My calligraphyHello! I'm Claire and I write the English wedding blog - an independent blog for brides and grooms.
The English Wedding Blog is all about creativity: my dream is to curate an online space for couples to get inspired by real weddings, shoots and the latest in wedding design - with a real focus on English and UK weddings and suppliers.
I'm also known for writing calligraphy - for my work with Kirstie Allsopp and because I've worked with hundreds of brides and grooms. Beautiful writing is my passion and I'm happiest with a pen in my hand and ink on my face!
I live on the edge of the English Lake District, a couple of minutes from the seaside. I've lived in France and Italy, I ride a Vespa, I'm a cat person and I love rock music, walking in the mountains, and my beach.

They had a blank canvas – literally – for their marquee reception and styled the space with lots of vintage details: gorgeous flowers, antique keys and a Choccywoccydoodah cake. Jessica’s stunning bouquet is by the fabulous Pumpkin & Pye, the other decorations were homemade.
There are plenty of ideas here for other DIY brides – and it’s thanks to lovely Liz Greenhalgh Photography we can share them here today. Do check out Liz’s website:
Liz says, “No detail had been missed. The marquee was just stunning, flowers adorned tables and centrepieces at every turn. The garden was immaculate and full of more vintage loveliness… ” So shall we have a proper look? It’s beautiful – you’ll love it.

I can’t imagine how exciting it must feel for winter brides and grooms as the leaves start falling from the trees… the first frost instantly reminds me of snow and cosy nights in… and winter weddings. Today I wanted to share a really beautiful wedding from Buxted Park: Fiona and Mark styled a winter wonderland wedding at this gorgeous venue and I’m delighted to be able to share all of their fabulous images with you today.
Thanks to Kerry Ann Duffy for sharing the photographs of Mark and Fiona’s day with us on the English Wedding Blog. You can see more of Kerry’s photographs here – do have a look. (Fiona was so pleased with her photos she recommended Kerry to her sister and friends, who have booked her for their weddings!)

Howling Basset was the Kent wedding photographer for Katie and Aaron’s lovely country wedding. They were married at St Peter & St Paul’s Church in Borden and then over to the delightful Frasers Coldharbour Farm for the reception. It was important to them that all the suppliers used and decorations etc were sourced within the UK. The boys’ suits were especially cool; Aaron wanted tweed but with a summer wedding it’s just too heavy a material so after scouring the country he found a bespoke tailor in Walsall to make their suits. Very dapper indeed.
Katie and Aaron had a beautiful woodland engagement shoot last year – you can click here to see some of their engagement photos but for today I hope you’ll enjoy this perfect eco friendly Kent wedding!

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.
Happily when I asked Alison if I could blog the wedding she said yes! If you’re looking for a wedding photographer near Kent or Essex do look her up:
So here we have a wonderfully bright beginning to the week – perfect for a Monday morning! Enjoy.
I asked Alison to tell me a little about their day:
“Hayley and Russell met at Aston university and after 10 years together they got married last September. Hayley is from Wales and Russell from Hastings.
Beautiful country romance and flowers to die for! Roseanne and Darren at Cripps Barn by John Hope Photography
Hello! Did anyone see June coming?! No? Me neither… I’m still on May! But it’s officially summer and wedding season is in full swing – so let’s begin the week with one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen: Roseanne and Darren at Cripps Barn.
The gorgeous couple didn’t focus on a colour scheme but as their plans developed they chose details in soft blues and greens. The wedding stands out for the spectacular floral decorations – Roseanne’s bouquet is amazing and the ceremony flowers are fabulous.
Images of their day are by Leeds Wedding Photographer John Hope – a wedding blog favourite who comes very highly recommended!
I hope you love their wedding as much as I do – it’s wonderful and full of ideas. My top tip inspired by today’s couple? Choose a focal point: whether it’s flowers, accessories or stationery and turn that focal point into a real statement to give your wedding a real wow factor. Enjoy!
Hello everyone! I promised you a real wedding yesterday and I’m so pleased it’s this one… gorgeous Natasha and Amit were married at Longleat in Wiltshire in September. Their ceremony was in the stunning orangery at Longleat – a beautiful setting with murals and wonderful light for the romantic occasion.
They opted for a vintage world travel theme with table names and accessories, and Natasha’s bridesmaids wore accents of teal while the bride carried a bouquet of hot pink gerberas. All in all it’s a beautiful wedding with plenty of ideas and one I’ve been excited to show you!
Huge thanks to lovely Joseph Hall Photography for the feature. Do visit his website and find out more about his work – especially if you’re looking for a Wiltshire wedding photographer!
