How To Stylishly Theme Your Wedding Day With Animal Motifs

One of the enduring trends that has featured so heavily in the beautiful weddings we’ve showcased on the blog this year has been that of animals. Piles upon piles of exquisitely styled animals – from woodland rabbits and stags through to more exotic creatures such as flamingos and lions. And it’s a trend that looks set to continue into 2017 too.

Katie & Alistair

How utterly exquisite is the image of this morning’s beautiful maids dressed in blue with equally delicious pastel florals at the top?! Isn’t it wonderful!

I am in love with every single aspect of Katie and Alistair’s rustic farmyard wedding held at Brick House Farm that it’s impossible to know what to tell you about first. Let’s start though with Katie’s gorgeous gown – the Stacey by Modeca – which has tonnes of frothy, gorgeous, lace amazingness complete with blush pink bow. I know! Immense.

And then there’s the piles of hydrangea, the baby blue dining candles, the oversized balloons, the trestle tables and rustic buttonholes and the chintzy hay bales. It’s pastoral heaven.

All the action was snapped by the wonderful Frances Sales.

Cara & Rich

You have GOT to see the flowers in today’s decadently Autumnal wedding! I mean quick, start swiping through the amazing slider of beautiful images if you haven’t already to cast your eyes on some truly glorious centrepieces and one magnificent bouquet.

Cara and Rich decided to tie the knot at East Riddlesden Hall in Yorkshire accompanied by lashings of seasonal blooms, some seriously contemporary black and white striped decor and layers of festoon lighting.

I adore Cara’s heavenly smokey eyes, her mismatched bridesmaids and her rustic decor which is imbued with charm just like Cara and Rich themselves. All the fun and games and those beautiful sunlit portrait shots were captured by Photography34.

Ella & Tom

I’ve been lucky enough to attend an event at Kensington Roof Gardens in the past and can attest to its gloriousness so it’s easy to see why Ella and Tom picked it for their wedding day. Despite the amazing views, it’s easy to forget that you’re in a capital city once you set foot in this urban oasis. And yes there are ACTUAL flamingos.

The pair decided to celebrate their nuptials by paying homage to the venue itself choosing an art deco twist for their decor and using little accents of pink to tie in with the resident flamingos. Cute!! All the action was captured by Fiona Kelly Photography.

Zoe & Nathan

Zoe and Nathan are possibly one of the chicest couples whose wedding day I’ve ever had the pleasure of blogging. Everything is utterly elegant, from their exquisite wedding cake, to Zoe’s fishtail Pronovias lace frock and her savvy maids. The pair said I do in January starting the brand new year off with a bang as sparkly new Mr & Mrs at the iconic ICA in the centre of London.

I’m more than a little bit jealous since groom Nathan is a shoe designer so he willingly took Zoe to Manolo Blahnik to look for her wedding shoes! What a dreamboat! I’m not going to say too much more but instead will let the pictures, taken by David Jenkins do all the talking…

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!
