Spring garden wedding ideas | Photo by Sarah Hannam | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Spring-garden-wedding-ideas

Anyone else totally enamored by all the springy bouquets popping up lately? It’s amazing how color preferences can completely change with the seasons. Even if you haven’t set your sights on a garden wedding, the photos Sarah Hannam snapped at the Illuminated Collective wedding photography workshop in Cotswolds, England are pretty darn charming. Abundant peonies, sumptuous desserts… What’s not to love?

Sarah explains, Barnsley House is a highly sought after wedding venue, as the gardens are simply beautiful. Literally everywhere you look is a perfect place to take a stroll amongst lichen-covered statues, trickling fountains, topiary, and riots of colourful blooms, or sit awhile daydreaming beneath the wisteria arbor. Ceremonies are held in the tranquility of a folly beside the ornamental pond garden, which is where we photographed until the sun disappeared behind the trees and the air grew cool. As the day drew to a close, it was time to say goodbye to this awesome team and head back west, but not before enjoying a little supper in the village pub. In hindsight it is probably a good thing I missed the hotel’s outdoor spa or I think I may never have left.

The Rose Shed whipped up bridal bouquets to cater to both ends of the spectrum: a bright peony bouquet with ranunculus and snapdragons, and a simple white bunch of buddleia to contrast.

We’re quite pleased to be stepping into the weekend with this darling shoot on the mind. Mary Claire Photography + the team found a little slice of the French countryside right at home in Arizona, and when you find such a place you clearly make the most of it!

We wanted this shoot to make you feel as if you were transported to the French countryside. From the early stages of planning we wanted to keep the design clean and simple with an organic, ethereal feel. We wanted the gorgeous tablescape to seamlessly integrate with its surroundings and the loose, organic shape of the florals and elements foraged from the location achieved this look. Ultimately we love the idea of an effortlessly sophisticated bride and groom, the type of people who are completely at ease with themselves and each other, the type of bride who runs around barefoot hand in hand with her love.

Sara says, Our 2015 collection was inspired by watercolored florals and branches. I recently began watercoloring as a hobby and a form of meditation so the sketches and paintings that I practiced with really made my imagination turn. Also as a violinist during the day, everything about classical music inspires me in my designs. See the music influence below…
