Like everyone I’ve become completely obsessed with Instagram, it’s always full of beautiful new images, the community is absolutely stunning and of course it’s a wonderful way to share a little behind the scenes peeks of your business. There really is nothing more wonderful than stumbling upon beautiful instagram accounts, other than of course sharing them with you. In no particular order, here are a few of my favourite new feeds that I stumbled upon recently, they’re beyond stunning and I’ve no doubt that you’ll be a fan of their work in no time. Also don’t forget that you can also follow Made From Scratch on Instagram too, I hope you all have a gorgeous weekend planned. x

It’s not very often, actually it’s incredibly rare, that I don’t post images the full width of my blog – I simply had to bend the rules for this beautiful Bohemian Southern California Wedding that I stumbled upon via 100 Layer Cake the other day, it’s far too stunning not to share. You might remember seeing the brides absolutely gorgeous Martha Webb dress a while ago in this Organic + Sustainable Wedding, there really is something so magical about a colourful wedding dress and the detail on the bodice and orange train on this is beyond breathtaking! There are so many amazing details about this wedding that are absolutely to die for – the venue is like a dream, the simple table settings with handpicked garden flowers and mismatched vintage plates is gorgeous, the rustic dessert table and heart back drop is so perfect and of course the crepe wedding cake looks too far good to eat. I couldn’t imagine anything more wonderful than attending a beautiful wedding like this, be sure to take a peek at 100 Layer Cake to see more of this stunning wedding. Oh, and Happy Friday everyone I hope you have a lovely weekend! x

With Spring well and truly here I’ve been craving beautiful bright pops of colour, delicate pastels, neutrals and touches of gold – Spring really is such a wonderful time of the year where you’re able to shake off the darker hues and layers from Winter and enjoy that sun kissed feeling that the warmer weather brings. Here are a few of my favourite Spring finds to brighten your day, or of course add to your wish list for Christmas – I can’t wait for all of the Spring and Summer festivities to begin, I’ve a feeling it’s going to be the best Summer yet! x
While Ben and I were traveling around Spain in 2009 we stumbled upon this absolutely amazing restaurant/venue hidden away in the back streets of Seville. The second we walked in we immediately decided that if money was no option we would have held our wedding there, the food, music and atmosphere was beyond amazing! The second I saw this stunning garden wedding held in Lisbon on De Alma e Coração‘s incredible blog it quickly brought back all the memories of that beautiful venue in Spain as this was one of our how we originally dreamed our wedding may have looked – we still served the most amazing paella though! The rustic table settings, vintage tins used for cutlery and of course beautiful but incredible simple flowers used at this stunning wedding really does invite you to sit down all night and celebrate with your closest friends and family!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a really lovely weekend! You’ve no doubt guessed from all of my photos of flowers that I’ve become a little obsessed with gardens lately – they’re just so pretty, and of course incredibly rewarding when learning how to become a green thumb pays off and your garden grows some beautiful blooms! To say that I’m completely head over heals in love with this stunning secret garden wedding by Feather and Stone is a little bit of an understatement – everything is beyond perfect and it really does look like something straight out of a Jane Austin novel or of course The Secret Garden it’s self! I’ve no doubt that if we were able to go back in time and re-do our wedding I’d have a garden wedding, it’s just so magical! You can of course see more of this absolutely beautiful wedding by Feather and Stone here. x
