A fabulous snippet of advice from today’s couple: “We did as much as we could ourselves and kept things as simple as possible so that we could spend more on the things we knew we would be able to keep forever.”… and one of the best tips I’ve heard in my years as a wedding blogger. Nina and Alex are officially awesome! Oh, and they’re a beautiful couple too…

English garden wedding in Chelmsford with images by Terri Pashley Photography (17)

Once again The Wedding Shop in Colchester gets a great review on the blog – and when you see how amazing Nina looks it’s obvious why! (I love reading great things about wedding suppliers, it makes me so happy for our little industry!) She accessorised with her Grandmother’s pearls wrapped around her wrist, and champagne satin peep toe shoes by Karen Millen… and she looks so elegant and beautiful.

Another fantastic idea for other couples is Alex’s speech: he didn’t want to stand up and make a speech (and I’m totally in agreement that you shouldn’t do anything you won’t look forward to on the day!) so he made a video which went down a storm with guests… and meant he could relax and enjoy it too.

I can imagine today’s beautiful bride and gorgeous groom hand-delivering invites on their bicycles… probably because of the charming, quirky bicycle table plan and their thrifty tips for saving on postage! Danielle and Danny are fantastic: full of ideas and inspiring advice, and I know you’ll adore their wedding.

Real wedding at Rookery Hall with images by Liverpool wedding photographer David Walters (18)

The venue is Cheshire’s fabulous Rookery Hall; the images are by Liverpool wedding photographer David Walters. Highlights of today’s real wedding include a divine bouquet with hydrangeas and lots of lush greenery. I adore the portrait images in the grounds of Rookery Hall and the rustic touches Danny and Danielle added to personalise the venue.

Campervans are the best wedding transport, I think! I adore Chrissy and Peter’s wedding because they travelled in style… and their entire day is so personal and creative. Chrissy told me it’s great to think creatively about the little details: when buying name tags, for example, just buy what you really like – even if it doesn’t say ‘wedding’ on the box!

Real wedding in Berkshire with images by Hannah McClune on the English Wedding Blog (12)

Their Berkshire wedding is just lovely, and this stylish and gorgeous couple have so many brilliant ideas to share. I adore their pastel colour combinations – and the flowers are out of this world. Chrissy “wanted them to look like they had been picked like when you go for a walk! A bit rustic and natural” and Kaye Stallwood made her perfect bouquet, which I love!

I’m totally lost for where to start with today’s gorgeous theatre wedding… there’s so much to show you and so many things I’d like to say I LOVE…

Yorkshire wedding Lyceum theatre and crucible with Tierney Photography (14)

Lara and Andrew got married in Sheffield on a bit of a venue-hopping-spree complete with vintage bus. Their images from the Lyceum theatre bowled me over, and then I saw the Crucible photos, and pics of the bus, and well… I was hooked.

Yorkshire wedding Lyceum theatre and crucible with Tierney Photography (26)

Lara is that knock-me-down-with-a-feather kind of beautiful and Andrew just looks super handsome. Their colours are inspiring for a winter wedding: bright yellows and blues give the kind of colour pop which really makes a contemporary wedding.

Hello there beautiful blog readers. How has your week been? I’ve had the loveliest time writing the English Wedding Blog this week, and with submissions from some of my favourite photographers waiting in the wings, I know April is going to be an amazing month too. For today though, I have a very special sneak peek for you as top British bridal designer Sassi Holford unveils her 2015 Savoy Collection. The gowns are divine, combining delicate European fabrics, imaginative beaded florals and romantic embroidery for soft impact and femininity. These beautiful designer wedding dresses are individually handmade to order in Somerset, and exclusive to Sassi Holford London.

A few weeks ago I fell head over heels in love with My Fayre Favourite: real vintage accessories given new life by designer Charlotte, and sold worldwide in her Etsy shop. I’m sooo thrilled to be able to show you her beautiful one-off designs as part of a gorgeous and inspiring vintage shoot at Sprivers Mansion in Kent.

I’m sure most of you will have an idea how you’ll wear your hair a long time before the big day comes around: from the first dress fitting you’ll picture how your locks will look… or at least imagine yourself as the gorgeous boho bride with loose locks, or the elegant vintage girl with fabulous curls and lippy to match… right?

So I expect you’ll also have chatted to your hairstylist in plenty of time before the big day. (Could any girl not talk about the wedding in a routine hair appointment?! I know I’ve spent hours talking to my hairdresser about her sister’s wedding!) Maybe you’ve already booked your pre-wedding hair appointments and trials, or maybe you need some advice before you do… so here’s some expert help!

Hey everyone! Would you like to help me with a discussion coming up on the English Wedding Blog soon? I’m asking for your thoughts on exclusivity… brides, suppliers, other wedding bloggers I would love to hear from you all!

Neoclassical wedding styled shoot by Petra Opperman with Matthew Bishop Photography (4)

My question: should wedding blogs ask for exclusivity for styled shoots and real weddings? How long for?

Exclusivity for wedding blogs

Every wedding blogger wants their blog to stand out from the crowd, and being able to publish gorgeous shoots before anyone else is key to that. If two blogs published the same shoot within a week it wouldn’t look so good…

Neoclassical wedding styled shoot by Petra Opperman with Matthew Bishop Photography (3)

Features across more blogs for wedding suppliers

I’m a calligrapher as well as a wedding blogger, and I’m often asked to write place names and bespoke stationery for styled wedding shoots. I love seeing those shoots featured as widely as they possibly can be… the more blogs feature a shoot, the better the publicity for every supplier involved.

I love a Pixies wedding… there will always be those ‘wow’ photographs – and for Steven and Sara there were so many. Today’s real wedding on the blog is a fun celebration full of brilliant ideas. Sara wears a Stella York gown, and Steven’s Next suit looks perfect… they’re a fab couple, as creative as they are gorgeous and I know you’ll adore their wedding!

Real wedding blog at Abbeywood Estate with Pixies in the Cellar Photography (5)

My favourite idea from their wedding is the table plan, accompanied by polaroid pics of every guest with the instruction to “Find You”! – I love this! And there’s so much more… the jenga guest book, wedding signpost, the amazing flowers and glorious portraits taken in woodland at Abbeywood Estate.

Kate and Chris’s wedding is divine: a luxury summer celebration with fabulous white hydrangeas and a marquee reception at Kate’s parents’ farm. It’s beautiful: Kate told me they had lots of help from their families to plan and style the perfect day… and oh, didn’t they just!

white hydrangea wedding with Samantha Jane Photography (2)

The white hydrangeas make a bold statement; Kate’s bouquet is gorgeous. The images are wonderful – Samantha Jane Photography gets a glowing review from the happy couple. “We thought the photos were amazing and really told the story of the day, capturing moments that myself and my husband didn’t always get to see.

What could be lovelier for a Sunday afternoon than a screen full of glorious wedding cakes?! Discover the top trends for 2015 in this enlightening article written especially for us by Carolyn, wedding coordinator from our sponsor The Pavilion at Lane End. I hope you find it really useful… I’ve really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful cake pics!

claire gould calligrapher signaturewedding cakes for 2015 The Pavilion Lane End (1)

Hello there!

I recently had the rare opportunity to bend the ear and pick the brain of a top class wedding cake designer who displayed some of her wonderful creations at one of our recent Wedding Open Days. It was too good an opportunity to miss, so I just delved in and got it from the horse’s mouth – this year’s top trends.

Soft pastels

Soft pastels are definitely an in-demand colour for weddings in 2015. Think soft lemon, pearl, pistachio, orchid tint. Looking at cakes on Pinterest, one idea that seems to be quite popular is choosing a different shade for each layer, creating a wedding cake with a colour gradient from light to dark.

Ian and Rose used family heirloom fabrics as one of the key themes of their wedding at Manchester Art Gallery. I love their wedding all the more for those really personal touches: today’s bride and groom use their family history as inspiration, and it’s amazing.

  • Warmest welcomes to lovely @elegantebymichellej who has joined English Wedding this week. We'll introduce the lovely lady and tell you all about her innumerable talents and wedding skills next Friday... but for now, know she's the loveliest, most knowledgeable, brilliantest UK & destination wedding planner - and you can check her out at elegantebymichellej.com⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PS - top tip - when a wedding planner gets in touch, I always check if they're a member of @theukawp - it's a HUGE tick for me if they are! UKAWP membership means a LOT - and I'm delighted to say Michelle is a professional member of the UKAWP (UK Alliance of Wedding Planners)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
