Readers' Wedding: Laura and Dan

I haven't posted a reader's wedding for a while, but I couldn't resist this utterly beautiful one, especially as Laura hired out my own collection of vintage china (one of my first clients!). Textile designers Laura and Dan designed their own tablecloths and napkins, screen-printing them in their studio in Dalston, East London.

The creative couple decked out Ratsbury Barns in Kent with personal and original details, such as handmade paper-cut bunting, family photos strung up with pegs, wild flowers by Cafe des Fleurs and giant wooden initials. Laura's lace dress had a vintage feel but was actually by Australian designer Collette Dinnigan, and I love the vintage bridesmaid dresses too. The results are beautifully shot by photographers Tom & Lindsey Fallon.

Vintage and Handmade Fair

My favourite stand at the small but perfectly formed Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury in the Cotswolds. Donna Flower is a brilliant collector of beautiful vintage fabrics for grown-ups and kids and her stand was so pretty -

Indian Summer

An al fresco breakfast at the Towpath cafe on London's Regent's Canal - a hole in the wall that has become a real gem for loyal regulars, cyclists and passers-by.
