Today’s beautiful bride Sophie has given me some of the best quotes to use on the blog – and this is an all time favourite. The best thing about being married?The feeling of completeness, being absolute in the knowledge that you love one another unconditionally and that you are fully committed towards each other regardless of what life may throw at you.

Wonderful words and a heart-warming perspective – today’s wedding just happens to be deliciously pretty as well as meltingly romantic. I know you’ll love it as much as I do. This is a fabulous English country vintage wedding with oodles of inspiration and DIY ideas. Shilstone House even tried to buy Sophie’s handmade bunting after the big day… but the happy couple are keeping it for other family occasions (and what a lovely memory to have!) – that’s how lovely they made their day look!

Alice and Matt chose lots of delicate and pretty DIY touches for their beautiful Devon wedding. From the handmade bunting to the fantastic cheese cake, this is a wedding with a personal and loving atmosphere. I love how Alice and Matt wrote their table plan on the day of the wedding! – not recommended, as Alice says in her wedding report (towards the end of today’s feature) – but it proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to show your guests to their seats!

Wedding venue:

Shilstone House, Devon

Wedding photographer:

Dan Corbett. We cannot recommend Dan highly enough. Neither of us particularly likes posing for photos, and one of my pet wedding hates is a wedding photographer who dances around in the ceremony with a huge camera lens taking photos with a loud flash! Dan was perfect for us as he was the opposite of this! He was totally unobtrusive and the result is lots of lovely natural shots. http://storyandcolour.co.uk/

Simon and Lucie’s garden party wedding is amazing and then some! I adore this couple because they managed to balance everything so perfectly – it looks amazing, but the focus is still on family, friends and celebration. I’ve a feeling you’ll adore this wedding feature just as much as I do – it’s wonderful.

The images are beautiful, so I will let those speak for themselves. The wedding photographer is Mark from Evolve Photography in Devon – a lovely guy and a busy one as well… he’s getting married in a week or so to Natasha from Pumpkin and Pye! Good luck guys 🙂

Huge congratulations to the lovely Lucie and Simon, and thank you for sharing your day with us on the English Wedding Blog. It’s beautiful and your wedding report is heartwarming. I wish you both the very, very best for a wonderful future together!

The beauty of Beth and Matt’s wedding is captured in the photos you’re about to see on today’s blog post. They married in Exeter, with a reception in Exeter Castle… a venue I’ve never featured on English Wedding Blog before (why?!) and one with a rich and intriguing history.

Today’s wedding is beautiful, with lovely details and ideas for your own day. Beth and Matt describe their wedding style as ‘relaxed, simple and rustic’ – I’d say it’s perfect.

I loved the images of children playing which first caught my eye on wedding photographer Lucy Turnbull‘s blog – there are some wonderful moments here and I hope you’ll indulge me for sharing so many photos of the younger guests – I just thought they had a magical quality.

Enough of me – time to hand over to Beth and Matt to share their story, with photos by the lovely Lucy Turnbull Photography. Enjoy!

wedding blog UK Taylor Barnes Photography (13)
You are all making my heart melt this month with your proposal stories – truly, every real wedding blog submission is bringing me close to happy tears! Hannah and Dave’s wedding report begins with their own proposal story – and all I’ll say is: imagine how Hannah felt as that particular day unfolded. It’s wonderful!

Their wedding is another very special day full of love for family and friends, with a relaxed and deliriously happy feel to it – the wedding photographs from Taylor Barnes Photography (based in Bristol) really capture the emotions of the day (and some gorgeous details too!) – while Hannah and Dave’s wedding report captures the excitement and is guaranteed to bring a big soppy smile to your face! (I’m doing mine now!)

You’ll love this real wedding blog – with the most stunning bride in Maggie Sottero ‘Tracey’ and her adoring (and handsome!) groom who just doesn’t stop smiling all day – it’s an amazing day and I’m so glad to be sharing this wedding with you today.
