Burlap & Peach Modern Desert Wedding

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say we need more peach in the world. More peach and more burlap. Luckily, Karen and John, the happy couple in this real wedding understand the worth if giving good peach and burlap, and celebrated their big day in serious style. I'm loving their cute-as-a-button ring pillow, Karen's gorgeous laid-back style {simple veil, hair down, let the dress do the talking}, the family-style dining tables, and the glamorous golden table numbers. Throw in the wedding favour succulents and bluey mason jar vases, and I'm a very happy wedding blogger. Incredible photographs published with thanks to Sarah Yates.

Real Eco-Friendly Rustic Wedding - Minyoung & Joe

When the bride plays the violin at her own wedding, you're know you're not just dealing with any old big day. I've totally falled for the gorgeous Minyoung and her elegant style. From the subtle succulents in her hair, to her gorgeous ruffle-backed dress, she's class personified. The green theme carried on throughout the wedding with a garden ceremony, pistachio macaroons and cake pops displayed on vintage green cake stands. I'm also loving the place setting plant pots, and Minyoung and Joe's sweetheart table for two - always a good idea if you're planning to circulate during the dinner, and don't want to leave a gap for your other guests to talk over. Truly stunning pictures published with thanks to Jack from Sarah Yates Photography.

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 Colourful Vineyard Wedding: Blake & Ashley

Bold bright colours are much harder to style, but create such memorable weddings, that if you've got the guts then you should go for it. Californian couple Blake and Ashley picked fuschia pink and lemon yellow for their colour scheme, and in the hot bright west-coast light, it all came together beautifully. Their vineyard venue was naturally gorgeous, so they kept their florals to a minimum, with bundles of tulips and a scattering of petals up the aisle. Table displays were cleverly filled with sliced oranges, a fantastic idea to steal for your own big day. I'm also loving how the place markers were wedged into a corks, and the tables named after grapes, all great ways to continue the vineyard theme. Don't miss Ashley's amazing pink shoes - she even spelt out 'I Do' in blue sequins on the soles, as a super-cool 'something blue'. Stunning photos, as ever, from the mega-talented Sarah Yates Photography.

Real Enchanted Garden Wedding: Kelly & Steve

Hold on to your hats! I've got an a-m-a-z-i-n-g wedding for you this rainy Tuesday. Check out Steve and Kelly's big day, hosted in their garden in Los Angeles. Now I know we can't guarantee the weather here, the way they can over on the east coast of the US, but there's so many stealworthy ideas from this wedding, you're going to want to save every single picture in your personal file. Steve and Kelly chose vegetables and berries as well as flowers, to decorate their tables and in the bouquets. I love their little blackboard messages, the sprig of rosemary at each seat, and the twiggy cake. Most of all though, I've fallen for the long communal tables, and the rows of outdoor lights - they look so romantic and starry at night. A big welcome to Sarah Yates who took these gorgeous pictures, she's a seriously talented lady.
