I’m doing everything I can to shine positivity into the interweb and keep our screens beautiful, inspiring and happy through difficult times. We all need a little joy, whether that’s from a spot of sunshine in our back gardens or from scrolling through favourite websites and wedding inspiration channels. I hope, lovely readers, today’s wedding will lift your spirits as it has mine. The happy couple are Emma & Adam, and Manor by the Lake wedding photographer Martin Dabek captured their day so beautifully.

As this was a January wedding, the colour theme was black and white with a hint of emerald green. Adding succulents to a foliage-filled bouquet kept the floral styling beautifully up to date, while ivy wreaths and creative lighting turned Manor by the Lake into an even more enchanting space. The overall look is minimal and classic, with some truly lovely handmade touches from this creative bride and groom. (Emma is an illustrator: @penningtonillustrations). The venue is a manor house and in itself is beautiful and didn’t need extra decoration, but their ‘winter package’ included fairy lights, white tree decorations and up-lighters. Emma and Adam added some ivy wreaths around the crystal chandeliers which really brought the room to life.

Kathryn & Daniel’s wedding is beautiful from beginning to end – I love the mirror and the lightness of the bridal prep photos – the portraits are amazing, the sunlight an absolute dream! And the details are really, really lovely – the flowers around the cake, the bouquet… just so pretty!

“We wanted our wedding to be simple and elegant. Flowers and sparkle were the big themes. Plenty of candlelight and romance! Think A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

I wanted a Midsummer Night’s Dream feel about our flowers. Roses were my main request, followed by Dendrobium orchids and hydrangea in colour tones from ivory through blush pink, coral, peach and deeper pinks, with a hint of lavender.
Our florists were again family friends and would be highly recommended, Samantha Artus at Copelands Flower Company did the most perfect job!
