If you know anyone getting married in the next twelve months, share this blog with them to offer some inspiration (and to prove you’re taking an interest!). This summer I was lucky enough to attend three weddings and I felt really privileged watching three lovely girls getting married and witnessing the creativity they put into their day. Us girls are really good at organising weddings and though, all three dresses and days were very different, they each complemented their personalities perfectly. This blog will be in three parts, so read on…

Caravan Of Love

Belinda was the first to get married. Belinda & Ben’s wedding took place at Brick House Farm in Kent. Belinda’s day was a little bit ‘music festival’ with guest camping and gypsy caravans and a little bit ‘village fete’

Everything at this wedding seemed to be handmade or homemade, all lovingly created by a member of their family, but actually a wedding planner couldn’t have done a better job, every detail was creative, but simply done, from the blackboard and chalked table plan to the plain carafes with garden flowers.

They were married in a beautiful rustic barn with twinkley fairy lights, we all sat on hay bales, Ivy (their two year old) even wore her stripy wellies with her bridesmaid dress. Lunch was in an old style canvas marquee, with wooden trestle tables, each name card was tied to a different vintage toy plastic animal. There was a wedding ‘Bake Off’ with a table of delicious homemade cakes and continuing with the fete theme, there was a coconut shy outside. This all took place in front of a beautiful lake with its own lake house and rowing boat, which provided the backdrop for some amazing photos of the bride and groom. Later that evening, there was dancing, then hot dogs around the campfire.

I sourced Belinda’s dress for her and spookily, it was called ‘The Belle’ from Belle & Bunty and stunning it was too. A 1930’s inspired dress, glam, in flowing satin, with godet inserts and a corsage of roses placed under the bust. Belinda did her own hair and make-up with a little help from her sisters.
