Prepare to fall head over heels (and down a rabbit hole) with this English countryside wedding, inspired by the story of Alice in Wonderland. American couple Allie & Justin fell in love with each other at the same time as falling in love with England, so there was only ever one place where they were going to start their happily ever after. Babington House is a stunning venue, and allowed the couple to host a four-day celebration for their friends and family, including a welcome brunch and farewell BBQ, as well as plenty of time to kick back, relax and enjoy the weekend (oh hello Cowshed spa!). With travel having been a cornerstone of their relationship, I love the compass motif incorporated throughout, and can’t get enough of the beautiful blooms, which are playful, wild and whimsical. Loose yourselves in this one, lovelies. It’s enchanting.
This morning we’re escaping to Italy, the Amalfi Coast to be precise, for a Jewish wedding filled with gorgeous flowers and fabulous decor. I absolutely love that Lauri & Milan chose to have two different looks for their ceremony and their reception – the white flower chuppah works perfectly with a backdrop of azure blue water and ancient Italian buildings, whereas the reception space feels warm and inviting with pink tones, lots of candles and fruit.
As well as the gorgeous photographs from Giuli & Giordi we’ve got a really fun stop-motion film that they created too. It’s addictive to watch and gives you a great idea of what the day was like. Which, I think it’s safe to say was full of laughter, incredible scenery, good food, wine and sunshine!
I’m not sure we’ve featured a wedding before where EVERYTHING was made and supplied by the bride and groom’s friends and family. Susannah and Harrison’s big day is quite remarkable in that respect not to mention super stylish. The fusion of Christian and Jewish traditions is so personal to the couple and as they both work in Nairobi, Kenya, their “natural, rustic with an African streak” theme couldn’t be more perfect.
Susannah made her own BEAUTIFUL wedding gown with the help of her Mum and her accessories are some of the most unique, simple-yet-show-stopping I’ve ever seen. And I must mention her plait, because I am jealous of it.
Get ready to pin until your fingers ache folks.
