The Quintessential English Country Wedding

My inspiration for this board comes from all things quintessentially English and summer (Barr the rain!)

When you think of the quintessential traditional summer wedding you automatically think of a beautiful country church decorated with garlands of fragrant roses and summer blooms, church bells ringing, ladies in hats, gents in morning suits and giggling flower girls throwing handfuls of confetti. In fact the English country wedding was summed up beautifully by Hugh Grant et al in Four Weddings and a funeral.

Where better to hold the wedding reception than in a marquee on a freshly mown lawn, sipping Pimms or champagne with strawberries, listening to a string quartet or playing croquet.

Dine on fresh summer produce - poached salmon washed down with ice cold Chablis followed by English strawberries and cream.  A fitting end to your day’s celebration should undoubtedly be a spectacular display of fireworks, watched beneath a balmy summer sky.
