TALL BRONZE CENTREPIECES AT HAMPTON MANOR

Tall bronze centrepieces wedding flowers at Hampton Manor by Passion for Flowers - peach cream foliage (1)

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.

HAMPTON MANOR – WEDDING FAIR AUTUMN 2016

stone-urn-centrepieces-white-hydrangeas-winter-wedding-flowershampton-manor-wedding-florist-passion-for-flowers-21

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

top-table-floral-garlands-with-candle-sticks-wow-factor-hampton-manor-wedding-florist-passion-for-flowers

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.

stone-urn-centrepieces-white-hydrangeas-winter-wedding-flowershampton-manor-wedding-florist-passion-for-flowers-21

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.

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.

We were pleased to meet so many newly engaged couples and existing clients excited to see the Manor dressed in all its glory.

ENTRANCE TABLE / WELCOME TABLE FLOWERS – LUXE GOLD URNS

The warmth of the entrance hall is enhanced by a statement feature. We choose our luxe gold urn filled to brimming with sumptuous blooms including lilac, delphiniums, viburnum opulus, blousy hydrangea and avalanche roses with green bursts of Bells of Ireland. Asymetric trails of ivy and amaranthus cascaded onto the table. A mix of smaller gold vases and vessels completed this luxe look.

WOODLAND RUSTIC WEDDING CEREMONY AT HAMPTON MANOR – TREE STUMPS, CANDLES & MOSS

tree stumps logs for rustic wedding ceremony with candles

At the end of October Passion for Flowers transformed The Birches, Hampton Manor’s wedding ceremony barn, into a woodland rustic wedding ceremony setting for their Wedding Fair.  We wanted to style the barn for an Autumn woodland wedding ceremony, below are just a few photos, by Fjona Wei-Ling. More photos to follow shortly.

WOODLAND RUSTIC WEDDING CEREMONY AT HAMPTON MANOR

To line the aisle we placed a couple of stacked tree slices with a mix of moss, succulents and candles to create a woodland walkway for the bride to walk towards her groom. At the end of the aisle where the couple stand to say their vows and promises we wanted to create a woodland area to frame the couple.

The woodland wedding arbour to frame the couple as they say their vows and promises was a mix of moss, foliage, wax flower, amaranthus and roses. At the base we used large tree stumps in varying sizes covered in moss and succulents with the addition of candle light to add a rustic glow to the area.

A garland was laid on the floor in a semi circle for the couple to stand inside when they say their vows. woodland rustic wedding ceremony hampton manor barn the birches by passion for flowers

For the Wedding Fair we also showed our wooden wedding favour cart, which we hire out to our couples. This was filled with jam wedding favours and popcorn favours. Our chalkboard signs were hung over chairs to give couples more ideas for decorating the wedding ceremony barn.

Karen delivered an inspiration session at Hampton Manor’s wedding fair, helping couples work with the seasons for their wedding. Our set of vintage ladders was used to hold jam jars filled with flowers and foliage from different seasons.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW 2015

PASSION FOR FLOWERS STAND AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

At Passion for Flowers we love the chance to design our show stopping stand at The National Wedding Show. We are able to meet so many couples either just starting off on their wedding planning journey or wanting to be inspired for some last minute touches. Our stand showed a glimpse into our style of individually designed weddings. Every wedding is unique and designed with our couples in mind to reflect their tastes, venue and personalities. Passion for Flowers couples love flowers and have them high on their wedding list.

Cascading garlands of scented roses and foliage hung delicately from the muslin drapes. The large tablescape included a mix of bronze and gold vases and vessels filled with an autumnal mix of foliage and soft blooms. The hanging installation created a WOW factor to the stand with trailing amaranthus, roses, helebores and even more cascading foliage. Country house venues with fireplaces are lovely to decorate so we styled a fireplace with an asymetrical garland and bronze candlesticks.

BOUQUET FROM THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

A blousy bouquet in our natural romantic style with a heavenly mix of eucalyptus, astilbe, helebores, lisianthus and scented roses stole the show. We always love the richness of soft ribbons to trail.

HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING FAIR SOLIHULL

gold candelabra wedding

This weekend we exhibited at Hampton Manor Wedding Fair. Here at Passion for Flowers we love working at Hampton Manor, not only is it 10 minutes from our floral workshop but the new ceremony barn is just our style. We exhibited within the Birches and showed a rustic glamour style table as well as styling the ceremony.

We used gold candelabra as centrepieces with highlights of nude Quicksand roses, hydrangeas, wax flowers and eucalyptus. Of course we added an eclectic mix of bronze and gold tea light holders for extra candle light.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – FLORISTS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

As you may know here at Passion for Flowers we exhibited at The National Wedding Show in Birmingham last weekend, we absolutely loved the whole weekend meeting newly engaged couples and industry friends. We plan our stand months in advance it was amazing to see our visions come to life, we believe all the hard work and planning paid off as we were thrilled to be awarded The Outstanding Exhibitor Award.

We invited Nicola of Daffodil Waves Photography along to take some photos of our stand for those of you who couldn’t make it to the show.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS – A WEDDING FLORISTS STAND

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014- Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

We chose to create a rustic glamour setting for our stand this year, we often work at rustic style wedding venues (barns and farms) and love adding a touch of glamour to the tables mixed in with the natural rustic look.

LONG TABLE WITH A SEA OF FLOWERS AND GOLD CANDELABRA

The long table scape was our main feature this year, we set it for 6 to give an idea of how it could be used at a wedding. More venues are offering long tables for receptions now, or these florals could go along a top table.

Down the centre of the table we created a sea of flowers in bronze, gold and crystal glass vases with three gold candelabra to give height (all available to hire from Passion for Flowers).

The mix of flowers we used on the table were Quicksand roses, Secret Garden roses, Vendela roses, Bombastic spray roses, Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, white anemones, scabious seed heads, wax flower, brunia, dusty miller and eucalyptus.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

BRONZE TEA LIGHT HOLDERS & DETAILS

We used a number of decorations from our sister company The Wedding of my Dreams for extra styling, including bronze ribbed tea light holders and chunky bronze vases. At each place setting was an advice for the bride and groom coaster – we love this as an alternative wedding guest book.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

WEDDING STATIONERY

The stationery was by Tom Gautier of Paper & Things, we loved the individual menus and name cards with the floral illustration, and the table plan cards too. The name cards were used in our bud vase name card holders, which are just like old fashioned salt cellars.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

TALL GLASS VASES FOR CENTREPIECES

Along the back wall we displayed a tall centrepiece in a relaxed style, this could either be used as a centrepiece with a grouping of smaller bronze vases around the base or as a floral display at the wedding ceremony. The table plan is one of our newest and favourite table plans we hire out, we created a floral garland around the arch of the window shutters table plan with blush pink and nude florals in bronze vases running in front of it.

BRIDAL BOUQUETS

We had two bridal bouquets on display, both tied with glamorous gold ribbon to trail. The first was a blousy loose hand tied bouquet of Café Au Lait dahlias, white ranunculus, dusty miller and white astilbe. The other was a rose bouquet of Quicksand roses, Bombastic spray roses, wax flower and eucalyptus.

CHALKBOARD SIGNS

On the chair backs we used a couple of chalkboard chair signs from The Wedding of my Dreams, Mr & Mrs as well as Here Comes the Bride. On the other chairs we created floral chair garlands of eucalyptus, ivy, soft ruscus, scabious seed heads and wax flower for a relaxed rustic look.

FLOWER CROWNS

Each day at the show we wore flower crowns created with a similar mix of flowers we had used elsewhere in the displays.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

We used crates along the back wall to showcase some of our other favourite ideas, including rustic tree slices with a grouping of bottles, succulent wedding favours, sprinkle me confetti bags and our welcome wedding sign. Of course we proudly displayed our Best Wedding Florist in the West Midlands award.

THE CHAMPAGNE BAR FLOWERS

Here at Passion for Flowers we strategically chose a stand next to the champagne bar, mainly so we could treat ourselves at the end of a busy day! We created table centres for the tables on the champagne bar using soft pastel pinks and creams. The flowers we used in theses centrepieces were Sweet Avalanche roses, Bombastic spray roses, astilbe, wax flower, astrantia and white hydrangeas.

Passion-for-Flowers-wedding-florists-warwickshire-birmingham-cotswolds-the-national-wedding-show-2014-

WEDDING MAGAZINE STAND

We also loved creating the garlands for Wedding Magazine’s stand, and made the girls flower crowns to wear throughout the show. The garlands were in keeping with their bright pink logo so we used Kate David Austin roses, lisianthus, Wizard Of Oz dahlias, Harmony dahlias, Blue Curiosa roses, veronica, sedum, astrantia and poppy heads.

We love their comment…

The flowers on the stand were the best we have ever had, and we all LOVED the flower crowns you very kindly made.
