I adore Kerry’s dress and bouquet and how today’s gorgeous bride and groom are both smiling, grinning and laughing all day long. Kerry & James’ wedding was perfect – the sun shone gloriously on what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year so far and Kerry looked ridiculously stunning in her blush pink gown.

“We knew that the location was going to just speak for itself, but we did a fair bit of decorating for the tables and the venue with our heirloom bunting (thanks Mary and Pat and ladies at patchwork!) as well as the map which James put together. I designed and made the chalkboard as well as the seating plan and the welcome board. I was pretty pleased with the efforts. The guys at The Chequers did a wonderful job of the tables and venue. I just made sure I was organised! I also had photos of our family from their own weddings which was a nice touch.

Let’s start this week on a high, shall we? Gorgeous Katherine and Nick’s wedding at Cleatham Hall has everything: the most amazing bouquet, a breathtaking dress and the loveliest of details to share with you. It’s fabulous and the perfect pick me up for all of our Mondays!!

Katherine’s interview is ace – don’t miss it at the end of the blog post if you’re getting married this year. I love her words of wisdom: “Stay true to both your styles and choose the things that you like . Everyone says ‘it will always come together ‘ when you are at your most stressed times with planning and they are so right. After the day, you’ll have no idea why you were so worried.”

“From the moment we met Richard and Christine we knew they were the photographers for us. They were so warm, friendly and honest. Our engagement shoot- although nerve wracking – produced such stunning images and we are overjoyed with our wedding images.

Wedding fairs can either be a lovely day out with your Mum and bridesmaids… or a hellish frenzy of wedding salespeople pushing teeth whitening…. it’s why I’ve deliberately avoided the big shows for the last few years. But some do it beautifully. I do believe a wedding fair should be a welcoming day full of ideas – these days it’s all about the experience and I wanted to show you some photos of how it can be done well!

So welcome (virtually) to Tilly’s Garden Party Hire! Tilly’s have an amazing large marquee with a barn wall end, which is different from the norm and has a relaxed countryside look. They invited a bunch of suppliers – one from each section of the industry – to set up the venue like a wedding day, to give couples the vision and inspiration of what their day could look like.

When lovely Jessy Jones got in touch to show me Tom and Natalie’s day I was so excited – honestly, their day is just so pretty and perfect to share with you here. The bride and groom are gorgeous: the flower crown is super sweet and I LOVE the daisies – I hope you will too! Oh, and did I mention the awesome golden dinosaurs? 😉

“We didn’t really have a theme – we wanted the wedding to reflect us both. Flowers were a big part of our wedding, particularly daisies and roses, with zombies, dinosaurs and mermaids thrown in!

Throughout the wedding planning I was most certain about what style of bouquet I wanted and I knew I needed to get the right florist to get the look I wanted. When I met Sharon at a wedding fair I knew she got what I wanted. We had several meetings – I changed my mind several times but we got there in the end. Out of everything I was so excited to see what my flowers would look like – I was not disappointed: the flowers, the flower crown… everything was perfect. Sharon was absolutely lovely as well. I would recommend her to anyone – she really goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. www.sharonsflowerhouse.co.uk

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re ready for something really lovely… today’s Lincolnshire wedding is so so beautiful. I love Rebecca’s stunning dress (she’s just sooo beautiful!) and George’s beard – between the two of them this is just a perfect wedding for the blog and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

“We met while studying fine art at uni so it seemed a bit of a no-brainer to make our own stationery. George made the drawings for our invitations, order of service and table plan, while I made the layouts and put them together. It was pretty time consuming but we spend a lot of time making stuff anyway, and it was great because we got to include lots of little details and a lot of lavender!”

Batemans Brewery wedding blog from Lincolnshire with 166 Photography (16)

The flowers were peach and cream roses with rosemary, freesia and lavender. Our local florist, P and N Pitchers in Alford, Lincolnshire, provided the bouquet, bridesmaids flowers and buttonholes for us. We decorated the church with potted lavender plants and the table decorations were provided by the venue, with masses of cream roses, hessian and lace.

This is an absolutely perfect blog post – the flowers are so vibrant and colourful, and the mossy details are fab. I adore the fireplace, so full of colour – and the portraits of beautiful bride Hannah & her new husband Matt outside Woodhall Spa Manor are wonderful.

Our flowers were multi coloured and summery – truly breath taking – they were by Flowers by Suzanne. I added a few personal touches of my own creation, including a timeline of the day on an old mirror painted with chalk paint (borrowed from my cousin’s wedding) and a fingerprint tree guest book I made from an online template. I absolutely loved putting these few things together; luckily I am a teacher so had a few weeks before the wedding in the holidays to do all of this.

I love Jo and Ed’s wedding for its elegant, relaxed styling and the timelessly beautiful images – they married in late spring and chose seasonal flowers alongside the loveliest little touches to flavour their day. The ceremony at Doddington Hall is incredible: the reception full of country charm. I love their homemade honey favours (their own bees… how lovely is that?!) and the pretty florals used throughout the day. Claire

“We hired the ‘Long Gallery’ at Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire, a beautiful room with huge paintings and a grand piano. It needed little decoration as its splendour spoke for itself. The room held 200 guests and created a long isle. We had a drinks reception in the coach house next to the main hall with an acoustic band within the walled gardens. Our reception was held at the family ostrich farm in Nottinghamshire, 20 minutes from Doddington Hall.

I do love Emma & Alex’s wedding! The details are gorgeous, they’re just such a lovely couple, I love how simple and elegant Emma’s dress is… and right up to the last image of Emma on stage, it’s kept me smiling as I scrolled through all of their beautiful images. You’ll love it too… get your Pinning fingers ready, because the blog is bursting with gorgeous ideas today!

“Crafts & makes were my favourite part of wedding planning! I could not wait to start decorating and crafting! I sewed the bridesmaids gifts bags myself and filled them with goodies for the day and a little thank you gift. We collected and decorated champagne corks with ribbon and flowers for the tables as well as an assortment of glass jars for the flowers. I even made a post box for the cards. We raided my parents shed for old pieces of furniture and bits and bobs to create a big display in the marquee.

The flowers are as timeless as can be – while our passion for dahlias, peonies and hydrangeas comes and goes, our love of the classic English rose never fades. Laura and Chris’s wedding is beautiful, full of roses and in one of our favourite stately home venues: Hemswell Court. You’ll love today’s feature – it’s sooo pretty, so romantic…and there are some giggles too. Enjoy! Claire xx

When Laura and Chris explained what they were going to be doing, I thought they were a little mad. They’d just emigrated to Australia and were coming back to the UK for 2 weeks, just to get married! The wedding was such a massive celebration, with friends and family from all over – lots of Australian and Irish accents, with some people coming from as far away as Lincoln!

Nestle into your sofa, sink back into your work chair, cradle that cup of tea and prepare to fall in LOVE with today’s beautiful wedding on the blog. Charlotte just looks amazing; Joe is as tall, dark and handsome as can be, and they married in the loveliest venue you can imagine. I love this wedding for the stunning images – also for Charlotte’s wonderful advice and tips for other brides and grooms. Don’t break yourself over DIY; don’t panic over details, do whatever feels right for YOU and plan to really enjoy your best day yet.

Try and savour the moments throughout the day, it really does go so quickly and by the end of it you will be absolutely exhausted but enjoy every single minute. Don’t worry about the small things: the days before the wedding I was losing sleep over how we were going to display the table plan and what the napkins would look like but on the day those things really didn’t matter. As long as you have food, music and your dress sorted you are good to go!

Bethany and Harry’s wedding has that timeless English beauty I love more than anything: exquisite flowers, a Jenny Packham designer dress – described by Bethany as her epiphany moment – and is set in the most incredible venue. From the very moment I saw their images I was hooked.

And I just can’t stop looking at them! Wow…. the flowers are such a statement feature of this glorious wedding. Bethany’s job is for a major flower business, and she enlisted the very best florist to style the arrangements for her day. Your Pinterest fingers are going to hurt when you’ve finished this blog feature, I promise…. toooo beautiful.

I love the romance of soft pink and vintage lace. I love the old English charm of a proper red telephone box, and I love Nic and Ben’s wedding because it has all of these and more. Today’s gorgeous couple were married in the summer at Holme Hall golf club in Lincolnshire and chose wedding photographer Pete Barnes for his relaxed photography style.Lincolnshire wedding blog Pete Barnes (1)

Nichola says, “We had the best day ever, the weather was not looking great all morning, but it was perfect by the time I had to go to the church, the sun came out and was beautiful. We still talk about it every day and 3 months on we would do it again in a heartbeat.”

I can see why – this is a beautiful wedding day and I’m so pleased I can share it with you here today! Enjoy x
