Romantic Spring English Country Club Wedding

Is it just me or is the English countryside an absolute hidden gem!? I think Anushe Low would agree, for as I gazed upon her photos of this spring celebration, I was transported away to another world, filled with blush roses and beautiful light. These lovebirds said their vows surrounded by this beauty and this gorgeous gallery is my new sparkling source for a little pretty pick-me-up.

From Anushe Low… Siobhan and Tom celebrated their wedding day in the beautiful English countryside at the luxury hotel and spa, The Grove. 385 Guests enjoyed the warm May sunshine in the manicured gardens and pools of this country club venue with stunning views of the rolling green hills of Hertfordshire beyond.

Siobhan looked absolutely stunning in a version of the Bluebell wedding dress by Temperley London with a chic layered skirt and an exquisite lace bodice. She wore nude suede Mermaid sandals by Sergio Rossi embellished with crystals. Siobhan’s six bridesmaids looked angelic all in white Temperley London halterneck, empire-line dresses. The groom and groomsmen all wore black tie made by Harris and Howard’s bespoke tailoring.

Beautiful, soft romantic pinks and creams dominated the floral design by Wild at Heart with dramatic roses and hydrangea displays in over-sized silver vases and large pink and cream peonies and roses in the bridal bouquets. The wedding design was given a contemporary edge with the clear perspex invitation ‘cards’, clear glass plates, perspex candle stands and perspex chairs.

The soft pink florals continued in the cake design by Crowthers Cake Studio with a 6-tier cake adorned with sugar roses in an asymmetrical style.

The ceremony took place in an open-sided white marquee on the grounds of The Grove. The bride walked down the aisle to a string quartet. Guest enjoyed delicious canapés and flowing champagne outdoors following which they found their heart-shaped pink escort cards hanging from white ribbons on a row of small trees lining the reception room. The wedding meal was lit by an abundance of romantic white candles whilst guests enjoyed a three-course meal with coffee and petit fours.

The bride and groom opened the dancefloor to Aretha Franklin’s ‘You Send Me’ and the party really got going with an energetic Irish band who kept the dancefloor full all night!

This wedding is like the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun”: every detail has me ready to move to a little town tucked away in Tuscany. But, the next best thing to la dolce vita are these photos from Lisa Poggi of all the pretty planned by Super Tuscan Wedding Planners—from the couple’s daughters who served as bridesmaids to the handmade wedding rings and vintage Fiat getaway car.

From Super Tuscan Wedding PlannersThis romantic couple traveled to Italy with their entire family for their blessing. This is Ingrid and Jeroen’s special wedding in Tuscany! Ingrid and Jeroen decided that pure nature would be the key player for their big day! The wedding ceremony was held in a wheat field set within the Tuscan countryside with olive groves in the background. Bales of straw decorated with pretty white fabric and cushions were used for seating instead of the classical benches or chairs…can you imagine anything more country? Simplicity was the keyword to their union but the details were what made this country wedding in Tuscany special!

The morning started with the ladies getting ready in a venue near the beautiful Tuscan town of Cortona. The bride and the little bridesmaids decorated their heads with braids, flowers and colorful ribbons and a red Fiat 500 car took them to the ceremony location. The bride’s white gown and the bridesmaids’ white dresses were the perfect contrast with the rural Tuscan landscape and the symbolic wedding ceremony began with the best premises! And it seemed that not only Ingrid and Jeroen were going to get married but that their three daughters would join in as they sat with their parents in front of the celebrant! As unusual as the bride’s orange shoes and the handmade wedding rings were, the ceremony was touching as well as amusing! And all those present that day would surely agree!

This couple requested an eco & country wedding and that’s exactly what they got! The ring cushion was pure country style: a bunch of straw nicely tied up with string, with two white roses as decoration. The dominating color was white with pink details here and there, in places such as the bouquets hanging from the trees, all the details at the wedding reception table and the wedding cake that was tastefully decorated with edible rose colored flowers! Well, even the champagne was rose & pink!

The great Tuscan sun shining bright in the sky and the joy of this happy day made this country wedding in Tuscany perfect in its simplicity! The couple then decided to have a religious blessing, this was very important for them and the three little bridesmaids. And now this story ends..well, at least their wedding day does, ‘cause this couple started their new life together by taking a journey through the Tuscan countryside and its most beautiful cities like Cortona, on board a vintage & country red Fiat 500 car!

Rustic Newton Hall Wedding in Coastal Northumberland

From the beautiful Bride… We met during Christmas 2012 after two mutual friends set us up on a blind date!! Apparently, we would ‘get on really well… turns out they were right!

Ten months later, on a trip to beautiful Lake Garda in Italy, Dave proposed at the feet of the Madonna statue, on a hill overlooking the town of Malcesine, at sunset. We were the only two there and I was completely swept off my feet!!! And so the planning began….

We knew we wanted a relaxed wedding with lots of natural touches. I had seen an image of some flower centerpieces that used natural logs as vases – it was the first picture I saved and the theme took a natural course from there.

Having owned a wedding dress shop for over 5 years (I’ve since sold on the business), choosing my dress was probably the easiest bit – believe it or not! Over the years I had found out what shapes suited me and what didn’t, so could narrow styles down quite quickly. I wanted something with a vintage feel but that would still flatter my 5’2″ frame. My full-lace, Charlie Brear dress ticked every box! I also bought two separate tops to wear with it that would give me three slightly different looks for throughout the day! I had always wanted to wear a veil so I knew that was also a must but I kept the veil quite simple so that it didn’t over power the dress. My headpiece was a Richard Designs side tiara that added some vintage sparkle to the over all look.

We hadn’t been looking for too long until we stumbled upon Newton Hall, on the beautiful coastline of Northumberland. The North East being Dave’s home and both of my parents birthplace – it seemed the most natural choice. It had the rustic charm we were looking for, coupled with quirky, fantastical decoration – we booked it over the phone before we had even been for a visit!!

Both being Beatles fans, we had a piano version of ‘Let It Be’ for me and my brothers to walk down the aisle too. We walked out to ‘All You Need Is Love’ and Dave gave each of the groomsmen a guitar brooch to wear in tribute to his love of all things music!! We stuck with tradition for the vows but Dave’s usher read a poem called ‘The Lovely Other Dinosaur’ by Edward Monkton that seemed to sum us both up perfectly!! The poem also complemented the handmade dinosaur planters used along with the centerpieces, that I spent far too much time on!!!

As tribute to my Dad, my mum gave me a vintage brooch with a picture of him inside to attach to my bouquet, so I still felt like he was there in spirit.

We struggled to find the groomsmen ties to match the bridesmaid dresses so my amazing mum took it upon herself to hand crochet individual ties for them all! They loved them and have all worn them since! She also handmade button bouquets for all my flower girls, that they could also keep as mementos of the day.

All of the logs for the table centers were provided by close family friends and we stenciled the plinths for them to sit on ourselves.

It would be very hard to pin down just one thing we were pleased about- the whole day was a dream from start to finish!! Seeing all the individual elements come together is something that you can’t quite believe will work until you see it!! From seeing the room set up with all the flowers for the first time to watching all our close family and friends smiling and dancing to our amazing live band – to us, it was perfect!

To anybody still planning their big day – try to enjoy it! Try to make it personal to you and don’t just follow the crowd and do what you think people want you to do. If you want to add Star Wars figures into your centerpieces instead of flowers – do it!! (I wish I had!) It will show off your personalities and put a smile on other peoples faces!

For our photographer we chose SJ, the reasons will be hard to sum up in a few words!! She was amazing!! We wanted photographs that would capture the spirit of the day, were very natural and above all, weren’t ‘set-up’. We fell in love with the natural light images she produces. She captures moments in the day that you may not have even noticed – a happy tear, a loving glance, a far-away thought. Add to that the fact that she is the happiest, smiliest person ever put on this planet and you have the best photographer!! Her photos are as genuine and full of joy as she is and we couldn’t have asked for more – the photos speak for themselves.

Romantic Family-Oriented Paris Elopement

Big weddings aren’t for everyone—thank goodness, because if they were, we wouldn’t have this beautiful couple’s romantic Parisian elopement. And despite this small size, this wedding has everything it needs: love, family (the couple’s daughter and flowergirl insisted on flowers in her favorite shade of pink) and stunning photos from Le Secret d’Audrey. See them all here.

From The Bride…Late one night, somewhere between trying to minimize our ever growing guest list, seating arrangements and choosing the perfect colour scheme, I had a light bulb moment! Why don’t we elope? He loved the idea, I loved the idea and both of our families were extremely supportive and knew that this would be perfect for us. Together with our 2 beautiful children, we wanted to make this special occasion an intimate and heartfelt one, dedicating our lives to one another without any added pressures. Walking down the aisle with the 2 most important human beings in our lives, I cannot begin to explain how special this moment was.

I wouldn’t quite say that I am a perfectionist, but I certainly do dedicate a lot of energy into the finer details. I wanted our wedding to be timeless and elegant with a hint of personality on the side. I had a lot of fun collecting fresh flowers from a local flower shop and styling the mantle in our apartment with my wedding details. My daughter loves the colour pink and her only request was that we had pink flowers, so I couldn’t resist a few pink peonies!

Why Paris? Why not?! It is the City of Love after all. With its intricate beauty and romantic backdrop, I couldn’t think of a more perfect location to say “I do.” Planning an elopement in Paris is easy, especially if you have the gorgeous and vibrant Yanique from Elope in Paris on your team! She took care of every fine detail, from locations to makeup and everything in between, she was an absolute pleasure to work with!

For Chris and I, finding the perfect photographer to capture our special day was imperative. As our family and friends weren’t there with us on this joyous occasion we wanted to be able to relive the day with them through still lives. When I came across the most stunning images I had ever seen on an Instagram page (@audreyparisphoto) I knew that we had found the one!

With Audrey’s eye for detail and knowledge of Paris, she captured our day exactly how we had imagined! Now I have the most amazing photographs of my very own fairytale wedding.

From Tamara Gruner Photography and Weddings of Excellence in ProvenceThe delicate rays of the late spring sun cast a mesmerizing spell on the vineyards and surrounding rolling hills. The winding stream waltzed to the tune of the gentle breeze. Nestled in such a whimsical landscape in charming Provence is an elegant and magical piece of land – Blanche Fleur. Adorned in her Nany’n dress the bride started the day by gracing an ancient chapel. Glowing in candle light, all around, she paused to reflect on her magical day. Delicately holding her bouquet of ivory roses she gingerly walked down the aisle – decked with candles – to her beau. Dressed immaculately in his blue tuxedo, the groom was waiting to hold his charming bride. The arch, decorated with pink and white peonies, was the ideal backdrop for an intimate ceremony. The table setting for six, under the veil of an arching tree, was lavishly decorated with roses, peonies and hydrangea, candles, and drift wood. Exquisite hand calligraphed menu and place cards embellished the place setting. The guests were pampered with a wide array of Provençal culinary delights. The day was long gone but the couple strolled in each other’s arms – romancing. They stopped by the vineyards, listened to the rhythm of the flowing brook, and paused to dream. A dream that is now filled only with roses.

Ethereal Countryside Wedding Inspiration

A composition of ethereal gowns and gorgeous backdrops is a show-stopping combo, but add in André Teixeira, Brancoprata behind the vision and you’ve got yourself one out of this world editorial. I’m talking gorgeous T Bakes treats and organic details that’ll draw you in, because this gallery is one that’ll have you pinning for days.

From Sofia Ferreira at BrancoprataT he inspiration behind this ethereal wedding editorial came from the beautiful venue, Convento de Sanpayo, located in the North of Portugal, very close to Spain.

Inspired by the quiet moments before the ceremony, we set out to curate a serene environment by creating a main character, Ana, the bride that has an extremely sense of insight and appreciation of family traditions.

The color palette was inspired by the surrounding landscapes, the richness of deep blues and greens, paired with soft, luminous shades of white.

We wanted the design to feel immensely light and airy while remaining timeless and elegant! The wedding dress designed exclusively for this shoot explored the beauty of simplicity and the importance of family heirlooms.

Lush florals with a variety of textures helped us achieve an even more natural look to the table setting. Even the sugar flowers on top of the beautiful wedding cake look real!
