Beautiful Buckinghamshire wedding with photos by S2 Photography (34)
FEATURED

When I first started out as a wedding calligrapher I illustrated Hampden House by hand for a bride and groom’s wedding table plan! When I saw it in Omair and Sarah’s wedding pictures today I knew it instantly: a glorious venue, unique and instantly recognisable… and perfect for this loveliest of couples! I love everything about their day (I’d love to see pics from their Asian wedding on the Sunday too, but today we’re focusing on the traditional English celebration) – the elegant styling, vibrant florals and oodles of romance from beginning to end. It’s all just so magical! Images are by fabulous Warwickshire wedding photographers and English Wedding Directory members S2 Images.

We have different religions, backgrounds, heritages and we wanted to represent all of that. But most importantly represent our relationship so celebrating bringing all these elements together which we decided to do over a weekend rather than in one day. We had two main events so most things were duplicated; two venues, two sets of outfits, two cakes, two caterers. But we didn’t want to simply repeat one day so we had different traditions incorporated over the weekend so there was always something new.

I know a lot of you lovely brides and grooms to be live in and around Buckinghamshire – and today I have a very special feature for all of you. The charming folks at Stoke Place asked if we could come and visit their magnificent wedding venue and write about it on the blog. Luckily I was having an email chat with wedding photographer Damion Mower on the same day (Damion is one of our recommended wedding photographers and a regular feature on English Wedding) and he very kindly went along on behalf of us all to have a nosey around and tell us all about Stoke Place! – Damion, thank you! – It’s an incredibly beautiful venue with a choice of ceremony rooms and extensive landscaped gardens… as you’re about to see from the photos Damion took for us.

Nestled in the gorgeous Buckinghamshire countryside, approximately 30 minutes outside of London is the stunning Stoke Place country house. If you’re in the throes of deciding on your wedding venue then a visit to Stoke Place should certainly be on your shortlist. As you drive into the 26 acre estate you’re greeted by a mature row of hornbeam trees leading you to the country house.

Happy Wednesday you lovely people! I’m happy to be introducing another new member of the English Wedding team today. Super talented Buckinghamshire wedding photographer Damion Mower joins us and will be sharing some of his beautiful weddings on the blog in the coming months. We first featured Damion’s images when we shared gorgeous Malin and Simon’s Swallows Oast wedding on the blog last month – they left such a glowing review for Damion, and I personally loved how his shots captured the story of their day. So – brilliant news – there’ll be more where that came from and I’d love for you to take a couple of minutes and scroll through some of Damion’s very best shots. Stop and look, and you’ll smile, feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and perhaps even giggle (those heels are high for such a cute little guy!) I’ll hand over to Damion to introduce himself…

Alison and Gerald are brilliant – their flowers are fabulous and their wedding mixes classic styling touches with a sense of timelessness and Hollywood glamour. The pearl strings and champagne table settings are a lovely idea – and everything about their day at the Bull Hotel in Gerrards Cross is pretty, feminine and super romantic.

I love seeing couples getting married later in life. I think Alison and Gerald’s wedding has its own kind of magic: and they look perfect together, don’t you think? Beginning a new journey together as husband and wife is a wonderful thing to do, no matter if you’re twenty-something or fifty-something – and the smiles on our bride and groom’s faces prove that marriage is just as exciting at any stage in life.

“But we loved with a love that was more than love—
I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
Coveted her and me.”

Beautiful Buckinghamshire wedding inspiration shoot, images by Amanda Karen Photography (30)

Edgar Allen Poe’s hauntingly beautiful love poem Annabel Lee inspired today’s breathtaking bridal shoot. I adore the luxury, the timelessness and opulence of everything you’re about to see.

Images are by lovely Amanda Karen Photography who explains, “The dark and romantic nature of this poem was woven through the shoot with deep reds, elegant blacks and opulent golden touches. Hedsor House was a natural choice for the venue with its iconic looming stature and its luxurious interiors.”

Extravagance and luxury styling really works here. The haute couture wedding dresses look regal and sensuous; and I do so love any beautiful wedding dress which isn’t white. Ian Stuart knocks it out of the park, obviously… swooon!!!

The rich colour palette lends itself beautifully to autumn or winter wedding styling – the gold accents and those divine black candles are fabulous.

Sublime calligraphy, a magnificent venue and a dream dress make today’s wedding blog a real treat.

Stoke Place wedding blog with Buckinghamshire photographers Neil Walker Photography (10)

Words & Images: Neil Walker Photography

Shot on a beautifully sunny day in June, this & the locations made for a quintessentially English wedding, all the more unusual because Jennifer is from the US. The clash of cultures was what made it memorable as we had celebrations & ceremonies from each country.

Stoke Place wedding blog with Buckinghamshire photographers Neil Walker Photography (40)

Stoke Place is a wonderful venue, bright & airy, the light is fantastic for me as a photographer. The gardens made it easy to have everyone outside, but also have enough space to take Jennifer & Marcus off for some photos of the two of them without everyone else being able to see us. Isabel Smith’s wedding planning made for a very smooth day as she coordinated with Stoke Place.

Today’s beautiful bride Anouska is an interior designer, and so the styling and details of this winter wonderland wedding are so carefully considered and coordinated… it’s truly magical. From the flowers to the little birds, trees and fairy lights, every little aspect is so personal and charming… winter brides will LOVE seeing today’s wedding.

Winter wonderland wedding ideas Samie Lee Photography (19)

“I had white, blush pink bouquet with crystals and white thistles. Peonies are my favourite flowers and were out of season, so Sue and Lucy sourced me the most stunning fake silk peonies and added them to my bouquet – nobody knew as they were so realistic and what’s lovely is that I get to keep them forever.” www.suebartonflowers.co.uk

Winter wonderland wedding ideas Samie Lee Photography (41)

Anouska and Greig’s advice for other couples is something I would emphasise to every bride- and groom-to-be: “Cut down your numbers and spend the money making the day extra special for yourselves and the people you love the most. Put your own stamp on the day – it should be a reflection of who you are and what you love.”

FEATURED

Sarah and Russell’s choice of wedding venue is awesome… I adore a venue with a personality all of its own, and Dorney Court in Windsor has enough character and history to inspire every bride and groom.

Nicola and Ben were married at Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire this autumn – just as the colours of the season were at their most magical. The venue is out of this world: a fabulous country house dating back to the 13th century.

I love every wedding I publish on the blog for a different reason. Sometimes it’s the flowers, other times the handcrafted details. Today it’s the way gorgeous bride Chelsea shows her excitement and happiness in every photograph. Scrolling through the images of Luke and Chelsea’s wedding has me feeling nervous, then delighted and content along with her… and I hope you’ll enjoy all of their beautiful images as much as I have.

This is another wonderful outdoor wedding from The Pavilion at Lane End. The pavilion gives the option of having an outdoor ceremony, but there’s always a back up plan in case the weather isn’t on your side… and for Chelsea and Luke it was looking gloomy until the very last minute, when the weather brightened and meant they could be married outside after all!

I’m not a weepy blogger… but it’s totally true that Laura and Rob’s interview for the English Wedding Blog brought a tear to my eye. They’re the most amazing couple: their images are as wonderful as the day they planned around the passions of their family and friends.

How is your Monday going? We’ve just got back from our adventures at The Handmade Fair and I wanted to share something pretty and summery with you… a glorious outdoor wedding at The Pavilion at Lane End.

The flowers are fabulous; the bride and groom look amazing, the venue is one of my favourites.

Jenni and Phil’s wedding style is classic and traditional, with lovely coral and pink accents in the flowers and some brighter colour mixes through the day. The cake is tiered chocolate with tumbling fruit and chocolate swirls; it looks too good to eat!
