Yay! We all survived the first week back at work… and it’s time for a well-deserved restful weekend ūüôā But first, this week’s wedding photo of the week. A beautiful smile is all it takes to brighten my week, and Emily’s smile for her husband speaks of pure happiness¬†in this pic!

I have to confess I’ve neglected my little Vespa over recent months: but seeing today’s wedding makes me desperate to go and play out again! Lovely Suffolk photographer Ayshea Goldberg knows me too well: send me a gorgeous wedding with a Vespa and I simply can’t say no. I love this so very much!

The venue and its floral decorations are super pretty: I know those of you with a love of traditional weddings will adore this. Rosanne is absolutely stunning; Isaac is ever so handsome and that grin for his bride and his Vespa have kept me smiling since the moment I first saw this amazing wedding!

Glemham has a beautiful staircase in the Grand Hall, which our amazing florist decorated with flowers –¬† but we let the rest of the venue speak for itself. The Rose Garden in particular was stunning when we got married in September. The reception meal was held in the marquee outside, but we kept things fairly simple with tall, elegant centre pieces.

The last thing I want to do is suggest anyone fall in with the crowd and style their wedding for this year’s fashions. And yet… there’s a wonderful appeal to creating something new for your wedding, something your friends and family didn’t see at last year’s weddings, right?

I don’t follow trends in fashion; but what I see online does influence my tastes. I love messy foliage, tumbledowny style and design, upcycling and art. They impact on my home life, my calligraphy studio, the things I buy.

The same applies with weddings: we’re exposed to so many beautiful things online that we can’t help wanting a little piece of them… and this is what we’ll be seeing more of in 2016.

Feel free to run with these ideas and create something magical, or to ignore them entirely and pour your own fabulously creative style into your day.

I’m so excited for 2016 – with our book launch this morning and lots of exciting plans for features and adventures over the next few months I can’t wait to share with you!

Carol Elizabeth Photography provides informal wedding photography in Oxfordshire

Carol’s style of¬†wedding photography¬†is informal, natural and enjoyable but also unique to each couple. “I get to know my clients ahead of their day so that they are relaxed in front of the camera.¬†I am based in Oxfordshire and love the range of beautiful venues in my home county ‚Äď from stately homes to barns, old hotels to boat houses.”

I am more classical than contemporary or quirky, and a lot of the day is reportage photography of the day as it unfolds. I feel it‚Äôs important for the bride and groom to have some beautiful and natural portraits after the ceremony as well as plenty of informal images capturing the guests and venue.”

I’ve been so excited about today. Secret projects and whispered email conversations with some of my most favourite people have come together to make something beautiful for YOU: The English Wedding Book. It’s an online publication (no dead trees: yay!) which is filled with beautiful style ideas, expert tips and real weddings, with a full chapter of advice from real couples to help you plan your big day.

It’s FREE to read, and it’s also free from advertising. For me this is a pretty major deal:¬†I want you to enjoy the book for what it is: pages of articles¬†with¬†beautiful photography¬†to inspire your wedding, with no pressure to buy a single thing.

We talk everything weddings: from venue hunting to the pros and cons of an intimate wedding. Budgets come into play; we share thoughts on choosing a wedding photographer, on buying your dress and styling your day. You’ll find my trend predictions for the year ahead in the English Wedding Book as well as my favourite styled shoots from some top English wedding suppliers.

I love a wedding with a story, and with something different and personal to the couple – and for beautiful bride Claire and her gorgeous husband Matt the stories are absolutely incredible – as amazing as the images of their day.

The proposal is a story in itself: Matt was going to propose at the top of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania but Claire broke her foot and couldn’t go on holiday, so the best man went instead. “John videoed Matt proposing to me at the top. He later showed me the proposal and asked for my answer at the top of Toubkal in the Atlas Mountains ‚Äď 5 months later ‚Äď they both kept the secret well!

Their Cornwall wedding is absolutely beautiful: the hilltop theme continues with some of the most spectacular shots you can imagine – taken by lovely reportage photographer Alexa Poppe. Claire and Matt share some great advice with us in their interview below: to save money they say “Do as much as you can yourself. All of our church and table flowers were from the hedgerows or the garden and luckily we have some very talented flower arrangers as friends!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve had an amazing festive period and are settling into work this morning as gently as you possibly can! To help ease your morning at work, here’s a vibrant and pretty summer wedding from Oxfordshire which I know¬†will brighten your day!

Gorgeous bride Madeleine worked hard to make place settings, while her sister helped with the¬†wedding flowers, her mother made the cake and Chris’s mother made¬†miles of bunting which was beautiful and hung from the beams. She told me, “You can hand-make various things, but that doesn‚Äôt save very much really, and the big expenses are unavoidable ‚Äď food, alcohol etc. As my mother would say ‚Äď ‚Äėelope!‚Äô…¬†The handmade bits were certainly hard work, but they were also some of our favourite elements.

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had the most amazing Christmas ever. It’s certainly been a whirlwind of happy wrapping and unwrapping, travelling and wine here at English Wedding Blog HQ!! We’re tired and very content and looking forward to a few ‘unplugged’ days (thanks for the idea, Claire S!) before the New Year.

So¬†while I snuggle into a surplus of mulled wine I’m going to treat you – because you’re the loveliest people and I couldn’t bear to leave you without something utterly amazing to look at until January – with my favourite weddings of 2015. I’ve been saving them up, keeping a secret list for this very day. You’re welcome.

Highland Inspired Wedding Shoot

A team of local talented suppliers collaborated at the breathtaking Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire on a crisp Autumn day to capture images with a Scottish theme.

The shoot theme was decided upon by wedding planner Olivia Mills from Host Event Management: “I wanted to provide something different to inspire brides. ¬†You see so many whimsical, summery shoots on blogs and in magazines, I wanted to create something moody, luxe and rich for brides to be to get ideas from.

I love that this is a relaxed celebration in every sense: the overall look is colourful and fun, with a rustic country garden twist. Fiona looks amazing in her Jenny Packham dress; Mark is her perfect partner and they just look so incredibly happy together.
