A Country House Wedding

These lovely pair were wed around the 30 May at, around the banks of the River Stour in rural Dorset.

Caroline appeared as if a dream in her gorgeous dress, which she discovered in Southbourne, close to Bournemouth. I love the cross-over plissé pleating at the front of the bodice, with delicate lace behind, and it is pretty off-the-shoulder straps.

"I loved that the prom dresses was fairly simple, yet it's this gorgeous lace back, which I adored. It also was built with a lovely tulle skirt, which was something I was interested in from the start, also it had the boho vibe I wanted. It was also a little bit sexy, that was something I didn't fully realize I wanted!"

Caroline wore pink wedges inside a soft, dusty shade, as well as for jewelry, a delicate pearl pendant necklace. Her big day perfume was among her favorite fragrances – Daisy by Marc Jacobs.

The bridesmaids wore flower crowns, and maxi dresses and Caroline and Stuart's son Jacob (who had been 2 once they were married) wore a good little outfit.

"My dad accompanied me on the aisle. I wouldn't have experienced it every other way. We asked Ant from your band if he could play Here Comes the Sun by The Beatles whilst I walked on the aisle."

"Stuart and I first met in Salisbury, whenever we were about 14 years of age. We spent lots of our teenage life together, either as friends or as a couple. We were together throughout the university, and after graduation this year, we bought our first house together."

"After living together for 4 years, in 2015, Stuart proposed at The Headland Hotel in Newquay, around the cliffs, whilst we watched the sunset. It would be a complete surprise! We started wedding ceremony planning straight away, but simply 1 month later, I found out I was pregnant with this son. Wedding plans got placed on hold, and we decided to get married after the baby arrived."

Stuart wore a deep blue herringbone tweed three-piece suit from Racing Green. He paired it having a shirt and shoes.

Everything was captured exquisitely by their photographer, who found the most amazing settings and picked up on all of the gorgeous details.

"Sam was recommended to us through the photographer that shot my sister's wedding. We loved my sister's photographer and wanted an identical style of photography, but simultaneously, we wanted to make use of someone different. Sam was amazing from start to finish!"

"Her photos are extremely creative and delightful, and captured a lot of lovely natural shots of both us and our guests. Sam is an extremely talented photographer, as well as a fantastic people person. All the guests commented how lovely she was."

"There were many times when I just thought it wasn't all likely to come together, but having a group of very professional, friendly, reliable, and talented suppliers I was in great hands! Without them, your day wouldn't happen to be what it had been."

A Nature-Inspired Tipi Wedding

You'll see among her gorgeous, sparkling pieces within the rustic, rural wedding I have to reveal to you all today. Primary school teacher Gemma and wedding photographer (of ) were married around the 29 May at in one's heart of the Nottinghamshire countryside.

I love the gossamer fine fan motif lace around the prom dresses, and also the dropped waist using its contrasting silk ribbon.

"The informality from the contrasting lace design immediately caught my attention, and I knew which was the dress I'd be wearing. It was the very first gown I had ever tried on, also it felt luxurious but comfortable, and I fell deeply in love with it instantly."

"We chose to make some bespoke changes; deciding to raise the neckline and lengthening the sleeves, both working beautifully to help create the relaxed style I had envisaged."

"People prefer to tell you that you 'just know', but I always thought which was a thing people said simply because they had exhausted all possibilities and were bored. Turns out it truly is true, and I only agreed to be lucky it took one attempt."

"Although there is no kneeling recorded on one knee, mysterious dinner, are you going to marry me a proposal, there would be a ring. I knew I wanted something unique that wouldn't be viewed by other people, but more importantly, I wanted it so that it is ethical. I fell deeply in love with 'Amina', a rustic yellow diamond occur hammered gold. We loved her designs much that we asked Shakti to create my wedding ring ('Aria') as well as an eternity ring ('Mimi')."

The bridesmaids' lovely chiffon dresses were by FeelTimes. On their feet, they wore their very own choice of gold shoes, plus they all wore gold Swarovski crystal hairpins, too.

"The flower girl's dress was customized by, a little independent business within Britain. Georgie also wore a flower crown by our florist."

Zoe produced an excellent suite of stationery in deep blue, teamed with pink and gold, including a welcome sign, seating plan, and put cards.

"The venue looked beautiful because it was coupled with we not desired to, we're able to have left it because it was also it still would've worked, but we desired to put our very own stamp on things. The beams from the tipi were draped in foliage, as were the tables."

"We added a variety of gold candle holders and chose light pink and deep blue scented candles and tea lights to produce warmth and softness. We also scattered succulent plants in gold pots around the tipi. It was subtle, but we felt like we'd made our mark in some manner."

A Winter Inspired Glasshouse Wedding

Heather is Senior Press Officer in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and Josh runs a London-based tree surgery business. They were married around the 21 December 2019 – the wintertime solstice – inside a church ceremony and then a reception at a luxury country retreat, in South West Devon.

"We both love Christmas, so choosing to get married only at that special season helped shape your day, and we went for green and gold tones. We had the vision of candlelight everywhere, Christmas songs, mistletoe, mulled wine, and sloe gin."

"The bridesmaids' dresses were from FeelTimes and were long-sleeved, glittery, and incredibly festive. They sparkled within the candlelight within the church and looked amazing."

Once Heather and Josh had determined a winter wedding, Heather began the search for any long-sleeved dress. She also wanted something easy and classic and located just the right dress by in Elephant and Castle, South London.

"The dress I loved was one from Justin Alexander, but it had been from several seasons ago, so my mum rang up searching for stockists within the UK, and one from the few shops to have it had been London Bride UK in Elephant & Castle."

"I wanted so that you can wear a veil for that church service and am glad I did – it felt very traditional and separated my outfit in the church towards the reception."

Heather was accompanied on the aisle by her dad, Neil, plus they walked to Florence and also the Machine's song, The End of Love performed.

"We met in school, sitting alongside each other in Maths in year 9. We remained friends throughout and lastly became a couple after Josh finished university in Leeds, and I am in my final year at Cardiff this year. We got engaged around the Isle of Skye, Scotland in July 2018 at Dunvegan Castle – the home from the McLeod clan, my loved ones' name, which would be a very nice touch."

"The church service was my favorite part during the day, which I wasn't expecting. Walking into the church to 1 of my favorite songs being played through the choir, and also seeing Josh and all sorts of our family and friends in the candlelight was probably the most amazing feeling. It just set a dark tone perfectly for that rest during the day, that was the best day in our lives."

Words of Wedded Wisdom

"You can plan and plan and plan, but around the day before, and the day itself just attempt to let it all go. After your day, I remembered lots of tiny stuff that I had forgotten to use to brighten, but I wanted to enjoy the weekend so that as everyone began to arrive those small things didn't matter. My advice is always to go with the flow and don't lose yourself within the organization."

A Balloon Filled Park Wedding

Lovers of color – especially pink – you're in for any treat today; likewise, if you're a film buff, too, since the wedding I have the pleasure of sharing comes complete with thoughtful, personalized touches reflecting our couple's love, as well as their favorite things.

In her hair, Melissa wore two pretty Avalanche roses, and carrying out a recommendation from the friend, her radiant make-up look was made by. Emma extremely kindly helped Melissa look for a second make-up artist for her bridesmaids –.

"Alison is lovely and simple to liaise with. I booked her to assist with the makeup for three bridesmaid dresses. The girls were all thrilled together with her, and like Emma, she was super professional but warm and fun to possess with us in the morning, I am just sad I cannot have these women beside me every morning! Every single one of these made every meeting so faff free, set up all their things, cleared everything away, mucked along with anything else which was going on whilst these were waiting for someone – just amazing."

As a nod towards the past 10 years, the couple has spent residing in London, the marriage car would be a white Hackney cab hired from. Balloons adorned the church entrance, and also the whole way on the aisle, too, for Melissa's walk to satisfy James, together with her Dad.

Melissa's sweet flower girls looked lovely in pink high-low hem dresses with appliqué roses, worn with pink bow-adorned shoes, and crowns of gypsophila produced by a friend.

"The bridesmaids' dresses were from FeelTimes. FeelTimes' dresses were so pretty, a much better color match to my dress compared to dresses I'd originally chosen, and more importantly, passed the enhanced comfort test!"

James wore a beautifully cut blue suit, designed for him bespoke at their Carnaby Street boutique in London. In keeping using the floral beauty of your day, the younger crowd wore a floral print tie and pocket square and accessorized with dinosaur cufflinks. James was supported around the day by his two Best Men, Glenn and Luke, who wore three-piece suits from.

"Jim proposed within the kitchen within our new home in Peckham, London. I am in my pajamas, as well as for once home before him, reading a magazine on the kitchen table. He looked really smart but had said he'd had parents' evening (he'd been collecting the ring) so I didn't think a lot of it."

"When he proposed I was blindsided, of course, presumed I would have guessed/seen it coming. Such was my shock he wound up having to propose again once I had regained the strength of speech – and also the next 1.5 years were incredible."

"Everyone is happy for all of us and I am proud of Jim. He hates surprises, and I love he couldn't wait and couldn't bear the strain of hiding the ring so proposed the moment he collected it – it had been very Jim, and that's how everything ought to be; how you wish to do things and what feels best for you – which was what our wedding was about."

"We were together for 5 years whenever we got married and met inside a bar in Islington. Jim sat on the speaker he thought would be a stool and wore novelty socks. Despite that, our first meeting went smoothly, and it had been 'us' thereafter."

We have fantastic photographers and videographers to thank for both these beautiful images, as well as for that wonderful highlights film, too.

A Dress for any Laidback & Lovely Spring Wedding

We frequently received positive feedback around the breadth of various weddings we publish on our favorite wedding blog.

"The type of the day fell together very easily – neither person wanted a completely white wedding. I liked the thought of having quite wild and colorful flowers which fitted well using the aesthetic as a venue, the relaxed party feel we wanted, and achieving the wedding in April – an ideal time for spring flowers."

The couple used Papier for their wedding stationery, opting for any modern, watercolor design that reflected the dark tone of their florals.

Their ceremony occurred at St James’s Church in Clerkenwell.

"We hired the gospel choir within the church also it was so fun. I saw a relevant video online of these singing ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered, and also got it during my head that I required to have them at the marriage singing that once we left the church to start the party."

"Mike wore a conventional morning suit from – I think it was the plan all along but he only ordered it the week before."

"I ordered my prom dresses online on the website – I saw the gown during a nighttime internet shopping/scrolling session whilst track of our baby quite right after we got engaged and instantly liked it."

"I didn't believe strongly about wearing an effective wedding dress and when I tried my dress around the decision is made really – it felt nontraditional without having to be too alternative and I loved the color and detail and may imagine it working well having a wild spring flower bouquet."

"Mike and I met at university and were together for 11 many had our son before we got engaged. We got engaged in August 2018 and married 8 months later- I was quite keen that people had the marriage before I went back to operate after maternity leave as life was certain to get more hectic then."

"We wanted to get married later in your day (our big event started at 4 pm) so I find the date to fall following the clocks changed so that it would be light for that first bite from the party and, ironically in retrospect, to prevent the planned date for Brexit."

"I also hoped that by April it might feel a lot more like spring as once the sun shines I feel like individuals are most up for any party!"

The couple hired a photographer to document their day.

"We liked the type of Matt’s photographs – they're informal and inventive. Looking back in the photos description of how they capture the power of your day and the fun that people had."

"My husband hates having his photo taken and because we've got married later in your day we desired to get to the party and never spend too much time on photographs only the two people."

"We kept the photo session following the ceremony short (I think under 30 minutes including getting some family shots) but Matt got lots of photos people, with this baby and with this wider families."

"We didn't possess a first dance – which was actually among my main fears of the wedding was having to get it done and then I realized I could just choose not to."

"The party area was crowded, a little sweaty the ones were shouting for more in the end from the set that is exactly how I wanted so that it is!"

School Sweethearts in a Romantic French Chateau

Welcome towards the wedding of Hannah and Will, who have been married around the 27 July 2019 at, Plagne, in South West France. These touchingly candid, elegant, and evocative images arrived at us thanks to our directory member. Based in South West France, Corrina offers contemporary heirloom photography to become treasured.

"One of the best bits of advice I can give couples is don't underestimate how important the photographer is – they'll spend the whole day along with you and be part of your most intimate moments. Not only is she really a beautifully creative photographer, but she's also an incredibly genuine and warm person. Having her around felt like another friend at the wedding. We would wholeheartedly recommend her."

When it found her outfit choices, Hannah was built with a wonderful time in the FeelTimes online store. There she discovered an ideal daytime option for her and Will's summer wedding: the gorgeous prom dresses!

"FeelTimes felt just like a perfect choice as their dresses feel so effortless but luxurious at the same time. The style matched the boho-ish, summer style that I'd envisioned. I fell deeply in love with rose motif embroidery around the 'Megan' dress.”

Hannah's magnificent bouquet included olive branches, huge white dahlias, roses, and lisianthus, and it is unstructured beauty looked wonderful combined with her dreamy boho dress and rose embroidered veil.

"Will wanted something relaxed so he opted for any plain navy suit having a white shirt along with a buttonhole (without any ties or waistcoats). As the suits were tailored, each was built with a unique lining with personalized embroidery."

The bridesmaids wore different styles of maxi dresses with lovely pleat details in a wide array of soft blush pink shades, that have been all from FeelTimes.

The couple first met around the school bus, both aged 16, and also have been together since. I will propose to Hannah at the end of the holiday within the beautiful Dordogne.

"One of the first things he explained to me after he proposed was 'and I think we ought to do it next year. After that, we never considered an extended engagement."

Hannah was combined with her Dad, sister, and bridesmaids down towards the ceremony, negotiating the chateau's tricky turret together with her veil! She walked together with her Dad on the aisle, to Here Comes the Sun played live by her cousin Charlie on guitar.

"The song means a great deal to my family since it reminds us of my Grandad, who died a few years ago. Charlie seemed to be wearing my Grandad's waistcoat, that was special."

Surrounded by their family members, Hannah and Will made their vows to one another, inside a ceremony conducted by a celebrant.

Having a Boho Lace & For Love Dress

I have this type of joyously heartfelt celebration to express all today; the marriage of a florist who co-created the spectacular floral arrangements and installations you'll see throughout the day.

I love the 1970s boho feel of Jade's lace dress – those statement tapered sleeves and lacing detail – just wow!

"The dress I thought I would choose looked terrible on me. I returned a couple of weeks later and also the last one I tried on was the main one! I cried, but this time around because of how perfect it had been for me."

"I loved the lace detailing and also the floaty bell sleeves. It provided the confidence I needed just to walk down the aisle with all of the eyes on me."

"Brett and I happen to be a couple for approximately 12 years. No romantic love story for all of us I'm afraid. We met within our local pub out with mutual friends in spring 2018, and spent the following 4 years happening holidays and purchasing our first home."

"We hit a bumpy road whenever we needed the aid of IVF to get pregnant. The news would be a huge blow to us both, so in true style, we booked another holiday for that Christmas and New Year break – fourteen days in Cuba, that was where Brett proposed to me around the beach one evening underneath the sunset around the 30 December 2014. Totally cliché!"

"We cried ugly tears and everything. 2015 was spent forward and backward to hospital appointments, as well as in 2016 we welcomed our miracle son Cooper. We decided 4 years after our engagement we'd book our wedding."

"The week we confirmed we discovered I had fallen pregnant naturally with this second son Buddy. 2019 appeared like the perfect year to get married so our boys could walk on the aisle around."

"We caused Lucy and Megan at, as I was overwhelmed with how I wanted your day to look – doing this many weddings myself! I gave them free rein, and it had been beyond our wildest dreams. I gave them a color palette and florals I would be utilizing, plus they did the remainder."

Surrounded by themselves, Jade and Brett made their vows and solidified their commitment using the exchanging of rings. They both chose simple platinum bands from a family jeweler.

"One of our closest friends who's also the godfather to the boys did a reading. It was by Robert Fulghum."

Brett's smart three-piece deep blue suit was by, worn having a white shirt along with a blush pink tie and pocket square. The couple's sweet flower girl wore quite a tulle dress.

The bridesmaids looked lovely in pink multiway wrap prom dresses, and shoes all from FeelTimes.

Caricaturists kept guests entertained because they relaxed with drinks and canapés post-ceremony, and Jade and Brett took a while together (with their wedding ceremony) for photos with photographer Dan. It's so lovely to determine Dan's candid, relaxed work on our pages.

"Dan is one of the good ones, you realize. His type of photography has always stood out in my experience. Fun, natural shots. One of the easiest guys to obtain along with, filled with life and try to make people laugh."

"He had our photographs edited as well as in my inbox in just a few days, and wow, he didn't disappoint."

"I've reached admit, I found the entire planning for our the first day big, overwhelming mess. Megan and Lucy were amazing at guiding me and keeping me calm. I love the texture, and peach and blush are my favorite mixture of colors."

After dinner, family members gathered around the edge of the dancefloor to look at Jade and Brett place their first married dance together, to A Thousand Years by Christina Perri.

A Celebration of Wedding Day Poetry

One of the very beautiful stuff that happened to me in lockdown was being gifted a poem that was written especially for me.

You can see more about that here. I'm a large poetry lover generally and so loved this editorial concept that people were sent, thanks to Sally R. Wilkes, the talented wordsmith behind, whose words follow.

"For centuries, poetry has been used as a beautiful method of articulating love. As a means of expressing an individual's innermost feelings towards another. So, what could be more romantic than the usual wedding-themed around poetry?"

"Set in the picture-perfect in Derbyshire, an incredible team of wedding dresses suppliers joined together to transform what of writer/poet Sally R. Wilkes of into this stunning modern take of Pride and Prejudice."

"The models, Tina Sarker and Richard Portman, really are a real-life couple who got engaged in February 2020."

"They intend to elope and obtain married abroad only the two of them in 2021 and thus they knew the shoot his or her 'feeding' (fake wedding!)."

"However, there's nothing fake regarding their feelings. Their fascination with each other was clear for everybody to see at the time and is just like clear both in the photos and also the video footage."

"On your day, Richard wore a grey check three-piece lounge suit having a pale blue tie and pocket square from Jon Paul Menswear. The stunning dress from Ryley And Flynn Vintage was handmade from ivory chiffon having a circular skirt, gentle flounces as well as an elegant train."

"Tina's hair was styled in an intimate low updo having a center part and wispy curls. She wore pearl hair accessories and coordinating earrings, all from. Makeup artist, Sophie Downing, made a soft, romantic bridal look, light around the skin having a deeper sultry eye."

"Tied round the bouquet would be a beautiful dusty blue silk ribbon having a two-line quote, which had been lovingly hand-lettered to the surface by The Handmade Sign Company."

"Both the floating fabric backdrop and also the sensational white and gold wooden cake backdrop featured poems compiled by Sally R. Wilkes of Rhymes To Remember, and both were elegantly hand-lettered by The Handmade Sign Company."

"A pale blue color was chosen for that decadent three-tier cake produced by the so it would stick out against the white wooden backdrop. It featured subtle ruffles, delicate sugar roses, and hand-painted gold words, that have been chosen to tie in using the poem around the backdrop."

"Tina and Richard's real-life love story was captured in 2 very moving bits of bespoke poetry that have been handwritten in blue ink on handmade torn edge paper."

"They captured another emotional moment when Tina read for that first time a poem about her late father that was intricately embroidered by Extra Special Touch and stitched within the left-hand panel from the dress so it would be worn right by her heart."

Hello, lovely ones – wishing all of you a wonderful, relaxing Sunday after another crazy week for everybody trying to plan a marriage.

Those individuals arriving in this article because you are intending your wedding – congrats! Retail Manager married Rugby Player James on 8th June 2019, and we are thrilled to determine that the couple hired our recommended suppliers.

"I had always imagined wearing something quite simple and classic however when I tried on which I thought I'd like, it looked almost a little too simple! That's why I think the gown hit the nail around the head – it's both simple in the front and jazzy and unusual behind. I'd never witnessed anything enjoy it before."

"James and I met within our second year at Nottingham University through mutual friends. We got engaged on a holiday to Northern Italy and we had been engaged approximately a year before we got married."

The couple hired the expertise to fill their day with floral decor.

"As I wanted something fairly simple in terms of decoration, we simply had white floral arrangements within the marquee. Although I probably challenged her with a significant few of my ideas (trees wrapped around the marquee poles to mention one) Becky brought those suggestions to life plus they turned out much better than I could have even imagined."

"My Dad, Paul walked me on the aisle, towards the sound of 'Here Comes The Sun' through the Beatles, along with a family friend, Jackie, officiated our marriage ceremony."

"We had met the photographer not too long ago at another wedding dresses and also, since then we now have pretty much been bumping into her at weddings since."

"Having seen her photos there wasn't any question who we desired to shoot the marriage and now we now have the most amazing photos to appear back through and re-live your day."
