Yasmin & Jacob contacted me through a mutual friend. They were getting married locally, where a focus on a relaxed wedding day. Their preferred colour palette wasa soft one, with lots of foliage, whites and greys.
Yasmin told me her favourite flowers were peonies, unfortunately they weren’t in season at the time of her wedding. Instead, I used gorgeous flowers from Pipley Flowers, a flower farm local to me. This meant I was able to use beautiful, locally grown flowers, which included a mix of dahlias, veronica and cosmos amongst others. The snowball dahlias worked beautifully in Yasmin’s hairpiece too, which the hairdresser pinned into her hair do.
Yasmin’s bouquet was completed by a mix of gorgeous silk dyed ribbon in grey, by Silk & Purl and Pompom Blossom.

How did you meet?
Jacob and I met at school when we were 17, Jacob was moved to sit next to me in English class because he was too chatty, and I was super quiet! He was sat on the end of the row, so had no-one else to distract, but won me over with his classic school flirting tactics, we have been together for 4 and half years now!
How did the proposal take place?
Jacobs family is from North Devon. Whilst visiting his family in Georgeham, he decided we should take an afternoon walk along Baggy Point coastal path in Croyde (he had said we’d be meeting his cousin Hannah for a cream tea – who ‘conveniently’ cancelled at the last minute!). We walked along the coastal path on a super sunny Tuesday afternoon, and as we reached the point, looking out across the sea, I turned around to find him on one knee!
How did the wedding planning go?
Jacob and I have been living in separate cities for the past year, so have been attempting to wedding plan whilst 215 miles apart! We’ve had so much support from family and friends which has made the process really enjoyable, and a family affair! We’ve been super excited about getting all of our family and friends in one place, and have really enjoyed planning a day that emulates both of our styles and brings two families together.
What inspired your style for the big day and how would you describe it?
We did consider getting married in North Devon, where Jacob proposed, but settled on Bristol as most of our family and friends lived there. We hoped that we would be able to bring the rustic charm of Devon and the countryside, and blend it with simplicity to create a relaxed, yet sophisticated day. Elements of blue and green have been threaded through our wedding, including the bridesmaids dresses, and we love the nod this gives to the sea and countryside elements of Devon!
