With human damage to the environment increasingly under the microscope, more and more couples are planning eco-friendly weddings in a bid to cut down their carbon footprint, and it’s not hard to see why.

According to the Green Bride Guide, the average wedding can rack up a massive 400lbs of waste and a frightening 63 tonnes of CO2 – the same amount that five people would produce in an entire year!

This one’s for all the wedding photographers, stylists, and creative suppliers out there! I’ve had so many beautiful submissions lately, and I’m really happy to have had submissions from photographers who’ve told me it’s their first time submitting to a wedding blog, or that they’ve never been featured before. Which absolutely makes my world go around!

At this time of year we get sooo many submissions, and some I’ve had to politely decline… but I always try to give a reason when I do. So I figured, perhaps it would be helpful to share some tips to help you get featured on English Wedding, and hopefully after that on other top wedding blogs as well!

See Phoebe & Ed’s gorgeous Childerley Hall wedding in our archives!

Strutting the aisle like a Hollywood red carpet with thousands of eyes fixed on you is some couples’ idea of Heaven – but don’t worry if this sounds more like wandering through the fiery pits of Hell to you! Everyone deserves to be loved, and everyone deserves the chance to express that love in their own way. If you’re more of a privacy-appreciating introvert than an attention-loving extrovert, you might be dreading the prospect of sharing your innermost feelings of love in front of a roomful of people – only to then have to keep them all entertained for the rest of the evening.

It’s no secret that your wedding venue is one of the most fundamental aspects of your special day. We all have our dream venue, yet finding the one that ticks off all the boxes can be a challenge. 

However, there is nothing more quintessentially British than a countryside manor house. 

There are hundreds of amazing manor houses in the UK, and our friends at Delamere Manor are here to share with you some of the benefits of choosing a countryside manor house for your wedding.
