It’s almost the weekend and we have another gorgeous wedding to share with you – this time, sent in by my lovely friends at The Little Paper Shop in Cheshire! I can’t introduce this blog post without plugging my modern calligraphy classes at this gorgeous wedding & paper boutique – it’s in Nantwich, and I’ll be there on the 7th of September for beginners modern calligraphy and brush pen lettering workshops – come and join me if you can!

Now as well as being the creative whirlwind and owner of The Little Paper Shop, Cara is a talented wedding photographer. She captured Liz and Andrew’s Shropshire wedding for them, and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

Liz is just beautiful in her Essense of Australia wedding gown, which she found at Shropshire Country Brides. Despite a few dress wobbles in the run up to the wedding, Liz stuck with her choice and we LOVE how beautifully this dress works on her – it was meant to be for this stunning bride!

Happy Monday lovelies! Did you have a nice weekend? We were in Manchester – had a lovely time at the folk festival on Thursday night, then shopped on Friday and met up with family, and I had a lovely calligraphy workshop on Saturday afternoon. Coming back into Cumbria was nice… it’s always such a relief to see the sea and mountains again after a trip away! My last calligraphy class this year will be on the 7th of December, and we’re going all festive with lovely ideas for gift tags, Christmas cards etc. Do join me – there’s more info here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/christmas-calligraphy-workshop-tickets-49871542125 and as always I’m looking for a wedding photographer to take beautiful pics of the class in return for a massive discount off the ticket price. Get in touch if you can help!

Pretty Norfolk DIY wedding at Binham memorial hall with Grace Elizabeth Photography (32)

We’re kicking off this week with a gorgeous wedding – all done on a really reasonable budget, but absolutely beautiful all the same! I just adore Jess’s dress – it’s from Monsoon and she looks fabulous, don’t you think? Bridesmaids’ dresses are from Dorothy Perkins, and Tom’s suit is from Next. Together they’re just so perfect – I hope you’ll love their day as much as I do! They were married at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s witnesses with a reception at Binham memorial hall. All the images of their day are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Grace Elizabeth.

The flowers are by Myrtle and Moss, with blush pinks and natural colours with lots of foliage and a long stream of ribbon which flowed perfectly when it was windy. Emily & Sue did such an amazing job of our flowers and we also had some gorgeous hair pieces. Our venue was a blank canvas. We decorated the ceiling with draped fairy lights which made it look so pretty.

Happy Friday folks! Do you have plans for the weekend? We’re off on adventures and I’m desperately hoping my back will hold out… turns out blogging is not the best for posture! I’m all achy and rattling full of ibuprofen this morning, yikes! But still… I can’t keep away from my desk as this gorgeous summer wedding is lightening my heart today. Beautiful bride Heather married Houw at Shustoke Barn on a sunny June day – their wedding is perfect for summer and I LOVE how full of colour the images are.

Jo at www.solihullweddingcreation.co.uk did our flowers, and they were perfect. A beautiful mix of colourful wild flowers. I was so happy with my bouquet and my bridesmaids’. My flower crown was just incredible. The button holes were awesome and the decorations throughout the barn were perfect, not too much and full of colour.

Our venue was a stunning converted barn with a church feel, huge windows and plenty of light. They had candles and fairy lights and indoor plants. We did hire a LOVE sign which gave it a beautiful touch.

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day, wherever you are. Do you still have sunshine? I think it’s deserted us here, which makes me even more happy to have a ton of beautiful weddings to share with you this month – and today’s is a dream.

Dreamy boho wedding at Houchins Farm with images by Kathryn Hopkins Photography (30)

Jen and Adam were married at Houchins Farm, Coggeshall, Essex. They’d originally planned to get married abroad but after spending the last two years traveling together they decided to come back to their roots to celebrate their marriage where they grew up, surrounded by close friends and family. Their wedding photographer was none other than our lovely friend Kathryn Hopkins (whose beautiful pics you’ll have seen gracing the front cover of the English Wedding Bible).

Jen was looking for a non traditional bohemian vibe, and found her dress whilst in Australia. On the day Kathryn mentioned that she looked like a woodland fairy, to which she responded delightedly ‘exactly the look I was going for’! Jen’s dress was Hollie, by Grace Loves Lace, Australia – https://graceloveslace.com.au

Gloriously eclectic and fun Soho wedding with Becky Harley Photography (33)

Chloe and Sam’s chic Soho wedding is wonderfully non-traditional. I love Chloe’s approach to wedding planning – she avoided the traditional suppliers and sought out more unusual things to style their day. The venue (The Union Club) is fabulous – the surroundings just seem to suit Sam and Chloe perfectly, and I think the shots of them just loving walking to the venue and in the surrounding area are unique and fascinating! Flowers are by Wild at Heart and Chloe’s dress is from Phase Eight – doesn’t she look incredible?

My wedding dress was sparkly, chic and classic and fitted so nicely. We found it on a high street bridal window shopping spree to generate inspiration and it turned out to be the one. It was also under budget, I initially set out for a different design, I really wanted a loose, boho type dress with long sleeves but couldn’t find any ready to wear ones that I liked. It’s from Phase Eight at John Lewis bridal in Oxford Street.

Matthew and Selina are both musicians, and took inspiration from music when styling their wedding. It’s a wonderfully glamorous day full of sequins and sparkle, with a laid back vibe. The bouquet is breathtaking – and don’ you just love Selina’s glorious hair colour?

“Our wedding style was all about boho glamour with geometric shapes. We took inspiration from our favourite colours, hobbies, styles and eras.
Music plays a huge role in our lives due to both being musicians who met on a music course at university, which is why the table names were the surnames of our favourite musicians. We were inspired by music, the 1920’s, boho hippie style, nature and geometric shapes (the latter due to Matthew’s scientific and mathematical side).

“We wanted to create something truly romantic and wild with a summery festival feel. Wild flowers were foraged locally, our table set up was an eclectic mix of vintage finds that we collectively pieced together from our own belongings – everything evolved really organically as we didn’t want anything too “done”.

I know: festival-esque isn’t even a word (even if I try and make it look like one by adding a hyphen). But it perfectly describes the wonderful spirit and sense of fun in today’s glorious barn wedding – and I know you’ll get it when you see the fabulous photos telling the story of Helena and Chris’s wedding day.

“Helena & Chris’s barn wedding had such a fun, relaxed vibe that the vibrant mix of personalities and friendships (and especially the VERY excited kids!) provided so many great collective moments throughout the day, not least as Chris’s amazing Reggae band ‘The Reggaelators’ rocked the house into the early hours until everyone was ready to grab a sleeping bag and hit their tents!”

I love the romance of an overseas elopement or a tiny, intimate wedding somewhere the evening sunshine will last forever, don’t you? Even better, al fresco dining on the beach and the views of stunning coastlines all around. I was so thrilled last summer when lovely destination wedding photographer Hannah Duffy asked if I’d like to send a little of my calligraphy to Ibiza in her suitcase. Of course I said yes…

This is the dreamiest shoot, with incredible light and the inescapable romance of a beach elopement. The bouquet is simple and pristine: hydrangeas in beautiful white catch the sunlight as our beautiful bride and groom gaze out to sea. With a stunning Truvelle gown and light suit for the warmest of summer weddings, our bride and groom are perfectly at home here; as newlyweds they celebrate at a tablescape of prettily coloured glassware and light, illustrated calligraphy table stationery.

If I ever have a wedding, I hope I’ll be able to describe the day as Maud does hers: “A beautiful, colourful day filled with love and madness.” In my world, this is everything a wedding should be! And Maud looks amazing, she and Andy both do. I jumped at the chance to share their day with you – the images capture the spirit and excitement of the day in such a magical way!

Amazing wedding party inspiration from Deepdale Farm with Kazooieloki (2)

There are two things I really love about this wedding: it’s all about love, family, friends, and laughter and having fun; and the attention to detail and the care that went into styling everything is outstanding. The colours, the flowers, the dress (custom made for our beautiful bride – I LOVE it!) This would be my perfect wedding.

Our venue needed loads of decoration, which was all done by us a few days before! Lots of make do and mend, old pillow cases and candles. No supplier would have been able to get it as right as my mum and dad did. Loads of family and friends helped the night before!

Today’s real wedding, my gorgeous blog-loving friends, is spectacular. If there was a bigger word for spectacular which included amazing, beautiful, creative, artisan, and elegant, I’d be using that word. But sometimes… beauty is too big for any word. Here’s our stunning bride, Jessica. She looks incredible, doesn’t she?!

Cornwall wedding venue Launcells Barton Travers & Brown Photography (21)

Jessica married Matthew at one of our favourite venues, the fabulous Launcells Barton in Cornwall.

Newly launched as a wedding venue, it’s fast becoming a wedding blog favourite (with features on Rock My Wedding, Boho Weddings and of course the English Wedding Blog).

A true labour of love, Launcells Barton was a major restoration project for owners Lara and Matthew, who have turned this place into a dream venue for all kinds of weddings. It’s welcoming, a little rustic and wonderfully boho, and Jessica & Matthew’s wedding made the very best of every little bit of such a fabulous venue.
