Woodland Romance | Sacha and Ross’ Festival Inspired Wild Bluebell Wedding in the Cotswolds

Woodland Romance | Sacha and Ross’ Festival Inspired Wild Bluebell Wedding in the Cotswolds

Hello babes, and welcome to another festival-inspired week here on the blog! If you were brave enough to hit the high street this weekend then I salute you….I made a measly attempt at Christmas shopping in town, which ended just shy of an hour later with a Pret Flat White and non-existent shopping bags. Looks like Amazon is going to be my very best friend this Christmas! On to today’s real wedding which took place at Wildwood Bluebell, one of our very own exclusive venues. Wildwood is set in the glorious and secluded heart of the Cotswolds, surrounded by wild flower meadows, enchanting woodland and acres of private farmland. This heavenly setting is right at the top of the best and exquisitely unique and free spirited festival venues in the UK, and we are so proud to be able to offer it exclusively through Festival Brides!

Rocky Mountain Romance | Kaley and Kyle’s Free Spirited Riverside Wedding in Colorado

Well well well my luscious lovelies, have we got a treat for you this morning! This real wedding is absolutely outstanding and can only be described as a dreamy dose of free-spirited wedding heaven. We’re talking barefoot, bohemian draped bride, flower crowns, open-sided marquee, breath taking cliff top views and the most picturesque outdoor ceremony setting. We are so in love with Kaley and Kyle’s wild and free, pretty boho festival-inspired wedding. The pair married at the stunning River Bend, which is right on the border of the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. This is the wild outdoors at it’s finest and couldn’t have been more of a perfect wedding spot for this adventure-loving duo. With the river running right through the venue, macramé dreamcatchers swaying delicately from the trees and a marquee filled with chic floral arrangements, pastel blue candles, elegantly rustic table settings and decor, the couple married in the heart of the great outdoors, surrounded by their most cherished friends and family.

Rustic Chic | Fiona and Tim’s Summer Festival Barn Wedding in Somerset

Good morning everyone, and welcome to another beaut of a real wedding here on the blog! Forget the windy wet day that’s most likely tapping at your windows, as this wedding will take you right back to glorious sunshine, summer park strolls and village fetes. Fiona and Tim were married in my home county of Somerset at Almonry Barn in Langport. Such a beautiful part of England surrounded by woodland and rolling countryside fields. The couple always dreamt of an old stone barn wedding and this place stole their hearts at first sight. They weaved classic festival-inspired elements into their day by handing out flip flops to all the ladies and bright retro sunglasses to everyone. With a short but very sweet ceremony, the couple then partied the summer night away with a vintage-style prosecco van, garden games and shots of Jaeger!

Wedding Inspiration

A Rustic, Romantic and Decadent Wedding Inspiration Shoot….

On this chilly winters afternoon we have the most beautiful wedding shoot to share with you. Captured in a 19th Century barn in rural Germany, this shoot was put together by Madita Bley Photography who drew inspiration from the original features of the barn to create a wedding shoot that is both rustic, romantic and decadent. 

We love the gold, brown, green and black colour palette that runs so beautifully through each element, especially in the cakes which look amazing. We also love the oh so pretty Ulrike Schneider wedding dress with its beautiful back detail. Madita talks us through her ideas for the shoot and all the wonderful suppliers involved…

Nestled between the Cilgerran gorge and the river Teifi, the space at Fforest brings you back; back to nature, back to simple pleasures and the beauty of the outdoors.
