We've been published again! Your East Midlands Wedding Magazine
Back in November 2019 The Rustic Wedding Company styled the gorgeous winter wedding of Victoria & Jamie over at Irnham Hall Wedding Venue in Grantham, Lincolnshire; and in the most recent edition of Your East Midlands wedding magazine the wedding has been published courtesy of Amanda Foreman Photography who captured the day on camera.
Anyone who has ever been to Irnham Hall will know that not only is it the most gorgeous Manor House but that it also has the most stunning grounds surrounding it with a vegetable patch with vintage greenhouses, a vintage walled garden and a cute little summer house & orangery building nestled within.
Inside the orangery, we created a huge floral & fairy light installation hanging from the ceiling to tower above the wedding breakfast tables and "seating for eating" which we set up the day before the wedding with a mixture of eucalyptus greenery, Italian ruscus stems & white trailing wisteria. We hung over 120 glass bauble tea light holders with remote control lights to make the process of turning them on super easy once the wedding was in full swing.
The colour scheme was super simple but so gorgeous and worked perfectly for the time of year. We went with golds, dark greens, whites & greys which really complemented the venue and outdoor space. With it being the 30th November,Victoria was really keen for it not to look christmassy and the only Christmas touch we allowed to creep in was the inclusion of one Christmas song at the end of the night as December 1st approached.
One thing that we really do focus on when styling our rustic weddings is creating a dramatic and spectacular top table which is literally fit for a king & queen... otherwise known as... the most important people at the wedding - the Bride & Groom and their closest family.
To style the head table, we laid a long drapery chiffon table runner along the length of the front of the table and then absolutely filled it with greenery, tall brass dinner candles, glass cylinder vases with pillar candles and gold tea lights.
We created a backdrop for behind the table with our large 7ft wooden archway, some grey fabric drapery, a greenery corner arrangement and some gorgeous vintage lights that were sourced by the bride's mother. - I'm sure this looked really amazing for the evening reception.
We added large bunches of greenery to the top table chairs to make them extra special and had hexagonal bride & groom laser cut signs hanging from the two in the middle.
I think you will agree that they look amazing and really stand out against the white walled venue.
At the time of her wedding, the bride owned her own coffee shop so the wedding favours on the gold place settings were little packets of ground coffee in Kraft paper bags which is really is just perfect for any coffee lover guests and a wonderful personal touch.
The place names were made using acrylic circles with green painted backs and gold calligraphy text and we added a little sprig of rosemary to each plate on top of folded white napkins to create that "straight from Pinterest" look.
For the guest tables we went with a mixture of high and low wild greenery centrepieces with pillar candles in tall glass cylinder vases and tea lights. We used gold charger plates for each guest and covered the tables with long white cloths and draping chiffon table runners in light grey.
The beautiful green, gold and white wedding cake was made by the mother of the bride and was absolutely huge. We placed it on a large vintage grey dresser at the venue on top of a drapery table runner with lots of greenery, fairy lights & different flavour cookies.
Next to the dresser we put the table plan which was created by the bride on a vintage wooden window frame and decorated with green foliage.
Around the rest of the venue we used up all of the spare greenery that we took with us for the ceiling installation. We always like to take more than we need so that we always have enough and can add extra touches around the venue if the opportunity arises.
We added greenery to the rustic wooden guestbook table, the sparkler display and the coffee tables in the entrance area.
Between us, we all took so many pictures of this particular wedding set up, from every different angle possible because it was really hard to capture the beauty of it all from just one perspective.
I always take around 200 to 300 pictures of our weddings from the beginning of the set up to the end so that we can send these over to our couples as a little bonus afterwards and that they can see what the venue looked like before the guests arrived.
The following images are from the wonderful Amanda Foreman Photography who captured the celebrations as they unfolded.
Thank you so much to Amanda for sharing these images with us and to Victoria & Jamie for choosing The Rustic Wedding company to style their wedding.
What a fabulous end to 2019 it was.
