An English Country Garden

Wasing Park is much more than a traditional barn wedding venue. Nevertheless, it is hard to deny that a soft, quaint and romantic English Country Garden themed wedding doesn’t sit perfectly within our rustic brick Castle Barn and breathtaking countryside surroundings.

The best part of using an English Country Garden as your inspiration, is that you can often turn your hand at some DIY or upcycling for your table plans, name places and other décor.

Get your mits on an old wooden pallet and use it as your basis for your table plan, your order of the day or as part of a display. Modernise it with greenery and copper highlights.

Wasing authorised supplier Laura from Lulabee is an expert in this, and is always creating beautifully designed and hand crafted new pieces.

Obviously your bouquets and floral centrepieces are going to come completely into their own here, and the best part is that this theme gives you almost endless options.

Rather than cut flowers, perhaps consider potted plants for your centrepieces? They can be just as beautifully abundant, and then you get to take them home and enjoy them for much longer! Alternatively, consider non-traditional vases filled with a mix of wild flowers and cut flowers full of pretty colours.

Floristry wiz, and authorised florist here at Wasing Park, Lindsey from White Horse Flower Company creates stunning seasonal bouquets like the above taking fully into account your favourite blooms.

Thinking of a neat bridal bouquet of roses, or have your heart set on a beautifully unruly array of wild flowers and succulents that look as though they’ve just been gathered from the garden? Either one will fit in wonderfully.

A unique idea is a bouquet made completely from dried flowers, herbs and wheat like these from Shropshire Petals, who happen to be our authorised supplier for natural confetti. Extremely distinctive, and you can keep to for much longer too!

For the green-fingered brides and grooms amongst you, perhaps you’ve got the quintessential English country garden at home? Maybe you could brave taking on the task of the bouquets yourself? Or perhaps turn your attentions to something a little smaller such as the buttonholes, like the lovely wedding below who enlisted the brides mum to take on the buttonholes! There is something lovely about growing and nurturing the flowers for your wedding, even if it is only something small.
