Laura and James were married at Yorkshire’s gorgeous Cubley Hall, in the summer. Their day is perfect: captured in a beautiful fine art style, with the whimsical wedding details I love so very much. The flowers are divine – oh, those peonies! and Laura looks more than amazing in a beautiful wedding dress from designer Emma Tindley.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had an amazing holiday and enjoyed the 100 real weddings I featured on the blog over Christmas. Time now for the first real wedding of 2015… and it’s just gorgeous. I love the little details today’s bride and groom created for their day – their attention to detail is wonderful; there is plenty here to inspire your own big day and I know you’ll love it!

Siobhan is beautiful, wearing a lace dress with a delicate belt. Her accessories are fabulous – and I adore her bouquet, by Leonora Rose. The styling of the day is a highlight though – with friends and family all pitching in to help with stationery design, decorating, table arrangements and the seating plan there’s so much to see!
