Hey lovelies! How are you all this beautiful Thursday morning? I’m already planning the blog for August – it’s a crazy busy summer of weddings which is wonderful 🙂 If there are any photographers out there who’d love to see their favourite summer weddings on the blog, do get in touch! I also have a handful of sponsor slots available from today, which I’m offering a lovely saving on – so pop me an email over if you’d like to know more (info@english-wedding.com) But most importantly – Amy and Mark. These two are just gorgeous, and their day is full of individuality and character – it’s just perfect. Images are by lovely English Wedding sponsor and Hertfordshire wedding photographer Becky Harley – and they’re outstanding. Becky gets a glowing review from our happy couple, who have shared all the details of their day with us here. I hope you love this one as much as I do! 

Gorgeous bride Lizzie and hubby Chris got married at the very lovely Kingscote Barn, Gloucestershire. It rained all day but they had so much fun, and the styling touches are just lovely – in white and green, with fabulous floral displays and the most amazing table plan. Favours were mini scented soy candles, which is the sweetest idea, don’t you think?

Kingscote Barn didnt need much styling as it is such a beautiful venue. But I did have a fantastic wedding stylist, English Wedding Directory member The Little Wedding Helper (Kirsten Butler) did such a great job. Her collaboration with Bijoux Floral Design (Becci Hobbs), signsandstationerylove (Tamsin Yates) created the most amazing table plan! Bijoux Floral Design did such an amazing job with our flowers! Becci was incredible, and really made my vision a reality.

I am clinging onto summer this week – despite the gale force winds and rain we’ve had here on the west coast. Let’s brighten all of our mornings with the beautiful Lancashire wedding of beautiful bride Emma and gorgeous groom Rob! Their June wedding was perfect – they were blessed with the most beautiful weather, which was perfect for their Bashall Barn farm celebrations.

These two are more than a little bit gorgeous, don’t you think? Chloe looks amaaaazing – and Marc’s black bowtie is a perfectly elegant look for a classic summer wedding. The venue is Kingston Estate – a magnificent Georgian mansion set in the heart of south Devon. Images are by lovely Sam Box Photography.

We tried to keep everything as classic as possible, white flowers with lots of greenery, black tie for the boys and a pale grey sequinned for the bridesmaids. I am slightly obsessed with everything Michelle Keegan .. so her wedding was massive inspiration for me!! I loved the glamour that they had but still kept it minialistic and classy! I mostly used the internet to look for different things for the wedding, usually after I had trawled Instagram and Pinterest for inspiration!

When I first started out as a wedding calligrapher I illustrated Hampden House by hand for a bride and groom’s wedding table plan! When I saw it in Omair and Sarah’s wedding pictures today I knew it instantly: a glorious venue, unique and instantly recognisable… and perfect for this loveliest of couples! I love everything about their day (I’d love to see pics from their Asian wedding on the Sunday too, but today we’re focusing on the traditional English celebration) – the elegant styling, vibrant florals and oodles of romance from beginning to end. It’s all just so magical! Images are by fabulous Warwickshire wedding photographers and English Wedding Directory members S2 Images.
