Happy Sunday lovelies! We’re heading up to the Lakes today to catch up with family, and hoping for a dry day with views! I hope you’ve got lovely Sunday plans too 🙂
I thought I’d share today’s beautiful wedding on the blog a little earlier than normal (because we all have Sunday things to do, don’t we?!) Emma and Stefan’s day is oh so elegant, with classic styling touches and plenty of summer sunshine. Emma looks stunning in a Mark Lesley dress, perfect for Prestwold Hall‘s sophisticated and timeless surroundings.

Prestwold is a beautiful country house and did not need much decoration. We stuck to decorating the tables for the wedding breakfast and a few things around the bar. The flowers were arranged by Lynn at Scent with Love. We all had a bouquet of peach Vuvuzela Roses, Memory lane Roses and gypsophila, posy style with a few diamantes and tied with satin ribbon.

Canals have a romance all of their very own, don’t you think? If you’ve ever strolled along a canal before sunset you’ll know how wonderfully tranquil those towpaths can be. The adventure of drifting through England’s hidden waterways is one I dream of experiencing, one day. So Heather and Michael’s day has my heart: their photos by the locks are beautiful; their tipi reception is full of character and quaint old English charm – it’s perfect.

“The ceremony was held in a very low key structure next to a canal in Leicestershire with the reception in the tipi next to it. The venue is fairly new and quite quirky with narrow boats passing by and a bar that looks like a moored up boat.

Heather made all the decor herself and it was lovely. Heather and Michael are expecting a baby so the day was full of lots of lovely emotional moments, which wedding photographer Helen King captures beautifully in the images.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you have something lovely planned for this evening… and to keep your hearts full of love and happiness I have a wonderfully romantic and beautiful day to share with you this afternoon. I LOVE this wedding – gorgeous couple Louise and Tom are absolutely perfect for the English Wedding Blog with all their fabulous flowers and such stunning portraits by Kathryn Edwards.

“I bought most of the stuff myself… mainly from Hobbycraft, Etsy or Not on the High Street. I was introduced to Elinor Softley who has her own business in decorating weddings and she was an absolute life saver! She completely understood the theme and ideas I had for the day and couldn’t do enough for us. I don’t know what we would have done without her as she dressed the venue by herself on the Friday and helped to take it down on the Sunday! She is amazing. Her company is fairly new, but she is so talented! It’s called Soft Touch Events and you can hire lots of cool things from Elinor…I think I hired pretty much her whole warehouse!

I do love how weddings give the perfect opportunity to glamour things up to the max. Today’s celebration is beautiful and then some. A statement bouquet, a gorgeous bride in the most fabulous dress, and such a stunning venue! Every detail is just wonderful… I do hope you love this as much as I do!

Glamorous Gatsby wedding from Prestwold Hall on the English Wedding Blog (18)

Our theme came from my love of the Great Gatsby, I’ve watched the film and read the book a million times. The whole day from the invitations to the decorations and dress were inspired by the 1920’s era, featuring quotes from the book and patterns from the art deco period. With me being a designer for a living it was really easy to translate the designs from the invitations across to the rest of the theme for the wedding.

A unique wedding doesn’t have to be full of out-there ideas or unusual vintage collectibles: on the day what makes a wedding unique is the people you share it with. Shelley and Richard chose to have a traditional wedding with pretty pink styling touches at one of Leicestershire’s loveliest venues: Hothorpe Hall.

Shelley looks amazing – she’s such a beautiful bride. She told me she fell in love with her wedding dress, despite thinking she’d go for a totally different style… and she looks like it was made for her, doesn’t she?

The details of the day are simple and traditional: flowers are romantic and girly with lots of delicate pinks, and were provided by a local florist in Dunchurch village. There are some sweet and pretty ideas here, and those of you researching classic wedding styles will find inspiration for your big day – as well as some great tips and advice from Shelley and Richard at the end of the blog post.
