Welcome to Monday, lovely people! I hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend. I have some wonderful wedding features lined up for you this week: today we begin with a gloriously spring-inspired Wiltshire wedding. Then we’re sharing a couple of breathtaking editorial shoots to inspire your wedding style: a rustic look and a classic English Rose wedding style photoshoot. Thursday and Friday are all about the real weddings once again (and you will LOVE these!) then we’re filing the weekend with ideas for wedding gifts and entertainment. It doesn’t really get much better than this… and today’s wedding sent in by Wiltshire wedding photographer Martin Dabek is just so wonderfully unique and beautiful – I’ve been excited to share all the glorious images with you!

Have you ever wondered how wedding planners and stylists get married? Me too! Today I’m thrilled to say we have all the answers, as lovely Lauren and David are sharing their stunning Wiltshire wedding on the English Wedding blog today. Lauren is the owner of Lauren Alexander Weddings – she’s also an English Wedding reader and has shared some fantastic tips with us in a brilliant interview (which carries on beneath all of the beautiful photographs). Lauren and David describe their day as, “Fun, boozy, eclectic, beautiful, happy, musical and ‘us’.” – which is, for me, everything the perfect wedding could ever need. There are stunning styling touches as well – plenty of DIY ideas and the FUNNEST and most gorgeous wedding shoes! I just know you’ll love this! Over to Lauren… 

Stunning wedding at Larmer Tree Gardens, with Ben Goode Photography on English-Wedding.com (24)

“I used English Wedding a lot for inspiration for our wedding and within my wedding planning and styling business.  Our reception is set in the gorgeous Larmer Tree Gardens, a Victorian pleasure garden, and we got married in a lovely rustic and small village church in Milton on Stour. We used local suppliers to the area as we thought it was so important, but at the same time we also did a fair amount on our own too.”

It was in the colder months of the year that lovely Sam Cook Photography got in touch to share this – a wonderfully warming, authentic and artfully styled shoot from The Lost Orangery, Euridge House in Colerne, north Wiltshire. I fell head over heels for its beauty: the crumbling walls, elegant florals and gentle autumnal hues. See below for the full supplier list!

Our bumper week of real weddings continues with this gorgeous celebration at Larmer Tree Gardens.

I have known of Sheryl’s work for a couple of years as she has shot friends’ bump pics & an acquaintance’s wedding, so as soon as we were engaged I got in touch with her. I honestly didn’t even care about the cost as I just love Sheryl’s style of photography & knew she would make our wedding memories so beautiful!

FRIDAY!!! Lovelies, I have to confess I wrote this yesterday because I’m at A WEDDING!! My lovely sister in law is about to get a HUSBAND – in about two hours time – so I’m all bridesmaided-up and heading to the church as this is published!! There’ll maybe be real life wedding stuff on my Insta later (or possibly real life tipsy stuff, which might be equally entertaining!) so if you’re not already following @englishwedding on Instagram, today’s probably a good day to start!

I wouldn’t leave the blog empty for you though, oh no – and happily I have an absolutely stunning wedding to share with you, submitted by lovely Hannah at Casey Avenue. Laura and Josh were married at The Lost Orangery, a stunning venue tucked away in rural Wiltshire. I love how this place is almost hidden from the mainstream wedding industry – it’s a self-catering, super luxurious, exclusive use wedding venue with a beautiful cloister, archway, portico, boat house, orangery and ballroom to call your own. You’ll find it on www.uniquehomestays.com where it’s described as an “exclusive manor house in Wiltshire is a spectacular wedding venue certain to impress wedding guests by exuding a special blend of grandeur, heart and soul” – which sleeps 4, with room for 250 wedding guests and carriages at midnight!

Happy Friday everyone! Whatever you’re doing, have an amazing day and don’t work too hard! I’ll be blogging, planning some worksheets for my next calligraphy workshop and getting ready for a weekend of exploring and reaching new heights in the Lake District 🙂 First though, I have this beautiful wedding to share with you, submitted by lovely David of Married To My Camera. I will let him introduce beautiful Sarah and Ben and tell you all about their day. Enjoy!

Sarah and Ben’s wedding was at the gorgeous Larmer Tree Gardens in Wiltshire. The couple are actually my neighbours, so no pressure there then! Both families were staying at King John’s House near to Larmer Tree Gardens and this is where both bride and groom got ready in the morning. It was an outdoor ceremony followed by some garden games and speeches outdoors too, before the wedding breakfast. All the 1000 paper cranes were made by Sarah!

Good morning, beautiful. Would you like a little sunshine on your screen this morning? You’re welcome. And I have a whole lot of amazing images of a beautiful bride and groom to share with you too, so grab a cuppa and nestle into a cushion to enjoy Fiona and Mark’s wonderful Wiltshire wedding.

I love that this is a relaxed celebration in every sense: the overall look is colourful and fun, with a rustic country garden twist. Fiona looks amazing in her Jenny Packham dress; Mark is her perfect partner and they just look so incredibly happy together.

Today’s wedding comes from Grittleton House, in Wiltshire. It’s a venue I’ve never featured before and I have fallen in love with the place, inside and out. Emma and Mark styled their elegant English wedding there with art deco touches, and the day was simply fabulous.

I’ll never tire of sharing beautiful summer weddings with you… and Laura and Miles were married on one of those amazing, warm and wonderful days with bright sunshine all day long. This is a wedding which sings of summer to me: a fabulous celebration of love in the English summer – and the photos I’m about to show you will whisk you away to gorgeous summer days…

Miles and Laura were married at the Manor Hotel, Castle Combe. They chose Hampshire wedding photographer Jennifer Sinclair to capture their day:

Laura’s bouquet caught my eye first of all: the anemones and roses are such a fabulous combination for summer flowers – and the colours were wonderful. I love so much about this wedding; its classic elegance, the summery colours and the beautiful bride and gorgeous groom – I simply had to share it with you today!

Trust in your own personal style, and I promise your wedding will come together and look amazing on the day. Laura and Arash did – they chose accessories and decor they liked rather than concentrating on a particular theme for their Bristol wedding, and the result is wonderfully chic, elegant and understated.

This is bliss. A modern wedding with a focus on family and “having a really good party” – oh boy, didn’t they just! Suppliers were found online and through personal recommendations, and money was saved by skipping chair covers and favours on the day.

Laura is gorgeous; Arash is super handsome. Together they’re a knockout couple with the best modern style and the loveliest of outlooks on life! Laura told me they still talk about the wedding and have the best memories. “We just enjoyed having a big celebration with all of our friends and family.”

I love how Annaliese describes her wedding to Steve in a rush of words: “Joyful, relaxed, beautiful, special, homespun, amazing, creative, fun!” And oh, you can tell from the photos it was all of that and more.

I love the funny touches to their day which made me smile so much: the beard basher (not as bad as it sounds!!), the mini chauffeur (so cute) and his car! – Oh, the beautiful bride goes without saying: Annaliese is stunning (and Steve’s a looker too!) but what strikes me most of all is the atmosphere and relaxed, quirky style of their wedding celebrations.
