Della & Aaron’s beautiful wedding at Charlton House, with LoveSeen Photography

Today’s wedding is just beautiful – I love it. The rain makes for a magical story behind the images, which are all the lovelier for it! Della and Aaron make such a gorgeous couple – she’s stunning, and her dress is fabulous. The portraits of the couple are sublime, the cake is something of a masterpiece… absolutely wonderful.

Our colour palette was very neutral, with tones of pale blush/pink/nude. We wanted our style to be simple and elegant with a slight vintage feel, but not too traditional. Our table names were areas/themes/classical artists of Florence (where Aaron proposed).”

Photographer Clare from LoveSeen remembers the weather very clearly – and I love how she embraced the challenge and came up with some amazing images! “It was relentless rain all day which was a shame as it was an otherwise sunny July. However, this made it more of a creative challenge for me and it was good to be able to put a smile on their faces and come up with some unique ways of showing their wedding.”

Shot on a beautifully sunny day in June, this & the locations made for a quintessentially English wedding, all the more unusual because Jennifer is from the US. The clash of cultures was what made it memorable as we had celebrations & ceremonies from each country.

Stoke Place is a wonderful venue, bright & airy, the light is fantastic for me as a photographer. The gardens made it easy to have everyone outside, but also have enough space to take Jennifer & Marcus off for some photos of the two of them without everyone else being able to see us. Isabel Smith’s wedding planning made for a very smooth day as she coordinated with Stoke Place.

Angela and Aaron’s white and gold winter wedding with Camilla J. Hards

Subtle colours and your own personal style are all you need to make your wedding perfectly, beautifully YOU – and today’s gorgeous bride and groom show us just how it’s done. Their day is elegant, with touches of glamour and timeless charm – and it’s as full of love and laughter as can be.

Styling is subtle and sophisticated: the flowers use green foliage and white ranunculus.We decorated the tables ourselves with long vases with ranunculus and gold and ivory petals scattered around.”

I asked the happy couple what one piece of advice they’d give to readers of the English Wedding Blog: “Always look at your watch, as it makes the time go slower!  Don’t get chatting to people for too long; you’re there to party too!”

Conceptual Elegance: nature’s beauty & urban backdrops for a sublime modern wedding style

Wedding style inspiration UK Nina Marika and Jess Petrie Photography on the English Wedding Blog (49)

Wedding cake designed by Amy Swann

You know when nature creeps into the cracks of a wall on an old industrial site…? I love that. Life prevails. Beauty wins, and today we show a transformation which will turn your wedding venue world on its head. You really can be married anywhere. I almost wonder if an abandoned warehouse space could become a more beautiful location than a stately home? After all, we’ve kind of done village halls now… Claire

Flowers by the fabulous Swallows & Damsons

The magic is in the contrast. An urban, industrial backdrop filled with handcrafted and botanical details: handwritten calligraphy, botanical illustration, a delicately crafted and stunning wedding cake. There are feather garlands to soften and add texture and hand cut paper flowers for a chic, modern DIY look. Dresses are by the one and only Claire Pettibone, styling is by Sheffield’s gorgeous Nina Marika, and the sublime images are courtesy of lovely Jess Petrie.

Nicola and Gary’s vintage-inspired wedding at Streamcombe Farm, with Jade Nott Photography

Today’s wedding is so, so perfect… it’s full of laughter and love, with the loveliest styling and decor… and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. I can’t think of a better way to begin our week, can you?!

Somerset wedding blog Jade Nott Photography (27)

The flowers are by Kate at Windmill Farm Flowers. Nicola told me they were “the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. So perfect and effective.” The naked cake fitted the wedding style so well – and the decoration is fabulous. It was made by the Exclusive Cake Company, Dulverton.

The styling of the venue involved family and friends: “My Maid of Honour made us some beautiful bunting which we hung in the Barn. we made the venue look our own which was really important. The Groom and his groomsmen were amazing and did alot of the dressing of the venue which I loved.” 

Somerset wedding blog Jade Nott Photography (21)

“We did homemade confetti which all of my beautiful bridemaids helped with. We put them into personalised bags. it was lovely. We had homemade bunting, and sweetbags and the favours were biscuits with tea!”

Betty & Phil’s day stood out from others I covered last year as it seemed to be very simple in its delivery. The bride, the details, the location – all very classic, chic and English garden themed. From the Sassi Holford dress, to the idyllic thatched cottage B&B venue at the foothill of St Catherines chapel. The weather was perfect, the scene was stunning and the spirit of the couple and the people topped it all off.
