Real wedding: A rustic themed wedding with a grey and mint green colour scheme
Sophie and Ant's rustic wedding theme tied in perfectly with their barn wedding venue, with touches of hessian and lace completing the look. Sophie opted for a gorgeous princess style wedding dress with a full skirt and an open back, pairing the dress with Converse trainers for the ultimate in cool comfort. Sophie walked down the aisle to a harpist playing Perfect by Ed Sheeran, and the newlyweds chose Tenerife Sea, also by Ed Sheeran, for their first dance. Photographer | DM Photography
Real wedding: A tipi wedding with a rustic theme and a gorgeous Rebecca Ingram dress
Suzanne and Mat's tipi wedding venue set the tone for their day, with the couple choosing a whimsical rustic theme, comprising of twinkling fairy lights, touches of hessian and dusty pink hues. Mat and his groomsmen embraced the rustic theme too, with dapper suits, while Suzanne went for all out glamour in her wedding dress with the most beautiful back detailing. Rather than a traditional sit-down meal, Suzanne and Mat opted for BBQ platters of garlic chicken, pulled pork, stuffed peppers and macaroni cheese, which went down a storm with the guests.

Real wedding: A rustic alpine themed wedding day in the Austrian alps
Lorenza and Roy held their wedding in Salzburg, the place where they first met. The alpine location influenced their decor for the day, which comprised of log slices, a bottle green colour scheme and bold pink blooms. The couple designed their own wedding stationery, creating a cute logo with a stag on it, and it wasn't the only deer that appeared on the day - they also had a cute deer cake topper atop their naked wedding cake. Lorenza lived a lifelong dream, wearing a pretty floral crown, created from the same flowers that appeared on their wedding stationery. Photographer | Stephanie Swann
