Welcome to the first week of December! Are you all black-Fridayed out?! I know I am! Let’s escape for a little while with a stunningly beautiful wedding, informally styled around a rosemary and lavender theme and beautifully captured by Jonny Barratt Photography. Bride Nikki wears a wonderfully sparkling Phase Eight dress, while Gareth’s suit is tailor made by Gieves and Hawkes. They look fabulous, happy and SO in love! I couldn’t think of a better beginning to our week. I hope you love this as much as I do!

“My mum and I are quite crafty, and so there was always going to be an element of home made when it came to table decorations and favours. One of my favourite home made touches was in honour of my Dad who sadly passed away a few years ago. A family tradition that my Dad started, and that we all still do now, is the annual sloe gin production. With that in mind, it felt totally fitting that we have miniature sloe gin favours. My Mum started the process a year in advance so it was all very well steeped by the time the wedding came round! Mum and I sat and bottled it up together, sampling each batch of course! We also included the recipe on the bottle labels too, so that friends could re-produce it if they like it. It took a while for us to realise that it would mean that he was literally there in spirit!

Hey brides, grooms, wedding photographers… can you help fill the pages of English Wedding for 2020? I’m looking for wonderfully wintry weddings and photoshoots – warmth and candles and fairy lights, snow and frosty colour palettes and sparkles. And as always, EVERY style, size, colour and gender of wedding! And I’d love to have your gorgeous photos all over the blog!

The weddings I love to feature are beautifully photographed, with creative ideas and inspiration to share with the brides and grooms reading the blog. Details are a BIG deal – but it’s about the moments too. You’ll win my heart with stunning close up images, the most romantic couple shots, and unique, new creative decor and styling.

‘Tis the season to get Married…

English Wedding member Love Invited has launched a new festive-inspired wedding stationery collection for couples that prefer wintry skies and snow covered churches as their dream wedding day backdrop.

Winter confetti wedding stationery by Love Invited (1)

Capturing the magic of the festive season and the romance of a winter wedding, the beautiful new Winter Confetti collection has a traditional, yet elegant feel.

The background colour can be customised to your colour scheme and wording can be tailored to your day, and the collection can be fully customised to your preferred colour and foil.

Amanda Williams, who owns Love Invited, says “I chose this combination as it perfectly combines tradition with elegance, which is what most of my couples are looking for with a winter wedding.

“I would recommend printing on the soft touch laminate to make the stationery feel like velvet to touch, which adds a further wintry dimension!”

All Love Invited Collection designs have the option of free colour changes, and a choice of foil from rose gold, silver and gold.

As a nature lover, I am charmed by the tranquility that surrounds my home. All seasons passed by over the years but I couldn’t stop falling in love with the romanticism of Autumn. I waited until the end of October for leaves to be turning with shades of golden yellow and orange and to naturally fall, to capture the whole beauty of my collection, in which ‘Autumn’ itself is an inspiration. –  Sanyukta Shrestha

 

The passion behind Sanyukta Shrestha’s bridal collections is clear as a drop of autumn dew: the dresses breathtaking and the ethics a shining star to lead us into a new decade. Sustainability has to be the key promise for EVERY wedding brand going forwards – and Sanyukta Shrestha shows us how stunningly beautiful this ethical future will be.

Good morning lovely! An early post today because I’m off teaching a Christmas calligraphy class in the Lake District (so excited I can’t tell you! We’re doing wrapping paper and baubles!) And so today’s creative wedding photoshoot was just perfect to share with you right now. It’s just so beautiful! The flowers are incredible and I adore Julie Michaelsen’s photography. (I was lucky enough to have Julie send me some photographs of my calligraphy back in 2017 and have been in love with her work ever since!) The look is beautifully styled by Lamp Productions with stunning calligraphy by Judy Broad and the most excitingly creative cake from Nevie-Pie Cakes – see the full supplier list at the end of the feature!

“Set in the heart of the Surrey countryside in England, Millbridge Court is a contemporary, exclusive use wedding and events venue. We decided to choose Millbridge Court for our shoot as we knew we wanted to shoot at a countryside venue. Luckily, Millbridge Court is within easy reach of London and it has a relaxed, refined luxury feel to it. Not only is it such a unique venue with a naturally rural yet contemporary and elegant feel, but it has a stunning interior and is flooded with light all year round.

Choosing the right music for your special day is as important as any other aspect of your ceremony and reception. Not only do you want your favourite music as a couple to characterise this celebration of your new life together, but you also want music that all of your guests, young and old, will enjoy. Music is a highly personal experience – we all associate the songs we hear with different things, so you’re going to want to make sure the music you provide helps keep the joy and love your friends and family felt at your wedding alive in their memories.

This may seem like a tall order, especially if you’re new to event planning – after all, there are so many options vying for your attention all the time, so it can be hard to know where to start. Don’t worry – help is at hand! In this article, we’ll break down the various stages of your wedding day and suggest which live music acts would be the most effective and the most practical for these special moments.

Good morning lovely! Are you feeling the nip in the air today? I have been looking forward to sharing this pretty winter wedding with you all – a November celebration which makes the most of pretty, sparkly fairy lights and has a warming, romantic vibe to the day. Gorgeous bride Hannah wears a shimmery, lace dress from Yours Truly in Maidstone, and the images of the day are captured by our friend and Kent wedding photographer Terence Joseph Photography – who gets a wonderful review from the happy couple!

Hannah and Tom told me their wedding style was centred around the fact it was more of a winter wedding – the wood fire, fairy lights and candles all added to the effect. Their venue was The Plough at Leigh, and they found suppliers via recommendations from family, from internet research and reading reviews, and from the venue’s open day.

This is a guest article from our friends at Entertainment Nation

At Entertainment Nation we help arrange the music for thousands of weddings each year, so it’s crucial for us and our clients that we keep up to date on what’s most popular and what works best at a wedding reception.

In our experience, most couples want to be sure of two things from their evening entertainment: reliability and the ability to get the dance floor heaving. At Entertainment Nation, we only work with top quality professional bands who we trust to give an exceptional performance every time. This frees you up to focus on the style of music you want for your reception instead of worrying whether the band will turn up!

Read on to find out more about the top styles of wedding band to supply the soundtrack to your big night.
