New discoveries from the English Wedding Directory!

Published by Claire Gould on

I’m a matchmaker. The best definition for what I do is that I introduce you lovely people planning your weddings to the most amazing photographers, suppliers and creatives I know. And I know a LOT of those – the English Wedding Blog has been around since 2009! So by sharing beautiful weddings, asking our featured brides and grooms to share their recommendations on every blog post, and keeping in touch with suppliers all around the UK, I can make sure you’re seeing the very best the English wedding industry has to offer. The English Wedding Directory is where you can find all of our favourite wedding suppliers, and is full of brilliant photographers, stationers, florists, stylists, designers… everything you might need for the wedding of your dreams!

These lovely people have joined the English Wedding Directory in the last month or so. Do take a moment to discover them, and if you like what you see why not get in touch and even book this weekend?

In all relationships there is a heartfelt and intense connection that is utterly unique to you, and I promise I can capture it, if you want me to.
