Your wedding can have luxe styling, romantic florals and pretty details even with a more industrial, city backdrop. There’s something I really love about contrasting an urban setting with feminine decor, and today’s styled shoot is simply fabulous.

This styled shoot was inspired by the growing trend in urban feel weddings in London but with brides wanting to maintain that luxurious and stylish feel. Watercolour touches added softness to the industrial surroundings of Drake and Morgan at Kings Cross through the use of silk linens, stunning stationery and a beautifully water colour painted cake.

The use of herbs again brought a softer feel to the venue but also bought the outside in, something that can be important to brides if the venue they choose does not have its own green outdoor space.

An English country garden is a place of tranquility, beauty and soft, playful colour. Its charm has inspired thousands of weddings dating back many, many years – and for me the wonder of an English garden wedding theme will never fade. Sarah and Nick’s wedding uses the very best of country garden styling and adds personal, traditional touches to the theme: tea and china, Pimms, fairy cakes, croquet and bunting. It’s so perfect!

Today’s stunning bride and groom married at Devon’s Deer Park Hotel, an 18th century Georgian mansion just outside of Honiton. The Deer Park’s enchanting gardens make for the loveliest backdrop for a summer wedding, and the orangery is a beautifully light ceremony venue.

Almost every morning you’ll find me on the beach, or in the hills gazing down at the estuary below the village where I live. I have a thing for beach weddings – they’re the most amazing thing ever! I love the portraits of Michael & Sara, especially the black & white images on the sand… they’re gorgeous and this is incredible!

Photographers Emily & Steve told me “The Grand Hotel in Swanage is perched right on a cliff with steps down to the beach! It was stunning and the perfect location for a summer wedding. It was the first wedding we’ve been to where the guests suddenly started to serenade the couple with ‘Love is all around’. They were all swaying their arms and really getting into it! It was so much fun!”

My dress was in the first shop I went to and I hadn’t ever seen a wedding dress similar to it. I liked the front with a bit of sparkle but fell in love with the back with the cowel back, buttons and train. I did go to another shop to have a look but there was nothing anywhere near as beautiful so rushed straight back to Village Brides to buy it.

Today’s real wedding on the blog is just… timeless. Beautiful. Elegant. Laura and Lewis are perfect together – they look amazing and the style of their wedding is divine. That dress…

Laura and Lewis are one of the friendliest, funniest, craziest couples I’ve worked with. Everyone was just genuinely thrilled to celebrate the day with the couple.

Laura was excited about everything and Lewis was possibly the most emotional groom I’ve met. He couldn’t wait to see Laura walk down the aisle – and was so nervous while she kept him waiting. Laura just constantly chats about anything and everything – I feel like I really know them. Their families were both so welcoming too and everyone was enthusiastic to come outside for portraits even when it started to rain.

Lewis’s speech was the sweetest and most emotional I’ve ever heard a groom say, he even made me well up! Good job I could hide behind my camera!

Planning your wedding is exciting, daunting, adventurous and overwhelming… a bit of a rollercoaster at times, full of thrills and dramas – and a little help can go a long way! Get sensibly inspired – it’s a thing! – today with these simple, down-to-earth and super useful tips from our friends at Launcells Barton in Cornwall.

1. Create a day to suit you both, and make it personal

Forget anything you’ve read or heard about the ‘ideal’ wedding, and start from scratch with your own ideas. Ultimately, this is going to be the Best Day Ever for both of you, so having a wedding that reflects your style and tastes is the most important thing.

2. Watch as your wedding venue changes with the seasons

It’s a really good idea to re-visit your wedding venue at the same time of year as you’ll be getting married.

I love Katie and Ben’s wedding! Alice in Wonderland is a fun theme, and their styling is uniquely elegant… it’s just perfect. The decor is lovely and light and pretty and feminine, the bride is beautiful, and there’s a magic to the portraits which I really love.

Alice in Wonderland wedding at Saltcote Place with Kerry Ann Duffy Photography (9)

“We hung lanterns the day before, which took a good few hours and all the bridesmaids pitching in! We also had to lay out the other elements, like the croquet, cake table and place cards. I stamped out all the table placecards, designed the menu, and made favours with my bridesmaid, white and purple marshmallows wrapped in ribbon with a personalised sticker which I designed online. With another bridesmaid we made all the ‘over here’ ‘this way to wonderland’ signs with paint and an old crate. Our wedding cake was an M & S Oversized Colin – to match the theme (and who doesn’t love Colin?!)”

Gorgeous bride Nazma told me her wedding to David was a multicultural fusion of love, family, friendship & everlasting memories. And you know what? I think this is one of the loveliest days I’ve had the pleasure of featuring on the English Wedding Blog! The colours, elegance and character of the day are stunning – this is a wedding to warm your soul and make you smile out loud. Enjoy – the English Wedding Blog is BEAUTIFUL today!

Fusion wedding at Warwick House Rob & Sarah Gillespie (24)

Warwick House is a dedicated wedding venue. The stunning layout meant that nothing really needs adding other than personal touches. The neutral colours meant that any colour theme can be incorporated at the venue without looking out of place.

We made the stationery ourselves – it was a combination of a labour of love and stress! Making wedding stationery can be a timely and patient process so I’d recommend only doing it if you’ve got the time and help from some crafty minded friends!

Christian's Cafe wedding review images by Eyesome Photography on the English Wedding Blog (5)

“Our wedding was a natural, relaxed, outdoor garden party! We wanted a natural and relaxed day that we could spend as much time outside as possible. It was just like having a day with our best friends.

Christian's Cafe wedding review images by Eyesome Photography on the English Wedding Blog (26)

The marquee and church we decorated ourselves, the reception venue fitted our theme well so not much decorating required – it was all done by us! The venue didn’t need much at all. It is very rustic with brick walls and wooden beams, very barn like and just what we wanted. We put a few things up bit really didn’t need to over do it. The table decorations, marquee decorations and church decorations were all handmade by my stepmother using hessian, lace, ribbon and string in white and coral to match the bridesmaid dresses, flowers and men’s ties!”

How many of us, as little girls, dream of being a bride in a white dress and veil, and of being a ballerina on a stage? There’s a magic to both: a romance, a spirit of beautiful femininity – and it’s enchanting when both come together. Today’s styled shoot is from a wedding photographer whose other specialism is ballet photography. I hope you will love this as much as I do! The bouquet and dresses are sublime, just perfect for a romantic wedding day by the sea…

I specialise in dance and ballet photography and when not photographing ballerinas, my camera is focused on brides and wedding photography. I organised this styled bridal photoshoot to bring together a group of my friends, who are all running their own businesses and whose work I admire. I approached my favourite hotel in Jersey  – the Atlantic Hotel – and they were delighted to participate, so all was set and ready to go.

If I could take a polaroid of every bouquet we feature on the English Wedding Blog, and paper my little office & studio space with all of them it would just be soooo beautiful. Sometimes a gorgeous wedding inspires you to dream crazy things… but that’s ok, and I know we’re going to inspire you with some lovely ideas today. The flowers are only the beginning of this stunning day…

Real wedding at Coombe Trenchard Devon with Freckle Photography (20)

We wanted a wedding with a hint of vintage and a spring country feel. Most suppliers were recommended by Coombe Trenchard (marquee company, caterers, mobile bar). The band we sourced from Alive Network and Emma @ Freckle Photography was found by some extensive internet searching as photography was extremely important for us to get right!

I love today’s real wedding blog – the peonies, the lens flare, the castle… the details are simple but the overall look is so elegant and beautiful. And Lulworth Castle is fabulous… the interior is perfectly imperfect and would lend itself to a modern, almost urban wedding style as gracefully as it does to today’s wonderfully feminine & romantic theme…

Castle wedding in Dorset at Lulworth Castle with Jodie Cooling Photography (34)

“The wedding flowers were pink peonies, gypsophilia, all very pretty and pink! We went for tall table arrangements at the castle as it helped to draw the eye upwards into the beautiful building. Our florist was Christine Browne of Floral Arts in Weymouth, she knows the castle inside out so knew what would work. Pink peonies were really my only request and although we discussed it all, we left it to her to do a great job for us. Trust them – they know what works!”
