So today is the day I’ve decided to wear a red dress when I get married. I’ll have to un-blue my hair a little, but it will be so worth it. I just love how incredible Liz looks in this red dress. She is absolutely captivating, beautiful – everything a bride should be and then some. And the colour flows through the entire day with pretty florals and accents of red dotted around the decor and styling for this beautiful Pencoed House wedding. Definitely one of my favourite weddings of the year, and I hope you love it as much as I do!

The flowers were amazing and created with such love. My mum did them and she spent months gathering small vases from charity shops to build up colour collections. Some flowers were from a florist, but others we picked together.

Alison and Gerald are brilliant – their flowers are fabulous and their wedding mixes classic styling touches with a sense of timelessness and Hollywood glamour. The pearl strings and champagne table settings are a lovely idea – and everything about their day at the Bull Hotel in Gerrards Cross is pretty, feminine and super romantic.

I love seeing couples getting married later in life. I think Alison and Gerald’s wedding has its own kind of magic: and they look perfect together, don’t you think? Beginning a new journey together as husband and wife is a wonderful thing to do, no matter if you’re twenty-something or fifty-something – and the smiles on our bride and groom’s faces prove that marriage is just as exciting at any stage in life.

Hey lovely! I hope you have some lovely bank holiday plans, and you’re making the most of the last day of the weekend!! We’re on our way back from a little Welsh adventure this afternoon, and I’m excited to get back to blogging this week (I have some gorgeous features lined up!) but first – an absolutely beautiful wedding from Gloucestershire which I know you will LOVE!!

Rebecca and Laurence’s wedding took place at St Peter & St Paul Church of Northleach followed by a marquee reception. This was a very relaxed wedding with a Pimms garden party, band, gorgeous venue decor and a cake made by the couple’s friends.

The flowers were a huge joy. My best friend Kate loves flowers and had helped out with another wedding, so she reassured me we could do it ourselves. The ladies who arranged our church flowers were incredibly helpful and kindly agreed to pick up some extra bunches and offered to condition them (very important and we couldn’t have done it otherwise). We ordered blue hydrangea, cornflowers, irises, pink roses and delphiniums and used a lot of greenery from our mums’ gardens. The Friday before it was all hands on deck, me, Kate and helpers making large arrangements and jam jar centrepieces while two more friends laid the tables. We used lavender and rosemary sprigs, freshly picked, on the napkins which gave a lovely scent.

Hannah’s wedding to Angus is so very pretty – the artistic styling touches are wonderful and give their day a unique look which I adore. The colour palette is fabulous, and I’ve fallen head over heels for their delicate floral arrangements. They married in Yorkshire back in June, and took their county as inspiration for the theme of their day. I love this!

We made all our wedding stationery. A very talented friend of ours had drawn a beautiful picture of us, which we soon adopted as our ‘wedding logo’. We used this when designing our invitations, order of service, table and place name cards, and more!

I researched online- I’d looked at a few different photographers’ websites, but saw Anna’s on Facebook and was really impressed. Her photos were of such a great quality and her prices were the most reasonable I’d found. I messaged her and she arranged to meet us to answer our questions, gather more information and to create a picture of how the photography would work on the day. We got on really well and we were so happy with what she was saying, after that meeting we booked her!

Sarah-Louise and Sam’s big day was a relaxed, country affair at Marks Hall Estate in Essex. I fell in love with their images, which perfectly capture the spirit of their celebrations and love. The brick walls and twinkling fairy lights are a beautiful backdrop for the reception; the gardens are breathtaking for portrait shots.

We were really lucky that our venue didn’t need a lot of styling. The venue spoke for itself really, it’s a beautiful coach house, exposed red brick inside with a really high ceiling and exposed beems. Lisa our wedding coordinator had organised fairy lights all over the ceiling. We had our table flowers done by Sophie Kim. I did a sweet table for the kids that were there too!

Try not to leave yourself too much to do on the day. Be happy to ask for help so you can just enjoy yourselves. Make sure you take a few minutes on your own as a couple to look around and really take it all in!

I just love this wedding to bits. It’s SO pretty – all the flowers, the exquisitely crafted wedding cake, and Stef’s adorable dress (and the way she LOVES wearing it!) – they’re the loveliest couple and I have been so excited to share their wedding with you on the English Wedding Blog!

The flowers from Blue Daisies Florist were the main decoration. We had collected loads of vases which were all different styles and shapes – the florist then displayed these everywhere in the room so wherever you were all you could see was our spring blooms!! I was so pleased with our flowers – they were beautiful and the room just smelt amazing…. everywhere you looked there were flowers. The colours were perfect.

Whenever I look at Jess and Martin’s wedding pictures I find myself smiling right back at the screen. Jess is beautiful; her smile infectious. Their day is full of lovely moments and the prettiest details – and bursts of colour with sunflowers and summer flowers to make my heart sing!

I (Jess) went to a wedding fayre in London with my mum and we bumped into Amanda and James. I loved their style of photography and after chatting to James, I instantly knew they were the photographer for us and they truly were.

Amanda and James are just brilliant, there aren’t enough positive words to describe them. We met for a pre-wedding shoot and they instantly put us at ease. On the day Amanda photographed the bridal party and it felt like she was one of the girls! Amanda and James blended in with our guests and their style of photography is fantastic.
The first time we saw our wedding photos we were absolutely blown away. Amanda and James managed to capture the happiness, magic and details of the day. When we look through our photos it’s like reliving our special day all over again!

Today’s wedding has character, individuality and good old English country charm. I love Kelly and Gary’s choice of The Bull Hotel for their intimate Kent wedding – it’s a great little place and just looks so welcoming and off the beaten [wedding] track! Kelly is gorgeous – and despite Gary at one point not wanting a photographer, I’m thrilled they booked lovely Michelle Cordner Photography to capture their day.

“Our wedding inspiration came from us and how we are as a couple. We are relaxed (sometimes too much!), fun loving and love a quirky building and the countryside. We wanted a Kentish feel to our wedding that was slightly different and not what everyone else does.

We found The Bull Hotel through friends recommending it and after visiting them we knew it would be perfect, exactly what we wanted. It’s an old country pub with beautiful beams and brick walls in the Buttery, the room we would marry in and dance the night away. They have their own wedding organisers to help you right from the beginning up until the moment I walked down the aisle. They were truly fabulous and I’ll always be grateful for the any of the stresses I had to be instantly taken away.

Alex & Laura’s wedding is in the most amazing ‘venue’ – if we can describe a 19th century transatlantic steamship as a wedding venue! I love their creativity in choosing a space which really sets the scene for a memorable and adventurous wedding day. This is all so gorgeous: Laura is stunning in a shorter length dress and the nighttime photos taken after their reception are wonderfully unique and exciting!

SS Great Britain wedding with Bristol photographer Martin Dabek (22)

“Less was more with the SS Great Britain. There was already such an incredible back drop that putting too much onto it would have taken away from the ship. We just added some some fairy lights and bunting to the party space. Alex’s mum made meters and meters of bunting which was a total labour of love! My mum made our wedding cake, put together the favour bottles and we all had a lovely time putting together the table plan. I think there were about 10 different print outs, countless uses of a guillotine!”

Canals have a romance all of their very own, don’t you think? If you’ve ever strolled along a canal before sunset you’ll know how wonderfully tranquil those towpaths can be. The adventure of drifting through England’s hidden waterways is one I dream of experiencing, one day. So Heather and Michael’s day has my heart: their photos by the locks are beautiful; their tipi reception is full of character and quaint old English charm – it’s perfect.

“The ceremony was held in a very low key structure next to a canal in Leicestershire with the reception in the tipi next to it. The venue is fairly new and quite quirky with narrow boats passing by and a bar that looks like a moored up boat.

Heather made all the decor herself and it was lovely. Heather and Michael are expecting a baby so the day was full of lots of lovely emotional moments, which wedding photographer Helen King captures beautifully in the images.
