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.

“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…

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.

Greenery is where it’s at for 2017 weddings. Foliage and textures for a wonderfully organic look make my heart sing. So Phoebe and Wayne’s DIY wedding is perfect to share on the English Wedding Blog, with all its greenery and homemade touches. This gorgeous couple’s day is full of ideas so I am thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

We chose our venue because of its gorgeous setting in the heart of the south downs. We kept the styling very simple, keeping the focus on the lovely surroundings. We hung white lanterns but not much else. Everything that we could have made ourselves, we did. My husband even made our cake table from an old cable reel. I definitely enjoyed it, I hope he did!

We look back at our day and are so proud of what we created and couldn’t imagine feeling as much pride and satisfaction if we hadn’t done so much of it ourselves.

Winter weddings can be delicately frosty, with palest pastels and sparkle. Or you can bring warmth to your wedding style with vibrant, rich florals and a bold colour palette. Either way, opting for an alternative twist to the style of your wedding is a winner!!

“The shoot was organised by Ana Gely A – Photography  and features a winter wedding that is far from the ordinary. “For styling inspiration we tapped into the unique features of the venue where we did the shoot. The Great Barn at Headstone Manor & Museum is a two part estate featuring a manor house museum currently under restoration and a beautiful barn which is used for weddings. The place is steep in history and local traditions. It has recently been reopened to the public and we were lucky to be the first to ever do a photo shoot there.

I adore this wedding. Bolton Abbey is amazing – what a superb location for gorgeous, memorable wedding photos, don’t you think?! Today’s gorgeous bride Vicky’s couture dress is stunning; I love Howard’s outfit, they just look perfect together. And the festoon lighting and sparklers… absolutely incredible. LOVE it all!!!

I chose my dress which was from Lyn Ashworth by Sarah Barrett as I loved her lace detail. I didn’t find a specific dress that had all the elements I wanted but the Lyn Ashworth collection gives you the option to pick one element from one dress and add it to another dress which was perfect. I put all my favorite elements together and made a bespoke dress that I absolutely loved and felt amazing in.

Our reception venue was tepees in the grounds of the bride’s parents house. We personally decorated the tepees with bunting and paper lanterns and also added fairy lighting and festoon lighting, disco ball, a rustic gift table, love sign and photograph wall of the hen and stag dos.
