Steph & Steve – Doxford Barns

Steph & Steve had to wait so long for their wedding day (thanks to Covid) that they had a baby in between. Little Hudson stole the show on the day and was just the cutest pageboy you've ever seen.

Marrying at the beautiful Doxford Barns, Steph wanted to keep the wedding styling sympathetic to the rustic style of the venue so we used lots of natural textures of wood and also used milk churns to create statement arrangements to dress the ceremony.




Ceremony Styling

In the Threshing Hall (the ceremony space) I placed large milk churn statement arrangements at the start of the aisle to welcome the guests into the space. I also dressed the fireplace with a big floral arrangement and the venue always fill the hearth with lots of candles giving the ceremony a really romantic feel.

There was a long and low floral arrangement on the signing table and the aisle chairs were dressed with burgundy chiffon chair drapes.

Steph provided loads of glass jars that we filled with candles to finish off the look.

The ceremony styling was rustic and romantic, creating a really cosy intimate atmosphere.

Reception Venue Decor

In the main barn, we kept the wedding venue decorations light and elegant with ivory chiffon chair drapes. The wedding flower centrepieces were made in whitewashed brick moulds and finished off with the bride and grooms own number signs.

The long and low floral arrangement from the signing table in the ceremony moved to the top table.

Wedding Flowers

The wedding flowers were all designed to complement the bride's bouquet which was a full, luxurious gathered bouquet packed with dark red, blush pink and ivory roses, white lisianthus, blue thistles, blue delphiniums and mixed eucalyptus.

The bridesmaids bouquets were a slightly smaller version of the bridal bouquet and the grooms buttonhole was made to complement too.

Wedding Cake

The cake deserves a special mention as it was a truly magnificent 4 tier, pure white creation by Chemily's Cakes. She decorated it with flowers I supplied in a 360 design so that the cake was beautiful from every angle.

The table plan was pretty cute too using my rustic palette frame dressed with pots of gypsophila with the name cards pegged on.

Steph & Steve (& Hudson) had such a wonderful day full of love and joy, it was such a pleasure to work with them to design and style their wedding decor and all of their wedding flowers.
