Chloe’s Most Ravishing Real Weddings

08 May 2012
by Fran @ Hitched

In a bid to banish the post bank holiday blues, I’ve scoured the action-packed archives here at hitched HQ, unearthing the most ravishing real weddings that the UK’s number one wedding website (oh stop it, we’re blushing!) has to offer.  

An inspiration-packed part of the site, the hitched real wedding section is great for gleaming ideas for your wedding day, whether it’s a wedding theme, colour scheme or décor idea that you’re after. Our own hitched honeymooner, Mrs. Plan With Fran herself, took inspiration from Sarah and Michael’s real wedding.

So without further ado, Plan With… Chloe presents a roll of real wedding favourites, kicking off with Stacey and Terry’s effortlessly elegant event!

Complete with a sumptuously shabby chic feel, Stacey and Terry’s light, bright and airy summer wedding day is simply stunning. I am in love with the immaculate and contemporary styling of crisp and clean lines. The relaxed and informal feel to the wedding day is enticing, as is the subtle and not too matchy matchy colour scheme; a loose palette of red, white and blue. The hint of the in vogue great British wedding day theme is oh so endearing and I love the fact that the wedding décor has been created using ‘investment items’- more on this terrific topic later in the week.  

A self-confessed purple fiend, I could be easily swayed to the dark side with real wedding couple Laura and Stuart’s plum shade of perfection. An utterly beautiful bridal bouquet, I absolutely adore the whimsical combination of the delicate pink and taupe roses paired with the harsh thistles and fresh green berries. Also scrapbooked as a firm favourite of mine are Laura’s bridesmaids’ dresses. A delicate and flowing style, these beautiful bridesmaid gowns are fabulously flattering and very versatile; suited to weddings in all seasons and understated enough that they can be worn again- crucial credit crunch criteria! 

Continuing with the purple theme, Vikki and Chris’ tulip bridal bouquets of plum and ivory had me as happy as a clam. Representing elegance and grace, this favourite flower of mine is a fine-looking floral and apt choice of bridal bloom. Jane and Alan hosted an exquisite destination wedding in the radiant region of the Dordogne; a real wedding with a touch of je ne sais quoi and well worth a sneaky peek! Channelling a current and coveted trend, Jane opted for varying shades of the same colour palette, choosing tasty turquoise for her magnificent maids.  

Winding up with tempting bridal tresses, Julie’s luscious locks are a wedding day hair-do to die for and I absolutely love Jo’s retro bridal bouffant. 

If you’ve felt inspired by some of my top picks then why not peruse our real weddings section at your leisure? Let the creative juices flow and compile your own ravishing real wedding hot list using our marvellous moodboard tool.

Go on, you know you want to!

Until next time,
