Beautiful Botanical Autumn Open Weekend in Delightful Derbyshire
Bringing the outdoors in
With the rainy, cold Autumnal weather now here, our beautifully sunny Autumn Open Weekend just four weeks ago in delightful Derbyshire seems a lifetime ago. A superbly talented and trusted team of wedding professional friends came together to showcase a beautiful botanical and rustic themed Autumn Open Weekend.
A rural Saw Mill set amongst the lush green Derbyshire countryside, in a field lined with an abundance of logs was the location for our sixth annual Autumn Open Weekend. We wanted to go back to nature bringing the outdoors in, complimenting the natural, rustic elegance of the Tipis themselves. The look is clean and simplistic, but with natural rawness and texture.
The team created a fresh, simple theme with greens, neutrals and a soft gold colour palette, incorporating rustic and earthy elements from the outdoor surroundings. A tables cape abundant with lush green ferns, earthy, raw wood touches, simple single-stem florals in eclectic glass bottles, pine cones and crisp white linens gave a chic, botanical feel, but with a nod towards rustic, woodland accents too.
To add a touch of elegance and depth, subtle hews of copper and golds were woven into the setting through elegant glassware and cutlery, miniature woodland animal favours, vessels for the luscious fern plants, super-cool table top light up letters, top table brass candlesticks and subtly featuring throughout the stationery collection.
The stationery was beautifully illustrated with green and gold water colours to echo the woodland theme, whilst tapping into the simplicity of the key calligraphy trend.
The tables were named after classic tree’s, an idea that was in-keeping with the theme and wouldn’t date over time. The top table was filled lovingly beneath, with rustic and raw logs and a feature runner of moss, ferns and succulents to give emphasis and impact on entering the Tipis. Sat behind the top table, beautiful giant balloons sat proudly next to the feature rag curtain, that lined the dance floor and framed a set for the lyrical lovely, Rebecca Diamond to entertain the Brides and Grooms to be.
A beautiful vintage oak table filled with numerous show-stopping and delicious cakes, all echoing the rustic, earthy theme.
The Tipis were adorned with lashings of rustic rag bunting throughout, to give a raw edge and unique approach to the more traditional British, triangular flag bunting. A beautiful ‘feature’ wagon-wheel hung proud in one of the Tipi Peaks accented with lush floral, foliage and greenery.
Tasty treats were aplenty for all that visited from the dynamic and fun Jack Rabbits team
Outside of the Tipis two beautiful Bell tents were dressed and styled to perfection creating an inviting idea for guests to sleep under the stars. An eclectic, boho outdoor ceremony was set up to help envisage the ‘I do’s’ part of the day.
Overall, the team wanted to provide inspiration to Brides and Grooms to be as to how they could perfectly infuse their wedding day with natural elements and create a pretty, nature inspired atmosphere working with materials that are easy to find.
Enjoy the shots and lots of beautiful botanical inspiration from the super-duper Three Six Seven Nine Photography and Film.
