Hannah and Terence had decided throughout their planning that they wanted a very relaxed day – they weren’t fussed about formality or traditions, they simply wanted a day of celebration. They managed to do this so well, the whole day felt very natural with real joy. It was a beautiful day, but so cold and Hannah and Terence were real troopers going outside throughout the day so I could do my thing. I loved that Hannah wanted to keep Terence’s jacket on for their portraits – it made it feel completely real.

Happy Sunday lovelies! I hope you’re looking forward to a relaxing day – but before you head out anywhere, I have one of the loveliest summer weddings to inspire you today! Jess & Jon’s wedding took place at a pretty Surrey church with a reception at the beautiful Ewshot Hall in Farnham. It was an elegant but relaxed country house wedding with a beautiful colour palette of soft muted greys, whites and pinks.

Gill Pike was my florist. She is amazing. I gave her my themes and colours and let her work her magic with very little input. The flower arch looked stunning.

Danielle and Andy’s wedding is the prettiest floral celebration I’ve seen – with fabulous peonies and the prettiest pink details, it’s wonderful inspiration for a classic summer celebration. I adore Danielle’s hair – her loose plait with tiny flowers is so, so beautiful – I hope you love this wedding as much as I do!

We decided on peony and roses in pink shades as we loved the romantic look and feel of them. We wanted the flowers to compliment and fit in with the venue, so had the floristry done through Narborough Hall Gardens, who grew and arranged all our flowers. The flowers were part of what made the day for us as they were so beautiful, with candelabra and teapot displays, amazing bouquets and a beautiful willow bower and flowers lining the aisle in shepherd crook jars.

Hello there lovelies! Today we have a classic English wedding full of bright florals to inspire autumn and winter brides. I love the vibrance of the flowers, and beautiful bride Ruth is just stunning, don’t you think?

Lauren and Aaron’s wedding is so beautiful – and as hydrangeas are in season for most of the summer months, there are some wonderful ideas here for weddings from June through to mid autumn which I think you will LOVE!!

Our wedding flowers were hydrangeas. A very talented friend of the groom’s family arranged all the flowers from centre pieces to bridal bouquets. They were absolutely stunning and all fitted perfectly in the wooden boxes made by the father of the bride.
