Weddings that make my heart flutter

I still love reading wedding blogs and there are some weddings that get featured that make me gasp for breath at the sheer beauty of them. It also makes me want to get married to my husband all over again although I don’t think (well I know) that he wouldn’t be up for that and neither would our bank balances, plus it would be a bit strange. So, with me not able to re-live the experience myself, I just have to do it through other people so it’s lucky that I’ve just trained to become a wedding planner and stylist with the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners and that I have a little project that I’m planning in November with the art deco hotel, The Midland in Morecambe (near my home town of Lancaster) plus it’s pretty awesome that there are so many amazing weddings for me to gawp at through the medium of the internet and my favourite blogs. I’ve found my favourite weddings, dresses and D.I.Y projects of the last week and brought them to you neatly on this little page!

Firstly, this wedding really did make my heart flutter…

The bride, Kate wears Jenny Packham’s ‘Eden’ which was my number one dress until I went for Claire Pettibone’s Kristene. I still think of it though and seeing it on this gorgeous bride makes me want to buy it and wear it everyday like a 1920’s Miss. Haversham although I think it would pose a problem with work (but that’s the only reason I wouldn’t wear it all the time okay?). I’m incredibly taken with the stationery, it’s so cute, elegant and quirky all at the same time and was made by the bride, clearly a talented lady. The venue Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire is INCREDIBLE. I’ve never heard of it before but it’s so beautiful and to top it all off has its own peacocks, If I was getting married I’d definitely check it out. Plus, not forgetting the dapper groom, the navy blue vintage vehicle, the gorgeous bridesmaids dresses and the florals this is possibly (in two whole years of my wedding obsession) one of my favourite weddings I’ve seen in the blog world. It’s perfect! Congratulations to Kate and Jonathan and Lisa & Scott of Lisa Dawn Photography for shooting this dream of a day! Find the full feature over on Ruffled blog.

The next wedding to capture my imagination is over on Love My Dress and was shot beautifully by Rebecca Wedding Photography. I’m mad about the bride, Lauren’s whole look, the lace dress and long length veil make her look so radiant. The florals are totally my style, soft pinks with bright blues with a wild flower look about them which I think suits the relaxed feel of this wedding. The groom is very handsome in his blue suit and the bridesmaids electric blue dresses are just so pretty. I also really like the fact that this wedding was in London, but it looks like it could have been in a pretty english village in the countryside.

Trawling the internet the other day, I found this cute little Australian blog, ‘I do it yourself’ with lots of wedding inspiration, crafting tutorials and mood boards. I found this sixties wedding collage and just had to blog it! I love the bridal outfit from 1965.

My favourite D.I.Y tutorial blog post of the week comes from Style Me Pretty. I’m a bit obsessed with chevron stripes at the moment and I really want to incorporate them into my home. They have also been a bit of a hit in the wedding world recently, they’re quite contemporary, but I think they have a vintage parisian feel to them, especially when in monochrome. So, when I came across this cute D.I.Y chevron candle votive, I knew I had to have a go! It looks pretty simple, so when I have a spare moment I’ll be getting my crafting head on! They’d look beautiful as a table-centre or on a feature table at a wedding as well as on my mantlepiece! If you fancy having a go, head over to Style Me Pretty for the full feature, where you’ll probably spend all evening looking at all the lovely weddings they feature!
