The big debate: children and weddings. Some think a wedding wouldn’t have the atmosphere without them, and others couldn’t think of anything worse than having a swarm of children ‘aeroplaning’ all over the dance floor. I think I’m somewhere in between..

As I’ve mentioned, David and I have a young daughter, Vivienne, and the wedding is around a week before her second birthday. My initial concern was that she would simply refuse to wear the gorgeous headband I have bought for her, the second was that she wouldn’t hold Evelyn’s (David’s niece) hand and be wary of walking down the aisle in front of the congregation, and the third was that she would have to wear a cream dress all day, bearing in mind that she enjoys rubbing banana in her hair and turning our dining room into a scene reminiscent of a chimp’s tea party. And then it dawned on me, the most important problem with children at weddings, especially young children, is trying to keep them entertained.

This week Billy‘s been reading the wedding photography blog of lovely lady Hannah Dornford-May and this is a favourite photo which gives a real taste – sorry – of a gorgeous wedding full of lovely details.
Wedding Cheesecake from Hannah Dornford May photographyThere’s this lovely wedding cheese cake, and delicious looking cupcakes as well. And the details from this lovely wedding include a wall of vintage clocks, old family photographs and stationery from Hummingbird Cards – it’s gorgeous.

Hannah Dornford-May shot this wedding alongside wedding photographer Sam Clayton whose blog will also be featuring here very soon!

I’d like to introduce you all to a wedding blogger I love! This is Louise, who blogs at A wedding in wellies. I love reading her blog because she’s a real bride to be with a brilliant sense of humour. I can’t recommend Louise’s wedding blog enough!

I asked Louise if she’d like to write a guest post for English Wedding and she said yes. I still can’t stop grinning at that! So from one brilliantly inspiring bride to be: wedding tips for all you brides and grooms out there. Enjoy 🙂

My wedding tips- Louise from A wedding in wellies

Hello Claire!

With just six weeks left until the big day, dare I say it, everything seems pretty much sorted and in place. And considering we’ve only had a budget of £5,000 to spend, I think we’re doing ok.

We’re keeping it simple, with just 50 guests (close friends and family) and the reception will be a party in a marquee in my mom’s wonderful garden with a hog roast buffet. And because the food and venue are such a bargain, we’ve been able to afford to hire a small bar and make it special with our own little touches.

Today Billy‘s found us a little bit of inspiration in the form of this pretty photograph from From Our Hearts To Our Hands.

Madeleine regal inspired bridal tiara from Olivier Laudus

Olivier Laudus bridal accessories in the UKAn interesting title for a post: shouldn’t the title be “bridal accessories fit for a princess”? Well perhaps not quite (if these were full of the very best diamonds and precious stones they would be) – but that’s not what this blog post is about. This is simply about a gem of a wedding business: ethics, customer service and dedication.

Every once in a while I meet someone who really inspires me. While I’ve blogged Oliver Laudus designs and accessories before, I had only spoken to Sangeeta Laudus online (on twitter and by email). We had a long chat a weekend or two ago, and having originally wanted to feature the new bridal tiaras from Olivier Laudus I knew I had to write a bit more about an inspiring, ethical and admirable wedding supplier.

Nothing conveys the atmosphere of a wedding day more than a little music, and that’s why I love watching wedding films. This one’s a special treat though, as Cristina and MP’s Aviemore wedding film really matches the music to the rapidly changing spirit of their wedding day!

From the madcap crazy antics of the boys getting ready to the serenity and quiet excitement of the girls’ preparation in the morning, to the wedding vows in church and then the party afterwards, the film by Love Gets Sweeter captures the moments and accompanies them in style.

Charlene from Love Gets Sweeter warned me the music is “a bit marmite” and I was intrigued. Turns out I bloody love marmite! I think you might just love this too… takes a bit of talent to fit a wedding film to a soundtrack like this one but it’s beautifully done!

Days to go: 35

I don’t know why I had such a hard time with earrings for the big day but safe to say my troubles are over!

As you know I managed to find the beautiful vintage style rose studs from a website and shop based in Australia (still waiting for these but they have been dispatched!) and then found some cheap small crystal studs to wear in four more earring holes. For some reason I was set on wearing a small red heart in my highest earring hole and after searching HIGH AND LOW I found that no one sells what I had in mind! So, it was time for a cheeky see-if-someone-can-do-a-bespoke-order!

Tatty Devine are a small little company based in London that make amazing art jewellery. Tatty Bojangles talks about them here. (By the way Tatty Bojangles has recently set up a new website showcasing all that is stylish and vintage about Hen Dos – forget the L plates and flashing tiaras! More on this after my hen do I think!)

This is more about love than weddings (but then, weddings should also be more about love than about weddings, shouldn’t they! So it works nicely).

This is a wedding I love for its character. Emma and Andy’s wedding day looks like so much fun! They’ve used their imaginations to create a day with a cool British theme – lots of red and blue – with a countryside twist: welly wanging being a definite highlight!

  • Groom's view - the best things about marriage: "Looking at my ring finger every day to see the ring and what it means to us. Being able to introduce Rowena as my Wife as opposed to the girlfriend! Having the lady that I fell in love with at pretty much first glance now being my wife. Coming home after work and just talking to one another spending time as a three with our 3 and a half year old daughter."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
