It’s wonderful to see a little wedding cake love. The modern day cake is a work of art, a feast for the eyes even more than for your hungry guests’ tummies. I adore seeing top cake designers launch new collections: wedding cake stars PeboryonRosalind Miller, Cakes by Beth, Amy Swann and Nevie-Pie Cakes are turning wedding cakes into works of art… and for cake fans this has to be the most wonderful thing ever!

‘Fowey’ wedding cake. “After an afternoon celebrating togetherness, art galleries and good coffee, a walk out to watch the white sails chase the breeze on the sparkling sea was invigorating. There’s freedom and beauty in power under control.”

I had an email from lovely Christine at Peboryon a little while ago – a cake design studio based in Cornwall. They recently launched a new range of beautifully different luxury wedding cakes – and the Duchy Collection launch was a fabulous event in itself!

Take a look, and if you love what you see, I’ll be sharing more soon.

Serenity, until December at least, was a state of mind. Rose quartz was a beautiful stone… and yet we are going crazy for these two ‘colours of the year‘. They’re all over wedding blogs with styled shoots, Pins, and mood boards – creating the perfect wedding palette and colour scheme to inspire brides worldwide.

Rose quartz & serenity wedding colour palettes

I’ve talked before about wedding colour palettes being far more than they used to be: gone are the days of one-colour weddings with blocks of Cadbury purple or teal splashed across every available accessory. I believe in colour palettes – choosing a combination of tones will make your wedding look fabulous.

The English Wedding Blog Pinterest page has plenty of boards for different colour schemes and combinations… I’ve even created a rose quartz & serenity board to inspire your big day!

I’m just not sure I believe in Pantone telling us all what the perfect palette for the year should be!

Oh Pantone, you clever marketeers, you. Girls are ruling the internet with visual sharing platforms and an overload of pretty dominating our screens. And you noticed.

Laura and James were married at Yorkshire’s gorgeous Cubley Hall, in the summer. Their day is perfect: captured in a beautiful fine art style, with the whimsical wedding details I love so very much. The flowers are divine – oh, those peonies! and Laura looks more than amazing in a beautiful wedding dress from designer Emma Tindley.

Suki and Patrick’s wedding is a blast of colour to brighten all of our days: their fabulous sunflowers, vibrant pink and purple hydrangeas and exciting summer florals are so perfect! They take me right back to those long summer days and warm evenings where the sunset lasts forever…

Images are by North West wedding photographer Chelsea Shoesmith, who told us a little about today’s gorgeous wedding:

The day was fabulous from start to finish. Patrick and Suki booked me via email as they live in Vietnam and so it wasn’t until they arrived in England that I got to meet them and hear about all of their great plans. The venue was dripping in beautiful floral arrangements by Verdure. They did a fantastic job and I love how vibrant everywhere looked. Every guest was wowed!

Caroline and Rob’s wedding is a classic, combining the loveliest of winter styling with a little colour and English charm. Their day at Old Down Manor is elegant and romantic, and I have been looking forward to sharing it with you! I hope you love it as much as I do.

Flowers were by Becci Hobbs at Bijoux Floral Design (http://bijouxfloral.co.uk/). I wanted the flowers to fit in with the overall Winter theme so we had a mixture of pale pinks, silvers and blues with some pine cones. It was beautiful.

“Advice for the groom:
Marry a girl who loves planning – but be prepared to have to take an interest in flower arrangements.
Advice for the bride:
The groom isn’t interested in flower arrangements. He’s only pretending to be because he loves you so much.” ~ Caroline & Rob

Dave and Lucy’s wedding was an intimate and charming day, the loveliest of English weddings with a New York theme! They married exactly a year to the day since Dave proposed in the big apple. How romantic... I love their story as much as I love the beautiful images of their day, by Bristol wedding photographer Becky Male.

You don’t always have to pay loads of money, shop around and ask friends and family for advice, esp friends who have recently got married. If you know friends that can help you then ask them.

New York themed wedding in Somerset with Becky Male Photography (32)

Lucy told me her dress was perfect – although finding it wasn’t as simple as she thought it would be: “I went to the bridal boutiques trying on all the wrong dresses because I thought I knew what I was looking for it was only towards the end of the session that I found my dress because my maid of honor could see how frustrated I was that I hadn’t found one yet and she grabbed a bunch that she liked (previously I would only try on ones that I liked the look of) and it was the first one she chose that I tried on and loved. As soon as I looked in the mirror my words were ‘I didn’t think I could look this nice’

Kate and David’s wedding is beautiful, perfect… the dream summer wedding at a venue I know is a pretty special place (my cousin was married here!) – and they have the loveliest images to remember it by, from John Mottershaw Photography and with my friend Carol Elizabeth Photography as his second shooter on the day. “We ended up having 2-4-1 on the wedding day as John brought in Carol as an extra pair of hands, so we were very lucky! They both fitted in so well with the guests and you barely noticed they were there snapping away.”


“We were both so pleased when we came across Charlotte’s boutiqueShe was completely different to other boutiques. We sat down while we filled in a questionnaire like what was my budget and what sort of designers I liked etc. and then I just started trying on dresses that she would pick out for me. She would then use the feedback I had on certain dresses to then pick out the next dress. Until finally I found the one! I knew it was perfect from the moment I tried it on.”

It’s funny how one blog feature links into another sometimes… earlier this week I was reading one of our lovely couples’ interviews for the blog, and the bride said she wished she’d been able to keep her bouquet, she was gutted she couldn’t keep her flowers forever… and then as if by magic, Harriet gets in touch with something so very beautiful I can barely believe my eyes!

Harriet produces bespoke miniature artworks?? of your wedding bouquet hand painted in watercolour. ?Each piece comes either framed or unframed and makes the most beautiful? ?wedding gift? ?and everlasting keepsake.

http://www.harrietparryflowers.com

The photos and illustrations on this blog feature show you how wonderfully attentive to detail Harriet’s illustrations are. The paintings are miniature, and yet still so intricately detailed. They come framed or unframed, and make a gorgeous paper anniversary gift, or a keepsake for after your day.






Do discover Harriet for yourself – and imagine your bouquet in miniature, perfectly preserved forever in timeless watercolour!
