August Lord of the Rings themed wedding at The Woodhouse Barn

When we were first approached by Eva and Ryan and they told us about their Lord of the Rings themed wedding, I gave a little squeal of excitement! We absolutely love creating a Blossoms and Berries twist on a theme and elevating it in an unexpected way, so this was an absolute joy of a design theme.

For the bridal bouquet Eva opted for a large cascading bouquet featuring Ivy, ferns and pheasant feathers in green and white with a hint of blue. The flowers used were Hydrangeas, Amaranthus, Malope and Dahlias mixed with seed pods, fir cones and grasses. All the flowers and foliage were grown by ourselves and Eva came to the farm a couple of weeks before the wedding with her family to see what flowers would be in season.

Wild and wispy Bridesmaid's bouquets

The Bridesmaid's bouquets were a smaller more compact version of Eva's bouquet, we think they look fantastic against the sophisticated full length Bridesmaid's dresses in earthy blues and greens.

For the venue, Eva and Ryan chose The Woodhouse Barn, which could not have been a more perfect setting for the Middle Earth inspired table centres crafted by the couple. For the top table we created an asymmetrical branch that was used both for the ceremony table and then transferred to the reception room. This was an absolute joy to create and we loved how it cascaded off the table with Ivy foraged from our woodland.

The Woodhouse Barn features an incredible staircase, which the owners crafted themselves from locally sourced wood. It even features hand carved mice scurrying down the wall and Eva wanted these to remain a feature when dressing the staircase. We therefore designed an asymmetrical floral cloud as a staircase feature. Everything we design is always completely bespoke and unique and this cloud was installed with the assistance of our fellow flower farmer Bethan from Buds and Blooms.

We were so delighted when we saw the photos from the incredible Thomas Roberts Photography, West Wales has lots of very talented photographers and Tom's editorial style and eye for a beautiful backdrop makes him one of the best. We love how he captured not just the ethereal beauty of Eva and Ryan's special day but also the fun, joy and love that was evident wherever you turned! The album was packed full of beautiful moments for Eva and Ryan to treasure forever and below are just a few of our favourites. Llongyfarchiadau Eva and Ryan!
