Popcorn Photography recently captured a real wedding with a romantic rustic theme. We loved the simplicity and the elegant twist on this traditional theme so we thought we'd share all the details with you for a special 'Stylin Sunday!'
A rustic themed wedding is always popular, but mixed with a little romance it's perfection! This theme works well all year round and suits both indoor and outdoor weddings. If you're thinking you'd like a romantic rustic theme for your wedding, you have to make sure your venue works with the theme.
Jess and Brent's wedding was held at Peppers Creek at The Barrel Room in The Hunter Valley, which was the perfect backdrop for a romantic rustic wedding theme. The wooden elements, exposed brick walls and large fireplace created an earthy feel. The bride did most of the styling and complemented the venue's rustic atmosphere with elegant, romantic features.
The bride chose a colour palette that consisted of white, shades of cream and brown along with hints of green. It suited the venue exquisitely. The bride created a romantic atmosphere by using dim lighting and placed lots of candles and soft yellow fairy lights throughout the venue.
Simple bunches of baby's breath flowers were used as the wedding flowers and it tied in well with the rustic romantic theme. The décor was kept simple and the tables were understated, decorated with candles and small bunches of baby's breath flowers. Baby's breath is a favoured choice for wedding flowers given it's versatility, suiting many different styles and almost every colour palette.
Jess and Brent's wedding cake was a beautiful, rustic two-tiered white cake, iced with buttercream. They used a small bunch of baby's breath flowers as a cake topper, which tied the cake in with the overall theme.
Other decorations included some glass elements such as the clear glass candleholders and vases. To create a rustic feel, the bride wrapped some of the glasses with rough brown rope and added some white paper with cut out patterns. Black chalkboards on wooden easels were used to display the menu and other information for guests.
The rustic elements of the venue were softened with elegant white fabric that was draped around the wooden ceiling and beams. Soft drapery is a great way to personalise a venue and it can be used to create a romantic and intimate atmosphere.
At this real wedding, the bride took on several DIY projects to help establish her desired theme. The seating chart was made from cardboard and white paper and she used string and small wooden pegs to decorate the chart. Using simple and understated décor is an excellent way to add sophistication and elegance to a rustic wedding theme.
