As a girl with a freely admitted paper fetish, I do love to see a shoot where deliciously designed stationery takes centre stage. (And because I’m totally skill-less with flower arranging, I adore it when beautifully styled flowers share the limelight!) So today’s bright, springtime wedding style inspiration is just so lovely to share with you. I hope it brightens your heart and your day as much as it does mine!

Jess and John’s day was rainy – it didn’t stop; and it didn’t matter. They chose a magnificent venue in Wentworth Woodhouse, and the images of their day are as stunning as can be. The focus was on friends and family, celebration and love. This is a classic English wedding, a reminder that simplicity and elegance can create a truly beautiful day.

“Something I found was that it’s the little touches that make a wedding completely personal and special to you. We had old photos of us around the venue, a personalised cake topper, I put a basket in the ladies toilet with essentials in and provided flip flops for anyone with tired feet. A lot of these ideas were from Pinterest or I took as inspiration from other peoples weddings.


I LOVE this wedding – Amy and Dan had the best homemade table plan I’ve ever seen! I adore the idea of a spot of wild swimming (crazy!) and all the flowers, personal touches with stationery… and Amy’s dress is just wonderful. This is beautiful, country charm at its very best and I hope you fall in love with their day as much as I have!

The ideas here will inspire creative brides and grooms – and the beautiful images will make your eyes ever so happy. Amy is a breathtaking bride, Dan her perfect match. Their day is one which speaks to my heart with personal touches, individuality and romance.


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.

Two of my very best friends were married at this adorable little barn wedding venue in 2016. It was wonderful to see the place again when lovely Siobhan and Andrew’s wedding appeared in my inbox… the fairy lights took me right back to my friends’ wedding. Those of you who’ve been following the blog for a little while will know I live on the edge of the Lake District; the mountains are my second home and so today’s real wedding couldn’t be more perfect for the beginning of the year.
