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!

“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.

Village hall wedding styling ideas from Northumberland with Andy Hudson Photography (5)

If you’ve ever lived in a little English village, you’ll get how perfectly these images capture the spirit of such a place. I’m a village girl – I grew up in a tiny Cumbrian village, moved away, moved back to another Cumbrian village and put roots down here – I just love village life! So Clare and Phil’s day leapt out from all of the submissions in my inbox for today’s real wedding feature. My fave pic is the one with the whole bridal party sat by the wall… it reminds me of the lyrics to Pulp’s Disco 2000…

“Clare & Phil were married in Clare’s home village of Felton, a small rural village about 10 miles outside of Alnwick in Northumberland.  They had their ceremony at the local church before moving to the village hall for their reception.

Traditional Oxford wedding styling for a pretty summer wedding with Carol Elizabeth Photography (35)

Caswell House in Oxford was the perfect venue – it’s a beautiful venue with lots of areas for photos. The team at Caswell are incredible, they made every effort on the day to make it special, including bringing canapés during the photos!

Hannah and Tim are fortunate enough to have a very talented family friend who arranged their venue flowers and Hannah’s Nan is a retired florist so she arranged the bouquets. Most of the flowers were sourced from Green & Gorgeous flower farm and supplemented with some supermarket flowers and greenery from home. The rented milk churns and watering cans, vases and jam jars were perfect for other displays and table flowers.

I love all the thought and time Jess put into styling her wedding to Antony! The detail of her dress and hairpiece are so pretty; I adore the bunting too. Everything about this day sings of summer, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do! Have a glorious day, everyone!

“The wedding was all my brainchild. It was as much as a surprise to Antony on the day as it was with everybody else. Luckily I had time 2 and half years of planning time which was important to me as I wanted to be involved in every process! It started with a mood board on Pinterest, lots and lots of car boot sale and charity shop trips hunting for tea cups and saucers, craft weekends and days spend tackling the Amazon which was my inlaws’ garden. I can’t take all the credit: I have a fantastic family who helped make my dream come true. In particular my mother in law who spent hours and hours shopping, painting and gluing!

Happy Friday my lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a brilliant week and are ready for the weekend… which starts, for me, pretty much now!!

Super lovely English Wedding Blog sponsor Ayshea Goldberg got in touch a little while ago  with this lovely wedding from May. She told me the weather wasn’t great (VERY windy and chilly) but Krissy and Simon still insisted on going to the beach for their photos – and we’re both thrilled that they did!

“The day was full of homemade details, Krissy’s nanna had made the silk flower bouquets (which looked really nice), and Krissy made all the bunting and table centrepieces herself. The cake was made by Simon’s Mum in their favourite flavours – including a gluten free option. Their cake topper included a little black cat as they have a rescue cat called Winnie. They wanted a very DIY, easy going vibe which is exactly what they achieved.”

Gorgeous Hertfordshire bride Anita is making a splash of fabulous colour on the English Wedding Blog today. Her vintage inspired styling is balanced with vibrant accents, and I’m in love with her Sally Beam wedding dress – isn’t it fab? Together with groom Naoto they planned the perfect day, and I love how refreshing their styling is. I hope you’ll adore it too!

“I had mixed, bright flowers including roses and gerberas. I wanted the flowers to add a burst of colour and fun to the church and venue. Florist Sioned Rogers works alongside ‘Dress it Yourself‘ who did an amazing job of decorating the venue. I wanted a vintage picnic feel so I went for gingham tablecoths, bunting and lots of vintage containers and books to dress the tables. I made the table plan with a chalkboard and then had silk flowers stapled around the frame. It was actually quite fun to make and lots of people complemented it!

Thistles and kilts for a Scottish themed wedding in Penrith, with Jessica Lang Photography (12)

Today’s wedding is wonderful. A glorious mix of Lakeland and Scottish styling touches, with home grown flowers (all of them – isn’t that amazing?!), DIY details and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. The venue is lovely Askham Hall, which looks fabulous and has the most incredible gardens for outdoor shots. I think my fave thing about Cally and Colin’s wedding is all the help they had from friends and family to bring their day together, and all the personal touches – an heirloom kilt; hand painted table names; oh! and a genius idea of a song from the best men which Cally explains in her interview below. You’ll love this…

A friend and colleague recommended Jess, then we met and viewed her portfolio and loved the natural, candid shots and gorgeous scenery. Jess seemed able to capture the best of every aspect in her photographs, and her relaxed and bubbly demeanour put us instantly at ease. We knew straight away that she was the right photographer for us.

If you love summer flowers and dream of an opulent, gloriously fragrant summer bouquet – then today’s wedding is going to blow your mind! The flowers are exquisite – and then some. Beautiful bride Hannah is breathtaking in full lace sleeves and a glorious Caroline Castigliano gown while her rather gorgeous groom Will is every bit the country gentleman.

Their marquee wedding has the loveliest styling ideas with hanging floral decoration, huge centrepieces full of colour and even blossom trees to create the country garden look. The table plan is my fave with prettily folded cards set amongst yet more florals catching prettily in the breeze.

All of the flowers were styled by lovely Susie Hart of Hart Company, who brought together peonies, hydrangeas, roses and cornflowers to create the pretty bouquets for Hannah and her bridesmaids. Hydrangeas were key in the hanging chandeliers, which incorporated foliage and tender ferns for a looser shape and wonderful texture.

Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”
