Today’s real wedding is one of those timeless celebrations which I know I can blog now, and brides in 2025 will still be turning to it for inspiration. It’s sheer luxe and so beautiful – Rebecca is breathtaking, her husband Dominic looks fabulous, and the venue is out of this world! Wow.

The venue was magnificent and required minimal decoration. Our florist decorated both the day and evening rooms. The evening venue was the Queen Mary Undercroft at the Naval College which had pillars in it. Our florist put fairy lights and ivory up around the pillars and we had two large pedestal flower sprays which were at the entrance.

I’m a writer. I write for the English Wedding Blog, and when I’m not here I’m sat with a dip pen and a pot of ink, in a flurry of paper chaos, writing modern calligraphy. I love to create something beautiful, unique and enchanting. I also love to see people learn to write modern calligraphy – the joy of learning is so special to see.

Over the past few years I’ve taught dozens of brides-to-be, craft lovers, designers and wedding pros to write in beautiful modern calligraphy. I teach my workshops in Manchester, and I’m often asked if I hold workshops in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and more…

Sometime before Christmas, I’ll start teaching modern calligraphy worldwide

I’m launching an online calligraphy workshop: a set of video tutorials and accompanying worksheets which give you all the information you’ll need to learn modern lettering in the comfort of your own home.

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re ready for something really lovely… today’s Lincolnshire wedding is so so beautiful. I love Rebecca’s stunning dress (she’s just sooo beautiful!) and George’s beard – between the two of them this is just a perfect wedding for the blog and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

“We met while studying fine art at uni so it seemed a bit of a no-brainer to make our own stationery. George made the drawings for our invitations, order of service and table plan, while I made the layouts and put them together. It was pretty time consuming but we spend a lot of time making stuff anyway, and it was great because we got to include lots of little details and a lot of lavender!”

The flowers were peach and cream roses with rosemary, freesia and lavender. Our local florist, P and N Pitchers in Alford, Lincolnshire, provided the bouquet, bridesmaids flowers and buttonholes for us. We decorated the church with potted lavender plants and the table decorations were provided by the venue, with masses of cream roses, hessian and lace.

I was speechless when I first saw this beautiful wedding in my inbox – all I could say to Colin at first was “Wow… the brides, the details, the photography, the flowers… everything is just perfect.” and it still stops me in my tracks when I scroll through the images now. You’re in for a treat.

This is an absolutely perfect blog post – the flowers are so vibrant and colourful, and the mossy details are fab. I adore the fireplace, so full of colour – and the portraits of beautiful bride Hannah & her new husband Matt outside Woodhall Spa Manor are wonderful.

Our flowers were multi coloured and summery – truly breath taking – they were by Flowers by Suzanne. I added a few personal touches of my own creation, including a timeline of the day on an old mirror painted with chalk paint (borrowed from my cousin’s wedding) and a fingerprint tree guest book I made from an online template. I absolutely loved putting these few things together; luckily I am a teacher so had a few weeks before the wedding in the holidays to do all of this.

My little blogging desk, as you may know, is on the edge of the Lake District. We do get sunshine, but more often we have a variety we call ‘liquid sunshine‘, and we’ve kind of learned to love a misty, drippy or downright sodden day’s adventure in the fells. So when I read that Cornwall’s loveliest wedding venue Launcells Barton had written about rain on your wedding day, I smiled. Turns out, for what sounds like a relatively tropical place to me, these Cornish wedding pros have some pretty amazing ideas for rainy wedding days! I asked if we could share their advice, and they very kindly said yes. So here are our top tips, just in case it rains on your wedding day!

Those of you who’ve spent any time at all on the English Wedding Blog will know me for my love of letters. I spend my days writing calligraphy, and teaching the art of beautiful lettering to brides and creative folks at my Manchester workshops. Words are most definitely my thing. (Oh! I’m teaching the last class of the year on the 18th of November. You can book here)

Caroline and Sam’s big day is absolutely, 100%, wonderfully and amazingly perfect for the English Wedding Blog – even without the zipwire (which is a total bonus! Love it!) The hand lettering and all the DIY elements are so up my street – the amount of time and hard work that went into styling this wedding paid off wonderfully. The ‘it was always you’ sign; the ceramic tiles, the lettering everywhere… it’s just so inspiring I don’t know where to begin!

I’ve just learned a few dozen things about booking a wedding band online. I’ve been absorbing info like a happy little sponge from the guys at Seventh Second – a wedding entertainment website with a real difference. These guys are honest, helpful, 100% committed, oh and they’re musicians themselves so they know everything there is for you to know about booking your wedding band.

Annie and Sam are gorgeous! Their day is just the perfect English wedding – celebrating love in a magnificent venue, surrounded by history and character and by everyone they love. Today’s is a wedding where elegant touches are carefully considered – Annie’s dress is divine, her flowers simple but with intriguing, delicate little tendrils of foliage. And the wonder, the essence of the day comes from Dorset’s beautiful Athelhampton House.

“The day was a joy and creatively refreshing. A familiar venue, a great couple and new artistic opportunities… Being a relatively small wedding, we were lucky to have more time to devote to some relaxed portraits around the grounds. Avoiding as far as possible clichéd locations, we were looking for something new and fresh. Low perspectives won through, shooting through ground covering cyclamens, reflections in pools and finding new walk ways away from the house!” ~ Linus Moran

Today’s bride Lucy is stunning, she has the most amazing smile. The bouquet caught my eye straight away, it’s just insanely pretty – and I love love love their style and all the special little touches. Sam’s look is perfect for a modern wedding (grooms, take note!) and for a village hall this is just blindingly beautiful! I wish I got more real wedding submissions from Wales…

My bouquet was by Charlotte from Verity and Thyme and the rest I (and my uni girls) did . The bridesmaids and all decorative flowers were done by us the day before. My bouquet was SO lovely – charlotte had seen a handful of inspirational images from me and created the most perfect blooms!
