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.

With a budget of £5000 WWW readers Rachel and Chris got super crafty and DIY’d much of their wedding day. They tied the knot on Saturday 24th May 2014 at Newstead Abbey in Nottingham.
It was important to them to bring their loved ones together; with a lot of smiles and the sweetest little ones. Rachel arranged the flowers and crafted the colourful decor herself, I especially love the fun naked sponge cake.
Rachel looked beautiful in lace, while Chris donned a polka dot preppy look. Oh so lovely.
Thanks goes to the wonderful Light and Stories Photography for sharing their images today.

Chris and Lorna married on the 2nd May 2014 beside the seaside in gorgeous Dorset, holding their reception at Branksome Dene Hall. They wanted their wedding to be informal and laid back, which also involved their four children.
They kept everything super simple and chic, with a sweet seaside feel to the décor and pretty fresh flowers.
Lorna had one of the loveliest hair styles ever, which was all plaits and flowers, which worked perfectly with her lace Romantica of Devon gown.
Thanks goes to Francesca Secolonovo for providing the stunning imagery today.

We have a bit of an overseas theme today, with a stunning Ireland wedding this morning and this afternoon we are headed to romantic Italy.
WWW readers Kayleigh and David tied the knot on the 10th June 2014 beside the amazing scenery of Lake Garda. They kept their wedding simple focusing on the setting rather than detail. There were pretty maids in coral frocks, vibrant florals, ice cream and a fun carousel ride.
Kayleigh looked beautiful in a flowing sheer back gown, while David went for a quirky braces and bow tie look. Just be sure look out for the sunset shot at the end too.
Thanks so much to Caroline Potter Photography for sharing her lovely images with us this afternoon.

I am not sure I’ve ever featured a more thoughtful couple, this bride and groom went the extra mile and thought of every little detail for their wedding.
WWW readers Philip and Victoria married on the 28th September 2013 at the beautiful Hitchin Lavender, Hertfordshire. They hand crafted their rustic feel wedding to perfection, from the genius dictionary guest book to the stationery and notebook favours. They were also lucky to have some supremely talented friends who helped to create their wedding not to mention a super gorgeous wedding party.
Victoria looked divine in lace and I love her green Converse, while Philip donned a dark navy suit. And all on a budget of £6000, amazing.
Thanks so much to the wonderful Jessica Holt Photography for sharing her images with us.
