There’s a little clue in the title of today’s wedding blog for you. This is a very bright wedding, an absolutely fantastic theme and a blog post to make you grin from ear to ear in delight.

Emily and Alan are a great couple – full of fun and creativity. And while Emily is stunning in her Jasmine Couture wedding dress, Alan steals the show in a bright. yellow. suit. (There’s a photo to watch out for with a handwritten note from Emily: “I love you even though you look like a bowl of custard”! which is wonderful! Seriously though – he looks great, and everything about today’s wedding blog is brilliant. Literally!

The photos are by Dorset wedding photographer Paul Underhill, who contacted me a few weeks ago and told me that Alan had changed into the canary yellow suit partway through the wedding to surprise all the guests. What a fab idea! The yellow and blue theme continues throughout the day and I love all the details and styling of the marquee as well. The photos look amazing!

If you’re styling a vintage military wedding then I’ve a feeling you’ll love Sara and Dave’s wedding blog. They’re a fantastic couple with a great sense of style, and used lengths of bunting and traditional decorations to theme their gorgeous wedding.

vintage wedding (1)Not only are there loads of ideas for you from Sara & Dave’s big day, I’ve created a vintage military wedding Pinterest board with more ideas to share with you – so if you’re planning a similar style for your day, do have a look!

Congratulations to Sara and Dave, and my huge thanks to Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography for sharing the wedding photos on English Wedding Blog for us all to enjoy this morning.

Have a lovely day everyone! Claire xxx

Ideas for styling your own vintage wedding with a military influence

  • Begin with the colours of your military uniform as a base for your venue styling
  • Use old maps for table plans and table numbers

Everyone has a strong idea about how a wedding should be: lavish and extravagant is fine if you have the money and it suits your lifestyle. But personally, for me, nothing is more romantic than an intimate wedding with a few guests and some little details to make the day your own. Their country wedding just looks perfect to me: warm and cosy, stylish and really personal. And I absolutely love it.

With congratulations to Fi and Tom, and a big thank you for sharing your wedding story with us all on English Wedding Blog today. Thanks also to Northamptonshire wedding photographer Aaron Collett for submitting the wedding for a feature. How could I possibly say no? This is right up my street, and the photos are beautiful. You’ll find the wedding story about halfway down the page. Enjoy! Claire xxx

Hello there! I know you’re going to love Luke and Hannah’s Kent wedding blog. It’s the first wedding I’ve ever featured from the wonderful 14th century manor house Penshurst Place, which is magnificent. Hannah looks incredibly beautiful in a wedding dress by Stephanie Allin, and Luke is every bit the English gent in a long jacket complete with cane.

Kent wedding blog Steve Fuller Photography (1)

There are so many fantastic ideas here to inspire your wedding planning, including sunflower bouquets and table decorations, and – my favourites – the cutest little place name card holders with dinky little sunflowers.

Kent wedding blog Steve Fuller Photography (2)

But the most exciting thing about today’s wedding is Hannah and Luke’s memories of the moment their eyes met as Hannah walked down the aisle:

Hannah: “I will never forget seeing Luke for the first time as I walked down the aisle and the look on his face when he turned around and saw me. I couldn’t stop smiling, nothing has ever felt so right!”

One thing we have here in England is history. While the US wedding blogs are so full of chic and contemporary ideas, fabulous styling and creative ideas, have you ever noticed how many US weddings are outdoors? Today’s Sussex wedding is set in what sounds like a fabulous and very old wedding venue – Pangdean Barn.

The very gorgeous Helen and Pete chose sunflowers to create a wonderfully vibrant and happy summer wedding style. Thanks to Dennison Studios Photography for sharing the photographs of their beautiful wedding with us today. I hope you love it! Claire xxx

I think perhaps I’m becoming known for my love of sunshine! I live at the seaside, and when it’s cold it’s sooooo cold: but when the sun shines it’s incredibly beautiful. And I talk about it a LOT! Somerset wedding photographer Simon Biffen knows exactly how to get my attention: with an offer of a beautifully sunny Sorrento wedding blog feature!

Lucy and Joe were married last summer and invited Simon Biffen to be their wedding photographer. Lucy is English and Joe is American, so they chose a destination wedding in Italy as a way of meeting in the middle!

Their theme included purple details and the wedding day was timeless and simple in style, with the location and love creating all the atmosphere you could dream of!

If Google didn’t tell me I had to start with some words of introduction to my wedding blog posts, I’d launch straight into today’s feature with the beautiful images from Victoria and David’s teepee wedding. There’s so much to show you, and you’ll LOVE this!

Cambridge teepee wedding by Lightworks Photography (1)There is always a certain charm and romance to a wedding in a teepee, especially when you include a stunning bride in a couture wedding dress and details as enchanting as those I’m about to share with you. And wait until you see the cutest flower girl in the world behind the wheel of a vintage wedding car… you’ll just melt!

I’m delighted to share this wedding with you today. If there was a wedding of the week award I’d be rushing to present it to everyone involved in today’s post – so congratulations and the biggest thank you to Victoria and David for sharing their story; and a huge thank you also to Cambridge wedding photographer Andrew from Lightworks Photography for the submission.

Everyone – enjoy! Claire xxx

I’m sat here writing today’s wedding blog with a little tear in my eye. Wedding films move me – they do! The nervous moments as a groom waits for his bride get me every time! And then he reaches towards her and has to wipe away a tear… it’s magical, and so lovely. So – a warning: Davina and Dave will make you cry! Enjoy their Sheffield wedding highlights film by Love Gets Sweeter and read Davina’s beautifully written wedding story below (I laughed out loud at Dave and the dolphin trainer!)

Dave and Davina: a beautiful Sheffield wedding blog

When Dave proposed after 5 years together I knew that we weren’t going to have a long engagement and eagerly got stuck into planning our big day. Although we had no idea where we wanted to get married we knew that it had to be big enough for our family and friends without being cold and uninviting.

Morning everyone, and Happy Friday! I’ve been saving today’s gorgeous Cheshire wedding blog for this morning – it seems to fit with that whole Friday feeling thing. There’s sunshine and romance, and a stunning bride and groom – in fact wedding blog subscribers will recognise Karen and Simon from their wedding highlights film which I was so proud to feature back in January (see an autumn wedding in Cheshire).

I love this quote from the happy couple:

Try to leave yourselves as much time as possible between all the day’s activities to spend with family and friends, after the day those will be the moments you cherish the most.

Cheshire wedding blog Hambleton Photography (2)

Karen wears a fabulous dress by Sassi Holford and the day has a purple theme because it’s the ribbon colour for pancreaticcancer.org.uk – a cause very close to the hearts of the bride and groom. This is all explained in the wedding report which Karen and Simon have shared with us today, and you’ll see some really beautiful images from Cheshire wedding photographer Martin Hambleton – with unexpected and wonderful moments captured as well as some magical portraits. I know you’ll love this! Grab a Crunchie (after all, as Wendy always tells me, we should celebrate Fridays in style!!)

An aisle of sparklers – what a fantastic idea! Today’s wedding blog is another very festive celebration with wonderful creative touches. From the choice in wedding music to the little note about weirdness and love (watch out for the photo!) I absolutely love David & Carol’s wedding!

Sussex wedding blog James Grist (1)

Having read this very gorgeous couple’s wedding report already, I’m smiling at mentions of walking back down the aisle twice (when the CD kicked in late!) and imagining that amazing aisle of sparklers – but what sticks in my mind is this: (from one of the many lovely images by James Grist Photography)

“We are all a little weird, and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours we join up with them, and fall in mutual weirdness, and call it LOVE!”

How fab is that?! Over to the gorgeous bride and groom with their wedding report (which starts about halfway down the page) and with thanks to James Grist for submitting this wonderful wedding blog today. Enjoy! Claire xxx

From police tape around the wedding cake to the softly sparkling lights and Nicola’s stunning vintage lace wedding dress, I adore every detail of this gorgeous Vaulty Manor wedding. If you’re considering or planning a Christmas wedding then you’ll find some gorgeous ideas here with Nicola and Tim’s wedding report and the beautiful images from Tracy Morter Photography to inspire you.

Essex wedding blog Tracy Morter Photography (1)

I love a Christmas wedding – somehow all the love and friendship along with twinkly lights and little red accessories and details turn the coldest time of the year into a warm and welcoming occasion. My parents chose December for their wedding, and I can definitely see why it’s such a popular time of year to get hitched.

Anyway – I know you’ll enjoy today’s real wedding on the blog so grab a cuppa and scroll down to see all the images. Thanks to Nicola and Tim for sharing, and to the very lovely Tracy Morter Photography for submitting another gorgeous wedding to the blog!

A little about the wedding ceremony:

It had rained and rained for months, so the most I was hoping for was for it to be dry, at least for part of the day. Well not only was it dry it was hot! Which, when getting married in the Orangery (think greenhouse) meant the ceremony was very hot!! But I’ll never complain about the weather we got that day.
