Simple and Effective

This week I went to a wedding which oozed stylish simplicity and elegance. Held in a marquee in the grounds of a beautiful manor house (owned by the bride and groom – I’m very jealous!) it made the perfect private wedding venue for this lovely couple!

Inspired by this elegant and simple wedding I wanted to share some ideas I have seen on how to create something beautiful around these themes.

I love these gorgeous table center pieces,which could be created with flowers from your own garden or sourced locally. Having them in simple glass jars and bottles adds to the simplicity and I think the charm.

I also loved seeing a wedding where there were lovely chairs for guests to sit on rather than chairs with covers. Whilst chair covers look great with some themes I like to see nice matching chair sets too! These can be decorated simply with home maid lacy paper (picture 1) or you can chose the colour of your chairs to match your theme.

Photos 2 and 3 are from who specialise in event hire and have a great selection of chairs and other furniture – I particularly like the colour block stools they also hire which change colour and look amazing (although they don’t quite fit with this post otherwise I would have pictured them too!)

When it comes to wedding dresses simple and sleek are not the easiest to find, however the two Ellis Bridal gowns pictured below I like for their sleek lines and the small details which bring the dress alive.

I love the dress with the high neck lace as it creates an elegant look with the a line shape skirt which is a classic shape. Both of these dresses are Ellis Bridal, I saw them at a local bridal boutique – Hinxworth Bridal 

Then of course you want to accessories, I have seen some truly stunning hair pieces and tiaras, below is one of my current favourits which has been hand made by the lovely Fiona of Enchanted Touches (

This style hair band will suit lots of different hair styles for your big day so you wont be limited and it will create the special added sparkle! For something with a bit more sparkle to add to a pinned up style Fiona also creates combs and hair vines which feature fresh water pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Thank for reading my simple and effective wedding ideas, please leave me a comment and tell me about your wedding ideas!
