Chic Barn Wedding at The Granary Estates
M & J married at The Granary Estates in August this year, to a backdrop of warm neutrals, soft sage green and lots of pampas grass. The couple opted for our full styling service, which saw us design and coordinate all of the styling and floral elements for the day. Working alongside an excellent team of suppliers, we loved designing this dreamy boho look and incorporating an abundance of pampas, dried grasses and delicate florals.
The process started when we met M & J to discuss their vision and ideas for the day. The brief was natural and organic florals, with lots of dried grasses and texture, as well as a palette of soft neutrals and sage, with hints of blush and gold. Kerry and Millie set to work on the designs, creating a mood board, colour palette, and design summary for the event.
As a team, we adore this part of the process, and our meetings are a great chance to understand your priorities for the day, your vision, likes and dislikes, and all the other elements that make up the day. From there, the ideas continue to develop and there is a flurry of back and forth whilst we tweak the proposed designs, until they are perfect. Our full styling service allows you to get the most from the team and our different services. We love to work collaboratively, share ideas and create a well thought out design which captures everything you’re looking for.
The design of the ceremony was a priority for the couple, and they wanted this to be a real wow moment. We created a bespoke moon gate, which incorporated the perfect balance of fresh florals and foliage, and dried Pampas Grass and Palm spears. The asymmetrical design created a striking backdrop that not only framed the couple during the ceremony but was also later repurposed behind the top table and then for photos in the evening. The design of the moon gate was echoed by the floral meadows that were dotted organically down the aisle. The natural and abundant look of the arrangements perfectly suited the brief and style of the event, and we love the finished look.

When creating M’s bouquet, she wanted something striking and modern, which incorporated both fresh and dried florals and was in keeping with the overall designs. Millie’s hand tied creation used delicate garden roses, including Quicksand and Sahara, as well as lots of dried and bleached elements, such as dried Honesty, Bunny Tails and bleached Amaranthus to give a modern boho feel to the design. The four bridesmaids had complimentary bouquets but made in a smaller size.
After the ceremony, the main barn was transformed for the wedding breakfast. The guests were seated at round tables, with a long top table looking across the barn. For the round tables, we created tall arrangements on gold frames, which complimented the gold accents used throughout the day. The height of the centrepieces made for a striking design. The arrangements themselves, were filled with lush foliage and florals; an abundance of Pampas Grass, bleached Ruscus and dried Palm spears. The results were a dream boho look that was incredibly impactful in the main barn.
The top table was lined with brass taper candle holders and Ester and Erik candles in soft neutral tones. These were interspersed with delicate bottle and bud vase arrangements in amber glass. Both the top table and guest tables had gold crackle glaze tea lights dotted along them, providing a soft warm light and romantic feel.
We also worked with CMA Hire to handpick the different tableware. We opted for off-white cloths, which gave a rich look and added texture to the tablescape. These were then complimented perfectly by soft linen sage napkins and sage water glasses. We also incorporated gold cutlery and gold rimmed glassware and charger plates to add a luxe feel to the designs.
We worked with Louise at LouPaper to design the stationery. Louise’s designs included perspex, curved edges and hints of soft sage to tie in with the palette. The results were stunning and gave a cool modern edge to the design. We sourced bespoke gold frames for the table plan, order of the day, and welcome sign to stand on and added floral bursts to each of these.
The cake was made by the wonderful Jess at One Part Love. She added a cascade of florals down the left side of the cake, with an asymmetrical burst to the top right. We styled the cake on our Hazel dresser and added taper candles in a trio of tones from Ester and Erik.
We absolutely loved working with this lovely couple and hope you enjoy looking through the images from the day, captured perfectly by Liam Smith Photography. To find out more about our full styling service, get in touch now.
