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…

A spring wedding cake covered in lilac flowers and blossom

Did someone say spring was on it’s way? It’s been teasing us in recent weeks with some really lovely sunny days…and then it reverts to grey drizzle. The daffodils and crocus that are popping up around my garden assure me spring IS on its way, likewise my fruit trees are starting to bud – how about yours?

So in celebration that spring might be peeking over the horizon, here is a wonderful late spring wedding cake to inspire all you May brides. Take one simple white tiered wedding cake and absolutely drench it in lilac flowers and the odd artfully placed blossom.

I am a May baby, and undoubtedly biased to this wonderful month (I love everything about it and even chose to get married then), but can you get much lovelier than this wedding cake? Not much lovelier I don’t think!

Old fashioned bouquet of roses

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..

I love this mixture of the hot pink blousey roses with the orange sherbet coloured rosehips – I think arranged in an eclectic collection of jugs and vases they would make lovely wedding centrepieces.

Choose a selection of different sized and styles of roses in a similar colour and intermingle them with other locally grown flowers, such as zinnias, daisies and even some tendrils of jasmine.

fragrant spring wedding flowers

I am loving this combination of greens and deep purples when it comes to wedding flowers at the moment.  This bouquet uses Queen Anne’s Lace, which is very similar to cow parsley which we used tonnes of at our wedding and the inclusion of Lilac would made for a very fragrant bouquet or arrangment.

Perfect for a late spring wedding when cow parsley and Lilac is in bloom – ask your wedding florist what time of year these are at their best and available locally, or if they grow them.  If your heart is really set on a particular flower then you should consider getting married at the time of year when it’s naturally in bloom – I really wanted lots of cow parsley, so we choose May for our wedding as the Cotswold lanes are covered in the stuff.

A couple of weeks ago my mom and I went on a lovely flower arranging workshop hosted by Jo and Rachel of Green & Gorgeous Flowers.

Not only was it great to meet Jo and Rachel, but we also learnt some fab tips on how to arrange garden grown flowers – perfect as in a week’s time we’ll be doing all the flowers for my wedding.

Green & Gorgeous Flowers is based on a dairy farm in a truly beautiful part of Oxfordshire.  They have a barn where the workshop was held, a smaller studio filled to the brim with vintage crockery, and about 2 and a half acres of flowers.

Vintage lilac country wedding

Charlie / 9 March 2011

I just love every photo from Fotopastele – all their photos have such vivid and vibrant colours and are set in stunning locations.  From the purple and pink bunches of lilac, to the vintage chairs, the old basket and the gorgeous green field of dandelion clocks.
