Garden party wedding inspiration and ideas

Zen Photographic wedding blog (5)This morning I’m humming “Bring me Sunshine…” – and I also have some gorgeous wedding ideas to share with you. Zenna from Zen Photographic told me about a little ideas session she’d photographed with Cheshire wedding suppliers at Nunsmere Hall, and I loved the images from the day. I am sure they’ll inspire some of you to create bright, beautiful and fun wedding tables just like these!

There are oodles* of ideas here – from wearing flowers in your hair, to creating alternative floral displays for your tables, and styling everything from the wedding cake to the bridesmaids flower garlands to fit a beautiful garden party wedding theme. I hope you love it!

(*I know – but my job description has “Editor” in it, and part of that means I can make words up whenever I like.)

Garden party wedding ideas for you!

Not sure which is yummiest-looking… wedding cake or groom? 😉

        FAB, FAB, FAB! Thanks for a rapid reply.
        I’m loving this shoot, it has all the qualities of a wedding that I am looking for. It’s me all over. I have been on a few shoots in my time and this is one that I would have loved to have worked on. I am now scrolling through the many links via your website to see if there is anything that takes my fancy. Great Blog.
        Love it!
