I fell in love with these images of a wonderfully playful, quirky wedding look as soon as I saw them. I love the brave bridal style: a cute corset and the most amazing vintage-inspired petticoats look like so much fun, don’t they?! They’re made by Doris Designs in Surrey and I can’t think of anything I’d love to wear more! (I just can’t decide if I’d wear mine with bridal shoes or my rollerblades hehe)

I’m all for alternative bridal looks. Designer dresses are wonderful, but they can be expensive. Some of my favourite wedding blogs have had brides in colourful dresses, vintage styles, homemade dresses and more – so why not a quirky, adorably photogenic vintage petticoat? Imagine the fun you’d have dancing the night away!

Of course you could always wear a dress or skirt with your petticoat, and pop a top on over your corset… you’d still have that wonderfully playful vintage look. But for today let’s see the wonderful Doris Designs petticoat in action… there are links at the end of the feature so you can find out more, then it’s up to you to choose how you wear your petticoat on the big day!

OK – I admit defeat. If we can’t have any actual sunshine (as I type it’s nowhere near as gorgeous outside as it should be in mid-June!) then let’s make our own. Out of lemons.

I may have lost the plot just a little there, and it reminds me of summer evenings as a teenager trying to ‘organically’ make my hair blonder by putting lemon juice on it. Every day. But indulge me for a few moments and you’ll see! Today’s feature of quirky lemon wedding ideas is bright and pretty – and what better way to rebel against our unreliable English weather than to use lemons as summery wedding decor? They really do look fab!

Wedding photographer Kelly Weech decided to run a ‘rock the dress’ competition for a bride to wear her dress again. Today’s beautiful model Natalie was the winner of the competition as she suffered with a migraine on her wedding day and honeymoon, has lost weight since getting married and wanted more from her photographs.
