Zoe and Alex's rustic hippy outdoor wedding with a barefoot bride in a boho wedding dress // Photography Mariell Amelie // Flowers by Forage and Blossom // The Natural Wedding Company

Oh what a beauty of a wedding this is, with this effortlessly stylish barefoot bride in her boho two-piece wedding “dress” and the outdoor ceremony beneath an archway of weathered branches. I have literally spent hours attempting to whittle down the photos I received for Zoe and Alex’s stunning wedding, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me for not doing great at cutting them down, because they are pretty awesome.

A special thanks goes out to Alice at Forage and Blossom, one of our fab recommended suppliers and the florist for Zoe and Alex. All those gorgeous white, pale cream and green bouquets, flower crowns and arrangements – those are her work. Alice is also the one who helped get this beautiful wedding to grace our pages.

Put on some music and find somewhere to get comfy, because Zoe and Alex’s wedding deserves all the time you can give it to soak up a truly special celebration. If you are worrying about all the details you need to “have” to create the wedding of your dreams, I hope that Zoe and Alex will show you that you only need a few carefully selected elements and lots of laughter. Over to Zoe…

A rustic naked wedding cake entwined with thyme sprigs for a winter wedding

Apologies for the break in my Cake Love posts, I have been busy taking care of baby Tilly and my sister Izzy has been snowed under with a project at University, so it’s been a challenge to keep up with the blog recently.

I wanted to start sharing some more wintry wedding ideas and inspiration as we head towards December – can you believe it’s almost here?!  Well this cake that I found to share with you today isn’t an actual wedding cake, but I think it would be rather lovely for a couple who want a cake that’s really down-to-earth.

It’s in the ‘naked cake’ style that has been quite popular this year, with its rough icing, which I think gives it a sort of ‘frosty’ appearance – perfect for a winter wedding.  The thyme sprigs that have been wrapped around also give it that wintry feel and I love the wild look they give the cake.

Naked wedding cake decorated with ferns

I’ve been looking longingly at this naked wedding cake that’s been sat in my folder just calling at me to share it.  Isn’t it just so natural and understated and beautiful?

I’ve decided it’s layers of chocolate cake sandwiched together with freshly whipped cream – what wedding guests wouldn’t want to tuck into a slice of that (do you think you get a slice of all four layers?!).  Simply decorated with some fern leaves, this wedding cake would be an ideal project for any of you brides-to-be who want a homemade cake.

On the subject of cake, it’s looking like I might be consuming rather a lot next week as I’m off to the West Country on a TNWC Roadtrip.  I’m going to be visiting wedding businesses across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall and I’d love you to follow along my journey – there are full details here on my TNWC South West Roadtrip.
