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.
Inspiration for a wedding colour scheme of fern green and plum – Colour Crush #5 from Gabrielle Treanor
We’re back today with Gabrielle from eco-chic wedding stationery company The Green Gables to share another colour palette to inspire you for your wedding day – and it’s a joyful burst of much-anticipated spring colours! I particularly love this colour combination, especially as Gabrielle has taken her inspiration from one of my favourite flowers, the tiny viola (I did a whole feature on the similar violet if you’re looking for more inspiration).
Over to Gabrielle…
Today’s colour crush is as bold or as muted as you like. Go for regal purple and fern green to make an impact by using them as block colours for bridesmaids dresses or bouquets. Alternatively choose the paler tones as a muted accent colour for men’s ties or venue decorations.
A predominantly earthy colour palette of cream and green shades can be given a burst of brightness with a splash of purple. Could you imagine using one or all of these colours in your wedding?
This afternoon I have the second part of my feature on ferns in bridal bouquets and arrangements – if you missed part 1 yesterday do take a look at the bold and colourful fern and floral displays. Today I’m going to showcase the best of the soft and neutral arrangements that use ferns, starting with that beauty above – never did I think white and green could look so pretty together.
I hope that the ideas I’ve come across will help to inspire you if you’re looking for something a little different in the way of your bridal bouquet or your wedding flowers in general – you can find all of these images on my Pinterest flowers board so if you’re creating your own wedding flower inspiration board do get pinning!

Today’s cake post is less about the wedding cake and more about the topper – just check out that sweet pair of chickens! I also love that the hen appears to be looking longingly at the cockerel, and they’re mint green in colour. Where do you find such wonderful things?
As this post on mismatched vintage floral bridesmaid dresses is one of the most popular on the blog, I thought I would share more of my favourite shots of bride’s with their bridesmaids.
Tomorrow I’ve got more mismatched and colourful dresses in store, but first up a selection of delicate, soft and pretty dresses – like these lightly blushed bridesmaid dresses and a gorgeous blue-grey wedding dress…
Having recently spent a weekend staying at a woodland wedding venue in a tipi I felt this would be a fitting wedding cake. I love that it is just shades of green and white, with those delicate tendrils of ivy wound round in a natural style.
It is of course, helped by the woodland background of ferns and lichen-covered rocks. Perhaps you could recreate this feel with either a tree trunk cake stand, or surrounding the cake with green moss and potted ferns wrapped in hessian.
Wow. That’s what I thought when I spotted this wedding cake earlier this week. It is elegant whilst rustic, and so dainty looking with those tiny tiers of cake. I can’t help but fall in love with a simple white cake nestled amongst a bed of woodland moss and pretty white flowers.
I’m sure some of you creative brides out there could recreate a rustic cake stand like this, maybe with a little help from handy you husband-to-be. Get out into your local woodland or countryside to find yourself the perfect piece of wood to make into a tree stump stand.
Realised that what I love about this cake is the childhood memories it evokes of building fairy houses at the bottom of my Granny’s garden in Devon, with beautiful moss floors for them to dance on. They even left me a teeny tiny note once to say thank you. I love my mom.
