I LOVE this wedding!! It’s wintry but not too Christmassy (which means I can happily publish it in spring!) and the bride and groom are gorgeous. I especially love Tom’s tweed suit and cap – and Katherine’s hair is sooooo beautiful. The little mice holding flowers are the icing on the cake… just wonderful.

Our wedding flowers by Hollyhocks Florist were beautful dark purple Calla Lilies, amnesia roses and gyp – looked amazing! It was Christmas so we had beautiful decorations for free! A floor to ceiling high Christmas tree, and miniature ones in the windows. We went for hessian bows on all the chairs. Our invitations, order of service and confetti were all homemade. They took a long time, but they were cheap and added some extra love to the day!

Katherine and Calum’s wedding is such a beautiful one – this lovely couple were married in a cosy candlelit barn, served up comfort food and mulled drinks and used soft whites and styling touches for their winter wedding. The wonderful images are by Devon wedding photographer Lee Maxwell.

“My flowers were an informal posy of soft, blossomy white flowers (with touches of navy from some anemones). The bridesmaids had relaxed bunches of gypsophila. The florist was Earth Gallery Flowers, who were incredibly helpful in providing some initial advice as to what would work best and what was readily available in winter.

My wedding dress was by Catherine Deane, who creates beautiful, floaty, ethereal designs. The boutique where I found it was The Ivory Secret in Crediton – a gorgeous little shop run by the two most helpful ladies; it is like stepping into a dream. I had been to three shops and seen lots of dresses that I liked, but hadn’t had that ‘this is the one’ moment that everyone talks about. I was starting to dismiss it as a myth… until I tried on what eventually became my dress. Strangely, it wasn’t the one that I was most enthusiastic about when I saw it on the hanger, but as soon as I was in it I knew it was absolutely perfect.

I LOVE this wedding – Amy and Dan had the best homemade table plan I’ve ever seen! I adore the idea of a spot of wild swimming (crazy!) and all the flowers, personal touches with stationery… and Amy’s dress is just wonderful. This is beautiful, country charm at its very best and I hope you fall in love with their day as much as I have!

The ideas here will inspire creative brides and grooms – and the beautiful images will make your eyes ever so happy. Amy is a breathtaking bride, Dan her perfect match. Their day is one which speaks to my heart with personal touches, individuality and romance.

Bryony and Josh are pretty much the sweetest couple ever. Their summer wedding at Brunel Manor is styled with a delicate pastel touch – I adore the table plan and cake decoration, and Oh, those flowers…

The beautiful bride wears a gorgeous dress and veil from The White Boutique. Teamed with a breathtaking bouquet of roses, lavender, freesias, delphiniums and eucalyptus, it looks wonderful.

The home made table plan in pastel lemon with pretty floral pegs caught my eye: I love how they’ve been creative with colours to make a really eye-catching table plan – this is gorgeous and will be making its way to my Pinterest as soon as I find my iPad this evening! There are so many pretty little details to this day, I know you will love it.

I LOVE this! Everything from the tablecloth to the way Alice grins towards the camera… the bouquet, the cake… it’s all just so perfect. I do adore a styled shoot – they’re wonderful for inspiration, ideas, and for making my eyes such happy little places. More than anything, I love a smiling bride in a shoot. (Brides smile – there’s nothing more beautiful to share on a blog, right?) Today we tick all the boxes because this is just such a dreamy, beautiful setting… over to lovely Kitty Wheeler Shaw Photography to tell you more:

When I started planning this shoot I knew that I didn’t just want to shoot a pretty girl in a pretty dress (as fun as that would be!), I wanted it to be a story. In the early stages I even wrote a back-story for my fictional couple, running away together to celebrate what a wedding is really all about, love!

Tis the season (as they say) for cosy snuggles and warm fires… and for staying indoors on those long evenings in the company of friends and loved ones. And I guess this applies just as much to weddings as it does to winter evenings at home. For Deborah and Mark, their winter wedding meant choosing the right venue was paramount. And boy, did they get it right…

Huntsham Court is a fabulous wedding venue - real wedding Jennifer Jane Photography (7)

Huntsham Court is wonderful. It’s an exclusive use, country house venue with 34 bedrooms and a super flexible approach to weddings. For today’s bride and groom it meant they could spend the whole weekend there along with friends and family – Huntsham is the loveliest home from home you could ever imagine.

An English country garden is a place of tranquility, beauty and soft, playful colour. Its charm has inspired thousands of weddings dating back many, many years – and for me the wonder of an English garden wedding theme will never fade. Sarah and Nick’s wedding uses the very best of country garden styling and adds personal, traditional touches to the theme: tea and china, Pimms, fairy cakes, croquet and bunting. It’s so perfect!

If I could take a polaroid of every bouquet we feature on the English Wedding Blog, and paper my little office & studio space with all of them it would just be soooo beautiful. Sometimes a gorgeous wedding inspires you to dream crazy things… but that’s ok, and I know we’re going to inspire you with some lovely ideas today. The flowers are only the beginning of this stunning day…

We wanted a wedding with a hint of vintage and a spring country feel. Most suppliers were recommended by Coombe Trenchard (marquee company, caterers, mobile bar). The band we sourced from Alive Network and Emma @ Freckle Photography was found by some extensive internet searching as photography was extremely important for us to get right!

Genna and Sean’s wedding is so, so beautiful! The venue was covered in flowers, fairy lights and hanging lanterns (all handmade with love), with special touches created on site, made lovingly by friends and family. The venue itself has scenery which surrounded the Ceremony and Reception, making it extra special!

“Words can’t describe how happy we are that we chose Evolve Photography to capture the special moments on our Wedding day! Mark was absolutely fantastic, and clearly extremely passionate, as well as very talented at what he does. This made the day, and photos extremely enjoyable, and meant that we were able to just relax and enjoy our day. Mark was also able to capture the essence of both of us, and our bridal party and groomsmen – allowing the fun that we were having to show through in our photos, which was fantastic! Our photos turned out better than we could imagined, and we would highly recommend Evolve Photography to anyone who can snap him up!

real wedding in Devon with images by Evolve Photography on the English Wedding Blog (12)

I absolutely must share some of Alice & Matt’s advice with you before we see their fabulous images. With every real wedding feature I always ask my brides and grooms to complete a little interview for the blog, and theirs is one of the very best I’ve ever received. The advice for you lovely lot is superb:

What’s the best thing about being married?

The knowledge that we have made a life long commitment to each other has further strengthened our relationship.
The comfort in knowing you are loved and loved back.
You’ve married your best friend.
Seeing the ring on his finger, and knowing I put it there, gives me butterflies every time.
