A Magical Forest Wedding with a Secret Nightclub - Part 2

Welcome to the wedding reception of the year! I've never seen anything as gorgeous as the marquee decorations at Nels and Antony's wedding - giant blossom branches, stunning green drapery and sparkly fairy lights create a magical forest-feel. It's all thanks to the creative energies of wedding planner Kelly Chandler from The Bespoke Wedding Company and event stylists, Crescent Moon. I love how they included the pond from the grounds inside the marquee, and added floating hydrangea blooms for an incredibly romantic effect. Other stealworthy details include the hilarious pork pie wedding cake, and Nels' slate wedding favours cum place markers. Also their secret budget buy - an M&S three-tier traditional cake, decorated with flowers, for a luxe effect! Thank you to both Bibi Basch and Crescent Moon for capturing every detail of this gorgeous wedding.

A Magical Forest Wedding with a Secret Nightclub

Can you imagine only having four months to plan your wedding? That's how long Nels and Antony gave themselves, but thanks to the help of wedding planner extraordinaire, Kelly Chandler from The Bespoke Wedding Company, they created a truly extraordinary day. Their wedding reception marquee is like something from a fairy-tale - huge branches of cherry blossom, and a sparkling pond. But the pièce de resistance came later in the evening, when a curtain was drawn back to reveal an entirely differently themed black and white dance area, and then another reveal moment introduced a hidden 'man snug' filled with Chesterfield sofas and whisky. Amazing! Don't miss the pictures in Part 2, published later today. Other details to steal include Nels' beautiful David Tutera wedding gown, complete with extra sparkles, her pretty pink and teal colour scheme, and Antony's seriously dapper vintage morning suit. Huge thanks to both Bibi Basch and Crescent Moon for permission to publish these stunning photographs, and for capturing every detail!

Real Spring Vintage Wedding: Laura & Brandon

A truly stunning wedding for you this fine Thursday {one day to the weekend, yipee!}. The gorgeous bride, Laura, chose a library wedding theme, to reflect her own studies in libary science. Throw in a few vintage wedding details, including an old globe, a library card catalog 'guest-book' and vintage vases and you've got tonnes of fantastic wedding inspiration. I'm loving all the DIY wedding details - Laura's mother's friends filled little bottles with locally grown organic wildflowers, that they bought by the bucketful from their local florist. Another favourite is their blossom studded wedding cake, the candy bar, Laura's amazing Justin Alexander gown, and the gorgeous, chic green stationery.

Blush Blossom Wedding Inspiration & A Claire Pettibone Gown

Dreamy blush dresses, vintage less, and delicate cherry blossom. It doesn't get better than Claire Pettibone wedding dresses, and divine pictures by This Modern Romance. I love the decadent mood, the dramatic veils worn high over the forehead, and the heavy peony hair accessories by Erica Elizabeth Designs. The pink parasol is a work of art, buy one from Bella Umbrella in the US, or Brollies Galore here in the UK. It seems next wedding season is all about a narrow silhouette - stunning!

Real Winter Wonderland Wedding: Allison & Charlie

This wedding is a true inspiration for those of you getting married in the winter, but want to say your vows in natural light. Allison and Charlie made the most of a beautiful February day, hosting their reception in a clear marquee, surrounded by a magical indoor 'forest' of silver birch and blossom. Both Allison and Charlie are keen animal-lovers, and actual creatures played a huge part in the theming of this big day. From baby chicks, to birds-eggs and donkeys plus Allison's white horse, this wedding was totally at one with the natural world. I'm loving Allison's style - her stunning dress and fake-fur-lined boots go to show that you don't have to compromise on cool if you're getting married in the cold. Huge thanks to Our Labour of Love for these exquisite photos.

Before the Big Day Wedding Theme: Blossom

All these lovely spring days have got me thinking of a blossom themed wedding. There's something uniquely romantic about blossom raining down like confetti, and it's a lovely feminine motif for a spring wedding. Choose some of these gorgeous Etsy products to add a tinge of pink to your big day.

Real Bright Pink-Themed Wedding: Andrea & Troy

Let's inject a good old dose of colour into this Monday morning with this fabulous hot-pink summer wedding. I've totally fallen for the men in uniform, including Andrea's gorgeous groom, Troy, who wore his US navy dress suit, and looked seriously dapper. Also loving the bright pink confetti, peony pomanders and bouquets plus the purple accents in the bridesmaids' dresses. Most of all I love the sunshine! Fantastic picures published with thanks to Furious Photographers - don't miss the last two pics of the evening reception - it looks like everyone was having a riot!

Cherry Blossom

Blossom is a gorgeous motif for a wedding day. It symbolises the flowering of something new, the start of a hopeful future, and more to the point, it's really pretty!  Along those lines, I've recently fallen hard for Shaun Leane's new collection, inspired by one of Japan’s oldest tales. According to legend, cherry blossoms are believed to bloom from seeds sprinkled by a goddess from the clouds of Fuji Mountain - how romantic! Shaun's collection includes a combination of beautiful silver branches, soft enamel flowers and precious stones, and you can find it in stores throughout the UK.

Real Wedding: Anli & Kenneth

Is there anything more stunning than a magnolia tree in full bloom?  The heavenly pink petals gently unfurl, bringing much-needed colour to the early spring landscape. And don't they make the best backdrop for gorgeous wedding photos? Anli and Kenneth celebrated their big day earlier this year, and I just love these fantastic photographs by Karen Wise.  Check out the Chinese bamboo and paper parasols - soooo chic, and super cheap from Brollies Galore.
