Tabitha & Paul

This morning’s wedding is so SO SO pretty. And I mean super pretty with a capital P. What’s even better though is that Tabitha and Paul designed and styled all of their gorgeous wedding decor by themselves.

When Tabitha spotted the recently refurbished Hastoe Hall complete with high ceilings, original parquet flooring, fire place and vintage fire exit signs she knew she’d found her perfect venue. Fast forward several months, a dollop of amazing festoon lighting, vintage funfair games, typewriters, old ladders and beautiful soda syphons and they had a reception to die for.

Talented photographer Cat Lane Weddings captured all the action. Pinning fingers at the ready!

Tamsin & Alex

Tamsin and Alex are a little bit cool. Actually scrap that, they’re super cool. I mean a bride and groom who performs Pulp Fiction inspired choreography for their first dance has serious style points in my book and we haven’t even gotten started on their Lobster Shack wedding venue in the super pretty Whitstable.

Tamsin looks beautiful in her Alice Temperley frock and colour pop headpiece and Alex looks like a dapper dan in his light blue Suitsupply garb. All the action was captured magnificently by Dale Weeks.

Anthony & Nicholas

Oh I do love a man in tweed, so all the better than when there’s not one but two gorgeous grooms dressed head to toe in the classic look.

Anthony and Nicholas said their ‘I Dos’ in the wonderfully atmospheric venue Asylum before transporting their nearest and dearest in a Gold Regal single-decker to a One Friendly Place to party!

There’s so much to love about this winter wedding, be it the cake toppers (so cute!), the delicious cocktails, the bespoke portraits and the super cool table centres, that I’m off to pin everything. All the action was captured by the very lovely and talented Claire Penn, who comes highly recommended by us.

Angela & David

A bride with an actual cape. Oh my days! It is IMMENSE. You just need to take a minute or two to stop and look at this gorgeous affair with beautiful maids in sequins and a super sartorially hot couple.

Angela and David now live in Oz but they couldn’t resist returning home to London to wed and to celebrate in the city that still remains so close to their hearts. They chose The Rosendale which by coincidence was a local to some of their friends and Angela’s brother and said ‘I DO’ surrounded by twinkly lights and their nearest and dearest.

I just love the chic sophistication of this big day…and their flower girls are very sweet too!

Jen & Tom

Spring weddings come pretty close to my all-time favourite wedding season that of Autumn. There’s something so blissfully romantic about big days held at this time of year both from the symbolic viewpoint of new beginnings but also aesthetically too; I mean how can you resist the pillow soft temptations of pink cherry blossom.

Jen and Tom opted for a low-key city affair marrying first in Camden Town Hall before celebrating tying the knot at the Artisan of Clerkenwell. I love the fact that the duo decided to do a ‘first look’ which their photographer Dale Weeks captured so perfectly on camera.

I also can’t help but mention the official un-official bridesmaids who sound epically cool; Jen will reveal more about them below…

Naomi & Andy

I can’t help but do a little jig whenever I spy a wedding wreath and Naomi and Andy’s gorgeous rose, snapdragon and twiggy affair that adorned the door of their wedding venue at The Hare & Hounds in Bath is no exception.

In fact the jig turned into more of a full scale riotous dance when I spotted that Naomi had chosen to dress her maids in simple ivory tea dresses complete with matching brogues. So unbelievably chic! Much like Naomi’s cable knitted jumper when they ventured out for portrait shots later in the day.

There’s so much to point out and wonder at in this wedding – be it the abbey where the pair got married or Naomi’s delicate floral headpiece or even the contemporary and refined table name pennants that decorated their reception. I’m off to pin…who’s going to join me?

Katie & Mike

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this morning’s wedding was somewhere hot and dreamy like the South of France whereas in fact South Farm is an oasis of calm and rustic goodness near Cambridgeshire.

American gal Katie married her English gentleman Mike against the sunniest backdrop of canary yellow sunflowers and blue accents. Her maids – all Californian girls – wore the best bridesmaid outfits I’ve seen in a while…silken blue jumpsuits accessorised with delicate floral headpieces. Awesome.

This wedding is full of the sweetest details, from the signage dotted about the venue, to the funny prank Katie played on Mike in the ceremony and even the cheeky presents for the ushers. I know you’re just going to love all of it.

Carolyn & David

I know I’ve said it at least three times this year already but this morning’s wedding has to be my absolute favourite wedding of 2016. It is just sublime and already has me seriously considering packing my bags and moving to Sweden.

Carolyn and David decided to get married on David’s grandparents’ farm in Sweden, which has a special place in the couple’s hearts, where they could dance barefoot in the grass until the sun went down. It doesn’t get better than that!

I am in love with the setting, with the festoon lighting and the outdoor rustic reception set up; honestly it’s the stuff of dreams. But it’s Carolyn’s bohemian dress and handpicked florals that are taking my breath away…that and Sara Lejon exquisite photography. Come and let your eyes feast themselves on magic…

Sam & Simon

Autumn weddings always make me smile. Granted they’re always going to occupy a special place in my heart for selfish reasons but I don’t think anyone can deny that florals at this time of year are sublime!

From Café au lait dahlias, hydrangeas, ranunculus’ and chocolate cosmos’ there’s a plethora to choose from…all of which Sam included in her exquisite bouquet made by her florist sister! I particularly love how the colours have been carried through in groom Simon’s accessories and in the colour of the bridesmaid dresses too.

This beautiful duo married at Gate Street Barn in Bramley under huge chandelier candelabras strewn with foliage garlands and fairy lights galore. It’s utterly dreamy.

Lucy of Lucy Davenport Photography captured all the action.
