I love Sophia and George’s wedding – Sophia is SUCH a beautiful bride. The flowers are gorgeous, George’s suit is fantastic, I love their little slate place names… and the setting and outdoors images are out of this world.

Photographer Tracey Warbey told me it was a very emotional day: “there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Sophia walked down the aisle, she looked stunning.” And Sophia and George are thrilled with their images. They will be recommending their photographer and videographer to everyone they know: “An absolute investment!!!! Those are the two things I will encourage my friends who are getting married to invest in, the day comes and goes, but the memories last for ever, so ensure some one has captured them in the manner you envision.

I love Trevenna Barns. This was my second wedding there in five months. It provides a beautiful backdrop for any wedding, as it is set in the wonderful Cornish countryside. I like the fact that the wedding party can hire the whole venue as well – it makes it more personal I think.

I love a wedding with a story, and with something different and personal to the couple – and for beautiful bride Claire and her gorgeous husband Matt the stories are absolutely incredible – as amazing as the images of their day.

The proposal is a story in itself: Matt was going to propose at the top of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania but Claire broke her foot and couldn’t go on holiday, so the best man went instead. “John videoed Matt proposing to me at the top. He later showed me the proposal and asked for my answer at the top of Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains – 5 months later – they both kept the secret well!

Their Cornwall wedding is absolutely beautiful: the hilltop theme continues with some of the most spectacular shots you can imagine – taken by lovely reportage photographer Alexa Poppe. Claire and Matt share some great advice with us in their interview below: to save money they say “Do as much as you can yourself. All of our church and table flowers were from the hedgerows or the garden and luckily we have some very talented flower arrangers as friends!

Morning lovely!! Do you mind if I distract you for a few minutes with rather a lot of wonderfully homemade wedding ideas? Good 🙂 Because Katherine and Ben’s wedding in Cornwall is about to knock your socks off… it’s so creative!

Now, wedding blogs are invariably the prettiest thing on the internet… but we’re not all about how weddings look. We like to share great advice and tips, and in today’s English Wedding Blog interview beautiful bride Katherine has some wise advice for other DIY brides and grooms: “A do it yourself wedding may seem cheaper than a hotel wedding, but remember that you will have to provide everything from tables and tablecloths to glasses and all of the drinks. The costs add up, so you have to be willing to shop around for the best deals and to spend the time organising every detail yourself!

That said… this is pretty awesome! Katherine’s Mum made unique invitations for every guest with pressed flowers. The DIY details on the day were fab: Katherine’s table plan, all of the jars and vases, the lanterns, pom poms, bunting and crochet were all home made with love.

Jake and Victoria are a cool, great-looking and stylish couple with infectious smiles and a sense of fun! Their October wedding is full of sunshine – and oh, those sunflowers are just delicious aren’t they?!

They married at The Green in Cornwall (on the edge of Bodmin moor) and took inspiration from country weddings and 1920s styling for their reception. It all looks fabulous. Special mention for the adorable cat table numbers (awwww!) and Victoria’s Dad’s help with the wellies and flowers which inspired their day.

My favourite touch for this wedding is the dress. So, so beautiful… and yet it wasn’t love at first sight for this one-off original vintage dress. Victoria told me at first “the dress was dirty, had a hole in it and the beading was falling off. But, it was a handmade original 1920s net dress with the most beautiful beading on it and that’s what I fell in love with…” Read the wedding report at the end of today’s post to find out how she managed to restore it so beautifully.

Today’s wedding in Cornwall is too delicious for words – Catherine and Paul’s day is all about laughter and love, friends and family, and a fabulous celebration which has me smiling goofily at the screen… so very beautiful, heart and soul 🙂

They married at Mylor village in Cornwall, a beautiful location with character and charm. Their day was creative and pretty, and Catherine’s simple dress is just perfect – she looks amazing!

Jutta and Rob’s wedding in a rustic barn is relaxed, characterful and exciting. With plenty of DIY details and atmospheric photography by Barney Walters it really stands out from the crowd and I think it’s wonderful! Jutta wears a Phase Eight wedding dress, bought last minute – but she fell totally in love with it and looks stunning.

DIY country village wedding Barney Walters (1)The venue for the reception is a country farm barn which the bride and groom decorated to gorgeous effect with paper poms and a glitterball, long trestle tables and wooden chairs with hessian table runners.

Cornwall’s Eden Project is a pretty special venue for a wedding, and with the grandest of eco-friendly and charitable intentions, it’s a pretty cool venue to choose as well. Betzy and James had a gorgeous, eco-chic and unique Eden Project wedding with some glorious details I’ve been excited to show you!

Their wedding photographer, lovely Jason Mark Harris, submitted their beautiful wedding a week or two ago, and the beautiful bride and groom have very kindly shared their wedding report with us all today. My three favourite things: Betzy’s stunning wedding dress by David Western Bridal (the back detailing is exquisite!), their Choccywoccydoodah cake (always a winner!) and the overall atmosphere of their incredible day. I’d love to see more eco-chic weddings on the blog… so if that’s you too, do get in touch!
