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.

Discovering new talent is 100% why I’m even here – and sharing it with you lovely people is one of my favourite things. The Chosen Wedding Fairs have brought so many exciting suppliers to the pages of the English Wedding Blog, and one of the loveliest is Anna from Indigo Yard Floral Design. Her flowers have that intuitively natural beauty which I love so much: I could gaze at her arrangements for hours. We wanted to show you three distinct seasonal looks to inspire your spring, July and late summer weddings today, and I hope you love them as much as I do!
