Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a nice morning so far. Whatever you’re up to I hope you’re keeping well wrapped up – I have taken to wearing my biggest scarf for cosy blogging this week! And today’s Ingatestone Hall wedding is one of my star weddings this week – an Ian Stuart dress, gentle pinks and traditional styling for a really classic and gorgeous English wedding day. I hope you love it!

Elizabeth and Paul had an elegant English wedding with a light colour palette, pretty details and some special touches: a horse and carriage, a string quartet and lots of lush pink roses! Elizabeth’s dress is the exquisite Coppelia by Ian Stuart – she’s absolutely stunning. I’ll hand over to Elizabeth for the wedding report and to wedding photographer Gary Roebuck for all the lovely images of their Ingatestone Hall wedding now. Enjoy the pretty! xxx

Sweet as candy – wedding inspiration & ideas

  • Feature pieces like pink chandeliers or candelabras draped in pink beads make all the difference – either go for sophisticated pink, or splash out and play with it to great effect! You don’t need to go to town, just pick out key touches and go for quality over and above quantity
  • Ask the little girl inside you what goes with pink and she’ll tell you: sparkle, diamonds, crystals and glitter. So add a little twinkle here and there with clear beads, silver and shine

Wedding inspiration – Pretty in Pink

Choose a focus for your wedding decorations – don’t spend a fortune on every detail, but choose something fabulous that will be a real talking point: in Suzy and Bruno’s case, the table centrepieces are statuesque and colourful with roses, feathers and foliage perched on glass pillars.

Keep your details elegant and simple: a wedding table plan focusing on word art is a great idea. Suzy and Bruno chose simple pink flowers for the four edges of their plan and an ornate black frame which I love.

An elegant white wedding cake with minimal detailing will create as much of a talking point as a richly decorated designer cake. Suzy and Bruno’s cake has bright pink ribbons and a fantastic jewel embellishment. The little cluster of roses on top of the cake adds charm to the cake table.
