This next week is going to be chaos. In fact, the last two weeks have been a little frantic behind the scenes here at English Wedding HQ! You see, I’m making some whopping changes to English Wedding. For the last 10 years we’ve been a blog first and foremost, featuring as many real weddings and supplier collabs as we possibly can. That usually means every day we’re sharing a brand new list of 10 or so fab wedding suppliers – and showcasing their work on the blog. I love it when the recommendations come directly from the bride and groom, but all too often it means those wedding suppliers are on our home page for only a day – and then drift away into the archives.
Hey lovely! Happy Wednesday and I hope you have sunshine!! Prepare to be literally glued to your screen though, because right now I’m sharing one of the PRETTIEST weddings as we join Sarah and Greg at Dorfold Hall, with images by Joasis Photography – this is just SO beautiful! It’s wonderful to read such fabulous words about The Little Paper Shop too – they’re a glorious little stationery boutique in Nantwich, and where I’ll be teaching calligraphy workshops this September! Cheshire brides – do check it out as I would LOVE to meet you there!
The English Wedding Directory is where you can find all of our favourite wedding suppliers. Our Facebook page is updated with new vendors when they join us, and the Directory is full of brilliant photographers, stationers, florists, stylists, stationers… everything you might need for the wedding of your dreams!
These lovely people have joined the English Wedding Directory in the last couple of weeks – and we have HUGE wedding directory news to share with you soon! Do take a moment to discover them, and if you like what you see why not get in touch and even book this week?
Have you ever wondered how wedding planners and stylists get married? Me too! Today I’m thrilled to say we have all the answers, as lovely Lauren and David are sharing their stunning Wiltshire wedding on the English Wedding blog today. Lauren is the owner of Lauren Alexander Weddings – she’s also an English Wedding reader and has shared some fantastic tips with us in a brilliant interview (which carries on beneath all of the beautiful photographs). Lauren and David describe their day as, “Fun, boozy, eclectic, beautiful, happy, musical and ‘us’.” – which is, for me, everything the perfect wedding could ever need. There are stunning styling touches as well – plenty of DIY ideas and the FUNNEST and most gorgeous wedding shoes! I just know you’ll love this! Over to Lauren…

When you think of lavender fields your mind probably instantly wanders to Provence, at least mine does. But time and time again I am reminded of the beautiful, almost destination wedding-esque vibes that we have here in the UK. This was definitely the case when Danielle and Joe wanted to have their engagement shoot in the lavender fields in Hitchin (others are available!)
