Romantic vintage UK wedding | Photo by Dominique Bader | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=80738

Don’t those dresses and blush-hued bouquets just put a smile on your face? Ellie + Luke’s wedding was all about “relaxed elegance” – which meant lots of romantic pinks, personal décor, and a venue with over 400 years of history. Immediately after choosing the space, they booked photog Dominique Bader to document the day, knowing that she’d capture the atmosphere they spent 15 months planning for. Thanks to Dominique for the photos below!

This building sure is a showstopper. Choosing the Bradbourne House for a venue was a surefire way for E + L to stand out as a couple: it’s an exclusive property that celebrates its history with beautifully decorated rooms and walls lined with family portraits.

Ellie tells it, The flowers were a big feature on the day, as there are so many rooms in Bradbourne house I didn’t want to feel that I had left my wedding when i wandered round the house so Gayle Evans of Bloomingayles made sure the flowers spread throughout the house, the smell was fabulous!

As for music…

The Aisle: A Thousand Years by Christina Perri played by Estilo String Quartet

1st Dance: Magic by Coldplay, this took a long time to pick! Neither of us were looking forward to the prospect of dancing in front of that many people and every generic song recommended on wedding sites just didn’t seem us until we heard this… We loved it!

Ellie’s advice to brides, summed up in three: 1) Get organized, 2) Do your research, 3) Make sure to spend time alone as a couple on the big day

Cheers to the happy couple!

We loved the straw flowers she chose for our classes so much, that we decided to create some desktop and iPhone wallpapers inspired by the bouquets and boutonnieres we teach you how to make in our classes. Jazz hands! You’ll see links to download the files below each photo. Biggest thanks, as always, to our semi-in house photographer Scott Clark Photo, for shooting these pretty images for us.

Lindsay says, Using local tropical greenery and florals of natural greens and whites we were able to use the blue ocean and cliffs as our backdrop to this neutral palette. Props to Maui-based Wildheart on these fabulous tropical arrangements!

Love how fresh + natural this cake looks! Of course we could’ve expected it to be a beauty – remember the rainbow Hawaiian cake by Maui Sweet Cakes that we featured awhile back?!
