Catherine and Florent’s destination wedding in France looks like a dream come true. The gorgeous bride and groom travelled to the south-east of France, to a fairytale venue with views of the distant mountains, for their beautiful, intimate summer wedding. I adore the light, bright colours they used to style their day: mint and delicate pink are so fresh and summery – and the images by English Wedding Blog sponsor Amanda Karen Photography are out of this world.

We searched online for a photographer who was willing to travel. We fell in love with Amanda and Hutch’s style of photography. They had taking wedding photos in France and in a chateau in their bucket list, which is exactly what we were planning for our wedding, so it was a perfect match. After meeting Amanda, and seeing how lovely she was, we were thrilled to choose them as our photographers.

Nothing quite beats the warmth of a tipi wedding – and Sarah and Matthew used theirs as the focal point for a festival-style celebration on the family farm. The little touches and flowers are gorgeous; but the loveliest thing about today’s wedding is Sarah – she’s so beautiful in a blush pink gown which just suits the day perfectly (and is amazing for dancing in!)

We opted to have fairy lights within our tipi and we didn’t want to distract too much from how beautiful the tipi and more importantly, the view from the field was. We used lots of items from the farm including milk churns, troughs, tractor tyres and hay bales to add to the rustic farm feel. We were lucky to be able to find a tipi company for our bank holiday weekend in County Marquees East Anglia. They were great and also helped us with outdoor furniture sets, a bar front, outdoor fire bowls and were on hand with generators and mobile toilets should we have needed them

I just love today’s real wedding – a pretty marquee in a Herefordshire field, sublime florals and a wonderful atmosphere of love, family and pure joy! Beautiful Lucy looks stunning in her House of Vintage dress, and the handcrafted details and gorgeous contributions from friends and family make this one of my favourite summer weddings ever.

We basically had a field to start, so as you can imagine, it took a huge amount of effort and time to get it wedding event ready! One element that I was really desperate to incorporate was a decorated old trailer of dad’s. After some haggling and negotiation about which particular piece of machinery we would use, we filled a trailer with flowers, bunting and fairylights and put a ‘love’ sign in the centre, which one of my cousins who is a carpenter made. This could be then used as a DIY photo booth and also as something to play on for all of the children who were at our wedding!

Autumn wedding styling isn’t all about the pine cones, you know. I get it: they’re cute little things, with a dash of childhood nostalgia attached… but I think after years upon years of pine cone wedding styling they’re about to be pushed from the top spot – by the humble gourd!

Vibrant autumn colours and tons of styling ideas for a Notley Barn wedding with Amanda Karen Photography (22)

So many wedding traditions and styling ideas start in the US and gradually make their way over here. With all the budding excitement of Hallowe’en they start their pumpkins early over there… and the mini versions (gourds is a catch-all term for anything pumpkinesque, in my simple mind!) are colourful, cute and charming as hell. I love how Kate and Ali used them to style their day.

Kate and Ali got married at Notley Tythe Barn in Oxfordshire with a family friend working as a set designer lending her creativity and a very talented Mother of the Bride making the wedding cake for the happy couple. The bride and bridesmaids look stunning with bouquets in pastel tones and dresses in shades of dusky pink; copper and bronze accent colours hint at the fabulous styling of the reception venue and capture the spirit of autumn days.

Here’s something wonderful for all of you autumn brides and grooms – a wedding full of warm styling touches and golden sunshine. I adore the portraits of the happy couple under the turning leaves; Hannah is so beautiful and radiant in the most delicate lace detailed wedding dress, and the candles and cake table are just perfect for the season. (Three wedding cakes – chocolate brownie, cheese and pork pie!!! Love this!)

When I arrived in the morning it looked like we were in for a chilly and foggy autum day, there were clouds and fog and it had rained the day before so I didn’t have high hopes for the weather that day. Fortunately the Orangery at De Vere Tortworth Court is essentially a huge green house so even on the darkest of days there is plenty of light.

The details and styling of Camilla and Richard’s day are just so perfect – this is wedding blog gold with so much inspiration for you lovely lot… and a day simmering with romance and love which just melts my wedding blogger heart every time I see it! Our bride and groom are breathtakingly gorgeous, and their day has to be one of the loveliest I’ve seen all year. I hope you love it too!

Hannah’s wedding to Angus is so very pretty – the artistic styling touches are wonderful and give their day a unique look which I adore. The colour palette is fabulous, and I’ve fallen head over heels for their delicate floral arrangements. They married in Yorkshire back in June, and took their county as inspiration for the theme of their day. I love this!

We made all our wedding stationery. A very talented friend of ours had drawn a beautiful picture of us, which we soon adopted as our ‘wedding logo’. We used this when designing our invitations, order of service, table and place name cards, and more!

I researched online- I’d looked at a few different photographers’ websites, but saw Anna’s on Facebook and was really impressed. Her photos were of such a great quality and her prices were the most reasonable I’d found. I messaged her and she arranged to meet us to answer our questions, gather more information and to create a picture of how the photography would work on the day. We got on really well and we were so happy with what she was saying, after that meeting we booked her!

Whenever I look at Jess and Martin’s wedding pictures I find myself smiling right back at the screen. Jess is beautiful; her smile infectious. Their day is full of lovely moments and the prettiest details – and bursts of colour with sunflowers and summer flowers to make my heart sing!

I (Jess) went to a wedding fayre in London with my mum and we bumped into Amanda and James. I loved their style of photography and after chatting to James, I instantly knew they were the photographer for us and they truly were.

Amanda and James are just brilliant, there aren’t enough positive words to describe them. We met for a pre-wedding shoot and they instantly put us at ease. On the day Amanda photographed the bridal party and it felt like she was one of the girls! Amanda and James blended in with our guests and their style of photography is fantastic.
The first time we saw our wedding photos we were absolutely blown away. Amanda and James managed to capture the happiness, magic and details of the day. When we look through our photos it’s like reliving our special day all over again!

Canals have a romance all of their very own, don’t you think? If you’ve ever strolled along a canal before sunset you’ll know how wonderfully tranquil those towpaths can be. The adventure of drifting through England’s hidden waterways is one I dream of experiencing, one day. So Heather and Michael’s day has my heart: their photos by the locks are beautiful; their tipi reception is full of character and quaint old English charm – it’s perfect.

“The ceremony was held in a very low key structure next to a canal in Leicestershire with the reception in the tipi next to it. The venue is fairly new and quite quirky with narrow boats passing by and a bar that looks like a moored up boat.

Heather made all the decor herself and it was lovely. Heather and Michael are expecting a baby so the day was full of lots of lovely emotional moments, which wedding photographer Helen King captures beautifully in the images.

Village hall wedding styling ideas from Northumberland with Andy Hudson Photography (5)

If you’ve ever lived in a little English village, you’ll get how perfectly these images capture the spirit of such a place. I’m a village girl – I grew up in a tiny Cumbrian village, moved away, moved back to another Cumbrian village and put roots down here – I just love village life! So Clare and Phil’s day leapt out from all of the submissions in my inbox for today’s real wedding feature. My fave pic is the one with the whole bridal party sat by the wall… it reminds me of the lyrics to Pulp’s Disco 2000…

“Clare & Phil were married in Clare’s home village of Felton, a small rural village about 10 miles outside of Alnwick in Northumberland.  They had their ceremony at the local church before moving to the village hall for their reception.

I love all the thought and time Jess put into styling her wedding to Antony! The detail of her dress and hairpiece are so pretty; I adore the bunting too. Everything about this day sings of summer, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do! Have a glorious day, everyone!

“The wedding was all my brainchild. It was as much as a surprise to Antony on the day as it was with everybody else. Luckily I had time 2 and half years of planning time which was important to me as I wanted to be involved in every process! It started with a mood board on Pinterest, lots and lots of car boot sale and charity shop trips hunting for tea cups and saucers, craft weekends and days spend tackling the Amazon which was my inlaws’ garden. I can’t take all the credit: I have a fantastic family who helped make my dream come true. In particular my mother in law who spent hours and hours shopping, painting and gluing!

Thistles and kilts for a Scottish themed wedding in Penrith, with Jessica Lang Photography (12)

Today’s wedding is wonderful. A glorious mix of Lakeland and Scottish styling touches, with home grown flowers (all of them – isn’t that amazing?!), DIY details and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. The venue is lovely Askham Hall, which looks fabulous and has the most incredible gardens for outdoor shots. I think my fave thing about Cally and Colin’s wedding is all the help they had from friends and family to bring their day together, and all the personal touches – an heirloom kilt; hand painted table names; oh! and a genius idea of a song from the best men which Cally explains in her interview below. You’ll love this…

A friend and colleague recommended Jess, then we met and viewed her portfolio and loved the natural, candid shots and gorgeous scenery. Jess seemed able to capture the best of every aspect in her photographs, and her relaxed and bubbly demeanour put us instantly at ease. We knew straight away that she was the right photographer for us.
