Bride and groom in spring meadow // Jennie Hill Photography // The Natural Wedding Company

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.

Tattooed boho bride // Photography Konstantin Taufner-Mikulitsch // The Natural Wedding Company

I’m quite sure if you’re a regular reader you will remember this magical fairytale woodland wedding shoot from Austria sent to us by the lovely Stephanie of Mademoiselle Fee – well we have another beautiful shoot to share from her today.

A boho picnic wedding with a barefoot bride

Set on a weather worn wooden dock over an Austrian lake, this English picnic and wildflower inspired shoot brings you just the right amount of down-to-earth boho wedding inspiration.

From a barefoot bride in a 1970s-esque crochet wedding dress to the understated (and therefore perfect in my books) tea party, what I love most about the shoots created by Mademoiselle Fee and her team is the genuine, heartfelt love and emotions that emanate from the pictures. Yes, the detailings are beautiful, but it’s the tenderness that is captured, woven in with the pretty details, that make her shoots truly special.

A homage to English picnics and wildflowers

The inspiration from the shoot came from both the lake itself and a flower crown, from one of our own dear friends, Amy Swann. Stephanie told me:

“I love this place at the lake, so do all our friends, and when I saw Amy Swann’s flower crown, I immediately had this picture in my mind of a relaxed couple lying on the deck. Some years ago, when I was engaged, I found The Natural Wedding Company and have been following your inspiring blog posts ever since. This shoot is a homage to English picnics and wildflowers, to bunting and homemade cakes. I love this outdoor way of enjoying life and nature.”

A hedgerow wedding bouquet

Charlie / 29 July 2009

desireehaighphotography

Sometimes you come across an image that you just have to share.  These photographs from Desiree Haigh are beautiful and portray the kind of wedding I really love.  One that is simple and laid-back with beautiful subtle details.  I love the combination of the grooms tie-less suit, the brides vintage dress and the bunch of cow parsley – in the US I understand it is called Queen Anne’s Lace, or at least there’s a very similar plant by that name.

I absolutely adore cow parsley, which can be seen seen bobbing in our English hedgerows and verges in May.  In my home county of Gloucestershire the lanes are crowned with foamy white flowers that sway in the breeze.  It is one of my favourite time’s of year.
