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.

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.

Birch Arch Scroll Wedding Backdrop: Hampton Manor

Rustic Birch Arch Scroll Backdrop Hampton Manor Wedding Florist Passion for Flowers

We usually use our birch arch covered in flowers and foliage to create a rustic frame for a wedding ceremony. Here is another use for it. At the recent Hampton Manor wedding fair, we showed our birch arch as a backdrop with a  bespoke scroll hanging from it. This backdrop could be used behind the wedding ceremony, behind a top table or behind a cake table or dessert bar.

The scroll reads “Love is old, love is new, love is all, love is you” but we would love to create this to say something of your choice.


A wedding backdrop is a great styling trick to add to your venue decor. Here a pared-back birch arch has a personalised scroll and delicate foliage, glass hanging baubles, rustic tree stumps, an abundance of candles and relaxed planting and florals to create a great backdrop for your wedding day.

For an alternative wreath, we created an asymmetric floral decoration around an old cartwheel, perfect for welcoming guests to your wedding ceremony. Here the arrow reads flowers, but for a ceremony, we could change it to welcome, or later for drinks or bar.
