If you’re longing for a wedding with a rustic countryside vibe, then today’s shoot at Lyth Valley Country Inn will give you loads of ideas for your wedding styling.
There is an eclectic mix of rustic styling ideas, from feathers and skulls to moss covered oak slices and bird nests, and also some styling elements which give a wonderful modern twist on the rustic nature of this concept. Giant grass covered LOVE letters create a modern backdrop whilst embracing the natural vibe. The florals are amazing too, with wildflowers and eucalyptus foliage mixed with bright blue flowers again giving a contemporary edge.
I adore the eclectic mix of old and new that creates real interest and intrigue. Beautifully rustic backdrops with vintage bikes, large light-up wooden letters, blankets, old books, tea cups and rustic furniture are brought to life in the surroundings of the countryside and Lyth Valley Country Inn.
Varying bridal styles each complement the rustic concept, from traditional chic with an elegant bridal look to rock chick with leather biker jacket and tattoos. These are perfect examples to show that little tweaks can make different styling concepts your own.
Carolyn of AMB-Vision joined forces with make-up artist Polly Winder to bring this rustic countryside wedding styling to life…
“Friends since birth and Lake District born and bred, Carolyn and I have both found ourselves working in the wedding industry but in completely different areas. So, we decided to work together to create a ‘Countryside Chic’ shoot. With spring just around the corner we wanted to create a shoot encapsulating the rustic beauty of the venue as well as its stunning surroundings.”
“Surrounded by Lake District countryside, Lyth Valley Country Inn has wonderful outdoor space, and the rustic countryside theme of the venue gave us the inspiration for varied wedding looks, from boho to a more classic bridal wear style.
“Each supplier contributed their own influence in the arrangement of the shoot and the results were exactly what we wanted.”
