A Relaxed Festival Wedding on an Alpaca Farm

The thing I love most about Kelsey and Matt’s wedding is the simplicity of the day. No bridal party, no suits, no seating plan, no cake or fancy accessories; just the two of them and their loved ones in one spectacular location.

Kelsey and Matt tied the knot at Jalbrook Estate in Australia, a charming alpaca farm, and it was the perfect setting for their laid-back festival wedding. They said their vows under a beautiful tree with a macramé ceremony backdrop.

Kelsey wore a stunning boho bridal two-piece, Tillie top and the Natasha skirt by Karen Willis Holmes, and Matt kept things casual in trousers, shirt and pumps. Their outfits really reflect the relaxed, festival style of their wedding. They wanted their wedding to feel more like a party than a wedding, and it sure has that vibe.

The couple and their guests enjoyed drinks served from a really cool caravan bar, and ate delicious traditional paella.

These pictures taken by CJ Williams Photography really show how relaxed the day was. Enjoy!

Unromantic but Perfect

“Matt proposed on February 11th on Great Barrier Island off New Zealand. Matt bought us tickets for the trip as a Christmas present and it was just magic. We had a cosy little chalet on top of a hill overlooking the ocean.

“One day Matt suggested that we go for a bush walk, but he pretended to forget his lighter so he could run back up and set up the ring/proposal. When we got back we were both sweaty and hot, and when I saw the box on the table Matt said “Shall we get married?”. It was so unromantic yet so perfect.”

Still Nature Styled Wedding Shoot

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.”

A Colourful, Mexican Themed Wedding at Tohono Chul Park

This Mexican themed wedding in the Arizona desert is totally amazing and unique! Incredibly, Reagan and Ryan planned their fabulous wedding at Tohono Chul Park in just six months. We haven’t featured a wedding in the desert before, but it’s such a spectacular, natural backdrop and really sets the scene for this Mexican inspired wedding.

We love all the colourful handmade details and pretty little Mexican touches that add to the beautiful styling of the day – and wait until you see their wedding cake…

A big thank you to Plain Jane Photography for sending us this incredible wedding.

Natural Beauty and Charm

“We wanted to get married in the desert. Like, IN the desert. We were originally planning a backyard wedding at my mom’s where the ceremony would be in the gorgeous natural desert near their house. However, the logistics of throwing a party that large at their home started to get overwhelming. Then I remembered visiting Tohono Chul as a child, and I’d read so many testimonials on how beautiful the park is now. The natural beauty and charm was exactly what we were looking for.”

Grooms Bas and Lars laughing at their wedding

A Stunning Outdoor Wedding at De Deugdzonde, Belgium

We are delighted to be sharing the pictures of Bas and Lars’ spectacular wedding at De Deugdzonde in Belgium, captured by the very talented David Walters Photography. Bas and Lars had a wonderful outdoor wedding ceremony (then a thunderstorm hit!), with a fabulous reception under a sperry tent.

Grooms Bas and Lars laughing at their wedding

The couple, along with their wedding planner, created the prettiest wedding styling, with an abundance of bright coloured flowers, ribbons and personalised details. We love the personalised wedding favours – bags filled with little treats, including a hangover kit!

Every picture of Bas and Lars shows the love they have for each other. David Walters did any amazing job capturing the special moments and emotion of the day.

“Bas(tiaan) and I (Lars) met in the dog park in Brussels. He is Belgian and I am German, and we both had spent some years abroad before we both moved – independently – to Brussels (Bas grew up in Gent).

“It was love at first sight for the both of us, as well as our dogs. I brought two vizslas into the family and Bas his Spanish greyhound. A whirlwind romance turned serious very quickly, and we soon moved into a terraced house in the Brussels suburbs. We have never looked back.”

An Amazing Day in the Flemish Countryside

“Our wedding last summer was an amazing day, seeing all our friends from the different places we had lived. Even a giant thunderstorm that blew over most of the dinner tables did not deter us.

“Our wedding took place at De Deugdzonde, a converted farm that now serves as a B&B in the middle of the Flemish countryside.

“We made our own favours. Our friends who are graphic designers put a quick B&L logo together, which we printed onto bags, which were filled with handmade soap, a hangover kit, and personalised M&Ms.

A Beautiful BoHo Cornwall Elopement

Bride and groom on rocks by sea after BoHo Cornwall elopement

If you don’t fancy a big white wedding with hundreds of guests, and are looking for something small and incredibly intimate, then maybe think about an elopement. We don’t mean rushing of to Gretna Green! How about Cornwall?

This is exactly what Lizzy and Alan did for their wedding. They had an stunning, intimate BoHo Cornwall elopement, with picturesque surroundings. They had no one else to worry about but themselves on their special day. After the ceremony Lizzy, Alan and their son sat on the cliff-side overlooking the sea and enjoyed a decadent picnic in the sunshine. Just perfect!

These amazing pictures by Thomas Frost Photography show just how lovely an elopement can be…

A Special Day Together

“Our BoHo Cornwall elopement was an outdoor ceremony with only witnesses. As it was such an intimate day we didn’t have to worry about things such as a theme or styling. It was really just a bouquet, buttonhole and flowers in my hair.

“My dress was the complete opposite to what I ever imagined, but I would never change it. It was comfortable, classic, but with a boho feel. It was also easy to move in which I knew would be important with a 10 month old to look after and photos on the beach.

“I stuck to tradition by having something old, something new and something borrowed. My friends have passed down the same garter, with each friend adding something to it when they marry.

“It was wonderful to feel at ease, knowing it was the first day of the rest of our lives together. It was also amazing to spend such a special day together, not worrying about anyone but ourselves. The whole day was perfect, and we have so many fabulous pictures to help us remember it. We will never get bored of them.”
