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.
Bree and Mitch’s rustic backyard wedding on the coast of Australia with a blush pink wedding dress by Grace Loves Lace
Today’s beautiful rustic backyard wedding comes to us all the way from sunny Australia and is a lovely example of how to have a laid back and affordable wedding. Bree and Mitch were high school sweethearts and planned a wedding around their memories of warm evenings sat together in Bree’s parents back garden.
From Bree’s unconventional blush pink Grace Loves Lace wedding dress to rustic handmade details and makeshift bar, this wedding is both beautiful and full of love, but without a huge financial cost. They even had some weather issues, but not – if you’re planning a summer wedding in England – in the way that you’d imagine!
Over to Bree to tell us more about their wedding…
Country house spring wedding
Wimbledon has a special place in my heart as it was the place where I was born and spent the first few years of my life, so when this beautiful country house spring shoot landed in my inbox I was especially excited to share it with you.
This recently renovated south London country house wedding venue is set within the stunning Morden Hall Park, which is run by the National Trust. The park contains a variety of natural landscapes, including parkland, a river, meadow and marshland – an idyllic backdrop for this spring wedding shoot.
Photographer Eva Tarnok told me that they wanted to reflect the elegance of this historic venue, but also to showcase the natural beauty surrounding it – I think they did a great job.
This is one of those wedding cakes that I quite fancy bookmarking and recreating as a birthday cake one day in the future. I really love the combination of the barely-there pale pink icing, and the white blossoms and foliage trailing down the tiers – it’s perfectly finished off with those soft red raspberries.
This wedding cake completely won me over with its pretty charm and understated garden daisy decoration. I think the daisies take me back to my childhood and making daisy chains and playing out in the garden. Whilst the cake itself is beautiful made and iced, the fresh flower details are simple and down-to-earth, perfect for a garden wedding.
I would always advise having some kind of plan for how you want to decorate any elements of your wedding, including your cake, just so you’ve thought about it in advance. It looks like you could just order your simply iced wedding cake and then throw caution to the wind and decorate it with whatever you found in the garden the day of your wedding, but for most of us it’s good to have a bit of an idea what you might like to use.
That way you can foresee any pitfalls – will the flowers wilt quickly and end up looking a mess? This is especially important I think when using cut flowers, they all have different ‘lasting’ times one picked, so it’s always wise to ask your florist or flower farmer. Plus, you’ll want to ensure they’ve not been sprayed with any nasties as you’re popping them on something edible.
This wedding cake is everything the title says. It is pink, and very frilly. Therefore that makes it outrageous in my books. It is also topped off with a very cute Sylvanian families bride and groom rabbit couple.
If you’re a regular blog reader you might know that I have a soft spot for childhood memories / books / toys and for me, one of those toys that I utterly adored were Sylvanian families. I only wish that I had thought to top one of our wedding cakes (we had a cake table) with Sylvanian families bride and groom rabbits!
Aren’t they cute!
A quick hello for the start of the week (and a very bright post to get you all feeling cheery!) and just to give you a head’s up of what’s coming up. I’ve got an exciting announcement to share with you on Wednesday that I alluded to on Facebook last week and over the weekend, plus two fab guest posts from TNWC Real Brides Caroline and Stephanie.
Wowzers! I was pretty blown away by this beautiful bouquet for a Texas Thanksgiving Wedding – I just couldn’t stop taking it all in. It is just a riot of oranges and pinks (who knew they could look so stunning together?!) and with those additions of interesting foliage and grasses it’s just pretty magical.
It has a very natural and effortless appeal to it as well, which I think it sometimes so hard to find in a wedding bouquet. I know a number of excellent florists who are experts at pulling together such kinds of wild bouquets, so if it’s the look you’re after for your wedding flowers do check out our fantastic Flowers category on the blog.
