Happy Friday folks! Do you have plans for the weekend? We’re off on adventures and I’m desperately hoping my back will hold out… turns out blogging is not the best for posture! I’m all achy and rattling full of ibuprofen this morning, yikes! But still… I can’t keep away from my desk as this gorgeous summer wedding is lightening my heart today. Beautiful bride Heather married Houw at Shustoke Barn on a sunny June day – their wedding is perfect for summer and I LOVE how full of colour the images are.

Jo at www.solihullweddingcreation.co.uk did our flowers, and they were perfect. A beautiful mix of colourful wild flowers. I was so happy with my bouquet and my bridesmaids’. My flower crown was just incredible. The button holes were awesome and the decorations throughout the barn were perfect, not too much and full of colour.

Our venue was a stunning converted barn with a church feel, huge windows and plenty of light. They had candles and fairy lights and indoor plants. We did hire a LOVE sign which gave it a beautiful touch.

Today’s images show just how exciting 2016 weddings will be. This week my inbox has been FULL of new collections of everything from dresses to stationery to cakes and every designer has incredible new ranges for 2016 brides and grooms. Which brings me to Indiebride. This collection was made for me… and oh, that black dress.

Indiebride is the brand new sister company to Minna. (See Minna’s vintage inspired boho dresses on the English Wedding Blog from earlier this year.) The Indiebride collection is for brides who want a dress which compliments their own style, which makes them look amazing without looking too much “like a bride” (this will be me!) and who  want to wear the dress beyond their big day.

There’s nothing more romantic than a barefoot bride… so for me, Minna‘s beautifully boho wedding dresses are perfect. Think hippy chic, summer days and messy bouquets for the prettiest relaxed wedding style you can imagine.

I don’t think I could ever choose a wedding dress from a big brand designer. Of course it’s just me (awkward, ‘creative’ and annoyingly alternative… hehe). But if this rings true with you too, and you actually do have to find a wedding dress, then the answer might have landed in my inbox just recently. Have you heard of Minna?

Minna designs ethereal and beautiful bohemian wedding dresses which are all handmade at her London studio. Ranging from floor sweeping gowns made from sumptuous silks, lace and hand embellished details to midi-length silk georgette and antique lace dresses, her collection retails from a very affordable £360 to around £800.bohemian wedding dresses UK by Minna bridal London (2)

It’s almost as if Minna wedding dresses were created with me in mind – the new collection, titled as “Love Letter” was inspired by an old petticoat and a love letter found from the local antique market. Perfect for a calligrapher, no?!

(I love the outdoors and my mountains here in the Lake District as well… although I’m not sure I could scale those heights in these gorgeous gowns and shoes!)
