Country Vintage Wedding Styling at Bawdon Lodge Farm

Hello! I think you’re going to need to stick the kettle on for this post today. We’ve got some gorgeous images from not one but TWO vintage styled wedding shoots that we worked on to share with you. If I said the words, rustic, country, vintage, hay bales, afternoon tea, roses and hydrangeas. Would your heart be set a flutter? Well, there is all that and more in the shoots today.

The props, china, linens, furniture and styling are all from us at Darby & Joan – get in touch if you are looking to create something similar for your day.

So grab that cuppa (maybe a cheeky biscuit) and indulge yourself in a little vintage country wedding inspiration.

The shoots, organised by Val at Benessamy Weddings and Events was put together ahead of a brand new Wedding Venue opening in the wonderful East Midlands. Bawdon Lodge Farm is a family owned country farm in Nanpantan, Leicestershire, and is due to launch as a country wedding venue later this year and is available for weddings in 2014. The owners, Richard & Lynn Bailey were passionate about working with local suppliers to showcase the venue’s versatility and Darby and Joan had the pleasure of styling the shoots alongside a fabulous team of talented suppliers. Creativity was in full flow and a lot of fun was had by all down on the farm. A big thank you to Val at Benessamy for superb co-ordinating, Alix at Lumiere Photography for capturing the beautiful images and to Bawdon Lodge; we wish you all the success in the world, we just know your stunning venue will be a success.

A Vintage Country Wedding

The inspiration behind the first shoot was Vintage Country Wedding. Featuring a hay bale ‘theatre’ (pretty darn fabulous) and beautiful blooms this shoot oozes country sophistication. You’ll also spot a selection of our props and vintage china throughout the styling, all of which can of course be hired from us. Enjoy.

A Rustic, Afternoon Tea Styled Wedding

Next up, we have a slightly different feel for the second shoot. Inspired by Vintage Afternoon Tea this look is a little more rustic, with simple burlap table runners, mismatched china, and soft hues of blue and pinks. Capturing all of the charm of an English Afternoon Tea, this shoot is relaxed, subtle and oh so pretty.
