Good morning, beautiful! Today we’re sharing a key look for 2019 weddings – one that can be recreated easily once you ‘get’ the styling concepts – and one I know will make 2019 a year of weddings to remember. It’s all about understated elegance with careful attention to a few quality details. For me this is a look of almost effortless wedding style – combining simple, minimal details with the smallest touches of real luxury and softness. The florals are absolutely key: delicate and feminine blooms in a soft palette of ivory, nude, blush and soft peach with pops of glorious coral. Texture comes from hare’s tail grasses and striking white anthuriums, while white lilac and butterfly ranunculus bring softness to the look. The colours are what I love most about today’s floral design: those carefully arranged coral blooms really make the arrangements look contemporary and luxurious, don’t you think?

I’m a bit of an Instagram junkie, I admit. I also have weekends where I binge on Pinterest – once I start, I just can’t stop. If I was planning my own wedding I’d end up in some sort of ‘Pursue Pretty’ rehab. Is it just me?

I have been reading some of the interviews you’ve been sending in for wedding features – I’m so lucky to have such amazing girls and guys getting involved in the blog, and soooo many amazing weddings to share! – and I love how everyone finds their suppliers in different ways.

But did you know the English Wedding Blog is designed to matchmake you with amazing (local) suppliers?

Nicola told me “I read lots of blogs and did a lot of Pinteresting for inspiration, but Instagram was brilliant for finding local suppliers and seeing real life images of their work.”

Two of the loveliest secrets to styling a romantic, feminine and timeless wedding are fabrics and foliage. Opt for luxe napkins and calligraphy place names instead of favours; and choose ferns, leaves and opulent foliage to create texture and include nature in your day. I’m so in love with this shoot by One Stylish Day – I hope you adore it too!

Blush & Grey is pure and natural with a lightness of touch and sensual undertones, with the innocence heightened by using British florals, creeping foliage and ripe fruit.  Create the look by using antique silver cutlery and sparkling cut glass on tables, teamed with contemporary organic crockery for an indulgent feel.  Use flowers and foliage in abundance, letting them take over tables and trail to the floor.

Pale watercolour blush pink and soft dove grey give a dreamy quality to this look.  Soften the table décor by placing a handful of dried petals in antique silver trays and glass boxes.  When it comes to the cake, less is more; a simple and elegant duo of white wedding cakes with added flowers and fruit is chic and luscious.

I know it’s too early to start talking about 2018 wedding trend predictions… but every time I see a shoot like this I want to sing from the rooftops! Darker colours are going to be big next year: we’ll see a dramatic shift from pastels and neutrals to really rich shades of everything. Midnight blues, moonlit greens and opulent plum colours with metallic accents are going to be the hottest trend going… and so today I’m thrilled to be sharing this gorgeous tablescape shoot by lovely Louise at One Stylish Day with you.

Moody Hues is dark, theatrical and bold, softened by layering deep shades of navy and mauve with black, and bathing the whole look in delicate candlelight. Create the look by using black crockery, gold cutlery and dark, elegant glassware, and team with long trailing black table linen to enhance the high drama effect.

Today’s wedding is more than amazing – so many breathtaking images and a fabulous wedding report (with equal doses of advice, emotion and chuckles) from beautiful bride Laura.

There is a subtle map theme to the day, but overall the style is relaxed, intimate and LOTS of fun! Laura told me “It was like being in a candy-floss cloud…” and when I asked about her Naomi Neoh dress she said “I put her on (blush pink and softer than angel hair) and did not want to take her off… ever.

I’ve always loved The Belle Epoque as a wedding venue. In the early days of The English Wedding Blog I featured so many weddings there… but it’s been a little while and I’ve missed the place! It’s a quirky boutique venue with tons of character – perfectly fitting for Andrew and Laura.
