Boho Folk Festival Woodland Wedding

Pitt Hall Barn Wedding Emily & Steve Photography

What a way to begin the week, with a total and utter bang you guys! We are joined by WWW readers Rebecca and Jack with their Pitt Hall Barn wedding in Hampshire on the 14th September 2019.

Their day was a master-class in DIY wedding décor and details. Much of their day was home-made; Rebecca’s beautiful blue tulle skirt, the signs, the bunting, the artificial flower arrangements and the jam favours to name just a few. The result was a marvellously personal and boho style celebration.

They were married outdoors in the woodland at Spilman’s Copse, there were pretty pops of blue throughout their day, flower crowns all round and gents in tweed suits. Wow. All the folk festival vibes.

Thanks ever so much to Emily & Steve Photography for sharing with us these sublime images today. Such a treat!

The Details & Décor

Mostly nature and folk inspired.

All décor was done ourselves from mostly things we already had… our house and garden was empty on the day! We spent 2 years looking through second hand shops and facebook marketplace to save money. Most flower arrangements were artificial except for the flower crowns and bouquet.

The bunting was made from free second-hand bedding by the bride, bridesmaids, groom’s mother and bride’s mother.

The indoor feature trellis was made by the groom and his dad.

All signage (pallets, mirrors, cards) made by bride.

We wanted to create a space in the garden that showcased items from our travels and had a hippie vibe. The tea crates were another facebook marketplace find and were perfect tables.

Jam favours made with fruit from our allotment.

Our ceilidh band was chosen after we went to the Whitchurch new years ceilidh and asked them if they would play. We had seen some of the members before when they were in folk band Bellowhead.

Advice For Other Couples

Keep checking back in with yourself that you are doing what you actually want and not what you think you should want.

Don’t be afraid to wear cowboy boots.
