A Beautiful Barn Wedding with Pink & Sage Green Details

I've got some pretty perfect wedding details to show off to you in this afternoon's beautiful barn wedding. Keri and Kiran chose pastel colours as their wedding palette, and I love the simplicity of the white on white table linens, and the occasional pop of pink roses. Stealworthy ideas include the wire heart table-plan {such an easy but elegant design}, the delicate rose petal table decorations, and the twisted three-tier, square wedding cake. Stunning wedding pictures published with thanks to the lovely Kayleigh Pope Photography.

We got married in Dodford Manor in the Northamptonshire countryside, on 30th July 2013. 

Our photographer was Kayleigh Pope. We chose her through a recommendation, and as she lived so close by, many of our friends knew her personally. After seeing some of her work it was a very easy decision.

We looked round a hotel venue before we found Dodford Manor  and we quickly realised that it was everything we didn't want. We wanted a place which we could hire exclusively for our wedding and our guests, and somewhere that would take beautiful pictures and really impress our guests. 

Once we had found our venue it was easy to come up with decoration ideas. In our opinion it needed pastel colours and lots of romantic, personal touches.

Our original ideas on colours were just to have sage green and ivory - until we saw the bridesmaid dresses in pink, and thought how well the colours went together. Then we adapted the palette to just pastel colours in general, which ran through the whole wedding.

We wanted to give a personal touch to the favours, so we decided to buy our own chiffon fabric and tie up some chocolates inside them with ribbon. It took so much time and effort but I was glad we did it and it did give the tables that personal touch. 

The favours were a bigger DIY task than we originally thought! We also made the table plan and table names from scratch.

Our florist was one of my bridesmaid's sisters who is amazingly talented. She gave us so many ideas and made the arrangements and bouquets to perfection.  We had pink and ivory roses, and tiny gypsophila {baby's breath} flowers.

My advice to brides planning their big day? Take your time. You don't want to look back on your day and have something that bugged you because you didn't perfect it. You only get one wedding day, make it count.

We went for a square, twisted three-tier cake, simply because it was a bit different from the traditional round cakes. We added sage green ribbons to fit in with our wedding theme colours.
