Today we join luxury wedding planner Elegante by Michelle J for an exquisite styled shoot from beautiful Hampshire. Four Seasons Hampshire is a luxury hotel, set in the most stunning location with beautiful gardens and grounds. It is a gorgeous venue for couples who are looking for a luxury countryside UK wedding. The styling of our shoot today was beautifully curated by Michelle, working with a colour palette of jewel colours to fit with the hotel décor. Michelle collaborated with a fantastic team of talented and passionate Hampshire wedding suppliers, whose work we are in awe of today here at English Wedding! The stunning images are by Paulo Santos Photography.
Timeless wedding inspiration inspired by my favourite parts of the world: the wild beach of Askam-in-Furness, and the remote fellsides of Great Langdale. We’re thrilled to learn that outdoor weddings can now take place in England – but we do encourage all of you to look into independent celebrants so you can have your wedding ceremony wherever you’d like, not just on licensed premises! Here’s a glimpse of how incredible your anywhere-wedding could be.

Huge thanks today to lovely Kay from PKay Bridal, who sent us this stunning styled wedding shoot from beautiful Cumbria. The images are fabulous, the table styling out of this world – and I’m in LOVE with Harpreet’s beautifully embroidered wedding outfit. It’s all from a styled photography workshop run by My Pretties UK – as I type, they’ve 3 workshops in the pipelines which still have availability and I’d highly recommend them!
Kay has shared her gorgeous photos from this warm and romantic shoot with a rich colour palette that is perfect for any season. Hidden River Barn is a simply breath-taking venue literally hidden away in the Carlisle countryside. Surrounded by woodlands and it’s own private river… who wouldn’t want to get married here?
What happens when you combine luxury and simplicity? Magic, that’s what! We’re thrilled to be sharing a beautiful, natural inspiration shoot with some fabulous English Wedding members today! Lovely Captured by Crissi* sent this one in, and I was so excited to see our lovely friends Whitestem and Katherine and her Camera on the team who worked so hard to create this beauty! The styling is out of this world, we’re head over heels in love with all the lush greenery, and the images are beautiful, heartfelt and full of warmth.
I wonder if 2021 will be the beginning of a surge in elopements… a year when couples put being married before all the frills of a wedding, and tie the knot, just the two of them, in the most romantic and dreamiest of ways. Perhaps this beautiful feature will inspire a few of you lovelies to consider an elopement. (And remember, the big party can always come later!)
