An expert advice article from English Wedding members Jam Hot Band

Your wedding will be one of the best days of your life. Marrying your perfect partner surrounded by everyone you hold dear makes for a truly wonderful experience – couple that with choosing to tie the knot in a jaw-dropping foreign destination, and the magic is increased ten fold! There are so many exciting aspects when it comes to planning a destination wedding – but also a few more elements to consider than if you get married at home in the UK.

Hey lovelies – I have a dreamy real wedding to share with you today. This is a destination wedding from France, with delicately pretty styling touches and light and airy photography by our lovely friend Hannah K Photography. Francine is breathtaking in a gorgeous lace dress from Love Bridal London; Jamie her perfect match in Marc Darcy tailoring. As our regular readers will know, we tend to stay in the UK for our features, so this trip to the Loire Valley for a destination wedding is an absolute (albeit virtual) treat! I hope you love it too.

With love,

Allow us to whisk you away this Monday morning to the Greek islands. Our gorgeous couple Lauren & Sam were married on a beautiful summer’s day, with family joining them from all over the world. Sam’s elderly aunt travelled all the way from India, which was a delight for the happy couple! It was her first time in Europe and she loved it, especially having all the family together! They had a Mehndi in the evening, with the wedding ceremony the following day. The images capture the atmosphere of the celebrations beautifully, and there’s a gorgeous video of their day for you to enjoy below too.

Some things I’ve missed like crazy… hazy sunshine and evenings spent with friends. European sunshine and lazy days on holiday. Time to escape, to completely relax and be somewhere utterly new and refreshing. You too? Let’s hope it won’t be too long before we can safely spread our wings again. Meanwhile, I have the most beautiful photoshoot to share with you today. Our wonderful friend Tara from Pudding & Plum Photography was lucky enough to be in the Algarve before lockdown hit, and I asked her if we could publish these breathtaking images. Think dreamy wedding styling ideas and divine fashion photography in the evening sunlight.

… and then it was July. While I adjust to it being halfway through the summer already (really, though?!) I have the dreamiest style inspiration to share with you. I do like to begin every new month with a breathtaking feature, and today’s comes from the south of France, with some insanely talented UK wedding suppliers.
