This styled shoot planned by the experts at Mary Cushen Weddings whisks viewers away to the gentle rolling hills of France. Captured by Chloe Ely Photography and located on the grounds of the Huntsmill Farm in the Buckinghamshire countryside, this shoot reflects a barn-style inspiration that's more romantic than rustic. Classic French blue and white hues graced the refined ambiance and inspired the natural florals throughout the venue. The seasonal bouquets tied together with some lesser-known florals were provided by the designers at Willow and Thyme. A hand-painted cake that also reflected the color palette by Cherry Tree Cakerie complemented the lavish yet refined table décor.

According to the planner, the top tips for recreating this look are to choose at least three shades of blue, so that the focus of the blue stands out, but isn't overpowering or overwhelmed by the ambiance. Next, choose a venue with exposed stone walls and loads of natural light; the lighter the stone, the better. Lastly, a hand-painted cake makes all of the difference by providing a spot of elegance and grace.
