Getting engaged is a beautiful thing. The romance, the excitement. The questions!

Most couples I have spoken to about planning a wedding always say that as soon as you’re engaged the questions start coming thick and fast. Where are you getting hitched? Are you going to have a wedding band? Do you know what colour scheme you are going for? Ever thought about making your own wedding favours? I am going to stop now because the list could go on.

However, I am here to give you a little helping hand and to ease the pressure of planning a wedding. Behold below a wedding schedule that can be used as a guideline for any kind of nuptials that are being planned.

Whether you are having an informal wedding in the woods, a grand stately home shebang or a registry office and drinks at the pub shin-dig – this guideline can be used in whatever planning facility you need.

A guest article by Lancashire wedding videographer Love Gets Sweeter

It’s true that the biggest regret of newlyweds is NOT having a wedding video. (According to Bridebook 75% of couples go on to regret it)!

Not investing in a professional wedding videographer is the no.1 regret of so many couples, but why?

So yes, I (Charlene) am a wedding videographer and this may seem like a totally biased post so let me share my personal experience too.

We nearly didn’t have a wedding video. We were weeks away and I was getting ever so nervous that we would go on to regret not having our very own wedding video.

My husband, like a lot of us, was very anti wedding video. His comparison was it being similar to a Peter Andre ITV2 documentary having cameras follow us around and annoying all the guests.

For me it was genuinely hating hearing and seeing myself on screen. I hate my voice! BUT, having seen the value in old home movies I hoped I could essentially get over myself so we could have our very own home movie!

Welcome to the weekend! And OMG – to June! And roll on summertime… I can’t wait for lazy sunny evenings and beach sunsets 🙂 Today I have a stunning late summer wedding to share with you. Gorgeous couple Rachel and Ben had a very relaxed, informal, vintage-inspired day with a party vibe for the evening party. The wedding breakfast was loosely based on Alice in Wonderland, complete with mismatched crockery and vintage cake stands with styling touches in dusky pinks and mauve.

Rachel’s dress is stunning – the perfect princess style and it suits her perfectly! She told me she tried on 8 dresses before falling in love with this Essense of Australia gown from Ava Rose Hamilton. The guys – including Ben and their 7 year old son – wore lovely 3 piece Marc Darcy suits. Ben’s tie and pocket square were champagne coloured to match Rachel’s dress.

A blissfully beautiful real wedding for you this Friday… I’ve been excited to share this one, and I just know you’ll love it! Becky and Martin married in July 2018 at Cooling Castle barn in Kent. They have a shared love of travel and adventure, and styled their wedding with nods to this from globes to photographs on each table and little mini travel cameras – the theme of travelling was all around.

Images are by our lovely friend and English Wedding member, Kent based Michelle Cordner Photography. Becky’s dress is from Wed2B, teamed with shoes from Paradox. Her hair is by Zara Rose and makeup is by Lydia Rae. Martin bought a suit from Moss and teamed it with a dusky pink tie from Asos. Floral styling and bouquets are by The Flowersmiths.

“Luckily our venue didn’t need too much decoration. The barn already felt really rustic and didn’t need much adding to it. We decided to add things like a few extra fairy lights, items to tie in with the travel theme like a light up globe, treasure chests for cards and gifts etc. The rest was all handmade items we added.

Morning lovely! I hope you’re having an easy day 🙂 It’s miserable up here in the Lakes (although I’m happily submerged in calligraphy work – yay!), so I’m delighted to be filling our screens with joyful colour and a light and fragrant summer wedding edit today. The florals are just STUNNING – and I’m totally in love with the Watters Wtoo gown with all its sparkle and swishiness! Oh, and don’t even get me started on the fabulous cake… it’s a winner in every single way and I’m thrilled to be sharing this with you all! Get those Pinterest fingers ready, my lovelies!

The concept for the shoot was a bright and contemporary use of décor and styling for a young modern bride who embraced her love of all things bold, bright and creative, yet wanted to keep things pretty, feminine and natural. Images are by Laura Jane Photography and the shoot was planned and styled by Party Squared with fabulous florals by Miss Fleur Floral Design, who submitted the shoot for us to share.

Wedding photo booths come in all shapes and sizes. I’ve seen them all – I’ve laughed my socks off in many! – and I’ve found the most elegant and beautiful wedding photo booths for hire in the UK at Absolute Booth, who offer photo booth hire in London, Kent and Surrey.

If styling your wedding matters – if you’re having your reception in a venue which looks elegant or is beautifully styled then your wedding photo booth needs to fit in – and the booths from Absolute Booth are just stunning.

Gorgeous couple Emily & Harry tied the knot at Sharpham House in Devon last May. Theirs was a wonderfully relaxed, country style wedding with plenty of wildflowers – and truly, the floral styling is breathtaking! Harry’s mum arranged all of the flowers with help from family and friends. Emily told me she worked tirelessly in the run up to the wedding and in particular the day before to make everything look so beautiful.

“We went to a wholesale flower seller in Cornwall to purchase all of the flowers and used wildflowers in her garden to help decorate the tables. We had plenty of green foliage to bulk out the flowers and also add colour. In my bouquet were pale pink peonies, blue delphiniums, white freshias and green foliage. The wildflowers on the tables included buttercups and bluebells. We also used plenty of cow parsley and eucalyptus to decorate the venue!

The venue itself is a beautiful old house, so we didn’t need a large amount of decoration. We added a few touches here and there to make it look more festive and like a wedding!

Timelessness is like gold dust when it comes to weddings. Finding that perfect gown which will stand the test of time, an heirloom piece you will adore as much in fifty years’ time as you do today. Claire Pettibone designs the kind of wedding gowns your granddaughters will fall in love with; breathtakingly beautiful, timeless pieces with exquisite luxury fabrics and silhouettes.

Claire Pettibone 2020 wedding dress ideas (1)

What is timeless in this culture of NOW and NEXT?! This is something I actually spend a lot of time thinking about as I design a collection. Although I love trends and find inspiration in both the past and my current surroundings, when I create a bridal gown, I do think about the long term. One day my bride will look back at these photos, and maybe even down the line her children or grandchildren will too…what will they think? Was it trendy? Was it too much or not enough? Most importantly, does it capture the essence of this woman…who she was at that sweet time in life when love between two people was just beginning. My ultimate goal is to create wedding dresses that truly portray each bride and give her a beauty that endures the test of time.” ~Bridal designer Claire Pettibone

“Cherish forever what makes you unique, ‘cuz you’re really a yawn if it goes.” – Bette Midler

Crafting a wild and wonderful wedding, one that is unique and pleasing for both you and guests alike is a growing trend. Offbeat weddings are fun, exciting and create a sense of anticipation for all involved. Indeed, weddings today don’t need to follow the traditional path, and if you choose otherwise, know that you’re not alone.
Today, engaged couples have so much at their disposal to create the perfect, personalized wedding. A wedding that not only stands out from the crowd but represents their interests, philosophies or values. These weddings can be as romantic as hosting an authentic Regency era Jane Austen wedding in Goodnestone Park, to throwing an all-out cabaret shindig for your guests to enjoy. You can make all aspects of your wedding follow a particular crazy theme, from the location to the dress code to the wedding gifts you want to receive.
To help you get started on your journey of a one-of-kind wedding, here are some totally unique ideas ranging from 100% wacky to seriously obscure. Hey, you get married once (hopefully) so make sure you start your married life with a bang!

Reportage and documentary wedding photography - traditions and tips! Martin Beddall Photography (31)

In 2019, there’s no need to stand still and say ‘cheese’. Have you ever wondered why the registrar will invite your guests up to take a pic of you “signing the register”, or why cutting the cake is such a big deal at weddings? It’s all about the photography, and dates back a generation to the times when wedding photographers had to very carefully capture 12 or 36 images on a film. You could almost count the ‘key moments’ to fit the photos on a roll of old school negatives! Documentary wedding photographer Martin Beddall explains how wedding photography has changed since our parents’ days, and how those traditional moments have become something really quite special in the age of documentary wedding photography.

Weddings have their traditions. Some are even actually old, like the wedding ring or the bouquet. Wedding photography has its traditions too. Or it used to…

In 2019 it really doesn’t need them!

The ‘traditions’ attached to wedding photography date back to an era when the camera technology meant that pictures needed to be ‘set up’ and flashed. “1..2..3, look this way…and smile!

Refined elegance is a thing we do oh so well in this country – and today’s couple Charlotte and Nick chose to keep their day perfectly elegant with pristine details and the prettiest styling. Pale blues and white florals make this a really beautiful day, with the cake and bouquet both being showstoppers I think you will LOVE!

Beautiful bride Charlotte wears a stunning traditional dress with embroidered bodice and layers upon layers of tulle for a fabulous skirt full of movement – while her gorgeous groom Nick looks the part in a traditional morning suit with a pale blue tie and white wedding waistcoat.

Charlotte and Nick chose our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography to capture their day. Nicola is a Hertfordshire wedding photographer who covers the surrounding counties, including magnificent Chicheley Hall where the wedding reception took place. Before heading to the hall, the happy couple paid a quick visit to Charlotte’s horses to say hi – and get some adorable photos of their little family! [more on Nicola’s blog here!]

Gorgeous couple Rhalina and Toby describe their wedding – and I LOVE this – as “a mix of tradition and latino energy with Art Deco club glamour”. It just about sums up the vibrance and energy of their day – and yet you need to scroll through all the images to capture the excitement and magic of it all! They were married in Mayfair in August, with a ceremony at Farm Street Church and their reception at The Landsdowne Club on Fitzmaurice Place.

Rhalina’s dress is incredible: it’s by Riki Dalal, and was the very last she tried on in the boutique. Isn’t it stunning? The delicate flowers on the bodice are lovely; the leaf pattern and graceful shape of the skirt made her absolutely mesmerising as she walked down the aisle on the day! This is a wow dress – and a wow wedding for sure!

  • 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."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
