Today’s wedding has the most beautiful golden hour pics – and a gorgeous bride and groom whose focus is on family and celebration. This is how a wedding should be – full of love, and as creative as you’d like your day to look!! The photos by Grace Elizabeth are just fabulous and really capture the love between these two! “Grace completely understood the vibe we were going for. From booking to receiving our photos, everything was effortless. She’s certainly extremely popular with our friends and family!”

Our ceremony was at Colchester Castle. It was a beautiful day and I don’t think I’ve ever seen the town so busy. A superhero invasion and a historical re-enactment really added to the magic of the day. We even had cannons going off during our vows. I had little girls waving at me and calling me a princess – it was surreal but amazing!

Colour makes me happy – and colourful, cheerful, vibrant weddings make me the happiest wedding blogger in the world! Today we’re sharing Charlie and Harry’s wedding at Eversholt Hall. Their day had a boho feel to it, with gorgeous bride Charlie in a flower crown of pink and ivory blooms with berries, and Harry looking relaxed and summery in a smart blue suit with white tie (a look I’m kind of loving right now!). Pics are by lovely Buckinghamshire wedding photographer Katrina Matthews, who’s very kindly introduced the wedding for us today!

Harry and Charlie got married on the 28th of July this year in Eversholt Hall, a lovely village hall sat on a little hill overlooking the village green.

They planned a DIY wedding, getting lots of family and friends involved. They had family perform with their band out on the green, friends make their wedding cake and the mother of the groom created the beautiful flower bouquets.

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m sharing a lovely wedding with an important message from beautiful bride Danelle. This gorgeous couple married at Helmingham Hall Gardens at the beginning of autumn, and their day is everything they could have dreamed of: with pretty and romantic styling touches, a stunning dress, pretty bridesmaids and a venue to die for! The pictures by our lovely friend and English Wedding member Ayshea Goldberg capture the key moments and details beautifully – and I love how blissfully happy these two look when they’re together!

Something I rarely hear about – and I actually wish we were able to talk about this more on wedding blogs – is anxiety. The build up to a wedding is huge, and Danelle has very bravely shared her experience of feeling overwhelmed with anxiety on the big day. I’m sure she’s not alone in feeling this way, and I would urge you to look for help if your own feelings of anxiety are clouding your wedding journey. There’s a lovely article on Ayshea Goldberg’s blog about dealing with anxiety on your wedding day. Danelle – you are beautiful and brave, and we’re so grateful to you for sharing your gorgeous day on English Wedding today!

The most unusual wedding venue in the UK? A gorgeous real wedding with images by Jon Turtle on English-Wedding.com (19)

Winter is coming… and that phrase conjures up two things for me! The first is Game of Thrones – and me and my guy are rewatching every. single. episode. from the 1st season to the last… we started on Friday and I think we’ll be finished just in time for season 8 in May / June 2019! Winter also reminds me of snowy weddings, snuggly wraps and cosily beautiful wedding styling. So today I’m sharing a truly unique wedding from Lansdown Hall and Gallery in Stroud. Beautiful bride Jess and gorgeous groom Damian chose the venue because it’s very dear to their family, and organised everything themselves: decorations, lighting, DJ, the bar, outside catering, staff, setting up and clearing up. Take one look at their photos and you’ll see it was 100% worthwhile – it allowed them to plan and style their day exactly how they wanted. As well as the venue, highlights to watch out for are Jess’s E&W Couture dress, which is just perfect – and the bouquet of eucalyptus, white roses and pussy willow (my favourite!) by the wonderful Sweet Peony in Cardiff. The fabulous photos of Jess and Damian’s wedding are by UK photographer Jon Turtle, who’s based in Penarth, South Wales.

Hey lovelies! How was your weekend? I’m fairly sure I still have white paint all over my hair and face but hey – we had a successful decorating session! So back to it and this week we have some blindingly beautiful weddings and ideas to share with you on English Wedding. Kicking off the week are gorgeous newlyweds Beth and Carl, who celebrated their marriage at The Old Hall in Frodsham. This is so beautiful… and the FLOWERS!

“Our wedding flowers were even more than what I was expecting, our florist Jenny from Jenny Penny Flowers in Frodsham completely went above and beyond in providing everything which I had envisaged. Jenny understood what I was asking for and provided us with more, we had so many compliments on the flowers and the table decorations. The flowers were an important factor on our day as they set the tone for our botanical feel and I could not have chosen someone better than Jenny to trust to do this, they were absolutely perfect.

Happy Friday folks! What are your plans for the weekend? We’ll be relaxing after a tough week of man flu, I think!! But let’s hark back to the summer months, shall we? Beautiful Leila & her gorgeous groom Mike had a laid back outdoor wedding in June at the very lovely Shortmead House in Biggleswade, which is set in the Bedfordshire countryside. It had a very English country garden feel, which photographer Lorna Newman has captured beautifully for us. I hope you love this stunning summer wedding as much as I do!

All images are by lovely Lorna Newman, whose style is wonderfully fun and creative – her romantic shots throughout the day from morning through to sunrise are just divine. The wedding was non-traditional, very beautiful and relaxed, it was just perfect. 

“I had always loved Grace Loves Lace dresses but never thought I would have had the chance to try one let along buy one! They opened a showroom in London and it went from there…

Happy Monday lovelies! How cold has it been this weekend though?! Even today I’m in my snuggliest jumper and slipper boots (the joy of working from home!) – but as ever, the beauty of a wedding blog is that we can take you back to warm summer days! And I have a beauty of a farm wedding for you today, with a (genius or what?!) chicken and egg theme. The cake is one of my fave details – and our beautiful bride and groom are here to tell you all about their day.

“We used our agricultural barn and the Mother of the bride and her friends used flowers and foliage from their gardens, fairy lights and our handmade bunting to transform the barn. Guests were seated on hay bales with handmade cushions which I made with my cousin and Great grandmothers quilted throws.

Do you celebrate Halloween? Here at English Wedding HQ I love the old belief in fairies and spirits – it’s said they can reach us more easily tonight than at any other time in the year… so I see it as a time to pray for loved ones lost; to celebrate their lives and look back on precious times and memories shared. It’s also a lovely opportunity to cook pumpkin stuff – I actually spent a few happy moments writing on a little pumpkin in my calligraphy class the other week! Anyway – before I begin today’s blog post I have a request for wedding stylists and photographers – I would love to feature this year’s Halloween weddings on the blog this time next year. If you’re styling or shooting a wedding today, please consider submitting it for publication on English Wedding next year. We don’t need ghosts and goths (although, that would be pretty awesome!) – I’m looking for weddings with orange, autumnal or pumpkin styling ideas to inspire our readers. Thank you!

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Becky and Liam described their big day as like a big, summer children’s birthday party, with cricket! They included all the best things about summer: the outdoors, sunshine, cricket, Pimms, barbecued food, ice cream, children running around in the grass… and you know what? When a wedding is all about family and children it becomes SO much FUN!

“The Venue – Monks Withecombe in Devon – is owned by Nicky and Simon who are just wonderful people, so welcoming. Tea and coffee were flowing and we were made so welcome. The venue is formed of an art gallery (ceremony room), and a corn barn for the reception. A floral feast of a courtyard surrounded by formal gardens, a spectacular orchard and a glorious field over looking the vast stretch that is Dartmoor. More than that, the special things that caught my eye were the rickety old door, the hand picked sweet peas from the garden and the dry petal confetti.

Soooo….. who’s planning to arrive at their wedding venue in a helicopter then? Nope? Hadn’t crossed your mind? It wouldn’t have been on my list either until today’s rather exciting Cotswolds wedding landed on my screen. But oh – what an adventure, and what memories to have from your wedding day!! Laura and Matt really did create an exceptional wedding, with vibrant florals and a stunning colour palette. The helicopter ride makes their day really unique!! Lucky for us, our friend Martin Dabek Photography went along for the ride and captured every thrilling moment up in the skies with the bride and her dad on their way to the church!

Martin came highly recommend by our friend group… 5 friends had Martin as their photographer at their weddings so he was tried and tested!!

We couldn’t have been happier with Martin. Martin is very personable, professional and relaxed making the experience as easy as possible on the day.
