Welcome to the new week, my lovelies. I hope you’ve had a relaxing weekend and a little sunshine! Today’s (pre-corona!) wedding shows how amazing a little DIY can look. Gorgeous couple – and these two are just stunning! – Jo & James styled their day beautifully with help from “an army of friends and family” – and the personal touches make it so very special. Jo’s dress is fabulous – it’s by Adrianna Papell and she bought it from TDR Bridal in Halesowen (who I’m very proud to say are English Wedding members!) She tells us all about her dress shopping experience a little further down, so do keep scrolling. So many beautiful photos full of ideas here – I hope you love this! Remember you can Pin images by tapping the top left corner 🙂
With love,“english

Has September sunk in yet?! It hardly feels more than a few weeks since lockdown… and so I wanted to share this pretty spring wedding with you today. Beautiful brides Hannah and Jess tied the knot days before the world stopped in March, and their sunny, vibrant spring wedding is full of happiness and love. Images are by our friend Mark at Evolve Photography in Devon, and the florals by his lovely wife Natasha at Pumpkin & Pye! The venue is The Green Cornwall (I know, I know… we blogged another wedding there on Saturday!)

I hope you love this wedding as much as I do. Have a lovely Wednesday!

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Today’s wedding is relaxed and fun – with the loveliest DIY styling touches and a vintage vibe – oh, and the prettiest bride! It’s a fabulous wedding and I love it all the more for the fact that Will made all the paper flowers. What a superstar! (I love anything that stomps on the myth that grooms don’t get involved with wedding planning.) This is seriously special, and I just know you’re going to find some brilliant ideas for your own wedding in here. Images are by lovely Katie Winter Photography. Have a wonderful day everyone!

How did you choose your photographer?

We had seen Katie at a few of our friends weddings and when we saw their pictures we knew she was the right person for the job. When we met Katie for the first time it was like chatting to a friend and the communication with her from that point on was brilliant. She really listened to the sort of photography we wanted and completely took that on board.

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.

Ah… the weekend awaits and it looks like it’s going to be a sunny one! Before we head up into the mountains I have a stunning wedding to share with you – it’s from last summer and you can almost taste the August sunshine! Tom & Alex’s day has everything: it’s beautifully styled, they both look amazing, the details are on point and these two are so loved up it’s melting my wedding bloggy heart. Bonus points for the boat… this is an epic day and I just know you’ll love it!

Have a lovely Friday!

We searched for a photographer who would capture the excitement, feeling and emotions of the day. We also wanted the photos to be bright, colourful and creative, this is when we stumbled upon Greg’s portfolio at a wedding fayre and knew he was exactly what we were looking for.

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?!

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!

A perfect wedding to share with you on a Friday… Phil & Chrissy’s day is full of fun and colour, it’s elegantly styled with a rustic flair. The venue is Trevenna Barn in Cornwall and the day was captured by lovely Tracey Warbey Photography. I absolutely can’t get enough of these two – this is fabulous!

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

Trevenna Barns was absolutely stunning. The views and the way we were able to have all of our close family and friends in the barns was special to us.

Morning lovelies! Today’s wedding is cute as can be with little wedding place settings made of Lego and a gorgeous bride and groom! Jenny and Chris were married at Fairyhill in South Wales and they were the lucky winners of Hannah Timm‘s ‘win your wedding photography’ competition! Hannah told me these two were such a lovely, creative couple it was a joy to be part of their celebrations.

This venue is simply stunning, filled with colour and creative touches: the whole place is so cosy and atmospheric with twinkling lights and fabulous lighting (we’re loving the neon!)

I’m in love with today’s wedding. I’m in love with Gilly’s sparkly beautiful dress; I’m in love with the styling details and the story of Gilly and Den’s day. I’m in love with the gorgeous photography from lovely Hannah Larkin…. this is all just so wonderful and I have been ever so excited to share it with you! Before we dive into all the images though, I want to share something important with you.

Gilly told me she felt an enormous amount of pressure to have the most pinterest perfect styled wedding, because she thought that is what people would expect from her as a wedding planner. Den was amazing at keeping her grounded and reminding her that this was their day and they could do things however they liked.

I’m sharing this with you because Gilly and I both want to show that you can personalise your wedding too, so that your big day represents you as a couple. Don’t aim for perfect; instead, aim for a day which is personal, which says “THIS IS 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.

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.

Happy Tuesday, lovelies! Are you doing ok? I wanted to brighten your day a little with this beautiful Nottingham wedding – it’s glorious and full of love and relaxed, happy vibes. Lizzie and Steve look AMAZING, the garden theme is beautiful and all the little handmade touches are just WOW. (Felt flowers are the future!!) Then there’s the sports day, which looks so much fun! The venue is the Walled Garden at Beeston Fields- a unique marquee wedding venue in Nottingham set within the grounds of a Victorian garden. All images are by lovely Nathan Walker Photography.

How did you choose your photographer?

Having been to a few weddings we didn’t want the normal staged pictures with the constant stopping to try a new Instagram pose every 10 minutes. We are more of a laid-back fun couple and wanted our pictures to reflect that. We knew that we wanted to use a photographer local to the wedding venue and who reflected the same ideas as us. After trailing through websites and recommendations, we eventually found Nathan from a google search and immediately liked what we saw. After a lovely hour long skype chat, we quickly realised that Nathan was the guy for us.
