We’re not doing this Monday by halves, lovelies! We’re jumping right in to the week on English Wedding with a breathtaking, boho festival wedding which has everything. Gorgeous Victoria & Matthew’s day is brilliantly personal – the styling is done to perfection and its 100% uniquely THEM. The ceremony sounds amazing, with Aunty Jo (who told childhood stories and ended up with her own chant) in the role of celebrant.

Victoria’s incredible tasseled wedding dress is Woodrose by Willowby, from the highly recommended Heritage Brides. Matthew’s suit is from Master Debonair, discovered at A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London. Their day is captured beautifully (and with a wonderful focus on the entire ambiance of the day) by lovely Noemi at Thyme Lane Photography. I hope – actually I know – you will adore this.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

When we went to look at our venue, the owner showed us some pictures of a shoot that they’d just staged there the previous weekend. After seeing those photographs, there was no one else that we wanted for the job!

I read somewhere this morning that the average age for getting married is now 35 for women and 38 for men – which means plenty of us are tying the knot past the age of 40. Let’s celebrate that today, shall we? I’d love to see more wedding editorial with a wider age range… because this is an absolute BEAUTY of a shoot. As always with lovely Noemi from Thyme Lane Photography, the shoot focuses on the core of what’s important in marriage – and this is right up my street.

“We tried to give more inspiration showing how little money is needed to make your day very special. As you know, I am a big fan of minimal carbon footprint and maximum love involved. Absolutely everything is handmade or real vintage, I am trying to show couples how super versatile pre-loved and handmade things can be, no two inspirational shoots are the same even though the principles and values are.

When Noemi (Thyme Lane Photography) emailed me with this earthily beautiful elopement, she had my heart in a few words: “I just don’t think couples need to spend extreme amounts of money and stress a lot about their day, just have a few pretty details and love each other.”

Yes. That. Exactly that. We share every kind of wedding inspiration on blogs, from luxury weddings to intimate celebrations and elopements (and I’m on the lookout for a micro wedding!) but this – this is what makes me personally smile more than anything in the world. A personal celebration of love, a handful of STUNNING images, and some simple, ethical, wonderful details. It’s all you need. I will hand over to lovely Noemi to tell you more!

This shoot was intended to give couples inspiration who would like a quiet, intimate elopement with no pressure of a big day. It was all about feeling free and making your day completely your own. We focused on happiness, emotions, amazing light and beautiful but easily achievable details to any couples.

Today’s wedding style edit from Thyme Lane Photography is one of those that make my toes tingle for how perfect it all is. The tone is moodily beautiful, with boho elegant styling in a lovely English country house. The venue – Lanwades Hall, which is hidden in the Suffolk countryside – has the most stunning rooms with beautiful light and large gardens, and the team truly made the most of the amazing location.

The shoot shows how an almost completely monochrome, minimal scheme can work in a venue like Lanwades Hall and still create a lot of interest by giving contrast to the rich colours of the great variety of backdrops.

Inspiring the shoot was a 110 years old bridal dress which Noemi at Thyme Lane Photography used in 2 ways – to match the heritage of the venue and to contrast the brand new, handmade table and ceremony arch.

gorgeous scenery and so much romance - Lubov and Alexander's Cambridge elopement with Thyme Lane Photography (25)

Gorgeous couple Lubov and Alexander met a few years ago through work and he proposed to her in Paris on a romantic holiday. They moved to London and wanted a very intimate, romantic elopement just for the two of them somewhere simple and beautiful so they chose the meadows of Wandlebury Hill in the Cambridgeshire countryside. They wanted everything to be kept very natural, all about their feelings and nothing else. They were a shy couple but very much in love with each other – and their elopement pics are some of the most romantic and beautiful I’ve ever seen.

Today’s real elopement shows you don’t have to have a big wedding to be married. Marriage is a commitment; celebrating it is separate, entirely up to you and can be as public or as private as the two of you would like it to be. You don’t need wedding favours, stationery, a massive cake or even a venue, or a band or caterers. All you ever need is just two humans in love.
