Today’s woodland wedding shoot is wonderful!!! I LOVE the ribbon tipi and the bouquet – and the dreamy background and styling touches are just incredible! The venue is Oakwood Weddings, a brand new wedding venue nestled within ancient woodland near Ashford. All images are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Helen England Photography, who is based in Kent.
The theme was enchanted woodland wonderland with a touch of bohemian glamour designed by Claire from Blue Daisies Florist who supplied all the beautiful flowers, and Becky from Your Beautiful Day.
I just love this wedding to bits. It’s SO pretty – all the flowers, the exquisitely crafted wedding cake, and Stef’s adorable dress (and the way she LOVES wearing it!) – they’re the loveliest couple and I have been so excited to share their wedding with you on the English Wedding Blog!
The flowers from Blue Daisies Florist were the main decoration. We had collected loads of vases which were all different styles and shapes – the florist then displayed these everywhere in the room so wherever you were all you could see was our spring blooms!! I was so pleased with our flowers – they were beautiful and the room just smelt amazing…. everywhere you looked there were flowers. The colours were perfect.
Today’s wedding has character, individuality and good old English country charm. I love Kelly and Gary’s choice of The Bull Hotel for their intimate Kent wedding – it’s a great little place and just looks so welcoming and off the beaten [wedding] track! Kelly is gorgeous – and despite Gary at one point not wanting a photographer, I’m thrilled they booked lovely Michelle Cordner Photography to capture their day.
“Our wedding inspiration came from us and how we are as a couple. We are relaxed (sometimes too much!), fun loving and love a quirky building and the countryside. We wanted a Kentish feel to our wedding that was slightly different and not what everyone else does.
Rachel & Gavin’s ceremony was under a gorgeous floral arch before celebrating the rest of their evening in a romantic barn lit by fairy lights. I adore all the handmade touches and I recommend you grab a cuppa before scrolling through the stunning images of their day – there are sooo many ideas here, you’ll love them!!
Rachel is absolutely beautiful – all the florals are stunning and the little touches and handmade ideas are just fabulous!! Personally I love the ‘engagement tour of Ireland’ idea – I’m definitely up for that! Please hit the Pinterest button and save these to your boards – you’ll be busy creating for sure!
I had the absolute pleasure in February of meeting Kent wedding photographer Benjamin Toms (and his impeccably behaved black labrador Byron!) – and we talked and talked. Ben’s approach to wedding photography is inspiring. I only wish you could have been there to listen to him talk about the work he loves – and to learn, along with me, some wedding photography secrets! I wanted to reintroduce you to Ben today. He’s been a supporter of the English Wedding Blog for a long time and I adore his work – his photography is simply out of this world, and his dedication is second to none.
