This quintessentially English wedding is sure to give you a warm fuzzy feeling today and oodles of gorgeous summer wedding ideas to boot.
WWW readers Marianne and David decided to get hitched on the 20th June 2015 in the pretty Gloucestershire countryside. They steered away from a vintage chintz feel to their marquee wedding opting for trestle tables and festoon lights which gave a rustic chic feel. The marquee looked spectacular draped in foliage with crates filled to the brim with flowers and colour pop gingham table cloths. They wanted a relaxed atmosphere and the scrumptious food was served on the tables along side Victoria sponge cakes and ice cream for dessert. Yum.
Marianne looked utterly stunning in her beautiful Katya Katya Shehurina gown with vintage gold peep toes, while the gents donned tweed kilts. It sounds like a fun time was had by all.
Being an Etsy affiliate I had an email pop up asking me to take part in their Christmas gift guide challenge. Not one to turn down an excuse to do a spot of window shopping I thought I’d join in today.
Fingers crossed my picks for newly-weds will help you a little with your festive shop. If you know a super loved up couple you fancy treating this year then there are some wonderfully quirky, unique and personalised presents over on Etsy. In fact I may have to add a few of these to my own Christmas wish list hehe.
How sweet is this custom portrait. I’d love this adorning our home.
Marlee and Bryan are childhood sweethearts, they began dating in school and as they say the rest is history.
Their wedding celebration was so very special. Sweet pink and grey hues were used throughout. Think pastel maids and gypsophila bouquets with the gents in pale grey suits. Their outdoor ceremony which included their daughter looked just perfect. I especially love Marlee’s colour pop yellow Toms, so fun.
Emily has been super productive this month. Not only have the groomsmen jackets been purchased but the dress fitting is imminent and the table plan is coming together. Oh and the engagement present they received is too cute. Cake topper? Hehe. Thank you Emily for keeping us in the loop xo Lou
Pete and I in Mr. Fogg’s Tavern. New favourite place.
Hello lovely readers! I hope this November finds you well. November. Blimey. Not only does that mean IT’S NEARLY CHRISTMAS but it means that it’s less than seven months until I become Mrs Randall. I couldn’t be more excited. I’m a lot more relaxed about wedding planning than I thought I’d be. I’m a big stress-er usually, but I can’t shake the feeling that it’s all going to be OK and I really don’t need to sweat the small stuff. I may regret saying that in a month or two.
It’s my wedding dress fitting next week. Poppy (Maid of Honour), my mum and my little sister (mini Maid of Honour) are all going to be there. It’s recommended that the bride has her wedding underwear ready to see how it fits underneath said dress, but I have yet to buy that – I’ve been trawling the M&S and House of Fraser websites like a crazy person. Must have extreme tummy control. Must somehow get rid of cellulite. But most importantly I must be able to go to the loo in it. I mean, not in it. It’s not like I’m after a built-in catheter – but if I can pop out for a wee without having to spend half an hour adjusting several buttons, that would be most pleasant.
A lovely homemade engagement present we received. It’s going in the wedding!
Recently we’ve been sorting out the jackets for the boys. T.M. Lewin have been so very helpful; since we placed the order earlier this year they’ve reduced the prices. My mum – in her excellent way that I will never be able to imitate – managed to charm them enough so they knocked the prices down to the sale amount. Also – and I forgot to mention this – my wedding dress has been reduced by a significant amount. The one dress they have left is in my size and the lovely lady at Harmony Brides has put it aside for me. So purely by chance, it’s looking more and more likely that our budget of £10,000 is going to cover everything.
Oh Phoebe and Edward, your gorgeous Summer wedding is all kinds of beautiful. What a pleasure it is to be sharing your story today.
On the 20th June 2015 Phoebe and Edward said their vows to one another at Rockley Manor in Wiltshire followed by a splendid country barn reception. There were fete games and a match of cricket to entertain alongside live musicians.
They incorporated the things they love most, with crafty bicycle stationery, home baked cakes and reams of DIY bunting using meaningful fabric. Phoebe donned an elegant gown from David’s Bridal and she looked so very gorgeous. While the boys wore blue suits with liberty print bow ties sewn by Phoebe, teamed with vibrant orange socks. Happy days.
Irene Yap, I cannot thank you enough for sharing your exquisite imagery today.
