Romantic vintage wedding inspiration at a watermill with a modern fairytale wedding dress and raspberry red wedding florals
Today’s romantic vintage wedding inspiration comes via a beautiful photoshoot from Mademoiselle Fee. Some of my favourite wedding photoshoots have been sent to us from Stefanie at Mademoiselle Fee (you can see them here and here) and they always have a beautiful back story.
The raspberry red wedding florals, a wedding dress inspired by Romanian fairytales, and a romantic dessert table are all set against the backdrop of a 14th Century watermill. So many lovely details and ideas to inspire you for your own wedding if you are wanting a romantic and vintage feel.

Hayley and Iain’s rustic and romantic wedding in the country with hessian, lace and daisies for an intimate feel to the day
Romantic wedding in the country
I took a look back through the Real Weddings we’ve featured on the blog, and it’s been months and months since we last featured one. In other words, it’s been too long – I know how much wonderful inspiration and ideas that other couples’ weddings provide, and we have lots of pretty ones lined up for you.
Today we have the romantic, rustic country wedding of Hayley and Iain who got married in Cheshire this past September which was sent to me by Christopher Ian Photography, one of the great photographers on our directory. Over to Hayley to share with you the details of their beautiful day…
This is one of those wedding cakes that I quite fancy bookmarking and recreating as a birthday cake one day in the future. I really love the combination of the barely-there pale pink icing, and the white blossoms and foliage trailing down the tiers – it’s perfectly finished off with those soft red raspberries.
Not quite wanting to give in to the colourful wedding cakes that remind us of summer, but at the same time wanting to bring a little spring cheer, I’ve chosen this romantic white wedding cake for today’s Cake Love feature.
With it’s pretty selection of white and cream blooms and dotted with sprigs of green mint, it had just the right amount of the hopefulness of warmer days, whilst being quite subtle and soft in its appearance. I am a huge fan of herbs being used for weddings, both incorporated into bouquets, buttonholes and table arrangements, and as well as decorating cakes, drinks and other edibles.
I really wanted to share some inspiration from this wedding because not only is it beautiful but because I’m very familiar with the lovely lady whose wedding it was. The bride, Brigitte, is one of my lovely readers who whilst planning her wedding was always leaving me sweet comments on my blog posts and Facebook page – it’s so nice to be able to become familiar with one of my readers like that.
Brigitte got married in July at Goldbrick House in Bristol and had the styling help of Kirsten, the talent who is The Little Wedding Helper to make her ideas a reality. To honour Paris, the city they got engaged in Brigitte and her fiance Graham included some nice French touches to their day, which had such a romantic feel to it. What I particularly loved was Brigitte’s table decorations and floral arrangements – you often see weddings inspired by Paris, but I think this one captures that essence the nicest.
This bouquet is just so beautiful – and really quite unusual and a bit different to all the other autumn wedding ideas I’ve got to share, because it’s not in shades of red, orange, yellow or brown. Who would have imagined that blush pink garden roses and sprays of unripe blackberries could look so stunning? It’s so romantic!
I’m not sure what else to stay – I just love it. And paired with that beautiful rich blue bridesmaid dress…oh I must stop waffling. If you love this combination like I do, please share your love below and make me feel less silly babbling away about it!
All this week I’m celebrating autumn weddings with lots of ideas and inspiration – so check out all the ideas in my natural autumn wedding special.
Last week was pretty exciting for Nicola from Silver Sixpence in Her Shoe, it saw the launch of her beautiful new ‘Blush’ collection over on Love My Dress (you absolutely must take a look). ‘Blush’ is a super romantic collection of bridal accessories featuring the softest chiffon florals, delicate beadwork, and each handcrafted by Nicola.
I am thrilled to share with you her brand new collection of wedding horseshoe charms, each made from real horseshoes, sourced from local farms and carefully reconditioned by Nicola. As you can imagine, it involves quite a bit of cleaning to transform a horseshoe previously worn by a horse into one of these beautiful charms!
