Gemma and Mike set the scene for their day by sending all of their guests gold tickets wrapped in chocolate bars as invitations. And this won my heart from the second I knew – they sound fabulous! Their day was themed around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with lots of lovely touches bringing the theme to life and some STUNNING portraits which take my breath away.
I asked Gemma to share her best advice with all of you lovely brides and grooms out there: “Don’t get stressed out about the wedding, and make sure you have the day that YOU want. You don’t always have to please everyone else.” See more...
Emerald is my birthstone, and green has always been my favourite colour – as a nature lover I adore weddings with tons of green foliage and styling touches. Emma and Steve chose shades of green to style their day at the fabulous Deer Park Country House Hotel in Honiton, Devon. Their wedding is simple, elegant and understated – and the bride and groom are gorgeous.

Today’s wedding is sublime. It’s timeless, sophisticated, and fuses contemporary styling with inspired nods to history and old English grandeur. Look closely for the tap shoes, admire the fabulous stationery (by my friends at Noble Fine Art), and join me in falling head over heels for this stunning Castle Howard wedding.
“Castle Howard has the most beautiful exterior and interior. We had candelabras up the grand staircase and candelabras along the three long tables in the Long Gallery, not very often done at Castle Howard (where there are usually round tables).
It’s really important to me to feature REAL weddings on the English Wedding Blog. For me, that means not importing the most lavish or unusual weddings from overseas photographers, but sharing UK weddings from my photographer friends. And Anna and Dale’s wedding strikes me as one which is elegant, timeless and uniquely English in flavour. They’re gorgeous; their day is simply styled and looks lovely, and I love their images too!

The weather was perfect – sunny skies and a warm summer day for people to enjoy the grounds all day long and well into the evening celebrations. See more...
Subtle colours and your own personal style are all you need to make your wedding perfectly, beautifully YOU – and today’s gorgeous bride and groom show us just how it’s done. Their day is elegant, with touches of glamour and timeless charm – and it’s as full of love and laughter as can be.
Styling is subtle and sophisticated: the flowers use green foliage and white ranunculus. “We decorated the tables ourselves with long vases with ranunculus and gold and ivory petals scattered around.”
