Real Shabby Chic Chandelier Wedding: Angelique & Ricardo

Buckets of brilliant ideas to copy from this gorgeous feature from the e-zine Utterly Engaged. Angelique and Ricardo met at work, but it wasn't until Ricardo spilt a drink over Angelique's dress at a company party that they started dating! Their big day was a wonderful family affair featuring lots of gorgeous handmade and customisable details including bunting, birdcages and chandeliers. Check out the Utterly Engaged website for the full feature, including how the happy couple chose their themes and all their DIY secrets!

Real Travel-Themed Wedding: Lucia & Phil

Inspired by the ocean and the beach, Lucia and Phil chose gorgeous shades of acqua, teal and yellow for their simply heavenly big day earlier this year. As a fellow wedding blogger, Lucia was super-keen to make their wedding unique, and as a consequence, it's a feast of wedding inspiration! Stealworthy ideas start with Lucia's travel theme, which included paper aeroplanes as place markers, a vintage globe, and also a multitude of cakes - why have one when six will suffice! This sequence of shots are taken from the fantastic e-zine Utterly Engaged - check out the link, their wedding magazines are full of ideas. PS.

Real Flamenco Themed Wedding: Barbara & Aaron

When the rain and grey of the UK gets too much, it's time to dream of a destination wedding. Barbara and Aaron celebrated their big day in Orange County, and added a flamenco wedding theme to hark back to their original chance meeting in Spain. I'm loving the rich red of the flowers they chose, and the dramatic black and white lace motif on the table cloths, plus the addition of suitcases and vintage postcards to reflect their travelling past. Huge thanks to photographer Gabriel Ryan and the fabulous e-zine Utterly Engaged for these gorgeous pictures.

Spring Yellow Wedding Theme

Doesn't it feel like the first day of spring to you? We've got lovely golden sunshine in London town, and I'm going to take myself down to Colombia Flower Market and go bulb crazy. There's nothing prettier than planters of fresh daffodils, and I'm feeling hugely inspired by this heart-warming yellow shoot from inspirational e-zine Utterly Engaged.  The stylists have brilliantly illustrated how you can carry your theme from the invitation to cake, without going overboard, and yellowing people out. Plus picking flowers of all the same colour is a great way to add drama without ratcheting up the cost.

Strawberry Fields Wedding Theme

Despite the howling gales outside and the pouring rain, my thoughts have turned to summer - I guess I'm just good at going to my happy place!  But I've been helped along hugely by this the fifth edition of e-zine Utterly Engaged, and in particular, this feature of theirs inspired by strawberry shortcake.  So many ideas, in particular their use of layered linens to create a truly individual effect. In other words, a wonderful source of DIY wedding ideas - don't miss their monthly online magazines.

Real Wedding: Erin & Jeremy

If you haven't discoverd the wedding e-zine Utterly Engaged, you're missing out. Although since I've snaffled a gorgeous rustic wedding from their collection for your viewing pleasure, don't worry too much.... Erin wasn't actually that detail obsessed, but her sister took on plenty of projects on her behalf, and created a truly gorgeous affair. Inspiration came from Erin's love of baby's breath flowers, earth tones and vegan foods, and their big day was a truly eco-friendly wedding. And if you think going green means sacrificing style, check out the gorgeous One Love pictures below.

Real Wedding: Carmen & Vincent

Decorating your wedding reception in these post-credit crunch days doesn't need to be difficult, particularly thanks to the help of the lovely ladies over at Utterly Engaged e-zine. I'm loving the use of eye-catching blue lanterns at Carmen and Vincent's gorgeous wedding, plus the balls of blue carnations. Just goes to show that if you pick a stand-out colour as the basis of your big day theme, then everything else falls into place. Perfect if you're new to party planning.
