Good morning lovely! We have a week bursting full of weddings ahead – and today’s is fabulously glamorous, elegant and stylish. Gorgeous couple Emily and Adam tied the knot at Le Talbooth last May, choosing the very excellent D&A Photography to capture their day. Emily’s dress is a stunner – and the boys all look fantastic in black tie, don’t you think?

Relax & enjoy this beauty, it’s a special one!

With love,

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Beyond pleased! Not only were his pictures so beautiful his presence on the day was so lovely and calming. It was like having your best friend take your pictures and we had only met the once before.

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

We loved the simplicity of our venue, we felt like we didn’t need any extra decorations because the grounds were already so beautiful.

Today’s stunning couple were married at Chippenham Park Hall in the springtime, and styled their day with the most incredible cherry blossom and pink peonies. Maryanne’s dress is incredible: the designer is Jenny Packham and the embroidery detail couldn’t be more perfect for the springtime! She looks beautiful – every bit the English springtime bride – and Adam her perfect match in his made to measure suit, bought in Dubai.

The colour theme was pink, white, green and gold. Both the marquee and church were covered in cherry blossom with real trees lining the aisle in the church. In the marquee the mixture of trees and hanging flowers from the ceiling was truly spectacular! The floral creations were the work of the amazing Lucy Vail. Maryanne told me her favourite flowers were the peonies and hydrangeas – the smells were simply divine!

This week has FLOWN by! Lovelies, I hope you’ve enjoyed all the beautiful weddings and shoots we’ve shared on the blog this week. Time now for a relaxing weekend and some sunshine… but I want to leave you with something incredibly beautiful. I love everything about Maisie and David’s day – it’s full of fun, love and laughter… and the little details are just stunning (as are our gorgeous bride and groom!) All images by our lovely English Wedding member and Bristol wedding photographer Joab Smith Photography.

Have a lovely weekend,

How did you choose your photographer?

Lots of searching on the internet. We were really impressed with his portfolio pictures. Joab then came for a visit and his patient & relaxed attitude won us over.

Joab was absolutely brilliant! He had clearly done his research on the location and we think the photos speak for themselves. There is not a single guest we have shown the photos to who has not been seriously impressed with the photographs.

Welcome to May, lovelies. I thought we’d kick off the month with a truly enchanting wedding to lift our spirits. Valerie and David’s May wedding is unique and beautifully memorable, with lilac as the main wedding colour inspired by their favourite flower wisteria, and yellow accents for bright and cheerful contrast and sunshine. Coming from Cambridge and Southern Ukraine, David and Valerie’s day combines their little world in creative ways, with Ukrainian delicacies and wedding games – oh, and the ‘stealing of the bride’ tradition! The look is very much a traditional English wedding, with beautiful sunshine and the most magical sunset over Richmond Park at the end of the day.

Valerie’s wedding dress is breathtaking – the beautiful bride searched high and low in London without finding her dream dress, then on a trip to Kiev to visit friends she went to bridal boutique Anne Mariee and fell head over heels in love with this stunning designer gown. Valerie had a lot of compliments on the wedding day and she really loved her dress – and I can TOTALLY see why!

Just a couple of days before lockdown was announced, beautiful bride Jemma married her handsome man Antony at the Old Marylebone Town Hall. This is a really special day and I’m proud to be able to share it with you. There were just two witnesses, Jemma’s mother, the celebrant and their photographer Sarah. Because of coronavirus, sadly some guests were no longer able to attend.

The wedding day was very intimate but beautiful – Jemma got ready at an apartment beside the venue, the ceremony took place in the Westminster Room, they drank champagne, took photos and then headed off for an overnight stay at the Ritz. Jemma’s beautiful dress is from Monsoon Bridal. Antony told us they both loved their outfits, although this wasn’t the first dress Jemma had bought (it is absolutely stunning though! – I do love Monsoon’s collection: Jemma wears ‘Beatrice’ as though it was made for her) – Antony bought his stylish bespoke suit from an online tailor.

Two things – when I stop giggling. Two quite important things –

1) this is actually genuinely REALLY beautiful and

2) injecting a little bit of happy chuckling into any lockdown day is the best thing you can possibly do. It’s definitely what solid-haired Rachel & Rowan did on their wedding day last week, in the company of Yorkshire wedding photographer Andy Matheson.

They’re the best-looking Lego couple we’ve EVER featured here on English Wedding, and despite a few mishaps (Rowan slipped and fell on the lentil-confetti, but don’t worry: he was ok) their day is – and now I’m NOT laughing: really, truly, beautifully captured!

Andy Matheson – you’re a genius. I’ve seen a few of these, but none anywhere near as beautiful. You did FIREWORKS!

Lovely readers, please do share this with everyone you know. I hope it will lighten the stress of reschedules and postponements for a little while at least. I love it to bits!

Lovely couple Pippa & David had a joyful spring elopement in Dartmoor back in the days when spring was simply glorious spring, and we could all go out and get wed and do all the wonderful things! I wanted to share it with you today as a reminder that normality WILL resume, and that the future can still be more beautiful than ever. Patience, my lovelies – this will pass. So let’s join the happy couple who took spring as the inspiration behind their wedding theme. The sense of joy and optimism at seeing the first green shoots of the season and splashes of yellow daffodils. Their vision was for everything to be fresh and vibrant, offset by white and earthy tones and textures. Their wedding venue Ever After – A Dartmoor Wedding took care of all the sourcing and styling, and Pippa & David’s day is just perfect. All images are captured by super lovely human and wedding photographer Clare Kinchin Photography.

Hey lovelies, I hope you’re all staying safe and your loved ones are ok. It’s been one hell of a tough week – but I’m trying my best to bring a little spark of sunshine and joy with some beautiful real weddings. Today’s the turn of gorgeous couple Laura and Jonno, whose luxury wedding at Caswell House is simply wonderful to see. The flowers are insane, the dreamy May sunshine is a welcome reminder that we can all look forward to warmer days soon!

Elliot photographed my sister’s wedding and, we not only loved the final photographs, but had amazing memories about how he was on the day. Elliot has a wonderful way of being there for every moment, without feeling like he’s there the whole time. There’s no unbearable hovering or feeling as though you’re surrounded by paparazzi. He made both myself and my husband relax and enjoy the photography – both being fairly awkward in front of the camera, this was pretty remarkable! He made the whole process fun and comfortable. And, the resulting images are fantastic!

THREE fabulous dresses, delicious styling, and a celebration filled with pure joy – this is just one of the most wonderful, captivating weddings we’ve ever seen. I am head over heels with Priyal and Dan’s day, and I hope you will love it too! The photos really do speak for themselves – but don’t miss Dan & Priyal’s interview at the end of the feature. It’s a bit of a treat for me when a groom fills out our interview form, and Dan’s words are a lovely read: from the tear in his eye as he saw Priyal walking down the aisle, to his delight when she was the first to make a speech, to his very excellent tip about not drinking 3 vodka shots after the first dance… Images are by the awesome MIKI Studios, who I am thrilled to say are members of English Wedding.

I’d marry these two myself… gorgeous Martha & Phil had the most joyful, character-filled, fun and beautiful wedding at Bruisyard. They say the LOVELIEST things about their wedding suppliers – lovely Emily Tyler Photography gets a glowing and heartfelt review from the happy couple. They’ve also recommended a huge list of Suffolk wedding suppliers from personal experience, so do check those out (at the end of the feature). Do NOT scroll too fast through all the images though, because they’re BLOODY BEAUTIFUL. What an amazing day… Martha, Phil, congratulations! We think you’re awesome!!

Our photographer Emily was THE BEST. She was really friendly and warm from the get go and was always excited for us every time we spoke. She even sent us a little prep package with tea and chocolate and a booklet to answer all the questions we might have. We also decided to have a couple’s shoot a few weeks before the wedding which gave us a chance to meet Emily and get used to being photographed – definitely the right choice, we had a lot of fun and had some great photos of us to put on the tables! Emily is an amazing photographer – she captured the day and most importantly, every bit of the joy.

“Marleybrook House is already beautifully styled which really appealed to us. Once we added flowers and balloons we really needed little else. It was important for us not to have to spend lots of time preparing the venue so we could spend time with family and friends who had travelled to Kent for the wedding. We left most of the hard work to our trusty suppliers and Tanith our lovely wedding planner at Marleybrook House.

So this one’s really close to home for me: a Lake District wedding at one of our finest venues, nestling amongst the highest English mountains in the charming village of Grasmere. The venue is the Michelin-starred The Forest Side – a gem I’ve dined at, organised a photoshoot at, and where my mum & dad used to stay on their Lakes holidays before I was born!

Gorgeous couple Hemal and Katie had the most wonderful Lake District wedding, surrounded by their closest family and friends and with the venue dressed from head to toe in the most incredible florals, courtesy of outstanding florist Kevin from Brackens of Bowness. Their amazing photographer is lovely Tiree Dawson, and their day is already going down as one of my favourites on the blog for 2020 (and yup, I know it’s only January but WOWEEE!!!)

Word of mouth – Tiree was recommended to us by a friend who had a relative who had used her before. After an initial consultation we really liked her and therefore proceeded.
