CREAM & GREEN BOUQUETS FOR THE BRIDE AND HER BRIDESMAIDS
CANDELABRA WEDDING CENTREPIECES – HAMPTON MANOR
WEDDING CAKE TABLE FLOWERS – WE PROVIDED VASES FOR THE BOUQUETS TO SIT IN ON THE CAKE TABLE
Looking for tall wedding centrepice ideas for your Hampton Manor wedding? Hampton Manor suits tall centrepieces. At the spring wedding fair we showed our two newest floral stands both of which would be perfect for Hampton Manor, depending on your style. This rustic branch stands would also suit barn wedding venues, or could be used as floor standing arrangements to frame your ceremony in The Birches and later used on the tables.
TALL GOLD STANDS
Tall gold stands are great for adding height and a WOW factor to a room. Here a lush arrangement with trailing foliage and a mix of scented roses, ranunculus, tuberose and tulips filled the room with scent and romance. The stands can be set out along tables or to form a top table arrangement. Smaller vases and candlesticks along the table finish the look.
TALL RUSTIC CENTREPICES – BRANCH STANDS
Tall bronze branch stands add an element of drama to the room, they suit relaxed mixed foliage displays with highlights of seasonal blooms. Here we added a mix of beautiful English tulips perfect for a spring wedding. These stands can be used floor standing at the entrance to a room, either side of the aisle or ceremony and later for the dinner.
Extra details are always appreciated a single stem to the chair and place setting is a lovely touch.
I am delighted to share these photos of a gorgeous December wedding at Hampton Manor.
There is always a sense of excitement when visiting a bride on her wedding morning, last minute checks on the bridal bouquet before handing it over and of course seeing the dress hanging up in pride of place.
THE BIRCHES AT HAMPTON MANOR, CEREMONY BARN
The Birches at Hampton Manor is a graceful ceremony barn and on this December morning the sun shone through to create a beautiful warm environment for this wedding ceremony.
Large stone urns created the backdrop and were overflowing with a bold design with a mix of foliage and flowers. Colour is so important and our couple knew they wanted to have beautiful flowers and warm winter colours for their wedding.
The room looked splendid with these gorgeous sequin cloths and deep burgundy napkins with individual pace settings. The gold table numbers kept to the warm elegant look and the tables had a mix of high and low centrepieces. The low centrepieces featured a glass hurricane vase with candle set inside a lush ring of eucalyptus foliage and a mix of roses. Extra details were added with the tea lights.
I was delighted to receive such a lovely note from Mr and Mrs Walton after their wedding.
“Karen, everything you created for our wedding day was simply stunning and far better than I ever imagined. You delivered the wedding of my dreams, it was just perfect.
From the very beginning of our planning journey, flowers were always a priority so they were very high up on our list. When I came across your previous work I just knew I had found the perfect person for the job.
We took a lot of the flowers home with us and admired them for a couple of weeks before they turned. I have pressed a couple to keep and frame them as a lovely keepsake of the day.
Thank you so much once again.

Sarah and Adam planned the most beautiful autumn church wedding followed by a reception for family and friends at our favourite Hampton Manor. They are currently living out in Hong Kong and so we had the opportunity to meet up on their visits home as well as skype and share pinterest boards and ideas during the planning stages.
BRIDAL AND BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – AUTUMN COLOUR PALETTE
Right from the start this couple knew they wanted natural organic style flowers with lots of autumn colour. With the navy blue two birds bridesmaids dresses, the burgundy and pink tones worked well with plenty of foliage and texture to the bouquets.
BARSTON CHURCH WEDDING
Sarah had the pleasure of walking down from her family home to the village church for the wedding service where everyone was awaiting her arrival.
Adam’s face is a picture awaiting her arrival. The boys wore button holes in the softest dusky pink to tie in with Sarah and her maids.
VINTAGE SPORTS CAR
Adam drove his bride away in a vintage Jaguar XJS to the sound of rattling tin cans. This epic shot at the entrance to Hampton Manor is just so timeless and sums up the romance of their wedding day.
TALL CENTREPIECES AT HAMPTON MANOR – AUTUMN AND ORGANIC STYLE
The natural organic style continued through to Elizabeth Court at Hampton Manor. Adam in particular loved the idea of tall centrepieces and we agreed on clear glass vases with an organic design with tall twigs, eucalyptus foliage and the softest of roses.
TOP TABLE FLOWERS – LOW ARRANGEMENT
On the top table flowers we added the beautiful bridesmaids bouquets to add impact to the table among the candles.
The wedding cake by Ben The Cakeman brought together the Chinese and English elements of the day with the beautiful addition of the chopsticks and the berries.
Thank you Sarah and Adam for sharing your beautiful wedding photos we loved being part of your day.
Katie and Adam tied the knot at Hampton Manor and we worked our magic to create their dream wedding with dusky pink roses, trailing ivy and blackboard welcome signs.
WELCOME DISPLAYS AT HAMPTON MANOR
As guests arrive at your wedding venue make them feel really at home with a welcome display giving an insight into your wedding day look and feel. The beautiful entrance at Hampton manor suits relaxed styling with warm lanterns, and natural flowers and ivy foliage.
Delivering the wedding bouquets on the wedding morning is always an emotional time and we loved the excitement when a bride first sees the bridal party flowers. The choice of wedding bouquet is one of the key decisions for any wedding as the bouquet is one of the most photographed pieces of the day.
STUNNING WEDDING CAKE
The icing on the cake for any wedding is a cake from Ben the Cakeman. This semi naked cake design is just so stunning. We love to meet Ben on the morning of the wedding with fresh flowers which he then works his magic on to create an amaziing look which always surpasses our expectations. His attention to detail is beyond comparison and this wedding cake was a real beauty.
Thank you Katie and Adam for sharing your beautiful wedding images with us. We love receiving images from our couples and lovely comments like these
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful flowers and decorations for our wedding day! We were so pleased with them, they were perfect! We had so many comments about them on the day, and they complemented the venue perfectly. You made the whole process and run up to the wedding easy and stress free”

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.
Autumn is a great time for embracing warm tones of burgundy, deep reds, off set with a touch of nude and plenty of foliage. Add wooden signs to welcome your guests and plenty of candles. Tall autumn centrepieces add splendour and a WOW factor to any table setting here they are complemented by bronze candlesticks and vases.

Creating flowers at Hampton Manor for weddings is always a treat, the warm wood, stone arches in this arts and craft house need the right floral touches to bring them to life. If your budget permits staircase flowers are a wow factor statement.

These staircase flowers will be a focal point during your drinks reception creating a warm welcome for your guests and setting the tone for the rest of your day before they head through to Elizabeth’s Court. Here at Passion for Flowers we always jump at the chance to decorate the staircase for a wedding. Foliage, seasonal blooms and dashes of candlelight show you what can be done.

BRIDAL BOUQUET – WINTER BLACK TIE WEDDING
The moment of truth when you present your bridal bouquet to the bride is a moment of pure joy to behold. Katie was beyond excited and so happy with her bouquet. The flowers chosen had great sentimental value and were some of Katie’s Grandma’s favourites. The girls look so elegant in their black bridesmaids gowns perfect for a winter black tie wedding.
WHITE BUTTON HOLES
Scented white freeia, brunia and eucalyptus flowers for the ladies and delicate white raunculcus for the boys.
WINTER WEDDING CEREMONY IN THE BIRCHES AT HAMPTON MANOR

PROPS – ILLUMINATED LOVE LETTERS
Our grey illuminated LOVE letters added a romantic touch to the Secret Garden room. They are available to hire – check out our hire guide.
CEREMONY DECORATIONS – ARCH, URNS, CHAIR BACKS AND LANTERNS
A beautiful backdrop was created with the purest white drapes for an elegant arch with large urns with a mass of foliage and white blooms. The bride and groom chair backs including a pheasant feather added a touch of whimsy. Lanterns down the aisle added a magical light and a lush foliage and floral garland decorated the registry table.
FOLIAGE GARLANDS – WINTER WEDDING WITH LONG TABLES
The long tables were decorated with foliage garlands in tiny vases with delicate blooms. Candlesticks ran the length of the tables giving off elegant light.
The seating plan had a touch of foliage, softest white roses and pheasant feathers.
We loved working with Katie, her dearest mum and family on the styling and flowers for her wedding. There were so many beautiful touches chosen by the family to make the day so memorable. Love to you all and thank you for sharing these wonderful memories of your day.
Hampton Manor is our closest venue, just a stone’s throw from our studio in Berswell and we always love a Hampton Manor wedding.
CREAM ROSE BRIDAL BOUQUET – ELEGANT WEDDING FLOWERS
Cream rose bridal bouquets epitomise an elegant bride and with avalanche roses and touches of delicate astilbe and touches of grey dusty miller they add a little twist to the day.
BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS IN CRYSTAL VASES – ELEGANT WEDDING FLOWERS
A great idea for a gift for bridesmaids is to present their bouquets in beautiful crystal vases finished with a small photo frame with a photo of the bride with their besties. A lovely keepsake from the wedding day.
CREAM ROSE BUTTON HOLES ON SILVER TRAYS
Elegant cream rose button holes look good presented on silver trays for the boys to hand out.
ELEGANT CEREMONY FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR
An all white and cream display for the ceremony is always fresh and elegant.
We love Hampton Manor weddings and were delighted to have free rein to decorate the sumptuous Elizabeth’s Court for the autumn wedding fair. We enjoyed meeting a number of wedding couples and showing them how they could decorate the venue to suit their wedding style and season.
Since then we have been busy meeting with couples at our studio at Home Farm in Berkswell where we have an ever expanding range of vases, vessels and large scale props to make your wedding day your own.
TOP TABLE GARLANDS
At your wedding reception all eyes are on the top table so make a statement with your florals as these will be captured in your photos of the speeches on the day. We love decorating the Butchers Block table with an abundance of mixed foliage with flowers and added textures. For this look we added roses, brunia and air plants for great texture. Elegant silver candlesticks complete the look.
White, grey and green and a perfect choice for an elegant wedding whatever the season for a timeless look. For a spring take on this we would include some white tulips and ranunulus in the design. There is always a choice of flower to add to create a great look with the season and your wedding colours in mind.
Add interest to the place settings with a pocketful of delicate astrantia nestled in the napkin. Posy vases by the place settings also add a welcome personal touch.
ELEGANT TALL BRONZE VASE CENTREPIECES – PEACH ROSES WHITE HYDRANGEAS
Metallics are still hot news and look oh so stunning at the Manor, this look is perfect for an overstated elegant look with a bit of glitz and glamour. See how the tall bronze vases goes so well with the stunning chandelier in the room. We always look to tie in your wedding decor with the room and your bespoke theme. Peach roses and cream hydrangea brought out the warmth to this look.
Team with gold and bronze lower vases running along the table and add gold rimmed glasses for an elegant look. The glass charger plates keep this fresh and contemporary.
Photo frames in opulent metallic finish add a finishing touch to the tablescape. If using the sprig table layout at Hampton Manor make sure you have interest running along the table, use candles and lanterns to add to the romance.
If you are planning a room layout with round tables you could consider using a mix of different centrepieces around the room. Perhaps a stunning tall bronze vase on a central table and lanterns surrounded by gorgeous blooms on others, with an abundant mix of gold and bronze vases on another. By keeping to the same blooms the look remains cohesive and easy on the eye but becomes a talking point amongst your guests.
STONE URN CENTREPIECS BRONZE CANDLESTICKS AND BOTTLES
Rustic woodland settings work so well at Hampton Manor and can be started with the ceremony in The Birches. The stone vases and urns create great centrepieces and bring a sense of naturalness to the tables. The stone in the courtyard was our inspiration for this look. For a winter wedding we have included touches of grey brunia and eucalyptus and added bronze candelsticks and bronze bottles with bloooms along the table.
For the place settings a slate place card holder looks just right with torn edge paper and a calligraphy name card. Its the little details that take your wedding from great to amazing.
Add texture with a luxe linen grey runner to bring the table to life and glass charger plates to perfect the look.
ELEGANT TALL GLASS VASES – PEACH AND CREAM ROSES
We love elegant tall glass vases and wanted to show one of our latest designs at Hampton Manor. This elevated design could form a centrepiece to a long table design with a mix of smaller glass vases and glass candlesticks running along the table. They can also be used to add drama to the Parlour for exclusive use weddings or to create a stunning top table design.
Details for this design included our salt cellar place names with a snippet of waxfower set on a glass charger plate. The elegance continues with the glass candle sticks and glass footed vases.

We just love it when a bride requests peonies and they are in season. These fluffy pink peonies were just perfect for a summer wedding at Hampton Manor.

HYDRANGEA AND PEONY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The elegant mirror table plan had a luxe garland of blooms to decorate.

I love this idea for preserving your wedding bouquet. Amy’s bridesmaids organised a beautiful paper weight which is a treasured gift and reminder of her wedding day.
Hampton Manor is one of our favourite local wedding venues, we are so lucky it’s 10 minutes down the road from our floral studio and workshop.

The bridal bouquet was a large mix of peach avalanche roses and hydrangea. Ian, always so thoughtful, surprised his wife on their first anniversary and asked me to create a bouquet for her with the same mix of flowers. What a happy wife he has.
PEACH ROSE BUTTON HOLES
Peach and ivory avalanche roses were worn by the men.
HANGING APOTHECARY BOTTLES OUTSIDE THE CEREMONY
The Birches is set in a woodland part of the Hampton Manor Estate and hanging apothecary bottles look great hanging from the trees.
THE BIRCHES – WEDDING CEREMONY FLOWERS & DECORATIONS
The Birches suits rustic elegant styling with its large wooden doors, logs and wooden floor. We added candles with moss down the aisle and a mix of vases and vessels. We have an ever expanding selection which our couples can choose from when they meet at our new workshop in Berkswell. That way their wedding is personal to them.
NATURAL DELPHINIUM PETAL CONFETTI
Natural freeze dried confetti is beautifully scented and perfect for that confetti moment. Make sure you have some waiting in a basket at the ceremony location.
