So your best friend is getting married. What do you buy as a wedding gift? Shopping for a perfect wedding gift can be daunting, but when it comes to a close friend, there can be even more pressure to find the perfect gift.

You not only want to find the perfect gift for the happy couple, but you want one that will also signify the many years of friendship you have shared. The gift should always be thoughtful, but you shouldn’t spend time stressing over it, as sometimes the most meaningful gifts are often ones that are not expensive. Of course, you don’t want to get something that just anybody can buy. See more...
I love Rachael & Darren’s wedding – the dress code of black tie for all the guys makes it super gorgeous and I adore the venue – such a perfect fit with the elegant styling of the day! Our stunning bride and handsome groom styled the venue with lush creamy white hydrangeas and roses, candles, sequined table runners and mirrors.
The overall look is fabulously done: it’s elegant and timeless, and the black tie dress code makes it look so chic and decadent – reminiscent of 1920s old Hollywood style! Colour accents are kept really simple with gold and blush styling touches perfectly complementing the glamorous look of the beautiful bride and groom. See more...
Did you see the genius that was Hannah and Ian‘s wedding cake table at the beginning of the month? They had three ‘cakes’ – beautifully displayed to fit the styling of their autumn wedding, but while the tiers were all there, these weren’t traditional wedding cakes by any means.
Some of us don’t like cake so much. Some of us would rather have a savoury snack than spend £300+ on a wedding cake. That’s fine… especially when, like Hannah and Ian, you can substitute pork pies (tiered – so they’re beautiful!) or a cheese selection. Yum, right? See more...
Today’s beautiful bride Alexandra describes her wedding to Elikem as “a collage of vintage pastels, silver screen, Motown and total euphoria!” – don’t you just love that?! Their day was themed around Motion Pictures. “El and I are huge film fans so our invites looked like movie tickets and each table was named after one of our favourite films.”
Due to the time of year I researched and suddenly came across the idea of having dried flowers which were so different. I had never seen a Bride before with dried flowers and the bouquets on The Artisan Dried Flower Company‘s website were stunning. The flowers really complimented El’s tweed suit too. See more...
Some blogs are all about the blogger. Others are all about the content, the ideas and inspiration – and every day I try to make the English Wedding Blog all about YOU. I use this space to reach out to brides and grooms and to wedding suppliers; to introduce you to each other, and to inspire all of you with new ideas for creative weddings.
So it’s not about me. I like to think I just curate this beautiful space on the internet, with help from all of the lovely English Wedding Directory members, with input from brides and submissions from wonderful creatives throughout the UK. And there simply wouldn’t be a blog here if it wasn’t for all of your beautiful contributions. See more...
