When Alexandra met Lewis she was dressed as a devil. He was wearing “a 12 year old’s skeleton suit”… and they fell in love! They were married in June and their wedding is one of the loveliest classic English weddings I’ve seen. Alexandra looks divine in a Sassi Holford gown while Lewis is fabulous in a Reiss suit. Their theme was vintage travel, styled around a red post box which I love.

With stationery by Lucy Says I Do and fabulous flowers by Caroline Hodges, the styling of this lovely Devon wedding is classy and colourful. I love all the little details – and the portraits of gorgeous Alexandra and Lewis are just so romantic!

Today’s beautiful bride Sophie has given me some of the best quotes to use on the blog – and this is an all time favourite. The best thing about being married?The feeling of completeness, being absolute in the knowledge that you love one another unconditionally and that you are fully committed towards each other regardless of what life may throw at you.

Wonderful words and a heart-warming perspective – today’s wedding just happens to be deliciously pretty as well as meltingly romantic. I know you’ll love it as much as I do. This is a fabulous English country vintage wedding with oodles of inspiration and DIY ideas. Shilstone House even tried to buy Sophie’s handmade bunting after the big day… but the happy couple are keeping it for other family occasions (and what a lovely memory to have!) – that’s how lovely they made their day look!

Alice and Matt chose lots of delicate and pretty DIY touches for their beautiful Devon wedding. From the handmade bunting to the fantastic cheese cake, this is a wedding with a personal and loving atmosphere. I love how Alice and Matt wrote their table plan on the day of the wedding! – not recommended, as Alice says in her wedding report (towards the end of today’s feature) – but it proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to show your guests to their seats!

Shilstone House, Devon

Wedding photographer:

Dan Corbett. We cannot recommend Dan highly enough. Neither of us particularly likes posing for photos, and one of my pet wedding hates is a wedding photographer who dances around in the ceremony with a huge camera lens taking photos with a loud flash! Dan was perfect for us as he was the opposite of this! He was totally unobtrusive and the result is lots of lovely natural shots. http://storyandcolour.co.uk/
