Prepare to be wowed by some of the most luxurious contemporary wedding invitations you’ll see this year. Incorporating stunning and on-trend velvets and acrylics, Polina Perri have launched these spectacular new collections for the modern bride and groom. The timeless, elegant calligraphy fonts and pristine printing work beautifully alongside innovative, sought after finishes: the acrylic is chic and somehow delicate-looking, while the velvet is tantalisingly tactile. I simply couldn’t resist showing you these as soon as they arrived in my inbox!

Hey beautiful! Welcome to the weekend… and with an early morning blog post because I simply couldn’t wait any longer to share this with you! Wonderful Sussie Mellstedt sent in this dreamy editorial full of spring florals and with a breathtaking bespoke wedding dress by Velvet Johnstone. Delicious florals by Iris & Co complement the dress perfectly, and the wonderfully natural images just go to show that a little rain can never dampen the beauty of an English wedding.

The theme of the shoot was bohemian and spring.

The lovely bouquet was made by Iris & co. Gemma had picked springy colours such as orange, yellow and purple.

The beautiful model Sian was wearing a stunning dress called “velveteeni” that was created by Velvet Johnstone, a wedding designer based in Hackney.

Shall we give Friday an amazing send off with a beautiful real wedding?  I have this one up my sleeve – stunning bride Amy and her dapper hubby George, who were married at Fanhams Hall in Hertfordshire. They chose our friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography to capture their day – and the images tell the loveliest story of a fabulous, elegant and fun wedding!

I love the atmosphere of Fanhams Hall: it’s a wonderfully historical venue with that unmistakeable Great Hall – an awe inspiring setting for a wedding breakfast. Amy & George held their ceremony in the Long Gallery at Fanhams before moving into the Great Hall for the celebrations afterwards. They decorated tables minimally with ivy and fairy lights – sweet and simple for a (dare I say it?) December wedding!

Huge thanks to Nicola Norton for sharing this day with us, and to Amy & George for letting us share their day on English Wedding!

I just LOVE it when Rosalind Miller shares a new wedding cake collection with us! It’s like a snapshot into the world of wedding cake trends – so scroll through this entire post if you’re looking for cake ideas for your 2020 wedding. Big trends right now are painted cakes (and Rosalind’s floral illustrated cake is a beauty!), single tier, minimalist cakes and showstopping cakes with metallic finishes. Vegan brides and grooms will be happy to hear Rosalind has introduced two vegan wedding cakes to her collection – and they look stunning!

Weddings aren’t just for women. The wedding industry often ignores grooms – focusing every publication and brand on all things pink, pretty and romantic. But there are two halves to every wedding, and I think it’s a fairly safe bet that over half of the humans getting married wouldn’t choose pale blush and ivory as the most important aspects of their day.

Think about it.

So I love seeing weddings where real life stands at the forefront. Moments, smiles, emotions, interactions between all the human beings who are there. Being a blogger means I know a lot of photographers: most folks I follow on instagram happen to be wedding photographers. And I get to see their other work: the real life things they capture* and my favourite of all, their street photography. And when this style creeps into a wedding it is one of the best things EVER.

You don’t like them*, but you think you probably want them*. For your mum, or your gran, or his auntie and all the people who love the family gathering aspect of weddings above anything else. You dread them* – but secretly you know that in 20 years time you will have a tear in your eye as they* become rare and treasured memories of your loved ones. And you worry a little, because you’re not sure if taking them* is going to be a bore, or a bit shouty and embarrassing, or if your uncle Raymond is going to disappear for a fag while it’s all going on (true story!) – but you know it’s a thing and it has to be done

* You guessed it – “they” are wedding group shots. And they’re a bit of a thing!

We are pulling out ALL the stops today to make your Monday as beautiful as a Monday could ever be. Delectable details, divine styling touches and fine art wedding images to fill your hearts and delight your happy eyes!

Now I do adore details. The soft movement of a piece of silk or lace, the gentle flow, like waves, of a torn piece of cotton rag paper – and a stroke of calligraphy. Gently shining jewellery and accessories, the sheer perfection of a delicate bloom or a tendril of foliage escaping from a bouquet: these things make me happy.

Sent in by a team of creative wedding suppliers in the north west of England, today’s blog feature explores fine art styling and dreamy close ups to showcase a vintage inspired wedding look in a modern setting. Images are by lovely Jo Bradbury Photography, and words are by talented lingerie and veil designer Maxine of Bride Sew Beautiful.

Have you ever booked a wedding photographer before? Nope – me neither! So it’s tricky to know if you’re asking all the right questions, and to be sure exactly what you need – especially when it comes to timings. Do you need “all day coverage”? Or are you allowed to just book your photographer for a shorter length of time? The standard is for your photographer to capture a few images as you’re getting ready with your girls and best guys, and for him or her to leave just after the first dance. But things are changing… and especially with documentary style photography it’s kind of fun if your photographer can stay a little longer (because seriously, as a couple you’ll be a little self conscious for the first dance… but by the tenth dance you and your besties will ROCK that dance floor, right?!!)

Lovely Annelie Eddy Photography published a great feature on her blog about how long you should book your wedding photographer for. Here’s a version of that post but do, please check out the original too!

English-Wedding.com is the ONLY UK wedding blog to have a truly regional focus. The blog is bursting with fabulous real weddings to inspire your own day – probably, if you search the blog, from the very same venue where you’ll be having your wedding! So we wanted to take that local focus a little further today, and with help from Buckinghamshire wedding photographer Damion Mower, we’ve rounded up 8 fabulous REAL home counties weddings from some of the best wedding venues in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey to share with you!

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful barn wedding in Berkshire or a fabulous Hertfordshire stately home, a quirky venue with classic touches or an outdoor ceremony – wedding venues in the home counties have it ALL. Some are on country estates away from the hustle and bustle, while others are closer to major towns and cities – and each has a character all of its own.
