This weekend sees the longest day of the summer – and I’ve been so excited to share this glorious June wedding with you lovely lot. Gorgeous couple Harriet & Harri were wed in North Shropshire, a very special place to them both, and chose our lovely friend Warren at Howell Jones Photography to capture their day.

Harriet is stunning in a unique and beautiful Tara Lauren gown From Heart Aflutter Bridal Boutique in East London, while Harri’s made to measure light wool suit is from Mr Start in Hackney, East London. Teamed with a favourite liberty print tie by a maker on Etsy and a simple rosemary + rose buttonhole, he looks fab! Harri’s flower crown completes the country wedding look beautifully.

What’s more important to you right now: the outside of your wedding dress, or the inside?

Whether you’re a perfectly proportioned beauty or a curvy girl like me, your wedding dress has a very important job to do – it has to make you look your best all through your wedding day. Maybe that’s showing off all your best bits, perhaps it’s hiding some little insecurities. And yes, fabric and embellishments and finish and straps and sparkly bits are what we fall in love with when it comes to wedding dresses. But there’s more. And it’s what’s inside a dress that will make you feel amazing on your wedding day. 

I had the loveliest chat with Rebecca from Birmingham bridal boutique TDR Bridal the other day, and learned about a million things about what’s inside a wedding dress, from boning to seams and how it all works to hold your dress in place and to make you feel incredible every second of your wedding day. Grab a cuppa – I want to share Rebecca’s passion and knowledge about wedding dress structure with you, and we’ll be here a few minutes!

Good morning lovelies! Have you had thunderstorms? We’re still waiting up here on the coast but I hear it’s been quite exciting in some parts of the country overnight… do send it my way, won’t you? I love lightning!

Today’s wedding is beautiful, and intimate – with only closest friends and family attending, and a wonderfully relaxed vibe. Guests were seated on armchairs for the ceremony, and the vibe was beautifully boho with a flavour of spring. I’ve been wondering if smaller weddings are set to become more popular in years to come… and Chloe and Michael’s day couldn’t be a more perfect example of an intimate wedding.

The bride is absolutely stunning in a San Patrick gown, with a full lace back. I adore her boho look and the flowers in her hair… isn’t she beautiful?

How did you choose your photographer?

I found Grace through recommendation, of both another photographer and one of Michael’s work colleagues who had their wedding photographed by her.
Once we’d had a browse through her website and spoken to her we knew she was the right photographer for us!

Welcome to Monday everyone! How was your weekend? I hope you’re staying safe and well with everything that’s going on in the world right now. As ever, I want English Wedding to be a beautiful distraction, an escape from the day-to-day and a little reminder that normal life – and love, and weddings! will resume in time. Today’s is Billy & Bessie, whose outdoor wedding at The Swan Hotel in Bibury sings of summer days and love and laughter. The bride and groom are gorgeous, the day is moments of love and magic, and the setting is insanely beautiful – the word “quintessentially” was invented for this place! Bessie told us overall the day was just perfect – “the best day of my life!!!” and for me today scrolling through Sam Bennett Photography‘s gorgeous images of their day has been an absolute joy.

An article by lovely Sian from Amethyst Weddings

Everyone’s been talking about eco-friendly and sustainable weddings recently. So is it a “trend” or are green weddings here to stay?

What makes a wedding eco friendly or sustainable?

By definition a wedding or event is eco friendly if there has been no harm or negative impact made to the environment. In reality it means to use services and suppliers that are conscious of the impact any product they use can have on the environment. They will have taken steps to eradicate these or have a plan in place to offset any negative effects. This can be done for example by donating to tree planting schemes or helping with local environmental projects if you have needed to use fuel for a car journey or similar.

Planning an eco friendly wedding isn’t as daunting or difficult as you probably thought.

What are the best ways to have an eco-friendly wedding or event? How do you find suppliers?

Morning lovely! Today we have a family-oriented wedding which is as beautifully styled as can be. Gorgeous bride Laura married her love Billy at the Saddleworth Hotel, Oldham. They involved their twins in the day, with daughter Eva reading a poem for the ceremony and bringing a tear to everyone’s eye – the family pictures are some of my absolute favourites. Styling touches are kept simple and elegant in white with foliage detail, and the stunning photography is by Jo Bradbury.

I loved the photographs from Jo, there was lots of natural spontaneous moments that Jo captured. From start to finish Jo was brilliant on the day and took all the pressure off Billy and I, I loved the woodland shots.

I LOVE a local wedding! Living on the edge of the Lake District is a dream. We’re there every weekend exploring the mountains (and valleys, right now!) and the landscape never fails to take my breath away. Needless to say, it’s my favourite place for weddings and so sharing Jen & Alex’s day with you today is soooo exciting! Most of all I love their day for its relaxed and elegant vibe. Beautiful bride Jen’s dress is non-traditional…. stunningly slinky with a daring thigh split and incredible back detail, it’s by Atelier Pronovias. Alex looks fantastic in chinos and a classic white shirt (because suits are NOT a rule…. or if they are, they’re the first rule to break! I love this look!) The gorgeous couple chose a few of my favourite suppliers for their day: lovely Helen Jane Smiddy was their photographer; Kevin from Brackens of Bowness (“the unofficial god of flowers”) provided their amazing florals, and talented Charlotte of Sugar Ruffles designed their gorgeous wedding cake.

With love,

I’m in love with today’s wedding. I’m in love with Gilly’s sparkly beautiful dress; I’m in love with the styling details and the story of Gilly and Den’s day. I’m in love with the gorgeous photography from lovely Hannah Larkin…. this is all just so wonderful and I have been ever so excited to share it with you! Before we dive into all the images though, I want to share something important with you.

Gilly told me she felt an enormous amount of pressure to have the most pinterest perfect styled wedding, because she thought that is what people would expect from her as a wedding planner. Den was amazing at keeping her grounded and reminding her that this was their day and they could do things however they liked.

I’m sharing this with you because Gilly and I both want to show that you can personalise your wedding too, so that your big day represents you as a couple. Don’t aim for perfect; instead, aim for a day which is personal, which says “THIS IS US!”

Good morning lovely! We have a week bursting full of weddings ahead – and today’s is fabulously glamorous, elegant and stylish. Gorgeous couple Emily and Adam tied the knot at Le Talbooth last May, choosing the very excellent D&A Photography to capture their day. Emily’s dress is a stunner – and the boys all look fantastic in black tie, don’t you think?

Relax & enjoy this beauty, it’s a special one!

Tell us about your venue – what made this place special for you?

We loved the simplicity of our venue, we felt like we didn’t need any extra decorations because the grounds were already so beautiful.

Hello lovelies, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have a beautiful wedding to share with you today: beautiful Sandie & Matt were married last September at The Ferry House Inn, and chose lovely Charlene Webb Photography to capture their day. Everything is elegant and carefully styled, the venue is pristine, and the beach shots are breathtaking! Sandie’s top tip is worth reading as well: “Mingle as a couple, rather than separately. Otherwise you’ll get so carried away chatting, that it’ll get to the end of the day when you realise you’ve spent barely any time together!” (a lesson learned at their engagement party!)

I hope this stunning wedding brightens your Monday and brings you some happiness and positive vibes! Stay safe,

With love,
