Charlotte & Sean’s wedding is simply glorious, with beautiful August sunshine and elegant muted, nude and pastel styling, and some wonderfully romantic moments. The florals are stunning, Pentney Abbey looks fantastic – and there are giggles too (scroll down to see Charlotte’s epic bouquet throw!) An absolutely wonderful wedding with the most amazing images by our friend Rob Dodsworth Photography. Charlotte told us it was “the most romantic summer’s day of my life” – what a beautiful memory to have.

How did you choose your photographer?

We chose Rob based on a recommendation from a friend.

Were you pleased with your wedding photographer? Do tell… we love a brilliant review!

Absolutely! Rob is funny and we instantly felt at ease with him. We didn’t feel awkward on camera because Rob made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and when he wasn’t taking photos of us, he was in the background naturally capturing the moments that made up our special day.

A guest article by our lovely English Wedding member Love Invited

Love Invited has created hundreds of wedding stationery designs for couples over the past 10 years, and owner Amanda Williams has hand-picked some of the most creative ideas she has worked on, for on the day stationery.

1. Sweet table – Love is sweet please take a treat…

If you’ll be satisfying your guests’ sweet tooth with a selection of candy and chocolate bags for them to enjoy, then some cute signage encouraging your guests to help themselves because love is sweet is another very popular option, and we can definitely see why!

2. Dancing feet – If your feet are tired and sore, grab a pair and dance some more

Little touches like these are what really make a wedding. When the dreaded heels start to rub halfway through the night, but you’re not done dancing –how amazing that your wedding couple have provided flip flops for you

3. Confetti – Spread some love

Today’s gorgeous pair Jessica & Rhys were married at Chelsea Old Town Hall in September, describing their wedding as “a magical day surrounded by our favourite people in the world.” They both love classic styling, but most importantly wanted a relaxed affair with no stress about specific styling themes – the most important thing was to enjoy the moment with their loved ones.

Jessica’s bridal look is just stunning: “I knew I wanted to wear separates as it was a more relaxed affair. I had been searching high and low for the perfect full length silk skirt and found the one I wore on Instagram via Belle & Bunty who have the sweetest little shop in Kentish Town. I ended up pairing the skirt with a matching silk cami and lace long sleeved top, both also from Belle & Bunty. I loved the contrast of this outfit with my Mallorca dresses and the lace made me feel like Grace Kelly on her wedding day! Elegant and sophisticated.”

Mondays are always better when you stuff them full of the most incredible flowers, don’t you think? Today’s wedding inspiration comes from rural Berkshire, and features pretty, modern wedding styling from a super talented bunch of suppliers.

Lovely Sigi Kirkpatrick shared her stunning images with us, and told us a little about the concepts behind the beautiful ideas you’re about to see. Happy Monday, lovelies!

Are you looking for something different – and not just ‘different’ to mean quirky, but different to mean actually unique, tailored to you?

Whatever your tastes, there WILL be a brilliant wedding venue just waiting for you to discover its charms… and we’ve spent the morning discovering ten of England’s coolest wedding venues for you to fall right in love with.

Guest article by Entertainment Nation

2020 marks the beginning of a new swathe of trends, and some revivals, as we ring in a new decade. The major wedding trend will be sustainability; something which will likely influence the wedding entertainment choices of the year.

The main thing, trend or not, is to make an impact on your guests with wedding entertainment that stands out, and suits you as a couple.

What we’re seeing, though, is that there are 10 wedding entertainment trends that are proving particularly popular in 2020. Read on to find our top trends for wedding entertainment in the UK this year:

1. Festival-style folk bands

Still riding the folky high brought about by the likes of Mumford & Sons and… well, Mumford & Sons, festival-style folk bands bring a touch of high-energy, summery fun to a family wedding.

Fitting with a more traditional tone, folk bands, with their largely acoustic instruments, will complement the natural tones likely to be found at a sustainability-driven wedding.

THREE fabulous dresses, delicious styling, and a celebration filled with pure joy – this is just one of the most wonderful, captivating weddings we’ve ever seen. I am head over heels with Priyal and Dan’s day, and I hope you will love it too! The photos really do speak for themselves – but don’t miss Dan & Priyal’s interview at the end of the feature. It’s a bit of a treat for me when a groom fills out our interview form, and Dan’s words are a lovely read: from the tear in his eye as he saw Priyal walking down the aisle, to his delight when she was the first to make a speech, to his very excellent tip about not drinking 3 vodka shots after the first dance… Images are by the awesome MIKI Studios, who I am thrilled to say are members of English Wedding.

As it’s actually SNOWING outside today (anyone else?!!) I can’t think of anything more appropriate than a reindeer for this morning’s blog! So snuggle into your cosiest woollies and grab a hot chocolate – because this wintery wedding inspo is just perfect! Images are by lovely Chantel at Photography by Chantel, who worked alongside a talented group of suppliers in the Old Milking Parlour at Cavokay House to bring you this gorgeous editorial full of candles and textures: winter foliage, wooden pillar candlesticks and mercury glass combine to make a charming and welcoming wedding table.

Styling is by Rustic Rentals: “I elected to keep the props and styling very minimal with the focus on the re-use of vintage and modern décor items to highlight how both vintage and modern hire items can be incorporated and upcycled. My style tends to be minimal, rustic chic where I love to combine different textures such as velvets, chiffons and metallics paired with vintage pressed glass, vintage brass and gold modern accessories alongside candles in different sizes and tonal colours. I also like to use items not always used at weddings such as the Vintage Indian cart made from a Vintage Indian door, a vintage door from The Old Milking Parlour used as a table on vintage builders trestles and a beautiful vintage peacock chair.

These two are the most adorable couple – beautiful and happy on their wedding day. Philippa is stunning in her 1920s style dress – and wonderfully honest about her experience of finding ‘the one’ when it comes to dress shopping. Their photographer was our lovely friend Grace Elizabeth, whose images are simply breathtaking. You will LOVE this! Have a magical weekend everyone! xxx

How did you choose your photographer?

Philippa’s sister-in-law is a photographer so she helped us understand what we were looking for. She managed to get us a shortlist of 20 or so photographers who were available on our Wedding Day which we went through and picked our favourites. Grace Elizabeth was the first one we got in touch with and within a couple of hours we’d spoken on the phone, decided she was definitely the one for us and booked her!

Deliciously contemporary styling, the most beautiful sparkle and crazily amazing florals everywhere – this is an absolute dream of a style feature from a team of super talented Wiltshire wedding suppliers.

Asian fusion wedding style from Euridge Manor in Wiltshire (5)

Love meets the romantic Lost Orangery at Euridge Manor in Wiltshire. The Lost Orangery, a highly sought after wedding venue for exclusive weddings, is the perfect backdrop for any Asian fusion wedding.

Seating guests up to 200 in the Ballroom. And room for any type of marquee you wish to take your guests beyond the 200 mark. On a May morning, we created a romantic, country garden fusion wedding shoot. The idea behind the shoot was to showcase how you can take two cultures and bring them together to create a very romantic English style wedding.
