Nature Inspired Weddings

Countryside weddings are hugely popular, and why wouldn’t they be? Country style is timeless, idyllic and so versatile. With themes ranging anywhere from a cream tea and hessian summer fayre to winter tweed and pheasant feathers, a countryside wedding is just the escape from normality that couples crave for their special day.

I think it’s the peace and tranquility of nature that draws people in. There’s something about rolling fields and grazing farm animals that brings calm to a wedding day. When nerves are at an all-time high, there’s nothing more satisfying than a deep breath in the fresh country air.

Being set in the depths of the Berkshire countryside, Wasing Park is the ultimate country wedding destination; but by incorporating additional elements of the countryside, particularly through your floristry, you can really elevate this theme. Using a colour palette throughout your wedding that incorporates seasonal flowers, lots of which grow here on the estate, can tie in with a theme of elegance with lilies or blush rose, a more traditional bouquet of peonies and gypsophila or with a rustic theme that might make use of lots of foliage and succulents. Even feathers are becoming a more popular image in a rustic bouquet!

Here at Wasing, we love an autumn wedding. The colours of the leaves as the trees have begun to shed bring a warmth to a potentially otherwise brisk air and, of course not to forget, make for some beautiful photos with a dynamic colour scheme. The lack of predictability in the weather can give an autumn wedding a bad name, yet we find that with the Castle Barn lit up with tea lights adding to the burnt orange colours outside for a cosy ceremony and reception, this is quickly becoming our favourite season for a wedding!

So whether you are dreaming of a luxurious wedding or a subtle celebration, consider the variety that a nature-inspired theme can offer!
