I love this idea! A group of local wedding suppliers coming together to create something inspiring, with no preconceptions, no rules, just creative freedom… and the result is a stunning shoot with a fabulous tablescape and tons of gorgeous greenery. This is wonderful.

Who says you have to hire a venue for your wedding? If you have space at home for an intimate wedding, do it your way. Whatever space you find – a farmer’s field for your teepee or a village hall with a sports field you can play on – don’t be scared to be creative with today’s prettily rustic styling ideas based around a chic back garden village wedding.

Exquisitely You and Charlotte Bryer-Ash styled shoot for chic back garden wedding style ideas (7)

Lovely Rachel from Exquisitely You got in touch to show me her ideas for a simple back garden wedding style. The shoot is sweet and adorable and has some lovely statement pieces: the chandelier from Linen and Lace is wonderful while Clair Lythgoe‘s flowers are just breathtaking… and the little daisies in our bride’s hair are the prettiest things I’ve seen… LOVE these!

Hey there beach brides! Today’s feature is for you – from our own fair shores I have a fabulous seaside styled shoot to share. There are ideas here for every girl who’d love a beach wedding – and all from local wedding suppliers too!

Beach bride styling on the Dorset coast with Charlotte Bryer-Ash (25)

Wedding photographer Charlotte Bryer-Ash told me what inspired her to create this shoot, which she planned together with Rachel from Exquisitely You. It’s all about clean, minimal styling with a relaxed seaside feel. I adore the backdrop – a simple timber frame with soft fabric is just perfect for the beach setting.

Being a beach bride means embracing nature. Combine rustic elements for a minimal and relaxed wedding style. Soft colours and textures reflect the romance of the sea. Clair Lythgoe uses a lush peach dahlia as a centrepiece for a stunning bridal bouquet edged with cascading green amaranthus. Opt for wooden cake stands and table decor as the team did on today’s shoot, and be creative with your cake if you’re having one. Twists of raffia complement roses and hydrangeas for a gorgeous design with colours and textures.
