Cerian and Tom’s beautiful Coombe Lodge Bristol wedding with home made touches, images by Joseph Hall Photography

Your wedding doesn’t have to have a theme – it just has to reflect your personalities. Cerian and Tom planned a simple, beautiful wedding at Coombe Lodge with homemade touches and pastel colours – but adamantly no theme! And you know what? It works wonderfully.

My lovely sponsor, Bristol wedding photographer Joseph Hall, was there on the day to document it all. His style is natural and creative, perfect for this relaxed and family-oriented couple. I adore the images of their day and I knew as soon as I saw them that you would too!

My personal highlights today include the glorious venue and autumn sunshine, Cerian’s gorgeous dress and the excitement of all the children on the day (kids can make weddings a million times extra special!) – oh and the Penguin book stationery touches, which are fab!

Enjoy.

Our village country fete wedding in Salisbury, by Steve + Annaliese with Joseph Hall Photography

I love how Annaliese describes her wedding to Steve in a rush of words: “Joyful, relaxed, beautiful, special, homespun, amazing, creative, fun!” And oh, you can tell from the photos it was all of that and more.

I love the funny touches to their day which made me smile so much: the beard basher (not as bad as it sounds!!), the mini chauffeur (so cute) and his car! – Oh, the beautiful bride goes without saying: Annaliese is stunning (and Steve’s a looker too!) but what strikes me most of all is the atmosphere and relaxed, quirky style of their wedding celebrations.

Ever been serenaded? This wedding film’s brilliant! With gorgeous Alana + Yung, by HD Moments

I had the sound turned right up on my laptop when I clicked play… and to be honest, it made me jump a little! But ten seconds in and I was grinning like a fool. Yung’s serenade is a fabulous start to this romantic wedding film by my lovely sponsors HD Moments.

Alana and Yung married at Devonshire Terrace in London.  Although the ceremony had a contemporary and simple theme the gorgeous couple stayed true to their roots and the style of their wedding day paid tribute to their Chinese heritage.

Enjoy the wedding film, which takes you from the wedding ceremonies through to a wonderful reception at the Phoenix Palace Restaurant. This is a wonderful modern wedding – with a dancing Chinese dragon for something just a little different! I LOVE it!

Watch out too for the paper lanterns hung outside amidst a scattering of fairy lights, for Alana’s stunning updo and glorious bouquet, and – right at the end – the most adorable wedding car imaginable!

A few of our favourite things – Jake and Victoria’s vintage country wedding in Cornwall, with Evolve Photography

Jake and Victoria are a cool, great-looking and stylish couple with infectious smiles and a sense of fun! Their October wedding is full of sunshine – and oh, those sunflowers are just delicious aren’t they?!

Wedding blog at The Green, Cornwall by Evolve Photography (18)

They married at The Green in Cornwall (on the edge of Bodmin moor) and took inspiration from country weddings and 1920s styling for their reception. It all looks fabulous. Special mention for the adorable cat table numbers (awwww!) and Victoria’s Dad’s help with the wellies and flowers which inspired their day.

My favourite touch for this wedding is the dress. So, so beautiful… and yet it wasn’t love at first sight for this one-off original vintage dress. Victoria told me at first “the dress was dirty, had a hole in it and the beading was falling off. But, it was a handmade original 1920s net dress with the most beautiful beading on it and that’s what I fell in love with…” Read the wedding report at the end of today’s post to find out how she managed to restore it so beautifully.

Glamorous Vespa and Campervan Church Farm wedding, with Darren Williams Photography

There’s nothing I adore more than a vintage Vespa wedding – and Esmeri and Ross added fun to their day with his n hers vintage vehicles: a Vespa for the groom, and a campervan for the bride. LOVE! Their glamorous wedding was at Church Farm and photographed by Welsh wedding photographer Darren Williams.

Weddings are going to be ultra glamorous this year, and Es and Ross rocked fabulously glam styling with classic elegance: a Mori Lee dress, bespoke mod suit and guests in black and white. Family and friends were recruited to prepare everything from cakes to signage – as Es told me, “it is a great achievement to say that you pulled it off and created such a beautiful day with the help of your family.”

Siobhan and Iain’s creative and beautiful DIY village hall wedding in Yorkshire, with Mark Dolby Photography

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had an amazing holiday and enjoyed the 100 real weddings I featured on the blog over Christmas. Time now for the first real wedding of 2015… and it’s just gorgeous. I love the little details today’s bride and groom created for their day – their attention to detail is wonderful; there is plenty here to inspire your own big day and I know you’ll love it!

DIY creative village hall wedding in Yorkshire by Mark Dolby Photography (2)

Siobhan is beautiful, wearing a lace dress with a delicate belt. Her accessories are fabulous – and I adore her bouquet, by Leonora Rose. The styling of the day is a highlight though – with friends and family all pitching in to help with stationery design, decorating, table arrangements and the seating plan there’s so much to see!
