I stumbled across Dan and Sophia’s beautiful wedding when we welcomed the lovely White Van Wedding Co. as an English Wedding member. I fell head over heels with the camper, and the atmosphere of this gorgeous rustic wedding – I simply had to share! The video is lovely – it’s by Natasha at Musk Photography and Films – and I’ve included a few stills from the video (which I begged from Natasha!) to go with the happy couple’s interview below!

I hope you love this as much as I do. With love,

Natasha caught so many special moments. Watching the film back a couple of weeks after craziness and excitement of the day had passed really brought all the emotions of the day. It’s my favourite video ever!!!

We were lucky enough to have a friend of the family as well as another photographer on the day. Both we just really loved their style. Natasha in particular got some amazing candid moments.

Love gets sweeter – Charlene was the most fantastic person to have involved in our day. So helpful from start to finish and couldn’t recommend her enough. So very happy that she was so wonderful that everyone adored her – she will be a part of my best friends wedding next year we can’t wait to see her again!

The thing about barn wedding venues is all that lovely character they have… and The Green Cornwall is one of our faves! Its walls tell a story and make a quirky backdrop for beautiful ceremonies, and Hannah & Joel’s day fits perfectly! This is a wedding full of love and joy, with the loveliest details (pom pom confetti – YES!!!) which I know you’ll love. Our gorgeous couple have shared their supplier recommendations and a happy review for our friend Alexa Poppe Photography. Congratulations Hannah & Joel, we LOVE your wedding!

Sometimes the finest plans can get a little – well, rained on. Poured on, even. The fact is, an English summer (as we’ve seen this week) doesn’t guarantee sunshine all day long. Still… Sam and David still proved you can have the most amazing, beautiful day even if the skies have something else in mind! These two are just gorgeous. Their day is full of fun and laughter, with the most beautiful florals and pretty styling touches. All images are by lovely Katie Winter Photography.

How did you choose your photographer?

She was introduced by a friend of a friend, when we looked at her work and social media we loved her approach and relaxed documentary style photography. We then met Katie and were really won over by her passion for photography and excitement about our venue and ideas. We knew immediately that she’d be a perfect fit and one of our favourite suppliers to work with.

Happy Sunday everyone! So today… a relaxed and fun wedding from last summer, with a joyful vibe and a brilliant interview from our lovely bride and groom. Beth and Jez are GORGEOUS and then some – and I adore Beth’s skirt and top, she looks amazing! The story of their day makes a fantastic read (thanks Beth!) and I only wish I knew more about the He-Man and Monty Python references in their ceremony… which gives you a flavour of how entertaining and awesome this day really was!

I’ll leave you to scroll happily through the images by Damien Vickers Photography, with words by beautiful bride Beth.

Sustainability is always a big thing for us here at English Wedding HQ, and so when a shoot like this BEAUTY comes along I get so excited to share it with you! Lovely Gwenda from Green Union designed, styled and coordinated this stunning shoot, which will inspire those of you looking to create a minimally styled wedding (but with wonderfully indulgent foliage) with organic, vegan, biodegradable and ethical styling touches. I’ll leave you in Gwenda’s very talented hands to learn how this fabulous wedding styling editorial came about!

 

In my capacity as a sustainable weddings advocate, I was invited by the very lovely Hayne House team to design, style and coordinate one of their open days, which doubles as an opportunity to capture a fully-fledged styled shoot all in one.

Sustainably stunning - eco wedding inspiration from Hayne House and Green Union (3)

The concept began with an interpretation of the classic glasshouse/conservatory (as befits the main wedding reception structure), with mid-century accents and some boho touches (my self-indulgent favourites!). Overall, I was going for a minimalist aesthetic (clean lines and a restrained colour palette), with maximalist leanings through the densely planted décor and their textural/tonal variations. There was to be a dominant palette of whites, greens and browns, with black, light-mustard and gold accents (and an occasional bee motif, for good measure).

I’ve been so excited to share today’s lovely wedding with you! Ella looks amazing in her floaty light, boho gown and wears an heirloom veil handed down through generations from her great grandmother’s wedding in 1924. Ludo’s her perfect match – I adore that floral tie! These two wanted their day to be very personal, laid back, and fun, with a botanical, English country garden feel. Their wedding is really personal, with Ella doing the flowers and Ludo’s sister making their gorgeous cake. The home made elements make it really special – and hey, who needs a sit down dessert when you can have a wheelbarrow full of ice-creams?!

How did you choose your photographer?

The photography for our wedding was very important to me. My parents asked my uncle to photograph their wedding, 30 years ago, and after taking photos all day discovered my uncle forgot to put any film in his camera. So, beautiful photography that I could treasure forever and show my children, one day, was always high on my list. We knew we wanted informal, natural shots that captured the fun and emotion of the day, and the small intimate moments between people, rather than anything too staged. I did lots so searching and finally found Emily, at Emily Black photography, who was perfect!

Welcome to the weekend… and to one of the prettiest modern weddings we’ve shared. This glorious, elegant and refined day is a delight and I know you’ll love everything about it. Kelly & Nyall are gorgeous, the styling touches are exquisite and the images by Sharon Cudworth Photography are simply out of this world! We share a love of music, and I know these two missed going to Download this summer…. guys, let’s hope we can all make it next year! ?
Kelly asked me to share a big thank you to everyone who was involved in their wedding: “it was seamless, relaxed and perfect”. I couldn’t agree more… from the magical floral styling through to the elegant tablescapes… this is one dreamy wedding!

Have a lovely Saturday everyone,
With love,

This weekend sees the longest day of the summer – and I’ve been so excited to share this glorious June wedding with you lovely lot. Gorgeous couple Harriet & Harri were wed in North Shropshire, a very special place to them both, and chose our lovely friend Warren at Howell Jones Photography to capture their day.

Harriet is stunning in a unique and beautiful Tara Lauren gown From Heart Aflutter Bridal Boutique in East London, while Harri’s made to measure light wool suit is from Mr Start in Hackney, East London. Teamed with a favourite liberty print tie by a maker on Etsy and a simple rosemary + rose buttonhole, he looks fab! Harri’s flower crown completes the country wedding look beautifully.

Good morning lovelies! Have you had thunderstorms? We’re still waiting up here on the coast but I hear it’s been quite exciting in some parts of the country overnight… do send it my way, won’t you? I love lightning!

Today’s wedding is beautiful, and intimate – with only closest friends and family attending, and a wonderfully relaxed vibe. Guests were seated on armchairs for the ceremony, and the vibe was beautifully boho with a flavour of spring. I’ve been wondering if smaller weddings are set to become more popular in years to come… and Chloe and Michael’s day couldn’t be a more perfect example of an intimate wedding.

How did you choose your photographer?

I found Grace through recommendation, of both another photographer and one of Michael’s work colleagues who had their wedding photographed by her.
Once we’d had a browse through her website and spoken to her we knew she was the right photographer for us!

So this wedding is pretty epic. I just know you’re going to love it – Claire and J-D make the coolest couple ever, and with the extraordinary creative contributions from family they put on a wedding which is everything. The flowers are glorious, Claire’s dress is stunning, J-D’s outfit is brilliant and inspired, and the photography exquisite. Grab a cuppa, snuggle down and enjoy this beauty of a summer wedding.

How did you choose your photographer?

We both knew we wanted natural, unposed shots – neither of us are at our best in posed, traditional photos. Our favourite photos are spontaneous and capture a moment. We spent an afternoon browsing Oxford wedding photographer websites looking for photos with this quality. We loved the photos in Dale’s portfolio. We arranged to meet him to make sure we felt relaxed. We had such a perfect morning meeting Dale that we booked immediately.
