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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!”

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.

Hi everyone! I can’t resist writing up this little wedding blog, inspired by last week’s red carpet performances – oh, and some films. Seeing the Oscar winners announced and watching TV news’s analysis of all the best dresses on the night really got me thinking.

oscars red carpet 2013

Hollywood glamour is a great inspiration for wedding themes. But let the Oscars inspire your big day too much, and you could have a disaster on your hands! Here’s why.

Have we all lost the plot?

Watching ITV Daybreak (shoot me now) last week, I began to wonder if there was an alternative Oscars, something I hadn’t heard of. I was vaguely puzzled to see a parade of dresses, paparazzi-style flashbulbs and glowing teeth. All very pretty – but aren’t the Oscars supposed to be about films?

Suddenly expensive dresses seemed to take centre stage, and the real stars – the directors, producers and immensely talented actors – were nowhere to be seen. Sadly, I’ve seen the same phenomenon in wedding magazines and across the wedding industry.

Yay for weekends! I’m so pleased we’ve made it through to Saturday – what a busy week it’s been! I’ve had a brilliant time seeing my little sister yesterday, and there are big plans afoot for this weekend as well – very excited!

But of course I can’t leave English Wedding Blog without sharing the best wedding blogs from my reading list. It’s been a busy time for everyone I think, with bloggers, wedding photographers and wedding suppliers all sharing their latest news and designs. Those new years resolutions are still going strong… just! And it’s absolutely the best time to get wedding inspiration from all the blogs because there is so much to see.

I hope you enjoy these links! Claire xxx

I think perhaps I’m becoming known for my love of sunshine! I live at the seaside, and when it’s cold it’s sooooo cold: but when the sun shines it’s incredibly beautiful. And I talk about it a LOT! Somerset wedding photographer Simon Biffen knows exactly how to get my attention: with an offer of a beautifully sunny Sorrento wedding blog feature!

Lucy and Joe were married last summer and invited Simon Biffen to be their wedding photographer. Lucy is English and Joe is American, so they chose a destination wedding in Italy as a way of meeting in the middle!

Their theme included purple details and the wedding day was timeless and simple in style, with the location and love creating all the atmosphere you could dream of!
