We are both huge nature and film lovers. We got engaged in a treehouse, so getting married in a forest was very fitting. I work in nursing in GP. I’d tell patients about the venue and they’d reply: “The burial place? It’s beautiful. I didn’t know they did weddings there too!” Our favourite film is Lord of the Rings. We had a Lord of the Rings theme flowing throughout our day- elvish during the vows, signing of a LOTR book, LOTR themed tables, pizza puns and cake. Oh, and deer making a cameo was very unique too!

Sunflower Wedding Bouquet

We had an extremely chilled and fun day! The forest was already stunning, we just wanted to enhance what was already there. We colour coordinated our favourite colours around my sunflower wedding bouquet and hair. Everything else seemed to fall into place. Very eclectic, mismatched decorations and DIY.


Ryan's was seeing Annabel for the first time walking down the aisle. He also enjoyed the pizza too. Annabel's was probably when we just finished the ceremony. Walking down the aisle with massive smiles on our faces. Being in a forest with our family and friends dressed up fancy around us, (during a pandemic) was very surreal and special.

Annabel wanted her bridesmaids to be happy and comfy on the day, so she let them pick which colour and style they liked best.

The suppliers are an important part of the day, we were over the moon with all ours. If you have great vendors, you’ll have an amazing day. We had the wonderfully talented Grace who is a Rock My Wedding Recommended supplier. She is very much the same vibe as us, so she was perfect for capturing our day.

Annabel's Sunflower wedding bouquet has certainly made us smile. It has also reminded us of Phoebe and Stu's vibrant sunflower wedding. If you're still searching for a florist or need more advice on wedding flowers listen to our Podcast for lots of tips.
