At Passion for Flowers we love Warwickshire weddings and we were more than delighted when Ben Hanlin (you may know him from Tricked) and Briony Davies asked us to help them style and create the flowers for their circus themed wedding. We worked closely with Ben and Bri on pinterest and circus themed inspiration and what came together on the day was just amazing and beautifully captured by Jo Hastings Photography.
WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – BRIDAL BOUQUET
We created a beautiful scented bridal bouquet for Briony with blousy peonies, roses and highlights of scabious seed heads and Billy Balls perfect for the white and yellow wedding flowers to suit her day.
WHITE & YELLOW WEDDING FLOWERS – BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS
The bridesmaids looked stunning in their nude blush dresses and carried white and yellow wedding flowers with peonies, roses and Billy Balls, finished with ivory ribbon. The wedding was in Tanworth in Arden and the bridal party walked across The Green to the country church in glorious sunshine.
YELLOW BUTTON HOLES
How cool does Ben look with his yellow button hole with Billy Balls, scabious seed heads and touches of eucalyptus. Love the subtle yellow tie.
CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS – RUSTIC CRATES & HEART PEW ENDS
Country churches always look best with country and rustic touches. Rustic crates overflowing with blousy hydrangea, achillea, Billy Balls and eucalyptus welcomed guests to the church and simple hand tied bunches of flowers were added to the heart pew ends. That’s all a country church needs along with a basket brimming with petals to scatter. After the service everyone gathered for drinks on The Green before waving Ben and Briony off in their gorgeous car.
CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING MARQUEE
When we first met and the circus themed wedding was muted I just knew it would be fun. The colours of yellow and white continued from the signs to the ribbons flying in the breeze.
CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING CENTREPIECES – CANDELABRA, GIN BOTTLES & VINTAGE TINS
Briony had collected some fun circus themed containers and animals. We raided our props store to find other items to add to the tables. The aim was to have every table a little bit different with a range of vases and vessels. I love how the candelabra, gin bottles, vintage tins and books came together to create a relaxed fun filled day with the yellow and white flowers finishing the look.
CIRCUS THEMED WEDDING IDEAS
If you are planning a circus themed wedding then how about this amazing Joined at The Hip idea brilliant for photos and fun. Outside the marquee guests had the chance to play on the Coconut Shy, sit in the giant Deckchair and generally enjoy this fun filled day. Did I say it was the hottest day of the year and the sun shone all day on the new Mr and Mrs Hanlin.
