Amy and Paul were lucky enough to be married in an English vineyard – it was a gorgeous summer day and the vineyard was the perfect outdoor setting for such a relaxed and informal celebration. Everything was very simply styled but the simplicity made everything look all the more elegant, don’t you think? West Street Vineyard is in the Essex countryside in Coggeshall with ceremonies literally amongst the vines. The sunset was incredible for our beautiful bride and groom, so do make sure you scroll all the way down to see every last gorgeous shot of their day!

The other weekend I bought sunflower seed packets… lots of them. I know it’s early, but I’m excited for summer! And I don’t think you can ever really have too many sunflowers, right? I’m fairly sure today’s beautiful bride Kayleigh and handsome husband Scott would agree. Their wedding is vibrant and summery, wonderfully creative and gorgeous in every possible way.

Sunflowers started as a bit of a personal joke between myself and Scott but we started to see beautiful bouquets mixed with white roses and felt these would set our summer wedding perfectly. We met Ellen from Enchanted Florist on the sly at a wedding fayre where she wasn’t actually working but someone introduced us and she was just brilliant! We showed her a few pictures and she designed the rest including the stair swags.

Happy weekend everyone! What are your plans for today? I’m heading home after a lovely calligraphy workshop and concert in Manchester last night… I’m ready for cat and boyfriend snuggles and a hot chocolate or two! Today I wanted to share a gloriously colourful and luxe wedding with a whimsical look – the blooms are vibrant and lush, and Kate’s stunning dress is insanely beautiful (and a little different, which I just love!)

Good morning to all of you lovely folks – I hope your day is going well so far! Do you have sunshine? There’s plenty here for you to enjoy on your screens from Sian and Stephen’s wedding day which I hope will make you happy! I love this wedding: the images are lovely and light and fresh, and the styling of the day is pretty as can be – those dried flowers are lush! Words and images by Emily Crutcher Photography

Dominique and Nick’s wedding is beautiful – gracefully styled with exquisite florals and elegant touches throughout. Their venue needs no introduction: Pendrell Hall is one of our faves here at English Wedding HQ. Dominique looks so lovely in her dress, although she admits to having her bridal ‘moment’ when she fell in love with her shoes! (which are gorgeous!!) The focus of this fab couple’s wedding is most certainly on family, and that’s what we love most of all. Involving your children in your wedding is so important, and will make the day so much more special and memorable… even if you do end up lying on the floor in your wedding dress having Thomas the Tank Engine driven across your hair (seriously, one of my fave pics! Don’t miss it at the end of this blog post!)
