An Autumn wedding that combines Old Hollywood glamour with iconic London cityscapes, a relaxed and personal reception with a sprinkling of rain like only London know knows how.
This wedding has such a perfect balance of glamour but with an effortless relaxed format. Inspired by the 1940s, this couple looked every inch the part with the bride in a dazzling Eliza Jane Howell gown and delicate Britten Wedding veil and a bouquet by Daisy Ellen Floral Design that echoed not only the season but the shades of burgundy to co-ordinate with a very dashing groom.
Victoria’s hair and make is up such a gorgeous timeless look, which I’m sure will serve as great inspiration for brides out there. After a traditional Roman Catholic ceremony at the breathtakingly beautiful St Etheldredas Church, the couple and their guests hopped on a gold London bus (who thought a bus could have a hint of glitz?) and took to the iconic areas of St Paul’s for a beautiful backdrop for their portraits with their photographer Louise Adby.
In contrast they chose the relaxed pub setting of The Happenstance in the city where they could indulge in good food and drink whilst adding personal touches to the day for their guests to enjoy such as a temporary tattoo station and a Krispy Kreme doughnut cake. We love how this story transitions through the photographs, and particularly the evening dancing images which just show how much fun was had right until the end of the night!

Sometimes you meet people in the wedding industry who’s work is a breath of fresh air and who’s talent shines through. Having seen in person, the floral artistry work of Vervain at A Most Curious Wedding Fair I was just so drawn to owner India Hurst’s style and also her ethos that I wanted to share this with you on the blog.
Vervain is a flower studio specialising in creating unique floristry; orchestrated chaos. With a background in art and design and horticulture, I think India combines natural beauty with a creative eye to create unique floral styling. Designs are tailored to each couple’s style and are suited to those who appreciate how flowers can enhance their aesthetic and express their personality through the atmosphere of their wedding.

I’m seeing a huge floral trend at the moment for bouquets and floral displays that are unusually structured. Gone are the days of symmetry it’s all about interesting silhouettes, differing heights and shapes all making an asymmetric floral statement. It gives a really natural, wild feel and the textures are brought to life by the colours and differing sizes of the flower heads.
Here are a few of my favourites…

I particularly love these lop-sided arrangements. Do you like the wild and unkempt look or do you prefer your florals to be a little more formal and perhaps structured?
