Another wedding outfit request for help

My brother is getting married at the end of August in the UK. It will be a medium / large church, wedding.
I have in mind a dress and possibly slightly dressy lightweight coat / long jacket to go over it. I am 5ft 5 , just under 10 stone and slightly apple shaped, usually about a 12. I suit navy / blues , some shades of silvery grey, some champagne type shades, and certainly feel most comfortable in those.

To give you an idea I thought Shakira Caine looked lovely at Jerry Hall's wedding except a shiny dress would do me no favours.

NB I am not so beautiful as she nor do I have her budget.

Does anyone have a clue where to start looking? My budget is more high st than designer.

Any suggestions welcome.

The longer coat will be more difficult at this time of year, I thought LK Bennett but none at the moment. windsmoor have these ins but they are quite old. How old are you?

For clean lines I think reiss, LK bennett some Karen millen.

This is a lovely coat and there is a matching dress but not sure what you would wear under it if you want separates.

Also saw this blue one but I am not convinced.

Coats are difficult, It seems that there aren´t many options in the hight street, most jackets are cropped

this is pretty:

These are not the colours you have mentioned but I they are shades of pink that would suit a lot of people.
