Fairy Lights and dream catchers decorated this stunning venue for the ultimate rustic barn wedding. The bride looked absolutely beautiful in a Riki Dalal lace and applique dress and flower crown for the outdoor ceremony. And we can't forget those show-stopping flower displays, which were lovingly created by the mother of the bride, they are beautiful! After a long engagement, this wedding was definitely worth the wait!

What Made Our Day Unique

My Mum, Jackie, offered to do ALL the flowers for us! This was perfect for me as I could be really involved in the process and I fully trusted my Mum as she loves flowers even more than I do! We discussed everything I wanted early on and we realised it was going to be a huge job for her but she was adamant to give me the Wedding flowers I had always dreamed of. The week of the wedding we went to a large flower market in London to pick all the flowers that I wanted which was an amazing experience to have with my Mum and I will never forget how personal and special it felt to pick our Wedding flowers together. The day and night before the Wedding my Mum and my Auntie Gill, worked extremely hard to get it all done and together they created the most stunning Wedding flower arrangements I have ever seen. Hanging pieces from the Ceremony barn, 20-floor arrangements down the aisle, all the bridal bouquets and groomsmen boutonnière, 11 table centerpieces and a long arrangement across the top table.

Barn Wedding

This Essex venue was the perfect location for a stunning barn wedding. An outdoor wedding ceremony was followed by a reception where fairy lights were showered over the tables and interior of the barn venue, creating the most romantic backdrop for the spring wedding. Every aspect of this wedding was picture perfect, including the bridal party who were wearing pink bridesmaid dresses that complimented the bridal gown and groom's accessories perfectly.

Inspiration & Styling

I wanted a relaxed yet stylish bohemian look for our wedding. Mainly because neither of us are into overly luxurious things and I basically love everything boho. We are both really into nature and animals and I am a true soulful hippie at heart so I wanted this to reflect in the day. I had always dreamed of an outside wedding covered in greenery and flowers but it was important to me that nothing looked too over the top or overdressed. The main desired vibe for us was that ourselves and our guests felt relaxed and had a proper good fun time with lots of good music, good food and were well oiled with lots of wine!
