Beautiful Jersey bridal style inspiration, with ballet and wedding photographer Dasa Wharton

How many of us, as little girls, dream of being a bride in a white dress and veil, and of being a ballerina on a stage? There’s a magic to both: a romance, a spirit of beautiful femininity – and it’s enchanting when both come together. Today’s styled shoot is from a wedding photographer whose other specialism is ballet photography. I hope you will love this as much as I do! The bouquet and dresses are sublime, just perfect for a romantic wedding day by the sea…

I specialise in dance and ballet photography and when not photographing ballerinas, my camera is focused on brides and wedding photography. I organised this styled bridal photoshoot to bring together a group of my friends, who are all running their own businesses and whose work I admire. I approached my favourite hotel in Jersey  – the Atlantic Hotel – and they were delighted to participate, so all was set and ready to go.

James & Rachel’s country inspired wedding at Coombe Trenchard, with Freckle Photography

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…

Real wedding at Coombe Trenchard Devon with Freckle Photography (20)

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!

Tori & Carl’s romantic Lulworth Castle wedding, with Jodie Cooling Photography

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 wedding style inspiration, with Shelby Ellis Photography

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.

Jo & Ed’s relaxed country farm wedding in Lincolnshire, with Avenue White Photography

Avenue White wedding photography on the English Wedding Blog (17)

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. Claire

“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!
