Rustic Wedding Inspiration - Hanging Gardens at Maunsel House

Images by Helen Lisk Photography.

Fancy an alfresco summer wedding party? Then take a look at this gorgeous outdoor space at Somerset wedding venue Maunsel House. I adore the terracotta tones in this editorial designed by Nikki, the wonderful stationer and stylist behind Knots & Kisses.

Notes from the Stylist

Nikki says…

I was totally inspired by the beautiful pergola at Maunsel House and its existing florals. The idea of having the majority of the floral decorations for a wedding hanging from above rather than on the tables lead to a ‘Hanging Gardens’ theme, incorporating not only beautiful hanging floral arrangements but also the interiors trend for hanging pot plants.

This theme followed on into ideas for a hanging ‘floating’ cake and also a hanging fabric table plan… both of which worked amazingly with the already stunning roses on the pergola.

Colour inspiration again came from interiors trends and I really wanted to introduce an on trend terracotta colour into a traditional palette of blush and burgundy to give the colour scheme a bit more of an edge.
