Wedding centrepieces bright summer flowers in crystal glass vases for relaxed summer wedding by Passion for Flowers @kmorganflowers

I am delighted to share these images from the most relaxed summer wedding flowers we created for Jacquie and Neil with a 60’s Rock and Roll vibe and natural looking flowers.

RELAXED FLOWER CROWN – YELLOW, WHITE AND GREEN

A lightweight feathery flower crown with delicate love in a mist, yellow craspedia, rose buds and snippets of soft ruscus suited the relaxed day and was worn by Jacquie from setting off to church through to the last dance of the evening.

The bride carried a very loose hand tied natural looking mix of garden roses, tanacetum daisy, soft ruscus trailing, blue love in a mist, cornflowers and pops of bright orange blooms  gorgeous with her Charlie Brear dress in pale ivory tones.

SUMMER BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS FOR FLORAL DRESSES

We always love our consultations when we get to see the bridesmaids dresses or swatches or colours and can then design bouquets to suite. The floral dresses worn by the girls looked stunning pared with loose natural summer bouquets.

RELAXED SUMMER FLOWERS FOR A COUNTRY CHURCH

Jacquie and Neil chose Laughern Hill with its walled garden setting, vinery and beautiful garden for their summer garden wedding. A marquee was set up in the gardens leaving an abundance of space to dress and decorate to their taste.

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.”

We always love it when a bride has been recommended to Passion for Flowers by a previous bride and were delighted to meet with Jessica to discuss details for her summer wedding at Ettington Park in Warwickshire.

LARGE PINK PEONY BOUQUET

Jessica wanted us to create a bountiful pink peony bridal bouquet. Peonies are a great favourite for many brides and it is so beautiful to see them in abundance.

Scented corsages of  creamy white freesias were  perfect for the ladies.

VINTAGE CARS AND A  CHURCH WEDDING

Arriving in a vintage car is a special part of a wedding day and a lovely opportunity for the bride and groom to travel together from the church to the venue as the new Mr and Mrs.

ETTINGTON PARK WEDDING FLOWERS

Ettington Park is one of our lovely Warwickshire venues and a great favourite of ours. Every couple is unique and their weddings are all different and usually a reflection of their tastes and personal loves. Jessica and Simon planned a romantic day with family and friends at this gorgeous venue.

MIX OF SILVER VASES FOR TOP TABLE CENTREPIECES

The reception in the Long Gallery offers plenty of decorating opportunities in the book laden room. A mix of silver vases decorated the top table with spring flowers. Luxe silver grey ribbon was used as an extra detail on the place settings.

CAKE TABLE FLOWERS

When cutting the wedding cake it is a great idea to be sure there are some flowers to add some colour to the table and these stunning pink peonies hit just the right note. Peonies are the perfect flower for a May bride.

HAIR FLOWERS & HANGING FLOWERS – BROOKLYN INSPIRED WEDDING

hand held floral arch for bride and groom

Every now and then time stops still to celebrate a wonderful marriage of two people so in love. I first met Ellie and Matt when they were down in Birmingham looking at venues for their wedding. They had strong ideas on the feel they hoped to create and took time to find venues and their wedding team.

The Oratory was such a special place for the wedding ceremony and for their initmate gathering of loved ones. In contrast the urban feel of The Church Inn in Birmingham gave us scope to create a great backdrop for their wedding celebrations. They loved the Brooklyn Inspired feel of urban places. Throughout the planning Ellie was happy to let us offer advice and we worked together beautifully to create this amazing moment in time.

We were thrilled to see this wedding featured on Love My Dress recently too.

HAIR FLOWERS

The bridesmaids wore beautiful white dresses individually chosen and we created loose half flower crowns for their hair flowers. Simple, understated but elegant bringing in soft blues, nude, white and stronger purple tones. The hair was styled by our friend Natalie at Bridal Hair Specialists.

WRIST CORSAGES

For a simple but stunning look the girls wore beautifully created wrist corsages keeping to the tones of the day, with astrantia, wax flower and snippets of garden greenery. Ellie looked stunning in her Sarah Willard Couture designed dress.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

Ellie’s bridal bouquet was designed with her dress and personal style in mind. I love brides giving us freedom to work our magic on their flowers and Ellie fell in love with her bridal bouquet. This loose hand tied design included clematis to trail, a mix of roses, astrantia, lilac, tulips, wax flower, amni and helebores with a mix of garden forages for added texture. I just love her gloves to complete her look.

BUTTONHOLES

The button holes were a mix of quicksand roses, wax flower, some with delicate blue snippets of hydrangea. I love this image of Matt with his button hole.

CHURCH DECORATION – CANDLES DOWN THE AISLE

The Oratory is an amazing space and candles down the aisle in all shapes and sizes create the perfect look. It felt like an Italian church with the wonderful architecture and we decided that flowers in church would not do it justice and agreed with Ellie and Matt to go all out for candlelight. The service was so personal and on entering the church the magic and love could be felt.

HAND HELD ARCH

Love this idea for a hand held arch for the couple.

HANGING FLOWERS

For the gathering after the formal part of the day Ellie knew she wanted hanging flowers to create a wow factor over the drinks table and as a backdrop to speeches and photos. An exhuberant mix of trailing foliage, large hydrangea blooms, trailing amaranthus, tulips threaded through the frame and scented wax flowers brought the room to life.

HOW TO MAKE A FLOWER CROWN – STEP BY STEP

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

Ever wondered how to make one of those pretty flower crowns you often see brides and bridesmaids wearing in our weddings? Well here you go, we have put together a step by step guide so you can learn how to make them. This is another of our DIY tutorials we have done in collaboration with Rock My Wedding, see more of our DIY floral guides here.

HOW TO MAKE A FLOWER CROWN

For this example floral crown we have used a mix of roses in nude and pink colours in different sizes as well as wax flower for texture. You can use any flowers for this, the larger the flower heads the less you will need, we suggest using flowers that will be used elsewhere in your wedding and in your bouquet.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

YOU WILL NEED

  • Quicksand Roses
  • Sweet Avalanche Roses
  • Bombastic spray Roses
  • Roll of florists’ tape
  • Wax Flower
  • Vendela Roses
  • Fine gauge silver florists’ 32 gauge wire and
  • Medium gauge 56 or 71 wire

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

1. Measure the head of the bride or person wearing the crown. The easiest way to do this is by using a piece of string. Add an additional 4cm to the length, these will be used to create hooks to hold it together.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

2. Using the medium guage wire cut this to match the length of the string, then cover it in florists tape.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

3. Select your flowers. For the roses cut the stems just below the flower head and push wire up through the centre of the stem. Add silver wire horizontally through the stem and twist it to secure with the main wire.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

4. Cover all the wires with tape, stretching the tape and pulling it as you wind around the wire to keep it as thin as possible. (no need to wire the wax flower)

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

6. Once you have done this for all the flowers you are going to use in your flower crown you can start adding them to the longer piece of tape covered wire you prepared in step 2. Working from one end, place the first flower and fasten to the circlet wire with florists tape, wrapping it around the wires to make sure it is secure, then add another flower and another. Try alternate the flowers on either side of the wire for a natural look and make sure large and small roses are interspersed with the wax flower for texture.

PEACH AND PINK WEDDING BOUQUETS & FLOWER CROWNS – A VINTAGE COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING

peach wedding bouquets whimsical country garden hampton manor passion for flowers

Victoria and Richard had a beautiful wedding at Hampton In Arden Church followed by a wonderful reception at Hampton Manor. This summer wedding had a vintage country garden style to it, including highlights of pink, peach and white to complement the mint green bridesmaids dresses.

PEACH AND PINK WEDDING BOUQUETS

For the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets we added highlights of peach and pink flowers which look stunning during the summer months. We used dahlia Cafe au Lait, a mix of vintage roses in creams, soft and deeper pink and peach tones of Magic Avalanche, Pearl Avalanche, scented Kiera garden roses, astrantia, eucalyptus and olive foliage with rosemary for a relaxed look. Long trailing ribbons completed the look.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

flower crowns weddings

Are you wondering how you will style your hair on your wedding day? Have you thought of wearing a flower crown? Many of our brides love wearing a circlet of fresh flowers in their hair on their wedding day, whether they wear it for the whole day or just after the ceremony for a more relaxed look. Today we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite flower crowns we have made for our brides as well as some inspiration from Pinterest.

FLOWER CROWNS WEDDING HAIR INSPIRATION

Caroline looked stunning in her large mixed coloured flower crown, her wedding colours tied into her watercolour theme so we used a mix of roses in pinky tones and blue hydrangeas for a full look.

Amy was married on New Years Eve, she wore a  flower crown made from the flowers of the day. For her white, gold and grey colour palette we used white roses in varying sizes, eucalyptus (some of it sprayed gold), hydrangeas and brunia. Amy wore her flower crown during the evening when the wedding turned into a New Years Eve party.

Victoria wore her flower crown after her wedding ceremony for a walk in the woods at Hampton Manor, we think she looked gorgeous in her peach and cream rose flower crown.

Leanne loved her flower crown, it suited her natural rustic wedding perfectly. We made a delicate flower circlet using very soft muted tones including wax flower for texture, Quicksand roses, bombastic roses and a touch of pittosporum.

Young bridesmaids and flower girls look especially cute when they wear flower crowns and hair flowers. Sometimes they prefer to wear something in their hair than hold a bouquet all through the day. This pretty little girl wore a gypsophila flower crown.

For this Indian wedding the young bridesmaids wore bright orange, yellow and red flower crowns to tie in with their orange bridesmaids dresses. Don’t they look adorable?

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – FLOWER CROWNS + HANGING GLOBES

wooden crate box with flowers top table shustoke farm barns summer wedding florist passion for flowers

Caroline and Rob tied the knot at Shustsoke Farm Barns on 1 August surrounded by family and friends. Caroline enjoyed the planning of her summer wedding and had a great eye for colour, the one thing she was certain of was she wanted to wear a flower crown for her wedding cermeony and hanging globes in the barn.

FLOWER CROWN – PINK, BLUE & GREEN HYDRANGEAS & ROSES

At our first meeting Caroline arrived with a gorgeous water colour board with inspiration for her day, tones of pinks, blues and greens. The flower crown we designed was very blousy and suited her curls on the day with a mix of pink, blue and green hydrangea with Sweet Avalanche and Ocean song roses. When the flowers were delivered in the morning the squeals of delight were wonderful to hear. The happiness captured in these photos at the start of the day continued throughout the day. What a beautiful relaxed and happy wedding day.

SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – CEREMONY FLOWERS

The ceremony barn was filled with flowers, Rob had made a rustic wooden planter for us to fill with blooms from the day – hydrangeas, feathery astilbe, eucalyptus and roses with moss to edge. Together with the large hanging flower globes filled with a mix of hydrangeas and eucalyptus the wooden planter gave just the look Caroline and Rob had hoped for. I just love the rustic tree slice ring box.

BRIDAL & BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – BRIGHT SUMMER FLOWERS

Caroline brought one of the dresses over to show me so we could finalise colours for the bouquets and we had great fun selecting such lovely bright summer flowers in colours of pink, green, lilac and blue. The long lace trailing ribbons for the bridesmaids added a good contrast to their floral dresses and finished off the look. The lace was also used to trail from Caroline’s flower crown. The bride herself carried a large bouquet of mixed hydrangeas and roses to offset her flower crown. Caroline bought cream jugs and attached personal tags for each of her maids.

FLOWER GARLAND AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

As guests and finally the bridal party arrived at Shustoke Famr Barns they were greeted by a rustic country style flower garland hanging above the oak doors to the barn. Once inside everyone  was greeted with a wonderfully hand crafted table plan and so many other personal touches.

TOP TABLE FLOWERS IN A RUSTIC CRATE – SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

The top table was the centre of attention for the meal and speeches with the rustic crate  handcrafted with love by Rob taking centre stage. The crate was over a metre in length and looked as if it was made for the barn.

PASTEL TONED FLOWERS FOR THE TABLES – WATER COLOUR THEME

Caroline had a water colour theme to her tables with handmade table numbers, beautifully hand dyed cloths in soft pastel tones on to which we added a mix of organic bottles and vases simply filled with just the right pastel toned blooms.

HANGING FLOWER GLOBES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS

Caroline had seen photos of one of our previous barn weddings and just knew she wanted large flower globes to be part of her day. The hanging globes are a great treat for us to create and we just love how they can transform this large space. If you are having your ceremony at the barn, followed by the meal and then the evening the hanging globes can be enjoyed throughout the day and add that extra WOW factor to your day.

WEDDING CAKE ON A TREE SLICE WITH FLOWERS

The wedding cake just needed simple blooms to add a touch of colour and be set on a rustic tree slice. We love the bit of whimsy with the beetle and the ladybird.

It is over a year since we first designed wedding flowers for Shustoke Farm Barns and we just love returning time after time as it gives us the opportunity to style it differently for each and every wedding. Our style is always in keeping with the natural look and feel of this wonderful wedding venue.

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.

RUSTIC ELEGANT WEDDING FLOWERS ~ LEANNE & DAVID

rustic-elegant-weding-flowers-flower-crown

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.

Leanne and her bridesmaids enjoyed their morning of preparations and we were delighted to meet up with some of our industry friends  Make up by Jodie and Helena Sinclair Bridal Hair when we arrived with the flowers.

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.

OUTDOOR WEDDING CEREMONY – WOODEN DOORS & RUSTIC CRATES

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.
