Look at that sky! You know when you go on holiday for a while and then you come home and are reminded just how beautiful the UK is. Well these images by Photography34 have had that effect on me… If ever there was a perfect day for an outdoor celebration then this is it. Abby and Andy must have been over the moon.
With a Stephanie Allin dress, stunning natural wood marquee and exquisite DIY florals there is something here for everyone. Did I mention the brass band?…
Roseanne and Darren’s simple but oh-so-beautiful wedding is the perfect way to begin a week of wedding inspiration.
The colour scheme of pale pink and blue is subtle and pretty. The decor is minimal, allowing the venue, Cripps Barn, to shine – the focus is all on fresh flowers and candle light. And that’s all you really need lovelies. It’s definitely my kind of wedding.
I love that Roseanne chose to wear a veil too – I’m a sucker for tradition. Her Pronovias gown fits her perfectly and she looks every inch the blushing Bride.
Today’s images from John Hope are so full of romance and emotion. There are endless stunning couple shots. I can completely see why Roseanne is so thrilled with the photos – her and Darren’s love for each other spills out from them.
I’m not even sure I know where to begin with Keith and Hannah’s big day.
Do I start with Hannah’s oh-so-light-as-a-feather-yet-perfectly-bohemian flower crown or with their voluminous hydrangea floral arch at the end of their hay bale aisle?
Perhaps I’ll begin with the adorable flower girls who just exude personality or the sassy bridesmaids (I need their dresses in my life!). Actually I might just kick off with the beautiful wildflower arrangements and the motorbike and the portraits in the meadow and the super-fly Granny who totally rocks Hannah and Keith’s festival wristband favour.
Actually you know what…I’m just going to let you lovelies experience this heart-warming, life-affirming, hearty big day for yourselves.
It is immense.
Tide times dictated the date for Zoë & James’ big day. The couple chose to hold their wedding on the banks of the estuary at Salcombe – so the timing of the water was key in creating the beautiful backdrop they wanted.
Boat trips, an American Deep South inspired sharing menu, golden wheat fields and lots of blowsy blooms in whites & blues made for a day that looked so pretty AND like such fun.
By marrying James, Zoë inherited a Mother-in-Law who used to own a Bridal Boutique – this meant that she could save on the dress and buy a lovely pair of Louboutins instead.
Zoë also accessorised with a pretty veil from the wonderful What Katy Did Next.
Shooting a wedding on film ALWAYS creates a beautiful, dream-like quality to the images. Weddings shot on film by Peachey Photography? Well they are EXTRA special.
Dickie is Scottish and works in advertising. Annie wore a 50s style gown. The couple married at Annie’s parents house in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. So naturally, the theme was Scotland meets Mad Men meets English Country Fete. It worked a treat too.
Annie’s parents genuinely put their hearts and souls into preparing the garden for their daughters wedding – they had the garden landscaped, grew flowers from seed and even built the summerhouse where the ceremony was held! They did an excellent job, I’m sure you’ll agree.
And if you’ve just come along for a gander at a man in a kilt – you’re in for a treat. Dickie is sporting some very fetching Douglas tartan.
Amy and Andy certainly know how to throw a party. And throw a party they did – more specifically a big day that embraced a fusion of Welsh and Greek Cypriot wedding traditions and I have a feeling that you’re going to love it!
Personally I have a lot of love for this wedding. Amy’s exquisite lace Claire Pettibone wedding gown? Yep love that! The luscious colour pop bouquet? Adore that! The floral pitchers used for the table centrepieces? Absolutely need those in my life! And let’s not forget the epic dancing at the end – those guests have ALL the moves!
Lastly don’t you think that Amy’s dad looks as proud as punch walking her down the aisle.
