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.
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!!!

If you are planning a winter wedding at Hampton Manor we would love to create a wonderful setting for your day.
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.
Whilst the service was taking place we were busy putting the finishing touches to the Courtyard to make that magical for the arrival of the wedding party.
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.
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
We love winter weddings but don’t usually wake up to a fresh coating of snow on the wedding morning. This added to the gorgeous winter look for Zeb and Steph who married at Blackwell Grange.
Steph carried a winter bridal bouquet with deep burgundy red roses, softer toned quicksand roses, touches of nigella seed heads and a mix of eucalyptus to finish.
WINTER WEDDING BLACKWELL GRANGE – THE CEREMONY
The ceremony at Blackwell Grange offers a huge fireplace with burning fire and a wonderful place to decorate for a winter wedding. The stunning piece on the fireplace continued the wild winter look. Steph loves horses and ponies and had a surprise visit when she came out from her ceremony.

New Year’s Eve is a special time for celebrations and we were honoured to assist Kristin and Tim with their wedding flowers and styling at Hampton Manor. This gorgeous couple chose to come back to England to share their day with family and friends from around the globe. We enjoyed skyping with Kristin who is based in Bejing in the build up to her wedding to ensure we delivered the elegant winter wedding she desired.
The bouquets were large organic free form is style with a textured mix of foliage eucalyptus, ozmanthus, dotted with brunia berries, thistle, lisianthus, roses, and ranunculus.
THE CEREMONY – BIRCH ARBOUR
The ceremony was a beautiful affair with a birch arbour trimmed with the softest drapes to create a soft, romantic backdrop. The organic mix of foliage and flowers was continued throughout the day with hand tied bunches of foliage to the aisle chairs to bring the outdoors in. A traditional Chinese tea ceremony was an integral part of the ceremony. Here tea is lovingly poured by Kristin.
As they left the Birches the Kristin and Tim were showered with confetti to celebrate their marriage.
LONG TABLE FLORALS AND CANDLES – NEW YEARS EVE WEDDING
Long tables enabled family and friends from around the globe to connect, chat, and enjoy the food selected for this special wedding day. Fresh foliage was entwined the length of the long tables delicately interspersed with touches of white illuminated with gold candlesticks for a romantic look.
