Charlie and Jamie’s wedding this Summer at Hampton Manor was a delight to work on. Here are a few photos from their gorgeous wedding day. These are just a quick sneak peek – more to follow soon hopefully.
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”

Hampton Manor is the most elegant of settings for a wedding and we always love the opportunity to dress Elizabeth’s Court. The spring Wedding Fair gave us the chance to show our tall bronze centrepieces. Thank you to all who visited and to Jonny Barratt for his amazing images.
TALL BRONZE WEDDING CENTREPIECE
A tall wedding centrepiece always has a WOW factor and these bronze stands look elegant on a table in the manor. Lush foliage and large Mejer roses in softest peach, ivory with spray roses add a touch of glam to the tall bronze arrangement. Add in posy vases, candlesticks and tealights to complete the look.
GROUPING OF BRONZE VASES FOR WEDDING CENTREPIECES
As a more relaxed look select a grouping of bronze vases with simple but stunning blooms, here roses mixed with scented jasmine worked a treat. Make sure to add in glass and bronze candlesticks for that extra touch.
TOP TABLE FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR
The wooden butchers block can be used for a small top table. Here we added luxe bronze vases, bronze candlesticks and wooden tree tea lights for a rustic twist to the bronze look. The spring ranunculus are such natural beauties and one of our favourite flowers.
PASSION FOR FLOWERS STAND – ALL PROPS AVAILABLE TO HIRE
We have a new hire guide available to all. The guide shows how to use our props and features a wealth of looks. Our studio in Berkswell houses our props and we are happy to show you the collection when having a consultation. We also had to sneak in the recently published Rock My Wedding book featuring some of our flowers and bouquets as well as our props. Happy days…
WOODLAND SETTING – TREE STUMPS, LANTERNS, FERNS
Our display at the show included a rustic woodland setting with mix of tree stumps, an abundance of ferns and helebores, lanterns and cylinder vases. This display would make a wonderful setting for a ceremony, down the aisle or at the base of a table.
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.
If you have been inspired and are still looking for a florist and stylist for your Hampton Manor Wedding do get in touch we would love to start talking weddings. Our advice is ‘Make sure you choose a florist whose style you love’
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.
PINK AND PEACH BRIDAL BOUQUET – PEONIES AND ROSES
The bridal bouquet was a fragrant mix of peonies, David Austin roses and jasmine with astilbe.
HYDRANGEA AND PEONY BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The bridesmaids carried beautiful hydrangea and peony bouquets.
ROSE BUTTON HOLES AND CORSAGES
The rose button holes and corsages had wax flower, astilbe or jasmine as a finishing touch. Adding name tags to the button holes and corsages makes light work of the handing out of these beauties at the wedding.
HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING CEREMONY
Joanne and Josh were married in the ceremony room at Hampton Manor, The Birches. Posies of fragrant flowers and candles decorated the room.

For an elegant winter wedding there is no better place than Hampton Manor. The team at the Manor are the perfect hosts and we are thrilled to be asked by couples to decorate their weddings with flowers and styling suggestions. Amy and James were married last December in the Birches followed by drinks and canapes in the The Manor and partied with their families and guests in grand style through to the early hours.
BRIDAL BOUQUETS – BLUSH PINK ROSES & DUSTY MILLER
The grey of the dusty miller added just a touch of winter whimsy to the blush bouquets.The fur capes for the girls kept them cosy and warm during the ceremony just the thing for a elegant winter wedding.
ROSE BUTTON HOLES
James and the boys teamed their dinner suits with elegant rose button holes.
CEREMONY FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – ELEGANT FLORAL ARCH
An elegant floral arch was the backdrop to the ceremony in The Birches, the eucalyptus was also included in the chair backs adding a wintery scent to the room.
ELEGANT CENTERPIECES AT HAMPTON MANOR – SILVER CANDELABRA WITH BLUSH PINK ROSES TRAILING DESIGN
Candelabra are oh so elegant especially when decorated with a full trailing design including a lush mix of blush pink roses. We added highlights of grey brunia combined with the eucalyptus for a wintry touch to the decor. The head table featured a tall silver candelabra with an abundance of blush roses and the softest of blooms teamed with vases of scented blooms, mercury tea lights and silver candlesticks. The elegant mirror table plan had a luxe garland of blooms to decorate.
FLOWER PRESERVATION GIFT – PAPER WEIGHT
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.
Yolande and Ian married at Hampton Manor with a ceremony in The Birches and reception in Elizabeth’s Court. Richard Shepherd captured the romance of their wedding beautifully.
PEACH AND WHITE BRIDAL BOUQUET – PEACH AVALANCHE ROSES & HYDRANGEAS
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.
THE RECEPTION DECORATIONS – HAMPTON MANOR
CENTREPIECES – GROUPING OF GLASS AND SILVER VASES
Groupings work well for an informal layout with a variety of vases and vessels in differing heights.
As we regularly work at Hampton Manor we love it when new changes are made to venues. Hampton Manor have recently enhanced the outdoor area next to Elizabeth’s Court. There is a new seating area for guests to relax which would be lovely on a summers evening.
Have a look at the new seating area we recently styled with copper vases, pretty blooms lanterns, candles and sparklers. Doesn’t it look magical.
At Passion for Flowers we love working on Hampton Manor weddings. Hampton Manor is only about 10 minutes away from our studio so we often find ourselves working on weddings at this beautiful venue. Being a recommended wedding florist at Hampton Manor we were delighted to be involved in a shoot for their new brochure.
If you are including bronze in your wedding colours you will love these new tall bronze vases we have added to our collection of vases. Here we have shown how they look with classic white flowers and a contrast to show how they look with bright pink florals to tie in with the chairs often used at Hampton Manor.
TALL BRONZE VASES FOR CENTREPIECES WITH CLASSIC WHITE FLOWERS
Here we have used white hydrangeas and pale pink lilac with snippets of eucalyptus to create a larger arrangement within the stunning Elizabeth’s Court. To add candle light at a lower level on the table we have included our bronze candle sticks and bronze votives.
TALL BRONZE VASES FOR CENTREPIECES WITH PINK BLOSSOM
We just love using blossom within our floral creations when it is in season, and this pink blossom was just perfect for a brighter centrepiece at Hampton Manor. The pink really ties in with the pink chairs often used in Elizabeth’s Court. Again we have used bronze candle sticks and votives to create interest at the lower level.
These two different centrepieces use the same vase but demonstrate how they can look completely different using different flowers, colours and textures in the arrangements.
To tie in with the pink and bronze centrepiece we decorated the top table with a run of bronze vases with pink blossom and a mix of different bronze votives.
A wedding from our archives today. This spring wedding at Hampton Manor was so pretty, with blush pink Sweet Avalanche Roses and lots of mercury silver details.
Lotty and Dan were married at Hampton Church in April, very local to Passion for Flowers and a short walk through the gardens to Hampton Manor. What a perfect setting for a spring wedding. Over the months we met with Lotty and her mum to prepare ideas and to create the look for Lotty and Dan’s romantic pastel pink and mercury silver wedding at Hampton Manor. Lotty runs a dance school and wanted to use the Beauty and The Beast fairytale as a thread running through her wedding. We agreed on pastel pink roses as the key blooms mixed with touches of white and ivory and lots of sparkle and candlelight.
PASTEL PINK & CREAM ROSE BRIDALBOUQUET
Lotty had a gorgeous lace wedding dress and so we created a romantic feminine bouquet in blush pinks a complete change from her everyday image.Touches of hydrangea softened the look.
PASTEL PINK & CREAM ROSE BOUQUETS FOR BRIDESMAIDS
With 5 bridesmaids in soft pink dresses the look continued with the softest of rose bouquets hand tied with lace to complement Lotty’s dress. I love their jewel encrusted belts bringing a touch more glamour and sparkle to the day.
PASTEL PINK ROSE BUTTON HOLES
Dan and the boys had pastel pink rose button holes whilst we used the same tones for larger sweet avalanche roses for the ladies. Everything was soft, pink and romantic for this wedding day. With so many button holes it is important to make sure they have name tags to help with the distribution on the wedding day.
PEW ENDS ~ HAMPTON CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS
The wooden pews had simple pew ends blush and soft pink roses hand tied with a sprig of pittosporum and lace. After the service everyone walked back through to the Manor gardens and had a great chance for some photos. I just love the one with the bridal party Rebecca shot.
MERCURY SILVER & PASTEL PINK ROSES ~ A WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR
The richness of the mercury silver with the pastel pink roses looked majestic at Hampton Manor. The long top table had the most romantic collection of mercury silver items, candlesticks in a variety of heights with white candles, large hurricane vases and a mix of different shaped and sized mercury silver bottles with filled with soft pastel pink roses. The guest tables had a touch of whimsy with the key to the castle, lots of candlelight and roses in gorgeous bottles in the glass domes. Mini glass domes were added to the top table to link the look. As the candles were lit the romance blossomed.
VINTAGE ROSES IN CHINA TEA CUPS & GLASS BOWLS ~ A WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR
Lotty wanted to incorporate some of her grandma’s rosebud china to the room and it looked soft and romantic on the large wooden display table with the cakes, vintage roses in glass rose bowls and a collection of beautiful boxes.

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.
PEACH BUTTON HOLE
Richard wore a lovely peach rose button hole which looked perfect against his suit jacket and tied in perfectly to Victoria’s bouquet.
PEACH AND PINK BOUQUETS WITH TRAILING RIBBONS
The bridesmaids wore celadon mint green dresses, their bouquets were a smaller version of the bridal bouquet with trailing ribbons.
PEACH FLOWER CROWN
After the church service Victoria changed to wearing a flower crown of mixed summer flowers including peach garden roses which totally suited her relaxed day and vintage country garden style.
