An ‘I’ll Love You Till the End’ Wedding at Bridwell

This post An ‘I’ll Love You Till the End’ Wedding at Bridwell first appeared on The Wedding Community Blog

This wedding is fabulous and has so many incredible personal touches. Hannah and Michael took inspiration from woodlands and eerie, romantic settings to create such a beautifully styled wedding.

Every element of this wedding had so much thought put into it; the aisle of weeping willows for Hannah to walk down, the hired Chesterfield sofas for guests to sit on, the unique, handmade entwined heart as the backdrop, and the visually stunning tablescape in the dining room.

If you think that’s all amazing then wait until you see Hannah’s handmade headpiece. It’s one of the most incredible headpieces we have ever seen.

Our thanks go to Martin Dabek for sharing the incredible pictures from Hannah and Mike’s fabulous Bridwell wedding.

Enchanting Love

“Being a wedding stylist I was able to create all our decor and details for our ‘I’ll love you till the end’ wedding. I designed and handmade our stationery, props, flowers and accessories, and created our table decor. Our wedding theme was enchanting love and the styling inspiration came from woodlands and eerie, romantic settings.

“My beautiful soft coloured winter bouquet was made from silk, fresh and vintage flowers. My headpiece featured off-cuts of fabric, tulle and vintage silk flowers. Some were distressed and coloured further with acrylic paint.”

Still Nature Styled Wedding Shoot

This post Still Nature Styled Wedding Shoot first appeared on The Wedding Community Blog

We love the calmness that this styled shoot portrays. The natural elements of the beautiful woodland set the scene for this wonderful ‘Still Nature’ wedding inspiration.

With the simply yet chic styling One Stylish Day has shown that having an outdoor wedding can be calm, relaxing and ‘with nature’, and doesn’t have to include lots of props and styling details. Louise used natural elements that complemented that surroundings, minimal embellishments for the tablescape and an abundance of candles to give a warming, cosy feel in the forest.

Nicola Dixon Photography captured the beauty of this Still Nature wedding inspiration styled shoot and we are delighted to share the incredible pictures.

Natural Elements and Textures

“This shoot is a fresh take on an outdoor wedding, inspired by simple Scandi living. There’s a sense of oneness with the wild, and a calm, comfortable appreciation of nature.

“The woodland setting is undisturbed by a tablescape that feels like it belongs, and natural elements and textures add a quiet vitality to the scene. An undone quality runs through this scheme; dripping candles, casually laid linens and twiggy floral arrangements.”

Dramatic, Natural Backdrop

“Collections of logs and tree stumps work to create an outdoor ‘room’, and pillar candles of differing sizes provide the ambience. Garlands creep around trees as if they are growing there, and the repetition of vertical tree trunks into the distance creates a dramatic, natural backdrop.

“White stationery has hewn edges and perfectly placed black serif typography.”

“Spring has yet to reach the forest, and the colour palette reflects this stillness. White and warm grey reflects a sunless sky, and soft, dull metallic finishes reflect the surroundings. Soft pinks and deep reds lift the dark forest green, woody browns and bronzes.”

Table Styling

“Clean lines and minimal embellishments are key to this tablescape, with white being predominant. Bronze candlesticks and black rod-handled cutlery ground the white tablecloths, off-white glazed ceramics with a light texture and natural white candles.

“The detail comes from the loose, unstructured flower arrangements, which have a ‘swept from the forest floor’ feeling. The dried elements of twigs, seed heads and bracken combined with evergreen foliage give the arrangements a sense of longevity. Nude roses, blousy anemones and rich toned ranunculus and hellebores add a flighty sensuality.”

Stillness and Simplicity

“The purity of a single tier white cake reflects the stillness and simplicity of the outdoors. The dried flower detail appears to have floated down and softly landed on top.”

A Quintessentially English Scaplen’s Court Wedding

This post A Quintessentially English Scaplen’s Court Wedding first appeared on The Wedding Community Blog

A wedding that has a Ferrero Rocher table plan certainly gets our approval! A wedding with fish and chips straight from the chippy… massive bonus points!

Caroline and David married at Poole Guildhall and then walked with their guests down to Scaplen’s Court for their wedding reception. Scaplen’s Court is a Grade One listed medieval house built in the 1500s and 1600s as a courtyard inn. What an amazing place for a wedding.

We love the fun details of this wedding. The fish and chip dinner, the amazing doughnut stack cake, the Ferrero Rocher table plan and also the cute little fingerprint hearts on the thank you notes attached to the heart shaped tea infuser favours.

A big thank you to Az from Lemontree Photography for sharing such beautiful pictures.

“Caroline and David live in Canada but travelled back to the UK to have a Dorset wedding. Caroline’s close family and friends in Canada also attended this Scaplen’s Court wedding. This was also the first time that both sets of parents had met.” – Az, Lemontree Photography

Quintessentially English

“We can only describe our wedding as the perfect day full of all our favourite things. We enjoyed delicious food and drinks and a party with our closest family and friends (with many coming all the way from Canada). It was quintessentially English with afternoon tea, fish and chips and ice cream, along with colourful bunting in a building full of history.

“We blissfully danced the night away, with our first dance being to Harvest Moon by Neil Young. After all, we had to incorporate some Canadian elements.”
