Delbury Hall is one of Shropshire’s loveliest wedding venues. With a country house, a lake with swans and ducks swimming about and beautiful gardens it is the perfect place for a wedding. Beautiful bride Siân and her gorgeous groom Edward were married there in the summer and chose Tony Fanning to capture their day. It’s perfect… and I have to say I love their wedding hashtag and the beautifully realised shed to go with it! Siân – Edward… get it?!

“When you plan a wedding for the first time, you discover so many suppliers in the local area that you didn’t know existed! We always asked suppliers for recommendations of others they had worked with before, with the idea that they would have a good knowledge of who was reliable in the local area. With seven months to plan the wedding, we did find that some suppliers we tried were booked up for our date, but they were always happy to recommend someone else and we didn’t struggle at all.

If you ever needed proof that you can have a beautiful wedding, on a budget, and make it look even better than all the weddings you see on major wedding blogs – then beautiful bride Charlotte and her handsome groom Jay are here to show you a thing or two. Their wedding is sublime. The location is stunning, the details are gorgeous, and the images are out of this world…

I always look at the guy’s suits when I’m choosing weddings for the blog – and in this case, Jay’s shoes are pretty fab as well! Charlotte told me “We always wanted the men in something a bit different and wool like (especially seeing as though it was a winter wedding) and we just couldn’t find anything like this to hire, and didn’t have the budget to have something made just for Jay. In the end we ended up finding the perfect suit in Next and luckily we could get them all in everyone’s size.” I think they look great.

There’s always a little nervous excitement when I receive a submission from the lovely Rob & Sarah Gillespie Photography. I know their images are outstanding, I know there’ll be an incredible selection to choose from, and I know I’ll want to show you every. single. one.

So I’ve struggled (happily!) to whittle today’s real wedding down from eighty photos to just sixty (still a lot!) and I’m beaming because I know you’ll love these so very much. Beautiful bride Sarah did: “I had the most incredible memories from my wedding day… what astounded me, when I saw my wedding photos for the first time, was how those memories had been so powerfully and perfectly brought to life. Those intimate, exclusive moments had been captured for us to share with whoever we wanted, it was a truly remarkable experience seeing them, leaving me in tears, for all the right reasons.

Today’s real wedding is the prettiest treat for your eyes… with the softest pastel shades and loveliest couple. We’re talking dreamy decor and delicious design from the Wroxeter Hotel in Shropshire – and you’ll love it!

Claire and Oliver married in May and styled their wedding as an afternoon tea party. They loved the idea of tea and cake for their reception instead of a formal wedding breakfast, and chose the pastel shades to give a real spring flavour to their day.

The gorgeous couple sourced suppliers with help from Pinterest and recommendations, and tried to support local businesses wherever possible (which makes me very happy!). Claire made as many decorations as she could: hand painted initials, handwritten place names and a super pretty table plan were all her handiwork.

James’s dad found today’s wedding cake stand in a field… and Amy’s mum arranged all of the gorgeous wedding flowers with help from Amy’s sister and maid of honour. Finley the cat modelled for stationery design, while Amy’s brother made the save the dates. Cakes, games, decorations were all home made with lots of help from family and friends… and this is every bit the modern English wedding. You know what? I LOVE it!

Amy’s advice says it all: “If you have friends and family who offer help, accept it! Not only does it save money but it ads such a special personal touch. We were incredibly lucky to have such talented friends and family to help us!” And aren’t they just…

Hello again lovely blog readers! Did you have a weddingy weekend or stay in and snuggle away from the cold? I’ve been out exploring the Lake District and buying little goodies to use for my calligraphy and then for Christmas… I’ll show you very soon! In the meantime I have an incredibly beautiful Iscoyd Park wedding blog to share with you all today.

Katie and Craig were married in June and told me their wedding was “The most joy-filled, whirlwind of a day surrounded by the people we love.” It sounds perfect, doesn’t it… and it looks even better. You’re going to love this!

Good morning! A special hello to everyone who’s popped back (although not literally popped, because I was careful with you) after reading yesterday’s oh-so-tempting blog post about Bev and Nath’s Walcot Hall wedding! Today as promised I can share all the fabulous details of their day as well as some wonderfully spontaneous, romantic, beautiful moments from the wedding reception.

DIY wedding UK Walcot Hall (1)

Bev told me the DIY was hard work but it meant they had the most personalised wedding. She said there was nothing they would have changed. Nath spent many a weekend stamping quotes from films and songs on cards that were placed around the venue, and this loveliest of couples took the time to write a small personal message on the back of each person’s place setting tag – it’s one of the lovely touches that prove to me that details on a wedding day can mean so much to people. The trick is to find a balance – and Bev and Nath did it perfectly!

Hello there! What do I have for you this morning… let’s see. A romantic, DIY-filled, inspiring wedding with hydrangeas, home baking, wildflowers… but I am only going to show you half of Bev and Nath’s incredible Walcot Hall wedding, because there’s far too much for one day. I don’t want any of you lovely blog readers to pop, after all. Or me!

So today I’m going to share some beautiful things with you, and then tomorrow I’m going to share even more. We’re talking hydrangea bouquets in a rainbow of colours, a gorgeous UK bride and groom, a quirky dream wedding venue, a cathedral length veil and a wedding dress by Romantica of Devon. Bev and Nath’s wedding also features individual bridesmaid styles, tons of ideas for reception decor (coming up tomorrow!) and the most sublimely romantic wedding photography…

Photographer Emma B says she was “in wedding heaven” with Bev and Nath at Walcot Hall – and I can really see why this gorgeous day made such an impression.  I know you’ll love it too. Remember to come back tomorrow for more!
