This beautiful wedding inspiration shoot at the Willow Marsh Farm takes a step away from the normal foliage trend and really celebrates florals with a colour pop. Katie from Unique Your Wedding was inspired by the pantone colour of the year and drawn to pinks, oranges and yellows which are this years colour trends. Katie wanted to create heavy floral designs in all elements of this wedding inspiration: in stationary, the cake and the headpieces.
While searching for inspiration she’s been drawn to Spanish influences and bohemian chic – modern, moody wedding photographs, full of atmosphere and movement. I’ve always been a fan of boho-inspired weddings and when it comes to boho-inspired wedding dresses – I knew I wanted to shoot with Rue De Seine. These wedding dresses are unconventionally beautiful – especially the gorgeous flared sleeves on Sia, and the contrast in the colours with East being nude. Boho chic dream.
To create this Spanish influenced look we looked for a venue where we could recreate that boho, moody look ( which suit my style if you look into my gallery) . A perfect match was just round the corner – a new wedding venue just outside Nottingham, in Loughborough.
The Willow Marsh farm is definitely one of the most beautiful new wedding venues in the East Midlands. It has it all: the barn, beautiful landscape, small lake, horses and great hosts. The wedding barn has been built using big stones and wood and the barn entrance has the perfect Spanish feel we were after.
If you are on the lookout for a barn wedding venue in the East Midlands – The Willow Marsh Barn might be just what you are looking for. We styled the venue with a mixture of old and new items creating a mis-matched and relaxed vibe which is so fitting to the nature of the building and the wild surroundings in the grounds around it.
The hair styles were designed around the flower crowns: one being oversized and the second one being made from pampas grass. The make up followed to match the style using pantone of one of the flowers to match bold lipstick colour.
The cake design focused around florals, all intricately made from sugar in a bold pink. The wedding stationary followed the Spanish design, introducing tile-like design with lots of beautiful, colourful florals.
