Today we bring you a real life wedding and it’s a very special one.

The bride is actually something of a celebrity in certain circles. She owns and runs a match-making company called “Mutual Attraction” and we’re delighted that she found her perfect bridegroom.

This wedding is full of joy.

The event was styled by one of our creative and talented stylists who is based in Berkshire and we think you’ll agree that she kept the mood of the centuries-old building perfectly in mind when designing the décor.

Let’s look at little further at this wedding day and discuss what we can see.

barn wedding

The wedding ceremony took place in an high ceilinged barn

Beautiful Cotswold stone walls and decorative beams gave this barn a wonderful atmosphere. The bride and groom took their vows in here and asked our stylist to decorate it in a style that would suit the space. So our stylist used an all-white palette, with white chairs and vintage white lace sashes on the chair backs. A white aisle runner gave a focal point to the room and was further decorated by lanterns containing white candles. Up above on the beams a string of fairy lights gave an extra glow.

The beamed ceiling was so stunning it didn’t really need any more decoration – just a twinkle

An all-white palette is a good choice when you have an older venue. White doesn’t date, it always looks stylish and it works whether you are getting married in the height of summer or the depths of winter. To give white added depth, our stylists work hard at mixing textures together, sourcing particularly interesting accessories and co-ordinating the look with the bride’s wedding dress and the bridesmaids’ frocks. For example, if the bride has a lace wedding dress, she may well want to use lace as a theme on her chair sashes, on the table decorations and with her wedding stationery.

Kate Middleton married in a lace wedding dress and she certainly put lace firmly back on the wedding map!


Shy but proud flower girls arriving

As you can see, lace was a big part of this wedding theme which our stylist interpreted to perfection we think. The flower girls here have pretty empire line frocks, with scalloped lace hems and a lace overskirt. A little bit of sparkle adds some detail and focus to the outfit and we like the touch of cosy shrugs to keep the chill out. Simple little country-style flowers finish the look, with diamante headbands for the two girls. So pretty and so in keeping with the lace draped around the chairs, don’t you think?

This image captures the cosiness of the venue. It’s intimate and personal. When you look at venues, our stylists are always happy to come along with ideas for decorations so you can show off the room to its best. The beamed ceiling here and old stone walls made a strong statement of their own, so the stylist wisely decided to decorate in a simple, uncluttered style with a vintage mood to suit the age of the building.

Check out the trail!

It’s always a wonderful moment when the bride and groom are announced to be man and wife. We love the way the bride’s dress is draped around the chairs here the long train perfectly complements the lace on the chairs. This is one pretty, vintage and classic wedding day. Simple but effective. We’re sure that the stylist and bride had some wonderful discussions when they were planning their look together and they obviously communicated brilliantly!
