Hey lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Who else dug out their favourite jumpers this weekend? I’m loving feeling all snuggly in mine today!! We have a lovely week ahead on English Wedding with some gorgeous real weddings lined up, a stunning dress feature and expert tips on floral styling for barn weddings… but first, let’s start the week with something truly beautiful. Richard and Claire married at The Italian Villa in Poole last October. Claire looks super cute in her lovely Galina Couture gown which has to be one of the most amazing dresses we’ve ever seen on the blog! WOW!! The wedding is full of smiles and gorgeous styling which I hope you’ll love as much as I do!

Happy Monday lovelies! Just a handful of days to go now until my next calligraphy class in Manchester so it’s a crazy busy week here at English Wedding HQ! Today though, I have the most beautiful celebration to share with you – Lucy & Tim’s gorgeous wedding at 10 Castle Street, an exclusive country house venue in Dorset. Lucy’s Halfpenny London dress is just fabulous, and I love the atmosphere of the day which just comes across wonderfully well in the pics.

I totally fell in love with my dress. It was everything I wished for. I wanted my accessories to be statements as my dress was very simple. They’re my favourite things to purchase in general so this was the easiest part for me! I had a veil for the day and feather and diamante headband for the evening to add glamour. My shoes were the best! The had fur pom poms on the toes – I wanted to have a little signature of my style. Tim wore a stunning black three piece from Reiss, and my bridesmaids wore black jumpsuits made by my Mother. We wanted to keep attire monochrome!

I’m trying to get my head around the fact that it’s September already.. is it just me?! I’m excited to share some spine tingly pretty autumn weddings and styling inspiration on the blog throughout the month, as well as teaching my calligraphy workshops next week! I have a feeling September is going to be my favourite this year!!

We’re kicking off the month with a BEAUTIFUL wedding from the New Forest. Burley Manor is a new venue for me, but a spectacular one and surely one of Hampshire’s finest. Jo and Gavin are gorgeous together: I love seeing couples with a sparkle in their eyes and these two just have an amazing connection which jumps out in their pics. Their Burley Manor wedding photographer was our lovely friend and sponsor Linus Moran Photography, based in Dorset and covering Hampshire and nearby counties. Linus captures the day beautifully, telling Jo and Gavin’s wedding story through heartfelt moments and exquisite details.

There’s something about today’s beautiful wedding which captures the essence of the English countryside so perfectly… it’s in beautiful Dorset, with a quaint church (St Marks, in Talbot Village) and a lovely reception with the prettiest details – paper fans on the wall in shades of gold, and adorable little commemorative pins for all the guests!

Camila is absolutely stunning; Victor looks gorgeous. The love these two share is captured perfectly in the images by our friends at Linus Moran Photography, who are based in Dorset, close enough to the Kings Arms Christchurch to be regular photographers there – and who come highly recommended for their beautiful documentary wedding photography as well as their professionalism and friendliness.

I am SO pleased it’s the weekend! I’ve had my nose buried in handwritten invites for an American wedding this week, all while I teach myself how to do Instagram stories (I’m so late, I know!) – and today I’m road tripping down to Manchester with my man to play at escape rooms and hang out with three of my favourite people in the world. In the meantime… this gorgeous wedding editorial is insanely beautiful and full of lush florals in a refreshingly different colour palette. I think you’ll love it…

Images are by our old friend Greg from TP Photography in Dorset – they capture the details and atmosphere of the shoot so beautifully, don’t you think? Lovely Oonagh from The English Florist created a floral chandelier, table centrepieces, buttonholes and breathtaking bouquets with Icelandic poppies, ranunculus, ‘Panda’ anemones and white O’Hara roses. I’ll hand over to Oonagh to tell us a little about the inspiration and styling ideas – and the wonderful venue (which I hadn’t heard of before – and which totally has my heart!)…

I wanted to share a really pretty wedding with you all today – something elegant and graceful, with a wonderful sense of English charm and tranquility – and I couldn’t think of a lovelier wedding than Christie and Ben’s day. Christie is so very beautiful – a Devon bride whose timeless style reminds me of Audrey Hepburn – with Ben her perfectly handsome leading man. They married at Symondsbury Tithe Barn and chose lovely Linus Moran Photography to capture their day.

“On the day, keep making time for each other. Ben and I kept stealing moments where we would find a quiet spot to soak in the view of our wedding, hold hands, kiss and share tales!

I’ve heard people say nothing changes when you get married. I disagree – there’s a monumental shift and it’s a wonderful one. I love being married. I love hearing Ben introduce me proudly as his wife.

Today’s wedding is a blissfully sunny treat for your eyes… the images on the bridge are just so incredible, the light, the beautiful bride and groom – it has everything, it really does. I hope you love today’s wedding blog as much as I do – what a wonderful location with beautiful imagery!

“Spend as much time together as possible on your wedding day – it goes so fast and it’s filled with so much love from everyone around you its easy to miss out a quite few moments alone together.

The best thing about being married is that you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend. Who could ask for more?”

My nan did our flowers for us and they were amazing. We felt so lucky to have her and all our family and friends have such a big part in our day.

A bouquet doesn’t have to be ‘just flowers’. The bouquets I love most are full of foliage, textures, berries… And a bouquet which is seasonal is the loveliest of all. In the colder months that means silvery leaves, delicate white berries, seedheads and a few choice blooms… Agnieszka’s is one of the loveliest autumn bouquets I’ve seen. And isn’t she a beautiful bride?

Today’s wedding also surprised me with the knowledge that the army has a motorbike display team, who ride vintage bikes and perform stunts at shows around the country! (Check out the bus!) – and while he didn’t bring his bike, groom Simon looks fab in true military style.

I adore Pippa’s dress – she’s such a beautiful bride. Dick is fantastic – his character shines through in every image and makes the day a true favourite for me. There’s nothing like the spirit of summer to brighten a November day, right?

How did you choose your photographer?

We looked online at a few different photographers and got in touch with Linus. We loved Oana’s photos that Linus sent us so we decided to go with her.

Annie and Sam are gorgeous! Their day is just the perfect English wedding – celebrating love in a magnificent venue, surrounded by history and character and by everyone they love. Today’s is a wedding where elegant touches are carefully considered – Annie’s dress is divine, her flowers simple but with intriguing, delicate little tendrils of foliage. And the wonder, the essence of the day comes from Dorset’s beautiful Athelhampton House.

“The day was a joy and creatively refreshing. A familiar venue, a great couple and new artistic opportunities… Being a relatively small wedding, we were lucky to have more time to devote to some relaxed portraits around the grounds. Avoiding as far as possible clichéd locations, we were looking for something new and fresh. Low perspectives won through, shooting through ground covering cyclamens, reflections in pools and finding new walk ways away from the house!” ~ Linus Moran

Almost every morning you’ll find me on the beach, or in the hills gazing down at the estuary below the village where I live. I have a thing for beach weddings – they’re the most amazing thing ever! I love the portraits of Michael & Sara, especially the black & white images on the sand… they’re gorgeous and this is incredible!

Photographers Emily & Steve told me “The Grand Hotel in Swanage is perched right on a cliff with steps down to the beach! It was stunning and the perfect location for a summer wedding. It was the first wedding we’ve been to where the guests suddenly started to serenade the couple with ‘Love is all around’. They were all swaying their arms and really getting into it! It was so much fun!”

My dress was in the first shop I went to and I hadn’t ever seen a wedding dress similar to it. I liked the front with a bit of sparkle but fell in love with the back with the cowel back, buttons and train. I did go to another shop to have a look but there was nothing anywhere near as beautiful so rushed straight back to Village Brides to buy it.

I love today’s real wedding blog – the peonies, the lens flare, the castle… the details are simple but the overall look is so elegant and beautiful. And Lulworth Castle is fabulous… the interior is perfectly imperfect and would lend itself to a modern, almost urban wedding style as gracefully as it does to today’s wonderfully feminine & romantic theme…

Castle wedding in Dorset at Lulworth Castle with Jodie Cooling Photography (34)

“The wedding flowers were pink peonies, gypsophilia, all very pretty and pink! We went for tall table arrangements at the castle as it helped to draw the eye upwards into the beautiful building. Our florist was Christine Browne of Floral Arts in Weymouth, she knows the castle inside out so knew what would work. Pink peonies were really my only request and although we discussed it all, we left it to her to do a great job for us. Trust them – they know what works!”
