If my beau and I had gone for a summer soiree rather than an autumn wedding, I’m pretty sure that this is the style we would have chosen. French-inspired, with an effortless easy grace, this look lends itself to romantic summer nights drinking wine and eating gooey cheese (two of my favourite things to do!) as the sun sets over windswept lavender fields.
My flower choice would of course be heaps of lavender, plus blue delphiniums and grey-green Dusty Miller, overflowing from zinc tins and vintage ceramic jugs sitting on toile fabric runners on old oak farmhouse tables. Buttonholes and bouquets would be dressed up with ivory French lace and rustic twine, and we’d be serving red wine from carafes and dancing barefoot to Motown late into the night. Why Motown? No Provence connection, but everyone loves a bit of Baby Love on the dance floor.
