Country Pub Style Wedding

A country pub wedding in Devon

A palette of soft shades and characterful touches bring a relaxed romance to the picturesque setting of a Devon village pub


There’s a lot to love about Devon – and its country pubs are up there with its rolling hills, dramatic coastline and Tor-speckled moorland. Nestled amongst the Tudor cobbles of the chocolate-box village of Sandford, you’ll find The Lamb Inn – a fine example of a Devon country pub. The sense of easy charm and rich character is palpable in the 16th century coaching house, from its low ceilings and crackling log fires to its sink-into-me sofas and sheltered garden. Complete with an award-winning restaurant and luxurious boutique-style accommodation, it is a cosy and memorable setting for an intimate wedding, where the laidback draw of a country celebration meets fine food and luxe touches.

Lending itself to a beautifully individual wedding, this styled shoot blends rustic styling with bespoke details, from handwritten place settings to personalised soap favours. A palette of dusky pink, taupe and green bring a soft natural aesthetic to the celebration space, the semi-naked drip cake echoing the shades in deliciously trending style. The fresh-from-the-hedgerow flowers and pottery imprinted with botanicals serve as a nod to the surrounding landscape, while vintage elements, such as a typewriter and gramophone dressed with flowers, enhance the timeless, eclectic mood of the setting. The groom embodies the rustic theme in idiosyncratic style, while the bride dons a dried flower crown and a series of whimsical dresses – a relaxed yet standout look, perfect for revelling in the romance of a country village wedding.
