Vibrant country wedding styling ideas from The Plough at Lupton, with Arusha’s Images Photography

I’ve been excited about today’s wedding style feature for SO long… you see I was in at the beginning, chatting about colours and style ideas for the calligraphy element of the day even before it happened. I knew a little of what was planned… but oh my, how beautiful it all turned out to be.

Lovely Arusha’s Images Photography organised the shoot with a dream team of suppliers: the Charlie Brear bridal separates are out of this world; the styling of the venue inside and out is gorgeous; and those lovely light-up letters by Typical Type are always guaranteed to brighten my day!

I’ll share the shoot in two parts: there were two distinct looks on the day and I wanted to show you all the ideas for a vibrant country wedding style first. Later this week we’ll see how a country wedding venue can play perfect host to a more vintage-inspired affair!

The timeless, vibrant country bridal style was achieved with gorgeous wedding attire from Mears Ghyll Bridal Rooms: Charlie Brear’s flowing dresses are simply divine, and work well with Mears Ghyll’s fabulous shoes and hair accessories too. Illana wears Charlie Brear’s ‘Torum’ dress with ‘Augustine’ Lace Top and ‘Augustine’ Overskirt, Charlie Brear’s ‘Ellery’ cami dress with tie straps and Alan Hannah’s ‘Nancy’ wedding gown in different sections of today’s shoot.

We had a free flowing, natural hanging bouquet with deep and bright colours as well as table arrangements from Flowers by Arrangement in Kendal. The individual flowers steal the show – and the bouquet is right up my street, wonderfully textured and full of exciting colours to brighten any English wedding day!

The Plough at Lupton’s dining area is so warmed with all those beautiful colours and lights – it’s a welcoming venue with countryside charm which you and your guests will love. The styling – by Arusha along with the Plough’s own stylist – is out of this world and yet not an impossible challenge for any couples on a budget.

Last but not least for today’s part of this gorgeous shoot, the handwritten calligraphy place settings, invites and wedding ceremony readings are by me! See more of my calligraphy work at Calligraphy-for-Weddings.com or buy / learn how to write like this in my Etsy shop.

The star cast: (the classic coach, glorious cake & more details will be in part 2!)
