A Beautiful Summer Colshaw Hall Wedding

Bride and groom kissing after Colshaw Hall wedding

Lily and Oliver’s Colshaw Hall wedding is simply stunning. They created such an elegant summer wedding, making the most of stunning summer blooms for the bridal bouquets and floral arrangements, and the natural summer light that lit up their beautiful venue.

We love Lily’s dress with its delicate lace back, and wait until you see Oliver and the groomsmen’s cool suits.

If you are looking for inspiration for your evening reception then you will love their wedding party! A photo booth, casino tables and a sparkling dance floor; what more could you want?

We hope you love these pictures by Jess Yarwood Photography as much as we do…

“We met at school in 1995 where we became best friends. I then went to university and travelled around Europe working for Thomas Cook. Oliver went to America to undertake a football scholarship and then went on to travel around Australia.

“However, we remained close friends and would often meet to catch up. Then in 2014 Oliver moved in with me as my house mate following a break up. It was from here that we realised that we were more than just friends, and began dating in June 2014. Oliver proposed in Las Vegas in September 2015.

A Beautiful BoHo Cornwall Elopement

Bride and groom on rocks by sea after BoHo Cornwall elopement

If you don’t fancy a big white wedding with hundreds of guests, and are looking for something small and incredibly intimate, then maybe think about an elopement. We don’t mean rushing of to Gretna Green! How about Cornwall?

This is exactly what Lizzy and Alan did for their wedding. They had an stunning, intimate BoHo Cornwall elopement, with picturesque surroundings. They had no one else to worry about but themselves on their special day. After the ceremony Lizzy, Alan and their son sat on the cliff-side overlooking the sea and enjoyed a decadent picnic in the sunshine. Just perfect!

These amazing pictures by Thomas Frost Photography show just how lovely an elopement can be…

A Special Day Together

“Our BoHo Cornwall elopement was an outdoor ceremony with only witnesses. As it was such an intimate day we didn’t have to worry about things such as a theme or styling. It was really just a bouquet, buttonhole and flowers in my hair.

“My dress was the complete opposite to what I ever imagined, but I would never change it. It was comfortable, classic, but with a boho feel. It was also easy to move in which I knew would be important with a 10 month old to look after and photos on the beach.

“I stuck to tradition by having something old, something new and something borrowed. My friends have passed down the same garter, with each friend adding something to it when they marry.

“It was wonderful to feel at ease, knowing it was the first day of the rest of our lives together. It was also amazing to spend such a special day together, not worrying about anyone but ourselves. The whole day was perfect, and we have so many fabulous pictures to help us remember it. We will never get bored of them.”

Katie Leclerc and Brian Habecost at their Colony 29 wedding

A Bright and Colourful Colony 29 Wedding

Katie Leclerc and Brian Habecost at their Colony 29 wedding

We are absolutely delighted to be sharing with you the fabulous pictures of American actress Katie Leclerc’s wedding to film director Brian Habecost. We love everything about their Colony 29 wedding. The couple’s love of bikes, the dogs in tuxedos, beautiful outdoor ceremony, cool chill out lounge, popsicles, tablescapes to make you swoon, and the cactuses. Oh, and the colours; peach, blush, bronze and mustard – the bridesmaid rock these colours!

We hope you get a tonne of inspiration from this fabulous wedding, and the wonderful pictures by Gideon Photography…

When actress Katie Leclerc and casting director Brian Habecost met on a movie set they hit it off right away. But when shooting finished she went back to Texas and he stayed in Los Angeles.

A Proposal Straight Out of a Movie

They spoke every day until Katie moved back to California, when their romance blossomed. Then, about three-and-a-half years later, Brian proposed in a way that was straight out of a movie.

Katie woke up surrounded by streamers, flowers, lots of balloons and photos from their relationship.

“Brian had decorated the entire house,” Katie recalls. “And since we’d just moved in, there was no furniture, just these reminders of us. Flowers lined the hallway to the living room, where there was a huge banner that read, ‘Katie will you marry me?’ When I saw it, he got down on one knee.”

Fun and Festive Colony 29 Wedding

The wedding was just as fun and festive as the proposal. The couple and their 140 guests ventured down to Palm Springs, California, for a wedding at Colony 29.

Their love of having a blast, being outdoors, riding their bikes, and playing games like Cards Against Humanity were all included in the celebration.

A Timeless, Pretty Packington Moor Wedding

Ellen and Ben’s Packington Moor wedding is going to blow you away. Firstly, just look at Ellen’s Maggie Sottero dress – wow! Then there are the shoes, oh the Jenny Packham shoes! We also adore the soft pink embellished bridesmaid dresses that really complement Ellen’s stunning wedding dress. Ben and the groomsmen are rather dapper in their Moss Bros suits with traditional tails too.

Ok, well if you think the bridal attire is amazing, how about the styling details… this wedding is so pretty. From the fabulous flowers and pretty floral ceremony arch, to the elegant wedding cake and seating plan.

Everything about this wedding oozes romance and elegance. You are going to love these beautiful pictures by Helen Howard Photography.

A Romantic Proposal

“When Ben proposed I was in the Bahamas completing medical school training. I was extremely homesick and missing Ben desperately. He kindly booked me in to a lovely hotel for a weekend to allow me to escape the dreadful accommodation I had been staying in.

“Before dawn on the first night I was at the hotel I was woken by a room boy who was very insistently banging on my door to deliver a card. The card told me to go down to the jetty. So after pulling on a dress I ran down to the jetty to find Ben. He had secretly flown over to the Bahamas and was waiting as the sun came up over the sea to propose. He stayed for only 36hours before flying back to the UK.”

Timeless With No Regrets

“We didn’t plan on having a wedding theme, but we knew we wanted our wedding to be timeless. We didn’t want to regret anything on the pictures when we showed our grandchildren in fifty years’ time.

“As time went on, and my dress had been chosen, a subtle 1920’s theme came through with the typeface on the table plan and place settings. In terms of colours we stuck to classic ivory and blush pink, which again felt timeless and pretty.”

Heaven Scent

“For my birthday Ben took me to Floris, a London perfumery where we spent a wonderful afternoon creating a bespoke fragrance which I wore for the first time on the wedding day. It is so lovely to wear it now as it brings back all of the wonderful memories of our day.”

A Music Themed Wedding at Buckland House

Vinyl record signed by wedding guests

Anyone with a passion for music will love the little details of this music inspired wedding at Buckland House. As Ceren and Chris met through their love of music, their wedding of course had to feature the odd music note and vinyl record!

Following a ceremony in the church alongside the venue they enjoyed a marquee reception before partying the night away with their guests in the manor house, which they’d hired for the whole weekend for their friends and family to stay in.

We are delighted to share these fabulous pictures by Lee Maxwell Photography…

“As we met through music we decided this would be a good theme to have at our wedding. Our approach to the day was very relaxed, and to keep costs down we made as much as we could ourselves.

“All the companies we went through, provided us with such an amazing service and having our friends and family celebrate our wedding with us absolutely made our day.”
