Hey lovelies! Are you thinking about a farm wedding? They’re becoming super popular as we all look to cut costs and the whole rustic trend still has our hearts. Oh, and of course a barn wedding will save £££ compared to a stately home or country mansion ‘do’! So today I have the loveliest farm wedding style feature to share with you. Images are by Tom Cullen Photography, with flowers by the fabulous Jo at Eliza Rose Artisan Floral Design in Loose.

The secret to styling a beautiful farm or barn wedding is to really embrace the vibe of the place. Little Fant Farm is a heritage cottage farm tucked away in the Kent countryside. The wooden sides of the barn give a warm look to the place; the shoot includes rural craft details and the styling of our bride’s dress with the beautiful embroidery just fits in perfectly. Hay bales are the cherry on a rather stunning cake… speaking of which, look at this STUNNING cake!

Hey lovely! Thank you so much for coming back to English Wedding. I just know you’ll adore today’s feature, with beautiful bride Julia and her gorgeous new husband Joe celebrating their marriage at Shiplake College, Henley on Thames. They’re a fabulous, fun couple whose wedding is full of personality – from their first look (the photos are just wonderful!) to the floral styling around the venue. Images are by my lovely friend Ayshea Goldberg Photography, who gets such a fantastic review from the happy couple.

We came across Ayshea’s website while browsing online and really liked her style of photos.

Ayshea was a pleasure to work with! From the moment we met her, we knew we wanted her to be our photographer – she was professional but also fun and relaxed, and put us at ease immediately. She was great on the wedding day – she helped calm any nerves and was unobtrusive the whole time but captured the day perfectly.

I have such a treat for you today, lovely! We’re filling the blog with beautiful yellow blooms and fabulous city wedding styling ideas from lovely By Chenai and Amanda Karen Photography. The dresses by Monique Lhuillier and Viktor & Rolf (from Browns Bride) are breathtaking – and the fabric backdrops just divine. I hope you love this as much as I do: I will leave you with lovely Chenai who explains her ideas so beautifully.

I teamed up with Prince Phillip House (3 Carlton House) in London’s St James area to style a mini shoot that would tell the story of a city summer wedding in London.

Working with Amanda Karen Photography and Browns Bride of London (who gave us a Fall 2019 Monique Lhuillier structured ‘Everest’ gown and Viktor & Rolf Fall 2019 gown) we wanted to tell 2 stories against the quite traditional background of the building.

We all have a favourite season – right now mine is summer, but I’ll admit: I have a new favourite at LEAST four times a year. Right now – I’m all about springtime. Cherry blossom, buds and new life appearing … and the dream of spring sunshine. So for those of you planning a spring wedding, or if you just adore the spring season, today’s feature will bring joy to your heart.

With images by the rather fabulous Chloe Ely Photography, Blossoming Beauty focuses on an emergence of beauty from an ethereal, sleepy background of winter. It juxtaposes minimalism with fine art, providing artistic inspiration for the discerning bride with an eye for detail.

With thoughtful, beautiful styling by Sarah Shuttle at Barton Court and delicate spring flowers from Hannah Lauren, the shoot evokes spring in the gentlest, most glorious way. The colours and tones on F & H Country Cakes‘ wedding cake are just out of this world!

For some of the dreamiest wedding dresses around, look no further than Australian bridal designer Anna Campbell. Anna’s dresses – available from selected UK stockists – shine with a uniquely beautiful style we LOVE here at English Wedding!

Anna’s latest collection – Lumière – features signature custom embroidered laces and exclusive embellishments – and showstopping alternative wedding styles for the more daring bride.  The sparkling Indigo Dress is created from a tulle fabric delicately hand-beaded with thousands of sparkling glass and pearl toned beads in a botanic inspired placement. The Indigo dress exudes luxurious glamour, with the option for brides to choose a jaw dropping bishop sleeve for added drama.

This collection was inspired by the play of light through sheer laces and delicate tulles, draping sleeves, and expressive silhouettes. I loved experimenting with the way that our embellishments sparkle when they catch light and the subtle suggestion of sheerness through layering laces”, says designer Anna Campbell.

I stumbled across Belle & Bunty‘s instagram the other day: a haven for sassy brides looking to avoid the ‘delicate flower’ bridal style and embrace something more relaxed and fashion-aware: dare I say ballsy?

Put it this way: There’s absolutely no reason why you can’t find a wedding outfit that feels like YOU. No need to change your style because the wedding industry wants you in a corseted bodice / trailing gown / fitted white lace wotsit. And if you’re also looking for an eco-aware brand with genuine ethics and a commitment to sustainability, girl you are in the right place! Belle & Bunty’s gorgeous dresses can even be made in vegan fabrics… which ticks every little box for me.

Inspired by country glamour and the Nashville, Tennessee music scene, Belle & Bunty’s ‘Islands in the Stream’ is the latest collection by design duo Belle & Bunty. From its humble roots around the campfire to the glitz and glamour of its biggest stars performing at the iconic Grand Ol Opry country music venue, this collection pays homage to those heartfelt love songs that beckon the great outdoors and the powerful independent women that wander across them.

It’s almost the weekend and we have another gorgeous wedding to share with you – this time, sent in by my lovely friends at The Little Paper Shop in Cheshire! I can’t introduce this blog post without plugging my modern calligraphy classes at this gorgeous wedding & paper boutique – it’s in Nantwich, and I’ll be there on the 7th of September for beginners modern calligraphy and brush pen lettering workshops – come and join me if you can!

Now as well as being the creative whirlwind and owner of The Little Paper Shop, Cara is a talented wedding photographer. She captured Liz and Andrew’s Shropshire wedding for them, and I’m thrilled to be sharing it with you today!

Liz is just beautiful in her Essense of Australia wedding gown, which she found at Shropshire Country Brides. Despite a few dress wobbles in the run up to the wedding, Liz stuck with her choice and we LOVE how beautifully this dress works on her – it was meant to be for this stunning bride!

So we’re more than halfway through the week (yay!) and I have something really unique and different to share with you. It’s a fun Tipi styled shoot, playing off the ‘bringing the outside in’ trend, with a twist. This unconventional wedding look was created and styled by the rather fabulous Florence & Vera at Cotswold Field of Dreams and planned by the folks at Timber and Canvas. The images are by lovely Elena Popa Photography, a Surrey wedding photographer who loves to work with creative, non-traditional couples! The shoot is beautifully styled, featuring peacock chairs, bridal trousers and a super fun removable train.

“What we wanted to do is take the ‘wild’, and really see how creative we can be with it. We imaged the truly unconventional bride, looking to get away from the formality and restrictions that can sometimes be felt in a wedding, and looking to create a day for people to truly have fun!

Our midweek wedding is a blissful, breathtaking, glorious celebration of love at Nottingham’s Carriage Hall. Stephanie and Peter were married in April, which they chose as a time of new beginnings – and the perfect month to start their married life! The lovely couple always knew they wanted a humanist wedding ceremony: “Humanism celebrates the idea that we have one life to lead, so we need to live it in the here and now, that we need to make the most of life’s beauty and riches every day; it focuses on the goodness of humanity and community, family and friends; and the importance of love.

“We worked with a wonderful celebrant, Laurie Cohen, to write a ceremony that was completely unique and personal to us. Working with a Humanist celebrant allowed us to reflect back on our relationship and really think about why we wanted to get married. It was a really lovely process and probably one of the most fun parts of planning the wedding!

Did you see yesterday’s elopement inspiration feature? (check it out here) I mentioned one of my best friends eloped last week: I’m so thrilled for her and her husband! And I have to confess, if me and my guy were to tie the knot, we’d elope. Because I just love the romance of it all: the escape, the shared secret, the adventure. So I wanted to write a little something to inspire all of you considering an elopement.

I can’t think of anyone better to help with this feature than lovely friend and sponsor of English Wedding, Emily Black Photography. I randomly spotted on instagram the other week that Emily had eloped: 6 years ago, she and her hubby tied the knot in Italy. Emily seems to have set a trend: in the last few years, elopements have become more and more popular, so I asked her to tell me a little of her story.

So you want to give your wedding guests the fabulously fun treat of a photo booth – and you want yours to be just a little bit unique and interesting: a different wedding photo booth from the ones you’ve seen before.

I get it. Photo booths are almost a must-have at weddings these days: we haven’t lost the ability to entertain ourselves by taking photos and pulling faces / dressing up… there’s a five year old in everyone! But as with everything wedding, we NEED to differentiate.

Can you DIY a wedding photo booth?

Well – yeah, you can! And if you don’t overthink it, it’s pretty easy these days. There are tutorials on One Fab Day and A Practical Wedding which give great advice and are chock full of ideas. But to be fair, there are simpler ways to DIY your wedding photo booth if you’re on a budget.
