wedding bells: beautiful ideas and images


So with the big day only just under 5 months to go, I'm knee deep in all things wedding at the moment. Things are slowly getting ticked off the list...we have a brilliant band booked to play at the reception (they'll be doing mainly classic rock/funky songs- strictly no Abba or any kind of wedding cheesiness permitted! We just want music that we both really love and reflects us and that our guests will hopefully also love and which will entice them onto the dancefloor, though don't think they'll be too many problems in that department!)

I have met with the lady who is doing the bouquets so flowers are at the forefront of my mind at the moment, along with all things to do with the table decor and the decoration of the marquee where the reception will be held in the grounds of my parents farm. While researching ideas, I came across the beautiful work of Rebecca Thuss. She is a very talented lady who specialises in creative direction, wedding design and prop and set direction. How amazing is the picture above of a pathway of rose petals. Would love to use this idea as our ceremony is being held out in the garden but the unpredictable British weather could cause a problem if the wind was to pick up!

These are some of more of the gorgeous images from the portfolio on her website .



Love these floral arrangements, and the idea of using simple flower arrangements in mismatched vases of different shapes and sizes on the tables.



These images are adorable....stunning origami and composition. We are definitely having a tower of cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake.





Instead of having favours laid out for each guest, I really like the idea of having a table with jars of different cookies and sweet little paper bags where at the end of the evening guests can help themselves to a few cookies to take home. As my Dad is a dairy farmer I want him to find a way of putting the milk from his herd of cows into little mini glass bottles so we can do cookies and milk (this is more of a pipe dream though!!) Or maybe a candy buffet with beautiful old fashioned sweets in glass jars.



I 'm a big fan of beautiful vintage books and this shot is just stunning. The hand written calligrapy labels add such a nice touch. Would love to incorporate something like his into the wedding but I'm not quite sure how yet!

Those photographs are stunning! I love the pathway with the roses...so romantic!

I served cookies at my wedding too. We also put out sweet wax paper bags for people to take, as well. They wee definitely a hit!

Happy planning, you're blog is great!

I love the picture of the vintage books, too! I all of my own printed materials (save-the-dates, invites, table placecards and numbers). Fun!
