Natural organic wedding inspiration with a romantic spring bouquet, touches of copper and vintage wedding dresses
This spring photoshoot is full of natural organic wedding inspiration with hints of peach, pale blue and copper. The team were inspired by vintage reclamation and the organic and natural colours and textures of oxidised copper. From the exquisite handpainted botanical cakes to the vintage wedding dresses (the rose pink one!) and touches of foraged blossom, this photoshoot is brimming with inspiration.
Over to photographer Jenny Owens to tell us more…
Natural organic wedding inspiration
Today’s modern botanical vegan wedding inspiration shoot aims to illustrate that ‘having a vegan wedding does not mean a bride wearing a bag for a dress.’ According to the Vegan Society veganism has grown 350% in the last ten years. It is then great to see that industries such as the wedding industry are starting to embrace the trend which goes hand in hand with eco-friendly values.
As we very well know choosing eco-friendly doesn’t mean you need to compromise on style. The same can now be said for a vegan wedding. Hellbunt Events the team behind the concept and styling have created such a beautiful shoot with an incredible dessert table featuring edible succulents, a gorgeous bridal couple wearing fair-trade clothing and rings, and classy flower arrangements in shades of blush.
English bluebell wood wedding inspiration from Fern and Field for a modern outdoor spring celebration
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…
I thought it would be nice to follow up from Rhiannon and Richard’s wild and natural Welsh wedding (it’s so beautiful – you must have a look if you haven’t seen it already) with more details of the wild looking bouquet Rhiannon carried. The bouquet in question was created by the wonderful Chloe of BareBlooms who is featured in The Natural Wedding Company directory.
I got in touch with Chloe to find out exactly what flowers she used to create Rhiannon’s bouquet, and to find out what look she had been asked to create. Chloe told me, “Rhiannon was so relaxed about her bouquet – she wanted something loose and wild and not too fussy.”
Today it’s all about my wedding accessories – from my vintage inspired shoes to the heirloom lace veil, natural make-up to a gorgeous garters. It’s all here including the details of how I came to choose them for our wedding.
I spent ages looking for the ‘right’ shoes. So many wedding shoes are elegant but modern, and my dress was so delicate and had a country feel to it, that I wanted something with an old-fashioned feel. I also didn’t want really high heels as most of our wedding was spent walking on grass.
In the end I came across the gorgeous designs by Diane Hassall and fell in love with a pair called ‘Liliana’ – I managed to track them down to a bridal shop in nearby Knutsford and despite being loads more than I’d ever imagined spending, they came home with me. They came with a choice of floaty organza or velvet ties – I went for the velvet ones.
I particuarly love this picture above of my shoes on the windowsill in my parent’s bedroom, with all those personal bits you find in people’s houses in the background.
I hadn’t planned on wearing any veil…and I ended up having two! My mum spent ages trying to track down the family veil, which she had worn when she married my dad, and my granny before her, and so on back through the generations.
I love this photo of my little sister Izzy holding my parents wedding album open at a photo of my mum wearing the veil, with it hanging behind Izzy from the cupboard…
A Alicia Handmade is one of those websites I could spend hours looking around at all the pretty handmade goodness. So when I spotted this new addition to her collection I couldn’t resist sharing it.
Sky Blue Vintage Swallow Bridal Fascinator
Handmade in London from vintage materials, including a gorgeous swallow brooch, ruffles of vintage ribbon and clouds of blue net.
This adorable fascinator would look great on a bride, bridesmaid, or even a mother-of-the-bride – in fact, anyone! Sometimes items just come along that you fall in love with, and this is one of them.
All that combined with a price tag of £42 I don’t think this will be around long – so if, like me, you’ve fallen in love with it – go snap it up now!
Some of you might remember this brides beautiful flower adorned hair, well here’s a bridesmaid with jolly blue cornflowers (one of my favourites) fastened in her hair.
I really wanted to use fresh flowers in my hair on my wedding day, I’m just having trouble deciding how I want my hair and how flowers could fit in.
I am used to wearing my hair down most of the time, so I don’t want a fancy ‘up do’ – but if I leave it completely loose there’s not many ways or places to fix flowers in. Thoughts welcome!
