Cheshire is known for being one of the more affluent locations in the UK (to put it mildly), and as a result, there is no shortage of grand and impressive privately owned buildings in such towns as Knutsford, Macclesfield and Chester. In the heart of the Cheshire countryside, one such Cheshire wedding venue – a magnificent manor estate – is happy to welcome couples and their families for a wedding day they’ll never forget.

Colshaw Hall is a lovingly restored, Grade II listed house and has been given plenty of attention by owners the Irlam family, and being located in Knutsford, the hall is perfectly situated for those in the North West after a luxury wedding venue for a perfect day. The country surroundings offer a peaceful and tranquil environment and a welcome degree of privacy, whilst the Hall allows for a grand backdrop and highlights the splendour of the event.

I’m so excited – I’ve just launched a shop on Etsy for my calligraphy bits and bobs. I wondered if you’ve ever bought from the site before, or sold there? Any Etsy fans, wedding suppliers or admirers, I’d really love to hear your advice and opinions about the site.

I am (… is this sad?!) looking forward to reading the Quick Start Guide for sellers later on, but in the meantime any hints and tips you lovely people have to share will be ever so welcome!

I must thank my lovely friend Jo from Vintage Twee whose store has very much inspired mine! I’ve always loved how Jo’s store looks, and I was taking inspiration from her this morning (she has no idea…) so Jo, thank you!!!

If you haven’t discovered Etsy yet, then allow me to share two fabulous weddings with you – both Naomi and Rachel bought goodies from Etsy.com, and their English Weddings were featured on my favourite wedding blog (I’m biased haha)…

Do you know the wedding reading about the two dinosaurs who fall in love? I do – it’s one I’ve written in calligraphy many times and a firm favourite. There’s something beautiful about the simplicity of this love story – and I’m so proud to be sharing Donna and Paul’s wedding with you today because they used the lovely love story as a key theme for their wedding day.

UK wedding blog Belinda McCarthy Photography (2)I love weddings where the bride and groom think creatively. Whether it’s a handmade theme, or something different, artistic or alternative – creative weddings make my world go round. Today’s stunning bride and gorgeous groom are simply amazing. Their wedding theme stems from Paul’s childhood and from their very first Valentine’s day (not forgetting as far back as the Jurassic period, I guess!) – it’s a timeless tale of the most beautiful romance. I know you’ll love this and I’m sure you’ll take some great ideas from their wedding day to inspire your own – it’s all about creating a personalised wedding style and loving every minute of your day!

Hello you gorgeous lot! I have a treat for you today – as I’m having an amazing week I am full of the joys of spring (I’m also an optimist haha!) and I wanted to share an exclusive wedding calligraphy offer with English Wedding Blog readers this afternoon.

Wedding films always make me cry. I can’t help it! Romantic words of love from a groom, the exchange of vows, and a flutter of laughter just have me welling up every time!

Sarah & Steveo from Philip Smith on Vimeo.

Sarah and Steveo’s wedding film is no exception, and I thought I’d try and make you cry too this morning. It’s so lovely – Steveo’s speech will have you smiling and then surprise you into tears. With thanks to Philip Smith Visuals for sharing this gorgeous wedding film with us all today, and congratulations and huge thanks to Sarah and Steveo for sharing details of the wedding too!

Our wedding 10/11/12

140 guests celebrated our traditional style wedding with us. Everyone gathered at my home church of St. Peters in Great Totham, Essex for the ceremony followed by our reception at a barn conversion 3 miles from the church where we had a champagne reception with canapes followed by a traditional wedding breakfast, speeches and a disco.

I’m delighted to welcome my first brand new sponsor of 2013: Perdita’s Wed­ding Shoes have been sup­ply­ing brides, brides­maids and mother of the bride with beau­ti­ful shoes and acces­sories for over 12 years.

Unique wedding shoes by Perdita’s Wedding Shoes

Perdita’s are official stockists of Rainbow Club wedding shoes, and provide a dyeing service which means you can choose your favourite wedding shoe style and have it coloured to work with your wedding colour scheme.

A unique service from Perdita’s Wedding Shoes

I love that Perdita’s Wedding Shoes provide a truly bespoke service from their showroom: owner Karen told me, “Brides come along with their mums to our show­room espe­cially when they want to meet our designer and get some unique ideas to cre­ate a spe­cial look, some­thing they can call their own design.

“Some cus­tomer designs get taken on into our col­lec­tions and then the shoe is named after the bride which is a nice touch.

Hi there! Another real wedding for you to enjoy this morning – and I’m going to jump straight in as Kelly and Ian’s big day needs no introduction. The images of their day are beautiful, and Kelly’s shared a fantastic wedding report which you’ll see towards the end of the blog post (it’s about three-quarters of the way down the page).

It warms my heart to read about Kelly’s favourite wedding day moments. After talking about the incredible effort her dad made to prepare an amazing speech, she says,

I loved watching all of our friends and family enjoying themselves. You really can’t put a price on creating those memories.

The gorgeous wedding photographs are all by Yorkshire wedding photographer Mark Tierney, of Tierney Photography. Please leave a comment at the end of the blog post if you can – I’d love to hear from you and I know Kelly and Ian will too! Enjoy. Claire xxx
