WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – VINTAGE GLAMOUR

wroxall abbey wedding flowers vintage glamour candelabra with pearls centrepiece

Since our early days at Passion for Flowers we have enjoyed creating Wroxall Abbey wedding flowers in the Mansion House, marquee and Wren’s Cathedral. Sam and Mike asked us to help them create a perfect look for their vintage glamour wedding at Wroxall Abbey.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Sam was the most beautiful relaxed bride and was very happy to leave everything in our hands. She had a lovely vision for the day and was open to all the ideas and extra touches we presented and asked for our advice on lots of the aspects of her wedding. At one point I fondly recall her saying ‘but you are the wedding’. As a couple they were a joy to work with and we loved our times liaising and chatting over details.

The dusky pink rose bouquets were soft and spring like finished with lace to perfectly suit the style of the soft mint green bridesmaids’ dresses. Touches of variegated pittosporum picked up the pastel tone of the fabric. Sam’s rose bouquet finished her look for the day with lace trimmed cathedral veil and wonderful wedding dress.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – CHURCH FLOWERS

Wroxall Abbey has a wonderful church just a short walk from the Mansion House and church flowers always include decoration of the wooden screen. Roses were threaded through the soft foliage garland to create a romantic backdrop for the service.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – VINTAGE GLAMOUR CENTREPIECES

Sam and Mike wanted us to create a vintage glamour look to their centrepieces and we agreed on a mix of centrepieces, stunning candelabra festooned with flowers and soft foliage finished with trailing pearls, raised silver cake stands with pretty blooms, delicate three tier crystal cake stands trimmed with lace and pearls and the soft glow of votives and candles.

WINDOW SHUTTER TABLE PLAN

Mike loves comics and this fun couple chose to name their tables after characters including Spider Man and Batman for the top table. We displayed the stationery on our window shutter table plan making it easy for guests to find their seats. I loved seeing the newly married Dr and Dr McFarlane on their wedding day.

WROXALL ABBEY WEDDING FLOWERS – HANGING BOTTLES

Outside the church the ancient yew tree is the perfect place to let some light and interest into the churchyard. Soft vintage rose heads hanging in apothecary bottles look great and make the churchyard seem brighter and more welcoming.

Sam’s mum was keen on us adding in some bunting which we found in lovely pastel shades to decorate the entrance to the marquee. It even had garlands of pearls on the design so just worked so well for this gorgeous wedding.

A VINTAGE SUITCASE FILLED WITH CARDS

A vintage suitcase was added to the Garden Room at Wroxall Abbey for guests to add their cards and add messages to their photo guest book.

WEDDING CAKE FLOWERS

The cake was a highlight to the day. We liaised with the team at Fiona Cairns, makers of the royal wedding cake that Kate and William enjoyed, to ensure the flowers we created were fit for a right royal cake.

SUMMER RUSTIC WEDDING FLOWERS AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – WHITE PEONIES, BLUSH PINK ROSES, DAHLIAS & ASTILBE

We love creating rustic wedding flowers at Shustoke Farm Barns. The style of Shustoke perfectly fits with rustic styling her we used an abundance of  seasonal flowers, tree slices and casual arrangements to bring the venue to life.

 

BRIDAL BOUQUET – WHITE PEONIES, BLUSH PINK PEONIES, ROSES, DAHLIAS & ASTILBE

We initially discussed plans by phone and email with Yasmin and were thrilled when we finally met her with Paul to finalise details. At our consultation we always ask to see a photo of the wedding gown to gauge the style of wedding and the flowers that would be appropriate (don’t worry we always ask the groom to leave the room at this point). Yasmin’s gown was just beautiful with touches of gold and needed a romantic fluffy bouquet. We decided on a lush mix of  white and blush pink peonies which are in full bloom in July, bombastic roses, wizard of oz dahlias and feathery astilbe.

SUMMER RUSTIC WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

The ceremony table at Shustoke Farm Barns is a stunning piece of wood and looks best with simple decoration. A mix of our glass bottles and jars created just the look with summer rustic ceremony flowers as well as the bridal bouquet on the table.

SUMMER RUSTIC BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS WITH PASTEL DRESSES

The six bridesmaids had smaller versions of the bridal bouquet complete with peonies in pinks and whites they looked just wonderful with their pastel dresses. If you chose different pastel tones for the dresses it is lovely to link your maids by choosing the same bouquet for all of them.

 FEATURE TABLES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FAMILY PHOTOS, GIFTS & CARDS

As your guests arrive at Shustoke Farm Barns there are two great feature tables to display family photos, and leave space for gifts and cards. Don’t forget to add some flowers to this area to set the mood for your wedding day. The LOVE mugs were a great find and looked simply stunning on the day with some blooms in them and are something now treasured by the bride and groom.

WOODEN CRATES WITH RUSTIC SUMMER FLOWERS

Wooden crates with rustic summer flowers create just the right ambience for this rustic setting. Filled here with large hydrangeas, chrysanthemum blooms, olive foliage, roses and astilbe. A great a great mix for a summer wedding.

CENTREPIECES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARS – GLASS BOTTLES ON TREE SLICES

Yasmin loved her tree slices and glass bottles for the centrepieces. We used a mixture of different sized bottle and jars filled with flowers and herbs to create a rustic look. The tree slices add some height to the tables without blocking anyone’s view.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ RELAXED RUSTIC WEDDING WITH HANGING GLOBES

bride and groom field

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS

We love creating Cripps Barn wedding flowers especially hanging globes. It is always a pleasure to travel down to the Cotswolds and create wedding flowers for our couples tying the knot at Cripps Barn. Claire and Ben booked us more than a year before their wedding after they had seen us setting up at Cripps Barn. They were looking for a relaxed rustic wedding celebration with family and friends. Ben is a true romantic and I loved the pearls he had chosen for Claire. The boys were at Cripps the morning of the wedding adding some hand made touches while the girls finished getting ready. Don’t you just love the directional signs lovingly made by Claire’s Dad. All photography by Jen Marino Photography.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BOUQUETS

Claire and her bridesmaids had wonderful dresses and needed simple just picked flowers to complete their look. We worked with a white and green palette with highlights of purple and blue adding touches of lavender and veronica in the bridal just picked bouquet. To keep the bouquets rustic in style they were finished with hessian.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ RUSTIC BUTTON HOLES WITH TWINE

Rustic button holes with twine suited this rustic style wedding and its setting at Cripps Barn. The button holes were all a little different and finished with twine. Name tags are great to help with handing out the button holes on the wedding day.

At Cripps Barn you can choose to have your ceremony in the wonderful ceremony barn which is a simply stunning way to tie the knot. Jars of just picked flowers on the ceremony table and huge just picked hanging globes are all that is needed to complete the look. The beauty of the hanging globes can be enjoyed later in the day for the evening celebrations. The young flower girls pomanders also looked perfect hanging as pew ends from their chairs.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ HANGING FLOWER GLOBES

The hanging flower globes are a ‘must have’ at Cripps Barn as they are enjoyed by guests throughout the day and are the last thing seen at the end of the evening. Claire and Ben had the hanging flower globes high up on their list of priorities as they had seen ones we had created for previous weddings. For a rustic wedding we combined lots of fresh scented eucalyptus and dill, dreamy gypsophila and blousy hydrangeas.

One of the lovely comments from our happy couple after the wedding was that the globes smelled really amazing.

WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING

circus themed wedding

At Passion for Flowers we love Warwickshire weddings and we were more than delighted when Ben Hanlin (you may know him from Tricked) and Briony Davies asked us to help them style and create the flowers for their circus themed wedding. We worked closely with Ben and Bri on pinterest and circus themed inspiration and what came together on the day was just amazing and beautifully captured by Jo Hastings Photography.

WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – BRIDAL BOUQUET

We created a beautiful scented bridal bouquet for Briony with blousy peonies, roses and highlights of scabious seed heads and Billy Balls perfect for the white and yellow wedding flowers to suit her day.

WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The bridesmaids looked stunning in their nude blush dresses and carried white and yellow wedding flowers with peonies, roses and Billy Balls, finished with ivory ribbon. The wedding was in Tanworth in Arden and the bridal party walked across The Green to the country church in glorious sunshine.

YELLOW BUTTON HOLES

How cool does Ben look with his yellow button hole with Billy Balls, scabious seed heads and touches of eucalyptus. Love the subtle yellow tie.

CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS – RUSTIC CRATES & HEART PEW ENDS

Country churches always look best with country and rustic touches. Rustic crates overflowing with blousy hydrangea, achillea, Billy Balls and eucalyptus welcomed guests to the church and simple hand tied bunches of flowers were added to the heart pew ends. That’s all a country church needs along with a basket brimming with petals to scatter. After the service everyone gathered for drinks on The Green before waving Ben and Briony off in their gorgeous car.

CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING MARQUEE

When we first met and the circus themed wedding was muted I just knew it would be fun. The colours of yellow and white continued from the signs to the ribbons flying in the breeze.

CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING CENTREPIECES – CANDELABRA, GIN BOTTLES & VINTAGE TINS

Briony had collected some fun circus themed containers and animals. We raided our props store to find other items to add to the tables. The aim was to have every table a little bit different with a range of vases and vessels. I love how the candelabra, gin bottles, vintage tins and books came together to create a relaxed fun filled day with the yellow and white flowers finishing the look.

CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING IDEAS

If you are planning a circus themed wedding then how about this amazing Joined at The Hip idea brilliant for photos and fun. Outside the marquee guests had the chance to play on the Coconut Shy, sit in the giant Deckchair and generally enjoy this fun filled day. Did I say it was the hottest day of the year and the sun shone all day on the new Mr and Mrs Hanlin.
