Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

I like to think the role of wedding blogs is to mix things up a little. While there are always key themes for any wedding season, it’s nice to throw something wonderfully, excitingly different into the mix from time to time. So when lovely Helen from Pudding Bridge showed me this glorious shoot with dusky blues and peach blooms I simply had to share it with you! Images are by James Green Photographer – a full supplier list is at the end of the feature.

Helen – who you might well know as country house wedding planner Pudding Bridge – worked in partnership with the wonderfully talented Caroline Bowater of Foxy Buds, a florist based in Bradford on Avon.

“We wanted to show couples how you can use a darker, non traditional colour scheme for a summer wedding. We used a dusky blue as the base and mixed in stunning whites and peach blooms to really make the blue stand out.
