New event added!! For those of you who missed the event in July, the Bodleian Library is hosting a new event – Bodleian In Bloom – on the 24th of February 2018. Please visit https://www.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/whatson/venue-hire/weddings-and-civil-partnerships for more information.

Few wedding venues are as impressive as English Wedding Directory member The Bodleian Libraries. One of the oldest libraries in Europe, in the romantic and historic city of Oxford – it’s a bookworm’s dream wedding venue. I would LOVE to be married here – and if you haven’t booked your wedding venue I have a great opportunity to share with you today!

What will your statement be at your wedding… perhaps a stunning bouquet, or fabulous centrepieces? How about a gorgeous wedding cake?

It’s every bride and groom’s worst nightmare – a last minute crisis when a supplier you’ve had your heart set on suddenly can’t be there for your wedding.

As a supplier myself, I totally get it. I also know those last few weeks before your wedding are busy, stressful and the LAST thing you need is to be let down by one of your suppliers.

All is not lost.

There are things you can do, and ways of handling the situation:

I wanted to share a really pretty wedding with you all today – something elegant and graceful, with a wonderful sense of English charm and tranquility – and I couldn’t think of a lovelier wedding than Christie and Ben’s day. Christie is so very beautiful – a Devon bride whose timeless style reminds me of Audrey Hepburn – with Ben her perfectly handsome leading man. They married at Symondsbury Tithe Barn and chose lovely Linus Moran Photography to capture their day.

There’s something about an elopement – the romance of it all just gets me, every time! Nick and Kristina’s love just shines from the photos of their special day. There’s no nerves, none of the formality or embarrassment that being in front of a big crowd of people can sometimes bring. These two lovely people are joyful, blissfully happy from the moment we first see them – and yes, it makes me want to elope, right now, to Gretna Green!
