masses of foliage to create a lush, relaxed garland.

  1. For the base an oasis netted garland lightly soaked in water.
  2. Add foliage throughout the design for a natural look, we used 3 types of eucalyptus.
  3.  Add key blooms we used hydrangea heads, alliums and astrantia.
  4. Then add extra flourishes of decoration to suit your style Charlotte loved the addition of the pheasant feathers for a country look.
  5. Finally hang your garland in pride of place on your staircase with cable ties and check how everything looks.

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. The choice of wedding bouquet is one of the key decisions for any wedding as the bouquet is one of the most photographed pieces of the day.

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.
