First is Hannah & Mark. This gorgeous couple were married in Wimbledon and followed the ceremony with an exclusive reception for friends and family. Everything is beautiful: I especially adore Hannah’s Kenneth Winston dress, and their stunning portrait shots by lovely Danielle Smith Photography. I hope you do too!

“After the ceremony all the guests jumped on London buses to the RAC club in Pall Mall- which is a private members club – so pretty exclusive. And oh my goodness is it an amazing location! It’s very grand and has a beautiful terrace which they spent the drinks reception on. It was such a fun day with so much laughter and such a chilled atmosphere.

So your big day is coming up, with so many things to be decided upon the logistics of getting to and from your wedding day might be pushed to the side. Another consideration will be for your guests; it may not be the best plan to assume that everyone will drive themselves. Therefore, it may be a nice idea to make room in your wedding budget to transport yourself and guests! Thankfully, BookAclassic has loads of options for you.

With the trend to make everything as instagrammable as possible it’s time to eschew traditional modes of transport and get creative. Get inspired by these wedding transportation ideas that you may not have considered before…

Amy and Paul were lucky enough to be married in an English vineyard – it was a gorgeous summer day and the vineyard was the perfect outdoor setting for such a relaxed and informal celebration. Everything was very simply styled but the simplicity made everything look all the more elegant, don’t you think? West Street Vineyard is in the Essex countryside in Coggeshall with ceremonies literally amongst the vines. The sunset was incredible for our beautiful bride and groom, so do make sure you scroll all the way down to see every last gorgeous shot of their day!

I was looking for a tight fitting lace dress that was in all the magazines I was looking at at the time. When I tried these types on they were just not quite right. We were in Bridal Re-dress in Colchester when my sisters (also my two bridesmaids) actually made me try on my dress – the complete opposite to what I was originally looking for! When I couldn’t stop smiling and whirling around in it we all knew it was the one!

So autumn has well and truly landed, and I’m loving jumpers and autumn walks already. Don’t you just love playing in the leaves and trying to catch one? Even if you’re on your own… it’s lucky to catch a leaf but so much harder than it looks! It’s time for evenings by the fire and cosy candlelit cuddles, and for making wedding plans together – because in 10 weeks it’ll be 2018! Eeek!!
