English Rose Inspired Vintage Style Wedding

English Rose Wedding Inspiration Board

… another delicate hint at vintage and then at the request of Liz, I promise to bring you something completely different.  This one is for Poppy though, as I know she is with me on the adoration of unashamed romanticism … and what, dear Poppy, could be more romantic than the English Rose? 

I love this subtle take on vintage … everything about it is just so beautifully understated.  The roses are from the Real Flower Company.  They are real scented English garden roses grown on their own farms and they come in some gorgeous but very natural colours.

Placing one perfect bloom on each plate is such a simple idea but works so perfectly with this relaxed pared down wedding inspiration and means there is no need for favours.  If you did want to include a favour however, how about a rose quartz heart tied to the blooms with a flick of velvet or organza ribbon.  Rose quartz to those who don’t know is the stone of love … in fact if you added a quote about love and the value of rose quartz to the place setting, before attaching that also, then this would make a lovely favour.

The Real Flower company  also do some stunning hat box designs which would look fab in the centre  of a round table and would double up as gifts too.

The simple but stunning cake by chocolateweddingcakes.co.uk  is scrummy yummy chocolate hiding behind the façade of the softest pink, which can be colour matched to your scheme. That the cake is so perfectly simple means the gorgeous English roses can once again delight us with their quintessential beauty.

In keeping with the delicate, English, vintage rose theme I found this gorgeous bracelet by Bespoken For.  As each is made to order you are even able to choose your own pearl colours thus reflecting your theme perfectly.

Of course the real English rose here is the stunning bride and I just love the Hollywood A Lister feel of this photograph by Black Tie Visuals  …

Love it … all of it … even thinking I might marry Bri after all :-O x
