Tent, garden and the great outdoors

How to plan an Autumn outdoor wedding editorial

as seen on Boho Weddings Blog

Tucked away deep in the Warwickshire countryside lies Oakham Cottage; a vast landscape of undisturbed greenery, fresh air and gently rolling fields, making it the perfect location for our Provence-inspired ‘Wedding Festival’.

The motivation for the Outdoor Festival Wedding came from a place in our hearts that deems the traditional, corporate and sterile environments of wedding fairs stagnant and outmoded. This, paired with pure admiration for the elegant and the rustic, allowed a handful of unique wedding suppliers to capture the essence of the picturesque Cotswolds countryside and isolate it within the confinements of one of Boutique Marquee’s luxurious Sailcloth marquees.

Sophie from the Lilac and Wild team breathed life into the Sailcloth with their stunning floral arrangements, utilising the staple forest greens, delicate lilacs, pure whites, and fragrant lavender that conjure up images of the pretty and picturesque.

Bridal Gown

Francesca wore the Ashlyn dress provided by Kate Frances Bridal, an intricate masterpiece made up of delicate lace, pearls, and embroidery with transparent straps and a short train. Sophie achieved a modest, low-key make-up look compiled of warm tones which offset the countryside palette perfectly. Sophie also gave Francesca a blush pink lip which is one of, if not the only, warm tones featured within the Provence theme.

Our Bride, Francesca, and her Fiancé could not have been more suited to this event. Due to the nature of what we were trying to achieve, it was of the utmost importance to all of us involved in having a real couple for the outdoor ceremony and for the photos of them together.Groom lifting a bride outside
