Wedding under the gateway at Leez Priory with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (26)

I hope you fall in love with today’s wedding! The florals were one thing which I fell in love as soon as I saw gorgeous bride Lorna and hubby Ryan’s beautiful images – the signage is fab (best use of an old pallet, ever!) – and the venue is spectacular. (Check out those shots taken from a distance, within Leez Priory’s breathtaking gardens – Lorna told me that was an amazing part of their day.)

“I used a small florist called ‘Poppydots‘. I actually discovered her at a wedding fair and she was brilliant as well as being reasonably priced. My color scheme was lilac grey, cream and blush pink. I wanted a wild feel to my flowers so nothing too structured. Sophie (my florist) used a lot of foliage as well to make the flowers look less prim and give the bouquets and center pieces a more rustic feel.

A family member had used Ayshea’s services at their wedding and we thought she was brilliant. We quickly got her details and arranged a meeting.

Kate & Chris were married at Hampton Court House in a decadent, dramatically styled wedding. Kate wore a gown by Sally Eagle and Valentino Rockstud pumps. They exchanged vows at her family church before heading on to Hampton Court House, of course via Bushy Park for photographs. The whole day was relaxed and stylish. Guests were treated to music from a quartet, before heading to the dramatically styled dining room for the breakfast.

I had a slightly different style of wedding dress in mind but I was drawn to this one as soon as I saw it, and when I tried it on at Luella’s Bridal it felt perfect. My mum and maid of honour both did these little intakes of breath when I came out in the sample! I only went to one bridal boutique as on my first visit I narrowed it down to two, and by my second visit I knew which one it was to be. The designer is Sally Eagle Bridal, and I also wore a bolero, handmade by Sewn Right with material from Sally Eagle (to match the dress).

I think it was the little birds on the table stationery which I fell in love with first. Then I saw how gorgeous Lizzy and Josh were, how beautifully they’d incorporated countryside touches and bright, colourful styling into their day – and I was smitten. This is a stunning wedding from beautiful Sussex venue Chafford Park, with our lovely friend and English Wedding Blog sponsor Penny Young behind the camera. Grab a cuppa, settle down somewhere cosy and enjoy!

Handmade was a big part of our day – the venue is in a beautiful setting, but is a blank canvass. We wanted it to very feel personal to us, and to enjoy a full year of preparations. We picked our own flowers at Blooming Green and arranged into mismatched jugs, just using tape to give structure instead of oasis. We also made our own buttonholes, boutonnieres, flower girl basket and bouquets.

Sifting through wedding photographs is the loveliest job, it truly is! Something about Aimee and Ben’s day made me realise every one of the celebrations I see is special for something truly unique to the couple. For Aimee and Ben, the barn location and simple, relaxed styling makes everything look perfect – and the delight on their faces makes it a treat to look through their images from beginning to end.

Images are by lovely Camilla Lucinda Photography, who told me this wedding inspired her as a photographer so much because of just how much emotion and love filled the venue. “Ben and Aimee are the couple of every photographer’s dreams, so easy, laid back, relaxed and utterly besotted with each other – and I think this shines through the photographs, (well I hope it does!) And her bridesmaids are just stunning and naturals in front of the camera too – their dresses are BEAUTIFUL!”

Village hall wedding styling ideas from Northumberland with Andy Hudson Photography (5)

If you’ve ever lived in a little English village, you’ll get how perfectly these images capture the spirit of such a place. I’m a village girl – I grew up in a tiny Cumbrian village, moved away, moved back to another Cumbrian village and put roots down here – I just love village life! So Clare and Phil’s day leapt out from all of the submissions in my inbox for today’s real wedding feature. My fave pic is the one with the whole bridal party sat by the wall… it reminds me of the lyrics to Pulp’s Disco 2000…

“Clare & Phil were married in Clare’s home village of Felton, a small rural village about 10 miles outside of Alnwick in Northumberland.  They had their ceremony at the local church before moving to the village hall for their reception.

Today’s wedding is pure class with sprinkles of elegance from beautiful Pennard House in Somerset. Our gorgeous bride Kate wears a divine Charlie Brear dress; husband Paul’s tailored suit is individual, classy and so stylish. I love how Kate sings her mum’s praises for the little crafty touches which made their wedding so lovely for a blog feature.

Kate’s words of wisdom are a slightly different spin to the usual ‘don’t stress over details’. Her advice for you is to stick to a deadline: “If it’s not done by 2 days before, give up and pour yourself a Gin and Tonic. You can sweat the small stuff that no-one will even notice – don’t bother. Just relax, have fun, and if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter.”

Weddings full of personality are the absolute best! Today’s gorgeous bride and groom had a relaxed, outdoor/festival style theme and being big cider lovers they incorporated this into the day. I adore the sunflowers and mixed wildflower bouquet and table arrangements – they add fun and sunshine in the loveliest way ever! And isn’t Nicola beautiful? Honestly, such a gorgeous couple and I’m thrilled to be sharing their wedding with you all today!

“We were privileged to have Kirsty Andrews from Escential Blooms do our flowers. An absolutely fantastic lady who is so great to work with and brings your ideas to life. We wanted wild flowers and Kirsty used those that were in season at the time. We didn’t want a set colour theme and Kirsty listened to this and used so many different colours with a range of beautiful smells! From the wedding arbour to the tables and the addition of flowers to the cake and table plan. Even some for my hair. Just stunning!

You know when you look at a rainbow, and it’s so amazing it gets in your eyes and stays there all day? No? You’re about to, with today’s wonderfully colourful English wedding. The hot air balloon is only one of so many visual delights (and hey, if you’re training to be a balloon pilot!!!… it’s got to be done!) The styling and decor make this wedding so fabulously fun, unique and memorable – it has to be one of my favourite weddings on the blog this year. Gorgeous Kristy and Ollie shared lots of info about their day, so do read their fantastic interview after the images!

“We made our own invitations, created some of the venue styling pieces such as bunting, paper cranes, we put together some glass vials with wildflower seeds for wedding favours too. I was lucky to have some help from friends and family with all these.

What an amazing wedding this is – I’m so excited to share this wonderful day with you! The dried flowers are fabulous as far as details go, and I love Gemma & Christian to bits – their gorgeous smiles make this an unmissable day, it’s perfect for the blog!

Everything about Gemma & Christians wedding was super – from the traditional church wedding, to the dried floral headpieces, to the rustic DIY Barn with hay bales as walls, to the afternoon tea wedding breakfast!

Mine and my bridesmaids hair pieces were real dried vintage flowers, handmade, and into a headband for myself and three matching combs for my bridesmaids – the supplier was Folky Dokey. Very unique and again fitted the whole theme perfectly, carrrying the vintage style throughout. My shoes were my favourite shoe brand – Irregular Choice. They were lacy and slightly vintage to match my theme. I loved them. One of my bridesmaids bought me my blue garter and I carried a butterfly brooch on my bouquet from a close family friend who had recently passed away before the wedding, which was a lovely touch and felt very special for me to have close by.

Jack and Catherine’s wedding shone from my inbox – their images are so fabulously vibrant, and their day is full of joy, laughter and love. I adore Catherine’s bespoke dress, the floral styling and the ambience of the day which makes me smile every time I look at their photographs. This is amazing and I hope you love it as much as I do!

Garden party with a modern twist for a chic English wedding blog in Manchester with ZT Photography (32)

Our wedding flowers were arranged by Sian and the team at The Flower Lounge, Didsbury. We really cannot recommend them enough, their creations are absolutely stunning and they surpassed any expectations we had. We were overwhelmed by how beautiful the bouquets and table centre pieces looked.

We created a “draw your own self portrait”, inviting guests to draw a little doodle of themselves on a giant gold framed easel, as an alternative to a guest book. We sprayed jam jars gold to hold tea lights and flowers. We hung gold frames from trees so guests could pose behind them for selfies and filled a three tier garden planter with nibbles and treats to keep the guests going throughout the day. They went down really well and we enjoyed creating all the homemade elements of our wedding. Also, with it being late September we knew it could get a little chilly, so provided a basket of blankets to keep our guests warm and cosy.

Today’s wedding is a blissfully sunny treat for your eyes… the images on the bridge are just so incredible, the light, the beautiful bride and groom – it has everything, it really does. I hope you love today’s wedding blog as much as I do – what a wonderful location with beautiful imagery!
