Happy Wednesday folks! Have you read the English Wedding Bible yet? Our article “why don’t men like weddings” is making me super aware of giving grooms a starring role in the weddings I share on the blog – how am I doing? Of course, handsome grooms like Charlie make it easy 🙂 And Vicky is just breathtakingly beautiful, don’t you think? Today’s wedding is as gorgeous as it is exciting. I adore the elegant and rustic styling, and I love the ideas Vicky and Charlie came up with – “wedding day TV” starring guest interviews, plus the groomsmen’s boy band montage… it sounds so funny and memorable for all the right reasons!

Liz and Richard’s day couldn’t have been more perfect for the English Wedding Bible, with their afternoon tea followed by a trip on a red vintage bus to the beautiful Great House at Sonning! My favourite shots of their day are on page 132 of our digital magazine, but I simply had to show you some more on the blog!

Liz’s dress – from the Willowby by Watters collection – is absolutely beautiful, and she suits it so perfectly as though it was made for her. Richard in his Reiss suit is just as gorgeous as his bride, and their little family makes this one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen recently.

I love today’s real wedding – Nicola and Paddy’s smiles are infectious and I ADORE the rich colour palette of the bridal bouquet. This is a day with chic styling elements and real style and elegance – I hope you adore it as much as I do!

Sally told me, “Nicola and Paddy were a really lovely couple to work with, really easy going and a joy to shoot for. They are so effortlessly natural & relaxed around each other & so clearly in love; it made it a pleasure to photograph them. After a busy season of summer weddings an autumnal wedding made for a nice change. Photographing Nicola & Paddy amongst the colours of the fall really gave this shoot a unique and warm feeling.

Jennie & Andy’s wedding is just so wonderfully bright and filled with the loveliest flowers – the long, wooden tables at Dorney Court look stunning – and our bride and groom are such a gorgeous couple – you will love this… I saved it for Sunday so there’s plenty of time for you to Pin away to your heart’s content! Enjoy.

“I had a clear idea on what I wanted for the flowers – colourful, wild and unstructured. We chose to use Siobhan (of La Belle Floral Designs) having seen the beautiful arrangements she made for my friend’s wedding. She tolerated my fussiness about the colour scheme (no purple!!) and let me choose specific bottles from her collection for our table displays. The flowers surpassed all our expectations – as well as choosing a stunning selection of flowers she used herbs in the table decorations and bouquets which gave off a beautiful scent. I would thoroughly recommend her!

Hey lovelies! How is all of your wedding planning going? Have you discovered Pinterest yet? One of my New Year resolutions was to pin more… I’m not sure I’m keeping up with my ambitions but I do so love Pinterest when I find time to visit – come & follow the English Wedding Blog’s boards here. And do, if you have a sec, pin some ideas from today’s fabulously creative wedding!! Nikki and Dan’s wedding is fab for its stationery which runs through the day and makes a real feature. I love the chalkboard table names, table plan and menus – the stationery (from Norma & Dorothy) ties the whole day together in such a lovely way!

Nikki and Dan were both buzzing with excitement- you could just see it radiating from Nikki. She truly was the definition of a beaming bride, I’m not sure I can find a moment that we photographed when she wasn’t giggling and smiling. Their friends and family were equally happy, it was a pleasure to be part of such a fun and romantic day.

Today you get to see one of the loveliest weddings to grace my inbox this year. The ideas are wonderful; the craftsmanship fabulous on so many levels. Gorgeous bride Emma made her own dress and corset – she looks amazing and I love her style! I love the flowers, the way the venue looks, the bar(!) – how cool does that look?! – and Peter and Emma are just perfect together.

Peter designed all our wedding stationery using the Adobe Creative Suite then had it printed through Printed.com. He did a fantastic job, it was very personal to us and very reasonably priced.

Today’s real wedding is stunning
 I do love a good tree. Gorgeous bride Claire and her husband Miles were married in Henley, with the River Thames as the backdrop for their day. The ceremony venue is pretty, welcoming and light. And they enjoyed a boat trip with a proper English pub in the background – pretty much everything about the wedding is perfect for a blog feature!

The staff were amazing and the beautiful sunny day made it even better, with guests enjoying drinks and canapes on the riverbank by the dock while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive back on the boat.

“The main theme of our wedding was to make it as personalised as possible to us. We love cycling, especially through mountain ranges and a lot of our friends share this with us too. So we had a tandem there and the theme ran through all the stationery too.

Hey lovely! I have a wonderfully special and pretty day to share with you this morning – I love the details of Charlotte and Andy’s wedding: the bouquet is stunning, I love her hair, and the whole day just looks like SO much fun! The lighting in the evening is really gorgeous too. It’s the perfect injection of life and vibrance and fun for our Thursday mornings!

“My bouquet was done by the amazing Lindsey from The White Horse Flower Company, it was rounded and had sweet peas, lilac and roses. It looked and smelt amazing and i had more tears when Lindsey bought it to me in the morning. The bridesmaids carried gypsophila and the flowers girls had gyposhilia flower crowns. We also had a large pedestal arrangement set up in the church which got moved after the ceremony to where we had the wedding breakfast, we also had pew ends.”

Melissa and Nathan’s big day is fab: a wonderful autumn wedding full of colour and fun. They celebrated at Wasing Park (Berkshire) – instantly recognisable for its Victorian summerhouse and that amazing mural. They both look fantastic: Melissa’s elegant bridal style is just fabulous. Her dress was the very first one she tried on, 16 months before the wedding, and she told me she loved wearing it on the day.

Today’s real wedding comes a little later than planned: I’ve been excitedly waiting to share this with you after its original publication on Juno & Joy. It’s a wonderfully light and pretty wedding from Windsor, with the most delicate florals and stunning portraits… and the most gorgeous and lovely couple you could meet.

Autumn weddings have something which warms me to my very heart every time. But Hannah and Rob’s Ufton Court wedding is so very special: the colours, styling and photography are just magical and I know you’re going to love reading about their day.

The flowers are amazing. Hannah told me “I didn’t really know what kind of flowers I wanted so I asked Lindsey [from The White Horse Flower Company] for something autumnal with mulberry and gold. The end result was amazing, and not only did they look great but they smelt incredible too.”

Our couple’s top tip for the day? Spot on: “Let somebody else take control. All of our suppliers had worked at our venue, and together, previously and they were fantastic in ensuring everything ran smoothly.”
