Anyone that knows me knows one thing: I heart all things British. So a drop-dead gorgeous English countryside wedding at the Boconnoc House And Estate? Right up my alley. Especially one as beautiful as this elegant day, with its colorful blooms, stylish attire (hello stunning Jenny Packham gown) and breathtaking gallery of images captured by Sarah Falugo. See them all right here.
From Sarah Falugo… Boconnoc House and Estate is a quintessentially English wedding venue. The house dates back to 1250 AD and the grounds, complete with deer park and its own church is a hidden gem in the Cornish countryside. Emma and Terence were married in the church on the grounds and then stayed on site with friends and family to have a garden party and slap up meal in the height of the English summer.
Emma wore a stylish Jenny Packham wedding dress. The decorations were a mixture of colored glass bottles and beautiful English roses.

Last year, Pantone named Grayed Jade one of the leaders in fashion trends and I for one am not over it and this wedding inspiration from Michelle Pierre-Carr is exactly why. Captured by Eddie Judd, it’s everything sweet, elegant, and beautiful – and not to mention that spread from Cakes by Krishanthi. Or the Freya Rose shoes. Or the gaggle of cutie pie kiddos. Really, it’s all amazing, and it’s all right here!
From the designer… Using Pantone’s 2013 colour Grayed Jade (a subtle, hushed green with a gray undertone) we set about creating our ‘Sophisticated Garden’ photo shoot.
Gone are the rustic elements of a garden setting and in comes sophistication, opulence and romance. With crystal candle chandeliers, gold silverware, monograms and natural opulent flowers of Peonies and David Austin roses we combine romance and elegance with the natural outdoors.
And with Succulents as our main themed flower for the reception and bridal party we pay homage to a growing plant trend and the setting we are in whilst adding texture and interest to our floral arrangement.
With children also as our focus on this shoot we take a look at what the bridal party get up to by telling the story of their adventure from coming down the aisle, to them discovering the dessert table with all the treats of Grayed Jade (mint green) to the fun and games they have near the lake and on the long grass, adding the fun element to the sophistication.

From Jodie Chapman… Sonali and Richard’s wedding took place at the coolest venue in London. MC Motors/Castle Gibson is a warehouse that is usually rented out for television/film productions, fashion shoots, and the occasional wedding. With the front of the building having the old-fashioned cinema style board, the wedding took on a little bit of a film theme, with guests collecting cinema tickets to tell them where they were seated, and images of Brando, Clark Gable and Grace Kelly adorning the venue.
Sonali got ready at their mews home in East London before heading to the church where she married her love. They then went on to MC Motors, where guests enjoyed drinks to the sound of the Basin St Brawlers jazz band and took pictures in the photo booth. After a vegetarian Gujarati feast, they partied the night away.
