blush-pink-rose-mercury-silver-vases

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.

cream-pink-rose-hand-tied-bridal-bouquet

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

CORAL WEDDING FLOWERS |PEONIES & ROSES, BOUQUETS & CENTREPIECES

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.

Another re-post from our blog archives. This wedding was a beautiful summer wedding at Iscoyd Park. We had an abundance of peach wedding flowers, with additional touches of vibrant green and yellow daisies. Fab inspiration for a summer wedding.

ISCOYD PARK WEDDING FLOWERS

We first met Nicola at The National Wedding Show and were really excited to create Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers. At Passion for Flowers we love working with our couples and creating flowers at their venues and Iscoyd Park and St Mary’s Church were certainly highlights this summer.

BRIDAL BOUQUET ~ JUST PICKED DAISIES AND PEACH ROSES

Nicola’s dress was a stunning lace dress and we created a gorgeous hand picked bouquet with a mix of David Austin roses in peach, cream and soft pink combined with just picked daisies, veronica and other summer blooms.

COUNTRY CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS

St Mary’s is the most beautiful country church in England, we fell in love with it when we visited it with Nicola and Mark earlier in the year. The setting is so wonderful at the end of the lane, within minutes of Iscoyd Park.

The church just needs country church wedding flowers to make it come to life, rustic crates at the entrance brimming with summer blooms. Inside the little church Mark and Nicola knew the church would be packed so we concentrated on the central aisle with just picked pew ends and country church wedding flowers hanging from poles. All the rest of the colour came from Nicola and her gorgeous bridesmaids and cute flower girls. We were thrilled when the Church Warden commented they were the best church flowers she had seen!

BUTTON HOLES TIED WITH TWINE

Mark wanted a mix of hand tied button holes tied with twine – just perfect for this country church wedding. Don’t you just love the invitation with Mark and Nicola on their tandem outside the church?

BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS ~ JUST PICKED DAISIES AND DAVID AUSTIN ROSES

The bridesmaids dresses were one of the first things Nicola had told me about. The buttercup yellow dresses would set the colour palette for the day. We complemented these with hand tied bouquets with just picked daisies ad David Austin roses in cream. soft pink and peach. The wedding car Nicola and Mark had found was also called ‘Buttercup’ which really brought a smile to my face.

ISCOYD PARK WEDDING FLOWERS ~ HANGING BOTTLES FROM TREES

The gardens at Iscoyd Park are simply stunning. One of the delights of creating Iscoyd Park Wedding Flowers was the opportunity to visit with Mark and Nicola, something at Passion for Flowers we always do for new venues to us. We found the perfect tree for hanging bottles and love the photos with the cricket game taking place. The garden at Iscoyd Park was brimming with roses and other blooms perfect as a backdrop to Nicola and Mark on their wedding day.

ISCOYD PARK WEDDING FLOWERS ~ RUSTIC WOODEN CRATES

The rustic wooden crates from church added colour and life into the marquee. Mark and Nicola wanted to ensure the marquee was not bland and so we all worked together to create a warm inviting look and feel in the marquee. Hessian chair backs with bunches of hand picked flowers decorated the chairs, the lovely table names added even more colour as well as the hand crafted cutlery wraps and favour jars.

ISCOYD PARK WEDDING FLOWERS ~ CRYSTAL GLASS VASES AND HESSIAN TABLE RUNNERS

We decorated the tables with a mix of crystal glass vases in very shape and size, stacks of crystal plates festooned with flowers and mirror cake stands with small crystal jugs and vases, tea lights and hessian runners. In the marquee we intensified the colours of the flowers by adding warmer yellow and more touches of peach. Pew ends were added around the marquee and on windowsills in the house.

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)

how to make a flower crown by Passion for Flowers

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.

WATERCOLOUR PASTEL WEDDING FLOWERS {FEATURED ON RMW}

pastel coloured hydrangea bouquets flower crown blue pink green

Caroline and Rob’s wedding has been featured on Rock My Wedding today! We loved working on this wedding last summer, Caroline and Rob’s wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns was oh so beautiful. Their colour palette was a range of pastel tones inspired by watercolour.

The bouquets were a mix of blues, greens and pinks using hydrangeas and roses for a blousy look. Caroline loved her flower crown, she wore it all through the day.

We blogged this wedding back in the summer, see the full feature here to read all about her flowers (bouquets, flower crown, hanging globes & crates) and even more wedding details.

SANDON HALL WEDDING – ELEGANT BLUE AND WHITE WEDDING FLOWERS

Blue and White Bridesmaids Bouquets with Nave Bridesmaids Dresses by Passion for Flowers

Bethan and Mark were married last spring at All Saints, the parish church of Sandon, before celebrating their marriage with a drinks reception in Sandon Hall and a wedding breakfast in the stunning marquee. After meeting with Bethan at Sandon Hall we worked on ideas for her cream, white and navy colour scheme to include some blue tones in the flowers perfect for a spring wedding. We just loved their elegant blue and white wedding and felt extremely priveleged to create their wedding flowers.

BLUE AND WHITE TRAILING BRIDAL BOUQUET

Bethan was certain she wanted a trailing bridal bouquet and we designed  a trailing mixed bouquet with a relaxed  look with avalanche roses, scented freesias, feathery astilbe, trailing ivy, eucalyptus, lisianthus, with some blue tones in the flowers from delphiniums and love in a mist just perfect with her elegant dress and veil.

BLUE AND WHITE BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS

The bridesmaids carried spring blue and white bouquets with a mix of hydrangea, freesia, astrantia, roses and snippets of delphinium. The mix of blues created a lovely contrast to their elegant navy dresses.

CHURCH WEDDING FLOWERS – STONE URNS

All Saints church at Sandon is a wonderful stone building and we felt that the stone urns on plinths would keep everything looking very natural. We added some blousy hydrangea to the mix of tulips, freesia, nigella love in a mist, delphiniums, and plenty of eucalyptus and ivy to create a larger entrance arrangement . Outside the church we set up a mix of spring blooms in a wooden crate and a small posy was placed in the churchyard.

SANDON HALL MARQUEE WEDDING – CANDELABRA CENTREPIECES

In the marquee at Sandon Hall we created beautiful candelabra centrepieces for the tables. The silver candelabra created an elegant look and the white of the marquee was the perfect backdrop for such stunning arrangements with soft spring flowers and plenty of natural foliage. I just love the pop of the blue delphiniums in the mix of flowers.

I have a wonderful job meeting so many lovely couples in the build up to their  wedding day and so wanted to share this lovely note from Bethan and Mark.

‘Thank you so much for the incredible flowers and arrangements you put together for our wedding. They were simply stunning and complemented my dress, my bridesmaids’ dresses and the surroundings absolutely perfectly.

I still have no idea how you managed to produce the flowers of my dreams with the very few snippets of information I gave you, a credit to your incredible talent! You made the whole process so easy and we knew we had absolutely nothing to worry about as far as our flowers were concerned. Thank you!’

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC CRATE

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

Are you thinking of having a go at doing your wedding flowers yourself? We have been working with Rock My Wedding to put together some easy to follow step by step guides (see our other step by step tutorials here). Today we show you how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic style weddings using a wooden crate as your container.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE HOW TO MAKE FLORAL WEDDING CENTREPIECES – RUSTIC CRATE

Follow our step by step instructions as this is what you will end up with – perfect for a rustic centrepiece.

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

To create a relaxed rustic or country style look we have chosen a mix of flowers, including pittosporum, light blue hydrangeas, blue delphiniums, pink wax flower, Sweert Avalanche roses, dahlias, amni and blue veronica.

A similar wooden crate can be purchased from our online boutique, The Wedding of my Dreams, you will need to paint this white (or leave it with a the wooden finish it is up to you).

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

1. Line the wooden crate with cellophane or even a plastic bag if you don’t have cellophane.

2. Cut a piece of oasis to size and soak in a bucket of water.

3. Place the oasis inside the wooden crate on a plastic oasis tray.

4. Now it is time to starting adding the flowers, to begin with edge the box with your chosen foliage. Here we suggest edging it with the pittosporum and pink wax flower.

step by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowersstep by step guide how to make a floral wedding centrepiece for rustic weddings using a wooden crate by Passion for Flowers

5. Once you have added foliage you should position the key flowers in the oasis. So, this is the hydrangeas, roses and dahlias.

6. Remember to cut your stems on a diagonal to increase the surface area which enables them to drink more water.

7. Fill in any gaps with your remaining flowers.

8. As this is going in the centre of you tables, or perhaps running down the centre of a long table make sure you look at it from different angles to make sure there are no gaps. If you find some gaps just fill them in with foliage or any remaining flowers.

This centrepiece is ideal for a relaxed rustic or country wedding. If blue and pinks aren’t your colours you can use different flowers. Have a look at our pinterest board ‘Flower Library – What’s That Flower Called’ to browse some of our favourite wedding flowers, it also tells you which season they are available in. Or if you are having long guest tables rather than round we suggest you make a few of these and line them up down the length of the table, this can also look good on the top table.

 

Leave us a comment if you have a go at making this, we’d love to hear how you get on and see pictures.

I just love weddings with lots of details and personal touches. Steffi and Dan came down with their families to meet me and tell me about the Pride and Prejudice inspired wedding they were planning just perfect for the setting in The Cloisters at Coombe Abbey.

I loved the idea of incorporating The Second World War ideas and bringing in both their personalities to create a very personal and memorable wedding day truly reflecting them as a couple.

CANDELABRA WEDDING CENTREPIECES – WHITE WEDDING FLOWERS

The magestic candelabra were set at the end of the top table and we added a floral ring of pure white flowers including hydrangeas, peonies, white garden  roses, delphiniums and tulips perfect for a May wedding. The fireplace provides a great backdrop and needs opulent flowers on the top table. A large centre piece was created and we added vases of flowers, tea lights and stacks of books collected by the bride.

The guest tables had books for the guests, they had been asked their favourite book in the invitation and the bride had searched for the relevant books. Vases of flowers filled the space on the tables and the elegant candlelight completed the look.

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.

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!

BRIDAL & BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS – BRIGHT SUMMER FLOWERS

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.

VINTAGE WEDDING FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – SUPER 8 FILM

At Passion for Flowers we love it when our brides let us in on a secret. This film by Mark Brown was so special as it was a present from a bride to her groom. What a gorgeous surprise for Richard and a wonderful gift from his bride Victoria as a lasting reminder of their wonderful wedding day at Hampton Church and Hampton Manor.

Victoria and her bridesmaids carried gorgeous summer vintage style bouquets, we love using vintage flowers at Hampton Manor. We used dahlia Cafe au Lait, a mix of vintage roses in creams, soft and deeper pink and peach tones of Magic Avalanche, Pearl Avalanche, scented Kiera garden roses, astrantia, eucalyptus and olive foliage with rosemary for a relaxed look. Long trailing ribbons completed the look. After the church service Victoria changed to wearing a flower crown of mixed summer flowers including garden roses which totally suited her relaxed day with vintage elements.

What a beautiful bride wonderfully captured on film.
