A rustic, messy winter bouquet with succulents and mixed colours, roses, seedheads, berries and lots of lush green leaves… A beautiful bride in a simple, straight gown with lace detailing and a shrug to stave off winter’s bite… A handsome groom wearing a Proper Suit (and I mean – awesome styling!) and quirky bow tie… and one of East Sussex’s most charming wedding venues.

I’m delighted to share with you the brand new wedding dress collection from BHLDN – here are my personal favourite picks from over 30 new gowns in the collection, which is available to buy online.

Spring wedding dresses by BHLDN (1)

You’ll adore the stunning creative images shot in Mexico (OK so usually I feature shoots from England… but it’s January, I needed the escape!) where BHLDN’s creative concept of “The Painted Garden” is brought to life by model Vlada Roslyakova dressed in ethereal looks that mirror the whimsical nature of her surroundings.

Spring wedding dresses by BHLDN (9)

Whether it be with sheer elements like illusion necks and backs, intricate back details, extra fine lace or voluminous trains, each gown is unique in its effortless ability to capture your attention despite the overwhelming beauty of the vibrant colors, rich textures and natural sunlight of the gardens. Accessories are not long forgotten as floral headpieces, sparkling bridal jewellery and delicate wedding shoes add an extra element of elegance to every image.

Jake and Victoria are a cool, great-looking and stylish couple with infectious smiles and a sense of fun! Their October wedding is full of sunshine – and oh, those sunflowers are just delicious aren’t they?!

Wedding blog at The Green, Cornwall by Evolve Photography (18)

They married at The Green in Cornwall (on the edge of Bodmin moor) and took inspiration from country weddings and 1920s styling for their reception. It all looks fabulous. Special mention for the adorable cat table numbers (awwww!) and Victoria’s Dad’s help with the wellies and flowers which inspired their day.

Wedding blog at The Green, Cornwall by Evolve Photography (44)

My favourite touch for this wedding is the dress. So, so beautiful… and yet it wasn’t love at first sight for this one-off original vintage dress. Victoria told me at first “the dress was dirty, had a hole in it and the beading was falling off. But, it was a handmade original 1920s net dress with the most beautiful beading on it and that’s what I fell in love with…” Read the wedding report at the end of today’s post to find out how she managed to restore it so beautifully.

Hey everyone! I have a diary date for you today: with love from PapaKata, who I introduced on the English Wedding Blog on Sunday. They’re holding their spring open weekend in March and I can thoroughly recommend you go along – it will be amaaaazing! Once you’ve set foot in a PapaKata teepee or Sperry tent you’ll fall in love, I promise!

papakata uk wedding teepeesPop along on the 21st or the 22nd, from 1oam until 4pm. The event will be held at Escrick Park, which is only 5 minutes from York. You’ll soon spot PapaKata’s giant teepees and Sperry tents – and they’ll be beautifully decorated with some of the loveliest details you’d expect to see at this year’s trendiest weddings.

The rustic, botanical styling which stole our hearts in 2014 will be big again in 2015, and I wanted to show you these gorgeous images from PapaKata’s spring open day last year. They’re by lovely Laura Calderwood and I think they really show how warm and welcoming a wedding teepee can feel… but do go along to this year’s open day for the full PapaKata experience!

I love Beth and Eddie’s glamorous vintage wedding – all about fun and laughter, and with a focus on family. And yet the attention to detail is exquisite… Beth wears a Justin Alexander designer gown, which is fabulous. Friends and family helped out with gorgeous table centrepieces and a creative and very personal cake – and the personal touches throughout are just wonderful and inspiring.

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely day so far. I have something very special to show you today… something I fell in love with a few years ago when I first began writing the English Wedding Blog. Wedding teepees were brand new, and I’ve always adored their rustic, eco style. PapaKåta is now the UK’s biggest supplier of gorgeous teepees and last year introduced us to Sperry Tents.

Papakata-Sperry-Tent-190

PapaKata wedding teepeeTrust me – once you’ve seen a PapaKata teepee or Sperry tent, you’ll never want to see a bog standard marquee again. Ever!

PapaKata_Teepees UK real weddingIf you want to celebrate in extraordinary style, look no further than PapaKåta’s teepees. The free-spirited teepees are glorious in summer and super cosy in winter.

Sperry Tents are huge in the US, always on the world’s top wedding blogs, and will be one of the hottest things in weddings for 2015 and beyond.

Hey lovelies, happy weekend! (Didn’t it take a long time coming?!) I have fab news today – we’re looking forward to featuring lots of lovely wedding highlights films on the English Wedding Blog in the next few months, as the ace team from HDMoments have joined my little gang of handpicked sponsors. Yay!!!

HD Moments are a professional wedding cinematography company experienced in capturing sound, motion and most importantly emotion. They provide the most stunning cinematic wedding videography services to couples in London, West Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey and everywhere in between!

I asked lovely Justina to tell us a little about the story behind HD Moments: “Before HDMoments was born we owned a photography business, we had a lot of adventures and successes but eventually the idea of videography and the challenges that went with it started to appeal to us. We came to the conclusion that we wanted to tell stories in a different way… for us that was video.”

Gone are the days when magazine editors dictated trends. Yay!!! Brides and grooms sharing ideas on Facebook, Pinterest and blogs – and the thousands of real weddings we see online – now set trends for weddings. It’s the images you love, and share, and the things you actually buy, which decide what’s hot or not. Don’t let the magazine editors tell you how to style your day. I asked designers, stylists and photographers what UK brides are really choosing for their 2015 weddings – and they revealed 34 trends you’re already turning into big news for 2015!

So here are 34 REAL predictions for 2015 wedding trends, inspired by the most amazing weddings of 2014 and the designs already in demand by 2015 brides and grooms. Enjoy.

2015 wedding themes

  1. Botanical styling: flowers, leaves & illustration
    Flowers are everywhere this year, and bouquets and displays with mega impact are going to be a huge trend. If I was planning a wedding in 2015 I’d start with my flowers, for sure. Then I’d find stationery to incorporate botanical flower sketches, give seeds as favours, and make sure I didn’t leave my flower crown at home!

I fall in love with an image as often as I fall for a design, a shoot or a designer. It’s not so often I tumble head over heels for all four… but today I have. I’d love to show you Wilderness Bride – a heritage inspired bridal collection with a dreamy, wild and romantic shoot.

British wedding dress collection by Wilderness Bride 2015 (10)

Wilderness Bride has all of the things I love most in the world combined into one label: folklore, nature, wilderness – of course – and beautiful, romantic design.

The collection is feminine and romantic and uses blush tones in a subtle way. With a strong focus on lace, the ideas was to create a quiet, simple elegance.

There’s nothing I adore more than a vintage Vespa wedding – and Esmeri and Ross added fun to their day with his n hers vintage vehicles: a Vespa for the groom, and a campervan for the bride. LOVE! Their glamorous wedding was at Church Farm and photographed by Welsh wedding photographer Darren Williams.

Weddings are going to be ultra glamorous this year, and Es and Ross rocked fabulously glam styling with classic elegance: a Mori Lee dress, bespoke mod suit and guests in black and white. Family and friends were recruited to prepare everything from cakes to signage – as Es told me, “it is a great achievement to say that you pulled it off and created such a beautiful day with the help of your family.”
