I love a wedding with a sense of humour, and Louise and Steve mix giggles (Cagney & Lacey?!) with gorgeousness (Louise & Steve!) beautifully. Their vintage emergency services wedding in Kent has the best transport I’ve seen yet: a 1960s police car and vintage red ambulance – the perfect way for a policeman and his paramedic bride to travel in style to their wedding!

There’s so much from today’s wedding I think is amazing… The handfasting ceremony (and that Louise and Steve kept the besom on display in their home for good luck); the lovely flowers, Louise’s sign for her Dad as they approached the aisle… and everything from the wonderful moments to the tiniest details was captured beautifully by Sarah Wayte Photography.

Louise told me they planned their budget carefully with a spreadsheet, and it paid off: “It was so satisfying paying the last supplier, we felt we could sit back and finally wait for the big day to arrive.” Together with their daughter Imogene they collected and crafted all of the lovely little details to pull together their wedding style, and the end result is just lovely!

I told you this week was all about the flowers… and today there’s more. I have the most amazing, luscious real wedding to share with you – and the flowers are out of this world! The lovely, beautiful Chloe and Mark were married at Wick Farm in Somerset, a lovely rural wedding venue with tons of character and English country charm.

Their flowers – by my wonderfully talented friend Claire at Garden & Wild – were in rich plum, aubergine and dusky pink colours with a rustic flavour and incorporated mosses and fern foliage to tie together the rustic theme. They’re such a fabulous style for a winter wedding, and Chloe told me, “Mark and I ADORED our flowers – Claire worked with us to really understand what we wanted and created the most stunning bouquets, buttonholes and table decorations. I would recommend her to everyone, a million times!

This week on the English Wedding Blog is unashamedly floral. It’s spring – what can I say?! Time to start thinking about summer wedding flowers… and oh, do I have something wonderful for you today! Girls – don’t limit flowers to your – well, to your flowers. Splash them on your dress, on your girls’ dresses, on your stationery… because flowers are going to be the biggest thing in weddings this year!

It must be such a wonderful thing to be a bridal fashion designer – creating those unique, once-in-a-lifetime kinds of dresses girls dream of from childhood! One name I’ve seen crop up on some of the more exclusive bridal couture oriented blogs is Britta Von Basedow, a new London couture designer on the bridal scene whose ‘Blanche’ collection launched at October’s Brides The Show.

I was quietly chuffed when the guys from Pennard House got in touch to show me their stunning news – because a) I love discovering new venues and b) when real artists get involved in their design and styling it’s pretty damn incredible… especially when someone like Frederick Wimsett is commissioned to paint on the walls!

The best venues are timeless and inspiring in their architecture and design. Think of some of our most magnificent venues with their grand portraits, chandeliers and sculptures. Those features will add atmosphere to your wedding photos for years and years… and now Pennard House has something pretty amazing and unique to offer brides and grooms too.

Frederick’s exquisitely handpainted murals will cover the walls of The Orchard Room at Pennard House – a newly renovated bedroom to be used as the bridal suite at one of our most exciting and historical wedding venues.

Nicola and Liam met – officially! – on a trip to Paris and tied the knot 10 years later in Manchester’s Castlefield Rooms. I love the venue they’ve chosen… chic and central, brilliant for guests to travel to and in my favourite English city. Their day is lovely, and the images from Paul Joseph Photography are the perfect complement for their city wedding – capturing the style and atmosphere of their day so wonderfully well.

Nicola told me their day had a slightly rustic English summer party theme. The venue was decorated with bunting and poms, and she arrived in style in a gorgeous campervan – which would always turn heads in the centre of Manchester!

As well as the gorgeous couple and fabulous images, there’s advice for you today: Nicola told me they enjoyed making things themselves – bunting, stationery and so on – but that it can get stressful closer to the wedding. There’s always a balance to be found between budgeting and time-saving, so do think carefully before you decide to DIY! Having said that… it all looks so beautiful!

I still remember a couple of words from my time spent living in Italy as a student* – E bellissima! Che bella! Lo amo… all of which apply to this divine Sicilian rustic inspired wedding styled shoot rather nicely!

I was thrilled to be asked to send some of my rustic wedding stationery to lovely stylist Lauradana Day of Wedding Creations UK. Lauradana is a rising star in the wedding industry, fuelled by her dedication to bespoke, handmade and meticulously crafted accessories and styling for brides all over the world – she’s worked on weddings in 18 different countries to date!

Lauradana also makes her own beautiful hand dyed silk ribbons, and I have just a few of these saved up for a rainy day to photograph in a mini styled shoot of my own… watch this space!

Writing a wedding blog is sometimes nothing more than a glorious excuse to share the sort of beautiful images I could just dive into. Today is pretty much a playday for me – I’m thrilled to be sharing a veritable feast of the most luscious flower photos by two wonderfully inventive Surrey wedding suppliers.

We’re talking delicate little shoes which look as though they’re made of leaves and petals… striking arrangements with corroding metals softened and made beautiful by the touch of a flower or three… fountains of flowers bursting from a woodland stream and insightful arrangements turning dark, wood-panelled rooms into charming and elegant spaces…

The awesomely-named Rebecca Tiller Floral Imaginarium, together with photographer Julie Anne Images, have created this showcase of floral design which has me blinking in delightful disbelief! I urge you to check them out… truly, they’re amazing!

A creative floral showcase with Rebecca Tiller Floral Imaginarium and Julie Anne Images Photography (2) I hope today’s feature will inspire you to get creative with your wedding flowers, or maybe (do!) get in touch with Julie Anne or Rebecca if you’re in the Surrey area.

I just don’t know where to begin… the fabulous details, tipis stuffed with flowers and lanterns and soft, warm lighting? Or maybe the charming outdoor ceremony and nervous excitement shining from today’s couple’s eyes… There’s just so much romance and rustic charm in today’s tipi wedding I’m dying to show you!

Mark and Chris planned their wedding in just 6 months, and saved money by recruiting friends and family to help out: “Where you can make things yourself or find someone to do it for you, do… it adds a real personal touch and it’s half the price.” This meant they could afford a fabulous venue, wedding planner and photographer… and I’m so thrilled they did!

Happy April everyone! Soon we’ll be enjoying warm summer days, sunny evenings and glorious outdoor living again – yay! I’m looking for lots of summer weddings to feature on the English Wedding Blog so tell your friends and suppliers to get those submissions rolling in! For today though… a wonderfully relaxed wedding in England’s very own garden county. Lianne and Neil married in Kent and styled their wedding around a garden party theme. It’s beautiful!

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.

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.
