Today’s featured wedding was a classic white wedding with the most beautiful church arch. A very relaxed elegant feel with lots of involvement from the family – and the prettiest florals you can imagine. I just love the archway covered in flowers and foliage by lovely Caroline, owner of Foxy Buds Floral Design – it makes the prettiest backdrop for photos and has a traditional feel to it which I think is wonderful.

The brief I gave my florist (Caroline at Foxy Buds) was “White with greenery presented in a natural/wild style.” And Foxy Buds completely delivered. I was really nervous before the big day because I had completely overdosed on Pintrest and Instagram and so I thought it would be impossible to bring that picture in my head to life. That nervousness was a complete waste of time – Caroline’s flowers were more beautiful that anything I had seen elsewhere. James and I constantly referred to the word “relaxed” when talking about what we wanted from our big day and that’s exactly the same feel I wanted (and got) from the flowers.

Today’s editorial feature is simply divine. I adore the natural colour palette, the earthy styling and dramatic florals – this is the perfect combination of grace and organics, and I hope you will love it as much as I do!

I’ve heard some criticism of styled shoots recently (did you catch me on The Icing On The Cake podcast this week and last? Zoe did a brilliant job putting together interviews with me and Kat from Rock n Roll Bride where we shared our thoughts on wedding planning, trends and styled shoots! It’s worth a listen!) – namely that they can be too aspirational and expensive to recreate for a full scale wedding.  Today’s shoot on the English Wedding Blog is perfect to me because the look is achievable: it’s beautiful in simplicity, the table arrangements are perfect for a display area being wild and natural, and the look created is laid back, uncomplicated and frankly a beautiful breath of fresh air.

Today’s wedding is incredible – I fell hard for the gorgeous red peony bouquet, which matches beautiful bride Charlotte’s hair perfectly! The venue is spectacular… if you’re looking for a wedding venue in the south east of the country, and want to make a real statement – then this is absolutely one to go see! David and Charlotte’s day is filled with thoughtful handmade touches, beautiful moments, and love and laughter. I hope you love it as much as I do!

We got married at Battle Abbey School in Battle, East Sussex. I grew up in Hastings (which is just down the road) and David has come to adore the coast so the setting and the location was perfect for us. For our wedding we decided on a book theme. Both of us are avid writers and readers and the love of a book is what heavily fueled one of our first conversations. Battle Abbey offered the opportunity to have our wedding breakfast in their library – which convinced us that it was the perfect setting for our day. Around the wedding we had various literature related items – book centerpieces, paper flowers, a table plan constructed of book pages. It was great to bring that love of ours into such a special day. I think the style of our wedding was quite classic, with the setting of Battle, the tails for the boys and lace on my dress.

Just one look at Rachael’s gorgeous dress and I was hooked on this stunning wedding from Huntsham Court. Lovely English Wedding Directory member Justina from HD Moments shared it with us, and I hope you will love watching it as much as I do!

As a wedding videographer, my work takes me to several places, but one of my favorite places is London – even when the weather is freezing, it is lovely to click wedding pictures there. As a London wedding videographer, I was tasked to document the winter wedding of Rachael and Josh at Huntsham Court.

The “made for each other” pair!

In this Huntsham court wedding video, you can clearly witness the joy and happiness of Rachael and Josh – they are finally solidifying their bond of love, and it is a surreal feeling, as they told me. The bride looks remarkable in her attire – the outfit she picked out flattered her curves in the right way, and suited her marvelously. The hair, accessories, and shoes were picked out with a lot of thought – everything matched with the overall theme of the wedding. The groom wasn’t to be outdone – he too looked fit and dapper in his suit. He carried it off with confidence and his eagerness was apparent in his demeanor. He couldn’t wait to meet his soon-to-be-wife at the altar.

Setting your wedding day priorities early on is imperative

It means you can divide up your budget according to what is important to you both for your day, making sure you don’t waste your budget on things you don’t need or want! As a wedding planner, I work with couples to help them plan their dream day.

One of the very first things we do is look at priorities. It so interesting to see who picks which area as the most important. So here is what to do…

Write a list of every element of your wedding day.

For example: venue, food, drink, ceremony, guests, entertainment, attire, cake, stationery, location etc.

Make sure you both have the same list and rate the items into order so that 1 is the most important.

Then compare.

Now it’s likely that you and your partner’s lists will be different.

Today’s real wedding is romantic, feminine and oh so pretty – the kind of wedding so many girls dream of, brought to life with a wonderfully elegant style. Beautiful bride Amy’s dress is divine – I adore the palest pink hue which works beautifully with the bridesmaids’ soft grey dresses. Words and images are by our lovely sponsor, Somerset wedding photographer Sandy at Love In Focus.

Getting to shoot any Somerset wedding photography on a bright and sunny day is one of the many upsides of my job – so getting to photograph a wedding at Aldwick Court Farm on a bright and sunny day is just about as good as this job gets! Amy and Ben chose the perfect venue for their spring wedding.

On the day I arrived at Amy’s parents’ house in Bristol to take some shots of Amy as she got ready for the day. Amy looked amazing in her dress with beautiful lace detail and chiffon on the skirt that gave her a wonderful silhouette.

Today’s shoot is so full of ideas I just had to share it with you. From hand painted calligraphy signage to a floral swing, copper-splashed stationery and a fabulously elegant see-through table plan – there are so many things you could take and use for your own weddings. I’m starting the feature with a handful of images taken at dusk because they’re just SO beautiful! Huge thanks to Anne at Elizabeth Rose Events for sharing this with us all today – you can find a full supplier list at the end of the feature. All images are by Naomi Gabrielle Photography.

With a woodland in winter theme we shot the images at Spirit Lake in Surrey Hills, working with some amazing suppliers, all of which are detailed below. I was keen to show more winter/autumnal colours in an outdoor wedding as well as showcasing the natural beauty of the English woodland and scenery around the venue.

Gorgeous summer florals for a Pendley Manor wedding with Nicola Norton Photography (35)
FEATURED

Is anyone else dreaming of summer breezes and pretty country flowers already? I know I’m a little early… but already we’re planning blog features for late spring and I’m excited to see long, golden wedding days on my screen again! Let’s spoil ourselves this cold Wednesday morning and pretend we’re back in July with gorgeous Alex & Jamie’s wedding, shall we?

The venue was Pendley Manor, a magnificent country home with 33 4-poster bedrooms and expanses of immaculate lawns and landscaped gardens. The hotel is grade II listed and set in 35 acres of beautifully landscaped and wooded parkland close to the picturesque Hertfordshire town of Tring.

Alex chose pretty daisies as the key flower for the nine bridesmaids bouquets, which I think looks really lovely with a touch of gypsophila. For her own bouquet she added bright summery flowers:  – lisianthus and pale pink roses along with the softest blue delphiniums. Overall styling was sweet and simple – feather-shaped kraft place names stamped with guests’ names, and more summer garden flowers on the tables. I LOVE the milk churns full of flowers outside the church, don’t you?

I know a lot of guys who’d agree with me that Rushia and David’s wedding is damn near perfect. There’s a bathtub full of cold Budweiser bottles, a chilled out firepit, music, a BBQ buffet – the groom looks awesome in a skull patterned waistcoat and his groomsmen are rocking very cool, mismatched (ie their own) suits! Of course perfection comes from having such a beautiful bride with the prettiest bouquet, gorgeous Sophia Tolli dress and bridesmaids in pink sparkly dresses… this is a really amazing wedding and I just know you’re going to love it! Watch out for creatively-named place settings(!), vintage vehicles and a confetti cannon!

We had Capri tents and the styling was key to making it feel cosy and comfortable! I made some signs for the wedding using calligraphy and I absolutely loved doing it! I also made the place names and favours. A good friend of mine did two huge chalk boards for us: one the order of the day and the other the table plan. We didn’t really have a theme, but I knew I wanted pale pink bridesmaid dresses so that would be our main colour and white. We had lovely invitations with foliage around the edge so we incorporated this in to the wedding, decorating the tents with huge tree branches.

These two gorgeous people know how to get married in style. I was over the moon to feature their joyful elopement photos last year; roll on a few months and I’m even happier to see and share their fabulous wedding blessing and party with you all. I’m 100% of the opinion that a wedding doesn’t have to be formal, or follow traditions or rules, or include even the slightest little nod to etiquette… all that matters is that you LOVE getting married and you celebrate in the way that means most to you, as a couple.

It’s a total bonus that Nick and Kristina’s celebrations look so amazing! I hope you love their story as well: they’re brilliant people who both work for non-profit organisations and it fits so perfectly that they chose to celebrate at The Cinema Museum – a venue I’d love to see saved for future generations as well! It’s where Charlie Chaplin grew up, and the museum is in desperate danger of being evicted and the building left to an uncertain fate. You can find out more here: http://www.cinemamuseum.org.uk

Liz and Richard’s day couldn’t have been more perfect for the English Wedding Bible, with their afternoon tea followed by a trip on a red vintage bus to the beautiful Great House at Sonning! My favourite shots of their day are on page 132 of our digital magazine, but I simply had to show you some more on the blog!

Liz’s dress – from the Willowby by Watters collection – is absolutely beautiful, and she suits it so perfectly as though it was made for her. Richard in his Reiss suit is just as gorgeous as his bride, and their little family makes this one of the loveliest weddings I’ve seen recently.

For your wedding to be truly unique I can totally recommend shopping around to find the independent designers and creatives across the UK who – like me – don’t subscribe to mainstream ideas or bland design. I fall in love – over and over again – with the makers we find through the pages of this beautiful wedding blog. I’m a huge Etsy fan, which I think says it all! I love the wedding industry for being a melting pot of creative folks, some of whom are destined to create ever more beautiful things and who I don’t doubt will be household names in years to come. Take Ailsa Munro, for example…
