Pretty Norfolk DIY wedding at Binham memorial hall with Grace Elizabeth Photography (32)
FEATURED

We’re kicking off this week with a gorgeous wedding – all done on a really reasonable budget, but absolutely beautiful all the same! I just adore Jess’s dress – it’s from Monsoon and she looks fabulous, don’t you think? Bridesmaids’ dresses are from Dorothy Perkins, and Tom’s suit is from Next. Together they’re just so perfect – I hope you’ll love their day as much as I do! They were married at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s witnesses with a reception at Binham memorial hall. All the images of their day are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Grace Elizabeth.

The flowers are by Myrtle and Moss, with blush pinks and natural colours with lots of foliage and a long stream of ribbon which flowed perfectly when it was windy. Emily & Sue did such an amazing job of our flowers and we also had some gorgeous hair pieces. Our venue was a blank canvas. We decorated the ceiling with draped fairy lights which made it look so pretty.

I love this genius little invention from the guys at Monsoon – they have researched historical weather data and used it to create a nifty little gadget which shows which dates are – historically – the wettest, in the hope that brides and grooms can stock up on brollies and suncream before the big day!

It’s a Nice Day for a Dry Wedding

I met lovely Tracy from The Flower House at a styled editorial shoot last September – and she’s one of the friendliest wedding creatives you could hope to meet. Tracy’s talents with flowers are a joy to witness:  her arrangements are thoughtful and beautifully arranged, with huge character and a fabulous contemporary style. They’re the focal point of today’s inspiration feature, which shows you how to style a bohemian wedding with rich tones for late summer. The images are by my lovely friend Jenny Heyworth Photography for Aspire Photography Training.

Styling has the trademark elegance of Emma from Tebbey & Co, who was assisted on this shoot by Catherine from White Feather & Co. The black candles and graceful brass candlesticks work perfectly with the floral arrangements – and don’t you just love that gorgeous mix of colours and textures? The little pink pointy flowers are Blushing Bride, which is very appropriate…

“Spend as much time together as possible on your wedding day – it goes so fast and it’s filled with so much love from everyone around you its easy to miss out a quite few moments alone together.

The best thing about being married is that you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend. Who could ask for more?”

I love today’s wedding for it’s classy sense of difference: there’s nothing normal or ordinary about Kate and Steve’s London wedding, and yet it’s as elegant as any wedding, ever, without trying to be quirky… the mark of a couple whose style and grace makes everything just fall into place beautifully.

Kate – today’s timelessly graceful and beautiful bride – and her husband Steve have been together for years and their wedding focused on friends and family. They still forget they’re married… and yet this wedding in its uniqueness will stick in my mind for a long time. I love to see a day which is different.

One of my favourite things about today is Kate’s interview (at the end of the feature). Very often brides write LOTS about their dress, and add a very brief note about the groom’s attire or bridesmaids / flower girls. Kate though… and I LOVE this… gives a resounding ‘nah…’ + one line to my question about her dress (which is stunning!) but writes 3 LINES about her adorable son (Batman bowtie – awesome!!) and daughter (sparkly shoes – awww!!).
