Today’s wedding is another treat; a beautiful celebration with stunning florals and styling – but most importantly for me, with a brilliant sense of humour and some amazingly fun moments. Sarah and Michael were married at Mapperton House in Dorset, and opted for a vibrant colour palette and gorgeous styling touches. The bouquet is a stunner: orange tones and corals alongside blues with roses and dahlia blooms, cornflowers and agapanthus, freesias (I think!) and sweet peas.

Sarah and Michael’s colour palette was cobalt blue and orange – because, in Sarah’s own words, “my engagement ring has a sapphire and my husband and my family are ginger. Therefore, my shoes were cobalt blue jiving shoes, as we love to jive. I also had sapphire earrings to match my ring and a pearl necklace that was my grandma’s who unfortunately passed away when I was young. I also had a beautiful hair piece which matched my hair and the pearls of the necklace.”

The floral styling is superb for today’s wedding – say hi to beautiful Laura & gorgeous Kevan who married at High Billinghurst Farm last summer. They were blessed with gloriously hot weather for their celebrations in the Sussex countryside – and while tipis were set up nearby, the temperatures meant their dream of a woodland wedding was destined to come true.

We’re taking a fascinating behind the scenes look at the wedding today, with lovely Kim at Bespoke and Beyond Weddings & Events. Kim’s story begins on the Thursday morning with the arrival of three giant hats from Beautiful World Tents. I’ll hand over to Kim who can tell you all about her vision for this stunning celebration, and how the wedding came together beautifully, creating a truly magical woodland wedding for Laura & Kevan.

What can I say about these lovely two?… they’re gorgeous. Their wedding is just as gorgeous. The spirit of their day is fun and full of character – and there are so many fabulous little touches I know will inspire you. Chloe & James – we love your wedding!

We had a cake made by James’s mum and all the flowers were also handmade from sugar paste. My sister made the confetti from dried rose petals and we used the handmade bunting she had for her wedding 4 years earlier. My mum made the place scrolls and handwrote each guests name and menu choices. My parents also made the table plan display from old book covers. It really made it such a special day having people contribute.

Jonny and Amelia make the most adorable couple! Their Dorset wedding looks beautiful; and they tell a story of a beautiful celebration filled with love and laughter. I’m over the moon to be sharing their wedding on the blog today. The overall style is country chic, with wonderful details from flowers to corn dollies. Watch out for the lovely milk churns in the wedding marquee – they’re brilliant! My favourite touch has to be Amelia’s Dad’s surprise… but you’ll have to read on to find out more!

Images are by the very lovely Tom Redman, and at the end of the blog today you’ll find Amelia and Jonny’s wedding report and list of recommended wedding suppliers. I hope you love this wonderfully sunny, warm and charming wedding as much as I do! I almost feel as though I was there… it’s just fabulous. And isn’t Amelia stunning? Enjoy! Claire xxx
