Beautiful Outdoor, Rustic and Botanical Wedding Inspiration at Rushmere Country Park

Today I am thrilled to share some beautiful outdoor, rustic and botanical Wedding Inspiration at Rushmere Country Park in Bedfordshire.

Images were captured by Perfect Timing Photography with styling by Pink Peony Weddings.

The shoot was set up by Hayleigh Smith, Weddings & Event Co-ordinator at Rushmere Country Park and Kelly Simmons  of Pink Peony Weddings to showcase the Venue as a beautiful setting for a Big Day.

An amazing group of local wedding specialists were chosen to make this shoot great and show off Rushmere as an outstanding wedding backdrop for all couples.

The Venue has many stunning photographic opportunities across its 400 acres of woodland and lakes  including the veranda, with its amazing view which is an amazing setting for a ceremony or blessing.


Model couple, Georgina and Jonny Mudd modelled for us, wearing an incredible selection of attire.

Jonny’s suit was loaned from Fogarty’s Formal Hire, and Georgina wore 4 dresses from both Ivory Wardrobe and  Bride’s Boutique Buckingham..

These were omplimented by pretty blue bridal shoes from Kay at Bride’s Boutique – Buckingham and a gorgeous hanpainted denim jacket created by Esther at Sylvie Designs.

Bridal hair and make-up were by Emma from Emma Shepherd Hair & Makeup artist.


We had an array of locations and set ups from the amazing tipi from The Natural Tent Company, to the marquee from Strawberry Fieldz, and also the woodland ceremony setting and a veranda ceremony setting with wooden arch and macrame backdrop from Soiree Events.

Celebrant Kelly Hawes was on hand with advice as the venue is not yet registered for legal ceremonies, but Kelly can perform a unique and special ceremony at Rushmere, while pianist Clare Lonsdale came along to serenade our bride and groom during the shoot.

Amazing florals were by Hayley at Bloomfields with a bouquet that included roses and spray roses, astilbe, lissianthus, agapanthus, asparagus fern, ruscus, eucalyptus.

Styling and planning and all the gorgeous table set ups were by Pink Peony Weddings.

Props including the copper frame, wooden backdrop for balloons, wooden direction signs, order of the day sign came from Sam at Samsa Mays.

The fabuous three tier wedding cake was by Melissa at Minnie’s Cakes and Bakes with wooden cake stand from Samsa Mays;  and a rose coloured hexagonal cake frame which was loaned from Kate at Bramblesky.

Melissa also provided yummy summer cupcakes for the shoot.

Tipi tables, benches and fur rugs from The Natural Tent Company. with a basket of blankets (in Tipi) from Soiree Events, and tables, linen, crockery and glasses from Jaspers; Chair hire from Stardust Events.

The pretty Calligraphy stationery was  by Anneka at Lettered by Annie  while all other stationery including table plan were from Kelly at Pink Peony Weddings.

This incredible rustic and  botanical Wedding Inspiration shoot showcases beautifully all the amazing options the setting provides from gorgeous meadow and woodland spaces to say your vows, to either a tipi or marquee to celebrate your amazing day with your guests.
