French inspired Sperry Tent inspiration in the Cotswolds

Published by Claire Gould on

For those of you planning an outdoor wedding, we present the most beautiful Sperry Tent as the modern alternative to a classic marquee. The light and airy florals give this wedding styled photoshoot a summery vibe, and our gorgeous models Shriya and her partner bring it all to life. Huge thanks to lovely Martina from Wonderful Events who sent this in, and to the entire team for creating something SO beautiful.

“The idea was to present the mighty Sperry tent by Boutique Marquees at its best in a French inspired, timeless, outdoor wedding. Oldberrow House, a beautifully renovated Victorian home bordering Warwickshire and the Cotswolds, provided a lovely backdrop to our marquee. This family run wedding venue is available to couples across the UK and allows them to create a wedding of their dreams.

Timeless French elegance concept with a modern twist suitable for the English countryside comes through in the light blue rich linen, textured lace plates, and romantic summer florals. Together with soft bespoke calligraphy, light blue single candles, and rattan lamp shades creating a perfect relaxed luxury. Blues in this concept truly represent a French luxury and romance. Where wooden rustic bar structure, behind the dance floor octagon, and rattan lounge furniture indicate the countryside.

Pastel colours, fresh flowers in combination with dried and preserved flowers floating above the top table in the cloud created a summer dream.

The cloud was made up of apricot gyp, apricot Limonium, apricot statice, white gyp, dried broom and dyed preserved peach trailing Amaranthus.

Centrepieces were made up of light blue delphinium, apricot Lisianthus, white agapanthus, baby blue eucalyptus, peach carnations, white aconitum, pink peonies, Astrantia, blue sweet peas, Dorchester roses, Jana spray roses, apricot statice and Limonium.

Our lovely bride was wearing Francois by Hera Couture. Timeless, luxury, and sexy a line skirt with a split. Made with heavy silk drill satin the dress moves effortlessly, and with sculptured dropped shoulder corset the cleavage is just perfect. Hera Couture makes dresses with real women in mind, and we just know that every bride will feel million dollars in this one!

Our handsome groom was wearing pastel blue three-piece skinny suit with a modern apricot tie.
