The beauty of Beth and Matt’s wedding is captured in the photos you’re about to see on today’s blog post. They married in Exeter, with a reception in Exeter Castle… a venue I’ve never featured on English Wedding Blog before (why?!) and one with a rich and intriguing history.

Today’s wedding is beautiful, with lovely details and ideas for your own day. Beth and Matt describe their wedding style as ‘relaxed, simple and rustic’ – I’d say it’s perfect.

I loved the images of children playing which first caught my eye on wedding photographer Lucy Turnbull‘s blog – there are some wonderful moments here and I hope you’ll indulge me for sharing so many photos of the younger guests – I just thought they had a magical quality.

Enough of me – time to hand over to Beth and Matt to share their story, with photos by the lovely Lucy Turnbull Photography. Enjoy!

I think a lovely summer wedding is just what we need! (I’ve been up for hours and my blogging fingers are freeezing this morning.) So I’m sharing Sarah and Nathan’s rustic, countryside wedding which is full of lovely ideas for your own big day.

We’re talking delicious blue cornflowers and big white daisy bouquets. There are dinky little jam jars with ribbon and flowers. I love the wedding signs, the rustic wedding post box, heart decorations and ice cream selection: Mmm… breakfast! (it’s OK, I live by the seaside. We’re allowed to do that here.)

Sarah and Nathan’s wedding day has two sides. The details are sweet and easy to recreate for your own wedding – with lots of impact and a really fresh, vibrant countryside wedding feel. But the moments between the bride and groom are magical as well: the little glances and big smiles are what a wedding day is all about. Gorgeous. Enjoy!

Nicky and Natalie’s wedding has everything a wedding blogger could wish for and more: romantic hugs, gorgeous design (Vivienne Westwood anyone?), and fabulous details which combine rustic with modern elements. The wedding venue and decor, by the way, is sublime! Dream Occasions‘ Bernadette Chapman worked her magic there, and helped with the wedding story for this blog post as well!

There are beautiful pictures – courtesy of the lovely wedding photographer Mark Bothwell – and plenty of ideas for other couples to include in rustic but elegant weddings. But most of all, this is one of those weddings which has that fantastic sense of freedom: a humanist ceremony, some glorious moments with friends and family, and a couple who wear their hearts on their sleeves. Nicky and Natalie are beautiful and inspiring. I hope you love today’s wedding blog as much as I do.

rustic wedding ideas (24)Jody and Richard’s wed­ding was held at The Sta­bles at Cross Butts in Whitby, a family-run wed­ding venue with the option of hav­ing a civil cer­e­mony out­doors. They cre­ated a lovely theme with rus­tic details, and their wedding day was full of gorgeous ideas with a relaxed, natural atmosphere.

Yesterday I featured the bridal preparations and outdoor wedding ceremony on English Wedding Blog, and today I’d like to share all the details of the day with you. Jody and Richard worked so hard to create a beautiful day, and I know any couples out there planning a similar day will be inspired by their wedding decor.

How would you describe your wedding style?

We wanted our wedding to fit in with the venue which is described as “Where Country meets Town”, and we wanted a rustic and natural feel.

I love Jody and Richard’s wedding for the atmosphere they created. Their wedding was held at The Stables at Cross Butts in Whitby, a family-run wedding venue with the option of having a civil ceremony outdoors. They created a lovely theme with rustic detailing… it’s a gorgeous celebration I know you’ll enjoy.

Richard and Jody chose award-winning Derbyshire wedding photographers HBA Photography to capture their day. Photographers Ben and Hannah Appleby described Cross Butts as “a great wedding venue with one of the best marquees we’ve ever seen and it was so well decorated – an immense amount of effort from Jody & Rich and really worth it!

I’ll hand over to Jody and Richard to tell the story of their day, and leave you to enjoy the images by HBA Photography which go so well with the theme and style of this beautiful wedding.
