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…
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.
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.
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!
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!!
“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!”
I messed up: this gorgeous wedding slipped through my net on the back of the most amazing wedding cake… and so we’re featuring an Australian wedding (first time!) on the English Wedding Blog. Oops! But oh, you’re going to love me for it, I promise!
See what I mean?!
While you may not be able to book the suppliers from Ailsa and Phil’s special day (unless you’re heading to Oz for a destination wedding, you lucky thing!) you will most certainly fall in love with all of the ideas from this stunning cinema wedding.
