I think I first ‘discovered’ Jenny Packham back in 2010 when Annabel at Love My Dress began to write more and more about her designs. Those sequins and sparkles which were so uniquely Jenny Packham made an impact on me and I’ve been an admirer ever since. I look to Jenny for innovative designer dresses with flair and individuality… and her 2016 Bridal Collection is a fabulous testament to Jenny’s world class brand and signature style.

Today’s stately home wedding shoot takes us to the magnificent Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. There are designer dresses by Jenny Packham, Sassi Holford and Suzanne Neville, antique furniture and exquisite stationery to inspire those of you planning a stately home wedding – we’re talking lush, big budget styles with a classic flavour.

Bethany and Harry’s wedding has that timeless English beauty I love more than anything: exquisite flowers, a Jenny Packham designer dress – described by Bethany as her epiphany moment – and is set in the most incredible venue. From the very moment I saw their images I was hooked.

And I just can’t stop looking at them! Wow…. the flowers are such a statement feature of this glorious wedding. Bethany’s job is for a major flower business, and she enlisted the very best florist to style the arrangements for her day. Your Pinterest fingers are going to hurt when you’ve finished this blog feature, I promise…. toooo beautiful.


All of you lovely brides-to-be will be having the adventure of your lives as you plan your weddings – and a huge part will be wedding dress shopping. There are so many incredible wedding dress designers you might struggle to choose… so one of the very best in the world is about to sweeten the deal! Tempted?

Stepping inside the Jenny Packham store is only the beginning…


More than a few times as I flicked through the images for today’s real wedding blog feature I gasped, chuckled or did my best little attempt at a blogger squeal – because it’s just so fantastic! There’s everything: gorgeous couple, beautiful dress, large orange octopus… Oh and there are bubbles, vintage maps, a button bouquet with a librarian badge… too much to mention before I show you the fabulous images!

Emma and Richard are simply brilliant. Emma’s smile never fades – she’s such a beautiful bride and wears “the first and only dress I tried on”. I love her style and everything about her.
