I think I must spend about 99.9% of my life wishing it was summer. Sure, all the other seasons are great in their own way, but summer is definitely where it’s at for me. Especially when there’s a wedding involved.
For some reason, this summer was probably the busiest and, dare I say it, prettiest I have seen in the three years I’ve been styling weddings. And Victoria and Paddy’s day was no exception to this unwritten 2014 rule – not only was it set in one of the most beautiful locations EVER, but everything about it was so unbelievably on point – the flowers, the food, the dress, the marquee. Even the weather was on side.
The couple’s brief for the day was a relaxed garden party with a rustic twist – think picnic blankets, apple crates and vintage crockery mixed with gorgeous, hand tied bunches of wild looking flowers, favours wrapped in kraft paper and Victoria sponges all round. The colour palate of mint green, lilac, purple and blue complemented the whole theme perfectly. And don’t even get me started on the moss table runners or stunning paisley-esque print on the roof of the marquee; I died several times over looking at it all that day.
Big thank you to Jenny from Bellaboo and Beau for having me tag along again and get my hands dirty (quite literally – we were
sweating perspiring like there was no tomorrow) with this one, it was a total beauty…
Just how stunning is this wedding? As usual, my attempts at capturing it don’t do it nearly enough justice, so if you want all the extra details about the dress, bridesmaids, food, speeches and even how the couple’s dog, Reggie, got in on the act then head on over to Boho Weddings, who were kind enough to feature it in all its beautiful, rustic glory this week. (And if all of that wasn’t enough to lure you in then there’s also a totally epic pair of shoes – a pair that were, in fact, very nearly my own wedding shoes of choice!)
A big thank you must also go to these super suppliers (and some of our most favourite wedding chums!):
