Jack and Catherine’s wedding shone from my inbox – their images are so fabulously vibrant, and their day is full of joy, laughter and love. I adore Catherine’s bespoke dress, the floral styling and the ambience of the day which makes me smile every time I look at their photographs. This is amazing and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Our wedding flowers were arranged by Sian and the team at The Flower Lounge, Didsbury. We really cannot recommend them enough, their creations are absolutely stunning and they surpassed any expectations we had. We were overwhelmed by how beautiful the bouquets and table centre pieces looked.

We created a “draw your own self portrait”, inviting guests to draw a little doodle of themselves on a giant gold framed easel, as an alternative to a guest book. We sprayed jam jars gold to hold tea lights and flowers. We hung gold frames from trees so guests could pose behind them for selfies and filled a three tier garden planter with nibbles and treats to keep the guests going throughout the day. They went down really well and we enjoyed creating all the homemade elements of our wedding. Also, with it being late September we knew it could get a little chilly, so provided a basket of blankets to keep our guests warm and cosy.

Hasn’t it felt as though spring is finally here this week? I’ve been walking in the hills before work each morning and enjoying the warmth of the sun on my face – it’s been bliss! And so I wanted to bring a little springtime to the blog for you today. This shoot is full of delicious florals and beautiful Charlotte Balbier gowns, in the loveliest natural setting… and showcases a whimsical bridal style which is just perfect for the warmer months.

Sticking to seasonal flowers such as gorgeous tulips in a fresh crisp colour palette really brought the colours, textures and scent of spring to life. Utilising fresh flowers in the hair really co ordinates the look. Pamela Dunn created delicate texture using sheer voile fabrics – a perfect idea for softening any venue or backdrop.

Our springtime brides’ hair was kept soft and natural – beautiful curls and a rustic fishtail plait completed the look. Fresh floral crowns created a stunning focal piece.
