Spring Wedding Styling
It’s spring, or at least it’s meant to be. If you’re suffering through my blog and it’s either not 2013 or you’re not in the UK it’s been a frickin’ cold spring. Especially if you’re not in South East England, we’ve had lots of air straight from Siberia. But we’ve had a couple of warmish days of late so I thought it would be good to go out with a camera and try and illustrate some of the points I made about spring on my article about colours on the English Wedding Blog. There I talked about the seasons, what they’re like and how you could take inspiration from them for styling your wedding. So this post is all about spring wedding styling inspiration! There’s also a post on spring table name ideas for more general springyness…
I think the images in this gallery should be fairly self-explanatory. It’s spring, new life is bursting out everywhere and trees which have slumbered through the winter are suddenly coming to life. Animals are either giving birth or are getting frisky. But we’re still not really out of the clutches of winter. The nights and mornings can suffer from frosts, the mornings can be misty. Young plants and animals may fall victim to sudden cold snaps. I really like the contrast you get where aged and slightly gnarled plants. They’re starting to burst back into life with new leaves and blossom yet you can still see the form of the branches much like you can in winter.
Style wise floral designs are a very good choice for a spring wedding. But you can also reflect spring through the colours you choose. Colour wise the colours are fresh, light, sometimes bright. Pastel shades I think suit spring brilliantly. Though you do get some very strong colours in the blossom and flowers that start to emerge.

I hope this article has helped just a little bit in shaping ideas for styling your wedding. I know it’s probably too late for 2013 weddings but I tend to see with my clients that the wedding picks up in earnest from a year or so out. Hopefully this article will be useful for people getting married in 2014 and beyond.
