You don’t need 100 or more people to watch him put a ring on your finger. You don’t need the stress of a wedding table plan, huge corkage fees or to spend your day in a crowd of distant cousins. All you really need is you. Intimate weddings with only a handful of guests are my favourite, and beautiful bride Liz and Richard’s day is simply perfect. Don’t you just love that Jenny Packham dress?

“We looked for Kent based photographers online and after looking through a lot of photography we came across Helen’s website and we knew it was the relaxed style we wanted. We contacted Helen to arrange meeting her at a wedding fayre and we instantly clicked – we knew she’d be great at blending in and capturing our special moments.

As the bluebells are almost out on the hillsides here in the Lakes, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous day with you. Tristan and Kayleigh had a beautiful woodland wedding in springtime, surrounded by bluebells and incorporating them into their theme. The bride and groom are just naturally beautiful – theirs could be my perfect wedding, I think. I just love the flowers, wooden decor and raffia which bring their natural spring wedding look together.

“The whole event was homemade with help from family. Stand out out pices were the bar, cake stand and the arch the ceremony was under. We also created a coloring book from some old photos for the children along with some sweets and disposable cameras.”

Today’s wedding is absolutely stunning: full of vibrant flowers and filled with colour in every corner. Gorgeous bride and groom Amy & Tim love travelling, which is something they incorporated into their colourful wedding theme. The guest globe is genius; the table plan wonderful, the cake prettily perfect – and there’s so much more to this fantastic wedding, I know you’ll love it!

“Our wedding was very ‘us’ – everything we love and everyone we love all together on the perfect summer’s day. There was a summery, boho, chilled out vibe with the added burst of colour and vibrancy we love from our travels and that make summer so happy and full of life. A perfect day for us is fun, relaxed, full of music, laughter, food, cocktails and dancing under the sun and the stars – and that’s exactly what we did.”

Ria and Jordan’s day is so prettily styled with the loveliest spring flowers – their barn venue is one I haven’t seen or featured on the blog before and I’ve fallen head over heels for this place – I hope you will too!

My wedding flowers were simple and pretty! I was showing my auntie one day what I was thinking of doing just in general conversation. (She is not a florist, but we all call her green fingers as gardening is her favourite hobby and she has an allotment!) She suggested I could do them myself so I asked her if she would help and luckily she did! People kept asking all day who my flowers were by! My bridesmaids had simple gypsophila which my auntie also made, I had my bouquet made by Robert in the flower station in North Chingford London. It was just perfect.

Our wedding was at Pledgdon Barn, Bishops Stortford. The barn was built in the Tudor era. It had been looked after amazingly and the character of the venue was very stong and beautiful. We still remember walking in viewing it for the first time, it took our breath away.

More than anything else I value true craftsmanship and style in the wedding industry. Mass-produced, bland styling touches turn me cold… but show me breathtaking style from independent designers and I fall head over heels in love. Today’s wedding inspo comes from the very best: creatives, artisans and designers whose work I truly adore.

A few simple – but beautifully crafted – details can go a long way on your wedding day. Choose statement pieces and use them sparingly: a stunning dress; a unique and different bouquet and hair accessory – these are the details which will make you feel incredible and ensure your day is truly special. The blue dress is Eden by Claire Pettibone – a stunning favourite from her beautiful Couture Collection, supplied by Yorkshire’s White Room Bridal Boutique. Paper magnolias and the stunning floral hair accessories are by designer and illustrator Amy Swann.

Individual, fun and full of colour and personality - a real wedding at Nyland Manor (31)

The colourful, happy vibe of Lucy and Steve’s wedding is just how I’d imagine the perfect wedding to be. Perfection isn’t about colour palettes or a theme, it’s not even about the day running to schedule or being stress free: the perfect wedding is one where everyone is smiling from beginning to end, where the dancefloor is full, where the best memories are unplanned, unexpected and all the more amazing for it. Today’s gorgeous bride Lucy and super handsome groom Steve show us exactly how it’s done…

We made up the flowers ourselves! This was one of my favourite parts of the wedding prep! Our venue didn’t need much decoration but the marquee did! We did this all ourselves, with help from work colleagues, friends and family. We made almost everything! Table centres, the favours, extra bits that went around the venue! I loved doing all of this.

When lovely Jessy Jones got in touch to show me Tom and Natalie’s day I was so excited – honestly, their day is just so pretty and perfect to share with you here. The bride and groom are gorgeous: the flower crown is super sweet and I LOVE the daisies – I hope you will too! Oh, and did I mention the awesome golden dinosaurs? 😉

“We didn’t really have a theme – we wanted the wedding to reflect us both. Flowers were a big part of our wedding, particularly daisies and roses, with zombies, dinosaurs and mermaids thrown in!

Throughout the wedding planning I was most certain about what style of bouquet I wanted and I knew I needed to get the right florist to get the look I wanted. When I met Sharon at a wedding fair I knew she got what I wanted. We had several meetings – I changed my mind several times but we got there in the end. Out of everything I was so excited to see what my flowers would look like – I was not disappointed: the flowers, the flower crown… everything was perfect. Sharon was absolutely lovely as well. I would recommend her to anyone – she really goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. www.sharonsflowerhouse.co.uk

As a girl with a freely admitted paper fetish, I do love to see a shoot where deliciously designed stationery takes centre stage.

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!

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!

Kimberley and Francesco’s wedding is wonderfully sophisticated with an Italian twist. I love it when grooms look a little different, and Francesco’s black suit and dickie bow are just wonderful!

Kimberley is so very beautiful – her lacy dress is gorgeous and the details of the day are really pretty and romantic – the soft pinks of the roses, the prettily styled wedding cake… this all adds up to a classic, feminine English wedding – and it’s lovely.

My wedding flowers were soft whites and pinks, mainly roses – they were arranged by Oops a Daisy in Cirencester. They were great as I wasn’t sure what I wanted but they sat with me and showed me the different flowers we could have and how they looked together.

We used bright spring colours for our flowers – peaches, lilacs, yellows & pinks. James from Detta Phillips is brilliant – they looked spectacular.

Don’t miss Chris and Annie’s wise advice (and genuine supplier recommendations) for you lovely lot, which you’ll find just after the photos if you scroll through the full feature today. “We designed and made our wedding stationery ourselves. It was a really enjoyable experience and we were really proud of our handiwork once they were finished. We made place cards and table plan in the same style as the invitations. Our navy & burgundy spotty theme ran throughout from the save the dates to the orders of ceremony and menus. We also designed print-outs of readings and songs to frame & sign with messages as thank you gifts.

“I work as a designer so I loved creating the details for our special day. My dad built the chalkboards and easels for me which I decorated with the chalk pens by hand. My parents, brother, aunt, uncle and husband patiently assisted me with with the set up the day before – I knew exactly how I wanted to arrange the table wreaths, candles and vintage bottles and they were so kind to put up with me being obsessive over the placement of everything as I could mere have completed it in time myself!”
