Warm out there, isn’t it?!! I’m loving how summery I’m feeling this week – and just before I take my little packed lunch to the beach (because I’m the luckiest wedding blogger and it’s like 2 minutes’ walk!) I have this stunning summer wedding to share with you. Beautiful bride Victoria got in touch with me a few weeks ago. She married Stephen last July and chose a quintessentially English theme for their wedding day.

I loved hearing about Victoria’s dress: it was handmade for her by a family friend, along with her mum’s dress and the four bridesmaids’ dresses. Victoria was really involved in the process, and able to choose the fabric (Thai Silk), shape (A-Line) and detailing on her dress. Silk covered buttons ran all the way down the back of the gown, with the top button covered in lace from Victoria’s grandmother’s wedding dress. Oh, and pockets! Her dream dress looks fabulous – as if it were made especially for her – and it was!
