FEATURED

I’ve been so very lucky with the collaborations I’ve been asked to be a part of over the last couple of years. Working with talented people like Amy Swann and Jo Bradbury is an absolute dream – between them they transform my calligraphy by surrounding it with beauty. The florals in this blog post are out of this world – Fletcher & Foley we LOVE you!! I will forever be grateful to everyone I’ve had the pleasure to work with – and I hope there’ll be many more collaborations in the pipelines for the future. My calligraphy pens are ready!

Maunsel House in Somerset - see inside a real wedding with Linus Moran Photography (37)
FEATURED

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. We’ve had a brilliant couple of days visiting family and friends on the Cumbrian coast, and I’m ready for a week full of weddings, style ideas and glorious images to enjoy! We begin with gorgeous couple Melanie and Chad, who married at Maunsel House in the autumn. Lovely Somerset wedding photographer Linus Moran Photography sent this one in, and the super lovely couple have shared lots of fantastic tips and supplier recommendations with you too! Can you believe Melanie bought her flowers from a wholesaler and made her own bouquet?! Isn’t it beautiful?

Maunsel House in Somerset - see inside a real wedding with Linus Moran Photography (44)

The only decorations we wanted to do were in the pergola in the grounds of the house and even then we didn’t want to take away from the natural surroundings and the vines climbing the wooden pillars. So we just put together simple hanging glass baubles with dark green moss and led tea lights. Our place names and table names were all handmade, as well as all our flower arrangements and bouquets. My mum made a delicious Somerset apple chutney to go with our cheese tower cake, made using Bramley apples donated from her neighbour’s garden. Our flower girls’ crowns were made from bits and pieces from hobbycraft with help from my sister. We loved coming up with the ideas and designs and to have the personal touches all come together on the day made it that extra bit special.

Hey lovelies! I have a real treat of a wedding in store for you today! James and Anna’s best day ever is just fabulous. It has everything – a venue that takes my breath away; stunning styling and of course the most wonderful fun couple you can imagine. Huge thanks to our lovely friend and sponsor Special Day Wedding Photos for the images, and to gorgeous Anna & James for completing my little interview – don’t miss their brilliant top tips below the images. The venue is Anran in Devon, with tents from Devon Belles bringing a true festival vibe to the day.

How did you choose your photographer?

We tried a range of methods, from googling and using wedding supplier websites but in the end it was searching #devonweddingphotographer on Instagram that led us to Anthony. We loved Anthony’s style and after exploring his website of work as well, we arranged to meet with him.

Hello there lovelies! Does it feel as though spring time is on its way to you yet? No fear if not: we have a bunny on the blog today. Kinda. 😉 This is woodland wedding inspo with a city twist: the venue is The Terrace on Piccadilly and the bunny is from Easigrass! But we love him all the same. The shoot was organised and designed by key members of the UKAWP – the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners, whose members have been a big part of English Wedding since our launch back in 2009.

This group of talented wedding creatives from London came together to create a botanical wedding backdrop in the heart of the city. Photographer Neli Prahova captures it beautifully, from the flowers and styling by Anna Fern Weddings to the pretty Ananya Cards stationery and that stunning cake by Appletree Cake Design. The shoot’s artistic director was Valentina from The Stars Inside, a full service wedding design studio specialising in bespoke events across the UK and Europe. See the full supplier list below!

I am in awe of today’s feature bridal collection by renowned London designer Phillipa Lepley. These beautifully tailored, bespoke one-of-a-kind luxury wedding dresses are to die for – perhaps not within the average dress budget (take note before you fall in love with one of these, my lovelies!) but oh so dreamy to see and admire the intricate detailing and beautiful craftsmanship in every wedding dress. Admittedly these are the kind of dresses you’re more likely to see in Hello! than in You & Your Wedding… but I simply couldn’t resist sharing this with you and I hope you enjoy a little wedding indulgence with me today!

At Phillipa Lepley, 2018 marks the arrival of a large number of new, distinctively feminine, fabulous couture wedding dresses that you will never have seen anything like before. Each dress is delicately handcrafted in London at the Chelsea atelier using fabrics of the finest quality, from luxurious Italian Duchesse satin and intricate French lace to tulle uniquely embroidered as delicately as lace and in-house designed embellishment, displaying unparalleled artistry.

Reportage wedding photography has my heart. In the 10 years since English Wedding began I’ve seen thousands of weddings. They all have a story, they’re all personal and unique and beautiful. And the images which capture the spirit and story of a wedding are the images which will stand the test of time. Always.

So it’s with genuine pleasure that I’d like to introduce you to one of my favourite reportage wedding photographers in the UK. Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall specialises in reportage photography (otherwise known as documentary wedding photography, or wedding photojournalism) – his website is a brilliant place to go to see what reportage wedding photography is all about.

Wedding photography for couples who don’t want all that old fashioned, traditional setup stuff – but instead, want their wedding day captured in a series of natural, evocative images, that capture the atmosphere of the day. The story of the day. Natural, honest, unobtrusive reportage wedding photography.

Belvoir Castle near Grantham is a beautiful Regency Castle in the heart of England with breathtaking landscaped grounds. With striking sculptures, paintings and objets d’art, the Castle is a perfect backdrop for unique, stylish weddings and is also a popular film location, used in the ‘Young Victoria’ and most recently ‘Victoria and Abdul’. It really is an incredible venue to host your wedding.

Our blog feature comes from a group of English wedding suppliers who love Belvoir Castle and its rich history. Inspired by their surroundings, they created a wedding look to appeal to modern, stylish couples looking for sophistication and elegance but with a fresh twist. The team chose a romantic soft colour palette with faded hues of apricots, blush, lilacs and soft grey tones. The colours were inspired by the warm stone of Belvoir, and by the subtle colours in the Castle’s elegant interiors.

Everybody needs a little romance in their lives. But for newlyweds enjoying their first Valentine’s day, “a little romance” takes on a whole new dimension. Your brand new marriage comes with all kinds of exciting new experiences and memories. Wherever you are, you’ll want to make that first big romantic day special for both of you. Make your first Valentine’s day traditions as a couple exciting, with these seven ideas for a unique Valentine’s Day.

1. Make Your Date A Tradition

It’s tempting to go big on your very first valentines, but if you’re just married bear in mind, there’s something nice about building your own traditions. Maybe you have a favorite restaurant that’s perfect for the two of you. Maybe you both love hiking, or foreign films. On your first Valentine’s day as a couple, try something traditional that’s also completely you. Make it something you can take a day off for, even if you’re still in the exciting throes of your honeymoon, and get reconnected with the humble beginnings of your relationship with a cheesy romantic date that can take you back, and will fit into your new family traditions!

Happy Monday, lovelies! How was your weekend? Did you see our FOUR features on English Wedding this weekend? Huge thanks to Jordanna Marston Photography for sharing her best 10 London wedding venues with us on Saturday – that was fab! And we LOVED the sustainable wedding inspiration shoot on Saturday morning. Lovely Charlene‘s wedding videos (Love Gets Sweeter) made the blog look so lovely on Sunday. Meanwhile, we have been sofa shopping and then walking in the mountains… a weekend of two halves! I’m pooped – but happy to be at my desk again and ready to share some wedding loveliness with you today!

Jenn and Jon were married in September at Barley Wood in Somerset, and chose lovely English Wedding member Howell Jones Photography to capture their day. Jenn told us the venue is owned by the YMCA and all the proceeds go back into the charity. They train apprentices on site who look after the grounds and the venue – they have a really relaxed, laid back attitude, but give great constructive advice and support.
