Lily and Ben’s intimate family wedding at Aswarby Rectory in Lincolnshire is full of so much joy, love and laughter, not to mention a killer Enzoani wedding dress. The capture of Lily weaving through her guests in her gorgeous gown and sunglasses beaming is one of my absolute favourite pictures by Rosie Kelly Photography. She’s so elated, as you would be, and her joy just radiates through. The rest of the wedding is a knockout too, complete with beer bong garden game, smoke bombs and amazing green and white wedding flowers decorating the home from home, country house wedding venue.
This gorgeous humanist wedding took place in a massive open field in the South Wales Valleys, with picturesque views of Cardiff and the Bristol Chanel in the distance. Filling their marquee reception with the prettiest rustic details and foliage to resemble the chic Italian Riviera. And my does it look pretty. Wait until you see the aisle arch and sharing platters.
You would never know from the pictures captured by Rachel Lambert Photography that it rained moments before the ceremony started, especially after viewing all the gorgeous portrait shots of the Bride & Groom in the woods with blue skies, fluffy white clouds and lush greenery as their backdrop.
I love, love, love Laurie’s bridal look. From her beaded lace Enzoani gown with illusion neckline to her bespoke cuff and headpiece. She just looks absolutely stunning. As do her bridesmaids in fabulous twobirds platinum gowns. Plus her Choo’s. Not jealous, not jealous at all.
This gorgeous wedding culminates in a live band, fireworks and lots of sparklers, and a couple full of love sealing their family bond by having the time of their lives.
Get prepared to views some seriously cool squad girl pictures captured by Ellie Gillard of Bride Hollie & her bridesmaids strutting their stuff around the urban streets, hopping on buses & applying lippy. I want to join them now, especially if it means I get to don a flower crown as fabulous as theirs.
I’d also like to hang out at Brixton East. Such a cool urban warehouse venue and the fact that it’s filled with Smeg’s, sequins and glitter makes it even more appealing.
SO much love for this fun winter wedding. Pinning fingers at the ready… you know what to do.
There will always be a very special place in my heart for any wedding held at the beautiful Iscoyd Park. I said my very own ‘I Do’s’ at the venue and we’ve staged many a happy Rock My Wedding shoot in the grounds so I feel a certain affinity with any bride who has been lucky enough to host her own wedding day here.
Caroline and Nick said their vows to each other against a classic and elegant backdrop full of soft pastels, jazz, romantic kisses in the grounds and gorgeous flowers. Caroline looked exquisite in her Enzoani frock complete with statement jewellery and rose bouquet; I’m sure her dad would have been as proud as punch. The boys looked very dapper too in blue!
All the beautiful details were captured by Victoria Phipps.
Now that all the Christmas and New Year celebrations are over you’d be forgiven for thinking that you have nothing left to look forward to in this cold and dreary month. Banish those January blues with this glitzy glamorous black tie do from Kate and James who married at Yorebridge House last year amongst a backdrop of glitter.
There are gold sequinned bridesmaid dresses (immense!) a chocolate cake that will blow away even the most fervent chocoholics amongst us and probably the most romantic table florals I have seen in a long long time. If you love sequins and off-white blooms then you’ll need your pinning fingers at the ready!
I particularly love the images of Kate and James against the trees and green grass; their love for each other just pours out of the screen. Beautiful!
Pretty pastel details, lively green succulents and some EXCELLENT Bridal accessories feature in this morning’s wedding from Cripps Stone Barn in the Cotswolds.
Ellie and Harley are a super stylish couple with really great taste. I’d like Ellie’s coral shoes AND her chandelier earrings please. And Harley looks dapper in a checked suit. Grooms, take note – this is a good look!
The lovely images come from Michelle Lindsell, who has captured all of the love and details, but with a great sense humour too.
On 4th September 2011, Natasha and David married at Soughton Hall in North Wales.
Their day had elements of English garden (or Welsh in this case) with opulent touches, the black bows, the stripped back colour scheme, the candelabras dripping with pearls… oh and did I mention shoes by Christian Dior?
Photography today is by those Welsh wonders Charis and Owen at O&C photography.
A Bow At The Back
I bought my dress at Dreamcatchers, Kirkham (A brilliant and very helpful shop!). The dress make was Enzoani. Loved the lace and the sweetheart cut and then I added the sash to finish the dress off as I love accessories – especially belts. The bow at the back finished the dress off perfectly.
My parents bought me a lovely dark pearl set to go with the off white and black theme. It is an Indian tradition for the girls parents to buy their daughter jewellery. My parents are the best and we were so lucky to have this day because of their generosity.
Bags And Bows
As I am only very small I needed high heels!, my sister Rishma bought me Christian Dior shoes and they were black to go with the theme.
The detailing of the shoes were quilted and with a big bow at the front. I was also very lucky because my other sister Zera bought me a Chloe Handbag with a bow at the front – both brill for many occasions!
All The Way To Wales
My Make-up was by MAC Cosmetics (the best choice) and my make-up artist was Francesca Britton. I found her becasue she did my Bridesmaid Anne-maries friends wedding.
My hair was by Saks Lytham – they travelled all the way to Wales and were fab.
My sister Zera is very creative and decorated the ceremony room and the areas in the actual hall which were amazing, she went for whites and created a “love” theme. We had a big D&N made which was at the front of the hall.
Ava Event styling styled the Marquee and it was beautiful, following the Chanel theme perfectly with Luscious roses – Nude and off white, black bows and pearls. There were different table displays – Hurricane lamps and candelabras.
Simple Colour Scheme
We bought the five bridemaids dresses from House of Fraser and we had four Groomsmen. All the outfits fitted in with the simple colour scheme.
We Loved The Style
We chose the very talented O&C photography. I thought it was great that there were two of them and we loved the style of their photography.
Chic And Classic
My mums very close friends Marie and John Thompson made our cake for us. They are the owners of Bennetts Bakery in Ansdell.
The main cake was fruit cake and they made a seperate one with sponge as David doesn’t actually like fruit cake!.
The cake was perfect with black bows and a roses. it was very chic and classic.
At the champagne reception we had a steel band (my dads idea!), then we had an 80’s band Syntronix and then a DJ.
Our first dance was to ‘Just The Way You Are’ by Billy Joel. The words are perfect. Also I walked into the ceremony hall to Etta James ‘At Last’. What a beautiful song…. our two fave songs from the wedding.
For the men we bought miniature Jack Daniels bottles and for the ladies we bought mini glass perfume bottles, all tied with wooden heart name tags.
So Many Special Moments
We were surprised with a Vodka Luge which was fun for all. The food was amazing at the hotel – 1st class for the amount of people it catered for. The alcohol was flowing and the sun actually shone…It was beautiful.
There were so many special moments, it was all great, especially because we are now actually married. I think your wedding should definitely have a chilled morning with your family and friends.
My advice would be to take any support given, I was so lucky to have my family and fab friends.

Well I hoped you enjoyed that little visual treat. Some of those couple shots are totally breathtaking.
The genius that lies within the husband and wife team Owen and Charis at O&C photography has helped to make this one a day to remember for all involved.
Thank you to Natasha and David for sharing it with us.
