Today’s gorgeous wedding blog is all about the story, and you’re about to share the very best moments from Helen and Rich’s best day ever. There are lots – because the party is what it’s all about.

Our gorgeous couple celebrated at the Boathouse Hotel, Trearddur Bay, in Anglesey. I do love the little details, and today’s wedding blog is no exception: the little boats, the cake, Helen’s stunning dress, the flowers… but I’ve also come to appreciate that top hats look best on the dancefloor, and that a massive part of any wedding story takes place after the sun goes down!

Abigail & Mark’s earthy, bohemian tipi wedding with Chocolate Chip Photography

Your Wednesday just got a whole lot more AMAZING… because we have the most beautiful boho wedding for you to get all inspired by this morning. I love everything – Abigail’s dress and her stunning plait, Mark’s super cool look (and his first dance story!), the flowers, the tipi, the wedding bake-off… and I very much think you will be as bowled over by this stunning wedding as I was!

“We aren’t a particularly traditional couple, so we knew from the off that a castle or a fancy hotel wasn’t for us. We knew we wanted a real earthy, bohemian feel so after seeing an advertisement on a magazine we just knew we had to have a tipi. Pitching it at our local cricket club was the ideal place.

“Over the year of planning, my initial earthy theme started to morph into a more Country Garden feel. I sourced some great watering cans and Mark painstakingly cut wood slices for my centerpieces. My florist then filled these with a beautiful arrangement of garden flowers.

Alex & Kirsty’s gorgeous East Bridgford Hall wedding, with Lumiere Photography

I know many of you will be planning your weddings around young families – I absolutely love a wedding full of kids, where little ones are a really important part of the day. They make for some amazing moments, laughs and smiles – and there’s nothing cuter than toddlers in their wedding best, is there?! Alex and Kirsty’s Nottinghamshire wedding is fabulous for three reasons: 1) they’re just gorgeous, both of them 2) the pretty styling and oh, those flowers! and 3) the little faces who make this day one to remember.

The wedding reception was at East Bridgford Hill, an exclusive boutique country house in Nottinghamshire. It has so much character, and don’t you just love the wall full of pictures and wedding hats? Such a fabulous idea! How many wedding venues have a Hat Bar?!

Gary & Natalie’s super gorgeous spring wedding in Cornwall, with Luna Photography

I adore Natalie and Gary’s seaside wedding in Cornwall- the portraits on the beach are fabulous, I adore the light and the setting – and Natalie’s bouquet is stunning! So colourful 🙂 I think you’ll LOVE this so grab a cuppa and enjoy…

Cornwall wedding on the English Wedding Blog with Luna Photography (29)

Natalie looks incredible in her wedding dress, and all the more so when you read her honest thoughts about dress shopping – I just LOVE the advice Natalie has shared in her English Wedding Blog interview.

I didn’t fall in love with my wedding dress until the day! All I can say is… What you think you want, probably won’t be what you go with! Be open to styles, trust those around you too. I must’ve tried on 70 dresses… I became dress blind… I was fed up… I was fussy…
It’s such a huuuuge thing, that every time I thought I’d found the one, I slept on it then hated it the next day. I was fixated on dresses with a high neck line, I didn’t want lots of detail and jewels, and I didn’t want to spend more than £1200…

Alex & Adam’s fabulously musical & literature themed London wedding, with Miki Photography

Real wedding Artisan London with Miki Photography (30)

Don’t you just love a really good book? For me it’s fantasy; although I love the nostalgia of childhood books and old Penguin & Ladybird classics. Today’s wedding is gorgeous for its literary theme – and Alex & Adam are the loveliest couple, I’ve been so excited to share their day with you! This is an amazing wedding. The venue is fabulous: I love discovering little secret, tucked away venues with a character and mind all of their own. And the couple are absolutely gorgeous – Alex’s dress is divine; Adam’s smile is superb!

Claire

Real wedding Artisan London with Miki Photography (39)

Alex is a Secondary school English teacher and the church was where the famous Victorian poets Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning were married beofre eloping to the continent. Therefore the reception was literary themed with book print bunting, books on tables as centre pieces and Penguin style book covers as the table plan. Name cards were Puffin Book cover postcards that were chosen to suit the guests. Adam is an opera singer and the music was heavily important so this was another theme for the ceremony and continued with the best man’s personal song/speech.
