Ria and Jordan’s day is so prettily styled with the loveliest spring flowers – their barn venue is one I haven’t seen or featured on the blog before and I’ve fallen head over heels for this place – I hope you will too!

My wedding flowers were simple and pretty! I was showing my auntie one day what I was thinking of doing just in general conversation. (She is not a florist, but we all call her green fingers as gardening is her favourite hobby and she has an allotment!) She suggested I could do them myself so I asked her if she would help and luckily she did! People kept asking all day who my flowers were by! My bridesmaids had simple gypsophila which my auntie also made, I had my bouquet made by Robert in the flower station in North Chingford London. It was just perfect.

Our wedding was at Pledgdon Barn, Bishops Stortford. The barn was built in the Tudor era. It had been looked after amazingly and the character of the venue was very stong and beautiful. We still remember walking in viewing it for the first time, it took our breath away.

Danielle and Andy’s wedding is the prettiest floral celebration I’ve seen – with fabulous peonies and the prettiest pink details, it’s wonderful inspiration for a classic summer celebration. I adore Danielle’s hair – her loose plait with tiny flowers is so, so beautiful – I hope you love this wedding as much as I do!

We decided on peony and roses in pink shades as we loved the romantic look and feel of them. We wanted the flowers to compliment and fit in with the venue, so had the floristry done through Narborough Hall Gardens, who grew and arranged all our flowers. The flowers were part of what made the day for us as they were so beautiful, with candelabra and teapot displays, amazing bouquets and a beautiful willow bower and flowers lining the aisle in shepherd crook jars.

Emma and Fraser’s wedding has timeless grace and a lightness of spirit – the romance of today’s feature is simply wonderful. The details are subtle, elegant and sophisticated, taking inspiration from days gone by with effortless charm. And our bride and groom are gorgeous a million times over in their wedding finery… think bespoke gowns and Scottish groomswear, family heirlooms and the loveliest touches to make a wedding to remember forever.

The flowers are divine: with roses and cornflowers taking centre stage, thistles and wildflowers combined to create the loveliest of palettes. I love a mixed bouquet – this is where floral designers really come into their own. Celeste French has an instinct for amazing arrangements for weddings and styled the flowers so beautifully for Emma & Fraser’s day.

Fraser and Emma’s love shines from their images. From the very beginning of their day to the sparklers after dusk, their photos tell a story of the most romantic day you could dream of. Emma’s dress is captivating in its beauty – just look at this…

Rolling hills, beautiful gardens… fabulous wisteria blooms in spring and a gorgeous arbour for outdoor weddings: Surrey and Kent couples will LOVE Oaks Farm.

This is more than a barn, more than a countryside venue. Oaks Farm has its very own charm, and a lovely choice of locations for your ceremony and reception. The summer house is so pretty; the barn and orangery are perfect for indoor ceremonies, the gardens are beautifully looked after and stunning all year round.

Oaks Farm is a really beautiful hidden jem of a venue. It’s minutes from the hustle of Croydon and Bromley and yet seems a real idyll of country calm.” ~ Fiona Kelly Photography, London

I look at my cherry tree every day to see if the buds are getting any closer to flowering… I just love springtime and all the beauty that comes with it. So today – a treat. A glorious spring wedding. A blast of cherry blossom so candy-flossily pink you could just dive in. A stunning bride and groom and a super location for country-loving couples. You’re welcome!

Real wedding at Oaks Farm in Surrey with Fiona Kelly Photography (21)

As ever, I can’t take any credit for the beautiful photos I’m about to share. They’re by lovely London wedding photographer Fiona Kelly, who told me Victoria had worked really hard to put together such a beautiful wedding. “She had done all the planning on her own and created so many wonderful little touches and ideas that made their day very special and very personal to the two of them… Victoria and Haydn are the loveliest people and so perfect for each other. It was a complete pleasure and privilege to photograph their wedding”

Imagine the perfect summer wedding day on a 16th century farm converted into the loveliest country guesthouse. The sound of birds singing as you wake, the glow of the sun across the grasses and greenery of acres of wildflower meadows. You can even have your ceremony outdoors at lovely Elvey Farm – our gorgeous couple Jo & Sam did just that.

Elvey Farm can help with your wedding planning – their package includes food and drink, flowers and photography or you can bring in your own suppliers if you prefer. I loved Jo and Sam’s wedding which was photographed by lovely Fiona Kelly Photography. I know Fiona would love to shoot more outdoor weddings so do get in touch if you’re booking Elvey Farm, won’t you?!

Jo told me “Elvey Farm has its own florist, a wonderful lady called Lesley Masters. I gave Lesley some rough ideas and asked for everything to appear natural like it had just been picked from the garden and she came up with the beautiful creations.

The decoration was all low key, we hung lanterns in the marquee along with wooden hearts but we wanted to keep the decoration to a minimum.

“I was delighted with the photography from our wedding. Fiona managed to capture the day perfectly and really reflected the country feel we tried to create. The candid photos of family and friends laughing during the speeches were wonderful.

“I have a few things on my wedding wish list and am happy to work up something special in terms of a photography package for a wedding that matches my wish list.

If you are planning an outdoor wedding somewhere amazingly scenic and beautiful (in a forest, on a mountain top, on a beach, in a flower field, amongst the ruins of a castle, I think you get the idea) then get in touch. I would love to hear from you and help to create some gorgeous images of your wedding day.”

Every day this week I’ve been for a lunchtime walk by the beach. Being outside – even feeling sunshine on my face – lifts my heart. It’s kind of amazing that a photograph can do the exact same thing. This is Jo & Sam photographed on their wedding day at Elvey Farm in Kent.
