Rustic Country Wedding

We’re delighted that this incredibly beautiful wedding is gracing Butterflies & Bells. It has a wonderful sense of creativity and romance as a traditional style wedding without the formal boundaries. All food and drink was sourced locally from the New Forest and the stunning yet informal flowers are from Pippa Stoddart at Tussey Mussey Flowers; we love the milk bottles and jam jars they’re arranged in. Look out for the table tags, the Hen-made cakes, the swing and the horses. Beautiful photography by Tori Hancock; dress by Ellie Lowe and horses from Mouland Belgians.

Wedding Dresses, Stationery & Ideas | Favourites from the Designer Wedding Show

Four suppliers stood out for us at the Designer Wedding Show. Two dress designers, a stationer and a food and drink Tricycle supplier.

EMMA HUNT wedding dresses – Eyecatching on her stand and on the catwalk with some beautiful lace designs. Emma’s bespoke wedding dresses balance elegant, classic styles with modern detailing and clean lines for truly timeless pieces. She is based in Wimbledon.

IDEAS BOX  Espresso Tricycle – A fun way to introduce coffee or cheese to your meal, by wheeling in an old fashioned tricycle to serve up the goods. Or there are Pimms tricycles, Ice cream tricycles and many more….a fun addition to your wedding!

LISA REDMAN wedding dresses – Lisa’s dresses really caught our eye on the catwalk and we rushed to find her stand. A fashion focused and experience designer she is a lovely and extremely talented. Don’t be put off by the fact her focus isn’t just wedding dresses, she works to produce a sophisticated and timeless design no matter what the occasion and her wedding dresses are different and unique to many of those around at the moment. She will help to create your perfect and timeless piece that you will cherish forever. Based in Notting Hill, she is well worth a visit.

LEEMING BROTHERS stationery – It is hard to stand out when you have some of London’s top stationers exhibiting but Hampshire based Leeming Brothers stationery had a luxurious stand exhibiting truly luxurious stationery. Like many classic stationers they offer beautiful hand engraved stationery, they also work with letterpress printing dating back to the mid 1400s. We recommend requesting a sample pack, you will fall for the beautiful colours and textures that they work with and you might just be tempted off the traditional wedding invite as the other options are just so beautiful…
