Ideas We Love

If thoughts of being immersed in nature during your wedding day fill your heart with joy then a nature inspired rustic theme could be right up your alley. From inspired locations, to fairy lights aplenty, we’ve compiled the ultimate guide to achieve your rustic themed fantasy.

Actual Day Wedding

As this is a natured inspired rustic theme choose a location that embraces the elements over a traditional barn venue. Think outdoor locations that envelope you in nature; a Thai beach wedding surrounded by caves like the Grotto at Rayavadee, or a lush forest wedding encased by trees that will put an enchanting twist on your big day.

Make the most of your outdoor location and utilise organic elements for your backdrop, headpieces and props. Use what is available; branches and foliage, for an earthy and natural aesthetic, or stand out by attaching soft florals of contrasting colours and signage, to enhance the space and make your solemnisation pop.

Dinner Setting

If you decide to enjoy your wedding meal inside, be sure to bring the outside in with florals, greenery and other organic materials that play off your outdoor ceremony space. Wood details; slices of log for place settings, naturally crafted chairs and delicate twigs and branches can be used as decoration to help to elevate your rustic design, pair with florals to add elegance and refinement to your table setting.

The reception space is an opportunity to share your love story. Pair images of you as a couple with organic elements of wood, foliage, moss and florals. Emphasise the space with classic rustic elements of burlap and don’t be scared to add plenty of twinkling lights. By using textured greenery your space will blend organically with your ceremony space and tie in seamlessly with your desired rustic theme.

Pre-wedding Photoshoot

To ensure your pre-wedding shoot images suit your theme choose an outdoor location that really heroes nature. Immerse yourself and your beau amongst trees and long grass, against natural cliff faces and bodies of water, for stunning portraits of rich earthy tones that will sit perfectly on your reception table.
