Hey there beautiful! I have a gorgeous wedding to share with you today – Leanne & Charlie’s day is elegant and sophisticated, full of contemporary styling touches and with so much love and laughter you can almost taste the atmosphere. It’s a stunner – and captured brilliantly by our lovely friends, UK and destination wedding photographers MIKI Studios. Leanne is incredible in a Halfpenny dress, while Charlie looks amazing in a tailor made suit by John Lancaster at VSmono. I’m thrilled to be able to share Leanne & Charlie’s wedding video as well as their photos with you today – it’s also by MIKI Studios, who get a glowing review from the VERY happy couple!

We met Mick and Ash at our of our friend’s weddings the year before and totally fell in love with their work. It was so different, quirky and captured the essence of the day. We were pretty set of what we wanted for our big day and knew they could deliver.

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.

With love,

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.

Hey lovelies! I have an outstanding wedding for you today – this beauty caught my eye for the fabulous designer stationery, created by the bride and groom! It’s chic, elegant, minimal and utterly beautiful for it, as are our gorgeous newlyweds. Honestly, these two have my heart! Stunning bride Anna looks amazing in a Mikaella dress from Brides of Berkhamstead (who get a glowing review for everything they do!) and Kevin looks ever so handsome in a fabulous quality grey suit with pocket square. I absolutely love the images by lovely Katrina Matthews Photography, which capture the joy and ambience of the day beautifully.

I know Katrina from school, and once we’d seen her work it was the easiest decision to make! We’re so pleased we could support the business of someone I’ve known for so long.

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.

Welcome to Monday everyone! How was your weekend? I hope you’re staying safe and well with everything that’s going on in the world right now. As ever, I want English Wedding to be a beautiful distraction, an escape from the day-to-day and a little reminder that normal life – and love, and weddings! will resume in time. Today’s is Billy & Bessie, whose outdoor wedding at The Swan Hotel in Bibury sings of summer days and love and laughter. The bride and groom are gorgeous, the day is moments of love and magic, and the setting is insanely beautiful – the word “quintessentially” was invented for this place! Bessie told us overall the day was just perfect – “the best day of my life!!!” and for me today scrolling through Sam Bennett Photography‘s gorgeous images of their day has been an absolute joy.

I LOVE a local wedding! Living on the edge of the Lake District is a dream. We’re there every weekend exploring the mountains (and valleys, right now!) and the landscape never fails to take my breath away. Needless to say, it’s my favourite place for weddings and so sharing Jen & Alex’s day with you today is soooo exciting! Most of all I love their day for its relaxed and elegant vibe. Beautiful bride Jen’s dress is non-traditional…. stunningly slinky with a daring thigh split and incredible back detail, it’s by Atelier Pronovias. Alex looks fantastic in chinos and a classic white shirt (because suits are NOT a rule…. or if they are, they’re the first rule to break! I love this look!) The gorgeous couple chose a few of my favourite suppliers for their day: lovely Helen Jane Smiddy was their photographer; Kevin from Brackens of Bowness (“the unofficial god of flowers”) provided their amazing florals, and talented Charlotte of Sugar Ruffles designed their gorgeous wedding cake.

Good morning lovely! We have a week bursting full of weddings ahead – and today’s is fabulously glamorous, elegant and stylish. Gorgeous couple Emily and Adam tied the knot at Le Talbooth last May, choosing the very excellent D&A Photography to capture their day. Emily’s dress is a stunner – and the boys all look fantastic in black tie, don’t you think?

Relax & enjoy this beauty, it’s a special one!

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

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

We loved the simplicity of our venue, we felt like we didn’t need any extra decorations because the grounds were already so beautiful.

Our last wedding of the working week is this fabulously chic and modern celebration from Syrencot in Wiltshire. Yasmin is stunning in her Blue by Enzoani gown, and Mark every bit the English gent in a gorgeous number from Swagger & Swoon. Every detail is elegant and tasteful, as well as being beautifully captured by lovely Natasha from Honeydew Moments. Oh! And the clue’s in the name there… don’t miss the STUNNING golden hour portraits this lovely wedding photographer is known for! They’re towards the end of the feature and every bit worth the wait!

Morning beautiful! Ah – isn’t it lovely to have an extra day of weekend though? We’ve just basically been outside the whole time, away from humans and exploring nature. It’s been bliss! How about you? I’ve been thinking about wedding blogging – sometimes it just feels like pure, blissful escapism. I hope you get a flavour of that from reading the blog too! Looking at beautiful weddings all day is an absolute joy and today’s takes stunning to a whole new level! Charlotte and Alex are gorgeous, and their day is just amazing from start to finish – you’re going to LOVE this!

With love,

I also have a bit of a love for pineapples so there was literally pineapples everywhere from our wedding invites, to the bottom of my shoes (Aquazurra), to my flowers and the copious amount of decorations!!

I bloody love this wedding – it’s full of love and laughter and FUN and hugs. There are belly laughs, there are beautiful styling touches. The setting is fabulous and the story of the day makes me smile. Oh, and Nicola and Alex are the most gorgeous couple! This is exactly how I imagine weddings after lockdown to be: the most amazing celebrations full of glorious contact and friendship and happiness. And the photos by super lovely (and major talented) Yorkshire wedding photographer John Hope tell the story of Nicola and Alex’s day beautifully.

Talton Lodge is a fantastic tipi wedding venue near Stratford-upon-Avon. Nicola & Alex were married outdoors beside ancient acacia trees with the backdrop of the beautiful gardens and 300 year old Talton House. The tipi structure here is up all summer long; they made the most of the space with Victorian fairground games, making the most of the bouncy castle and hiring a roaming band to jazz up the atmosphere.

Welcome to May, lovelies. I thought we’d kick off the month with a truly enchanting wedding to lift our spirits. Valerie and David’s May wedding is unique and beautifully memorable, with lilac as the main wedding colour inspired by their favourite flower wisteria, and yellow accents for bright and cheerful contrast and sunshine. Coming from Cambridge and Southern Ukraine, David and Valerie’s day combines their little world in creative ways, with Ukrainian delicacies and wedding games – oh, and the ‘stealing of the bride’ tradition! The look is very much a traditional English wedding, with beautiful sunshine and the most magical sunset over Richmond Park at the end of the day.

Valerie’s wedding dress is breathtaking – the beautiful bride searched high and low in London without finding her dream dress, then on a trip to Kiev to visit friends she went to bridal boutique Anne Mariee and fell head over heels in love with this stunning designer gown. Valerie had a lot of compliments on the wedding day and she really loved her dress – and I can TOTALLY see why!

Nothing can brighten a hump day like a stunningly beautiful wedding… and this one is EPIC! Our stunning bride and groom tied the knot on the edge of the Lake District (pre-lockdown!) and their day is filled with sunshine, love, laughter and the most wonderful florals. Eden Barn wedding photographer Howell Jones Photography gets a brilliant review from the happy couple – unsurprisingly, as the images of their day are just fabulous!

Susie made her own dress – and the delicate fabric skirt and beautiful lace are perfect for a summer wedding – she looks incredible, don’t you think? Do scroll all the way through their images to see Eden Barn in all its glory – and some hilarious shots with a life size cardboard Tom. There’s also a supplier list for other Eden Barn / Cumbria wedding couples below. Enjoy this, lovelies!

With love,
