Nina & Tink’s rustic spring wedding at Lyde Court, Herefordshire
Posted on March 24th, 2017
The weather is a little undecided but there are sure signs that Spring has arrived with primroses and daffodils blooming and verdant green leaf buds appearing on the trees. Spring weddings are always full of joy and vitality and offer a chance for me to use some flowers from the garden, especially as late Spring turns to summer.
Nina & Tink’s at wedding at Lyde Court last May included a mix of seasonal flowers including aquilegia out the garden and stocks, larkspur, astrantia, tulips and roses in a mix of creams, soft pinks, lilacs and purples for a pretty spring colour scheme which is perfectly captured in romantic and natural images from their day by Camilla Rose Photography I also added lots of textural elements like dried lavender, thistles, grasses and wheat to give a rustic, country feel to the bouquets and buttonholes.
Nina’s bouquet was a rustic, natural style without being overly large or wild, but still packed full of pretty flowers, with fragrance coming from O’Hara roses, stocks and lavender. Her bridesmaids had smaller, posy versions with the addition of some gypsophila to tie in with their gypsophila flower crowns. The cute little flower girl had a rustic heart wand, bound in twine with a little sprig of dried flowers.
The chaps wore some of my favourite buttonholes to date, little bunches of dried flowers, grasses and wheat bound with twine and lego Star Wars characters wired in!! Each of the groomsmen had a different figurine and they looked awesome against their dapper tweed suits.
I decorated the ceremony barn with bunches of dried flowers and Nina and her army of helpers filled lots of beer bottles they’d collected with a mix of flowers I’d supplied for a simple but effective decoration along the trestle tables for the wedding breakfast.
Such a pretty spring wedding and the rustic style is a perfect match for Lyde court, looking forward to being back there soon! I’ll be posting more gorgeous spring weddings over the coming weeks so check back soon..
