If I could feature a non-traditional wedding like this every single day, I would! The joyful air of celebration, the colour, the smiles, the fun from the very beginning until the very last sparkler twinkles out… and the cutest pooches on the planet! It’s all here. It’s wedding blog heaven, right here, today, and it’s all for you! Gorgeous bride and groom Alicia and Dan married last summer and their festival wedding is EPIC. The photos speak for themselves – but keep scrolling to find out all about their day including some brilliant Fieldgood Bar wedding suppliers for you to jot down.

With love,

I may overuse the word epic to describe the weddings I feature on here. Today’s though… well it feels as though epic doesn’t come close. So I’m bringing you Lily & Gareth’s spectacularly legendary wedding which I have a feeling will knock you off your FEET! This gorgeous pair made their day individual, full of joy and colour, stuffed it with bags of personality and left me reeling in a rainbow of glorious images. Lily’s dress is by our favourite Jo Fleming – and it is literally the most beautiful creation I’ve seen any bride wearing, ever.

You’re going to LOVE this, I promise!

Through some extensive web research and then through recommendations from other photographers who were unavailable.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Yes. Marta and Artur are an amazing couple and go above and beyond to get what you want from your pics. We didn’t want any set up / formal pics, but more a photographer who would capture the atmosphere of the day. Artur definitely did that! Our main thing we wanted was for everyone to have fun, and the photos captured that perfectly.

Happy Sunday, lovelies! I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing (if blustery!) weekend, and managing to take a little time for self-care today. It’s been a funny old week with the blog – my inbox is bursting with joyful and beautiful images, and I’ve spent every day chasing my tail… so I wanted to end the week with one of the loveliest shoots I’ve seen all year. This one was sent in by lovely Weddings by Emma Louise, a supremely talented stylist and wedding planner whose love of nature shines through in this sublime collection of images. I will leave you with Emma to talk you through this breathtakingly beautiful springtime wedding styling feature.

With love,

Welcome to (nearly) the weekend, everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed a little sunshine this week, and are staying safe and well. I’ve been saving up the beautiful wedding of Charles and Emily, which is wonderfully elegant and timeless. The newlyweds are gorgeous: they were married in June at St Giles House in Dorset, with Camilla Arnhold capturing their day. The cake and flowers are just stunning – and the pair look fabulous in a Jesus Peiro dress and tailored suit from Reiss. Enjoy this, lovelies, and have a relaxing weekend.

With love,

We chose our photographer from social media, searching the term ‘Wedding photographer Dorset’ in instagram. A range of photographers came up, including Camilla’s, and we were instantly drawn to her beautiful work.

We were extremely pleased with Camilla and her work. She captured every detail we wanted including special moments with family and friends. Her style was exactly what we had hoped for and more.

When Jonathan emailed me and mentioned “the coolest wedding dress ever” I was hooked! This is a beaut of a wedding: full of fun, colour and the most wonderful DIY details. Jade & Matt tied the knot at Newland Bishop Farm in May, with a festival themed day and a tipi reception. There were space hoppers, pom poms, blasts of colour EVERYWHERE, a picnic… a totally chilled out wedding. Photographer Jonathan – JS Coates Wedding Photography – described Jade & Matt’s day as “a burst of colour and smiles”. Just what we need on our screens right now, I think!

We had searched through tonnes of pics of wedding shots on instagram and immediately fell in love with Jonathan’s pictures. They were amazing and we knew that he was the one for us! They were timeless and yet very modern, with a relaxed vibe… we hate formal shots!

Happy Monday, beautiful! I have the most wonderful wedding to share with you today, from Whitney Court in Herefordshire. The colours and style are elegant and warming – Matt and Liz used navy and gold, to create a cosy, candlelit, autumnal wedding – and it is just stunning, from the overall atmosphere of the day through to the tiniest little details. The flowers by Les Fleurs are exquisite, Liz’s Ted Baker dress is out of this world – with Matt her perfect match in a Ted Baker suit – and the reception is styled so beautiful it takes my breath away. It’s no surprise that Liz is a wedding stylist, and I’m delighted to say Elizabeth Weddings is also a member of English Wedding – you’ll find her in our wedding supplier directory, and at https://elizabethweddings.co.uk (where her clients’ fabulous reviews say it all!).

I’d marry these two myself… gorgeous Martha & Phil had the most joyful, character-filled, fun and beautiful wedding at Bruisyard. They say the LOVELIEST things about their wedding suppliers – lovely Emily Tyler Photography gets a glowing and heartfelt review from the happy couple. They’ve also recommended a huge list of Suffolk wedding suppliers from personal experience, so do check those out (at the end of the feature). Do NOT scroll too fast through all the images though, because they’re BLOODY BEAUTIFUL. What an amazing day… Martha, Phil, congratulations! We think you’re awesome!!

Our photographer Emily was THE BEST. She was really friendly and warm from the get go and was always excited for us every time we spoke. She even sent us a little prep package with tea and chocolate and a booklet to answer all the questions we might have. We also decided to have a couple’s shoot a few weeks before the wedding which gave us a chance to meet Emily and get used to being photographed – definitely the right choice, we had a lot of fun and had some great photos of us to put on the tables! Emily is an amazing photographer – she captured the day and most importantly, every bit of the joy.

So this one’s really close to home for me: a Lake District wedding at one of our finest venues, nestling amongst the highest English mountains in the charming village of Grasmere. The venue is the Michelin-starred The Forest Side – a gem I’ve dined at, organised a photoshoot at, and where my mum & dad used to stay on their Lakes holidays before I was born!

Gorgeous couple Hemal and Katie had the most wonderful Lake District wedding, surrounded by their closest family and friends and with the venue dressed from head to toe in the most incredible florals, courtesy of outstanding florist Kevin from Brackens of Bowness. Their amazing photographer is lovely Tiree Dawson, and their day is already going down as one of my favourites on the blog for 2020 (and yup, I know it’s only January but WOWEEE!!!)

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 is just the most amazing treat for me. Not only am I setting off on a Big Adventure later on (it’ll be on my insta in a few days I’m sure!) but I have this STUNNING wedding to share with you before I go. It’s everything: it’s pure love, it’s magical photography, it’s beautiful, dazzling and different. And I’ve been SO excited to share Lizzie and Faz’s Fennes wedding with you lovely lot!

If you don’t already follow Grace Elizabeth on instagram, please do. She’s one of my favourite UK wedding photographers and happens to be an English Wedding member as well (‘scuse me while I break off for a little happy dance in the corner! Woohoo!) – and her words are inspiring, heartfelt and as wonderful as her images… which brings me to today’s amazing couple Lizzie and Faz, and their brilliant wedding planning story and supplier reviews and recommendations.

“Our wedding was relaxed and inclusive: a fusion with Pakistani and English elements. Our colour palette was green and gold; we wanted a natural greenery feel and something that would blend with the Asian wedding vibe for the second ceremony too.

Sometimes I see a wedding and it looks the most fun a couple has ever had in their lives. Sometimes the joy and excitement spills through in every beautiful detail, and I spend ages just gazing at all the gorgeous photos to see little details and love and laughter and grinning back at my screen. Mike and Kelly are one of those amazing couples you can just see loved every moment of their best day ever, and I’m so happy they chose our fabulous friend and exceptional documentary wedding photographer Linus Moran to capture their wedding.

This truly is a wedding with everything: a boat covered in flowers, glorious sunshine and face glitter. A stunning bride beaming with joy, and her groom glowing with pride and happiness. The emotion of the day is pure magic – the love between this amazing couple is just magical to see.

So you’re about to read our best English Wedding interview ever… along with a gorgeous set of photos from a wedding which absolutely inspires me. These guys are just brilliant: Anna and Ollie’s wedding is perfectly THEM: individual, stylish and relaxed. They had 3 venues throughout the day, taking their party from registry office to foodie heaven to party venue. Venue styling simply wasn’t required: instead the focus was on celebrating their love and entertaining their guests! Likewise, Anna avoided bridal boutiques and found her incredible dress on The Outnet. She looks more than amazing – and  blissfully happy, confident and beautiful!

You just HAVE to read Anna’s interview, which made me chuckle, smile and pretty much break out in a little round of applause from time to time! Scroll through the fabulous photographs by our friend and English Wedding member Annelie Eddy Photography below, and you’ll find Anna’s interview after the pics. Keep reading right until the very last question – and enjoy!!!
