So today’s wedding… it’s just gorgeous, with so many elegant DIY styling touches. Jen & Mick got married on 28th July 2018 at the Granary Estates in Woodditton. Jen was a really chilled bride and the wedding was really relaxed and full of smiles all day. Jen’s Jenny Packham dress suits her perfectly – she’s absolutely stunning, don’t you think? And Mick looks fabulous in a Ted Baker suit with a coral and ivory buttonhole to match Jen’s gorgeous bouquet! Images are by lovely Sally at Rose Images, and the venue is The Granary Estates. Flowers are by Clare Jones Floral Design.

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m sharing a lovely wedding with an important message from beautiful bride Danelle. This gorgeous couple married at Helmingham Hall Gardens at the beginning of autumn, and their day is everything they could have dreamed of: with pretty and romantic styling touches, a stunning dress, pretty bridesmaids and a venue to die for! The pictures by our lovely friend and English Wedding member Ayshea Goldberg capture the key moments and details beautifully – and I love how blissfully happy these two look when they’re together!

Something I rarely hear about – and I actually wish we were able to talk about this more on wedding blogs – is anxiety. The build up to a wedding is huge, and Danelle has very bravely shared her experience of feeling overwhelmed with anxiety on the big day. I’m sure she’s not alone in feeling this way, and I would urge you to look for help if your own feelings of anxiety are clouding your wedding journey. There’s a lovely article on Ayshea Goldberg’s blog about dealing with anxiety on your wedding day. Danelle – you are beautiful and brave, and we’re so grateful to you for sharing your gorgeous day on English Wedding today!

I am totally in denial of any gales blowing a hoolie outside my window right now!! Come and join me because it’s SPRING here on English Wedding and we’re filling our eyes with sunshine and flowers… and the stunning wedding of Milly and Nick. They married at Little Glemham Church in Suffolk, and celebrated with a beautiful reception at  Glemham Hall in May. Their day was traditional and relaxed, with wild white English flowers and luscious greenery in keeping with the Suffolk hedgerows and pebble greys as they were so close to the sea!

I very nearly went for a wedding dress that was entirely different, the first dress had pockets so instantly I loved it but when I went to try it on a second time with a view to putting down the deposit it was 30 degrees outside and I was so uncomfortable, all I wanted to do was get out of it!

Let’s relax into Wednesday lunchtime with a beautiful English wedding, shall we? Hattie and Max tied the knot at Helmingham Hall in Suffolk on a beautiful July day. Helmingham itself is a breathtaking venue – and one we’ve never featured on the blog before today! It’s a magnificent Tudor hall with an actual moat, in the grounds of a 400 acre deer park – what more could you possibly want?

I love the lightness of Heidi and Shaun’s pretty Glemham Hall wedding. Their flowers are deliciously pretty daisies with peonies and roses – and they fill my heart with summer vibes! Glemham Hall is one of Suffolk’s most beautiful venues: a 16th century family home surrounded by 300 acres of countryside and with its own 170-capacity marquee which is perfect for elegant weddings. Our beautiful bride tells us a little more about the day:

Our suppliers were mostly local. Karen Lear Florist, Tonia Edwards Cakes, My big Fat wedding disco, Blue daffodil events catering, Ayshea Goldberg Photography, Galley Slaves ice cream bikes. Our wedding stationery was provided by Andrew at Vintage Designs. Andrew provided a very personalised service and was extremely helpful.

I had a natural looking bouquet, with peonies, roses and other garden flowers from Karen Lear Flowers. The colours were pale pinks, whites and lilacs. Flower girls had gypsophila crowns and a small bouquet of mini daisies.

Today’s gorgeous couple Hannah and Tom had plans for a gorgeous outdoor ceremony at Sibton Park… and the sun shone until the very last minute, when it poured. Not to be outdone, they brought everything inside and had a cosy, magical ceremony and celebration indoors. I love the smiles, the laughter, the ‘we’re all in this together‘ spirit of the day, and I simply had to share this wedding with you.

“Our venue wasn’t a wedding venue. It is a country house that you hire to stay in. We just hosted a wedding while we were staying there. This meant I had to arrange getting EVERYTHING for the wedding in so all decorating was done by us. It did mean that it was unique to us and we were able to choose just what we wanted. Sibton Park had had a handful of weddings there before us and the house staff were incredibly helpful. They have since become a bit more of a “wedding venue”.”

The style of Chell and Ben’s wedding is wonderful: this is a themed wedding done beautifully, and it’s a joy to scroll through their images! When this wonderfully sparkly, gold, glamorous wedding landed in my inbox I knew you’d adore every detail…

Gold, sparkly vintage glamour wedding at Woodhall Manor - Rose Images (8)

Oh my god I was obsessed with my wedding dress! We knew the theme we wanted almost straight away; Great Gatsby Glamour. I went online to search for 1920s style dresses and instantly fell in love with the Jenny Packham Eden dress in Platinum. It had 1920’s decadence but with a bridal twist. Effortlessly stylish and beautiful without being over the top. The detailing of all the sequins and beading made it stand out above all other dresses. I am still totally in love with it now and am always looking for 1920s events I can use as an excuse to wear it again. I’m even contemplating bringing it on our honeymoon to the Maldives so I can get some more beautiful photographs in it!

Today’s wedding is stunning… full of sparkles, the most amazing flowers and luscious greenery – and with a gorgeous, smiley bride and groom whose style I LOVE!!! This is such amazing inspo for an autumn or winter wedding, with soft colour tones and thrilling textures to the flowers and leaves which set the scene for the whole day. I adore the venue with those fabulous beams…

My wedding flowers were based around anemones. The foliage was very silver, using eucalyptus. The flowers were grey and deep blue. I wanted the bouquets and centre pieces to be unstructured and informal. They’re by Sarah from Bramble & Berry Www.brambleandberry.co.uk

I didn’t do a lot to the venue as it was very clean and crisp with large chandeliers and modern lighting. I brought in sequin table cloths and we put fairy lights up on the back wall. And I had L O V E letter custom made for us by my friend who is a woodworker.

I LOVE today’s real wedding! It’s soooo pretty… all the delicate pinks and the fabulous venue work together beautifully. And Alex & Gareth are just gorgeous! It’s just perfect, in every detail. If you’re looking for the prettiest feminine wedding style inspiration, you’ll love this!

For flowers we used Myrtle and Mint. They were absolutely amazing! Charlotte was there to answer I had any questions I had, or me changing my mind on things, right up until the wedding. When the flowers arrived, they were more beautiful than what I had expected. I was blown away. I would recommend them highly.

Our venue was absolutely beautiful in its own right, so it didn’t need much decoration. However, we wanted to make sure we put our own stamp on our day and get our personalities across. We made a giant ‘guest book’ with every guest’s photo printed, that they could sign and write a message to us on. We wanted to do something a little different to the traditional guest book and we loved the idea of our guests coming across old or funny photos of themselves and it being a talking point.

It’s really important to me to feature REAL weddings on the English Wedding Blog. For me, that means not importing the most lavish or unusual weddings from overseas photographers, but sharing UK weddings from my photographer friends. And Anna and Dale’s wedding strikes me as one which is elegant, timeless and uniquely English in flavour. They’re gorgeous; their day is simply styled and looks lovely, and I love their images too!

Real wedding at Kersey Mill with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (4)

This wedding was just perfect!  Everything had been planned so carefully and worked so well on the day. The couple are lovely, their colour scheme was elegant – navy, silver and ivory flowers, their venue was idyllic (I love working here).

Anna is beautiful and her choice of dress was exactly what I’d imagined her in too.

I have to confess I’ve neglected my little Vespa over recent months: but seeing today’s wedding makes me desperate to go and play out again! Lovely Suffolk photographer Ayshea Goldberg knows me too well: send me a gorgeous wedding with a Vespa and I simply can’t say no. I love this so very much!

The venue and its floral decorations are super pretty: I know those of you with a love of traditional weddings will adore this. Rosanne is absolutely stunning; Isaac is ever so handsome and that grin for his bride and his Vespa have kept me smiling since the moment I first saw this amazing wedding!

Glemham has a beautiful staircase in the Grand Hall, which our amazing florist decorated with flowers –  but we let the rest of the venue speak for itself. The Rose Garden in particular was stunning when we got married in September. The reception meal was held in the marquee outside, but we kept things fairly simple with tall, elegant centre pieces.

Use local suppliers to save money – so say Helen and Declan whose gorgeous wedding at White Dove Barn we’re featuring on the English Wedding Blog this morning. It’s good advice: there are amazing creative suppliers nestled all over the country and you’ll find them at craft fairs, in art galleries and at the best wedding showcases… even from venue recommendations.

This is a charming wedding for a beautiful bride and her handsome groom – and I love their approach to styling their day. Helen told me, “we wanted to make sure we went local as much as possible – so things like hairdresser, florist, make up were all local to Suffolk… everything else came from recommendations or people that we knew.”
