English bluebell wood wedding inspiration for Spring couples // The Natural Wedding Company // M & J Photography

I have no doubt that today’s bluebell wood wedding inspiration shoot will absolutely blow you away. It certainly had me Googling the nearest bluebell wood to dance among. And you’ll be pleased to know that this stunning location could be the magical setting for your big day.

The shoot was lovingly created and styled by Fern and Field, the team behind the weddings at Farnell Farm in Kent. It features dreamy whimsical wedding dresses, outdoor woodland ceremony inspiration, tipi tents hidden in secluded fields and nature inspired details. Plus two of our recommended suppliers are featured.

Polly from Fern and Field told us more about the shoot, the inspiration, and the venue…

Iridescent blue wedding cake adorned with delicate white flowers

If you’d have told me I’d be sharing a blue wedding cake here on our my Cake Love feature I wouldn’t have believed you…but here I am sharing a blue wedding cake.

But isn’t it pretty?

It’s a rather nice shade of blue with an iridescent sort of shimmer to it (not sure it could be achieved with natural colourings, but oh well!) and the addition of those blouse white blooms makes for a rather romantic wedding cake without being sickly sweet.

Colour Crush #4 - diesel blue and mercury grey

I love today’s colour scheme from Gabrielle and think it would be a beautiful palette for a New Year’s wedding, and what about stealing inspiration from those lovely star candle centrepieces? You can find more colour scheme inspiration from Gabrielle at The Green Gables by checking out her Colour Crush series so far.

Lighter colour palettes may be more popular than dark but deeper shades can give a winter wedding a wonderfully warm and cosy feeling. This colour palette of diesel blues and greys may be a little unusual but imagine it against a snowy backdrop with candles and exposed wood.

I can picture this palette working brilliantly in a cosy barn venue with twinkling fairy lights, lots of greenery and touches of light blues and greys to lift the deeper diesel colour.

What do you think, can you imagine using this palette in your winter wedding?

Star sign wedding table plan

I wanted something a little different to share today and I adore the dark blue and gold of this star sign wedding inspiration.  As a teenager I was just a bit obsessed by star signs (anyone else?), I even had a star sign board game.  I still find star signs fascinating, although I’m less obsessed, but definitely feel I’m a lot like mine – Taurus in case you’re wondering!

I’ve not seen any other wedding inspiration that incorporates star signs, but I think this does it so elegantly with the use of dark blue and gold, and I especially love the above idea of creating a star sign themed table plan.  How fun to use the constellations as the focal point with your guests’ names round the edge of them.

You can also incorporate other subtle touches that reflect star signs and the night sky (perfect I think for a dusk wedding with tables twinkling with tea lights), such as table numbers with flecked gold card and this fun idea of a star-shaped place names slotted between the fork.

Blossom covered wedding cake

What a lovely idea this is – pressing delicate spring blossom into the icing of your wedding cake. I wonder whether blossom is edible?  I imagine that fruit tree blossom should be edible – any of my flower businesses know the answer?

This cake is particularly pretty with its powder blue icing and pink blossom, although I’m not so keen on the rabbit topper – although if you could find a cute pair of rabbit figurines I think it would make for a lovely spring or Easter wedding cake.

wild and loose September bouquet from BareBlooms

I thought it would be nice to follow up from Rhiannon and Richard’s wild and natural Welsh wedding (it’s so beautiful – you must have a look if you haven’t seen it already) with more details of the wild looking bouquet Rhiannon carried.  The bouquet in question was created by the wonderful Chloe of BareBlooms who is featured in The Natural Wedding Company directory.

I got in touch with Chloe to find out exactly what flowers she used to create Rhiannon’s bouquet, and to find out what look she had been asked to create.  Chloe told me, “Rhiannon was so relaxed about her bouquet – she wanted something loose and wild and not too fussy.”

Today it’s all about my wedding accessories – from my vintage inspired shoes to the heirloom lace veil, natural make-up to a gorgeous garters.  It’s all here including the details of how I came to choose them for our wedding.

The Shoes

I spent ages looking for the ‘right’ shoes.  So many wedding shoes are elegant but modern, and my dress was so delicate and had a country feel to it, that I wanted something with an old-fashioned feel.  I also didn’t want really high heels as most of our wedding was spent walking on grass.

In the end I came across the gorgeous designs by Diane Hassall and fell in love with a pair called ‘Liliana’ – I managed to track them down to a bridal shop in nearby Knutsford and despite being loads more than I’d ever imagined spending, they came home with me.  They came with a choice of floaty organza or velvet ties – I went for the velvet ones.

I particuarly love this picture above of my shoes on the windowsill in my parent’s bedroom, with all those personal bits you find in people’s houses in the background.

The Veils

I hadn’t planned on wearing any veil…and I ended up having two!  My mum spent ages trying to track down the family veil, which she had worn when she married my dad, and my granny before her, and so on back through the generations.

I love this photo of my little sister Izzy holding my parents wedding album open at a photo of my mum wearing the veil, with it hanging behind Izzy from the cupboard…
