The Latitude Wedding – Neil and Nadine Marry at Latitude festival Part 2 –  In 2013 Festival Brides in association with Festival Republic ran a competition for 1 couple to win their wedding at Latitude Festival! This was a huge project for us as we organised everything from the amazing cake supplied by Choccywoccydoodah to the camping village supplied by Blue Bell Tents. The lucky winners Neil and Nadine won the wedding of their dreams, spread over 3 days, at their favourite music festival. This is part 2 (my favourite part!) of their epic wedding captured brilliantly by Chris Barber Photography.

Rug Love – We do love a rug or two at a wedding and in this inspiration post we give you lots of ideas on how then can be used. Lay them in your aisle, use them as a ceremony backdrop or wrap them around you – anything goes!

Mr and Mrs Mannequin – I love this shoot put together by Charlotte from Wilden Bride and Kate of Vintage Style Hire. It tells the story of Mr and Mrs Mannequin who, after years of loneliness, finally came together in a beautifully styled wedding ceremony at Kate’s barn. Such a good idea for a wedding shoot! Well done ladies.
