Whimsical & Decadent Haunted Forest Wedding

A children’s farm doesn’t seem like your typical wedding venue, but when you bring on the creative genius of Michael Strownix to style the whole thing up, it became the perfect place for Caitlin and Adrian’s April wedding day. “Our friend works at the farm,” the bride told us, “and it’s a place that both of us had spent a lot of happy time. The balance of stunning natural beauty, rustic appeal and just a touch of absurdity with goats and peacocks wandering round appealed to us, too.”

“While we didn’t have a particularly theme in mind,” she continued, “someone described it as ‘like an old book shop in a haunted forest’ which I think just about sums it up. We just tried to inject little bits of ourselves and own own taste into things to make it feel a bit more personal to us. It was unashamedly whimsical and a bit silly, but with just enough tradition and sincerity to give it some gravity.”

An Accidentally Autumnal Woodland Ceremony Arranged in 24 Hours!

Dan and Cara’s woodland wedding ceremony was pulled together in just 24 hours! Having their big summer wedding postponed for obvious reasons, they changed their plans to have a smaller wedding in November. However, then a second lockdown was announced just two days before they were due to get married, it meant their previously COVID-secure wedding was now a no-go too! With the help of the wedding planner at Cheshire Woodland Weddings, the registrars and their families, they re-arranged everything in just one day and were able to have their 13-guest ceremony on November 7th.

“Our wedding theme was ‘accidentally autumnal’,” the bride told us. “Our original wedding was due to be in May, so it would have been spring/summer vibes, however the way it all turned out was absolutely perfect to reflect us. We had originally booked a different venue, however when COVID hit and we had to postpone, it was fate that we looked at alternative options and found the woods! Both of us love nature and adventures so Cheshire Woodland Weddings was the most perfect place for us to get married.”

Laidback, Family Picnic Style Farmyard Wedding on a £3,500 Budget

Sharron and Chris wanted their spring wedding day to be really laid-back and for guests to feel relaxed without the usual formalities of a wedding. Sharron also knew she wanted an outdoor ceremony, so started their planning finding a venue that would fit their requirements; Cornish Camels in Helston ticked all the boxes! 

With a £3,500 budget, they kept things super simple and low key. Guests were told to bring a picnic blanket and a chair. They served a cream tea picnic as a wedding breakfast followed by vegan street food later on. The entertainment was already provided in the form of the resident camels, who were looking adorably dishevelled as their fur was malting. They kept decor simple, with table decorations of jars with sheet music wrapped around and bunting loaned from a friend’s previous wedding.

Sentimental & Homemade Wedding with a Pregnant Bride

Rebecca and Simon’s special day was all about the people, rather than the things. They didn’t put any thought into themes, colours or entertainment, and instead wanted to focus on each other and those close to them, by having a really small, un-fussy wedding.

As Rebecca was sixteen weeks pregnant on their wedding day, they had a small budget and wanted to prove to themselves that they could have a beautiful day on very little money. Everything about their wedding was local, memorable and sentimental – they got married at the small registry office round the corner from where they met, had dinner opposite the theatre where Rebecca worked and they had their first date. “We spent the day literally surrounded by all of our memories and all of the people we love, and that was all that mattered to us.” she said.

Bohemian Brazilian Beach Elopement & Pregnancy Announcement!

Larissa and Giovanni wanted their wedding to be as simple as life in the sea – surrounding by just a few people that they love, in their favourite setting, bringing back childhood memories of time at the beach and the smell of the ocean.

They planned their day at the last minute, when their maid-of-honour and photographer was back from travelling to her destination weddings for the season. It was a particularly poignant time for the couple as they were expecting their first child, so it was particularly emotional to be able to celebrate their wedding and pregnancy announcements at the same time.

Laid Back Vegan Picnic Wedding on a Tuesday Afternoon

Louise and Jack celebrated their marriage with a super lovely vegan picnic in the park with their little girl, and gave us all a masterclass in how you truly can have a day that’s only about you and your love.

“Our wedding theme was ‘Let’s do this thing and share our new family name’!” Louise explains. “We really just wanted to be married, to be husband and wife.” They went for a really basic, witnesses-only ceremony on a Tuesday afternoon at Cheltenham Registry Office – Louise says it took longer to fill out the paperwork than it did to get married! In their ceremony, Louise and Jack both changed their name, as they wanted “To share a name that meant so each of us, rather than just following tradition.”

Side note: How emotional was their first look? To be honest, how totally emotional are all of the Luna Palm Photography photos, and, of course, this beautiful video:

As she was seven months pregnant with their second child, Louise chose not to wear a dress, opting for a white multiway jumpsuit from Pretty Little Thing. Louise also took a glue gun to a simple flower crown from ASOS to make it suit her a little better.
