So this wedding is pretty epic. I just know you’re going to love it – Claire and J-D make the coolest couple ever, and with the extraordinary creative contributions from family they put on a wedding which is everything. The flowers are glorious, Claire’s dress is stunning, J-D’s outfit is brilliant and inspired, and the photography exquisite. Grab a cuppa, snuggle down and enjoy this beauty of a summer wedding.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We both knew we wanted natural, unposed shots – neither of us are at our best in posed, traditional photos. Our favourite photos are spontaneous and capture a moment. We spent an afternoon browsing Oxford wedding photographer websites looking for photos with this quality. We loved the photos in Dale’s portfolio. We arranged to meet him to make sure we felt relaxed. We had such a perfect morning meeting Dale that we booked immediately.

It feels like summer when I look at today’s wedding – I’m beaming back at my screen and totally head over heels in love with the images of Josie and Joe’s day. It was a super hot day; their tipis provided beautiful shade and the styling and florals create the perfect summer vibe. Josie is resplendent in a delicately patterned lace dress by Agnes; Joe’s tweed suit says English country gent to a T! I LOVE the sunflower signage, the DIY elements and the glorious summer vibe of their wedding – and of course the joyful images by Benjamin Wetherall Photography. I just know you’ll adore this one too!

How did you choose your photographer?

We already knew Ben as he’s a very good friend, but if anything this nearly stopped us from asking him to be our photographer, as we wanted him to be a guest and enjoy the day too. However, we’d been lucky enough to have been guests at a few events he has worked at and we love his style. His photos are always incredible so we knew we’d regret it if we didn’t ask him to photograph our wedding. It was so good to not have to worry about this element of the day, as we had total trust in Ben and his organisation, professionalism and of course photos.

Jenny and Ben’s August wedding is instantly a favourite for me – they’re the loveliest, sweetest couple and their day just rocks my wedding bloggy WORLD!! There are some wonderful ideas I just know you’ll love – aside from the hundreds of pom poms, there’s a mobile gin factory on a VW camper van with jars of spices and copper pots to make your very own wedding gin right there on the day – genius. There are sunflowers and pinwheels in a rainbow of colours, along with fairy lights everywhere, and fabulous vintage style tea length dresses, and GLORIOUS florals – it’s just everything. Jenny looks stunning in her Brighton Belle dress. Ben’s relaxed look gets a huge YES from me: suits are not obligatory for weddings, guys! He looks fab – and more than anything, the happiness between these two is infectious. They describe their day as “a colourful rustic, vintage, craft collaboration with a gin twist!”

Today’s wedding is wonderfully sunny and warm, beautifully styled and sooo romantic – it’s absolutely wonderful and I’ve been so excited to share this with you! Gorgeous couple Amy and Niall were married in Somerset, and styled their day around their backgrounds: as Amy is from Yorkshire and Niall is from Wales they incorporated both of these into their day.

They chose the tythe barn at Priston Mill as their wedding venue, and our lovely friend Priston Mill wedding photographer Martin Dabek to capture their day. So grab a cuppa and join us as we enjoy scrolling through the beautiful photographs of this rustic, relaxed, natural wedding day, full of love and laughter!

Hey lovelies! Welcome to Monday… and to a fabulous festival wedding in June at Northside Farm, Northumberland. This is a beautiful barn venue with glamping huts & tipis for brides, grooms and guests can stay in. Gorgeous bride Laura and dapper hubby Daryl enjoy their festivals, and with TONS of wonderful handcrafting. Laura worked on her wedding stationery almost every night for a YEAR! She also learned how to crochet so she could make blankets for her guest in case they got cold in the evening! Laura describes their wedding as “3 days of pure joy and happiness” – and it shows in the pics. I hope you love all these ideas as much as I do!

“From before we were even engaged I had the theme of our wedding picked out. Daryl and I enjoy a festival and we knew we wanted to have a wedding over the full weekend and spend as much time celebrating with all our family and friends. (I’m the kind of person who has a birth month not a birthday) The wedding venue (Northside Farm) allowed us to do just that in a beautiful setting. They were very laid back like us and just let us do our thing.”

You can’t beat a wedding with a really fun story. Lovely Jade and Carl invited all of their guests to their children’s christening – and surprised them with an extra: they got MARRIED!! It makes the photos of the beginning of the day even more special, knowing that for most of the guests, the whole thing was a secret surprise!

Images are by lovely Fiona at Anoif Photography, who gets a fabulous review from Jade and Carl in their interview (at the end of the blog post). Photography was the couple’s biggest spend, and one they’re very glad of – for while this was very much a DIY wedding on a budget, the images will last a lifetime and I love the piece of family history they’ve captured for our lovely bride and groom!

Have you ever wondered how wedding planners and stylists get married? Me too! Today I’m thrilled to say we have all the answers, as lovely Lauren and David are sharing their stunning Wiltshire wedding on the English Wedding blog today. Lauren is the owner of Lauren Alexander Weddings – she’s also an English Wedding reader and has shared some fantastic tips with us in a brilliant interview (which carries on beneath all of the beautiful photographs).

There are stunning styling touches as well – plenty of DIY ideas and the FUNNEST and most gorgeous wedding shoes! I just know you’ll love this! Over to Lauren… 

Stunning wedding at Larmer Tree Gardens, with Ben Goode Photography on English-Wedding.com (24)

“I used English Wedding a lot for inspiration for our wedding and within my wedding planning and styling business.  Our reception is set in the gorgeous Larmer Tree Gardens, a Victorian pleasure garden, and we got married in a lovely rustic and small village church in Milton on Stour. We used local suppliers to the area as we thought it was so important, but at the same time we also did a fair amount on our own too.”

A fabulous tipi celebration in the height of summer. A gorgeous, relaxed and head-over-heels in love couple. Rustic styling, tons of florals, vibrant colours and a party atmosphere. It really doesn’t get much better than this! Howard and Rowena’s wedding venue was the village field in Iwerne Minster, the village where Rowena’s mother lives. By day the field is a football pitch and on a sunny day in August it was transformed with the addition of tipis into their wedding venue! I hope you love this one as much as I do. Huge thanks to Rowena and Howard, and to our fabulous friend and Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad Photography. Do read the groom’s interview below – the story of their day is fantastic!

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re having a fabulous week. Is it summer anywhere in the UK right now? We drove from Somerset up to Cumbria yesterday with the car heater on all the way – where’s our sunshine?!! Today though, I have a lovely spring wedding to brighten your screens and lift all of our hearts. Gorgeous couple Chloe & Dan tied the knot in Cornwall, with their two adorable pooches as ring bearers on the day. Their wedding is a DIY affair with 400 (I know, right!!) handmade pom poms (by the bride) instead of confetti, a sparkly fairy light table plan and plenty of rustic touches to really make this a special and personal wedding.

The venue is The Green in Liskeard, Cornwall, where Mark from Evolve Photography is a recommended wedding photographer. Chloe and Dan very kindly told us a little about their day:

Gorgeous couple Emily & Harry tied the knot at Sharpham House in Devon last May. Theirs was a wonderfully relaxed, country style wedding with plenty of wildflowers – and truly, the floral styling is breathtaking! Harry’s mum arranged all of the flowers with help from family and friends. Emily told me she worked tirelessly in the run up to the wedding and in particular the day before to make everything look so beautiful.

“We went to a wholesale flower seller in Cornwall to purchase all of the flowers and used wildflowers in her garden to help decorate the tables. We had plenty of green foliage to bulk out the flowers and also add colour. In my bouquet were pale pink peonies, blue delphiniums, white freshias and green foliage. The wildflowers on the tables included buttercups and bluebells. We also used plenty of cow parsley and eucalyptus to decorate the venue!

The venue itself is a beautiful old house, so we didn’t need a large amount of decoration. We added a few touches here and there to make it look more festive and like a wedding!

Today’s wedding is everything. I love it – I love the atmosphere in the pics, the excitement (and the nerves) and the celebration and love. The styling is fabulous; it’s elegant with quirky touches. Emma and Paul are gorgeous and their day just totally ROCKS. The weather didn’t quite play ball: check out the “dramatic” October skies over Dumbleton Hall (and – spoiler alert – the rainbow, which obviously brought a few raindrops along with it!)

The images by my fabulously creative and talented friend Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography are literally stunning. You’ll be wanting to grab a cuppa and snuggle down somewhere comfy to scroll all the way through this one! Enjoy.

Dumbleton Hall near Evesham is a 19th-century Cotswold stone manor house set in many acres of gardens. The picturesque lake and black swans were the icing on the cake for Emma and Paul. “It was dreamy and had so much character. Staff were so thoughtful, supportive and friendly. Our guests praised how well staffed the venue was for getting drinks and serving our wedding breakfast. Everything throughout the day went so smoothly with them.”
