Hey there everyone! Did anyone else forget it was a Bank Holiday and get up early for work? Oops… but never mind, because I have the loveliest of weddings to share with you today, courtesy of Newlywed Films. Danielle and Steve were married at Hedsor House early this summer, and their wedding is fabulous. They planned their day to run smoothly and selected some of the prettiest details: a stunning dress, a fabulous designer tiered cake with roses and beautifully constructed rose boquets… you’ll adore this.

Hey lovely! Happy Friday… and before we begin, lots of love to two of my brides: lovely Sophie whose mirror calligraphy was my project of the week, and lovely Ruth who asked me for a marriage certificate and then place name cards in calligraphy. Girls, I hope you get the gorgeous sunshine you’re hoping for! This morning though, let’s admire Nicole and Glen’s vintage wedding from Nettlestead Place in Kent.

There are too many things I love best about today’s gorgeous couple Samantha and Lee: the fact they found out the day before the wedding that Samantha was pregnant (wow!); their budget advice to simply “blow it!” and the beautiful, enchanting images of their day by my friend Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography.

The venue is wonderful (and not far from English Wedding Blog Towers!) with views over Lake Windermere; a little boy almost steals the show with his hobby horse (adorable!) and the entertainers clearly had everyone enthralled.

Transforming a simple village or church hall into a festive and pretty party venue takes ambition, style and vision! Emma and Matthew, along with a small army of family and friends, did a lovely job and their spring wedding at All Saints Church in Crowborough, East Sussex looks wonderful.

Bride Emma is ever so beautiful – her portraits by wedding photographer Steven Dungate, of Duntons Photography, are gorgeous. She positively glows when joined by her new husband Matthew: a radiant couple so clearly full of love.

What happened to your wedding venue in the 1940s? You could be treading in the footsteps of a wartime bride, or even on a film set… as is the case with Yorkshire’s magnificent Denton Hall. In 1942 the venue became a location for filming a romantic war film about a soldier’s story of love lost – and has a romance and sense of nostalgia which should be cherished.

In May, I was asked to contribute some calligraphy to a styled shoot at Denton Hall. Wedding photographer Suzy Mitchell and make-up artist Annabel Bailey styled a fabulous 1940s inspired shoot which took place in the grounds and rooms of the venue.
