Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m surrounded by calligraphy pens and inks today as I get ready for another modern calligraphy class on Friday – but I just had to take a little breather and dive into some wedding loveliness with you this lunchtime. Now I very often talk about English Wedding as a joint effort: it’s not just me here, it’s all of the fabulous creatives whose photos and products you see on these pages that make up English Wedding. And today I’m introducing one of those lovely humans whose gorgeous images make English-Wedding.com such a beautiful place to be.

Surrey wedding photographer Jessica Grace Photography has joined us this autumn and I’m excited to be following her stunning social media and sharing a little more about her on English Wedding. Jesse’s style is beautiful – documentary with a dash of creativity and a real talent for capturing special moments for you to cherish. Grab a cuppa, find somewhere cosy to settle and enjoy the glorious photos you’re about to see – and I’ll hand over to lovely Jesse to introduce herself!

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend?

After something of a lazy weekend spent relaxing with family, I’m hitting the ground running with a stunning, knock your socks off kinda wedding today. The florals take centre stage – as they tend to, if you’re lucky enough to be able to celebrate your wedding in your own garden. Nick and Amanda did just that – they put all the flowers together for the tables, made their own invitations and wedding favours and even a balloon arch! Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding Directory member Siobhan H Photography.

I love the relaxed feel of this wedding – the wooden tables and pretty styling go a long way – the trees dotted around the wedding breakfast tables look fabulous!

Amanda is beautiful in a simple lace dress with navy belt and shoes – an outfit perfect for dancing the night away! And Nick’s look fits perfectly with the relaxed vibe of their wedding day: his navy suit compliments Amanda’s style for the ceremony, and for the rest of the day he rocks a neutral waistcoat – these two lovely people just look so good together!

Happy Tuesday lovelies! I’m blogging from my patio this morning… it’s not often we have glorious sunshine in the Lakes while the rest of the country is gloomy, so no apologies for making the most of it while it lasts! But I do have something to brighten your day and bring a little summer to your screens…

Judith and Mat’s wedding is wonderful for the flowers, for the glowing smiles on the faces of the beautiful bride and groom, and for bringing Millbridge Court back to the English Wedding Blog! It’s been two years since we featured a wedding from this fabulous Surrey venue, but I hope we’ll see many more in the years to come! It’s a blank canvas venue, with high ceilings and white walls… perfect for decorating with bright, vibrant touches as Judith and Mat did.

Beautiful bride Hana married Alex at Gate Street Barn on the scorching bank holiday last August. Despite the drama of a street fair trying to stop the bride’s car getting to the church (something that could only happen in the Surrey countryside!) the day was filled with so many laughs and so much love. With a gorgeous summer evening sunset, and the bride and groom recreating the iconic Dirty Dancing routine as their first dance, it is safe to day that they had the time of their lives!

Alex went to secondary school with Jesse and saw that she had become a photographer on Facebook, so i went on her website to have a look and was blown away at how amazing and natural her photography was.

Jen and Joe had such a beautiful, summery wedding at Loseley Park with pretty florals and the most amazing backless lace dress. The look of their day was very English country wedding, and worked beautifully to create a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Family and friends decorated the venue, and Jen’s mum made all the macaroons herself – they look fab.

Images are by lovely Verity Quirk Photography, who gets a great review from our gorgeous bride and groom. Verity told me Jenny and Joe are huge G&T fans: “Their friends and family say they go together just as well at Gin & Tonic does, so at the end of their ceremony they both made a G&T together and shared it while leaving the ceremony! I LOVED that.

“Jenny being a huge feminist made it very clear from the beginning she wasn’t going to let just the men do the talking so just before entering the reception barn Jenny made a fab speech to all the guests on the lawn whist sipping some bubbles. Her bridemaids also made speeches before the men! It was a gorgeous day full of friends, family and stunning flowers and backdrops and a day I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.”

Happy Sunday lovelies! I hope you’re looking forward to a relaxing day – but before you head out anywhere, I have one of the loveliest summer weddings to inspire you today! Jess & Jon’s wedding took place at a pretty Surrey church with a reception at the beautiful Ewshot Hall in Farnham. It was an elegant but relaxed country house wedding with a beautiful colour palette of soft muted greys, whites and pinks.

Gill Pike was my florist. She is amazing. I gave her my themes and colours and let her work her magic with very little input. The flower arch looked stunning.

Gemma from Harper’s Events was in charge of decorating the venue. All of the guests commented on how elegant it looked, we loved the big illuminating letters.
We also had Victoria from Extremely Lovely Weddings decorate the venue. She was so creative and had beautiful fake trees which made such a difference to the look of the room. Victoria also provided extra bits such as a DIY photobooth , basket of flip flops and a basket of blankets for outside. We would highly recommend these suppliers to anyone getting married.

The details of the day are breathtaking. The peonies in those fabulous bouquets look good enough to eat! The hydrangea / delphinium / English country garden table arrangements are so, so pretty – perfect for an early summer wedding. And I LOVE the naked chocolate strawberry cake… it looks lush!

It feels a little like summer… and it’s all because of these flowers gracing my screen this morning. I’m bowled over, totally in love with this day and our fabulous bride and groom on the blog this morning. Kate is gorgeous – her bouquet is out of this world and I adore the colours… I also spotted their super lovely table plan, and the portraits of the happy couple are beautifully done.

I LOVE the lavender theme – Kate told me a little more, namely that they wanted to keep things simple: “We did a little decoration, we used Reveries for our venue décor, we just wanted something very classy but low key. Wedding favours were homemade, little bags of lavender for the ladies and little bags of mints for the men.” But oh, it looks so magical!

What can I say about these lovely two?… they’re gorgeous. Their wedding is just as gorgeous. The spirit of their day is fun and full of character – and there are so many fabulous little touches I know will inspire you. Chloe & James – we love your wedding!

We had a cake made by James’s mum and all the flowers were also handmade from sugar paste. My sister made the confetti from dried rose petals and we used the handmade bunting she had for her wedding 4 years earlier. My mum made the place scrolls and handwrote each guests name and menu choices. My parents also made the table plan display from old book covers. It really made it such a special day having people contribute.

Gemma’s dress is so lovely – the shoulder details are fabulously pretty and her updo goes beautifully with the dress. And oh, the bouquet…. truly, this is a wedding from heaven!

Millbridge Court is a boutique hotel and wedding barn in the Surrey countryside. The barn is beautiful: with delicious light drifting from the skylights and those wonderful beams, hooks and shelves for you to hang flowers or any decorations from – it’s a pretty, perfect space for a wedding.
