Wedding venue Silchester Farm is a charming rustic barn venue in Hampshire. The bride and groom Natalie and Will run a farm shop together, so a gorgeous fancy farm was the perfect setting for their big day. Bride Natalie hired a fab group of suppliers to bring together her stunning vision to life. She styled all the décor and beautiful details which were coordinated by Bluebird Creative and captured by photographer Chloe Caldwell.
The moody lighting and fab atmosphere of Silchester Farm was a beautiful backdrop for this stylish and elegant wedding style. Dorset Flowers provided an abundance of incredible florals, including dahlias and cosmos in a dreamy colour palette with late summer tonal pastel blush pinks, nudes and a pop of toffee. The stationery and signage all followed a blush pink palette which looked gorgeous with the touches of green from the bridesmaids’ dresses.
Natalie and Will chose the Hollie stationery collection which has a contemporary and minimalist design. I personalised their names with hand drawn calligraphy on dusky pink card. All of the wedding stationery collections on my website can be personalised to change the colour to suit your wedding style.
I designed a welcome sign to welcome the guests in style along with a timeline with playful icons for each event. I loved designing this beauty with a pink background to match all their stationery.
The table plan I designed also on a pink watercolour background using calligraphy on acrylic for the table names. The sign was placed on a rustic wooden easel, styled with the gorgeous florals and some candles for a romantic atmosphere.
Wedding Breakfast Set Up
The wedding breakfast was set up in the Cow Shed Barn at Silchester Farm with handcrafted wooden tables set out in a banquet style and a top table, cross backed chairs and crystal china. The top table featured a beautiful floral display and flowers were placed in crystal vases on all the guest tables, alongside pastel pink candles.
Each guest had their place name on a vellum layer secured with a modern pin to a menu printed on dusky pink card with a touch of calligraphy. The couple had handmade gin favours for all of their guests in cute little bottles with a personalised sticker.
For the table names I hand calligraphered onto pale pink card which was placed into a gold frame for each table.
Let’s take a moment for the cake! Wow! An incredibly stylish 3 tier with an intricate gold foil design by Elizabeth at Cake Buds. I designed a small sign with a calligraphy flourish to let guests know the different flavours which is of course essential information!
Other On The Day Stationery
If you’re writing your own vows, these personalised his and hers vow booklets are the perfect place to house your special words and coordinate with the rest of the stationery. Secured with a silk ribbon for a luxe touch and a gorgeous keepsake for the couple from their big day.
You can have small signage to let guests know any important details of your wedding day. Natalie and Will had a signature cocktail each which I personalised a sign for.
It’s so important to reserve seats at your ceremony, particularly for your wedding party, family and anyone with a role in the ceremony such as witnesses and guests doing readings. I can personalise little tags like these to reserve seats. I’m happy to personalise with names too!
Wedding Party Outfits
Bride Natalie looked beautiful in her bridal gown from Made With Love Bridal. A slim fit dress with a v neck and intricate bead detailing, with her hair styled in an elegant low bun and a veil. Groom Will and his groomsmen looked suave in black tuxedo suits. Natalie’s three bridesmaids wore green silk maxi dresses and all carried a bouquet of the pretty wedding flowers.
The couple were accompanied by their two dogs who wore personalised green bow ties and walked them back down the aisle once married!
I was delighted to be a part of this stunning wedding day. Thank you to Natalie and Will and I wish you a very happy marriage. Here’s a couple more photos from their lush wedding day….
