Quirky lemon wedding ideas – making our own sunshine

OK – I admit defeat. If we can’t have any actual sunshine (as I type it’s nowhere near as gorgeous outside as it should be in mid-June!) then let’s make our own. Out of lemons.

I may have lost the plot just a little there, and it reminds me of summer evenings as a teenager trying to ‘organically’ make my hair blonder by putting lemon juice on it. Every day. But indulge me for a few moments and you’ll see! Today’s feature of quirky lemon wedding ideas is bright and pretty – and what better way to rebel against our unreliable English weather than to use lemons as summery wedding decor? They really do look fab!

Wedding photographer Kelly Weech decided to run a ‘rock the dress’ competition for a bride to wear her dress again. Today’s beautiful model Natalie was the winner of the competition as she suffered with a migraine on her wedding day and honeymoon, has lost weight since getting married and wanted more from her photographs.

Kelly Weech Photography and 11 other Gloucestershire suppliers collaborated on this shoot in Ingleside House, Cirencester to put a fruity twist on a vintage inspired ‘rock the dress’ shoot.

A delicious twist creates a quirky lemon wedding theme

By Kelly Weech

To put a twist on the yellow trend this season we decide to opt for a lemon theme and incorporated this into the flowers and table decor. This option would be great for those looking for an alternative approach and looking to save money by making decor themselves.

Yellow and green go hand in hand and give a fresh and vibrant feel but still with a vintage appeal in the crockery, cutlery and glassware used. The shoot certainly achieved a sunny day look and we were very lucky with the weather.

We wanted the shoot to look not only look fresh but to feature plenty of details for inspiration. The various shades of yellow and green throughout tie everything together to give a beautiful vintage feel with elements of the romantic and lush. The florist used poppies in all stages – in bud, just opening and open, as well as steel grass, verbena and yellow iris to create a fresh looking bridal bouquet.

Ingleside House provided the perfect venue for the photo shoot. After a yearlong refurbishment programme of love, Ingleside House has been converted from a former school to a stunning events, weddings and conference centre which has maintained all its original features and charm. This Grade II listed stately home, beautiful in its simplicity, was the perfect blank canvas.

Styling the bride to maintain a quirky feel was very important. The bride wore her own dress and then the dresses seen in the shoot were specifically chosen designed to match the ambience and décor.

Equally, the table decor was a great opportunity for a number of suppliers to work together and really showcase our citrus-meets-vintage yellow and green theme. Using a variety of different coloured glassware, mismatched vintage crockery, glass domes for the wide variety of wild flowers, we really achieved a play with depth and height down the centre of the table. With so much gorgeousness on the table it really made for a multi dimensional, Alice in Wonderland tablescape which showcased the theme perfectly.
