UK based couple Hilary and Edward celebrated their summer nuptials in Hilary's native Ottawa. The couple mixed rustic country decor with floral fabrics from Liberty of London for a quaint, casual style. Vintage elements were also incorporated into the day from Hilary's 1940's inspired gown to the couple's exit in a classic white car.

Hilary and Edward's wedding cake from Top of the Hill Bakery was a spin off on a classic summer time dessert: strawberry shortcake.
Hilary and Edward made their getaway in a white vintage car.
Hilary's bridesmaids wore green floral dresses, tying into the day's floral motif. The girls wore their hair in low loose chignons for a romantic flair and carried bouquets of white roses and seeded eucalyptus.
The couple decorated their reception tables with table runners made from Liberty of London fabric, adding a pop of color to the tablescapes. Bunches of white hydrangeas and snapdragons in a mismatched array of vases lent a rustic element to the decor.
The ceremony programs, made by Paper Arrow Press, matched the couple's wedding invitations and incorporated their floral theme.
Platters of assorted gourmet cheeses and chutneys were served to guests during cocktail hour.
Hilary and Edward chose vintage-inspired attire for their wedding looks. Hilary wore a 1940's inspired ivory satin sheath gown with a crew neck neckline decorated with a gathered satin rose accent. Edward donned a classic three-piece gray suit, ditching the suit coat for the reception for a more casual look.
Hilary and Edward worked with Paper Arrow Press in the UK to design modern vintage bespoke wedding stationery in a soft gray and pink color palette.

The UK based couple incorporated the signature floral motifs of Liberty of London into many of their weddings details from table runner to Edward's fun floral tie made from the print house's Edenham L Tana Lawn print.
