Now back to that escapism – because we need a safe space online to indulge in a little wedding pretty right now! It’s springtime and we have the most wonderfully fresh wedding ideas with the prettiest florals and sublime stationery in delicate pastel shades. With inspiration drawn from the beautiful Georgian architecture at Rownhams House and the writings of Jane Austen of that period, today’s stunning bridal shoot is inspired by the romanticism, splendour and elegance of that era with a quintessentially English yet modern feel.

Happy Sunday my lovely! It’s a blustery one so I hope you’re staying safe and warm tucked up inside! While you’re all snuggled up and cosy, I have a stunner of a wedding to share with you today, courtesy of our fabulous friend and sponsor Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography. Beautiful bride Natalie and gorgeous hubby James were married in The Barn at Burley Manor last March – their rustic wedding day has everything (sooo much to Pin!) with lush flowers and foliage and joyful country charm throughout. The atmosphere is electric; these two are SO much in love! And the images are the kind of stop-in-your-tracks beauties you’ll be swooning over all day!

The Barn at Burley Manor in Hampshire is a great venue with a rustic charm. It’s beautiful in its own right so you can add as much or as little decoration as you want. We kept it to the foliage runners, some fairy lights on the beams, hessian bunting made by my mum and some candles in jam jars! We had some white chair covers and used some floral accents, again made by my mum, to keep the chairs in keeping with our style. We used wine as our table themes using bottles as centrepieces and grape varieties as table names. We continued the theme with bottles on fireplaces and in amongst the foliage decorations.
