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.

A country wedding with colour

Another beautiful wedding photographed by Marcus Dodridge, at Bignor Park.

Think English country garden with Indian block prints.

We love the turquoise Kew Garden Flower pots with white hydrangeas and the gorgeous bridesmaid dresses.

Wedding Ideas & Inspiration | Summer Wedding on the Beach

Fun, quirky and full of love! At this beach wedding, on the shores of the Salcombe Estuary, guests danced the night away with the sand in their toes. No detail was left unthought of with guests leaving messages on an old fashioned type writer, picking your seat out of a hat and a self set-up photo booth (more on that another time).

Click here to see the full photos and absorb their wonderful touches. Guests left the next day after a day on the beach with a homemade bottle of sloe gin (with hand waxed lids and written labels).

Wedding Ideas & Inspiration | Real Wedding in the Welsh Hills

A beautiful wedding set up in the lush green hills of the Welsh countryside and not being far from the coast there was a nod to the seaside with various little touches. Blue was a colour running through the wedding with the bridesmaids in velvet navy and the bride’s bouquet splashed with beautiful cornflower blue.

Ushers sported unique ‘Whale’ ties from Opumo and guests danced the night away to one of the best wedding bands of the year which we will be featuring shortly….

Enjoy a peruse of Real Wedding In the Welsh Hills.
