I’ve been so excited to share today’s lovely wedding with you! Ella looks amazing in her floaty light, boho gown and wears an heirloom veil handed down through generations from her great grandmother’s wedding in 1924. Ludo’s her perfect match – I adore that floral tie! These two wanted their day to be very personal, laid back, and fun, with a botanical, English country garden feel. Their wedding is really personal, with Ella doing the flowers and Ludo’s sister making their gorgeous cake. The home made elements make it really special – and hey, who needs a sit down dessert when you can have a wheelbarrow full of ice-creams?!
Did you see yesterday’s elopement inspiration feature? (check it out here) I mentioned one of my best friends eloped last week: I’m so thrilled for her and her husband! And I have to confess, if me and my guy were to tie the knot, we’d elope. Because I just love the romance of it all: the escape, the shared secret, the adventure. So I wanted to write a little something to inspire all of you considering an elopement.
Thank you lovely Ellie Entwistle for this guest article!

When you get married, there are certain things that are going to be there on your big day… A ceremony, a meal, photographs, invitations, but that doesn’t mean it has to be the same as everyone else’s, right?
Some people like to stick to tradition and that’s great! But why not break the mould, venture off the beaten track, go your own way and put a unique twist on some of the biggest wedding must-haves?
Today I wanted to share something cosy, beautiful and romantic – one of our last winter weddings of the blog season, I imagine – and one of the loveliest for sure. My fabulously talented friend Emily Black Photography captured this beauty at Maunsel House in Somerset. The stunning bride and groom are Rosie and Craig, whose day was full of fun, laughter and happiness as they celebrated with family and friends.
Forgive me, lovelies, because today’s wedding has more images than I normally post… it’s just that there are so many little stories in today’s gorgeous celebration, and the little sequences of images tell them so beautifully! (Watch out for my fave – when Shane sees Eleni in her second dress his jaw literally drops!) So welcome to the wedding of gorgeous couple Eleni & Shane, who wed in October at Belair House in Dulwich Village, London. Their photographer was our lovely friend and English Wedding sponsor, London wedding photographer Emily Black.
