Gorgeous Scottish wedding ideas from London's Caledonian Club, with Ben Pipe Photography (8)
FEATURED

Today’s wedding is one of those stunning celebrations which mixes traditional elegance with contemporary flavour. Laura’s dress is divine – both bride and groom are gorgeous and the little details of their day, especially the Scottish touches, make it something really special. The venue is the Caledonian Club, and the photographer is lovely Ben Pipe Photography.

Our florist was Lalage Barran Flowers. Lalage was introduced to me by St Columba’s Church where we were married. I knew that I wanted lots of flowers and had a good idea of colours, but I know nothing about the types of flowers themselves so Lalage was excellent at guiding me. After a few meetings, she was able to create exactly what I had hoped for. Lalage also made a mock-up of my bouquet for me a few weeks before the wedding day which really helped to reassure me that it would look as I expected on the day.

Wedding of the century? Keye and James at Chapeldown with Steven Rooney Photography (17)

I guess if we could all describe our perfect wedding it would be something like this: fun, relaxed, gorgeously styled, games, drinks, full of personality, laughter, love, unique. Keye and James nailed all of those – and then some. They added circus and carnival, wow factor, fizz and flames. The opulent floral displays are breathtaking and the styling is oh-so-pretty and perfectly on trend. Their day is spectacularly styled with beautiful summer blooms, calligraphy signage, smoke bombs, brilliant outdoor games – and our gorgeous grooms look fantastic in matching outfits with waistcoats and bowties.

The list of ‘above and beyond’ styling details is just amazing. Stilt-walkers, fabulous carpets lining the walkways between tents, a harpist, an owl ring-bearer, personalised plastic sunglasses in a rainbow of colours (and glorious sunshine to go with!)… but you’ll see from the pictures how incredible a day this was!

Today’s featured wedding was a classic white wedding with the most beautiful church arch. A very relaxed elegant feel with lots of involvement from the family – and the prettiest florals you can imagine. I just love the archway covered in flowers and foliage by lovely Caroline, owner of Foxy Buds Floral Design – it makes the prettiest backdrop for photos and has a traditional feel to it which I think is wonderful.

The brief I gave my florist (Caroline at Foxy Buds) was “White with greenery presented in a natural/wild style.” And Foxy Buds completely delivered. I was really nervous before the big day because I had completely overdosed on Pintrest and Instagram and so I thought it would be impossible to bring that picture in my head to life. That nervousness was a complete waste of time – Caroline’s flowers were more beautiful that anything I had seen elsewhere. James and I constantly referred to the word “relaxed” when talking about what we wanted from our big day and that’s exactly the same feel I wanted (and got) from the flowers.

I love Rachael & Darren’s wedding – the dress code of black tie for all the guys makes it super gorgeous and I adore the venue – such a perfect fit with the elegant styling of the day! Our stunning bride and handsome groom styled the venue with lush creamy white hydrangeas and roses, candles, sequined table runners and mirrors.

The overall look is fabulously done: it’s elegant and timeless, and the black tie dress code makes it look so chic and decadent – reminiscent of 1920s old Hollywood style! Colour accents are kept really simple with gold and blush styling touches perfectly complementing the glamorous look of the beautiful bride and groom.

We met Jen and Mel at our friend’s wedding at Christmas 2015, we were blown away by their professionalism, friendly personalities and we loved how our friend’s photographs looked. By chance I was at a wedding fair with my mum in the January and Memories and Milestones has a stall, they remembered me from the wedding and had our date available, we booked on the spot.

If you love summer flowers and dream of an opulent, gloriously fragrant summer bouquet – then today’s wedding is going to blow your mind! The flowers are exquisite – and then some. Beautiful bride Hannah is breathtaking in full lace sleeves and a glorious Caroline Castigliano gown while her rather gorgeous groom Will is every bit the country gentleman.

Their marquee wedding has the loveliest styling ideas with hanging floral decoration, huge centrepieces full of colour and even blossom trees to create the country garden look. The table plan is my fave with prettily folded cards set amongst yet more florals catching prettily in the breeze.

All of the flowers were styled by lovely Susie Hart of Hart Company, who brought together peonies, hydrangeas, roses and cornflowers to create the pretty bouquets for Hannah and her bridesmaids. Hydrangeas were key in the hanging chandeliers, which incorporated foliage and tender ferns for a looser shape and wonderful texture.

Green fields, fairy lights and delicate flowers in her hair… Becky and Rob’s marquee wedding is all kinds of beautiful. Acres of countryside borrowed from Becky’s godfather meant they had the perfect location for a relaxed country celebration, and it looks divine. And oh, that dress….

I’ve known Fiona through the English Wedding Blog for years. She’s an absolute gem of the wedding world – a super talented photographer and one of those genuinely lovely people whose emails can brighten up an entire week. So when Fiona sent me images of her and David’s very own wedding, I instantly knew I had to share it with all of you – and oh my, it’s just so beautiful!

“I loved our wedding, perhaps most of all because we had such a beautiful ceremony. I had a lovely friend who is a priest perform the ceremony, and we got married in a gorgeous private Catholic chapel owned by the Tempest family for ten centuries. While I was saying my vows I looked up at my husband (who is very tall) and noticed the ceiling, which was covered with blue and gold stars. It felt almost as if we were saying our vows under heaven! We also had a blessing for my son, Leo.”

I thought we’d end the bank holiday weekend with something insanely beautiful. One peek at today’s wedding and you will be hooked!! (Oh – I have to quickly remind all of you lovely wedding suppliers that today is the last day to join the English Wedding Directory for just £30 – click here to find out how!) And now for our incredible wedding… bride Esha is stunning!!! I adore both of her wedding dresses (the red evening dress is a knockout!), her hair and beautiful henna and the bouquet is breathtaking! – and Rehan’s whole look is wonderful (the detailing and embroidery on his jacket is fabulous. More grooms should look this good!!) It’s a fantastic day with amazing details – there is so much here to inspire you, I just can’t stop looking through all of the beautiful pictures.

“When it came to planning the wedding, I spent a lot of time Googling suppliers and getting inspiration from Pinterest. I had a clear vision of what I wanted and so set about creating boards which helped me to visualise and share the look with suppliers. I have lots of creatives in my family, and so I pulled them in to help make personalised decorations with the theme in mind. I cannot thank them enough for their help!

This weekend has me full of thoughts of spring, newness, life and nature – I’m kind of a closet pagan and so Ostara is my thing at this time of year. I’d love to wish you all a happy weekend of reflection, family, chocolate and flowers! Oh, and if you have a wedding business don’t forget you have today and tomorrow to sign up to be a member of the English Wedding Directory for just £30 this weekend!

But first… today’s beautiful bride Charlotte and Adam were married at the beautiful local church in Burleydam, Whitchurch and then had a stunning marquee reception. I love all the gold styling, and their tablescapes are unreal… plus, Charlotte’s bouquet is unique and so, so pretty.

Gorgeous bride Natalie and her husband Raja were married in the Houses of Parliament in June, their reception was in the gardens of the historic and very romantic Chiswick House. This is a very stylish city wedding that had big wows. Natalie walked down the aisle to the chimes of Big Ben turning 12pm, totally magical. They beat the usual bus tours and had all the guests hop on a boat which went down the River Thames past all the big sights of London then on to the reception.

I tried on several dresses and doubted ever experiencing the feeling of finding the ‘one’. Claire Pettibone‘s Viola was a unique and beautiful design which I hadn’t seen anywhere else before. As soon as I tried it on, I knew it was perfect and though I had other appointments booked, no other dresses compared.

My flowers were provided by Wild about Flowers. My bouquet was made up of burgundy dendrobiums, burgundy peonies and magnolia spray roses. The bridesmaids all had a beautiful simple bouquet of cream peonies and the two flower girls carried flower wands.

Tis the season (as they say) for cosy snuggles and warm fires… and for staying indoors on those long evenings in the company of friends and loved ones. And I guess this applies just as much to weddings as it does to winter evenings at home. For Deborah and Mark, their winter wedding meant choosing the right venue was paramount. And boy, did they get it right…

Huntsham Court is a fabulous wedding venue - real wedding Jennifer Jane Photography (7)

Huntsham Court is wonderful. It’s an exclusive use, country house venue with 34 bedrooms and a super flexible approach to weddings. For today’s bride and groom it meant they could spend the whole weekend there along with friends and family – Huntsham is the loveliest home from home you could ever imagine.

Jennifer Jane’s photography style is wonderfully romantic, natural and fresh – I’ve always loved sharing her summer weddings on the blog so this day has been really wonderful to share with you. The images are sublime, with such warmth and character making the most of the soft lighting at Huntsham Court – I adore them.

Today’s real wedding is one of those timeless celebrations which I know I can blog now, and brides in 2025 will still be turning to it for inspiration. It’s sheer luxe and so beautiful – Rebecca is breathtaking, her husband Dominic looks fabulous, and the venue is out of this world! Wow.

The venue was magnificent and required minimal decoration. Our florist decorated both the day and evening rooms. The evening venue was the Queen Mary Undercroft at the Naval College which had pillars in it. Our florist put fairy lights and ivory up around the pillars and we had two large pedestal flower sprays which were at the entrance.
