At Passion for Flowers we love weddings over the winter period and loved creating flowers for this elegant and timeless wedding at Compton Verney. Katie and Jason enjoyed a church wedding with family and friends.
Compton Verney Wedding – What A Beautiful Backdrop Compton Verney is certainly elegant and timeless and makes a wonderful backdrop to wedding photos. In fact there are so many wonderful places to capture those special moments to treasure. Just take a look at some of these stunning images.
Bouquets & Confetti
Nothing says wedding more than a confetti shot. We love freeze dried natural confetti for its delicate look. Katie and her girls carried bountiful bouquets with eucalyptus foliage and the softest David Austin Kiera and Tess roses, Quicksand and bombastic spray roses with snippets of scented Genista in the softest pink.
The Adams Hall has dramatic windows, ceiling and doors and tall centrepieces continue the drama. Gold floral stands had an overflowing decoration of textured foliage and scented blooms a beautiful contrast to the all white room. No candles are permitted as the venue is a museum and art gallery but to bring some sparkle we added hanging baubles to the stands and delicate LED lights to the low table decorations and vases.
Moongate Backdrop for Top Table at Compton Verney
The moongate created a symbolic circle of love behind the top table to frame the couple.
These images of our first wedding of the year in February bring much needed happiness and show how beautiful a winter wedding can be.
Please get in touch if you are needing to postpone your wedding and we can help you create a beautiful day with warmth and wonder.
A stunning shoot I worked on earlier in the year in the lovely Compton Verney wedding venue, an art gallery in a Grade I Georgian mansion surrounded by stunning parklands and lake played. Compton Verney is a special wedding venue for me as my son is getting married here next summer. The Adam Hall is the jewel of the Compton Verney estate. Featuring large picture windows, marble floor, ornate pillars and high ceilings, it exudes timeless elegance.
I worked on this shoot with a number of talented local wedding suppliers, we provided an epic floral backdrop made from dried bulrushes, foliage and pampas grass using brass vases and lanterns from our sister site The Wedding of my Dreams. I also made a loose hand tied bouquet featuring hand-dyed ribbons from Little Acorn Silks, which looked delicate and simple creating a modern, minimalist look.
A wedding fair is an opportunity to meet newly engaged couples, existing clients and to show our skills at decorating a venue. We loved the opportunity to decorate the Palladian style chapel at Compton Verney as well as decorating in the Adam Hall and Art Gallery.
The Chapel – Pampas Grass Aisle Decoration, Deconstructed Arch
The Chapel was restored lovingly and is now a most beautiful space for a ceremony. We designed a deconstructed arch to frame the ceremony with a naturally inspired mix of foliage, pampas grass, quicksand roses and delicate nigella. The aisle decoration flowed along the aisle with a relaxed walkway of foliage, amaranthus, quicksand roses and pampas grass.
Tall White & Green Centrepiece, White Floral Stand
The elegant Adam Hall with its tall ceiling benefits from tall centrepieces. For a classic, elegant look we designed the arrangements with masses of green foliage and wedding favourites scented garden roses, spray roses, ammi and lisianthus. For a spring look we added alliums and blossom. The white floral stand is the perfect height to allow guests to see each other across the table and is also available in gold, and copper to work with your wedding colours. Small white vases with single stems add interest at table height.
Moongate Backdrop & Bud Vase Window Display
The moongate was decorated with a delicate eucalyptus foliage for a light display keeping the look fresh and inviting. Buds vases placed along the table with roses, amaranthus and dried delphiniums continued the look. The moongate back drop is perfect for a ceremony or behind a top table, sweetheart table or to frame the cake table.
Rachel and Nick were married at Compton Verney in September. We met when Rachel was recommended to us by the award winning venue team. Rachel came to us with an idea of colours and an inspiration image and left the rest to us. As we love creating flowers at Compton Verney and decorating this stunning venue they were in safe hands.
Chris Barber has captured their day perfectly for us to share with you.
