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.

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!

Lush city garden wedding styling ideas on English Wedding, images by Neli Prahova Photography (32)

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!

Belvoir Castle near Grantham is a beautiful Regency Castle in the heart of England with breathtaking landscaped grounds. With striking sculptures, paintings and objets d’art, the Castle is a perfect backdrop for unique, stylish weddings and is also a popular film location, used in the ‘Young Victoria’ and most recently ‘Victoria and Abdul’. It really is an incredible venue to host your wedding.

Our blog feature comes from a group of English wedding suppliers who love Belvoir Castle and its rich history. Inspired by their surroundings, they created a wedding look to appeal to modern, stylish couples looking for sophistication and elegance but with a fresh twist. The team chose a romantic soft colour palette with faded hues of apricots, blush, lilacs and soft grey tones. The colours were inspired by the warm stone of Belvoir, and by the subtle colours in the Castle’s elegant interiors.

Eco friendly and vegan wedding inspiration with Kiss by Light Photography (7)
FEATURED

I LOVE that we’ve been able to tell you about some wonderfully creative and sustainable / ethical wedding suppliers on the blog this week. If you missed Thursday’s blog do take a peek at the beautiful Sanyukta Shrestha dresses we featured here.  Today I’m really excited to share a wedding style photoshoot from a group of like-minded Dorset wedding suppliers who came together to create a sustainable and eco-friendly wedding look.

Eco friendly and vegan wedding inspiration with Kiss by Light Photography (29)

The photographers are lovely Kiss In Light, who are based in the New Forest. They have made changes in their home and work lives (taking up yoga, living as ethical and eco-friendly a lifestyle as possible, and bringing sustainability into the core of their business and ethos) over the last year, and this inspired the photoshoot: they wanted to show all of you lovely couples how beautiful a sustainable wedding style can be! So with the images we’re brining you today we want to bring you a little spark, a glimmer of inspiration to help you create your own ethical and sustainable wedding.

Wedding inspiration comes in all styles and colours, but when it’s shot at the exclusive Bawtry Hall near Doncaster and you have South Yorkshire’s finest suppliers in attendance, you know it’s going to be pretty inspirational. So, get ready to Instagram, pin, like and share this contemporary styled shoot, sent in by Eternal Images Photography.

The group of award winning suppliers who brought this shoot together wanted a theme that was organic and could grow as their designs took shape. It’s a great idea to visit your venue and look at the colours already there, especially for a venue like Bawtry Hall. So they chose soft shades of blue, grey accents, and hues of gold and peach to tastefully reflect the elegant sophistication and modern design elements that Bawtry Hall is known for.

Beautiful dresses from KMR Bridal in Sheffield perfectly fit the elegant style of Bawtry Hall – Kelly’s wedding gowns are timeless and graceful. Paul’s classic blue suit complements the dress, and his buttonhole and the bridal bouquet by Maggie Rose Bouquets add a unique finishing touch. The models’ hair and make up by Harriet Harvey and Charlotte Mallinder are classic and timelessly beautiful.

I thought we all deserved a little treat this Sunday afternoon, so gather round and snuggle up for an extra special dose of wedding lovely. Our fabulous friend Amanda Karen Photography sent in this beauty of a shoot and I’ve fallen for it hook, line and sinker. The styling is exquisite; the colour palette is fabulous. This is a shoot in two halves: the copper dress takes my breath away and I’d love to see more brides wearing such a bold statement dress… but if that’s not for you then the bridal jumpsuit is unique, different and 100% on trend for 2019! Both outfits are by the always fabulous Charlie Brear.

Kelston Old Barn wedding styling with Little Wedding Helper and Sam Gibson Photography (6)
FEATURED

On such a freeeeezzing cold day I can’t think of anything lovelier than bold and beautiful floral arrangements to fill our screens – can you? These stunning displays were created by Pipley Flowers for a fabulous wedding photoshoot at Kelston Old Barn, which was designed and styled by super lovely Kirsten Butler at The Little Wedding Helper.

The floral displays are delicate yet striking; the tablescape playful and beautiful. I love the fabric hanging seating plan by White Cottage Weddings – this is a real statement piece, and so different! The vintage and charming look incorporates thoughtful little touches: the old ink pots for flowers on the tables are a stroke of genius! And the pretty tapered candles set against the old brick walls of the barn are especially effective.

Gorgeous bride Helen wears vintage gowns from Heartfelt Vintage – a unique little boutique in Bristol, with one the largest collections of authentic vintage wedding dresses in the UK. I just adore the colour of this dress!

Hey there lovely, how was your weekend? I’m sure I’m still covered in paint after a weekend’s decorating – and oh so ready for some wedding pretty on the blog this morning! As always, we have a STUNNING feature to kick off the week. Huge thanks to lovely Toby Lowe Photography for sending us this beautiful editorial shoot for today. I love this – the vibrant colours of the roses are stunning, the sunlight is amazing, the styling and details are gorgeous. Absolutely perfect – and all those roses are very ‘English Wedding’!!!

Toby teamed up with a team of creative wedding suppliers during the summer months at the RHS Rosemoor Gardens in North Devon. They had use of the incredible rose gardens at Rosemoor. On the shoot day they were in absolute full bloom during one of the hottest days of the year. This is one reason it’s worth spending a year or so to plan your wedding – it means you can visit your venue 12 months before your big day and see the natural features which will transform your wedding photos and make a breathtaking natural backdrop for your photographs. The shoot is stunning and we hope it will inspire those of you who are looking for unique and different wedding style ideas – still with a healthy dose of the quintessential English country garden wedding!

It’s really important to me as a wedding blogger that I introduce every feature I share with you. Each photograph, each wedding styling idea is carefully selected for the blog and I like to explain why I love the articles we publish… but honestly today I couldn’t dream of writing a better introduction for you than lovely Laura from The Rustic Dresser has already done! Every detail, every image takes my breath away – the location and the gorgeous images by English Wedding team member Emily Black Photography are just the dreamiest. I can only call this wedding blog gold, and leave you in Laura’s capable hands to read and see more!

The Old Milking Parlour at Cavokay House is one of those venues that has an atmosphere all of its own which just encases you each and every time you walk in the doors. Some venues need styling in place before you can see their true potential come alive before your eyes but The Milking Parlour isn’t one of those.  If the space could talk it would say “Hi there, come on in, kick your shoes off and relax”. It just has this cosy, warm and unmistakeable welcoming feel to it which makes it the perfect place to hold a wedding reception.

So there are just – ooh, six days left now until Christmas Day! And I hope you lovely lot will forgive me for going a little bit festive in some of our features this week! The florals in today’s feature are just wonderful, with warm reds and lush textures – I’ll always fall for a rich, juicy dahlia and a full red rose… but when they’re surrounded by luscious foliage and beautiful, elegant styling… I’m in heaven!

Kimberley Louise Makeup organised a styled bridal photoshoot to showcase modern Hollywood glamour at Balcombe Place, incorporating rich florals and elegant make-up and dresses in a modern Hollywood style, which was a perfect fit for this English country house wedding venue.

Fiona Mills from Fiona Mills Art captured some beautiful images to inspire any bride who desires a Hollywood look for her wedding, together with glamorous styling ideas. Her inspiration came from the sirens of the 50’s, where sexiness, sass and confidence oozed out with every pose.
