CRYSTAL GLASS AND SILVER CENTREPIECES – SUDELEY CASTLE WEDDING

sudeley-castle-wedding-flowers-by-passion-for-flowers-1

Andrea and Mitch were living out in New York when they contacted us about creating the flowers for their summer wedding at Sudeley Castle. We had initial skype exchanges and met when the bride traveled over to the UK. We loved working with Andrea to create natural just picked flowers for her wedding in an English Castle. As you can imagine this historic venue was much admired by the visitors from The States.

ORGANIC FREEFORM DUSKY PINK ROSE BOUQUETS

Whilst the bridesmaids carried bouquets with a mix of dusky pink tones the bridal  bouquet had a more organic freeform design with plenty of trailing jasmine, queen anne’s lace, creamy peonies, wax flower, delicate astilbe and roses.

DUSKY PINK ROSE, ASTILBE, WAX FLOWER & JASMINE – HEAVENLY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The brides dress was  Rivini and suited the organic style of flowers we had selected together. The bridesmaids carried heavenly bouquets of dusky pink rose, astilbe, deep toned astrantia,wax flower and scented jasmine. Fabric from the girls dresses loosely wrapped around the stems of all the bouquets brought the look together.

ROSE & VERONICA BUTTON HOLES

CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS

The chapel at historic Sudely Castle is so romantic decorated with candles to the altar.

GYPSOPHILA GARLANDS & PEW ENDS FOR CHURCH

Andrea requested dreamy garlands of white flowers and simple bunches of gypsophila for the pew ends. The chapel with its history and wonderful workmanship does not suit over embellishing and this style of decor created just the candlelit style the couple hoped for.

SUMMER WEDDING CENTREPIECES – BRIGHT FLOWERS IN ECLECTIC MIX OF CRYSTAL VASES AND TEA CUPS

The tables had an eclectic mix of relaxed centrepieces. Bright flowers from the day unified the look and created the relaxed look the couple were hoping for. The Vinery was a lovely spot for photos and guests mingling with the grapes hanging above a set of rustic ladders. A favourite decoration of the day for our bride.

Our thanks to Jacquie and Neil for their amazing comments ;

“The flowers were a huge part of what made our day look so amazing. They complemented all of our ideas and added the finishing touches to what we think of as the most incredible day in our relationship. I cannot put more emphasis on how easy, accommodating and genuinely pleasant to work with Passion for Flowers were. I will continue to recommend them to everyone I meet who is planning a wedding. Words will always fail to express my gratitude to Karen and her team.”

Lisa and Aneel had their hearts set on a long table and found a great way of incorporating these into the room layout. Delicate candlesticks, votives and a mix of elegant footed vases and vessels were set our along the long table filled with scented florals to create their romantic reception.

CHAPEL DESIGNERS LONDON 2016

London and Brixton East had a surprise last week when an amazing group of talented floral designers and industry greats got together for Chapel Designers London 2016. The event organised by Holly Heider Chapple of Chapel Designers and Nick Priestly of Mood Flowers was an amazing few days of love, laughter, and learning.

These images show some of my personal highlights.

A Chapel Designers Conference gives everyone a chance to unwind, rethink mechanics and techniques, share experiences, start new friendships, noursish old friendships and learn in a relaxed and open way. Holly Chapple opended her heart to us and enabled us to produce some great work. Paul Pryke gave us an insight into the world of a floral writer and designer and inspired us with her work. Rebel Rebel told some great tales of early days and I just love their bouquet on legs. Flowerona gave us some useful tips on Instagram and social media.

After a demo from Holly I loved creating this elegant bouquet so beautifully captured by Amanda Dumouchelle who had travelled over from the US to work with Holly and the Chapel Designers. Her work is so wonderful I can’t wait to see more of her images of what my fellow Chapel Designers created. So much beauty in one place.

A highlight was the Chapel Designers Dinner where we celebrated with all the speakers and Chapel Designers, certainly an evening to remember. The fun we had creating the immense tablescape was awesome and we all enjoyed getting to dine under our floral canopy. Team work never looked so good.

An early morning visit to New Covent Garden Market gave us a chance to repurpose our designs alongside the Floral Angels. A great opportunity to support this wonderful charity so close to many of our hearts.

The finale was an epic demonstration by Shane Connolly, his dramatic urn design was overflowing with natural beauty and seasonal delights including garden favourites Viburnum burkwoodii, Amelanchier, Viburnum Opulus and Jasmine. I love his style of work and am thrilled to have had an opportunity to watch him at work.
