Good morning lovely blog friends! I hope you’ve had the most amazing weekend and are ready for some fabulous wedding style ideas this week – we have some gorgeous real weddings, styled shoots and advice features coming up over the next few days for you to enjoy! But first… the loveliest thing I could find to begin a perfect week for us all…

Imagine a lakeside ceremony, a peaceful, tranquil setting for your celebrations with a dream backdrop. The Lake District is our very own destination wedding location right here in the UK, and filled with inspiring wedding folks to create the most perfect day. The delicate blues and exquisite details in today’s styled shoot are perfect for Pinning and planning your day around!

Colour can come from any aspect of your wedding décor. Be inspired by the walls of your reception room, or the outside spaces at your venue – and add pops of colour with an ombre blue cake (we LOVE!), little paper boats (wonderful for an unusual table plan!) and stunning summer flowers.

Lizzie and Chris are the loveliest of couples and I’m so pleased to be sharing their ever-so-elegant English wedding with you today. If you’re wondering if you’ll cry in church, Lizzie’s photos are about to show it doesn’t matter: in fact I think it’s such a beautiful moment! And there are so many more throughout today’s wedding blog feature.

That’s not to mention the lovely styling and blue colour tones, another reason I selected this wedding to share with you on the blog today. I’ve learned a few things from Lizzie – Eryngium, anyone? Beautiful. (There’s a clue in the photo above!)

Thank you to wedding photographer Jo Garlike from Summer Love Photography for today’s submission, and my warmest congratulations to the very gorgeous Lizzie and Chris! Everyone – enjoy! Claire xxx

Did you see Louisa and Dan’s wedding day on the blog yesterday? I held back all the pics of their reception venue because they’d done such an amazing job decorating – nay transforming – a village hall into a beautiful, blue wedding reception room.

I’ve been playing with the gorgeous pics though, and I think you’ll love the inspiration board I made from Neil Redfern’s wedding photography. I’ve also added a gallery for you to see the pictures larger at the end too.

I can’t get over what a brilliant job Louisa did with decorating the village hall for her wedding reception. Friends and family were a great help – Louisa said, “I had a team of wonderful friends and family who helped me put up decorations bought from eBay, including organza lengths of material, chinese style different coloured paper lanterns and metres of bunting made by my mother in law and bridesmaid!”
