A woodland wedding will always hold a special place in my heart, I chose to have a woodland wedding myself and I just don’t think you can beat the woods for a more magical setting. We’re at Cheshire Woodland Weddings with these gorgeous multicolour wedding ideas today, coordinated by Bouquet & Bells and captured beautifully by Jessica O’Shaughessy Wedding Photography.
From the stylish attire to the smoke bombs and vibrant blooms, it’s just all SO cool. I love the pocket garden buttonhole, the circle wedding sign and the dreamy barn reception to name just a few. Enjoy it all folks!
A bright and bold themed shoot at hidden gem Cheshire Woodland Weddings in Northwich.
Bouquet & Bells handpicked a close-net selection of quality, local wedding suppliers. The focal points of the shoot were the intimate outdoor ceremony area set right in the heart of the romantic woodland and the rustic barn, all part of Cheshire Woodland Weddings. Photographer Jessica O’Shaughessy captured all elements of the shoot perfectly. Her style of photography fell hand-in-hand for a colourful theme and the images beautifully reflected all elements of the day.
Hannah from Hannah Williamson Flowers created a killer flower crown for model Jo, paired with a beautiful bouquet. Model Kieran fashioned a quirky pocket garden; a really unique concept that we just adore! Coloured smoke bombs added even more ‘WOW’ and really stood out against the woodland backdrop. Dainty jam jars with colourful stems continued the theme of bright and bold down the woodland aisle. A bespoke ‘welcome to our wedding’ sign created by Knock Knock Penny Studios featured next to the alter and colourful heart-shaped confetti was hand thrown and shot out of cannons supplied by Your Confetti.
Sam (Samantha Gannon Hair) created two different looks, each very natural and effortless including accessories by Cassie M Bridal Accessories. Kavita (Magic Mirror Bridal Makeup) kept Jo’s makeup very soft and gentle with bronze eyeshadow and a neutral pink lip. The look was darkened and made more evening appropriate for shots in the barn.
Hanni from My Funny Valentine supplied two beautiful bridal gowns. The first was Saffron by Evie Young, an a-line gown with beautiful leaf pattern detail. The second was Lansbury by Pronovias, a strapless mermaid gown with beautiful beading and glitz detail. My personal personal favourite detail were the angel wings. They attached around Jo’s upper arms and effortlessly blew in the wind which just looked so beautiful in the images, and a fantastic alternative to a traditional veil.
Kieran wore two different styles of suits, each provided by Groom. The first was a navy blue three-piece with red tie, really making the colourful pocket garden stand out. The second suit was a tweed style with navy blue patterned tie, this time paired with a more traditional buttonhole.
The styling really came to life in the magical rustic barn. A stunning tablescape featured beautiful blooms, placed in a statement gold vase and various glass jars. Coloured tall candles added an element of height to the table along with an element of romance. Vintage crockery supplied by Sweetpea & Ivy was an elegant and quirky alternative that looked gorgeous against the wooden panelling of the barn and dark wash wooden farmhouse table. Individual luxe white menus with rose gold wax seal detail created by Knock Knock Penny Studio finished the look.
The cake was a real showstopper. Julie from The Red Rose Cake Company together with Hannah worked together to create an elegant but vibrate design. A stunning white three-tier with cascading bright florals sat on a wooden barrel.
A mouth-watering grazing table was provided by Cheeky Chilli Events. A cold meat platter, delicate macarons and a selection of local cheeses were just some of the delicious treats that featured. Trust me when I say the macarons were absolutely delightful!
