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.

Sophisticated real wedding at Castle Howard by Ally Byrom Photography (54)

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!

Real wedding at Kersey Mill with Ayshea Goldberg Photography (4)

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.

Today’s wedding is just beautiful – I love it. The rain makes for a magical story behind the images, which are all the lovelier for it! Della and Aaron make such a gorgeous couple – she’s stunning, and her dress is fabulous. The portraits of the couple are sublime, the cake is something of a masterpiece… absolutely wonderful.

Our colour palette was very neutral, with tones of pale blush/pink/nude. We wanted our style to be simple and elegant with a slight vintage feel, but not too traditional. Our table names were areas/themes/classical artists of Florence (where Aaron proposed).”

Photographer Clare from LoveSeen remembers the weather very clearly – and I love how she embraced the challenge and came up with some amazing images! “It was relentless rain all day which was a shame as it was an otherwise sunny July. However, this made it more of a creative challenge for me and it was good to be able to put a smile on their faces and come up with some unique ways of showing their wedding.”

Shot on a beautifully sunny day in June, this & the locations made for a quintessentially English wedding, all the more unusual because Jennifer is from the US. The clash of cultures was what made it memorable as we had celebrations & ceremonies from each country.

Stoke Place wedding blog with Buckinghamshire photographers Neil Walker Photography (40)

Stoke Place is a wonderful venue, bright & airy, the light is fantastic for me as a photographer. The gardens made it easy to have everyone outside, but also have enough space to take Jennifer & Marcus off for some photos of the two of them without everyone else being able to see us. Isabel Smith’s wedding planning made for a very smooth day as she coordinated with Stoke Place.

Subtle colours and your own personal style are all you need to make your wedding perfectly, beautifully YOU – and today’s gorgeous bride and groom show us just how it’s done. Their day is elegant, with touches of glamour and timeless charm – and it’s as full of love and laughter as can be.

Styling is subtle and sophisticated: the flowers use green foliage and white ranunculus.We decorated the tables ourselves with long vases with ranunculus and gold and ivory petals scattered around.”

I asked the happy couple what one piece of advice they’d give to readers of the English Wedding Blog: “Always look at your watch, as it makes the time go slower!  Don’t get chatting to people for too long; you’re there to party too!”

You know when nature creeps into the cracks of a wall on an old industrial site…? I love that. Life prevails. Beauty wins, and today we show a transformation which will turn your wedding venue world on its head. You really can be married anywhere. I almost wonder if an abandoned warehouse space could become a more beautiful location than a stately home? After all, we’ve kind of done village halls now… Claire

The magic is in the contrast. An urban, industrial backdrop filled with handcrafted and botanical details: handwritten calligraphy, botanical illustration, a delicately crafted and stunning wedding cake. There are feather garlands to soften and add texture and hand cut paper flowers for a chic, modern DIY look. Dresses are by the one and only Claire Pettibone, styling is by Sheffield’s gorgeous Nina Marika, and the sublime images are courtesy of lovely Jess Petrie.

Today’s wedding is so, so perfect… it’s full of laughter and love, with the loveliest styling and decor… and the most beautiful bride and gorgeous groom. I can’t think of a better way to begin our week, can you?!

The flowers are by Kate at Windmill Farm Flowers. Nicola told me they were “the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. So perfect and effective.” The naked cake fitted the wedding style so well – and the decoration is fabulous. It was made by the Exclusive Cake Company, Dulverton.

The styling of the venue involved family and friends: “My Maid of Honour made us some beautiful bunting which we hung in the Barn. we made the venue look our own which was really important. The Groom and his groomsmen were amazing and did alot of the dressing of the venue which I loved.”

“We did homemade confetti which all of my beautiful bridemaids helped with. We put them into personalised bags. it was lovely. We had homemade bunting, and sweetbags and the favours were biscuits with tea!”

Betty & Phil’s day stood out from others I covered last year as it seemed to be very simple in its delivery. The bride, the details, the location – all very classic, chic and English garden themed. From the Sassi Holford dress, to the idyllic thatched cottage B&B venue at the foothill of St Catherines chapel. The weather was perfect, the scene was stunning and the spirit of the couple and the people topped it all off.

Regular blog readers will know I love weddings where things are done differently: where normal rules don’t apply and unusual things can happen. So I love marquees, but on one condition: they have to be in crazy beautiful places. Like this…

Spring, Summer or Autumn, the great outdoors has an amazing advantage over any other wedding venue  – a constantly changing colour palette,  a great feeling of being in touch with your surroundings, wonderful natural light (your photographer will love you!) and of course an amazing background to your celebration.  It’s not surprising then that there has been a growing increase in demand for marquee venues, special locations with fantastic country, coast or beachside views.

Lizzie and Nilo’s wedding is as beautifully traditional in style as it is epic in the party stakes… and the images are simply, elegantly wonderful. With a lot of Brazilians coming over for the wedding, Lizzie and Nilo wanted a really classical English setting, and the venue was certainly that – lots of oak paneled wood and decorative shields – exactky what they were aiming for.

The thing I love most about weddings is capturing the emotion – I really do love it when people let their guard down and show their true feelings in such an open way – and this one definitely had that. I’m not sure if it was the Brazilian twist to things, but the Groom, Nilo, had no qualms about showing exactly how overcome with emotion he was. It was beautiful to see. Plus they had Brazilian dancers, a magician, Lizzie’s mum sang an opera tune, and Nilo ended up on the drums!
