I love Ben & Sarah’s barn wedding – they’re both gorgeous, Sarah’s dress is beautiful and they look just perfect together. I also adore the outdoor shots – those huge trees are one of my favourite things in wedding photography this year! – and the venue is pretty amazing with books lining all the walls. I really like their unique stationery as well, and Sarah’s bouquet is fabulous. I’m sure you’ll be inspired by all their awesome details too!

It’s true you’re unlikely to have heard of ‘corkage’ until you plan your wedding… but it’s a topic which comes up on wedding forums over and over again – and a shocker! This, and other hidden costs to booking a venue, is discussed on the latest fab wedding planning video by Revelry Events. There’s plenty to think about: VAT, exclusive use and curfews…

Lovely Susannah and Holly talk us through the major considerations when hiring a venue, including having a plan B in case of bad weather and being allowed to bring in the suppliers YOU want rather than the venue’s own. (Top tip: always, always research your DJ and never rely on a venue’s recommendation without having seen them!)


I’m sure you’re already familiar with Neil Walker Photography – but if you missed these two gorgeous Sussex weddings do please go and have a look! We featured Kate & Russell’s Farbridge wedding in February, and Victoria and Will’s countryside wedding in Friston back in October. Neil and Sarah have become friends of the English Wedding Blog since – and I’m thrilled to be welcoming them as an official sponsor this morning.

Hasn’t it felt as though spring is finally here this week? I’ve been walking in the hills before work each morning and enjoying the warmth of the sun on my face – it’s been bliss! And so I wanted to bring a little springtime to the blog for you today. This shoot is full of delicious florals and beautiful Charlotte Balbier gowns, in the loveliest natural setting… and showcases a whimsical bridal style which is just perfect for the warmer months.

Victoria and Stefano’s wedding is gorgeous: their style is city chic; they married in Manchester and made their day personal by enlisting friends and family to help – but they didn’t stress about details and focused more on creating an amazing party atmosphere. As Victoria says, “Don’t get carried away paying a fortune for tiny details which may look pretty but go unnoticed! Invest your money in the things that people will remember – the food, drinks and dancing!
