Stylist Charlotte of Princess Occasions, and whose words follow below, pulled off an utterly spectacular job of styling this gorgeous space with foraged goodies, gorgeous wild and rustic decor and detail and some colourful balloon fun.
These images by the way were taken by the very lovely Sam Bennett, who also happens to be super talented wedding photographer (located in Banbury and covering the whole of the UK, though primarily, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire).
I’m a huge fan of Sam’s work and adore his portraiture and ability to capture gorgeous, fun, contemporary imagery.
“What better setting for a rustic wild wedding than The Hall Barns at Prestwold.”
“Renovated in 2021, The Hall Barns in Prestwold is a quirky new wedding and events venue in the heart of Leicestershire.”
“Before we hosted our first real wedding, we designed a shoot to inspire our couples and launch ourselves into the wedding world as the inclusive, wild and fun-loving brand we are.”
“For gorgeous rustic wedding flowers, there was no other choice than Pickleberry Flowers.”
“The wedding breakfast simply stole the show with greenery and Cow Parsley, foraged from nearby woodland and locally grown Icelandic poppies and daisy’s to add a small pop of colour.”
“With French rusty urns, plenty of candles and fabrics from Princess Occasions we created a table meadowscape of dreams.”
“The rustic wedding cake by Bake Ashbourne used a deep terracotta buttercream with a rough stone finish and touches of gold leaf to capture the amazing light at The Hall Barns.”
“Three off-centre cubes formed the tiers which were dressed with tendrils of ivy to nestle effortlessly into the wild greenery on the tables.”
“Our beautiful brides, Gracey and Luci, wore dresses and suits designed by Jesus Piero and Stephanie Allin, all discovered in the bridal boutique Frances Day Bridal.”
“The looks were complete with relaxed waved hairstyles by Alison Jenner (and the coolest handmade daisy sunglasses).”
“Post ceremony celebrations included an epic gin bar created by The Hall Barns complete with signage from Mee & Es Designs.”
“The gin bar was framed with an awesome pastel balloon arch by Adorn Events Co and all the greenery your heart could desire.”
