Today’s elegantly styled wedding comes from Caswell House in the Cotswolds. Beautiful bride Kelley has written the loveliest interview for us and shared her recommendations for Cotswolds wedding suppliers, which will be unmissable reading for any of you lovely brides and grooms-to-be in the region. I adore the unusual florals with such a unique colour palette, Kelley’s gorgeous dress and the romantic atmosphere of the day. Images are by Jessica Davies, who told me “I loved the way that Kelley embraced the wintry theme, with a sprinkling of darker, seasonal florals and warming candles, yet managed to also keep everything feeling light and romantic, with the beautiful Cotswold’s stone, pale grey bridesmaids dresses and inclusion of baby’s breath flowers. Family was a huge part of the wedding, and Kelley’s father spent weeks designing and making the personalised wooden ring box which you’ll see in the photographs. Overall, I think it was one of the most smiley, joyful weddings I’ve ever captured.” ~ Jessica Davies Photography
This will brighten up your Wednesday – I promise! I’m totally in love with today’s wedding from The Copse, and Daisy and Will are just gorgeous – in fact everything about their wedding is just perfect from Daisy’s dress (wow!!) to the florals and greenery. Images are by English Wedding Directory member and super talented Essex wedding photographer Craig Williams – whose website and instagram are both wonderfully addictive!
Elise and Rajiv’s Caswell House wedding is perfect: elegant styling and classy touches make their day wonderfully pretty and perfect for the 15th century manor house. They make the most gorgeous couple, don’t you think? This is ever so beautiful and I know you’ll love it. Huge thanks to our lovely sponsor Carol Elizabeth Photography and to the stunning bride and groom for their words of wisdom and advice!
“We had a holiday theme with an asian twist. All our tables were named after South East Asian Islands and we also had Asian lounge music in the background. The reason for that was because we met in Malaysia and the start of our relationship was spent travelling in different places in South East Asia.
Autumn wedding styling isn’t all about the pine cones, you know. I get it: they’re cute little things, with a dash of childhood nostalgia attached… but I think after years upon years of pine cone wedding styling they’re about to be pushed from the top spot – by the humble gourd!
So many wedding traditions and styling ideas start in the US and gradually make their way over here. With all the budding excitement of Hallowe’en they start their pumpkins early over there… and the mini versions (gourds is a catch-all term for anything pumpkinesque, in my simple mind!) are colourful, cute and charming as hell. I love how Kate and Ali used them to style their day.
Josie and Simon’s wedding is just fabulous: the colour they created in every aspect of their day is just wonderful for a January wedding. Peacock feathers look stunning in a British flower bouquet; herbs as favours and place settings are perfect, and I adore Josie’s gorgeously vibrant wedding dress – you’ll love this!
