Wooden Crates, Vintage Bottles and Jugs Galore ~ Wedding Shoot with Bijoux Bride

Earlier this year we were contacted by Louise from Bijoux Bride to help style a shoot she was working on. The theme of her shoot was a Secret Garden, so our country garden wedding decorations and rustic wedding decorations were ideal for this. We both went down to The Medicine Garden, Cobham on a lovely summers afternoon to meet Louise and help her set up for the wedding shoot. Read Bijoux Bride blog part one and part two to see the whole shoot. wedding table decorations jugs bottles for shoot Getting our wedding decorations ready for the shoot. We took along a range of wedding decorations including silver jugs, silver buckets, cream jugs, vintage bottles, candy jars, tea light holders, LOVE blocks and a table plan. Photographer Liesl Cheney captured the whole day wonderfully. ivory cotton bunting vintage glass bottles wedding decorations wooden crates wedding decorations Our rustic wooden crates were used as a shelving backdrop, ivory bunting was draped from the old brick walls, country style loose flowers were displayed in our buckets, jugs and bottles. cream jug wedding centrepiece Wooden crates have so many uses, they make great shelving, here they have been used as tables for jugs to sit on, you could add some pretty cream fabric or lace to the crates too. These cream jugs would make lovely table decorations for a country style wedding with some tea light holders to finish off the country garden wedding look.  wooden crates stacked up wedding decorations vintage glass bottles wedding decorations I love the way the wooden crates can just be stacked up in a random pile to make shelves and surfaces at different heights. Use this at your outdoor rustic wedding to display extra floral displays, set up for a sweetie buffet, or as an area for guests to sign your guest book. Vintage glass bottles look great with simple single stem flowers, here they have blue and white statice for a country look but you could also use rose heads. rustic DIY wedding table plan If you have chosen a country or rustic theme for your wedding decor then you should decide on a table plan which incorporates this theme. We love this table plan with flower pots, fill each bucket with a cluster of flowers then add a luggage tag to each flower pot with your guests names on, one luggage tag per table. Thanks so much to Bijoux Bride and Liesl Cheney for involving us in this wedding shoot. We loved the results so much we have used one of the images on our front cover of our new brochure.

Passion for Flowers ~ Beautiful Vintage Marquee Wedding

Last weekend Passion for Flowers were involved in this beautiful vintage marquee wedding. We met Claire and her mum at The Designer Vintage Bridal Show in the Spring and have been working with her since then to help create the flowers for her wedding. Claire wanted anything but corporate, so a vintage tea party in a marquee draped in bunting in the garden of her family home was just perfect. We worked with Claire to create bouquets, button holes and floral wedding table arrangements to complement the ideas she had. Her wedding table centres were a mixture of silver candelabra filled with vintage summer blooms, while other tables had stunning glass biscuit barrels filled with flowers. Claire had been inspired by a family heir loom biscuit barrel and proceeded to collect more for her wedding. Although these aren't the official wedding photos I snapped some up while we were setting up.

New Wedding Decorations this Summer

Some of our favourite new wedding decorations this Summer.

We both went separately on trips to Marrakech last year and were inspired by the beautiful Moroccan decor, taking this on board we have sourced some Moroccan style items for weddings...

We have Moroccan Lanterns as well as handmade Moroccan candles and tea lights in Tins. The candles are a fair trade products and have been individually handmade.

Our blackboard buckets and signs have been such a hit recently, although we have had a couple of suggestions that the blackboard sticks for table numbers are too small if you're planning on naming your tables rather than numbering them. We have found some larger blackboards on sticks for you which are just perfect for more writing.

Another favourite is this fab spotty bunting!

If you're loving the assorted bottles and jam jars look for your guest tables, simply filled with flowers then check out our new French inspired glass bottles. They're beautiful and perfect for using in your bathrooms after your wedding or gifting to guests as favours.

Sticking with centre pieces we have some new more distressed looking cream jugs. Great for a summer garden party wedding or rustic tipi wedding.

A simple but very cute idea for place settings are these little white heart pegs, just write your guests names on plain card, luggage tags or patterned card and peg to their glasses.

And finally if you're treating your guests (and yourselves) to a sweetie buffet we have some new tongs, better than scoops for some sweets and look lovely on the table next to your candy bags and scoops.
