Louisa and Will’s August wedding was filled with sunflowers and rustic, elegant styling touches. I think it’s a perfect promise of summer to come – and I hope it lightens your heart a little this Friday morning. The venue is Lapstone Barn, and the day was full of love, laughter, friends, family – and freely flowing champagne! Grab a cuppa, snuggle for a moment and enjoy the virtual company of this gorgeous pair. All images are by Hannah K Photography, who gets a glowing review from Louisa and Will.

How did you choose your photographer?

I had a recommendation from a friend who was unable to have Hannah as her wedding photographer. When we looked at her website we knew we had found the woman to capture our wedding day. We were drawn to the amazingly light bright and airy style she showcased on her website.

For all of you lovely brides and grooms out there, I want to keep blog life as normal as possible right now: a beautiful anchor in this crazy storm we’re living this spring. (For wedding suppliers – watch this space as I’m working hard on something of a rescue package today – details to be announced soon.)

So we begin the week with Hayden & Rabia’s stunning summer wedding from Kilminorth Cottages in Looe. These two are everything: properly gorgeous, and their wedding is the most joyful celebration – as uplifting as can be! The florals are breathtaking; the styling of their day simply perfect. I hope you love today’s feature as much as I do.

With love,

Woohoo!! I’m so happy to be sharing this glorious wedding with you all today! It’s one I’ve been excited to publish since last year… so grab a cuppa, log in to Pinterest and prepare to be wowed by all the wonderful details and fabulous images from our lovely friend Warren at Howell Jones Photography. The images are  joyful – and our stunning couple Niamh and Marcus show just what a wedding day should be: fiercely happy, overwhelmingly loved-up and brilliantly beautiful. Hands down, these guys just nailed it and had the most amazing wedding – with help from some fantastic Hertfordshire wedding suppliers.

The wedding was all in the grounds of Hexton School field behind the school car park in Hexton. Niamh is from Ireland, so all her family came across for the big day, where the ceremony was held in beautiful woods next to the fields. Sure, there was rain – but nobody cared one bit: the day was fabulous from beginning to end! Fun was had with a three legged race in the afternoon (and yes, we have pics!) – but the styling is what really made this wedding stand out for me. The flowers by White Button Weddings are absolutely amazing; the tablescapes with handwritten place names are beautifully rustic. The cheesecloth table runners in a soft grey complement autumnal red place settings with vibrant florals: crocosmia, seedheads and delicate ferns with blousy dahlias, and kraft card menus to complete the rustic vibe.

Well, hello there weekend!!! It’s wonderful to be here! – and lovelies, before you head out Christmas shopping, do indulge in a little weddingness with me? I have the prettiest day to share with you, including some of the loveliest evening portraits of our gorgeous couple Leigh & Adam. The pair were married at The Plough at Leigh, and chose English Wedding member Terence Joseph as their wedding photographer. 

“We made and sourced a lot of decorations ourselves, but the barn already looked beautiful with hops and fairy lights. We loved making some of our decorations as we got friends and family onboard and was fun to do altogether! We made name places, jars with hessian and signs – who knew we had so many creative friends! My favourite thing to make was our ‘Find your name to find your place board’ – we put Polaroids of all guests on the board with string and pegs so people could take them home with them.

A black tie wedding… the most amazing boho dress covered in delicate sparkles… and more fun and laughter and PARTYING than you’d think you could fit into one day. This wedding – as they always are when our friends and sponsors at York Place Studios are involved – is an absolute blast of beautiful and playful, and I LOVE it.

The Normans venue is a charming, rustic space on a working farm just outside York. Covered in twinkling fairy lights, it’s welcoming and picture perfect inside and out. The courtyard is wonderful on a sunny day, and as evening sets guests can relax in the cow shed (snug) or grain shed (ultimate party space!) – take a look at http://thenormansweddings.co.uk

We cannot thank you enough, we have been screeching with laughter, I can only imagine what you guys witnessed that night!

We just love all these photos so much, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. They are the perfect end to an amazing year, and they are exactly how we wanted the wedding captured!

Morning lovely! Do you have sunshine? I hope so – it’s beautiful here and I’m so tempted to hit the beach for an impromptu lunch picnic right now! Before I do though – something really rather beautiful is about to wriggle its way up your screen and into your heart! Stunning couple Rachael and James were married at Owen House Wedding Barn in Cheshire and their rustic country wedding is full of the loveliest moments and details… I mean, this adorable bunch of humans just make the BEST group shots I’ve seen in a LONG while!

A fabulous tipi celebration in the height of summer. A gorgeous, relaxed and head-over-heels in love couple. Rustic styling, tons of florals, vibrant colours and a party atmosphere. It really doesn’t get much better than this! Howard and Rowena’s wedding venue was the village field in Iwerne Minster, the village where Rowena’s mother lives. By day the field is a football pitch and on a sunny day in August it was transformed with the addition of tipis into their wedding venue! I hope you love this one as much as I do. Huge thanks to Rowena and Howard, and to our fabulous friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography. Do read the groom’s interview below – the story of their day is fantastic!

Gorgeous couple Emily & Harry tied the knot at Sharpham House in Devon last May. Theirs was a wonderfully relaxed, country style wedding with plenty of wildflowers – and truly, the floral styling is breathtaking! Harry’s mum arranged all of the flowers with help from family and friends. Emily told me she worked tirelessly in the run up to the wedding and in particular the day before to make everything look so beautiful.

“We went to a wholesale flower seller in Cornwall to purchase all of the flowers and used wildflowers in her garden to help decorate the tables. We had plenty of green foliage to bulk out the flowers and also add colour. In my bouquet were pale pink peonies, blue delphiniums, white freshias and green foliage. The wildflowers on the tables included buttercups and bluebells. We also used plenty of cow parsley and eucalyptus to decorate the venue!

The venue itself is a beautiful old house, so we didn’t need a large amount of decoration. We added a few touches here and there to make it look more festive and like a wedding!

How is your week going? Do you have sunshine? It’s been beautiful here… I think spring is my favourite season of all when it’s like this! I could almost be on my laptop in the garden right now!

We’ve had a week of beautiful weddings and features, and today’s is a real favourite: the relaxed and elegant styling is fabulous; Lucy & James are gorgeous and their day looks so much fun. It’s all beautifully captured by our friend and outstanding Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography.

Lucy’s Alice Temperley gown takes my breath away. The delicate embroidery and soft, swishing fabric of that fabulous skirt make this a true dream dress!

Having a boho / rustic wedding can still involve lots of styling and creative projects, and I fell head over heels for all the foliage in Lucy & James’s marquee – they made hazel frames running along all the tables and hung hops and other foliage from it – it looks fabulous. Even the bar is covered in hops! I love it!

Hey lovelies! Let’s dive straight into today’s real wedding – it’s too good to miss! Gorgeous couple Lauren & Duncan were married in July at the gorgeous Merriscourt, Oxfordshire. They had lots of lovely rustic details with flowers and foliage everywhere – and such carefully selected styling elements. Lauren’s dress by Sottero & Midgley (from Once in a Lifetime Bridal)  is stunning! “It was as if it was made for me, and I felt incredible on the big day.”

This wedding is making me feel like summertime… and with the rain this morning hammering against the window in my little office, I’ll take that! Images are by lovely Rachel Lou Photography.

“The venue itself was a series of beautiful barns set in amazing grounds, which wouldn’t have looked out of place in southern Italy! We wanted lots of fairy lights set amongst the beams and also had lots of vinyl decal on mirrors as we wanted to make the most of the light in the venue. We had lots of candles set around and wooden accessories to tie in the rustic theme.
