You may want to get your pinning fingers ready because this outdoor woodland wedding at Upthorpe Wood is full of fabulous DIY decor and ideas. There are macramé and dreamcatcher hangings, plus glitter stations, ‘bake off’ cake tables and a whole lot more to boot!
Jenny and Tom are the smiliest of couples and their entire boho wedding is a delight to pore over from start to finish. Enjoy.
To quote the bride “we had a bit of a hotchpotch of things, but it worked!”
Oh my did it! And the results are spectacular.
We love it when couples really go for it and incorporate everything they love. Even more so when we hear they’ve had a go at creating some of the beautiful displays you see before you themselves.
The lovely Leila and David had a mash-up of all the things they love and the results of this rustic, boho, outdoor summer garden wedding at Herons Farm are amazing. They incorporated lots of DIY decor, including a hoop table plan and a chalkboard unplugged ceremony sign. Plus wooden crates, family portraits, and a whole lot more for you to pin and swoon over.
Leila wears the prettiest sequin and tulle Needle and Thread gown with a flower crown, and David ops for Chinos, braces and a bow tie. Seriously it doesn’t get much cooler than that.
Capturing the magic was Carla Blain, who is one of our wedding supplier directory members and is fast becoming one of my favourite photographers. Her portraits are always full of emotion, as you’ll see below. Take the epic woodland smoke bomb pics for example, which as you know from a recent post team RMW wrote on Smoke Bombs I’m a HUGE fan of.

You can’t throw a party for your friends and family, wear a beautiful dress and shoes, have pretty flowers and expect it to be free. I know, life is tough hey 😉 BUT there are things that you can do to keep a lid on your budget and still have a beautiful wedding day…
Jaws are going too hit the floor, and pinning fingers are going to go crazy as soon as you see bride Anna’s Claire Pettibone Whitney bridal gown complete with cape!
Next you’ll be swooning over all the DIY decor and fabulous florals that make up this country wedding. As well as all the beautiful couple and wedding party portraits captured by the oh so talented Camilla Arnhold Photography.
There’s certainly nothing blue about this Monday morning.
This has to be the ultimate in DIY, the bride making her own wedding dress! And boy what a gown it is too. I’m so pleased Kerri has now taken up bridal design at Kindling Bridal as she has definitely got the talent for it. The lace, the cut, those sleeves and V back are all making me swoon with delight.
The sentimental homemade efforts continue with all the decor for the tipi reception, with loved ones keen to pitch in and help make cakes and crafts too. Its no wonder the day was full of smiles, love and laughter, and I bet made Tim Dunk’s job at photographing the happy occasion a dream.
Preparations for this DIY bohemian wedding started by clearing out the cow sheds at Bride Zee’s parents home for the fabulously creative barn reception.
The styling, decor and details were all carried out by the couple or their super talented family and friends. The wild flower arrangements were all courtesy of Zee’s grandmothers amazing floristry skills, and lovely friends stepped up and made the dream catchers hanging in the tress at the outdoor ceremony.
The gloriously heartfelt ceremony took place in the garden under a foliage arbour with the guests seated on haystacks. Zee looked a picture amongst the natural setting in a flower crown and boho lace gown by Spell and the Gypsy, as did her maids in floral dresses by Auguste.
Can we also talk about the breathtaking couples portraits by Nigel John, the one of Zee’s billowing veil literally made me gasp it was so beautiful. Plus there are pineapples, festoon lights and pure joy every where you look.
Homespun and beautiful are exactly what spring to mind for this bright back garden wedding. I just love it when a couple pour their absolute heart and soul into their wedding and it’s apparent for all to see in the DIY decor and vibes of the day.
A rainbow of colour definitely fills all the images by Marianne Chua Photography and can be seen in the hanging ribbons, fabulous florals and rather helpful tub of sunnies. Not to mention all the lovely stationery and signs designed by friends.
Bride and groom Christina and Jordan are absolutely beauts and will have you smiling from ear to ear. So grab a chair and take five to enjoy every moment.
Well aren’t these two the sweetest?! We love a laidback festival style wedding, especially when the couple have poured their heart and soul into creating such a lovely day for their guests. Hayley and Al pretty much created everything you see below and the final result is simply joyful. Wildflowers, hand illustrated signs, ribbons and pompoms galore, it’s a riot of colour from start to finish.
Hayley looks gorgeous in her low backed gown and Al looks rather dapper in jeans and a waistcoat, we’re loving his laid back look. Images come from Livvy Hukins, enjoy!
