Remember Shakespeare’s Midsummer Nights Dream? This wedding was inspired by it because 2016 was the 400 year celebration of Shakespeare and it also has some woodland touches. The spt for the ceremony was a unique one – it was a cave!

For the ceremony they decorated the cave with candles, old books and ornaments. The couple borrowed lots of antique books supplied by the family and had them in piles covered with lit pillar candles which created the most incredible atmosphere. The bride wanted the wedding flowers to look hand picked and wild so opted for raspberries, thistles, poppy heads, peonies, eucalyptus and willow bark. Her bouquet was tied with vintage lace and filled with the most incredible foliage.

The couple decorated the reception venue with items from their own home – including crates filled with dried roses, stacks of antique books tied with twine, bird cages and wine bottles covered in dripping wax. They hung the fresh foliage from the beams wrapped in lights. Each table was named after a character in A Midsummer’s Night Dream and had a quote from the play. In front of the top table we had huge silver candelabra dripping with candles, it was completely over the top and looked gorgeous.

The wedding dress was a unique one, a backless ethereal gown with stunning back jewelry to accentuate it. Her hair was loose and curly, and she also wore a cool boho-chic headpiece that echoed with her back jewelry. The groom was wearing a classic and a bit conservative grey suit and a white shirt.
