WWW readers Amanda and Martin tied the knot on the Sunday 6th April 2014 holding their wedding at Kent Life in the prettiest village hall. They wanted to keep their wedding small in numbers but with a pretty shabby chic feel.
Cue vintage china, tea cups for the Champagne and bunting galore. I love the decadent rose flower arrangements, the bridesmaids in lace and the VW camper.
Amanda was beautiful in her Essence of Australia gown with statement necklace and custom painted shoes, while Martin wore a sharp three piece suit.
Thanks so very much to the wonderful Assassynation for sharing her images this afternoon.

This week we are in California for the wedding of Katy and Kris who are artists. They had a vision of a day which celebrated new life and nature, hence the gorgeous setting and fern and succulent blooms. I love this couple’s style, from Katy’s amazing eye wear to Kris’ braces and hat combo. There are so many great ideas to steal here lovelies.
Thanks so very much to Lovato Images for sharing their amazing images today.
“Katy and Kris are artists and every ounce of their creativity was poured into their wedding day. They both are visionaries who see beyond and their unique perspective was told in every detail. The theme of their wedding was post-apocalyptic, focusing on the regrowth of nature and new life. The story Katy and Kris want to tell is that their love is not defined or confined by anything man made. They chose the Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim Hills to exchange their vows and they dressed the rustic landscape with deep purples and bright green ferns. As their guests moved to their reception at the McCoy Equestrian Center, they were encouraged to bring sentimental items to put in a time capsule that Katy and Kris will open on their 10th anniversary. They were provided with ‘survival rations’ or snacks. They were seated at tables with centerpieces made by Katy and Kris themselves that were each an organic mix of life and death. Completely DIY, Katy and Kris did an amazing job of sharing their story.”

I do love a colourful vibrant wedding which shows off a couple’s personalities to a T.
Laura and Lee chose to marry on Saturday August 16th, holding their ceremony at Brighton Unitarian Church followed by a farm reception in West Sussex. With a love of music, a festival vibe with live music was totally fitting and added to the relaxed atmosphere.
One of my favourite parts of this wedding has to be the seasonal organic blooms in red and yellow hues arranged and grown by the Sussex Flower Farm. Plus of course the lovely DIY details and pretty twinkling festoon lighting.
Laura was so elegant in her lace dress, while the bridesmaids wore Oh My Honey polka dot frocks. So much loveliness.
Thanks so much to the supremely talented Candid and Frank Photography for the imagery today.

After classic and beautiful inspiration this morning, this afternoon we are getting all eccentric and quirky.
Gemma and Lewis tied the knot on the 11th July 2014 at The Grange Hotel in Cumbria. They had a budget of £1500 to create their kitsch and retro candy coloured wedding.
They DIY’d much of their décor, with fab origami flower bouquets, a map seating plan and pretty centrepieces. I love Gemma’s 1950s inspired bridal look, with tea length dress, retro hair style and sunnies. Amazing.
Thanks so very much to the fabulous Emma Boileau for sharing her photographs today.

It’s international Saturday and I know for one I am delighted to be taking you to beautiful California today.
Nora and Jordan had a hippy bohemian feel to their clifftop wedding. Amazing attire, gorgeous blooms and a gypsy band. Sea views, sunshine and a lot of love. Gorgeous.
Thanks so much to YourDreamPhoto for sharing their dreamy images today, here is what they had to say about the day;
“Nora and Jordan chose a truly fabulous location for their bohemian ceremony! They decided to do the ceremony on a big cliff overlooking the shoreline and the endless Pacific ocean.
They drove to the destination in their old blue Volvo which contributed well to the whole hippie spirit of the wedding. The guys also invited a huge gypsy band and let them play and let everybody dance to those hypnotizing tunes.
The wooden wedding arch was decorated with beautiful flowers and Nora wore a gorgeous DIY flower crown which went perfectly together.”
