This is beautiful! Katy and Russell were married at Charlton House in Somerset in an elegant and sophisticated celebration with close friends and family.

Katy looks stunning in her Caroline Castigliano wedding dress, Jimmy Choos and full length veil – but admits she wasn’t completely besotted with her dress! And you know what? That’s absolutely fine by me 🙂 She’s beautiful, and she and Russell look so much in love – the images of their day are heartwarming and magical.

They decorated Charlton House with delicious little floral table displays, lots of gypsophila and exquisite stationery by Katy’s graphic designer sister, Emily. I love the ‘Nan Jams’ wedding favours and jars of snowdrops (I think it’s the first time I’ve seen snowdrops at a wedding, and they’re the loveliest flowers aren’t they?!) – but I’ll leave you to discover all of the pretty details for yourself. The fabulous images are by Albert Palmer Photography – don’t miss Katy’s wedding report at the end of the feature to see her brilliant reaction to seeing the wedding pictures for the first time! Enjoy.

If you can find better options for your wedding, then you should! If you don’t want the traditional format for your ceremony, if you want to see your groom before the wedding… do it! I’m a huge fan of creative and modern approaches to wedding planning, and I really feel it’s important that UK brides and grooms aren’t persuaded by wedding magazines or old fashioned suppliers that you have to do things in the traditional way.

wedding dress House of Fraser (6)

… so when Alice got in touch to tell me about House of Fraser I was sceptical: expensive wedding dresses, a bridal department to rival your average designer wedding dress boutique, I thought. I was so wrong! You can get your hands on a wedding dress from House of Fraser for a couple of hundred pounds. And they’re gorgeous. Here are a few of my favourites – chosen by me, with English Wedding Blog readers in mind! The guest blog post is written by Alice (who knows more about the dresses than I do!)
