Kasia Nowak describes her photography style as “more than documentary” — her style has a natural feel but with an artistic, flattering touch. For Kasia a wedding is so much more than smiles and tears: she strives to capture details, colours and the overall feeling of the day. Read more…
Morning everyone! I’ve been crafting some gorgeous little hearts in recent weeks and they’re proving ever so popular on my calligraphy website so I wanted to show you too!
These cute and quirky heart place names are handwritten in my favourite script, and in white and pastel inks for a contemporary feel. I’ve been experimenting with adding little flowers, rustic twine and ribbons too. There’s a heart in my calligraphy studio for every style and occasion… and I’m offering free samples today!
For a free calligraphy heart sample all you need to do is email hello@Calligraphy-for-Weddings.com with your name, wedding date, style or colours and postal address.
Hearts are usually priced at £2.40 each but your sample will be totally free. Read more…
Whenever I see an English Asian wedding I wish I had more in my inbox to share with you — the elegance and wonderful colours are out of this world! And Dharmendra and Divya’s contemporary English wedding with an Asian twist is simply amazing. I jumped at the chance to share it with you as soon as I saw it!
The images are by my friend and blog sponsor the lovely Phil Drinkwater. Phil is a wedding photographer in Cheshire and Manchester, and I’d recommend him to anyone — he’s a lovely guy too. The photography in today’s Asian wedding blog is just beautiful — as is today’s bride Divya. Read more…

Creative wedding styling seems to be the big thing of 2013, with wedding magazines and top wedding blogs featuring quirky and interesting wedding props wherever I look. In 2012 and with vintage weddings everywhere the star performer was most definitely the vintage suitcase as table plan. Scuffed cases with Cath Kidston–esque interiors were strung up with cards for guest names by table. Surrounded by jam jars of flowers, little frames of old family photos and a vintage typewriter, the scuffed-suitcase-for-hire was the belle of every wedding ball.

I loved Anna and Craig’s Fawsley Hall wedding as soon as I saw it — and when they say ‘all things vintage’ they really mean it… there’s even a steam roller thrown in! Not to mention the family heirlooms as wedding decor. This is truly beautiful.
I also admire Anna and Craig’s approach to sourcing wedding suppliers. They sourced items locally and saved money that way, as well as working together with family and friends to make their own accessories for the big day. But most of all this is a beautiful wedding full of smiles and laughter, love and family. There’s mention of a giggling fit at the altar (love it!) in Anna’s wedding report which you’ll find at the end of the blog feature today. Read more…
Hello there lovely blog readers and I hope your Monday is going nicely so far. I have a truly beautiful wedding to begin this week with. Abi and Mikael chose to have their wedding outside, this time last year. They married in the charming village of Duncton, West Sussex, with an outdoor ceremony in the grounds of Duncton Village Hall.

Wedding photographer Paul Fletcher very kindly shared his images of the wedding with me for the English Wedding Blog. You can read his full wedding blog post with images here.
Abi and Mikael have written a great wedding report and reviewed some of their favourite wedding suppliers for you. I love their advice… particularly the bits about the dancing swan, the importance of hiring a good photographer, and remembering to eat the food! Read more…
Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely week. I’m working on a few little blog features for the weeks ahead and I’ve had to turn off the TV, avoid reading anything online or in magazines and steer pretty clear of wedding blogs and websites — as well as my inbox!
Is it me or do they look a tiny bit bored already?
Why? I’m all Great Gatsbied-out.
Art Deco is a wonderfully inspiring style. It doesn’t quite fit with my wedding calligraphy business, but the striking lines and impactful fonts make for amazing wedding stationery. The glitz and glam are to die for as far as wedding dresses and bridal accessories go. But I need to make a confession: it’s not really me. Read more…
Hello everyone! Can you help me with a ‘Flower Power’ feature on the English Wedding Blog? I’ve given it a quick mention on facebook and got some great ideas already, but the more the merrier!

Art deco has the potential to be a huge trend this year, and I’m thrilled today to be able to show you one of the UK’s very best collections of art deco wedding stationery. My lovely friend Nathan (of Artemis Stationery) is a bit of an expert on the subject and shares his recommendations for art deco stationery and styling with you here on the blog today. Enjoy!

Recently I wrote a bit about Art Deco and the 1920s, hopefully illustrating why I like the style of the period. But why is this relevant to weddings today? Although quite popular at the moment it’s a style you can use throughout the day to make your wedding a little bit unique from others which you may have been to. Also it’s not a strong theme such as demanding everyone dress up as Superheroes. Read more…
