English country wedding styling ideas with a rural twist from Hannah Buckland Photography (21)

The inspiration for this Quintessential Cotswold Country shoot came from photographer Hannah’s life in the Gloucestershire countryside. A country girl at heart she finds every opportunity to incorporate rural life through the seasons into her wedding and portrait photography. The rich tones of burgundy and on-trend mustard yellow are the perfect palette for a winter wedding; and pair beautifully with tweed for a rustic, textural feel.

The setting of a local farm provided a scenic country backdrop, with stunning lakes, orchards and woodlands. The shoot was bathed in winter sunlight; showing that winter weddings don’t have to be confined indoors. For Hannah, capturing couples’ character and personality is first and foremost the most important part of any wedding portraits.

Hey everyone! Today we have a really contemporary and romantic wedding look to share with you – with beautiful images from Kingsdown Rectory in Kent. The look of the day brings rustic and natural elements together in an elegant and refined way which I LOVE – and oh, that dress though?! It’s all so perfect, I hope you’ll agree!

This organic, pared back shoot was planned and styled by lovely Laura Jayne at Your Wedding, Your Way and photographed by Kate Hennessy Photography. It’s the most glorious inspiration for couples planning a relaxed and elegant wedding in a homely setting where they have freedom to create their own style. “With the outdoor elements, we wanted to portray the flexibility and scope of the space. The tablescape was designed to demonstrate how to mix the rustic look with elegant details to create a neutral, considered setting with natural elements. The shoot team consisted of mainly Kent based suppliers in this brand new, recently launched venue. Our gorgeous models’ smiles shone throughout the day and have created some stunning images, we hope you agree!

I still love styled shoots – they’re fabulous for first glimpses of inspiration and ideas which will gradually make their way into real couples’ weddings on blogs and in magazines. I publish plenty: I send my calligraphy out to a select few. But when Krysta (For the Love of Weddings) asks for stationery or calligraphy I know the shoot will be insanely beautiful, and I jump at the chance to take part!

Working with my beautiful friend Amy Swann makes the process even more enjoyable. Since 2017 we’ve been making wedding invitations for luxury and intimate weddings all over the world. Amy’s illustrations are the perfect accompaniment to romantic, organic calligraphy lettering, and a creative brief from a client like Krysta is so exciting to work with!

Today’s shoot happened at Garthmyl Hall and was beautifully captured by Rebecca Goddard Photography. Planning and styling was by For the Love of Weddings with concept & design by Style & Bloom. The flowers take centre stage – Pheasant Botanica‘s work is always stunning! Our model wears bridal wear by Sienna Von Hildemar with jewellery by Glitzy Secrets. Hair was styled by Tabitha with makeup by Victoria Jones.

A lot of you lovely couples are choosing very classic, elegant styling touches this year, so when this fabulous shoot landed on my desk I knew instantly you’d love it! This is timeless and beautiful, luxurious but not opulent – and achievable for those of you looking for modern elegance with beautiful details. The venue is Hothorpe Hall, and the styling is by Natalie at Beautiful Arches. All images are by lovely Kathryn Edwards Photography.

“The idea behind the shoot was to show a classic and elegant wedding; an achievable fairy-tale for those brides who dream of looking like a princess on their big day. I purposely didn’t want it to be too trend-led, so it’s quite timeless and classic with a simple colour scheme of white and gold, with just a touch of sparkle. It also features some beautiful details to show how you can bring a luxurious feel to your big day with little touches like monogrammed linen, a ceremony arch, and a nicely framed cake table.”

This dreamy editorial captures hazy Italian days in the most beautiful way. Imagine it’s summertime and you’re miles away from anywhere in the Italian countryside, with a villa of your own for the week of your wedding day – and everything is simply perfect. I adore the lush bouquet by Shining Flowers, the dreamy tablescape by Elisabetta Carraretto and the wonderfully floaty gown by the fabulous Jurgita Bridal.

It’s all captured beautifully by Sonya Lalla Photography, a Tuscany, Florence and Rome destination elopement photographer. Sonya is known for her romantic and delicate photographic style, and got in touch with me a little while ago to ask for some calligraphy pieces for this shoot.

Knowing Sonya’s stunning photographic style, I was delighted to oblige! I created a relaxed invitation suite for an Italian destination wedding, featuring a simple olive branch illustration and watercolour image of the duomo in Florence. The ink I used was handmade, in a soft olive grey, and written on torn edge watercolour paper. I love these images to bits, and they fit so beautifully with the overall styling of the shoot.

Happy Sunday, beautiful! How’s your weekend going? I forgot to tell you – we spent last night at The Wordsworth in Grasmere, a gorgeous spot for a wedding – so waking up this morning was absolute bliss! I’ll tell you all about it later in the week 🙂 For today though, something VERY special. We’ve been chatting to the wedding & events team at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford recently – it’s a breathtaking and wonderfully unique wedding venue with a stunning balance of contemporary architecture and historic backdrops – half a million years of art and history, to be precise! Today we’re sharing a bridal photoshoot at the Ashmolean, so you can see the place for yourselves… isn’t it incredible?!

The Ashmolean is a rich treasure house. Grand, sweeping staircases and priceless paintings offer a wealth of unique opportunities for photoshoots. Traditional flower arrangements coupled with contemporary bridal wear – a combination of old and new – embodies the breadth of the Ashmolean’s spaces.

Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.

Images are by our lovely friend and sponsor Amanda Karen Photography, with a fabulous team of creative London wedding suppliers at Clissold House in Hackney, London.

So happy Valentine’s Day to you!! I hope whatever your plans, you’re feeling loved and blessed this morning. I’m getting ready for a really special friend’s wedding tomorrow and I can’t wait!! So I think we’re doing all our Valentine’s Day stuff on the 15th… we’ll miss the rush in the restaurants and have a wonderfully cosy meal!

I had to save up something really special for the blog on Valentine’s Day of course. This is a breathtakingly beautiful bridal shoot, loosely based around a romantic ‘French style chateau’ in the New Forest, Hampshire. Thank you to lovely Frances Moore for sharing it with us – if we weren’t all feeling loved up already, oh my goodness am I in the mood for a little romance now!

Have the most wonderful day everyone!

Charlotte Wise Photography & Frances Moore teamed up to create this beautiful French inspired bridal editorial. The look is elegant and feminine, using soft blue, white and grey to keep the styling timeless. Charlotte’s images are naturally light and feminine, with a relaxed and romantic style I absolutely adore. Her fine art photography style is perfectly suited to Hale Park.

It hardly feels like a full 18 months has passed since I discovered Clare Lloyd‘s exquisite handcrafted bridal jewellery. I’d planned a photoshoot in the Lake District, and seen her pieces online… but when they arrived with the postman I was more than blown away. To have the talent, the patience! to create such intricate jewellery must be a dream. To wear a single one of Clare’s stunningly crafted accessories on your wedding day will, I promise, make you feel amazing.

Unique wedding accessories and jewellery by Clare Lloyd in Somerset (34)

Clare Lloyd‘s collections are constantly evolving, taking on different natural hues and incorporating shapes and shades from nature. They’re always incredibly beautiful, and there’s always something new to see on Clare’s Instagram to take your breath away. These aren’t just bridal accessories to be worn on the day and forgotten: they’re future heirlooms, artisan pieces of handcrafted jewellery.

I love the wedding industry for its creativity. I love that as brides (and grooms) we can support independent businesses – guys like Clare who are keeping true crafts alive, working with couture techniques and with real skill to design unique pieces by hand, helping to create each bride’s wedding story.

This has to be the most elegant woodland wedding style inspo I’ve ever seen. It’s romantic and earthy, timeless and welcoming – and so luxurious. The look was created for a winter wedding, but for me it’s woodlandy and magical and will work beautifully for any season. The green colour palette with gold accents is divine; the tablescape is oh so perfect. Huge thanks to lovely Inspired by Susie Evans for sharing this with us today. There’s a full supplier list below.

Earthy and green tones highlighted with gold create a romantic, natural finish for this rustic, whimsical wedding inspiration of bringing the outside in to the gorgeous setting at The Ravenswood.

Ravenswood was built in part during the reign of Henry VI in the year 1426, though of this original structure little remains and that which does is now confined mainly to the core of the present building, of which the majority was erected during the mid and latter years of the Victorian era.

I’ve been so very lucky with the collaborations I’ve been asked to be a part of over the last couple of years. Working with talented people like Amy Swann and Jo Bradbury is an absolute dream – between them they transform my calligraphy by surrounding it with beauty.

I will forever be grateful to everyone I’ve had the pleasure to work with – and I hope there’ll be many more collaborations in the pipelines for the future. My calligraphy pens are ready!

Hello there lovelies! Does it feel as though spring time is on its way to you yet? No fear if not: we have a bunny on the blog today. Kinda. 😉 This is woodland wedding inspo with a city twist: the venue is The Terrace on Piccadilly and the bunny is from Easigrass! But we love him all the same. The shoot was organised and designed by key members of the UKAWP – the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners, whose members have been a big part of English Wedding since our launch back in 2009.

This group of talented wedding creatives from London came together to create a botanical wedding backdrop in the heart of the city. Photographer Neli Prahova captures it beautifully, from the flowers and styling by Anna Fern Weddings to the pretty Ananya Cards stationery and that stunning cake by Appletree Cake Design. The shoot’s artistic director was Valentina from The Stars Inside, a full service wedding design studio specialising in bespoke events across the UK and Europe. See the full supplier list below!
