If I could take a polaroid of every bouquet we feature on the English Wedding Blog, and paper my little office & studio space with all of them it would just be soooo beautiful. Sometimes a gorgeous wedding inspires you to dream crazy things… but that’s ok, and I know we’re going to inspire you with some lovely ideas today. The flowers are only the beginning of this stunning day…

We wanted a wedding with a hint of vintage and a spring country feel. Most suppliers were recommended by Coombe Trenchard (marquee company, caterers, mobile bar). The band we sourced from Alive Network and Emma @ Freckle Photography was found by some extensive internet searching as photography was extremely important for us to get right! See more...

I love today’s real wedding blog – the peonies, the lens flare, the castle… the details are simple but the overall look is so elegant and beautiful. And Lulworth Castle is fabulous… the interior is perfectly imperfect and would lend itself to a modern, almost urban wedding style as gracefully as it does to today’s wonderfully feminine & romantic theme…
“The wedding flowers were pink peonies, gypsophilia, all very pretty and pink! We went for tall table arrangements at the castle as it helped to draw the eye upwards into the beautiful building. Our florist was Christine Browne of Floral Arts in Weymouth, she knows the castle inside out so knew what would work. Pink peonies were really my only request and although we discussed it all, we left it to her to do a great job for us. Trust them – they know what works!”

Autumn is well and truly here, and it’s time for snuggly jumpers, cosy fires, slipper socks and hot chocolate… and the loveliest wedding inspiration shoots you can imagine. Here’s one of our first of the season… it’s time to snuggle up with your favourite UK wedding blog, breathe in the fabulous colours and get inspired for your wedding…
I adore the colourful styling of today’s shoot: the bright flower crown with pops of red roses and the display ideas with splashes of yellow amongst a late summer green foliage. Apples are a key feature in so many autumn wedding styles, and here they add even more colour and texture to the design. Use these ideas for your wedding tables and display areas – or pop place name tags onto apples for a cute place setting idea!

It was a cold and wet autumn morning at a muddy Knole Park in Sevenoaks, but our models for the day Chantelle & Billy (a real couple!) were absolutely fantastic and powered through. See more...

I love Jo and Ed’s wedding for its elegant, relaxed styling and the timelessly beautiful images – they married in late spring and chose seasonal flowers alongside the loveliest little touches to flavour their day. The ceremony at Doddington Hall is incredible: the reception full of country charm. I love their homemade honey favours (their own bees… how lovely is that?!) and the pretty florals used throughout the day.
“We hired the ‘Long Gallery’ at Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire, a beautiful room with huge paintings and a grand piano. It needed little decoration as its splendour spoke for itself. The room held 200 guests and created a long isle. We had a drinks reception in the coach house next to the main hall with an acoustic band within the walled gardens. Our reception was held at the family ostrich farm in Nottinghamshire, 20 minutes from Doddington Hall.

The details of the day are breathtaking. The peonies in those fabulous bouquets look good enough to eat! The hydrangea / delphinium / English country garden table arrangements are so, so pretty – perfect for an early summer wedding. And I LOVE the naked chocolate strawberry cake… it looks lush!

The summer months are always, always (based on the last 13 years!) fraught with last minute wedding stationery orders. I’ve heard every excuse under the sun, ranging from ‘we forgot to order XYZ’, ‘we thought we had more time’, and my all time personal favourite ‘ I didn’t know I needed it, until I saw it, now I have to have it….please say you can do it, wedding is in 2 weeks’
I received an email from Rosie and Tim in August.
“We would be interested in ordering a table plan for our wedding from you (your designs look wonderful!) but as you’ll have seen we have left this until the last minute, with the wedding now less than 2 weeks away! Is there any chance you would be able to turn around a design that quickly? Provisionally we like the look of your places in London design but could happily settle for a simpler design if that was easier in the timeframe we’ve got! Happy to discuss further by phone or email when you have a moment. We look forward to hearing from you! Thanks, Rosie” See more...
