Intimate Dinner Party Wedding Infused with Vintage Glam Details

Intimate weddings have my heart. Intimate weddings dripping in gold and vintage glam? Well, that’s next level. Designed by Jessie Thomson with florals from Rose Hamson, these images from Hannah Millard are pure SMP gold. And the fact that this couple looks like they just stepped off the runway and their son rivals the cuteness of Prince George? Well, that’s all bonus.

From Jessie ThomsonThis celebration was a beautiful exchange of vows between the loveliest of couples who live in Australia, but wanted to create a gorgeous intimate wedding day with their nearest and dearest in the UK. They chose a stunning private house and gardens in The Cotswolds, which was the perfect location for friends and family to come and stay all week, as well as the ideal grounds for an outdoor ceremony and tent reception with a modern vintage glam theme, cocktails, macarons, gold dipped feathers, tassel garlands, gold sequins and blush pink florals!

I helped this beautiful bride with partial planning; creating her a bespoke wedding design scheme and recommending fabulous suppliers, taking over wedding management in the final weeks and styling & co-ordinating everything on the day itself.

With under 30 guests the day felt so special and intimate, and dancing the night away to vintage jazz and candle light was the perfect end to a romantic sunny day.

They have the sweetest love story, and the cutest little boy “Albie” who stole the show before bedtime!

Rustic Elegance Wedding Inspiration in England at Almonry Barn

If I could, I would crawl into these gorgeous images from Naomi Kenton and never leave. Because the styling and florals from Amber Persia are next level pretty. With the oldest barn in England setting the scene, this gallery is one you’ll want to sit with awhile, and you can do so right here

Barn

From Naomi KentonAlmonry Barn is unlike any other wedding barn in England, as not only does it still retain plenty of historical soul and a picturesque setting, but it also offers a super stylish twist of rustic elegance and striking architectural design throughout – perfect for the style conscious couple.

Almonry Barn is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (the same historical league as Stonehenge) and has been standing for over 800 years.

The barn is the oldest wedding barn in England!

It was once part of a beautiful abbey – the ruins of which stand opposite – and was used by the monks to give ‘alms’ to passing pilgrims.

This inspiration shoot offers a relaxed elegance with subtle styling details tying the look together; beautiful hand written place cards, linen napkins, and engraved water glasses, all set against the backdrop of the ancient stone walls.

For the outside setting, the weather worn table and bench, raw linen table runner and Edwardian etched glasses and decanter give the table setting the perfect combination of relaxed style and understated glamour.

From our florist and stylist Amber Persia ”I wanted the flowers to blend into the setting, so I went for meadow-like arrangements, which included ferns and wild flowers in gorgeous aged garden urns”.

The drinks table continued the restrained palette of muted greens and whites with glasses of chilled sparkling water, topped with fresh lime and decorated with slices of cucumber.

Whilst inside the barn, wild strawberries found growing in the cutting garden were the inspiration to create a quintessentially English summer wedding.

The striking magenta dahlias contrast against wonderfully fragrant and truly beautiful roses in hues of pink and white. Sweet peas and fragrant herbs not only add to the garden feel but also bring further scent to the arrangements.

Summer fruit features prominently in the styling, from the wild strawberries in the urn planters and individual fruit on each guest’s place setting, to the piles of fruit in hand-made wooden punnets.

This shoot was all about celebrating the natural beauty, serenity and pared-back luxury of this amazing historical setting for a wedding.

Our gorgeous model is Louise Wilson-Ward, who owns Almonry Barn. Louise is a bride-to-be herself – and can’t wait to get married at home at the barn next year.

The two fabulous pooches are Louise’s dogs, Woofy and Wally – because who doesn’t love a cute doggy at a wedding!

Chic British Countryside Wedding Film

Of all the films we share on this little ol’ blog, Super 8 films sit high atop my favorites list. The absence of voice translates to a powerful and timelessness, accompanied by a sweet song. It’s a visual story that seems to hit my core every time—and this British countryside wedding from Mark Brown Films? It left me with that subtle smile of happiness.

From Mark Brown FilmsA beautiful humanist wedding celebration at Larmer Tree, home to End Of The Road music festival, lost within the rolling wilds of the British countryside and lovingly immortalized on Super 8 Film by Mark Brown Films. Maxine chose a stunning Kate Halfpenny dress, and for her bridesmaids she went with Bespoke. Anthony donned a cut Alexander McQueen suit.

From the beautiful Bride… When I first saw one of Mark’s Super 8 films I cried. It was utterly gorgeous. We were so happy he was part of our day and could capture it through his effortlessly beautiful lenses. My reaction to our film? I was covered in goosebumps and reduced to tears. Everything I had ever dreamed this of being and so much more. Thank you so much Mark for being part of our day and making our memories look so utterly beautiful. Big Love!
