Welcome to Monday, lovely people! I hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend. I have some wonderful wedding features lined up for you this week: today we begin with a gloriously spring-inspired Wiltshire wedding. Then we’re sharing a couple of breathtaking editorial shoots to inspire your wedding style: a rustic look and a classic English Rose wedding style photoshoot. Thursday and Friday are all about the real weddings once again (and you will LOVE these!) then we’re filing the weekend with ideas for wedding gifts and entertainment. It doesn’t really get much better than this… and today’s wedding sent in by Wiltshire wedding photographer Martin Dabek is just so wonderfully unique and beautiful – I’ve been excited to share all the glorious images with you!
It’s ALL about the florals today – gorgeous bride Katie and hubby Paul married in the summertime and chose all the glorious garden flowers – the stars are bright pink peonies, which nestle beautifully alongside roses and delphiniums, thistles and oodles of delicate greenery. The stunning images of their wedding are by our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography.
We knew we wanted a relaxed venue preferably in a barn so did a lot of googling. As soon as we visited Micklefield Hall we were blown away by the setting and how beautiful it was so knew it was the right place for our wedding.
Our florist was Andrew Fleming who was just brilliant. Our venue I think really did speak for itself however it was quite a large space so it did need some decoration which we did mostly with Andrew’s fantastic flower displays and our home made wedding signs. We dressed each table with wooden slices and a mixture of different vases of flowers in style and size finished off with tea lights.
Join me this morning for some especially beautiful wedding inspiration. This is right up my street – natural styling, eco-conscious and gorgeous ideas for a boho chic wedding celebration in one of the finest locations in the UK. We’re heading to Hendra Cottage in Penwith, St Just, Cornwall, with a super talented group of wedding suppliers whose vision comes to life in the most wonderful way. Words are by Wild Tipi weddings; images by Verity Westcott Photography.
The inspiration behind this shoot was to capture the rugged beauty of Cornwall’s north coast. Wild Tipi have just partnered with Hendra Cottage, Wedding and Events Venue – St Just in Penwith and we wanted to celebrate this with a wild Cornish coastal shoot. We hope to inspire brides and grooms with our use of nature; our ethos at Wild Tipi is to create stunning, individual weddings immersed in nature. Our tipis themselves are inspired by nature’s tree canopies and all of them are made in the UK from sustainable wood. We always endeavour to work with local suppliers here in Cornwall who share our ethos.
Today’s wedding style editorial is fabulously creative, with simple touches you can use for your own wedding day without breaking the bank. I adore the super pale florals with innovative accents: a darker succulent peeking out from a bed of delicately toned roses just looks divine! The cake is wonderfully elegant with soft buttercream and a sprig of perfectly placed greenery. The images are by our lovely friend Masha Unwerth, who tells us a little about her ideas for this wedding concept. There’s a full supplier list below, of special interest for any of you lovelies tying the knot in Berkshire. Have the most wonderful day everyone! I’m about to set off on a little Lake District adventure, scouting out a venue for teaching calligraphy workshops! Claire xxx
