When I spotted this wedding in our calendar for today I wanted to cartwheel down the street. It makes me SO happy! I absolutely love the joy and colour in today’s wedding – and beautiful Amo and Shayan are the absolute best! These two lovelies tied the knot at Elmore Court last summer, and chose the venue for its flexibility: to have a classic English wedding with big white dress and black tie, with a formal day reception… then transform the whole event into a vibrant and colourful Indian wedding reception complete with drummers and a fabulous party atmosphere. And boy, did they nail it or what?! Images are by Cotswolds Wedding Photographer Dan Morris, and I’ll leave you with lovely Amo and Shayan to tell you about their day!

I am THRILLED to be sharing this stunning wedding inspiration with you today. Not only is this all head over heels beautiful (Jasmine & Conor are gorgeous together, don’t you think?) I feel as though we’re turning a page to a new chapter for diversity on English Wedding. It’s been a while since I wrote about making some changes to become a more diverse wedding blog, and I’ve been searching for the perfect header image for the blog. The happy news is, we found it. And I’m going to LOVE looking at this every time I log on to the website! I hope you do too!

We end the week with a lovely styling inspiration sent in by Sandra from Fabulous Functions UK and Clare of Barefoot Photography. With ombre themed centrepieces and a banquet style table setting, this is traditional styling with an eclectic twist: ombre themed centrepieces and a riot of blooms with copper and gold accents add luxe, and our bride in a Watters gown is just stunning, radiant on her best day ever.

I will leave you in Sandra’s capable hands to introduce the shoot and explain how it all came about. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone, with love,

Couples looking for inspiration for their venue decoration get to see how an empty function room can be transformed into a magical wedding world. The Bear Hotel in Hungerford is a gorgeous wedding venue featuring several event spaces, a terrace and a beautiful secret garden. We show how the hotel can be transformed into a luxury wedding venue for an intimate wedding. The overall transformations was a delight to the senses.

How did you choose your photographer?

I found Rachel initially on Instagram when looking for photographers based nearby, and with her being from my hometown of Liverpool and coming across really bubbly and fun on her page I arranged a meeting. Once we met and after looking through some of the weddings she had previously done we were both sold.

Morning lovely! Today we join stunning bride Sheila and her handsome hubby Paul, who were married in Ely, Cambridgeshire. These two are adorable together, their day shines with happiness and I love every moment of it.

How did you choose your photographer?

Fiona was recommended to us by another photographer. Once we saw her style of photography, we knew she was the person we wanted to capture our day. We were also lucky enough to have Jesse as a second photographer.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Fiona and Jesse were brilliant. They were very thorough and incredibly well organised. Fiona struck a balance between guiding us through the day with helpful suggestions and capturing the day naturally. We had a lot of confidence that they’d do a great job and the photos were incredible. We were (and still are) so happy with them.

I’m over the moon to be sharing this stunning wedding with you today. Chantel is just gorgeous; Andrew is as handsome as can be… and when these two are together their love just shines!! I adore Chantel’s dress (and the nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat story behind it), the elegant and modern styling and the joy that runs through this beautiful day. Huge thanks to lovely Carla Thomas Photography, whose images are absolute perfection. She gets a fantastic review from our happy couple – and a glowing recommendation from me too! I hope you love today’s wedding as much as I do.

How did you choose your photographer?

I met Carla at the Excel Wedding show where I was able to go through her portfolios and get a sense of her company and how she worked in general. Her work looked amazing and she made me feel at ease straight away which was a big thing for me and the deciding factor. I then went home and discussed this with Andrew who was able to get a sense of Carla’s work through the booklets and literature she had given me and he also was in agreement that her work looked great.

What better on a blustery Monday morning than a riot of glorious colour and a beautiful wedding to share? Today we’re joining gorgeous couple Kiran and Ross who were married at Stoneleigh Abbey in Warwickshire, and who chose lovely Hannah K Photography to capture their day. Kiran’s red lengha is just stunning: beautifully embroidered and made for dancing! We love how she teamed it with two dupattas: one with stunning gold trim for the daytime, switching up to a tartan version to match Ross’s tartan for the evening do! Lovelies, I hope this stunner of a wedding brightens your day.

How did you choose your photographer?

We did lots of online research and instagram digging! Having shortlisted 5 we telephoned each and we got the best vibe from Hannah! She made us feel so relaxed and comfortable…great as we were a little apprehensive about being in the spotlight and having so many eyes (and lenses!) on us.

I thought I was anti-racist. Now I know nothing I’ve thought, said or done has ever been enough. I’ve acted irresponsibly as a wedding blogger and publisher, and from today I want to change everything. I sent this blog post as an email to our wedding supplier contacts and I’ve had 10 replies to date… so I’m reaching out to all of our readers because I need your help to make this happen!

I want to create something positive and permanent to support black brides and grooms, and black-owned wedding businesses in the UK. I’ve been reading, listening and learning to some of the amazing voices out there – Chenai at By Chenai, our lovely friend Cynthia at Oui Madam Bridal and Carla Thomas on the Via Airmail podcast, who led me to Nova Reid’s Tedx Talk.

Hey lovelies! I’ve been saving this glorious shoot until the end of the week because it’s just so special – the colours are just WOW, the bride’s Amki lehenga set sparkles and shines beautifully – and the look is so elegant, dramatic and romantic all at once! Lovely Charan from Ivory Events & Weddings sent this in, and honestly, my weekend just wouldn’t be the same without it. Don’t miss the list of talented wedding suppliers who brought this dreamy photoshoot to life: scroll all the way through to see everyone involved. Over to Charan with the details…
Ivory Events Stapleford Park wedding styled shoot (20)

I wanted to provide an Anglo-Indian inspired shoot to couples out there who want to tie in their British upbringing and celebrate their Asian heritage. The table layout illustrates something a little different to the ‘normal’ wedding by using a non-traditional colour palette too. I was inspired by interior design magazines where the colour palettes are now bursting with calmer and softer colours.

THREE fabulous dresses, delicious styling, and a celebration filled with pure joy – this is just one of the most wonderful, captivating weddings we’ve ever seen. I am head over heels with Priyal and Dan’s day, and I hope you will love it too! The photos really do speak for themselves – but don’t miss Dan & Priyal’s interview at the end of the feature. It’s a bit of a treat for me when a groom fills out our interview form, and Dan’s words are a lovely read: from the tear in his eye as he saw Priyal walking down the aisle, to his delight when she was the first to make a speech, to his very excellent tip about not drinking 3 vodka shots after the first dance… Images are by the awesome MIKI Studios, who I am thrilled to say are members of English Wedding.

Asian fusion wedding style from Euridge Manor in Wiltshire (5)

Love meets the romantic Lost Orangery at Euridge Manor in Wiltshire. The Lost Orangery, a highly sought after wedding venue for exclusive weddings, is the perfect backdrop for any Asian fusion wedding.

Seating guests up to 200 in the Ballroom. And room for any type of marquee you wish to take your guests beyond the 200 mark. On a May morning, we created a romantic, country garden fusion wedding shoot. The idea behind the shoot was to showcase how you can take two cultures and bring them together to create a very romantic English style wedding.
