Hayley and Russell’s vibrant travel wedding in Aylesford, with Alison Wood Photography

Happy Monday everyone! Let’s begin the week with a vibrant bouquet from a lovely English wedding, shall we? Kent and Essex wedding photographer Alison Wood got in touch with me on Twitter when I shared my best real bouquets of 2014, and I loved Hayley’s bright colours and exciting textures.

Beautiful April colours in today’s Pembroke Lodge wedding blog, with Karen Flower Photography

How many of you are getting married this spring? The weeks seem to be flying by, and with the sunny days we’ve been having it almost feels like April is here already… so I thought it’d be a perfect day to share Fiona and Matthew’s wonderful April wedding blog with you. The gorgeous couple were married in Richmond, Surrey, and their Pembroke Lodge wedding is beautifully styled for springtime.

I adore Fiona’s lace dress (the back is just so beautiful, isn’t it… she’s such a stunning bride!) and the soft white and blue flowers are the perfect special touch for their day. Everything is captured beautifully by lovely Surrey wedding photographer Karen Flower – do visit her website (oh! and read the review Fiona and Matthew give her in their wedding report at the end of the blog – she comes very highly recommended indeed!) www.karenflowerphotography.com

Kirsty and Matt’s pretty English wedding at Pipewell Hall, Northamptonshire

Morning! I’m typing delicately this morning with a little plaster on my finger – I have an actual blogging injury from too much typing hehe!! But it won’t stop me bringing you today’s beautiful Northamptonshire wedding courtesy of another very beautiful bride, the lovely Kirsty and her gorgeous groom Matt. Their wedding at Pipewell Hall is full of ideas, lovingly crafted and as Kirsty herself will tell you, a dream wedding brought to life!

Watch out for gorgeous flowers, a fab sweetie table, cute table names and lots of DIY touches to inspire your own big day. With thanks to Kirsty and Matt (congratulations to you both!) and a big hug to say thanks to wedding photographer Georgi Mabee who just knew this wedding would be perfect for the English Wedding Blog. Enjoy!

Summery Chester Wedding….It all comes in threes…….

Hello there my lovely, I hope you’re having a happy day. I have a little treat for you courtesy of my friends and sponsors, the rather fabulous wedding photographers Peter and Sara – collectively known as Pixies in the Cellar. They’re sharing a gorgeous Chester wedding with you today, and one with three pretty memorable events. Interestingly, it’s not the first time this year I’ve heard of a vintage bus struggling with country roads… I went to a lovely wedding in August where the bus got stuck under a low bridge! Anyway – you’ll love this. Gorgeous images from Gemma and Martin’s beautiful Chester wedding. Enjoy! Claire xxx

Gemma & Martin and all their friends had decamped from Greater Manchester to the sunny skies and rambling walls of Chester for their perfect wedding day.

A sweet and dainty English garden wedding with a dash of Brazilian spice – Henry and Carina’s Derbyshire wedding

Morning lovely people! Wherever you are in the country this morning, please stay safe and warm. I’m thinking of all of you who in the south – we’ve escaped the gales up here in the Lakes but I know from my friends around London and Exeter it’s pretty scary down there. Anyway – I couldn’t resist sharing a few sneak peeks of Carina and Henry’s Derbyshire wedding a little while ago, and I’m over the moon to be able to begin this week on a high with such an amazing celebration. You’re going to adore this!

Derbyshire wedding photography Rik Pennington photographer (1)

The images are by my lovely new sponsor Rik Pennington Photography (more about him later!) and they are just wonderful. I really think they capture the atmosphere of today’s wedding and I’d love to hear from you today too – leave a comment for the gorgeous bride and groom, or for Rik or just say hi! The comments box at the end of the post is there especially for you and I love hearing from my wonderful readers.

A modern English castle wedding blog – Felicity and Matthew at Old Wardour Castle

Felicity and Matthew’s wedding is right up my street. It’s personal and intimate, stylish and full of smiles and laughter. And what could be more impressive than a real English castle wedding blog? I love this!

English castle wedding Alexis Jaworski (1)At first Matthew and Felicity only laughingly considered a castle wedding, and were delighted when they realised Old Wardour Castle was an affordable option – a fourteenth century, Grade 1 listed building where they could hold their wedding ceremony. It’s stunning – a unique venue with an impressive history (although the wiki fact which sticks in my mind is that it was in Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves. Shoot me now).

English castle wedding Alexis Jaworski (2)

Felicity is amazing – I love her short hair and she’s one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen wearing a David Fielden wedding dress. Matthew is her perfect partner, and looks gorgeous in his suit from Reiss. Do read their wedding report (below) for all the details and wedding suppliers from this Old Wardour Castle wedding, and also check out wedding photographer Alexis Jaworski. He supplied all of the images from this fab day – thanks Alexis!
