Real Floral Filled Wedding: Eric & Emily

At some weddings it's all about the dress. At others, the food or the venue. At this gorgeous private ranch wedding, it was all about the flowers. If you're struggling to find inspiration for your florals, look no further than the pictures of the amazing vintage-chic arrangements at Eric and Emily's big day. Copy their style by using old-fashioned containers for simple white blooms - check out car boot sales for old watering cans, watering troughs and urns. Loving the colour pop of the bright yellow in the bridesmaids' bouquets, and their neutral dresses. Everyone looks good in elegant silvery taupe. Other stealworthy ideas include the long banqueting-style tables and outdoor dining, something I'm hoping to do at my own wedding. Thanks to Sarah Yates Photography for her stunning pictures.

Real Vintage Autumn Wedding: Kyle & Jonny Part 2

Autumn wedding fabulousness Part 2. There was too much gorgeousness in Kyle and Jonny's beautiful wedding, I've had to split it into two! Here are all the pretty ceremony and reception wedding details. I'm loving the outdoor ceremony setting by the sea, and cute gazebo alter area and its extravagant floral arch. Other stealworthy wedding details include the warm chocolate-brown bridesmaids' dresses and table cloths {who says they have to be white!}, plus the super-cool recycled, vintage bottle candles from Glassed Over. More fabulous wedding details as you scroll through the pictures. Huge thanks to the lovely Casey from Figlewicz Photography for these beautiful photographs.

Stunning copper roses, birch twigs and zinnias make up the striking floral arch.

Completely in love with the ushers in traditional Scottish dress, complete with sporrans!

Love this picture! Always make time for a group shot if you can. One way is to do a first-look shoot ahead of walking down the aisle, although most British brides prefer to save that moment to the ceremony.

Loving the warm autumn colour palette. The woody elements play on Kyle and Jonny's married surname.

Stunning table flowers by Rolling Hills Flower Mart. There's a real mix of exotic and classic flowers here, plus berries and autumn leaves.

If you look closely, there's even a cute little wood block in the centre to give height to the centre candle.

Loving the wrap of the family tartan around the bottles in the pictures below. It's the same as on the ushers' kilts!

Such a beautiful wedding cake. Have you spotted how the florist has used autumn fruits as embellishments? A seriously easy and effective DIY wedding idea!

Real Vintage Autumn Wedding: Kyle & Jonny

Autumn brides listen up! You're going to love the wedding inspiration you'll get from this gorgeous seaside wedding. Fabulous couple, Kyle and Jonny celebrated their big day at Erhart’s By The Sea in Fort MacArthur in Calig. I'm loving all their wedding details from the autumnal colour palette, Kyle's beautiful strapless La Soie wedding gown, her cute lacy garter {definitely a US tradition we should export to the UK}, and most of all Jonny's kilt!! Huge kudos to Kyle and Jonny for putting their bridesmaids and ushers in coordinated outfits - we do like a well-turned out wedding party and it makes for the best pictures! More wedding details in Part 2, published this lunchtime. Huge thanks to the talented Figlewicz Photography for these beautiful pictures.

Love the colours in this bouquet. Berries are always a beautiful addition to autumn wedding bouquets.

The kilt and sporran! Always a great idea to reflect your heritage on your wedding day.

This is Jonny's dad's Classic Woody!

Real Wedding: Sara & Jared

Rustic charm has got to be one of the best looks for a wedding. And if you're considering it for your big day style, then feast your eyes on this humdinger of a marriage. Sara and Jared celebrated their big day in their home town of San Diego, in a fabulous venue built in 1895. Nothing like a bit of history to add a touch of gravitas to the occasion! Jared's a photographer, so the lovely Sara France who took these pics, was more than a little nervous about doing the honours. But didn't she do a good job! Sara the bride {to avoid confusion!} picked a muted colour palette, with rich golden browns, creams and a soft dove grey; an original choice, which really flattered her colouring. I love Sara's bridemaids' dresses, with their elegant brocade detailing, and the vintage clasps on her bouquet. With a bride this beautiful, there was no need for any veil and statement jewellery, just a simple diamond pendant and ear-rings. A lesson in understated elegance. P.S. Don't miss the ice-cake! I'm not sure why they went for it, but it's certainly an unusual idea!

Real Wedding: Jennifer & Oliver

London is one of the most inspiring cities in the world, so it's not surprising that LDN weddings tend to rock my world. There's so many iconic images that can be incorporated into your big day, from black cabs to red buses, the River Thames, the tube, Big Ben and of course soldiers in bearskin hats. Jen and Olly managed to find a fair few of those details on their post-ceremony walk down The Mall, and it really adds to the atmosphere of their pictures. But the details don't stop there! Throw in Jen's Vera Wang dress, an orchid bouquet, and the breathtaking London Oratory, and you've got a wedding made in heaven. I particularly love the room in the The Waldorf Hilton where they celebrated their reception, it's so light and airy and elegant. Don't miss the last pics, as Jen and Olly performed a fabulously choreographed foxtrot for their first dance. A great idea for a couple who aren't that confident on the dance floor. Try Wedding Day Dance for your own lessons. Huge thanks to Lily & Frank Photography for their gorgeous pictures.
