How was your weekend? We’ve had blissful sunshine and a lovely sea breeze, perfect for a friend’s party and a day’s tidying up the garden… as it’s my main view when I’m blogging, it’s important my little flowers grow bigger than the weeds so I can see them! While I’m in a sunny mood, I’m all about sharing summer weddings on the blog, and today’s is just the perfect summer’s day.
Happy Tuesday lovelies! I’m blogging from my patio this morning… it’s not often we have glorious sunshine in the Lakes while the rest of the country is gloomy, so no apologies for making the most of it while it lasts! But I do have something to brighten your day and bring a little summer to your screens…
Judith and Mat’s wedding is wonderful for the flowers, for the glowing smiles on the faces of the beautiful bride and groom, and for bringing Millbridge Court back to the English Wedding Blog! It’s been two years since we featured a wedding from this fabulous Surrey venue, but I hope we’ll see many more in the years to come! It’s a blank canvas venue, with high ceilings and white walls… perfect for decorating with bright, vibrant touches as Judith and Mat did.
Hey lovelies! I’d like to share two things which make me happy with you today! The first is simple: sunflowers. Gorgeous, yellow petals full of summer colour – and they’re fabulous in buttonholes and bouquets, don’t you think? (DIY brides – you can plant sunflower seeds from March onwards!) Oh, and the second thing which makes me happy? A story of an affordable and still beautiful wedding. Joe and Gemma hired a village hall, made their own ‘wedding punch’ and used it as lovely centrepieces, hung bunting from the beams and celebrated in style without breaking the bank. Gemma’s dress is breathtaking… Their wedding was submitted by lovely Paul from Stylish Wedding Photography who told me a little about the day.
Jacqui’s gorgeous smile had me hooked on today’s real wedding from the very first moment I saw her. Wow. A beautiful bride and gorgeous groom who totally prove that a wedding is all about people: friends, family and being loved!
The details are there to inspire you of course: the fabulous bouquets by Etsy sellers including my favourite, Pumpkin & Pye; the wonderful cake display created by a friend; Jacqui’s stunning Monsoon wedding dress and the delicious styling of Gate Street Barn. You’ll love this!
