Rachel and Jonathan’s wedding photos are guaranteed to make you smile! They’ll also give you plenty of ideas for styling your own day. I loved this wedding as soon as I saw it and I was so pleased Pixies in the Cellar submitted the images for an English Wedding Blog feature. I know you’ll love it too!

Wentbridge House wedding blog (1)For a Yorkshire wedding, there are certainly many more kilts than I’d usually expect… but I’m certainly not complaining! Everything about the day – kilts included – looks fantastic. Rachel’s look is adorable (she wears a Justin Alexander dress with pearl accessories) and the flowers are just gorgeous!

My lovely friends Peter and Sara from Pixies in the Cellar wedding photography get a glowing review in the wedding report at the end of the feature, which makes me very happy! I’ll leave you in their very capable hands with the gorgeous images from this fabulous Wentbridge House wedding. Enjoy!

Oooh where to start?! Michelle and Marc are a cool couple whose vintage chic wedding with a modern twist has some fabulous details – stunning rustic country flowers, tweed and bow ties for the boys, a 1950’s styled bridal dress, with cornflower blue bridesmaids… oh it’s beautiful and there’s so much to tell! They married at Peover Golf Club in Cheshire, on the hottest day of last year – and their wedding photos tell such a magical story.

The beautiful bride and gorgeous groom chose Pixies in the Cellar to photograph their wedding. Peter and Sara – aka the Pixies! – told me, “We really enjoyed the whole day, Meesh and Marc had thought of everything for the day to run smoothly and for it to be very personal to them. What really shines through in the pictures is how much fun everyone had, it way just a great group of family and friends enjoying a great day with some very very summery weather!

Hey lovelies! Friday at last and I’m smiling for lots of reasons this morning! 1 – I get to see my gorgeous boyfriend in a few hours’ time yay! 2 – it’s going to be March tomorrow and that means spring! and 3 – I’ve got a beautiful sunny wedding to share with you all today, thanks to gorgeous bride and groom Amy and Matt, and to Dorset wedding photographer Howard Lucas.

 

Dorset wedding blog by Howard Lucas Photography (29)I’ve never seen a wedding with a steam train before… but I’d love to see more! The bride and groom, and all of the wedding guests, travelled by train from the church to the reception. I love it – what a charming way to make your wedding one to remember! Oh but there’s also Amy’s divine wedding dress, the bright and charming bouquet, and the countryside charm of the village hall wedding venue with bright paper lanterns… you will LOVE this! Enjoy.

Morning beautiful 🙂 How are you today? I have another gorgeous wedding to share with you today, this time from the Dorset countryside and an adorable-looking wedding venue called Kingston Country Courtyard. If you’re having a barn wedding you will love this! Kingston has an 18th century stone barn with a bar attached… it sounds pretty perfect and looks amazing!

Rebecca is gorgeous in a silhouette lace wedding dress by La Sposa, and Andy looks great in a navy suit from Austin Reed. Oh, and the bridesmaids are as lovely as they are smiley… three ridiculously pretty girls in the lightest sage green dresses.

I hope you’ll get lots of ideas from today’s real wedding with rustic flowers, handmade bunting, a DIY Dad’s amazing cake stand and a delicious-looking naked cake with strawberries… you will LOVE this! Thanks to lovely Dorset wedding photographer Paul Underhill for sharing images of the day, and to the gorgeous bride and groom for such a fab wedding report. Everyone – enjoy!

Oh dear!!! There are so many gorgeous things to show you in today’s real English wedding I think I might break my own blog. Oops! But Becky and Greg had the loveliest day with such wonderful personal touches I just have to show you everything! From the polka dot table plan to the quirky ice cream seller, the chalkboard sign, Becky’s own designer wedding cake, the union jack details and luscious hydrangeas everywhere… I can almost smell the summer breeze!

English barn wedding Sophie Duckworth Photographer (16)

Becky looks stunning in her Sassi Holford wedding dress, which she bought second-hand. She told me the dress was advertised online, “and I just fell in love with it instantly.  It would be a shame for such a beautiful dress to only be worn once and I am so glad that the dress could continue its journey.” What a great way to find a wedding dress! And what an awesome bride – Becky, you rock!

Today’s real bride Melanie has one of those smiles which light up a room – she’s such a stunning bride and the images from her Norfolk wedding to James are wonderful.

Norfolk wedding photography by Rob Dodsworth (1)

I adore a seaside wedding – Melanie’s top tip for other couples is to “Enjoy every second – it’s over in a flash!  Do something special away from the crowd – Rob, our photographer, took Jim and I down to the beach and it was lovely to have some alone time with Jim!  I really remember that being special.” It most certainly looks like a magical and romantic moment when you see the images!

With thanks to today’s gorgeous real bride and groom Melanie and James. Their wedding report is at the end of today’s feature and includes a handy supplier list for other Norfolk brides and grooms – so do check it out! Thanks also to wedding photographer Rob Dodsworth for sharing his images of their beautiful day. Everyone – enjoy!

Anyone looking forward to a sunny, bright, warm summer wedding? This is how magical it can be… William and Samantha were lucky enough to get a gorgeous sunny July day for their wedding, and the photos make it look so magical. Their Northamptonshire country wedding was in “a quaint oldy worldy Northamptonshire village” with a marquee reception in Samantha’s parents’ country garden.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer?

My parents met the lovely Chantal on a visit to Scotland! They were so impressed with her helpful manner that they asked if she would travel to Northamptonshire 5 1/2 hours away. Every phone conversation and email I had with her leading up to the wedding was a delight! She was so helpful especially starting a Pinterest board so we could get to know each other’s styles! On the day Chantal and her husband Scott were amazing and calm, they let us have enough time to do all that you have to without causing time away from our guests. I was even taken aback when Scott made it his duty to ensure I had a glass of champagne in my hand when everyone was trying to grab me for a chat.

Hello everyone, I hope you’re having the most wonderful Christmas! Let’s relax together with a short wedding film this morning, shall we? The very lovely Richard from White Dress Films got in touch to share Sarah and Rick’s wedding film, and I love it!

Sarah + Rick || Gaynes Park from White Dress Films on Vimeo.

I love the Mr & Mrs signs – the library as a backdrop for the wedding dress is amazing! This couple have great style… proven by the rows of Converse set out before the wedding begins. They’re for the groomsmen, and are always lovely to see!

Sarah looks amazing and Rick is her perfect match. This is a magical, emotional wedding with inspiring styling – it has everything. Be inspired by their style – ice cream cones and bunting, colourful converse, pink roses and wildflowers in jars on tables. The table plan with hand cut letters, and the photo wall with ready-made quotes. The end of the wedding film is lovely, the romantic lighting just makes you want to see more! By White Dress Films

Hello everyone, and welcome to my last real wedding before Christmas – I’ve been saving today’s wedding for a special day as it’s just so beautiful, and I think the romance of an English country wedding is a perfect note to end with in the run up to Christmas day.

The bride and groom: Andrew and Philippa

Wedding venue:

Mandarin Oriental, Knightsbridge, London. A countryside wedding was our original plan, however this was proving difficult because at the time we had 200 guests to invite.  We didn’t want to go to a beautiful countryside manor and have to use a marquee – what’s the point of going to a stunning location to be put in a marquee and have to spend thousands dressing it?  So we decided that interior was key and the Mandarin Oriental was the perfect answer.  We had the best of both worlds, a beautiful ballroom with Hyde Park literally on your door step.

Morning! I’m typing delicately this morning with a little plaster on my finger – I have an actual blogging injury from too much typing hehe!! But it won’t stop me bringing you today’s beautiful Northamptonshire wedding courtesy of another very beautiful bride, the lovely Kirsty and her gorgeous groom Matt. Their wedding at Pipewell Hall is full of ideas, lovingly crafted and as Kirsty herself will tell you, a dream wedding brought to life!

Today’s beautiful bride Sophie has given me some of the best quotes to use on the blog – and this is an all time favourite. The best thing about being married?The feeling of completeness, being absolute in the knowledge that you love one another unconditionally and that you are fully committed towards each other regardless of what life may throw at you.

English country vintage wedding by Paul J Andrews Photography (1)

Wonderful words and a heart-warming perspective – today’s wedding just happens to be deliciously pretty as well as meltingly romantic. I know you’ll love it as much as I do. This is a fabulous English country vintage wedding with oodles of inspiration and DIY ideas. Shilstone House even tried to buy Sophie’s handmade bunting after the big day… but the happy couple are keeping it for other family occasions (and what a lovely memory to have!) – that’s how lovely they made their day look!
