I LOVE this wedding – Amy and Dan had the best homemade table plan I’ve ever seen! I adore the idea of a spot of wild swimming (crazy!) and all the flowers, personal touches with stationery… and Amy’s dress is just wonderful. This is beautiful, country charm at its very best and I hope you fall in love with their day as much as I have!

The ideas here will inspire creative brides and grooms – and the beautiful images will make your eyes ever so happy. Amy is a breathtaking bride, Dan her perfect match. Their day is one which speaks to my heart with personal touches, individuality and romance.

Gorgeous bride Natalie and her husband Raja were married in the Houses of Parliament in June, their reception was in the gardens of the historic and very romantic Chiswick House. This is a very stylish city wedding that had big wows. Natalie walked down the aisle to the chimes of Big Ben turning 12pm, totally magical. They beat the usual bus tours and had all the guests hop on a boat which went down the River Thames past all the big sights of London then on to the reception.

I tried on several dresses and doubted ever experiencing the feeling of finding the ‘one’. Claire Pettibone‘s Viola was a unique and beautiful design which I hadn’t seen anywhere else before. As soon as I tried it on, I knew it was perfect and though I had other appointments booked, no other dresses compared.

My flowers were provided by Wild about Flowers. My bouquet was made up of burgundy dendrobiums, burgundy peonies and magnolia spray roses. The bridesmaids all had a beautiful simple bouquet of cream peonies and the two flower girls carried flower wands.

Two of my very best friends were married at this adorable little barn wedding venue in 2016. It was wonderful to see the place again when lovely Siobhan and Andrew’s wedding appeared in my inbox… the fairy lights took me right back to my friends’ wedding. Those of you who’ve been following the blog for a little while will know I live on the edge of the Lake District; the mountains are my second home and so today’s real wedding couldn’t be more perfect for the beginning of the year.

“I did the flowers myself. I went to New Covent Garden market one very early Saturday morning and bought enough silk flowers to make my bouquet and the two bridesmaids bouquets. I have never done anything like that before and I was fairly pleased with the outcome.”

Siobhan is so, so beautiful. Do watch out for her rocking that gorgeous dress on the dancefloor – where the twinkling fairy lights really do come into their own!

Winter weddings can mean frosty, ice blues and silver, or rich tones, warming reds and candlelight… today we’re thrilled to be sharing these gorgeously vibrant wedding style ideas from a wonderfully talented team of Cornish wedding suppliers at The Cow Shed.

The flowers are rich, red, with textures and tons of foliage. Lighting and candles are key. Rustic styling (twigs? we LOVE!) and mosses make this a wedding styled shoot we could just melt our little hearts right into.

And then there’s the location. The fabulously dramatic coastline and those incredible skies. This is the first time we’ve seen an Ian Stuart gown in a clifftop setting and oh, it’s magical.

Imagine yourselves delightedly warmed in a luxe winter barn wedding, or escaping together for a romantic clifftop elopement as the sun goes down… either way, like me, you will fall in love with today’s inspiration feature. Huge thanks to Ellie at The Cow Shed for submitting this dreamy shoot to the English Wedding Blog, and to wonderful Lucy Turnbull Photography for her stunningly atmospheric and beautiful images.

No two bouquets are ever the same – I think I have the best job in the world, seeing so many beautiful flowers and being able to share the inspiration with you, every day! Today’s are so, so pretty and colourful – the perfect touch for our stunning bride Carly and her perfect match, gorgeous groom Simon.

I love daisies, they are my favourite. So we went with wild flowers for my bouquet, the head table and the centre pieces. My bridesmaids had plain gypsophila bouquets wrapped in hessian. My flower girls had heart wands wrapped in hessian, lace and a few sprigs of gypsphila. My florist was Little Gems Flowers based in Swindon

Beautifully lit, enchanting summer wedding with Dale Stephens Photography (26)

Toby and Sarah’s wedding is wonderful. Their ceremony took place in one of the most beautifully lit rooms I’ve ever seen – the Oxford Oratory. Seeing their day really makes me think about the importance of wedding vows, of promising your love to one another for eternity – and so I’ve included many more of the fabulous ceremony shots than I usually would in a blog feature.

The elegance and style of today’s wedding is spectacular. Sarah is stunning… so is Toby! The images of their day are out of this world and I hope you will enjoy browsing through them as much as I have. The romance of a historic city like Oxford is just wonderful, and walking through the streets, hand in hand as newlyweds must have been amazing.

Bryony and Josh are pretty much the sweetest couple ever. Their summer wedding at Brunel Manor is styled with a delicate pastel touch – I adore the table plan and cake decoration, and Oh, those flowers…

The beautiful bride wears a gorgeous dress and veil from The White Boutique. Teamed with a breathtaking bouquet of roses, lavender, freesias, delphiniums and eucalyptus, it looks wonderful.

The home made table plan in pastel lemon with pretty floral pegs caught my eye: I love how they’ve been creative with colours to make a really eye-catching table plan – this is gorgeous and will be making its way to my Pinterest as soon as I find my iPad this evening! There are so many pretty little details to this day, I know you will love it.

For those of you who love peonies… today’s wedding is wonderfully pretty, romantic and set in the most deliciously landscaped venue. Elizabeth is beautiful – she told me the best thing about being married to Simon is “knowing that day in and day out you will be able to walk with your best friend and share special moments and make memories together.” Isn’t that just so romantic?

We chose specifically to have this venue as it did not need much decoration.  We only had chair sashes, strands of fairy lights in the main barn from Oakwood Events and goldfish bowls with floating peonies.

One of the themes I loved most in 2016 was colour palettes. Brides and grooms have been choosing the most wonderful colour combinations – tonal palettes and contrasting shades and textures to bring their wedding style to life. It’s a creative thing – and I’m all about the creativity! So my third wedding of the year is a perfect example. Beautiful bride Laura and her gorgeous groom James used pink and gold to create a magical, romantic and perfectly on-trend wedding at Cubley Hall in Yorkshire. I hope you adore their day as much as I do!

Welcome back to the English Wedding Blog! If you were here yesterday you’ll have seen the first of our weddings of the year – Jess and Rich’s fabulously colourful vintage wedding in London. Today we’re in Cornwall for a beautifully whimsical, DIY-filled country wedding which I know you’ll love.

“We didn’t really have a theme, everything was very ‘us’. I suppose, understated, elegant, natural, romantic. We made a lot of elements ourselves, we love that sort of thing. We made our wooden signs and painted them ourselves, including the menu and table plan which were made from wooden pallets, and the Bride and Groom signs on the backs of our chairs.

Try not to get overwhelmed by the amount that’s on offer to buy or hire for your big day. It’s not about how much decor you have or having things because you’ve seen them on Pinterest and you feel they are compulsory, it’s about your friends and family being together to celebrate your love. Will and I saved so much by spending time on making our decor, thoroughly enjoyed it along the way, and felt so proud on the day because it was all a result of our partnership.
