Ideas for your rustic countryside wedding day

I think a lovely summer wedding is just what we need! (I’ve been up for hours and my blogging fingers are freeezing this morning.) So I’m sharing Sarah and Nathan’s rustic, countryside wedding which is full of lovely ideas for your own big day.

We’re talking delicious blue cornflowers and big white daisy bouquets. There are dinky little jam jars with ribbon and flowers. I love the wedding signs, the rustic wedding post box, heart decorations and ice cream selection: Mmm… breakfast! (it’s OK, I live by the seaside. We’re allowed to do that here.)

Sarah and Nathan’s wedding day has two sides. The details are sweet and easy to recreate for your own wedding – with lots of impact and a really fresh, vibrant countryside wedding feel. But the moments between the bride and groom are magical as well: the little glances and big smiles are what a wedding day is all about. Gorgeous. Enjoy!

The wedding reception:

What were your highlights? Speeches, ice creams, garden games, the photo booth and everyone on the dance floor in the evening

Venue styling and details:  Country style, jam jars, ribbons, cornflowers, daisies, hearts and a sweetshop

Music and entertainment: string duet, Olympic quiz and top trumps during dinner and a fantastic DJ in the evening

What did you wear? Sarah wore an ivory dress and veil from Angelica Bridal in Islington. Nathan and the groomsmen hired morning suits from Moss Bros

Memorable moments:  Every part of the day makes us smile. The most memorable moments were the fantastic speeches and the very emotional reading from Nathan’s Mum which left everyone in tears!

Wedding day advice:

  • Plan everything in advance so that during the days before and the Wedding Day itself you can concentrate on relaxing and enjoying yourself.
  • Make sure you ask your suppliers as many questions as you need to. They are used to it and it will make you feel more confident on your wedding morning that everything will go to plan!

Recommended wedding suppliers:

We were so lucky to have such wonderful local providers helping us on the day.
