Timelessly elegant wedding styling and moments to melt your heart! Nick Davies Photography on the English Wedding Blog (27)

Lizzie and Dan’s wedding is a classic – timeless styling, an elegant colour palette and beautiful sunshine… the flowers are lush, in a soft palette of dusky pinks, and the beautiful atmosphere they created is one of tranquility and romance. Lizzie is stunning in her Cizzy Bridal dress, and Dan is every bit the classic English groom in a smart navy suit with Ted Baker waistcoat.  The venue is Wadhurst Castle, and all of their lovely photographs are by Nick Davies Photography.

I loved getting ready- we used the bridal room in the castle so both mums and my bridesmaids had the whole morning together- it was such fun, we gave out pressies and Dan had written me a great card which made me laugh and cry! I also remember the moment the door opened to the walled garden & I saw all of the guests turn as I walked up the aisle, from then it really was the most amazing whirlwind!

My top tip for you today, lovelies, is to find a place you love and get married there. It can be that simple… and you don’t have to go out of your way to find a place you love, if there’s already a place! You might have a favourite country pub, or a local beach with amazing views, or a city centre restaurant. Beautiful bride Laura & her gorgeous husband Rick found their perfect venue at the East Quay in Whitstable – with sea views and glorious natural decor inside (plus all the sparkly wonderfulness) it’s sooo perfect for a modern wedding! Images are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Michelle Cordner Photography.

Our wedding was happy, fun, relaxed, the most marvellous day of our lives, set by the sea with a very relaxed style. The venue is unique with its own style with fantastic views of the sea. We added additional lighting with lanterns on the dance floor and the eating area.

It takes a pretty special wedding photographer to capture atmosphere in their images. You know the feeling of pure joy from a wedding day, or the way a groom’s expression changes from nervous anticipation, to total loved-up overwhelm and then purest happiness as he walks from the ceremony, his bride on his arm? I see it every day, and it’s one of my favourite things – and the way Kent wedding photographer Michelle Cordner captures emotion in her images really is beautiful.

I do love a venue with character, don’t you? Pretty blank canvas spaces are all well and good, but show me somewhere with a stage, balconies, pillars and old world charm… and I’m sold! Today’s wedding from Salomon’s Estate in Tunbridge Wells is unique, exciting and beautifully photographed by our friend and sponsor lovely Penny Young Photography. Amy is such a stunning bride; Carl her perfect match – and oh, those flowers too!

Carl hand made the giant ROPE letter lights over a few weeks, and they were popular with our guests and us – he enjoyed making them, and we had a bit of help from a few friends to finish them off, but when they turned into Disco lights in the evening it was great to see our new “name in lights” so to speak!

Kent wedding photography, beautiful quality images by Benjamin Toms (8)

Benjamin Toms is absolutely one of the best wedding photographers I know. Scrolling through his images is one of those things I genuinely treasure about my work as a wedding blogger. They bring me down to earth, focus my thoughts on what’s really important about weddings. It’s the moments of connection, the excitement, joy and happy overwhelm. The quiet, thoughtful shots, and the flashes of brilliant humour. Ben is based in Kent, and photographs weddings all around the UK – his 2017 adventures took him to weddings in Morocco, America and Poland. Ben captures beauty in everyone he photographs – more than that, he sees the character in everyone and it comes across in his images. Looking at the photos I’m about to show you, I can almost imagine how it felt – that moment in time, captured forever. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer in Kent or on planet Earth, you need to grab a cuppa and enjoy these wonderful wedding photos.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you’ve had the loveliest weekend. Did you spot our two amazing weddings from Priston Mill and Union Club Soho over the weekend? Today we’re heading all the way across to Canterbury for a beautiful summer wedding at Goodnestone Park. The venue is AMAZING and it’s also where Jane Austen stayed just before she wrote Pride & Prejudice.

Photographer Ami from Rubie Love Photography captured their day so beautifully. She told me Polly and James were the most wonderful couple with so much love for one another – and it totally comes across in their images from the day.

The lovely couple had on the day coordination from Georgie at Ethereal Events and beautiful florals by Lucy at Wild Bloom. Polly’s hair and makeup was beautifully done by the girls from Wye Beauty  and entertainment was provided by the highly recommended magician Chris Harding.

Traditional Kent wedding in an unusual venue, images by Kerry Ann Duffy Photography (8)
FEATURED

This space is the most amazing I’ve seen in a long time – a blank canvas wedding venue in a league all of its own. Gorgeous Nicole & Samuel were married at The Winding House in June, styled their day with elegance and simple homemade touches, and chose lovely Kerry Ann Duffy as their wedding photographer.

“Our venue was such a unique building with its painted white bricks, vintage wood and green trees and banks. THE perfect location and back drop for our wedding. The ridiculously high ceilings made the ceremony feel chapel like which was amazing. Especially with our music playing during the ceremony. The owners Vicki and Paul would do anything for you and go above and beyond to help achieve the best day.

I made bunting galore, so easy and enjoyable to make. I made the table plan, and tree decoration that hung over the top table.
Greta at The little cake company did the most amazing job on our wedding cake, which looked and tasted great. She had so many flavours to choose from. We went fruit, lemon drizzle and banoffee for the top tier (which our dogs stole and ate off the kitchen side post wedding)[!]

I love to start the week with an amazing wedding to completely knock your little socks off and take your mind off work! If you’ve had enough of the daily grind already, then this beautiful celebration is guaranteed to brighten your day and add a little spring to your steps!

Fabulous wedding ideas from Cooling Castle with Penny Young Photography (3)

Beautiful Beckie and Max were married at Cooling Castle Barn in March last year. Their spring wedding is wonderful – another (we’re on a roll this week!) which absolutely proves you can have a stunning bouquet this early in the season – in fact I’d say spring is my favourite for bouquet inspiration!

The flowers are by the very fabulous Distinctly Floral, based in Hadlow, Kent. Amanda has a wonderful talent for colourful floral design – I thoroughly recommend following her on Facebook for tons of lovely floral inspiration. Amanda dressed the ceremony and reception rooms for Beckie and Max with soft lilacs, dusky pinks and white blooms. The colour palette for Beckie’s bouquet is wonderfully soft, and I love how textured and mixed it is – each individual bloom is just perfect! The blossom trees for the ceremony came from Floral Explosion – they look fab in the pictures, don’t you think?!

Wedding of the century? Keye and James at Chapeldown with Steven Rooney Photography (17)

I guess if we could all describe our perfect wedding it would be something like this: fun, relaxed, gorgeously styled, games, drinks, full of personality, laughter, love, unique. Keye and James nailed all of those – and then some. They added circus and carnival, wow factor, fizz and flames. The opulent floral displays are breathtaking and the styling is oh-so-pretty and perfectly on trend. Their day is spectacularly styled with beautiful summer blooms, calligraphy signage, smoke bombs, brilliant outdoor games – and our gorgeous grooms look fantastic in matching outfits with waistcoats and bowties.

The list of ‘above and beyond’ styling details is just amazing. Stilt-walkers, fabulous carpets lining the walkways between tents, a harpist, an owl ring-bearer, personalised plastic sunglasses in a rainbow of colours (and glorious sunshine to go with!)… but you’ll see from the pictures how incredible a day this was!

I think it was the little birds on the table stationery which I fell in love with first. Then I saw how gorgeous Lizzy and Josh were, how beautifully they’d incorporated countryside touches and bright, colourful styling into their day – and I was smitten. This is a stunning wedding from beautiful Sussex venue Chafford Park, with our lovely friend and English Wedding Blog sponsor Penny Young behind the camera. Grab a cuppa, settle down somewhere cosy and enjoy!

Handmade was a big part of our day – the venue is in a beautiful setting, but is a blank canvass. We wanted it to very feel personal to us, and to enjoy a full year of preparations. We picked our own flowers at Blooming Green and arranged into mismatched jugs, just using tape to give structure instead of oasis. We also made our own buttonholes, boutonnieres, flower girl basket and bouquets.

As you can see from the images today’s elegant outdoor wedding was super chilled and pretty! Gorgeous bride Hannah designed all of the wedding details as she is a graphic designer. Hannah & Sami’s Mum Ann made the incredible golden drip wedding cake covered in macarons together!

Hannah & Sami celebrated their wedding and reception at Rowhill Grange in Kent, they had an absolutely incredible outdoor ceremony followed by drinks and canapés on the lawn & reception in the stunningly decorated reception room in the clock tower. Hannah’s classic and stunning wedding gown is from Hayley Elizabeth Bridal in Orpington. Her bridesmaids wear dresses from Jarlo London. Sami and the groomsmen wore suits by Richard Mark Menswear.

Chic Weddings supplied our flowers and decorations. They were amazing the whole way through from initial consultation to final arrangements on the day. Lots of our decorations got moved around and utilized again where they could, our lavender and thyme pots even became the wedding favours! One of our favourite parts of the decor was the fairy lights that sat behind our top round table, setting the scene for the dinner and lit the dance floor!
