Welcome to the weekend, lovelies. This is one for snuggling together, taking some time for self care and a little autumn nesting – we’re sending hugs to all of you after this week’s announcements. And to bring a little beauty and extra warmth into your day we have this fabulous pre-lockdown wedding to share with you. Tim & Emily’s day is blissfully beautiful, with rich winter styling touches and the most wonderful elegance and style. These two made a conscious choice to support local businesses, and right now that’s so important: if you’re planning your wedding for 2021 please look for suppliers local to you – it means the world to us!

The breathtaking images from this glorious Bolton Abbey wedding are by Yorkshire wedding photographers M and G Wedding Photography.

I’ll let you into a little secret right now: the LAST photo from Claire & Senaka’s Cotswolds wedding is my favourite. The things Gloucestershire wedding photographer Martin Dabek can do with nighttime wedding photography just blow my mind! But before you get there, we have the loveliest wedding at one of our favourite barn venues to share with you today. Our gorgeous couple tied the knot on a September day (not this year!), styling their celebrations with botanical details, pretty signage and foliage. Claire’s dress with that adorable belt and lace detail is from Clifton Brides, and we love Senaka’s suit too (and that fabulous floral tie!) – all in all, the perfect elegant rustic wedding day.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We searched on the internet for photographers in Bristol and narrowed down a short list of ones who had quite a natural style. We met Martin first and booked him straight away, he was so friendly and relaxed we felt immediately at ease. We loved his photos especially the way he captured the little moments of the day.

Has September sunk in yet?! It hardly feels more than a few weeks since lockdown… and so I wanted to share this pretty spring wedding with you today. Beautiful brides Hannah and Jess tied the knot days before the world stopped in March, and their sunny, vibrant spring wedding is full of happiness and love. Images are by our friend Mark at Evolve Photography in Devon, and the florals by his lovely wife Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye! The venue is The Green Cornwall (I know, I know… we blogged another wedding there on Saturday!)

I hope you love this wedding as much as I do. Have a lovely Wednesday!

The thing about barn wedding venues is all that lovely character they have… and The Green Cornwall is one of our faves! Its walls tell a story and make a quirky backdrop for beautiful ceremonies, and Hannah & Joel’s day fits perfectly! This is a wedding full of love and joy, with the loveliest details (pom pom confetti – YES!!!) which I know you’ll love. Our gorgeous couple have shared their supplier recommendations and a happy review for our friend Alexa Poppe Photography. Congratulations Hannah & Joel, we LOVE your wedding!

Happy Sunday everyone! So today… a relaxed and fun wedding from last summer, with a joyful vibe and a brilliant interview from our lovely bride and groom. Beth and Jez are GORGEOUS and then some – and I adore Beth’s skirt and top, she looks amazing! The story of their day makes a fantastic read (thanks Beth!) and I only wish I knew more about the He-Man and Monty Python references in their ceremony… which gives you a flavour of how entertaining and awesome this day really was!

I’ll leave you to scroll happily through the images by Damien Vickers Photography, with words by beautiful bride Beth.

A perfect wedding to share with you on a Friday… Phil & Chrissy’s day is full of fun and colour, it’s elegantly styled with a rustic flair.

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

Trevenna Barns was absolutely stunning. The views and the way we were able to have all of our close family and friends in the barns was special to us.

Nothing can brighten a hump day like a stunningly beautiful wedding… and this one is EPIC! Our stunning bride and groom tied the knot on the edge of the Lake District (pre-lockdown!) and their day is filled with sunshine, love, laughter and the most wonderful florals. Eden Barn wedding photographer Howell Jones Photography gets a brilliant review from the happy couple – unsurprisingly, as the images of their day are just fabulous!

Susie made her own dress – and the delicate fabric skirt and beautiful lace are perfect for a summer wedding – she looks incredible, don’t you think? Do scroll all the way through their images to see Eden Barn in all its glory – and some hilarious shots with a life size cardboard Tom. There’s also a supplier list for other Eden Barn / Cumbria wedding couples below. Enjoy this, lovelies!

With love,

Jenny and Ben’s August wedding is instantly a favourite for me – they’re the loveliest, sweetest couple and their day just rocks my wedding bloggy WORLD!! There are some wonderful ideas I just know you’ll love – aside from the hundreds of pom poms, there’s a mobile gin factory on a VW camper van with jars of spices and copper pots to make your very own wedding gin right there on the day – genius. There are sunflowers and pinwheels in a rainbow of colours, along with fairy lights everywhere, and fabulous vintage style tea length dresses, and GLORIOUS florals – it’s just everything. Jenny looks stunning in her Brighton Belle dress. Ben’s relaxed look gets a huge YES from me: suits are not obligatory for weddings, guys! He looks fab – and more than anything, the happiness between these two is infectious. They describe their day as “a colourful rustic, vintage, craft collaboration with a gin twist!”

Today’s wedding is wonderfully sunny and warm, beautifully styled and sooo romantic – it’s absolutely wonderful and I’ve been so excited to share this with you! Gorgeous couple Amy and Niall were married in Somerset, and styled their day around their backgrounds: as Amy is from Yorkshire and Niall is from Wales they incorporated both of these into their day.

They chose the tythe barn at Priston Mill as their wedding venue, and our lovely friend Priston Mill wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day. So grab a cuppa and join us as we enjoy scrolling through the beautiful photographs of this rustic, relaxed, natural wedding day, full of love and laughter!

Hey beautiful! Today’s wedding is a treat – an all-out floral feast in the simplest of colour schemes, with stunning images and a focus on family. This Mill Barns in Alveley wedding has pretty much everything – and I love the images, by Deborah at Stott Weddings. The styling and lighting makes this a really impressive day to share on the blog – with Perfectly Unique Occasions providing a floral arch and blossom canopy trees to style the ceremony and wedding breakfast tables. 

 

“The Mill Barns is a beautiful venue without much extra decoration needed and in beautiful surroundings too! However we chose Perfectly Unique occasions to dress the venue, which they did beautifully and it was truly stunning what they did! We chose our items beforehand but seeing it all together in the day was just incredible!

We made part of our favours ourselves, we had personalized m&ms in little jars for a little sweet treat for our guests! For the little guests at our wedding we made goody bags, with wedding crafts, activities, coloring, sweets and bubbles!

A black tie wedding… the most amazing boho dress covered in delicate sparkles… and more fun and laughter and PARTYING than you’d think you could fit into one day. This wedding – as they always are when our friends and sponsors at York Place Studios are involved – is an absolute blast of beautiful and playful, and I LOVE it.

The Normans venue is a charming, rustic space on a working farm just outside York. Covered in twinkling fairy lights, it’s welcoming and picture perfect inside and out. The courtyard is wonderful on a sunny day, and as evening sets guests can relax in the cow shed (snug) or grain shed (ultimate party space!) – take a look at http://thenormansweddings.co.uk

We cannot thank you enough, we have been screeching with laughter, I can only imagine what you guys witnessed that night!

We just love all these photos so much, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. They are the perfect end to an amazing year, and they are exactly how we wanted the wedding captured!

Hey lovelies! Welcome to Monday… and to a fabulous festival wedding in June at Northside Farm, Northumberland. This is a beautiful barn venue with glamping huts & tipis for brides, grooms and guests can stay in. Gorgeous bride Laura and dapper hubby Daryl enjoy their festivals, and with TONS of wonderful handcrafting. Laura worked on her wedding stationery almost every night for a YEAR! She also learned how to crochet so she could make blankets for her guest in case they got cold in the evening! Laura describes their wedding as “3 days of pure joy and happiness” – and it shows in the pics. I hope you love all these ideas as much as I do!

“From before we were even engaged I had the theme of our wedding picked out. Daryl and I enjoy a festival and we knew we wanted to have a wedding over the full weekend and spend as much time celebrating with all our family and friends. (I’m the kind of person who has a birth month not a birthday) The wedding venue (Northside Farm) allowed us to do just that in a beautiful setting. They were very laid back like us and just let us do our thing.”
