Romantic Garden Wedding
♥ ♥ ♥
Astounding beauty from the inside and out was found at the celebration of Jasmine and Corey’s outdoor garden wedding celebration. The beautiful newlyweds and their equally stunning bridal party were offset by the blooming flowers and DIY decor touches found at their wedding.
Their dream of a rustic garden wedding was realised through months of collecting the perfect wooden decor accents, distressed furniture and antique bottles. Baby’s Breath and scrabble letters also featured strongly in adding the right amount of distinguished charm to their classy wedding, captured by Skyla Walton. Take a look!

(Above) Jasmine made a truly beautiful bride. Exuding an understated elegance and a glowing joy from within, she wore a strapless sweetheart-neckline style Pronovias “Petunia” wedding gown with a semi-transparent layer of tulle adorned with stunning lace designs and trimmings. Her hair was styled into a loose and flowing hairdo that was dressed up with a bohemian flower crown created from Baby’s Breath. (Check out some gorgeous wedding hairstyles to inspire you here.)
(Above) Held together with natural hessian or burlap, her bouquet was a combination of pastel-coloured flowers, which complimented her bridesmaids attire. (For DIY rustic bouquet recipes click here.)
(Above) The bridesmaids were a beautiful bunch too! Dressed in soft hues of pinks, peaches, purples and jade, their flowing and delicately pleated dresses have become a hit with many brides-to-be the world over. In addition to donning unique dress styles, their make-up and hair styling were kept subtle and chosen to enhance each of their beauty with being over the top.
(Above) They each carried a bustling bouquet of Baby’s Breath. Each element that completed their wedding look whether it be their dress, hair, make up or bouquet, was pretty in a subtle fashion, so that neither overpowered the others.

Romantic & Rustic Garden Wedding Ceremony
Their romantic wedding ceremony took place outdoors in front of an audience of their closest family and friends. The couple exchanged vows beneath a wooden altar that towered a few steps above the rest of their guests.
Romantic & Rustic Garden Wedding Reception
Their outdoor wedding reception was overflowing with vintage decor and rustic touches. Each table was uniquely decorated with outstanding DIY table numbers and an assortment of decor used for the centrepieces.
(Above) Vintage suitcases and a white-washed vintage wooden chair that sported a grass-inspired seat and cute cushions created an interesting feature as guests were arriving. The seating plan was written on glass that filled the frames of an old wooden divider stand.

Table centrepieces were a compilation of inspirational vintage ideas.

Interestingly, vases of Baby’s Breath were displayed alongside colourful flowers, which created a one-of-a-kind look.
