An Essex Woodland Wedding with DIY Details

Ruby and Jamie’s woodland wedding was inspired by their venue. They knew they wanted to get married in the woods, and when they found Captain Wood Barn, they knew it was perfect. They were married in August and chose a burgundy as their main colour, reflected in the groom’s suit, the bride’s lipstick, shoes and crown, and the flowers.

They also did LOADS of DIY. Décor wise, they kept things pretty rustic in theme, allowing the beauty of their surroundings to be the star. They made their own table plan, spray-painted a lot of stuff gold including toy animals for the tables, and Jamie’s dad made all the names on the table using pyrography and wood. The bride’s mum made candle holders, the groom’s sister made the cake and another family member did all the flowers! They also ordered lots of paper decorations as well as hired in extra props and furniture.

A Relaxed Boho Summer Wedding

When the bride works in events, you KNOW her wedding is going to be flawlessly put together. Akilah was adamant she didn’t want a themed day (“even the word theme perturbs us a little!” she said) but she and Richard were naturally drawn to things that worked together, which was only solidified when they found their venue, The Barn at Bury Court in Farnham. They incorporated elements like candle and lots of flowers which created a low key, yet perfectly cohesive day.

“We didn’t have a theme as such but I knew I wanted to involve a lot of flowers and candles and the wedding venue and set up was perfect for that”, she explained. “The rest kind of fell into place. I begun spraying hundreds of jars in different metallic colours and then gave the florist free reign to do the rest. After meeting her I 100% trusted her to get it right and she did.”

Colourful, Informal & Eclectic Summer Wedding

Hannah and Nick chose Dewsall Court in Hereford for their summer 2019 wedding. They wanted an eclectic and colourful day and when they visited the venue and found out they had a canopy already set up outside that they could have their ceremony under, they were sold!

They were legally married two weeks before at the register office so they asked the bride’s uncle to officiate the blessing on the day. He came up with a ceremony that featured the two of them as Beano characters and ended with them having to don false noses as the ‘ring exchange’!

Gothic Glam Autumnal Wedding

With autumn just around the corner, we know you’re going to love swooning over Gemma and Neil’s big day. They were hitched in November 2019, and planned their day to reflect their mutual love of the season.

“Autumn is our favourite”, Gemma told us, “it’s absolutely beautiful in Cumbria at this time of year. Our decor had a symbolic nod towards new beginnings with fallen autumnal leaves below green foliage and freshly bloomed flowers.”

Choosing Three Hills Barn in Torpenhow as their venue, they were really able to make it their own. The couple did all the flowers themselves as well all of the decorations. The bride’s mum even made the cake. “We wanted the day to be as personal with as much meaning as possible”, she continued. “We had our favourite incense burning throughout the ceremony and in our decor we used items collected on our travels together. The autumnal leaves, pine cones and conkers all have their little stories attached, my favourite memory was collecting the conkers while walking alongside the river in Paris.”

When Life Gives you Lemons… Get Married!

We LOVE Megan and Phil’s unique and stylish wedding theme. A mixture of yellow, blush and nude tones with citrus fruits used as decor, they created a really beautiful, yet totally ‘them’ summer celebration (plus Phil is a chef so incorporating ingredients into their table settings felt very fitting!) Having the bridal party all in white really let the decor touches shine too – sometimes (sometttimesss!) less really is more!

Choosing The Boiler Shop, a unique event space and music venue in the centre of Newcastle, was a stoke of genius for their theme. The warehouse provided the perfect blank canvas for their theme, they were really able to transform the space and make it their own. All the flowers were done by a friend, Moira, using a mix of dry, fake and real flowers. Some were bought and others were home grown in her garden.

Crazy & Colourful Three-Day Campsite Festival Wedding

When one wedding day isn’t enough – have three! Didi and Mark had their legal ceremony on the Friday, the main event on the Saturday and much needed recovery time on the Sunday. They hired Canvas and Clover, a luxury campsite situated on a working farm in Worcestershire, for the whole weekend.

“The inspiration for our wedding was to have a time and place to celebrate all the good things in life”, Didi began. “I recently found out that my family (which is rather large) only got together for sad times so I really wanted to be able to gather my family for a positive reason! What better excuse is there to have a three-day wedding!?”
