These flowers make me think of the seaside… the colours are magical, they’re light and dreamy… and perfect for a summer wedding. The loveliest thing about the bouquet is that it’s one you can make at home with quality silk flowers and our step by step tutorial by lovely Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye.

Where to find quality silk flowers

Artificial flowers come in all shapes and sizes, and the quality varies hugely: garden centres and home stores sell the cheapest they can get. The only way to source really lovely silk blooms is online, and Natasha recommends Afloral.com whose website is testament to the pride they take in sourcing only the very best. Do take a look at Afloral online.

Make your own blue, coral and white bridal bouquet

You will need:-

artificial flowers and foliages of your choice, wire cutters, satin ribbon, floral twine, scissors and pearl pins

Step 1:.

Use wire cutters to trim off all the excess leaves, leaving only leaves close to the flower head.

A beautiful tipi wedding in Devon with Freckle Photography (13)

I’m head over heels in love with Josie and Gareth’s countryside wedding… the photos are fabulous, the location is stunning, I think every detail is perfect. Josie is just so beautiful and Gareth looks fantastic. I adore the heather, the bouquet is amaaaaaazing, the orders of service are gorgeous…. what’s not to love?

The theme for the day was rustic countryside with spectacular tipis and local flowers and food. Josie told me she got a lot of inspiration from wedding blogs and pinterest but choose wedding suppliers through research and recommendations.

If you ever needed proof that you can have a beautiful wedding, on a budget, and make it look even better than all the weddings you see on major wedding blogs – then beautiful bride Charlotte and her handsome groom Jay are here to show you a thing or two. Their wedding is sublime. The location is stunning, the details are gorgeous, and the images are out of this world…

I always look at the guy’s suits when I’m choosing weddings for the blog – and in this case, Jay’s shoes are pretty fab as well! Charlotte told me “We always wanted the men in something a bit different and wool like (especially seeing as though it was a winter wedding) and we just couldn’t find anything like this to hire, and didn’t have the budget to have something made just for Jay. In the end we ended up finding the perfect suit in Next and luckily we could get them all in everyone’s size.” I think they look great.

Gemma’s dress is so lovely – the shoulder details are fabulously pretty and her updo goes beautifully with the dress. And oh, the bouquet…. truly, this is a wedding from heaven!

Millbridge Court is a boutique hotel and wedding barn in the Surrey countryside. The barn is beautiful: with delicious light drifting from the skylights and those wonderful beams, hooks and shelves for you to hang flowers or any decorations from – it’s a pretty, perfect space for a wedding.

Something to brighten your day, my lovely wedding blog friends… beautiful summer wildflower bouquets and the most adorable troupe of flower girls you’re ever likely to see. Sam and Anna’s wonderful Yorkshire wedding will go down as one of my favourites of all time. Their day is full of fun and laughter, love and happiness, and every image tells a story of its very own. Some have made me grin, others give a warm glow…

Real wedding at Hazlewood Castle in Yorkshire with Ian Wallace Photography (46)

Anna is an incredibly beautiful bride. Her smile is infectious: with Sam at her side they make a gorgeous couple. I love the portraits Ian captured of them both around Hazlewood Castle: it’s a venue with knockout looks and some amazing photographic locations. It’s also steeped in a history of kings, knights and historical tales – and I love the romance of adding your own story to the centuries gone before at such a fascinating venue.

Hey lovely! I hope you’re having a great day.

This is what documentary wedding photographers do so amazingly well – and York Place Studios are among the very best.

Weddings are the most wonderful of days; a tapestry of moments is woven together from the smiles, laughter and love of friends and family – and this is true no matter where you choose to marry. Rob and Michele chose a London city centre location for their day. They walked to the venue together (I’d love to see more couples doing this… I LOVE that nervous excitement can be shared!) and from that moment onwards the day is blissfully happy.

I loved photographing this city wedding in London: I always enjoy photographing the life, colours, grandeur and contrast of a city wedding. This wedding was so packed full of memorable moments, I loved that the grooms decided to walk to their venue together through the back streets of London to Westminster. It also allowed me to photograph their walk from a distance, as they shared some fun and intimate moments with the city as a backdrop.

Nadia and Andreas’s wedding is pretty darn special… she’s so amazingly pretty, and they really do look so joyful and content in each other’s arms. Today’s wedding is a treat: beautiful images which capture the atmosphere of a very special day. There are some amazing shots: Nadia’s dress looks divine in every photo, and I love the image of Andreas before the ceremony – no nerves, just pure happiness. Fantastic.

“Nadia was a stunning Bride – so photogenic, and wore her Caroline Castigliano dress so well. It was the first time I’d been part of a multi-faith ceremony – both Muslim and Christian – which made it feel very special. Plus I managed to get my favourite picture of a bride arriving for her ceremony!

Woodland wedding invitation by Ohhh So Darling

I’m a fan of all things different, of little pieces of loveliness with personality, charm and their own enchanting style. Boho weddings are wonderful – individuality and relaxed, rustic style is right up my street! My dream wedding would be woodlandy or beachy with fun instead of frills… and the stationery would be boho, illustrated, and oh-so-slightly quirky. If you’re like me then you’ll love this little curation of boho wedding invitations. See where to buy in the listings below. You’re welcome!Claire

I had so much fun at Monique and Adam’s wedding; it was just so relaxed and happy from start to finish. I had met up with them both in York for their engagement shoot the week before so I already knew that they were going to be naturals in front of the camera on the day – despite Adam being less than keen on having his photo taken! The weather forecast wasn’t great but it ended up being dry all afternoon and we were able to make the most of the little orchard at the back of the hotel for some lovely portraits. Monique was such a beautiful bride, and has the most infectious smile! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming it was one of those wonderful weddings that didn’t feel like work at all!” ~ Laura Calderwood Photography

Rolling hills, beautiful gardens… fabulous wisteria blooms in spring and a gorgeous arbour for outdoor weddings: Surrey and Kent couples will LOVE Oaks Farm.

Surrey outdoor weddings at Oaks Farm with images by Fiona Kelly Photography (3)

This is more than a barn, more than a countryside venue. Oaks Farm has its very own charm, and a lovely choice of locations for your ceremony and reception. The summer house is so pretty; the barn and orangery are perfect for indoor ceremonies, the gardens are beautifully looked after and stunning all year round.

Oaks Farm is a really beautiful hidden jem of a venue. It’s minutes from the hustle of Croydon and Bromley and yet seems a real idyll of country calm.” ~ Fiona Kelly Photography, London
