Tempting typography and charming wedding invitations from Kent’s White & Winsome

I love to see something new in wedding stationery, from those suppliers I love and from new, emerging craft businesses across England and the UK. White & Winsome landed in my inbox with a happy ping recently and I simply had to share their fabulous invites with you!

Unique wedding invitations by White and Winsome (9)

Unique invitations include adorable boxed ceramic tiles, watercolour paper booklets and vinyl records, all personalised especially for you. They’re just wonderful – I’m only happy I don’t have to decide on just one and can show you them all today!

White & Winsome designs combine quirky, playful typography with charming materials to warm every heart. Every layout is customised to each wedding and all invitations come complete with envelopes or packaging.

Ceramic tiles make for a unique invitation and keepsake for wedding guests. Each handmade, full colour printed ceramic tile combines beautiful vintage flower photography with one-off personalised event details.

A wonderfully elegant rustic wedding at Notley Abbey, with Reid Photography

I fell in love with Danielle and Phung’s Notley Abbey wedding as soon as I saw the images: their vibrant colours and beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony stole my heart. This was an international celebration with family travelling from all over the world. Danielle bought her stunning dress in New York, the table plan was a world map (it’s fab!) and there was a tea ceremony as well as the outdoor wedding and reception.

I adore Notley Abbey for its grounds and grandeur: truly a favourite English wedding venue. Danielle told me, “The setting was amazing, but the small touches such as the flowers, family pictures, and wooden signs added our personal touch.”

Creating natural, rustic wedding flowers with the fabulous Katie Laura Flowers

I adore the natural look when it comes to wedding flowers. Rustic flowers just look as though they’ve been lovingly put together… for me I think the appeal is seeing flowers which don’t look manufactured. Do you know what I mean? As though they’ve been carefully gathered by a nice person who loves flowers and creating beautiful things (vs. uniform bunches wrapped in cellophane by Interflora or stabbed with diamantes…) with rustic, natural flowers it’s easier to love them back.

I stumbled across the loveliest blog feature by Katie Laura Flowers last month. Katie is a Yorkshire lass who launched her floristry company “so I could delve into the world where design meets nature with flowers & foliages.” She loves twigs, writes with real passion and has a talent for creating textured, luxurious wedding flower designs with a fanciful twist! Katie writes about natural, rustic wedding flowers and shows how she creates a gorgeous bouquet with more character than you can shake a twirly twig at! I love this… over to Katie!

Helen and Dan’s super unique wedding at Bailbrook House, with Simon Biffen Photography

I love these two. Helen and Dan – a bride and groom so gorgeous and full of personality you’ll wish you’d been there on the day. Their wedding had lots of lovely yellow details: a rose bouquet in two shades; beautiful bridesmaid dresses and a fabulous cake. Bailbrook House is magnificent: a Grade II* listed country house hotel located just a few minutes from the centre of historic Bath.

Helen is such a stunning bride, wearing a pearl- and sparkle-embellished dress with the loveliest waistband. Her hair piece is divine; her glasses stylish and sassy. Dan wears a great tweed suit – as their wedding photographer (the lovely Simon Biffen) says: “Dan cut a fine figure in one of the sharpest tweed suits I’ve ever seen.”

All images are by lovely Simon Biffen Photography. Simon is a UK wedding photographer, based in Somerset and happy to travel throughout the UK to photograph weddings. Wherever you are, do check him out… I think he’s fabulous!

Angela and Shawn’s Lulworth Castle wedding, with Paul Underhill Photography

It’s been a little while since I featured a castle wedding, and I’d almost forgotten how spectacular they can be! Today – a reminder via one of the best: this is Angela and Shawn’s Lulworth Castle wedding. You will be blown away – it’s incredible.

Lulworth Castle wedding blog (19)

The castle dates back to the 17th century and is fiercely proud of its history – the knight who features throughout today’s blog post will attest to that! (He’s the one with the Mr & Mrs sign between his teeth…) Angela decorated the reception room with hundreds of candles in jam jars and the effect is beautiful.

Thanks to lovely creative wedding photographer Paul Underhill for sharing his images of such a gorgeous castle wedding with us today.

A gorgeous mansion house and Riverstation wedding in Bristol, with Joseph Hall Photography

Do you ever sit grinning at your screen, catch yourself and then realise why? That’s me this morning: I’ve been scrolling through all the lovely images from Vanessa and Andy’s Bristol wedding – and I can’t stop smiling!

wedding in bristol (3)

This gorgeous couple married back in June with a ceremony at The Mansion House, followed by a trip on the famous Bagheera ferry and then wedding breakfast reception at the Riverstation… and lucky for me, and for you, they took lovely Bristol wedding photographer Joseph Hall along with them!

I adore Vanessa’s delicate white lace wedding dress, her flower crown and the way she smiles at Andy – there are such lovely moments here and I keep scrolling up and down the images to take it all in… The wedding day was a real treat for guests as well with laughter and friendship in everyone’s eyes as they travelled on the ferry (with Bristol Packet Boat Trips) – do grab a cuppa and take the time to read through the full blog post with me… it’s fabulous.
