Charlotte and Chris chose the elegant setting of the Adams Hall at Compton Verney for their wedding. It is always a pleasure to work with the team at Compton Verney, fellow award winners in The Wedding Industry Awards.

CHAPEL DESIGNERS LONDON

Sometimes you have a once in a lifetime opportunity…

I had just such an opportunity in April and decided to attend the Chapel Designers Conference London 2015. This amazing event was put together by floral rockstar Holly Heider Chapple founder of Chapel Designers with the help of Nick Priestly of Mood Flowers.

From the moment we all gathered for drinks in the aptly named The Rose pub to our final tearful moments leaving Simon Lycett’s studio 3 days later we made lifelong friends.  Love of all things floral binds us together and allows this esteemed group of Chapel Designers to nourish and grow. I am honoured to be part of this family of florists from around the world.

chapel designers uk passion for flowers

We had the most wonderful experience and jawdropping selection of florals to choose from at our base in Brixton East. The love, laughter and emotions we all shared encouraged us to create the most amazing florals.

I am truly grateful for the opportunity to meet so many talented designers. Holly inspired me to create this freeform bouquet.

Jo Flowers and Susanne Hatwood gave us a wonderful masterclass on their romantic, natural style of floral creations both have amazing styles and worked effortlessly to create delightful masterpieces. The compote design above I created after being inspired by their designs.

Rhona Wheeldon of Flowerona joined us for a session on Social Media and is was a highlight to meet her and gain some insights to the world of social media.

The photos below are a snapshot of instagram photos and offer an insight into the amazing times we shared. A masterclass from Robbie Honey who created the dramatic rose and eucalyptus urn, an inspiring behind the scenes visit to Simon Lycett’s studio and so much more.

HAIR FLOWERS & HANGING FLOWERS – BROOKLYN INSPIRED WEDDING

hand held floral arch for bride and groom

Every now and then time stops still to celebrate a wonderful marriage of two people so in love. I first met Ellie and Matt when they were down in Birmingham looking at venues for their wedding. They had strong ideas on the feel they hoped to create and took time to find venues and their wedding team.

The Oratory was such a special place for the wedding ceremony and for their initmate gathering of loved ones. In contrast the urban feel of The Church Inn in Birmingham gave us scope to create a great backdrop for their wedding celebrations. They loved the Brooklyn Inspired feel of urban places. Throughout the planning Ellie was happy to let us offer advice and we worked together beautifully to create this amazing moment in time.

We were thrilled to see this wedding featured on Love My Dress recently too.

HAIR FLOWERS

The bridesmaids wore beautiful white dresses individually chosen and we created loose half flower crowns for their hair flowers. Simple, understated but elegant bringing in soft blues, nude, white and stronger purple tones. The hair was styled by our friend Natalie at Bridal Hair Specialists.

WRIST CORSAGES

For a simple but stunning look the girls wore beautifully created wrist corsages keeping to the tones of the day, with astrantia, wax flower and snippets of garden greenery. Ellie looked stunning in her Sarah Willard Couture designed dress.

BRIDAL BOUQUET

Ellie’s bridal bouquet was designed with her dress and personal style in mind. I love brides giving us freedom to work our magic on their flowers and Ellie fell in love with her bridal bouquet. This loose hand tied design included clematis to trail, a mix of roses, astrantia, lilac, tulips, wax flower, amni and helebores with a mix of garden forages for added texture. I just love her gloves to complete her look.

BUTTONHOLES

The button holes were a mix of quicksand roses, wax flower, some with delicate blue snippets of hydrangea. I love this image of Matt with his button hole.

CHURCH DECORATION – CANDLES DOWN THE AISLE

The Oratory is an amazing space and candles down the aisle in all shapes and sizes create the perfect look. It felt like an Italian church with the wonderful architecture and we decided that flowers in church would not do it justice and agreed with Ellie and Matt to go all out for candlelight. The service was so personal and on entering the church the magic and love could be felt.

HAND HELD ARCH

Love this idea for a hand held arch for the couple.

HANGING FLOWERS

For the gathering after the formal part of the day Ellie knew she wanted hanging flowers to create a wow factor over the drinks table and as a backdrop to speeches and photos. An exhuberant mix of trailing foliage, large hydrangea blooms, trailing amaranthus, tulips threaded through the frame and scented wax flowers brought the room to life.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS AND DE BEERS DIAMOND RINGS

passion for flowers and de beers diamond rings

Well every girl loves diamonds and flowers. What an amazing combo. One of this years highlights has been the opportunity to create a dreamy bouquet for a shoot with De Beers Diamond rings. Who better for them to choose as a style icon than the amazing Charlotte of Rock My Wedding. See Charlotte’s mood board here.

The diamonds were exquisite and we created a bouquet with a quintessential English feel and fragrance with roses and lilac.

FLOWERS FOR A FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY – TWINKLE TWINKLE

flowers for a first birthday party twinkle twinkle mabel oshea (1)

We all love birthday parties and imagine my delight at talking with Charlotte (founder of Rock My Wedding) about a very special first birthday party. I was happy to offer a mix of soft feminine flowers for such a beautiful baby girl and her amazing mum. Charlotte chose a pink and grey soft palette and we sourced  scented lilac, softest David Austin Kiera roses and blousy Quicksand roses and left the rest to her.

We also have a great selection of props and were happy to loan our drinks dispensers and crates which Charlotte styled on the gorgeous tea table. A selection of wicked drinks and sumptuous cakes finished the look.

Another beautiful wedding from our blog archives that we thought you might not have seen. Isobel and Ed were married back in May 2013 the ceremony was held at Princethorpe College and then on to Park Farm in Upper Shuckburgh for the reception. The couple were after a country garden rustic inspired wedding with pretty flowers, hessian, twine, fruit crates and straw bales.

COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING FLOWERS

At our consultation we highlighted a number of flowers which we would use throughout the day, these included peonies, hydrangeas in cream, pink and blue, avalanche and sweet avalanche roses, wax flower, gyposphila with eucalyptus. The choice of flowers offered a great mix of soft rounded shapes and texture for contrast to create the country garden rustic look they were after.

COUNTRY GARDEN BRIDAL BOUQUET

Isobel’s bridal bouquet was a handtied mix of country garden flowers, she had beautiful pink peonies, white peonies, blush pink roses with highlights of wax flower, gypsophila and astilbe. We used an off cut of lace from her dress to wrap the handle of the bouquet so it tied in with her dress perfectly, pinned onto the bouquet handle was a stunning brooch that belonged to her Granny.

COLOURFUL BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The bridesmaids wore colourful dresses, all six bridesmaids had a different coloured dress which worked well for this relaxed style of wedding. For each bridesmaid we created a bouquet which complimented her dress. The bouquets were all made from a mix of hydrangeas and roses with extra foliage and flowers for textures, we used different colours of hydrangeas and roses for each of the girls. The bouquet handles were all wrapped with hessian and raffia to create a relaxed country feel.

COUNTRY GARDEN WEDDING FLOWERS IN THE MARQUEE

At Park Farm there was a lovely set up of tipis, hay bales covered in cosy blankets and the main marquee to welcome guests. We focused our floral decorations in the main marquee.

The marquee was filled with colourful country bunting strung from the roof with paper pom poms and lanterns hanging down at various points, this created a real wow factor was guests walked into the marquee for the first time. On the tables we laid out our hessian runners and squares of hessian over the linen cloths to create more interest.

The top table had a central arrangement which sat in front of the bride and groom, running along the length of the table were a mix of bottles filled with flowers of the day. The bride and her bridesmaids wanted to get involved with decorating so did these bottles themselves as well as hanging up hearts around the marquee and other finishing touches.

pink peonies in bottles

The guest tables had a country rustic cream jug placed on a hessian square, we used a mix of hydrangeas, wax flower, peonies, roses, gyp and eucalyptus in these which smelt divine. We tied raffia around the jugs which the table number was pegged onto. Isobel had collected candles and tea lights to scatter around the tables.

COUNTRY GARDEN TABLE PLAN

We made Isobel and Ed’s wedding table plan from white washed wooden crates which we hung small silver buckets from and filled with peonies, roses and wax flower. Each bucket represented a different table and had a list of the guests names tied to the front of it.

CORAL WEDDING FLOWERS |PEONIES & ROSES, BOUQUETS & CENTREPIECES

coral-wedding-bouquets-peonies-roses

Another wedding from our blog archives today. These coral wedding flowers are some of our most popular images on pinterest, you really love the coral peonies and roses used in the bridal bouquets and country jugs. So we thought we’d share it again so our newer couples have a chance to see it. Scroll down to see more from this wedding at Moxhull Hall.

CORAL WEDDING FLOWERS AT MOXHULL HALL

At Passion for Flowers we love a bit of colour and one of our summer favourites was the gorgeous wedding captured by Jo Hastings Photography. We loved creating coral wedding flowers at Moxhull Hall. Our bride Emma was looking for a country garden vintage inspired wedding perfect for her church wedding and reception at Moxhull Hall. I just love the romantic photos captured here of Emma and Johnny in the gardens.

CORAL BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ CORAL PEONIES & ROSES

Emma’s coral bridal bouquet was a soft mixed bouquet with wonderfully open Coral charm peonies, roses, snippets of hydrangea, dahlia, veronica and dahlias for texture. The bridesmaids held smaller bouquets with a similar mix of blooms just perfect for such a bright sunshiny day.

CORAL ROSE BUTTON HOLES

The button holes tied in to the coral country garden wedding with coral ‘Miss Piggy’ roses with the groom’s having an added touch of pittosporum and spray rose.

CORAL WEDDING FLOWERS ~ JUGS ON VINTAGE BOOKS

Emma and her Mum had worked on lots of extra details for their vintage inspired country garden wedding and we incorporated one of their travel table names into each arrangement. The tables looked relaxed and inviting with a large vintage jug overflowing with a country garden mix of coral peonies, roses, hydrangeas. Make sure you add some greenery into country garden flowers to make them more relaxed and in keeping with the time of year, I find it refreshing in the heat of the summer and it adds depth to the arrangement and the photos. Each table had vintage books to give extra height and small crystal vases or jugs with extra blooms. The bridal party bouquets were also displayed in jugs to be enjoyed throughout the reception.

Emma knew that flowers were an important part of her wedding day and we spent time together going through the alternative looks and flowers available to ensure she was delighted with the final result on her wedding day.

HOW TO MAKE A FLOWER CROWN – STEP BY STEP

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

Ever wondered how to make one of those pretty flower crowns you often see brides and bridesmaids wearing in our weddings? Well here you go, we have put together a step by step guide so you can learn how to make them. This is another of our DIY tutorials we have done in collaboration with Rock My Wedding, see more of our DIY floral guides here.

HOW TO MAKE A FLOWER CROWN

For this example floral crown we have used a mix of roses in nude and pink colours in different sizes as well as wax flower for texture. You can use any flowers for this, the larger the flower heads the less you will need, we suggest using flowers that will be used elsewhere in your wedding and in your bouquet.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

YOU WILL NEED

  • Quicksand Roses
  • Sweet Avalanche Roses
  • Bombastic spray Roses
  • Roll of florists’ tape
  • Wax Flower
  • Vendela Roses
  • Fine gauge silver florists’ 32 gauge wire and
  • Medium gauge 56 or 71 wire

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

1. Measure the head of the bride or person wearing the crown. The easiest way to do this is by using a piece of string. Add an additional 4cm to the length, these will be used to create hooks to hold it together.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

2. Using the medium guage wire cut this to match the length of the string, then cover it in florists tape.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

3. Select your flowers. For the roses cut the stems just below the flower head and push wire up through the centre of the stem. Add silver wire horizontally through the stem and twist it to secure with the main wire.

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

4. Cover all the wires with tape, stretching the tape and pulling it as you wind around the wire to keep it as thin as possible. (no need to wire the wax flower)

6. Once you have done this for all the flowers you are going to use in your flower crown you can start adding them to the longer piece of tape covered wire you prepared in step 2. Working from one end, place the first flower and fasten to the circlet wire with florists tape, wrapping it around the wires to make sure it is secure, then add another flower and another. Try alternate the flowers on either side of the wire for a natural look and make sure large and small roses are interspersed with the wax flower for texture.

GREY WHITE AND GOLD WEDDING FLOWERS | GLAMOROUS NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING

candelabra-wedding-flowers-in-church

We are going to start re-publishing some of our most loved weddings that feature in our blog archives, our old blog doesn’t get a lot of views any more and we think it’s a big shame that our newer couples don’t get to see some of our favourite weddings from the past couple of years. If you are planning a glamorous wedding with touches of white, grey and gold wedding flowers you will love Amy and Huw’s New Years Eve wedding.

top table wedding flower garland full length white grey silver

I first met Amy at the Rock My Wedding Pop Up Shop last year when Lolly introduced us and knew we would be able to help her with her plans for a gorgeous New Years Eve Wedding. Amy and Huw were married in the seclusion of St Paul’s Convent, bringing back lovely memories for her family, and the couple were welcomed with open arms.

The ceremony in the chapel was followed by a sumptuous dinner and party at Edgbaston Golf Club where we helped Amy create a glamorous look for her New Years Eve wedding celebrations.

BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ WHITE, GOLD, IVORY AND GREEN

Flowers were very important to Amy and she wanted a bouquet to suit her elegant lace wedding gown. The bouquet was a mix of white, ivory and gold with touches of green from the eucalyptus. We included touches of gold with hydrangea, artichoke heads and bitter balls perfect with  creamy hydrangea, roses and lisianthus all finished with a luxe gold wrap to the stems.

BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS ~ WHITE AND GOLD WEDDING FLOWERS

Amy had chosen her bridesmaids dresses with a glamour wedding in mind, the girls had wonderful gold dresses and we teamed these with hand tied bouquets of creamy flowers with accents of gold.

FLOWER CROWNS ~ GREY, WHITE AND GOLD

Later in the evening Amy planned a surprise when she changed her veil and head dress for a delicate flower crown. We always love delivering the bridal party flowers on the day when everyone is getting ready and were delighted that Amy was so happy with her flowers.

BUTTON HOLES ~ IVORY & GREY

Huw and the men had button holes of ivory roses with grey dusty miller.The stems were delicately covered with gold ribbon to tie in with the girls bouquets.

THE CEREMONY FLOWERS ~ PEW ENDS & HURRICANE LANTERNS

Flowers in the chapel were a very important part of Amy and Huw’s day and we enjoyed visiting St Paul’s to discuss details together. Hurricane lamps lined the route through the cloisters and down the aisle and provided the candlelight the couple wanted. Eucalyptus in the pew ends added a lovely winter aroma in the chapel.wedding-church-flowers-white-and-green-pew-endswedding-church-flowers-white-hydrangea-pew-ends

 THE CEREMONY FLOWERS ~ LARGE CANDELABRA

For the ceremony we added to the candlelight with large silver candelabra with creamy white flowers and touches of gold and green, the chapel looked resplendent for such a joyous occasion.

RECEPTION FLOWERS ~ LONG TOP TABLE GARLAND GREY, WHITE AND GOLD

With the wedding on New Year’s Eve Amy and Huw wanted to create a glamorous party feel to their wedding celebrations.The gold chairs set the tone and a highlight was the full length garland of flowers to the top table. Mounds of cream hydrangea, roses and touches of gold hydrangea, artichoke heads and grey foliage worked perfectly and as soon as the candles were light the room was ready for Amy and Huw to welcome their family and friends.

RECEPTION FLOWERS ~ GUEST TABLES

Amy and her mum had fun collecting vintage rose bowls, silver candelabra and silver rose bowls for the the guest tables. We loved filling them with gold, cream and grey flowers to continue the glamour look to their New Year’s Eve wedding celebration. A touch of whimsy was added by Amy and Huw, the napkins were in the shape of their pet rabbit Flapjack, who had a special visit from Amy and Huw before they arrived at their reception.
