How is your week going? Do you have sunshine? It’s been beautiful here… I think spring is my favourite season of all when it’s like this! I could almost be on my laptop in the garden right now!

We’ve had a week of beautiful weddings and features, and today’s is a real favourite: the relaxed and elegant styling is fabulous; Lucy & James are gorgeous and their day looks so much fun. It’s all beautifully captured by our friend and outstanding Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography.

Lucy’s Alice Temperley gown takes my breath away. The delicate embroidery and soft, swishing fabric of that fabulous skirt make this a true dream dress!

Having a boho / rustic wedding can still involve lots of styling and creative projects, and I fell head over heels for all the foliage in Lucy & James’s marquee – they made hazel frames running along all the tables and hung hops and other foliage from it – it looks fabulous. Even the bar is covered in hops! I love it!

Katie and Sam’s November wedding is traditional, elegant and still has the loveliest home made touches: the gorgeous couple married at Sussex favourite Pangdean Barn. From Katie’s veil to the place settings, every detail came together perfectly – and I’m thrilled for lovely Katie and Sam (who I got to know in the run up to their big day) that it turned out so beautifully.

I had the pleasure of working with Jane at Flowers & Daughters. She was fantastic as I only had a very vague idea of what I wanted, and being November, there were only a limited selection of flowers available. But she pulled out all of the stops and our flowers were brilliant. The colours worked so well with the venue as well as the bridesmaid’s dresses, and we had so many comments throughout the day on them. They were perfect.”

Hey there lovely! I am so pleased to be sharing Harriet and Declan’s wedding with you today. Harriet got in touch with me back in October to share their gorgeous day at Nonsuch Mansion. She told me, “we didn’t follow much of a theme, but I would say we had hints of traditional/vintage themes. We had pastel colours throughout but handmade most things.

Images are by Harriet’s photographer friend Barry Holder. Harriet looks stunning – she has the prettiest hair I’ve ever seen! There’s so much to see in this traditional English wedding and I’m sure you’ll find some ideas for your own big day in here.

Emma and Chris’s wedding has the loveliest atmosphere and a wonderful, bright and charming English country chic style. What a stunning couple… and I especially adore the back of Emma’s Justin Alexander gown, don’t you?

They were lucky with the weather, choosing a perfect sunny September day for their marquee wedding. From the early afternoon’s sunshine to the magical sunset, every moment just looks fabulous – and the light and airy marquee is set off beautifully with delicate flowers and gentle decoration.

If, like me, you live in a rural area or outside of the major cities, you might find it difficult to make it to the big wedding fairs and catwalk shows. Local wedding fairs are a world apart from the big shows in London and the bridal catwalks around the country can be very different from each other, often depending on the organisers of the wedding fair. Today we have a front row seat from one of London’s busiest wedding shows at Bluewater – all images are by London wedding photographer Louise Bjorling.

Beautiful jewel necklines, lace, dreamy textures, soft layering and vintage inspired details can all be found in this year’s bridal fashion – next to styles that have a more fitted, ladylike Grace Kelly / Jackie Kennedy reminiscence to them. All kinds of hues are right for this season – rich and vibrant colours as well as more subdued shades.
