I’d be so excited if I received an invitation to a wedding at a venue called Finchcocks Musical Museum, wouldn’t you?! And what a stunning place it is – a fabulous choice for Gemma and Gordon’s beautiful wedding. Home to historical pianos, organs and music boxes(!) it’s a fascinating location and has beautiful gardens for wedding photos – and Gemma and Gordon made the most of these!

Helen and Andy’s Gloucestershire wedding is everything a country fete should be: warm and welcoming, full of flowers and pretty decor, and created with the help of friends and family – with details and gifts including flowers grown from seed by a kind neighbour, a wedding cake made by a friend of the bride’s Mum and some fabulous hand painted wedding signs.

The venue is one of the stars of this outdoor wedding and from Helen’s wedding report I gather the venue owners were true stars, helping to create the perfect day. I loved hearing how Helen had been on a screen printing course and designed all of the wedding invitations – isn’t that fabulous?

There’s nothing I love more than an intimate wedding: with only closest friends and family for the ceremony, Emma and Jeremy created the loveliest wedding day at the fabulous Ox Pasture Hall in Yorkshire. Their style: Alice in Wonderland and specifically the Mad Hatter’s tea party.

With lots of wonderful handmade details – the button bouquet and buttonholes being a real highlight for me – this is a charming and enchanting wedding. Huge thanks to a gorgeous bride and groom, for sharing their day and all the fantastic advice in the wedding report. Thanks also to lovely Neil Jackson Photographic for his lovely images of the wedding day:

It’s the first time I’ve blogged a wedding with a pet hedgehog called Derek – who inspired much of the theme for Liz and Paul’s countryside wedding at Surrey’s Coltsford Mill. They had little hedgehog stamps on their stationery, and even adorable little hedgehog cake toppers… who I’m calling Derek and Mrs Derek!

Coltsford Mill wedding blog (27)

Bride Liz looks amazing in a Lusan Mandongus designer wedding dress, with exquisite lace detailing and the most beautiful back and train – she’s simply stunning isn’t she? Paul is her perfect match, and I’m so proud to feature such a lovely couple on the English Wedding Blog today.

There are a few places in this beautiful land of ours which inspire fierce loyalty and pride: Yorkshire is most certainly near the top of that list. The white rose, rolling hillsides and charming towns and people make Yorkshire a perfect place to live, and to love… and today’s bride and groom chose Yorkshire as their wedding theme, location and flavour!

Yorkshire themed wedding blog (19)

Bren and Nikki married at the fabulous Ox Pasture Hall, and chose lovely Georgina Harrison Photography to capture their day. With bunting, pom poms, a vintage typewriter, jam jars with candles, mini chalk boards with easels for the name cards, a suitcase for collecting cards and their awesome ‘LOVE’ light, this is a wedding full of ideas which I know you’ll love!

The neckline of Alicia’s wedding dress is just wonderful: on such a graceful and glamorous bride, this dress couldn’t be more perfect… and so sets the scene for today’s beautiful wedding blog. Alicia and Seb were married at Knowlton Court in Kent, celebrating their day with friends and family in the summer sunshine.

Hey there everyone! Did anyone else forget it was a Bank Holiday and get up early for work? Oops… but never mind, because I have the loveliest of weddings to share with you today, courtesy of Newlywed Films. Danielle and Steve were married at Hedsor House early this summer, and their wedding is fabulous. They planned their day to run smoothly and selected some of the prettiest details: a stunning dress, a fabulous designer tiered cake with roses and beautifully constructed rose boquets… you’ll adore this.

Danielle & Steve from Newlywed Films / Jam Media Co on Vimeo.

Their cake is a real stunner: its elegant tiers with pale roses look exquisite. In the church, pew ends are decorated with bunches of baby’s breath: one of the prettiest trends for 2014. Danielle and Steve had banqueting tables for their wedding breakfast, with pretty floral table decorations, in a beautifully tranquil room at Hedsor House which breaks none of my rules about carpets or chair covers! The white hydrangea floral displays for the top table are divine!

Hey lovely! Happy Friday… and before we begin, lots of love to two of my brides: lovely Sophie whose mirror calligraphy was my project of the week, and lovely Ruth who asked me for a marriage certificate and then place name cards in calligraphy. Girls, I hope you get the gorgeous sunshine you’re hoping for! This morning though, let’s admire Nicole and Glen’s vintage wedding from Nettlestead Place in Kent.

Kent wedding blog (24)www.duntonsphotography.co.uk

With two wonderful historical venues, today’s gorgeous couple simply couldn’t resist a vintage theme. Nettlestead Place was perfect for their ceremony, and The Plough at Leigh was beautifully decorated for a welcoming and pretty reception. The flowers are everywhere, and really make the most of a lovely room. Nicole’s hair with little flowers is just fabulous, and she’s a picture perfect bride. Glen is her perfect match, and together they created a charming reception which I’ve been so excited to show you.

The best wedding photographer’s websites make me want to be there. Now. It takes seconds for me to flip into ‘I wish I was on the south coast’ when I see the glorious sunshine on wedding photographer Simon Biffen‘s blog – so I’d love to share something with you this morning and see if you can imagine you’re right there with me! This is Liz and Ted’s quintessentially English wedding, with images by Simon Biffen Photography. You’ll love it… so, so beautiful:

There are too many things I love best about today’s gorgeous couple Samantha and Lee: the fact they found out the day before the wedding that Samantha was pregnant (wow!); their budget advice to simply “blow it!” and the beautiful, enchanting images of their day by my friend Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography.

The venue is wonderful (and not far from English Wedding Blog Towers!) with views over Lake Windermere; a little boy almost steals the show with his hobby horse (adorable!) and the entertainers clearly had everyone enthralled.

With some of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen this summer appearing in rapid succession on his fabulous blog, Somerset wedding photographer Simon Biffen is setting an amazing standard for wedding photography. Today, a sneak peek from Tors and Mike’s beautiful wedding at home on the farm…

Somerset wedding photography (4) Simon loved photographing this Somerset wedding with “the incredible Tors and Mike. A beautiful couple whose family farm hosted the celebrations in Somerset. Farm weddings are always a blast, maybe it’s the fresh air that gets everyone in the mood, that or perhaps it’s the barrels of cider and ale on tap! Either way these two were amazing.”

Transforming a simple village or church hall into a festive and pretty party venue takes ambition, style and vision! Emma and Matthew, along with a small army of family and friends, did a lovely job and their spring wedding at All Saints Church in Crowborough, East Sussex looks wonderful.

Bride Emma is ever so beautiful – her portraits by wedding photographer Steven Dungate, of Duntons Photography, are gorgeous. She positively glows when joined by her new husband Matthew: a radiant couple so clearly full of love.

The images are fabulous; the wedding report by Emma and Matthew is brilliant, and full of advice to help you design and style a church hall wedding. Here is a couple after my own heart: they kept their wedding budget to a minimum (including a dress for less than £100) and indulged in excellent catering and an amazing party!
