Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I have a properly, charmingly, adorably English wedding to share with you all! Tracey and Garry’s afternoon tea wedding caught my eye for their fabulous portraits, the bouquet, the vintage camper and how gorgeous they both look. I always say a great clue to how well a wedding will fit the blog is what the groom is wearing… and I love Garry’s smart but relaxed look. Tracey, of course, looks absolutely stunning.

We wanted a wedding that was personal to us and exactly how we wanted it so we saved so much money by doing everything ourselves instead of paying someone else to do it for us. We shopped around for all of the decorations for the hall, bought all of the crockery by scouring boot sales, charity shops and ebay, bought items from B&M which we then personalised, bought fresh flowers from a local market seller which a friend kindly turned into the church and table displays.

So this is an absolute stunner of a wedding… John and Lucy are sooo gorgeous and their wedding day is full of wonderful makes and beautiful details. I love it to bits and I hope you will too! Lucy’s dress is out of this world, the images are light and fresh and make me want to see more. The minimal styling is really refreshing – the Cambridge venues and emotions of the day really do say it all.

Lucy’s mum made her wedding dress… isn’t it fabulous? Other details were homemade as well, from stationery to flower arrangements and even props for the photo booth! “We sourced the flowers ourselves and my mum, sister and niece arranged them. We also used tealights, fairy lights, and created our own photo booth with some props and an instant camera. I really enjoyed designing our wedding stationery, and the photo booth was also a lot of fun – sourcing all the props etc.”

I was so excited when I saw all the lovely images from Madeleine and George’s beautiful wedding – they married on the cusp of spring, and used wild cherry blossom as a key floral theme with darker reds and woodland shades to style their day. Their Vietnamese-English fusion wedding brings a lovely splash of colour with all the fabulous reds, and the portraits of the bride and groom are stunning, as is St Audries Park. You’ll love it!

“We used pale pink cherry blossom, rich red vanda orchids for a slightly oriental feel and blousy peony like, pale pink ranunculus, along with blue green foliages such as eucalyptus, ice plant. I wanted the bouquet to be natural looking, seasonal and trailing. A hand tied bouquet of flowers with an undulating, flowing and natural outline.

All the flowers in the bride and civil ceremony bridesmaid bouquets, buttonholes, corsages for the tea ceremony bridesmaids and the decorations for the shrine tables, ceremony tables and centrepieces for the wedding breakfast tables used cherry blossom twigs which helped to give a winter into spring feel and the buttonholes and corsages picked up the ruby red, dusky pink colours of the morning ceremony.

Lovely John Mottershaw is lucky enough to live in the beautiful Peak District national park, one of England’s most breathtaking landscapes. I was born there; it’s a place close to my heart and one I’d love to explore more – so I’m happy to say we’ll be featuring some glorious Peak District weddings over the next few months, thanks to John and his gorgeous brides and grooms!

John Mottershaw Photography has a refreshingly informal approach compared with other wedding photographers:

I believe the photography should be an enjoyable part of the wedding and I aim to make the actual taking of the photographs as special as I want the photographs themselves to be. This is important to me in creating story-telling that is a treasured souvenir of your wonderful day.

From his base in the Peak District, close to Chesterfield and Sheffield, John enjoys travelling to weddings all around the UK. He told me his is a family business: there has been a wedding photographer in the Mottershaw family for many decades and their love of photography dates back as far as 1870!

So music would be top of my wedding planning list, and there’d be an amazing party atmosphere… more important than dresses, or vows, or food, or wine… there’d be a band, and dancing, and a real sense of celebration. I might even elope so I could go to a concert the evening after my wedding with all of my friends, and tell them there. If music is important to you too, you’ll want to read this:

I always like to pick out my favourite few photos to show you first – it’s a great way to set the scene for a gorgeous wedding blog feature, and I always love scrolling through a wedding, looking out for those amazing, eye-catching, breathtakingly beautiful moments to share with you. However… I tried it today, and within moments I had a list of a dozen STUNNING moments from Dale and Charmaine’s day. Safe to say this is a knockout, and I love every. single. pic.

It’s gorgeous Jess and Rich’s eclectic style which makes this London wedding so deliciously different and captivating. Their theme emerged as a heady mixture of romantic, prohibition, art deco and industrial… and their wedding is one of my favourite blog posts of the year already! With flowers by Rebel Rebel, a Charlie Brear gown and photos by Paul Rogers, you’ll LOVE Jess and Rich’s wedding style!

As amazing as this wedding looks, it’s inspiring to discover nearly everything was home made. Jess told me the crafting was “a labour of love but totally worth it!” There are some gorgeous home made touches: the wedding cake, table flowers, invitations, programs, table plan, table name cards, menus, cocktail menus, and even bathroom signs! “Trinity Buoy Wharf was a total blank canvas! We spent a full day on Friday the day before decorating it with props, flowers, setting up tables etc.” Jess’s sister made their fabulous naked cake – “it fitted the relaxed style of the wedding and looked fantastic!

Today’s wedding is sublime. It’s timeless, sophisticated, and fuses contemporary styling with inspired nods to history and old English grandeur. Look closely for the tap shoes, admire the fabulous stationery (by my friends at Noble Fine Art), and join me in falling head over heels for this stunning Castle Howard wedding.

Castle Howard has the most beautiful exterior and interior. We had candelabras up the grand staircase and candelabras along the three long tables in the Long Gallery, not very often done at Castle Howard (where there are usually round tables).

For the evening party downstairs in the Grecian Hall we wanted a big contrast, which meant we had multi colours running up the pillars and large 5 Foot J&D, LOVE and MR & MR lights which made the rooms look incredible!”

Aaron and Sarah’s wedding has wow factor: the locations around Consall Hall are simply breathtaking. Those trees... really, these are some of my favourite wedding pics so far this year. I love their day for its simplicity, rustic appeal and romance – and the beautiful bride and groom are just made for each other.

We chose a vintage/rustic theme as Aaron proposed after an afternoon tea (which we then chose to have as a wedding breakfast), and because we love the informal/relaxed style. We did a lot of the preparation ourselves, we made all of the stationery including invitations (huge saving!), and we kept things simple.”

I loved making all of the stationery, but then I am a perfectionist and I knew exactly what I wanted. One person we met with said that the design wasn’t possible in the size we wanted (A6). Luckily I am a crafty person, so determined to have what I wanted, I made it myself (and succeeded!)

It’s really important to me to feature REAL weddings on the English Wedding Blog. For me, that means not importing the most lavish or unusual weddings from overseas photographers, but sharing UK weddings from my photographer friends. And Anna and Dale’s wedding strikes me as one which is elegant, timeless and uniquely English in flavour. They’re gorgeous; their day is simply styled and looks lovely, and I love their images too!

This wedding was just perfect!  Everything had been planned so carefully and worked so well on the day. The couple are lovely, their colour scheme was elegant – navy, silver and ivory flowers, their venue was idyllic (I love working here).

Anna is beautiful and her choice of dress was exactly what I’d imagined her in too.
