What Made Our Day Unique
I feel like we managed to have all the elements of a traditional wedding but with a relaxed and nonformal feel to them. We had our ceremony outside by the river under a big wooden arch. The celebrant told the story of how we met and our lives together and one of our friends did a short but sweet reading. All the food on the day was sharing style and we had a big tin bath with all the drinks in! We had giant Jenga and a coconut shy to keep the guests entertained throughout the day and a soul band in the evening. We wanted the day to feel like one big fun party, which I think we managed to achieve!
Wildflower BouquetThe vibe and styling inspiration for the day was natural and relaxed, keeping things close to nature, so the wildflower bouquet was a great choice and looked so pretty! The bridesmaids wore pale dresses with delicate detail that framed the bride in her boho-esque dress beautifully, carrying similar bouquets to the bride herself that were cut from the florists cutting garden. The tipi was adorned in fairy lights, flowers in milk churns and drinks in a big rusty bathtub which all tied together wonderfully to create this outdoor, relaxed celebration.
Inspiration & Styling
I would say the general vibe for the day was a relaxed and fun day. We wanted to have all our friends and family together eating and drinking great food and drinks and hopefully having a lovely time! The inspiration for the styling was the English countryside, mixed with a bit of boho. The flowers were seasonal British flowers grown in our florist’s cutting garden and the venue was a field by the River Trent, so we wanted the styling to be wild and natural so that it was keeping with our surroundings.
