So this GORGEOUS pair have all the summer feels! I adore the vibrant ribbons and fun, relaxed and beautiful styling of their Old Oak Farm wedding day. Sophie’s Watters gown and Loz’s TM Lewin suit are perfect for the occasion: their British grown, seasonal flowers are just divine for such a colourful, festival-style September wedding!

The venue is a completely natural beauty however as we wanted to make it colourful we added colourful ribbons and flowers. Our wedding flowers were created (and grown) by the amazing Kate from Windmill Farm Flowers. Kate works with the venue regularly and so was recommended to us and I honestly couldn’t fault her. We went for colourful and bright seasonal flowers, the flowers looked so amazingly beautiful and really made the venue come to life, they were also really reasonably priced for what we got. When our bouquets and buttonholes arrived I was blown away: they were everything I had dreamed of and more.

As we approach the end of 2018 I’m excited to discover new ideas for planning and styling beautiful weddings in the months to come. This year has been such a treat for the world of weddings, with more dark and sultry styling alongside fabulous tropical botanicals and metallic accents. Minimalism is set to be a new thing – and elopements are another trend I predict will grow even more in popularity in 2019. So I simply had to take you for a look back at another favourite ‘wedding’ from the English Wedding archives – it’s Emma & Simon’s wild and dramatic elopement on the Northern Irish coast. Their day was captured by Luke Flint Media.


 

I’ve seen about 1% of beautiful Northern Ireland – we have friends in Newcastle, and the tiny section of coastline I’ve seen is just wonderful. I’d love to explore more. Luckily via the blog I can… because today is one of the very best celebrations of love I’ve had the pleasure of sharing on English Wedding! Let’s escape to magical Dunluce Castle, on the northernmost tip of County Antrim, for gorgeous Emma and Simon’s breathtaking and romantic elopement!

The couple got ready together at home then went to Dunluce castle ruins for their ceremony. Emma wear’s a dress from Wtoo by Watters, and Simon’s jacket is from The Wedding Centre with trousers and shoes by River Island.  Emma’s bouquet is by Penelope Flowers. Some of my favourite shots are from Ballintoy Harbour, where the newlyweds headed to catch some last beautiful images before sunset. Photographer Luke says they had to climb a few fences and got a bit muddy but it was worth it – I couldn’t agree more!

This is wedding inspiration at its prettiest – a gorgeous wintry inspiration shoot combining  an exquisite contoured dress and a modern twist on the iconic beehive. The beautiful bouquet and buttonhole – by Charlotte from Moutan Flowers – is both textural and delicate. The bouquet continued gorgeous globe thistles, pretty pink cool water roses, the rich black dahlia, and snow berries for an added delicate pink and cream colouring.

Creating an editorial shoot for Wasing Park has been something I have wanted to do for a while, its gorgeous grounds, and diverse wedding buildings enable you to create something truly unique. My favourite space has to be the summerhouse: its charming mural of pale blue, almost oriental in style, creates the most perfect backdrop to a wedding.
