We love seeing our designs in magazines. This month’s Wedding Flowers Magazine features our designs in their mixed / bright flowers section of their look book.
MIXED BRIGHT WEDDING FLOWERS
For the mixed flowers we decided to show something that would suit many of our couples. We love the mix of bright pink peonies, with lilac lisianthus, black and white anemone, bright green guelder roses and hints of wax flower. The ribbon we used on the bouquet wrap was a hand dyed ribbon,one of our finds from a recent trip to New York, finished with a brooch we found on our trip too.
For the centrepiece we showed a simple posy of flowers in a ribbed vase and apothecary bottle on a wooden tree slice (slices are available to hire if you are a Passion or Flowers bride / or to buy from The Wedding of my Dreams).
If you are looking for escort cards for your wedding then why not try small apothecary bottles with single flower heads and a cute luggage tag label. These can be displayed for guests to take to their table.
This month we also gave some advice for choosing the right florist for your wedding. If you are still looking for a wedding florist then read our tips on our website and if you think we might be the right wedding florist for you get in touch to check availability.
We just love Barnsley House wedding flowers and we delighted to be asked to be the wedding florist for a gorgeous wedding on 1 May. I had the good fortune of meeting Annalise and Pez earlier this spring to finalise arrangements for their intimate wedding celebrations at Barnsley House.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BUTTON HOLES
For the day Annalise chose creamy whites and soft blush tones for her wedding flowers. Pez’s button hole had a touch of spray rose and eucalyptus to tie in with the bridal bouquet.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ FLOWER GIRLS POMANDERS
When I first saw photos of the gorgeous dresses the young girls would be wearing I just knew that the dreamy flower girl pomanders would look stunning. Their soft blush pink dresses had a blousy rose and they all enjoyed their day so much. I’ll let you into a little secret here, when collecting the urns the next day the girls had chosen to wear their dresses for their breakfast and still looked just as cute!
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ BRIDAL BOUQUET
Annalise had discussed her stunning dress with me and chose a blousy rose and scented peony bouquet with touches of eucalyptus. The look was timeless and so so elegant.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ INDOOR CEREMONY
At Barnsley House we created an elegant timeless setting for the indoor ceremony, the large urns brought the feeling of a garden setting filled with hydrangea, peonies and roses. The aisle was lined with elegant silver lanterns filled with fresh rose petals.The gardens beckoned for a few photos after the ceremony just before the heavens opened again but nothing could dampen the spirits of this happy couple.
BARNSLEY HOUSE WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CENTREPIECES
Candles and mercury silver created the elegant centrepieces for this Barnsley House wedding. The huge mirror and fireplace overflowing with candles and candlesticks set a romantic look and feel to the room. The centrepieces continued this elegant look with a mix of candlesticks, silver footed bowls and mercury silver vases and vessels filled with scented roses and peonies. I love the freshness of the rosemary tucked into each place setting.
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.
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.
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.
OUTDOOR CEREMONY – SHEPHERDS CROOKS DOWN THE AISLE
Shepherds crooks with simple posies lined the aisle and were later used to decorate the outside tables.
RUSTIC ELEGANT FLOWER CROWN FOR THE BRIDE
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.
We will leave you with their beautiful wedding video below.
Much love, Karen and The Passion for Flowers team x
