Groom taking picture of bride blowing kiss

Following on from the Vintage Country Styled Wedding Shoot we featured last week, today we have the stunning pictures from the second shoot which took place at Bawdon Lodge Farm. The inspiration for the shoot, which was again planned and co-ordinated by Val of Benessamy Weddings and Events, was a relaxed, rustic country tea…

“The inspiration for this theme was the natural rustic charm of afternoon tea on an English country farm. Everything from the bleached pine sweetheart table, informally dressed with burlap runners, gorgeous mismatched china and informal linen, to the ‘vintage meets rustic’ inspired Polka Dots and Pinstripes stationery, and beautiful rustic bouquets of hydrangeas, roses and Gypsophila. Afternoon tea would not be complete of course without delicious scones and cakes for all to enjoy!

“The hay store ‘theatre’ provided the perfect opportunity for the couple to relax and enjoy a moment of reflection, followed by a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade from the outdoor drinks station.”
