Eeeek! Here’s an exciting wedding for you to see – it’s in a windmill! Tuxford windmill is the last working windmill in Nottinghamshire, and had never been used as a wedding venue before. Today’s fabulous, wonderful, amazing couple Rebecca and Sam wanted to do something new, and so they chose this awesome location for their reception.

They made the very most of the windmill for their wedding reception after getting married at East Markham parish church. After the church service, the happy couple hopped on the back of a tractor and headed for their windmill – I love saying that! – for the reception…

Sam and Rebecca used local produce including the windmill’s own products – check out the wedding favours, for example. They used beautiful bright colours to decorate a marquee by the windmill, with the loveliest bunting, mismatched vintage china plates and glorious summer flowers.

Tim and Jummy’s Kent wedding is gorgeous… they describe it as a festival of colour and it really is! The beautiful bride’s bouquet is the brightest of yellows, there are sunny accents throughout, and Jummy told me that rather than sticking to a particular colour she knew their Nigerian relatives would bring bright colours to the day so they chose to embrace that with colourful and eclectic styling!

festival wedding in Kent blog (1)

I smiled to read Jummy’s tip about the ‘magical spreadsheet’ they used to plan their day – in itself becoming a family heirloom as every engaged couple finds it invaluable! Another top tip I love this couple for is their advice to use local suppliers as much as possible. Supporting independent businesses is important, especially when it comes to weddings.  The flowers, cake and catering were just some of the highlights of a magical day.

I shared a comment from today’s bride Sam on facebook a couple of weeks ago – I absolutely couldn’t resist: I love a good love story, don’t you?! Back in 2006 Sam was travelling with a friend in New Zealand, and happened to meet Huw there. When her friend returned home, Sam told me “I decided to stay and spent three of the most amazing months of my life travelling around New Zealand with a man I had just met – I think my friends and family thought I was slightly crazy!” Luckily Huw was from England and lived only half an hour away from Sam… and they stayed together and were married a few years later.

Did I mention their wedding is beeeaautiful?! Sam’s mum made her wedding dress; Sam made all of their gorgeous stationery; and – possibly the best story of all – Sam’s dad went to bead jewellery-making classes, learned how to make a headpiece and made Sam and her bridesmaids beautiful hair accessories for the big day!

Hello everyone! Did you see Deborah and Darren’s elegant art gallery wedding last week? I loved the bride’s style – her Anoushka G vintage lace dress was beautifully accessorised with a pearl bracelet and clutch. Deborah chose classic and simple jewellery to complement a statement dress, as so many UK brides are doing this year – and if you haven’t bought your bridal jewellery yet, then I have the perfect solution for you today!

Hello lovely! Did you spot the beautiful Cheshire countryside wedding I featured with tipis and a rustic theme last week? Tom and Rebecca’s day really caught my eye and I loved their alternative wedding table plan made from little pots of herbs on hay bales. (See the wedding here – images by lovely Jill Thorning-Jensen Photography.) I couldn’t resist seeing what else was out there for couples using herbs to style their wedding – and I hope you love these ideas as much as I do!

Ross and Celine celebrated their marriage with their closest friends and family – including seventeen children(!) at The Merchants’ Hall in Edinburgh. I adore Celine’s style: she wears a bespoke wedding dress by Zeman Couture – there’s a long story behind it, but it’s one of the loveliest short wedding dresses I’ve ever seen!

Merchants Hall wedding blog (1)The day is just lovely; the images exquisite thanks to wedding photographer Mark Pacura; the venue spectacular.

Celine and Ross have very kindly shared their wedding report with us all on the English Wedding Blog and I’m delighted to feature them as today’s star bride and groom. Oh!

They want their customers to be as passionate about their wedding stationery products as they are – and with consistent quality, comfortable pricing and beautiful design throughout each collection, their dedication to their family business shines through.

Here are ten of their pretty wedding invitations for 2014’s most popular wedding styles and themes. Buy online at www.oliviasamuel.co.uk

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great week and you’re looking forward to a brilliant weekend! I have something very different to share with you today – the kind of thing which will be easier to watch at home than at work – because you’ll need the volume turned up, and you’ll giggle a LOT! This is awesome. Thanks to James at Funky Pixel Photography for sharing!

Nina and Adrian’s wedding was a wonderful and emotional day. They got married at The Garrison Church in Brompton, followed by their reception at the stunning Bradbourne House in Kent. Nina explains, “The story goes I sent bek a YouTube link to a wedding rap to an Eminem song. It was a bit lame and cheesy and I thought it would make her laugh. I said before the link “do you take requests?” Entirely in jest and not expecting a rap at all!

The DJ worked with Rebecca to pull off the speech of a lifetime! “Rebecca felt that she needed to lift the spirits of the room after the main speeches by performing a well  rehearsed piece.

The elegance of Deborah and Darren’s wedding is striking, the style exquisite. Today’s beautiful bride and handsome groom created a wedding day which was both luxurious and personal: when I read their wedding report I was blown away – they’ve provided the best list of suppliers (so any Warwickshire brides and grooms should really check this out!) – but my favourite part was this:

vintage art gallery wedding blog  (1)

“Bride’s wedding transport – Jaguar Mk II from Banbury Wedding Cars
Groom’s wedding transport – 1966 VW Split Screen Camper van (Groom’s own)”

How adorable is the face on that little camper? Hehe. Of course there’s far more to this vintage art gallery wedding than the cars – Deborah is stunningly beautiful in her Anoushka G lace back dress. The couple’s son and daughter – only 7 and 4 – were the stars of the show, playing a really important part in the ceremony and bringing tears to the eyes of wedding guests. Do read the wedding report at the end of the feature, you will love it!

Jayne and Glen’s wedding is full of English country charm, and its setting in the impressive tithe barn at Browsholme Hall in Lancashire is wonderful. The gorgeous couple poured their hearts and souls into crafting a beautifully homespun theme with stamps, kraft cards and hessian string – and the overall effect is fantastic.

The wedding flowers are a highlight – with help from a local farm selling buckets of flowers for DIY brides, Jayne’s friend Alison styled the beautiful bridal and bridesmaid bouquets to perfectly fit the style of their day.

  • Groom's view - the best things about marriage: "Looking at my ring finger every day to see the ring and what it means to us. Being able to introduce Rowena as my Wife as opposed to the girlfriend! Having the lady that I fell in love with at pretty much first glance now being my wife. Coming home after work and just talking to one another spending time as a three with our 3 and a half year old daughter."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
