Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had the loveliest weekends… and for anyone who’s not in a work mood right now I have a really charming DIY wedding to share with you. Matt and Steph were married at The Ashes in Staffordshire and poured their hearts into creating a pretty day full of little details and DIY touches.

Steph’s Mum was a star, crafting so many of the tiny details of the day. Steph told me, “We went a little mad on the decor and had loads of flowers, vases, candles and ornaments but it all worked out and looked beautiful!”

I love the playfully elegant style of their day: the wonderful flowers and pretty styling touches make this Nonsuch Mansion wedding a favourite for me. Luke is such a handsome groom and Katy is so incredibly beautiful, isn’t she?

Danielle and Chris’s wedding is beautiful: very much a quintessentially English celebration with handmade touches and the loveliest flowers you can imagine.

The gorgeous couple married at a local church in Warwickshire and had a reception in a marquee near the bride’s family home. I just love the little details, and how lucky were they to have such wonderful weather?!

Danielle is absolutely stunning: she’s such a pretty bride and I love how her eyes light up when she looks at Chris. They make such a wonderful couple. Danielle’s English Wedding Blog interview (scroll down!) is fantastic, and I wanted to share a snippet right from the start: “Don’t stress: what will be will be! Remember it is meant to be a happy day – you are marrying your love.”

Today is a bit of a treat for me, and for you too I hope! I have a wonderfully chic London wedding to show you, with a Caroline Castigliano designer dress, images by the amazing Blake Ezra Photography and one of my favourite London venues: the ICA.

Michelle is the most beautifully elegant bride, fabulous in her beautifully designed dress from Les Trois Soeurs London boutique. Her flowers were very simple red roses, matching Matthew’s buttonhole on his elegant Mr. Start suit. They’re the most amazing couple… I’m thrilled to be sharing their day with you!

The images are out of this world. Wedding photographer Blake Ezra is one of the best – his intuitive approach and understanding of weddings is second to none; his images have an indefinable magic to them… as Michelle and Matthew told me in their blog interview (at the end of the feature) they capture the day perfectly.

I love this advice from beautiful Shani: “You do not need to spend huge amounts of money to have a lovely wedding. Simplicity is often the best route.” This is oh so true – and the proof is in the wonderful images of Shani and Tim’s gorgeous homemade Kent wedding which I’m proud to feature on the English Wedding Blog today.

Everything here is homemade with love and shows just what you can achieve if you really enjoy being crafty and making things – as Shani so clearly does. There’s more though – and green fingered brides should take note: the flowers are divine and all home grown. Shani is a talented florist and what I love most of all is that today’s fabulous couple planted and grew over 300 plants from seed for their wedding day. Wow.

From the glorious venue to the comfy, cool footwear and dress-changing bridesmaids, this is a wedding whose quirks are subtle and fun. Ally and Sarah had a relaxed day at Menzies Welcombe Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon and I know you’ll love hearing about their wedding.

There wasn’t a theme for the day, but what stands out to me is that this is a no-fuss, no-fluff sort of wedding. It’s elegant and personal with a focus on just a few pretty key details: the flowers, the location, and our gorgeous bride and groom.

I love today’s wedding for it’s classy sense of difference: there’s nothing normal or ordinary about Kate and Steve’s London wedding, and yet it’s as elegant as any wedding, ever, without trying to be quirky… the mark of a couple whose style and grace makes everything just fall into place beautifully.

An alternative London wedding at J & A Cafe with images by Colin Clay Photography (14)

Kate – today’s timelessly graceful and beautiful bride – and her husband Steve have been together for years and their wedding focused on friends and family. They still forget they’re married… and yet this wedding in its uniqueness will stick in my mind for a long time. I love to see a day which is different.

An alternative London wedding at J & A Cafe with images by Colin Clay Photography (11)

One of my favourite things about today is Kate’s interview (at the end of the feature). Very often brides write LOTS about their dress, and add a very brief note about the groom’s attire or bridesmaids / flower girls. Kate though… and I LOVE this… gives a resounding ‘nah…’ + one line to my question about her dress (which is stunning!) but writes 3 LINES about her adorable son (Batman bowtie – awesome!!) and daughter (sparkly shoes – awww!!).

As a little girl I used to try and make my own dried flower bouquets… so I was delighted to see Paula’s bouquet from today’s wonderfully country wedding: it really is beautifully different. In fact today’s wedding is one of those I love for every little detail which comes together to make a creative, exciting and unique overall style for a magical day.

Sean and Paula chose their wedding venue for its windmill. Paula’s dress was chosen at the very last minute… and wow, it must have been fate because it’s beautiful!

The rustic stationery and DIY touches are what make today’s wedding look so unique – and the photographs are out of this world – I really struggled to cut the images down to a reasonable number to show you… because between the venue, the gorgeous bride and groom and the fabulous photographer, they make for some of the best wedding photos I’ve seen and shared. A favourite, definitely!

It’s rather lovely to be exploring Oxfordshire’s finest wedding venues on the blog this week, don’t you think?! On Sunday I shared Kelly and Chris’s gorgeous Henley on Thames wedding; today it’s the turn of Hannah and Mark at the fabulous Ardington House. Wow… (Oh! And while I remember, I’m looking for more weddings from Berkshire, Wiltshire, Northamptonshire and surrounding counties so do get in touch if you’ve one to share!)

Hannah and Mark were married outside, and it won’t take more than an image or two for you to see how amazing the surroundings are… this is one of the loveliest outdoor wedding venues I’ve seen.

There’s no shortage of details to inspire you: Hannah’s time making 60 paper poms really paid off: they look gorgeous in the marquee and add a touch of colour to the styling. Hannah’s other craft projects include the card suitcase, table numbers and menus, and table plan.

Hats off to the wonderfully named, beautiful Kelly Kelly for today’s wedding report, which is awesome, full of advice and ends with one of the best comments ever! Kelly married Chris last summer, and I wanted to show you their wedding which is full of inspiration for summer couples. I think you’ll love it!

Of course there’s plenty of sunshine in today’s blog feature, and while it’s suddenly gone back to winter in the real world (I mean seriously – roll on May!!) we could all do with a dose of warm and shiny, right?

Kelly is just gorgeous: I adore her hair and she’s such a fabulous looking bride, with a smile which has had me grinning back at my screen all morning 🙂 She shares some fab tips and advice in today’s wedding report, which follows all the lovely pics. Don’t miss it!

Very early on her wedding day morning Kerrie went for a walk in the countryside around Studland village. This is such a lovely thing to do: she told me it was very relaxing and a really memorable moment of the whole day. I think it’s really romantic and a wonderful way to think ahead to the day which will follow.

I love how the venue was decorated: it was a labour of love with family pitching in the day before, and only the second time a wedding reception had taken place in the hall… but Kerrie and Nick truly made it their own and styled a pretty, welcoming and relaxed celebration which I’m thrilled to be sharing with you today!
