Mona & Andy

Mona and Andy’s homespun barn wedding is just so lovely. The couple began their wedding planning by deciding what they wanted their day to ‘say’ which I think is a fantastic way to really map out how your want your wedding to be. If every decision comes back to that idea you’re trying to portray, then you’ll end up with a day that’s personal and full of joy, just like Mona and Andy.

The pair knew they wanted gorgeous photographs, so Frances Sales was at the top of their list. Her images are always so natural and really showcase the emotion of the day as it unfolds. If you’re after a cosy and personal barn wedding, then I think you’re going to love this one…

Sophie & Sam

The more weddings I see from The West Mill Derby, the more I fall in love with the place! The exposed brick, the Georgian paned windows and the gorgeous outside courtyard space make every single angle the perfect backdrop to your wedding photographs.

Today we’re sharing Sophie and Sam’s industrial but oh-so-stylish wedding day which is styled to perfection. There’s the perfect amount of sparkle from Sophie’s beaded Eliza Jane Howell gown and an extra addition of cute in the form of their little boy – anyone who is having lots of children at their wedding needs to read about the goodie bags they put together for the littles at this wedding, such lucky children.

The lovely images come from Han and Toby at Red On Blonde, whose weddings are always a pleasure to share…

If you haven’t come across Glitzy Secrets before, than allow me to introduce you. They are an award winning online boutique specialising in vintage-inspired jewellery and hair accessories for weddings and special occasions.

Sarah & Stuart

Now isn’t this fabulous. A weekend long celebration with family and friends from all over the country, enjoying the stunning Georgian house and grounds of Kingston Estate in Devon.

It’s lovely when the sun is shining, it means couples can take full advantage of the outside, having ceremonies under Pagoda’s, speeches on the terrace and star filled first dances in the courtyard. Creating some truly magical moments and pictures captured by Story and Colour.

The bright fashion and flowers are utterly immense too, guaranteed to make you smile and swoon with pure delight. Sarah’s Eliza Jane Howell ‘Jayne’ gown in particular is just heavenly, and I love that she changed her look after the ceremony by removing her veil and adding a delicate flower crown. Such a pretty classic country wedding.

Karen & Richard

Is there anything more inviting than a cosy pub on a cold, dark Winter’s evening?! Personally I don’t think so! And Karen and Richard clearly agree as they held their Winter Wedding reception in The Peasant Clerkenwell and filled with sparkly lights and candles it just looks so welcoming.

This is a wedding filled with glitz too, Eliza Jane Howell really is the go-to designer for gowns that just ooze Vintage inspired glamour, and Karen’s gown is no exception – the ‘Eliza’ has our eyes twinkling! We’re also big fans of the sage green Virgos Lounge Bridesmaids dresses, also with a rather lovely dose of embellishment!

Karen’s make up artist Laura Anne is one of our recommended suppliers, and she gave Karen a genius tip for wedding day make up, you’ll have to read on to find out what it was. But that shouldn’t be difficult as I LOVED reading Karen’s write up, it made me laugh out loud and I totally want to go and get cronuts and coffee with her now…

Kate & James

This wedding is just brimming with gorgeous details, but you’d expect nothing less when the Bride is an art teacher! Kate & James drew influence for their wedding style from a trip to Morocco, and then Kate pulled it all together to create colourful and intricate table centrepieces, signage and favours. The resulting look is just gorgeous.

If you’re having dress wobbles, make sure you read about Kate’s decision over her gown, as it will probably ring true with lots of people and make sure you look out for the confetti too – made from roses that James has given Kate over the years! How unbelievably romantic is that?

Photography comes from Marie Wooton, whose relaxed, creative style we just love. (She also captured this fabulous marquee wedding which we all loved – have nose once you’ve enjoyed Kate & James’ big day)…

Laura & John

Ok so we’re half way through the year already and although we don’t want Winter to make an appearance just yet, this morning’s wedding does a very good job of wanting us to snuggle up next to our loved ones and a cosy crackling fire.

Laura and John married in the depths of winter with snow on the ground against the backdrop of twinkling lights and Christmas trees (honestly check out that photo at the very end of the sliding images here; I’d have that one blown up for all to see) and it is a corker.

I love the fact that Laura didn’t opt for a traditional white frock for her 1920s inspired big day; instead she went for full on beaded opulence which just shimmers against the frosty landscape and sparkling lights. Oh and the floral arch? DIVINE!

Jayne & Andrew

You will be forgiven for thinking you’ve been transported back in time to the roaring 20s when you see this elegant Great Gatsby inspired wedding. The beautifully captured black & white images by Matthew Long Photography make you feel like you are viewing a romantic silent movie.

The commitment to the theme really shines through in all the details and decor, none more evident than the fabulous attire the wedding party is adorning. Suave tuxedos and decadent gowns complete with vintage hair and makeup make for one glamorous wedding party.

The array of showstopping art deco cakes are also pretty spectacular, note the plural as there was not one amazing creation but several, each one as mesmerising as the next. What a truly amazing treat for all the guest to indulge into; and all made by the super talented Bride her self.

Wish Upon A Star

This weekend’s inspiration shoot is just brimming with gorgeous hair and make up ideas, delicious gowns and pretty accessories. If you’re a Bride looking for a lace or embellished gown, you’ll love the selection from Lusan Mandongus and Eliza Jane Howell chosen by The Wedding Room.

There are also two very different make up looks, a soft romantic smokey eye and nude lip…then a black-lined eye with a colour pop lip. Both equally pretty and both perfect for your wedding day. Normally I’d be in the smokey eye and nude lip camp, but that shade of fuchsia really is rather striking…
