Vibrant ribbon streamers for a summer festival wedding with Simon Withyman Photography (13)

So this GORGEOUS pair have all the summer feels! I adore the vibrant ribbons and fun, relaxed and beautiful styling of their Old Oak Farm wedding day. Sophie’s Watters gown and Loz’s TM Lewin suit are perfect for the occasion: their British grown, seasonal flowers are just divine for such a colourful, festival-style September wedding!

The venue is a completely natural beauty however as we wanted to make it colourful we added colourful ribbons and flowers. Our wedding flowers were created (and grown) by the amazing Kate from Windmill Farm Flowers. Kate works with the venue regularly and so was recommended to us and I honestly couldn’t fault her. We went for colourful and bright seasonal flowers, the flowers looked so amazingly beautiful and really made the venue come to life, they were also really reasonably priced for what we got. When our bouquets and buttonholes arrived I was blown away: they were everything I had dreamed of and more.
