Happy weekend my lovelies!! I hope you’re keeping snug and warm, wherever you are! Boy, is it COLD outside!!! But what better way to spend a chilly old English weekend than indulging in a little wedding pretty! Today’s gorgeous happy couple are Debbie and Sunil, who chose Woburn Sculpture Gallery for their marriage and celebrations. Our lovely friend Nicola Norton was their Woburn wedding photographer for the day. Remember the heatwave last summer? This wedding fell bang in the middle of it all… so let’s transport you back to warm, sunny days for something absolutely stunning!

The venue has more wow factor than most – with impressive pillars and marble sculptures surrounding the space, and a row of windows letting in all the light – it was built as an orangery in the olden days when they didn’t have an inkling of how gorgeous a wedding venue it would make! While hiring Woburn Sculpture Gallery doesn’t come cheap, you will save a fortune on venue decor here! Our happy couple kept things to a minimum by opting for a simple bouquet and some light up letters along the wall, which make a great contrast with the old fashioned portraits on the walls above!

I thought it would be lovely to end this week with a beautiful wedding full of swoonworthy styling ideas and gorgeous sunshine! So happy Sunday everyone – here are gorgeous bride and groom Fiona and Byrne, with their West Dean College (Sussex) wedding. The florals by The Floral Artisan are spectacular, the marquee styling is lush and luxurious. I hope you love it!

Byrne and Fiona chose wedding photographers Beard + Mane to capture their day.

It was the most glorious summer day, the venue was outstandingly beautiful (pergola and marquee), the couple were a total delight and the dancefloor was completely insane. I’m not sure anyone (especially the DJ) expected the riot he got when he played Toto’s Africa but I guess that’s what you should expect when half the guests are South African! You’ll find listening to the song and scrolling through this photos is a particularly pleasing experience…!

Sometimes I save up my very favourite weddings for the weekend, so we can all spend a little longer browsing through all the gorgeous images and Pinning every stunning detail and idea. Today is one of those days… beautiful Farhaa and Ferd celebrated in style with a fabulously styled and gloriously photographed wedding at Ariana Gardens in Essex. Their photographer was the wonderfully talented Emily Black Photography, who is based in Hampshire. Grab a cuppa, get comfy and enjoy this beautiful Indian wedding with me…. and oh, wouldn’t a slice of this breathtaking cake be perfect right now?!

We chose a marble themed cake with a special topper saying “And so the adventure begins” as we are both quite adventurous it suited our personalities.

We had a stage area with a flower backdrop and two big cherry blossom trees on each side. We went for a floral theme and loved the idea of cherry blossoms. The venue had a tree growing inside and added that extra décor.

I love the bright colours and the sunflowers in today’s wedding – it’s the perfect little blast of sunshine to brighten up our screens and our smiles when the weather outside is… oh let’s just not look!!! Join me in gazing happily at the gorgeous pics from gorgeous Hannah and Nathanael’s pretty sunflower wedding – it’s glorious!

Our experience was that weddings are as expensive as you make them to be. We were keen to save money and so got loads of our friends and family involved with everything! Our maid of honour’s mum made our wedding cake, Hannah rented her wedding dress, our friends designed all the stationery and so much more! It was a great way not only to save money, but also to involve people in our process and to make them feel a part of it.

Although today’s wedding starts with a church service, the vibe is wonderfully whimsical and woodlandy, with celebrations under canvas and even a hand fasting ceremony in the afternoon! The venue is Bedfordshire’s enchanting Tofte Manor; the photographer is our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography.

Gorgeous couple Georgina and Ben had a relaxed and beautiful wedding in the summer. Their day is beautifully styled with glorious bouquets of pink peonies, purple and coral blooms with splashes of greenery and fabulous textures. The peony styling continues through to the wedding cake, which is displayed prettily on rustic wooden tables at the wedding breakfast. Georgina’s stunning lace dress is the star of the show, and her delicate flower crown is just beautiful!

If your husband to be is out on his bike this Sunday afternoon, then this is for YOU! If you’ve both been cycling today and you’re relaxing after an exhilarating day in the saddle, then you’re going to love this more than anything you’ve ever seen on a wedding blog. Natalie and James – who’s a keen cyclist! – had a cycling themed wedding at Rockbeare Manor in August, and incorporated some ingenious styling touches into their day. Their photographer was our wonderful friend and English Wedding member Martin Dabek Photography, who captured the day so beautifully! I love the bicycle wheels with foliage on the walls, the table plan with a shelf full of cyclists… actually I love the whole day. And can we skip straight to that cake?!! The beautiful cake was made by Yvonne at Cherry Blossom Cakes and decorated with flowers by Emma at Brompton Buds.

Colour makes me happy – and colourful, cheerful, vibrant weddings make me the happiest wedding blogger in the world! Today we’re sharing Charlie and Harry’s wedding at Eversholt Hall. Their day had a boho feel to it, with gorgeous bride Charlie in a flower crown of pink and ivory blooms with berries, and Harry looking relaxed and summery in a smart blue suit with white tie (a look I’m kind of loving right now!). Pics are by lovely Buckinghamshire wedding photographer Katrina Matthews, who’s very kindly introduced the wedding for us today!

Harry and Charlie got married on the 28th of July this year in Eversholt Hall, a lovely village hall sat on a little hill overlooking the village green.

They planned a DIY wedding, getting lots of family and friends involved. They had family perform with their band out on the green, friends make their wedding cake and the mother of the groom created the beautiful flower bouquets.

“Our wedding flowers were even more than what I was expecting, our florist Jenny from Jenny Penny Flowers in Frodsham completely went above and beyond in providing everything which I had envisaged. Jenny understood what I was asking for and provided us with more, we had so many compliments on the flowers and the table decorations. The flowers were an important factor on our day as they set the tone for our botanical feel and I could not have chosen someone better than Jenny to trust to do this, they were absolutely perfect.

Happy Friday folks! What are your plans for the weekend? We’ll be relaxing after a tough week of man flu, I think!! But let’s hark back to the summer months, shall we? Beautiful Leila & her gorgeous groom Mike had a laid back outdoor wedding in June at the very lovely Shortmead House in Biggleswade, which is set in the Bedfordshire countryside. It had a very English country garden feel, which photographer Lorna Newman has captured beautifully for us. I hope you love this stunning summer wedding as much as I do!

“I had always loved Grace Loves Lace dresses but never thought I would have had the chance to try one let along buy one! They opened a showroom in London and it went from there…

Happy Monday lovelies! How cold has it been this weekend though?! Even today I’m in my snuggliest jumper and slipper boots (the joy of working from home!) – but as ever, the beauty of a wedding blog is that we can take you back to warm summer days! And I have a beauty of a farm wedding for you today, with a (genius or what?!) chicken and egg theme. The cake is one of my fave details – and our beautiful bride and groom are here to tell you all about their day.

“We used our agricultural barn and the Mother of the bride and her friends used flowers and foliage from their gardens, fairy lights and our handmade bunting to transform the barn. Guests were seated on hay bales with handmade cushions which I made with my cousin and Great grandmothers quilted throws.

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Becky and Liam described their big day as like a big, summer children’s birthday party, with cricket! They included all the best things about summer: the outdoors, sunshine, cricket, Pimms, barbecued food, ice cream, children running around in the grass… and you know what? When a wedding is all about family and children it becomes SO much FUN!
