As those beautifully frosty mornings return, I have a truly magical bridal editorial to share with you today. Inspired by Frozen, with an elegant and wonderfully enchanting colour palette of ice blue and white, this shoot from a talented bunch of wedding suppliers at Cavokay’s Old Milking Parlour will inspire winter weddings and festive tables alike! The images were sent in by lovely Natalie Stevenson Photography, who tells us a little about the inspiration for the shoot below.

Christmas is such a magical time; it was important to translate that magic through the medium of this styled shoot. If you love fairytales like me, Disney is the epitome of fairytale romance. I knew right away that Disney’s ‘Frozen’ would serve as the perfect source of inspiration for a romantic and wintery shoot.

The showstopper of the shoot was undeniably the peacock-feather grown by designer Eliza Jane Howell, fit for a real-life snow queen.

Good morning lovely! An early post today because I’m off teaching a Christmas calligraphy class in the Lake District (so excited I can’t tell you! We’re doing wrapping paper and baubles!) And so today’s creative wedding photoshoot was just perfect to share with you right now. It’s just so beautiful! The flowers are incredible and I adore Julie Michaelsen’s photography. (I was lucky enough to have Julie send me some photographs of my calligraphy back in 2017 and have been in love with her work ever since!) The look is beautifully styled by Lamp Productions with stunning calligraphy by Judy Broad and the most excitingly creative cake from Nevie-Pie Cakes – see the full supplier list at the end of the feature!

“Set in the heart of the Surrey countryside in England, Millbridge Court is a contemporary, exclusive use wedding and events venue. We decided to choose Millbridge Court for our shoot as we knew we wanted to shoot at a countryside venue. Luckily, Millbridge Court is within easy reach of London and it has a relaxed, refined luxury feel to it. Not only is it such a unique venue with a naturally rural yet contemporary and elegant feel, but it has a stunning interior and is flooded with light all year round.

Good morning, lovelies! I’m officially back at my blogging desk after a week in Venice, and VERY excited for the week ahead. We’ve some stunning weddings and ideas to share with you, and my inbox is bursting with submissions (I have 331 emails eeek) so it’s going to be a busy and beautiful week! Let’s kick things off with a fabulous wedding photoshoot from lovely Lorna Newman Photography, from a new wedding venue in Cambridgeshire. I hope you love this as much as I do!

A team of amazing suppliers came together for this inspired shoot mainly to showcase a beautiful new venue called Stockmans Meadows, in Cambridgeshire. The venue is set alongside a river (they even have a boat). It has a cute boho feel and is super romantic so our concept for the shoot was “Romance by the Riverside’. We wanted to showcase the venue, as well as all the very talented suppliers work that was involved.

This. This is one of the loveliest shoots I’ve seen in my EXACTLY 10 years of being a wedding blogger. (Because yes, I’ve just realised English Wedding was born on November 16th, 2009 and it’s our birthday week!) It seems the perfect opportunity to share something very special with you all.

The location is The Railway Barn at New Hall Vineyards. The concepts and styling are by lovely Hayley Jayne Weddings & Events, and images were captured so beautifully by Terri and Lori. I adore Jess’s dress – a stunning design from the inimitable St Patrick brand, loaned from Turner & Pennell in Rayleigh.

Petal and Wild‘s flowers make this shoot exceptional. The breathtaking structures, the cool and breezy palette, the blooms nestled amongst the balloons… and oh, while we’re on THAT subject will you just look at this beauty?! It’s by the spectacularly creative Fable & Moon. (You’re going to want to check out Sophie’s insta! – she’s all kinds of amazing!)

This fabulous shoot struck me for its uniqueness: for the subtle shift in roles, as well as for the breathtaking styling elements and artisan detailing. Those of you looking for a sustainable wedding with luxury touches need look no further. The shoot was conceived and styled by lovely Nikki at The Toast, and captured so beautifully by OliveJoy Photography. The setting at Bignor Park is enchanting: upturned chairs and trailing, tumbling tablescapes set the scene for a very different wedding style. Florals are fabulously wild and organic, with dried elements and the most wonderful velvet ribbons. The stationery by In The Detail fills a table with beauty which is minimal, elegant and raw.

I love the non-traditional look of this shoot which is somehow still reminiscent of historical romance: the groom with the bouquet; the bride standing above him (not submissive but equal: fiercely proud of her femininity) and the beautiful bridesmaid (who I see in the context of this shoot as a bride, and I hope those of you planning a wedding with something other than a bride + groom dynamic will adore this shoot for its varied perspectives as I do!)

If this isn’t the loveliest thing – glamorous and romantic wedding styling ideas by the dozen, set in a 700 year old country house and with plush fabrics, gold accents, breathtaking florals – I was blown away when I first set eyes on this editorial, and I just know you will be too!

Heidi from Simply Irresistible Cakes London organised and submitted this special photoshoot, which brought together some of Kent’s finest wedding suppliers at Nurstead Court. The look was vintage, romantic and with a glam and luxurious atmosphere. The palette of navy, burgundy and magenta is timeless and that little bit different from the pastels we see so much of – and it’s gloriously dramatic. The cake, obviously – a true showstopper!

Danny Inwood Photography‘s images capture the opulent and luxurious vibe of the day, with the most stunning images of bride Ellie’s hair and makeup (by Kirsten hair and make up) and capturing the elegant detailing and sparkle on Eliza Jane Howell‘s fabulous bridal gown (which we LOVE for a winter wedding).

Imagine a wedding venue brimming with ancient history; yet in the heart of a beautiful English city. Imagine an evening celebration in a timeless setting, a rich treasure house with grand, sweeping staircases and priceless paintings.

Our friends at The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford have brought together a bunch of supremely talented creatives to showcase the magic of their venue. The Ashmolean is available as a private wedding venue after hours, its opulent reception rooms and architectural alcoves making a stunning and fascinating setting for your special celebration.

The warmth and majesty of this bridal photoshoot from the Ashmolean Museum takes my breath away. The beautiful images by Zaki Charles Photography capture the dramatic spaces and historic character of the museum. Lucy wears stunning gowns from Bridal Reloved in Wallingford, complemented by beautifully styled hair by Rachael Cappocci, and carries a bouquet from The Country Garden Flower Company.

Hello, beautiful! I’m so incredibly excited today to be sharing one part of an EPIC bridal story – this is an editorial photoshoot from some of Cheshire’s most sought-after wedding suppliers. Lovely wedding photographer Zehra Jagani – Wedding Photographer of the Year in 2018’s Asian Wedding Awards – and the amazingly talented Sadauf from The Wedding Fairy teamed up to create something as dreamy as can be at Delamere Manor. Together they created a timeless look, with some beautiful cool tones of platinum greys and dusty blues with figs, mixed berries, herbs and all year round floral sprigs – and they were kind enough to invite me to provide calligraphy and stationery (Find me at By Moon & Tide) for the occasion.

Hey beautiful! I hope you’re having a lovely week so far. Today I have something special to share with you: stunning Paul Zeni wedding dresses and a wonderfully rich and opulent colour palette of deep plums, dusky pinks and luxe textures. I’ve a feeling you’re going to tumble head over heels in love with this shoot – I know I have! Thanks to lovely Sophie Oldhamstead Photography for sharing this with us! Sophie worked with a whole bunch of talented Essex wedding creatives – you’ll find a full list at the end of the feature.

I was totally inspired by a selection of Paul Zeni dresses and their focus on beautiful fabrics and embellishments and felt compelled to orchestrate a styled shoot which would allow us to explore a focus on simple foundations but with a modern, delicate twist.

Morning lovelies! I have a fun and unique blog to share with you today – all based around the idea of a couple eloping – and taking their beloved dog with them! This is soooo cute and I just love the idea. I’m all for elopements anyway (it’s totally what I’d do!) and the addition of Indy the Hungarian Vizla just makes this all the more adorable.

Images are by Iconik Photography, the venue is Trenderway Weddings and the day was styled and planned by Hannah’s Weddings & Events. The lovely film of the day is by Kate Fierek. See the full supplier list below!

Natalie from Iconik Photography told me, “A dog can be very much part of the family and therefore should play an important part in life’s important events! Elopements are the ideal way of shaking off the “frills” of a large wedding and concentrating on just the two of you. Very much your wedding your way!

Good morning! I hope you’ve had the most wonderful weekend. Today I just can’t resist sharing some of the beautiful images lovely Zehra Jagani sent to me a day or two ago. These are from a wedding inspiration shoot which I supplied calligraphy for. The shoot was published on Brides Up North over the summer.

The epic shoot these came from had a Provençal flavour, with dreamy eucalyptus and soft blues and greys – and florals to die for! I love the colours of the calligraphy for a winter wedding though: the soft tones and delicate papers work beautifully for a modern wedding in the colder half of the year.

The handwritten menus on acrylic work beautifully placed over eucalyptus – and that little berry peeking from underneath is a sweet touch for a more autumnal wedding. These can have names added to double up as place names / menus. Contact me for details!

It’s rather lovely to be sharing a styled wedding shoot with a family focus – today’s images sent in by lovely Pudding & Plum Photography are all the more special for the little face alongside the bride and groom! I know so many of you will be thinking of ways to involve your children at your wedding, and this beautiful shoot includes a little bridesmaid from the very beginning. You know what? It makes me smile SO much – her happy little grin is just adorable! The styling by Worsley Creative is brimming with ideas for you to take away: the cake and treats look divine; the dress is dreamy as anything. And the FLORALS… I have no words! You will LOVE this!

The urban landscape of sprawling Salford may not be an immediate choice of location for a romantic wedding shoot with its busy streets and industrial vibe but look closer and you will discover some medieval magic amid the metropole. Ordsall Hall dates back as far as 1177 and provides a striking setting for combining contemporary romance with historic grandeur and drama.
