Today’s elegantly styled wedding comes from Caswell House in the Cotswolds. Beautiful bride Kelley has written the loveliest interview for us and shared her recommendations for Cotswolds wedding suppliers, which will be unmissable reading for any of you lovely brides and grooms-to-be in the region. I adore the unusual florals with such a unique colour palette, Kelley’s gorgeous dress and the romantic atmosphere of the day. Images are by Jessica Davies, who told me “I loved the way that Kelley embraced the wintry theme, with a sprinkling of darker, seasonal florals and warming candles, yet managed to also keep everything feeling light and romantic, with the beautiful Cotswold’s stone, pale grey bridesmaids dresses and inclusion of baby’s breath flowers. Family was a huge part of the wedding, and Kelley’s father spent weeks designing and making the personalised wooden ring box which you’ll see in the photographs. Overall, I think it was one of the most smiley, joyful weddings I’ve ever captured.” ~ Jessica Davies Photography

Good morning lovely blog friends! I hope you’ve had the most amazing weekend and are ready for some fabulous wedding style ideas this week – we have some gorgeous real weddings, styled shoots and advice features coming up over the next few days for you to enjoy! But first… the loveliest thing I could find to begin a perfect week for us all…

Imagine a lakeside ceremony, a peaceful, tranquil setting for your celebrations with a dream backdrop. The Lake District is our very own destination wedding location right here in the UK, and filled with inspiring wedding folks to create the most perfect day. The delicate blues and exquisite details in today’s styled shoot are perfect for Pinning and planning your day around!


Colour can come from any aspect of your wedding décor. Be inspired by the walls of your reception room, or the outside spaces at your venue – and add pops of colour with an ombre blue cake (we LOVE!), little paper boats (wonderful for an unusual table plan!) and stunning summer flowers.


Today’s wedding style inspiration is dreamily beautiful, at one with nature and delicately feminine. The details are divine: stormy aubergine tulips bend gracefully across elegant calligraphy place settings. Pretty bridal gowns contrast with a vibrant lip colour; the sweetest of pink roses nestle amongst escaping foliage and darker hues – together they create an amazing wedding look.

The Lady At The Lake was an extra special styled shoot for me, because it sought to encompass a theme that is very close to my heart.

Working with a select group of talented female wedding vendors, including some, like myself, who are relatively new to the industry, we sought to inspire brides with a fine art fusion of femininity and strength.

Contrasting the softness of a 1950s chiffon dress and a silk Malene Birger gown, with bold makeup and simple, undone hair, we wanted to show brides that it is possible to look pretty and feminine, while also retaining a sense of their own identity and fierceness!
