The White Barn is an exciting new wedding venue in Somerset with white panelled walls, high ceilings and chic detailing – a beautiful blank canvas for couples to create a unique setting for their wedding.”

“Nestled in the heart of the countryside, surrounded by golden fields, beautiful outdoor spaces and a garden full of cosmos, it was the perfect setting for a meadow inspired shoot.”

“The beautiful setting provided inspiration for a number of the details, from the textured buttercream cake and hand-painted macaroons created by Little Buttercup Cakery, to the wildflower florals, venue styling and the leaf lace detail on the dress.”

The Petal Emporium’s flowers featured Somerset grown stems in a wild, natural and loose style. Pulling in elements to mirror the barn’s own meadow and gardens, the bouquet and other arrangements showcased seasonal beauties such as cosmos and dahlias, with a further array of seasonal flowers.”

“Grasses, vines and plush green leaves formed the backdrop for the summer flowers including garden roses, clematis, larkspur, phlox and flowering herbs to name but a few. The statement bouquet had a garden gathered feel to it, finished with a delicate natural silk ribbon.”

The design features a wrap over style in beautiful leaf style lace, with delicate pleating and pretty capped sleeves edged with complementing lace detailing that is also used on the back and on the waist seam.
