Hampton Manor is the most elegant of settings for a wedding and we always love the opportunity to dress Elizabeth’s Court. The spring Wedding Fair gave us the chance to show our tall bronze centrepieces. Thank you to all who visited and to Jonny Barratt for his amazing images.
TALL BRONZE WEDDING CENTREPIECE
A tall wedding centrepiece always has a WOW factor and these bronze stands look elegant on a table in the manor. Lush foliage and large Mejer roses in softest peach, ivory with spray roses add a touch of glam to the tall bronze arrangement. Add in posy vases, candlesticks and tealights to complete the look.
GROUPING OF BRONZE VASES FOR WEDDING CENTREPIECES
As a more relaxed look select a grouping of bronze vases with simple but stunning blooms, here roses mixed with scented jasmine worked a treat. Make sure to add in glass and bronze candlesticks for that extra touch.
TOP TABLE FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR
The wooden butchers block can be used for a small top table. Here we added luxe bronze vases, bronze candlesticks and wooden tree tea lights for a rustic twist to the bronze look. The spring ranunculus are such natural beauties and one of our favourite flowers.
PASSION FOR FLOWERS STAND – ALL PROPS AVAILABLE TO HIRE
We have a new hire guide available to all. The guide shows how to use our props and features a wealth of looks. Our studio in Berkswell houses our props and we are happy to show you the collection when having a consultation. We also had to sneak in the recently published Rock My Wedding book featuring some of our flowers and bouquets as well as our props. Happy days…
WOODLAND SETTING – TREE STUMPS, LANTERNS, FERNS
Our display at the show included a rustic woodland setting with mix of tree stumps, an abundance of ferns and helebores, lanterns and cylinder vases. This display would make a wonderful setting for a ceremony, down the aisle or at the base of a table.
Iscoyd Park is a pleasure to work at for an elegant wedding. We were thrilled to create flowers for this epic 2 day wedding at Iscoyd Park for Asia and Jason.
For an elegant wedding bouquet you just cant beat a lush trailing or cascading bouquet with delicious scented David Austin roses, cascading foliage,an opulent mix of textures all topped off with an elegant bridal gown and cathedral length veil.
Elegant bridesmaids bouquets coordinated with the bridal bouquet, soft shaped hand tied bouquets with succulents and an abundance of bountiful blooms and texture. The cute flower girls carried posies with cafe au lait dahlia and roses finished with gold ribbon and flower crowns for the youngest. Not to forget an elegant wrist corsage for Mother of the Bride.
This wedding at Iscoyd Park oozed style and charm. I just love the groom’s button hole and cool moment captured by the flower wall backdrop.
WEDDING CEREMONY – ISCOYD PARK
This was day 2 of the wedding clebrations and Asia looked a dream as she walked down the aisle. Lush posies with English country garden flowers decorated the chairs for this gorgeous couple.

Iscoyd Park is the perfect setting for an elegant,romantic wedding with bags of style. Crystal glass centrepieces dripping with flowers, gold candle sticks, glasses and charger plates complemented the look.
TOP TABLE DECOR – ISCOYD PARK
The top table continued an elegant look but allowed all guests to see the radiant couple. Rococo style gold candlesticks and crystal vase arrangements bedecked with flowers oozed charm and elegance.
OUTDOOR SWING – ISCOYD PARK
The gardens at Iscoyd Park are a must for gorgeous informal shots, I love the swing decorated with a trail of flowers and foliage from the day. Happiness is a swing and a smile.
All weddings need a touch of whimsy and fun, this cool flower wall photo booth backdrop was enjoyed by guests all through the day. A moss backing with a design of roses, succulents and trailing amaranthus was also the romantic backdrop for the happy couple .A labour of love to create and a WOW factor for all the guests.
Hampton Manor is our closest venue, just a stone’s throw from our studio in Berswell and we always love a Hampton Manor wedding.

Cream rose bridal bouquets epitomise an elegant bride and with avalanche roses and touches of delicate astilbe and touches of grey dusty miller they add a little twist to the day.
BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS IN CRYSTAL VASES – ELEGANT WEDDING FLOWERS
A great idea for a gift for bridesmaids is to present their bouquets in beautiful crystal vases finished with a small photo frame with a photo of the bride with their besties. A lovely keepsake from the wedding day.
CREAM ROSE BUTTON HOLES ON SILVER TRAYS
Elegant cream rose button holes look good presented on silver trays for the boys to hand out.

The bridal bouquet was designed with a mix of gorgeous scented blooms including Juliet and Darcy roses,eucalyptus foliage, peach hypericum, stocks, rice flower and the softest kangaroo paw, finished with gold trailing ribbon. A highlight on our wedding day is seeing the bride’s excitement when she first sets eyes on her bouquet.
The bridesmaids bouquets had a lighter touch with Kiera roses perfect with their champagne toned gowns.
Andrew and the boys sported elegant rose button holes.
KNOWSLEY HALL WEDDING CEREMONY
The Stucco Ballroom with its elegant cornices and columns gives a feeling of opulence to a Knowsley Hall wedding ceremony. Elegant chair backs for the bride and groom and a rich and full garland for the ceremony table filled with scented roses perfected the table.

The grounds at Knowsley Hall are simply stunning and our couple were so lucky with the weather for their October wedding. These images show their joy and radiance on this most important of days with family and friends.
KNOWSLEY HALL WEDDING RECEPTION – CENTREPIECES
The State Dining room at Knowsley Hall makes you catch your breath as you enter, it is grandeur at is best with a warm feeling with heavy drapes and family portraits. For a luxe look sequin cloths covered the tables to add to the gold of the day, with a mix of candlesticks, vases and votives in gold to enhance the room. Low centrepieces enabled the guests to enjoy the room and have an excellent view of the top table.
The top table was dressed with elegant rococo candlesticks, luxe vases and votives with shimmering cloths and elegant florals for a rich, opulent look.
LUXE DESSERT TABLE
Guests enjoyed a luxe dessert table with sweet treats.
SPARKLER SEND OFF
The send off with sparklers ended the night on a high.

Rachel and Nick were married at Compton Verney in September. We met when Rachel was recommended to us by the award winning venue team. Rachel came to us with an idea of colours and an inspiration image and left the rest to us. As we love creating flowers at Compton Verney and decorating this stunning venue they were in safe hands.
Chris Barber has captured their day perfectly for us to share with you.
HYDRANGEA AND ROSE BOUQUETS AT COMPTON VERNEY
A soft mix of pinks, peaches and a hint of deeper tones were used in the hydrangea and rose bouquets.

WEDDING CAKE FLOWERS – ROSES, BERRIES AND EUCALYPTUS
Just before we left the venue we added the flowers and decoration to the wedding cake in keeping with the look and feel of the day.
Thank you Rachel and Nick for your lovely comment ‘The flowers looked so beautiful and were so much more than we could have ever imagined’
We love Hampton Manor weddings and were delighted to have free rein to decorate the sumptuous Elizabeth’s Court for the autumn wedding fair. We enjoyed meeting a number of wedding couples and showing them how they could decorate the venue to suit their wedding style and season.
Since then we have been busy meeting with couples at our studio at Home Farm in Berkswell where we have an ever expanding range of vases, vessels and large scale props to make your wedding day your own.
TOP TABLE GARLANDS
At your wedding reception all eyes are on the top table so make a statement with your florals as these will be captured in your photos of the speeches on the day. We love decorating the Butchers Block table with an abundance of mixed foliage with flowers and added textures. For this look we added roses, brunia and air plants for great texture. Elegant silver candlesticks complete the look.
White, grey and green and a perfect choice for an elegant wedding whatever the season for a timeless look. For a spring take on this we would include some white tulips and ranunulus in the design. There is always a choice of flower to add to create a great look with the season and your wedding colours in mind.
Add interest to the place settings with a pocketful of delicate astrantia nestled in the napkin. Posy vases by the place settings also add a welcome personal touch.
ELEGANT TALL BRONZE VASE CENTREPIECES – PEACH ROSES WHITE HYDRANGEAS
Metallics are still hot news and look oh so stunning at the Manor, this look is perfect for an overstated elegant look with a bit of glitz and glamour. See how the tall bronze vases goes so well with the stunning chandelier in the room. We always look to tie in your wedding decor with the room and your bespoke theme. Peach roses and cream hydrangea brought out the warmth to this look.
Team with gold and bronze lower vases running along the table and add gold rimmed glasses for an elegant look. The glass charger plates keep this fresh and contemporary.
Photo frames in opulent metallic finish add a finishing touch to the tablescape. If using the sprig table layout at Hampton Manor make sure you have interest running along the table, use candles and lanterns to add to the romance.
If you are planning a room layout with round tables you could consider using a mix of different centrepieces around the room. Perhaps a stunning tall bronze vase on a central table and lanterns surrounded by gorgeous blooms on others, with an abundant mix of gold and bronze vases on another. By keeping to the same blooms the look remains cohesive and easy on the eye but becomes a talking point amongst your guests.
STONE URN CENTREPIECS BRONZE CANDLESTICKS AND BOTTLES
Rustic woodland settings work so well at Hampton Manor and can be started with the ceremony in The Birches. The stone vases and urns create great centrepieces and bring a sense of naturalness to the tables. The stone in the courtyard was our inspiration for this look. For a winter wedding we have included touches of grey brunia and eucalyptus and added bronze candelsticks and bronze bottles with bloooms along the table.
For the place settings a slate place card holder looks just right with torn edge paper and a calligraphy name card. Its the little details that take your wedding from great to amazing.
Add texture with a luxe linen grey runner to bring the table to life and glass charger plates to perfect the look.
ELEGANT TALL GLASS VASES – PEACH AND CREAM ROSES
We love elegant tall glass vases and wanted to show one of our latest designs at Hampton Manor. This elevated design could form a centrepiece to a long table design with a mix of smaller glass vases and glass candlesticks running along the table. They can also be used to add drama to the Parlour for exclusive use weddings or to create a stunning top table design.
Details for this design included our salt cellar place names with a snippet of waxfower set on a glass charger plate. The elegance continues with the glass candle sticks and glass footed vases.
If you have been inspired and are still looking for a florist and stylist for your Hampton Manor Wedding do get in touch we would love to start talking weddings. Our advice is ‘Make sure you choose a florist whose style you love’
We just love it when a bride requests peonies and they are in season. These fluffy pink peonies were just perfect for a summer wedding at Hampton Manor.

HYDRANGEA AND PEONY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The bridesmaids carried beautiful hydrangea and peony bouquets.
ROSE BUTTON HOLES AND CORSAGES
The rose button holes and corsages had wax flower, astilbe or jasmine as a finishing touch. Adding name tags to the button holes and corsages makes light work of the handing out of these beauties at the wedding.

When we received an invitation to travel down to the elegant Coombe Lodge to create wedding flowers we were happy to say yes. A new venue to us is always a great opportunity for a site visit to check out the place to see what will work with the couples chosen venue. We just loved creating flowers and styling for Noreen and Tom on this magical day with their family and friends.
BOUQUETS AT COOMBE LODGE – PEACH, BLUSH PINK AND CREAM
The bouquets were a mix of peach, blush pink and cream blooms for an elegant summer look.
OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY AT COOMBE LODGE
The gardens at Coombe Lodge make a perfect setting for an outdoor ceremony. Delicate confetti petals were handed out to the guests for the confetti moment.
LARGE METALLIC URNS AND FLOWERS DOWN THE AISLE
The dramatic setting for the ceremony suited large metallic urns overflowing with lush florals and flowers set out to frame the aisle.
CENTREPIECES AT COOMBE LODGE – GOLD CANDELABRA
Coombe Lodge has a warm feel to the place and the gold candelabra used for the centrepieaces echoed the decor in the light fittings and around the room.
The image of the Noreen and her girls so beautifully captured in front of the stunning rhododendrons is just gorgeous. Mother Nature was certainly at work at Coombe Lodge. Congratulations again to Noreen and Tom x
For an elegant winter wedding there is no better place than Hampton Manor. The team at the Manor are the perfect hosts and we are thrilled to be asked by couples to decorate their weddings with flowers and styling suggestions. Amy and James were married last December in the Birches followed by drinks and canapes in the The Manor and partied with their families and guests in grand style through to the early hours.
BRIDAL BOUQUETS – BLUSH PINK ROSES & DUSTY MILLER
The grey of the dusty miller added just a touch of winter whimsy to the blush bouquets.The fur capes for the girls kept them cosy and warm during the ceremony just the thing for a elegant winter wedding.

An elegant floral arch was the backdrop to the ceremony in The Birches, the eucalyptus was also included in the chair backs adding a wintery scent to the room.
ELEGANT CENTERPIECES AT HAMPTON MANOR – SILVER CANDELABRA WITH BLUSH PINK ROSES TRAILING DESIGN
Candelabra are oh so elegant especially when decorated with a full trailing design including a lush mix of blush pink roses. We added highlights of grey brunia combined with the eucalyptus for a wintry touch to the decor. The head table featured a tall silver candelabra with an abundance of blush roses and the softest of blooms teamed with vases of scented blooms, mercury tea lights and silver candlesticks. The elegant mirror table plan had a luxe garland of blooms to decorate.
FLOWER PRESERVATION GIFT – PAPER WEIGHT
I love this idea for preserving your wedding bouquet. Amy’s bridesmaids organised a beautiful paper weight which is a treasured gift and reminder of her wedding day.
Chris and Lucy tied the knot at the beautiful Elmore Court, the most amazing place for a summer wedding. Elmore Court is run by festival folk and our couple embraced the whole festival vibe and continued partying late into the night and early morning with guests camping in the field around the house.
ELMORE COURT WEDDING FLOWERS
Elmore Court is a unique venue in Gloucestershire with the most historical house where the ceremony is held.
CLASSIC WHITE HYDRANGEA BOUQUETS
Lucy had a good idea of what she wanted for her bouquets and chose classic white hydrangea bouquets with flowing ribbons.
FLOWER CROWNS FOR BRIDESMAIDS
The bridesmaids wore fluffy bridal crowns of delicate Baby’s Breath to enhance their dreamy dresses and Lucy’s bridal bouquet. Baby’s breath was used in decorations throughout the wedding being a favourite of the brides. A lucky charm as Chris and Lucy are now blessed with the most beautiful baby boy.
WEDDING OUTFITS FOR THE DOGS
The dogs were guests of honour at the wedding and followed Lucy everywhere. I just love their outfits, don’t they look so cute all dressed up for their special day.
THE WEDDING CEREMONY AT ELMORE COURT
Lucy and Chris chose to hold their ceremony inside to take advantage of the elegant setting of the house. Friends and family joined in their celebrations in such an amazing space. We added tied bunches of baby’s breath to the chairs for aisle decoration and they bought one of our ‘Choose a seat not a side, we’re all family once the knot is tied‘ signs from The Wedding of my Dreams.
ENTRANCE DECORATIONS AT ELMORE COURT
Grand entrances deserve grand decor and so we created florals in tall silver vases and arranged candles in silver lanterns and glass cylinder vases down the steps.
THE GARDENS AT ELMORE COURT
The gardens are just so beautiful and in June are full of flowers, I just love these shots in the relaxed meadow planting around the house. Can you just glimpse the tipees in the distance?
WEDDING RECEPTION FLOWERS AND STYLING IN THE GILLYFLOWER AT ELMORE COURT
The Gillyflower is a striking building set in the grounds of Elmore Court, its rammed earth walls and huge glass windows give the appearance of being in the meadow. Wedding flowers and styling need to reflect this and so we chose all white flowers with delphinium, hydrangea and clouds of Baby’s Breath.
We always love it when a bride has been recommended to Passion for Flowers by a previous bride and were delighted to meet with Jessica to discuss details for her summer wedding at Ettington Park in Warwickshire.
LARGE PINK PEONY BOUQUET
Jessica wanted us to create a bountiful pink peony bridal bouquet. Peonies are a great favourite for many brides and it is so beautiful to see them in abundance.
FREESIA CORSAGES FOR THE LADIES
Scented corsages of creamy white freesias were perfect for the ladies.
BABY’S BREATH FLOWER CROWNS FOR THE FLOWER GIRLS
Young flower girls adore wearing a flower crown on the wedding day and these delightful two were beautifully dressed in lace sleeved dresses to match the bride and wore Baby’s Breath flower crowns to finish their look.
VINTAGE CARS AND A CHURCH WEDDING
Arriving in a vintage car is a special part of a wedding day and a lovely opportunity for the bride and groom to travel together from the church to the venue as the new Mr and Mrs.
ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING FLOWERS
Ettington Park is one of our lovely Warwickshire venues and a great favourite of ours. Every couple is unique and their weddings are all different and usually a reflection of their tastes and personal loves. Jessica and Simon planned a romantic day with family and friends at this gorgeous venue.
MIX OF SILVER VASES FOR TOP TABLE CENTREPIECES
The reception in the Long Gallery offers plenty of decorating opportunities in the book laden room. A mix of silver vases decorated the top table with spring flowers. Luxe silver grey ribbon was used as an extra detail on the place settings.
SILVER CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES
Elegant silver candelabra with clouds of Baby’s Breath and Hydrangea decorated the guest tables
CAKE TABLE FLOWERS
When cutting the wedding cake it is a great idea to be sure there are some flowers to add some colour to the table and these stunning pink peonies hit just the right note. Peonies are the perfect flower for a May bride.
Hampton Manor is one of our favourite local wedding venues, we are so lucky it’s 10 minutes down the road from our floral studio and workshop. We will be decorating Elizabeth’s Court at their upcoming wedding fayre and can’t wait to show a beautiful selection of floral designs on long tables as well as a top table.
This is the perfect opportunity to come and meet us and see our floral creations.
Yolande and Ian married at Hampton Manor with a ceremony in The Birches and reception in Elizabeth’s Court. Richard Shepherd captured the romance of their wedding beautifully.
PEACH AND WHITE BRIDAL BOUQUET – PEACH AVALANCHE ROSES & HYDRANGEAS
The bridal bouquet was a large mix of peach avalanche roses and hydrangea. Ian, always so thoughtful, surprised his wife on their first anniversary and asked me to create a bouquet for her with the same mix of flowers. What a happy wife he has.
PEACH ROSE BUTTON HOLES
Peach and ivory avalanche roses were worn by the men.
HANGING APOTHECARY BOTTLES OUTSIDE THE CEREMONY
The Birches is set in a woodland part of the Hampton Manor Estate and hanging apothecary bottles look great hanging from the trees.
THE BIRCHES – WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS & DECORATIONS
The Birches suits rustic elegant styling with its large wooden doors, logs and wooden floor. We added candles with moss down the aisle and a mix of vases and vessels. We have an ever expanding selection which our couples can choose from when they meet at our new workshop in Berkswell. That way their wedding is personal to them.
NATURAL DELPHINIUM PETAL CONFETTI
Natural freeze dried confetti is beautifully scented and perfect for that confetti moment. Make sure you have some waiting in a basket at the ceremony location.
THE RECEPTION DECORATIONS – HAMPTON MANOR
CENTREPIECES – GROUPING OF GLASS AND SILVER VASES
Groupings work well for an informal layout with a variety of vases and vessels in differing heights.
As we regularly work at Hampton Manor we love it when new changes are made to venues. Hampton Manor have recently enhanced the outdoor area next to Elizabeth’s Court. There is a new seating area for guests to relax which would be lovely on a summers evening.
Have a look at the new seating area we recently styled with copper vases, pretty blooms lanterns, candles and sparklers. Doesn’t it look magical.
What do you think of our elevated florals shown here in the Parlour at Hampton Manor? This elevated design can be used along long tables to create the illusion of hanging flowers without having to fix anything to the ceiling at a venue – much quicker and easier to install on site than a hanging display. The flowers sit on a shelf supported by clear glass tall vases and we think they look just fab…
If you have longer tables the elevated display could continue onto another vase and another to match the length of your table.
If you are getting married at Hampton Manor we love a little extra floral decoration in the Parlour, it will be sure to wow your wedding guests.
