WWW readers Donna and Simon eloped to the Isle of Skye in April to get married in a personal humanist ceremony.
“I loved the WWW blog and was slightly addicted whilst planning our day. It was great to pick up ideas from other slightly different/eclectic weddings featured! It was also how I found our fabulous photographers, as they had previously done an Isle of Skye elopement which was featured.” Donna told me.
It was important to them to get married somewhere remote and mountainous that reflected their love of hiking together. They hired a pretty cottage, booked fantastic photographers and found a perfect restaurant for their wedding meal. Donna chose a striking vibrant orange wedding dress teamed with a pretty wildflower bouquet. Simon wanted something a little quirky and went for a tweed jacket and waistcoat with some tan chinos. They looked beautiful.
Thanks so much to the brilliant Wilson McSheffrey Photography for sharing their photographs with us today.

With oodles of pretty peach blooms, a retro bicycle, super stylish attire, an incredible cake and lovely stationery. There are sooo many lovely ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
Thanks so much to Katie Hamilton Photography for sharing her images with us today. I will leave you with Rebecca to tell all about the shoot;
“With summer finally on our doorstep we put together this dreamy bridal shoot that oozes colour, charm, and vintage loveliness!
The natural timber pergola at Cripps Barn has a beautiful rustic appeal and provided the perfect backdrop for our flower filled shoot. Katie from Katie Hamilton Photography did an excellent job coordinating the day and capturing the tiny details exquisitely. Her photography is dreamy and ethereal and fit this styled shoot perfectly.
Rebecca from The Bespoke Florist provided the floral for the shoot. She is a huge fan of floral wreaths and finds opportunities wherever she can to incorporate them into her work. We hung a large wreath over the table setting made from a hula-hoop covered in moss and ferns. The wreath was studded with Juliet roses, astilbe, hypericum, clematis and hydrangea. Small silver votives filled with single blooms were dotted amongst flower filled silver rose bowls. The overall look is classic, natural and textured.
The retro bicycle and bunting were significant features in our shoot and we were keen to incorporate these elements in the stationery. Our favourite design has to be the place name cards which are styled on vintage baggage tags finished with wooden buttons and natural twine. The stunning three tier cake and cupcakes feature delicate sugar hydrangea and roses in pastel blue and peach. We particularly love the ribbon detail which adds a sense of softness and movement.
When it came to vintage fashion, it didn’t take us long to pick out the beautiful ‘Daphne’ dress by Lyn Ashworth. We adore its soft tea length cut and over-sized bow detail.”

Steven and Helen wanted a day full of their family and friends with a Ceilidh to entertain them at the reception. So they chose to marry at the town hall followed by a reception at the industrial backdrop of Kelham Island Museum, Sheffield. They kept to a £6000 budget by taking on much of the planning themselves, with family helping to arrange the flowers and bake the cakes.
They had an ale theme at their reception with bottles for the flowers and the tables named after different beers. I so love Helen’s tea length dress she found in Coast, which she teamed with the sweetest homemade accessories. While Steven donned traditional tails with Lego cuff links. Amazing.

A couple of weeks ago i rounded up some table name ideas, which went down a storm. So today i am looking at the styling of your table plan.
If you are opting for an organised table plan, you can go all out and get totally creative. Enlisting a fabulous stationer to design a bold graphic design, or DIYing your own. Think about the theme or ideas behind your wedding day or table names. Use colours or items you love, or why not go for an escort card table.
All of the below table plans are from real weddings, by real couples featured on WWW, just click on the links below the image to see their whole wedding feature.
Who doesn’t love a pretty table plan? Go floral, use bunting, fabric or tissue paper to create the prettiest display.

WWW readers Nikki and Russell married back in March in a Church ceremony followed by a reception at the Chequers Inn, Lincolnshire.
Nikki and Russell are one super stylish pair, with Nikki wearing a lace Essence of Australia dress with her side swept hair and Jenny Packham hair accessory. While Russell chose a slim fit Dolce and Gabbana black suit. They looked amazing.
They kept details to a minimum, wanting an English country wedding with a twist. With a cake of cheese, a pretty Lily of the Valley bouquet and a roaring fire.
Thanks so much to the brilliant John Hope for sharing his photographs with us today.
