If you read the blog on Monday you’ll know I was still feeling blissfully relaxed and spoilt after a wonderful weekend courtesy of The Wordsworth Hotel & Spa in Grasmere. Regular readers will know the Lake District is my home, and every other (sunny!) weekend I’m to be found with my guy wandering up and down the mountains here. So to be offered a relaxing break on a rainy Saturday in February was a dream come true – and while we couldn’t tick off any summits this weekend, we had the most amazing time exploring Grasmere and The Wordsworth so we could tell you all about the place here on English Wedding.
Today’s wedding sings of summer. If you’re missing those long, chilled out evenings and glorious rays then you’ll adore today’s summery celebrations! Let me introduce you to gorgeous bride and groom Verity and Adam, whose July wedding in Somerset is as perfect as can be – from the little details through to the amazing atmosphere of love and laughter captured so beautifully by our friend Warren at Howell Jones Photography.

Hey beautiful! How was your weekend? We were treated to the loveliest day on Saturday by the team at The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, in the Lake District. I’m feeling so refreshed and at peace after a blissful weekend! More about that on Wednesday – we’ll be publishing a full review of our weekend then. Today though, we head for another stunning English mansion, with a wonderfully spring like wedding inspiration shoot from Clissold Park Mansions, just outside of London.
Happy Sunday, beautiful! How’s your weekend going? I forgot to tell you – we spent last night at The Wordsworth in Grasmere, a gorgeous spot for a wedding – so waking up this morning was absolute bliss! I’ll tell you all about it later in the week 🙂 For today though, something VERY special. We’ve been chatting to the wedding & events team at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford recently – it’s a breathtaking and wonderfully unique wedding venue with a stunning balance of contemporary architecture and historic backdrops – half a million years of art and history, to be precise! Today we’re sharing a bridal photoshoot at the Ashmolean, so you can see the place for yourselves… isn’t it incredible?!

Most of us will have experienced the joys of an English summer festival; whether it’s on a huge scale like Glastonbury or a low-key local affair, we can all relate to lying back on the warm grass with a cool pint of something by our sides as the tunes drift over the crowds, stirring memories or awakening moods within us. Or perhaps it’s more a case of trying to stay upright in the torrential rain and mud as our friends fall about laughing at our efforts… either way, the festival vibe is something dear to many of us and evokes powerful feelings of friendship, togetherness, of finding your tribe and one heck of a party.
