Good morning, beautiful! I’d like to share something a little different with you this morning, if I may? This stunning styled boho shoot comes from gorgeous Gawsworth Hall in Cheshire, and from wedding photographers Boho Lane.

The snowy grounds are gorgeous; the styling creative, alternative and fresh. I adore dried flowers, especially for a winter wedding – and the grasses and lavender are just divine. I also LOVE seeing couples in non-traditional outfits… so the boho dress, faux fur coat and our groom’s more casual look are pretty damn perfect for me.

Boho Lane is a new business launching on Friday, with two established photographers joining forces to create something which promises to be pretty awesome. For details on the launch party see the poster at the end of today’s feature!

Wedding flowers have changed – I could dive into a bouquet these days and live there for a week: the organic and creative florals I see on blogs are out of this world.

My most recent discovery is the fabulous Forage & Blossom – and I asked lovely Alice to tell us a little about her world. It’s all kinds of enchanting…

Claire

Forage and Blossom by name and by nature.

I’m Alice, the founder of Forage and Blossom Flowers. I am a floral designer with an artistic background inspired by all things organic, off-beat and botany based.

My designs are influenced by the wild forms of the natural world and I like to bring in depth with scent, foliage and texture. I love to embrace the natural kinks and flairs of flowers and allow the blooms to flaunt themselves. If a flower has a particularly weird bend in its stem, its a definite keeper! I enjoy creating designs with natural fluidity and movement; each arrangement is as unique as the flowers within it.

It’s one of those days where outside just isn’t an option so instead of my usual run on the beach I’m snuggled at my desk dreaming of cosy log fires and gorgeous winter weddings… which is kind of lovely!

Today I have a lovely luxe shoot from Cotswolds venue Wyck Hill House to share with you. The details are divine and the setting just so luxurious you’ll wish you were there. Enjoy!Claire

Words: Amy Hay at Wyck Hill House Hotel and Spa
Wyck Hill House is just beautiful during the winter months.  To sit and enjoy a warming drink in front of a roaring log fire, and look out over the crisp Cotswold countryside is really rather lovely! I wanted to capture a little of this magic in our shoot and create a setting for a truly stunning winter wedding.”

Candles and lots of them were the order of the day.  Paired with stunning floral arrangements and crystal candlebras, they created a gorgeous glow, off-setting the gold colours in our Adams Room.  We hoped to create a glamorous but very cosy and welcoming wedding breakfast room, which I hope was achieved.

A wedding dress should be, first and foremost, YOU. It should fit like a glove and suit you perfectly, and you should feel like a million dollars. If that means a non-traditional dress, a designer number or even something floaty you’ve made at home, that’s fine by me. I like dresses which are different… ones which make a beautiful statement. Today’s wedding dress of the week is new from Luella’s Bridal: this is “Nuria”.

The collection from Luella’s Bridal (which I’ll be sharing more of in coming weeks) can be described as “Modern Bohemian with a British Victoriana influence” and has been designed in partnership with British Wedding Dress Designer Charlotte Casadejus.

Lottie and Richard’s has to be one of the coolest, brightest, most exciting DIY weddings I’ve ever published – truly, they used ALL the colours… and it looks amazing. They’re a gorgeous couple, their images are superb, and something tells me you’re going to adore their wedding as much as I do!

There was plenty of DIY involved in the run up to the day, and Lottie told me “This was by far the main focus of our wedding preparation. I love arts and crafts.” Some of those makes include 500 origami birds, “which was a challenge!” and a 200-strong multi-coloured paper lantern display in the centre of the marquee.

I can’t show you the wedding without first mentioning the gloriously colourful flowers – they’re just wonderful! Lottie told me “Roseanne’s Florist in Malvern did a fantastic job–they made beautiful multi-coloured arrangements in mixed vases and jam jars. I specifically said there were no rules on colours or flowers, and the result was incredible. It made you smile.”Claire

There’s something so magical about winter – and if you marry in the colder months of the year you’ll have plenty of opportunity to make your day unique. Today’s shoot uses some more unusual winter styling touches – I adore the twigs and white cotton balls – alongside traditional pine cones and plenty of sparkle! This gorgeous mini film by Baxter & Ted adds a unique flavour to winter wedding styling – I hope you love it!

Today’s blog is full of country charm for those of you planning a winter wedding. White orchids, obligatory pine cones, adorable little white cotton balls and handcrafted table centrepieces make today’s shoot magical. The bride and groom are real: they eloped last summer but had no photographs taken of the day. The intimacy of today’s blog captures their love as well as the romance of an intimate winter wedding – and I love it.

Happy Valentines Day, you lovely lot!! I wanted to share something really special with you today – a romantic, intimate English wedding blog with super pretty and inspiring pics! Jo and Andrew are the loveliest couple – their Hampshire wedding at Oakley Hall is absolutely gorgeous. They wanted to show their guests, many of whom were travelling from Australia, a taste of England with the venue, styling and atmosphere of their wedding – and the day looks simply amazing. The flowers are stunning – they’re by Winchester florist Catkin & Pussywillow, who came recommended by Jo & Andrew’s wedding planner Marie at Isabella Weddings.

The images are out of this world – they’re by lovely Hampshire wedding photographer Tasha at Ikonworks Photography. Tasha is a superstar whose passion for her business shines – and Jo & Andrew loved having her around on their wedding day: “We were skeptical about getting a photographer at first as it was such a small wedding but we are so pleased we did… Even tho Tasha was with us from start to finish we didn’t feel she was in the way at all, and in fact by the end she felt like she was part of the family! It was wonderful seeing the photos… we just loved them and viewing them brought back all the wonderful memories.”

Kate & Russell’s wedding is a wonderfully colourful, homemade celebration with some fabulous creative details and lovely moments. Their table plan is divine: you’d never know it was made in a panic the day before the wedding, along with the other reception stationery – it’s so lovely!

Friends and family helped with all aspects of the wedding – Kate says “friends and contacts can be incredibly generous with their time and talents, you just have to ask!”

We had quite a lot of fun trying different cocktail recipes out for the alcoholic, non-fizzy reception drink option.  Making 1.5 litres each of fresh lime, lemon and orange juice the day before was a little less fun…”

… and in case you wonder about the Greek statues, Kate explains, “the entertainment was all arranged for me.  Two dancers dressed as a Greek God and Goddess greeted me to beckon me into church.  The aim was to help me relax and laugh, and it certainly worked!”

If the words on the wedding cake (in scrabble letters) don’t make you feel all squidgy inside, then you’re all wrong. This is so lovely – such a personal wedding day, with some magical moments and creative touches – and a stunning bride and gorgeous groom.

I hope you like this intensely personal, Scrabble-inspired, handmade London wedding. Laura and Rich are both teachers and avid readers so what could be more fitting for their wedding theme than Scrabble?

After an elegant ceremony at Asia House, months of planning and lots of hand-made details transformed their reception venue (Icetank) into a shabby chic heaven complete with the wooden chairs, mismatched tablecloths and floral crockery. They’ve traded the traditional first dance for a violin/guitar performance and topped it all up by a flash mob dance surprise performance by the bridal party.

Hey everyone! I hope the sunshine is with you today… it’s glorious here, it feels as though it’s been sooooo long! So it’s a happy day – and for two reasons. One: sunshine 🙂 and two: I have someone awesome I’d like to introduce you to – Yorkshire wedding photographer Ian Wallace.

Ian Wallace has had some beautiful weddings featured on the English Wedding Blog over the years. There was Anna & Tom’s Aldwark Manor wedding, and then Adrian and Charlotte’s gorgeous Wasing Park wedding from last spring. All of Ian’s photography is beautiful, timeless and elegant – and so to have him join the English Wedding Blog as a sponsor is a real treat.

Ian says “I like my photos to tell you about a moment. To tell you about a person. To make you feel like you were there. Photos will bring back memories and help to tell a story, which is why I love photographing weddings… I come away with a collection of moments and memories in my camera.”

As a little girl I would visit my nan every Sunday, unlock her china cabinet and carefully handle her beautiful tea set. She’d been given this as a wedding gift in 1956. I’d spend hours playing with the tea cups, pretending to hold tea parties. I was enchanted by their delicacy, the pretty rose design and gold gilding.

These were keep for ‘good’ and I loved it when special visitors came and they were used. The tea seemed to taste better, the sandwiches looked daintier, the cakes more elegant, and the whole occasion extra special. It was here that my love affair with afternoon tea and vintage china started.

When my boyfriend proposed I knew exactly what kind of wedding I wanted. A few years earlier we’d attended the Royal garden party at Buckingham palace and I wanted to recreate that, but with alcohol and perhaps on a smaller scale.
