Every now and then, in the colder months of the year I like to brighten up everyone’s day with crazy beautiful colourful flowers. So here… today’s Dorset wedding is pure joy for your screens and I hope you LOVE it!
Images are by Oana Brasoveanu at Linus Moran Photography – they’re vibrant, full of fun and capture the spirit of Pippa and Dick’s wedding day beautifully.
I adore Pippa’s dress – she’s such a beautiful bride. Dick is fantastic – his character shines through in every image and makes the day a true favourite for me. There’s nothing like the spirit of summer to brighten a November day, right?

How did you choose your photographer?
We looked online at a few different photographers and got in touch with Linus. We loved Oana’s photos that Linus sent us so we decided to go with her.
Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!
Yes! They were so relaxed and didn’t boss people around like some photographers do! They worked so hard that day and even stayed late as we were running behind. And most importantly we love the photos.
Tell us about the moment you saw your wedding photos for the first time?
We kept on recounting memories of the day and a month on, we still can’t stop looking at them!

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?
I’m very lucky to have a husband who is a designer and so he produced our stationery.

Describe your wedding flowers. Who arranged them for you? (florist details would be lovely please)
We absolutely loved the wild flowers by Kate from Rambling Rose.
General styling – did your venue need much decoration?
The Hare and Hounds has a beautiful garden. The view is amazing and the garden itself is so pretty. So all we needed to do was decorate the marquee!
Crafts and makes – tell us about any homemade elements of your wedding… did you enjoy them?
We had such fun doing the place settings which were embarrassing photos of all our guests!

We had friends make cakes which were amazing. And we also had a naked cake from http://www.fancythatcakes.net/ which was yum!
Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?
Our band were called The Salvation and were fab. The dancefloor was always full!
Words of wisdom: share your best piece of advice for other couples:
Look behind you in the ceremony to see all your friends and family!
What’s the best thing about being married?
The best thing about our wedding day (apart from marrying each other!) was just having everyone you care about in one room. We had face ache at the end of the day from all the smiling!
