Real Wedding Mood board: Country garden party.

This is my second addition to the Wedding Style Mood boards series which I started in January. Each mood board is created from images I took at the wonderful weddings I’ve photographed and each wedding style is different. I’ve created this series as a source of inspiration for future brides so feel free to pin these boards to your Pinterest wedding planning board!


Today’s wedding inspiration mood board comes from Lucy & Mark who tied the knot last May in Oxfordshire (see their full wedding here). Their country garden party wedding day was nothing short of perfect. Lucy said that the styling for their wedding was very much dictated by her goal to have a simple, elegant & timeless wedding day and all the pretty touches they had definitely made the most of the beautiful garden where they had their reception. She used neutral colours throughout and wore a gorgeous dress by Alan Hannah, which she said channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw and Audrey Hepburn… amazing right?!


The main decoration to their day, was gorgeous flowers and they really added a touch of Spring to the marquees and tables, without being overpowering. In shades of light pink, cream and white the day was styled beautifully and reaffirmed my belief that when it comes to wedding styling, less is definitely more. Their naked wedding cake was the perfect fit for their relaxed garden wedding day and I loved the fresh berries and white roses, which decorated the cake. The marquees was beautifully decorated and the “chill out” lounge area next to the dance floor was a wonderful idea. Lucy & Mark’s lovely Spring wedding was featured on Love My Dress – see the full feature here.
