Katie & Peter

We’ve got possibly the most perfect wedding for you to finish the week on this morning. Honestly folks it’s a corker from Love Lust List member Tub Of Jelly Photography who incidentally also doubled up as the videographer for Katie and Pete when they married at The Dead Dolls Club in London last year.

Katie wore a super glitzy, gold and silver sequin frock for her big day and totally OWNED it. She paired it up with a beautiful floral crown and a bevy of maids in white. Hubby Pete scrubbed up well too with a navy suit from Reiss accompanied by the rest of his boys in blue against a backdrop of confetti filled balloons and the sweetest flower girls and page boys.

If you’ve got a few spare minutes then I implore you to watch the video of this achingly hip duo because it totally captures the essence of the day and is as Katie says for them at least ‘by miles the most valuable part of the wedding (spends) especially in this digital age’.

Kate & Ross

*Blue sky alert*

This morning’s wedding has some of the bluest skies that I’ve seen in a long long time. Combine this with the daytime fairground entertainment that Kate and Ross provided for their guests on their wedding day and you’re onto a sure fire winner. And a winner it was! From Kate’s exquisite Essence of Australia frock to Ross’s bespoke suit and to the gorgeous bridesmaids’ dresses from Needle & Thread, every bit of this wedding is heartfelt and romantic and elegant.

You’re going to love it.

Louise & Graham

I’ve long been a fan of Holly from Belle and Beau Photography work – she manages to capture the most beautifully lit images in a completely natural way – and Louise and Graham’s wedding day is no exception.

I’ve fallen head over heels for this elegant strawberry ice-cream palette of a wedding complete with the prettiest bridesmaids dresses I’ve seen all year (the lace! the back detail!), the most EPIC bouquet and a table plan to swoon over. Yep I can guarantee that you’re going to pin that one!

Honestly though just take a look at this gorgeous couple’s portrait session – they are so lovingly at ease with one another that it makes me smile like a loon. Oh and you might just catch a glimpse of Louise’s amazing ring – it’s definitely been added to my covet list anyway.

Tabitha & Spencer

I think this is quite possibly the first wedding I’ve blogged that has had both a tea parlour and a tequila tent. Yep now you’re intrigued aren’t you but I’ll let this morning’s bride tell you more about that. And the libations are not the only wonderful thing about this wedding.

Tabitha and Spencer enlisted the help of Pocketful of Dreams to plan their big day which included two bridal gowns, pink wedding shoes, a colour scheme that included colour-pop fuschia, navy and all out glitter, a bit of Savile Row tailoring, a father of the bride who was also the drummer in the evening entertainment, a hand-tying ceremony, a hand-built wedding arbour, a gigantic bouquet and a real feast of a wedding breakfast.

Phew! What a wonderful glorious mix! Come and take a look…

Gillian & Brian

There is some seriously sexy atmospheric goodness going on in this morning’s wedding. So gorgeously dreamy that even Cathy and Heathcliff would be a tad jealous of this smouldering pair captured by Christopher Currie Photography.

Gillian and Brian married at the end of last year, on New Year’s Eve Eve, under a canopy of twinkling lights at the rustic heaven that is Kinkell Byre. There are tweed suits (always guaranteed to make me go weak at the knees), quirky centrepieces, a smattering of pink, pastel rose bouquets and a whole heap of DIY goodness. Please do take the time to peek at the gallery – there are so many ideas to steal for your own big days.

And the matching ‘I love him’ and ‘I love her’ tattoos are the sweetest!

Jenny & Chris

‘Don’t sweat the small stuff… if you’re married at the end of the day then it’s been an enormous success.’

Sage advice there from the beautiful Jenny in this morning’s chic city affair. I couldn’t not open with this mantra because I think it’s all too easy to forget amidst the madness of colour themes and dresses and table plans and favours and centrepieces. That’s not to say that all of these bits and pieces aren’t important but more that it’s about you and your partner and the love you have for each other that’s paramount on your big day.

But of course you all know this already. What you don’t know yet is how epic Jenny and Chris’ big day was…but you’re about to find out.

I can promise you the sweetest dress, the most besotted groom, the smiliest bridesmaids, some awesome photography and one of the chicest cakes I’ve seen in a while. I think you’ll love it all!

Israa & Olivier

Sharing a birthday month with this morning’s beautiful bride Israa, as well as a love for Venice, meant that I felt an affinity with her as soon as I started reading about her amazing Spring wedding at Northbrook Park. But it was her practical, no-nonsense approach to her wedding day that really cemented things for me – in particular her remark ‘Just because you are doing something quickly, does not mean you have to compromise.’

Israa married Olivier at the exquisite Northbrook Park on a sunny Spring day surrounded by people they loved, planning her wedding in a record six weeks. Yep SIX weeks! Fate decreed that the only date that their chosen venue was free was the day they met the year before; how romantic is that! And it’s clear that Israa took the whole thing in her stride; the day is full of wonderful details and bucketloads of love; I just know you’ll adore it as much as I do!

Susie & Robert

I love a good international love story and Rob and Susie’s round the world romance is no exception. Meeting in Australia, getting engaged in Barcelona and then marrying in Wales is definitely one way to get in all the sights.

Susie’s Suzanne Neville frock is beautiful,fits her like a glove and looks positively dreamy amongst the woods at Tros Yr Afon. I love the fact that she chose to incorporate some of Rob’s grandma’s hairpins into her do on her big day – such a beautiful touch.

And a first dance to Let’s Get It On? Genius!

Marianne & Neil

I feel I have to warn you in advance, that this morning’s wedding contains the prettiest, pinkest rose bouquet that I have ever seen. There is also the most exquisite Jenny Packham dress, Jimmy Choo shoes and the sweetest flower girls I’ve seen. Get your pinning fingers at the ready folks.

There are balloons and cupcakes, dessert tables and gypsophila, men in dashing blue suits and beautiful beachy portrait shots. I am in love.

I think Marianne sums it up best when she says that she didn’t have a theme per se just that everything ended up being ‘pretty’ and it is. Gloriously, wholeheartedly and unashamedly pretty.
