Elopements and escapes are a big part of modern wedding planning! I hear you – all that planning is too crazy, so why not pack your favourite people onto a little plane and head away somewhere sunny to get wed in a beautiful intimate celebration overseas? If travelling is your thing, then a destination wedding could be right up your street. Just keep it simple, don’t forget your trousers (like our friend did – and he realised on the day of his wedding!) and remember to celebrate with a massive party when you get home!
It hardly feels like a full 18 months has passed since I discovered Clare Lloyd‘s exquisite handcrafted bridal jewellery. I’d planned a photoshoot in the Lake District, and seen her pieces online… but when they arrived with the postman I was more than blown away. To have the talent, the patience! to create such intricate jewellery must be a dream. To wear a single one of Clare’s stunningly crafted accessories on your wedding day will, I promise, make you feel amazing.
I think my bouquet would be one of my most exciting wedding purchases – and definitely one of the trickiest to decide on! I love all the flowers (oh! except gerberas and gypsophila!) – so I dream of a tumbling armful of peonies and dahlias, tulips and ferns, hellebores and sweet peas… in all the colours. I fall for a new favourite flower every season so it’s pretty certain I’d be a challenge for any florist… but I know what we’d do: simply find a florist whose own style we adore, and trust them implicitly to create something spectacular! However… as this week is all about our favourite wedding ideas, here’s a beautiful curation of all of our favourite bouquets from the English Wedding Blog! I hope it helps you pin down your flower style!
