Inspiration from Real Weddings

Welcome to our real wedding story pages. One of the best (and most fun!) ways of getting special inspiration for your unique wedding is to read about, and look at pictures of, things that other couples have done before. You won't want to copy these real weddings, but they will hopefully give you inspiration and food for thought when it comes to planning your own special day. Regardless of where (and how) you choose to get married, our real wedding stories should give you ideas when it comes to venue styling, wedding dress inspiration, wedding colour schemes, fashion for your bridesmaids and more; not forgetting incredible floral displays and sensational wedding cakes. You’ll also get to see which Bijou Partners and wedding suppliers our couples worked with throughout their wedding planning process. Our couples have shared their wedding stories from when they met to where they went on honeymoon and everything in between. We absolutely love watching couples organise and plan their wonderful weddings and it is a pleasure to view the beauty, emotion and real-life stories shared by newlywed couples who celebrated their marriage at one of our country house wedding venues. We invite you to read our collection of real wedding stories ahead of you big day.
