Nikki and Ben’s rustic Pimhill Barn wedding with a pastel dahlia bouquet, hessian jam jar lanterns and gypsophila buttonholes
Joanna / 21 March 2017
This week’s Real Wedding is delicately rustic, pretty and full of pastel florals and sprigs of gypsophila. Set on a beautifully sunny July day at Pimhill Barn in the fields of rural Shropshire, Nikki and Ben focused their plans around their extraordinary venue. They chose handmade signage and cut log decor to complement the 16th Century vaulted ceilings of the barn.
Nikki and Ben decided upon Amy Taylor Imaging Photography to capture the best day of their lives, a photographer from our eco wedding directory whose photographs we always enjoy. You can see other weddings from photographer Amy that we’ve featured here.
Bride Nikki caught up with us to give us the inside knowledge on the couple’s planning and ideas for their rustic Pimhill Barn wedding…
Beth and Robert’s spring Devon farm wedding with foraged wildflowers, yurts and a feast of local food
Charlie / 14 March 2017
Beth and Robert’s spring Devon farm wedding is overflowing with many of my wedding “favourites”. Favourites such as…getting married in May, spring wildflowers, and yurts. Captured by our friend Jennie Hill Photography, this down-to-earth wedding is a real family affair, with a sprinkling of handmade details and pretty touches.
Although the wedding was held at the family farm in Devon, it is dotted with elements that share the couples love of Scotland. As we sit here in March with hints of warmer weather and spring flowers starting to bloom, I’m certain this spring Devon farm wedding is going to get you dreaming of spring.
Claire and George’s country farm wedding with tractor transport, hay bale seating and pink floral bridesmaids dresses
Joanna / 14 February 2017
Our Valentine’s Day Real Wedding for 2017 is just gorgeous. You’re certain to love the couple and their particularly personal country farm wedding, and I’m sure your heart will melt when you see the photographs of their little boy giving a speech at the reception. Adorable.
Groom George is from an agricultural background and as such, the couple decided that there was only one way they could plan their big day. Tractors, bunting, hay bales, a tractor wheel seating plan, straw dollies and wellies filled with flowers.
Bride Claire got in touch to share their day with us after being inspired by our site so I’ll hand over to her to give us the details…

Today’s beautiful DIY village fete wedding is that of a couple you may recognise from these very pages – Vicky and Steve, one of our TNWC Real Bride couples from last year. We followed them through their epic DIY-ing journey and now we get to share in their gorgeous day and enjoy all their efforts.
After being together over six years Steve proposed to Vicky on holiday in the beautiful Skopelos. Since then with friends and family on board, and with Steve’s handy occupation as a builder, they have gone about creating the most wonderful projects to fill their day with personal touches, all of which you can find out about here.
Hannah and Gregg’s modern folk wedding at an English manor house with an elegant two piece wedding dress
Samantha / 11 August 2016
Today’s couple Hannah and Gregg are so effortlessly cool and their beautiful modern folk wedding perfectly reflects this. Their stunningly simple style truly allows the emotion and enjoyment of all involved to shine through from the brides’s two piece and flower crown to the radiant smiles beaming across everyone’s faces.
Not only do the photos of their day showcase that it really isn’t always the little decor details that count but they are testament to the importance of finding yourself a brilliant photographer. Hannah and Gregg’s big day was shot by one of our recommended suppliers, the lovely Oxi Photography. Oxana has a real talent for perfectly capturing the essence and emotion of people, which on your wedding day when you are surrounded by all your loved ones, is one of the most important things.
We will now pass you over to the bride Hannah to share with you the finer details about their big day…
Fern and Dominic’s woodland bird and country flower inspired wedding at their idyllic Somerset village
Charlie / 13 March 2016
This beautiful summer woodland bird and country flower inspired wedding is a delight to share, not only because it’s full of lovely details that will undoubtedly inspire many of our brides, but also because it’s the wedding of one last years TNWC Real Brides, Fern (find all her blog posts here).
Fern and Dominic planned a natural down-to-earth wedding in their home village Montacute in Somerset. This idyllic rural village provided a pretty backdrop against which they celebrated their marriage, and wove into their wedding day some of the things they love most – woodland birds and country garden blooms. Over to Fern to share her wedding day…
Fern + Dominic, August 2015
Our wonderful August wedding was everything that we had hoped for. It was really important to us right from the beginning for our day to be really welcoming, intimate occasion to share with our family. We had a very small wedding party with only one bridesmaid, best man and one usher, but this was right for us. Lots of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the relaxed family atmosphere.
Samantha / 2 August 2015
Prepare yourself for the most exquisite wedding today! This charming Spanish village wedding is full of natural and rustic details and is bound to inspire more couples to go for a down-to-earth and intimate wedding celebration.
Thank you to Barcelona based wedding planners Detallerie who created all the beautiful details for this wedding and sent it over to us to feature. Before we dive into sharing all the details, why not take a few minutes to watch their sweet wedding film…
Carolina and Tati got married last July in a beautiful little Spanish village called Empordà, in north Catalonia, where the groom’s family own a house. Having met at a friend’s party, they decided they wanted a cosy wedding with just their families and closed friends.
This was also the reason that they chose to celebrate their wedding in the groom’s family home, for a relaxed and down-to-earth party. Tati’s family are olive oil producers, so they chose a natural and organic theme and decorated the house and garden with lots of olive branches.
The bride wore a custom made dress, Menbur shoes for touch of glamour, and the earrings she wore were a family heirloom that belonged to the great grandmother of the groom. Carolina carried a beautiful countryside inspired bouquet, designed by Detallerie and created by Moshi Floristería.
