Chloe Ellis' vision to create an intimate micro wedding in a traditionally large venue has us completely floored. Pampas grass bouquets are the perfect choice for a dreamy boho setting. Pampas grass adds softness against rattan seating, woven rugs and autumnal tones. If you're planning a small autumn wedding, this shoot should give you some serious inspo on how to create a laid back vibe, whilst fulfilling your dreams of a dramatic pampas grass bouquet and floral display!

Pampas grass bouquet and blush pink veil for a dreamy lakeside ceremony at Preston Court.

Our vision was to design an intimate micro wedding, at a venue which usually caters for the larger weddings, Preston Court in Canterbury. The ceremony was captured on Juliana's Island which sits within the front lake.

Helen from Blubelle Creative designed the most beautiful bouquets and flower displays. Which worked perfectly with the styling from Hire Love.


The wedding breakfast was held in the smaller barn, often known as the 'Bar' creating an intimate feel. The evening reception took place under the Maypole full of Festoon lights, a cosy set up was created to demonstrate a new way of having your evening reception.


A boho wedding is not complete without a Rue De Seine Bridal Dress. The blush veil was also worn during the ceremony, and looked incredible during dusk. Louisa created soft romantic curls for the Bride, followed by a beautiful updo for the evening.

Chloe captured the perfect transition between summer and autumn with neutral toned pampas grass bouquets.

The inspiration & styling behind this shoot was to create a micro wedding with an autumnal boho feel. Preston Court's vision was to show couples how they can accommodate for intimate weddings also, without the venue feeling too spacious.

Whatever vibe you're going for, pampas grass is the trend that keeps on giving. If you've got your eye on a larger venue but not keen on having a guest list to match, why not fill the space with epic floral arrangements instead? Just because you're not going big, doesn't mean you can't embellish your wedding with a pampas grass bouquet... or five. You know you want to!
