Kelly and Joe got married on my birthday back in May, and celebrated in style (as did I!) – they chose to hire Alston Hall for a 5 day festival-inspired celebration with friends and family. Kelly is beautiful – I love how she describes buying her wedding dress and the resulting snow blindness… don’t skip on the English Wedding Blog interview [at the end of today’s feature] for that one!

The gorgeous couple found their wedding suppliers online, and through friends and local businesses too. Many details are home made too: the stationery was a labour of love; the pompoms, lanterns and fairy lights were all done by friends and family.

The most impressive DIY aspect of today’s wedding blog is the food though: Kelly’s friend Kirsty runs her own catering business and helped design the menu for the wedding. Kelly told me, “we hired her sister and a friend to work as the chefs. Our poor friends then helped with all the prep for the day to serve 150 people!”

When Alexandra met Lewis she was dressed as a devil. He was wearing “a 12 year old’s skeleton suit”… and they fell in love! They were married in June and their wedding is one of the loveliest classic English weddings I’ve seen. Alexandra looks divine in a Sassi Holford gown while Lewis is fabulous in a Reiss suit. Their theme was vintage travel, styled around a red post box which I love.

With stationery by Lucy Says I Do and fabulous flowers by Caroline Hodges, the styling of this lovely Devon wedding is classy and colourful. I love all the little details – and the portraits of gorgeous Alexandra and Lewis are just so romantic!

Pete and Claire are one of those couples who instantly make me smile. They’re a perfect match, absolutely gorgeous and their smiles warm my heart. They styled a rustic barn wedding at The Barn at South Milton, and together with family and friends created a wonderful day full of personality and charm.

Claire and Pete poured their hearts into styling a really beautiful day, and I love the little details: the seasonal flowers, handmade paper stars, printed napkins, bunting and logs full of flowers are just adorable!
