Devon wedding blog at Cadhay Estate with Jennifer Jane Photography (9)

The venue is Cadhay, a unique Devon wedding venue in Ottery St Mary in the heart of rural East Devon. The beautiful and historic Elizabethan manor house is a luxurious home from home, offering exclusive use and accommodation as well as charming and welcoming rooms for civil ceremonies.

Coco Chanel said “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance” – and today’s wedding is simply perfect.

Cadhay was decorated with the most beautiful country garden flowers in jars and  vases by In Bloom. Jane wore a beautiful ivory dress from La Bella Bridal  while Jon was wearing a dashing blue suit by Hugo Boss of Dukes and looked very handsome indeed.

Emerald is my birthstone, and green has always been my favourite colour – as a nature lover I adore weddings with tons of green foliage and styling touches. Emma and Steve chose shades of green to style their day at the fabulous Deer Park Country House Hotel in Honiton, Devon. Their wedding is simple, elegant and understated – and the bride and groom are gorgeous.

Emma and Steve chose September for their wedding and were blessed with glorious blue skies and sunshine – just perfect for the Deer Park Country House Hotel, which boasts over 80 acres of wild flower meadows, woodland walks and manicured lawns for you and your guests to explore.

The colour scheme for the day was simple: green and white / ivory with thoughtful little touches dotted around the venue. Bouquets are traditional, with white roses the statement flower of the day. I really hope you love this wedding – it’s everything a wedding should be, and that all comes down to the beautiful bride and groom, and those wonderful smiles which last all day long. Claire

Today’s wedding is so, so perfect… it’s full of laughter and love, with the loveliest styling and decor… and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. I can’t think of a better way to begin our week, can you?!

Somerset wedding blog Jade Nott Photography (27)

The flowers are by Kate at Windmill Farm Flowers. Nicola told me they were “the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. So perfect and effective.” The naked cake fitted the wedding style so well – and the decoration is fabulous. It was made by the Exclusive Cake Company, Dulverton.

The styling of the venue involved family and friends: “My Maid of Honour made us some beautiful bunting which we hung in the Barn. we made the venue look our own which was really important. The Groom and his groomsmen were amazing and did alot of the dressing of the venue which I loved.”

“We did homemade confetti which all of my beautiful bridemaids helped with. We put them into personalised bags. it was lovely. We had homemade bunting, and sweetbags and the favours were biscuits with tea!”

Emily and Max are just gorgeous – their wedding is the perfect combination of grace and sophistication with fun and a relaxed atmosphere. I love how the spirit of their day totally comes across in their fabulous photos. The DIY details are super too!

Max is from France and when he and Emily met, they hardly spoke a word of each other’s language. The spark between them must have been fantastic despite the language barrier, as they both took in upon themselves to learn each other’s language!

I’m head over heels in love with Josie and Gareth’s countryside wedding… the photos are fabulous, the location is stunning, I think every detail is perfect. Josie is just so beautiful and Gareth looks fantastic. I adore the heather, the bouquet is amaaaaaazing, the orders of service are gorgeous…. what’s not to love?

The theme for the day was rustic countryside with spectacular tipis and local flowers and food. Josie told me she got a lot of inspiration from wedding blogs and pinterest but choose wedding suppliers through research and recommendations.

Rachael and Ashley chose the most amazing location for their wedding – Torre Abbey is a Devon landmark with a rich history and fabulous sea views… and I fell in love with the breathtaking landscapes as soon as I saw this gorgeous couple’s wedding gallery.

Rachael and Ashley chose the Spanish barn at Torre Abbey for their wedding and reception. The space is decorated with a starry canopy of fairy lights set in contrast to the dark oak beams – and with the spikes of greenery and those fabulous narrow windows the barn looks just wonderful.

Jennifer took the newlyweds to Thatcher Rock for a moment or two to enjoy each other’s company. The portraits from this part of the day are some of my favourites. The lightness of the seascape, the unmistakeable location and the romance of the Devon coast are what make this wedding so wonderfully unique and special.

Kristian told me, “I went to college with the Groom’s brother many years ago, and we both encouraged each other through our early phases into photography, so it meant a lot to reacquaint myself with his family and capture Tim’s wedding.  The whole day was incredibly relaxed, with a beautiful outdoor ceremony near the lake. And any couple that has their First Dance to the Baywatch theme tune is going to have a special place in my heart!

Do you remember the moment one of you said yes? When suddenly you’d made that first step towards a lifetime together, and your heart was fit to burst with being so much in love? Stepping from being just a couple head over heels in love and enjoying every small adventure together, into planning a wedding can be… daunting. It’s so, so important to keep making amazing memories as you plan your wedding – and I think an engagement shoot is the perfect way to capture some of the romance and excitement of your pre-wedding months.

There are many, many reasons to have a photoshoot before your wedding. It’s a great way to get to know your photographer, relax in front of the camera, perhaps explore your venue  or just have a fun day out.

Ben and Nancy’s Devon wedding has some of those breathtaking images you’ll only ever see at country weddings. Their church is fabulous – I’d so love to see it for real!  I adore the landscapes, the bride and groom are gorgeous and Nancy’s bouquet is out of this world. I also spotted some little feather details on the tables, which look wonderful – this is a really gorgeous wedding and I am so excited to share it with you all today.

Anna from Luna Photography told me, “The day was memorable for us because Ben & Nancy were so much fun to work with, and we loved the guests’ reaction to the church! The venues were dreamlike, Brentor Church has always been somewhere we wanted to shoot a wedding, when Nancy initially got in touch we couldn’t have been more excited! Twinned with Coombe Trenchard it was absolutely perfect, you can even see Brentor high on the hill from the gardens at Coombe Trenchard which was perfect. We loved the reception venue as there was so much scope for beautiful venues, and the owner, Sarah, could not have been more accommodating.”

Hey there, beautiful! Are you near a window… can you take a second to look up and see nothing but glorious blue sky? It’s been the loveliest day here by the seaside, and I couldn’t think of anything nicer than to finish such a perfect afternoon with some stunning photography by Jennifer Jane. You may remember Sally & Matt’s wedding – captured by lovely Jennifer. I’ve since become a real admirer of Jennifer Jane Photography and I’m delighted to be able to introduce her as a sponsor of the English Wedding Blog.

Happy Friday everyone! Come to sunny Devon for today’s gorgeous art deco wedding in an insanely amazing venue. Cherry and Myles chose the stunning Burgh Island Hotel for their reception, and it set the scene for an incredibly beautiful, chic and art deco wedding day.

“We tried our very best to find suppliers local to either our home in Cardiff or from our wedding location in Devon, as we are very keen on supporting local businesses.  We looked at wedding magazines, local wedding blogs and pinterest for most of our ideas and then found most of our contacts at local wedding fairs or via the recommendation of family and friends.”

Burgh Island hotel English wedding blog Lucy Wallace Photography (32)

“The venue was so exquisite, no additional styling was necessary.  All we added was a few personal touches and a vase of flowers per table, created by [our florist] Sally.  Burgh Island Hotel is an absolutely exceptional venue, with incredible scenery and exquisite décor… to have tried to add further decoration would have been completely superfluous and would have detracted from its charm.”

“It was 1 oclock in the morning.  Aaron was asleep, but I couldn’t resist.  Mark had posted them on Facebook.  I was secretly looking at them under the sheets…”

Wedding photos are a special thing – a treasure you’ll keep forever, share amongst your family and through the generations. They’re the loveliest reminder of your day and I love hearing your reactions to seeing them for the first time – today’s beautiful bride Emily made me smile when she told me she’d peeked before hubby Aaron saw them!

This is a gorgeous wedding from Huntsham Court in Devon. Emily told me, “Everything had a personal touch. We wanted as many people as possible, from family and friends, involved in creating the day, from videographer, to DJs, to designing the outfits and accessories.”

I fell in love with so many of those details, from the venue itself to the flowers, the little hints of London and the gorgeous red accent colours throughout. Emily’s Jane Bourvis dress is stunning – she looks more than amazing and so does her gorgeous hubby. This is one of my favourite images from the day…
