Last year we were asked to take part in a photo shoot for the stunningly beautiful Belvoir Castle. Obviously it was a very quick answer… YES of course, not only did we just have to work at the beautiful castle but we also had the amazing Rachael Connerton Photography to capture it all and some of the best suppliers around.
The magnificent Belvoir Castle are now offering their stunning lakeside marquee for wedding guests, giving you the unique opportunity to create your very own day, your way. Surrounded by a landscape of trees and open countryside, with a dramatic view of the Castle on the skyline.
Festivals are a great theme and style when you fancy a relaxed fun idea for your wedding style and so after some planning it started to come together. The idea was simple, bright, festival inspired fun. Here is the end result.
My ideas for styling were very simple, bright colours, large flower heads such as sunflowers, gerbera’s, dahlia’s and stocks along side some lovely seasonal wild editions. Ribbon detailing to work along with the festival inspired wedding look and coloured glass with simple table detailing.
Billy ball flowers (the mustard yellow balls) are my absolute favourite!
Make a statement on your place settings by using extra decoration for your napkins, not only will it make them stand out, it will level out the table decoration rather than it all being in the centre of the table. We love the festival ticket inspired place names that Nikki from Tickled Pink designed for us.
Extra table decorations of the fruity kind!
Our wonderful bride and groom enjoyed a fabulous game of croquet and included some really fun details for the shoot. I love the button hole we created for our groom, super festival stylish, well that’s what I think. Including Dolly the ice cream van as well as dancing bridesmaids!
A little game of croquet for the happy couple!
Lovely apple cider makes for a great festival inspired drink, makes for a perfect styled wedding drink.
