Although today’s wedding starts with a church service, the vibe is wonderfully whimsical and woodlandy, with celebrations under canvas and even a hand fasting ceremony in the afternoon! The venue is Bedfordshire’s enchanting Tofte Manor; the photographer is our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography.
Gorgeous couple Georgina and Ben had a relaxed and beautiful wedding in the summer. Their day is beautifully styled with glorious bouquets of pink peonies, purple and coral blooms with splashes of greenery and fabulous textures. The peony styling continues through to the wedding cake, which is displayed prettily on rustic wooden tables at the wedding breakfast. Georgina’s stunning lace dress is the star of the show, and her delicate flower crown is just beautiful!

The bridesmaids look so pretty in different styles of dress, all in palest green and match the groomsmen’s ties beautifully! The attention to detail for this woodland wedding is spot on – there are so many ideas here for you to take away and incorporate into your own wedding. Do remember to Pin the ideas you love! (You can check out our own Pinterest boards here). I will be saving a special place in my heart for the adorable wedding car… a super cute little VW Beetle, polished and loved so it almost steals the show!
In perfect keeping with the hot summer’s day, Georgina and Ben chose to serve their guests afternoon tea rather than a full on sit-down meal – and I think that’s a fabulous idea for summer weddings. Guests topped up with hot food in the evening, and drinks were served from a beer bath and gin bar!
