Have you been to the Midland Hotel in Morecambe? It’s fabulous: an art deco hotel on the seafront, lovingly restored and restyled with so much character, and a superb wedding venue. I was there for the very first time only a month or so ago but the hotel has featured on the English Wedding Blog many times…

And so today I’m over the moon to have a fabulous wedding from the Midland Hotel to share with you. The details are classy and understated: flowers are white; stationery is stylish with a dash of art deco, and our brides are absolutely gorgeous!

Amy and Krysta found their suppliers online, at wedding fairs and through recommendations from the venue. They loved their bridal boutique in Preston for the super helpful advice they received – and for being able to choose dresses which worked well together even though they couldn’t see each other’s until the wedding day! Don’t they look amazing?!

I’ll never tire of seeing my laptop screen full of wonderfully sunny sunflowers – and this June wedding is one of the sunfloweriest I’ve ever seen… it’s like a blast of sunshine and smiles and I know I’ll be grinning all day now. I so hope this one gets you the same way – it’s amazing!

Rebecca and John were married in June at Browsholme Hall, inside the 15th century stone barn which they filled with gorgeous yellow accents and sunflowers to bring their wedding ceremony and reception bursting alive with colour. They’re a lovely couple, and I’m thrilled to be sharing their wedding on the blog with you today.

You absolutely mustn’t miss Rebecca’s interview at the end of the blog feature – her top tip for other brides is about choosing your bridesmaids. Rebecca told me her best girls were amazing: they looked after her every moment of the wedding day, keeping her wine glass full, fixing her hair, handing her lipstick and dancing with her all night!

Morning everyone! I have a fabulous wedding for you this morning – but first, quickly, any suppliers who’d like a May advertising spot please do email me! I have a couple more spaces to fill for next month and I’m looking for applications today 🙂

I loved the rich, vibrant colours of Katie and Damian’s Lancashire wedding as soon as I saw them – the rustic styling is beautifully done, and all of the DIY elements of today’s wedding are bound to inspire some of you!

Gorgeous bride Katie has shared some lovely tips on budgeting, crafting and planning their wedding day, and her advice is wonderful: “Stay true to you and your husband-to-be’s wishes as other people will certainly have their input in the matter but you have to do what you want as it’s your day. Savour every second as it truly does fly by and set a limit of meeting and greeting.”

I’m lucky this week – ridiculously lucky! – to have some wonderfully individual and unique couples starring on the English Wedding Blog. Yesterday’s real wedding was awesome with a humanist ceremony outdoors; today’s is just lovely – a bride and groom whose own style once again shapes their day beautifully.

Nicola and Rob were married at the fabulous Bartle Hall, and their photographer was my great friend Jamie of Vickerstaff Photography. Their images reflect the timeless and elegant style of their day, all with a sense of fun! The portraits are divine (and with a gorgeous bride and groom, a breathtaking venue and an awesome photographer, how could they be anything else?!)

Love, love, love… the flowers (eucalyptus, you’re my favourite!), the chandelier, the ear-licking, the littlest bridesmaid… the first kiss, Grandma and the wonderful snowdrops…

Enjoy.

And… wow. Today’s wedding is stunning, divine, delicious and designer. Beautiful bride Saoirse wears a genuine 1960s style vintage wedding dress and looks incredible. William’s suit is Savile Row – and everything you’re about to see makes me so very proud to be a UK wedding blogger – this is just ridiculously gorgeous, and amazingly creative and personal!

Haworth Art Gallery wedding with a 1960s vintage theme by Rachel Joyce Photography (33)

Idea of the day: non-bridesmaids. Genius… I’m always a little conscious of ‘uniforms’ at weddings and Saoirse’s idea of her best girls bucking tradition is right up my street. She told me, “They wore what they liked. We didn’t want matching outfits for anyone although they all had matching wrist corsages from the florist.”

Hello lovely! I hope you’re having a wonderful day so far. I have something exciting to share with you this morning: beautiful images and amazing styling ideas from a super team of wedding suppliers and one of the best wedding venues in the north west.

Think literature: classic books with art deco elegance. Think vintage: feathers, pearls and faux fur with a strikingly beautiful make up look. Think style: exquisite fonts and striking stationery designs. And think glamour: a deliciously strappy wedding dress, the most amazing setting, and a classic vintage car.

There’s even snow outside… our beautiful model’s accessories and flowers are perfect for a winter wedding and as practical as they are pretty. You will adore this shoot – I know I do, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you today.

While it’s chilly outside I like to feature a little sunshine on the English Wedding Blog – today, a summer garden party wedding with paper lanterns and bunting, bright flowers and of course lots of wonderful sunshine.

Rebecca is beautiful. She wears a gown by So Sassi, and a gorgeous floral headband by Rock n Rose, which I think is amazing! Lee looks fab in a suit from Slaters, and the flowers by Wild and Wondrous are just stunning.

Sarah and Nick were married at Haworth Art Gallery – a fabulous location with a romantic atmosphere which needed little extra styling. Their creative talents came out to play with their marquee reception, where they enlisted friends and family to help make everything from bunting to stationery.

Today’s gorgeous bride made her own cake and many of the decorations, and everything looks amazing! Their guests commented on how personal this DIY wedding was because of all the things they thought of and made.

I particularly love the French influence in elements of the wedding design: the typefaces used on the Order of the Day; the cork decorations and the cheese wedding cake. It’s a wonderfully romantic and creative day from beginning to end, and the photographs from Pixies in the Cellar capture every detail – it’s a treat to be able to share them with you today!

Becky and Ali’s wedding at The Shireburn Arms is just lovely: a perfectly English venue, a relaxed and charming atmosphere, and the prettiest details. Today’s couple are gorgeous and fun – their wedding was all about the party and Becky even told me they skipped wedding readings because they “would have taken away some of the drinking and partying time”!

I love Becky’s style: her dress is a simple, elegant high street design which cost less than ÂŁ200 – and the sash is gorgeous, don’t you think? Ali’s navy pinstripe suit is perfect for an English gent and he had blue laces in his shoes – while his beautiful bride was still choosing her shoes on the morning of the wedding!

Romance is in the air this morning as I bring you one of the prettiest styling ideas of the year: mocha and metallics. There are endless possibilities with this colour palette – today’s shoot uses soft tones and the prettiest of details to create a timeless wedding style I know you’ll love.

mocha wedding style ideas shoot with DJ Archer Photography (39)
Charlotte is a dressmaker and the gowns she and her Legend Bridal team create are truly bespoke. We tend to take the influences from the gowns and accessories that the team from Legend have made.

For the Berrington Hall shoot, our theme was glamour with a touch of mocha. The shoot was very much a glamorous style with Charlotte’s (Legend Bridal) sequins and pearls and crystals featuring throughout. There is still a nod towards vintage weddings but with a more glamorous edge with golds and metallics featuring too.

It doesn’t usually take me this long to sort through the images I’m sent for a wedding blog feature, but photographer David Stubbs sent me so many gorgeous images I was truly spoilt for choice! I know you’ll love Louise and Christopher’s wedding – they have individuality and style; they’ve created a wedding day full of ideas and which looks as amazing in the images as it must have been to be there on the day!

David Stubbs Photography wedding blog

Louise is a stunning bride in her Enzoani dress and Christopher looks fab in his Next jacket and trousers – loving those polka dots and the shades! The VW camper van is a star; there’s a gorgeous little flower girl who almost steals the show and of course (as Louise puts it!) – a bucking bronco! I’ve been kind and only included the picture of Christopher as he’s doing well on the back of it… hehe!

Jayne and Glen’s wedding is full of English country charm, and its setting in the impressive tithe barn at Browsholme Hall in Lancashire is wonderful. The gorgeous couple poured their hearts and souls into crafting a beautifully homespun theme with stamps, kraft cards and hessian string – and the overall effect is fantastic.

The wedding flowers are a highlight – with help from a local farm selling buckets of flowers for DIY brides, Jayne’s friend Alison styled the beautiful bridal and bridesmaid bouquets to perfectly fit the style of their day.
