Rainbows – the closest thing to magic we get to see in our English skies. I’ve never lost that girlish excitement I feel when I see one. I’ll stop in my tracks and grin up at the sky every time – and I definitely believe rainbows are lucky omens! So what better inspiration for styling a wedding? Rainbows have it all: luck and happiness, colour and fun!

Today’s English Wedding Blog feature is all about love and rainbows. Lovely Laura from Perfect Choice Planning got in touch to share this amazing inspiration shoot with me and I was hooked instantly. The images are divine, it features one of my favourite wedding industry friends Beth from Cakes by Beth, and the brides in the shoot are a real life couple –  their images have an exquisite tingly quality you’ll love!

The very least I can do to finish a bizarre and wonderful week is thank my friends for making it that way. The secrets will come out soon I’m sure. For now – an Oscars-style thank you goes out to:

Mat Hepplestone of Red Floral Architecture. Mat is a genius. Chris Hanley Photography. you already know how much I admire Chris and Claire. Marry Me Films. Meeting Tony and Sara for the first time on Monday, by Tuesday I was smitten with the pair of them. And I’m so excited to see the movie…

Joanne Linder, aka Vintage Twee. Joanne’s inner genius came out to play and had the best time ever! Not only is this designer gorgeous, she’s a star on set. Jo, you rock. Nia Fiori, glamorous artist and illustrator. Nia’s naughty side inspires her designs; her burlesque style and sense of humour shine in everything she does. And oh yes, she looks like a goddess. Truly!

Lisa from Diva Cakes got in touch following my articles about The Wedding Show at Tatton Park in January.

Lisa has done a lot of work with Mat from Red Floral – who you may remember was the star of the show! – and wondered if I would like to see some of the cakes she’d designed with Mat.

Would I?!!!

The Wedding Show at Tatton is known for having the north west’s top wedding experts as exhibitors. Nothing should have surprised me, and there were many exquisite stands which caught my attention straight away. But none were quite like Red Floral Architecture, which completely captured my imagination – I could have stayed admiring the stand for hours!

I had a lovely chat with creative flower designer Mat Hepplestone. I was probably quite embarrassing… but I had to explain just how much I loved what he’d done with his stand! There are flowers, there are wedding flowers, and there’s floral design with a difference. “Floral Architecture” sounds pretty grand – pretty ambitious I suppose. But the title fits Mat’s creations – and then some!!! Mat designs with flowers the way a top architect would design a cathedral: there are no limits to his imagination.
