wild_colourful_seasonal_bouquet

Hi everyone! A quick message here from Charlie – I’m really sorry that it’s been so quiet on the blog lately, but we’ve got loads of great guest posts coming up. There’s some gorgeous floral prettiness on the blog today, and coming up soon a beautiful Bedouin tent real wedding and a competition. Hope all your wedding plans are going well!

In order to find the loveliest inspiration and ideas for my readers I trawl the internet and blogs on the hunt for only the very best.  When it comes to flowers, sometimes I spot a bouquet and am convinced that it must have been created by one of our talented flower farmers or florists – and quite often I’m right.

This is one such bouquet that I spotted on this Fairytale Scottish Castle Wedding and thought it was just the kind of wild and natural style that many of our TNWC recommended florists dream up – indeed, it is from one of our Scottish contingent, the lovely Pyrus.

A sophisticated pale peach wedding cake with lilac jasmine tendrils

Not everyone who reads The Natural Wedding Company is after a rustic wedding, and there are plenty of ways to still have a natural and down-to-earth wedding in a chic and sophisticated way.

For today’s Cake Love feature I chose this incredibly elegant, pale peach coloured wedding that is beautifully adorned with fresh flowers.

The wedding cake itself is simple and understated, with smooth icing in a pale peach colour and dainty ribbons at the base of each tier.  In a complementary palette of white and shades of purple, there is this elegant waterfall effect of fresh blooms tumbling down the cake.

Chloe and Nick relaxed seaside wedding

Relaxed seaside Devon wedding

I am really delighted to be bringing you another exclusive real wedding to the blog today.  This wedding was shared with me via the lovely Chloe from BareBlooms, a TNWC flower farmer, as it was not only a wedding she did the flowers for, but she was also a guest as the bride (also called Chloe) and groom are friends of hers.

Bride and groom Chloe and Nick were really relaxed about their wedding day and wanted a simple celebration with just a few lovely details – it’s quite refreshing when it’s so easy to get bombarded by detail heavy weddings seen on so many wedding blogs.

Over to bride Chloe to share their pretty wedding day with you…

Natural and wild bouquet and flower crown from BareBlooms

Chloe and Nick got married last June in Devon, which they chose because it was the place where they met: “Nick was at Dartington College of Arts and I was working in Exeter, my mum, stepdad and gran live in Exeter and all our friends are mostly based in the south of England, so we felt that Devon was a natural choice.”

Wedding dress made from jasmine flowers

What could be more beautiful than a wedding dress made from jasmine flowers for a bride who grew up and got married in her home of Bali?  I have been totally sucked into the beauty of this wedding, of how it so effortlessly sits within its setting.

Natural Bali wedding

Having watched two TED talks by the bride and her father, it’s quite apparent that this whole family is committed to sustainability and the natural world, in a way most of us can only dream about.

Jasmine covered wedding cake

“Hang on”, I can hear you say, “where’s the wedding cake?”  I suppose I’d never thought that the wedding cake needn’t be the star of the show to the point where you almost can’t see it beneath the decoration.  But when the decoration is an overwhelming bundle of pink jasmine tendrils and strategically placed fruit, why not?

Secret garden style wedding cake with jasmine tendrils

If you are at all inspired by The Secret Garden for your wedding, this cake would be very fitting – a simple white cake hidden beneath an overgrowth of jasmine fronds and spilling fruit.  For a wedding cake where you can barely see the actual cake, it is pretty enticing.  It has certainly been decorated with abandon and a carefree attitude – I love it.

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.
