‘Tuscany Meets English Countryside’ Pastel Blue and Gold Wedding Inspiration

This morning I have a truly delightful styled shoot for you, as I take you off to dreamy Tuscany via the English countryside of Warwickshire. The shoot took place on 4th July 2020 at Umberslade Farm Park in Tamworth in Arden. Martina Paul of Wonderful Events and Lana of Boutique Marquees co-ordinated the shoot, and what a beauty it is. Their inspiration was the coast line of Tuscany, mixed with plenty of dried flowers. ‘We wanted to show our couples that keeping décor simple can be highly effective with the right items. I think the pastel blues are quite charming and the dry pampas grass adds the modern touch.’ The shoot has a dreamy, chilled quality to it, with the beautiful muted tones and gorgeous flowers.

Light, fresh and modern, coastal Tuscany inspired shoot in a Petal Pole marquee. Pastel blues with vintage crockery and dry flowers makes for a classy yet relaxed wedding setting in the English countryside.

Martina and Lana tell us more about the shoot 

With visions of sun-filled luxurious marquee wedding in coastal Tuscany, a unique team of fantastically creative suppliers brought to life the outdoor wedding shoot of dreams. Given free reign of the expansive grounds at Umberslade Farm in Tanworth-in-Arden, they filled a gorgeous traditional Petal Pole marquee with an abundance of dried florals and Italian-inspired props, courtesy of florist and stylist Katie of The Vintage House That Could. Envisaging creamy pastel blues, set off by wild grasses, the team set about filling their blank canvas. Katie told us, “Pale blues, vintage glass, hints of gold, lots of dried grasses and raffia make you feel like you have just stepped of the beach and into a Tuscan villa! I used decadent gold-rimmed plates, gold cutlery and beautiful bespoke blue and white stationery to add that touch of luxury whilst the dried flowers and grasses help to bring the sense of the outdoors and coastal vibes. Clean white linen paired with vintage blue and white vessels really added to the classic and timeless feel.”
Shot by sought-after West Midlands wedding photographer Rosie Kelly, their mission to bring the Italian coast to the sunny West Midlands, sprang to life.

Clair wore a dress by Ava May Bridal, and looked radiant against the light, luminous backdrop of the traditional tent. Our groom was dressed by Thomas at Henley House, His suit was the perfect choice for the Italian, summertime vibes.

Cocktails were flowing courtesy of master mixologists Mix and Twist, while the stunning work of Nina from Beanie’s Bakery sat centre-stage atop a rustic barrel. “Inspired by the Tuscany colour palette, I chose to use soft pastel blue and fresh white with accents of 24-carat edible gold leaf raw edges. The simplicity of the masculine sharp-edged hexagon is softened by the Pampas Grass and Bleached Ruscus floral wooden hoops which complements the sophisticated table settings.’

A gloriously light and open space, with top table covered in pure white cloths and accented by gorgeous linens from natural dyeing artisan, Mia Sylvia, the Petal Pole marquee was the perfect backdrop, courtesy of marquee hire specialists Boutique Marquees. Te marquee with its gently scooped roofline, scalloped roof canopy and beautiful hand-turned wooden finials, lent itself wonderfully to the traditional Italian dreamscape. The result was magical and alluring, providing the perfect canvas for a seriously talented collective of creative minds, and gorgeous couple.
