Woodland Themed Wedding with Deer, Smokebombs & A Custom Pink Dress

Heather and Matt found wedding planning super enjoyable. They loved spending so much time together, making all the decisions as a team and going to wedding fairs! For the theme of the day they wanted to focus on the outdoors, and even for the indoor portions, they chose things that reflected their love of nature. Influenced by all the wonderful bees in the lavender surrounding the venue, their woodland theme was born.

On their tables they had tree trunk slices and wild flowers in jars. “We made all of the place cards and tried to add personal touches like hanging photographs were we could, neither of us are that crafty but we tried our best!” Heather laughed.

Rustic Meets Rock n Roll Woodland Barn Wedding with a Woodland Fairy Bride

Leslie and Dillon both love hiking and camping, so knew they wanted an outdoorsy wedding from the get-go. With the help of family friends’ pasture land, complete with idyllic stream and woodland, and a $10,000 budget, the couple set about creating the natural, rustic day of their dreams.

They saved a lot of money because of how generous their family and friends were. “All you have to do is ask for help and generally people are more than happy to do so,” said Leslie. “Working with people you know is also a huge benefit because its easy to get in touch with them and they really know what want. It can save so much in the end if you opt out of wedding planners and just ask friends to help you with the organisation and planning.”

Neutral & Natural Forest Wedding in South Africa

Louise and Johan wanted their forest wedding to reflect the surroundings. They chose a neutral and natural colour palette of nudes, greenery and some black. They invested a big portion of their £180k budget on the flowers, decorations and hiring the incredible Blomboy, to bring it all together for them on the day. It was also really important to them to make sure they had the very best food and drink for their guests.

“We were inspired by the area and surroundings”, said the bride. “I must admit Johan and I developed this weird attraction to internet culture, such as Vaporwave, plantwave and Lo-Fi so we tried to incorporate various elements from the subculture through things such as pink rope lights, large monstera leaves and so on.”

Autumnal, Vegan, Treehouse Wedding by Candlelight

The Alnwick Treehouse is a one-of-a-kind venue in The Alnwick Garden, Northumberland. Built from sustainably sourced Canadian cedar, Scandinavian redwood and English and Scots pine, it sits high in the treetops in a copse of mature lime trees and looks as if it has been there forever. What a spectacular spot to say your ‘I dos’! Liam and Jade knew it was the ideal place for their October 2018 wedding as soon as they saw it.

They wanted their autumn wedding to feel ethereal and to be surrounded by trees. “It was always going to be a forest wedding”, Jade explained. “Liam calls me a pixie and everyone at work has nicknamed me pixie (I have no idea why but everyone thinks I look like a pixie!) We have always taken our dog Beatrice on walks in the forest and pixies in the forest just became a thing for us. We are both vegan and both quite spiritual too. Liam more so than me, he loves to meditate and do yoga in the forest.”

Carlota and Pol are childhood sweethearts, though it took a few years for them to realise they were meant to be together. They reunited five years ago, and suddenly everything made sense. It was time for them to start a life together and to create a family. They were married in September just outside of Barcelona.

They were very clear what they wanted from their wedding day – a celebration of their love in a simple way. Dreaming of a place created by nature, their first stop was to find a venue. An old farm-house, full of history and surrounded by a forest, was the perfect setting for them. With warmth and authenticity as the cornerstones for the creation of their celebration, the feel of their day naturally unfolded.

Lithuanian Woodland Wedding with a Fairytale Picnic Reception

Tadas and Dovile adore nature and spend nearly all their free time walking, camping and relaxing in the great outdoors, so it was the perfect starting point for inspiration for their wedding. They wanted a day that was laid back, relaxed, and suited them as a couple.

They started their day by getting ready separately, and then meeting in the woods for a first look, quick dog walk and photos. They had initially intended to have an outdoor ceremony, but had to move it inside last minute due to the threat of rain. After a unique, personal service, they headed to their reception – a picnic by the lake! They had a relaxed afternoon with family and friends, enjoying good food, drinks and games.
