Nestled in the Victorian countryside, Annabelle’s family farm proved the ideal backdrop for their wedding festivities. The ceremony took place overlooking an expanse of rustic farmland where the familiar rolling brown fields created a serene ambience in the late afternoon sun. Oversized floral arrangements adorned the space featuring loose and wild blooms with cascading fine fern atop giant cut logs serving as plinths. Farm vehicles were decorated with gathered wildflowers and trailing ribbons perfectly reflecting the couple’s vision for their special day.
Annabelle looked radiant as she walked down the aisle of cut grass in an elegant strapless gown with a thigh-high split. Her hair was pulled back into a ponytail finished with a large white bow, and her blue shoes echoed the hues found in her bridal bouquet. The bouquet itself was a mixture of pastel garden roses, lisianthus, and daisies, with pops of blue delphinium. Whilst the bridesmaids each carried a gathered bouquet featuring a floral variety found in the bride’s bouquet styled en masse.
The intimate wedding reception unfolded in front of the farmhouse where guests gathered on a single long table to dine. Overhead lighting cast a warm glow, creating a magical ambiance as the sun set. The tables were adorned with naturally styled arrangements, featuring a mix of pastel flowers that exuded a country charm. Roses, daisies, veronica, and lisianthus intermingled with delicate accents of agapanthus, amaranthus, and Queen Anne’s lace with the subtle incorporation of summer fruits on the table. The bride and groom’s seats were specially marked with large white bows, and candles were placed along the path guiding guests to the farmhouse.
Thank you, Annabelle and Max, for having us part of your beautiful wedding celebration. We are grateful to have played a part in your unforgettable day which perfectly combined understated elegance with the rustic charm of the countryside so special to both your families.
