ROCK MY WEDDING BOOK – YOUR DAY YOUR WAY CHARLOTTE O’SHEA

Rock My Wedding Book You Day your Way Charlotte O'Shea

PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENT

Sometimes in life you meet someone who inspires you and whom you love working with. I met with Charlotte O’Shea quite by chance and have enjoyed working with her ever since those early days. Never did I expect that I would travel the country with the Rock My Wedding team and create the florals for their stunning book. This past year has been a milestone in our floral journey and I feel so honoured to have my work featured in a book. When Charlotte first approached us at the concept stage we just knew we had to be involved and  put our heart and soul into this project.

As Charlotte so beautifully put it “Karen Morgan from Passion for Flowers followed us halfway around the country with her magnificent blooms and ability to whip up a floral storm in an unprecedented short amount of time. I swear she is actually ‘Mary Poppins’ in disguise. Her van plays host to a seemingly limitless supply of trinkets and decorative pieces from her daughter Gemma’s wedding decor store – The Wedding of My Dreams”

WHO SHOULD BUY THE BOOK

The book is an inspiring read, a great gift for newly engaged couples or for anyone wanting to add some last minute details to their wedding day. No wedding should be planned without it!

PASSION FOR FLOWERS AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW 2015

PASSION FOR FLOWERS STAND AT THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

At Passion for Flowers we love the chance to design our show stopping stand at The National Wedding Show. We are able to meet so many couples either just starting off on their wedding planning journey or wanting to be inspired for some last minute touches. Our stand showed a glimpse into our style of individually designed weddings. Every wedding is unique and designed with our couples in mind to reflect their tastes, venue and personalities. Passion for Flowers couples love flowers and have them high on their wedding list.

Cascading garlands of scented roses and foliage hung delicately from the muslin drapes. The large tablescape included a mix of bronze and gold vases and vessels filled with an autumnal mix of foliage and soft blooms. The hanging installation created a WOW factor to the stand with trailing amaranthus, roses, helebores and even more cascading foliage. Country house venues with fireplaces are lovely to decorate so we styled a fireplace with an asymetrical garland and bronze candlesticks.

BOUQUET FROM THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

A blousy bouquet in our natural romantic style with a heavenly mix of eucalyptus, astilbe, helebores, lisianthus and scented roses stole the show. We always love the richness of soft ribbons to trail.

FLOWERS FOR THE CHEESE CAKE

Bailey, Kathryn and families have a love of good food and cheese so the choice of cake was a labour of love. Each cheese stack had been carefully selected as a favourite and we loved the opportunity to style the table with a rustic wooden tree slice and beautiful blooms from their day.

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.

PASSION FOR FLOWERS FEATURED IN WEDDING FLOWERS AND ACCESSORIES MAGAZINE

passion for flowers wedding flowers and accessories magazine

Here at Passion for Flowers we love seeing our work in print. A couple of months ago we took our floral designs down to London for a shoot with Wedding Flowers and Accessories Magazine. Here is the finished result – we created mixed blooms in pinks, blues and greens for a bright Summer look.

passion for flowers wedding flowers and accessories magazinepassion for flowers wedding flowers and accessories magazineTHE BOUQUET

For the bouquet we created a relaxed hand tied bouquet of pink, white, green and blue hydrangeas with touches of pink astilbe, veronica, wax flowers and seeded eucalyptus. Tied with vintage lace and a brooch.

WHITEWASHED WOODEN CRATE CENTREPIECE

For the centrepiece we used a wooden crate (available from The Wedding of my Dreams) and painted it white. We used similar flowers to the bouquet for a relaxed look. We included mixed colours of hydrangeas, blush pink roses, wax flower, astilbe and eucalyptus.

BUTTONHOLE

The buttonhole was an amnesia rose, snippet of blue hydrangea and eucalyptus tied with rustic twine.

PLACE SETTING

The place setting shown on the green napkin was a small bunch including a snippet of blue hydrangea, blush pink rose, eucalyptus and wax flower tied with twine. These make pretty place settings for the ladies.

This mix of flowers would suits a relaxed wedding, perhaps at a barn or in a marquee during the Spring or Summer. This mix of colours are also perfect if you have chosen a watercolour theme for your wedding.

 FAIRYTALE BOUQUET – WHITE WEDDING BOUQUET

Another of our bouquets were also featured within the magazine, this white wedding bouquet is hand tied with lace. We used a mix of white winter flowers for this bouquet including white ranunculus, white hydrangeas and white roses.
