Suzanne and Glenn’s gorgeous English wedding party with an Italian twist, by Amanda Karen Photography

An English wedding with an Italian twist? Oh yes… Suzanne and Glenn’s wedding party, which is all kinds of gorgeous, followed an intimate Italian wedding in Florence. So all their friends in the UK could share in the celebrations, they had a reception back home – and it rocks.

“As we had a marquee all the decoration was down to us, we tried to keep it quite simple with cream carpet a white linings a lot of the marquee was open so to bring the outside area in. We hired a bar made from wooden pallets and a few other vintage features from Idyllic days.

I made invites, menus, and a wooden pallet filled with pictures of our families on their wedding days. I love anything like that and really enjoyed finding all the perfect elements for each project.”

Metallica – an alternative styled wedding shoot with Ian Stuart and Kerry Baker, images by Teresa C Photography

Today’s styled shoot features a cast of north west wedding superstars, creative talents I’ve admired since the beginning of the English Wedding Blog a whole 6 years ago. Kerry Baker‘s fabulous make up steals the show. Flowers by Red Floral are breathtaking. Jane at HF Couture‘s designer hair accessories are exquisite; the images by Teresa C Photography are out of this world. This is bridal style without compromise: a brave, striking and different look for those of you who don’t wear pastels. I LOVE this.

Not every bride dreams of a pretty pastel wedding. In the modern age of Pinterest and social media, we are seeing couples experiment more and more with texture and colour. One trend which is set to become very popular is the used of mixed metallics to dress the venue, creating a lavish, decadent and opulent style.

Our gorgeous couple celebrated at the Boathouse Hotel, Trearddur Bay, in Anglesey. I do love the little details, and today’s wedding blog is no exception: the little boats, the cake, Helen’s stunning dress, the flowers… but I’ve also come to appreciate that top hats look best on the dancefloor, and that a massive part of any wedding story takes place after the sun goes down!

Abigail & Mark’s earthy, bohemian tipi wedding with Chocolate Chip Photography

Your Wednesday just got a whole lot more AMAZING… because we have the most beautiful boho wedding for you to get all inspired by this morning. I love everything – Abigail’s dress and her stunning plait, Mark’s super cool look (and his first dance story!), the flowers, the tipi, the wedding bake-off… and I very much think you will be as bowled over by this stunning wedding as I was!

“We aren’t a particularly traditional couple, so we knew from the off that a castle or a fancy hotel wasn’t for us. We knew we wanted a real earthy, bohemian feel so after seeing an advertisement on a magazine we just knew we had to have a tipi. Pitching it at our local cricket club was the ideal place.

“Over the year of planning, my initial earthy theme started to morph into a more Country Garden feel. I sourced some great watering cans and Mark painstakingly cut wood slices for my centerpieces. My florist then filled these with a beautiful arrangement of garden flowers.

A Dorset wedding supplier showcase with organic florals and stunning tablescape!

I love this idea! A group of local wedding suppliers coming together to create something inspiring, with no preconceptions, no rules, just creative freedom… and the result is a stunning shoot with a fabulous tablescape and tons of gorgeous greenery. This is wonderful.

Elaine & Matt’s fabulously colourful English wedding at West Tower, with Samantha Ward Photography

Today’s wedding is guaranteed to bring a smile: the colours are stunning, the styling absolutely beautiful, and the bride and groom gorgeous as can be! Elaine & Matt were married at West Tower, Aughton, and describe their best day ever as “a traditional, bright and colourful day filled with smiles“.

“I wanted a vintage classic dress that would suit my petite figure. However all I knew was that I wanted some lace and a high neck, so I was very open minded.

“In order to give the illusion of height I went for a more figure hugging design. I tried on a huge variety and loved the whole experience of trying on all styles. However, when I put on the dress I chose I knew it was ‘the one.’ My mum could tell by the huge smile on my face.”
