Shades of summer, blissful memories and a beautiful bride – today’s wedding is out of this world. Sally and Matt were married at Wadhurst Castle in West Sussex in September. They caught the last of our summer sunshine and have some of the loveliest images to treasure their day by.

I asked the gorgeous bride and groom to share the story of their day and they didn’t disappoint – you can read their English Wedding Blog interview at the end of today’s blog feature. Sally gives some great advice on everything from kinder eggs to harpists…

I love the idea of hiring a jukebox; it’s great to hear how amazing a harpist can be; polaroids are a genius idea; a wedding prep weekend sounds like so much fun!

Hey everyone! I’m spending this afternoon nose-deep in my email inbox, catching up with all of your messages. While I’m in there, I thought I would ask for your help with something!

As we come up to Christmas and the New Year the English Wedding Blog is going to get busy with newly engaged couples looking for wedding ideas for 2016. I want to give our readers what they’re looking for: brilliant ideas from amazing suppliers; the best photography and most creative inspiration for the year to come. And I think – no, I know – you can help.

I’m looking for lovely products to show my readers: anything from stationery suites to cake designs and flowers.

I’m looking for new styled shoots which will set 2016 on fire.

I’m looking for those little gems of suppliers who are worth their weight in gold: it could be you, or a supplier you stumbled across, even a friend whose handcrafted pieces are perfect for 2016 weddings.

Choosing your wedding colours has turned into a fine art – and statement combinations make my heart sing. I love Jennifer Sinclair Photography for her styled shoots, and this latest seaside photoshoot in Bournemouth is right up my street. The colours are divine: rich autumn reds and the most delicate sea blues work so well together!

Jennifer told me, “We decided to do a mini-styled bridal shoot in Bournemouth just for fun.  We teamed up with Lily Waite who did an amazing job on the makeup and hair.  The flowers were just perfect for a winter themed shoot; thank you Lisa from Fleur De Lis for creating the beautiful bridal flowers.”

The blue of the sea, the pale golden sands and the cool stone arches all contrast beautifully with the warmth of Kerry’s flower crown and bouquet. The oak leaves sing of late autumn; the berries and buds add texture. Kerry’s red lippy makes a bold statement of its own and she looks incredible! I LOVE this fearless bridal look!

Nerves, what nerves? They will soon disappear when you see your soulmate’s face light up the room!” Oh, Emma – what a wonderful piece of advice to give our readers! And what a beautiful bride you are…

Today’s wedding comes from Grittleton House, in Wiltshire. It’s a venue I’ve never featured before and I have fallen in love with the place, inside and out. Emma and Mark styled their elegant English wedding there with art deco touches, and the day was simply fabulous.

I love a wedding with something a little different… and so often it’s the venue which make a celebration stand out from the crowd. Kelsie Low is a creative wedding photographer – she used the tennis courts at Frinton Lawn Tennis Club for some images which will be lifelong memories for today’s bride and groom, the gorgeous Kelly and James.

English wedding blog from Frinton with Kelsie Low Photography (4)

Kelsie told me the ceremony took place at Saint Michael’s Parish Church in Thorpe-le-Soken and the reception at Frinton Lawn Tennis Club in Frinton-On-Sea. “The reception venue was decorated from top to bottom with charming little touches; bunting, floral glass centre pieces, movie-themed table names and even a light-up cake stand! The tennis courts were a really unique feature to have at a wedding venue and boy, did we make the most of them!”

English wedding blog from Frinton with Kelsie Low Photography (12)

“The morning of a Bride’s wedding is a lot busier than you may imagine it to be, a lot of hard work goes into ensuring that the bride feels beautiful on her wedding day, and with Hayley Loader of Ultra Violet on hair and Hayley Dauder of Timeless Beauty on makeup, Kelly really did look stunning.”

I love being asked to send calligraphy for styled photoshoots – my lettering has been to some wonderful places. I wish I could be there for every shoot, and especially when the locations are as luxurious as Hylands House!

Ayshea Goldberg had photographed our shoot there, so I asked her to introduce the venue to us:

Hylands House is a neo-classic building in the heart of Essex and set into formal gardens and parkland – the estate is also the setting for the annual V festival. Outside it’s very grand with impressive pillars and a sweeping driveway that looks fab with a classic car outside.

“Inside Hylands House is very opulent and grand with the centrepiece being the banqueting hall.  It’s full of gilt decor and original portraits – and has massive windows that open onto a gorgeous terrace with beautiful views of the park. Couples can marry in the drawing room and then celebrate in the banqueting hall – or for larger wedding parties there is a light and airy pavilion which is perfect for evening parties.

I’m a bit of a boy-girl… and make up isn’t my thing (although I do love an eyeliner flick…!) so when it comes to beauty advice I ask the experts. Clare Ardern has shared her top 10 tips for brides, to help you prepare and know what to expect on your wedding day. Enjoy! claire gould english wedding blog signature

These days there is a huge amount of makeup tutorials and top tips for application, but you want your morning to be as perfect as possible. Time and time again I get recommendations and thank yous from brides for keeping them so calm on a wedding morning, giving them some amazing memories with their mums and hens to start the big day. So, with this experience, I’m sharing with you my tips for a perfect wedding morning.

It’s the weekend, my lovelies! Let’s celebrate with our second ever wedding photo of the week – a bride and groom in a magical, natural world of their own – nature’s beauty all around them.

When it comes to personalising a wedding, Rhian and Kristofor had it nailed. Every element of their day reflected their personalities in a wonderfully rustic and home made celebration. Rhian told me their venue was a complete blank canvas which Honeybee’s Vintage Teas transformed into their dream space.

It’s a little while since we’ve published an outdoor wedding, but Rhian and Kris’s celebration was impossible to ignore. Their day is beautiful and it’s not only for the styling and the look of the wedding: I fell in love with their smiles. They’re just so delightfully happy, and the images are out of this world.

Do read the happy couple’s interview – it’s at the end of the blog feature. Their advice for the day itself is priceless: “Try to take time with your new husband to soak up the day, we spent the whole day with each other and loved that in all the madness we were together.”
