It’s hard to believe we’re only a month away from Christmas now! [Is anyone as far behind as me with shopping for the big day?!] I’ve been looking for wintry, Christmassy weddings which are really elegant and pretty to share with you all for the last month… Today ladies and gents, brides and grooms – we hit the jackpot. Sophie and David’s wedding at Swancar Farm, Nottingham, has left me equally excited and speechless. The details are wonderful, Sophie’s dress is stunning, the lovely moments are all there and scrolling through all the images left me feeling happy, and super excited to feature such a beautiful day.


You can win my heart a million times with beautiful lettering… and this is amazing!!! I’m head over heels in love with today’s wedding – it’s gorgeous, I love all the writing! The flowers are so pretty – the cake is perfect! And Jas & Will are so good together – their portraits are super sweet! Love this to bits 🙂

“We didn’t really have a theme, everything was very ‘us’. I suppose, understated, elegant, natural, romantic.

A venue bold enough to name itself amazing – in its actual name. A bouquet full of rich reds, statement blooms and delicate tendrils of fern… and the most stunning couple. Today’s wedding is simply wonderful; with elegant, richly colourful detailing and an atmosphere of pure romance. You will love it!

Gorgeous bride Dannii’s bouquet is from Vicki’s Floral Designs in Harlow. The combination of dahlias, protea, roses and ripening blackberries is just out of this world… and the ferns make this bouquet a dream!

Ahh… I can almost smell the sunshine from today’s sublime English wedding – looking at these images is the loveliest reminder of summer, and the details of the day are simply perfect. Stunning bride Sarah has written about her day – and I just love that it was so perfect, this family home is set to become one of England’s prettiest new wedding venues.

“James and I got married at his parent’s house, Midway Manor, in Bradford-on-Avon and we would like to open up Midway Manor to other couples getting married as it is a splendid place.


I was reading today – I can’t remember where – a piece of advice about styling your wedding, and not rushing into anything. The article recommended choosing your venue first and using its decor to inspire your day (something we’ve suggested before on the English Wedding Blog). As soon as I saw Kim and Kevin’s stunning wedding it brought all that advice back: and oh my, did they choose a venue to be inspired by!

There are so many beautiful touches to Kim and Kevin’s day. The bouquet is sublime (and lovely Jennifer Jane always gets that incredible shot! LOVE!) – the table flowers and florals all around the venue are perfect.
