What an incredible venue choice for today’s real wedding feature – Harrogate’s Sun Pavilion – a restored historic venue reflective of the Art Deco period – perfect for a modern wedding. The glittering Sun Pavilion provides the most amazing backdrop for the gorgeous wedding of Imogen and Liam.

Wedding photographers Chris and Verity (Sansom Photography) said, “It was great to finally get the chance to shoot in the Sun Pavilion and the spectacular glass ceiling didn’t disappoint. The pavilion decking provided much needed shade and a great area for the drinks reception.”

Despite a toppling Eiffel Tower wedding cake and with very little extra venue decoration needed, Imogen and Liam created an elegant wedding with a Parisian theme in navy blue. I think it’s wonderful and I’m proud to share their day with you on the English Wedding Blog.

Somehow I missed one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen all year – I can only apologise to you, my wonderful blog readers, for not sharing this one sooner! Jacqui and Andy are the best. Their wedding is captivating, the images out of this world, the laughter and atmosphere infectious.

Colourful summer wedding by Joseph Hall Photography (4)

This gorgeous couple married at Winkworth Farm in Wiltshire and styled their day with colourful flowers (eagle-eyed blog fans will notice I love these very, very much indeed!) and fabulous details. Jacqui is a stunning brunette with the most gorgeous eyes and as a couple these two are just made for each other.

I fell in love with Danielle and Phung’s Notley Abbey wedding as soon as I saw the images: their vibrant colours and beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony stole my heart. This was an international celebration with family travelling from all over the world. Danielle bought her stunning dress in New York, the table plan was a world map (it’s fab!) and there was a tea ceremony as well as the outdoor wedding and reception.

I adore Notley Abbey for its grounds and grandeur: truly a favourite English wedding venue. Danielle told me, “The setting was amazing, but the small touches such as the flowers, family pictures, and wooden signs added our personal touch.”

I love these two. Helen and Dan – a bride and groom so gorgeous and full of personality you’ll wish you’d been there on the day. Their wedding had lots of lovely yellow details: a rose bouquet in two shades; beautiful bridesmaid dresses and a fabulous cake. Bailbrook House is magnificent: a Grade II* listed country house hotel located just a few minutes from the centre of historic Bath.

Helen is such a stunning bride, wearing a pearl- and sparkle-embellished dress with the loveliest waistband. Her hair piece is divine; her glasses stylish and sassy. Dan wears a great tweed suit – as their wedding photographer (the lovely Simon Biffen) says: “Dan cut a fine figure in one of the sharpest tweed suits I’ve ever seen.”

All images are by lovely Simon Biffen Photography. Simon is a UK wedding photographer, based in Somerset and happy to travel throughout the UK to photograph weddings. Wherever you are, do check him out… I think he’s fabulous!

It’s been a little while since I featured a castle wedding, and I’d almost forgotten how spectacular they can be! Today – a reminder via one of the best: this is Angela and Shawn’s Lulworth Castle wedding. You will be blown away – it’s incredible.

Lulworth Castle wedding blog (19)

The castle dates back to the 17th century and is fiercely proud of its history – the knight who features throughout today’s blog post will attest to that! (He’s the one with the Mr & Mrs sign between his teeth…) Angela decorated the reception room with hundreds of candles in jam jars and the effect is beautiful.

Thanks to lovely creative wedding photographer Paul Underhill for sharing his images of such a gorgeous castle wedding with us today.

There are so many wonderful details: the flowers are a highlight, and are by the fabulous Susie at Hart Company. Gemma is stunning in a Lusan Mandongus gown, and Niall looks amazing in a Saville Row bespoke suit.

Theatre venues are special: the atmosphere is already awesome but once your guests are seated there’s such a buzz of anticipation… I absolutely love them to bits! Hannah and Rik set the scene for their day (apologies for the stage pun!) with brilliant big letters and made their wedding exciting, theatrical and generally amazing from beginning to end.

When Alexandra met Lewis she was dressed as a devil. He was wearing “a 12 year old’s skeleton suit”… and they fell in love! They were married in June and their wedding is one of the loveliest classic English weddings I’ve seen. Alexandra looks divine in a Sassi Holford gown while Lewis is fabulous in a Reiss suit. Their theme was vintage travel, styled around a red post box which I love.

With stationery by Lucy Says I Do and fabulous flowers by Caroline Hodges, the styling of this lovely Devon wedding is classy and colourful. I love all the little details – and the portraits of gorgeous Alexandra and Lewis are just so romantic!
