Happy Friday!! We have a sparkly beautiful wedding to share with you to end the week in style! Prepare for sparkles, smiles and tons of fabulous styling touches with lots of GIN!!! Eleanor and Martyn had a gorgeous wedding at Pendrell Hall in Staffordshire. Eleanor wore a beautiful Theia Couture gown and her Hollywood waves for her wedding hair really completed the look. Eleanor and Martyn both love gin so there was a gin theme running throughout their day, including a gin table plan and a gin station. What could be more perfect for a Friday blog feature?! Enjoy.

How was your weekend? Ours has been lovely with a day’s tidying up (doesn’t it feel amazing when a forgotten corner of your house gets all neat and shiny?!!) and a day of tootling about in the Lake District. So I’m feeling refreshed and excited for the week ahead, and all the more so because we have some fabulous weddings to share with you from around the UK. We’ll start in Staffordshire with Lucy and Tom’s brilliant wedding story, which I love to bits!

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!)

Happy Saturday, you beautiful people! Whatever your plans today, I hope they’re full of love and hugs – this week has been heartbreaking and it really brings home the need to enjoy every moment we’re lucky enough to be living happily and in love. Publicly on the blog I’m still sharing beautiful things as an escape from the everyday and as a focus on the future – and so today I have something extraordinarily wonderful to show you.

Lovely Emma Jane got in touch to share this stunning walled garden wedding inspo with us all. I adore the styling – the hand lettering, the little golden pears.
