Tess and Tom’s February wedding has so many layers to it: there’s the romance between our gorgeous couple. Then there’s Tess’s Dad’s story (you’ll see what I mean when you start scrolling!), which totally captivated me (and shows just what your wedding day means to the ones you love!) There’s a wonderful camaraderie amongst the beautiful bridesmaids, who shimmer and sparkle through all the photos! And I love how there’s a lovely humour in the day – as Tess puts it, “who doesn’t like a Colin?!”
Good morning lovelies! I have a beautiful and very different idea to share with you this morning: a bridal boudoir photoshoot, which was sent in by English Wedding member Emily Andrew Events. Bridal boudoir photography is a lovely idea, I think: there are many female wedding photographers around who do boudoir photography as a confidence boost (and I’ve seen such wonderful reviews of this experience!). Perhaps you’ll find time on your wedding morning to do this; perhaps it’s something you can arrange before the big day. Either way, I hope you’ll find today’s feature inspiring and Emily’s words thought-provoking. The images by Valentine Studio are wonderfully romantic and feminine.
So you’re about to read our best English Wedding interview ever… along with a gorgeous set of photos from a wedding which absolutely inspires me. These guys are just brilliant: Anna and Ollie’s wedding is perfectly THEM: individual, stylish and relaxed. They had 3 venues throughout the day, taking their party from registry office to foodie heaven to party venue. Venue styling simply wasn’t required: instead the focus was on celebrating their love and entertaining their guests! Likewise, Anna avoided bridal boutiques and found her incredible dress on The Outnet. She looks more than amazing – and blissfully happy, confident and beautiful!

As a destination wedding planner, more and more couples are coming to me to request a wedding weekend experience, here in the UK.
If you have ever attended a destination wedding overseas, you will no doubt have experienced the wonderfully warm and intimate atmosphere created because the couple and their guests get to spend several days together.
From the initial welcome drink on the arrival night, through to the post-wedding brunch or barbecue, the vibe is palpable and it’s something that can prove difficult to re-create for a one day wedding.
Today’s feature captures both timelessness and fresh, modern styling in a dreamy wedding editorial from Natalie Stevenson Photography. The location is St Etheldreda’s church ruins, whose crumbling stonework and beautiful detailing inspired this breathtaking wedding style.
The fashion forward styling with elegant touches and delicate detailing is perfect for a 2020 wedding. The look is romantic; our bride looks graceful and sensual in Polish designer Anna Kara‘s Irvette gown from Morgan Davies Bridal – with distinctive wisps of tulle from the shoulders, lace reminiscent of waves rippling over the beach, and a deep neckline on the back of the gown. Hair is by By Lois and make up by Belles Beauty and accessories from Rachel Sokhal. The groom is dressed for the occasion in a classic tux and black tie.
