Eliza & Richard’s Hampton Manor Wedding


Images by Jonny Barratt.

I could not love this Spring wedding more.

Eliza & Richard married at Hampton Manor near Birmingham and it really was the perfect choice for their quirky, Modern Vintage and super stylish day. The sartorial choices are second-to-none whilst being budget-friendly, the florals are delicious and there’s also a couple of furry-friends for you to coo over.


Notes from the Bride


We chose Hampton Manor because it was quirky, stylish and centrally located with excellent road, rail and air links.

Stylistically I’d say overall we embraced a fusion of 1920s with the Glasgow School. I’m originally from Glasgow and wanted hints of Charles Rennie Macintosh’s influence in the design of the flowers and our wedding ‘thrones’ (which we each bought for the other and which now sit in our home, being used every day). I was also mindful of the influence of the season and wanted to incorporate Spring blossom as symbolic of our new start together, so we had lots of cherry blossom sprigs dressing the garden and reception room. We hired event stylists, AVA. Amanda and Amy are just fantastically talented and wonderful to work with.

Our flowers were truly outstandingly beautiful. Again they were chosen with a Macintosh influence, particularly the use of fritillaria in the bouquets. We tried to keep a personal touch (as well as a cost saving) by making our own favours and cake… Richard’s famous fudge, individually wrapped and enclosed in little bird cages were our pretty table favours along with some wild flower seeds… for the bees! We had three different types of cake made by myself and two friends. I tried to copy our wedding invitation design on mine. It was rather ‘rustic’! I think I was most pleased with how the homemade veil looked on the day, it made me feel well, very bridal!

Ria & David’s Swanton Morley Wedding

When the bride-to-be is an interior designer, you know that her wedding is going to be super stylish… Well Ria and David’s wedding certainly didn’t disappoint and we were delighted to see they hosted their wedding reception at the gorgeous Swanton Morley House & Gardens last September.

If you’ve not yet met this wedding venue the you simply must take a look; Swanton Morley House is located in the heart of the Norfolk countryside and the venue itself is set within 10 acres of beautiful gardens, woodland and meadow.

Ria and David chose Jason Mark Harris Wedding Photography to capture their special day and we’re so pleased to spot some our fave suppliers including The Little Lending Co. and Hélène Millot amongst the talented team.

Notes from the Venue


Ria started her day with her bridal party at the very chic St Giles Boutique Bed & Breakfast in Norwich and we absolutely love the image showing the moment Ria’s Dad first saw his daughter in her elegant lace wedding gown.

Ria and David’s wedding ceremony was held at St Margaret’s Church in Old Catton, Norwich and whilst the skies were cloudy everybody was delighted that the rain held off so that the guests could still enjoy some confetti throwing at the end of the service.

The rain did eventually start upon David and Ria’s arrival at Swanton Morley House & Gardens but this did not deter them from getting some lovely shots on our tree lined drive and in the woodland whilst guests enjoyed drinks and canapés

Jasmine & Will’s Wedding at The Green Cornwall


Images by A Thing Like That Photography.

Could this feature image be any more romantic…? I think not.

This is Jasmine & Will and they celebrated their wedding day and the utterly epic The Green in Cornwall. A versatile, rustic blank canvas of a venue it also offers the most magical outdoor wedding ceremonies under their gorgeous arbour.

I’m completely in awe of this couple’s handy work! If their wood slice welcome signs and pallet tableplans have you reaching for your Woodwork 101 Guide then I don’t blame you.


Notes from The Wedding Venue


We just love these stunning photos of Jasmine and Will’s romantic English wedding at our venue, The Green Cornwall. The feel of the day was understated, elegant, natural and romantic with a Boho edge and they celebrated with 60 of their friends and family.

Louise & Huw’s Hill Place Wedding

A bright, spring wedding full of glorious pops of colour, delicious flowers, maids in red, boys playing rugby and excellent sartorial choices by the bride herself.

Hill Place was their venue, an idyllic spot in the Hampshire countryside, and it was the perfect backdrop to Louise & Huw’s relaxed and fun celebrations.

If you love this wedding, then the ladies behind Hill Place also run What Peggy Did Next –  a team of creatives who plan events, weddings and fairs. Their next Bridal Bazaar is happening on Sunday 2nd April 2017 and you can discover more about this in our Event Diary.

But for now let’s all be guests at Louise & Huw’s big day!

Notes from Hill Place


At Hill Place, our Georgian home nestled in Hampshire’s Meon Valley, we are lucky enough to host some exceptional weddings and Louise & Huw’s last summer will stick with our team for a long time.

Louise and Huw live in Australia but made the trip back to their home county to celebrate their relaxed, fun-filled big day with friends and family in May 2016. We couldn’t have asked for a better day – the sun was shining (which meant an action packed weekend of lawn games for our outdoor-loving guests), plus we had a great team on hand, including Hill Place’s catering partners Smallpiece Catering and brilliant recommended florist, Louise Avery.

Anna & Tom’s H-Coo Events Wedding

A simple, relaxed, rustic wedding day filled with friends & family, games, good music and lots of yummy food! That’s what it’s all about right…?

We love Anna & Tom’s big day at The Grange and it was styled to perfection with the assistance of Elizabeth, the in-house stylist and coordinator (aka H-Coo Events) at this beautiful Somerset wedding venue.

Happy Friday folks!

Notes from H-coo Events


I’m delighted to share these beautiful photos of Anna & Tom’s Wedding, who had their reception here at The Grange earlier this summer, after a local Church Wedding. It was a stunning day with rustic and romantic details.
