They had a blank canvas – literally – for their marquee reception and styled the space with lots of vintage details: gorgeous flowers, antique keys and a Choccywoccydoodah cake. Jessica’s stunning bouquet is by the fabulous Pumpkin & Pye, the other decorations were homemade.

Liz says, “No detail had been missed. The marquee was just stunning, flowers adorned tables and centrepieces at every turn. The garden was immaculate and full of more vintage loveliness… ” So shall we have a proper look? It’s beautiful – you’ll love it.

  • Do you have 5 minutes to read something really romantic? The story of @durhamroseuk  is wonderful: a prospective groom with an idea for the perfect engagement ring, who had to search far and wide and eventually design his own! After quite an adventure in the making, she said yes, they married... and the UK's leading bespoke engagement ring supplier was born! There's a little more to it, including the Dragons Den bit - but you can read all about that on the blog! For now, I'm in LOVE with this pendant Durham Rose created to match one of their bespoke rings. Isn't it wonderful? #customrings #bespokeengagementrings #uniqueengagementrings #engaged  #gettingmarried #durhamrose #durhamrosejewellery #bespokejewellery #behindthescenes #rosegold #ballerinaring #ballerinanecklace #matchingset #handmadejewellery #instajewellerygroup #hattongarden #london #fashion #design #handmade #bespoke #jewellery #jewelry #weddingring #wedding #engagementring #weekendvibes #dazzle #ringoftheday #ringsofinstagram
