Did anyone watch Derren Brown’s “Fear and Faith” and remember the part where – as if by magic – some of us could smell mint at home? If you were one of the lucky ones who picked up on the minty fragrance, you’ll be delighted to hear English Wedding Blog is doing the same trick today, with lavender wedding ideas.

Kind of… 😉

I’ve been looking forward to sharing today’s Cotswold Beauty lavender wedding ideas shoot with you. The images are by my wedding photographer friend Jonathon at Photoglow photography in Gloucestershire, who teamed up with Jane from Planned for Perfection and some other fab wedding suppliers to visit Snowshill Lavender Fields last year. The photos are so amazing you can practically smell the lavender, I swear!

I love lavender – it helps me sleep and reminds me of my Nana and my Grandma – it’s just one of those fragrances which is timeless and comforting too. What could be more perfect for a wedding day scent? If you’re considering incorporating lavender into your wedding day, you’re going to LOVE this!

Parma violet wedding inspiration board in purple

Hands up who loves Parma Violets?! I do. And I do even more now I’ve seen Jayne and Phil’s parma violet inspired wedding reception at the Lowry, Manchester. With all photos by Chris Hanley Photography, take a peek at this fab wedding inspiration board – it’s purple-tastic.

Jayne and Phil’s wedding was at The Lowry in Manchester, a modern theatre with creative interiors in every colour you can imagine. The wedding reception room however is a blank canvas, so Jayne and Phil chose shades of purple to make it look amazing for their wedding day.

Jayne’s purple wedding bouquet was a cluster of pale violet freesias and darker purple hydrangeas. If you’re having a violet or purple wedding theme check with your florist which flowers will be in season. Purple roses are popular all year round; freesias spring-summer and hydrangeas throughout the summer period.

Chairs were covered in white and tied with a purple sash in organza fabric.
