Hey there beautiful! So today is an ideas day. We’re so full of ideas for a festival wedding I really don’t know where to start. This is a joyful celebration full of everything from English country fete to sustainable wedding style, all at Greenwood Grange in Dorset. There are old fashioned wooden skittles and garden games – not forgetting the old classic ‘hook a flamingo’ (or something!). There’s a cake table which reminds me of our annual village show – and they’re ALL winners! There’s a children’s party field and – from the handprinted signs – a secret midnight rave.
A fabulous tipi celebration in the height of summer. A gorgeous, relaxed and head-over-heels in love couple. Rustic styling, tons of florals, vibrant colours and a party atmosphere. It really doesn’t get much better than this! Howard and Rowena’s wedding venue was the village field in Iwerne Minster, the village where Rowena’s mother lives. By day the field is a football pitch and on a sunny day in August it was transformed with the addition of tipis into their wedding venue! I hope you love this one as much as I do. Huge thanks to Rowena and Howard, and to our fabulous friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography. Do read the groom’s interview below – the story of their day is fantastic!

Today’s wedding is another treat; a beautiful celebration with stunning florals and styling – but most importantly for me, with a brilliant sense of humour and some amazingly fun moments. Sarah and Michael were married at Mapperton House in Dorset, and opted for a vibrant colour palette and gorgeous styling touches. The bouquet is a stunner: orange tones and corals alongside blues with roses and dahlia blooms, cornflowers and agapanthus, freesias (I think!) and sweet peas.
How is your week going? Do you have sunshine? It’s been beautiful here… I think spring is my favourite season of all when it’s like this! I could almost be on my laptop in the garden right now!
We’ve had a week of beautiful weddings and features, and today’s is a real favourite: the relaxed and elegant styling is fabulous; Lucy & James are gorgeous and their day looks so much fun. It’s all beautifully captured by our friend and outstanding Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography.
I LOVE that we’ve been able to tell you about some wonderfully creative and sustainable / ethical wedding suppliers on the blog this week. If you missed Thursday’s blog do take a peek at the beautiful Sanyukta Shrestha dresses we featured here. Today I’m really excited to share a wedding style photoshoot from a group of like-minded Dorset wedding suppliers who came together to create a sustainable and eco-friendly wedding look.
