Expert advice is invaluable when you’re planning a wedding. I had an email a few weeks ago from a bride who’d booked her venue and then realised it wasn’t big enough for all of her guests for both the ceremony and reception – she was desperately looking for a ceremony venue at the last minute, and I did my best to help. So I’m hugely grateful to lovely Gabrielle of Blue Bouquet Bride, who works at a luxury wedding venue, for writing today’s feature. Searching for a wedding venue – and getting everything right – isn’t easy. Gabrielle knows all the questions to ask, and shares her advice with us here today. Her list of 15 essential questions could be invaluable for you if you’re deciding on your wedding venue.

Happy Thursday afternoon everyone! Just a quick note from me as I’m doing officey stuff today… there are a few sponsor spaces available from the first of June and I’m looking for new wedding blog sponsors – if you have a wedding business and would like to join my lovely group of sponsors please get in touch!

I’ve had the loveliest email from one of my wedding photographer sponsors this week: “Just a quick note to say thanks so much for the intro page, I’ve had SO many hits from EWB already and three enquiries that I know for certain are from your lovely blog.” I won’t name names but I owe that lovely person a BIG hug!

My whole purpose for being here is to connect brides and grooms with great suppliers; to fix you up with brilliant people and lovely things for your wedding day, and when I get an email like this it means I’ve done it.

Hello there! This morning’s wedding blog is a special feature full of ideas, inspired by Becky and Greg’s Farbridge Barn wedding on the blog yesterday. Lovely photographer Sophie Duckworth sent me so many images of the gorgeous details I simply had to give them a little more attention here! I adore a creative bride and groom, and if you love crafting as much as Becky then this is going to be right up your street!

Families and friends often play a big part in weddings: gone are the days when Dad’s only role was to walk you down the aisle and make a speech. If your Pop is handy with a hammer he’s more likely to be making your wedding signposts, huge wooden initials full of lightbulbs… you name it! And Mums and Grans are often recruited not only for cakes but to sew miles of bunting while you and your other half print, glue and stick invitations, table plans, orders of service…

Billed as Surrey’s premier wedding venue, Northbrook Park is a pretty amazing place – and if your budget allows, then it’s a gorgeous location for a classic English wedding. Northbrook has featured on the English Wedding Blog a handful of times, always taking a back seat as we showcase fabulous real weddings… and so today I thought it was time we explored a little more!

Northbrook Park is a stunning Grade II listed eighteenth-century manor house set within a beautiful country estate. Being a Hampshire and Surrey wedding photographer, this venue is perfect for my brides as sits peacefully on the Surrey and Hampshire border, with extensive grounds and charming walled gardens.” ~ Jennifer Sinclair Photography

I’ll be sharing more from the masquerade wedding inspiration shoot very soon!
