A Wedding With No Flowers? Yep, and it's Awesome!

BY The WMG Bride | 15 Mar, 2016 | 3469 views | 3 min read

There are some weddings that are extremely unconventional, some highly amusing and some, clearly years ahead. This is one such wedding that we chanced upon as we carefully thumbed through Bangalore decorator With Love Nilma★ 5 Instagram account. She tells us that the brief to her by this Australian - Banglorean couple was "No flowers, more natural, very eco-friendly and lots of greens". So taking up this challenge,With Love Nilma★ 5 , the decorator created a vintage, rustic look for the wedding that took us from okay to gasp in minutes. We took a look and got some much-needed inspiration - how about you peek in? 937_780063778792051_7839174070273512628_n 6421_780063258792103_8529373733264710836_n 1044357_780063402125422_3172608597630574688_n 1044828_780063452125417_2513364225649821870_n 1184778_780063845458711_3558641155107742053_n 1913526_780063525458743_8929371659722531181_n 10173721_780063185458777_1722446370293497157_n9198_780063588792070_2828929725321188851_n 8241_780063675458728_7367285694897532855_n10245333_780063302125432_4718727410258535291_n 10313092_780063192125443_8666432307878284388_n1917648_780063605458735_3682523350179101842_n 1918298_780063718792057_2946498592289377846_n10355893_780063475458748_5930501503517733215_n 10360687_780063668792062_8795741599449562880_n10710751_780063842125378_2623106448383962297_n 11988662_780063345458761_5600779908797873260_n 12188880_780063362125426_654693288821556458_n 12670388_780063848792044_536554764143504149_n 12798955_780063295458766_90590692684887481_n 12809614_780063312125431_4073090873971660266_n 12814017_780063665458729_651864110426752156_n 12814070_780063175458778_7715468702102234885_n 12814725_780063545458741_4788448181641669884_n 12821529_780063235458772_2332598343571889661_n 12832473_780063145458781_1203731077473963112_n The colour palette was quite obvious: green, white and brown/ earthy and warm tones came in highly recommended. Burlap was used big time along with interesting little herbs. The ideas at the venue:
  • A wheelbarrow with herbs wrapped in burlap
  • Handmade crates with herbs picked from a nursery wrapped in burlap and jute rope
  • An old whiskey barrel cut in half where an orange tree was potted in
  • A ladder with photographs of the family
  • A chalkboard with the bride's favourite quote by Bernard Shaw
  • The seating chart alongside a handmade planter
  • Wooden letters of the bride and grooms family names on the table
  • Herbs planted in pretty white planters
  • A beautiful parasol + an old bicycle painted white makes a pretty picture
  • A wishing jar for the guests to leave a message for the newly weds
  • Burlap table runner tied at the end with a jute rope, rosemary and lavender
  • Vintage mirror along with a chest of drawers with yellow lemons and basil leaves popping out
  • A yellow lemon with basil leaves rolling out of a mason jar filled with lace
Do check out the beautiful bright blossoming orange tree sitting pretty at the venue. Nice addition, we'd say! The crates were made in her studio and the herbs were picked up from a local nursery and wrapped them in burlap and jute. A barrel was cut in half, filled with hay and a few green apples tossed in it along with a milk can was a great attraction. The centerpieces on the table were made of wooden tree trunks Nilma found in the timber yard along with glass jars filled with lemon grass, basil, mint leaves, chives amongst other herbs. Lavender and Thyme were added to pretti-fy the places. And the best thing was the giveaways: wine bottles from Sula.  Location: J W Mariott, BengaluruDecorator: With Love Nilma★ 5
