If you love colour and are searching for styling ideas for your wedding which are a little more interesting than most, today’s gorgeous wedding is perfect! The multicoloured hanging lanterns are spellbinding – alongside Alison’s ribbon decorations and pretty DIY touches, they make for a fabulous theme and colour palette!

“Our wedding was exactly what we wanted. Styling was colourful but simple. I love tulips so was set on these as my flowers. I pinned a lot of rustic type things but decided to put my own spin on things with colourful ribbon instead of twine and string.

Matara is beautiful and the hilarium is an amazing space to decorate. We decided on paper lanterns to hang along the aisle and in the dome and I didn’t want chair covers as chairs were lovely so we decided to hang ribbon on the backs to make it more interesting. The hilarium also has a gorgeous wall of fairy lights!

Weddings full of personality are the absolute best! Today’s gorgeous bride and groom had a relaxed, outdoor/festival style theme and being big cider lovers they incorporated this into the day. I adore the sunflowers and mixed wildflower bouquet and table arrangements – they add fun and sunshine in the loveliest way ever! And isn’t Nicola beautiful? Honestly, such a gorgeous couple and I’m thrilled to be sharing their wedding with you all today!

“We were privileged to have Kirsty Andrews from Escential Blooms do our flowers. An absolutely fantastic lady who is so great to work with and brings your ideas to life. We wanted wild flowers and Kirsty used those that were in season at the time. We didn’t want a set colour theme and Kirsty listened to this and used so many different colours with a range of beautiful smells! From the wedding arbour to the tables and the addition of flowers to the cake and table plan. Even some for my hair. Just stunning!

As the bluebells are almost out on the hillsides here in the Lakes, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous day with you. Tristan and Kayleigh had a beautiful woodland wedding in springtime, surrounded by bluebells and incorporating them into their theme. The bride and groom are just naturally beautiful – theirs could be my perfect wedding, I think. I just love the flowers, wooden decor and raffia which bring their natural spring wedding look together.

“The whole event was homemade with help from family. Stand out out pices were the bar, cake stand and the arch the ceremony was under. We also created a coloring book from some old photos for the children along with some sweets and disposable cameras.”

The style of Chell and Ben’s wedding is wonderful: this is a themed wedding done beautifully, and it’s a joy to scroll through their images! When this wonderfully sparkly, gold, glamorous wedding landed in my inbox I knew you’d adore every detail…

Gold, sparkly vintage glamour wedding at Woodhall Manor - Rose Images (8)

Oh my god I was obsessed with my wedding dress! We knew the theme we wanted almost straight away; Great Gatsby Glamour. I went online to search for 1920s style dresses and instantly fell in love with the Jenny Packham Eden dress in Platinum. It had 1920’s decadence but with a bridal twist. Effortlessly stylish and beautiful without being over the top. The detailing of all the sequins and beading made it stand out above all other dresses. I am still totally in love with it now and am always looking for 1920s events I can use as an excuse to wear it again. I’m even contemplating bringing it on our honeymoon to the Maldives so I can get some more beautiful photographs in it!

Wow!!! Today’s is a wedding which will grab your attention instantly! I absolutely loved the daytime portraits of Alice and James, and then the evening light transformed this day into something incredibly, unbelievably beautiful.

The loveliest golden hour bridal portraits you'll see - by Nicola Casey Photography (25)

We got married and had the reception at The Old Hall in Ely just outside of Cambridge. It’s a beautiful venue and we got married in their gazebo overlooking a lake and Ely cathedral.

The venue and scenery were so beautiful we didn’t need to worry about decorations too much as it was so beautiful itself. Our photographer Nicola Casey Photography did a great job capturing the surroundings in the photos, the fields ready for harvest, the tall reeds by the lakes, and our reflection across the water with the moody clouds above us.

I met nicola at work a couple of years earlier when she had started her journey as a second shooter at weddings.

Today’s lovely bride Ruth got in touch with me to show me her wonderfully creative woodland wedding to Stolly. They married this summer, celebrating in a woodland clearing – the space had nothing; they hired tipis and decorated the space themselves (along with lots of help from friends and family). I love how the woodland setting comes into its own in the evening, with fabulous lighting and areas for everyone to chat, dance and toast marshmallows around the fire! This is beautiful, free and goes to show there are no rules when it comes to wedding planning!

P&W Images shot this wonderfully colourful woodland wedding in the Cotswolds (11)

“I made all of our stationery, from detail on the name places to table name centrepieces and the mirror table plan and drinks list. I also painted signs on wood to decorate the trees – I love arts and crafts. I’m an interior designer so wanted a wedding that was a blank canvas that we could put our own stamp on. We love visiting Stolly’s family in the Cotswolds and wanted an outdoor wedding. We found the perfect woods near them but there was nothing there so we made everything beforehand: both families and my incredible bridesmaids helped us basically build a festival.

I love this wedding, the blues, the pretty bouquet and all of the wonderful handmade touches. Rachel and Damian are a gorgeous couple – and then there’s the venue. Oh, my word – what a fabulous space to celebrate in!!

open barn wedding with DIY decor in Surrey by Penny Young Photography (48)

“We were incredibly fortunate that a family friend, who lives next door to the church we got married in, offered her garden and barns to us. It was such a naturally beautiful and down-to-earth space that we knew without looking anywhere else that it was the place for us. We had the meal in an open barn and then the evening dancing and drinks were opposite in the old barn and marquees. It was very open to the elements and in the whole month leading up to the wedding it was incredibly wet and windy so there were lots of weather-proofing and contingency discussions but in the end we were very lucky with the weather!”

Genna and Sean’s wedding is so, so beautiful! The venue was covered in flowers, fairy lights and hanging lanterns (all handmade with love), with special touches created on site, made lovingly by friends and family. The venue itself has scenery which surrounded the Ceremony and Reception, making it extra special!

“Words can’t describe how happy we are that we chose Evolve Photography to capture the special moments on our Wedding day! Mark was absolutely fantastic, and clearly extremely passionate, as well as very talented at what he does. This made the day, and photos extremely enjoyable, and meant that we were able to just relax and enjoy our day. Mark was also able to capture the essence of both of us, and our bridal party and groomsmen – allowing the fun that we were having to show through in our photos, which was fantastic! Our photos turned out better than we could imagined, and we would highly recommend Evolve Photography to anyone who can snap him up!

Real wedding in Somerset photography by Jennifer Sinclair (19)

We didn’t have a theme as such…. Our key priority was having all the people there who we loved and who had looked out for us. Next it was making sure that we had really good food and drink. We both love cooking…and wine….as do our friends! We wanted our reception to feel like a big family meal, with our friends and family passing food around, chatting and enjoying. We went for a bit of an English-Italian fusion….. local Somerset Salami and buffalo mozzarella, Italian Parmesan, (local) Roast Beef and salads and our favourite wines that remind us of holidays.”

Nicola’s dress is from Ghost – she looks incredible and I really love her relaxed and effortlessly elegant style. The flowers are from a Bristol wholesale flower market, with some grown by Peter’s mother, and they made the beautiful arrangements together. The venue was decorated with lots of greenery from the couple’s garden, bunting borrowed from and made by friends… and an amazing disco ball which looks fantastic in the woodland setting!

Betty & Phil’s day stood out from others I covered last year as it seemed to be very simple in its delivery. The bride, the details, the location – all very classic, chic and English garden themed. From the Sassi Holford dress, to the idyllic thatched cottage B&B venue at the foothill of St Catherines chapel. The weather was perfect, the scene was stunning and the spirit of the couple and the people topped it all off.
