Wow! Don’t mind us, we’re just taking in this gorgeous rustic romance theme wedding in Devon! Adrianne & Edd wanted that rustic-luxe vibe with traditional wedding outfits, including a stunning tiara from Recommended supplier, Lace & Favour, and a unique and rustic wedding venue. Their day is full of DIY and pre-loved decor as well as pasties and vegan churros in the evening as a nod to Devon. We love it all! Recommended supplier, Carina Tess, was the perfect photographer to capture this romantic day with each and every photo exuding love and warmth!

Rustic romance wedding theme for Exmouth Country Lodge wedding in Devon

As someone who experiences anxiety, it was important to me that I felt comfortable with all my suppliers (especially for getting ready in the morning - my glam team were the best!), so we chose lots of suppliers through recommendations or word of mouth. How suppliers interacted with us from the first contact was important and we can confidently say that everyone involved with our day was amazing.


Rustic Romance Wedding Theme

As you can already tell, Adrianne & Edd chose to go for an elegant rustic romance wedding theme. Adrianne wanted a classic bridal look with the traditional princess wedding dresstiara, and veil but she also wanted to contrast this with an informal and fun wedding venue. The couple got to achieve the best of both worlds thanks to the rustic setting of Exmouth Country Lodge with lots of exposed wood, concrete, and brick. Adrianne & Edd added some elegant decor with ribbons and dried flowers as an inexpensive and effective option that looks incredible.

DIY Wedding Decor

Adrianne & Edd replaced a lot of traditions with fun and something that really reflected them as a couple. Instead of a wedding cake, the couple asked their guests to bring in baked goods and then Adrianne & Edd cut their favourite one! They embraced Devon with their catering. The couple had BBQ-sharing platters, pasties in the evening and some vegan churros! Adrianne & Edd also decided to DIY most of their decor with hand-planted daffodils, preloved crockery, ribbons and more! The decor becomes so much more sentimental with handcrafted items made with love from friends and family.

Making more sustainable wedding choices isn't difficult! Think pre-loved items and vegan food options!

Really consider what’s important to you as a couple and where you want to focus your energy and funds. Piece together elements from previous weddings that enhanced your day. Fancy food, professional decor and a traditional cake weren’t for us. Don’t be afraid to break the mould. I’ll look at my ring every day for the rest of my life, so that was something I prioritised. Think about the space you have and what's going to have the most impact. Look for whatever you need second-hand - the local charity shops were our purse's (and the planet's) best friend.
