An intimate church ceremony, boho florals and the most beautiful styling – Natasha & Ryan’s Summer Glanusk Estate Wedding was completely idyllic. Every detail had been lovingly thought out.
We caught up with Natasha & Ryan to find out how they created such a beautiful and special wedding…
Boho wedding inspiration “summer meadow meets Bridgeton”
“I was definitely inspired by lots of boho mood boards on pinterest. I say ‘I’ because I’m not sure Ryan cared about much more other than the food, the music and the cost. I knew I didn’t want it to look too “themed.” I didn’t want a “pink” or “green” or a “blue” wedding, so we went for a muted pastel pallet. Natural and relaxed but with an elegant rather than rustic feel. Summer meadow meets Bridgeton.”
Helping Natasha and Ryan to create her vision was the amazing Megan & Claude for the styling and Hilarys floral design for the beautiful flowers.
Choosing the idyllic Glanusk Estate as a wedding venue
Set in the gorgeous Brecon Beacons National Park, with 360 views of the surrounding Usk Valley and with plenty of romantic locations for images. It creates a beautiful setting for your Wedding day.
“It was important to us to have a venue where we could have the ceremony and reception in one location, had accommodation and of course experience hosting a tipi. As soon as we met Harry, the estate owner we knew we where going to be able to create a totally bespoke day. We really did not want a package day. The views from Glanusk Lodge site sold us”
Tipis fit the boho relaxed wedding feel
“I wanted a blank canvas (literally) to build a totally bespoke day. I liked the idea of being able to pick each piece of decor and each supplier myself. I always look to do things differently to how i’ve seen them done before. We’d never known anyone to have a tipi wedding but they all looked AMAZING on Pintrest. It was a bit of a risk as we had never been inside one, right up until it went up on the Thursday before the big day, but it was a risk that definitely paid off. “
Tipis are such a versatile structure that will suit all ideas, they truly are a blank canvas for you to create your dream day. With the ability to join tipis together you can create special areas for relaxation and bar space.
All about your wedding guests
Although the day is about the beautiful couple, a big part of your day is the guests and how they feel attending your special day.
“Mostly we wanted our guests to have fun. We envisioned a festival style atmosphere without the festival themed decor. We wanted every guest to feel important and loved by us as a couple & not to feel like there was a divide between his and her guests or between those who were in the wedding party and those who weren’t. This was why we went for long banqueting tables, a sharing feast & ditched the top table – everybody could sit close together and get to know each other during the meal which always makes for a better party atmosphere later.”
All the little things
“It was important that guests felt comfortable & planned the day well to ensure it wasn’t too rushed nor were there long periods of time where people would be bored. Having delicious food was so important – nothing worse than feeling hungry as weddings are such a long day for guests.”
“The musician, audio guestbook & photobooth also helped with the relaxed but fun atmosphere as well as the outdoor bar! Having this outside meant guests could make the most of the venue and it’s amazing views.”
“For us having enough space for sitting in or out of the tipi, rain or shine, and having a quieter zone in the chill out tent for the Nans was really important to making sure everyone was comfy and enjoying their day (as well as having the most luxurious portaloos we could find). We also wanted an amazing party. The tipi acoustics were fab for the band & DJ! “
Looking through Natasha and Ryans images from their day you can really see that all of this was achieved. By having that vision and then finding suppliers who share that with you really can create something beautiful.
Thank you Natasha & Ryan for choosing All About ME.
