Theatre venues are special: the atmosphere is already awesome but once your guests are seated there’s such a buzz of anticipation… I absolutely love them to bits! Hannah and Rik set the scene for their day (apologies for the stage pun!) with brilliant big letters and made their wedding exciting, theatrical and generally amazing from beginning to end.

See what I mean?

The venue is Ilkley’s Kings Hall and Winter Gardens – a fabulous period theatre in the heart of Yorkshire’s charming spa town. Letters are by Glow Love Lights (these are the best: handmade by a master carpenter and for hire across the UK) and images are by lovely Leeds-based Paul Joseph Photography. (Congratulations to lovely Kelly, one half of the photography business, who is the new star blogger at Boho Weddings Blog!)

When Alexandra met Lewis she was dressed as a devil. He was wearing “a 12 year old’s skeleton suit”… and they fell in love! They were married in June and their wedding is one of the loveliest classic English weddings I’ve seen. Alexandra looks divine in a Sassi Holford gown while Lewis is fabulous in a Reiss suit. Their theme was vintage travel, styled around a red post box which I love.

With stationery by Lucy Says I Do and fabulous flowers by Caroline Hodges, the styling of this lovely Devon wedding is classy and colourful. I love all the little details – and the portraits of gorgeous Alexandra and Lewis are just so romantic!

Rebecca and Howard have the most relaxed approach to wedding planning I’ve seen – the preparations took “about 6 months”, they spent as little as possible and rather than having a theme they styled their country style wedding day with the things they liked… including 1950s music, natural flowers (which I adore!) oh, and Landrovers!

Howard looks the part in a proper English bowler hat – I love it! And Rebecca is simply stunning in a gorgeous lace sleeved dress by Ellis Bridals. The images are wonderful, and the story of this wedding is one I love. It’s a simple, natural and relaxed wedding – from start to finish. It can take months and months of preparation to make a wedding look rustic, natural and simple… or it can actually be all of those things! Rebecca and Howard’s wedding is genuine and all the more beautiful for it.

Next time you pass a field, consider it as your wedding venue! It might need a bit of work as far as decor and styling goes, you might need a little cover in case it rains on the day, and it could appear a huge challenge at first…. but if you’re enthusiastic about a DIY outdoor wedding then this is an amazing story you’ll want to read!

Faye and Trevor had a rustic wedding in a field in Berkshire, where they celebrated with a handfasting ceremony and treated guests to a beautiful marquee reception. Faye is absolutely stunning; Trevor looks fab in his pale suit and together they make the most gorgeous couple! They’re talented too, and with all their friends created a magical, musical wedding I think is incredible!!

I can’t imagine how exciting it must feel for winter brides and grooms as the leaves start falling from the trees… the first frost instantly reminds me of snow and cosy nights in… and winter weddings.

Howling Basset was the Kent wedding photographer for Katie and Aaron’s lovely country wedding. They were married at St Peter & St Paul’s Church in Borden and then over to the delightful Frasers Coldharbour Farm for the reception. It was important to them that all the suppliers used and decorations etc were sourced within the UK. The boys’ suits were especially cool; Aaron wanted tweed but with a summer wedding it’s just too heavy a material so after scouring the country he found a bespoke tailor in Walsall to make their suits. Very dapper indeed.

Katie and Aaron had a beautiful woodland engagement shoot last year – you can click here to see some of their engagement photos but for today I hope you’ll enjoy this perfect eco friendly Kent wedding!

Salmestone Grange wedding of Charlotte and Richard

The wonderful Salmestone Grange in Margate Kent was the setting for Charlotte and Richard’s big day. They married in the ancient, small and intimate Salmestone Chapel then after photos it was off to nearby Manston for the reception in a friend’s garden. Two marquees one for the food and the other for the entertainment, oh and a home built Gin Palace too.

Nathan and Vikki are adorable, gorgeous and oh so stylish – and their wedding reflects their personalities so perfectly, I can’t wait to show you this! They married at Braxted Park and chose the fabulous Liam Smith Photography to capture their day. Vikki’s bridal look is amazing – she’s so beautiful. Nathan shed a tear as she walked down the aisle, and can you blame him? They make a perfect pair, and the images of their day are some of the very best. Absolutely wonderful…

Liam loved shooting this wedding: “Nathan and Vikki were blessed with the most outrageous sunshine to compliment their beautifully designed and crafted wedding… I love the shots we managed to get in the grounds, the colours are just epic.

The moment I saw Hannah and Dean’s wedding photos I fell in love. Such an amazing couple, and such a beautiful day. Their Great Gatsby wedding at Kent’s Chilston Park Hotel is one of the most elegant celebrations I’ve seen, with fabulous styling and glorious details. But it’s the bride and groom – a stunning couple – who bowled me over. Hannah’s bridal look is more than gorgeous: her striking make up, her beautiful gown – she’s incredible. Although one comment on photographer Kerry Ann Duffy‘s facebook page made me chuckle: “Great pic, even better beard“… Dean’s look is fantastic and then some!

Hannah has written a great wedding report for us all today – full of brilliant advice, and wonderfully honest. She shares great budgeting tips, has an interesting story about dress shopping, and recommends some excellent Kent wedding suppliers. I love that she forgot to throw her bouquet… and was delighted that meant she could keep it! I would be too… it’s beautiful!

Pete and Claire are one of those couples who instantly make me smile. They’re a perfect match, absolutely gorgeous and their smiles warm my heart. They styled a rustic barn wedding at The Barn at South Milton, and together with family and friends created a wonderful day full of personality and charm.
