A flower farm wedding is always going to be a winner, but this beautiful inspiration shoot from Cristina Ilao Photography combines sweet country style with modern minimalism and some of the most incredible floral installations I’ve ever seen! Holme Flower Farm in York, offered an idyllic venue for this eco-friendly and elegant rustic wedding shoot, with UK wedding dress designer Cherry Williams London and amazing floral artwork by Firenza Flowers!
The gorgeous colors of the invitation suite and this stunning flatly added a fall touch to the nude and white stationery by Bureau Design!
Vintage was the goal for the bride’s Cherry Williams London wedding dress – the off the shoulder ruffles added a playful touch to the minimalist gown with a sleek fitted skirt. Hair and makeup artist Victoria Farr kept that old world style in mind when styling the bride’s 30’s inspired updo – a gold headband by Agnes Hart added the perfect vintage accent!
The incredible flowers and dramatic floral installations were perfectly fitting for a flower farm wedding! Firenza Flowers started small with the bride’s bouquet of dahlias, roses, rudbeckias and hydrangeas. The hand dyed silk ribbons that accented the bouquet beautifully complemented the natural textures and added subtle, neutral color.
The flower installation over the reception table was anything but subtle! Firenza Flowers crafted an airy chandelier out of artemisia and honesty branches – a wire frame kept the entire creation totally foam free, so it was eco-friendly as well as stunning!
With such a show-stopping design element creating a floating installation, L27 Weddings kept the tablescape decor minimal yet impactful. Hand carved wooden bowls and bud vases added texture to the neutral tablecloths and earthenware plates. Gold accents and taper candles in earth tones added a hint of color to the all natural decor.
This rustic vintage cake table is one of my absolutely favorites! Poppy Pickering Cakes emulated the ruffled sleeves of the bride’s wedding dress on the classic three tiered cake. The sugar ruffles added a sweet crown to the clean white layers, with sprigs of honesty to add just the right floral element.
