Botanical Beauty

I absolutely love the gorgeous glasshouses you find in botanical gardens, so it’s always a treat to share a shoot from one of these very places. Todays flower filled inspiration also has some seriously stylish bridal wear and stunning beauty looks too. I have proper hair envy right now, those luscious curls!!!

Images come from Sarah Folega and I love the way the shoot feels fun and contemporary as well as elegant and bridal. Oh, and that bouquet by Paeony Floral Design is just beautiful. The more you look at it, the more you discover…

Natalia & David

There are less than 100 days until Christmas people. I’m sorry to use the C word this early in the year, but this wedding is giving me ALL THE FESTIVE FEELS. The mist, the florals, the tweed, the CHRISTMAS TREE!!!!! Ahhhhhhh it’s just all so magical. Natalia & David chose the amazing Hyde House as their venue, and what a choice…everything looks perfect and I love the fact that the whole wedding party could crash there in the 20 stunning bedrooms. (Shot gun the one with the pink chesterfield).

I’m also loving that they served their stunning cake along with the bubbles and canapes before the wedding breakfast. This is such a good idea! Especially for a Winter wedding where a mid afternoon piece of cake is exactly what the doctor ordered. Enjoy lovelies – but be prepared to get excited for Christmas!!!

Tara & Simon by Marianne Taylor Photography Pin Image

Tara & Simon

I’ve been looking forward to blogging this wedding for a while. There are lots of reasons why I really love it and I’m going to list them all here for you now 😉 Firstly, Marianne Taylor’s gorgeous photography is a real treat to share. There is a real trend at the moment for an overly stylised dark or light edit and I feel like Marianne’s vibe is just really clean, natural and simple. She captures moments as they happen, as they unfold and in a way that results in a perfect documentation of the day. I feel like I’m living Tara and Simon’s intimate at-home wedding just by looking at the images.

The other reason that this wedding is so special is that Tara and Simon had been together for twenty years before they tied the knot! So their day truly felt like a reflection of them. They even held their reception in the grounds of their own home. And finally, the flowers are SO BEAUTIFUL. They are making me long for Spring before Autumn has even properly begun…! Let’s take a look shall we?

Five Ways To Style A Ladder For Your Wedding Day

The humble ladder. All of us know a neglected, paint splattered one, hidden away in the depths of a garage or shed, covered in cobwebs. Your wedding day is the perfect occasion to give him a new lease of life and show him a party to remember. For starters, it’s FREE and if you’re having a rustic wedding, the more rough and ready it is, the better. And on the other hand, it can easily be sanded and painted to create a more elegant look. Here are five gorgeous and ingenious ways we’ve seen ladders styled for your big day…

Catherine and David’s wedding is just gorgeous in every way. From Catherine’s stylish bridal attire by Emma Beaumont, to the decor, to the food, every element is done well. The pair kept things really simple and clean, with lots of foliage and fairy lights, which is always the best way to enhance an already lovely space. It’s rustic, but it’s also elegant and it’s very, very RMW. Images come from the lovely Paul & Kelly at Paul Joseph Photography. Enjoy gorgeous ones!
