Louisa and Emma held a Burns Supper for their wedding day celebrations. If you’re not aware of what a Burns Supper is, it involves reading poems to a haggis, eating said haggis and drinking lots and lots of scotch. I’m sure that’s the official definition*
Burn’s Night is basically just a proper knees up, in honour of great Scottish Poet, Robert Burns. Scotland has a special place in Louisa and Emma’s hearts, as it’s where they got engaged.
But just because the lovely ladies held a proper party – doesn’t mean they overlooked the pretty details. I’m swooning over the dusky pink and sage green Bridesmaids dresses, the elegant table dressing and the beautiful, beautiful cake.
*Hmmmmm, maybe not so official…
Louise and Oli’s wedding is just so full of summer fun – it’s the perfect wedding to bring you on a Monday morning. There’s a bouncy castle, space hoppers, a candy floss machine AND a Mr Whippy ice cream van!!
It’s a real family affair too…the gorgeous couple held their reception in a tipi at their home and incorporated their little girl’s Christening into their big day as well. Which I think is such a lovely idea.
There are so many pretty decor touches too – I love the chalk board table plan, the flowers in milk churns and the silver candelabras adorned with flowers and elegant ivory candles.
And if you’re looking for sparkly Bridesmaids dress inspiration then Louise’s choice of gown for her girls will definitely give you a touch of the green eyed monsters…
There’s something infinity calming about a blue colour scheme at a wedding especially when it’s set amongst a beautiful countryside setting like that of Ross and Nikki’s big day. The pair spent precious hours carefully folding one thousand origami cranes which they later hung in the marquee as part of their wedding decor. Time well spent in my opinion as the finished result looks fantastic!
Looking at Nikki’s beautiful bridal gown you’d never know that she struggled to find her perfect dress. It’s quite clear that the pleated, floaty light creation she chose from Theia was waiting for her all along.
And her bouquet of creamy peonies and roses? Yep I could bury my nose in that all day long.
Josie and Jonny are just so cute. There are just so many images of the pair looking loved up that it’ll make your heart melt. I particularly love the shot of their feet while they are canoodling in the shed!!
They served guests the most scrumptious high tea I’ve seen for a while too, in the prettiest array of vintage china.
I do love a good teapot and there are some absolute beauties in this wedding.
All of the hanging paper birds and hearts, the jam jar toppers and the little bird place names were made by Josie from pages of books, which creates such a lovely effect.
Josie also put together all of the flowers for the big day and I think you’ll agree she did an excellent job – I love her colourful bouquet, which is finished off perfectly with a mustard yellow ribbon.
Oh I do love barn weddings. Especially ones in the Cotswolds with pretty vintage details, bundles of gypsophila and mismatched Bridesmaids.
And this one is full of so many lovely details – I just know you’re going to love it.
Nat and Nick made sure that their own Cotswolds wedding had a special twist. Nat is half Brazilian so the pair included lots of Brazilian wedding traditions in their big day.
Including drinking lots of caipirinhas…with the World Cup on it’s way, I keep seeing these everywhere and am ashamed to say that they are actually one of the (few) cocktails I haven’t tried. They sound delicious though…cachaça, sugar and lime – the perfect refreshing drink for a summers day.
Mary and Dan’s seaside wedding is the perfect wedding for a Friday morning. Relaxed, fun and full of happy, smiley people.
Being a West Country boy, Dan wanted to get married in Devon and the lovely pair chose Tunnels Beaches as their venue.
It looks amazing – there’s a private beach, you can have your ceremony on the terrace overlooking the ocean and Mary and Dan lucked out with a glorious sunset while their guests began to dance the night away.
I love Mary’s candy coloured bouquet and her red lip and nails combo – both add a wonderful sense of fun to the day, as does Dan’s baby blue suit and trendy brogues.
This afternoon’s inspiration shoot is brimming with pretty gowns and florals, and if you’re not already holding your ceremony outside…it may well make you wish that you were!
Styled by Sweet Dream Events, this romantic and dreamy shoot showcases some of the magical and idyllic locations managed by new venue company – Cottonwood Weddings. They specialise in outdoor weddings in the New Forest. And by the looks of the shoot, already have some fabulous go-to suppliers.
As far as I’m concerned, any floral display that uses blackberries is a total winner – so I’m in LOVE with the bouquet and table centre piece you see below.
If you were to imagine the perfect country-fete inspired, marquee wedding in rural North Yorkshire – then it would DEFINITELY look like Vicki and Alex’s big day!!
Floral crowns, bunting, beautiful wild blooms in jam jars…hanging from shepherds crooks…over the doorway to the church…honestly, if you’re after a similar look, this wedding executes it to perfection.
Vicki, Alex and all of their family and friends just look so relaxed and happy. There are children playing, people dancing and laughing, and the older generation gazing on wisely as the day unfolds.
I promise that even just looking at the images from Andy Gaines will make you feel all warm inside and put a lovely big smile on your face.
This week seems to have flown past and we’ve got ANOTHER bank holiday this weekend! Hooray!! I do hope you are all either getting married, attending a wedding or devoting the time off work to planning! Isn’t May just the best month?
This morning’s wedding is a very pretty, home spun affair. Lauren & (Bradley Cooper’s long lost brother)* Ross were lucky enough to marry at the church Lauren had attended as a child with school.
It literally looks like THE most idyllic English countryside location and the sun shone down on them for the whole day.
Their reception was held at Lauren’s parents beautiful farm house. Again, idyllic English countryside springs to mind.
Yellow is a colour that I absolutely love – the gorgeous pale yellow hue of Lauren’s maids gowns is so pretty and the sunshine yellow daisies and tulips couldn’t be more perfect for a summer wedding.
I love how Lauren’s Blue by Enzoani gown falls too, creating the most beautiful silhouette and the addition of a slightly boho headband keeps her look relaxed enough to match the day. And what a wonderful day it looked…
* I can’t be sure that Ross is ACTUALLY Bradley Coopers brother…but lets just go with it.
My oh my have we got a treat in store for you lovelies this afternoon. Oh it’s a real stunner of a wedding even if I do say so myself. There are also details galore so if you’re a teepee loving, bohemian inspired, calligraphy lusting, rustic kinda boy or gal then you’re probably going to want to get your pinning fingers at the ready.
Before I go too much further can we all take a moment to appreciate Mary’s off-the-shoulder lacy dress from Daughters Of Simone. Oh man! It is heavenly and possibly the most perfect piece of frockage for a rustic Teepee wedding. And Ben doesn’t scrub up too badly either in his tweed and blue three-piece complete with perfectly pink tie.
Frankly there are many things I could wax lyrical about in this big day, the beautiful mismatched maids for example or the cutesy wedding favours or the handmade order of service but I figured you’d just want to take a look for yourselves…
