I hope you had a fab bank holiday weekend. G was working but it was a busy one none the less. A had his birthday party, so I baked up a Star Wars cake of course, I can’t believe he is going to be 7! Ekk. Then there was the food to sort and the organising involved. I think it was a hit though, so that’s a relief. Sunday saw family popping in which was lovely, amongst some tidying and sorting around the house. I do love a good sort out. On Monday we managed to pop to a country show for a couple of hours. The boys enjoyed the motorbike stunts and fun fair, so it was a worthwhile trip.
This week I will be preparing for W’s second birthday and a family gathering. Whilst checking my emails for the gazillionth time to see if any house moving news has been forwarded on. Plus of course gearing up for going back to school next week. The summer has flown!
I am loving the autumnal weddings popping up in my feeds, rich colours and beautiful light. Bring it on.
This gorgeous couple had a colourful wedding extravaganza set in a rustic barn with the loveliest of florals.
WWW readers Adam and Georgie were married on the 2nd April 2016 at their local church followed by a reception at The Great Tythe Barn in the Cotswolds. A vibrant countryside wedding was the focus of their planning where their guests could relax and have fun. They settled on an uber pretty mint green, blush pink and gold colour theme which was used throughout the details and décor. Let’s start with the flowers. Coral tones were used in the blooms with Peonies and Roses taking centre stage and delightful ribbons securing the bouquets. I just adore the DIY ribbon backdrops at the venue and the pastel painted jars filled with flowers.
Georgie looked incredible in her blush pink tulle gown by Allure Bridals, while the gents were suited and booted in Ted Baker outfits. What a stylish pair. Just wait until you see how utterly in love they are, aww.
Rob Tarren, many thanks for providing these really marvellous photographs today.
This afternoon’s images are courtesy of WWW faves We Are The Clarkes, Anna and Simon’s images always give me goosebumps and this set of photographs are no exception.
WWW followers Owen and Carla (now owners of tipi and sailcloth tent rental company Coastal Tents Ltd) were married on a glorious summers day in Dorset. They hired Purbeck Valley Farm to host their tipi and camping wedding extravaganza. But first they tied the knot beside the sea at the The Grand Hotel in Swanage in an outdoor ceremony. It looked utterly idyllic and those portraits on the beach really blew me away.
Carla’s short and sweet gown by Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett looked so perfect teamed with sparkly heels, while Owen was suited and booted in Next attire. With no formal bridal party everyone got to choose their own outfits and all still contributed to the fantastic DIY efforts. I am loving the colourful blooms, bunting table plan and music inspired details. So gorgeous.
This simple, pretty sunflower filled celebration will leave you filled with joy today.
Lucy and Dave were married on Saturday 14th May at Sewerby Hall followed by a reception at Wold Top Brewery in Yorkshire. They loved the quirkiness of the brewery and it influenced the fun favours whilst still being true to themselves. Their main vision was to hold a relaxed and informal celebration with their nearest and dearest. Sunflowers were also top of the list for Lucy and they used the big bright blooms throughout. The navy attire worked so well against the pops of yellow and I just love those ASOS bridesmaid frocks.
Lucy chose to wear a strapless gown and classic veil which looked sensational. Didn’t she make the most beautiful bride? Bunting, beer and love all round.
Thanks so much to Jemma King for sharing these wonderful shots with us.
The wedding plans began with their special place; Croyde Bay, which was the setting for that proposal also. From there these newly-weds plumped for a beachy rustic style wedding and it was really rather marvellous.
Kat and Billy were married on the 2nd April in a church service followed by a marquee reception at Down End Field in Devon. Talking of the marquee it was a pretty spectacular pole tent, which was subsequently decked out in rustic furniture, fresh blooms in jars and brilliant driftwood signage. I love the nods to the seaside setting with the sandy cake table, surfboard seating plan and shell place names all taking centre stage.
Kat wore a stunning lace Lyn Ashworth gown she had customised, accessorised with colourful bouquet. Billy meanwhile opted for a dapper green tweed suit and the bridesmaids looked awesome in blue with their coordinating flower crowns.
