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.

Festive Meets Celtic Meets Gothic Wedding in Cornwall

Sharon and Austen met when they both studied art at Falmouth University. Despite being friends, they lost touch when they left. Twenty years later, they reconnected after a chance Facebook ‘other people you may know’ suggestion, they got chatting and the rest, as they say, is history! 

With Sharon’s Cornish family and Austen’s Scottish heritage, a Celtic theme made perfect sense as a theme for the couple’s November wedding. A shared love of history and pulling influences from folktales and mystery made for an otherworldly kingdom feel to their day. With kilts, a bagpiper, harpist, gothic attire and antlers, and lots of references to Game of Thrones and Tolkien, they also used deep colour to embrace the feeling of the season and the combining of two Celtic families.

Peaky Blinders Meets F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Wedding with a Relaxed Atmosphere

Having a relaxed atmosphere at their February 29th wedding was one of the most important factors for Samantha and Jon. They also wanted to play homage to a couple of their favourite TV shows. Their tables names were F.R.I.E.N.D.S themed, each table named after one of the characters with a quote from the show to make people laugh and Samantha walked down the aisle to a slowed down cover of the theme. The groomsmen’s attire was inspired by Peaky Blinders, complete with flat caps!

“The morning went by slowly but the ceremony soon came and went”, Samantha told us. “We both didn’t want to be in the direct spotlight for too long. We were straight out for photos afterwards heading for group shots with the bridal party and Ryan, our photographer, asked me to drop my flowers down by my side … I took this very
literally and threw my bouquet of flowers onto the floor. Oops! They survived
though and I still have all the dried out flowers now in gin bottles on display at home.”

Rustic & Vintage Meets Rock n Roll Wedding

Krystle and Mike married at Upwaltham Barns, Sussex last year. They decided early on that a traditional wedding wasn’t for them and they added their own personal touches at every opportunity! From the DIY elements to the fact that a real life rainbow appeared at the end of the night, this wedding was a Rock n Roll Bride wedding through and through!

“We went for a rustic and vintage feel to the day,” Krystle told us. “The location helped us a lot deciding when the look and vibe, but once we found our venue I wanted to add a touch of 20s flare mixed with the rural countryside.”

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’!
