Suspended Arch Flowers Backdrop

suspended floral backdrop top table

Arches elevate a simple wedding to another level and bring beauty and joy to all wedding celebrations. As one of our recent brides said it is all about the arch.  A new and inspirational idea is a floating arch which creates an illusion of magic for your wedding backdrop. If you are looking for magic then this is a great choice for your wedding.

Candles add romance to every wedding so make sure you include them on your wedding list if you are looking for a romantic look which will be captured on all your wedding photos. We love the finishing touches lighting the candles just before our couples see their wedding flowers for the first time. It is such a joyous moment, make sure you ask your planner to let you have a sneak peak of the room together before you enter for the wedding breakfast.

The flowers chosen here are an amazing mix of peach, pink and pops of deeper orange, so if you are looking for some colour for your wedding backdrop this would be great for you.  And for each and every wedding we can create just the arch for you in colours and textures you will love. We would love to create a beautiful day for you to remember so please do get in touch.

Enchanted Winter Wedding Hampton Manor. Part 2

Winter wedding flowers Hampton Manor

This winter wedding at Hampton Manor was a delight from start to finish. With so many amazing floral features. We have posted part 1 (the bouquets and deconstructed arch at Hampton in Arden church). Now we bring you Rachel and James and their stunning winter reception at Hampton Manor. The Courtyard was transformed by candlelight,flowers and foliage. Guests entered an enchanted winter wonderland for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. The room felt warm and full of love as guests and family celebrated together.

Tall Gold Stands & Candles for an Enchanted Winter Wedding at Hampton Manor

Our brief for the Courtyard was elegant,dreamy and candlelit. The Courtyard tables were filled with a mix of white candles running the full length of the tables. Relaxed foliage softened the tables whilst tall gold stands bedecked with foliage and the softest of blooms added richness and elegance to the scene. The deconstructed arch from church was moved and then rebuilt and extended to create the most amazing backdrop to the top table, our team worked tirelessly to transform this into an Enchanted Winter Wedding at Hampton Manor.

Thanks Karen

We cannot believe how the flowers both at the Church and Hampton Manor formed the most beautiful backdrop to the whole day – even in my planning dreams I couldn’t have foreseen how perfectly you and your team would deliver for us!!!

It was a dull dreary damp December day brought to life by all those who took part and supported us on that day. It was truly magical and I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Big Hugs xx

Enchanted Winter Wedding Hampton Manor. Part 1

Winter weddings can be so dreamy, this wedding took place just before Christmas. Hampton Manor is the perfect setting for a winter wedding, it doesn’t matter what the weather is doing outside, the house is magical, fires will be lit to keep you cosy and we can really help you to transform The Courtyard into an enchanted winter wonderland (see part 2).

The bride Rachel and her bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning in their blush dresses, we created bouquets with scented roses in blush and nude. The whole look was one of elegance, the colours being soft and tonal. The flowers included Earl Grey roses, quicksand and akito roses.

Deconstructed Arch Hampton in Arden Church

In the family’s words ‘It’s All about the Arch’. So that was our brief and what our amazing team created. This arch brought magic to the church in winter and created the most stunning backdrop for Rachel and James to exchange their vows.

I loved the message from our bride Rachel and her kind gift on the wedding morning. As Rachel and James are based overseas her lovely Mum Mandy and I had been working together on this beautiful wedding. Nothing was left to chance for this special couple and their loving family.

Huge Thanks

Thanks for all the planning and plotting with Mum over the last 12 months. I have been looking forward to seeing my bouquet and all the wonderful things you two have been discussing. I have always loved Marianne’s wedding flowers that you create for her and dreamed one day I would have similar. Big thanks and wishing you and your team a lovely Christmas. Rachel

Ragley Hall Wedding Florist Candelabra Passion for Flowers

I love the chance to create new designs at venues I love. Last weekend I attended Ragley Hall wedding Showcase and created 4 different table designs as well as one of my favourite deconstructed arches. This grand elegant venue calls out for wow factor florals. See my designs below.

Candelabra Centrepieces – Ragley Hall

I used 2 heights of silver candelabra, 1m candelabra which are my go-to size of candelabra for wedding centrepieces but as the ceilings are so high at Ragley the room can take our 5′ candelabra on the tables for a real wow factor centrepiece.

The room benefits from tall centrepieces, for a more wild and natural look I used my gold stand and decorated with flowers, foliage and twigs to the base as well as top.

For a low centrepiece I loved creating this floral ring around 3 cylinder vases, you could alternate tall and low centrepieces on your tables.

Asymmetric Deconstructed Arches – Learning with Sabine Darrall

Wedding styles are always evolving and we have been creating deconstructed arches for a number of our weddings over the last year or so. To learn a few more tricks of the trade especially creating with no floral foam I enjoyed a couple of days with Sabine Darrall earlier this year. These images show the beauty we can create. Personally, I love the natural green and white of the first image perfect for a foliage-filled wedding.

Foliage green white deconstructed arch wedding ceremony asymmetric design no foam Passion for Flowers 

I just love this romantic look with the combination of the softest blush pink roses, scented lilac , amelanchier and blousy hydrangeas perfect for a spring wedding.

Winter Wedding at Hampton Manor – Foliage & Candles

Wild foliage winter wedding bouquets Passion for Flowers

Last winter we were lucky enough to be involved in this stunning winter wedding at Hampton Manor. We were thrilled to see it featured recently on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings Blog too. Hannah and Adam were married late November so opted for an enchanted forest winter wedding.

Enchanted Forest Winter Ceremony Backdrop

Hannah’s large wild bouquet was predominantly foliage with touches of deep red and featured protea and trailing ribbons. Candles in glass cylinders lined the aisle and we created a backdrop to frame the couple as they said their I Do’s.

Long Guest Tables Winter Wedding Styling

Within Elizabeth’s Court we added touches of floral decor all around. We decorated the bespoke table plan and provided gold vases for the bouquets to sit in during the meal to create extra floral decorations. We laid foliage down the length of the tables with candles spread out for a romantic wintery glow.

Low Centrepieces – Footed Bowls Along Long Tables

Elegant footed bowl wedding centrepieces by Passion for Flowers Hampton Manor wedding florist

Not every centrepice has to be tall, in fact more and more of our couples are opting for low centrepieces. Low doesn’t mean any less WOW, footed bowls can look stunning on tables and I often design them with flowers cascading over the brim for a really full look.

At Hampton Manor I recently showed some spring designs in footed bowls. I displayed the same designs on both the bare wooden tables and clothed tables, deciding whether or not you have linen on your tables can really transform the look of the room so this is a great way to see how the same centrepiece can look different simply based on the linen and chairs.

Low Footed Bowls – A Classic Look

For the more traditional, classic look I placed 3 low centrepieces down the length of the table. Bronze candlesticks, vases and tealight holders filled in the spaces between the footed bowls for an elegant look. Hampton Manor had clothed the tables and used their Chiavari chairs for a more classic look.

Low Footed Bowls – A Rustic / Industrial Look

Here I have used the same design footed bowls, candlesticks and bronze vases but this time they are displayed on Hampton Manor’s new wooden tables and leather chairs. You can see how the bare tables really transform the look for a more rustic/industrial vibe. Both options are available at Hampton Manor.

Co-ordinating Top Table Design

To co-ordinate the room the top table had one low footed bowl in the centre with loose foliage laid along the length of the table as well as bronze candlesticks and tealights.

Full Length Table Garlands – Long Table Centrepieces

Long tables wedding flower garlands rustic barn wedding ideas

If you have chosen long guest tables you just can’t beat the classic look of a garland flowing the entire length of the table. I created these garlands for Hampton Manor’s recent wedding fair on their new wooden tables, which I just love.

For this design I opted for no floral foam, using a mix of foliage, roses, ranunculus and spring blooms down the length of the table. Candlesticks were entwined into the design and to finish off the wooden tables I added a natural cotton table runner and brass name place settings. If you love this idea but have chosen round tables we could still incorporate this into your table design.

Free Form Urn Designs – Pink Peach & Green

Karen Morgan Passion for Flowers urn floral designs

Most of our wedding work includes a statement urn or two, either for the church or ceremony, close to a top table or as a feature by a staircase. This style of arrangement is often the first look at your wedding and is a beautiful piece to be photographed by or enjoyed by guests.  I loved creating this free form urn design using no floral foam and keeping our weddings more eco-friendly.  This natural mix was expertly captured for me by the talented Sabine Darrall whose courses I would highly recommend.

Catie’s elegant wedding dress suited a neat, trailing bouquet. Natural flowers we included were a mix of roses, lisianthus, petite larch cones, and sprigs of eucalyptus to add a trail to the bouquet. Her choice of bouquet was also dear to her as her mother carried an elegant trailing bouquet at her own wedding.

Organic Style Wedding Arch – Asymmetric Doorway Florals by Passion for Flowers

Organic style wedding arch asymmetric doorway florals by Passion for Flowers.jpg

This gorgeous wooden door at Hampton Manor is in the main dining room of Elizabeth’s Court. I’ve been eyeing it up for ages wanting to create something gorgeous and floral around it to make even more of a statement than it already is.

At the most recent wedding fair, I created this asymmetric arch style floral display – which isn’t an arch at all! We loved out final creation and guests just loved it. Many Hampton Manor couples use this door as a photo backdrop so florals would certainly enhance this setting.

The 2 floral posts could be used anywhere, often we create something similar at an entrance to a church or between large pillars and arches within venues.
