Natural materials and an earthy colour palette set the scene for Natalie and Adam’s rustic romance at Staffordshire’s Packington Moor.

Before Natalie and Adam had even begun searching for wedding venues they’d already decided upon a theme. Having planned for a rustic celebration, they knew that a beautiful barn venue would be key…

Rustic romance

As soon as the couple came across Packington Moor, in Staffordshire, they knew it would complement their rustic wedding day. “It had great outdoor space, lots of places for photos, and a well decorated interior,” says Natalie. “I also loved the idea of staying overnight with my bridal party and enjoying breakfast the following morning at the farm shop!”

Naturally chic

To style their day the couple got creative with a bit of DIY and made their own copper wishing tree and table plan. They also stacked wooden apple crates on top of each other and decorated them with pictures and memories, while their wedding cake sat on a handmade log piece. With lots of natural materials featuring throughout the décor, Natalie and Adam settled on a pale pastel colour scheme in teal and green.

Pretty as a petal

The natural feel of the day was reflected in Natalie’s choice of gown too, which featured hydrangea petal details to match her bouquet. The rest of the wedding party wore teal, including Natalie’s two bridesmaids and her groom, Adam, who teamed his grey tails with a teal cravat.

Mr and Mrs

On the morning of the wedding Natalie arrived in a classic wedding car, hired from Love Wedding Cars in Sutton Coldfield. Following the ceremony, the couple relaxed and celebrated in the venue’s courtyard with all their family and friends. “We had canapés of mini fillet of beef with salsa verde, mini fish and chips, and shepherd’s pie tartlets,” says Natalie.

The food fest

The canapés were followed by a decadent three-course wedding breakfast featuring a pork and apple spring roll starter, turkey roast dinner, and a trio of puddings. The food didn’t stop there either. Come evening guests were fed yet again with a BBQ feast featuring a selection of meats. “We knew that people always remember a wedding based on how good the food was – so choosing a great menu was really important to us,” explains Natalie.

Simply perfect

The food wasn’t the only highlight of the day. The pair were left with dozens of special memories to remind them of their wedding day – from the Minion wedding cake topper to the speeches, everything was perfect.

Natalie’s personal favourite memory of the day though had to be the first dance. “Our friend and her partner did an acoustic version of Real Love, by Clean Bandit and Jess Glynn, for our first dance,” says Natalie. “Everybody loved it,” she adds. “It was the perfect end to all our planning – we wouldn’t have changed a thing!”
