1. Make an impact with a square, tiered cake!

This beauty from Edible Essence is pure white with a delicate pattern and the effect against the dramatic, dark tablescape is sublime. I adore the arrangement which tops the cake, complete with its own adorable vessel!

Coming to the English Wedding Blog in February – we can’t wait to see more!

Regular readers will know stationery is close to my heart! As a calligrapher I’ve worked with some of the very best from Cutture to Print for Love – and one of the loveliest things about writing the English Wedding Blog is discovering new stationery designers and online wedding invitation boutiques.

I’m also a huge supporter of independent and local businesses, so I’m delighted to bring you my top picks of wedding stationery designers to watch (and buy from!) in 2018. In no particular order….

2018 wedding dresses by UK designer Emma Victoria Payne (6)

Soooo… wedding dress shopping. Have you begun? Are you on the ideas trail, glued to Pinterest and swooning over wedding mags and beautiful editorial shoots? If there’s one thing I’d love the English Wedding Blog to be, it’s a hub for discovering UK designers to fall in love with. Emma Victoria Payne is one of my favourite couture dress designers, whose collection for 2018 is simply breathtaking.

This year Emma Victoria Payne has relocated to a beautiful new boutique at 6 Park Walk which is fantastic! “We really love our new boutique, it is such a wonderful space to work in! We have so many ideas for the window displays!”

Today’s shoot blows my mind, it’s so beautiful! Kirsty’s fabulous blue hair is only the beginning: the dress is insanely beautiful, the owl is the cutest thing ever, and the dripping candles and creative tablescapes tie the alternative fairytale styling (because yes, that’s a thing now!) together perfectly. Huge thanks to lovely Andreea at Vevi Photography for sharing this with us today. Lovelies, you’re going to need your Pinterest fingers!

We wanted to create a fairytale feel for our alternative wedding shoot combining the woodland rustic wedding styling with touches of more luxurious items like gold rimmed plates, some exotic flowers and gold painted apples.
