There’s something wonderful about winter sunshine, don’t you think? And there’s most definitely something wonderful about today’s style feature, which I just know you’re going to love.

We’re heading to the beautiful Coltsfoot Country Retreat with our wonderful friend Becky Harley Photography. This is such a wonderful venue, surrounded by beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, and one Becky speaks very highly of!

The two gowns are from Lisa Lyons Bridal
, and work wonderfully well alongside all the wintry styling elements. ‘Mira’ has the most exquisite subtle silvery winter botanical embroidery, and the glittery tulle overskirt is just divine for winter sparkle!

The ‘Stela’ lace dress from Lisa’s Modern Bohemia Collection is so elegant – delicate lace with an enchanting train and such a pretty neckline in an heirloom style which drops beautifully down to a backless V – it’s an incredibly beautiful gown and Becky has captured the detail of this dress with the most romantic photography – just wow!!!

Today’s feature captures both timelessness and fresh, modern styling in a dreamy wedding editorial from Natalie Stevenson Photography. The location is St Etheldreda’s church ruins, whose crumbling stonework and beautiful detailing inspired this breathtaking wedding style.

The fashion forward styling with elegant touches and delicate detailing is perfect for a 2020 wedding. The look is romantic; our bride looks graceful and sensual in Polish designer Anna Kara‘s Irvette gown from Morgan Davies Bridal – with distinctive wisps of tulle from the shoulders, lace reminiscent of waves rippling over the beach, and a deep neckline on the back of the gown. Hair is by By Lois and make up by Belles Beauty and accessories from Rachel Sokhal. The groom is dressed for the occasion in a classic tux and black tie.

The styling by Princess Occasions is beautifully done: the florals by The Flower Mill with such romantic tones are just perfect. The cake and stationery – by Meadowsweet Cakes and Olive and Millicent capture the timeless essence of this shoot in a subtle palette which I love! And driving our gorgeous couple right back to the sixties is a fabulous Aston Martin DB6 from VOWS Vehicles of Wedding Style.

Sustainable, vegan and organic wedding styling ideas from the UK (3)

Today’s wedding inspiration comes from the beautiful venue of South Farm in Cambridgeshire. Styling is rustic luxe with a focus on sustainability, incorporating organic fabrics, a vegan cake and ethically sourced glassware, all curated by lovely Janine at Waterfall Wedding Decor.

It’s becoming more and more viable to have a sustainable and vegan wedding in 2019 and beyond. Suppliers are switching on to sustainability more than ever before, and in every category from cake designers to stationers, wedding dress makers and caterers you WILL find a wonderful, ethical supplier if you put in a little research.

We love the vegan grazing stand produced by B and R Dining, set on luxury tables made from wood sourced from UK-based sustainable forests and ethically-sourced glassware from The White Company supplied by Waterfall Wedding Decor. Tara’s Halo & Wren dress is divine; teamed with bespoke accessories and shoes made by Rachel Sokhal the look is just dreamy; and my absolute favourite is the contemporary vegan square cake designed by One Part Love.

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today’s blog is all about lush, floral luxury – and unashamedly soft and feminine! The flowers are key to this look, which just oozes glamour and classic wedding style. A brand new wedding venue for 2018, The Barns at Redcoats in Hitchin, Hertfordshire has been lovingly restored by its owners and this provided the perfect opportunity for a team of highly creative wedding professionals to create a haven of elegance, opulence and romance through beautiful blush pinks, golds and pops of navy. The images are by Bedfordshire wedding photographers Bond Photography – a unique father & daughter team who work so well together capturing beautiful weddings all around the UK.

I adore the stationery by Olive & Millicent – the wax seal is fabulous and the foliage illustrated around the edges of the invitations is just beautiful. To add a luxury element, the suite was finished with a vellum wrap with gold detailing. The stationery for the table was hand calligraphed on clear acrylic to work alongside the stunning floral display.
