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.

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.

AUTUMN MARQUEE WEDDINGS: DECORATING THE BAR

Katrina and Ed’s background in hospitality meant that the food and drink were high of their list of priorities as well as attention to detail. We created a warm welcome at the bar with a curated collection of drinks bottles with blooms from the day.

AUTUMN MARQUEE WEDDINGS: EXTRA DETAILS AROUND THE MARQUEE

When planning decoration for a marquee wedding it is the extra details that help make the day so wonderful, the autumnal toffee apples added a fun and playful touch. The blue glasses a touch of colour and a dusting of sparkle on the side tables.

Isobel and Ed were married back in May 2013 the ceremony was held at Princethorpe College and then on to Park Farm in Upper Shuckburgh for the reception.

COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING FLOWERS

At our consultation we highlighted a number of flowers which we would use throughout the day, these included peonies, hydrangeas in cream, pink and blue, avalanche and sweet avalanche roses, wax flower, gyposphila with eucalyptus. The choice of flowers offered a great mix of soft rounded shapes and texture for contrast to create the country garden rustic look they were after.

COUNTRY GARDEN BRIDAL BOUQUET

Isobel’s bridal bouquet was a handtied mix of country garden flowers, she had beautiful pink peonies, white peonies, blush pink roses with highlights of wax flower, gypsophila and astilbe. We used an off cut of lace from her dress to wrap the handle of the bouquet so it tied in with her dress perfectly, pinned onto the bouquet handle was a stunning brooch that belonged to her Granny.

COLOURFUL BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The bridesmaids wore colourful dresses, all six bridesmaids had a different coloured dress which worked well for this relaxed style of wedding. For each bridesmaid we created a bouquet which complimented her dress. The bouquets were all made from a mix of hydrangeas and roses with extra foliage and flowers for textures, we used different colours of hydrangeas and roses for each of the girls. The bouquet handles were all wrapped with hessian and raffia to create a relaxed country feel.

COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING FLOWERS IN THE MARQUEE

At Park Farm there was a lovely set up of tipis, hay bales covered in cosy blankets and the main marquee to welcome guests. We focused our floral decorations in the main marquee.

The marquee was filled with colourful country bunting strung from the roof with paper pom poms and lanterns hanging down at various points, this created a real wow factor was guests walked into the marquee for the first time. On the tables we laid out our hessian runners and squares of hessian over the linen cloths to create more interest.

The top table had a central arrangement which sat in front of the bride and groom, running along the length of the table were a mix of bottles filled with flowers of the day. The bride and her bridesmaids wanted to get involved with decorating so did these bottles themselves as well as hanging up hearts around the marquee and other finishing touches.

The guest tables had a country rustic cream jug placed on a hessian square, we used a mix of hydrangeas, wax flower, peonies, roses, gyp and eucalyptus in these which smelt divine. We tied raffia around the jugs which the table number was pegged onto. Isobel had collected candles and tea lights to scatter around the tables.

COUNTRY GARDEN TABLE PLAN

We made Isobel and Ed’s wedding table plan from white washed wooden crates which we hung small silver buckets from and filled with peonies, roses and wax flower. Each bucket represented a different table and had a list of the guests names tied to the front of it.
