I LOVE this wedding – Amy and Dan had the best homemade table plan I’ve ever seen! I adore the idea of a spot of wild swimming (crazy!) and all the flowers, personal touches with stationery… and Amy’s dress is just wonderful. This is beautiful, country charm at its very best and I hope you fall in love with their day as much as I have!

The ideas here will inspire creative brides and grooms – and the beautiful images will make your eyes ever so happy. Amy is a breathtaking bride, Dan her perfect match. Their day is one which speaks to my heart with personal touches, individuality and romance.

Kimberley and Francesco’s wedding is wonderfully sophisticated with an Italian twist. I love it when grooms look a little different, and Francesco’s black suit and dickie bow are just wonderful!

Kimberley is so very beautiful – her lacy dress is gorgeous and the details of the day are really pretty and romantic – the soft pinks of the roses, the prettily styled wedding cake… this all adds up to a classic, feminine English wedding – and it’s lovely.

My wedding flowers were soft whites and pinks, mainly roses – they were arranged by Oops a Daisy in Cirencester. They were great as I wasn’t sure what I wanted but they sat with me and showed me the different flowers we could have and how they looked together.

Annie and Chris had a truly unique wedding – they know some amazing people and through friends they were able to marry at London’s fabulous Lyric Theatre – which gave their wedding so much personality and atmosphere, it’s just fabulous! The flowers are bright and colourful, styling is elegant and theatrical… and today’s bride and groom are as gorgeous as they are lovely. Images are by Sussex photographer Neil Walker.

We used bright spring colours for our flowers – peaches, lilacs, yellows & pinks. James from Detta Phillips is brilliant – they looked spectacular.

Don’t miss Chris and Annie’s wise advice (and genuine supplier recommendations) for you lovely lot, which you’ll find just after the photos if you scroll through the full feature today. “We designed and made our wedding stationery ourselves. It was a really enjoyable experience and we were really proud of our handiwork once they were finished. We made place cards and table plan in the same style as the invitations. Our navy & burgundy spotty theme ran throughout from the save the dates to the orders of ceremony and menus. We also designed print-outs of readings and songs to frame & sign with messages as thank you gifts.

This is what we at English Wedding Blog HQ call a wow wedding. A wow wedding is when we gasp, shout back at our screens and can’t stop grinning. It’s gorgeous – the images, the bride & groom, the bouquet (double wow!) and the styling of the reception… just amazing!

“I work as a designer so I loved creating the details for our special day. My dad built the chalkboards and easels for me which I decorated with the chalk pens by hand. My parents, brother, aunt, uncle and husband patiently assisted me with with the set up the day before – I knew exactly how I wanted to arrange the table wreaths, candles and vintage bottles and they were so kind to put up with me being obsessive over the placement of everything as I could mere have completed it in time myself!”

Today’s is a fabulously fun, colourful and creative wedding on a budget – Charlotte and Gareth were married at Fison Barn and wanted to keep their day informal and pretty without breaking the bank! Their ideas are lovely; Charlotte’s DIY tips and her English Wedding Interview are a great read. I love Charlotte’s honesty too: they tried making invitations but in the end, as it can be so time-consuming to do, they bought their invites online and focused on the craft projects they’d really enjoy. And the ones where Gareth spent a few days covered in glue… oops!

Like with everything in this wedding, our flowers had to be colourful and fun. I used  Richard Mathews, who offered a good deal and were friendly, I gave them sort of free range explaining my theme was colourful and fun.  He asked me to find examples of flowers I liked then he worked out something from those. I was so happy with them as he’d managed to put in fresh sweet pea flowers, a flower I had really wanted.

Today’s real wedding is stunning… I do love a good tree. Gorgeous bride Claire and her husband Miles were married in Henley, with the River Thames as the backdrop for their day. The ceremony venue is pretty, welcoming and light. And they enjoyed a boat trip with a proper English pub in the background – pretty much everything about the wedding is perfect for a blog feature!

The staff were amazing and the beautiful sunny day made it even better, with guests enjoying drinks and canapes on the riverbank by the dock while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive back on the boat.

“The main theme of our wedding was to make it as personalised as possible to us. We love cycling, especially through mountain ranges and a lot of our friends share this with us too. So we had a tandem there and the theme ran through all the stationery too.

Almost every morning you’ll find me on the beach, or in the hills gazing down at the estuary below the village where I live. I have a thing for beach weddings – they’re the most amazing thing ever! I love the portraits of Michael & Sara, especially the black & white images on the sand… they’re gorgeous and this is incredible!

Photographers Emily & Steve told me “The Grand Hotel in Swanage is perched right on a cliff with steps down to the beach! It was stunning and the perfect location for a summer wedding. It was the first wedding we’ve been to where the guests suddenly started to serenade the couple with ‘Love is all around’. They were all swaying their arms and really getting into it! It was so much fun!”

My dress was in the first shop I went to and I hadn’t ever seen a wedding dress similar to it. I liked the front with a bit of sparkle but fell in love with the back with the cowel back, buttons and train. I did go to another shop to have a look but there was nothing anywhere near as beautiful so rushed straight back to Village Brides to buy it.

Gorgeous bride Nazma told me her wedding to David was a multicultural fusion of love, family, friendship & everlasting memories. And you know what? I think this is one of the loveliest days I’ve had the pleasure of featuring on the English Wedding Blog! The colours, elegance and character of the day are stunning – this is a wedding to warm your soul and make you smile out loud. Enjoy – the English Wedding Blog is BEAUTIFUL today!

Fusion wedding at Warwick House Rob & Sarah Gillespie (24)

Warwick House is a dedicated wedding venue. The stunning layout meant that nothing really needs adding other than personal touches. The neutral colours meant that any colour theme can be incorporated at the venue without looking out of place.

We made the stationery ourselves – it was a combination of a labour of love and stress! Making wedding stationery can be a timely and patient process so I’d recommend only doing it if you’ve got the time and help from some crafty minded friends!

If I could take a polaroid of every bouquet we feature on the English Wedding Blog, and paper my little office & studio space with all of them it would just be soooo beautiful. Sometimes a gorgeous wedding inspires you to dream crazy things… but that’s ok, and I know we’re going to inspire you with some lovely ideas today. The flowers are only the beginning of this stunning day…

We wanted a wedding with a hint of vintage and a spring country feel. Most suppliers were recommended by Coombe Trenchard (marquee company, caterers, mobile bar). The band we sourced from Alive Network and Emma @ Freckle Photography was found by some extensive internet searching as photography was extremely important for us to get right!

I love Jo and Ed’s wedding for its elegant, relaxed styling and the timelessly beautiful images – they married in late spring and chose seasonal flowers alongside the loveliest little touches to flavour their day. The ceremony at Doddington Hall is incredible: the reception full of country charm. I love their homemade honey favours (their own bees… how lovely is that?!) and the pretty florals used throughout the day. Claire

“We hired the ‘Long Gallery’ at Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire, a beautiful room with huge paintings and a grand piano. It needed little decoration as its splendour spoke for itself. The room held 200 guests and created a long isle. We had a drinks reception in the coach house next to the main hall with an acoustic band within the walled gardens. Our reception was held at the family ostrich farm in Nottinghamshire, 20 minutes from Doddington Hall.

Anna & Stuart’s Norwich wedding is full of smiles, and fun, and the most amazing atmosphere – the styling of the day is wonderful (I do love kilts!) and I adore the table plan and overall look of the day.

Anna & Stuart are very calm people and always put concerns for other people, namely their guests as well as myself, at the forefront of their minds.

I think the fact that they had an ice cream cart waiting outside the church, so that guests could get refreshments whilst they waited for the group pics, and after having sat through the ceremony, spoke buckets. It meant that there weren’t any groups of people standing around wondering what they do next, before the reception started.

I have been so excited to show you Lydia and Rob’s wedding – there are some amazing ideas and beautiful images, and I love the venue with the lights strung across the ceiling, their portraits are fab, and there’s a gorgeous night time image of the two of them. The bouquet is pretty as well, with lovely shades of white and yellow for a fresh spring bouquet – fabulous.

So many things made this wedding special and memorable. The main thing was that even though the weather was pretty awful, nothing was going to stop them enjoying their day and having their photographs in the gardens and grounds. They’re such a funny couple and took everything in their stride. The planning had been easy and they were very chilled out about everything leading up to and on the day.
