Warm Winter Hues at Babington House

We're delighted to share some images with you of this gorgeous winter wedding from last November, which was featured on Spanish Vogue
The ceremony was at St. Mary's church in the picturesque Somerset village of Bruton. It was a beautiful sunny morning and the low sun cast lovely long shadows over the graveyard making for a very atmospheric setting. The bride chose natural, foliage-heavy trailing swags for statement pew ends down the aisle, and combined this with large gothic candles for an asymmetric display at the front of the ceremony.
This elegant, relaxed style carried on to the reception at Babington House, as earthy, dusky tones matched beautifully with rustic candelabras and taupe candles, to give a low, informal tablescape for the Wedding Breakfast. This was set off with dark blue silk ribbons around the napkins, styled with sprigs of pepperberry.
The bride was inspired by pale wintery shades of blush and grey, and was very involved in designing the wedding palette with us. We mixed leggy florals and twiggy branches, with dried seed heads, and the palest nude roses and ranunculus. Using mixed styles of glassware and ceramic vases, the tables were full of shades and texture.

Classic Whites

Sometimes simple white flowers are the best choice, especially for a chic black tie summer wedding.

Recently featured on Rock My Wedding, Emily and Edward's intimate ceremony and reception was the height of sophistication. A mono-botanical design acted as the main feature for the ceremony, with clear glass vases grouped with white and green seasonal blooms, nestled with candlelight.

Emily's bouquet was a tight knot of all white hydrangeas, garden roses, scabious and scented sweetpeas, with double white lisianthus for the buttonholes.

These moody photographs from James Frost speak for themselves, and showcase the grounds at The Lost Orangery under gorgeous grey skies.


Glittering Gold at Babington House

This was something a little out of the ordinary for Passion, 
but we loved creating this opulent golden look wedding a few weeks ago. 
The twinkling fariylights, golden hues and soft candlelight
made the Babington Orangery look magical.
With gold becoming more popular,
if you would like Passion to create a stunning golden setting for you,
 please don't hesitate to get in touch with our lovely wedding team.

Dartington Crystal Workshop at Passion

Here at Passion we were thrilled to be approached by Dartington Crystal
to host a workshop with them for a group of local bloggers.
Jo spent the evening teaching a summer floral arrangements workshop here at our barn,
where each blogger chose a Darlington crystal vase to create their arrangement in.
Fuelled with fizz and nibbles some beautiful arrangements were created.
To see how they got on - head on over to these lovely blog websites!

Anthropologie Floral Installation

We were delighted to create a stunning floral installation for Anthropologie Bath to celebrate Passions 15th birthday and Chelsea Flower Show. 
Alongside the window installation Jo put on a great workshop showing everyone how to create a small jar arrangement. We had great fun collaborating with Anthropologie and look forward to working together in the future!
