Inspiration

One of the best things to happen to the wedding world in recent years is the rise in the number of couples having outdoor ceremonies. We have featured some seriously incredible weddings that look simply idyllic and some of my all time favourite weddings happen to be those that truly embrace the great outdoors. If you're looking for a venue where is not only a possibility, but also be an incredibly beautiful possibility - then look no further than Fern & Field. We are really proud to have them on our recommended supplier directory, The List, as what they offer is just so unique. And this inspiration shoot from them really highlights that. The whole shoot is a bohemian dream, with cascading braids adorned with flowers, foraged bouquets and dreamy waterside light. And if Fern & Field has really caught your eye, they are holding an open day on Saturday 15th October so do make a note in your diary.

The Inspiration

Polly at Fern & Field: Inspired by the painting Bartolomeo Guidobono, Allegory of Spring and a family link to an Edwardian interest in Botany, through my Great Great Grandfather Charles Hoddle who in 1911 grew unusual plants {of the time} such as orchids in his glasshouse. Included in the shoot are a number of family heirlooms including an antique gold Rolex, christening cup and envelopes given to my mother by her grandfather. Shot at Pookwell Lake at our venue Farnell Farm. We used foliage from the surroundings, such as ferns, wild honeysuckle and apple blossom. The choice of flowers were inspired by the kind you would have found in a Edwardian garden. All British Flowers, supplied and grown less than three miles from the venue on Blue Hen flower farm, then arranged lovingly by Girl Flower. Hair styling and the inclusion of flowers was inspired by Edwardian weddings and paintings by Bartolomeo Guidobono. Livvy has managed to capture the antique warmth, which I hope you will agree beautifully flows through the shots.
