Tom and Jess’s wedding is beautiful, with mismatched pastel colours for the bouquets and bridesmaids… the details are gorgeous; the bride absolutely stunning. Jess and Tom make the loveliest couple: today’s bride wears a delicate lace dress while her groom is in navy blue – a nice touch for a pretty, elegant, and fun wedding.

The venue is Chesterfield’s Ringwood Hall, and all images are by the lovely Jon Cripwell Photography. Jon describes Tom and Jess as “an absolutely fantastic match for each other“, and says, “The ceremony was beautiful, and obviously emotional for everyone involved, but especially the bride! Jess valiantly made it through her vows, and it was touching to see Tom reassuring her and helping her through when the happy tears began to fall.

Hello lovely wedding blog readers! I have a bonus post for you this afternoon with some fabulous images by the lovely Simon Biffen Photography. Lucy and Rob were married at Maunsel House in Somerset, with a ceremony in the grand ballroom and later (after the rain stopped!) a stroll around the glorious grounds.

Today’s real wedding features a stunning short-haired brunette, the lovely Charlie, who wears a bird cage veil and Paloma Blanca wedding dress. The stationery is all home made, and yet this wedding at Shrigley Hall in Cheshire looks wonderfully elegant and stylish – you will LOVE it!!

When Charlie first got in touch with me I was so excited – her photos are just stunning, as is she – and just as excitingly her wedding photographer is the lovely Jonny Draper. I’ve featured Jonny’s work on the English Wedding Blog lots of times (more here: http://english-wedding.com/tag/jonny-draper-photography), and I have the biggest admiration for how he works: Jonny’s built his wedding photography business on friendship. Seriously – if you’re getting married in the north west then you need to meet with Jonny for a chat and you’ll see what I mean! Charlie and Dan describe him as ‘incredible‘ – what more do you need to know?!

Hello! Did anyone see June coming?! No? Me neither… I’m still on May! But it’s officially summer and wedding season is in full swing – so let’s begin the week with one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen: Roseanne and Darren at Cripps Barn.

The gorgeous couple didn’t focus on a colour scheme but as their plans developed they chose details in soft blues and greens. The wedding stands out for the spectacular floral decorations – Roseanne’s bouquet is amazing and the ceremony flowers are fabulous.

I’ll never tire of the pretty sparkle of fairy lights – I’ve had mine up at English Wedding Blog HQ since Christmas and yes, I turn them on all the time! Vicky and Gavin decorated Trevor Barn with bunting and fairy lights for their vintage inspired wedding and when I saw the pictures I fell in love. Life should be this pretty all the time!

bunting fairy lights wedding blog (1)Lovely Jade Osborne Photography sent me her images of their day, from the bridal preparations to the groom’s delight (see the photos!) as he saw the yellow Robin Reliant arrive to take him to the wedding… and then on to the reception.

bunting fairy lights wedding blog (2)

I’ve included more images of the ceremony than usual, simply because there’s such a charming sequence of images as Vicky arrives and Gavin’s nerves – and tears – being to show! I love the moment where he sees his beautiful bride and smiles: it’s always wonderful and to me this moment says, “so long as you’re by my side everything will be ok”.

The jury is out as to whether today’s wedding is more of an “Ewok party” or a “secret wedding in the woods” – and our beautiful bride and gorgeous groom can’t decide! What’s for sure is that this is one of the best weddings I’ve seen – and it really fits both descriptions beautifully. Weddings should be a magical adventure in every way, and Louise and Toby made theirs so much more than that – it’s just brilliant!

secret wedding in the woods (1)

Their wedding photographer is the very lovely Clare West, a documentary photographer based in Reading. She comes very highly recommended by today’s star bride and groom, and I love that she captures the details of the day so beautifully. Louise told me, “Clare took time to capture a lot of the little details and delicate touches that we had spent so long working on.” For me that’s really important! Details and special touches are the frame around the essence of your wedding: just as you’d place a cherished photo in a special frame, if you wrap your wedding in prettiness then you want to have detail photographs in your album to recreate the atmosphere of your day around those magical moments, right?

Morning everyone! I feel like sunshine today… and especially for my fellow soggy northerners this week I bring you all the sunshine you could need in the form of Nathalie’s lush sunflowers! Yay! Beautiful Nathalie and Daniel were married at the fabulous Folly Farm near Bristol and chose lovely Joseph Hall as their wedding photographer.

Folly Farm sunflower wedding (1)

The sunflower inspired colours and rustic country style of their venue are a perfect match, and despite the rain (which kind of makes the day look even more charmingly English in the gorgeous photos!) their day is wonderfully inspiring. It’s a wedding both elegant and in tune with nature, with summery bouquets and a rich green and yellow colour palette. Bridesmaids are in lush green and Daniel and his best boys sport the cutest yellow buttonholes to match the flower in Nathalie’s hair. The flowers and venue really make this Somerset wedding very special indeed!

Hello, and happy Wednesday to you! I have a beautifully elegant English wedding to share with you today – Annabelle and James were married at St Joseph’s church in Blundellsands and chose Thornton Manor for their wedding reception. They’d travelled from London for their wedding in the north west, which kind of proves how desirable Thornton Manor is as a top class wedding venue! Worth a journey… and then some! Their day is elegantly styled with just a few, but such beautiful details and special touches: a white bouquet, pale gold bridesmaids’ dresses and ties. You really don’t need more than this for such a stunning venue!

It doesn’t usually take me this long to sort through the images I’m sent for a wedding blog feature, but photographer David Stubbs sent me so many gorgeous images I was truly spoilt for choice! I know you’ll love Louise and Christopher’s wedding – they have individuality and style; they’ve created a wedding day full of ideas and which looks as amazing in the images as it must have been to be there on the day!

David Stubbs Photography wedding blog

Louise is a stunning bride in her Enzoani dress and Christopher looks fab in his Next jacket and trousers – loving those polka dots and the shades! The VW camper van is a star; there’s a gorgeous little flower girl who almost steals the show and of course (as Louise puts it!) – a bucking bronco! I’ve been kind and only included the picture of Christopher as he’s doing well on the back of it… hehe!

Amy and Damian’s rustic spring wedding blog is just beautiful – the freesias in Amy’s bouquet are my favourite flowers (my Grandma used to love them and they remind me of her). Today’s bride and groom are both gorgeous, their day just makes me smile and I adore their images.

wedding blog James Grist Photography

Amy dedicated herself to making all of the stationery, invitations and even wooden place names with a personal message to every guest on the back. Family and friends helped out, with even Granddad making wooden birds for the cake stand!

Amy’s dress is divine, by the wonderful Melanie Potro. She looks so incredibly beautiful and wears her Nan’s pearls with diamond earrings given to her by Damian. Amy’s sister is a hair and make up artist so of course she styled Amy’s bridal look – and she looks absolutely stunning.  The images are by lovely James Grist Photography, based in Kent.

Hello everyone! I promised you a real wedding yesterday and I’m so pleased it’s this one… gorgeous Natasha and Amit were married at Longleat in Wiltshire in September. Their ceremony was in the stunning orangery at Longleat – a beautiful setting with murals and wonderful light for the romantic occasion.

They opted for a vintage world travel theme with table names and accessories, and Natasha’s bridesmaids wore accents of teal while the bride carried a bouquet of hot pink gerberas. All in all it’s a beautiful wedding with plenty of ideas and one I’ve been excited to show you!

Morning! Today’s wedding is a little special – it’s not the first time gorgeous bride Sarah has featured on a wedding blog… in fact she’s been on the English Wedding Blog very recently! As a wedding photographer Sarah sees so many weddings – and like many in the wedding industry she chose to do things differently. Her dress was made for her, and inspired by a genuine vintage dress she’d found on Pinterest. Stuart wore jeans, which I think is the best thing ever (Sarah adds that they had to be nice jeans!) and their florist Sarah Jones came up with the vintage medical theme incorporating lots of wonderful little glass bottles with flowers!

There’s so much to this wedding that makes me smile: the gorgeous images and Sarah’s beautiful smile – the portrait photos of today’s lovely couple are just wonderful. Then there’s the vintage medical theme, which is genius! Stuart and Sarah had vintage medical equipment (yes!), those lovely bottles and also lots of books… and who wouldn’t enjoy sitting down at a wedding reception and dipping into 1950s books about anatomy for nurses?! Brilliant!
