Good morning, friends! Hope your weekend’s going as well as mine so far. I had an amazing day yesterday attending a flower workshop with William Clarke (champagne, chocolate brownies and peonies – how could a girl NOT love it? more about that soon) and then catching up with the Mr & Mrs behind one of my favourite blogs, b.loved. Now it’s time to catch up with a bit of chilltime on the couch getting posts prepared for this week, and get ready, because I have so much loveliness coming your way! But first, here’s the highlights of the week that was:
We started off with pretty pastel polka dot inspiration, with even more lovely pastels in Suzanne & Jasons’s wedding on Tuesday and in our watercolour wedding details roundup later in the week. We also took a trip to the country for the serene Fields of Gold e-shoot, and for a rustic Midlands wedding. Rounding out our real weddings, we had a black & white high tea, and talking of teas, we introduced you to the awesome Bella Chiara for your kitchen tea. Finally, on Friday, we met five fabulous brides, and then brushed up on our Wedlish by learning all the terms you need when thinking about veils. And if you’re all caught up on SBB, here’s what else I loved on the web this week…
- Such a pretty use of daisies in this Italian wedding (make sure you look out for Part 2!)
- I miss Downton Abbey. I do. But until it comes back, here’s some Downton-based wedding inspiration!
- I love the way this couple tied ribbon garlands around the roof of their venue – so sweet!
- Got my magpie fix from the sparkly gold BM dresses at this wedding
- What a lovely way to display drinks!
- I am OBSESSED now that I’ve seen the trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby. OBSESSED. Until that comes out, here’s a super Gatsby-esque e-shoot
- Use chalkboard accents instead of placecards – looks amazing!
- Ah peonies. This is a brilliant way to show them (or other flowers!) off
WEDDING OF THE WEEK
It had to be this completely original wedding of two designers over on The Pretty Blog (keeping it local!). I LOVED their Just Married sign, their aqua-striped dancefloor, their unusual (and not overdone) colour scheme, and their chic modern tables and flowers. Just wonderful.
