Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you have something lovely planned for this evening… and to keep your hearts full of love and happiness I have a wonderfully romantic and beautiful day to share with you this afternoon. I LOVE this wedding – gorgeous couple Louise and Tom are absolutely perfect for the English Wedding Blog with all their fabulous flowers and such stunning portraits by Kathryn Edwards.

“I bought most of the stuff myself… mainly from Hobbycraft, Etsy or Not on the High Street. I was introduced to Elinor Softley who has her own business in decorating weddings and she was an absolute life saver! She completely understood the theme and ideas I had for the day and couldn’t do enough for us. I don’t know what we would have done without her as she dressed the venue by herself on the Friday and helped to take it down on the Sunday! She is amazing. Her company is fairly new, but she is so talented! It’s called Soft Touch Events and you can hire lots of cool things from Elinor…I think I hired pretty much her whole warehouse!

When lovely Jessy Jones got in touch to show me Tom and Natalie’s day I was so excited – honestly, their day is just so pretty and perfect to share with you here. The bride and groom are gorgeous: the flower crown is super sweet and I LOVE the daisies – I hope you will too! Oh, and did I mention the awesome golden dinosaurs? 😉

“We didn’t really have a theme – we wanted the wedding to reflect us both. Flowers were a big part of our wedding, particularly daisies and roses, with zombies, dinosaurs and mermaids thrown in!

Throughout the wedding planning I was most certain about what style of bouquet I wanted and I knew I needed to get the right florist to get the look I wanted. When I met Sharon at a wedding fair I knew she got what I wanted. We had several meetings – I changed my mind several times but we got there in the end. Out of everything I was so excited to see what my flowers would look like – I was not disappointed: the flowers, the flower crown… everything was perfect. Sharon was absolutely lovely as well. I would recommend her to anyone – she really goes above and beyond to make your day perfect. www.sharonsflowerhouse.co.uk

Traditional styling for a timeless English wedding from Lains Barn with Carol Elizabeth Photography (12)

We were at 4 different locations for Ruth and Kieran’s wedding, which offered lots of variety for their photos with some really amazing backdrops. I started at the rented house, which was very quirky with plenty of character. We then drove over to the church wedding ceremony in Abingdon, which is a lovely bright church, quite modern with plenty of space for all the guests. And a really lovely vicar, who was so helpful and accommodating to ensure we had plenty of lovely photos for Ruth and Kieran to remember their day.

Today’s gorgeous real wedding is all about beautiful bride Leigh and her gorgeous groom Karl, their minimal, elegant wedding with a divine bouquet, fabulous stationery and the most breathtaking coastal location you can imagine. Oh, and it’s hard to believe this is true, but they married in November. Just look at those endless blue skies…

We chose to get married at Talland Bay Hotel http://www.tallandbayhotel.co.uk. We looked at a few other venues around Cornwall but Talland was the perfect fit for our small wedding. It is a stunning Cliffside boutique hotel. We booked the whole hotel for 2 nights allowing our guests to travel down from the West Midlands and have plenty of time in Cornwall.

Talland is such an eclectic mix of paintings, pictures, ornaments etc that we didn’t need to style the rooms at all. I added the flowers and a few decorations around the fireplace only. We chose not to have a cake, but we did have delicious desserts and a Cheese Board at the end of the Wedding Breakfast.

Lauren and Aaron’s wedding is so beautiful – and as hydrangeas are in season for most of the summer months, there are some wonderful ideas here for weddings from June through to mid autumn which I think you will LOVE!!

Our wedding flowers were hydrangeas. A very talented friend of the groom’s family arranged all the flowers from centre pieces to bridal bouquets. They were absolutely stunning and all fitted perfectly in the wooden boxes made by the father of the bride.

The venue doesn’t need much decoration as it is so gorgeous already. However I had a few things that I had in mind to make it our own. We scattered jars wrapped in hessian and lace with candles and flowers in them around the venue. My dad had made some big letters spelling out the word LOVE which I put on an old step ladder which I had painted up. To match our centre pieces I had bought two apple crates from applecrates.co.uk which were both personalised with our names and date of the wedding on. We used one for our cards and one had a gorgeous flower arrangement in. Finally, all our guest know we both have a massive sweet tooth, especially the bride! So I made five different types of cookies and had a little cookie bar set up throughout the day.

So many of our wedding trends begin in the US. We fell in love with ranch weddings, escort cards, and then calligraphy – big time – which is brilliant! But sometimes I stop, and I wonder why on earth we need that American influence when English weddings are so incredibly inspiring. Take today – Leah & Alex are just sooo stylish; their venue has aeons of history and character to it, and the day looks to be the most amazing party…

“Leah & Alex were amazing to work with. From the first meeting at my local where they’d come all the way from London I knew we were a perfect match. To return the favour I went down to London for their pre wedding shoot at Kew gardens; they had their first date there, got engaged there and as well as the PWS the wedding theme was all about the gardens. I knew after taking those photos in sweltering June sun (You can see them here http://www.vickerstaffphotography.co.uk/kew-gardens-london-pre-wedding-portraits/) that they were going to be a dream to photograph…… I was spot on.

Have you got a lovely Sunday afternoon planned? I have a treat for you today: the most beautiful Bowes Museum wedding – a venue I’ve driven past many times but never had a proper look at… and it’s magnificent!

This is a perfect, romantic and classic English wedding. The images of the bouquet are gorgeous; beautiful bride Claire and her husband Rick look such a wonderful couple and I love their portraits – so grab a cuppa, nestle into your favourite Sunday armchair, and enjoy!

“Claire and Rick are just the loveliest people, we got on like a house on fire straight away and spent a lot of time together during our first meetings and engagement shoot which i think just made us so comfortable we were more like friends.

The day being at the AMAZING Bowes Museum was probably the highlight for me, as a photographer working there is just brilliant as it has so much character and beauty it made creating lovely images easy peasy!”

The English garden wedding theme is one – quite possibly the only one – which will always be on trend. We love the romance of our home-grown flowers, the greenery and scents of hazy summer days – and it’s a style which conjures up memories from childhood, days in the countryside and magical holidays close to home.

Greenery is a huge thing for 2017 – and we love it to bits. This shoot is full of gorgeous foliage and fabulous styling with softer accent colours and statement blooms. Stylist Lauradana from Wedding Creations combines those gorgeous greens with white and soft pinks to create a feminine wedding style I know you’ll love.

I love the romance of an overseas elopement or a tiny, intimate wedding somewhere the evening sunshine will last forever, don’t you? Even better, al fresco dining on the beach and the views of stunning coastlines all around. I was so thrilled last summer when lovely destination wedding photographer Hannah Duffy asked if I’d like to send a little of my calligraphy to Ibiza in her suitcase. Of course I said yes…

This is the dreamiest shoot, with incredible light and the inescapable romance of a beach elopement. The bouquet is simple and pristine: hydrangeas in beautiful white catch the sunlight as our beautiful bride and groom gaze out to sea. With a stunning Truvelle gown and light suit for the warmest of summer weddings, our bride and groom are perfectly at home here; as newlyweds they celebrate at a tablescape of prettily coloured glassware and light, illustrated calligraphy table stationery.

We both love the vintage scene, but this covers a few different eras! On our invitations, we stated Hollywood Glamour as the dress code and our overall theme was eclectic vintage… we had styles from 1930 to 1950!

Pete made all of our wedding stationery!! He’s fantastic with designing things and he’s very creative… he found inspiration in the Art Deco designs on the 20’s and 30’s and created our very own Great Gatsby style invitations! This meant that we could have the exact format and style that we wanted… old movie tickets! They were perfect for our theme and the guests loved them. It was a labour of love though… these things take time!! Also, our save the date was styled as an old movie poster – again, Pete created these!

Today’s wedding is stunning… full of sparkles, the most amazing flowers and luscious greenery – and with a gorgeous, smiley bride and groom whose style I LOVE!!! This is such amazing inspo for an autumn or winter wedding, with soft colour tones and thrilling textures to the flowers and leaves which set the scene for the whole day. I adore the venue with those fabulous beams…

Bonfire night, sparklers and LOVE for a beautiful winter wedding blog (14)

My wedding flowers were based around anemones. The foliage was very silver, using eucalyptus. The flowers were grey and deep blue. I wanted the bouquets and centre pieces to be unstructured and informal. They’re by Sarah from Bramble & Berry Www.brambleandberry.co.uk

I didn’t do a lot to the venue as it was very clean and crisp with large chandeliers and modern lighting. I brought in sequin table cloths and we put fairy lights up on the back wall. And I had L O V E letter custom made for us by my friend who is a woodworker.

Hey lovelies! How is all of your wedding planning going? Have you discovered Pinterest yet? One of my New Year resolutions was to pin more… I’m not sure I’m keeping up with my ambitions but I do so love Pinterest when I find time to visit – come & follow the English Wedding Blog’s boards here. And do, if you have a sec, pin some ideas from today’s fabulously creative wedding!! Nikki and Dan’s wedding is fab for its stationery which runs through the day and makes a real feature. I love the chalkboard table names, table plan and menus – the stationery (from Norma & Dorothy) ties the whole day together in such a lovely way!

Nikki and Dan were both buzzing with excitement- you could just see it radiating from Nikki. She truly was the definition of a beaming bride, I’m not sure I can find a moment that we photographed when she wasn’t giggling and smiling. Their friends and family were equally happy, it was a pleasure to be part of such a fun and romantic day.
