If you are looking for inspiration for an elegant winter wedding then I thought you would love this one. Hampton Manor plays host to many happy events during the year but it is the home of winter weddings. Hannah and Rick chose the Manor as the setting for their elegant romantic wedding in December.
WINTER WEDDING FLOWERS AT HAMPTON MANOR – BOUQUETS
For an elegant winter wedding forgot the strong Christmas vibes of red and green and embrace the season with the softest of roses, brunia berries, wax flowers and lashing of eucalyptus.
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.
RUSTIC CRATE WEDDING TABLE PLAN
A rustic table plan welcomed guests and made a great keepsake for the bride and groom.
BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS RESTING IN BRONZE VASES
Each bouquet featured a single type of bloom from honey moon tulips, parrot tulips, and avalanche roses with the colour and ribbon linking the look.The softest silk ribbons tied around the bridesmaids bouquets presented in bronze vases.
TOP TABLE FLORAL GARLAND
The top table garland with the addition of gold and glass lanterns decorated the top table for a wonderful winter wedding.
Catie and Sion chose Birtsmorton Church and Court for their elegant winder wonderland wedding with white silver and green colours and highlights of burgundy red.
TRAILING BRIDAL BOUQUET – DEEP RED WINTER TONES
Catie’s elegant wedding dress suited a neat, trailing bouquet. Natural flowers we included were a mix of roses, lisianthus, petite larch cones, and sprigs of eucalyptus to add a trail to the bouquet. Her choice of bouquet was also dear to her as her mother carried an elegant trailing bouquet at her own wedding.
Winter button holes included a touch of larch cone for a wintry look.
CHURCH CEREMONY AT BIRTSMORTON COURT
The church entrance was decorated with a bespoke white welcome sign, silver lanterns and bunches of local mistletoe. Inside this country estate church the tall candlesticks were decorated with flowers & foliage tied with deep burgundy ribbon. Tall silver candelabra decorated with flowers from the day made a wonderful frame for the wedding ceremony. The beautiful deer were a personal touch bringing back memories for Catie and her mother.
CENTREPIECES AT BIRTSMORTON COURT – CANDELABRA & FOOTED BOWLS
The winter elegance continued at Birtsmorton Court with elegant silver candelabra and footed bowls filled with a relaxed mix of blooms and foliage from the day. The top table was framed by the tall candelabra with an elegant central arrangement and a mix of vases and votives were added.
EXTRA FLORAL DETAILS – TABLE PLAN GARLAND
The table plan mirror continued the look with a garland of foliage and flowers from the day bringing colour to the look.
We loved creating the flowers for Catie and Sion and were delighted to receive their note of thanks
‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you did for our wedding on Saturday! The flowers were just incredible, we really could not have wished for any better! It made our day truly special.’
This winter has been an epic one for us, just perfect as we do love winter weddings. Hannah chose a white and grey bridal bouquet for her Winter Wedding at Hampton Manor. This organic mix of roses, lisianthus, wax flower, grey brunia and eucalyptus looked stunning with her bridal gown.
SERIOUSLY STUNNING WINTER WEDDING BOUQUET
“Just want to thank you so much for the flowers, they were perfect and the venue looked stunning. Thanks for all your hard work. Best wishes Hannah x “
This makes all the early mornings worthwhile. If you are looking for inspiration for your winter wedding please get in touch.
We love Hampton Manor weddings and were delighted to have free rein to decorate the sumptuous Elizabeth’s Court for the autumn wedding fair. We enjoyed meeting a number of wedding couples and showing them how they could decorate the venue to suit their wedding style and season.
Since then we have been busy meeting with couples at our studio at Home Farm in Berkswell where we have an ever expanding range of vases, vessels and large scale props to make your wedding day your own.
TOP TABLE GARLANDS
At your wedding reception all eyes are on the top table so make a statement with your florals as these will be captured in your photos of the speeches on the day. We love decorating the Butchers Block table with an abundance of mixed foliage with flowers and added textures. For this look we added roses, brunia and air plants for great texture. Elegant silver candlesticks complete the look.
White, grey and green and a perfect choice for an elegant wedding whatever the season for a timeless look. For a spring take on this we would include some white tulips and ranunulus in the design. There is always a choice of flower to add to create a great look with the season and your wedding colours in mind.
Add interest to the place settings with a pocketful of delicate astrantia nestled in the napkin. Posy vases by the place settings also add a welcome personal touch.
ELEGANT TALL BRONZE VASE CENTREPIECES – PEACH ROSES WHITE HYDRANGEAS
Metallics are still hot news and look oh so stunning at the Manor, this look is perfect for an overstated elegant look with a bit of glitz and glamour. See how the tall bronze vases goes so well with the stunning chandelier in the room. We always look to tie in your wedding decor with the room and your bespoke theme. Peach roses and cream hydrangea brought out the warmth to this look.
Team with gold and bronze lower vases running along the table and add gold rimmed glasses for an elegant look. The glass charger plates keep this fresh and contemporary.
Photo frames in opulent metallic finish add a finishing touch to the tablescape. If using the sprig table layout at Hampton Manor make sure you have interest running along the table, use candles and lanterns to add to the romance.
If you are planning a room layout with round tables you could consider using a mix of different centrepieces around the room. Perhaps a stunning tall bronze vase on a central table and lanterns surrounded by gorgeous blooms on others, with an abundant mix of gold and bronze vases on another. By keeping to the same blooms the look remains cohesive and easy on the eye but becomes a talking point amongst your guests.
STONE URN CENTREPIECS BRONZE CANDLESTICKS AND BOTTLES
Rustic woodland settings work so well at Hampton Manor and can be started with the ceremony in The Birches. The stone vases and urns create great centrepieces and bring a sense of naturalness to the tables. The stone in the courtyard was our inspiration for this look. For a winter wedding we have included touches of grey brunia and eucalyptus and added bronze candelsticks and bronze bottles with bloooms along the table.
For the place settings a slate place card holder looks just right with torn edge paper and a calligraphy name card. Its the little details that take your wedding from great to amazing.
Add texture with a luxe linen grey runner to bring the table to life and glass charger plates to perfect the look.
ELEGANT TALL GLASS VASES – PEACH AND CREAM ROSES
We love elegant tall glass vases and wanted to show one of our latest designs at Hampton Manor. This elevated design could form a centrepiece to a long table design with a mix of smaller glass vases and glass candlesticks running along the table. They can also be used to add drama to the Parlour for exclusive use weddings or to create a stunning top table design.
Details for this design included our salt cellar place names with a snippet of waxfower set on a glass charger plate. The elegance continues with the glass candle sticks and glass footed vases.
