I’ve made it no secret I have a ‘thing’ for messy wedding bouquets. I love seeing brides with armfuls of beautiful blossoms – and the statement bouquet is BIG for 2015. When lovely Gwenda from The Vintage Floral Design Co. got in touch I was in heaven! Her bouquets are divine: ‘informally structured’, creative and full of colour, texture and foliage.

Gwenda works creatively with flowers of all shapes and sizes to design statement bouquets for vintage inspired weddings with a boho feel. She says, “My signature style has been decribed as ‘new wave’ vintage; leaning towards the boho aesthetic; using seasonal blooms which are given a modern touch in terms of style, colour and composition – never mundane, always beautiful.

A stunning feature for your beautiful eyes today lovely readers: prepare to be inspired by feathers in this wonderful styled shoot from the London Wetland Centre. I was blown away by the images as soon as I saw them. Gold and vintage ceramic bunnies? Oohhhhh yes please! There’s an exclusive behind the scenes film on my Facebook page today as well – don’t miss it!

Dresses are by Charlotte Wilden – stunning gowns with all the grace of Swan Lake and then some. Feathers add softness and texture to the prettiest of concepts in cream and gold.  The glorious wedding cakes by Delicieux Cakes and tablescapes are creative and exciting – and it’s the unexpected little features which make them really special. Flowers and foliage are used with charm and elegance – they’re by The Vintage Floral Design Co.

The cakes are in a world of their own. Elegant tiered designs with subtle colours and tempting shapes. Decor is outstanding: the exquisitely sculpted flowers and leaves are fabulous. And those painted lovebirds on the top tier… simply perfect. I LOVE these!
