Morning everyone! We’re half way through the week – and I’m delighted to have such lovely real weddings to share with you this week. We’re definitely full-on vintage this week with yesterday’s vintage military wedding and today’s fabulously delicate and beautiful celebration – I know you’ll love this.

Isle of Wight wedding by Jason Mark Harris photography (1)

Laura and Paul were married in the Isle of Wight, and their photographer was Jason Mark Harris. I adore the flowers – delicious sweet peas and peonies – and all the pretty locations at the Albert Cottage Hotel. It goes without saying that Laura looks breathtakingly beautiful and Paul is gorgeous too! Laura styled the wedding and made all of her own stationery and everything looks simply amazing – so there’s plenty of inspiration to be had here. Grab a cuppa and enjoy – this is a wonderful wedding and I’m sure you’ll love it!

If you’re styling a vintage military wedding then I’ve a feeling you’ll love Sara and Dave’s wedding blog. They’re a fantastic couple with a great sense of style, and used lengths of bunting and traditional decorations to theme their gorgeous wedding.

vintage wedding (1)Not only are there loads of ideas for you from Sara & Dave’s big day, I’ve created a vintage military wedding Pinterest board with more ideas to share with you – so if you’re planning a similar style for your day, do have a look!

Congratulations to Sara and Dave, and my huge thanks to Jamie from Vickerstaff Photography for sharing the wedding photos on English Wedding Blog for us all to enjoy this morning.

Have a lovely day everyone! Claire xxx

If you’re looking for unique wedding invitations, something a little special and which will make a lovely keepsake for your guests, these are perfect! The overriding trend with wedding invitations over recent years has been for DIY and handmade, and many stationers have developed affordable invite collections for brides and grooms who choose to get a little hands-on with stationery and save money at the same time.

These scroll wedding invitations are easy to make and come in kit form from Etsy.com – all you need to do is assemble the boxes (no glue required), print the invitations at home, and add the ribbon and rose to finish off the design!

Everyone has a strong idea about how a wedding should be: lavish and extravagant is fine if you have the money and it suits your lifestyle. But personally, for me, nothing is more romantic than an intimate wedding with a few guests and some little details to make the day your own. Their country wedding just looks perfect to me: warm and cosy, stylish and really personal. And I absolutely love it.

With congratulations to Fi and Tom, and a big thank you for sharing your wedding story with us all on English Wedding Blog today. Thanks also to Northamptonshire wedding photographer Aaron Collett for submitting the wedding for a feature. How could I possibly say no? This is right up my street, and the photos are beautiful. You’ll find the wedding story about halfway down the page. Enjoy! Claire xxx

Morning! Today’s wedding blog is for all of you bookworms out there to enjoy. If you’re anything like me you’ll know the absolute bliss of having your nose tucked into a book, living out love stories and adventures from the safety of a cosy sofa! And as books have been making a huge statement in wedding decor recently (see my books at weddings Pinterest board) I loved Elizabeth‘s ideas for bridal styles based on some of our favourite characters from fiction. I hope you will too! Enjoy xxx

Wedding style ideas inspired by books

By Elizabeth Mercer Photography

Today’s wedding blog is a make-up and hair bridal shoot inspired by books. It’s really creative and helps brides think outside the box when it comes to their big day. I thought it would be a fun exercise to try to capture the look or mood of fictional characters from literature, and I collaborated with my makeup artist friend, Megan Williams and hair stylist friend Charlie Pivetti.

I’m so very pleased to hear some great news from my friend and sponsor, the lovely Phil Drinkwater. Chatsworth House have just chosen to use a number of Phil’s photos for their latest wedding brochure!

Phil – congratulations!

Phil Drinkwater is a favourite photographer of mine, and has previously won the Guild of Photographers’ “Photographer of the Year” award.

As one of the very best luxury wedding venues in the North West, Chatsworth House hosts incredibly beautiful weddings. The stately home is famous for its spectacular gardens, houses one of the most important private art and sculpture collections and is set in 1000 acres of stunning parkland. Phil says on his own wedding photography blog that Chatsworth “is the perfect venue for beautiful wedding photography”.

See a gorgeous Chatsworth House wedding blog by Phil Drinkwater. Ezgi and Joe were married at Chatsworth last summer and their wedding was featured on the fab Brides Up North wedding blog!

Hello there! I know you’re going to love Luke and Hannah’s Kent wedding blog. It’s the first wedding I’ve ever featured from the wonderful 14th century manor house Penshurst Place, which is magnificent. Hannah looks incredibly beautiful in a wedding dress by Stephanie Allin, and Luke is every bit the English gent in a long jacket complete with cane.

Kent wedding blog Steve Fuller Photography (1)

There are so many fantastic ideas here to inspire your wedding planning, including sunflower bouquets and table decorations, and – my favourites – the cutest little place name card holders with dinky little sunflowers.

Kent wedding blog Steve Fuller Photography (2)

But the most exciting thing about today’s wedding is Hannah and Luke’s memories of the moment their eyes met as Hannah walked down the aisle:

Hannah: “I will never forget seeing Luke for the first time as I walked down the aisle and the look on his face when he turned around and saw me. I couldn’t stop smiling, nothing has ever felt so right!”

Time for some proper, sensible advice from one of my lovely wedding blog sponsors and industry experts – Karen from Perdita’s wedding shoes. With a quick and easy way to decide on a comfortable heel height for your spring / summer wedding shoes, Karen’s advice is honest and genuinely useful. She’s also sharing her secret to the comfiest wedding shoes – and you know they’ll be right when Karen herself says she wears them for wedding fairs! Great advice for brides – and as it’s time to look for your shoes for spring/summer now, it couldn’t have come at a better time! Enjoy xxx

Straight from my inbox – I had to share this with you! Gorgeous wedding invites made in London by Pepper & Joy. Enjoy! xxx

Hi Claire,

My name is Flore and I am a french designer based in London. I had a lot of friends asking me to do their wedding invites so one day I thought that I should work on my own wedding stationery website, http://www.pepperandjoy.com

wedding invites by Pepper and Joy

At Pepper & Joy, the couples choose the designs and then I customize it with their copy and colours. I can print the stationery for them ( I selected a fabulous art paper), or they can choose to print by themselves at home or to their local print shop.

It’s pretty simple, and of course I do the Save the dates, invites, menus, place cards, magnets and more goodies…

All the best,

Flore

One thing we have here in England is history. While the US wedding blogs are so full of chic and contemporary ideas, fabulous styling and creative ideas, have you ever noticed how many US weddings are outdoors? Today’s Sussex wedding is set in what sounds like a fabulous and very old wedding venue – Pangdean Barn.

  • 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."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
