An English country garden wedding in Henley on Thames, with Hannah McClune Photography

Hats off to the wonderfully named, beautiful Kelly Kelly for today’s wedding report, which is awesome, full of advice and ends with one of the best comments ever! Kelly married Chris last summer, and I wanted to show you their wedding which is full of inspiration for summer couples. I think you’ll love it!

Of course there’s plenty of sunshine in today’s blog feature, and while it’s suddenly gone back to winter in the real world (I mean seriously – roll on May!!) we could all do with a dose of warm and shiny, right?

Kelly is just gorgeous: I adore her hair and she’s such a fabulous looking bride, with a smile which has had me grinning back at my screen all morning :) She shares some fab tips and advice in today’s wedding report, which follows all the lovely pics. Don’t miss it!

Emma and Davide’s timeless, graceful Yorkshire teepee wedding, with My Love Story Photography

I love today’s wedding for its simple, understated elegance… that looks a million dollars and more. Davide and Emma were married in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside on a glorious sunny day and their wedding is more than perfect. Emma is the most graceful bride; Davide her perfect match. Their celebrations took place at their family home, under fabulous canvas… just look at the wonderful wedding teepees!!

I loved the rich, vibrant colours of Katie and Damian’s Lancashire wedding as soon as I saw them – the rustic styling is beautifully done, and all of the DIY elements of today’s wedding are bound to inspire some of you!

Gorgeous bride Katie has shared some lovely tips on budgeting, crafting and planning their wedding day, and her advice is wonderful: “Stay true to you and your husband-to-be’s wishes as other people will certainly have their input in the matter but you have to do what you want as it’s your day. Savour every second as it truly does fly by and set a limit of meeting and greeting.”

Cruelty Free Bridal Lippies from Love, Honour and Be True

Hey there beautiful! It’s been a crazy week for me and I’m finally settling into my brand new house. Exciting times… and one thing I’ve kept in my handbag, away from the boxes where I’ve lost everything else I own (seriously; why did I write ‘randomness’ on every box? Where are my pants?!) … is my new favourite lipstick from Love, Honour & Be True. Helen and Kitty, who founded Love, Honour & Be True last year, kindly sent me a sample to try and it hasn’t left my side since!

Of course there’s more to today’s feature than a pretty lipstick. I’m writing this post for Love, Honour & Be True because they’re all about cruelty free lipsticks as well as being independent British wedding suppliers.

A prettily styled rustic vintage wedding in Dorset, with Ian H Photography

Before I show you one of the prettiest weddings of the year so far – and you’ll LOVE it!! – a very quick reminder that I have a dozen sponsor slots left from May. If you’re interested read this and get in touch! But more importantly…

Very early on her wedding day morning Kerrie went for a walk in the countryside around Studland village. This is such a lovely thing to do: she told me it was very relaxing and a really memorable moment of the whole day. I think it’s really romantic and a wonderful way to think ahead to the day which will follow.

I love how the venue was decorated: it was a labour of love with family pitching in the day before, and only the second time a wedding reception had taken place in the hall… but Kerrie and Nick truly made it their own and styled a pretty, welcoming and relaxed celebration which I’m thrilled to be sharing with you today!
