If ever there was a wedding to which you copied every last perfect detail this one might be it.  Probably having something to do with the fact that the couple is flat out stunning, the English countryside backdrop is straight out of a movie and the details are simultaneously romantic and utterly effortless. Although I also suspect that photographer Polly Alexandre has a bit to do with why I can’t seem to tear myself away as well with images so lovely, I am considering printing them out and hanging them on my walls. This my friends, is why I’m so grateful that 2013 is here and that we’re ringing in the New Year with weddings that completely set the bar for all things lovely. Click here to see even more.

From Polly AlexandreThis was a beautiful English wedding held at Babington House, Somerset, England, by a couple in the film industry. The groom is also in a super talented band with a big future ahead of them….and some members of his band played at their wedding. The couple wanted a relaxed weekend of good food, good friends and fun partying. She wore a Valentino dress and flat gold sparkly shoes. They married in the chapel on the grounds of Babington House, with a cocktail reception following. Big family style platters of food at dinner encouraged the convivial feeling and the party went on long into the night….until 7am to be precise!
