Ben and Sally’s August wedding has so much character and warmth, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do. The bride and groom really personalised every detail of their wedding day from the ceremony to the flowers, stationery, cakes and wedding music. Sally’s wedding dress was handmade by her mum (and it’s gorgeous!) while Ben found his vintage suit from a shop in London.
Thank you to Ben and Sally for sharing your wedding day on the English Wedding Blog. Thanks also to lovely Leicestershire wedding photographer Alix Marina-Chouhan for the submission – this is a gorgeous wedding bursting with alternative ideas and I adore it! Enjoy! Claire xxx

How would you describe your wedding style?
Alternative and personal
Invitations and reception stationery:
What did you wear?
Sally wore a dress which her mum had made for her, with red shoes by Jasper Conran and silver jewellery. Ben’s suit was from a vintage store in Fulham
The wedding ceremony was held at Walmer Castle in Kent, which is now owned by English Heritage. The wedding reception was held in tipis in a local field, which perfectly suited the couple’s rustic theme and alternative wedding styling.
Wedding music and entertainment:
Some friends played a classical piece on the cello, and another friend sang a Bob Marley song. In the evening a DJ friend supplied the music.
