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.
If you are looking for inspiration for your wedding do get in touch. Karen x
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 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.
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.
