If somebody could just randomly invite me to a wedding at The Matara Centre I would be so very happy! This place though… the water, the flowers, the atmosphere always looks sensational. Gorgeous bride Catherine looks amazing in her Victoria Jane gown (bought from Krystle Brides), which she wears with a satin edged veil and pearl accessories and Jonni is a very handsome groom in his 3 piece Ted Baker suit. Images are by fabulous Cotswolds wedding photographer Martin Dabek.

Our venue was unique and amazing so didn’t need much styling. We kept it simple and tried to personalise it with our theme of music and lots of candles. Another amazing friend, Alex, from Burnt Orange Events made and provided some giant light up LOVE letters which were an great focal piece in the courtyard.

Martin had done some photos at a friend’s wedding and came highly recommended. When we went to see him he made us feel at complete ease and seemed genuinely excited to be able to photograph our wedding.

Happy Sunday lovelies! What do you have planned for today? We’re taking the day slowly after an amazing St Patrick’s day yesterday! So I thought we’d share a lovely spring wedding with you today. Liz and Matt were married in May last year, and celebrated at Lineham Farm, a beautifully secluded wedding venue between Bramhope and Eccup in North Leeds. I adore Liz’s pretty bouquet with daisies, roses and forget-me-nots… the white flowers are Wizard of Oz dahlias, and they look so beautifully different! Yorkshire wedding photographer Jenny Maden was there to capture events in her beautifully natural style.

“I started the day at Liz’s parents house, with the church just a short stroll away (albeit Liz arrived in her dads vintage car….too good an opportunity to miss). The morning was really relaxed, surrounded by Liz family and closest friends….who pulled together a wedding playlist to get ready to, that morning.

Today’s wedding is just amazing – the styling is all whites and greens, a key trend for the year and so beautifully done. I LOVE the florals more than I could even begin to say! Gorgeous bride Emily looked stunning in her beautiful gown by Temperley, with stunning Jimmy Choo shoes. The family pet pugs even wore special flowers on their collars – so cute! Images are by lovely English Wedding Directory member Helen Warner Photography.

The flowers for the marquee reception were particularly stunning including a hanging floral pole. The florals were soft greens and whites and included peonies, roses, tulips, jasmine and trailing vines. All supplied by Through the Looking Glass Flowers. The beautiful cake which perfectly fits all the styling of the day was supplied by Emily Jane Cakes.

Our theme was traditional and ethereal – we wanted it to be an English Country wedding but without any of the cliches or trends. Jonathan and I are known as ‘Toad and Pig’ so we found ways to incorporate that into the day. There were little jars filled with pig and toad sweets for each guest that my mum made. Our caterer’s husband made a bar for the marquee too which was really cool!

Alexandra and Damien were married in Bedfordshire in May. Their day is so pretty, with feminine flowers in soft shades – but I love how their focus is on family and celebrating their love. The special touches of fairy lights and pretty florals just make it all the more special, and lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Becky Harley Photography captures it all so beautifully…

I was four months pregnant when we walked down the aisle, so we felt blessed to have our little one with us on the day. We feel even more close now, a proper team! The wedding brought all our families and friends together and new friends were made, and old friends reacquainted.

We didn’t have a theme as such. We wanted the day to be relaxed and casual. As the venue (a country pub) was so beautiful already we didn’t need to do too much decorating.

Happy Friday my lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a brilliant week and are ready for the weekend… which starts, for me, pretty much now!! Before I reach for a prosecco though, I LOVE today’s featured wedding and have been so excited to share it with you!!! Gorgeous Krissy and Simon’s beach pics are my fave, they’re wonderful.

Super lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Ayshea Goldberg got in touch a little while ago  with this lovely wedding from May. She told me the weather wasn’t great (VERY windy and chilly) but Krissy and Simon still insisted on going to the beach for their photos – and we’re both thrilled that they did!

“The day was full of homemade details, Krissy’s nanna had made the silk flower bouquets (which looked really nice), and Krissy made all the bunting and table centrepieces herself. The cake was made by Simon’s Mum in their favourite flavours – including a gluten free option. Their cake topper included a little black cat as they have a rescue cat called Winnie. They wanted a very DIY, easy going vibe which is exactly what they achieved.”

There’s something about an elopement – the romance of it all just gets me, every time! Nick and Kristina’s love just shines from the photos of their special day. There’s no nerves, none of the formality or embarrassment that being in front of a big crowd of people can sometimes bring. These two lovely people are joyful, blissfully happy from the moment we first see them – and yes, it makes me want to elope, right now, to Gretna Green!

The fact it was just us 2 made it so incredibly special – we remember every single word of our wedding vows… Don’t lose sight of what getting married is all about. Being married is the same but everything is different! It’s hard to explain, but there is a deep and strong bond that exsists, that inextricably links you together forever.

Huge thanks to lovely Camilla Lucinda Photography for sharing these beautiful moments with us today!

You don’t need 100 or more people to watch him put a ring on your finger. You don’t need the stress of a wedding table plan, huge corkage fees or to spend your day in a crowd of distant cousins. All you really need is you. Intimate weddings with only a handful of guests are my favourite, and beautiful bride Liz and Richard’s day is simply perfect. Don’t you just love that Jenny Packham dress?

“We looked for Kent based photographers online and after looking through a lot of photography we came across Helen’s website and we knew it was the relaxed style we wanted. We contacted Helen to arrange meeting her at a wedding fayre and we instantly clicked – we knew she’d be great at blending in and capturing our special moments.

As the bluebells are almost out on the hillsides here in the Lakes, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this gorgeous day with you. Tristan and Kayleigh had a beautiful woodland wedding in springtime, surrounded by bluebells and incorporating them into their theme. The bride and groom are just naturally beautiful – theirs could be my perfect wedding, I think. I just love the flowers, wooden decor and raffia which bring their natural spring wedding look together.

“The whole event was homemade with help from family. Stand out out pices were the bar, cake stand and the arch the ceremony was under. We also created a coloring book from some old photos for the children along with some sweets and disposable cameras.”

Syman had photographed a friend’s wedding, the photos were great. Syman was fantastic on the day, he was climbing trees at one point to get the shot he was after.

Today’s wedding is absolutely stunning: full of vibrant flowers and filled with colour in every corner. Gorgeous bride and groom Amy & Tim love travelling, which is something they incorporated into their colourful wedding theme. The guest globe is genius; the table plan wonderful, the cake prettily perfect – and there’s so much more to this fantastic wedding, I know you’ll love it!

“Our wedding was very ‘us’ – everything we love and everyone we love all together on the perfect summer’s day. There was a summery, boho, chilled out vibe with the added burst of colour and vibrancy we love from our travels and that make summer so happy and full of life. A perfect day for us is fun, relaxed, full of music, laughter, food, cocktails and dancing under the sun and the stars – and that’s exactly what we did.”

Ria and Jordan’s day is so prettily styled with the loveliest spring flowers – their barn venue is one I haven’t seen or featured on the blog before and I’ve fallen head over heels for this place – I hope you will too!

My wedding flowers were simple and pretty! I was showing my auntie one day what I was thinking of doing just in general conversation. (She is not a florist, but we all call her green fingers as gardening is her favourite hobby and she has an allotment!) She suggested I could do them myself so I asked her if she would help and luckily she did! People kept asking all day who my flowers were by! My bridesmaids had simple gypsophila which my auntie also made, I had my bouquet made by Robert in the flower station in North Chingford London. It was just perfect.

Our wedding was at Pledgdon Barn, Bishops Stortford. The barn was built in the Tudor era. It had been looked after amazingly and the character of the venue was very stong and beautiful. We still remember walking in viewing it for the first time, it took our breath away.

Individual, fun and full of colour and personality - a real wedding at Nyland Manor (31)

The colourful, happy vibe of Lucy and Steve’s wedding is just how I’d imagine the perfect wedding to be. Perfection isn’t about colour palettes or a theme, it’s not even about the day running to schedule or being stress free: the perfect wedding is one where everyone is smiling from beginning to end, where the dancefloor is full, where the best memories are unplanned, unexpected and all the more amazing for it. Today’s gorgeous bride Lucy and super handsome groom Steve show us exactly how it’s done…

We made up the flowers ourselves! This was one of my favourite parts of the wedding prep! Our venue didn’t need much decoration but the marquee did! We did this all ourselves, with help from work colleagues, friends and family. We made almost everything! Table centres, the favours, extra bits that went around the venue! I loved doing all of this.
