Do you remember the moment one of you said yes? When suddenly you’d made that first step towards a lifetime together, and your heart was fit to burst with being so much in love? Stepping from being just a couple head over heels in love and enjoying every small adventure together, into planning a wedding can be… daunting. It’s so, so important to keep making amazing memories as you plan your wedding – and I think an engagement shoot is the perfect way to capture some of the romance and excitement of your pre-wedding months.

There are many, many reasons to have a photoshoot before your wedding. It’s a great way to get to know your photographer, relax in front of the camera, perhaps explore your venue  or just have a fun day out.

Billed as Surrey’s premier wedding venue, Northbrook Park is a pretty amazing place – and if your budget allows, then it’s a gorgeous location for a classic English wedding. Northbrook has featured on the English Wedding Blog a handful of times, always taking a back seat as we showcase fabulous real weddings… and so today I thought it was time we explored a little more!

Northbrook Park is a stunning Grade II listed eighteenth-century manor house set within a beautiful country estate. Being a Hampshire and Surrey wedding photographer, this venue is perfect for my brides as sits peacefully on the Surrey and Hampshire border, with extensive grounds and charming walled gardens.” ~ Jennifer Sinclair Photography

My calligraphy went to Northbrook Park before me… lovely Jennifer Sinclair has told me all about this fabulous Surrey wedding venue, and the images I’m sharing with you today are from a styled shoot by Jennifer a few weeks ago. I’ll be sharing more from the masquerade wedding inspiration shoot very soon!

Ben and Nancy’s Devon wedding has some of those breathtaking images you’ll only ever see at country weddings. Their church is fabulous – I’d so love to see it for real!  I adore the landscapes, the bride and groom are gorgeous and Nancy’s bouquet is out of this world. I also spotted some little feather details on the tables, which look wonderful – this is a really gorgeous wedding and I am so excited to share it with you all today.

Anna from Luna Photography told me, “The day was memorable for us because Ben & Nancy were so much fun to work with, and we loved the guests’ reaction to the church! The venues were dreamlike, Brentor Church has always been somewhere we wanted to shoot a wedding, when Nancy initially got in touch we couldn’t have been more excited! Twinned with Coombe Trenchard it was absolutely perfect, you can even see Brentor high on the hill from the gardens at Coombe Trenchard which was perfect. We loved the reception venue as there was so much scope for beautiful venues, and the owner, Sarah, could not have been more accommodating.”

Summer weddings are wonderful: the glorious light and wonderful warmth of those endless days will be back before we know it… and so this morning I would love for you to join me to reminisce over hazy days and summer celebrations.

Rozie and Al’s wedding is the most perfect example of an English summer wedding – I love the styling of their day, the beautiful flowers and stationery, Rozie’s stunning bouquet and dress… oh, and their countryside location is blissful.

“The wedding of Rozie and Al was such a beautiful, happy occasion and the attention to detail that they had put into their day was outstanding. From the pretty bunting that Rozie spent her evenings making in the run up to the wedding, to the flowers, arranged perfectly by Al’s mum, it was a dream to photograph. The couple, their friends and family were all so lovely and the whole day was full of love and happiness.

The ‘average wedding budget’ is a myth. Every wedding is different, and allocating your budget should never come down to a standard formula from a magazine or wedding planning book. Today’s advice from Revelry Events is some of the best I’ve heard: for example, have you allocated a 5% contingency for emergencies? Watch the film to find out why you should!

London wedding planners Susannah and Holly have more great advice: choosing seasonal flowers and foods will save you money, and doubling up your favours as place names, or your church flowers as reception decor will cut back on spending too. My favourite tip has to be asking suppliers for help: be honest, and if you have your heart set on something you can’t quite afford try asking your suppliers for solutions rather than a straight up discount.

Hello lovelies! Don’t you think March is flying by? I need a little luck this morning as it’s time to get my little Vespa’s MOT done… but before I scoot out to the garage, I wanted to say thank you to some of the people who are supporting the English Wedding Blog. Without these guys I genuinely couldn’t write the blog. It wouldn’t exist as it does: we’d have half the number of amazing weddings to share, and nowhere near as many features to show you each week. Sponsors or advertisers are what keep wedding blogs going, and I’m grateful to every one of these lovely people from the very bottom of my heart. I’d love for you to take just a few moments of your morning to consider them for your own wedding day:

Today’s wedding has the most glamorous dress ever, a gorgeous couple and some exquisite details. The reception venue is a highlight: a fabulous party space with tons of character. The cake table is wonderful, the table styling quirky and fun. This is a party spread over several days… and it’s awesome. I think you’re going to love Maddy and Adam’s Cheltenham wedding!

I loved this day. Ever since my first days as a photographer ‘paying her dues’ I have photographed on the steps of Pittville Pump Rooms. Parkfit, fun runs, charity events and Zumba plus numerous family shoots. This park has a special significance to everyone I know in this town.

“All three locations for this wedding felt like home, and the entire day had the atmosphere of being ‘one big happy family’ I love how Maddy and Adam threw tradition to the wind and really did it their way. I am so honoured that they chose me to record their day.”

Modern calligraphy workshops – information & online booking

Time flies when you’re having fun… with some of the gorgeous weddings you’ve been sending in, and my calligraphy orders for summer dates rolling in already, March has been amazing. I can hardly believe it’s a matter of days until my next calligraphy workshop… and so I’d love to fill the last few places for the day. We’re learning brush lettering: the kind of writing you see everywhere, on the loveliest invites and signage and instagrams… and it’s so easy to start. Let me show you!

The calligraphy workshop will start at 1 o’clock, and run for three hours. We’ll be in a lovely little classroom at The Manchester Craft & Design Centre, which is about 10 mins walk from Piccadilly station.

I’ll show you how to use a brush pen to create thick and thin strokes, and to swoop your pen confidently to make lovely looping letter forms. We’ll look at patterns and shapes and layouts and different brush pen alphabets which you can use to make gorgeous wedding stationery for your big day!

Blush and Gold is a boutique wedding and event stationery supplier based in Birmingham and covering the whole of the UK. Lovely Mara got in touch with me to share their favourite designer wedding invitations and introduce Blush and Gold to you!

There are two of us that run this little company and we provide two types of products for our stationery. We have some in-house collections that we add to every month, of which text and colours can be customised, but we also offer a bespoke service which allows couples to see their ideas developed into the finished product of their dreams. Our collections offer an idea of how the design can be applied to ‘on the day’ items as well, although this is just a starting point as we can pretty much produce anything the couple desires.

Girls and guys – if you’re booking a barn for your wedding reception then you’re going to need a little help with the styling… and you’re going to have so much fun planning and decorating the place! Countryside touches, rustic floral arrangements and traditional crafts are some of the things I love most about English barn weddings… and all of the beautiful touches in the images shown here are from Gemma & Joe’s wedding, photographed by lovely Benjamin Mathers Photography.

Barns need lighting, so it’s a great idea to start here. Gemma and Joe strung festoon lighting between the beams, added fairy lights and repurposed a beautiful vintage candelabra – which they found in a bric-a-brac shop – as a centrepiece for their barn wedding.

Hanging flowers on the walls add interest to bare patches – and they’re super easy to do with a little twine or raffia and some nails! Remember to add water unless you’re using dried flowers! 😉

Little gold eggs at every place setting… personal egg cup place names, the most beautiful flowers with pale pink and pastel blooms… it can only be an Easter wedding, and this is the loveliest I’ve ever seen! Today’s wedding blog is an early treat for all of you Easter brides and grooms – you’re going to LOVE this!

Rebecca married Adam last Easter at Elmore Court. Their day is wonderful – they’re such a gorgeous couple and the photos of their wedding are just divine. Even the tiniest details are so carefully curated… “The ‘big’ things such as florist, hair and make up etc came by recommendation but for the smaller things I developed an obsession with wedding magazines, which I loved looking through for inspiration, as well as wedding blogs and there was definitely a lot of pinterest boards being created. I fell in love with Etsy and being able to talk to the suppliers and request personalised items worked really well for us. A lot of our extras came from there.”

I hope you’ve had the loveliest of days, everyone. I’ve had a relaxing Sunday with family and it’s time to look forward to a fabulous week of wedding blog dreaminess ahead! We’ve had the most wonderful start to the year, and many old friends have got back in touch – including lovely Joseph Hall, a Bristol wedding photographer whose style I’ve admired for years – ever since the early days of the English Wedding Blog. I’m over the moon to say Joseph is rejoining as a sponsor so we’ll be sharing some of his favourite weddings with you over the next few months. Let me introduce you…
