Last month it was announced that the laws governing where folks get married in England and Wales might change – and it’s about time, we think! We dream of windswept elopements on sea cliffs, of secret woodland glades for our tipis and festoon-lit wedding celebrations… and of creating and speaking our own vows which don’t include legal jargon or a single religion if we don’t want them to! We’ll be watching the development of that little story carefully here at English Wedding HQ.

Today’s wedding inspiration shoot fits perfectly into the free-spirited, beautiful boho vibe… it’s from wedding photographer www.katiemortimore.com who worked with a lovely creative team to put together a stunning backdrop for a natural or humanist wedding by the beach. With a beautiful dress by Lisa the Dressmaker, flowers from Bellafiori and props / styling by Wonderlands, who provided the props (we LOVE!!!) and gorgeous stationery from Ananya Cards.

Happy Friday everyone!

So today’s wedding… it’s just gorgeous, with so many elegant DIY styling touches. Jen & Mick got married on 28th July 2018 at the Granary Estates in Woodditton. Jen was a really chilled bride and the wedding was really relaxed and full of smiles all day. Jen’s Jenny Packham dress suits her perfectly – she’s absolutely stunning, don’t you think? And Mick looks fabulous in a Ted Baker suit with a coral and ivory buttonhole to match Jen’s gorgeous bouquet! Images are by lovely Sally at Rose Images, and the venue is The Granary Estates. Flowers are by Clare Jones Floral Design.

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re staying safe and cosy in this blustery weather! Today’s wedding is the perfect distraction from the wind and rain – Mimi and Jacob married on the 5th of January and incorporated so many cool ideas into their totally gorgeous and unique DIY wedding. The boys are all rocking a tux and dickie bow (and loving the James Bond look!); Mimi is absolutely stunning in a beautiful lace dress and veil. The details though… and the care and creativity these guys put into making their wedding a true reflection of their personalities is amazing!

Dodmoor house is beautiful without any extra decoration, but there’s also so much room to make it your own and add your own personality to the place. I always wanted a barn-style wedding and Dodmoor house ticked that box. But Jacob and I also enjoy lots of quirky things and different hobbies, which we were able to show in our table decorations. Each table fitted a different theme – games and superheroes (for Jacob), animals & crafts (for me) and a lego top table with matching wedding cake, as we both enjoy building lego together. This was all the handiwork of my very talented sister (and maid of honor), who handmade all the decorations including a differently themed tree centerpiece for each table, lego figurines of each member of the wedding party, placemats, and bunting.

Planning the entertainment for your wedding can be stressful at any time, but a Christmas wedding? How do you strike the right balance? Do you go fully Jingle Bells, or ignore the festive feeling and stick to the songs and sounds that matter to you? The thing is, with those blazing log fires, mistletoe, and frosty weather – all the better for snuggling close – winter is an incredibly romantic time of year. So, whatever theme you choose for your wedding, it has the potential to be magical. Your wedding entertainment is that little sprinkling of fairy dust on top, that makes the whole thing sparkle.

So, grab some spices, mull some wine and have a little read through our guide to choosing the best entertainment for your winter wedding.

This shoot celebrates two fierce females, who want their union to be bursting with colour and fun. Their wedding is a contrast to identikit muted colour palettes and shuns traditional elements that we have come to expect with weddings; it’s a call out to brides and grooms (and everybody in between) who are looking for inspiration for an against the grain wedding, in both spirit and design detail. Truly authentic direction and photography style ensured that people could look at these images and relate with meaning to the story behind them.

Coming up with the concept was easy, as it’s all the things that we love the most; golden hour dancing, lots of flowers and bright colours. Our brief to suppliers focused on a fresh take on an English vintage summer fete vibe, with some glitter and nostalgia thrown in!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely relaxing weekend – and staying cosy and warm! Isn’t it freezing out there?!! Our mountains have just a sprinkling of snow on the tops this week! Before I begin today’s feature I wanted to put out a little reminder about our 50% offer on advertising packages for the coming year – you can still save until Monday, on either my Tier 2 or Tier 3 packages. Find all the details you need here!

So in October I was invited by the lovely people at Storrs Hall to come stay and see their hotel – it was an easy offer to accept, so on a quiet Monday evening me and Mr English Wedding packed our bags and headed into the Lake District for a treat!

Although today’s wedding starts with a church service, the vibe is wonderfully whimsical and woodlandy, with celebrations under canvas and even a hand fasting ceremony in the afternoon! The venue is Bedfordshire’s enchanting Tofte Manor; the photographer is our lovely friend and English Wedding member Nicola Norton Photography.

Gorgeous couple Georgina and Ben had a relaxed and beautiful wedding in the summer. Their day is beautifully styled with glorious bouquets of pink peonies, purple and coral blooms with splashes of greenery and fabulous textures. The peony styling continues through to the wedding cake, which is displayed prettily on rustic wooden tables at the wedding breakfast. Georgina’s stunning lace dress is the star of the show, and her delicate flower crown is just beautiful!

Hey lovelies! How many of you have thought about your confetti moment? If you’ve planned it, you’re an amazing genius and we salute you. (There might still be some brilliant tips here you can use!) If you haven’t really thought about it much, or you’re assuming your guests will just bring some confetti on the day, then read on. Because confetti is the funnest wedding tradition of all. It makes for amazing photos, it involves all of your guests, makes everyone laugh and smile, guarantees a few comedy moments and can be as beautiful as it is unforgettable… if you get it right.
