Today’s lovely real wedding brought to us by Liam Smith Photography is brimming with lush florals and rustic details! Here’s Liam to tell us more:

An intimate barn wedding inspired by a portmanteau of the bride and grooms name, Team Fosh! Set amongst the rolling Northamptonshire countryside, bunting, pastel colors, and flower crowns define this beautiful summer wedding. Homemade and custom built details create the couple’s unique style and transform the converted barn at Dodford Manor. Eucalyptus, juliet roses, astilbe, sage green succulents and gyp all tied with hessian created the bride’s stunning bouquet. Hydrangeas and gypsophilas adorned the tables, and a custom designed four-tiered cake completed the boho-chic look.
