Those of you who follow me on my personal instagram will know I’m lucky to live by the beautiful Lake District. My home is one of the most beautiful places in the world and I’d never dream of getting married anywhere else. Andy and Katie’s wedding is literally right up my street – and instantly shoots to the top of my list of weddings of the year. Their day is charming, full of personal touches and still wonderfully down to earth. Oh and Katie is the prettiest bride with such a wonderful smile… you’ll LOVE today’s real wedding.

The colours for the day were kept in line with the Lakeland setting: blues and greens kept the styling consistent, although little decoration was needed. Katie is a keen and talented crafter, and she made 150 metres of bunting to string across the beams of the chapel and reception venue.

Timeless and traditional always works like a charm. When Sophie and Daniel were married this summer they knew their day would be elegant and stylish, with pretty handmade touches and delicate detailing. I love the pretty colour scheme of dusky pinks and pastels, the little knitted dolls and the pretty tissue paper flowers decorating the marquee.

Sophie is breathtakingly gorgeous – a beautiful bride who says the day was “a little girl’s dream come true“. Her review of Hampshire wedding photographer Jennifer Sinclair is fabulous: “Not only is her work amazing she is also a lovely, fun, patient person. Jennifer has become a friend who we will always want to stay in contact with.

Jennifer says, “The sunshine in the evening was amazing and I loved the warm golden light of the evening; perfect for a campsite fire outside the marquee.  As a photographer, I love the photographs taken in between to the afternoon and evening reception; the guests are really relaxed and now having fun. One of my favourite photographs is of the three little girls ready to let the balloons go.

Sunflowers are my favourite… nothing packs a punch quite like a wedding full of glorious sunflowers. Marianne and Sam’s wedding is like summer itself: warming and friendly, bright and cheerful, beautifully floral (of course!) and glorious with colour and sunshine. You’re going to LOVE today’s real wedding feature!

Sam and Marianne married at Pendrell Hall in Staffordshire, a superb venue which needs very little additional decor. Pendrell is one of England’s finest country house wedding venues, and I adore the atmosphere and charm of the house and gardens. Our bride and groom are both stunning: Marianne’s designer dress was made especially for her by the supremely talented Zeynep Kartal, while Sam wore Ted Baker.

Squeeeeeal!!! Today’s wedding is a little bit like living inside a rainbow. There are as many colours as there are surprises, as many glorious details as there are moments and smiles and beautiful memories. I honestly don’t know where to begin!

Summer Fete Berkshire wedding by Benjamin Stuart Photography (55)

Lucy and Dan are the loveliest couple, with their own super sense of style and outfits which reflect their personalities (which are, clearly, awesome!) to a T. Their day is styled for a summer fete, with lots of DIY ideas to inspire you all, and was put together with lots of help from friends and family.

Have you been to the Midland Hotel in Morecambe? It’s fabulous: an art deco hotel on the seafront, lovingly restored and restyled with so much character, and a superb wedding venue. I was there for the very first time only a month or so ago but the hotel has featured on the English Wedding Blog many times…

And so today I’m over the moon to have a fabulous wedding from the Midland Hotel to share with you. The details are classy and understated: flowers are white; stationery is stylish with a dash of art deco, and our brides are absolutely gorgeous!

Amy and Krysta found their suppliers online, at wedding fairs and through recommendations from the venue. They loved their bridal boutique in Preston for the super helpful advice they received – and for being able to choose dresses which worked well together even though they couldn’t see each other’s until the wedding day! Don’t they look amazing?!

Today’s couple are so gorgeous and lovely I could burst with excitement to show you their wedding! Liza and Matt had the prettiest day at Redhouse Barn in Worcestershire – a fabulously light and airy barn with scope for a personal touch which I love! And oh, my goodness did they glam the place up with some super luxe floral arrangements…

Proof, if ever anyone needed any, that barn weddings don’t have to be rustic… today’s wedding is super sophisticated, traditional and full of glamorous detailing: there isn’t a scrap of hessian to be found!

This is a super classy wedding with elegant touches and traditional styling. Liza and Matt are the most gorgeous couple, and have written some fantastic tips for other brides and grooms in their interview at the end of today’s wedding feature. Oh – but take your time looking through all of their glorious images and don’t miss the flowers… Liza’s peony bouquet looks good enough to eat! Enjoy.

If you know a whole bunch of talented people, you’re one of the lucky ones. Georgia and Ross will tell you – being able to ask friends and family to make things for your wedding day, and knowing they’ll be amazing, is just the best thing ever.

Today’s real wedding comes from the Warwickshire countryside where Georgia grew up. The marquee is pitched in a field of the family farm; pretty much every detail is the work of a talented friend or family member. And it’s all gorgeous.

I adore the flowers; they’re real English country garden blooms and must have smelled as delicious as they look. The table plan is prettily homemade and the bunting and paper lanterns add a romantic atmosphere to the reception marquee.

Somehow, the magical atmosphere of a wedding comes through the photographs I’m sent, onto my laptop screen and all the way to my smile… and I fall head over heels for a wedding. Like today. Yasmin and Simon are amazing – they’re gorgeous, fun and creative and their wedding at Old Down Manor is just wonderful.

I like white wedding dresses. I love dresses with a hint of colour. I adore bold, bright wedding dresses… and Indian weddings always blow my mind. Today I have the most amazing sneak peek at Cindy and Jacques’s fabulous Buckinghamshire wedding. The bride is incredible in a beautifully embroidered red wedding dress and I am smitten by all the little details of this stunning couple’s day.

Hey lovely! Today I have a 1920s inspired wedding for you – a gorgeous little dose of glamorous vintage with a beautiful bride and super handsome groom. Rachel and Mike are brilliant – they styled their Chester wedding creatively with suppliers found online. Rachel designed the stationery herself and it’s fabulous.

1920s silent movie wedding by Ragdoll Photography Chester (26)

Rachel’s love of the 1920s era flowed through the wedding day – first there was the dress, and then came the ‘silent movie’ idea. The invitations and place settings were inspired this way, and even the chalkboard style table numbers and bunting came from the silent movie idea.

They had an engagement shoot in February and by the time their wedding came around they said they felt as though they’d known Rosie for ages – which really makes the images of the day look relaxed and fun!
