Jack and Catherine’s wedding shone from my inbox – their images are so fabulously vibrant, and their day is full of joy, laughter and love. I adore Catherine’s bespoke dress, the floral styling and the ambience of the day which makes me smile every time I look at their photographs. This is amazing and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Our wedding flowers were arranged by Sian and the team at The Flower Lounge, Didsbury. We really cannot recommend them enough, their creations are absolutely stunning and they surpassed any expectations we had. We were overwhelmed by how beautiful the bouquets and table centre pieces looked.

We created a “draw your own self portrait”, inviting guests to draw a little doodle of themselves on a giant gold framed easel, as an alternative to a guest book. We sprayed jam jars gold to hold tea lights and flowers. We hung gold frames from trees so guests could pose behind them for selfies and filled a three tier garden planter with nibbles and treats to keep the guests going throughout the day. They went down really well and we enjoyed creating all the homemade elements of our wedding. Also, with it being late September we knew it could get a little chilly, so provided a basket of blankets to keep our guests warm and cosy.

Katherine and Calum’s wedding is such a beautiful one – this lovely couple were married in a cosy candlelit barn, served up comfort food and mulled drinks and used soft whites and styling touches for their winter wedding. The wonderful images are by Devon wedding photographer Lee Maxwell.

“My flowers were an informal posy of soft, blossomy white flowers (with touches of navy from some anemones). The bridesmaids had relaxed bunches of gypsophila. The florist was Earth Gallery Flowers, who were incredibly helpful in providing some initial advice as to what would work best and what was readily available in winter.

My wedding dress was by Catherine Deane, who creates beautiful, floaty, ethereal designs. The boutique where I found it was The Ivory Secret in Crediton – a gorgeous little shop run by the two most helpful ladies; it is like stepping into a dream. I had been to three shops and seen lots of dresses that I liked, but hadn’t had that ‘this is the one’ moment that everyone talks about. I was starting to dismiss it as a myth… until I tried on what eventually became my dress. Strangely, it wasn’t the one that I was most enthusiastic about when I saw it on the hanger, but as soon as I was in it I knew it was absolutely perfect.

I love today’s real wedding – Nicola and Paddy’s smiles are infectious and I ADORE the rich colour palette of the bridal bouquet. This is a day with chic styling elements and real style and elegance – I hope you adore it as much as I do!

Sally told me, “Nicola and Paddy were a really lovely couple to work with, really easy going and a joy to shoot for. They are so effortlessly natural & relaxed around each other & so clearly in love; it made it a pleasure to photograph them. After a busy season of summer weddings an autumnal wedding made for a nice change. Photographing Nicola & Paddy amongst the colours of the fall really gave this shoot a unique and warm feeling.

Today’s gorgeous couple Su and Mark were married in the summer and their day is so wonderfully personal, quirky and unique – with fish, lego tattoos for all the guests, oodles of home made touches and home made mead (or perfume, depending who you ask!) I also adore the horror inspired wedding cake – such a talking point and really creatively done (truly!) – and the images are fabulous. When wedding blogs encourage you to have a wedding which reflects your personalities, this is exactly what we mean!

Genuinely relaxed and festival style wedding inspo with Amanda Karen Photography (15)

“We had bunting in the marquee, lots of fairy lights for when it got dark, a ‘best day ever’ banner, a big inflatable flamingo and crocodile. The table plan was a map of the world made up of spots with all the places we’d ever been marked on. Each table was assigned a country/place. At the table, there was a photo of a memory from that place and a short story about something funny that happened there.

I know: festival-esque isn’t even a word (even if I try and make it look like one by adding a hyphen). But it perfectly describes the wonderful spirit and sense of fun in today’s glorious barn wedding – and I know you’ll get it when you see the fabulous photos telling the story of Helena and Chris’s wedding day.

“Helena & Chris’s barn wedding had such a fun, relaxed vibe that the vibrant mix of personalities and friendships (and especially the VERY excited kids!) provided so many great collective moments throughout the day, not least as Chris’s amazing Reggae band ‘The Reggaelators’ rocked the house into the early hours until everyone was ready to grab a sleeping bag and hit their tents!”

I love Suzanne and Dan’s wedding – it’s relaxed, homemade, filled with DIY and the loveliest personal touches. It’s also at a winery… which ticks every box for me!

Wildflowers, DIY and the loveliest barn wedding venue for a relaxed summer wedding, with Alexa Poppe Photography (13)

“My mum did our flowers as she’s a horticulturalist and I knew that no-one could do them better. We had Cornish wildflowers in a blue, pink, lilac and white colour palette, and they were arranged in sweet little jam jars.

The venue was a converted barn with beautiful exposed bricks, so we just added lighting, bunting, flowers on the windowsills, and the table decorations. The whole venue and setting was very picturesque, so we didn’t want to gild the lily.

I made the invitations, bunting, table plan display, and cutlery pouches, which also served as name place settings at the table. I did enjoy them as I allowed myself plenty of time to complete them – I’m sure it would have been much more stressful if I’d had to rush.

Jennie & Andy’s wedding is just so wonderfully bright and filled with the loveliest flowers – the long, wooden tables at Dorney Court look stunning – and our bride and groom are such a gorgeous couple – you will love this… I saved it for Sunday so there’s plenty of time for you to Pin away to your heart’s content! Enjoy.

“I had a clear idea on what I wanted for the flowers – colourful, wild and unstructured. We chose to use Siobhan (of La Belle Floral Designs) having seen the beautiful arrangements she made for my friend’s wedding. She tolerated my fussiness about the colour scheme (no purple!!) and let me choose specific bottles from her collection for our table displays. The flowers surpassed all our expectations – as well as choosing a stunning selection of flowers she used herbs in the table decorations and bouquets which gave off a beautiful scent. I would thoroughly recommend her!

Ria and Jordan’s day is so prettily styled with the loveliest spring flowers – their barn venue is one I haven’t seen or featured on the blog before and I’ve fallen head over heels for this place – I hope you will too!

My wedding flowers were simple and pretty! I was showing my auntie one day what I was thinking of doing just in general conversation. (She is not a florist, but we all call her green fingers as gardening is her favourite hobby and she has an allotment!) She suggested I could do them myself so I asked her if she would help and luckily she did! People kept asking all day who my flowers were by! My bridesmaids had simple gypsophila which my auntie also made, I had my bouquet made by Robert in the flower station in North Chingford London. It was just perfect.

Our wedding was at Pledgdon Barn, Bishops Stortford. The barn was built in the Tudor era. It had been looked after amazingly and the character of the venue was very stong and beautiful. We still remember walking in viewing it for the first time, it took our breath away.

Hannah and Terence had decided throughout their planning that they wanted a very relaxed day – they weren’t fussed about formality or traditions, they simply wanted a day of celebration. They managed to do this so well, the whole day felt very natural with real joy. It was a beautiful day, but so cold and Hannah and Terence were real troopers going outside throughout the day so I could do my thing. I loved that Hannah wanted to keep Terence’s jacket on for their portraits – it made it feel completely real.

“The reception area of Layer Marney Tower is already beautiful so didn’t need much adding to it. We had some candles and foliage on the mantelpiece above the massive log fire, and foliage and fairy lights on the stairs and banisters… and that was it really! I wanted a lot of candles so we also had tealights on the tables, along with collections of our favourite books (which some of our guests borrowed to enjoy themselves!) and milk bottles with a few flowers in. We tied the place names to small pots of jam and chutney from Wilkin & Sons in Tiptree (where I grew up) as we thought these would be nice for people to take away with them.

I’ve fallen head over heels for this enchanting winter wedding. Katie’s Jesus Peiro dress is fabulous – she’s truly radiant in every shot and the dress fits their elegant, minimal style so beautifully. I love the rays of sunshine and how magical the early evening portraits look – and the little details for your Pinterest boards make this gorgeous day a perfect English Wedding Blog feature.

I originally headed to Marrime Bridalwear to try on a Pernovia, long sleeve, backless dress, so to finally leave with a halterneck and full skirt Jesus Peiro dress was a complete surprise. I would not have even considered the dress on the hanger, if it wasn’t for my mum and bridesmaid. Reluctantly, I tried it on; yet, it was the only dress that resulted in numerous tears and a huge smile. It even had pockets… I was in love!
Moral of the story: your mum and bridesmaid really do know you best.

More than anything else I value true craftsmanship and style in the wedding industry. Mass-produced, bland styling touches turn me cold… but show me breathtaking style from independent designers and I fall head over heels in love. Today’s wedding inspo comes from the very best: creatives, artisans and designers whose work I truly adore.

The blue dress is Eden by Claire Pettibone – a stunning favourite from her beautiful Couture Collection, supplied by Yorkshire’s White Room Bridal Boutique.
