If I could feature a non-traditional wedding like this every single day, I would! The joyful air of celebration, the colour, the smiles, the fun from the very beginning until the very last sparkler twinkles out… and the cutest pooches on the planet! It’s all here. It’s wedding blog heaven, right here, today, and it’s all for you! Gorgeous bride and groom Alicia and Dan married last summer and their festival wedding is EPIC. The photos speak for themselves – but keep scrolling to find out all about their day including some brilliant Fieldgood Bar wedding suppliers for you to jot down.

With love,

Vicky and Ali tied the knot on New Year’s Eve – and what a celebration it was! Black tie styling, glorious details, everything so wonderfully elegant and with a splash of wow factor to mark the occasion. [I’ve been saving this winter wedding to share with you as I thought we’d be into cooler times by now… but hey, heatwave!] Anyways, I hope this stunning NYE wedding gets you all excited for 2021… let’s face it, I think we’re all done with 2020, right?! Images are by Berkshire wedding photographer Simon Biffen Photography. Simon’s an English Wedding member, and it’s great to share Vicky & Ali’s glowing review with you! Scroll all the way through to read about all of Vicky and Ali’s favourite wedding suppliers, and to see Simon’s epic midnight confetti shot as the New Year came in!

Hey lovely wedding supplier friends – I hope you’re all hanging in there. I’ve been email-chatting with a few of you, I know things are really really tough right now. For those of you with weddings in the last few weeks – I’m so happy you’re back out there, doing what you love. For those of you waiting for 2021, I hear you. I don’t mention it much, as I know lovely Annabel has it covered. (And I recommend her Facebook group for suppliers, if anyone’s not already in there.) Anyways – much is happening here at English Wedding HQ. I’d like to think that as the blogger with a small wedding business I understand a little of how this is affecting everyone, on a personal level. (I’m still desperately trying to work out how to pivot…)

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re looking forward to the weekend… I know, I know – we’re a day ahead but it’s sunny and I’m feeling weekendy already! So here’s a little something to make you smile and share some of those imaginary Friday vibes I’m feeling a day early! Today’s feature is a beautiful shoot from English Wedding member Sigi Kirkpatrick Photography. The Stuart Parvin dresses are just fabulous (the one that features most is “New York State of Mind”. Every detail is glorious, from Print for Love‘s elegant stationery to the stunning creation by Nightingale Cakes – and Ruby and Grace‘s florals just bring it all together beautifully. Arrangements include Provence roses, peonies and hydrangeas, elderberry, olive branches and eucalyptus, allium, lisianthks and chocolate cosmos.

We’re all rethinking weddings right now I reckon. All the preconceptions of what a wedding “should” be are being flung out of windows and we’re downsizing while shifting the focus from colour palettes and decor onto family and the luxury of just being together. So as always, when a York Place Studios wedding comes along, I’m thrilled because that refreshing, different, glorious perspective shines brightly.

Rachael and Charlie were married way before lockdown was a thing. They tied the knot at One Friendly Place and chose London wedding photographers York Place Studios to capture their day. I love their wedding for being so family orientated, for being an amazing celebration without all the expectations that come with the word wedding (big white dress; formal dining, structured timelines and everyone behaving a little formally) – it’s a party for adults and kids to enjoy, where the bride isn’t above putting on a spiderman cape to play with her little batman. Oh, and my favourite picture? Zebra meets elephant. Keep scrolling!

When I get a credit for “Beer” in a couple’s list of favourite suppliers, I know to expect a pretty special wedding. (Tip: there’s no place for Carling at weddings!) – and Rachel & Shaun’s day lives up to expectations, flies past them in a blaze of beauty and leaves me wanting more. Their day was epic. They’re a gorgeous couple, the vibe of the entire day is joyful – the smiles never stop from bridal prep through to the evening spent crowdsurfing. I love these two. All images are by Midlands wedding photographer and English Wedding member J S Coates Wedding Photography, who gets a glowing review from our happy couple!

We looked through loads of different local photographers’ websites and eventually narrowed it down to three, who we then met up with to see if we clicked. Jonathan had such a great attitude, and his relaxed style was exactly what we were after.

Today’s wedding styled shoot needs no introduction from me other than to say you’ll want to stop everything (perhaps grab a lovely cup of camomile tea) and slow your scrolling. The images by Red Maple Photography speak for themselves; the florals and styling are divine, the dress fit for a goddess. This is internet-winning, breathtakingly beautiful stuff. I hope you love it as much as I do!

The inspiration for our photoshoot was romance. Being four women wedding suppliers, our love for romance and the romantic flair that comes from the quintessential countryside, we wanted to do a mini shoot that showcased our true passions.

I’ll let you into a little secret right now: the LAST photo from Claire & Senaka’s Cotswolds wedding is my favourite. The things Gloucestershire wedding photographer Martin Dabek can do with nighttime wedding photography just blow my mind! But before you get there, we have the loveliest wedding at one of our favourite barn venues to share with you today. Our gorgeous couple tied the knot on a September day (not this year!), styling their celebrations with botanical details, pretty signage and foliage. Claire’s dress with that adorable belt and lace detail is from Clifton Brides, and we love Senaka’s suit too (and that fabulous floral tie!) – all in all, the perfect elegant rustic wedding day.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We searched on the internet for photographers in Bristol and narrowed down a short list of ones who had quite a natural style. We met Martin first and booked him straight away, he was so friendly and relaxed we felt immediately at ease. We loved his photos especially the way he captured the little moments of the day.

Morning my lovelies! I have a STUNNER of a winter wedding to share with you today – I don’t think I’ve ever seen quite so many beaming smiles from a wedding we’ve featured on English Wedding. Mike and Khiley are ultra sophisticated, sexy and chic – their wedding is one of those knock-your-socks-off occasions full of joy and happiness. I have a feeling we’re going to leave you glowing for the rest of the day.

With love,

We found Oliver on Instagram & immediately fell in love with his style. Fun, documentary style shooting but full of personality.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Oliver was a total joy on the day. He felt like part of the wedding party. Everyone loved him… then the photos came back & they were more than I could have dreamed of. He caught the essence of our day totally!

Any groom who’s about to get married knows there are plenty of things that require his attention before the big day. From choosing your honeymoon destination to who’s going to make up your groom’s party, you’ve got some critical decisions to make. And that includes deciding what to wear.

Just like any trend, wedding styles are ever-changing – coming into, going out of and returning to fashion. This can make it tricky for a dapper groom-to-be to catch up with what’s in vogue at the moment. That’s why we’ve decided to make it easier for you and present this list of fashionable wedding trends to choose from.

Having looked at hundreds of suits and tuxedos from this year, from high fashion brands as well as regular stores, we’ve put together the ultimate list of style trends for grooms right now.

Are you fed up of being indoors and do you feel cheated that your wedding has been postponed and your honeymoon cancelled? Who could have predicted that something we can’t even see would ruin the plans of so many. Well, here’s an idea for when you feel safe enough to have a night or two away from home… Why not plan something really cool and elope? On the Isle of Skye, wedding photographer Penny Hardie sees all kinds of tiny weddings – they don’t even have to be legally binding, in fact many aren’t.

Ready to Run Away? Isle of Skye elopements... (6)

Can’t Wait?

Ok, so legally you need to fill in forms, register with the local registry office and all that. On Skye we see many couples who have decided to ditch the formalities and do their own thing. They may have a legal ceremony before they arrive or when they get back home, but they come to make their own commitment to each other in the wide open stunning scenery. They may have a hand fasting and tie the knot, they may jump over a broom together and some just exchange their own words. We get a whole lot of people who bring their wedding dress thousands of miles just to have their pictures taken here.
