And Scandinavian design has always been one of my favourites so I’m super excited to introduce you to Norwegian-born designer and maker Stine Ingvoldstad Svendsen.

If you’ve been hooked on those Scandi thrillers and feeling the love, take a look at Stine’s work.

This utterly romantic woodland wedding shoot reflects the natural beauty of the English countryside through Linda’s latest unique collection of free spirited eco friendly wedding dresses. Totally relaxed with an alternative edge, the collection embraces raw Nature just as she is.

The shoot, which started out as the joint vision of a romantic beach shoot between Linda and photographer Katy McDonnell, set out to showcase more diversity in the models than we usually encounter in your average cookie cutter styled wedding shoot. 

Of course this is what I would expect of Linda, a champion of diversity!

Nature it appears, had other plans, and they ended up in a woodland dell with the sunlight playing through the trees, dancing with the models - a naturally relaxed and dreamy environment for Linda’s unique designs and Katy’s photography.

Today I‘m excited to extend a very warm welcome to lovely people at Heaton House Farm Wedding Venue in Cheshire.

A former dairy farm on the Cheshire/Staffordshire borders, Heaton House boasts a fabulous range of stunning sandstone barns offering that dreamy mix of rustic charm and contemporary chic.  And because of their careful renovation, the barns can be dressed up or down to suit any couple’s dream - romance, bohemian, industrial chic or hoe down.

It's a hidden gem!

“If you're considering a wedding in Devon, do visit Middle Coombe Farm. It's so beautiful and the owners are so lovely you'll have a wonderful time. The farm will always have a special place in our hearts.” Alice and Kev.

I know I shouldn’t be biased where my listed wedding suppliers are concerned but sometimes I just can’t help myself…

One that is very close to my heart for lots of reasons, not least because they have supported Green Union right from the get go (we were rooky businesses together), but also for its strong eco credentials and sheer enthusiasm for making your wedding just the very best experience, is Middle Coombe Farm

I don't know about you, but I love the natural trend for wedding gowns with a bit of colour that 2017 and 2018 brides are leaning towards. 

And this gorgeously blush pink upcycled vintage wedding gown by Real Green Dress is not only a perfect example, but its also got the edge - being a vintage gown its unlike any other cookie cutter wedding dress on the market.

The thing about British Flowers Week is that it’s a celebration of the flowers that are grown here in the UK.

Importantly its worth remembering that it’s not only about supporting our British growers but also focuses on realising that you can use seasonal British grown flowers and foliage all year round. 

It's about encouraging eco friendly and sustainable practises, not only in the florist industry generally but in the wedding business in particular, encouraging brides to consider where their flowers originate, to support their local flower farmers and opt for flowers that are 'grown, not flown' - loving them to pieces!
