Josie & Brett

Josie & Brett are a lovely American couple who live in Edinburgh. They got married at Carlowrie Castle in Edinburgh and all of their friends and family flew over from the States. Josie’s dress was designed by London designer Dana Bolton and the wedding has oodles of personal touches throughout, including the involvement of their beloved husky, Shasta. 

The photographer is Fraser Stewart. “he was SO MUCH FUN!” say the couple and we think he has done a great job of mixing modern photography with a very classic backdrop.

Kirsty & Tom

Would you just look at that colour pop bouquet! Isn’t it dreamy. Bride Kirsty actually pulled it together herself on the morning of her wedding day to groom Tom at the romantically rustic wedding venue Fforest in Wales.

This gorgeous duo almost didn’t get to marry at the venue of their dreams but as luck would have it, a last minute cancellation and a quick dash to see Fforest in the snow meant they could secure the spot to say I do. Talk about serendipity…

I adore this wedding, in the main because there is so much love and laughter which pours out from the photos captured by the talented Nicola Thompson Photography. Oh and you need to see the cute superbaby; you’ll see what I mean if you flick through the slider above.

Katie & Ben

I think Katie and Ben performed the best first dance routine I have ever seen. Now that’s a bold statement, but their moves are literally outrageous, it looked like such fun and we do love a couple who properly throw themselves into things 🙂

The gorgeous pair married in a stunning Scottish wedding venue overlooking Loch Lomond. Boturich Castle looks like a magical place to tie the knot and then party until the small hours. The whole celebration has been captured by the wonderful Tub of Jelly who have totally nailed capturing that soft, hazy, grey Scottish light that seems to come and go in a flash.

Enjoy this one lovelies, it’s a proper knees up.

Claire & Hugh

Well isn’t this just gorgeous?! Chateau Rigaud is such a dreamy location for a wedding and we love that Claire & Hugh have filled the place with colour! It brings such joy to the images from Especially Amy. Claire looks stunning in a dress designed for her by her Maid of Honour and then brought to life by bespoke dress maker Catharina at My Eden.

The whole day looks like an absolute riot, from getting ready and drinking champagne, to impromptu songs and amazing first dances – the whole wedding is just bursting with happiness and colourful rustic details.

Lucy & Graham

I love Glasgow’s Kelvingrove bandstand where this gorgeous couple chose to have their outdoor ceremony, and the fact that they get to stroll past it daily and reminisce about their wedding makes it even more special. The pictures captured by Caro Weiss of their family sitting on the steps with blankets, beaming during the nuptials are simply adorable.

Lucy was unsure of a colour scheme to begin with, but eventually settled on brights. Wait until you see her bridal bouquet & flower crown they are simple mesmerising. I added copious amounts of pictures for you (and I) to swoon over again and again. You’re welcome. I guarantee you’ll also be swooning over her Charlotte Balbier ‘Elodie’ gown, her Bridesmaids pale blue Ted Baker dresses and the grooms Harris Tweed jacket too. Such a stylish bunch.

Sarah & Nathan

I couldn’t help but add picture after picture of Bride Sarah’s dreamy Kate Halfpenny ‘Iris’ gown for you to swoon over. Every time you look at it you notice more of more of the intricate details, like the stunning lace overlay and those adorable cap sleeves. It looks like it was made for our gorgeous Bride Sarah and compliments this rustic vintage affair at Lainston House barn perfectly.

I also absolutely adore Sarah’s relaxed tousled up do and sweet Rachel Simpson bridal shoes, and how can I forget the heavenly blooms by The List member Arcade Flowers. The girls oversized bouquets and centrepieces will make your heart flutter.

A truly beautiful wedding filled with family, friends, lots of personal touches and lots of pretty. And if you’re a big fan of Sarah’s Halfpenny London gown too, be sure to check out more of Kate’s fabulous collection in our Look Book.

Liz & Nathan

I have literally been in utter amazement at the way our gorgeous couple have executed their rustic wedding at the fabulous Barn at Brynich.

Nathan proposed two weeks before the couple moved from Cardiff, to Melbourne, Australia so planning their wedding in Wales has been no mean task. Whilst the grooms focus was how long he could grow his beard in 18months (which is actually pretty impressive), the bride managed to order bridesmaid dresses for her best girls from across the pond and craft an abundance of delicious DIY decor as long as your arm.

I adore the lovely lavender wild flowers that Nathan’s parents dried in their sheds, the cute hand embroidered table names and how can I forget the knitted beards in homage to the groom. They even managed to secretly learn a choreographed dance to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking out Loud’, which I bet that was spectacular.

The country fashion is to die for, the views of the Brecon Beacons are breathtaking and the love and moments captured by Natalie Martin of this wonderful couple and their amazing wedding are truly stunning.

Lulu & Ben

This afternoon’s wedding is absolutely stunning. Lulu and Ben said I do against a beautiful woodland backdrop at Cannock Chase no less complete with rustic tipi, croquet and skittles, hay bales and glamping and even fry ups for everyone the morning after the day before. Their ceremony looks like a blast (I need to know more about this jumping over a broomstick tradition) and I’m hiring Super Fresh Power Squad for the next big event I host. They look flipping awesome.

I need to make special mention of Lulu’s couture dress which has the most exquisite neckline and the sweetest blush coloured back floral detail complete with cape, head piece and detachable train. WOW!

Also can we just take a moment to appreciate Ben’s awesome sartorial style; he looks blinking fantastic and the outfit suits the setting wonderfully. I love how his best boys also made a decent effort to get in on the action too!

Rebecca & James

Oh I do love a destination wedding. The towns and views seem to be so quaint and utterly breathtaking. Plus the sunlight seems to make for the prettiest of pictures.

When offered, Rebecca and James jumped at the chance to marry at their friend’s house in Lot-et-Garonne, Aquitaine, France and I can totally see why, it is SO so gorgeous. They were able to have a fabulous outdoor humanist ceremony followed by an equally fabulous wedding breakfast in the rustic barn. Enhanced only by a wealth of gorgeous finishing touches from Wedding Planner Marry Me In France, who had a trunk full of delicious details & decor, including that adorable order of the day clock display.

Everybody and everything looks so relaxed and intimate, none more than our stunning Bride Rebecca, who is an absolute vision in her Jenny Packham Esme gown and mint Rachel Simpson shoes.
