Amy & Darren

“Our florist Jay Archer is just an absolute female boss!”
Never before has a truer word been spoken, she has literally created floral genius at Amy & Darren’s outdoor ceremony at Whalton Manor in Northumberland. The use of brambles and dramatic crimson flowers and foliage in the floral arch framing the couples nuptials is nothing short or spectacular.
All captured beautifully be Andy Turner Photography, as well as all the emotion. It looks like there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

The reception took place in a PapaKata teepee which was also full of hanging florals, romantic votives, laughter and delicious food, and I can’t finish without saying what an absolute vision bride Amy looks in her Anna Campbell gown from Coco and Kate Boutique.

Natalie & Jack

I can’t even begin to tell you how in LOVE with this wedding I am. Largely because it’s in my neck of the woods and secondly because it features SO many talented suppliers including the lovely Natalie Hewitt Wedding & Event Planner who executed this industrial barn wedding to perfection.

She helped bride and groom Natalie & Jack inject their much desired glamour and sophistication into the natural setting of their venue, with an epic suspended wedding cake by Couture Cakes (whose gorgeous wedding we featured on these very pages too) and an immense floral installation by Jay Archer. There was also a seriously cool chill out area with vintage sofas and chandeliers, and I just love the wooden door seating plan. All of which I have a feeling will be pinned within an inch of their lives, so be warned.

Jeni Smith Photography not only captured all the decor and details for us to pore over and pin, she also, captured all the magic between this wonderful couple. Have you seen those teary eye wedding ceremeony moments yet? And as far as fashion goes, ALL the heart eyes for the brides Naomi Neoh gown and bridesmaids blush pink Coast separates.

The Luxe Edit

The team have been doing collective squeals about this shoot all morning…it’s an absolute stunner and features the work of the very best people in the wedding industry. Emma and Kat the duo behind Coco & Kat have really outdone themselves, every detail of this shoot has been planned and styled to perfection. I’m not going to give away too much, as the delicious images from Rebecca Goddard and film by Jacob & Pauline will do a much better job, but I’ll set the scene for you.

We find ourselves in the Devon countryside, at elegant exclusive hire wedding venue Pynes House for a weekend-long wedding, filled with fabulous florals, frocks and frippery. The weekend begins with a calm morning of getting ready, an intimate outdoor ceremony is then followed by a stylish and decadent reception, with sore heads nursed by the most beautiful brunch on Sunday morning. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin…

Alyssa & Simon

The colours and textures in this morning’s stylish winter wedding will have you longing to pull your faux fur and sequins out of your wardrobe – Alyssa and Simon certainly know how to throw a festive shindig. They used a peacock feather as inspiration for their colour palette which means the whole day is filled with opulent purples, blues and golds, even the flowers. The bouquet and arrangements by Jay Archer are just exquisite.

Alyssa is a choreographer so naturally dance played a big part in her wedding day, everyone piled onto the dance floor to join her and Simon following their first dance, for which they wore customised Nikes and baseball hats. Don’t worry, it’s all been captured beautifully by Irene Yap so you can have a good nosey…

Katie & David

Katie and David’s candlit barn wedding ceremony and reception is just beautiful. Every detail seems perfectly curated, but not at all overly styled. From the all white flowers by Jay Archer to the simply written chalkboard signs. Katie’s dress is stunning too, it’s hard to combine ‘bridal’ with ‘sexy’ and keep things elegant, but this Watters gown delivers and then some…

The atmospheric images from Haydn Rydings capture the day beautifully, much better than any words from me can, so I’ll let you enjoy them. But be prepared to swoon!

Emma & James

If I had my wedding day again then I would 110% consider marrying in a golden gown which is what the beautiful Emma wore to say ‘I Do’ to her boy James. The pair decided to follow their hearts and celebrate their union in a pub because… as Emma states below “we love London and we really love pubs”. What better then than to party on down at The Prince Albert in Camden surrounded by the prettiest blooms and a slice of cheese cake.

I adore the relaxed feel of this gorgeous day and especially the heart lips and sparkly beard favours which you need to check out in the gallery below. Genius.

Allie & Sam

I wish I could write an introduction as well as Allie but I can’t, so I’ll let her tell you all about her and Sam’s love story and their beautiful wedding which is full of the most magical details curated by Curious Fair and stunning florals by Jay Archer Floral Design.

Some of the moments captured by Marianne Chua’s will move you to tears, and please make sure you check out the aisle arch, it’s a thing of breathtaking beauty.

Allie: “An Englishman meets a Yankee-Doodle in the Windy City. They fall in love. He teaches her the delicious ways of tea drinking, Marmite eating, and meat roasting. She teaches him style, a love for all things design, and the joys of cat ownership. They live in the Manor House, dancing on the rooftop between the turrets and the Lion and the Unicorn…

Rozie & Tom

Well this is a wedding and a half!! Full of beautiful handcrafted details, outrageously girly flowers, the prettiest Naomi Neoh dress (‘Marianne’ if you’re wondering) and the boys looking handsome in tails…it’s just an absolute extravaganza of pretty!

Bride Rozie clearly put her absolute heart and soul into her wedding and the result is just stunning. She’s chosen suppliers who have understood her vision perfectly and the whole day has come together with a truly magical feel to it. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a completely hand-sewn table plan before and I’m sure it won’t be the last, as once you’ve seem how effective it is I can guarantee lots of you will want to recreate it!

I’ve included a longer wedding film for you too – as it’s just such fun. I love how White Star Pictures have ‘interviewed’ the couple and it gives you a lovely insight into their characters, and both seem totally lovely and made for each other. Congratulations Rozie and Tom, we’re thrilled to be sharing your wedding today.

Rachel and Ben married at Douai Abbey in Upper Woolhampton. If you are having your dad walk you down the aisle on your big day it will be one of the moments you remember forever. Just imagine how super lovely it would be for your Dad to walk you down the aisle and then actually marry you?! How amazing is that? That is exactly the case in Rachel and Ben’s wedding. Their reception was full of amazing blooms so if you are a flower lover and a liker of pastel shades, this is the wedding for you.
