Asymmetric Deconstructed Arches – Learning with Sabine Darrall

Wedding styles are always evolving and we have been creating deconstructed arches for a number of our weddings over the last year or so. To learn a few more tricks of the trade especially creating with no floral foam I enjoyed a couple of days with Sabine Darrall earlier this year. These images show the beauty we can create. Personally, I love the natural green and white of the first image perfect for a foliage-filled wedding.

I just love this romantic look with the combination of the softest blush pink roses, scented lilac , amelanchier and blousy hydrangeas perfect for a spring wedding.

Winter Wedding at Hampton Manor – Foliage & Candles

Wild foliage winter wedding bouquets Passion for Flowers

Last winter we were lucky enough to be involved in this stunning winter wedding at Hampton Manor. We were thrilled to see it featured recently on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings Blog too. Hannah and Adam were married late November so opted for an enchanted forest winter wedding.

Enchanted Forest Winter Ceremony Backdrop

Hannah’s large wild bouquet was predominantly foliage with touches of deep red and featured protea and trailing ribbons. Candles in glass cylinders lined the aisle and we created a backdrop to frame the couple as they said their I Do’s.

Long Guest Tables Winter Wedding Styling

Within Elizabeth’s Court we added touches of floral decor all around. We decorated the bespoke table plan and provided gold vases for the bouquets to sit in during the meal to create extra floral decorations. We laid foliage down the length of the tables with candles spread out for a romantic wintery glow.

Low Centrepieces – Footed Bowls Along Long Tables

Elegant footed bowl wedding centrepieces by Passion for Flowers Hampton Manor wedding florist

Not every centrepice has to be tall, in fact more and more of our couples are opting for low centrepieces. Low doesn’t mean any less WOW, footed bowls can look stunning on tables and I often design them with flowers cascading over the brim for a really full look.

At Hampton Manor I recently showed some spring designs in footed bowls. I displayed the same designs on both the bare wooden tables and clothed tables, deciding whether or not you have linen on your tables can really transform the look of the room so this is a great way to see how the same centrepiece can look different simply based on the linen and chairs.

Low Footed Bowls – A Classic Look

For the more traditional, classic look I placed 3 low centrepieces down the length of the table. Bronze candlesticks, vases and tealight holders filled in the spaces between the footed bowls for an elegant look. Hampton Manor had clothed the tables and used their Chiavari chairs for a more classic look.

Low Footed Bowls – A Rustic / Industrial Look

Here I have used the same design footed bowls, candlesticks and bronze vases but this time they are displayed on Hampton Manor’s new wooden tables and leather chairs. You can see how the bare tables really transform the look for a more rustic/industrial vibe. Both options are available at Hampton Manor.

Co-ordinating Top Table Design

To co-ordinate the room the top table had one low footed bowl in the centre with loose foliage laid along the length of the table as well as bronze candlesticks and tealights.

Full Length Table Garlands – Long Table Centrepieces

Long tables wedding flower garlands rustic barn wedding ideas

If you have chosen long guest tables you just can’t beat the classic look of a garland flowing the entire length of the table. I created these garlands for Hampton Manor’s recent wedding fair on their new wooden tables, which I just love.

For this design I opted for no floral foam, using a mix of foliage, roses, ranunculus and spring blooms down the length of the table. Candlesticks were entwined into the design and to finish off the wooden tables I added a natural cotton table runner and brass name place settings. If you love this idea but have chosen round tables we could still incorporate this into your table design.

Epic Wedding Backdrop Arch set behind Top Table – Wild Foliage

Hampton Manor new wooden tables and brown leather chairs

My new favourite backdrop! I have recently invested in a new frame which lets me create these epic backdrops for wedding venues. It’s first outing was at Hampton Manor wedding fair where I used it as a backdrop to the top table, I used mainly foliage for this design with touches of roses and blossom. This design was completely foam free and therefore much kinder to thee environment.

This idea could also be used as a ceremony backdrop or could be set at the entrance to your wedding venue or behind you wedding cake. The frame is pretty flexible too so can be made to the size you require, it’s maximum height is 10′ and starts at 6′ and the maximum width is 12′.

Stunning Long Table Garlands with Hanging Ring – Learning with Sabine Darrall

Long top table or guest table garland of flowers Passion for Flowers Karen Morgan

Garlands extending along a guest or top table are a firm favourite at weddings and provide a relaxed environment for any wedding celebration. Picking up tips on making our designs foam free and more eco-friendly has been top of my list this year and so I was delighted to join other talented florists to spend a couple of days creating and learning with Sabine Darrall.

At many of our barn venues or in marquees we have the opportunity to create stunning hanging decorations for our wedding couples. Again we now aim to make these foam free and more eco-friendly. The freshest of gathered foliages is always a good place to start and using flowers that will last through the wedding day. We usually hang these arrangements on the day of the wedding.

Free Form Urn Designs – Pink Peach & Green

Karen Morgan Passion for Flowers urn floral designs

Most of our wedding work includes a statement urn or two, either for the church or ceremony, close to a top table or as a feature by a staircase. This style of arrangement is often the first look at your wedding and is a beautiful piece to be photographed by or enjoyed by guests.  I loved creating this free form urn design using no floral foam and keeping our weddings more eco-friendly.  This natural mix was expertly captured for me by the talented Sabine Darrall whose courses I would highly recommend.

Andrea and Mitch were living out in New York when they contacted us about creating the flowers for their summer wedding at Sudeley Castle. We had initial skype exchanges and met when the bride traveled over to the UK. We loved working with Andrea to create natural just picked flowers for her wedding in an English Castle. As you can imagine this historic venue was much admired by the visitors from The States.

ORGANIC FREEFORM DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Whilst the bridesmaids carried bouquets with a mix of dusky pink tones the bridal  bouquet had a more organic freeform design with plenty of trailing jasmine, queen anne’s lace, creamy peonies, wax flower, delicate astilbe and roses.

DUSKY PINK ROSE, ASTILBE, WAX FLOWER & JASMINE – HEAVENLY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The brides dress was  Rivini and suited the organic style of flowers we had selected together. The bridesmaids carried heavenly bouquets of dusky pink rose, astilbe, deep toned astrantia,wax flower and scented jasmine. Fabric from the girls dresses loosely wrapped around the stems of all the bouquets brought the look together.

GYPSOPHILA GARLANDS & PEW ENDS FOR CHURCH

Andrea requested dreamy garlands of white flowers and simple bunches of gypsophila for the pew ends. The chapel with its history and wonderful workmanship does not suit over embellishing and this style of decor created just the candlelit style the couple hoped for.

Chelsea is a dream, an amazing bride with an infectious and exuberant personality. We first met at the National Wedding Show and enjoyed skype meetings and wedding consultations to achieve the WOW look she was after for her church wedding to Carl followed by a stunning reception at Belvoir Castle.

BOUQUETS

The bridal bouquet was a lush hand tie with a mix of protea, feathery astilbe and roses. Her girls carried a bouquet of astilbe, so gorgeous on its own.

BELVOIR CASTLE WEDDING FLOWERS – LUXE GOLD CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES

So we always love a lavish reception and Belvoir Castle sat high on the hill is a treasure of a venue for an exclusive wedding. The tables were a mass of gold and flowers with a luxe gold candelabra surrounded by a sea of blooms. Once the candles were lit the venue shimmered and shone. Linen, gold cutlery, glasses and charger plates enhanced the look. The dessert table was expertly created by Cotton and Crumbs, a great favourite of ours.
