Taking the woodland setting a inspiration, I designed this invitation in the form of a wooden log, with a naive hand-painted floral motif and a fun swivel twist.

Kemer Country Orman Evi, a small grass area surrounded by woodland, was exactly the kind of rustic country atmosphere the bride and groom were looking for.

The bride and groom wanted to keep the place feeling very relaxed and informal, with traditional wooden furniture and natural local greenery for flowers. I seated young guests near the large dance floor, and older guests sat at flower-shaped table formations under hanging light 'gazebos'.

The family own a ceramics firm so I designed plates for each of the courses.

Mixing the chair styles helped create a more informal boho feel.

A wedding for nature lovers

This lovely, elegant, sweet-hearted bride is passionate about animals and nature.  She loves fresh flowers, but she hates to see huge arrangements of cut flowers at weddings as she thinks it's a pity to shorten their lives.

As a solution, I proposed a wedding decor where (as much as possible) the 

flowers were uncut and could be re-planted after the ceremony.  

Shown here: the invitation incorporated 

separate cards for the church ceremony and dinner reception, in a monogramed linen envelope.  To set a natural tone for the wedding, fabric was organic and the monogram incorporated flowers and leaves.

After talking with the client, I created this moodboard for the event.

My visual for the event, showing fresh white furniture and lots of greenery and white floral inside an old-fashioned tent that would need to be custom-made for this event.

Tables had living flower beds 'growing' beneath them.  I designed the floral decor so that as much as possible, the flowers could be re-potted after the event.

Linen napkins had the couple's monogram embroidered on to them to add a sophisticated twist.

Young guests sat at tables with 'flowerbeds' of moss and wild flowers growing out of the centre.
