Today we’re sharing the loveliest English country house wedding style with you – a theme I adore and which is popular every single year with you lovely lot. The ideas come from a talented group of local wedding suppliers around Nurstead Court in Kent. There’s so much inspiration to take away from it – from the styling and stationery, to the dresses and shoes and flowers. The sublime images are by Michaelangelo, with fabulously romantic flowers by Bohotanical, cakes from Ever After Wedding Cakes, and showstopping designer dresses by Diana Elizabeth Bridal. Watch out for the pretty accessories by lovely Lorna Green, which are just adorable!

Back in July, myself and a huge team of mainly Kent-based suppliers organised a bit of an epic styled wedding shoot at a cute little venue called Nurstead Court.  It has a real English country house feel to it with some period pieces and areas (like a piano and a lovely panelled library) as well as some lovely grounds.  This was a real collaborative effort and we were there the whole day!

Happy Friday folks! What are your plans for the weekend? We’ll be relaxing after a tough week of man flu, I think!! But let’s hark back to the summer months, shall we? Beautiful Leila & her gorgeous groom Mike had a laid back outdoor wedding in June at the very lovely Shortmead House in Biggleswade, which is set in the Bedfordshire countryside. It had a very English country garden feel, which photographer Lorna Newman has captured beautifully for us. I hope you love this stunning summer wedding as much as I do!

All images are by lovely Lorna Newman, whose style is wonderfully fun and creative – her romantic shots throughout the day from morning through to sunrise are just divine. The wedding was non-traditional, very beautiful and relaxed, it was just perfect. 

“I had always loved Grace Loves Lace dresses but never thought I would have had the chance to try one let along buy one! They opened a showroom in London and it went from there…

The key emerging trend for 2019 weddings right now seems to be minimalism – simple styling and elegant touches, with a focus on quality rather than quantity of styling touches! Tables and place settings can be kept beautifully clean with minimal fuss and subtle colours, bridal styling is only subtly hued and florals are soft, lush and green. Simplicity is beautiful; understated is our dream wedding look for the coming year!

Rock the Frock Bridal provided two dresses – a modern style from Mila Mira, taking elements from traditional bridal styling and with a taupe lining. We love the second look, with a two-piece top and skirt by Zetterberg Couture. Make up was by Clarissa Clary, with the look kept soft and neutral with hair by Jennie in a soft braided up-do. The hairline is by PS With Love, and veil from lovely Sash & Veil.

Finding the perfect wedding gift is no easy task. It takes a lot of thought and consideration to find that unique present for newlyweds that’s not just another boring kitchen appliance off the wedding registry.

No-one knows this more than our CEO and founder of Truly Experiences, Jack Huang.

The South East is glorious place to get married: it’s home to countless fabulous venues, from majestic stately homes, to rustic converted barns, to dramatic coastal retreats, to ultra-chic cosmopolitan spaces in the nation’s capital.

The South East also happens to host a thriving wedding music scene. There’s an abundance of awe-inspiringly talented wedding bands and musicians located throughout the region, all competing with one another, driving the standard of performance ever higher.

As you’d imagine, London is the heart of this vibrant live music scene, but you’ll also find local wedding bands for hire for venues in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex.

Why is hiring local musicians important? It isn’t crucial, but by opting for a local South East wedding band you’re getting some very real benefits:

  • Your band won’t have had to endure a mammoth journey to get to you and will thus be fresh to give their best performance

Good morning, beautiful! Today we’re sharing a key look for 2019 weddings – one that can be recreated easily once you ‘get’ the styling concepts – and one I know will make 2019 a year of weddings to remember. It’s all about understated elegance with careful attention to a few quality details. For me this is a look of almost effortless wedding style – combining simple, minimal details with the smallest touches of real luxury and softness. The florals are absolutely key: delicate and feminine blooms in a soft palette of ivory, nude, blush and soft peach with pops of glorious coral. Texture comes from hare’s tail grasses and striking white anthuriums, while white lilac and butterfly ranunculus bring softness to the look. The colours are what I love most about today’s floral design: those carefully arranged coral blooms really make the arrangements look contemporary and luxurious, don’t you think?

Happy Monday lovelies! How cold has it been this weekend though?! Even today I’m in my snuggliest jumper and slipper boots (the joy of working from home!) – but as ever, the beauty of a wedding blog is that we can take you back to warm summer days! And I have a beauty of a farm wedding for you today, with a (genius or what?!) chicken and egg theme. The cake is one of my fave details – and our beautiful bride and groom are here to tell you all about their day.

“We used our agricultural barn and the Mother of the bride and her friends used flowers and foliage from their gardens, fairy lights and our handmade bunting to transform the barn. Guests were seated on hay bales with handmade cushions which I made with my cousin and Great grandmothers quilted throws.

Do you celebrate Halloween? Here at English Wedding HQ I love the old belief in fairies and spirits – it’s said they can reach us more easily tonight than at any other time in the year… so I see it as a time to pray for loved ones lost; to celebrate their lives and look back on precious times and memories shared. It’s also a lovely opportunity to cook pumpkin stuff – I actually spent a few happy moments writing on a little pumpkin in my calligraphy class the other week! Anyway – before I begin today’s blog post I have a request for wedding stylists and photographers – I would love to feature this year’s Halloween weddings on the blog this time next year. If you’re styling or shooting a wedding today, please consider submitting it for publication on English Wedding next year. We don’t need ghosts and goths (although, that would be pretty awesome!) – I’m looking for weddings with orange, autumnal or pumpkin styling ideas to inspire our readers. Thank you!

They say weddings are all about the love, the romance, the emotions and moments… and then someone shows me THESE BALLOONS and suddenly weddings are all about that instead!! Am I wrong? But aren’t they fun and pretty and brilliant? I’m absolutely thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding because – [balloons, obviously?] – it’s a real family affair, with the little ones even helping to make the wedding favours! The venue is London Shenley Club (Hertfordshire). The pics by our lovely friend and sponsor Nicola Norton Photography are a breath of fresh air, the details are wonderfully creative and Becky and Liam are just the most gorgeous-looking pair too!

Becky and Liam described their big day as like a big, summer children’s birthday party, with cricket! They included all the best things about summer: the outdoors, sunshine, cricket, Pimms, barbecued food, ice cream, children running around in the grass… and you know what? When a wedding is all about family and children it becomes SO much FUN!

Wedding cakes are crowd pleasers – everyone waits for the ‘cutting the cake’ moment at any traditional wedding. And who doesn’t love that wedding cakes are all sponge and chocolate flavoured layers these days?! I get it. Wedding cakes are one tradition we love to keep (while I for one am perfectly happy to throw nearly every other tradition out the window!) – and Rosalind Miller‘s new wedding cake collection fits the bill perfectly.
