Hey lovelies! I wanted to finish the week by filling your screens with gorgeous colour, design and general weddingness, and at the same time tell you a few things you might not know (because I didn’t) about the fabulous blooms you’ll be using to add oomph to your wedding styling. For anyone who hasn’t noticed, it’s British Flowers Week, so what better time to consider using British flowers for your wedding!

I work with British and imported flowers, but I have a definite preference – hopefully I can convince you, too!

Gemma and Mike set the scene for their day by sending all of their guests gold tickets wrapped in chocolate bars as invitations. And this won my heart from the second I knew – they sound fabulous! Their day was themed around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with lots of lovely touches bringing the theme to life and some STUNNING portraits which take my breath away.

I asked Gemma to share her best advice with all of you lovely brides and grooms out there: “Don’t get stressed out about the wedding, and make sure you have the day that YOU want. You don’t always have to please everyone else.”

And after the day? What’s the best thing about being married? “Knowing that we are both really happy, and looking forward to what our next adventure is.” How lovely is that?

Your wedding doesn’t have to be either modern or vintage – it can be classic, timeless and wonderfully pretty. Choosing roses as your key flower sets the scene for a beautifully feminine wedding – and today’s inspiration shoot from lovely Jennifer Sinclair Photography has delicate pink roses aplenty!

I love the little heads of corn interspersed with the flowers, which really bring the countryside vibe to life. The shoot took place in the stables at Sass & Grace bridal boutique in Winchester, and the dark backdrop is a fabulous contrast with the light, pastel flowers.

Brunswick House really is such an amazing, and unique venue – it’s right in the heart of London, packed with salvaged curiosities, sparkling chandeliers, and an eclectic mix of vintage paraphernalia.

“Ally + Dan themselves made this such a memorable day – such amazing characters! I’ve actually seen them since the wedding and we’ve gotten on so well, I wish I could see them more often! There was also an incredibly moving speech – Ally’s dad passed away before the wedding due to illness, but wrote a speech in the event he wouldn’t make it. It was read out by a close friend of the couple, and there really wasn’t a dry eye in the house – me included.”

Happy Monday morning, you lovely lot! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend and I wanted to start our week with something extraordinarily wonderful… a real wedding I’ve had stashed up my sleeve for a little while now, and one I love so, so much! Chrissi and Tom’s wedding is unique for their dramatic images by the ruins of Corfe Castle. Their wedding was photographed by fabulous Dorset wedding photographers Linus Moran and associate photographer Chris Gorman at Linus Moran Photography.

The energy of the couple, their relationship both between them and their gathered friends and family made the day special for me as photographer. This shone through in the images I captured on the day, with some particular favourites from last year’s shooting arising from their day. Namely the ceremony pictures of the bride and groom upon meeting each other at the altar. The look exchanged between them, the curve of Chrissi’s mouth, a beautiful moment of connection. This coupled with great light, composition and timing – its stands out to me. The exchange between mum and daughter at bridal prep with the two bridemaids looking on, and the series of images we did on the fields across from the ruins of Corfe Castle.

Lovers of tropical colours, vibrant details and playful wedding styling will enjoy today’s fun wedding feature from sunny Suffolk, with wedding photographer Ayshea Goldberg, one of our lovely English Wedding Blog sponsors! This is fabulous, funky and bold wedding DIY… and it rocks!

Words & images by Ayshea Goldberg Photography

This wedding at the http://www.westletoncrown.co.uk was on such a hot summer day.  Jess’s tropical colour scheme looked amazing on such a sunny day.  Cerise pink and fiery orange bouquets and centre pieces really popped against the cool black and white venue décor.  The homemade pom poms in the skylight were a fun touch and tied the styling together really well.

I loved that Jess and Ben had planned to go on a drive after they said ‘I do’ to the beach.  We’d planned to have some personal portraits and for them to enjoy a drive through the countryside in their vintage car.

I know some wonderful folks, and I’m lucky to work with so many lovely creative spirits and talented artists. If I could get you all together, brides and photographers, stationery designers and entertainers, in one room and matchmake you all I would. Sadly there’s no way you’d all fit in my dinky little calligraphy studio up here in the Lakes, so all I can do today is share the loveliness of the wonderful suppliers I’ve met along the way who are supporting the English Wedding Blog by being my sponsors. I have huge admiration for all of these hardworking independent businesses and I’d love for you to take a little time to discover (and book!) them today…

Emerald is my birthstone, and green has always been my favourite colour – as a nature lover I adore weddings with tons of green foliage and styling touches. Emma and Steve chose shades of green to style their day at the fabulous Deer Park Country House Hotel in Honiton, Devon. Their wedding is simple, elegant and understated – and the bride and groom are gorgeous.

Emma and Steve chose September for their wedding and were blessed with glorious blue skies and sunshine – just perfect for the Deer Park Country House Hotel, which boasts over 80 acres of wild flower meadows, woodland walks and manicured lawns for you and your guests to explore.

The colour scheme for the day was simple: green and white / ivory with thoughtful little touches dotted around the venue. Bouquets are traditional, with white roses the statement flower of the day. I really hope you love this wedding – it’s everything a wedding should be, and that all comes down to the beautiful bride and groom, and those wonderful smiles which last all day long. Claire

People ask me what I look for from a wedding submission for the blog…and this shot of a Laura’s bouquet is exactly the kind of image I LOVE… it sets the scene for one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen all year. Bride Laura is gorgeous, Kris is ever so handsome, and the images capture the spirit of the day from the ceremony through to the dancing at the end of the night – and with so many glorious details in between. I’m thrilled to feature Kris and Laura’s wedding on the English Wedding Blog

Tenterden harvest festival wedding blog by One Love Pictures (28)

We hadn’t really gone for a theme, we just wanted something quite informal (hence the non matching bridesmaid dresses). When I got my dress we worked the style and materials around that. Kris’s waistcoat had been worn by his step-dad at his wedding to Kris’s mum so we were thrilled to be offered that, and that helped set the colour scheme, and we live a very rural life in Wiltshire so it was natural to go for a sort of harvest festival feel with the wheat ears.

Hey everyone! What are you listening to today? My soundtrack is pretty mixed… a dash of Frank Turner mixed with highlights from the amazing roster on Entertainment Nation.

Their enchanting images are by Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek, who told me “the spirit of the wedding was great. I always like DIY weddings and this one was no exception. Great party and lovely couple. The venue was in a lovely and very secluded woodland location.”

Nicola’s dress is from Ghost – she looks incredible and I really love her relaxed and effortlessly elegant style. The flowers are from a Bristol wholesale flower market, with some grown by Peter’s mother, and they made the beautiful arrangements together. The venue was decorated with lots of greenery from the couple’s garden, bunting borrowed from and made by friends… and an amazing disco ball which looks fantastic in the woodland setting!
