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.

Today’s wedding in Cornwall is too delicious for words – Catherine and Paul’s day is all about laughter and love, friends and family, and a fabulous celebration which has me smiling goofily at the screen… so very beautiful, heart and soul
They married at Mylor village in Cornwall, a beautiful location with character and charm. Their day was creative and pretty, and Catherine’s simple dress is just perfect – she looks amazing! Images of the day are by lovely Joseph Hall Photography. Do visit his website and find out more about his work – especially if you’re looking for a wedding photographer!
A naked cake covered with summer fruits and roses, a seasonal bouquet with the loveliest peonies and roses in a delicious mix of colours, and the most adorable bride and groom you’ll see today…
This is Kate and Jason’s wedding at The Mayfair Library in central London. The library has a quiet, romantic atmosphere and is perfect for an intimate wedding ceremony. The venue has a fantastic location within walking distance to many fine reception venues.

The moment I saw Hannah and Dean’s wedding photos I fell in love. Such an amazing couple, and such a beautiful day. Their Great Gatsby wedding at Kent’s Chilston Park Hotel is one of the most elegant celebrations I’ve seen, with fabulous styling and glorious details. But it’s the bride and groom – a stunning couple – who bowled me over. Hannah’s bridal look is more than gorgeous: her striking make up, her beautiful gown – she’s incredible. Although one comment on photographer Kerry Ann Duffy‘s facebook page made me chuckle: “Great pic, even better beard“… Dean’s look is fantastic and then some!
Hannah has written a great wedding report for us all today – full of brilliant advice, and wonderfully honest. She shares great budgeting tips, has an interesting story about dress shopping, and recommends some excellent Kent wedding suppliers. I love that she forgot to throw her bouquet… and was delighted that meant she could keep it! I would be too… it’s beautiful!
Jon and Claire were married in May, at a Derbyshire wedding venue I’ve never featured before – the lovely Newton House, set in a rural location not far from Burton upon Trent. The barn where Jon and Claire held their reception is wonderful – a blank canvas for a rustic or vintage wedding, which today’s bride and groom decorated to great effect!
All images are by lovely Simon Biffen Photography. Simon is a UK wedding photographer, based in Somerset and happy to travel throughout the UK to photograph weddings. Wherever you are, do check him out… I think he’s fabulous!
I’d be so excited if I received an invitation to a wedding at a venue called Finchcocks Musical Museum, wouldn’t you?! And what a stunning place it is – a fabulous choice for Gemma and Gordon’s beautiful wedding. Home to historical pianos, organs and music boxes(!) it’s a fascinating location and has beautiful gardens for wedding photos – and Gemma and Gordon made the most of these!

The neckline of Alicia’s wedding dress is just wonderful: on such a graceful and glamorous bride, this dress couldn’t be more perfect… and so sets the scene for today’s beautiful wedding blog. Alicia and Seb were married at Knowlton Court in Kent, celebrating their day with friends and family in the summer sunshine.
Images are by the very lovely Steven Dungate of Duntons Photography. Steven describes the day as ‘an epic wedding to photograph‘! and my goodness, isn’t it just… from the historic church to the deliciously decorated wedding venue, this is a wedding to inspire you in so many ways.
Alicia is an incredibly beautiful bride, and her wedding dress beyond exquisite. I adore the lace panel, the daringly low neckline and Alicia’s long, flowing skirt – and I’m so proud to be sharing her wedding to Seb on the English Wedding Blog today.
