It's jumper season, so why not incorporate this casual wedding attire into your outfit? For one it looks incredible teamed with the exquisite gowns and trainers. And two, it'll keep you warm long past dusk meaning those, golden hour portraits won't leave you feeling chilly.  Continuing the cosy feeling are the warm yellow and orange flowers by Recommended florist Dove & Myrtle, and brass accents at the incredible Gooseberry house, glasshouse wedding venue.

Casual wedding attire including jumpers and trainers for an intimate wedding with yellow flowers and brass accents.

Jaw-dropping florals, an abundance of cherry blossom and the most outstanding antique brass doors!

A newly renovated Victorian glasshouse 'The Gooseberry House' is located on a family-owned pick-your-own farm in the heart of Sussex. With acres of orchards, vines and crops, the rural setting is a perfect location for couples in search of a relaxed, modern venue with bundles of charm and character. Whilst the glasshouse has the capacity for up to 100 guests, it also lends itself to more intimate weddings. This is where the initial shoot concept stemmed from.


With intimate weddings here to stay, we wanted to create a space that illustrated the advantage of a smaller celebration, which can often mean a closer focus on the finer details by not having to cut back on elements couples most desire. Taking the Pantone colour of 2021 (Yellow) as our base colour theme, we included brassy accents (inspired by the bold antique brass doors) and soft peachy tones, giving all the wonderful suppliers the most gorgeous colour palette to work with.

Casual Wedding Attire

For look one we wanted to show a contrast between modern glam whilst located in a rural rustic setting. The bride featured a fitted dress by Anna Georgina with a Jesus Peiro feather jacket, kindly provided by Morgan Davis Bridal. The look was paired with the ‘Celeste’ lace-up shoes by Emmy London. The groom wore a classic three-piece tweed suit by Menswearr. For the second look, we wanted the personalities of the models to come forward, so we stripped the attire right back. Using a skateboard, trainers and knitwear by Marry & Bride we were able to do just that!

Who needs heating when you have cosy knitwear and a yellow and orange colour scheme to keep you warm.

As for the tablespace, this was a show stopper! We even had a few tears amongst the team! Bear Claw Catering created some utterly gorgeous dishes which were beautifully displayed along the table shelves by Toast. The sharing boards are proving particularly popular for the seasons ahead. Whilst sharing styled dishes are a great way of dining, they can often restrict the space on the table, meaning cutting back on all the pretties such as flowers and candles. We wanted to provide a practical solution and illustrate how the table can still be decorated.
