Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

Hello, beautiful. I have something so special to share with you today – wedding gowns with a unique and intricate style you won’t have seen anywhere else. The story behind them is wonderful: designer Reuma Zohar‘s business started with a gallery of antique and vintage wedding dresses – over the years inspiring her very own collections. They’re the most enchanting combination of luxe, antique styling with relaxed silhouettes and exquisite fabrics – their look is as beautifully boho as it is regal and vintage.

Reuma & Yoel“, a unique wedding dress brand, is coming to London. Reuma Zohar, the designer behind the brand, has established an original and distinct style. Reuma creates her designs with custom handcrafted, intricate artwork of mixed lace techniques.

Her wedding dresses are refined, classic and gentle, but at the same time they are royal, prestigious and remarkably unique, which makes most of them one-of-a-kind, real works of art. Her wedding dresses have appeared in leading fashion magazines, editorials and covers and worn by fashion forward brides and celebrities.

It’s every bride and groom’s worst nightmare – a last minute crisis when a supplier you’ve had your heart set on suddenly can’t be there for your wedding.

As a supplier myself, I totally get it. I also know those last few weeks before your wedding are busy, stressful and the LAST thing you need is to be let down by one of your suppliers.

All is not lost.

There are things you can do, and ways of handling the situation:

Prevention

  1. You get what you pay for – so before you book a ‘too good to be true’ supplier who’s charging half of what others do, think really carefully. Good, experienced suppliers may charge more – but you’re paying for reliability, great communication and the peace of mind that comes with experience.
  2. Deposits and agreements in writing – always make sure your booking is in writing with dates confirmed and any deposits paid as soon as your supplier asks. Most won’t reserve your date without a deposit – and being ‘pencilled in’ is NEVER confirmation of your booking. Putting off payment of a deposit can lose you that first-choice supplier.

I wanted to share a really pretty wedding with you all today – something elegant and graceful, with a wonderful sense of English charm and tranquility – and I couldn’t think of a lovelier wedding than Christie and Ben’s day. Christie is so very beautiful – a Devon bride whose timeless style reminds me of Audrey Hepburn – with Ben her perfectly handsome leading man. They married at Symondsbury Tithe Barn and chose lovely Linus Moran Photography to capture their day.

“On the day, keep making time for each other. Ben and I kept stealing moments where we would find a quiet spot to soak in the view of our wedding, hold hands, kiss and share tales!

I’ve heard people say nothing changes when you get married. I disagree – there’s a monumental shift and it’s a wonderful one. I love being married. I love hearing Ben introduce me proudly as his wife.

There’s something about an elopement – the romance of it all just gets me, every time! Nick and Kristina’s love just shines from the photos of their special day. There’s no nerves, none of the formality or embarrassment that being in front of a big crowd of people can sometimes bring. These two lovely people are joyful, blissfully happy from the moment we first see them – and yes, it makes me want to elope, right now, to Gretna Green!

The fact it was just us 2 made it so incredibly special – we remember every single word of our wedding vows… Don’t lose sight of what getting married is all about. Being married is the same but everything is different! It’s hard to explain, but there is a deep and strong bond that exsists, that inextricably links you together forever.

Huge thanks to lovely Camilla Lucinda Photography for sharing these beautiful moments with us today!

I got married nearly nine years ago and I absolutely loved planning my wedding day. We carefully wove our love story into the details and special touches.  We had recently moved from London to Bath and wanted all our city slicker friends to kick back and relax at our country house wedding. We were married in the church my family have always attended and headed to a country house to host our reception.

It’s all over so fast…

It was idyllic but as we drove away to our Italian honeymoon I had one regret. It wasn’t the menu, my dress or the flowers. It was that it didn’t last long enough.

As with all weddings we had friends from school and university, people who we don’t see very often. I really wanted to catch up properly with them but the day went so quickly and before I knew it I was at the airport on my way to Tuscany!

Green fields, fairy lights and delicate flowers in her hair… Becky and Rob’s marquee wedding is all kinds of beautiful. Acres of countryside borrowed from Becky’s godfather meant they had the perfect location for a relaxed country celebration, and it looks divine. And oh, that dress….

Gill and Andy’s wedding is like a dream – the perfect beach location; breathtaking spots for those keep-forever photographs and the prettiest of seaside styling touches. They married at Tunnels Beaches in Devon, and chose Evolve Photography to capture their day and the fabulous Pumpkin & Pye for beautiful florals.

Gill’s bridal separates are exquisite – she knew she wanted a skirt and a top rather than a dress. “I tried on about 20 different dresses before I found a store that had a skirt and a top. I knew as soon as I put it on that it was the one! The designer was Karen Willis Holmes and the boutique I bought it from was Martin Charles Bridal in Peterborough. I couldn’t recommend Martin highly enough. He is incredibly talented and made my dress fit like a glove.

I decided that my dress was a statement enough and didn’t want it to be overpowered by lots of jewellery so I kept it simple. I had feather earrings which went with my boho theme and a bangle my mother had given to me for my something new with sapphires in it to match my engagement ring and wedding band.

Lovely fine art wedding photographer Lara Rios was kind enough to take the sweetest photographs of some of my favourite place names earlier this year. Lara is based in the US, and is one of the reasons I love social media SO much – discovering people like Lara brightens my days. Do follow her on Instagram – she loves all the beautiful things which make my heart sing and her styling and photography is just divine.
