Jenny’s dress is by Chanticleer, and it’s beautiful. She’s a stunning bride and Louie’s her equally gorgeous other half. Don’t you just adore that flower crown?

The portraits from their day are some of my favourites: Ufton Court is a pretty special venue and one I’ve never featured before on the English Wedding Blog. I’m thrilled to be able to show you around it (virtually hehe) today!

Deciding not to have any particular theme, Louie and Jenny chose things they loved to add personality to their day: the Monopoly table plan is a highlight and the flowers are fabulous as well.

Today’s stunning bride Nicola wears a Galina Signature gown from David’s Bridal. She looks incredible with a navy sash belt and crystal hair accessory – and oh, those flowers… nothing provides texture more than fabulous blue thistles and berries, while the roses add glamour and anemones complete the romantic bouquet. LOVE!

I can tell Nicola and Adam were inspired by wedding blogs and Pinterest: the chalkboards (and hours learning how to get the lettering just perfect!), anenomes and attention to detail are ideas I love to share on the English Wedding Blog so this blog-inspired wedding is more than perfect!

Emma and Davide’s timeless, graceful Yorkshire teepee wedding, with My Love Story Photography

I love today’s wedding for its simple, understated elegance… that looks a million dollars and more. Davide and Emma were married in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside on a glorious sunny day and their wedding is more than perfect. Emma is the most graceful bride; Davide her perfect match. Their celebrations took place at their family home, under fabulous canvas… just look at the wonderful wedding teepees!!

A rustic, romantic and autumnal wedding in Lancashire, with Arusha’s Images Photography

Morning everyone! I have a fabulous wedding for you this morning – but first, quickly, any suppliers who’d like a May advertising spot please do email me! I have a couple more spaces to fill for next month and I’m looking for applications today :)

I loved the rich, vibrant colours of Katie and Damian’s Lancashire wedding as soon as I saw them – the rustic styling is beautifully done, and all of the DIY elements of today’s wedding are bound to inspire some of you!

Gorgeous bride Katie has shared some lovely tips on budgeting, crafting and planning their wedding day, and her advice is wonderful: “Stay true to you and your husband-to-be’s wishes as other people will certainly have their input in the matter but you have to do what you want as it’s your day. Savour every second as it truly does fly by and set a limit of meeting and greeting.”

A vintage emergency services styled wedding in Kent, with Sarah Wayte Photography

I love a wedding with a sense of humour, and Louise and Steve mix giggles (Cagney & Lacey?!) with gorgeousness (Louise & Steve!) beautifully. Their vintage emergency services wedding in Kent has the best transport I’ve seen yet: a 1960s police car and vintage red ambulance – the perfect way for a policeman and his paramedic bride to travel in style to their wedding!

There’s so much from today’s wedding I think is amazing… The handfasting ceremony (and that Louise and Steve kept the besom on display in their home for good luck); the lovely flowers, Louise’s sign for her Dad as they approached the aisle… and everything from the wonderful moments to the tiniest details was captured beautifully by Sarah Wayte Photography.

Louise told me they planned their budget carefully with a spreadsheet, and it paid off: “It was so satisfying paying the last supplier, we felt we could sit back and finally wait for the big day to arrive.” Together with their daughter Imogene they collected and crafted all of the lovely little details to pull together their wedding style, and the end result is just lovely!

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.
