Hey lovelies! Friday at last and I’m smiling for lots of reasons this morning! 1 – I get to see my gorgeous boyfriend in a few hours’ time yay! 2 – it’s going to be March tomorrow and that means spring! and 3 – I’ve got a beautiful sunny wedding to share with you all today, thanks to gorgeous bride and groom Amy and Matt, and to Dorset wedding photographer Howard Lucas.

 

Dorset wedding blog by Howard Lucas Photography (29)I’ve never seen a wedding with a steam train before… but I’d love to see more! The bride and groom, and all of the wedding guests, travelled by train from the church to the reception. I love it – what a charming way to make your wedding one to remember! Oh but there’s also Amy’s divine wedding dress, the bright and charming bouquet, and the countryside charm of the village hall wedding venue with bright paper lanterns… you will LOVE this! Enjoy.

Did you miss yesterday’s unmissable vintage tea party wedding blog? Noooo… quickly, off you go and catch up right here: Laura and David’s Oriental vintage tea party wedding. Then come back because I’ve saved some extra images from the very lovely Hayley Ruth Photography to help show you how to get the same rustic vintage look for your own big day.

Laura and David hired a marquee for their big day but I think this look would work just as beautifully with a teepee or a barn wedding venue, don’t you? Here are the key pieces and projects which tied their gorgeous wedding style together. Hope you like!

rustic yellow vintage wedding ideas (1)The Tea Emporium at Laura and David’s wedding is a gorgeous idea – a healthier alternative to sweetie buffets, with softer colours than your average bonbon and an Oriental flavour – so to speak!

Laura and David are amazing – a gorgeous couple who poured their hearts and souls into crafting a unique, creative and inspiring wedding. They made paper fans as alternative bunting hung all the way across the roof of their wedding marquee, which was decorated with corn dollies, lavender, vintage china… it looks amazing. The table plan is an ornate vintage frame; the guest book is adorably vintage and surrounded by family wedding photos. Their overall look is beautifully rustic and lovely wedding photographer Hayley Ruth sent me so many detail images I’m coming back tomorrow morning with a second, bonus, Get The Look blog feature!

vintage tea party wedding blog  (1)

Laura has written an outstanding wedding report to share with us all, and it’s full of great advice, tips and stories for other brides and grooms as well as recommended wedding suppliers around Cambridgeshire. Oh and I love the story of how she and David met: on their first date after work they found themselves shaking hands on a spontaneous agreement to travel to Australia. 3 months later they went to Sydney together, and 7 years down the line they were married. And I’ve got all the images of their wedding to show you! Yay! Huge congratulations to a gorgeous couple, and big thanks to Laura and David, and to wedding photographer Hayley Ruth for submitting the images. Everyone – enjoy!

Morning beautiful 🙂 How are you today? I have another gorgeous wedding to share with you today, this time from the Dorset countryside and an adorable-looking wedding venue called Kingston Country Courtyard. If you’re having a barn wedding you will love this! Kingston has an 18th century stone barn with a bar attached… it sounds pretty perfect and looks amazing!

Rebecca is gorgeous in a silhouette lace wedding dress by La Sposa, and Andy looks great in a navy suit from Austin Reed. Oh, and the bridesmaids are as lovely as they are smiley… three ridiculously pretty girls in the lightest sage green dresses.

I hope you’ll get lots of ideas from today’s real wedding with rustic flowers, handmade bunting, a DIY Dad’s amazing cake stand and a delicious-looking naked cake with strawberries… you will LOVE this! Thanks to lovely Dorset wedding photographer Paul Underhill for sharing images of the day, and to the gorgeous bride and groom for such a fab wedding report. Everyone – enjoy!

Gorgeous bride Jenna and new hubby Oliver took on a mammoth task when they bought a beautiful country home, renovated it and then held their wedding in the garden just 5 months later! But what a glorious way to celebrate a marriage… their English country garden wedding is so charming and has tons of inspiring little homemade touches from friends and family.

English wedding blog Beth Moseley Photography (1)Jenna and her mother in law created miles of homemade bunting from vintage fabrics sourced from charity shops – a wonderful use for all those preloved old curtains and bedspreads 🙂 as well as recruiting the entire family to collect vintage crockery from charity shops and car boots, on which a delicious afternoon tea was served!

Hey again lovely! Don’t you just wish these cold mornings would go away and we could all wake to rays of sunshine peeping through our windows? I’m heading off on a little road trip across the Lake District this morning but had to share this gorgeous wedding blog with you before I leave!

Hoscote House wedding blog photography (1)

Gorgeous Hayley and David were married in Scotland at Hoscote House, and created their own tartan to style their day as well as roping in family and friends to help out. Their wedding is beautiful, personal and full of character – and their smiles are as good as those rays of sunshine we’re all missing right now! So relax, grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy this gorgeous wedding blog courtesy of my extremely talented friends Peter and Sara, wedding photographers at Pixies in the Cellar.

I love how today’s beautiful bride Claire describes her wedding, don’t you? She and Martin were married at The Hillbark Hotel on the Wirral, and chose lovely Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography as their wedding photographer. The images are wonderful and I’ve been so excited to share the wedding with you! What better way could there possibly be to begin the week?!

Wirral UK wedding blog Vickerstaff Photography (13)

The gypsophila (baby’s breath) bouquets and the bridesmaids’ flower crowns are lovely. Claire’s dress is stunning, and together she and Martin make a gorgeous couple. The venue is magnificent, dating back to 1891 and with that classic old English black and white Victorian front… oh! and can you believe they moved this wedding venue in 1930? All of it, brick by brick. Why? Because the owner’s wife wanted it in a different place! Now that’s devotion for you!

What perfect timing! When I first saw Caroline and Lee’s wedding on Samantha J‘s website I loved it, but had no idea their story began on Valentine’s Day… Then when I read Caroline’s wedding report I couldn’t believe the coincidence! Amazing that an anonymous Valentine’s card in the internal post can end so beautifully:

rustic barn wedding Samantha J Photography (1)So to all the non-believers out there, think again! Valentine’s Day is what you make it, and somehow I think Caroline and Lee will always remember Valentine’s Day for all the right reasons. I’m so very pleased to be able to share their pretty and rustic barn wedding with you all today. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Enjoy!

Jutta and Rob’s wedding in a rustic barn is relaxed, characterful and exciting. With plenty of DIY details and atmospheric photography by Barney Walters it really stands out from the crowd and I think it’s wonderful! Jutta wears a Phase Eight wedding dress, bought last minute – but she fell totally in love with it and looks stunning.

DIY country village wedding Barney Walters (1)The venue for the reception is a country farm barn which the bride and groom decorated to gorgeous effect with paper poms and a glitterball, long trestle tables and wooden chairs with hessian table runners.

Good afternoon lovely blog readers! I hope you’re having a good day… but if you’d like a little break from work come and join me for Chris and Naomi’s wedding from the Grange Hotel in York. It’s wonderfully warm and the venue is gorgeous – as are the bride and groom, of course! There’s plenty more to see on the Vogue Shot Photography website, with thanks to David Wade who’s written a little introduction to the day below. Enjoy!

Christmas time is a time for friends and family so it’s no surprise that having a wedding over the Christmas break is becoming more and more popular. This was the case for Chris and Naomi, they are both very family orientated and chose to have a small but elegant wedding on the 29th of December.

A friend of mine asked me last weekend which was the best wedding I’d seen recently, and I forgot to tell her about this one. For me personally, this is pretty unbeatable and it’s all down to the location chosen by beautiful bride Emma and her husband Tom. They married on the spectacular Isle of Skye and really made the most of their surroundings with their wedding photography.

Isle of Skye wedding by Love Skye (1)

What struck me when I first saw this wedding is Emma’s bridal look: she wears her hair up for the ceremony and looks fabulous, but standing looking out across the Isle of Skye for the portrait photos later with her hair loose she is one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen. Her secret? Keeping it real – falling in love with the landscape, choosing a location which literally means the world to her and Tom, and being herself.
