Bride Isobel has to be one of the smiliest brides to ever grace our pages, but I’d be beaming too if I have the perfect country marquee wedding at my new husbands family home. Can we also take a moment to appreciate her braided updo too? It frames her face beautifully and shows off the sweetheart neckline on her Halfpenny London wedding dress perfectly. Together with her bridesmaids in white and Groom in a traditional morning suit the whole wedding party and outdoor wedding are pure wedding goals.

As The Beatles famously said, “We get by with a little help from our friends” and this is never truer than at a wedding. Hannah, our bride today, was in the very fortunate position of having a mum who runs the GORGEOUS Rustic Rentals (a member of The List, so they get our big fat stamp of approval) but she also says that their wedding wouldn’t have been a success were not for the extraordinary generosity and talent of their family and friends. Isn’t that just lovely?! From the incredible flower hoop to the prettiest maids in cornflour blue, there are so many elements to love about this wedding.
Oh, and remember, if you’re on the lookout for your team of epic wedding pros, make sure you take a look at our handpicked supplier directory, The List.
Holding a garden wedding in your own home means you get to create your very own bespoke venue. Together with their family and friends Niamh and Alex grafted for a full week to set up the most beautiful setting for their big day, and by golly was it worth it. The wedding was photographed by our very own List members, The Georges who really captured the vibe of the day. Let me also say there are some excellent frocks on show here not just from the bride and her girls but also the guests too!
Temperatures are set to soar this weekend and so will your hearts at the sight of this PapaKata Sperry tent wedding bursting with sentiment. The couple says I do in the brides family church where she and her son were Christened and then head to her parent’s home where she grew up for a wedding reception of dreams at the bottom of their garden. Add some foliage wedding decor, sloe gin favours and a Suzanne Neville bridal gown and you’re in wedding heaven.
You can’t beat the feeling of being at home, which is exactly where Annika & Richard chose to have their gorgeous marquee wedding. They filled it with foliage, Edison bulbs and all their favourites, resulting in a joyous Summer wedding on the Isle of Wight captured by the formidable duo Jason Mark Harris and Harris Films.
Classic style never goes out of fashion, and this wedding is proof that timeless will always be on trend. The bridal party look picture perfect in their black tie and blush bridesmaids dresses, whilst the bride is a knockout in her off-the-shoulder St Patrick dress. Ooh, that lace! Hampshire Collegiate School – the former home of Florence Nightengale, no less – provides a stunning backdrop to the celebrations, whilst clever calligraphy signs – including a mirror table plan, kraft label place settings and wooden sign – look great and get guests into place. Multitasking at its prettiest! This is the sort of day that will never date. Pinning fingers at the ready…
When the family home looks as beautiful as bride Sarah’s it really is a no brainer to hold the wedding there. Making excellent use of the stunning gardens and following the ‘English Country’ theme through to the marquee reception with epic hanging foliage garlands and hoops.
Sarah looks incredible in a Rime Arodaky gown, giving the illusion of bridal separates with its cutaway top under the lace overlay. As do her bridesmaids in blush pink dresses from the high street. Keeping with tradition the groomsmen opt for morning suits, and together this wedding party are pure goals.
The wonderful photography skills of Jason Mark Harris were on hand making this collection of images a delight to pore over.
When the bride is Grace, from Bramble & Wild, you expect the flowers to be epic. But her and James’ marquee wedding filled with peonies, David Austin roses, foxgloves & delphiniums is beyond incredible. Every single stem has been placed perfectly, but in that gorgeously undone, organic style Bramble & Wild are known for. The rich and warm colour palette of berry tones, pinks and purples, is just delicious and proves that these striking tones work beautifully year round (although Grace did chose May deliberately for it’s abundance of flowers).
The couple served an incredible menu that included lots of vegan and vegetarian options, so if this is important to you, make sure you read her menu as it all sounds mouthwatering.
Naturally the team behind this day are all the very best suppliers out there, so check out the supplier list at the bottom of the post if you’re still hunting! They are clearly a very talented bunch…
