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.
HAMPTON MANOR WEDDING CEREMONY

A wedding from our archives today. This spring wedding at Hampton Manor was so pretty, with blush pink Sweet Avalanche Roses and lots of mercury silver details.
Lotty and Dan were married at Hampton Church in April, very local to Passion for Flowers and a short walk through the gardens to Hampton Manor. What a perfect setting for a spring wedding. Over the months we met with Lotty and her mum to prepare ideas and to create the look for Lotty and Dan’s romantic pastel pink and mercury silver wedding at Hampton Manor. Lotty runs a dance school and wanted to use the Beauty and The Beast fairytale as a thread running through her wedding. We agreed on pastel pink roses as the key blooms mixed with touches of white and ivory and lots of sparkle and candlelight.
PASTEL PINK & CREAM ROSE BRIDALBOUQUET
Lotty had a gorgeous lace wedding dress and so we created a romantic feminine bouquet in blush pinks a complete change from her everyday image.Touches of hydrangea softened the look.
PASTEL PINK & CREAM ROSE BOUQUETS FOR BRIDESMAIDS
With 5 bridesmaids in soft pink dresses the look continued with the softest of rose bouquets hand tied with lace to complement Lotty’s dress. I love their jewel encrusted belts bringing a touch more glamour and sparkle to the day.
PASTEL PINK ROSE BUTTON HOLES
Dan and the boys had pastel pink rose button holes whilst we used the same tones for larger sweet avalanche roses for the ladies. Everything was soft, pink and romantic for this wedding day. With so many button holes it is important to make sure they have name tags to help with the distribution on the wedding day.
PEW ENDS ~ HAMPTON CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS
The wooden pews had simple pew ends blush and soft pink roses hand tied with a sprig of pittosporum and lace. After the service everyone walked back through to the Manor gardens and had a great chance for some photos. I just love the one with the bridal party Rebecca shot.
MERCURY SILVER & PASTEL PINK ROSES ~ A WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR
The richness of the mercury silver with the pastel pink roses looked majestic at Hampton Manor. The long top table had the most romantic collection of mercury silver items, candlesticks in a variety of heights with white candles, large hurricane vases and a mix of different shaped and sized mercury silver bottles with filled with soft pastel pink roses. The guest tables had a touch of whimsy with the key to the castle, lots of candlelight and roses in gorgeous bottles in the glass domes. Mini glass domes were added to the top table to link the look. As the candles were lit the romance blossomed.
VINTAGE ROSES IN CHINA TEA CUPS & GLASS BOWLS ~ A WEDDING AT HAMPTON MANOR
Lotty wanted to incorporate some of her grandma’s rosebud china to the room and it looked soft and romantic on the large wooden display table with the cakes, vintage roses in glass rose bowls and a collection of beautiful boxes.

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.
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.
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.
Caroline and Rob tied the knot at Shustsoke Farm Barns on 1 August surrounded by family and friends. Caroline enjoyed the planning of her summer wedding and had a great eye for colour, the one thing she was certain of was she wanted to wear a flower crown for her wedding cermeony and hanging globes in the barn.
FLOWER CROWN – PINK, BLUE & GREEN HYDRANGEAS & ROSES
At our first meeting Caroline arrived with a gorgeous water colour board with inspiration for her day, tones of pinks, blues and greens. The flower crown we designed was very blousy and suited her curls on the day with a mix of pink, blue and green hydrangea with Sweet Avalanche and Ocean song roses. When the flowers were delivered in the morning the squeals of delight were wonderful to hear. The happiness captured in these photos at the start of the day continued throughout the day. What a beautiful relaxed and happy wedding day.
SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS – CEREMONY FLOWERS
The ceremony barn was filled with flowers, Rob had made a rustic wooden planter for us to fill with blooms from the day – hydrangeas, feathery astilbe, eucalyptus and roses with moss to edge. Together with the large hanging flower globes filled with a mix of hydrangeas and eucalyptus the wooden planter gave just the look Caroline and Rob had hoped for. I just love the rustic tree slice ring box.
BUTTON HOLES FOR THE BOYS
The boys had a mix of rustic styled button holes with hydrangea and eucalyptus finished with twine with a billy button for the youngest. How cute is his Ring Security shirt!
Caroline brought one of the dresses over to show me so we could finalise colours for the bouquets and we had great fun selecting such lovely bright summer flowers in colours of pink, green, lilac and blue. The long lace trailing ribbons for the bridesmaids added a good contrast to their floral dresses and finished off the look. The lace was also used to trail from Caroline’s flower crown. The bride herself carried a large bouquet of mixed hydrangeas and roses to offset her flower crown. Caroline bought cream jugs and attached personal tags for each of her maids.
FLOWER GARLAND AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS
As guests and finally the bridal party arrived at Shustoke Famr Barns they were greeted by a rustic country style flower garland hanging above the oak doors to the barn. Once inside everyone was greeted with a wonderfully hand crafted table plan and so many other personal touches.
TOP TABLE FLOWERS IN A RUSTIC CRATE – SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS
The top table was the centre of attention for the meal and speeches with the rustic crate handcrafted with love by Rob taking centre stage. The crate was over a metre in length and looked as if it was made for the barn.
PASTEL TONED FLOWERS FOR THE TABLES – WATER COLOUR THEME
Caroline had a water colour theme to her tables with handmade table numbers, beautifully hand dyed cloths in soft pastel tones on to which we added a mix of organic bottles and vases simply filled with just the right pastel toned blooms.
HANGING FLOWER GLOBES AT SHUSTOKE FARM BARNS
Caroline had seen photos of one of our previous barn weddings and just knew she wanted large flower globes to be part of her day. The hanging globes are a great treat for us to create and we just love how they can transform this large space. If you are having your ceremony at the barn, followed by the meal and then the evening the hanging globes can be enjoyed throughout the day and add that extra WOW factor to your day.
WEDDING CAKE ON A TREE SLICE WITH FLOWERS
The wedding cake just needed simple blooms to add a touch of colour and be set on a rustic tree slice. We love the bit of whimsy with the beetle and the ladybird.
It is over a year since we first designed wedding flowers for Shustoke Farm Barns and we just love returning time after time as it gives us the opportunity to style it differently for each and every wedding. Our style is always in keeping with the natural look and feel of this wonderful wedding venue.
