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.

Ed and Christian’s barn wedding is lovely – with so many homemade details and some fab finds on Etsy.com, they created a perfectly rustic wedding day. The venue is Pangdean Barn just outside of Brighton, and images are by Jackie at Peony Brides.

Christian looks beautiful in a Johanna Hehir wedding dress, and I really love Ed’s suit as well – they’re a stylish couple with an eye for detail but the overall feeling I get from their day is one of celebration and enjoyment with tons of love from friends and family… which makes it all the more special.

Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a fab day. I’ve just discovered this tipi event and I really wish I could go! It sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Plus it’s at the gorgeous Bawdon Lodge Farm which featured on the English Wedding Blog in a country wedding styling article last summer.

My heart did a little skip into my mouth as I read through Melanie’s wedding report this morning! I always ask couples to tell me how they met, and today’s couple’s story is similar to mine: this gorgeous couple met online, and Melanie told me, “Colin was the only person I sent a message to, one drunken evening of searching for the love of my life!” Funny – I spent one begrudging evening on Match.com and it was the luckiest moment of my life as I found my guy too!

It’s always fantastic to see wedding stationery taking centre stage in a beautiful shoot, and this lush feature on the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners’ blog caught my eye for all the fabulous details. It exudes luxury with a warming colour combination of pink and orange roses. Glassware is edged with gold leaf and the handwritten calligraphy adds a delicious finishing touch to the table decor.

Carrina and Simon were lucky enough to be married at the spectacular St Audries Park in Somerset in October, and their wedding caught my eye for its rich colours, styling and location. St Audries Park is gorgeous – the ivy climbing the tower is the most romantic backdrop and makes for amazing images.

When it comes to weddings pink never goes out of fashion. Ever. Never ever. Shades of pink come and go… fuchsia isn’t as big as it used to be. Baby is back. Mismatching pink with a-little-bit-of-everything-else is big news. So today I’ve made up this little inspiration feature for you to share, Pin, get inspired by and just enjoy while you enjoy a cup of tea 🙂

The details from Daniella and Scott’s Saddleworth Hotel wedding are just divine. As wedding coordinators they knew their venue inside out, and chose a sparkly winter wedding theme to make the most of the spectacular venue. Daniella’s dress is stunning – a Manuel Mota design with intricate beading.

I’ve hated – and been fascinated by – wedding fairs for the last decade. They can be hell on earth, and they can be inspiring and fun. Wedding suppliers love and dread them in equal measure, while 62% of brides enjoy them and only 2% of grooms survive more than one fair*. But times are changing and there are some pretty amazing new wedding ‘fairs’ to discover if you know where to look!

So what’s the deal with wedding fairs?

The purpose is – publicly – to unite brides and grooms with suppliers: to provide a place where they can meet face to face, get several quotes and choose suppliers. It’s a great idea and in theory, helps everyone. Find the right wedding fair and you’re sorted. Even at the wrong wedding fair you can find a gem of a supplier. But how do you know if a fair will be inspiring or terrifying? Read on…
