Gorgeous wedding details and moments to treasure, captured by Emily Black Photography (24)
FEATURED

Sometimes I save up my very favourite weddings for the weekend, so we can all spend a little longer browsing through all the gorgeous images and Pinning every stunning detail and idea. Today is one of those days… beautiful Farhaa and Ferd celebrated in style with a fabulously styled and gloriously photographed wedding at Ariana Gardens in Essex. Their photographer was the wonderfully talented Emily Black Photography, who is based in Hampshire. Grab a cuppa, get comfy and enjoy this beautiful Indian wedding with me…. and oh, wouldn’t a slice of this breathtaking cake be perfect right now?!

We chose a marble themed cake with a special topper saying “And so the adventure begins” as we are both quite adventurous it suited our personalities.

We had a stage area with a flower backdrop and two big cherry blossom trees on each side. We went for a floral theme and loved the idea of cherry blossoms. The venue had a tree growing inside and added that extra décor.

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Becky and Liam described their big day as like a big, summer children’s birthday party, with cricket! They included all the best things about summer: the outdoors, sunshine, cricket, Pimms, barbecued food, ice cream, children running around in the grass… and you know what? When a wedding is all about family and children it becomes SO much FUN!

Good morning, beautiful! How are you on this rather chilly October (!!) day? And can you even believe it’s properly autumn now? I know I can’t… but the best thing about autumn is all the fabulous weddings I’m seeing from lovely couples and photographers all around the country. This has to be the best time of year for wedding blogs, and I feel so lucky! Keep the submissions coming, guys!

Today we have an extraordinarily beautiful wedding, with stunning bride Amy and gorgeous groom Gerard, from Iscoyd Park. Lovely Michelle from Ritzy Events submitted this one, and Gerard and Amy have completed a brilliant interview telling us all about their day. Images are by international award winning wedding photographer Paulo Santos – who captures every moment beautifully and gets a glowing review from the happy couple!

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!

Relaxed and informal modern wedding in Leeds with Anna wood Photography (13)
FEATURED

You can hire a country manor, fill it with flowers and spend countless weeks cutting and pasting designs for your invites and table plan… but wedding blogs are here to show you you don’t have to do any of that. You can create a brilliantly amazing and memorable wedding your guests will love without all the bits people expect – just like gorgeous bride and groom Diane and Michael did. I love how they describe their day – the focus was on brilliant food and drink, making sure their guests were looked after, and choosing 3 fabulous venues for their ceremony, reception and evening party. I love it: the whole day looks and sounds just perfect – a wedding blogger’s dream!

We contacted Anna after seeing her ad on Facebook and we were not disappointed. Our first meeting was more like having a friend round for a brew than a meeting where We chatted about the day itself but really got to know more about each other. Advice we’d been given was to choose someone you get along with as your photographer as you spend a lot of time with them and Anna was so warm and genuinely excited by our wedding, she was the clear choice for us to share our day with.

Reams of bunting, oodles of delicious summer florals and a stunning couple make today’s blog the most beautiful thing you’ll see on the internet all day! We’re talking stunning English country garden style blooms with fabulous hydrangeas and a stunning BIG bouquet which our beautiful bride Jess held all day long 🙂 Being six months pregnant on the wedding day didn’t stop Jess from dancing the evening away – she’s absolutely gorgeous, as is Jake – these two are made for each other, you can just tell!

They celebrated at The Keeper and the Dell in Norfolk – a pretty natural environment for a summer wedding. A few extra special touches made the space their own – all the bunting, garlands, signage, handmade crochet blankets and table decorations really bring their wedding to life!

“The venue is a boho rustic venue anyway so foilage was plentiful and wooden crates, glassware and buildings were tasteful and not an eyesore.

I’ve seen about 1% of beautiful Northern Ireland – we have friends in Newcastle, and the tiny section of coastline I’ve seen is just wonderful. I’d love to explore more. Luckily via the blog I can… because today is one of the very best celebrations of love I’ve had the pleasure of sharing on English Wedding! Let’s escape to magical Dunluce Castle, on the northernmost tip of County Antrim, for gorgeous Emma and Simon’s breathtaking and romantic elopement!

The couple got ready together at home then went to Dunluce castle ruins for their ceremony. Emma wear’s a dress from Wtoo by Watters, and Simon’s jacket is from The Wedding Centre with trousers and shoes by River Island.  Emma’s bouquet is by Penelope Flowers. Some of my favourite shots are from Ballintoy Harbour, where the newlyweds headed to catch some last beautiful images before sunset. Photographer Luke says they had to climb a few fences and got a bit muddy but it was worth it – I couldn’t agree more!

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? I have to admit… I’ve been attacked by a horsefly and am typing with a right arm the size of one of my legs… eeeeekk!! I’m mainly wearing ice packs today! (Is it just me?!) Luckily I don’t particularly need my elbow to blog and bring you amazing weddings, and boy do we have something special to share today! I’ve been keeping gorgeous couple Becky and Sam up my sleeve for a few weeks now – their fabulously vintage, Great Gatsby inspired, home crafted, personal wedding at Crockwell Farm is definitely going down as one of my favourites of 2018 so far.

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re all really well and avoiding today’s rain!! I’m teaching a calligraphy workshop this afternoon, but before I go I have something really special for you today – a gorgeous wedding with striking and beautiful styling touches in a fabulous old mill. Gorgeous grooms Martin and Paul were married in the autumn, and chose The West Mill Venue for their ceremony and reception – and it’s just perfect. Unforgettably perfect, as the guys told me… and from the pics I couldn’t agree more.

These two rocked their day in the very best way imaginable. Their suits are from Australian tailors Oscar Hunt – and they’re gorgeous! I love the pale blue, teamed with autumnal brown and vibrant orange accents – they look amazing and the guys loved them! Styling touches include elegant vintage suitcases, vibrant autumn florals, effortlessly chic display areas with maps and the most adorable cake topper. I’d love to see Pinterest go crazy for this wedding – it’s a stunner and I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Kathie and Mike’s wedding is one of those glorious days which reminds me just what it’s all about. It’s not the colour palette or how many bridesmaids there are; it’s not the dress or the flowers in your hair – it’s the love, the laughter and the once-in-a-lifetime memories you’re making together. This is exceptionally beautiful, and grabbed my heart as soon as I saw the pics by our lovely friend Sheryl at Oobaloos Photography.

We kept things simple with cut flowers in bottles with some succulents for table decorations and then slightly more dramatic for the evening in the basement bar with hoops, cloches and lots of candles. Our flowers were by Emma at www.the-flower-girls.co.uk. She did a stunning job: romantic but simple, incorporating my favourite flowers and colours.

Mike’s a professional photographer and we knew we had high expectations when it came to our own wedding photography. For us it was about capturing those special informal moments, rather than the pressure of having to pose for shots. Sheryl’s gallery was full of relaxed looking couples who seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Happy Saturday everyone! I’m off adventuring today in Edinburgh – we have a bit of a crazy weekend ahead, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have an AMAZING wedding to share with you this morning as well. First though, I have to tell you about my next calligraphy workshop. This one will be on a Saturday afternoon in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, perfect for anyone (else!) who’d like to spend a girly day hitting the shops, learning calligraphy, then dancing the night away in my fave city. The date is May 26th, and you can book places in my Etsy shop now. I’d love to see you there!

Enjoy!   Claire xxx
