Happy September, lovely! Now – I’ve had this beautiful wedding up my sleeve for a little while, because there are a few little baubles in here… and I thought we should probably wait until September before mentioning Christmas! It’s a BEAUTIFUL wedding though, so I absolutely couldn’t wait a moment longer before sharing it with you. Susanna and Kieran’s wedding is perfect. They married last year, with only 8 ceremony guests and a relaxed and informal celebration with some beautiful touches. Honestly, these two are the cutest couple and I’m so excited to share their day with you. Watch out for the EPIC florals and for Susanna’s gorgeous Charlie Brear jumpsuit, which is absolutely stunning!
Happy Sunday, beautiful! How’s your weekend going? I forgot to tell you – we spent last night at The Wordsworth in Grasmere, a gorgeous spot for a wedding – so waking up this morning was absolute bliss! I’ll tell you all about it later in the week 🙂 For today though, something VERY special. We’ve been chatting to the wedding & events team at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford recently – it’s a breathtaking and wonderfully unique wedding venue with a stunning balance of contemporary architecture and historic backdrops – half a million years of art and history, to be precise! Today we’re sharing a bridal photoshoot at the Ashmolean, so you can see the place for yourselves… isn’t it incredible?!
I thought we all deserved a little treat this Sunday afternoon, so gather round and snuggle up for an extra special dose of wedding lovely. Our fabulous friend Amanda Karen Photography sent in this beauty of a shoot and I’ve fallen for it hook, line and sinker. The styling is exquisite; the colour palette is fabulous. This is a shoot in two halves: the copper dress takes my breath away and I’d love to see more brides wearing such a bold statement dress… but if that’s not for you then the bridal jumpsuit is unique, different and 100% on trend for 2019! Both outfits are by the always fabulous Charlie Brear.
Today’s inspiration feature is wonderfully stripped back, individual and super beautiful – from a group of small independent wedding suppliers at Lainston House.

“We wanted to involve smaller independent suppliers, Karolina Grycko who made the cakes, White Designs Bridal, Hampshire Slate, and Byootefel. Having the opportunity for them to work alongside established talent like Brides of Winchester, Little Lillies and Hayley Savage Photography, who was our photographer for the day, was a great collaboration opportunity for everyone involved.
Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.
Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”
