I am delighted to share this flower filled church wedding with you. Jessica and Matthew had a wonderful day with family and friends at Holy Trinity Church in Sutton Coldfield. We visited the church together to look at the ways we could decorate and Jessica and her mum wanted to be sure we had plenty of flowers. What a joy to create such beauty with our talented team.

HANGING FLOWER GLOBES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

Are you thinking of choosing deep purple and burgundy tones for your wedding flowers? Recently we were asked by Wedding Flowers Magazine to take our designs down to London to be shot for their November issue. We used deep purple / maroon / burgundy flowers mixed with a touch of gold to add some glamour.
DEEP PURPLE BRIDAL BOUQUET
For the bridal bouquet we used an natural mix of smoke bush and clematis foliage, deep toned dahlia perfect for an autumn wedding with scabious, scented Kiera rose, sloe berries and touches of trailing amaranthus. The mix of ribbons created a soft romantic finish.
DEEP PURPLE FLOWERS IN CRYSTAL BOWLS ON A GOLD PLATE FOR WEDDING CENTREPIECE
For the centrepiece we created an asymmetrical design in an antique crystal bowl filled with autumnal foliage and blooms, the gold plate added a touch of glamour and height to the design. The combination of autumnal foliage smoke bush, clematis with a mix of sedum and deep toned blooms were the perfect fit with the lush Kiera roses.
PLACE SETTINGS / ESCORT CARD IDEA
For the escort cards we used a mix of mini bottles with guests name and brought the outside in by incorporating snippets of foliage and flowers to set the tone for the day.
At Passion for Flowers we love hearing that our couples are planning an outdoor outdoor ceremony at Wethele Manor. Wethele is perfect for adding your own stamp on your day and we were trilled to style the day for Tara and Simo. Tara and Simo had been living in Sardinia and were joined on the day by family and friends.
INDIAN BRIDAL BOUQUET – DEEP PINK, YELLOW & ORANGE
Tara wore an amazing designer gown and we created a stunning bouquet in keeping with her bright colours for the day, blousy peonies, orange ranunculus, yellow billy balls and touches of gold hydrangea finished with an amazing antique gold braid Tara had sourced.
OUTDOOR CEREMONY AT WETHELE MANOR
The outdoor ceremony setting at Wethele Manor creates an elegant backdrop to your wedding ceremony. We added tall candelabra with flowers and trailing ivy to add a gorgeous glow to the wedding day. The flowers again continued the colours set by Tara’s wedding gown and we added trailing aramaranthus, yellow and red freesia as well as orange tulips to the mix.
BRIGHT BUTTON HOLES
The button holes were bright using freesia in a mix of colours and ranunculus.
FLOWER CROWNS FOR THE FLOWER GIRLS
Flowers crowns are just adorable for young flower girls and the bright orange ranunculus and red rose buds looked stunning with their dresses.
CENTREPIECES AT WETHELE MANOR
Tara and Simo chose a sweetheart table with a large centrepiece of big blooms from their day. We love creating WOW factor flowers for the ceremony and sweetheart table. On the guest tables we added a bright floral decoration to the kahari stands and a mix of mercury silver and gold containers with blooms from the day to complete the look. The large candelabra were moved inside to be enjoyed as guests entered the marquee.
