Happy Tuesday, lovelies! I’m still away from my desk on a Big Adventure – but of COURSE I’d never leave you without something beautiful to feast your eyes on. Today’s Parley Manor wedding is full of glorious sunflowers, with stunning bride Carley rocking an unusual and beautiful Maggie Sottero gown. She and handsome hubby Dan describe their wedding as a “relaxed cocktail fuelled sunny garden party in the perfect setting” – which is everything I think a wedding should be!

The day was styled around summer colours and sunflowers, with red accents (and the bridesmaids look fabulous in gorgeous red Watters Wtoo dresses to suit the theme). Carley and Dan found their suppliers via their venue, and then did their own research online to put together their perfect team of creatives to make their dream day come true!

It has been a whirlwind of a week here at English Wedding HQ! I’ve typed up a 105-page modern calligraphy workbook, written a gold ink wedding table plan and menus for a November wedding, and planned in a bunch of gorgeous real weddings for the autumn – so I’m mega happy it’s Friday today! Having gorgeous couple Charlotte and Dexter on the blog makes it even more special – this is an AMAZING wedding and I just know you’ll love these two – I mean just look at this stunning golden hour photo!!!

All of their styling touches are minimal, neutral and clear – the cake is an absolute showstopper – created by Bake My Cake, it has all neutral tiers, but one tier to match the bridesmaids’ dresses. Topped with handmade sugar flowers, and with a personalised crest with Charlotte and Dexter’s initials on one tier, it’s just beautiful!

Today’s wedding is an elegant and classy affair; mixing traditional styling with a modern twist at one al styling with a modern twist at one of Yorkshire’s favourite wedding venues:  The Mansion at Leeds Roundhay Park. Gorgeous couple Kat and Vincent were lucky to have a beautiful summer’s day for their wedding, and really made the most of the grounds of the park for their wedding photos.

Images are by York wedding photographer Amy Jordison, who gets a glowing review from the couple in their English Wedding Interview below! Watch out for a stunning Essense of Australia dress (from Ava Rose Hamilton), fabulous florals by NC Floral Designs and that wonderful cake from Zoe’s Fancy Cakes.

We posted a request for photographers on Bidvine.com. Of those that came back, we met those that seemed a good fit and then made a final decision based on various factors like portfolio, experience, location and rapport – the latter being important because they needed to be able to get on not just with us, but all the guests they’d be having to wrangle on the day.

Hey beautiful! Today’s wedding is a treat – an all-out floral feast in the simplest of colour schemes, with stunning images and a focus on family. This Mill Barns in Alveley wedding has pretty much everything – and I love the images, by Deborah at Stott Weddings. The styling and lighting makes this a really impressive day to share on the blog – with Perfectly Unique Occasions providing a floral arch and blossom canopy trees to style the ceremony and wedding breakfast tables. 

 

“The Mill Barns is a beautiful venue without much extra decoration needed and in beautiful surroundings too! However we chose Perfectly Unique occasions to dress the venue, which they did beautifully and it was truly stunning what they did! We chose our items beforehand but seeing it all together in the day was just incredible!

We made part of our favours ourselves, we had personalized m&ms in little jars for a little sweet treat for our guests! For the little guests at our wedding we made goody bags, with wedding crafts, activities, coloring, sweets and bubbles!

Hey lovelies! Welcome to Monday… and to a fabulous festival wedding in June at Northside Farm, Northumberland. This is a beautiful barn venue with glamping huts & tipis for brides, grooms and guests can stay in. Gorgeous bride Laura and dapper hubby Daryl enjoy their festivals, and with TONS of wonderful handcrafting. Laura worked on her wedding stationery almost every night for a YEAR! She also learned how to crochet so she could make blankets for her guest in case they got cold in the evening! Laura describes their wedding as “3 days of pure joy and happiness” – and it shows in the pics. I hope you love all these ideas as much as I do!

“From before we were even engaged I had the theme of our wedding picked out. Daryl and I enjoy a festival and we knew we wanted to have a wedding over the full weekend and spend as much time celebrating with all our family and friends. (I’m the kind of person who has a birth month not a birthday) The wedding venue (Northside Farm) allowed us to do just that in a beautiful setting. They were very laid back like us and just let us do our thing.”

Summer brides and grooms – peony season is here and we’re celebrating with ALL the peonies in today’s beautiful Kent wedding. Beautiful bride Becky married her gorgeous husband Greg at High Rocks and they chose English Wedding member Helen England Photography to capture their day. The pics are glorious, the sunshine is fabulous! (Hello, outside! We LOVE you today!) – and the joy and happiness just radiates out from this pretty, feminine summer wedding.

There were a few recommendations for High Rocks wedding photographers. We looked at a lot and we absolutely loved Helen’s style. We wanted our wedding to be captured exactly how it was – everyone smiling and having fun. We loved that Helen’s photos are really relaxed and just capture everyone’s emotions without them knowing.

HELEN IS A DREAM!!! From the minute she showed up to my hotel room (which was chaos) she fitted in like one of our friends. She got on with her shooting and we didn’t even know she was there. She made me feel so comfortable.

Hey lovely! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend – and oh, welcome to April! I have a proper spring in my step this morning and I’m excited to share this beautiful wedding just bursting full of summer sunshine! Rachel and Steve were married at Iscoyd Park in the summer and chose lovely Rachel Joyce as their wedding photographer.

We looked for photographers on many different websites and blogs. I searched the lot and I found this very difficult to narrow down. What made us select Rachel was that her photos were vibrant and in the moment which is just what we wanted plus she didn’t break the budget.

We wanted most of the photos captured to be natural of ourselves and our guests enjoying the day. Rachel and Dan were brilliant throughout our day and we are literally spoilt for choice when choosing our photos for our wedding albums.

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.

Happy Friday my lovelies! After a pretty full week on the blog we have one of those wonderfully relaxed, countryside tipi weddings to share with you today. Beautiful bride and gorgeous groom Lucy and Ian, along with their guests, simply walked from their ceremony to the reception in the charming village of Singleton, in the Lavant valley near Chichester. Their five month old daughter Maisie is the star of the show – how adorable is this tiny human?!

Images are by a great friend of English Wedding, Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall Photography. Martin’s reportage style images have an exceptional quality and capture moments and memories in such a thoughtful way. This pic (below) is an absolute favourite for me – and huge respect for the brilliant vicar (“Rev Kev”, I believe!) who was happy for Martin to be close in for some amazing ceremony shots. (Those two curious little faces peeping around Ian’s legs!! So cute!)

Hey lovely! I have a treat for you today – gorgeous bride Meg and her handsome new hubby Jack celebrated their wedding at Brympton House, a stunning venue which Country Life described as the most beautiful house in England. Our friend and Somerset wedding photographer Martin Dabek knows it well: he captured Meg and Jack’s day in his fabulous style, recording the wonderful styling details, memorable moments and atmosphere of the day perfectly. And that Phillipa Lepley gown…

The venue, Brympton House, was beautiful in its own right. However, the styling team were able to add so many extra touches that bought the home to life and fit perfectly with the themes. Emily, who does the Brympton House flowers arranged all the flowers for us. She was brilliant and added extra touches, such as a personalised ribbons to the bouquets. We wanted lots of flowers and folliage, which was all a bit messy and relaxed. Everything we asked for she did wonderfully.

Although today’s wedding starts with a church service, the vibe is wonderfully whimsical and woodlandy, with celebrations under canvas and even a hand fasting ceremony in the afternoon! The venue is Bedfordshire’s enchanting Tofte Manor; the photographer is our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography.

Gorgeous couple Georgina and Ben had a relaxed and beautiful wedding in the summer. Their day is beautifully styled with glorious bouquets of pink peonies, purple and coral blooms with splashes of greenery and fabulous textures. The peony styling continues through to the wedding cake, which is displayed prettily on rustic wooden tables at the wedding breakfast. Georgina’s stunning lace dress is the star of the show, and her delicate flower crown is just beautiful!

“Our wedding flowers were even more than what I was expecting, our florist Jenny from Jenny Penny Flowers in Frodsham completely went above and beyond in providing everything which I had envisaged. Jenny understood what I was asking for and provided us with more, we had so many compliments on the flowers and the table decorations. The flowers were an important factor on our day as they set the tone for our botanical feel and I could not have chosen someone better than Jenny to trust to do this, they were absolutely perfect.
