A friend of mine asked me last weekend which was the best wedding I’d seen recently, and I forgot to tell her about this one. For me personally, this is pretty unbeatable and it’s all down to the location chosen by beautiful bride Emma and her husband Tom. They married on the spectacular Isle of Skye and really made the most of their surroundings with their wedding photography.

Isle of Skye wedding by Love Skye (1)

What struck me when I first saw this wedding is Emma’s bridal look: she wears her hair up for the ceremony and looks fabulous, but standing looking out across the Isle of Skye for the portrait photos later with her hair loose she is one of the most beautiful brides I’ve ever seen. Her secret? Keeping it real – falling in love with the landscape, choosing a location which literally means the world to her and Tom, and being herself.

Sophie and Chris’s wedding has the lightness, prettiness and creative flair I love. It’s gorgeous and charming with an English country flavour… think buttercup fields and Mary Berry, jam and cakes, cottage garden flowers and laughter in the May sunshine and you’re halfway there.

English country wedding blog Eddie Judd (1)

I hope you’ll enjoy this beautiful wedding on the blog today – even more, I hope you’ll take some ideas from it to style your own day. The flowers really make it for me: you can’t go wrong with peonies, and the hydrangeas are spectacular too. Bride Sophie is stunning and the images are wonderful.

I think Diana and John are amazing and I can’t think of a better way to end the week than with this brilliant wedding. If you don’t smile along with John in the next few minutes then your heart is made out of bricks and you’re on the wrong wedding blog. (Oh but I know you’ll smile because this is the best feel-good wedding, I promise you’ll love it!)

Diana is gorgeous and wears the cutest Candy Anthony wedding dress. John is an absolute star who wears his heart on his sleeve and has the best, biggest, most adorable smile ever! Together they make a standout couple and I just love the whole spirit of their wedding day. You will too.

Oh dear!!! There are so many gorgeous things to show you in today’s real English wedding I think I might break my own blog. Oops! But Becky and Greg had the loveliest day with such wonderful personal touches I just have to show you everything! From the polka dot table plan to the quirky ice cream seller, the chalkboard sign, Becky’s own designer wedding cake, the union jack details and luscious hydrangeas everywhere… I can almost smell the summer breeze!

English barn wedding Sophie Duckworth Photographer (16)

Becky looks stunning in her Sassi Holford wedding dress, which she bought second-hand. She told me the dress was advertised online, “and I just fell in love with it instantly.  It would be a shame for such a beautiful dress to only be worn once and I am so glad that the dress could continue its journey.” What a great way to find a wedding dress! And what an awesome bride – Becky, you rock!

I love Paul and Jacky’s personalities – their wedding just looks full of love and laughter, and I adore Jacky’s confidence and her fantastic flower crown! If you’re wondering whether the ‘flowers in her hair’ look is for you, or maybe a bit shy of wearing a flower crown… just look at this. Jacky will persuade you to go for it and love wearing one!!!

I always try and see the bright side of winter, don’t you? Early morning frost and winter sunshine, the promise of snow and snuggling up by a cosy fire… because winter can be the most romantic time of the year. I love it. So do Paula and Stephen, today’s gorgeous bride and groom on the English Wedding Blog. They created a winter wonderland wedding full of festive sparkle.

A delicate selection of sandwiches and cakes, jugs of Pimm’s and vintage china teacups brought Jennifer and Andrew’s English tea party wedding to life. There are so many beautiful photos here to inspire you to create a similar theme for your wedding day. With a stunning bride and oodles of wonderful images, this is a treat to brighten all of our Fridays!

Jennifer wears a gorgeous lace wedding dress by Mia Sposa; Andrew looks great in a tailored suit by Owen Scott. Their vintage theme happened almost by accident: looking to create a very personal wedding that reflected their personalities, the English tea party wedding kind of all came together on its own! And it looks amazing!

Today’s real bride Melanie has one of those smiles which light up a room – she’s such a stunning bride and the images from her Norfolk wedding to James are wonderful.

Norfolk wedding photography by Rob Dodsworth (1)

I adore a seaside wedding – Melanie’s top tip for other couples is to “Enjoy every second – it’s over in a flash!  Do something special away from the crowd – Rob, our photographer, took Jim and I down to the beach and it was lovely to have some alone time with Jim!  I really remember that being special.” It most certainly looks like a magical and romantic moment when you see the images!

With thanks to today’s gorgeous real bride and groom Melanie and James.

There’s nothing worse than being told what you “should” have for your wedding, is there? Saul and Michelle’s Northamptonshire wedding is creative, simple and looks every bit the occasion to remember forever. With images by Jules Fortune Photography and two fab venues: Boughton House and The Marquess of Exeter.

Northamptonshire wedding Boughton House Jules Fortune (32)

Savvy brides and grooms are planning ever more personal celebrations with a focus on the special touches they love best. That’s what Michelle and Saul did, choosing to ditch the seating plan for informal dining. They chose two fabulous venues which didn’t need extra decoration, and included family in creating a wonderful day: Michelle’s cousin played guitar, their sisters did wedding readings, and family members contributed gorgeous little treats for an oh-so-yummy-looking dessert table. Overall – an amazing, very personal, family-oriented wedding day. I love it.
