Pastels are our favourite wedding palette – they have been for years and I doubt that will ever change. But it’s easy to forget there’s a gentle rainbow of pastel colours encompassing everything from palest dusky pinks through to barely-there olive greens, dove greys and soft corals… because pastel doesn’t only mean pink.

Today’s shoot puts forward a beautiful and very strong case for delicate blue pastel hues. The key colour is Serenity, which works well all year round; for cool winter weddings and soft pastel spring and summer ones. It gives you the ‘something blue’ and is incredibly calming, delicate and outrageously pretty, whilst maintaining that elegant feel.

If the words on the wedding cake (in scrabble letters) don’t make you feel all squidgy inside, then you’re all wrong. This is so lovely – such a personal wedding day, with some magical moments and creative touches – and a stunning bride and gorgeous groom.

I hope you like this intensely personal, Scrabble-inspired, handmade London wedding. Laura and Rich are both teachers and avid readers so what could be more fitting for their wedding theme than Scrabble?

After an elegant ceremony at Asia House, months of planning and lots of hand-made details transformed their reception venue (Icetank) into a shabby chic heaven complete with the wooden chairs, mismatched tablecloths and floral crockery. They’ve traded the traditional first dance for a violin/guitar performance and topped it all up by a flash mob dance surprise performance by the bridal party.
