Morning beautiful ­čÖé How are you today? I have another gorgeous wedding to share with you today, this time from the Dorset countryside and an adorable-looking wedding venue called Kingston Country Courtyard. If you’re having a barn wedding you will love this! Kingston has an 18th century stone barn with a bar attached… it sounds pretty perfect and looks amazing!

Rebecca is gorgeous in a silhouette lace wedding dress by La Sposa, and Andy looks great in a navy suit from Austin Reed. Oh, and the bridesmaids are as lovely as they are smiley… three ridiculously pretty girls in the lightest sage green dresses.

I hope you’ll get lots of ideas from today’s real wedding with rustic flowers, handmade bunting, a DIY Dad’s amazing cake stand and a delicious-looking naked cake with strawberries… you will LOVE this! Thanks to lovely Dorset wedding photographer Paul Underhill for sharing images of the day, and to the gorgeous bride and groom for such a fab wedding report. Everyone – enjoy!

I loved my cousin’s wedding at Hassop Hall in Derbyshire – it was a beautiful celebration, Jenny looked amazing and Charlie every bit the English gent – a wedding I’ll never forget. I’ve been waiting for years for someone to send me another Hassop Hall wedding to feature on the blog, and finally – at last! it’s happened. Today I bring you the most beautiful English countryside wedding courtesy of gorgeous bride and groom Sally and Richard.

I love this wedding for so many reasons – Hassop Hall is just an incredible venue in rural Derbyshire and I absolutely fell in love with the place. Sally and Richard are a fun, creative and fabulous-looking couple, and they made their wedding day really personal with lots of details from little homemade pots of jam with labels, to photo frame table numbers – which are brilliant! and then the “Welsh Bob Marley and an air hostess cake topper”… it’s genius. I love it!
