Rebecca and Howard have the most relaxed approach to wedding planning I’ve seen – the preparations took “about 6 months”, they spent as little as possible and rather than having a theme they styled their country style wedding day with the things they liked… including 1950s music, natural flowers (which I adore!) oh, and Landrovers!

Howard looks the part in a proper English bowler hat – I love it! And Rebecca is simply stunning in a gorgeous lace sleeved dress by Ellis Bridals. The images are wonderful, and the story of this wedding is one I love. It’s a simple, natural and relaxed wedding – from start to finish. It can take months and months of preparation to make a wedding look rustic, natural and simple… or it can actually be all of those things! Rebecca and Howard’s wedding is genuine and all the more beautiful for it.
