Today’s wedding inspiration takes nature’s most beautiful textures and tumbles them together in a beautifully soft cascade of blush and pastels. The simplicity is enchanting; the bridal look is blissfully beautiful. Huge thanks to lovely Beth (I owe you one, sweetie! xx) from Miss Carlysle and Co, who planned and sent in this beauty of a shoot! the glorious images are by Nikki’s Moments. The venue is South Farm and those fabulous florals are by Sara’s Events Flowers.

I will hand over to Beth to tell you more.

With love,

Rustic and Blush Barn Style with oodles of countryside charm (7)

We wanted to make the most out of the beautiful, countryside charm at South Farm with the long driveway leading up to the farm and barns. Preferably making the most out of the outside, to create a magical wedding day, and using the Tudor Barn, which has gorgeous, natural features throughout, creating a natural and relaxed vibe. We used the blush palette to add a sense of romance and elegance into the shoot.

Sustainable, vegan and organic wedding styling ideas from the UK (3)

Today’s wedding inspiration comes from the beautiful venue of South Farm in Cambridgeshire. Styling is rustic luxe with a focus on sustainability, incorporating organic fabrics, a vegan cake and ethically sourced glassware, all curated by lovely Janine at Waterfall Wedding Decor.

It’s becoming more and more viable to have a sustainable and vegan wedding in 2019 and beyond. Suppliers are switching on to sustainability more than ever before, and in every category from cake designers to stationers, wedding dress makers and caterers you WILL find a wonderful, ethical supplier if you put in a little research.

We love the vegan grazing stand produced by B and R Dining, set on luxury tables made from wood sourced from UK-based sustainable forests and ethically-sourced glassware from The White Company supplied by Waterfall Wedding Decor. Tara’s Halo & Wren dress is divine; teamed with bespoke accessories and shoes made by Rachel Sokhal the look is just dreamy; and my absolute favourite is the contemporary vegan square cake designed by One Part Love.

I think it’s the first time I’ve ever featured sleepy little piglets on the English Wedding Blog… but they’re sooo adorable!! And they’re the loveliest introduction to South Farm… a venue which today’s gorgeous bride will tell you is a worthy investment, a welcoming space and a fabulous place to get married!

Bex is more than gorgeous – she’s incredibly beautiful and looks radiant on her wedding day. She wears a divine wedding dress with the sweetest lace detailing, and her only accessory is the dried flowers in her hair (which are my absolute favourite thing!)

Bex and Rob sourced their wedding suppliers through venue recommendations and “good old-fashioned Google”, with friends and a very artistic family helping with invites and creative touches. Their wedding styling is wonderfully colourful and Bex’s paper poms are just stunning!

Did you know… that wedding cars don’t come with that frighteningly shiny ribbon as standard?! They weren’t manufactured with the stuff on back in the 1940s / 50s / 60s so don’t let their owners convince you it’s a fixture now! With a little creativity, an open minded car company(!) and the right team you can decorate your wedding car so it looks divine inside and out. I have a gorgeous shoot to show you and some more ideas at the end of today’s feature. Enjoy!

We (The Little Vintage Car Co.) collaborated with Dottie Photography and fellow wedding suppliers this summer to create a set of wedding images with a romantic vintage theme.”

This shoot has a fresh and stylish take on a classic vintage theme – the star of the show is beautiful convertible cream VW Beetle Carmen. Carmen formerly starred as a centrepiece in an American Diner so she is in excellent condition and perfectly at home in the limelight! The styling team also used a Chinese paper and bamboo parasol, a set of antique Harrods luggage and dresses from a local dress company Shades of White to bring the look together.
