I have totally morphed into an Anglophile recently- must be our impending trip to London this fall that’s got me feeling like EVERYTHING is cooler when British. I mean, isn’t it true that anyone is made so much hotter with a British accent? I happen to think so…. Take a look at this awesomely cool and beautiful wedding in England shot by Emma Case at the quaintest inn called Hipping Hall. Stone houses make me weak in the knees and I so wish I could be here right now wearing Wellies and drinking tea (and by tea I mean wine).
My youngest brother and his girlfriend recently got engaged and so I’ve been looking at a lot of wedding images as I help them plan their small country wedding at my parent’s home next spring. This English garden wedding popped up from (100 Layer Cake)when I was searching for Jenny Packham images last week, and I had to post. Such a sweet, laid back garden themed wedding with two SUPER glamorous dresses (the second number being, you got it, Jenny Packham)
To begin, the bride wore an off the rack Valentino. Stunning.
When a setting is this gorgeous, you need not overdo the decorations….
The couple had little picnic boxes out for the guest right after the ceremony to snack on. Brilllllllliant.
I. FRIGGIN’. DIE.
So simple and lovely.
Love the details…especially these little table number stakes in pots!
GAH! That dress!
And if you love weddings and haven’t seen this short film on model Coco Rocha’s wedding in France you should take the time to do so. Her Zac Posen gown is worth it alone…. (via Dress Design Decor)
While I am on vacation this week I’ll still be blogging here and there from the islands with dedicated daily posts welcoming my fabulous new slew of sponsors that help keep this blog going! Today I am delighted to welcome Boutique Design, a New England based event planning company that crafts delightful, stylish, detail-oriented events (weddings, specifically). I am particularly wedding focused right now as my youngest brother proposed to his amazing girlfriend not two weeks ago and I am helping them plan their wedding (congrats Connor and Lizzie- I promise not to interfere with my hyper event planning enthusiasm)! Check out these fabulous snapshots from some of Boutique Design’s past events and contact them for your wedding panning needs!
And speaking of weddings- not all of us can spend six figures on the quadruple tiered silk taffeta crystal encrusted event of our dreams- but you don;t have to in order to have an INCREDIBLE event. Have you checked out the budget friendly new Vera Wang line at David’s Bridal ? ( Disclaimer: I still hold a grudge against Vera Wang for my wedding dress catastrophe but I had to share this source….even thoug it kills me to make her more money.)
These two one shouldered numbers are amazing and are $1,200 and $600 respectively. I friggin’ love them. And as someone who lost a massive deposit on a dress that I was mis-measured for (ahem…VERA…ahem) and then spend a small fortune on another quick pick dress (Monique Lhullier) that was on me for all of 8 hours and now sits in a sad little box in my closet at home, I can say with all honesty –don’t spend a fortune on your dress unless you sleep on a mattress stuffed with money. It’s silly and the biggest mistake I made at my wedding. Ignore the label, trust your instincts.
Or how about this two in one dress where you can zip off the skirt to make a second look for dancing? Brills.
OK, off I go for some vitamin d and a little glow!
