Hey there lovely, how are you doing today? For those of you in Yorkshire and the north of England, I have a fabulous wedding with some lovely supplier recommendations for you today. Gorgeous couple Caitlin and Daniel married last year, choosing local suppliers to capture and style their day. Coming from New Zealand, the venue was really special for Caitlin and Daniel – The Crown Hotel dates back 300 years and has all the old English charm you’d expect from such a classic venue. Caitlin looks amazing in a beautiful lace dress, Daniel her perfect match in a classic blue suit. The flowers by York’s Hare + Howl Floristry are fabulous!

How did you choose your photographer?

Our pictures were really important to us and we were after a specific style. We looked around online and as soon as we saw previous wedding pictures that the Lloyd-Clarkes had photographed, we knew we wanted to book with them.

This is the kind of wedding photography that will blow your mind. As Leanne and Mickey told me, as soon as they saw Robin Goodlad’s images they knew they’d found their wedding photographer – there was no need to look any further. There’s something incredibly beautiful about the balance of light and drama in these images; yet there’s also a stillness, a thoughtfulness to them. And of course, the wedding photographs you’re about to see capture the joy of our gorgeous couple’s wedding day, the love and the magic of it all. Join me, be swept away by their beautiful wedding day as you scroll through and read all about this beautiful Priston Mill wedding. All images by Dorset wedding photographer Robin Goodlad. With love,

We met Robin at a wedding show in Bournemouth and we immediately loved his style. The quality of the finished products he had on display was so high that we didn’t need to look any further and booked him as soon as we could!

I’ll let you into a little secret right now: the LAST photo from Claire & Senaka’s Cotswolds wedding is my favourite. The things Gloucestershire wedding photographer Martin Dabek can do with nighttime wedding photography just blow my mind! But before you get there, we have the loveliest wedding at one of our favourite barn venues to share with you today. Our gorgeous couple tied the knot on a September day (not this year!), styling their celebrations with botanical details, pretty signage and foliage. Claire’s dress with that adorable belt and lace detail is from Clifton Brides, and we love Senaka’s suit too (and that fabulous floral tie!) – all in all, the perfect elegant rustic wedding day.

With love,

How did you choose your photographer?

We searched on the internet for photographers in Bristol and narrowed down a short list of ones who had quite a natural style. We met Martin first and booked him straight away, he was so friendly and relaxed we felt immediately at ease. We loved his photos especially the way he captured the little moments of the day.

Videographer details – and any thoughts for other couples about having a wedding video?

Love gets sweeter – Charlene was the most fantastic person to have involved in our day. So helpful from start to finish and couldn’t recommend her enough. So very happy that she was so wonderful that everyone adored her – she will be a part of my best friends wedding next year we can’t wait to see her again!

There are pooches in every picture, pretty much… which makes Emily & Joe’s day as adorable as any I’ve ever seen. These guys had the most joyful wedding in Dorset, focusing on family, fun, food and booze – and it’s EPIC! Their fabulous images are by our wonderful friend, English Wedding member and Lulworth Castle wedding photographer Linus Moran Photography. Emily is stunning in her gown by Nicola Anne Bridal, and Joe is dashing in an M&S morning suit with navy and gold bowtie.

Enjoy! This wedding is an absolute beauty. With love,

We were very much looking for more natural photos of our day rather than posed and having looked at many different options thought Linus’ photos were beautiful and exactly the style we liked.

Today’s gorgeous pair Jessica & Rhys were married at Chelsea Old Town Hall in September, describing their wedding as “a magical day surrounded by our favourite people in the world.” They both love classic styling, but most importantly wanted a relaxed affair with no stress about specific styling themes – the most important thing was to enjoy the moment with their loved ones.

Jessica’s bridal look is just stunning: “I knew I wanted to wear separates as it was a more relaxed affair. I had been searching high and low for the perfect full length silk skirt and found the one I wore on Instagram via Belle & Bunty who have the sweetest little shop in Kentish Town. I ended up pairing the skirt with a matching silk cami and lace long sleeved top, both also from Belle & Bunty. I loved the contrast of this outfit with my Mallorca dresses and the lace made me feel like Grace Kelly on her wedding day! Elegant and sophisticated.”

These two are the most adorable couple – beautiful and happy on their wedding day. Philippa is stunning in her 1920s style dress – and wonderfully honest about her experience of finding ‘the one’ when it comes to dress shopping. Their photographer was our lovely friend Grace Elizabeth, whose images are simply breathtaking. You will LOVE this! Have a magical weekend everyone! xxx

How did you choose your photographer?

Philippa’s sister-in-law is a photographer so she helped us understand what we were looking for. She managed to get us a shortlist of 20 or so photographers who were available on our Wedding Day which we went through and picked our favourites. Grace Elizabeth was the first one we got in touch with and within a couple of hours we’d spoken on the phone, decided she was definitely the one for us and booked her!

So here’s an amazing boho English country house wedding to kick off February in fabulous style! Gorgeous and glam with pale yellow styling touches and eye-catching hand lettered backdrops, Francesca & Joe’s Mulberry House wedding sings of sunshine and celebration – and I just love it!

Francesca & Joe's Mulberry House wedding, with Scott Miller Photography (20)

To create my vision, the venue needed enhancing. I wanted a very boho, whimsical, rustic feel and Starry Eyed Weddings delivered that for us!
Sacha at Starry Eyed Weddings did our flowers. What can I say – they were incredible, everyone has commented on them!! The flowers were very natural, wild and whimsical and better than I could have ever imagine. I mean we had a hanging display of flowers in the church which was spectacular and I’ve never seen anything like it before. I can’t recommend Starry Eyed Weddings more highly!

My best friend used Scott for her wedding and I really liked his photos and the video, the fact he had a drone, so I wanted the same.

Well, hello there weekend!!! It’s wonderful to be here! – and lovelies, before you head out Christmas shopping, do indulge in a little weddingness with me? I have the prettiest day to share with you, including some of the loveliest evening portraits of our gorgeous couple Leigh & Adam. The pair were married at The Plough at Leigh, and chose English Wedding member Terence Joseph as their wedding photographer. 

“We made and sourced a lot of decorations ourselves, but the barn already looked beautiful with hops and fairy lights. We loved making some of our decorations as we got friends and family onboard and was fun to do altogether! We made name places, jars with hessian and signs – who knew we had so many creative friends! My favourite thing to make was our ‘Find your name to find your place board’ – we put Polaroids of all guests on the board with string and pegs so people could take them home with them.

I just love how today’s beautiful and intimate wedding travels from city chic to seaside bliss in just a few stunning frames! Beautiful bride Jade wears a minimal and graceful dress from The Pretty Dress company and Gboyega is super stylish in a fitted suit from T.M. Lewin. They describe their September wedding as private, simplistic, intimate, meaningful… and windy! And they chose the perfect Dorset wedding photographer – our lovely friend and English Wedding member, Linus Moran Photography (www.linusmoranphotography.co.uk)

With no theme in mind, Jade and Gboyega embraced the vintage and rustic feel to their reception venue (The Pig on the Beach, at Studland). They had use of the roundhouse and summer house, which they were able to decorate with fresh flowers the day before. Surrounded by trees and with a view of the sea, the natural location on the Dorset coast gives this wedding a destination flavour – and it’s beautiful.

Have you ever wondered how wedding planners and stylists get married? Me too! Today I’m thrilled to say we have all the answers, as lovely Lauren and David are sharing their stunning Wiltshire wedding on the English Wedding blog today. Lauren is the owner of Lauren Alexander Weddings – she’s also an English Wedding reader and has shared some fantastic tips with us in a brilliant interview (which carries on beneath all of the beautiful photographs). Lauren and David describe their day as, “Fun, boozy, eclectic, beautiful, happy, musical and ‘us’.” – which is, for me, everything the perfect wedding could ever need. There are stunning styling touches as well – plenty of DIY ideas and the FUNNEST and most gorgeous wedding shoes! I just know you’ll love this! Over to Lauren… 

Stunning wedding at Larmer Tree Gardens, with Ben Goode Photography on English-Wedding.com (24)

“I used English Wedding a lot for inspiration for our wedding and within my wedding planning and styling business.  Our reception is set in the gorgeous Larmer Tree Gardens, a Victorian pleasure garden, and we got married in a lovely rustic and small village church in Milton on Stour. We used local suppliers to the area as we thought it was so important, but at the same time we also did a fair amount on our own too.”

Refined elegance is a thing we do oh so well in this country – and today’s couple Charlotte and Nick chose to keep their day perfectly elegant with pristine details and the prettiest styling. Pale blues and white florals make this a really beautiful day, with the cake and bouquet both being showstoppers I think you will LOVE!

Beautiful bride Charlotte wears a stunning traditional dress with embroidered bodice and layers upon layers of tulle for a fabulous skirt full of movement – while her gorgeous groom Nick looks the part in a traditional morning suit with a pale blue tie and white wedding waistcoat.

Charlotte and Nick chose our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography to capture their day. Nicola is a Hertfordshire wedding photographer who covers the surrounding counties, including magnificent Chicheley Hall where the wedding reception took place. Before heading to the hall, the happy couple paid a quick visit to Charlotte’s horses to say hi – and get some adorable photos of their little family! [more on Nicola’s blog here!]
