Sarah & Phil

WOW, where do I begin… There is SO much to take in.

Sarah & Phil didn’t have a set theme, they just included EVERYTHING they love including a marquee reception in their back garden, which just oozes a lovely relaxed vibe, not to mention a plethora of DIY decor and entertaining garden games, and it all just works!

There’s dinosaurs to pay homage to their joint love for Jurassic Park, a photo booth, pin the tail on the donkey, pom poms, homemade cakes, wild flowers and SO much more. If you need inspiration and cheering up this Friday afternoon THIS is the wedding for you. Enjoy lovely ones it’s a goodie.

Massive shout out to Schryver Photo too for capturing all this deliciousness for us to feast our eyes upon.

Caroline & Ed

This wedding has it all. Wonderfully classic, gorgeously chic and fabulously rustic. The blue and white colour scheme is utterly divine too, being picked up in the bridesmaids stunning For Her and For Him gowns, not to mention the bloomsey cornflower hydrangeas in the centrepieces, church floral arch and bouquets. It’s no wonder Bride Caroline kept hers so near as you’ll see from all the heartfelt moments captured by Frances Sales Photography.

Also, Caroline in her Ingrida Bridal gown has to be one of the smiliest brides we’ve featured, instantly lifting your spirits and seriously making you re-think your bridal look. Her chic chignon bridal up do with flower crown looks SO beautiful, do you think we could get away with this for everyday?

Daniela & Carlo

In the words of fabulous wedding photographer Samuel Docker “This was a trip and a half!!” I couldn’t agree more. The gorgeous Tuscan views and the stunning Villa Catureglio has literally taken my breath away whilst putting this destination wedding together for you lovely lot. As has Bride Daniela’s customised David Fielden gown. The tulle skirt and embellished bodice look truly magical amongst the greenery and natural beauty, especially when lit by the dreamy sunset.

Also making me mouth a huge sigh is Daniela & Carlo’s gorgeous Golden Retriever. Doesn’t he look dapper in his floral collar and so at ease roaming around during the romantic outdoor ceremony. And if you still need convincing as to whether or not you should include festoon lights at your wedding, this wedding’s gorgeous display will definitely convince you.

Pinning fingers at the ready. You’re not going to want to forget this gorgeous day.

Rhianna & Robbie

It may have been the first day of Spring yesterday but that doesn’t mean we’re not totally in love with the gorgeous Autumnal hues at this rustic barn wedding. The deep red and greenery blooms bring The Barn at Bury Court in Surrey alive and pop against the bridal parties crisp white dresses of dreams. I’m also absolutely smitten with the giant copper foil ‘Good Times’ balloons framing the top table, a sure sign of what was to come at their relaxed boho celebration.

Wait until you see the first look portraits by Miss Gen too, not only are they absolutely adorable but they allowed the couple some quality time together before their ceremony started, it also ensured they could devote themselves to their guests post nuptials, such a lovely idea.

Elena & Øyvind

Have you ever seen anything so beautiful and natural? The Hacienda La Colora olive grove in Southern Spain makes the most beautiful location for this rustic, eco friendly wedding. Making full use of Olive branches and local white flowers to produce a truly incredible and intimate outdoor ceremony and reception with zero waste, and more impressively coming way under budget. Even the bride’s gorgeous lace wedding dress was pre-owned! There’ no denying she looks a million dollars though.

I think photographer Ernesto Villalba is undoubtably going to become my new photography crush with his dreamy way of capturing key moments and gorgeous details. So get yourself comfortable, and prepare to swoon and sigh your way through this delightful day.

Alex & Hesbon

I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this city wedding with you. It is literally a feast for the eyes from start to finish. It has the most adorable family, wearing the most fabulous fashion and is absolutely brimming with the most beautiful blooms.

The forest green, red & white colour scheme looks divine amongst the London transport and underground signs and the hints of gold in the bridesmaids Virgos Lounge gowns adds a touch of Gatsby glamour. As does the classic black tie suits worn by the groomsmen and the heavenly Eliza Jane Howell Clarissa gown and Juliet cap veil worn by bride Alex. Can we also take a moment to appreciate her rose gold Alberto Zago shoes. Oh. My!

With nods to groom Hesbon’s African heritage, lovingly made homemade cakes, a sentimental cake topper and Marie Wootton Wedding Photographer capturing all the love between this beautiful family unit it’s guaranteed to warm the heart and make your Monday much brighter.

Samantha & Christopher

I do love a good proposal story and this wedding tale starts with an incredibly romantic story. It continues with the couples desire to host their wedding ‘at home’ (a place they hold so dear) in a gorgeous PapaKåta sperry tent overlooking Yorkshire, and close to the cutest dis-used church that was once used to Christen bride Samantha.

The theme was, to quote the bride ‘if The White Company did Weddings’ with hints of blush and it’s just beautiful. The mix of roses, hydrangeas and peony blooms within the marquee are simply breathtaking. As is the stylish ‘black tie’ groomsmen attire and Samantha’s dreamy lace Sottero and Midgley Quinlynn gown.

They say, ‘home is where the heart is’ so it’s no wonder Amy shore Photography was able to capture so many beautiful moments between the couple and their family and friends. And if you fancy creating a super stylish and relaxed wedding in a marquee like Samantha & Christopher then you’ll be pleased to know PapaKåta are hosting their Spring open weekend THIS weekend 18th-19th March. Get yourself along and make your wedding dreams come true too.

Sara & Simon

Are you ready to shimmy your way into the weekend? Of course you are. Bride Sarah wore a truly gorgeous gold sequin gown from Gibson Bespoke, setting the tone for this relaxed and incredibly fun wedding in East London perfectly. Then there’s the DIY gold spray painted dinosaur planters and name place settings that not only look amazing on the trestle table in Hoxton Arches but are a nod to the couples wild side.

Get ready to feel the love and the gold with all the fabulousness of this city wedding captured by Christine Wehrmeier Photography.

Dagi & Mats

Breathless” was the soundtrack used to accompany Dagi & Mats’ elegant wedding film and that is exactly how you are going to feel once you have watched the magic captured by Loud Cinematography and swooned over the pictures by Pour Toi Photography.

But it’s no wonder everything was flawless as bride Dagi is a successful fashion, food and wedding blogger. Her dress was a classic strapless lace San Patrick gown fitting her like a glove, with her groom and best girls in equally gorgeous sartorial attire complimenting the Rastatt Residential Palace venue perfectly.

I haven’t even mention the blooms and dessert table yet, but believe me you are not going to want to miss them, all in delicious blush pink & gold tones and all looking unbelievably pretty as well as totally delectable.
