An English Wedding at Blickling Hall with Bicycles & Spring Flowers: Rachel & Josh
We’ve a traditionally pretty English wedding to share with you today – it’s laced with beautiful British blooms like Roses, Gypsophila, Freesia’s & Peonies. You’ll also love the sweet bicycle theme that runs throughout the day.

Jaida, the ‘White One’ by Pronovias was my wedding dress. I tried on all styles of dress and knew that my dress was the one as it was the one that I stayed in the longest.
Our wedding venue Blickling Hall is on our doorstep and we’ve spent many days wondering around the grounds. It’s such a stunning venue that we wanted to share with our family and friends.
Josh wore a Hugo Boss suit with Dessy tie and bicycle cufflinks.
My Father walked me down the aisle to Pachelbel’s Canon.
Karen Fuller, our wedding photographer was amazing and really understood what we wanted to capture on our day.
The bridesmaids dresses and groomsmen suit ties were from Dessy – the colour was celedon.
Josh is a very keen cyclist therefore we had bicycles around the venue and a subtle bicycle theme throughout the day.
We ordered the flowers to arrive 3 days before the wedding and the day before we made all of the table settings.
My father made Seville Orange Marmalade for everyone for the wedding favours.
We decided early on that we wanted to make our cake for the wedding and spent many weekends testing them. My Mum made the cake and Josh decorated the cake with handmade flowers!
We choose ‘Because you make me smile’ by Kyle Andrews for our first dance.
I’m loving the subtle ‘bike theme’ running throughout the day and the beauty of that venue. Blickling Hall. What an amazing place!
