There was a time (and it feels like long ago), when we didn’t have the joys of the internet, social media or Pinterest.  When it comes to wedding style part of me thinks “how on earth did we manage” but the other half of me feels it was possibly a much simpler place.

Today’s wedding at King’s Weston House is absolutely gorgeous! The little touches Hollie and Jimmy used to decorate tables and entertain guests are just fabulous – and the bride and groom are a stunning couple – Hollie is so very beautiful. Images are by our lovely sponsor and Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek. Use the little icon at the top of each image to save to your Pinterest boards – there are SO many ideas to fall in love with here!

The wedding traditions I like best of all are the simple, fun and creative ones. Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue is a tradition many of us uphold – and it’s lovely because our mums, sisters, grandmas and closest friends all love to get involved (in a good way!)

I have been playing on the internet and discovered so many creative ideas for those somethings old, new, borrowed and blue. Traditionally the items would have been carried, or on the bride’s person during the wedding, but recently brides have been a little more creative in counting things like vintage cars as their ‘something old’ – and we’re all for that! If you’re struggling with any one of your somethings old, new, borrowed or blue, here are some ideas to help!


Hey there, lovelies! I fell head over heels for this shoot sent in by lovely Rebecca at Storyteller Photography. The vintage wicker chair is wonderful (and a key trend for 2018 weddings too!) – the foliage is divine and every little detail sings of summer days.

The look is that of a perfectly romantic, slightly boho English garden wedding. Styling touches include plenty of foliage, which works wonderfully for an outdoor wedding in any location. The colour palette is based around luscious greens with hints of white and copper throughout. Foliage is key within the bouquet, flower crown and floral styling, with delicate white and peach accents.


Before you even begin to think about styling your wedding, have a peek online at English Wedding Directory member The Prop Factory and their gorgeous range of ideas and things to hire for your big day. They’ve got the kind of beautiful velvet antique chairs you see in every styled shoot; they have brilliant fairground-style garden games for your guests; antique props and light-up letters… in fact it would probably be easier for me to list the bits and pieces you can’t hire from them!
