Poppy and Mark's colourful meadow festival wedding with outdoor ceremony, hay bale seating and bridesmaids in yellow maxi skirts // Bohemian Weddings // The Natural Wedding Company

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.”

Yellow enamel teapot with earthenware pot of purple and orange flowers

Wow, where to follow on from a lovely day on the blog following the news that my husband Nick and I are expecting a baby!  Thanks so much to everyone who’s left me a comment, or shared their good wishes on Facebook and Twitter.

I thought it would be nice to just share some pretty inspiration to finish off your working day and take you through to the evening.  This cheerful image of a rather yummy yellow enamel teapot alongside an earthenware pot of purple and orange blooms seemed rather fitting for such a happy day.

On Monday evening I had a wonderful discussion on #britishflowers hour on Twitter with a number of British flower farmers and florists about what colours are popular with you brides-to-be this year.  It was so interesting to hear what palettes and shades you are choosing, and that blush, peach and apricots are some of the most popular.  I would love to see someone planning a late summer/early autumn wedding have this beautiful purple, yellow and orange combination!

Wedding cake decorated with pink peonies and yellow billy balls

Has spring sprung today?!  It certainly feels like it here in Cheshire – how about with you? Anyway, with this decidedly warm and cheerful feeling outside (I even ate my breakfast on the patio!) I wanted to share a really jolly summery wedding cake today.

I chose this rough iced cake decorated with a dainty pink peony, those fab yellow billy balls (I believe that’s what they’re called?), and some delicate greenery.  I really like how they’ve used the leaves to wind down the cake and used a couple of peony petals for added interest.

natural wedding flowers with grasses

For a while now I’ve been squirreling away images specifically for this blog post, which if you are looking for something a bit different in your wedding bouquet or your wedding flowers in general might provide some inspiration.  Grass.  Yes, really, I haven’t gone mad – I think grass (not the stuff from your lawn) can look utterly beautiful in wedding flowers, and I set out to prove this by collecting some utterly gorgeous examples.

Whether dried and paired with deep coloured flowers and a bright pop of yellow…

I would never have thought that dried flowers could look so pretty at a wedding – but from the buttonholes, to the bridesmaids bouquet, and the wreath in the flowergirl’s hair, these dried yellow and white daisies are beautiful.  In particular I like the combination of the flowers with the pale coloured suit and dresses, and the oatmeal colour of the twine.

What a pretty wedding place setting, with all the feelings of spring – the blue and white vintage plate, embroidered floral napkin and that bright yellow spotty ribbon.

Today I have a lovely Cornish wedding to share photographed by the talented Sarah Falugo of Green Photographic.  This beautiful wedding was held at Rosteague, with the ceremony in the summer house followed by lawn games and champagne overlooking the sea.

At the heart of this wedding was a relaxed day full of fun, with no strict timetable and plenty of time to play cricket and croquet and take a walk to the beach.  Plus the bride wore a stunning pale buttercup yellow dress and had the most unique bouquet.  I shall say no more…
