A charming and laid back English garden party wedding in Kent, with Schryver Photography

Happy April everyone! Soon we’ll be enjoying warm summer days, sunny evenings and glorious outdoor living again – yay! I’m looking for lots of summer weddings to feature on the English Wedding Blog so tell your friends and suppliers to get those submissions rolling in! For today though… a wonderfully relaxed wedding in England’s very own garden county. Lianne and Neil married in Kent and styled their wedding around a garden party theme. It’s beautiful!

Alex and Nina’s romantic English garden wedding in Chelmsford, with Terri Pashley Photography

A fabulous snippet of advice from today’s couple: “We did as much as we could ourselves and kept things as simple as possible so that we could spend more on the things we knew we would be able to keep forever.”… and one of the best tips I’ve heard in my years as a wedding blogger. Nina and Alex are officially awesome! Oh, and they’re a beautiful couple too…

Once again The Wedding Shop in Colchester gets a great review on the blog – and when you see how amazing Nina looks it’s obvious why! (I love reading great things about wedding suppliers, it makes me so happy for our little industry!) She accessorised with her Grandmother’s pearls wrapped around her wrist, and champagne satin peep toe shoes by Karen Millen… and she looks so elegant and beautiful.

Another fantastic idea for other couples is Alex’s speech: he didn’t want to stand up and make a speech (and I’m totally in agreement that you shouldn’t do anything you won’t look forward to on the day!) so he made a video which went down a storm with guests… and meant he could relax and enjoy it too.

A beautiful Rookery Hall wedding with rustic details, from David Walters Photography

I can imagine today’s beautiful bride and gorgeous groom hand-delivering invites on their bicycles… probably because of the charming, quirky bicycle table plan and their thrifty tips for saving on postage! Danielle and Danny are fantastic: full of ideas and inspiring advice, and I know you’ll adore their wedding.

The venue is Cheshire’s fabulous Rookery Hall; the images are by Liverpool wedding photographer David Walters. Highlights of today’s real wedding include a divine bouquet with hydrangeas and lots of lush greenery. I adore the portrait images in the grounds of Rookery Hall and the rustic touches Danny and Danielle added to personalise the venue.

A modern DIY wedding in Berkshire, with Hannah McClune Photography

Campervans are the best wedding transport, I think! I adore Chrissy and Peter’s wedding because they travelled in style… and their entire day is so personal and creative. Chrissy told me it’s great to think creatively about the little details: when buying name tags, for example, just buy what you really like – even if it doesn’t say ‘wedding’ on the box!

Real wedding in Berkshire with images by Hannah McClune on the English Wedding Blog (12)

Their Berkshire wedding is just lovely, and this stylish and gorgeous couple have so many brilliant ideas to share. I adore their pastel colour combinations – and the flowers are out of this world. Chrissy “wanted them to look like they had been picked like when you go for a walk! A bit rustic and natural” and Kaye Stallwood made her perfect bouquet, which I love!

Lara and Andrew’s stunning theatre wedding in Yorkshire, with Tierney Photography

I’m totally lost for where to start with today’s gorgeous theatre wedding… there’s so much to show you and so many things I’d like to say I LOVE…

Yorkshire wedding Lyceum theatre and crucible with Tierney Photography (14)

Lara and Andrew got married in Sheffield on a bit of a venue-hopping-spree complete with vintage bus. Their images from the Lyceum theatre bowled me over, and then I saw the Crucible photos, and pics of the bus, and well… I was hooked.

Yorkshire wedding Lyceum theatre and crucible with Tierney Photography (26)

Lara is that knock-me-down-with-a-feather kind of beautiful and Andrew just looks super handsome. Their colours are inspiring for a winter wedding: bright yellows and blues give the kind of colour pop which really makes a contemporary wedding.

Hello there beautiful blog readers. How has your week been? I’ve had the loveliest time writing the English Wedding Blog this week, and with submissions from some of my favourite photographers waiting in the wings, I know April is going to be an amazing month too. For today though, I have a very special sneak peek for you as top British bridal designer Sassi Holford unveils her 2015 Savoy Collection. The gowns are divine, combining delicate European fabrics, imaginative beaded florals and romantic embroidery for soft impact and femininity. These beautiful designer wedding dresses are individually handmade to order in Somerset, and exclusive to Sassi Holford London.
