Something to brighten your day, my lovely wedding blog friends… beautiful summer wildflower bouquets and the most adorable troupe of flower girls you’re ever likely to see. Sam and Anna’s wonderful Yorkshire wedding will go down as one of my favourites of all time. Their day is full of fun and laughter, love and happiness, and every image tells a story of its very own. Some have made me grin, others give a warm glow…

Real wedding at Hazlewood Castle in Yorkshire with Ian Wallace Photography (46)

Anna is an incredibly beautiful bride. Her smile is infectious: with Sam at her side they make a gorgeous couple. I love the portraits Ian captured of them both around Hazlewood Castle: it’s a venue with knockout looks and some amazing photographic locations. It’s also steeped in a history of kings, knights and historical tales – and I love the romance of adding your own story to the centuries gone before at such a fascinating venue.

Hey lovely! I hope you’re having a great day. I’m currently in foils, going (hopefully) from a rootsy blue to a summery blonde again… and I’m celebrating the arrival of new friends to the English Wedding Blog: the fabulous York Place Studios.

I love the life in these guys’ images: the way they can make me grin, bring a lump to my throat and take my breath away with their beauty all in a matter of seconds as I scroll through a wedding. This is what documentary wedding photographers do so amazingly well – and York Place Studios are among the very best.

Weddings are the most wonderful of days; a tapestry of moments is woven together from the smiles, laughter and love of friends and family – and this is true no matter where you choose to marry. Rob and Michele chose a London city centre location for their day. They walked to the venue together (I’d love to see more couples doing this… I LOVE that nervous excitement can be shared!) and from that moment onwards the day is blissfully happy.

Words & images by Arusha’s Images Photography

I loved photographing this city wedding in London: I always enjoy photographing the life, colours, grandeur and contrast of a city wedding. This wedding was so packed full of memorable moments, I loved that the grooms decided to walk to their venue together through the back streets of London to Westminster. It also allowed me to photograph their walk from a distance, as they shared some fun and intimate moments with the city as a backdrop.

Nadia and Andreas’s wedding is pretty darn special… she’s so amazingly pretty, and they really do look so joyful and content in each other’s arms. Today’s wedding is a treat: beautiful images which capture the atmosphere of a very special day. There are some amazing shots: Nadia’s dress looks divine in every photo, and I love the image of Andreas before the ceremony – no nerves, just pure happiness. Fantastic.

“Nadia was a stunning Bride – so photogenic, and wore her Caroline Castigliano dress so well. It was the first time I’d been part of a multi-faith ceremony – both Muslim and Christian – which made it feel very special. Plus I managed to get my favourite picture of a bride arriving for her ceremony!

Woodland wedding invitation by Ohhh So Darling

I’m a fan of all things different, of little pieces of loveliness with personality, charm and their own enchanting style. Boho weddings are wonderful – individuality and relaxed, rustic style is right up my street! My dream wedding would be woodlandy or beachy with fun instead of frills… and the stationery would be boho, illustrated, and oh-so-slightly quirky. If you’re like me then you’ll love this little curation of boho wedding invitations. See where to buy in the listings below. You’re welcome!Claire

Today: wise advice from Nana that paid off beautifully; an unexpectedly amaaaaaazing wedding dress, and the cutest, happiest couple ever. Monique and Adam are gorgeous. I love their style, the way they go together like peas in a pod… and oh, the blossom cheers my heart this morning!

I had so much fun at Monique and Adam’s wedding; it was just so relaxed and happy from start to finish. I had met up with them both in York for their engagement shoot the week before so I already knew that they were going to be naturals in front of the camera on the day – despite Adam being less than keen on having his photo taken! The weather forecast wasn’t great but it ended up being dry all afternoon and we were able to make the most of the little orchard at the back of the hotel for some lovely portraits. Monique was such a beautiful bride, and has the most infectious smile! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming it was one of those wonderful weddings that didn’t feel like work at all!” ~ Laura Calderwood Photography

Rolling hills, beautiful gardens… fabulous wisteria blooms in spring and a gorgeous arbour for outdoor weddings: Surrey and Kent couples will LOVE Oaks Farm.

This is more than a barn, more than a countryside venue. Oaks Farm has its very own charm, and a lovely choice of locations for your ceremony and reception. The summer house is so pretty; the barn and orangery are perfect for indoor ceremonies, the gardens are beautifully looked after and stunning all year round.

This is a little sneak peek into my other life: when I’m not typing I have an old-fashioned pen in my hand… an ink pot, blots on my face, like in the 19th century. I’m not a monk: I’m a calligrapher. I write wedding place names, address envelopes, calligraphy wedding readings and vows as keepsakes and wedding day gifts, and design bespoke wedding stationery for intimate weddings.

Wedding calligraphy in pale grey handwritten by Claire Gould photo by Susan Arnold (14)

One of my favourite styles for calligraphy suites and wedding stationery this year is pale grey, graceful lettering with a hint of days gone by. I love to write in the style of an old love letter: casual, flowing scripts with elegance and old English charm.

This is a look you can easily incorporate into your wedding – and calligraphy is the perfect finishing touch. I designed and lettered an invitation suite on the palest grey stationery: a beautiful dove grey with ink a shade or two lighter to give the perfect contrast and create a soft look.

Huge thanks to lovely Natasha from Pumpkin & Pye for sharing her gorgeous boutonnière design with us – I adore the flowers, which go perfectly with the stunning rose and serenity bouquet project we featured a few weeks back. Natasha used gorgeous silk flowers from Afloral.com. The boutonnière is just the most adorable creation and looks so much fun to make. I hope you love it as much as I do!

You will need:

Select smaller flower heads, sprigs of foliage and any berries or small succulents you would like to use.

The wedding industry is a creative place – full of independent businesses, designers, photographers who inspire me every single day. I love seeing new ideas for wedding styling in the styled shoots we feature here on the English Wedding Blog – but it’s something new for a photographer to reinvent the styled shoot itself… this is such an excellent idea!

Jennifer said “Suppliers have taken the time and expense to showcase their products at the wedding fayre so what an amazing opportunity to use those products at the wedding fayre and combine with a styled shoot.  Gemma and I tried this concept at the recent Little Star Events Vintage Wedding Fayre at Alton House and it worked brilliantly!”
