I love the romance of an overseas elopement or a tiny, intimate wedding somewhere the evening sunshine will last forever, don’t you? Even better, al fresco dining on the beach and the views of stunning coastlines all around. I was so thrilled last summer when lovely destination wedding photographer Hannah Duffy asked if I’d like to send a little of my calligraphy to Ibiza in her suitcase. Of course I said yes…

This is the dreamiest shoot, with incredible light and the inescapable romance of a beach elopement. The bouquet is simple and pristine: hydrangeas in beautiful white catch the sunlight as our beautiful bride and groom gaze out to sea. With a stunning Truvelle gown and light suit for the warmest of summer weddings, our bride and groom are perfectly at home here; as newlyweds they celebrate at a tablescape of prettily coloured glassware and light, illustrated calligraphy table stationery.

Hey lovelies! How is all of your wedding planning going? Have you discovered Pinterest yet? One of my New Year resolutions was to pin more… I’m not sure I’m keeping up with my ambitions but I do so love Pinterest when I find time to visit – come & follow the English Wedding Blog’s boards here. And do, if you have a sec, pin some ideas from today’s fabulously creative wedding!! Nikki and Dan’s wedding is fab for its stationery which runs through the day and makes a real feature. I love the chalkboard table names, table plan and menus – the stationery (from Norma & Dorothy) ties the whole day together in such a lovely way!

Nikki and Dan were both buzzing with excitement- you could just see it radiating from Nikki. She truly was the definition of a beaming bride, I’m not sure I can find a moment that we photographed when she wasn’t giggling and smiling. Their friends and family were equally happy, it was a pleasure to be part of such a fun and romantic day.

Greenery is where it’s at for 2017 weddings. Foliage and textures for a wonderfully organic look make my heart sing. So Phoebe and Wayne’s DIY wedding is perfect to share on the English Wedding Blog, with all its greenery and homemade touches. This gorgeous couple’s day is full of ideas so I am thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

We chose our venue because of its gorgeous setting in the heart of the south downs. We kept the styling very simple, keeping the focus on the lovely surroundings. We hung white lanterns but not much else. Everything that we could have made ourselves, we did. My husband even made our cake table from an old cable reel. I definitely enjoyed it, I hope he did!

We look back at our day and are so proud of what we created and couldn’t imagine feeling as much pride and satisfaction if we hadn’t done so much of it ourselves.

Gorgeous bride Natalie and her husband Raja were married in the Houses of Parliament in June, their reception was in the gardens of the historic and very romantic Chiswick House. This is a very stylish city wedding that had big wows. Natalie walked down the aisle to the chimes of Big Ben turning 12pm, totally magical. They beat the usual bus tours and had all the guests hop on a boat which went down the River Thames past all the big sights of London then on to the reception.

I tried on several dresses and doubted ever experiencing the feeling of finding the ‘one’. Claire Pettibone‘s Viola was a unique and beautiful design which I hadn’t seen anywhere else before. As soon as I tried it on, I knew it was perfect and though I had other appointments booked, no other dresses compared.

My flowers were provided by Wild about Flowers. My bouquet was made up of burgundy dendrobiums, burgundy peonies and magnolia spray roses. The bridesmaids all had a beautiful simple bouquet of cream peonies and the two flower girls carried flower wands.

Beautifully lit, enchanting summer wedding with Dale Stephens Photography (26)

Toby and Sarah’s wedding is wonderful. Their ceremony took place in one of the most beautifully lit rooms I’ve ever seen – the Oxford Oratory. Seeing their day really makes me think about the importance of wedding vows, of promising your love to one another for eternity – and so I’ve included many more of the fabulous ceremony shots than I usually would in a blog feature.

The elegance and style of today’s wedding is spectacular. Sarah is stunning… so is Toby! The images of their day are out of this world and I hope you will enjoy browsing through them as much as I have. The romance of a historic city like Oxford is just wonderful, and walking through the streets, hand in hand as newlyweds must have been amazing.

Bryony and Josh are pretty much the sweetest couple ever. Their summer wedding at Brunel Manor is styled with a delicate pastel touch – I adore the table plan and cake decoration, and Oh, those flowers…

The beautiful bride wears a gorgeous dress and veil from The White Boutique. Teamed with a breathtaking bouquet of roses, lavender, freesias, delphiniums and eucalyptus, it looks wonderful.

The home made table plan in pastel lemon with pretty floral pegs caught my eye: I love how they’ve been creative with colours to make a really eye-catching table plan – this is gorgeous and will be making its way to my Pinterest as soon as I find my iPad this evening! There are so many pretty little details to this day, I know you will love it.

For those of you who love peonies… today’s wedding is wonderfully pretty, romantic and set in the most deliciously landscaped venue. Elizabeth is beautiful – she told me the best thing about being married to Simon is “knowing that day in and day out you will be able to walk with your best friend and share special moments and make memories together.” Isn’t that just so romantic?

Gorgeous pink peonies and fabulous sunshine for a Caswell House wedding (15)

We chose specifically to have this venue as it did not need much decoration.  We only had chair sashes, strands of fairy lights in the main barn from Oakwood Events and goldfish bowls with floating peonies.

One of the themes I loved most in 2016 was colour palettes. Brides and grooms have been choosing the most wonderful colour combinations – tonal palettes and contrasting shades and textures to bring their wedding style to life. It’s a creative thing – and I’m all about the creativity! So my third wedding of the year is a perfect example. Beautiful bride Laura and her gorgeous groom James used pink and gold to create a magical, romantic and perfectly on-trend wedding at Cubley Hall in Yorkshire. I hope you adore their day as much as I do!

Welcome back to the English Wedding Blog! If you were here yesterday you’ll have seen the first of our weddings of the year – Jess and Rich’s fabulously colourful vintage wedding in London. Today we’re in Cornwall for a beautifully whimsical, DIY-filled country wedding which I know you’ll love.

“We didn’t really have a theme, everything was very ‘us’. I suppose, understated, elegant, natural, romantic. We made a lot of elements ourselves, we love that sort of thing. We made our wooden signs and painted them ourselves, including the menu and table plan which were made from wooden pallets, and the Bride and Groom signs on the backs of our chairs.

Try not to get overwhelmed by the amount that’s on offer to buy or hire for your big day. It’s not about how much decor you have or having things because you’ve seen them on Pinterest and you feel they are compulsory, it’s about your friends and family being together to celebrate your love. Will and I saved so much by spending time on making our decor, thoroughly enjoyed it along the way, and felt so proud on the day because it was all a result of our partnership.

I do love how weddings give the perfect opportunity to glamour things up to the max. Today’s celebration is beautiful and then some. A statement bouquet, a gorgeous bride in the most fabulous dress, and such a stunning venue! Every detail is just wonderful… I do hope you love this as much as I do!

Glamorous Gatsby wedding from Prestwold Hall on the English Wedding Blog (18)

Our theme came from my love of the Great Gatsby, I’ve watched the film and read the book a million times. The whole day from the invitations to the decorations and dress were inspired by the 1920’s era, featuring quotes from the book and patterns from the art deco period. With me being a designer for a living it was really easy to translate the designs from the invitations across to the rest of the theme for the wedding.

Wow!!! Today’s is a wedding which will grab your attention instantly! I absolutely loved the daytime portraits of Alice and James, and then the evening light transformed this day into something incredibly, unbelievably beautiful.

We got married and had the reception at The Old Hall in Ely just outside of Cambridge. It’s a beautiful venue and we got married in their gazebo overlooking a lake and Ely cathedral.

The loveliest golden hour bridal portraits you'll see - by Nicola Casey Photography (24)

The venue and scenery were so beautiful we didn’t need to worry about decorations too much as it was so beautiful itself. Our photographer Nicola Casey Photography did a great job capturing the surroundings in the photos, the fields ready for harvest, the tall reeds by the lakes, and our reflection across the water with the moody clouds above us.
