Happy Saturday everyone! What are your plans? I’m really excited – I’m on a sten do this weekend, it’s going to be brilliant… and we’re outside all day so the sunshine is an absolute bonus!! But can you believe it’s going to be July tomorrow?! Me neither… let’s see June out in style, shall we? Today’s inspirational feature comes from lovely Steph Yeo Photography, based in Yorkshire. The styling is rustic and romantic – a beautiful mix to inspire the growing number of couples celebrating their weddings in converted barn wedding venues and still looking for elegance and a dash of fairytale… it’s beautiful and I hope you love it as much as I do!
With the popularity of barn venues rising for the modern day bride and groom, The Barns in East Yorkshire is a perfect wedding venue. Close to the river bank the venue is spread over two barns, with an outdoor firepit and lots of fairy lights.
The theme for the shoot was ‘rustic fairy princess’, bringing the rustic feel from the barns and wooden decorations and mixing the with blush, peach and gold glamour. As barns are an amazing blank canvas it is easy for a couple to be sucked into the temptation that they need to fill every inch with decoration. The idea for this shoot was to have a few eye catching, statement areas throughout the venue whilst making the most of the rustic natural feel of an amazing venue.
We concentrated on the little details like the ever popular gin bar, oversized words, logs, candles, flower boards, fairy lights and a treat table. Treat tables are going to grow in popularity because of the flexibility it gives a couple to provide their guests with sweet treats. On top of a traditional wedding cake, we had naked cakes, cake pops, donuts and macaroons… something for everyone! The love heart alternative bouquet was also a big hit, with it being available in smaller sizes, perfect for flower girls.
This beautiful shoot absolutely shows that you don’t have to spend a huge amount of your budget on decorations, but that you can make a memorably wonderful impression by concentrating on individual, personal pieces.
