Good morning, beautiful. Would you like a little sunshine on your screen this morning? You’re welcome. And I have a whole lot of amazing images of a beautiful bride and groom to share with you too, so grab a cuppa and nestle into a cushion to enjoy Fiona and Mark’s wonderful Wiltshire wedding.

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.

So here’s a crazy thing: a collection of some of the most AMAZING wedding photos I’ve seen all year, from a couple who told me, “Most of our guests didn’t realise we had a photographer, which is how Colin [of Colin Nicholls Photography] manages to get such beautiful, natural shots.

Today’s real wedding comes from the beautiful Hertfordshire wedding venue Loudwater Farm – another wonderful thing I’ve somehow managed to never feature on the English Wedding Blog before. And so it sort of feels as though my Christmas has come early.

Jess and Joe are both gorgeous. Their wedding is perfect – it’s one of my favourites of 2015 (which I’ll be sharing in a special feature in January). DIY was a major part of their day, and Jess told me “My mum was an absolute hero and took charge of the homemade elements. She loves crafts, and gave us so many good ideas for decoration, as well as making it all!” But the homemade side of this wedding goes above and beyond: Joe even brewed most of the beer! How awesome is that?!!

Today’s real wedding comes a little later than planned: I’ve been excitedly waiting to share this with you after its original publication on Juno & Joy. It’s a wonderfully light and pretty wedding from Windsor, with the most delicate florals and stunning portraits… and the most gorgeous and lovely couple you could meet.

Calligraphy isn’t as expensive as you’d think; there are many creative ways to inject a little lettering into your wedding without breaking the bank. It’s not uber formal either: if your wedding is intimate and relaxed, you can style your wedding with little touches of modern calligraphy: signs and quotes are just one way to do this.

Calligraphy quotes have been one of my best selling items this year – I’ve written everything from song lyrics to wedding vows to traditional poems. The best thing about wedding quotes is they can be framed and kept forever on your walls at home as a reminder of your day.

Morning my lovelies! Who’s excited about Christmas?!… if you’re breaking up today I hope you have a really good last day at work! Here’s a wonderful, glamorous wedding to brighten your morning.

Sarah’s dress has real wow factor – she told me it was most definitely ‘the one’! It’s certainly a perfect fit for such a fabulous venue. You’ll adore this wedding: the details are glamorous, fusing tradition and modern style like magic. The images are divine. Enjoy!

Their images are just wonderful… I’m so glad this gorgeous couple decided in the end to have a professional photographer shoot their day, as are they: “We were going to go for an amateur but looking back, we would have totally regretted it! Sandy – Bristol wedding photographer Love in Focus – was fantastic. On the day, he went above and beyond. He bought stilts so that he could get shots from above, which all the guests enjoyed! The photos reflected the day beautifully.”

Wedding blog at Laughern Hall with Love in Focus Photography (33)

I asked about homemade details and Megan and Adam told me they’d been pretty busy in the run up to the wedding! “We made table signs, painted vases, made wedding favours, bought and cut hessian, bought fairy lights… we made lots of the stuff… it was stressful but worth it. Everyone has commented on how individual it was and how it really reflected us.”

FEATURED

I hear so many opinions about wedding blogs, ranging quite fascinatingly from good to bad to even worse. Blogs are powerful; they can make a wedding business (and in at least one instance, have had the occasion to break one). And their influence on brides and grooms, on wedding trends and even spending habits, is pretty strong.

It’s something I try really hard to be aware of. I try never to push ideas onto readers: styling a wedding and finding suppliers should be all about personal choice. I can share things I love, suggest suppliers I admire, but I’d never say you ‘need’ anything for your wedding which is really only optional.

I love wedding blogs.

I think they’re a harmless dose of pretty, a relaxing and enjoyable read with extra eye candy, and often feature superb advice from real couples alongside expert tips from the loveliest wedding suppliers. They’re a beautiful and helpful place to be!

FEATURED

David and Becks are a wonderful couple. It’s a rare treat to have a groom’s interview on the blog, and David gives some amazing advice. You all know I adore intimate weddings and a relaxed approach to planning, so I was thrilled when these gorgeous folks landed in my inbox. Everything about their day is perfect for the English Wedding Blog!

A real wedding blog at Verzon House by Hayley Baxter Photography (21)

David told me “Pretty much everything other than the photographer and the venue was done by our friends and family, particularly Becks’ mum who could have 50 different careers if she wished, she did all the flowers, the table dressings and the bunting amongst other things.”

A real wedding blog at Verzon House by Hayley Baxter Photography (41)

Our beautiful bride and gorgeous groom planned their day together from the start. They spent on the important things: such as their fab Leeds wedding photographer Hayley Baxter, and saved elsewhere. David advises other couples to, “make sure you save money in the right places… ditch the fussy stuff and spend a bit on the important things that will make sure your guests have a fab time!

I was lost for words when I saw today’s incredibly beautiful shoot. It doesn’t happen often. 😉 A few elements combined can really make your wedding – and today we’re going to show you how British flowers, a strong bridal look and graceful bridalwear will transform your day. The key: trust in your suppliers. They’re designers, creatives, and artists in their respective fields.

Good morning my beautiful blog readers! It’s been a heady whirl of technical wizardry here at English Wedding Blog HQ this morning… and I’m thrilled I can finally bring you today’s real Welsh wedding! James and Sarah’s day is more than beautiful. It’s full of ideas for the most amazing summer wedding flowers, and delicate DIY touches which bring the theme together with such amazing character and style.

September wedding Ebristock Boat Inn on the English Wedding Blog (23)

I adore the flowers. Sarah told me “I put complete faith in Laura and her team to deliver on the day and the end result was so beautiful! I still can’t believe how amazing they were when they only had my description to go on. I am so grateful to everyone there… I knew I wanted sunflowers and daisies and a lot of different, warm colours. I didn’t want a colour theme for the wedding to help it look more rustic and ‘oldy-worldy’. I also explained to Laura that I wanted the flowers to look like they had been ‘handpicked from an Autumn country garden’ and I think she really delivered on this.”

Who missed storm Desmond last week? Oh, you lucky things! I heard some heartbreaking stories and in contrast some really uplifting tales of heroes in floods (Gareth from Aqua Salon – I’m talking about you!) – and one fabulous story of a wedding which came together against all the odds. This week I’ve been thinking about rain on your wedding day. I know a lot of brides really worry: equally I see some incredibly beautiful images on my Facebook feed (and there were LOTS last weekend!) – so I wanted to share some tips to reassure you all. I asked my recommended suppliers and blog sponsors for their best advice.

Bristol wedding photographer Sandy at Love In Focus:

1. Plan for rain – just in case!

Everyone hopes for good weather on their wedding day but unfortunately there really is nothing you can do about the weather! The good news is that rain doesn’t have to spoil your day if you plan for it and can even make for some really beautiful shots. Don’t worry about your photographer, professional camera equipment is weather sealed and clothes dry!

Happy Sunday morning my lovely! I have something extraordinarily special for you this morning: a beautiful real wedding from Lancashire’s Eaves Hall. Gorgeous couple Stephanie and Lyle were married there, and I have a delicious selection of images from their day to share with you.

Eaves Hall Lancashire wedding blog Andrew Keher Photography (30)

There’s more than just gorgeous images and fabulous details though. Stephanie shares some brilliant advice with us all today – for starters, “I would recommend that all future brides go to a wedding fair early on… I went when everything was pretty much booked. It would have saved me a lot of time and research because it was amazing and everything was in one place!

Eaves Hall Lancashire wedding blog Andrew Keher Photography (43)

The beautiful bride told me Eaves Hall is “traditionally beautiful and combines the old with the new so we could have got away with doing nothing. That’s not us though… we had drapes from the chandeliers, a fairly lit back drop, a LOVE light up sign, sweet cart, post box and our own personal touches…” Do read Stephanie and Lyle’s English Wedding Blog interview at the end of the feature to find out more!
