Blush, peach and gold wedding inspiration with Steph Yeo Photography on the English Wedding Blog (13)
FEATURED

Happy Saturday everyone! What are your plans? I’m really excited – I’m on a sten do this weekend, it’s going to be brilliant… and we’re outside all day so the sunshine is an absolute bonus!! But can you believe it’s going to be July tomorrow?! Me neither… let’s see June out in style, shall we? Today’s inspirational feature comes from lovely Steph Yeo Photography, based in Yorkshire. The styling is rustic and romantic – a beautiful mix to inspire the growing number of couples celebrating their weddings in converted barn wedding venues and still looking for elegance and a dash of fairytale… it’s beautiful and I hope you love it as much as I do!

With the popularity of barn venues rising for the modern day bride and groom, The Barns in East Yorkshire is a perfect wedding venue. Close to the river bank the venue is spread over two barns, with an outdoor firepit and lots of fairy lights.

Can you imagine an outside wedding at a working watermill? It sounds blissful… and for Nigel & Jade it really was a dream day. I love the glamour and elegance of their day at Priston Mill, a beautiful venue just outside Bath and Bristol with two gorgeous locations for your wedding and reception – the the barn and watermill are both glorious – and I’m thrilled to say our friend and sponsor Bristol wedding photographer Martin Dabek comes very highly recommended for both, as a regular Priston Mill wedding photographer! Our bride and groom are gorgeous; their day is super elegant with sparkle, their first dance is awesome and you’ll LOVE the last photo in the set…

We had seen his work after our friends had him for their wedding. We did look around and spoke to other photographers, but loved Martin’s work the most so decided he was the one we wanted to capture our big day.

I’m secretly loving the fact that it’s not only wedding season right now, it’s beginning to feel like elopement season too. If you’re considering it – just do it! And if you need convincing, check out this week’s TWO elopement features on the English Wedding Blog. The first we featured on Tuesday (Daryl & Kathryn in Canada) and the second is here for you right now. Gorgeous girls Marta & Zoe have been together for 9 years, but with Marta’s family being in Brazil the girls won’t have a big wedding over here. Instead, wedding photographer Verity Westcott and a team of lovely suppliers joined forces to create a beautiful elopement styled shoot with all the ‘trimmings’!

Cornwall is the most beautiful location, don’t you think? Where would you elope, if you could?

I’ve been vegetarian for half my life, and I’m finding myself gradually taking more steps towards becoming vegan. It’s super hard. I don’t drink milk at home, or eat eggs… but when I’m dining out it’s almost impossible here in the Lake District to find dairy alternatives or vegan menu choices. So when these tips from Niki Webster, founder of RebelRecipes.com landed in my inbox, I was delighted! I would love to see more weddings even catering for vegans, and the idea of a fully vegan wedding is a wonderful thing to me.

I was at a family wedding last year, sat next to my vegan cousin. The wedding was amazing, the venue absolutely beautiful – we had the best day. But has anyone else noticed that vegetarian options at weddings turn up last? That’s generally after every guest, at every table, has been served their meaty starter or main. There’s an element of suspense… will it be goat’s cheese tart? (The answer is always yes, by the way.) and when the food arrives, it’s nice if not incredible. My vegan cousin had to wait at least another five minutes after my veggie main course came out, and his food kind of surprised me. His starter had been a plate of colourful fresh salad with carrots and beetroot and tomatoes and leaves – it looked delicious. His main… the same thing, on a bigger plate.

So this is the English Wedding Blog… and I try to make every feature useful for all of you wonderful UK brides and grooms out there looking for ideas for your big day. I rarely feature destination weddings, although we’ve been known to skip across the borders to France, Italy, and of course Scotland, Wales and Ireland for a beautiful celebration feature. Never Canada though, despite it being one of the most amazing destinations and top of my list of places I’d love to visit in the entire world. When Daryl and Kathryn sent me these images of their breathtaking mountain elopement for the blog, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you. Somehow they slipped through a gap in my editorial schedule and I’ve kept these beauties from you since January. Is their Canadian elopement relevant to UK brides and grooms? Yes!!! I now believe we should all elope to Canada. Ditch all your other plans and just look at this…

Gatsby vintage wedding at Crockwell Farm, images by Jodie Cooling Photography (23)

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? I have to admit… I’ve been attacked by a horsefly and am typing with a right arm the size of one of my legs… eeeeekk!! I’m mainly wearing ice packs today! (Is it just me?!) Luckily I don’t particularly need my elbow to blog and bring you amazing weddings, and boy do we have something special to share today! I’ve been keeping gorgeous couple Becky and Sam up my sleeve for a few weeks now – their fabulously vintage, Great Gatsby inspired, home crafted, personal wedding at Crockwell Farm is definitely going down as one of my favourites of 2018 so far.

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re having a happy, sunny day, wherever you are. I actually wrote this yesterday because I’m planning to be on my way down from a big mountain in time for Sunday lunch… which means a dawn start! Eeek! So anyway – these two are one of my favourite couples because they really didn’t conform to the ‘normal’ wedding expectations (and for me that word normal isn’t the most exciting of words, so this is a good thing!) Alice describes their day as ‘unweddingy’ – and this makes me very happy. Safe to say most wedding bloggers are on a bit of a mission to encourage couples to do things their way – and for me at least, wearing something completely different to a standard wedding dress is a brilliant place to start! Needless to say, Alice looks incredibly beautiful; Sam’s gorgeous and together they made their wedding as perfect as can be. Images are by English Wedding Directory member Siobhan H Photography.

Manor Barn Stonehenge wedding inspiration with Photography by Louisa Jane (33)

The summer solstice has been and gone… but I’ve been saving up something really special to mark the occasion. I’d have loved to visit Stonehenge in the days before it was a mega visitor centre – sadly my chance has passed, but I do still believe there’s a magic in the beautiful rolling hills nearby. Lucky enough to be situated on the edge of the Stonehenge world heritage site and set in the grounds of a 17th century manor house, The Manor Barn has been sympathetically restored to the highest possible standards as a charmingly timeless wedding venue.

Today’s editorial comes from lovely Pippa at The Manor Barn, along with a bunch of fabulously talented local wedding suppliers who collaborated to set the scene for an elegant spring wedding with edgy and beautiful contemporary touches. It’s one of my favourite shoots so far this year – and as such it was a key feature in the English Wedding Bible at the beginning of this month.

2019 wedding styling ideas Devon with Clare Kinchin Photography (33)
FEATURED

Hints of today’s faded beauty editorial appeared in the English Wedding Bible at the beginning of the month – call it a sneak peek. There is so much more I’ve been so excited to share with you, and the styling is right up my street, created by lovely Nikki from Knots & Kisses. Her concepts are simply stunning – her eye for wedding styling is exceptional. The stationery and cake just blow my mind! Here’s Nikki to tell you more…

2019 wedding styling ideas Devon with Clare Kinchin Photography (1)

The inspiration for the shoot started with a visit to the wonderful Great Fulford and the beautiful but slightly dilapidated rooms with their bare brick and peeling plaster. It automatically evoked feelings of Great Expectations for me and Miss Havisham’s dining room. A feel of faded beauty and elegance which I thought would be a beautiful backdrop for a shoot.

My aim was to inspire couples to realise the opportunity to set their wedding in more unusual places than your average manor house – that industrial and run down spaces could be the perfect backdrop for a wedding.

So many people have mentioned these to me recently, I couldn’t help but have a closer look! My M&M’s® are one of the best innovations in wedding favours – and the guys in their marketing team were kind enough to send me a very generous handful* to review for you!

*bucketful. Although there aren’t many left, I must admit…

Weirdly enough, two of our couples on the blog in the last seven days have chosen personalised My M&M’s® for their favours – lovely Martin & Paul had their faces printed on theirs along with their initials and wedding date. Hannah & Ben chose light purple and yellow coloured sweets and had them printed with their wedding date and a photo too!

Rainy English barn wedding with Christy Blanch Photography (32)
FEATURED

Gorgeous bride Lizzie and hubby Chris got married at the very lovely Kingscote Barn, Gloucestershire. It rained all day but they had so much fun, and the styling touches are just lovely – in white and green, with fabulous floral displays and the most amazing table plan. Favours were mini scented soy candles, which is the sweetest idea, don’t you think?

Kingscote Barn didnt need much styling as it is such a beautiful venue. But I did have a fantastic wedding stylist, English Wedding Directory member The Little Wedding Helper (Kirsten Butler) did such a great job. Her collaboration with Bijoux Floral Design (Becci Hobbs), signsandstationerylove (Tamsin Yates) created the most amazing table plan! Bijoux Floral Design did such an amazing job with our flowers! Becci was incredible, and really made my vision a reality.
