Country Refinement

This morning’s inspiration shoot comes from two fabulous wedding suppliers from our handpicked directory The Love Lust List. Both Hollie from Daisy Says I Do and Esther from Flower Style Co. are very talented ladies and the styling and flowers in this shoot are just gorgeous.

The country refinement theme is perfect for Cotswolds wedding venue, The Barn at Upcote. I don’t think I can think of a place in the UK that suits the theme more!

Sarah & Richie

Serious flower envy alert!

I absolutely adore the use of coral peonies by Honeysuckle Flower Co.. They have literally taken my breath away they are so immense. The bouquets, the flower crowns and floral centrepieces bring such a vibrancy to the vintage china tea cups, mis-match blue bridesmaid dresses and gorgeous Cripps Barn wedding venue.

The whole fantastically bohemian vintage tea party concept is an explosion of colour and fun. With quirky details including rose gold spray painted animals as place settings and a polaroid picture station. All the details are delicious, but it’s no wonder when Bride Sarah is a ridiculously creative art teacher.

She is also stunningly beautiful in her Watters Emerson bridal gown from Coco & Kate Boutique. The diamond lace detail on the strapless gown is so pretty. As are her pink Irregular Choice shoes.

This wedding is such a feast for the eyes, captured beautifully by Lovestruck Photography and Lara Elliott Films. Shall we take a look…?

The Love Lust List | Papier

There is no denying the entire team at Rock My Ltd adore Papier. There hasn’t been a recent meeting where one of their gorgeous notebooks hasn’t been pulled from a handbag, and invites to family parties are often from Papier’s carefully curated collection. It gives us no greater pleasure than populating our handpicked wedding supplier directory, The Love Lust List, with the very best the industry has to offer and Papier is a very, very welcome addition. If you’re looking for stunning wedding stationery, or even just a gorgeous notebook to adorn your desk, and keep those wedding notes in, we’re fairly certain you won’t be disapointed.

Charlotte & Dilip

We’ve got a truly elegant wedding for you this morning, from the Groom’s old school Christ’s Hospital, which makes a magical wedding venue and must have evoked lots of fun memories for him. Bride Charlotte is a fashion designer, so you just know that the decor and dresses are going to be fabulous, and true to form, she looks absolutely gorgeous in Mira Zwillinger. Her Bridesmaids wore dresses designed by her too.

I always love all-white wedding flowers, it’s such a classic look, but Charlotte & Dilip have made their styling look fresh with metallic details, perspex signs and lots of candles. Enjoy this one lovelies, it’s chic and sophisticated from start to finish…

Sarah & Samuel

I love the decor in this afternoon’s wedding. Sarah has Iraqi heritage and Sam is an Environmentalist, so they went with a total mish-mash of influences when it came to the styling. Colourful wild flowers in glass bottles, illustrations of birds, metallic tealights and Moroccan lanterns just look totally gorgeous in the rustic barns at Wedderburn Castle (which FYI contains endless amazing backdrops for photographs, as you’ll see…)

I’m also loving Sarah’s make up, she looks totally flawless and her eyebrow game is strong – Anna Millington is a talented lady.

Images come from Emma at Fairytale Asylum, who has captured the emotions of the day beautifully, so many proud smiles, loving looks and happy faces.

Why Having A Wedding Gift List Is A Good Idea…

When it comes to choosing whether or not to have a Wedding List, one of the first thing people worry about is asking guests for presents. It feels like it goes against our code of Britishness. But we’re here to tell you that on your wedding day, it’s totally allowed. In fact, guests prefer to know what you’d like. People love to buy gifts for the newlyweds – to help you set up your home together, help you with projects like decorating your bathroom, or contributing to your honeymoon fund. Here’s some interesting stats from our exclusive Gift List partner, The Wedding Shop, to help put your mind at ease over choosing your wedding list…

Abi & Rob

I can’t even begin to imagine how serene and lovely it must have been for this gorgeous couple to marry on the beach in Koh Samui, Thailand. Especially as it holds so many sentimental memories of their time dating.

The aisle and altar leading to the beach ceremony is utterly gorgeous. Draped in crisp white fabric, white orchid garlands and a dream catcher. With many more gorgeous details and decor cropping up around the Faraway Wedding Villa adding personal touches.

Now lets talk about Abi’s Grace Loves Lace Sally gown. What a stunner she and the gown are. I love the off the shoulder detail, it must have been so easy to wear in the tropical sun. Her boho bridal look was finished off beautifully with a vine headdress and the prettiest barefoot sandals.

Claudia Rose Carter has captured all the loveliness, as well as my favourite image of groom Rob kissing Bride Abi on the shoulder during the speeches at the outdoor wedding breakfast. I may have actually cried when I saw that pic it was SO adorable.

Hannah & Tom

How cute are Hannah and Tom? They just look happy and ridiculously in love, the joy radiates from these images by Kristian Lissimore. The sensible pair stuck firmly to their budget and did lots of DIY projects to ensure that one day they get to fulfil their dream – travelling the world together as a couple.

When all is said and done, it’s your wedding – so if you want to blow your budget go right ahead, but equally, having a modest wedding so that you can buy a house or travel the world together is a really lovely idea. And Hannah and Tom’s big day shows that you don’t have to compromise on style, it’s about choosing which areas to spend your budget on…

Holly & Neil

Holly and Neil’s destination wedding really proves that the only things you need to have a wonderful wedding are a great venue, good food and each other. And a wonderful photographer to capture it all of course. Jason Mark Harris always does a stellar job, whether he’s shooting at home in the UK, or at destination weddings across the world.

I feel I should warn you that this wedding may well make you want to pack your bags and head to Santorini – the warm golden sunlight is very appealing right now…enjoy everyone, Holly’s words on planning a destination wedding are really helpful too!
