Jessi and Jamie asked us to create a ‘Secret Garden’ look and feel to the English part of their wedding celebrations. We loved coming up with ideas and working with this lovely couple to create their wedding look. It is so wonderful when our couples have confidence in us and give us comments like this:
“Thank you so much Karen! We trust you completely so whatever you think would make the feel of it come alive works for us! “
Jessi carried a romantic white peony bouquet and for her maids a bunch of scented lavender keep the look natural and so so English.
HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING CEREMONY
CYLINDER VASE LANTERNS, BRONZE FLORAL STANDS & A DOG
Well we loved creating this look for this romantic look with cylinder vases down the aisle, bronze stands with natural arrangements including English Margaret Merrill roses, ferns, trailing foliage and clematis with simple bunches of English lavender to the chairs. Most of all we loved their beloved dog Oreo who stole the show in his bespoke waistcoat.
So when your couple love books and especially the Secret Garden that gives plenty of scope for the most beautiful set up in Hampton Manor. Moss runners and books, delicate ferns in china tea cups and the most beautiful blooms created a gorgeous look and feel to the room. Jamie is one romantic groom and there was not a dry eye in the room when he surprised his bride with an interruption to the speeches when an amateur dramatic group began renditions from Les Miserables, her favourite musical. This was performed in front of her eyes and was one incredible surprise.
CHEESE WEDDING CAKE AND CAKE TABLE FLOWERS
The cake table was decorated with English lavender bunches, a mix of moss covered books and blooms from the day. Crystal decanters with scented peonies and grasses kept the look soft and romantic.
EVENING TABLE CENTREPIECES WITH CANDLES
As the guests headed back to the room for the evening celebrations they were greeted by a change of scene with candlelit tables.
We are eternally thankful for the lovely couples who chose us for their wedding flowers and styling and to the venues we dress and of course the photographers who capture their days so beautifully.
Thank you Jamie and Jessi and all our good wishes for the next stage of this romantic story.
Our birch arch makes a stunning backdrop for a wedding ceremony. The ceremony barn at Hampton Manor is the perfect setting. We created this autumnal setting at Hampton Manor using large tree stumps down the aisle with candle in clear glass cylinder vases making a lovely setting for the entrance of the bride.
The focal point is of course the birch arch which we draped with sheer white material and organic style florals to each corner, we used lush foliage, dark red hydrangeas, nude roses and larger statement blooms for a textured autumnal look.
Hampton Manor is our closest venue, just a stone’s throw from our studio in Berswell and we always love a Hampton Manor wedding.

ELEGANT CEREMONY FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR
An all white and cream display for the ceremony is always fresh and elegant.
Spring is a wonderful time of year for weddings and can often be overlooked. For me it symbolises new beginnings and offers the most amazing time of year to tie the knot. An abundance of tulips, narcissi, ranunculus and blossom herald a most magical time of year for a spring wedding ceremony.
Don’t forget to weave some floral magic outside, create a welcome with plants, trees or hang bottles from trees as a photo booth. A flower cart with natural blooms creates a wonderful scented welcome for a Barn wedding ceremony.

WEDDING ESCORT CARDS – SPRING FLOWERS IN BOTTLES
Our couples love using escort cards as an alternatiave to a formal table plan, guests find the bottle with their name attached with details of the table they are assigned to. These make amazing favours or additional table decor and add to the spring look in the reception room.
This weekend we exhibited at Hampton Manor Wedding Fair. Here at Passion for Flowers we love working at Hampton Manor, not only is it 10 minutes from our floral workshop but the new ceremony barn is just our style. We exhibited within the Birches and showed a rustic glamour style table as well as styling the ceremony.
We used gold candelabra as centrepieces with highlights of nude Quicksand roses, hydrangeas, wax flowers and eucalyptus. Of course we added an eclectic mix of bronze and gold tea light holders for extra candle light.
