SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FLOWER CROWNS + HANGING GLOBES

wooden crate box with flowers top table shustoke farm barns summer wedding florist passion for flowers

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.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS FEATURED IN WEDDING FLOWERS MAGAZINE

wedding flowers mag sept & oct 2014 pg 21

Here at Passion for Flowers we work closely with a number of wedding magazine. We were thrilled to see us appear in the latest Wedding Flowers And Accessories Magazine under ‘Ask The Experts’

OUR ADVICE

When thinking about your choice of flowers, always include blooms with interesting texture. From blowsy peonies to more hardy seed pods, chic succulents to feathery foliage and herbs, there’s nothing better than a bouquet rich with texture.

In addition, if you’re thinking of having props at your wedding – be it a vintage suitcase to collect cards, wooden crates to fill with overflowing blooms or an eclectic mix of bottles and vases, it’s worth checking with your florist if they have any of these items to hire. Many florists spend time scouring reclamation yards and markets for these props – so ask before you go hunting!

VINTAGE WEDDING FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – SUPER 8 FILM

At Passion for Flowers we love it when our brides let us in on a secret. This film by Mark Brown was so special as it was a present from a bride to her groom. What a gorgeous surprise for Richard and a wonderful gift from his bride Victoria as a lasting reminder of their wonderful wedding day at Hampton Church and Hampton Manor.

Victoria and her bridesmaids carried gorgeous summer vintage style bouquets, we love using vintage flowers at Hampton Manor. We used dahlia Cafe au Lait, a mix of vintage roses in creams, soft and deeper pink and peach tones of Magic Avalanche, Pearl Avalanche, scented Kiera garden roses, astrantia, eucalyptus and olive foliage with rosemary for a relaxed look. Long trailing ribbons completed the look. After the church service Victoria changed to wearing a flower crown of mixed summer flowers including garden roses which totally suited her relaxed day with vintage elements.

What a beautiful bride wonderfully captured on film.

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

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.

It occurred to us this week that many of you never get to see inside our florist workroom. Our workroom is where we make all the floral creations for your weddings. We take in large deliveries of flowers and condition them until the wedding day, sometimes filling the entire floor space of the workroom. We work on large scale arrangements as well as intricate details such as button holes and flower crowns in the workroom. All our props, vases, signs and other bits and pieces we have picked up along the way are stored in our workroom too. So… we thought you’d like to see some pics.

ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING FLOWERS – CORAL, MINT GREEN & PEACH

coral mint green peach wedding flowers bouquets

When I first met Sarah and Cam I knew we would all get along famously and that we could help them create a beautiful wedding at Ettington Park.The moment they showed me their travel inspired Save The Date’s on a luggage tag I loved them. They met and got engaged on a plane so the travel idea was just perfect. The brand colours for their wedding of  coral, mint and peach with grey, were great to work with and we highlighted garden roses in soft peach tones,ranunculus and the grey tones of eucalyptus, brunia and lamb’s ears with rustic touches.

PEACH CREAM AND GREY BRIDAL BOUQUET

Sarah had chosen a gorgeous dreamy dress and knew the style of bouquet she wanted for her peach, cream and grey bridal bouquet. We chose a mix of David Austin garden roses in peach and cream with snippets of grey brunia and cream ranunculus finished with hessian and heart buttons.

The bridesmaids wore navy dresses which we teamed with bouquets in a mix of peach and mint green, again finished with hessian and twine. The bouquets were created with a mix of David Austin peach roses, Bloom chrysanthemums, wax flower and soft lambs ears for texture and the perfect mint green tone.

The ceremony room at Ettington Park was full of fresh rose petals to line the aisle and soft candelight from the silver lanterns to herald Sarah’s arrival for the ceremony.

To celebrate their marriage at an English country hotel Sarah and Cam chose an afternoon tea party after the ceremony. Gorgeous home baked cookies and sweet delights filled the table. A cute posy to the main cake was just the right finishing touch with the Mr and Mrs cake bunting. Extra details including the cake flags and Just Married Hessian Bunting were from our sister site, The Wedding of my Dreams.

Louise and Neil had an elegant marquee wedding in a private home in Orton on the Hill, they were married in the lovely church next door. We will blog more about this elegant wedding soon but for now we just wanted to show you our wooden window shutter table plan and how it can be styled.

Our wooden window shutter table plan and cream metal stand are both available for hire to all Passion for Flowers couples. We love how Louise and Neil styled it with their table plan cards pegged onto each window with white wooden heart pegs. We think it looks stunning in this elegant marquee.

CREAM & NUDE ROSES BRIDAL BOUQUET

As soon as we heard about Justine’s Ian Stuart dress we knew we had to create a perfect bouquet to set it off; we agreed on a cream and nude bouquet with an abundance of quicksand roses, ranunculus, snippets of astrantia. Justine was overjoyed with the florals for the day and her cream and nude roses bridal bouquet. We feel it worked wonderfully with her statement dress totally in keeping with the elegant, romantic look.

WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CEREMONY URNS WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF GREEN & NUDE FLORALS

Walton Hall Wedding Flowers and decorations are always elegant and in keeping with this gorgeous venue. We met Justine and Andy at the National Wedding Show and they fell in love with our rustic inspired urns and table decorations and we worked closely with them to design the florals for the ceremony urns with an abundance of green and nude florals. Eucalyptus, hydrangea, lisianthus, viburnum opulus or guelder rose with quicksand roses toned beautifully with the elegant mercury silver candlesticks and elegance of Walton Hall.

WALTON HALL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ ELEGANT TABLE CENTREPIECES

At Walton Hall it is key to use elegant table centrepieces, here with some rustic textures and soft tones of flowers, we combined mercury silver hurricane vases for the elegance with a soft mix of hydrangea, ranunculus, anemones, guelder roses as well as quicksand roses. The urns for the ceremony were later re-purposed in the alcoves to be enjoyed during the wedding breakfast. Justine loves candles and we had filled the fireplace, tables and windowsills with a mix of mercury candlesticks and tea lights, another elegant touch.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ RELAXED RUSTIC WEDDING WITH HANGING GLOBES

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.

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.

CRIPPS BARN WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CEREMONY BARN FLOWERS

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.
