Relaxed rustic wedding ideas in many teacups

I remember a year or so ago on the blog one of the brides whose vintage wedding featured on the blog told me about a cupboard under the stairs which was full to bursting with a secret stash of cups and saucers she’d been collecting. Today’s blog post has as many ideas for a relaxed rustic wedding as that bride had teacups in her cupboard. Fact.

This is part two in a trilogy of inspirational wedding shoots from my lovely friend and spon­sor Alix from Lumiere Pho­tog­ra­phy, and Val from Benes­samy Events. Together with some talented wedding suppliers they’ve cre­ated three styled shoots to inspire you with ideas for our most pop­u­lar wed­ding themes. Last time it was coun­try ele­gance, and today we have relaxed rustic wed­ding style ideas. Val can tell you more. Enjoy! Claire x

“The inspiration for this theme was the natural rustic charm of afternoon tea on an English country farm. Everything from the bleached pine sweat heart table informally dressed with burlap runners, gorgeous mismatched china and informal linen to the ‘vintage meets rustic’ inspired polka dots & pinstripes stationery. Beautiful rustic bouquets of hydrangeas, roses and gypsophila.”

“Afternoon tea would not be complete of course without delicious scones and cakes for all to enjoy! The hay store ‘theatre’ provided a small “off centre” stage for the couple to relax and enjoy a little time to themselves before a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade from the outdoor drinks station.”
