Irish rustic and natural wedding inspiration

So, one of my favourite things about this job is creating inspiration boards for my bride and grooms! As a wedding stylist, I don’t tend to use the word “theme” but more “elements”; these are personal stories, memories, backgrounds and the wedding venue that can be entwined throughout the wedding design. In this instance the groom hails from Ireland and so instead of over-theming the day (which can be so easily done if anyone types in Irish Wedding into google!), the idea is that you can subtly introduce elements into the day. For example, layered tweeds creates fantastic texture. Delicate laces reflect the history of linen and lace production in Ireland. Perhaps a delicately laid shamrock on a rustic linen napkin wrapped up with rough twine or raffia ; simple but effective for an Irish rustic wedding and nothing is too overdone on the theming front.

Some brides don’t like flowers. Yes, I said it! Some just love the natural look; green foliage, bark, moss and twigs so a suspended chandelier trailing natural greens and old fashioned lights is perfect and creates a gorgeous soft dining ambience.

Using our rustic up cycled pallet wood tables for hire, chairs, our pottery, vases Blue Wren Barn can help you design and achieve this look for your wedding or event. Drop us a line for a free telephone consultation, we’d love to hear from you!
