An English country wedding

This weekend was the wedding of one of my oldest friends and not only was it a lovely day, I also had so much fun! I thought it would be nice to share some of my snaps of the day, which was held at a gorgeous Georgian country manor house – Washingborough Hall in Lincoln and the pretty country church that was situated just through a small stone archway next to the Hall.

I didn’t actually buy a new dress for the occasion, but reinvented this unusual looking dress I bought from Tu at Sainsbury’s last year by having it shortened to below the knee and adding a gold metal belt, which I think is a great way of adding that “extra something” to a dress.

My summer wedding outfit: dress by Gok Wan for Tu at Sainsburys; metal belt from ebay; large cross ring from Dorothy Perkins; slim heart and cross ring from Miss Selfridge; shoes from  Miss KG; oversized patent clutch from ASOS; Rimmel 60 Seconds nail polish in Instyle Coral

There was a real “English countryside” feel to the wedding, from the masses of lavender everywhere and the games and toys on the lawn to entertain the children to the welcome glass of Pimms and plates of local fudge to nibble on.

I thought this was a really lovely venue for a wedding with pretty grounds and traditional English country manor décor, and its series of smallish rooms for all of us guests to chill out in gave everything a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. And I have to mention the fabulous food – a trio of fish starters, roast beef and rainbow vegetables for main, and a trio of (amazing) desserts to finish, featuring crème brûlée, fudgy brownie and eton mess.
