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
Here at Passion for Flowers we have a 6’6″ birch wedding ceremony arch available for hire. For a rustic wedding in a barn, tipi or outdoors this would make a beautiful backdrop as you tie the knot. Please get in touch if you would like to include our birch arch in your wedding ceremony decorations. POA.
BIRCH WEDDING CEREMONY ARCH
Our 6’6 birch arch is perfect for rustic style weddings. The birch structure can be hired ‘naked’ or dressed with flowers. We think it looks stunning with white material draped over the birch and a floral touch to the corners. Go all out and use our birch stumps and candles around the base for a dreamy candle lit ceremony.
Here at Passion for Flowers we now have a 2m moongate round ceremony arch available for hire. Please get in touch if you would like to include this in your wedding ceremony floral decorations. POA.
MOONGATE / ROUND WEDDING ARCH FOR CEREMONY BACKDROPS
Our circular arch or moongate makes a gorgeous backdrop. The full circle can be decorated with foliage and flowers, with a 2m diameter this makes a real statement. The moongate can be used as a backdrop for your wedding ceremony, a backdrop to your top table, dessert table or used behind the bar or statement area at your venue.
Hampton Manor is a beautiful place to tie the knot at any time of year but certainly comes into its own in the winter months. We loved creating flowers for the adorable Katie and Matt for their December wedding.
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
Katie’s excitement continued as she walked across to the Birches for her winter wedding ceremony, proudly let by Dad.
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.
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.

TOP TABLE WEDDING FLOWERS
CAKE TABLE FLORAL DECORATIONS
The large wooden table benefits from the addition of some lovely florals in glass vases and of course the bridal bouquets.
Thank you to Joanne and Josh for sharing these beautiful images from their photographer Richard Shepherd.
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. We will be decorating Elizabeth’s Court at their upcoming wedding fayre and can’t wait to show a beautiful selection of floral designs on long tables as well as a top table.
This is the perfect opportunity to come and meet us and see our floral creations.
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.
For a recent brochure shoot at Hampton Manor we created a modern elegant and sleek bouquet for the bride. This bouquet was created from grasses and calla lilies for a very elegant look.
ELEGANT MODERN BRIDAL BOUQUET
The rest of the shoot was centered around modern geometric wedding styling, we used copper and white colours for an elegant look. Our copper terrariums and bud vases mixed with the white vases look stunning set up on the ladders, just love this shot of them.
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.
SPRING WEDDING CEREMONY IDEAS FOR HAMPTON MANOR
Stone urns filled with an abundance of eucalypatus, blossom and tulips create a natural frame for a spring wedding ceremony at Hampton Manor. The cool, fresh look of the room is enhanced with hurricane lamps filled with moss, white and green flowers and foliage and stone vases and vessels for a natural palette.
SPRING WEDDING CEREMONY TABLE FLOWERS
Create a romantic look for the spring wedding ceremony table with delicate vases and vessels with ranunculus,anemones and broom.
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.
At the end of October Passion for Flowers transformed The Birches, Hampton Manor’s wedding ceremony barn, into a woodland rustic wedding ceremony setting for their Wedding Fair. We wanted to style the barn for an Autumn woodland wedding ceremony, below are just a few photos, by Fjona Wei-Ling. More photos to follow shortly.
WOODLAND RUSTIC WEDDING CEREMONY AT HAMPTON MANOR
To line the aisle we placed a couple of stacked tree slices with a mix of moss, succulents and candles to create a woodland walkway for the bride to walk towards her groom. At the end of the aisle where the couple stand to say their vows and promises we wanted to create a woodland area to frame the couple.
The woodland wedding arbour to frame the couple as they say their vows and promises was a mix of moss, foliage, wax flower, amaranthus and roses. At the base we used large tree stumps in varying sizes covered in moss and succulents with the addition of candle light to add a rustic glow to the area.
A garland was laid on the floor in a semi circle for the couple to stand inside when they say their vows.
For the Wedding Fair we also showed our wooden wedding favour cart, which we hire out to our couples. This was filled with jam wedding favours and popcorn favours. Our chalkboard signs were hung over chairs to give couples more ideas for decorating the wedding ceremony barn.
Karen delivered an inspiration session at Hampton Manor’s wedding fair, helping couples work with the seasons for their wedding. Our set of vintage ladders was used to hold jam jars filled with flowers and foliage from different seasons.
