Danielle and Christian’s gorgeous DIY summer wedding, with Hannah K Photography

I’m smitten with Danielle and Christian’s wedding – their entire day is beautiful: from the tiniest details (the collar on Danielle’s dress; Christian’s buttonhole) to the big stuff; I adore ALL of the portraits of the two of them, and those amazing red leaves on the building opposite their venue… what a stunning collection of memories of a beautiful homespun English wedding!

My family were amazing and helped with quite a few things which saved us a lot. My nan made the invitations, place names and cupcake cases. My aunty made the cake and cupcakes. My uncle made the cake stand. The wooden box and hearts were bought on ebay for about £25, printed games were handmade by myself and my husband. The table plan I made myself.”

I had been to a couple of bridal shops and outlets and tried on some very beautiful dresses, but when I tried my dress on my mum cried and didn’t want to take it off, it was one of the easiest decisions I had made for our wedding. The service we received in the Bridal Rooms in Atherstone made it worth the extra cost, and they recommended a seamstress to do any alterations which was just round the corner from their shop. Also wonderful!”

Will and Nikki’s beautiful, rustic and laid back country wedding, with Samantha Pells Photography

Today’s real wedding is country charm and welcoming tipis – the loveliest rustic backdrop for a pretty, romantic wedding day. I love Nikki’s Claire Pettibone gown, her bouquet, and the party atmosphere the beautiful images capture at the reception. The tipis look amazing and I really hope you enjoy this wedding as much as I have!

“The tipis are so dramatic themselves full of fairy lights they don’t need a lot of extra decor – lots of family and friends helped and it was lovely to see the bits they had done. A friend made personal table names based on the horses we have at home, another produced our table plan and many pitched in the couple of days before. That was one of the loveliest parts of our wedding.”

Steve and Emma’s Deer Park wedding in Devon, with Jennifer Jane Photography

Emerald is my birthstone, and green has always been my favourite colour – as a nature lover I adore weddings with tons of green foliage and styling touches. Emma and Steve chose shades of green to style their day at the fabulous Deer Park Country House Hotel in Honiton, Devon. Their wedding is simple, elegant and understated – and the bride and groom are gorgeous.

Emma and Steve chose September for their wedding and were blessed with glorious blue skies and sunshine – just perfect for the Deer Park Country House Hotel, which boasts over 80 acres of wild flower meadows, woodland walks and manicured lawns for you and your guests to explore.

The colour scheme for the day was simple: green and white / ivory with thoughtful little touches dotted around the venue. Bouquets are traditional, with white roses the statement flower of the day. I really hope you love this wedding – it’s everything a wedding should be, and that all comes down to the beautiful bride and groom, and those wonderful smiles which last all day long. Claire

Kris and Laura’s gorgeous harvest festival wedding, with One Love Pictures

People ask me what I look for from a wedding submission for the blog…and this shot of a Laura’s bouquet is exactly the kind of image I LOVE… it sets the scene for one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen all year. Bride Laura is gorgeous, Kris is ever so handsome, and the images capture the spirit of the day from the ceremony through to the dancing at the end of the night – and with so many glorious details in between. I’m thrilled to feature Kris and Laura’s wedding on the English Wedding Blog

Tenterden harvest festival wedding blog by One Love Pictures (28)

We hadn’t really gone for a theme, we just wanted something quite informal (hence the non matching bridesmaid dresses). When I got my dress we worked the style and materials around that. Kris’s waistcoat had been worn by his step-dad at his wedding to Kris’s mum so we were thrilled to be offered that, and that helped set the colour scheme, and we live a very rural life in Wiltshire so it was natural to go for a sort of harvest festival feel with the wheat ears.

Jess and Rich’s cool London wedding with photography by Paul Rogers

It’s gorgeous Jess and Rich’s eclectic style which makes this London wedding so deliciously different and captivating. Their theme emerged as a heady mixture of romantic, prohibition, art deco and industrial… and their wedding is one of my favourite blog posts of the year already! With flowers by Rebel Rebel, a Charlie Brear gown and photos by Paul Rogers, you’ll LOVE Jess and Rich’s wedding style!

As amazing as this wedding looks, it’s inspiring to discover nearly everything was home made. Jess told me the crafting was “a labour of love but totally worth it!” There are some gorgeous home made touches: the wedding cake, table flowers, invitations, programs, table plan, table name cards, menus, cocktail menus, and even bathroom signs! “Trinity Buoy Wharf was a total blank canvas! We spent a full day on Friday the day before decorating it with props, flowers, setting up tables etc.” Jess’s sister made their fabulous naked cake – “it fitted the relaxed style of the wedding and looked fantastic!

Damien and James’s black tie wedding at Castle Howard, with Ally Byrom Photography

Today’s wedding is sublime. It’s timeless, sophisticated, and fuses contemporary styling with inspired nods to history and old English grandeur. Look closely for the tap shoes, admire the fabulous stationery (by my friends at Noble Fine Art), and join me in falling head over heels for this stunning Castle Howard wedding.

Castle Howard has the most beautiful exterior and interior. We had candelabras up the grand staircase and candelabras along the three long tables in the Long Gallery, not very often done at Castle Howard (where there are usually round tables).

For the evening party downstairs in the Grecian Hall we wanted a big contrast, which meant we had multi colours running up the pillars and large 5 Foot J&D, LOVE and MR & MR lights which made the rooms look incredible!”
