Stacey and Alex’s blush wedding at Ardington House, with Benjamin Wetherall Photography

Before I say anything else, I just have to start with Stacey’s DRESS today – because WOW!!! She looks incredible in a Stella York gown from Bicester Bridal. This is a dreamy outdoor wedding in Oxfordshire, with gorgeous May sunshine (and the sunset is stunning!) and a soft colour palette of blush with accents in powder blue and gentle peach. The flowers are wonderful, the vibe is elegant, fun and romantic and the images by Benjamin Wetherall Photography take my breath away. You’ll love this.

We met Ben at a wedding fair and fell in love with his style of photography as well as the personalities of both him and his wife

We loved the images we received. They capture the best moments of the day that we can look back on. Ben’s professionalism on the day was everything we could have wished for!

Where did you find your suppliers? (Blogs, magazines, recommendations?)

Word of mouth and wedding fairs

What’s your top tip for saving money?

Don’t bother with confetti or table decorations – nobody notices the little things on the day

… and which elements of your wedding are you glad you spent more on?

Flowers – we filled the venue with flowers inside and out

Where did you buy or source your wedding stationery – or was making it a labour of love?

My mum works for a stationery factory who gave us a discount – it is always worth asking

Did you fall in love with your wedding dress?

Yes and luckily only went to one shop

Wedding dress designer and bridal boutique:

Bicester bridal – Stella York

Tell us about your accessories: jewellery, shoes and anything else!

Shoes – ASOS
Jewellery- beaverbrooks

And what did the groom wear?

Suit from TM Lewin

Beautiful bridesmaids: what did your best girls wear?

All dresses from wed2b, shoes from ASOS

Hair and make-up – did you DIY or hire a professional?

Crafts and makes – tell us about any homemade elements of your wedding… did you enjoy them?

All outdoor games were homemade by a friend
We made all of our wedding favours which we enjoyed doing in the evenings before the wedding

The wedding cake: what kind of cake did you choose and why?

Lemon and elderflower three-tiered wedding cake from Hayleys Cake Studio

Entertainment: any musical recommendations, surprises or treats?

Live music and DJ – the tommy guns who we would highly recommend they were amazing and entertaining the guests
We also organised a chocolate fountain and sweet cart who unfortunately we would not recommend as we did not receive the service we agreed to.

Words of wisdom: share your best piece of advice for other couples:

Don’t stress about the little things nobody notices on the day
Also if you are able to set up the venue the day before then definitely do it, it reduced the stress so much for us

What’s the best thing about being married?

Not much actually changes except your name and wearing a wedding ring, but the best thing is being able to call your best friend your husband
