Modern English Country Garden wedding inspiration from Yorkshire

Published by Claire Gould on

Let’s fill Monday morning with ideas for your summer weddings! Lovely wedding planner Melanie Jane sent us this glorious, tumblingly floral-filled and sweet inspiration. Take from it what you will: the style of the flowers or the colours of the stationery, the beautiful venue styling or the elegant bridal look and dress from Gatehouse Brides.

The Barn at Berkeley: Wedding suppliers

Mel is here to tell you how the look was put together, and how the team joined forces to create such a gorgeous wedding scene!

The concept of this shoot was English Country Garden with a modern twist, combining delicate pastel florals and natural features of a beautiful countryside barn.

A selected team of talented local suppliers joined forces to create these stunning images of countryside charm.

The Barn at Berkeley is a traditional Cotswold stone barn with an impressive space to allow us to create our vision. The beautiful courtyard was perfect for some outdoor photos when the sun finally came out for us!

The three main elements to the shoot were the romantic candlelit ceremony, the on-trend wedding cake and an impressive tablescape.

Our photographer, Alicia from Weddings by Alicia Victoria knew exactly what she needed to do to create the most beautiful collection of images. Alicia’s direction, imagination and talent delivered everything we had imagined and more.

Garland bases were provided by Cotswold Wedding Co and have been added to with an incredible array of seasonal blooms by our incredible florist, Foxy Buds, allowing couples to see just how well these two elements can work together when combined.

The beautiful cake which was provided by Vanilla Pod Bakery has been a real show-stopper for this shoot, with the gorgeous delicate detail of dried flowers surrounding it.

The tablescape looked very impressive with the stunning florals alongside beautiful glassware and gold cutlery provided by Vintage Gold China.

The stationery introduced a modern twist with its curved edging and soft colours to match our palette. Bella Peach Creative provided menu cards and place names that complimented the tables beautifully.

Our bride looked stunning in an elegant dress provided by Gatehouse Brides, which was complimented by the soft and natural makeup by Sophie Wylie.

Tracey Pallari showed us that even with shorter hair she can create an incredible soft curl updo which looked beautiful. Delicate, stylish and luxurious jewellery and hair accessories provided by Nicholls Jewellery then finished the look.

Our shoot included some fun extras to give couples ideas on other elements they can add to their day including a phone box by Platinum Music Events where Alicia enjoyed creating a fun twist to the images.
