I am in awe of today’s feature bridal collection by renowned London designer Phillipa Lepley. These beautifully tailored, bespoke one-of-a-kind luxury wedding dresses are to die for – perhaps not within the average dress budget (take note before you fall in love with one of these, my lovelies!) but oh so dreamy to see and admire the intricate detailing and beautiful craftsmanship in every wedding dress. Admittedly these are the kind of dresses you’re more likely to see in Hello! than in You & Your Wedding… but I simply couldn’t resist sharing this with you and I hope you enjoy a little wedding indulgence with me today!
Reportage wedding photography has my heart. In the 10 years since English Wedding began I’ve seen thousands of weddings. They all have a story, they’re all personal and unique and beautiful. And the images which capture the spirit and story of a wedding are the images which will stand the test of time. Always.
So it’s with genuine pleasure that I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite reportage wedding photographers in the UK. Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall specialises in reportage photography (otherwise known as documentary wedding photography, or wedding photojournalism) – his website is a brilliant place to go to see what reportage wedding photography is all about.
Happy Thursday, beautiful! Hasn’t January flown by… we’ve been super busy here at English Wedding HQ with lots of enquiries about our new wedding invitations and calligraphy service! Before the month is out, I wanted to share a quick reminder of some of our favourites – these are absolutely perfect for boho weddings, rustic and relaxed celebrations with an elegant twist.
All of our invitations to date are on display in our Etsy shop, and I’d love for you to take a look and let me know which ones you love best! Meanwhile I’m working on a batch of brand new wedding stationery designs which we’re launching at Askham Hall in February. Exciting!!!
Belvoir Castle near Grantham is a beautiful Regency Castle in the heart of England with breathtaking landscaped grounds.

It really is an incredible venue to host your wedding.
