I don’t often blog American weddings. I am unsure why. I always feel that they may be something we can never have, slightly untouchable, but in the best possible way. They are aspirational. I contacted Hannah Thomson after seeing Pamela Love‘s and Matthew Nelson’s wedding asking if I could blog it. Though Pamela was a very different bride to myself, her wedding was effortlessly cool and laid back, I want it. I want her wedding, and you are about to see why.

Do you love it? Isn’t it wonderfully bohemian/folksy/hippie (can it be all three?). All the things we can’t really muster in this country.
