Today we’re sharing more of the amazing pictures from Dawn and Matthew’s festival style wedding, our February Wedding of the Month. Their farm wedding was relaxed and fun with lots of personal details, including a VW Campervan (what festival would be complete without one?) which they chose as their wedding transport because they used to own one before they emigrated to Australia. Their guests enjoyed a garden party the day before the wedding and camped in the field ready for the big day, and in true farm style they had a cool barn dance during their evening reception.
If you are planning a festival or farm wedding we hope you get loads of inspiration from these pictures taken by Tyron Craig Mackenzie Photography.
“Our wedding theme was based on a festival as we are both passionate about music, have been to many festivals and had our first kiss at a festival! We picked Woodland Valley Farm as our venue as it was really flexible and beautiful, and it had the option for camping and accommodation on site which was a great plus.
“The farm was very relaxed and allowed us to create the look we wanted, which was so important to us. We utilised the fact it was a farm to our advantage, using old milk urns and watering cans in the decor and hay bales as seating. We chose pastel colours which again allowed flexibility and we felt instead of having only two or three colours a mishmash of complementing shades would look amazing. We had flowers everywhere in little jam jars and also candles and fairy lights, and everything was handmade by ourselves or family and friends; everything had a meaning and a story. We had strings of photographs of ourselves with our family and friends on the barn walls to remind everyone of how important they are to us, especially as we have emigrated to Australia.”
Today’s wedding shoot is perfect bridal inspiration for a wintery day. This shoot was styled to create and elegant, sophisticated, romantic winter wedding look; different to a traditional winter wedding style. We love the silver dress and fur shrug that adds a touch of winter elegance, and the milk chocolate wrapped cake makes our mouths water!
We hope you enjoy the pictures of this beautiful winter inspired wedding shoot.
“Jenny handpicked suppliers she thought could create the winter wedding wonderland look she had envisaged for this shoot, each with their own unique style that collectively would tie in with each other beautifully.
“The wedding transport was provided by Amelia’s Classic Cars. Sophie is a gorgeous classic car, a 1959 Armstrong Siddeley Star Sapphire, one of only 100 which remain on the road today worldwide. This seemed like the perfect car to make a grand entrance in for a winter wedding celebration and tied in perfectly with the look and feel of the bride and groom’s attire.
“Jules from the Art of Flowers created some really beautiful floral arrangements that took into consideration every aspect of the shoot, just as you would if you were planning your wedding.
“When it came to decorating the castle she kept the displays simple, using plenty of cascading eucalyptus foliage. Filled jam jars lined the aisle and kept the whole area feeling natural and unstructured.
