Beautiful Buckinghamshire wedding with photos by S2 Photography (34)
FEATURED

When I first started out as a wedding calligrapher I illustrated Hampden House by hand for a bride and groom’s wedding table plan! When I saw it in Omair and Sarah’s wedding pictures today I knew it instantly: a glorious venue, unique and instantly recognisable… and perfect for this loveliest of couples! I love everything about their day (I’d love to see pics from their Asian wedding on the Sunday too, but today we’re focusing on the traditional English celebration) – the elegant styling, vibrant florals and oodles of romance from beginning to end. It’s all just so magical! Images are by fabulous Warwickshire wedding photographers and English Wedding Directory members S2 Images.

Beautiful Buckinghamshire wedding with photos by S2 Photography (18)

We have different religions, backgrounds, heritages and we wanted to represent all of that. But most importantly represent our relationship so celebrating bringing all these elements together which we decided to do over a weekend rather than in one day. We had two main events so most things were duplicated; two venues, two sets of outfits, two cakes, two caterers. But we didn’t want to simply repeat one day so we had different traditions incorporated over the weekend so there was always something new.

I do love a venue with character, don’t you? Pretty blank canvas spaces are all well and good, but show me somewhere with a stage, balconies, pillars and old world charm… and I’m sold! Today’s wedding from Salomon’s Estate in Tunbridge Wells is unique, exciting and beautifully photographed by our friend and sponsor lovely Penny Young Photography. Amy is such a stunning bride; Carl her perfect match – and oh, those flowers too!

Carl hand made the giant ROPE letter lights over a few weeks, and they were popular with our guests and us – he enjoyed making them, and we had a bit of help from a few friends to finish them off, but when they turned into Disco lights in the evening it was great to see our new “name in lights” so to speak!

Happy weekend!! Oh, this one’s been a long time coming… we’re heading out to the Lakes for adventures today, but I had to share this gorgeous wedding with you first! Beautiful bride Sarah and gorgeous hubby’s Rob’s big day was in Worcestershire, with the reception in a 15th century barn (The Fleece Inn, Bretforton). I love the warm atmosphere of their day which just shines in all the photos – Sarah’s smile and oh, that dress!!!

“Our flowers were done by my amazingly talented cousin Anna who runs a floristry business called ‘Wedding flowers in Cornwall’. We wanted to incorporate thistles into our flowers as we got engaged in Scotland. (Rob proposal on a secluded beach in Dunbar, incidentally my new married name). We went primarily for white flowers with sand roses to highlight in my bouquet and lots of greenery. We also had white gladioli in the church hanging downwards that were just gorgeous.

An elegant and modern English wedding at Hampton Court House with Elaine Williams Photography (12)

Kate & Chris were married at Hampton Court House in a decadent, dramatically styled wedding. Kate wore a gown by Sally Eagle and Valentino Rockstud pumps. They exchanged vows at her family church before heading on to Hampton Court House, of course via Bushy Park for photographs. The whole day was relaxed and stylish. Guests were treated to music from a quartet, before heading to the dramatically styled dining room for the breakfast.

I had a slightly different style of wedding dress in mind but I was drawn to this one as soon as I saw it, and when I tried it on at Luella’s Bridal it felt perfect. My mum and maid of honour both did these little intakes of breath when I came out in the sample! I only went to one bridal boutique as on my first visit I narrowed it down to two, and by my second visit I knew which one it was to be. The designer is Sally Eagle Bridal, and I also wore a bolero, handmade by Sewn Right with material from Sally Eagle (to match the dress).

I love this wedding. The details and styling are fab, Solene and Adam are both soooo gorgeous – and their smiles just make me grin right back at the screen. Their wedding day was Lord of the Rings themed, and it was styled amazingly with their florist really seeing their vision. Their images are vibrant, natural, and capture the spirit of the day so beautifully. Huge thanks to Gemma Giorgio for sending me such a beautiful wedding to share with you all today!

Our venue didn’t need much decoration – the building itself was in keeping with our style. We made placecards with quotes on the back and little hessian sacks as party favours which were stamped with a personalised stamp. Our cake was a naked cake (red velvet, salted caramel and Victoria sponge) as it fitted perfectly with our general theme.

For my bouquet I had pale purple and red roses with foliage, and for the table decorations, lots of moss! The florist was Alison White Flowers. She was amazing! She designed and arranged everything on the big day.

Today’s wedding is incredible – I fell hard for the gorgeous red peony bouquet, which matches beautiful bride Charlotte’s hair perfectly! The venue is spectacular… if you’re looking for a wedding venue in the south east of the country, and want to make a real statement – then this is absolutely one to go see! David and Charlotte’s day is filled with thoughtful handmade touches, beautiful moments, and love and laughter. I hope you love it as much as I do!

We got married at Battle Abbey School in Battle, East Sussex. I grew up in Hastings (which is just down the road) and David has come to adore the coast so the setting and the location was perfect for us. For our wedding we decided on a book theme. Both of us are avid writers and readers and the love of a book is what heavily fueled one of our first conversations. Battle Abbey offered the opportunity to have our wedding breakfast in their library – which convinced us that it was the perfect setting for our day. Around the wedding we had various literature related items – book centerpieces, paper flowers, a table plan constructed of book pages. It was great to bring that love of ours into such a special day. I think the style of our wedding was quite classic, with the setting of Battle, the tails for the boys and lace on my dress.

Joanna and Cajetan’s wedding is a wonderfully sophisticated, elegant celebration with lush winter colours and a real sense of fun. The day focused on giving guests the time of their lives – food and entertainment were key and the images of their day capture every moment so beautifully. Joanna is so beautiful in a bespoke designer dress and I love that this gorgeous couple planned their day together as a team.

“Typically the girls get most of the credit for planning a wedding!? If you have a husband-to-be who is willing to pitch in – use him to your advantage! Cj was absolutely fantastic, we had a shared vision about the day and he did so much of the planning. It was so much easier to plan that way, as the load was shared and we went through the stress and then the satisfaction together! It was great teamwork and by the end he found suppliers and booked them, which is half the battle! We felt like we pulled off a spectacular day! With the added addition of cultural differences and family members flying from all over the world, we had to cater to both sides. We did it!

As a girl with a freely admitted paper fetish, I do love to see a shoot where deliciously designed stationery takes centre stage. (And because I’m totally skill-less with flower arranging, I adore it when beautifully styled flowers share the limelight!) So today’s bright, springtime wedding style inspiration is just so lovely to share with you. I hope it brightens your heart and your day as much as it does mine!

My best friend from school gets married next weekend and I really can’t wait for the day. It’s going to be all kinds of amazing! 🙂 I love that they’ve chosen to have a spring wedding: there is something enchanting about this time of year, don’t you think?

Visually, spring is just so beautiful. Blossom is all around; seasonal bouquets include lovely tulips, anemones and muscari (some of my absolute favourites) and your venue’s gardens will be starting to burst into life. You may be lucky enough to find a carpet of bluebells or even primroses for your wedding pics, and in late spring there’ll be wisteria-covered walls and beautiful magnolias creating the most colourful, natural backdrops for your portraits.

Weddings in spring always have a feeling of freshness and new beginnings.  The backdrop will usually be spring flowers scattered on the ground, a slight chill in the air, and soft afternoon sunshine.  Suppliers and venues are gearing up for a busy season, and the first few weddings of the year are wrapped up in the excitement and anticipation of so many new opportunities to make a wedding day extra-special.” ~ Carol Elizabeth Photography

Seeing all of your table plans fascinates me: I’ve already decided I’d be on the Prodigy table for this one… although the choice is fantastic! Nonetheless today’s is a celebration where music really mattered, and it sounds as though the band playing at Stacey and Roger’s festival wedding outshone any of the famous names on the table plan! Today’s is a fab theme, and a gorgeous autumn wedding: I hope you love it as much as I do!

Carol blended in with the wedding guests and captured fantastic photos of them all enjoying the day. Although the posed and group shots are beautiful and just what we wanted, some of our favourites are those where people are blissfully unaware of her presence! She captured so many magical moments that we missed throughout the day.”

“We found the vinyl templates online and made everything else ourselves. It took a bit of time but the end results were definitely worth it as our guests commented that they’d not seen anything like it before!”

1. If you haven’t done it on the day, or you’ve forgotten something, it probably wasn’t that important and so don’t spend your day worrying about it. Make sure you benefit from all of your hard work!

~ Katherine & Ben

2. Be philosophical about the details, as much as every detail may have seemed important in the planning, in the grand scheme of the day you will get caught up in the moment and things will inevitably be overlooked. If there are details that really matter to you both, entrust them to someone else, don’t try to do them yourself on the day.

~ Ananda & Darren

3. Don’t feel pressured to do things you don’t feel comfortable with. Alex didn’t want to stand and give a speech so he made a video to play on the day. Me and all our guests were in tears and we get people complimenting us on it even now. It meant that Alex could relax and give a speech he knew he was happy with and it is much more his style than a traditional speech. It goes to show that adapting the rules can give the best results!
