If you’re planning on popping the question this Christmas and are looking for the perfect way to make it a magical day to remember, let Emmeline Smith inspire you with a few of her favourite festive proposals.


Anyone who knows me, knows I love Christmas. And I mean, I really love Christmas! It’s a wonderful time of year – a much needed break from the drudgery of a cold and rainy winter – evoking happy memories of Christmases past. A time to fill our lives with all things glittery, warm and cosy – and mince pies! And if you are as fond of the season of goodwill as I am, it might just be the perfect time to get engaged.

If you’d like to spend your Monday with proper grin on your face, we’re here to help! Today’s gorgeous editorial photoshoot has a fun energy and a brilliant sense of humour. It brings together a bunch of Dorset wedding suppliers who share the same playfulness as well as being super talented in what they do! Huge thanks to lovely Emily for sending in this very mischievous styled shoot from early autumn – complete with goats! We hope you LOVE it!

The rings that CAST couples create are completely unique and the only rings like it on the planet. Not only that the creative process in itself is incredible.

Lovely Ella from CAST got in touch, saying, “I would absolutely love the opportunity to feature on your fantastic blog and spread the word about this incredibly personal aspect that can easily be incorporated into your readers’ weddings.” And since we LOVE creative touches and doing things a little differently, we were only too happy to oblige!

This morning we’re bringing you a burst of joyful colour and oodles of romance. A talented and super creative team of Northamptonshire wedding suppliers came together for this glorious photoshoot at Brampton Grange, sent in to us by fabulous Northants wedding photographer Daniel Thomas. We’re in LOVE with that cake, the colours of the balloons and the stunning floral styling!

This was a fun, colourful summer shoot designed to show off the versatility of Brampton Grange’s outside spaces, including the gorgeous courtyard for ceremonies. Bright, vibrant colours have been used to stand out and contrast against the bride’s dress and the surrounding greenery of the countryside.

It’s not often I stumble across something really special, new, unique and different for weddings. (I’ve been blogging here at English Wedding since 2009…) but this year, the couples we’ve featured on the blog have mentioned, enough times to make me sit up and take note, something absolutely brilliant.

I’ll just stop for a moment and say this isn’t a sponsored post. It’s simply something I’ve found and love so much I couldn’t resist sharing! (with a little help from a good friend).
