One of the hottest trends at the moment is undoubtedly Rustic Glam – think laid-back elegance, natural materials and a dash of real luxury.

At Ambience, we’ve got our finger on the pulse of all the latest wedding trends and popular themes and we carefully choose suppliers who can help us pull off these stunning looks to perfection.

Our stylists at Ambience Devon recently put together this wonderful photo shoot, uniting some of our amazing suppliers and helping to demonstrate how we can pull off this gorgeous wedding theme. This photo shoot is in partnership with the wonderful team over at the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, which helps to arrange and fund dream weddings for those with terminal illnesses. We were thrilled to team up with them to show what can be achieved when it comes to ideal weddings. Read on for some top tips to recreate the look for yourself, as well as meeting some of our fabulous approved suppliers.

The Venue

Let’s start with the venue, one of the most important aspects of any wedding. Both the planning of the wedding and the beautiful venue were provided by Clovelly Weddings. Our images were snapped in The Red Lion Hotel, but you can choose from a selection of other venue offerings, from their picturesque summerhouse to the cosy oak-beamed New Inn.

The Red Lion Hotel fitted our vision of Rustic Glam perfectly. The abundance of natural materials combined with the stunning views over the bay offered a wonderful canvas for our suppliers to work their magic.

The Bride

Our bride’s look was created by a number of talented local suppliers, providing the dresses, shoes, jewellery, hair and make-up. As you can see, this look is all about dreamy elegance. Think soft curls with ornate hair accessories to finish off the look, with natural make-up and intricately detailed gowns. One of our brides even wore wellies to set off her gorgeous dress – the epitome of Rustic Glam!

We love this juxtaposition of natural materials with a dash of luxury. Gorgeous!

Natural materials

We just love this image of sparkling earrings resting on a piece of driftwood – we think this is what Rustic Glam is all about. Natural materials have a huge role to play in this look, therefore you should incorporate them wherever you can. The cake suppliers cleverly added some rustic feathers to the cake and the venue itself was packed with gorgeous wooden features.

Rose gold and copper are having a serious ‘moment’ right now in the world of weddings, fashion and interiors. Adding these gorgeous metallics truly puts the ‘glam’ into this theme. We just adore the sparkling glassware and the sumptuous decorations on each table, from the gold candlesticks to the glittering tablecloths.

Such a show-stopping table setting!

Dreamy pink

With so much high drama on the tables, and the juxtaposition of glamour and nature, it’s important to choose a colour scheme that isn’t too imposing. We think the dreamy pink highlights you can see in the bouquets and throughout the venue pulls the look together perfectly.

The soft blush pink complements the luxurious copper and rose gold perfectly.

Thanks to all of the suppliers and the fabulous models from Devon Casting Agency for helping to create this dreamy look. Will you be opting for Rustic Glam at your wedding this year?
