Morning! I hope you had a lovely weekend? It was glorious in Leeds for about two thirds of it so Atticus and I romped through fields, watched children fly kites and managed to fall over, twice. You may have seen some beautiful wedding dresses being shared over on my instagram (@phoebewedding) as it was New York Bridal Fashion Week recently. This has just got me so excited as we are going to be attending Barcelona and London’s bridal weeks next month. So make sure you’re following on there to see what we will be lusting after in 2016.

On to today’s gorgeous wedding! I think as soon as you see the first few images from Caterina and Tom’s day you will know it was destined to be on SYGM. Bunting, tweed, pretty photography, the english country-side, blushing bride and a dapper groom. Also loving the Miss Selfridge bridesmaid dresses that I managed to track down thanks to instagram. Enjoy!

I spent months analyzing every little detail- getting stressed about having everything matching (even had a panic as I had to buy two different shades of hessian!)…on the day you really couldn’t care less about any of the “things”, only all of the beautiful moments, emotions and people that make the day perfect (even with mismatched hessian!)
