Welcome to the weekend, lovelies. This is one for snuggling together, taking some time for self care and a little autumn nesting – we’re sending hugs to all of you after this week’s announcements. And to bring a little beauty and extra warmth into your day we have this fabulous pre-lockdown wedding to share with you. Tim & Emily’s day is blissfully beautiful, with rich winter styling touches and the most wonderful elegance and style. These two made a conscious choice to support local businesses, and right now that’s so important: if you’re planning your wedding for 2021 please look for suppliers local to you – it means the world to us!

The breathtaking images from this glorious Bolton Abbey wedding are by Yorkshire wedding photographers M and G Wedding Photography.

My husband and I got married last July and it was…. THE . BEST. DAY . EVER!!! We seriously couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect day, surrounded by friends & family (and most importantly the dog!), in the most gorgeous of venues, lavish florals, scrumptious food, an absolutely phenomenal band and the best of the British summer time weather!

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.

Today’s stunning couple were married at Chippenham Park Hall in the springtime, and styled their day with the most incredible cherry blossom and pink peonies. Maryanne’s dress is incredible: the designer is Jenny Packham and the embroidery detail couldn’t be more perfect for the springtime! She looks beautiful – every bit the English springtime bride – and Adam her perfect match in his made to measure suit, bought in Dubai.

The colour theme was pink, white, green and gold. Both the marquee and church were covered in cherry blossom with real trees lining the aisle in the church. In the marquee the mixture of trees and hanging flowers from the ceiling was truly spectacular! The floral creations were the work of the amazing Lucy Vail. Maryanne told me her favourite flowers were the peonies and hydrangeas – the smells were simply divine!

Miki studios were an absolute dream find. From the moment we first met them for our complimentary pre-wedding shoot, we realised they were not only exceptionally nice guys but also extremely talented and great fun to work with. They made us feel comfortable and relaxed and expertly balanced the requests of the bride / groom / family and friends! They even helped the bride and groom escape when the formal photos were becoming a bit too much! The images they produced are creative and beautiful and we would recommend them to everybody.

Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all staying safe and your loved ones are ok. It’s been one hell of a tough week – but I’m trying my best to bring a little spark of sunshine and joy with some beautiful real weddings. Today’s the turn of gorgeous couple Laura and Jonno, whose luxury wedding at Caswell House is simply wonderful to see. The flowers are insane, the dreamy May sunshine is a welcome reminder that we can all look forward to warmer days soon!

Elliot photographed my sister’s wedding and, we not only loved the final photographs, but had amazing memories about how he was on the day. Elliot has a wonderful way of being there for every moment, without feeling like he’s there the whole time. There’s no unbearable hovering or feeling as though you’re surrounded by paparazzi. He made both myself and my husband relax and enjoy the photography – both being fairly awkward in front of the camera, this was pretty remarkable! He made the whole process fun and comfortable. And, the resulting images are fantastic!

I think it’s my lucky week. I mean it MUST be – the weddings and shoots we’re sharing are insanely pretty! Then there’s my inbox – and the features we have coming up (with yet more amazing couples) are so exciting! Pinch me, someone! ? … anyways, today we have the BREATHTAKING wedding of Sophie & Elliot, who said their I dos at Sophie’s folks house, with a sperry tent from Papakata providing the loveliest backdrop to their day. Their June wedding was the perfect English country garden celebration (hats off to actually being in an actual English country garden, guys!) with styling and florals vibrant and exotic – even including the food! Sophie’s dress is a bespoke design from English Wedding members TDR Bridal – it’s stunning and she looks incredible.

The floral installations are by Pip Holland – Sophie and Elliot’s friend and a florist. Pip worked with her team around the clock for 4 days leading up to the wedding creating a topical paradise. Each table had an individual arrangement, then there was a flower arch and a large ring above the circular bar. All of the bridesmaids had flower rings instead of bouquets and the ring bearer (Sophie & Elliot’s dog!) looks adorable in a flower garland!

So this one’s really close to home for me: a Lake District wedding at one of our finest venues, nestling amongst the highest English mountains in the charming village of Grasmere. The venue is the Michelin-starred The Forest Side – a gem I’ve dined at, organised a photoshoot at, and where my mum & dad used to stay on their Lakes holidays before I was born!

Gorgeous couple Hemal and Katie had the most wonderful Lake District wedding, surrounded by their closest family and friends and with the venue dressed from head to toe in the most incredible florals, courtesy of outstanding florist Kevin from Brackens of Bowness. Their amazing photographer is lovely Tiree Dawson, and their day is already going down as one of my favourites on the blog for 2020 (and yup, I know it’s only January but WOWEEE!!!)

Did I ever tell you how incredibly lucky I feel to do this for a living? Writing about gorgeous weddings, scrolling through eye-dazzling images of love and joy all day long? It’s a pretty special way to spend the days, and I’m feeling incredibly blessed this week with such dreamy content to share with you! Today’s couple are stunning Phoebe & Ed, who married at Childerley Hall in Cambridge and chose our friend and top UK wedding photographer Richard Skins to capture their day. Phoebe’s dress is just….. ahhh I don’t even have words: it’s more beautiful than beautiful has ever been before!

“I fell in love with my dress pretty much instantly; it was the dress I felt the most myself in and could 100% see wearing on the day. I remember walking out of the shop the first time I tried it on and saying to my bridesmaids, ‘I think I might have just found my wedding dress’. I couldn’t stop thinking about it after, which confirmed it was the one for me. The designer is Anna Kara, at Morgan Davies Bridal, Hitchin.

I couldn’t be happier with this week’s AMAZING weddings! Following yesterday’s stunning and colourful florals, today we’re going all white with the blooms, and including oodles of wonderful foliage – oh, and of COURSE we have the most insanely gorgeous couple: Joshua and Rebecca are just fabulous! That dress though…

“I have always been drawn to traditional wedding themes and feel like we managed to get a nice blend of classic wedding stylings with an element of whimsical floral touches. Being surrounded by flowers was my dream and one that we decided to spend more money on. Claire from LilyFee created a real life dream! I call her my fairy god mother. We went for white flowers and lots of foliage. I was desperate for a flower arch and we placed it to the entrance of the marque which was decorated with hanging foliage. I was able to work really closely with Claire and she really made my visions come to life, she is so talented!

Welcome to the week, my lovelies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. We’re kicking off this week with an absolute stunner of a wedding: beautiful Serena & Michael’s Worcestershire wedding has the loveliest atmosphere of elegance and glamour – I just know you’ll love this. Their wedding photographer is new to English Wedding: Nicholas Rogers Photography is based in the Midlands – he gets a brilliant review from the happy couple. Other suppliers include Georgina Scott Bridal Boutique in Stourbridge, where Serena bought that fabulous Martina Liana dress, Secret Garden Wedding Services, Chandni BeautyJon Paul Menswear and Flowers of Kidderminster.

“My mum dried flowers for a year for the confetti, our conservatory was covered for months at a time! We also bought wall paper for the paper cones to put them in. They were so beautiful, all the guests loved them. We assembled the favours ourselves, painstakingly building 150 boxes, putting macaroons in them and attaching a ribbon and a tag to each one. We made our seating plan ourselves from a huge picture frame and printed the table inserts at home.

I can almost smell the flowers… because today we have the loveliest, summeriest wedding of all for you to enjoy. Gorgeous couple Jo and Jack married in Cheltenham on a beautiful early summer’s day. Their barn wedding celebration is just divine: the florals are so vibrant and wonderfully colourful they almost steal the show.

I hope you love them as much as we do! Have the most wonderful Bank Holiday everyone – I’ll hand over to Hannah to tell you more about this fabulously pretty wedding day.

Jo and Jack were wed in their village church in Cheltenham. It was a perfect, quiet and quaint location where only locals and a few scarce hikers would pass by. Imagine sun trickling in through the trees and birds singing, so, so lovely.
