An Historic Castle Wedding with Rich Purple Detailing

If you've read this blog for a while, you'll know I get tearful every time I watch one of Deneemotion's incredible wedding videos. Denis creates these gorgeous trailers for his full-length videos, and they're the perfect taster to send your wedding guests after your big day. One of his recent couples, Stacey and Matt celebrated their wedding at the gorgeous Lympne Castle in Kent. I'm a complete sucker for an historic venue, and I love how Stacey chose a royal purple, as her signature colour - the shade suits the venue perfectly - and it happens to be Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2014! With elegant full-length bridesmaids gowns, fabulous Mischka Badgley shoes, and stunning orchid buttonholes to reflect Stacey's heritage - this lovely wedding is a lesson in elegant sophistication.

Real Pearl-Themed Glamorous Barn Wedding: The Reception Details

There's a deliciously warm feeling to this big day. I reckon it's partly down to the lovely cream and gold colour palette, and partly down to the lovely barn reception. I've always loved rustic wedding venues, and barns can be dressed down for a straw bales and bunting-style wedding, or up for a glamorous wedding like this one! Emma and Alistair chose Lains Barn in Oxfordshire for their summer wedding, and used delicate birdcages, vintage pictures frames and orchids in their wedding decorations. You'll want to fill your Pinterest boards with shots of Emma's amazing Justin Alexander wedding gown, her pretty flower girls, their DIY pearl-detail place markers and their hand-stamped sweetie bags. Huge thanks to Kate Gray for her beautiful wedding pictures. I first discovered Kate's creative children's portraits for my baby blog, Before the Baby, so I'm thrilled to now publish her wedding work!

We celebrated our wedding at Lains Barn in Wantage, Oxfordshire on 21st June 2013.

Real Pearl-Themed Glamorous Barn Wedding: Emma & Alistair

There's something glamorous about a cream and gold palette at a wedding. Add a Justin Alexander wedding dress, hundreds of orchid blooms and pretty pearl detailing, and you've got a truly stunning big day. Emma and Alistair chose Lains Barn in Oxfordshire as their wedding venue, and I love the warm intimacy of space, and the romantic drapes and fairy lights. My other loves include Alistair's fantastic modern suit and waistcoat combo from Jack Bunneys, Emma's side ponytail hair-style and Kate Gray's, lovely wedding photography! Plus, I'll let you into Emma's money-saving secret - all the orchids were silk flowers from Silk Blooms rather than fresh blooms. No one could tell, and it means her wedding bouquet will last forever! Stay tuned for Emma and Alistair's wedding reception details, you won't want to miss the pretty birdcage details.

My decision over my wedding dress and veil were based on wanting something elegant, with great attention to small details, but without being over the top.

Real Orchid & Elegance Wedding: Madeline & Coby

Everyone now and then it's great to indulge your feminine side, and if your future husband will let you, there's nothing more romantic than a pink-themed wedding. Madeline and Coby's wedding was inspired by Coco Chanel’s early ad campaigns, and I'm loving the classic style of Madeline's bridesmaids' dresses and her Enzoani strapless gown. Check out the gorgeous florals - Madeline's bouquet included spray roses, pale pink cymbidium orchids, and mini calla lilies - yum! The happy couple also used fresh flowers to decorate their cake, to stunning effect. Definitely an idea worth stealing - you could use your own signature blooms to make a simple white layer cake your own. Lovely photos as ever from the ladies at Simply Bloom Photography.

Real Summer Yellow-Themed Wedding: Caroline & Toby

As the rain falls on Jubilee London, this sunny-themed wedding is a glorious reminder of the English countryside in the summer. Caroline and Toby celebrated their big day with a traditional wedding ceremony at St. Margaret The Queen Church followed by a quintessentially English wedding reception at the Buxted Park Hotel, complete with Pimm's! I'm loving the lemon yellow theme chosen by Caroline for her elegant bridesmaids' dresses and flowers. The freesias and miniature roses in the bouquets must have smelled heavenly, and look great as buttonholes against the dark of the ushers' morning suits. Lemon trees and orchids decorated the reception, and if you look closely you'll spot the guests' names written on fresh green leaves as place markers. Tonnes of wedding ideas to steal - huge thanks to Nick and Belle of Wild Weddings for these stunning pictures - for more, check out our Facebook page.
