James & Rachel’s country inspired wedding at Coombe Trenchard, with Freckle Photography

If I could take a polaroid of every bouquet we feature on the English Wedding Blog, and paper my little office & studio space with all of them it would just be soooo beautiful. Sometimes a gorgeous wedding inspires you to dream crazy things… but that’s ok, and I know we’re going to inspire you with some lovely ideas today. The flowers are only the beginning of this stunning day…

Real wedding at Coombe Trenchard Devon with Freckle Photography (20)

We wanted a wedding with a hint of vintage and a spring country feel. Most suppliers were recommended by Coombe Trenchard (marquee company, caterers, mobile bar). The band we sourced from Alive Network and Emma @ Freckle Photography was found by some extensive internet searching as photography was extremely important for us to get right!

Anna & Stuart’s gorgeous Norwich Assembly House wedding, with Boo Marshall Photography

Anna & Stuart’s Norwich wedding is full of smiles, and fun, and the most amazing atmosphere – the styling of the day is wonderful (I do love kilts!) and I adore the table plan and overall look of the day. Anna is absolutely gorgeous; Stuart looks fabulous. This, my lovelies, is a super wedding and I just know you’ll love it!

Real wedding in Norwich with Boo Marshall Photography on the English Wedding Blog (62)

Anna & Stuart are very calm people and always put concerns for other people, namely their guests as well as myself, at the forefront of their minds.

I think the fact that they had an ice cream cart waiting outside the church, so that guests could get refreshments whilst they waited for the group pics, and after having sat through the ceremony, spoke buckets. It meant that there weren’t any groups of people standing around wondering what they do next, before the reception started.

Genna & Sean’s English chic country wedding in Devon, with Evolve Photography

Genna and Sean’s wedding is so, so beautiful! The venue was covered in flowers, fairy lights and hanging lanterns (all handmade with love), with special touches created on site, made lovingly by friends and family. The venue itself has scenery which surrounded the Ceremony and Reception, making it extra special!

“Words can’t describe how happy we are that we chose Evolve Photography to capture the special moments on our Wedding day! Mark was absolutely fantastic, and clearly extremely passionate, as well as very talented at what he does. This made the day, and photos extremely enjoyable, and meant that we were able to just relax and enjoy our day. Mark was also able to capture the essence of both of us, and our bridal party and groomsmen – allowing the fun that we were having to show through in our photos, which was fantastic! Our photos turned out better than we could imagined, and we would highly recommend Evolve Photography to anyone who can snap him up!

Nick & Lucy’s classic English summer wedding at Woldingham School, with Greg Coltman Photography

Today’s wedding is breathtaking – there are moments here when I forgot to breathe, the images are so beautiful! I love the elegance that runs through the whole day, the smiles, the black and white images, the little details and the spectacular venue Nick and Lucy chose for their Surrey wedding.

“Our flowers were arranged by the lovely Lisa Jordan. We were really keen to stick to soft pastels to fit with our theme, so I went with pale pinks and ivory in my bouquet – sweet avalanche roses, ivory spray roses, ivory freesias and eucalyptus – whilst the bridesmaids had the same in just ivory. We bought all of the vases and mirror plates ourselves for the centre pieces as it worked out a little cheaper, then asked Lisa to arrange displays of white lilies, eucalyptus and grasses. We had pale blue sashes on the chairs so we kept the centre pieces neutral which looked really smart. The mother of the groom put together little posies for the pew ends at the church which we brought with us to the venue in little jam jars to decorate the bar area.”

Emma and James’s relaxed English wedding at Avoncroft’s Guesten Hall, with Rob & Sarah Gillespie Photographers

Today’s is a wedding with breathtaking photography, a truly gorgeous bride and groom, beautiful details and the most amazing venue: “Guesten Hall at Avoncroft didn’t need much decoration as the roof is decoration enough and we didn’t want to take away from it.

“We added some small touches, such as photographs of various family members from key moments in their lives as well as amusing photos from our childhood and strung fairy lights across the hall to add a bit of sparkle.

We made a lot! All the name places were hand-stamped, and we cut out hundreds of hearts from wildflower paper for the wedding favours. We started the handmade elements at least a year before the wedding, so there was no last minute rush or panic.”
