“Marleybrook House is already beautifully styled which really appealed to us. Once we added flowers and balloons we really needed little else. It was important for us not to have to spend lots of time preparing the venue so we could spend time with family and friends who had travelled to Kent for the wedding. We left most of the hard work to our trusty suppliers and Tanith our lovely wedding planner at Marleybrook House.

So this one’s really close to home for me: a Lake District wedding at one of our finest venues, nestling amongst the highest English mountains in the charming village of Grasmere. The venue is the Michelin-starred The Forest Side – a gem I’ve dined at, organised a photoshoot at, and where my mum & dad used to stay on their Lakes holidays before I was born!

Gorgeous couple Hemal and Katie had the most wonderful Lake District wedding, surrounded by their closest family and friends and with the venue dressed from head to toe in the most incredible florals, courtesy of outstanding florist Kevin from Brackens of Bowness. Their amazing photographer is lovely Tiree Dawson, and their day is already going down as one of my favourites on the blog for 2020 (and yup, I know it’s only January but WOWEEE!!!)

Word of mouth – Tiree was recommended to us by a friend who had a relative who had used her before. After an initial consultation we really liked her and therefore proceeded.

Hello there, lovely! I am so excited to be sharing this gorgeous wedding with you this morning. The spring sunshine is guaranteed to warm your day – and Katherine is absolutely stunning in Maggie Sottero’s ‘Deirdre’ wedding dress. Katherine and Terran describe their day as “The best, most fun, day of our lives so far!” – and it really does look like the PERFECT wedding from their photos. The happy pair celebrated at Katherine’s parent’s farm near Wareham, Dorset – their reception was held in a beautiful sail cloth tent in a field. All images are by lovely Emma Gates Photography, who gets a glowing review from the bride and groom in their English Wedding interview below!

Welcome to the first week of December! Are you all black-Fridayed out?! I know I am! Let’s escape for a little while with a stunningly beautiful wedding, informally styled around a rosemary and lavender theme and beautifully captured by Jonny Barratt Photography. Bride Nikki wears a wonderfully sparkling Phase Eight dress, while Gareth’s suit is tailor made by Gieves and Hawkes. They look fabulous, happy and SO in love! I couldn’t think of a better beginning to our week. I hope you love this as much as I do!

“My mum and I are quite crafty, and so there was always going to be an element of home made when it came to table decorations and favours. One of my favourite home made touches was in honour of my Dad who sadly passed away a few years ago. A family tradition that my Dad started, and that we all still do now, is the annual sloe gin production. With that in mind, it felt totally fitting that we have miniature sloe gin favours. My Mum started the process a year in advance so it was all very well steeped by the time the wedding came round! Mum and I sat and bottled it up together, sampling each batch of course! We also included the recipe on the bottle labels too, so that friends could re-produce it if they like it. It took a while for us to realise that it would mean that he was literally there in spirit!

Happy Sunday, lovelies! I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend – and staying toasty warm, wherever you are! Today we have a pretty wedding from Woodhall Manor in Suffolk. Bride Cara looks beautiful in a sleeveless, lace embroidered dress by Ronald Joyce. Handsome hubby Chris and their nearest and dearest kept it quiet that they’d arranged for Cara’s horse Nero to be brought to the venue on the day, as she’d always dreamed of having him there on her wedding day! The photos, needless to say, are just wonderful. They’re by our lovely friend and English Wedding member Ayshea Goldberg Photography.

I met Ayshea at a wedding fayre and loved the natural relaxed feel of the photos she had taken so I made an appointment with Chris to meet at her gallery to discuss what we wanted and he instantly fell in love with her images too

Welcome to the week, my lovelies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. We’re kicking off this week with an absolute stunner of a wedding: beautiful Serena & Michael’s Worcestershire wedding has the loveliest atmosphere of elegance and glamour – I just know you’ll love this. Their wedding photographer is new to English Wedding: Nicholas Rogers Photography is based in the Midlands – he gets a brilliant review from the happy couple.

“My mum dried flowers for a year for the confetti, our conservatory was covered for months at a time! We also bought wall paper for the paper cones to put them in. They were so beautiful, all the guests loved them. We assembled the favours ourselves, painstakingly building 150 boxes, putting macaroons in them and attaching a ribbon and a tag to each one. We made our seating plan ourselves from a huge picture frame and printed the table inserts at home.

Before I say anything else, I just have to start with Stacey’s DRESS today – because WOW!!! She looks incredible in a Stella York gown from Bicester Bridal. This is a dreamy outdoor wedding in Oxfordshire, with gorgeous May sunshine (and the sunset is stunning!) and a soft colour palette of blush with accents in powder blue and gentle peach. The flowers are wonderful, the vibe is elegant, fun and romantic and the images by Benjamin Wetherall Photography take my breath away. You’ll love this.

I can almost smell the flowers… because today we have the loveliest, summeriest wedding of all for you to enjoy. Gorgeous couple Jo and Jack married in Cheltenham on a beautiful early summer’s day. Their barn wedding celebration is just divine: the florals are so vibrant and wonderfully colourful they almost steal the show.

I hope you love them as much as we do! Have the most wonderful Bank Holiday everyone – I’ll hand over to Hannah to tell you more about this fabulously pretty wedding day.

Jo and Jack were wed in their village church in Cheltenham. It was a perfect, quiet and quaint location where only locals and a few scarce hikers would pass by. Imagine sun trickling in through the trees and birds singing, so, so lovely.

We have been SO excited to share this beautiful May wedding with you. It’s quintessentially English with the most wonderful florals, superb styling and a fabulous venue in North Yorkshire. Bride Lizzie looks incredible in a Maggie Sottero dress with such a pretty and unusual neckline – I absolutely love it. And Rick’s bespoke suit is just superb – he looks amazing and we love his look!

The wedding day involved three venues: from the reception at All Saints Church in Helmsley guests walked to the Walled Garden for a drinks reception, and then travelled on a vintage bus to The Star Inn at Harome for their Michelin starred wedding breakfast and evening reception, which was in a beautiful PapaKata Sperry Tent.

You can’t beat a wedding with a really fun story. Lovely Jade and Carl invited all of their guests to their children’s christening – and surprised them with an extra: they got MARRIED!! It makes the photos of the beginning of the day even more special, knowing that for most of the guests, the whole thing was a secret surprise!

Images are by lovely Fiona at Anoif Photography, who gets a fabulous review from Jade and Carl in their interview (at the end of the blog post). Photography was the couple’s biggest spend, and one they’re very glad of – for while this was very much a DIY wedding on a budget, the images will last a lifetime and I love the piece of family history they’ve captured for our lovely bride and groom!

Hey lovely! Happy Wednesday and I hope you have sunshine!! Prepare to be literally glued to your screen though, because right now I’m sharing one of the PRETTIEST weddings as we join Sarah and Greg at Dorfold Hall, with images by Joasis Photography – this is just SO beautiful!

Cheshire brides – do check it out as I would LOVE to meet you there!

“I had never been one of those girls who has their wedding planned in advance, but once I started I knew what I wanted it to look and feel like. I have a creative streak, and wanted to design as much of it as possible so the invites; table placing and orders of service all used my script and drawings. Cara at The Little Paper Shop designed some loose leaf florals for me in a muted pink (to match the bridesmaids dresses that I had already bought!), which we put with rose gold and the theme grew from there. The styling of the day was all muted pinks, ivories, and delicate flowers with beautiful scents – such as roses and peonies – and with lots of texture and sage green. I loved the flowers – and in particular my bouquet – which blew me away! It was such a beautiful shape!
