Hello lovelies and happy Friday! I’m currently in Manchester prepping for (lunch) my calligraphy workshop tomorrow – it’s a sell out and I’m so excited! – but couldn’t leave English Wedding without a gorgeous feature for your Friday… and oh my, this wedding is special! Kate is more stunning than I have words for, in a beautiful Suzanne Neville gown. She tried on over 100 wedding dresses… and I’m so glad she found this divine design from Suzanne’s collection because it is breathtaking.

Let’s not forget the gorgeous groom – Jonathan’s black tie wedding look is just perfect: the tux is from Hugo Boss, with a bow tie from Tom Ford – I love this American wedding trend, which we’re seeing more and more in the UK these days. Oh, and before I forget – that opulent flower wall? Hired from Silks in Bloom. Isn’t it amazing?!

The English Wedding Blog showcases Kelsey Rose 2019 bridal collection (29)
FEATURED

There’s a blog post on the Kelsey Rose blog right now which I absolutely loved reading – about creating “timeless magic at affordable prices” – and I absolutely love them for that. In the wake of a royal wedding and with a trend for luxe, opulent floristry and wedding styling on the rise, I do love to see a more affordable, but still beautiful, bridal collection. Kelsey Rose’s Ivory Collection for 2019 ticks all the boxes – the dresses are stunning and with a timeless appeal. We introduced their bridesmaids collection on English Wedding a few weeks ago – now it’s time for their beautiful bridal gowns to make an entrance!

The 2019 Ivory Collection from Kelsey Rose is sleek and classic, with tactile beauty for a contemporary bridal look.

Speciality beading adorns divine satins, soft chiffons and luxe organza across the collection. Expert fabric combinations add a tactile beauty to these bridal gowns, with delicate lace and crepe styles a key feature of the Kelsey Rose 2019 collection.

It wouldn’t be English summertime without marquees popping up in fields everywhere for country fairs, parties and of course weddings! But wedding marquees come in all shapes and sizes, and the logistics of booking a marquee are more than a little complicated! Here are some common wedding marquee fails – and tips to help you avoid them!

 

Wedding marquee fail #1 – the unexpected water feature in the corner

Think of your wedding marquee as a big tent. Remember camping? You know tent pegs? A marquee has a slightly bigger version – basically marquees are supported by long stakes which are hammered into the ground. If there’s an underground water pipe in the wrong place, you’ll get more than a sprinkling of confetti on your big day! (And the thought of the marquee company hammering into a gas pipeline is terrifying.)

How to avoid it

Make sure your marquee company does a site visit before you book or pay your deposit. Of course, if your wedding venue has a regularly used marquee site, it’s likely to be a far safer bet!

What could be a more romantic setting than the Italian countryside, a monastery no less, set amongst rolling hillsides and with its very own vineyard? The Favari Monastery dates from the 17th century and has been beautifully renovated as a destination wedding venue. For today’s English Wedding feature, the monastery serves as a beautiful backdrop for a group of local wedding suppliers who came together to create a lush, modern wedding style complete with al fresco table settings and a bride and groom just radiant with Italian style!

Wedding planner Nadia from Loving Marche sent us the shoot, which features stunning images from Francesco Cesaroni. Nadia is based in Le Marche, close to the monastery, and offers wedding styling, planning and coordination services for couples marrying in Italy.

The florals really make this wedding style come alive: with lush, soft textures and flowing shapes, the bouquet and arrangements are just perfect for an Italian celebration. White peonies, delphiniums and sweet peas combined with lots of foliage make for such a stunning bouquet!

This gorgeous pair celebrated with a relaxed vineyard wedding reception where guests could relax in an outdoor sitting room – a space filled with comfy sofas, chairs and hay bales. As with every wedding our friends from York Place Studios share with us, this is a day full of character where the atmosphere just zings through my screen and makes me smile, chuckle and grin my head off.

Wedding photography should never be all about the details. Don’t let wedding blogs fool you – planning can be detail-focused, that’s fine. But on the day all that matters is the people, the love, the laughter, the party. And when your memories arrive through the post box a few weeks after your wedding (because that, my lovelies, is what your wedding photos are: memories to keep forever) – it’s the moments of joy and connection and pure happiness which are important.

Relaxed 'good life' wedding blog with an outdoor ceremony on a farm, images by Special Day Wedding Photos (7)
FEATURED

My top tip for your wedding is to let your daughter wear her rainbow roller-skates, and skate down the aisle!! Lovelies, this is one of my favourite weddings of the year – gorgeous Katherine and Nick made pretty much everything themselves, and planned a relaxed, informal celebration at Whitemoor Farm with a really individual and unique style. It’s just FABULOUS – you’re going to love all of this! Images are by lovely Devon wedding photographer and English Wedding team member Anthony from Special Day Wedding Photos.

“I absolutely loved Katherine and Nick’s wedding at Whitemoor Farm in North Devon. The couple had moved down from the Midlands to the countryside of North Devon for a ‘good life’, and have a small-holding. They were really chilled out and relaxed which reflected in the way they decorated the venue. The styling was fabulous with an emphasis on the retro. Katherine runs art classes which was telling in the styling of the wedding. The couple were very keen to keep the day as relaxed as possible so didn’t want to spend too much time with family group-shots and couple shots, which is great.  I can really loose myself in the photography at these types of weddings. I love to capture the day as it naturally happens as it gives the images authenticity.

Happy weekend, lovelies! There’s a definite chill in the air this morning, so I’m feeling the need to snuggle up with my guy, in all our cosiest blankets and throws, supping hot chocolate and – is it too early?! – in front of our new fireplace. The plan for the day is most definitely comfort food and staying toasty!

It feels like the perfect opportunity to share some winter wedding ideas with you. Lovely Katie Rogers Photography sent me this shoot full of luscious velvets and Wild Rubus‘s deliciously textured winter florals. The theme for the day was a rich, velvet palette with a hint of metallic, which works beautifully. The dresses by Wendy Makin and Cymbeline are just divine; and I especially adore the velvety vows books by Elmo Paper Stories.

Lizzie and Dan’s wedding is a classic – timeless styling, an elegant colour palette and beautiful sunshine… the flowers are lush, in a soft palette of dusky pinks, and the beautiful atmosphere they created is one of tranquility and romance. Lizzie is stunning in her Cizzy Bridal dress, and Dan is every bit the classic English groom in a smart navy suit with Ted Baker waistcoat.  The venue is Wadhurst Castle, and all of their lovely photographs are by Nick Davies Photography.

I loved getting ready- we used the bridal room in the castle so both mums and my bridesmaids had the whole morning together- it was such fun, we gave out pressies and Dan had written me a great card which made me laugh and cry! I also remember the moment the door opened to the walled garden & I saw all of the guests turn as I walked up the aisle, from then it really was the most amazing whirlwind!

Eco styling ideas for a summer picnic wedding with Bohotanical and the Gilded Fern (40)

I am a wedding blogger with vegan tendencies. Eco is a big deal for me, and vegan is a #lifegoal I’m working on steadily (chocolate is holding me back)! My Instagram is half filled with wedding pretty; and half with vegan and organic lifestyle influencers’ feeds. These two things make me so happy… and it’s a rare treat indeed to see my two favourite things come together on English Wedding! Gwenda from Bohotanical – you know I love you, right? With the deepest admiration and respect for THE most amazing team of wedding creatives, let’s have a look at today’s photoshoot, shall we?

“I first had the pleasure of working at Bore Place in 2017, and was immediately captivated by both its beauty and the ecological ethos that underpins it. The founders of the charitable trust wanted to explore how to live and work sustainably, understanding and recognising the interconnectedness of the environmental, social, economic and political aspects of sustainability. They sought to achieve this through practical action and by working cooperatively with others in order to share and inspire change, which they do through community projects, education, green tourism, and leading by example on the farm itself. I was thrilled when they agreed to host the shoot!

Step back in time to a world of glamour, style, sophistication and graceful elegance where romance blossomed under watchful eyes and often amidst unspoken words that stay locked up in the heart; an era where love is conveyed via series of handwritten and perfumed letters written and exchanged between the beloved; when simple gestures such as a look or a favourite book are the loveliest of mementos to remember your beloved by; a time where romance is not always expressed verbally or openly like in our modern day but still felt deeply with the briefest of touch or the gentlest gaze.

Gorgeous newlyweds Fiona and Ashley’s spring wedding from Stratton Court Barn is just fabulous – they used rich purple tones to create a luxe, sophisticated wedding theme and chose a venue with oodles of cosy character which needed just a few creative touches to bring it to life. With a canopy of fairy lights and pretty floral styling, this is a lovely wedding I’ve been excited to share with you! Images are by our lovely team member Carol Elizabeth Photography, who is based in Oxfordshire and gets a glowing review from the happy couple!

We searched for photographers in Oxfordshire and looked at lots of websites! We wanted a more natural style of photography and we didn’t want our photos to look too posed, so we narrowed down our search by picking photographers who fitted our desired style. We used price to narrow down our search further as we had a maximum budget in mind. We then had phone calls with our shortlisted photographers as it was important to us that they were easy to talk to and understood what we were looking for. Another thing that we took into account was whether the photographer had been to our venue or whether they would be happy to visit the venue beforehand, as we wanted them to be familiar with the layout and where would be good spots to take photos. Carol ticked all the boxes for us.

Do keep an eye on our Instagram later today, as we’re going to investigate one of the Lake District’s most beautiful destination wedding venues – we’ll be at Storrs Hall from 5pm and I can’t wait to show you (virtually) around!! Before we go though, I have the most wonderful summery wedding to share with you. Esther and Sam’s day is so blissfully bright and happy, with stunning hanging foliage and a vibrant sunflower theme!  Let’s face it… all these autumn leaves are making it a tad chilly so let’s keep the summer vibe going for as long as we can on the blog!

My bouquet had some sunflowers in which I loved! My husband keeps buying me sunflowers now…! The bouquets and button holes were all from our own gardens. The flowers in the church were bought by my mum then arranged by a family friend who lives in the village. My Granny dried rose petals from her garden for the confetti. They were all very ‘wild’ and colourful.
