Today’s wedding sings of summer. If you’re missing those long, chilled out evenings and glorious rays then you’ll adore today’s summery celebrations! Let me introduce you to gorgeous bride and groom Verity and Adam, whose July wedding in Somerset is as perfect as can be – from the little details through to the amazing atmosphere of love and laughter captured so beautifully by our friend Warren at Howell Jones Photography.

We had a skype interview with a couple of different photographers but we loved Warren’s style of photography and his relaxed approach.
We had an engagement shoot in Oxford in the autumn and it was great for us to all get to know each other a bit before the big day. It was important to us for the photographer not to feel like a stranger on the day so we could be comfortable and not awkward in front of the camera.

Hey beautiful! How was your weekend? We were treated to the loveliest day on Saturday by the team at The Wordsworth Hotel in Grasmere, in the Lake District. I’m feeling so refreshed and at peace after a blissful weekend! More about that on Wednesday – we’ll be publishing a full review of our weekend then. Today though, we head for another stunning English mansion, with a wonderfully spring like wedding inspiration shoot from Clissold Park Mansions, just outside of London.

Images are by our lovely friend Eva Tarnok, and the styling was all taken care of by the fabulous Events by Keenda. We’re blown away by the floral design by Augusta Florals, and the bouquet, with silk ribbons from super lovely Pompom Blossom, and the cake and desserts from wonderful Gourmandises. The stationery by Hummingbird Cards adds a touch of elegance to set the scene for a perfectly styled English wedding.

Happy Sunday, beautiful! How’s your weekend going? I forgot to tell you – we spent last night at The Wordsworth in Grasmere, a gorgeous spot for a wedding – so waking up this morning was absolute bliss! I’ll tell you all about it later in the week 🙂 For today though, something VERY special. We’ve been chatting to the wedding & events team at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford recently – it’s a breathtaking and wonderfully unique wedding venue with a stunning balance of contemporary architecture and historic backdrops – half a million years of art and history, to be precise! Today we’re sharing a bridal photoshoot at the Ashmolean, so you can see the place for yourselves… isn’t it incredible?!

The Ashmolean is a rich treasure house. Grand, sweeping staircases and priceless paintings offer a wealth of unique opportunities for photoshoots. Traditional flower arrangements coupled with contemporary bridal wear – a combination of old and new – embodies the breadth of the Ashmolean’s spaces.

A guest article by Wild Tipi

Most of us will have experienced the joys of an English summer festival; whether it’s on a huge scale like Glastonbury or a low-key local affair, we can all relate to lying back on the warm grass with a cool pint of something by our sides as the tunes drift over the crowds, stirring memories or awakening moods within us. Or perhaps it’s more a case of trying to stay upright in the torrential rain and mud as our friends fall about laughing at our efforts… either way, the festival vibe is something dear to many of us and evokes powerful feelings of friendship, togetherness, of finding your tribe and one heck of a party.

Oh thank goodness it’s Friday at last! I’ve been looking forward to sharing this beautiful wedding with you lovely lot all week! Our gorgeous couple are childhood sweethearts Joe and Kerry, who were married in church and celebrated at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich.

Their day is classic and beautiful – the dress is stunning and traditional with gorgeous, intricate detailing and a full skirt. Joe’s suit is accessorised with pretty pale pink accents, which tie in with Kerry’s bouquet and the lovely bridesmaids’ dresses. The day is pretty and feminine, luxurious and full of love and laughter – it’s a perfect way to end our week, and I hope you love this as much as I do!

beautiful artisan wedding rings made in the UK by Nikki Stark Jewellery (2)
FEATURED

One of these little beauties is totally on my birthday list this year! I’m delighted to be introducing lovely Nikki Stark Jewellery to you today, and thrilled to say Nikki is an English Wedding member. Her rings and necklaces are perfectly crafted, and there’s just something about a piece of jewellery made by hand and with love, especially when it comes to wedding rings… don’t you think?

beautiful artisan wedding rings made in the UK by Nikki Stark Jewellery (10)

Elegant, ethical jewellery, hand crafted to order.

There are a lot of facets to the jewellery industry, and when I was younger I had images of sparkly, Oscars ceremony worthy costume jewellery all over my walls. These pieces however have minimal use for most of us.

Simple, wearable pieces can quietly add beauty to our everyday existence. Looking down at your fingers when you are waiting for the kettle to boil and gently moving your hands to watch a tiny gem’s colour pop in the light, or the sparkle move over a hammered surface. One of my close friends whose wedding jewellery I made has talked about sitting in a traffic jam with her hands on the steering wheel, watching the sun pick up the warmth in her white gold rings.

Unique and stylish, spacious barn wedding venue with two barns to choose from! The Cissbury Estate is in the South Downs national park, with beautiful grounds making this a tranquil haven to enjoy. The barns themselves are 200 years old, brick and flint and were used for sheep farming back in the day. They’re now beautifully transformed inside, with huge doors opening onto a lawned garden and patio area. The light floods in when these are open – so they’re wonderful if the weather is on your side! Surrounded by woodland, the barns are secluded and this makes them a really special place for your Sussex wedding.

Happy Monday my lovelies! Is the sun shining for you today? I do hope so – we had the most beautiful sunrise up here in the Lake District and I’m feeling happy and excited for a lovely week ahead! In real life, it’s full of me writing wedding invitation samples on handmade papers with my fave calligraphy pens – and then I’ve a modern calligraphy workshop by the coast on Friday. In wedding blog life (which is a joyful existence lived inside my computer!) this week we have lots of fabulous inspiration for you including a virtual explore of Sussex’s best wedding venues and a rundown of some of the Midlands’ finest wedding bands – if you’re in those areas, check back here through the week to find out more!

Today we kick off with a gorgeous English wedding. Beautiful bride Keely married her gorgeous guy Ben in May. The wisteria-framed portraits outside their venue are glorious; the styling of their day is elegant and refined. I adore the bridesmaids in palest blue with sequin patterns on their dresses. The seed wedding favours are a lovely idea and look so adorably home made! And of course Keely and Ben just look wonderful together: so happy and the absolute picture of elegance and grace.

Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love grows and gives us a fairytale – Michael’s mum

Scrolling through the fabulous images from today’s London wedding, I get a very strong feeling that this is only the beginning of gorgeous couple Michael and Dorito’s story. It’s for this sense of ongoing narrative that I love sharing documentary wedding photography – I find it keeps my feet on the ground and reminds me that weddings are just as much a part of daily life as having breakfast and chatting to friends.

Your wedding will be your best day ever. That’s guaranteed: you’re marrying the love of your life, setting out together on an adventure. But that perfection is all about the people, the laughter and the love. However you choose to ‘frame’ your day (with styling and decor, flowers and sequins) it’s important to remember that those details are only a frame or a backdrop for your celebrations. On the day, you’ll know just what I mean.

Hey lovelies! Let’s dive straight into today’s real wedding – it’s too good to miss! Gorgeous couple Lauren & Duncan were married in July at the gorgeous Merriscourt, Oxfordshire. They had lots of lovely rustic details with flowers and foliage everywhere – and such carefully selected styling elements. Lauren’s dress by Sottero & Midgley (from Once in a Lifetime Bridal)  is stunning! “It was as if it was made for me, and I felt incredible on the big day.”

This wedding is making me feel like summertime… and with the rain this morning hammering against the window in my little office, I’ll take that! Images are by lovely Rachel Lou Photography.

“The venue itself was a series of beautiful barns set in amazing grounds, which wouldn’t have looked out of place in southern Italy! We wanted lots of fairy lights set amongst the beams and also had lots of vinyl decal on mirrors as we wanted to make the most of the light in the venue. We had lots of candles set around and wooden accessories to tie in the rustic theme.

Hi lovelies! How is your wedding planning going and are you hooked on Pinterest yet? I’ve spent today falling down random Pinterest holes… it’s not been a mega productive one so far! And the photoshoot I’m about to share with you hasn’t helped at all… there are so many stunning ideas here. We’re talking late summer wedding style – for that brief period of time when the summer begins to fade and wisps of autumn stir the air. A delicate, pastel colour palette still works this late in the season, but tinged with plum tones and darker pinks the look becomes something truly special to work with the earliest days of autumn.

Images are by our lovely friend and sponsor Amanda Karen Photography, with a fabulous team of creative London wedding suppliers at Clissold House in Hackney, London.
