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 holly berry red and icy white – Colour Crush #3 from Gabrielle Treanor
It’s all about a Christmas inspired colour scheme on the blog today with this Colour Crush palette from Gabrielle at The Green Gables – lashings of festive holly berry red and icy white tones.
Sometimes one colour is all you need. Red is a gorgeous colour to use in a Christmas wedding, not just because of its festive glow. Red is a bright, bold, cheerful, vibrant colour and in several cultures symbolises good luck and happiness.
You can choose the red to suit you, from bright orangey reds to deep purpley reds. Make red the prominent theme with solid blocks of colour in the flowers, bridesmaid dresses and stationery. Or for extra Christmas sparkle use red as an accent colour with lots of white and touches of silver and gold.
What’s your perfect palette for a Christmas wedding?
Not quite wanting to give in to the colourful wedding cakes that remind us of summer, but at the same time wanting to bring a little spring cheer, I’ve chosen this romantic white wedding cake for today’s Cake Love feature.
With it’s pretty selection of white and cream blooms and dotted with sprigs of green mint, it had just the right amount of the hopefulness of warmer days, whilst being quite subtle and soft in its appearance. I am a huge fan of herbs being used for weddings, both incorporated into bouquets, buttonholes and table arrangements, and as well as decorating cakes, drinks and other edibles.
What a mouthful – a big, blousy, romantic, pink peony wedding cake. But it is all of those things, and incredibly pretty. I waver between loving cakes that are rustic, quirky and romantic – it’s a good job my wedding’s behind me and I don’t have to pick another wedding cake, I wouldn’t know where to start!
I have really loved seeing in the past year so many wedding cakes decorated with fresh flowers. This cake could have been a bit too girlie with the ruffly pink peonies, but the addition of some vibrant green foliage makes is more country garden than princess cake.
If you’re looking for a wedding cake made with love and excellent ingredients (local, fairtrade, organic, seasonal) then check out our wonderful selection of cake makers. You can also find edible flowers – both crystallised and fresh – perfect for decorating your wedding cake.
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!

Red and white inspiration for a Christmas wedding or celebration using cranberries, candles and fircones
The countdown to Christmas has begun, it is less than a week away so I wanted to share some more Christmas wedding ideas, although I think they could be equally lovely for your home.
I love this easy idea of filling cut-off brown paper bags with fresh cranberries, and then popping a white candle in each. Without a table number they would be great on your Christmas table.
