Dearest lovely readers, I hope today’s wedding blog will make you as happy as it does me! This has everything… urban, rustic, bakey and bright, with beautiful images (Photography by Kathryn), fabulous floral arrangements (Katie Laura Flowers) and even a dash of calligraphy (Calligraphy for Weddings). Oh! And mouthwateringly pretty cakes, bakes and pies (Cobble Kitchen) 🙂

Spring weddings tend to feature lots of soft pastels and mix the most delicate yellows with similar shades. Today we’re stirring things up a little with bright, exciting spring florals with a real creative twist. Imagine this style at your wedding venue… because I think the genius girls behind it have come up with an ultra versatile look which will suit pretty much anywhere, don’t you?

The best thing about today’s shoot – as with every shoot I feature – is that it could be all yours. Shoots are all about showing couples how amazing a wedding can look when you hire the right team to style your wedding day. Every supplier featured today comes very highly recommended because I’ve seen and loved their work over and over again.

Whether you choose a single statement piece – a shining star, a stunning bouquet, a dress dripping with back jewels – or a combination of the elements from the shoot, you’re guaranteed wow factor. Personally I would start with the flowers… Katie Laura is one of the best wedding florists I’ve seen on blogs this year and she’s going to be ridiculously popular, I just know it!


Maybe it’s blogs, I don’t know… but I’ve seen more statement bouquets over the last six months than ever before. Gone are the tidy teardrops and perfect circles, now English brides are choosing gloriously messy, cascading, multicoloured and rustic armfuls of flowers… and it’s one of my favourite wedding trends.

I wanted to show you a handful of examples, some favourite bouquets and ideas to set your Pinterest boards on fire! I asked florists and photographers on Facebook to share their very best – an excuse to share lots and lots of insanely pretty flowers on the English Wedding Blog. And the suggestions came flooding in…

Statement bouquets: big, bold and beautiful

Make a statement with the size and style of your bouquet! For flower lovers, this is all the excuse you’ll ever need to hold the most amazing flowers you can imagine! I adore Katie Laura Flowers‘ style and approach to floral design: creative and carefree, with the loveliest colour combinations and lots and lots of fabulous foliage.


I adore the natural look when it comes to wedding flowers. Rustic flowers just look as though they’ve been lovingly put together… for me I think the appeal is seeing flowers which don’t look manufactured. Do you know what I mean? As though they’ve been carefully gathered by a nice person who loves flowers and creating beautiful things (vs. uniform bunches wrapped in cellophane by Interflora or stabbed with diamantes…) with rustic, natural flowers it’s easier to love them back.

I stumbled across the loveliest blog feature by Katie Laura Flowers last month. Katie is a Yorkshire lass who launched her floristry company “so I could delve into the world where design meets nature with flowers & foliages.” She loves twigs, writes with real passion and has a talent for creating textured, luxurious wedding flower designs with a fanciful twist! Katie writes about natural, rustic wedding flowers and shows how she creates a gorgeous bouquet with more character than you can shake a twirly twig at! I love this… over to Katie!
