It’s the weekend so let’s PLAY! I have the funnest, prettiest, PINKEST wedding to share with you today, with gorgeous couple Poppy and Panos. They married in church and had a reception at Rectory Farm in Cambridge, where they styled the marquee with two beautiful big chandeliers hanging from the roof, and decorated the dace floor with huge pink paddle balloons with pink and white tassels. The David Austin roses everywhere are such a show stopper – this is most definitely a wedding for those of us who love pink!

Nicola did the photos for my sister in law’s sister’s wedding, she also did the photography for a wedding I was a guest at. From looking at her pictures and experiencing her bubbly personality we knew Nicola was the photographer for us! This turned out to be TOTALLY true!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend…. and ooh look, sunshine again! This week promises to be a beauty, so let’s fill it with some FABULOUS weddings shall we? I have a stunning Cambridgeshire wedding to share with you this morning. Beautiful Olivia and dapper hubby Philip had an outdoor ceremony and wonderfully light and bright marquee reception at Chippenham Park. My lovely friend Heather Jackson Photography captured their day in her uniquely beautiful style.

“Liv is a ballet teacher and laughs constantly when she is with Phil, she absolutely shone on their wedding day and laughed literally all day and night; even when it threatened to rain all morning!

Her ‘bride squad’ were hilarious and the mood of this day was just electric – I think this leaps out when the girls are together! Sharing laughs with their Best Man and ‘third wheel’ Richard during the ceremony was hilarious.

There’s nothing better than waking up on a Monday morning… and going straight back to sleep, is there?! Happy Bank Holiday everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely day, whatever you’re up to! Who else forgot to turn their alarm off this morning?! Anyways… today we have the most glorious Cambridge wedding to share with you. I love it: for Jen and Alex’s head-over-heels-in-love vibe, and for the beautiful summer feels captured so brilliantly by our friend and Norwich wedding photographer Rob Dodsworth Photography.

Childerley Hall is an Elizabethan house set within the most stunning gardens! It is also home to one of the longest timber framed barn wedding venues in England – the Long Barn! Virtually any wedding will fit in this venue, which seats anything from 30 to 350 guests!

Gorgeous couple Lubov and Alexander met a few years ago through work and he proposed to her in Paris on a romantic holiday. They moved to London and wanted a very intimate, romantic elopement just for the two of them somewhere simple and beautiful so they chose the meadows of Wandlebury Hill in the Cambridgeshire countryside. They wanted everything to be kept very natural, all about their feelings and nothing else. They were a shy couple but very much in love with each other – and their elopement pics are some of the most romantic and beautiful I’ve ever seen.

Today’s real elopement shows you don’t have to have a big wedding to be married. Marriage is a commitment; celebrating it is separate, entirely up to you and can be as public or as private as the two of you would like it to be. You don’t need wedding favours, stationery, a massive cake or even a venue, or a band or caterers. All you ever need is just two humans in love.

Hey lovely! How was your weekend? I had a fantastic calligraphy workshop on Friday, followed by two Christmas shopping trips over the weekend… and yes, I’m almost done! We shopped locally in the Lake District and bought lots of gorgeous handmade bits and pieces for everyone. I still have my man to buy for… leaving the trickiest until last!

Today I’m sharing a gorgeous wedding which lovely Simon and Karla from Sky Photography submitted to the blog a few weeks ago. Gorgeous bride and groom Kayleigh and Kieron were married at Bassmead Manor Barns back in the summer (remember those wonderful sunny weeks which seemed to go on forever?!) and their day is just blissfully beautiful.

“Our wedding was just the best day ever, surrounded by our favourite people. It all happened in the beautiful English countryside during the 2018 heatwave.

We wanted to keep the day relatively informal. The venue didn’t require a lot of decoration, due to its gorgeous surroundings. We kept the decor quite natural, in a simple navy, white and blush theme. The flowers were a dusty pink rose ‘Amnesia’ and big fluffy white ‘David Austin’ roses amongst lots of luscious eucalyptus and greenery.

I love today’s wedding. Scrolling through the photos takes me on a mini rollercoaster of emotions – with gorgeous details and a stunning bride and groom, the proudest mum ever, and some wonderfully comical pics of little ones enjoying the day. The overwhelming feeling from this lovely Chippenham Park wedding is of love and happiness – and I know you’ll adore what you’re about to see.

Cambridge wedding inspiration from Chippenham Park with Lee Allison Photography (5)

This was a beautiful spring wedding at one of my favourite venues in Cambridge, Chippenham Park. The grounds are just amazing, a perfect backdrop at every turn. The bridesmaids wore unusual bright red dresses too which made for some great contrast in the group photos. ~ Lee Allison, Cambridge wedding photographer

Elegant and fun Madingley Hall wedding with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (12)
FEATURED

Hey lovelies! I’m so happy to be sharing such beautiful inspiration with you this week – I like to think I save the best until last and this year we’re celebrating December in style!! Today’s wedding combines historic elegance with lots of fun touches and a secret theme of Jane Austen – gorgeous bride and groom Bex and John had Jane Austen photo props and did their first dance as the dance from the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice!! How awesome is that? Images are by our lovely friend and sponsor Ayshea Goldberg Photography, who gets the loveliest review from the happy couple (just a couple of paragraphs on…)

Elegant and fun Madingley Hall wedding with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (23)

The Tudor hall at Madingley was so historic and beautiful. We personalised the Saloon Room with lots of photos of us and our family and friends. Our florist added incredible flower garlands to the staircases and the top table. We reused ivy garlands from the church over the grand fireplace and used the bridesmaids bouquets in pint glasses on the tables! My sister put together boxes of goodies for the bathrooms – facewipes, safety pins, chewing gum, nice soap and hand cream. They were such a lovely touch.

Today’s wedding is just amazing – the styling is all whites and greens, a key trend for the year and so beautifully done. I LOVE the florals more than I could even begin to say! Gorgeous bride Emily looked stunning in her beautiful gown by Temperley, with stunning Jimmy Choo shoes. The family pet pugs even wore special flowers on their collars – so cute! Images are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Helen Warner Photography.

The flowers for the marquee reception were particularly stunning including a hanging floral pole. The florals were soft greens and whites and included peonies, roses, tulips, jasmine and trailing vines. All supplied by Through the Looking Glass Flowers. The beautiful cake which perfectly fits all the styling of the day was supplied by Emily Jane Cakes.

Our theme was traditional and ethereal – we wanted it to be an English Country wedding but without any of the cliches or trends. Jonathan and I are known as ‘Toad and Pig’ so we found ways to incorporate that into the day. There were little jars filled with pig and toad sweets for each guest that my mum made. Our caterer’s husband made a bar for the marquee too which was really cool!

I’m so thrilled to be welcoming someone to the English Wedding Blog today who I know you’ll love. Cambridge wedding photographer Lee Allison loves his work and it truly shows in his images. Do check out his blog for some beautiful recent weddings – I’ve included some favourite images here for you too. 🙂

You’ll see Lee’s image on every page of the blog from today (to the right—->) and I’m really excited to tell you that Lee and I already have a couple of gorgeous real weddings up our sleeves for you in the coming weeks. I can’t wait to share them with you!

“I’m Lee, a wedding photographer based in Cambridge and you won’t be surprised to hear I love weddings. Every wedding is unique, and it’s always great to see the couple’s personalities shine through on the day.

I love to shoot natural, fun and creative images. I document your day as it unfolds, with very little direction or posing, meaning my photos capture you at your very best, relaxed and happy.

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!”

Wow!!! Today’s is a wedding which will grab your attention instantly! I absolutely loved the daytime portraits of Alice and James, and then the evening light transformed this day into something incredibly, unbelievably beautiful.

We got married and had the reception at The Old Hall in Ely just outside of Cambridge. It’s a beautiful venue and we got married in their gazebo overlooking a lake and Ely cathedral.

The venue and scenery were so beautiful we didn’t need to worry about decorations too much as it was so beautiful itself. Our photographer Nicola Casey Photography did a great job capturing the surroundings in the photos, the fields ready for harvest, the tall reeds by the lakes, and our reflection across the water with the moody clouds above us.

So this is an absolute stunner of a wedding… John and Lucy are sooo gorgeous and their wedding day is full of wonderful makes and beautiful details. I love it to bits and I hope you will too! Lucy’s dress is out of this world, the images are light and fresh and make me want to see more. The minimal styling is really refreshing – the Cambridge venues and emotions of the day really do say it all.

Beautiful Cambridge wedding blog with Benni Carol Photography (8)

Lucy’s mum made her wedding dress… isn’t it fabulous? Other details were homemade as well, from stationery to flower arrangements and even props for the photo booth! “We sourced the flowers ourselves and my mum, sister and niece arranged them. We also used tealights, fairy lights, and created our own photo booth with some props and an instant camera. I really enjoyed designing our wedding stationery, and the photo booth was also a lot of fun – sourcing all the props etc.”
