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.”

Hannah and Rik’s music themed, multi coloured theatre wedding with Paul Joseph Photography

Theatre venues are special: the atmosphere is already awesome but once your guests are seated there’s such a buzz of anticipation… I absolutely love them to bits! Hannah and Rik set the scene for their day (apologies for the stage pun!) with brilliant big letters and made their wedding exciting, theatrical and generally amazing from beginning to end.

Letters are by Glow Love Lights (these are the best: handmade by a master carpenter and for hire across the UK) and images are by lovely Leeds-based Paul Joseph Photography. (Congratulations to lovely Kelly, one half of the photography business, who is the new star blogger at Boho Weddings Blog!)

Hannah and Dean – a Great Gatsby wedding blog from Chilston Park, with Kerry Ann Duffy Photography

The moment I saw Hannah and Dean’s wedding photos I fell in love. Such an amazing couple, and such a beautiful day. Their Great Gatsby wedding at Kent’s Chilston Park Hotel is one of the most elegant celebrations I’ve seen, with fabulous styling and glorious details. But it’s the bride and groom – a stunning couple – who bowled me over. Hannah’s bridal look is more than gorgeous: her striking make up, her beautiful gown – she’s incredible. Although one comment on photographer Kerry Ann Duffy‘s facebook page made me chuckle: “Great pic, even better beard“… Dean’s look is fantastic and then some!

Hannah has written a great wedding report for us all today – full of brilliant advice, and wonderfully honest. She shares great budgeting tips, has an interesting story about dress shopping, and recommends some excellent Kent wedding suppliers. I love that she forgot to throw her bouquet… and was delighted that meant she could keep it! I would be too… it’s beautiful!
