Poppy and Mark’s colourful meadow festival wedding with outdoor ceremony, hay bale seating and bridesmaids in yellow maxi skirts
Charlie / 9 March 2017
Poppy and Mark’s colourful meadow festival wedding in Wales is not only full of inspiration and pretty details, but it just oozes love and fun. It’s a beautiful example of a British summer wedding at it’s best, with hay bale seating, sunflower yellow bridesmaid dresses, and romantic meadow photos.
This wedding was captured by Michael and Andrea of Bohemian Weddings, one of our recommended wedding photographers. If you’re on the hunt for photographers for your 2017 wedding, you could win your wedding photography with Bohemian Weddings this month via our blog – full details here on how to enter.
Here’s what Poppy and Mark said about them…
“We met our wonderful photographers, Michael and Andrea of Bohemian Weddings, at a friend’s wedding the previous year (Lizzy and Graeme had found them by contacting The Natural Wedding Company after being let down last minute).
We wanted to capture the feel of the day rather than have hours of posed photographs, and as we’d seen them previously we knew they would be perfect. It felt like having friends take our photos rather than official photographers, and their friendliness and ease spread to all the guests throughout the day.”

Wimbledon has a special place in my heart as it was the place where I was born and spent the first few years of my life, so when this beautiful country house spring shoot landed in my inbox I was especially excited to share it with you.
This recently renovated south London country house wedding venue is set within the stunning Morden Hall Park, which is run by the National Trust. The park contains a variety of natural landscapes, including parkland, a river, meadow and marshland – an idyllic backdrop for this spring wedding shoot.
Photographer Eva Tarnok told me that they wanted to reflect the elegance of this historic venue, but also to showcase the natural beauty surrounding it – I think they did a great job.
Rainy romantic wedding shoot with rustic and vintage styling in the grounds of a Cornish cutting garden
Charlie / 21 March 2016
I have literally poured over this shoot for hours in a bid to narrow down the beautiful images – there are just too many that I wanted to share. This rainy romantic Cornish wedding shoot features a real couple, a vintage bike, spring florals, and a stunningly decorated ceremony arch.
More and more I’m seeing inspiration shoots that use real couples, and I think it is so refreshing. Just like the fairytale woodland shoot we recently featured, that also featured a real-life couple, the images today just ooze with love and genuine warmth and fun. That’s what I want to see from an inspirational wedding shoot. I want to be inspired by that authenticity against a backdrop of gorgeous and interesting props and styling. I have a feeling that’s what you would like to see as well.
Having spent many of many childhood holidays in Devon and Cornwall, this shoot captures everything I associate with this magical area on a wet rainy day – the damp vibrant moss, the moody greys, and splashes of colour, a palette taken straight from the towering hedgerows of these counties.
So it’s with a huge thank you to the lovely Gemma from Box and Cox Vintage Hire down in Cornwall that I get to share all this loveliness with you. She styled the shoot and showcased some of her collection of vintage hire items, including their new wooden arch which was so spectacularly dressed. The location was The Cornish Cutting Garden and they also created the stunning florals. Over to Gemma to tell you more…
Ciara and Matt’s relaxed outdoor wedding with vibrant red accents, handpicked florals and an amazing eclectic reception
Samantha / 28 January 2015
Another big thank you to my lovely colleague Samantha for putting together this real wedding feature…
Well our first real wedding of 2015 is an absolute scorcher, just like the beautiful weather that shone for the gorgeous outdoor wedding of Ciara and Matt, who had the first and only garden wedding at the beautiful Anglesey Abbey Gardens. The setting could not have been more perfect for their vibrant, relaxed day on 31st August. Taking inspiration from wedding blogs (including our very own pages) and Pinterest they created the ‘natural, summery, vintage, outdoorsy, chilled and informal’ wedding they dreamt of.
The day was beautifully captured in the most stunning wedding film by TNWC recommended suppliers Bright Star Films, and as Ciara explained choosing a videographer was a priority for them,
‘For us the video took precedence, and with the help of Sinead and Kieran at Bright Star Films, we are the proud owners of what we consider to be the best wedding video of all time! (we’re biased….of course!) Their video will forever be treasured by us both, and all of our family and friends!’
Wow! Now if that hasn’t bought a tear to your eye!
Read on to hear from bride Ciara about all the lovely details wrapped up in that gorgeous video with great images captured by some talented friends as well as stills from their wedding film by Bright Star Films.

Last week Mr Rigg and I spent a week away in the Perigord region of France, staying in a rustic little gite on a goat farm. One of my enduring memories from our holiday is of beautiful, big blousy roses clambering everywhere in all shades of pink and peach.
I thought it would be nice to showcase some rose inspiration for weddings evoked by our trip, so I have been busy scouring the internet to bring your my favourites.
I don’t think of myself as a huge rose fan, probably because I immediately think of those tightly closed bud roses in a deep blood red colour, which aren’t really to my taste. But there are some gorgeous roses out there that I do love – the more old-fashioned and garden-grown style with big loose blooms in pretty shades. I hope you enjoy my ode to roses…
Mix old-fashioned roses with other garden finds...
A bridal bouquet of soft pink roses of varying sizes…
Charlie / 24 September 2011
Well what can I say – the photographer who shot this wedding captures the most beautiful moments. Not only are the photos amazing, but the wedding itself was pretty cool. And the details I love the most? The bride’s elegant bouquet that is like a delicate cloud, and this rustic arrangement over the entrance – the peach pink ribbon in the middle makes it.
For me it feels so quintessentially English – I’d like to be able to decorate my front door like this once in a while. There is something very earthy and ‘olde England’ about it.
