The rustic wedding theme has become particularly popular in the last few years and it’s simple to recreate! Just remember to embrace natural elements and keep it simple. Think boho wedding dresses, rustic decor, native flowers and most importantly the intimate venue.

Think warming colours
No rustic wedding is complete without natural, simple florals. Many brides decide to style their rustic weddings with neutral tones and a very natural colour scheme.
For a more glamourous and luxurious twist on the rustic theme we suggest using a warmer colour palette. The Cellars natural ambience and stunning sandstone walls make a perfect backdrop which can easily be used with either choice of colour schemes. Red, orange and purple tones make a brilliant eye catching contrast and are our pick for a non-traditional wedding.
Embrace the perfectly imperfect
Rustic weddings are all about simplicity and embracing the perfectly imperfect aspects of nature. We recommend bouquets of wild flowers; sunflowers, daffodils and loose scrubby greenery. For your bridesmaids, loose curls and a beautiful handmade flower crown creates the perfect simple elegance, and makes for a fun day activity with your bridesmaids and flower girls!
This iconic sandstone castle is a versatile space that can cater to grand or intimate functions. Curzon Hall is an ideal destination for every type of wedding event.
