Classy rustic wedding styling at Dumbleton Hall with Oobaloos Photography (37)
FEATURED

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.”

Good morning beautiful! If you like flowers this is for YOU! Gorgeous, fun couple Steph and Rob’s beautifully relaxed Yorkshire wedding day was in two contrasting halves… with a city centre ceremony followed by a countryside reception full to the brim with country summer blooms! They chose a relaxed, vintage theme full of stunning summer flowers with such a gorgeous palette of colours – they’re perfect, and I just love everything about this wedding!

The Fleece Countryside Inn is gorgeous and didn’t need much to look incredible but we did have the help of the amazing Stems Design who did the majority of the styling and Set The Scene venue stylist who provided the table cloths and beautiful lace chair covers. The room looked incredible and I was blown away when I saw it for the first time – floral wonderland!

This Friday couldn’t come soon enough! I’ve been waiting to share this fabulous summer fete of a wedding with you – it’s gorgeous and exciting and makes me want to grab my festival glitter and celebrate something!!

Two things I love more than anything today: brides in red, and grooms doing wedding interviews. So boy am I happy to be sharing this beauty of an “East meets West” wedding full of gorgeousness and vibrant colours and fabulous florals… and I just know you’ll love it too! Siren is stunning in a traditional Chinese wedding dress (and her evening dress in a lush dark green is just fabulous) – and lovely husband Greg’s response to my “did you fall in love with your wedding dress” question [below] filled me with happy chuckling [he totally means yes btw!] Images are by English Wedding member and super Yorkshire wedding photographer Stevie Jay Photography. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

A friend of mine recommended Stevie to me while I was researching photographers in the run-up to the wedding. Both my wife and I really liked the way she was able to capture the atmosphere of moments in a natural way and found her style to be the best fit for what we wanted.

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.

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.

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!
