A beautiful tipi wedding in Devon with Freckle Photography (13)

I’m head over heels in love with Josie and Gareth’s countryside wedding… the photos are fabulous, the location is stunning, I think every detail is perfect. Josie is just so beautiful and Gareth looks fantastic. I adore the heather, the bouquet is amaaaaaazing, the orders of service are gorgeous…. what’s not to love?

The theme for the day was rustic countryside with spectacular tipis and local flowers and food. Josie told me she got a lot of inspiration from wedding blogs and pinterest but choose wedding suppliers through research and recommendations.

If you ever needed proof that you can have a beautiful wedding, on a budget, and make it look even better than all the weddings you see on major wedding blogs – then beautiful bride Charlotte and her handsome groom Jay are here to show you a thing or two. Their wedding is sublime. The location is stunning, the details are gorgeous, and the images are out of this world…

I always look at the guy’s suits when I’m choosing weddings for the blog – and in this case, Jay’s shoes are pretty fab as well! Charlotte told me “We always wanted the men in something a bit different and wool like (especially seeing as though it was a winter wedding) and we just couldn’t find anything like this to hire, and didn’t have the budget to have something made just for Jay. In the end we ended up finding the perfect suit in Next and luckily we could get them all in everyone’s size.” I think they look great.

Something to brighten your day, my lovely wedding blog friends… beautiful summer wildflower bouquets and the most adorable troupe of flower girls you’re ever likely to see. Sam and Anna’s wonderful Yorkshire wedding will go down as one of my favourites of all time. Their day is full of fun and laughter, love and happiness, and every image tells a story of its very own. Some have made me grin, others give a warm glow…

Real wedding at Hazlewood Castle in Yorkshire with Ian Wallace Photography (46)

Anna is an incredibly beautiful bride. Her smile is infectious: with Sam at her side they make a gorgeous couple. I love the portraits Ian captured of them both around Hazlewood Castle: it’s a venue with knockout looks and some amazing photographic locations. It’s also steeped in a history of kings, knights and historical tales – and I love the romance of adding your own story to the centuries gone before at such a fascinating venue.

Today: wise advice from Nana that paid off beautifully; an unexpectedly amaaaaaazing wedding dress, and the cutest, happiest couple ever. Monique and Adam are gorgeous. I love their style, the way they go together like peas in a pod… and oh, the blossom cheers my heart this morning!

I had so much fun at Monique and Adam’s wedding; it was just so relaxed and happy from start to finish. I had met up with them both in York for their engagement shoot the week before so I already knew that they were going to be naturals in front of the camera on the day – despite Adam being less than keen on having his photo taken! The weather forecast wasn’t great but it ended up being dry all afternoon and we were able to make the most of the little orchard at the back of the hotel for some lovely portraits. Monique was such a beautiful bride, and has the most infectious smile! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming it was one of those wonderful weddings that didn’t feel like work at all!” ~ Laura Calderwood Photography

Huge thanks to lovely Natasha from Pumpkin & Pye for sharing her gorgeous boutonnière design with us – I adore the flowers, which go perfectly with the stunning rose and serenity bouquet project we featured a few weeks back. Natasha used gorgeous silk flowers from Afloral.com. The boutonnière is just the most adorable creation and looks so much fun to make. I hope you love it as much as I do!

You will need:

Select smaller flower heads, sprigs of foliage and any berries or small succulents you would like to use.

My best friend from school gets married next weekend and I really can’t wait for the day. It’s going to be all kinds of amazing! 🙂 I love that they’ve chosen to have a spring wedding: there is something enchanting about this time of year, don’t you think?

Spring weddings on the English Wedding Blog. Carol Elizabeth Photography (3)

Visually, spring is just so beautiful. Blossom is all around; seasonal bouquets include lovely tulips, anemones and muscari (some of my absolute favourites) and your venue’s gardens will be starting to burst into life. You may be lucky enough to find a carpet of bluebells or even primroses for your wedding pics, and in late spring there’ll be wisteria-covered walls and beautiful magnolias creating the most colourful, natural backdrops for your portraits.

Spring weddings on the English Wedding Blog. Carol Elizabeth Photography (14)

Weddings in spring always have a feeling of freshness and new beginnings.  The backdrop will usually be spring flowers scattered on the ground, a slight chill in the air, and soft afternoon sunshine.  Suppliers and venues are gearing up for a busy season, and the first few weddings of the year are wrapped up in the excitement and anticipation of so many new opportunities to make a wedding day extra-special.” ~ Carol Elizabeth Photography

I love the sunny glow of this wedding – Emily is too gorgeous for words and the portraits from Northbrook Park are incredible. It’s wonderful to see a low-key wedding too: one where the focus is purely on the romance of the day and the company of close friends and family – and captured so beautifully, Emily and Ash’s wedding is certainly one I’ll remember for a long, long time.

The thing we care about most when photographing a wedding, is of course the couple. We massively support marriage, having got married ourselves last year. We also love getting to know people and being able to share their first steps into married life is such a blessing for us. Emily and Ash were so obviously captivated by each other. They are one of those couple that have a tangible energy and connection that’s just SO obvious for everyone that meet them.” ~ The Springles

Cornflower blues, lazy summer days and understated, delicate florals for a beautiful summer wedding… today we’re in for such a lovely treat!

If I can bring a smile to your face this morning I’ll be so happy… and with the amazing wedding I have up my sleeve I’m feeling pretty confident 🙂 Caroline & David’s wedding is wonderful: a riot of colour and fun, and I adore the flowers and how the gorgeous bride and groom styled the venue for their day. There are so many glorious details and I love the portraits of the bride and groom as well, they just look so perfect together!

From the first meeting with Caroline & David I loved their relaxed vibe. At the time of planning their wedding they were moving back from Australia to England, applying for new jobs as well as finding a home, I mean WOW, that’s all kinds of busy but they were chilled and I knew it was going to be an awesome day because of them. This followed through into the engagement shoot as well, it unexpectedly rained quite badly and we were doing piggybacks and all sorts during it, they didn’t care, that’s my kind of couple!” ~ Lissa Alexandra

Sometimes you’ve just gotta go unashamedly pink. Girly, super pretty and all-out glamorous makes for one hell of a blog feature, and Lucinda and Alex’s wedding is all of the above and more. Theirs is a wonderfully glamorous wedding and I love the pinks and details – and the blossom is fabulous! Springtime is well and truly here today!

Lucinda’s top advice for other couples is fab: “Make sure you enjoy your whole day and take a minute every now and then to sit back and look at how much everyone is enjoying themselves, try and take mental images! And failing that, make sure you get a fantastic photographer to capture those moments for you, it’s worth it!”

Words aren’t really enough sometimes… today’s wedding is more beautiful than any dictionary could ever define: a glorious celebration in fabulous style. Bryony and Richard were married at Hassop Hall in the autumn, and their day is breathtaking.

A good looking, fun couple, Bryony and Richard were great to work with.

My family is from Derbyshire and so I know the wonderful contours of the Peak District rather well… and it’s one of the loveliest parts of England to be married: the mountains and moorlands are an incredible place to explore. Bryony and Richard were married at Hathersage Church and held their reception at Hassop Hall – one of my favourite Derbyshire wedding venues.Claire
