English country garden is a great theme for summer weddings – doesn’t it evoke all kinds of lovely images from pink tea roses, crisp linens to white marquees on the lawn and classic white tiered cakes? If you’re planning this kind of look, turn to all that is classic – simple lines, abundant and bright bouquets and chic styling. Start with a simple white dress such as a floor length strapless lace style with trumpet skirt and chapel train by Watters.
Wear a large red rose in your hair for a classic look or opt for a tumbling hair with an ivory ribbon trim veil, £50 J by Jasper Conran at Debenhams. Ask your florist for a handtied bunch of long stemmed pink roses like this bouquet and finish with wrap effect closed toe shoes in duchesse satin, ‘Dunaway’ by Benjamin Adams, £119.95.
