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.

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.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUET & FLOWER ARCH – SPRING FLOWERS

green foliage whimsical delicate floral garland archway wedding

As you may be aware we have recently changed to a new blog (when we relaunched our website) this means many of our older but still very popular blog posts are in our archives. If you haven’t had time to scroll through our archives don’t worry, from time to time we repost the most popular blog posts on here for you to see.

This post is filled with spring inspiration, with a blush pink wedding bouquet and flower arch. The delicate blush pink florals used in the garland and bouquet would look stunning  and could be incorporated into your wedding if you are getting married in the spring.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING INSPIRATION

blush pink wedding bouquet white spring bridal bouquet posy foliage garland

As part of the love inspired shoot for Rock My Wedding back in January we created a delicate archway garland to frame the bride, we kept the foliage and flowers whimsical wispy and delicate to complement the beautiful lace wedding dress. We used delicate foliage including pieris with spring catkins as a base for the garland and then wired in the softest pale pink tulips, lisianthus and scented narcissus.

BLUSH PINK WEDDING BOUQUET & FLOWER ARCH

The small delicate blush pink bridal bouquet posy was a spring mix of narcissi, ranunculus, palest blush pink lisianthus and snippets of delicate blush pink broom hand tied with textured ribbon with a blush pink satin overlay, finished with a bow. This mix is perfect for a blush pink spring wedding.

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.

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.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

flower crowns weddings

Are you wondering how you will style your hair on your wedding day? Have you thought of wearing a flower crown? Many of our brides love wearing a circlet of fresh flowers in their hair on their wedding day, whether they wear it for the whole day or just after the ceremony for a more relaxed look. Today we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite flower crowns we have made for our brides as well as some inspiration from Pinterest.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

Caroline looked stunning in her large mixed coloured flower crown, her wedding colours tied into her watercolour theme so we used a mix of roses in pinky tones and blue hydrangeas for a full look.

Amy was married on New Years Eve, she wore a  flower crown made from the flowers of the day. For her white, gold and grey colour palette we used white roses in varying sizes, eucalyptus (some of it sprayed gold), hydrangeas and brunia. Amy wore her flower crown during the evening when the wedding turned into a New Years Eve party.

Victoria wore her flower crown after her wedding ceremony for a walk in the woods at Hampton Manor, we think she looked gorgeous in her peach and cream rose flower crown.

Leanne loved her flower crown, it suited her natural rustic wedding perfectly. We made a delicate flower circlet using very soft muted tones including wax flower for texture, Quicksand roses, bombastic roses and a touch of pittosporum.

Young bridesmaids and flower girls look especially cute when they wear flower crowns and hair flowers. Sometimes they prefer to wear something in their hair than hold a bouquet all through the day. This pretty little girl wore a gypsophila flower crown.

For this Indian wedding the young bridesmaids wore bright orange, yellow and red flower crowns to tie in with their orange bridesmaids dresses. Don’t they look adorable?

Jenny and Matt tied the knot at Packington Moor where we love creating beautiful flowers for our Passion for Flowers couples.

PACKINGTON MOOR WEDDING

Summer weddings and bunting go hand in hand, particularly at the lovely Packington Moor, the gorgeous courtyard was decorated with bunting and personalised wedding signs to create a warm welcome to the wedding guests.

PACKINGTON MOOR WEDDING CEREMONY – ARCH

The rustic barn at Packington Moor is a wonderful place for a wedding ceremony and the arch creates a great focal point. We added a rustic mix of eucalyptus, dreamy gypsophila and blousy hydrangeas, soft roses with lisianthus.

ROSES AND HYDRANGEAS IN RUSTIC WOODEN CRATES AT PACKINGTON MOOR

We always recommend that wedding flowers and decorations tie in with the setting of the venue so rustic wooden crates are just perfect for Packington Moor. We filled the rustic wooden crates with roses and hydrangeas.

PACKINGTON MOOR WEDDING RECEPTION – BUNTING, TREE SLICES & HESSIAN

The wedding reception was decorated with more bunting and the tables decorated with hessian and tree slices. Just Married bunting was strung along the top table with bark vases filled with flowers. The stationery was created by a dear wedding industry friend of ours Lucy Ledger and just fitted perfectly with the flowers and decoration and the cake by another of our wedding industry friends the talented Tracy of Cotton and Crumbs. We always love it when we work with other creative talents to bring a wedding day to life.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FLOWER CROWNS + HANGING GLOBES

Caroline and Rob tied the knot at Shustsoke Farm Barns on 1 August surrounded by family and friends. Caroline enjoyed the planning of her summer wedding and had a great eye for colour, the one thing she was certain of was she wanted to wear a flower crown for her wedding cermeony and hanging globes in the barn.

FLOWER CROWN – PINK, BLUE & GREEN HYDRANGEAS & ROSES

At our first meeting Caroline arrived with a gorgeous water colour board with inspiration for her day, tones of pinks, blues and greens. The flower crown we designed was very blousy and suited her curls on the day with a mix of pink, blue and green hydrangea with Sweet Avalanche and Ocean song roses. When the flowers were delivered in the morning the squeals of delight were wonderful to hear. The happiness captured in these photos at the start of the day continued throughout the day. What a beautiful relaxed and happy wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – CEREMONY FLOWERS

The ceremony barn was filled with flowers, Rob had made a rustic wooden planter for us to fill with blooms from the day – hydrangeas, feathery astilbe, eucalyptus and roses with moss to edge. Together with the large hanging flower globes filled with a mix of hydrangeas and eucalyptus the wooden planter gave just the look Caroline and Rob had hoped for. I just love the rustic tree slice ring box.

The boys had a mix of rustic styled button holes with hydrangea and eucalyptus finished with twine with a billy button for the youngest. How cute is his Ring Security shirt!

BRIDAL & BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – BRIGHT SUMMER FLOWERS

Caroline brought one of the dresses over to show me so we could finalise colours for the bouquets and we had great fun selecting such lovely bright summer flowers in colours of pink, green, lilac and blue. The long lace trailing ribbons for the bridesmaids added a good contrast to their floral dresses and finished off the look. The lace was also used to trail from Caroline’s flower crown. The bride herself carried a large bouquet of mixed hydrangeas and roses to offset her flower crown. Caroline bought cream jugs and attached personal tags for each of her maids.

FLOWER GARLAND AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

As guests and finally the bridal party arrived at Shustoke Famr Barns they were greeted by a rustic country style flower garland hanging above the oak doors to the barn. Once inside everyone  was greeted with a wonderfully hand crafted table plan and so many other personal touches.

TOP TABLE FLOWERS IN A RUSTIC CRATE – SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

The top table was the centre of attention for the meal and speeches with the rustic crate  handcrafted with love by Rob taking centre stage. The crate was over a metre in length and looked as if it was made for the barn.

PASTEL TONED FLOWERS FOR THE TABLES – WATER COLOUR THEME

Caroline had a water colour theme to her tables with handmade table numbers, beautifully hand dyed cloths in soft pastel tones on to which we added a mix of organic bottles and vases simply filled with just the right pastel toned blooms.

HANGING FLOWER GLOBES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

Caroline had seen photos of one of our previous barn weddings and just knew she wanted large flower globes to be part of her day. The hanging globes are a great treat for us to create and we just love how they can transform this large space. If you are having your ceremony at the barn, followed by the meal and then the evening the hanging globes can be enjoyed throughout the day and add that extra WOW factor to your day.

WEDDING CAKE ON A TREE SLICE WITH FLOWERS

The wedding cake just needed simple blooms to add a touch of colour and be set on a rustic tree slice. We love the bit of whimsy with the beetle and the ladybird.

It is over a year since we first designed wedding flowers for Shustoke Farm Barns and we just love returning time after time as it gives us the opportunity to style it differently for each and every wedding. Our style is always in keeping with the natural look and feel of this wonderful wedding venue.

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

shustoke farm barns wedding flowers passion for flowers rustic vintage wooden crates with wild flowers

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

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.

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.

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.
