After falling in love with the incredible floral creations of Philippa Craddock at the recent Royal Wedding it felt only right that we work with our amazing, handpicked wedding suppliers from The List to bring you both inspirational and achievable ideas taking inspiration from this romantic and elegant look. I think you’d be hard pushed to find anyone, anywhere who failed to swoon over that stunning green foliage and white floral archway at the west door of St George’s Chapel and who doesn’t want a bit of that swoon on their own magical day?! Whilst Summer styling often includes pastel hues and rustic decor, today we’ve gathered inspiration for a somewhat more understated, refined look (aside from the flowers of course, they are off the chart) which should no longer be reserved for destination weddings.
The self titled ‘Wedstival’ of Emma-Jayne and John at Pimhill Barn in Shropshire is absolutely amazing from start to finish. I knew from looking at the first image captured by Clara Cooper Photography that their wedding would be fit to bursting with stunning details, fashion and foliage, not to mention emotion.
The embellished detail on Emma-Jayne’s Needle & Thread gown is truly exquisite and catches the light beautifully at the outdoor ceremony and speeches.
I’m in love with the wooden bar, the semi naked cake and don’t even get me started on all the lush greenery florals adorning all this fabulous wedding decor.
The whole day looks an absolute dream, especially the festival survival packs full of glitter. Where can I get one?
Make sure you are sitting comfortably, because this wedding deserves your undivided attention.
There are SO many stand out details at this Norfolk countryside wedding, so hold on to your hats while I give you a little run down.
Firstly Bride Lucy’s heirloom tiara, literally the crowning glory to her understated, but incredibly pretty polka dot tulle gown by Eponine London. Then there’s the lemon arch & tree’s decorating the church. Seriously WOW.
Now onto the entertainment, which included a fly by, a light show and a fireworks display, as well as various bands, an epic underground disco, chilli cocktails and BBQ’d lamb. See I told you it was good.
Capturing all the amazing-ness was RMW faves Story + Colour who makes you feel like you are right there celebrating with this gorgeous couple.
Get ready for a sunny coastal wedding in South Africa that exudes love & happiness, and an abundance of style.
Both the decor and fashion were minimal, but oh my did they have maximum impact. Bride Lol’s bespoke backless gown in particular is the epitome of chic and proves the statement ‘less is more’ sometimes couldn’t be more appropriate. The bridesmaids looked just as elegant in their white gowns, with their bouquets of foliage popping against the crisp hue.
Starting with a gorgeous woodland ceremony with a fabulous geometric altar framing this wonderful couple as they say their vows and culminating in what looks like ‘the most’ beautiful and fun reception EVER in a glass marquee, with all the emotion captured perfectly by Michigan Behn Photography.

Bride Anne looks heavenly in a Mira Zwillinger gown with delicate embroidery that glimmers beautifully in the light, and the pale mint shade of her bridesmaids Ghost gowns couldn’t be more perfect for the theme.
Marianne Taylor Photography really has captured the essence of this gorgeous day. So make yourself comfortable and enjoy.
The sun is shining and the gorgeous serene and tranquil styling by D’amour et de deco of this inspiration shoot is washing over me and putting me in a rather jolly mood indeed.
The dreamy French Riviera location is mind blowing and the exquisite foliage decor only enhances its natural beauty. Plus the fashion is to die for. Simple clean lines, incredibly elegant and stylish to boot.
I literally can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon then pouring of this dreamy set of images by Purewhite Photography. So sit back, relax and get ready for pure escapism and pretty.
If you like your fashion, then you’re going to LOVE this wedding. Solveig and Kenneth have created a minimal, stylish wedding with touches of greenery and seriously impressive sartorial choices…it’s a total feast for the fashion eyes.
The cool couple chose a gorgeous garden community venue, with views across the sea and held their ceremony outdoor, perfectly in-keeping with their green colour scheme. Enjoy this one lovelies, it’s all about simple, stylish choices and relishing time with friends and family.
When Pantone released their Colour of the Year for 2017, the whole team had a little chuckle as my detest for the colour green is well known. I just don’t really enjoy it when used in interiors or clothes…I can handle a green parka or a pair of wellies, but that’s about it. And it would seem that you lovely lot don’t seem to pick zingy greens for your Bridesmaids very often either – mint, sage, emerald, forest green hell yes, but greenery? No. Too zesty. Too lime. *Shudders*.
Then I read a little more about why they had chosen Greenery as the Colour of The Year and it all made sense. New beginnings, the chance to breathe deep, oxygenate and reinvigorate. The essence of vitality. It all sounds very inviting, especially after the crazy year that has been 2016. And I’m a big fan of using natural elements to bring prettiness to your wedding day. So today we’re embracing greenery, not in the outfits (don’t worry) but in the decor and details for your big day.
