Tailoring to couples looking for an intimate affair – that is more than an elopement and less than a full-blown wedding – the team have put together this daytime picnic wedding inspo for you, dear readers, to enjoy today.
‘This type of wedding could really suit couples with small children, or possibly second marriages who have already done the “big” wedding,’ says Carmen from Riverwood Weddings.
‘Couples still very much get a wedding day look, beautiful photos and ceremony, and a relaxed luncheon to celebrate with close family and friends.’
The inspiration for the day was drawn from casual, chilled-out, boho vibes.
Using low timber tables, stylist Bek created an ‘X’ shaped layout on top of vintage rugs and under a canopy of vintage-style bunting. She then decorated the table with brass vases, gold cutlery, pretty pink napkins and stunning laser-engraved, timber menus, and scattered plenty of fluffy cushions and leather and weaved ottomans around the place to give the picnic a stylish feel.
The fabulous bar area featured a wine barrel high bar, as well as a super cute pop-up bar from Humming Bird Catering. Wanting to add elements of fun to the space, Bek dressed up the catering van with a balloon installation that was also used on the naked tipi ceremony arbour.
For florals, The Posy Collective created wild botanical bouquets, featuring a unique combination of dried native and delicate petal flowers.
‘The fresh scent of eucalyptus, combined with the perfume from the deep red Columbian roses, were an absolute delight,’ says Carmen.
